    True enough. There are a lot of corners with potential to be good complementary players in our secondary. I'd be very happy with Alexander, however, because I think he's a true #1 corner, and those other players are not. Pairing him with Gilmore would give us great flexibility and talent.

    We would take Payne at 23 if he was there. I just took both of em because
    hindsight is 20/20 when you see who was picked after you. Both would prob
    start by the end of the year.

    I think both would be mainstays of the defense moving forward. Payne would be a great compliment to Shelton and whilst they’re not like for like players, would have an Akiem Hicks like effect on the defense.

    I’ve been mocking for immediate need and still see that happening but Just getting good players in is my preference. Alexander and Payne are two of the best prospects possibly available where we’re picking although I doubt either would slip to 31.

    I still have a fantasy of getting Reid and Alexander and having the most athletic secondary in the NFL.

    Evans/LVE

    Alexander/Hughes

    Reid/Carter

    Think that would be a pretty good first three picks!

    Pretty good. I’d be concerned about Jackson. I’m excited by Carter’s potential but I don’t think he’s a slam dunk to be a successful starter. Hall is interesting but again, is a bit of a projection. I like Andrews but wonder how much playing time he’d get unless he becomes a good blocker. It’s interesting and exciting but there is some bust potential to it. The Evans pick is spot on though.

    As this league evolves into a 7 on 7 passing drill, DB is or will be the most import
    position. Good qb's just get rid of the ball too quick to count on pressure to defeat them.
    That's realistic and I wouldn't complain.

    What are your thoughts on TE's? I love Gesicki as a receiver. Not sure he could
    block me. I'm 56.

    I can see us passing on edge and OT. Don't like the prospects likely to be
    available when we pick.

    Honestly, I still feel Evans can help us more than either of the db's.

    Thursday - Saturday is Christmas for most fans interested in the draft. UDFA Sunday is Boxing Day for the hardcore draftniks in this forum who spend the time doing the scouting and putting together reports for folks like me! :)

    Give me Harold Landry instead of Jackson and that would be an awsome draft.

    Reid seems like a safe bet to pitt at 28 so If we want him it may be at 23 or a trade up from 31. Harrison could be an option if Reid’s gone.

    Mike Mayok’s mock

    23. Kolton Miller
    31 James Daniels

    Now that’s an interesting one. As has been pointed out on twitter, we were ready to take Dan Feeney last year so maybe not a complete stretch.

    Im not sure Mayock knows/cares that Pats got Croston last yr and Thuney, Karras the year before, extended Andrews..

    I could possibly understand one OL pick in 1st - G+T or G+C . but two #1 OL picks in this class borders on senility..
