Who would you take?




So while i rarely take anything that Matt Miller of Bleacher Report says seriously (this time is no different), his latest 2 round mock draft is laughable. While Dee Ford looked great at the Senior Bowl, he isn't the kind of DE that Jerry Reese covets in the 1st round. He's 6'2'' 245lbs, where in we love DE's with length and athleticism, Ford only has the Athleticism working for him. I think if we were to go DE in the 1st, Ealy would be a much better option. And a 2nd round RB, 2 years after using a 1st round pick on Wilson dosen't seem right to me, i think we would rather shore up more important position early in the draft and sign a vet FA and draft a late round RB rather than spend a high pick on Hyde.

As most of you know, I'm a huge Ebron fan at 12. His size, speed, and athleticism have undeniable mis-match potential, especially in McAdoo's West Coast Offense, where he will almost certainly use the TE as a receiver instead of a blocker.

What i'm most curious about is the 2nd round. If the first 42 picks played out something like this and at #43 we have the options of Marquise Lee, David Yankey, Kelvin Benjamin, Jordan Matthews, DeVante Adams, Xavier Su'a Filo, Stephon Tuitt, Will Sutton, Dominique Easly, Tiny Richardson, Jack Mewhort, Marcus Roberson, and Pierre Desir, Who do you Pick?

As much as one of the guards like Yankey and Su'a Filo would be smart, i can't help but get giddy thinking about the combination of Ebron and Kelvin Benjamin. The size that we'd be adding to our offense would be great for our redzone woes. Benjamin and Randle on the outside, with Ebron and Cruz in the slot is a nightmare for opposing defenses. I think Lee is too much like Cruz to make a big impact in our offense, but Benjamin's size and speed at 43 plus Ebron at 12 opens up a whole new world for our offense .

Thoughts?
