It always comes down to who is on the board. Impossible to say at this point. The team will probably sit on the pick, and wait to see who falls in their lap.
I think these players I really like will be off the board when the team picks, but if they are available, to me, it is a no-brainer:
1) Peter Konz- I think he is one of the best players in this draft, and immediately starts at center or right guard.
2) Stephen Hill- While he is super green, anyone that tall, quick, explosive, and seemingly a hard worker, is going to have a great shot at being a high-impact player.
3) Janoris Jenkins- To me, he is right there with Claiborne as the best cover corner in the draft. If this kid can put it all together, he has Pro-Bowl skills
4) Cordy Glenn- I like Glenn better than any lineman not named Konz, Kalil or DeCastro.
There are many more other guys I think highly about that I assume will be long gone by the time the team picks. Here are some high second round players I see outperforming many people's expectations: Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Thompson. I could see the team selecting these guys.
I will be on the Webzone when the team picks, and break down my best available board in advance.
I also like Hill. You are right, with that pick there are so many players that can be available. So hard to pick in the late first round and be right. Top 10 is so much easier to gauge.
