Rd 1. Eric Fisher OT CMU
With Reiff on the roster Solidifies the book ends of the O-line for years to come and allows them to develop a young line together. Although in the perfect world I would trade down with a team that is Quarterback hunger and pick up Warmack. Already having Suh + Fairley on the D-line I can’t see how a DE is justified. They are the cornerstones so we should build around them with complementary guys
Rd 2. Matt Elam S Florida
If Xavier Rhodes dropped into the 2nd rd. I’d grab him, I just feel a team will take a grab on him in the 1st. Need to start building on the secondary. Depending on what happens in free agency impacts this pick.
Rd 3. Brian Schwenke C Cal
Start building this O-line. Giving him the chance to have one year to develop in the system before then assuming the starting position. (Although if already seen as an upgrade to start as a rookie)
Rd 4.Comp Pick Devin Taylor DE South Carolina
Would prefer Brandon Jenkins if he fell to the 4th round. Require a DE and both would be good value. With the Bookends of the D-line at DT it would allow holes for these guys. If Avril leaves then try to obtain Freeney to have an experienced leader on the line.
Rd 5. Tryan Mathieu CB LSU
I realise the last thing we need is a guy with character issues, but! We need a game changer and someone who can make plays in the secondary. As long as his head space is right at interviews and he buys into the system it could be a good fit. Kevin Reddick LB is the option in this pick if we decided to stay clear of issues, weapon of an athlete and would allow to let Levy go.
Rd 6. Hugh Thornton OG Illinios
Add depth and competition for the Oline, give a year to develop. Would grab kenjan Barner if he dropped to the 6th as he would be the perfect speed back we require.
Rd 7. Quin Sharp P Oklahoma State
Need to give our D some good field position. Special teams has been neglected for far too long. Develop our own punter that is an instant upgrade.
