Overall good plan.
However, I wouldn't resign Leonard Davis. We have 14 draft picks to address his roster spot. I don't think it's wise to release David Akers, but we should draft Dustin Hopkins in the 5th or 6th. I'd let Jonathan Goodwin play out the remainder of his contract as well, but I'd understand if we released him. I do think Kilgore is ready. Plus there are guys we can pick up in the 4th - 7th who can play OG and C. Totally agree with the extensions. I'm ok with a 3rd for Alex, but I think we can get a 2nd. Your FA plan is a very good one. But that would be too much for Sammie Lee Hill. Plus if we got him I doubt JH & Co. will have him playing anything outside the 3 technique, probably more 0, 2i, and 1 technique. I'm not sure that the Giants will let Hixon go though. Would love to have Josh as a back-up.
We have 14 picks in the upcoming draft. I know we probably are gonna make some deals but I doubt as many as you think. I haven't released my mock yet (though I'm tempted). I wanna get a good look at the combines first amd make comparisons with my list of porential draftees. But I strongly
believe our 1st two picks will be along the D-line - an hair apparent to Justin Smith (who I think has two years left) and a real interior 0 technique NT, respectively. But unless we trade up Alex Okafor will be out of our reach. He won't last past pick 25. And I suspect that if we move up in the 1st it'll be for someone like Sheldon Richardson or Sharrif Floyd.
I feel you on Logan Ryan, but I like David Amerson better. I think we'll get a 2nd for Alex. And with one of our 2nd picks I have us taking the bigger, more physical, Amerson. With offenses neutralize Aldon by getting the ball out fast we need bigger more physical corners to beat up these WR at the LOS to give Aldon a split second longer to get home. Besides, I think Ryan will go in the 1st 2 or three picks in the 2nd, well out of our reach unles we trade up.
Cannot agree with D.J. Swearinger and Travis Frederick. To me, Bacarri Rambo is THE
guy we need to get with our first pick of the 3rd. He is the real deal, a mirror image of Dashon Goldson (and could play SS). Rambo is far better than Swearinger. In fact, I'm kind of hoping he don't do well at the combine. His stock fell a little after the senior bowl, but I'm noticing he's beginning to rise a little. So I'm hoping he has an average to below average showing at the combine to keep him in our reach. If his stock rises to 2nd round projections I'd say that he'd be worth the reach (especially if we don't re-sign Goldson) and we can still get a big physical CB in the 3rd (Blidi Wreh-Wilson or Tharold Simon. And David Amerson very much could still fall to us in the 3rd too). And we do not need to take a G/C here. Plus, Frederick WILL NOT
play C in the NFL. Besides, we have a bigger hole at OT depth than OG depth. We can address this in later rounds. I'd look for a big physical WR here. I definitely understand the DE pick.
You must like South Carolina or something
. Ace Sanders would be a horrible
. 5-8, 176? I don't think so.
!!! Too small and light in the ass.
Kwame Geathers would be an intriguing pick here. In fact he was one of the players I thought long and hard about picking here. He'd definitely be available here. But I see us addressing his spot with one of our 1st two picks, so I think a OT here is best. But I don't disagree with the pick.
Michael Williams isn't a bad pick, but if we don't re-sign Walker I think we draft an H-back TE here with a similar skill set and versatility as Walker. Besides, we have a guy on our roster with Michael Williams exact skill set - Garrett Celek. Besides, at 269 pounds Michael Williams will be way too much of a project. He'll need to shed about 15 pounds. That's not an easy thing to do, especially given what we know about JH's rookie camps. I have another TE in mind here.
Cannot argue with a K in the 6th.
I like a RB in the 7th, but I'm not sure we need a replacement for Brandon Jacobs. I never thought we needed him in the first place. But I do have us taking a RB with one of our 7th's. And I'm sure we can get Latavius Murray of the FA street. I doubt he'll be drafted.
Like I said, overall good plan.
