So here it is.
Day One - First Round
For my money our two most pressing needs are right tackle and a legit home-run hitting return man and I'd love to see both needs filled in the first round. My preferred combo would be Spiller at 13 and Bulaga/Williams at 16. But if Spiller is gone I'd be more than happy with Bulaga/Williams at 13 and Golden Tate at 16. No, taking another Biletnikoff Award Winning WR in the first round wouldn't bug me at all if the guy can return kicks.
Day Two - Second & Third Rounds
The second round is shaping to be the perfect time to get great value for a DB. Like most of the board, Nate Allen or Chad Jones would be my preference and I think we should feel pretty confident that one or the other will be there. But a couple of solid corners should also be available if the safety we need doesn’t slide to 49.
The third round should be a target rich environment for an OG/OT swing man. My preference would be that Mike Johnson from Bama slips to 79 but John Jerry, Kyle Calloway or Roger Saffold should also be available. I think any one of those prospects would be able to push Baas and/or Rachal immediately.
So here’s my dream mock through day two:
1A- C.J. Spiller RB/KR – Clemson
1B- Bryan Bulaga OT - Iowa
2- Nate Allen S - South Florida
3- Mike Johnson OG/OT - Alabama
We’d have a top-flight playmaker, a starting RT, possibly a starting Safety and interior o-line depth.
Day Three – Fourth through Seventh Rounds
So what’s left? CB depth and some pass rush help, or maybe a blocking TE/FB/H-Back type of player.
4- Jermaine Cunningham OLB – Florida (DE Conversion project, very athletic)
5- Brian Jackson CB – Oklahoma (Physical press corner with good size)
6- Jim Dray TE – Stanford (Blocking is his specialty, but he’s more than that)
7a- Rashawn Jackson FB – Virginia
7b- Joe Pawelek ILB – Baylor
