***UPDATE*** Circumstances being what they are, I am forced to redo my draft. All right, the trade first.
Chip Kelly at Philly isn't happy relying on his two starters at QB, Michael Vick and Nick Foles. Herpes and Wayne's World.
So we give him our first-rounder (29) in exchange for his second (third pick, #35) and fourth (fourth pick, #101). Sweet Moses, that's pretty good. Kelly really wants EJ Manuel or Matt Barkley. Who really cares. We take the deal in a heart beat.
So here goes:
Second Round--from Eagles--Pick 3, (35). Jamar Taylor
, CB, Boise State. Perfect fit for our defense. He'll be our best corner since...well, he'll look a lot like Raymond Clayborne.
Second Round, Pick 27, (59). Margus Hunt
, DE, SMU. Teams weren't willing to go for him earlier because of his lack of experience at a school like SMU. He bats down balls. He's tall. And we like guys named Hunt on the D-line. Scheme-wise he's versatile and smart. Didn't he fight Rocky in Russia?
Third Round, Pick 29, (91). Aaron Dobson
, WR, Marshall. His Pro Day showed excellent 4.4 speed, which is what we draft high for WRs. And he's tall. Ain't that the school Troy Brown and Randy Moss played at? Big and fast. Make Brady excited for training camp. We've got to feed the beast. He was kind enough with his contract. A tall speed merchant on the outside--even if corners can stay with him, can they out-jump him?
Fourth Round--from Eagles--Pick 4, (101). Josh Boyce
, WR, TCU. Look at his numbers: 40 in 4.34, 3-cone in 6.68. He's decent size, too, at 5' 11", 206 pounds. Josh Boyce, WR, TCU, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
Seventh Round (226). Brandon Magee
, OLB, Arizona State. Undersized, injury plagued, under the radar player who is a model citizen in the locker room. Is football a priority. Brandon Magee Scouting Report: NFL Outlook for Arizona State OLB | Bleacher Report
Seventh Round (235). I love Micah Hyde
, the CB/S from Iowa. He's just a football player who makes plays, even chasing down 4.4/40 RBs who play for Northwestern. If his forty were faster, he'd be a lot higher. Look to him to make an immediate impact on special teams.
Free Agent: Chris McDonald, the experienced Michigan State OG, who is the brother of Nick, who plays backup for us.
