    I enjoyed this thread last year. So let's do it again. Who are your favorite players by position in this Draft? This does not mean who you think is best, but if they are your favorites, the answer is fine. There is no criteria here. Just share your answers how you see fit. Mine will have 2 admitted homer picks.

    QB...Nick Foles, Arizona
    RB...Trent Richardson, Alabama
    FB...Bruce Figgins, Georgia
    WR...Juron Criner, Arizona
    OT...Matt Kalil, USC
    OG...David DeCastro, Stanford (Please, please, please...)
    C...Peter Konz, Wisconsin
    TE...LaDarius Green, Louisiana - Lafayette

    DE...Jared Crick, Nebraska
    DT...Dontari Poe, Memphis
    OLB...Courtney Upshaw, Alabama
    ILB...Luke Kuechly, Boston College
    CB...Jayron Hosley, Va Tech
    S...Markelle Martin, Oklahoma State

    I am going to only do players I think we have a shot at drafting, so I won't pick Luck/Griffin/Blackmon etc.

    QB...Kirk Cousins, Mich.State
    RB...LaMichael James, Oregon
    FB...Rhett Ellison, USC ( I like that he is a Hybrid, and at 6'5 could play TE if needed
    WR...Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma ( fill in for Robinson if we lose him)
    OT...Cordy Glenn, Georgia ( he can play multiple spots, and would be an option if DeCastro is gone and we slide down to acquire more picks)
    OG...David DeCastro, Stanford (Right there with you on this)
    C...Peter Konz, Wisconsin
    TE...Orson Charles, we have a need for TE if Bennett walks, which is likely. I like what Charles would offer as a #2 TE. (Plus it's my homer pick, I'm a UGA fan)

    DE...Jared Crick, Nebraska
    DT...Dontari Poe, Memphis
    OLB..Bruce Irvin, West Va, He is an athlete, and can get to the Qb.
    ILB...Luke Kuechly, Boston College, he would make a nice match up with lee, we'd have to move Carter to the outside most likely)
    CB...Brandon Boykin, Georgia ( I love his explosiveness. He could be a 3rd CB this year, and immediately help with our return man woes, Also Casey Heyward from Vandy)
    S...Janzen Jackson,McNeese State. he has really nice range, interested to see what he runs.

    Ditto. Except I'm also limiting my selections to players we're at all likely to pick. My thoughts on some players and positions have shifted a bit over the first few days of the combine. A few of these are possible classic Cowboy UDFA diamonds. My list has a slight ACC tinge.


    QB...Aaron Corp, Richmond (USC transfer)
    RB...LeMichael James, Oregon (Love Rainey of UF, too.)
    FB...Chad Diehl, Klempsuhn
    WR...Joe Adams, Arkansas (Coale and Jarrett of VPI, Graham of NC State)
    OT...Zebrie Sanders, FSU
    OG...David DeCastro, Stanford (second favorite player in the draft)
    C...Phillip Blake, Baylor
    TE..Mike Egnew, Missouri (far and away)

    DE...Akiem Hicks, Regina (Derek Wolfe, Cincinatti)
    DT...Don't really have one. If I have to, I'll say Brandon Thompson, Klempsuhn
    OLB..Shea McClellin, Boise
    ILB...I love Kuechly, but I think there's zero chance he ends up in Dallas.
    CB...Chase Minnifield, Virginia
    S...Matt Daniels, Duke (favorite player in the draft)

    Yeah I remember Corp playing over Barkley at USC a few years ago. He has some potential, shame he blew his knee out.

    And I live in South Jersey about 15 mins away from Philly and actually got to see Proffered play live twice over the past 2 years and watched almost all of his games on TV.He was a man amongst boys in the MAC for sure. Good size, and above average speed. Only thing that is going to keep him back are his injury concerns.

    Fleener is gonna be a frickin' stud, straight out of the box, but we'd have to take him in round #1 or trade up in round #2 to get him.

    QB-- Case Keenum, Houston... he was a system quarterback, but you can't ignore how productive he was...

