Some super whacky picks here.
The Bucs just spent 60 million on Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams is a very promising WR entering his 3rd year along with Benn who should both benefit from Jackson's addition. No way they take Blackmon.
The Panthers arent switching to a 3-4, and took a few DT's last year, none that are great, but Poe makes little sense to a 4-3 team and really isn't worth a #9 pick at all. Didnt even produce much in college. Only worth the reach to a 3-4 team in desperation for a NT.
Jets have more than a few needs above of CB, they took Kyle Wilson in the 1st round in 2010, and though hes not a world beater yet, they have Cromartie and revis, why in the world do they take a 4th high caliber CB over OLB, DL, OL, or WR? Huge holes they have.
The Broncos too have a lot more needs than to take another TE. They took two last year in the draft, and just gave Tamme good money and signed Dreesen to back him up. 4 TE's. Why not take a 5th, eh? I dont think so.
Mercilus isnt a LB, dont know why you have him listed as such. Maybe in a 3-4 he would be, and maybe he'd transition to SLB for the Giants but I dont see it with Kiwi manning that spot and with 3 awesome DE's on the roster already. Granted, Osi is in his last year, so Mercilus wouldnt shock me, but theyre another team with bigger needs than the pick you stick them with.
Just a quick retort:
Blackmon is the best prospect in the draft after Luck an RG3.
Panthers will almost assuredly address their defense, and Poe dominated the combine with like 44 reps of 225 lbs. When you sling that kind of iron you can play anywhere you want on the line.
The Jets pick of Kirkpatrick was based on him being the best player on the board. I think they could end up wanting to trade down to address their multiple holes, but face with the decision of reaching for a less talented player, they chose BPA and take Kirkpatrick.
Broncos taking Fleener is logical, because he would be the best TE on the roster and would give Peyton a security blanket.
Thanks for your input
