Hello again everyone. Now that free agency is pretty much done with(Webz DGAF), I think it'd be a nice time to do this all again. Do as many rounds as you wish, and don't forget our compensatory picks in rounds three, six, and seven. Please give your reasoning behind each pick so others can see where you're coming from. Feel free to constructively criticize and pick apart everyone else's drafts, but be nice about it. Here's mine-
Round 1 - Chance Warmack, OG Alabama - One of the best players in the draft lines up perfectly with the largest hole left on this team. No. Fucking. Brainer.
Round 2 - Justin Hunter, WR Tennessee - This position has been a gaping black hole for talent on this team ever since Mason and Bennett left all those years ago. Superhorn's post today gives hope for Britt, and there's always Mr. WR screen himself Kendall Wright, but another very talented receiver who also has the tall guy build to sub in for or take over for Britt if need be would be a huge benefit to our young stable of horses.
Round 3 - D.J. Swearinger, S South Carolina - Hits like freight train, has experience all over the secondary, and tackles well. In a perfect world, he and Markelle Martin learn behind Wilson and Pollard this season and then take over as starters next year; leaving us with two young, big hitting, good tackling and good coverage safeties for years to come.
Round 3(comp) - Tyrann Mathieu, DB LSU - Why the hell not? He's a proven playmaker and could help out on special teams. The only qualms I have with him is his size isn't really what we need. I'd like to get a big bodied guy who can run with the speedy WRs like JMac can but you're not going to get someone with Mathieu's talent level and that build this late.
Round 4 - William Gholston, DE Michigan State - Fits what we need. Good size, good tackler. Lacks burst but can get after the passer. Would do great learning from Millard, and would gain great experience behind the top three in our rotation.
Round 5 - Jamie Collins, OLB Southern Miss - Athletic as all get out. We got Fokou who can back up all three spots, but he'll probably spend most of his time behind Cmac in the middle. Collins is best at getting after the passer, and can even put his hand in the dirt. Not as good against the pass as he is against the run and while rushing, but I don't think he's as bad as Ayers has shown at times. Could be a dynamic tool that Gray and Williams could use in all three LB spots and even at DE at times. Only a little bit of homerism in this pick.
Round 6(comp) - Zac Stacy, RB Vanderbilt - Compact and strong as an ox, he could be the next MJD. Could easily push Harper off this roster, which is a big win in itself.
Round 7 - Jason Weaver, OT Southern Miss - This one is a bit more homeristic than Collins. Started 23 straight games for the Golden Eagles after an injury in 2010. Basically he'd be a depth guy that could push for that second backup OT spot, and hopefully backup a bit inside as well.
Round 7(comp) - Philip Lutzenkirchen, TE Auburn - A great blocker with good hands, he could be used much in the same way we plan on using Walker. He could even move to being an almost full time FB.
And there it is. Now it's your turn, have at it!