    RB-- Lance Dunbar, North Texas... had 4224 yards rushing and over 1000 yards receiving in college, he kind of reminds me of Phillip Tanner... average size, average speed, but he seems to see the field well...

    FB-- Cody Johnson, Texas... homer pick here, and I don't know if he's a good enough blocker for the NFL, but I think he'll prove to be a good pro...

    TE-- Ladarius Green, Louisiana-Lafayette... the Jay Novacek of the bayou... needs bulk, but will likely be an effective receiving threat with some stretch the field ability early in his career...

    WR-- TY Hilton, Florida International... I was surprised/ disappointed at his 40 time at the combine, but he was a versatile, productive weapon in college, both as a receiver and as a kick returner...

    C-- Philip Blake, Baylor... seemed to play his best against the best...

    OG-- Cordy Glenn, Georgia... his raw computer numbers are remarkably similar to Leonard Davis' coming out of college... he's just huge, but he can move, as he's shown at the combine...

    OT-- Bobby Massie, Mississippi...

    DE-- Akiem Hicks, Regina... this 325 pound Canadian reminds me of Cullen Jenkins...

    NT-- Hebron Fangupo, BYU... one of two stumpy widebodies I like, the other being Baylor's Nicolas Jean-Baptiste...

    OLB-- Sammy Brown, Houston... led the nation in tackles for loss last year...

    ILB-- Dont'a Hightower, Alabama... though I tend to favor the college prospects who put up good computer numbers, and though Hightower isn't likely to do so, the more I read and see of this guy, the more I like him... this might be a case of a 4.8 body topped by a 4.4 head...

    SS-- Matt Daniels, Duke... a late round prospect whose worst case scenario would be to become a special teams standout in the NFL...

    FS-- George Iloka, Boise State... he can play FS, he can play SS, he can play a little CB in a pinch, and he can even play some OLB if needed...

    CB-- Chase Minnifield, Virginia... the son of former NFL corner Frank Minnifield, Chase is IMO the most fundamentally sound corner in this draft... can't wait to see what he runs at the combine, from watching him play I'd guess his currently listed times are on the conservative side...

    Obviously, I didn't go for the best player at each position, Hos asked for my favorites... some of my favorites won't even be drafted...

    QB...Kirk Cousins, MSU
    RB...Terrance Ganaway, Baylor
    FB...(NO CLUE)
    WR...BJ Cunningham, MSU/Tommy Streeter, Miami (Love both for complete opposite reasons)
    OT...Cordy Glenn, UGA (kinda cheating, but if I get a tackle I want him to play OG)
    OG...David DeCastro, Stanford
    C...Peter Konz, Wisconsin
    TE...LaDarius Green, Louisiana - Lafayette

    DE...Jared Crick, Nebraska
    DT...Michael Brockers, LSU
    OLB...Courtney Upshaw, Alabama
    ILB...Dont'a Hightower, Alabama
    CB...Janoris Jenkins, North Alabama
    S...Mark Barron, Alabama

    Big MSU fan. If I could get one Spartan in this draft, it'd be Cunningham. Loved watching him in college. Good possession guy with nice hands. I like the measurables of Tommy Streeter, but I honestly haven't seen much of him.

    QB...Patrick Witt, Yale - probably as an UDFA
    RB...LaMichael James, Oregon - could be a 3rd round choice for us
    FB...Ryan Houston, North Carolina - an UDFA
    WR...Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech - a 3rd round pick with 1st round potential
    OT...Jonathan Martin, Stanford - smart good player
    OG...David DeCastro, Stanford - maybe at #14
    C...Peter Konz, Wisconsin - by far the best OC but 2nd round only pick
    TE...LaDarius Green, Louisiana - Lafayette - lots of upside

    DE...Akiem Hicks, Regina - a sleeper guy we could get 4th or 5th round
    DT...Alameda Ta'amu, Washington - another 3rd or 4th round guy
    OLB...Vinny Curry, Marshall - more upside than many of the 1st round guys
    ILB...Dont'a Hightower, Alabama - if we took him in the 1st, I would be ok
    CB...Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama - only 1 TD allowed in 3 yrs, take him
    S...George Iloka, Boise State - the new breed of safety
