#3-083

#3-099 (comp for Foxworth)

#4-120

#5-133 (swap with Lions-Chris Houston Trade)

#5-165 (comp for Boley)

#6-168 (procured from Lions-Chris Houston Trade)

#6-186

#1-019 DT – Brian Price – UCLA 6-2, 303

Babs will probably be suspended for 4 games starting the season. TD has said our problem with the pass rush last year was due to the interior line. Even with Jerry back we need more quality for our rotation. Plus, Price is a steal at this point. #17 player in the draft according to ESPN. Weatherspoon is the #33 ranked player and a huge reach at #19.

#3-083 OG - Jon Asamoah – Illinois 6-4, 300

#3 guard (#66 player overall) in the draft. Since guards drop in the draft we get a good deal here. This upgrades three spots on the line. Asamoah to LG, Blalock to RT, Clabo to RG.

#3-099 (comp for Foxworth) LB - Patrick Angerer – Iowa 6-0, 233

I don't know why people here are so high on Edds. Angerer is the man. Can play all three LB positions. Sideline to sideline player. Known as the emotional leader of the Iowa defense.

#4-120 DE - George Selvie - S. Florida 6-3, 252

Was considered a possible 1st round pick before the season started. Drops this far because: (1) had a down year, (2) is a pure 4-3 defensive end (worked out poorly as a 3-4 OLB). Tremendous first step off the edge. Has all the tools to be a top flight DE, just needs to consistently put it together.

#5-133 (swap with Lions-Chris Houston Trade) CB – A. J. Jefferson – Fresno St. 6-0, 193, 4.43/40

Had the best overall numbers of any CB at the combine. He was in the top three of every category. Sometimes you take a chance and draft the best athelete on the board. The Falcons did that last year when they drafted Adkins, they do it this year drafting Jefferson.

#5-165 (comp for Boley) WR – David Gettis – Baylor 6-3, 217 4.4/40

A lot of good tools. Developmental receiver that can make the team on special teams.

#6-168 (procured from Lions-Chris Houston Trade) C – J. D. Walton – Baylor 6-3, 300

A guy we can develop to eventually replace McClure. From Ourlads:

A three-year starter that transferred from Arizona State. Has done both the shotgun snap in the spread and conventional snap to the quarterback under center. Position/wall off type blocker. Creates inside running lanes by turning the down defender. Solid on the block back or "choke" block. Plays on his feet. Good agility and balance in close quarters. Plays with a good base and works to finish his blocks. Will drop his head at times in pass protection but generally slides and adjusts his mirror to wall off defender. Good hand quickness to lock out and position hands on the breast plate and get push on his target. Strong and crafty, but needs to be more consistent with his ability to recover and anchor in pass protection.

#6-186 RB – Alphonso Smith – Kentucky 6-0, 210 4.3/40

A pure speed back. Can make the team on special teams. Tons of upside to go with great measurables. May be the fastest player in the draft.

I don't really have a problem with any of those guys, excepting Selvie. I really like the write-up on Asamoah, the OG from Illinois, never saw him play. I also like Mitch Petrus of Arkansas, he's strong and has a mean streak according to Chris Mortensen.

Lewis playing behind Babs is a BEAST. People just don't know it because he's a second year guy behind Babs. Johnson on the other side also very good depth behind Jerry. We do NOT need a DT at 19. We need OLB or DE, period.

Plus, OG Jason Jerry (6-6, 340) will be there at 83 & is better than Asamoah. We certainly don't need another safety, CB, or 6th round RB. And we need a better C than 6th round too. Tennant should be there with our 3c pick. We also need a kicker BADLY (Tiffin in round 4). Then Gettis or maybe even Cooper for WR at 5 is about right. Unless of course we can get Ford (hello 4.28 40 kick returner/backup slot). After that, whatever is best player on the board.
