    ...and don't give me Andrew Luck or Trent Richardson or some other highly touted prospect that is likely going high.

    I'm talking about someone who is either could be a bit known or a bit under the radar that you think is going to be a good one.

    I'll give you mine:

    Dontari Poe.

    6'5" 350 lb NT/DT....strong like bull and very athletic for a man his size.

    I'll give you two:

    The guy I really want, but probably won't get: LSU CB Morris Claiborne
    The guy that will more likely be in our range: North Alabama CB Janoris Jenkins

    South Carolina DE/OLB Melvin Ingram is growing on me, which is why I have a thread for Janoris and Melvin. :D

    Robert Turbin,
    RB, Utah State

    Carries 229
    yards 1416
    avg 6.2

    The first thing I thought when I saw Turbin was, “Wow, this guy is huge.” He’s really imposing physically and he translates that to the field,
    Hes been absolutely dominant for Utah State over his last two seasons, averaging 6.3 yards per carry in 2009 and nearly seven yards per carry in 2011.

    He is quick to the hole and is used out of a lot of different offensive looks (gun, pistol, single back, I-back).

    Runs low and has excellent balance and deceptive speed for a guy his size. Surprisingly great on third downs as a receiver out of the backfield.

    Really complete looking back with the whole package.

    Good quickness and a nose for the end zone.
    Really good at keeping a low center of gravity, making it tough for defenders to bring him down.


    a smaller version of Trent Richardson*, RB, Alabama 5-11 #220

    but not by much

    I think I'd trade Felix for him - I love Felix but this guy looks the part a tough RB

    Love the Poe choice.

    I'm going to go with:

    Marshall DE/OLB Vinny Curry since I cant choose Ingram. Sticking to the 3-4 OLB pass rushing figure.

    I've a soft spot for Kellen Moore and Nick Foles, I'm really confused by Moore not being higher rated as a prospect honestly

    EDIT: That's what I get for not reading the directions :eek::

    Ok, so no top guys. Here is my "under the radar pet cat."

    CB Trumaine Johnson, Montana

    His stock is dropping because of an altercation with officers involving a noise complain in which he had to be contained with a stun gun, but if he interviews well, he would end up being a steal in the later rounds. He will probably move to FS in the NFL.

    is t. j. mcdonald going to enter the draft?

    if he is...i want him.

    his dad was one of the best safeties to ever play the game imo.

    he didn't fall far from the tree.

    I'm stuck between a medically cleared Peter Konz and David DeCastro.

    I'm also big on Markelle Martin and Brandon Boykin.

    Jarvis Jones, if he declares, would probably jump to the top of the list.

    Future pet cat is LSU safety Eric Reid.

    That's a good one; reminds me of a bigger Ahmad Bradshaw.

    I like OG David DeCastro, Stanford. As much as I like Clairborne; I don't think he will be around when we pick. The DeCastro pick makes sense for me because it would aid in our running and passing attack. C Pete Konz, Wisconsin would be a nice addition in round 2. I think he may fall do to his injury. CB's Jenkins and Harris may also fall do to their problems off the field.

    The homer in me likes Vinny Curry from Marshall and Bruce Irvin from WVU.

    I also like the LSU CB.

    Bruce Irvin is a speed demon off the edge. He may be a one trick pony right now, but if he is put in the right system he can wreck some protection schemes.

    Kevin Zeitler from Wisconsin is a road grader at guard, only concern is whether he can pass block.

    I really like Aaron Corp QB out of Richmond he's a UsC transfer that I think we can get as a 7th rounder or as a undrafted free agent. I feel comfortable with McGee as backup so I really don't see the need to draft a QB before the 6th.
