Titans trade 1.11 + 6.186

Jets trade 1.18, 3.80, 5.154

1.18 - Kyle Fuller DB Virginia Tech

- The Jets sensing an offer to move up from the 49ers, panic into moving up to 11 to beat San Francisco to the punch. The end up taking Brandin Cooks, the receiver from Oregon State. Fuller is one of the better prepared defensive backs in the draft (as usual with most Hokie defensive backs). He straight up dominated the ACC competition, showing his tackling mettle against the vaunted Georgia Tech option offense. Made another good secondary teammate in Antone Exum nearly irrelevant in 2013. A bit undersized but possesses good ball skills and press coverage skills. He would slot in as a nickel corner to begin his career. Can also play safety if needed.

2.42 - Kony Ealy DE Missouri

- The "other" man on that Tigers defensive line. Ealy might not possess the athleticism of Michael Sam but is a good athlete in his own right. He played both end and outside linebacker with great success. He has a big frame in today's NFL (6'3 270). Possesses a good burst off the snap and agility to change directions to stop the run quickly. Still learning the finer nuances of the pass rush game but with Horton, that should improve.

3.80 - Aaron Murray QB Georgia

- Ken Whisenhunt gets his QB to start his regime with. Yes we've heard about all the things about Murray being undersized so I won't rehash those here. Murray was a highly productive QB in the toughest conference in America and comes from a pro-style background. He has some wheels as well and can make something out of nothing if need be. The timing of the ACL tear wasn't ideal (did it almost at the same time Mettenberger tore his) but he did participate in his Pro Day in April so that's a good sign. Of all the second tier QBs, he's the most polished in terms of footwork and poise. Murray succeeded despite being hamstrung by a constantly injured offensive line and inept offensive coordinator in Mike Bobo.

4.112 - Max Bullough ILB Michigan State

- Bullough was the captain of a tough Spartans defense and was a tackling machine. He fits a classic big body inside linebacker that can play off of Wesley Woodyard's smaller run and chase backer. The one thing I did not like about him was the suspension for the 2014 Rose Bowl against Stanford for a violation of team rules. Perhaps Woodyard's veteran presence can set him on the straight and narrow path.

5.151 - Storm Johnson RB UCF

- He's a bigger back and the cog behind the Golden Knights offensive attack. Not the best athlete but has the vision and instincts to make up for it. He pounds the ball inside the tackles and won't go down easily.

5.154 - James Hurst OT UNC

- Hurst came onto the scene during week 1 of the college season against Jadaveon Clowney (effectively shut him down). Unfortunately he has a medical history (broken leg in the bowl game) but managed to come back to participate in his Pro Day. Holds the team record for starts on the offensive line at 49. He plays with a relentless mean streak.

7.228 - Devin Street WR Pittsburgh

- Street is a good athlete with good instincts and is willing to fight for the ball anywhere on the field. He's not the quickest guy but could play the big body possession role while our other big receiver, Justin Hunter is the burner. A WR corps featuring Hunter, Wright, Washington, and Street would become the most dangerous in the league in terms of diversity of talents and roles.
