With what is left of FA, I am going to assume we get 1 more CB who also has some STs ability. We looked at J Bush of the Packers recently, but he decided to re-sign with them. I think we bring in 1 more guy. Round 1 Assumptions: DeCastro is gone, along with Ingram, Cox, Poe and Coples. Top rated guys left include Brockers and Kirkpatrick and Kuechly on defense. On offense, Glenn and K Wright and Floyd. W Mercilus, DE/OLB, Illinois, 6-4, 261 lbs. - Won Ted Hendricks award as best DE in country last season - Led nation with 16 sacks, 9 forced fumbles, and 22.5 tackles for loss He can play OLB in RR's base defense as well as some DE in 43/exotic packages. I just don't think you can "luck into" Mercilus' productivity, especially in the conference that he played in. Finally, I would say this is a player with some upside as well. He's not a finished product. Round 2 Assumptions: Fleener is gone along with Konz. Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin, 6-4, 314 lbs. Cowboys definitely have interest in this player as they have already checked him out. Also, Zeitler has that coveted versatility in that he can also play OC. The Cowboys like him because he can block in space as well and get to the 2nd level. Round 3 Ladarius Green, TE, La-Lafayette, 6-6, 238 lbs. Green creates mulitiple mismatches for defenses. Garrett can line him up as a WR or in TE formations. In 2010, Green averaged 18 yards/catch. And against top competition, he also did produce. For example, vs Georgia (4-87-1), LSU (6-64), Nebraska (5-68). He has solid work habits and no character issues. Also, like Mercilus, he has significant upside working with our strength coaches. I think Green will also be a threat in the red zone with his size. Round 4 Josh Norman, CB, Costal Carolina, 6-0, 197 lbs. Norman is a long-armed press corner with size. The way RR likes 'em. He also has 13 careeer ints, long arms (32.5 inches), and is great on STs. Norman has the school record of 4 blocked punts. Round 4 Comp Pick (It's either a 4th or 5th rounder most likely, according to Adam.) Derek Wolfe, DT, Cinncinnati, 6-5, 295 lbs. Wolfe has been productive in both 2010 and 2011. His best year was last seaosn with 70 tackles, 21.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, and 2 FFs. Wolfe has some versatility as he lined up over the NT on 3rd downs. He is a hard worker in the weight room and practice. Round 5 J Wright, WR, Arkansas, 5-10, 182 lbs. Best in slot, has blazing speed. In 2011, 66 catches for SEC-best 1,117 yards and 12 TDs. Instinctive, reliable hands, and he is a savvy route runner. Mr. Reliable. Round 6 Tank Carder, ILB, TCU, 6-2, 236 lbs. I don't know if he'll last this long, but this draft slot agrees with NFLDraftScout's, so I am using it for now. Carder can make plays in both the run game and in coverage. I think he surprised people with how athletic he really is during the last two months. We need more depth at ILB, and Carder can provide that. Round 7 Brandon Hardin, FS, Oregon State, 6-3, 216 lbs. Hardin ran a 4.40 and 4.36 40 at his Pro Day. (Even if we add an extra 0.1 of a second, that's still pretty fast.) He also benched 225 lbs 24 times. Looks like his shoulder healed pretty well! Hardin was likely a 3rd or 4th rounder pre-injuring his shoulder, and he is now a late round pick (or maybe an UDFA). Hardin did play in the East-West Shrine Game to show that his shoulder had fully healed. In 2010, Hardin started all 12 games and also co-led the team with 12 Special Team tackles as well. He also had 3 FFs on the season, the 2nd highest on the team. Comments?
