Next year we will have Tank Carradine and Marcus Lattimore in camp ...to me it's like having 2 extra 1st round picks , those guys would have been drafted higher if it werent for their injuries, we were able to take a chance on these guys being we already had a stocked roster and basically only a couple holes to fill ...
do you think we will take an injured player with lots of potential with one of our mid round picks? ...we have the luxury of waiting it out , low risk, HUGE payoff

Not sure Lattimore would've been a 1st round pick this year, but the point is well taken.
If Trent Richardson got into the first (top 5) at that, I think Marcus Lattimore would have as well. Especially with the year Eddie Lacy had (2nd round pick who probably would be drafted in the first round if it was redone).
With that said, I would love to get Dominique Easley and Aaron Murray. I picked both in my mock. I'm hoping Easley doesn't go as early as some are calling it (end of the 2nd round/top of the third). Seems like a good spot too because the teams at the end of the 2nd round are the ones most likely to be able to afford to let him sit a year.

Other benefits are that it gives us opportunities to:
A). get a highly rated player which we'd never have a chance of getting because of our record
B). have them sit and LEARN our systems with out pressure for a year
C). take time to completely heal
D). enable us to still take quality picks with our top 2 selections.
Not to mention if that person starts the season on the PUP list, it gives us the opportunity to keep another player on the 53. Our roster has been so stacked that we have had to release some pretty damn good players.
