1a. CJ Spiller RB Clemson
Spiller may very well be gone by the time we pick. If he falls though, I don't see us passing on him. He will add speed and versatility to our offense.
Other options: Trent Williams OT, Joe Haden CB
1b. Brandon Graham DE/OLB Michigan
Getting a pass rusher isn't first on our list of needs, but with two first rounders, I can see us picking up a play-maker like Graham. With this pick I would like for us to trade down a few spots to get another 2nd rounder, but can't see any possible(or realistic) trade scenarios.
Other options: Dan Williams NT, Mike Iupati OG
2. Rodger Saffold OT/G Indiana
He is rising up draft boards right now, but I think he will eventually end up in this area come draft day. He is versatile enough to play tackle or guard at the next level, something we value.
Other options: Nate Allen S, Dexter McCluster WR/RB
3. Reshad Jones S Georgia
I would love for us to get Morgan Burnett with this pick, but I think he will climb up draft boards once he works out. That being said, I think Jones can be our eventual replacement for Michael Lewis.
Other options: Jon Asamoah OG, Andre Roberts WR
4. Marshall Newhouse OG TCU
For this pick, it came down to Newhouse and Shawn Lauvao. In the end, I went with Newhosue because of his versatility. He can sit for a year or two before he competes for a starting spot.
Other options: Antonio Brown WR, Austen Lane DE, Shawn Lauvao OG
5. David Gettis WR Baylor
Gettis is one of my favorite WR prospects in this years draft. He is big, fast, and physical. He will need some time to develop, but I think he is someone who can do well in this league eventually.
Other options: Myron Lewis S, Joe McKnight RB
6. Brandon Deaderick DT Alabama
May not last this far, but he's another raw talent on the defensive line.
Other options: George Selvie OLB, Micah Johnson LB
7. LeRoy Vann RS
My favorite return man coming out of this draft. I know I went with Spiller earlier, but I think Spiller should handle only kick-offs, and Vann can handle punts. In fact, I'd prefer Vann to do both.
UDFA: Jamar Wall CB Texas Tech - He is just a guy I like. He will probably not be more than a special teams guy. Like Keith Lewis, this guy can make a hit.
