Kayoh Posted April 3, 2013 Share Posted April 3, 2013 1. Dion Jordan, because there hasn't been a natural coverage LB talent like him in NFL history. At the end of the day, he would be able to solve every problem we have defensively. In one player, we'd be adding the ability not only to blanket the elite 6'6 TEs of the league, but also having the size and athletic ability to mirror and bring down athletic QBs like Cam, Kaep and Wilson. Literally the best defensive prospect in this draft in my opinion, and easily the single most unique defensive prospect, arguably of all time. He's got TE size, CB cover ability and potential as a pass rusher. The kind of guy you can build an entire defense around.2. Jonathan Cooper, because I haven't seen a guard with his combination of strength, agility, movement skills and balance in a really, REALLY long time. We need an elite G and honestly, if we'd draft Cooper, I'd want him to be our day 1 starter at LG with Blalock, Reynolds and Johnson battling it out to see who would start at RG. Cooper is the kind of guard that can actually open up a playbook, he's that good. He's significantly more athletic than any guard we have, and more of a bull than pretty much anyone we have as well. He'd give us more of a viable option to run pull sweeps, screens, and QB rollouts, he's just that good.That's it. It's a relatively weak class as far as top-end talent goes, but these guys are the cream of the crop in my opinion. Obviously Joeckel, Fisher and Johnson are all great prospects too, but I wouldn't want us to trade up for a tackle when guys like Terron Armstead, Luke Marquardt and Ryan Schraeder are available later and we already have Sam & Tyson locked up.
