1. Sharrif Floyd, 6-3, 303, DT, University of Florida-
He's really fast and physical. He can overpower O-lineman, or use his quickness to beat them. He's a very good all around lineman who can rotate in with Justin Smith and Ray Mcdonald and eventually replace Smith..
Trade up to the middle of the second round using our second round pick and our second pick in the third round
2a. Jordan Poyer, 6-0, 190, CB, Oregon State-
An extremely quick and physical cornerback that can cover the guys that have given us fits (Cruz, Amendola, Welker, even though Rogers played him well last Sunday). He can also be another guy that we throw into the punt returner competition because Ginn will be gone (hopefully)..
Trade up to the back end of the second round again using our third round pick from Carolina and our own fifth round pick
2b. Matt Elam, 5-10, 202, S, University of Florida-
He is another very fast and athletic defender who can cover receivers down field as well as lay the wood. In my opinion, he can play either safety position in this defense, which is a bonus if we rotate him in with either Goldson or Whitner..
3. Brandon Jenkins, 6-3, 260, OLB, Florida State-
We can afford to take a chance on a guy who missed the entire 2012 season. He had 8 sacks in 2011 and 13.5 in 2010. Definitely can be a good rotational guy to have, as our pass rush has looked gassed at times, especially in the NE game.. Plus he wore number 49 ;)
Trade the Colts fifth round pick, the Dolphins sixth round pick, and a pick in next year's draft (maybe a 5th) for a pick in the top half of round 4
4a. Marcus Davis, 6-4, 232, WR, Virginia Tech-
Another Davis. A big, fast receiver who is a bit raw. Can sit the bench for a year or two and become a downfield threat that Randy was for us this year. Hopefully we can get Moss for one more year so he can learn from the best..
4b. Mario Benavides, 6-4, 300, C, Louisville-
He is a very good pass blocker as well as a run blocker. When playing North Carolina, he shut down Sylvester Williams. Can compete for the center job from day one with Kilgore, Looney, and Goodwin..
