in the 2nd and 3rd round I'd like to walk away with a pass rusher, a LB or a play maker on offense.

If we could get two of these needs accomplished I'd be happy.

I think we'll get a pass rusher, safety, and RB/TE/WR with our three picks today.

If the Objective is to help the defense you do that one of two ways. Add players to the defense, or strengthen a running game to keep the defense fresh.

Lattimore effectively does that. Now he and PJ Williams will likely battle for the #2 spot and Ramzyck will be the 6th olineman in our Power Running Sets.

Now our most glaring issue on defense last year was the 3rd down defense. A sub package passrusher would be ideal here. Possibly a Tim Williams helps that or a Jordan Willis or a Tyus Bowser. So still some options. Then you have maybe a Joe Mixon which again adds to the running game which indirectly helps the defense.

So I'm looking for them to close out that way. In theory all 4 picks would help defense.


IMHO, Tyus Bowser still gives you some coverage ability and could still fill a LB hole and double as a Passrusher hole. So you miss out on Reuben but you nab a SAM LB still in kind of a Von Miller Mold. So its a 2 birds one stone kind of thing.

Bowser + Mixon would be ideal for me...and I'd take Mixon at 42 and then come back into the 3rd and get Bowser or vice versa.

Speed at DE and OLB with all three picks. I have been screaming for this since 2010 playoff loss to Seahawks.

I was thinking they'd take Willis and Mixon. Thinking if those guys are there they will be the picks. After Watching Willis he reminds me of Kikaha a lot, maybe it's just the Jersey :hihi:.

Like your picks a lot EJW. Personally, I am drawn to Curtis Samuel and Jordan "Bruce the Assasin" Willis. And then somehow if we could get Peterman, call it a great draft.

I'm in the consensus that there were two ways to handle the QB position this year. Pick one Early or Pick one late... Draft is too deep on defense in the middle rounds to take one in the middle when the chances of a defender who can contribute being there.

I'd waste a 6th or 7th on Chad Kelley (is that his name from ole miss) unless peterman falls that far but year.

I'm joking, but not really....
I'd pick DE with the rest of my picks and hope one of them is the monster we've been needing for 10 years now..

No to Curtis Samuel! watch his highlights, he catches with his body NOT his hands.

They're going all-in on ceilings, so I wouldn't be surprised if a trade-up came about. Sidney Jones is the ultimate risk-taker move, but I don't know if they can afford to redshirt someone, on top of the development time CBs need, nor do I think they're necessarily targeting CB next. A safety or edge rusher should be the next priority... MAYBE LB if they're high on Zach Cunningham, but I could also see Raekwon McMillan being the pick later on.
