I mentioned in another post that the website www.NewNFLDraft.com has us taking Cameron Newton at the #7 pick. Another thing that website does is it lays out what our worse case scenario would be during the draft. Not to mention it could be a very real scenario.... That website has the draft going like this...
Carolina- Nick Fairley
Denver- Patrick Peterson
Buffalo Bills- Da'Quan Bowers
Cincinnati Bengals- A.J. Green
Arizona Cardinals- Von Miller
Cleveland Browns- Prince Amukamara (not sure this is a huge need since they drafted Joe Haden last year and their seconday was one of their strengths)
That's the top 3 players overall IMO... Fairley,Bowers and Green plus our top 3 in Peterson, Prince and Miller...
What do we do in the very possible scenario that this happens?? I believe we have to give a serious look at Marcell Dareus DT Alabama 6'3 307lbs. I belive he's one of the only other players worthy of drafting that high. We could always take a look at the QBs in this situaton but I'm not sold on any of them. I know A LOT of ppl. are going to say Robert Quinn here but I honestly don't think we can spend the money on him a #7 draftee would receive. Don't get me wrong he's a hell of an athlete and could turn out to be a great player but right now at #7 he has too many question marks. 1. He has off the field issues and 2. He hasn't played organized football in over a year. I just think when you weight the good vs. the bad right now the bad wins. I think our best bet if we don't take Dareus is to trade back, pick up an extra pick or two and draft Cameron Jordan DE/DT Cal 6'4 287. A little on the light side but he's more of an OLB/Pass Rusher then he is DT. Either him or Jimmy Smith but the depends how far back in the draft we go. What's everyone else's thoughts??
