If Dan Williams or Earl Thomas fell to us, I'd be thrilled. Dan Williams will be a solid pro who can stay on the field on passing downs and against 3 wide sets..
Chad Jones is a great talent. He could play FS or SS (if we ever want to move Troy). He has great ball skills and size. He is an aggressive tackler, runs well, and has good instincts.
Franks was often avoided by Big 12 offenses this season. He could develop into a solid NFL starter and can play both zone and man well.
Gallette is a dynamic speed rusher. He has great athleticism. He'd be a project at OLB, but he could immediately help as a nickel pass rusher, giving Woodley and Harrison much needed rest.
Andre Dixon runs well between the tackles. He has a good lean, great vision, and is very tough. He'll need to bulk up a bit to survive in the NFL, but he already plays like a much heavier back. He'll be able to rotate in and contribute immediately.
David Reed is my favorite player in this draft. He is a very slippery and strong runner. He has amazing body control and fights for every ball. He is not particularly fast, but he has nice size and enough quickness and intelligence to get open. I would love to see Hines take this kid under his wing. They are similar types of players.
Ryan Perilloux has NFL starter talent and size. He was kicked off LSU for missing meetings and a poor attitude. All indications are that he has matured. If continues to improve his attitude and decision-making, he could be a great pick.
Lissamore is a penetrating DT who also shows some promising natural strength. He is an effort player who would challenge Sonny Harris and others for a roster spot. I like his pass rushing skills and great effort.
Vincent Rey is an interesting talent. He runs well, has good ball skills, and is stout at the point of attack. After workouts, I expect him to move up draft boards. I watched him play once this season. On one play, he dropped into zone coverage, made a nice break and a very athletic play to snatch the ball and come up with the pick.
