A big target that will be an immediate boon to our Redzone Offense, allows Crab to bump inside to the slot in three wide situations.
Round 2: Michael Egnew, TE
Starter in the 2 Tight End base set, another big target in the passing game, can play tight to the line of scrimage, split out, or in the backfield.
Round 3: Mike Brewster, C
4 year starter at a big time program (OSU), can apprentice behind Goodwin or play right away if pressed into action. A future 10 year starter as the QB of the OLine.
Round 4: Robert Turbin RB
Player of the year in the WAC, a one man offense for a small school to the tune of 1500 yards and 19 endzone visits. Strong upper body, can come in right away and spell Frank, potential starter in the future depending on development.
Round 5: DeQuan Menzie, CB
Starter at Corner for National Champion Alabama, dropping in draft because of poor 40 time (4.6), good size checking in at 206 lbs, can play safety and special teams. Replacement for Reggie Smith.
Round 6: Devon Wylie, WR
Speed demon, can play the slot on offense providing a deep threat the team largely lacks, also an excellent return man can backup Ginn or replace him if he does not return.
Round 7: Chaz Powell, DB, ST
Developmental player, killed the combine but only played one year on defense after switching from receiver. Potential player who can excel on special teams while learning the nuances of the position.
QB: Alex, Kap, Tolzien
RB: Gore, Hunter, Turbin
WR: Crab, Morgan, Jeffrey, Ginn, Wylie

** 50 man roster leaving room for 3 players, rather FAs, unsigned guys, practice sqaud, preferably on defense as the draft was offensive heavy.
