4. LB. Anthony Hines 6.3, 226, Tx. A&M, 

5. DT. Davon Hamilton 6-4, 310, O.S.

6. DT. Jordan Elliott, 6-4, 315, Missouri

7. DB. JR Reed, 6-1, 200,  Ga.  Also can be a returner. 

Some will say,, why 3 beast at DT ? Get while the gettin's good, cause these men will be the game changers that make the diferance in  winning or losing a tight game.

And lastly,, WE should get all our O# needs in FAcy,, Proven OL,  See last year first half of the season,, Nuff said. We have a very good O# , we need a Great D# to win it all. 

And if we were to have a draft like this one.. We would not be stopped.  TD don't know he needs my advise in who to get in the draft. Somebody tell him!! 

All of these players are ranked in a place we could draft them,, AT least on the Site I got my rankings...And I know some go up and some down.. Can't help that part, but correct now.

I'll say this , I've never made a Mock with all D#,, And probably never will again.. But this is our needs,, Fill all other needs in FAcy. 

And we can keep a rotation of the 3 beast DTs going , to not have a dead spot on the DL during a hard game. Rotate in and out to make sure we have constant pressure..

You actually think JR Reed will fall that far?

I personally think that it’s too much to hit on 3 DTs considering DQ wanted to bring back Tyeler Davison and we already have GJ97 and Senat under contract. Lawerence is probably enough, thus you can draft an OL. S in the second is probably too high as well since no matter what DQ will bring back Neal (I love him too, but his injury history is now a legitimate concern) but I do think DQ is comfortable with Kazee and a vet back there like Allen (If he doesn’t get cut). Love the Epensea pick, long lean and mean pass rusher that is stout vs the run that’s bigger than the 245 guys we usually have out there.

I don’t think we should draft 3 players at DT. We should bring back Davison, give Senat more snaps, and draft one stud.

I do agree with DE with the first round pick and S & LB in the mid rounds. I agree O-line should be a FA focus but we should draft at least one O-lineman too. 


We also need to discuss the RB position. Freeman will be gone, so do we roll with Brian Hill & Ollison as a RBBC or do we draft a good young RB? I’m not aware of any good RBs in FA to go after that we can afford.

Don’t really need to sign a RB, this draft class has extremely good RBs across the board. Might as well grab one on a cheap contract that doesn’t have the carrier put on him like FA ones do. 
 

OL has to be addressed too!

The question then is what round will be the most beneficial for us to draft a RB? 3rd?

That’s the thing like the value is absolutely the third because the hope is a RB doesn’t get picked till the second, then dudes start falling then bam, we score RB1 in the third that’s dynamic as can be! Pair him with Ollison for some power and bring back Keith Smith to pave holes while adding an OG in either FA or the draft and all of a sudden the comment to running the ball has no excuses!

In the rankings I made this from ,, That is close to were he will go, , I think we have some extra picks that I didn't use,, comp picks,, I had to use other picks to trade up to get a few of these in the latter rounds.. But all of these picks are very reallistic.. I don't do a mock unless it's possible.

Well, that's fine, i wasn't trying to draft people you want , I was drafting players I would like for us to get,, If we had these 3 beastly DTs ,, and 3 of the best ones for the pick in the draft,  This would turn our team into a much much stronger D# that wins Championships , just think about it ,, What a presents of a D# , think of how Powerful this line would be with 3 Where we could have one resting while the other Two reek havoc .... A great D# helps a O# get the ball back and creates turnover, AS the opposing QBs try to throw the ball with the D# Tackles in their face... Get the picture?  And with three ,, they could rotate and allow them all to rest when needed and never would be weak in that position.

Defense with every pick and 3 DT's? Seems overkill to me.

We have an extra 2nd round pick courtesy of the Sanu trade but we gave up our 6th in the Duke Riley trade. 

Yeap,, I did that on purpose,, WE have a good O#, , IMO we need to get our O# needs in fAcy,  take all the awesome D# possible in this D loaded DRaft,, get while the gettin is good!!

Not in my Draft,, I'm smarter than to draft an OL,, See last years Draft,, We should have gotten our OL men with Veterans ... Not drafted them,, I said it many times,, Get the OL in Verteran OL that are proven.. That's why we didn't make the playoffs last year. NO way.Now I will try to put a RB in when I make my 2nd and finial Mock,, But most of these players will remain. after the combines and studing the players until the draft.. I'll be pretty sure of who I'd like for us to draft. The thing is we don't need a RB near as bad as some on here think, Hill has improved and is getting better every year. I think he'll surprise you guys next year.

Wow,, I just now found out after I had checked out of the message board here.. And saw that the FO is looking hard at my first pick in my Mock,, And I had no idea they were considering him very seriously...  Ha! That tickled me Red and Black, and white!! I'd love it if we got this DE. AJ Epenesa ,, Iowa ... That's awesome...

We absolutely need RB. Hill is a Free Agent, Freeman is likely a cap casualty and Ito Smith has finished the last two seasons in IR. We absolutely need to address RB with the only clear cut guy that’s healthy is Ollison, and Ollison I don’t think can be an every down guy. 
 

We added FA OGs last year, two of them actually both didn’t turn out. Wherever we get them from we need an OG, and if it’s from FA then don’t cheap out and try to solve the problem with journeymen OL, spend the money and get someone good. We’ll likely add a drafted OL anyways to groom behind Alex Mack for when he retires.

Like the top 2 picks. interested to see how things shake out between Epenesa and Gross-Matos. Who goes first, which if any will be there for our pick, etc.

Agree about not taking 3 DT. Gonna be a lot of depth holes to fill after this roaster gets purged.

throw in Dobbins, Taylor or similar RB as the second round 2 pick and I would be elated with the first 2 rounds!

Yes , I agree we need to draft a RB,, But we need to resign Hill also.. He's very underrated as I've said many times.. And I believe we will resign Hill, When called upon,, he has be very solid and done a great job considering he has not had many chances at all to show what he can really do.

I know it's not common for a team to draft 3 DTs , and to be honest,, I doubt we will, But if I was in charge of our Draft,  I would simply because we would have 3 amazing DTs to keep fresh by letting that third DT to go in and let our top two which ever is best.. They are all 3 Amazing dTs. And I would love to have all three, they could be the additions to put this D# as a top 4 D# in the league.. I have to say,, I love this draft.. When I make one more after the combines,, It's not going to look a lot differant,, But may have A RB added,, And will figure out which one of the 3 DTs I think would be best to keep out of these 3.. And then again, I may leave all three in and just add a RB. But think about it,, Look what it could do for our D# if we had those three Beast DTs ,, Biggest , strongest , and most powerful dTs in this draft for the picks. OUR d# would be like a completely overhauled D. And with the DE with our first pick,, added to these DTs ,, we could have a chance to be the best DL in the league.

Talk about causing turn overs !!!  And turnovers win many many games. And the addition of not just DTs, But DTs that are very explosive,, will open the door for our DEs to sack the QB many times, causing many turnovers.. Yes, I think out of the common Box, and the best teams do.
