Great job AB.
Any OLB/DE pass rushers you like that could be picked in the later rounds, such as Aaron Lynch, Larry Webster, Jackson Jeffcoat, etc.?
All possibilities. Also Powell as a late round pick. I felt ILB was a more pressing need, as Lemonier and Skuta are good backups.
In this mock I figure Aldon will get a long term deal soon, either this season or in 2015, which lowers his salary down a lot, allowing us to retain Dorsey, Skuta and Crabs. We will have to sacrifice Iupati, but in the long run we would have a bunch of young, key vets signed long term. After 2015 we retain Boone and Vernon. I originally thought Vernon and Willis might sign extensions, and still may, but it's not a pressing need to do so. Unless they agree to cut their future base salaries in 2014 and 2015 down, then we have room for carryover.
