1- Jared Crick, DE- Nebraska 6'6, 285
Peter Konz, Kendall Wright, Nick Perry and Melvin Ingram are all off the board. A key to us having such a great defense is the fact that we can rush 4 and drop 7 into coverage and still get pressure, If Smith or McDonald goes down we are in trouble. Regardless, Crick would be a great addition to our D-Line rotation and would allow our starters to stay fresh later on in the game. He is a top 15 talent who falls to us because of an injury. We get a JJ Watt/Justin Smith clone with a pick at the end of round 1. Great value.
2- Bruce Irvin, OLB- West Virginia 6'3, 245
Irvin is a flat out monster rushing off the edge but he is a bit under-sized. Im not sure there is a player who has his speed off the edge though. Much like Aldon was this year, Irvin would be brought in on passing downs to wreak havok.Im not sure how an offense would block Aldon, Willis, Bowman and Irvin/Brooks at LB and Cowboy, Ray Mac and Crick on the D-line. Good luck QB's.
3- Casey Hayward, CB- Vanderbilt 5'11, 188
Good tackler, good coverman but better ball skills. than any CB in the draft IMO. If he was a bit bigger, he would be top 15. But, as it stands, he can flat out play and he would be hard to pass on here if available. You can never have enough pass rushers and corners in today's NFL. Our defense goes to the next level with this draft class.
4- Stephen Hill, WR- Georgia Tech 6'5, 206
Big, fast, good hands and a good blocker. What more could we ask for? He is a flat out playmaker and lead CFB with 29.3 yards per catch.
5- Joseph Fauria, TE- UCLA 6'8, 252
Yes, that is right. This kid is 6'8. Imagine covering this kid in the redzone. He could offer another potential mis-match to a unit that already features Vernon Davis, Delanie Walker, Nate Byham and Justin Peele. Fauria is extremly raw as a pass catcher and has basketball moves, much like Jimmy Graham. He had 481 yards on 39 ctaches with 6 TD's as a junior.
6- DeVier Posey, WR- Ohio State 6'2, 210
Big play receiver who was suspended for 5 games for getting over-paid 728 dollars in a summer job. His junior season he had 848 yards with 7 TD's averaging 16 yards a catch and his soph season he had 828 yards with 8 TD's averaging almost 14 yards per catch. This kid could be a steal.
7- Rokevious Watkins, OG- South Carolina 6'4, 320
Big bodied offensive lineman who would offer depth if he makes the team.
