My sig has changed 3 or 4 times at this point... But, 3 weeks out, here's what I'd do (not necessarily what the team will do).
1. Jarvis Jones, OLB, UGA
Why: OLB is one of the bigger team needs. At a minimum, Worilds needs competition. I've warmed up to idea that a mid-rounder makes more sense, it's difficult to pas son (statistically) one of the best football players in all of the NCAA last year. Easy decision to take a consensus top 5 player (before measurables). The team lucks into Jones - let's hope he's a stud.
2. Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU
Why: With the questions surrounding Sean Spence, ILB is also a big need. Foote underperformed and Minter was the best player on a very good LSU defense. "First to react on tape", is what the experts say most - much like Spence.
3. Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall
Why: The team is fortunate his hammy made him clock 4.5 at the combine, he has clocked 4.33 in the past. Hard working, good kid will be a a long-time starter. Steal at this place in the draft. I want this kid on the team!!!
4. Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
Why: I know, I know, he's hurt - a SECOND time. But, before that injury, he was arguably the top back in his draft. High character kid who speaks to youth groups at churches. I'm OK with waiting a year to get THAT player. Before you discount it, would you give a 4th rounder to have had McGahee's career? (I know he went earlier in his draft, but, you get my point).
5. Montori Hughes, NT, Tenn-Martin
Why: Casey may have seen his last days in BnG. Not many of us is sold on McClendon... Here's another guy to battle it out.
6. Omoregie Uzzi, OG, Georgia Tech
Why: Hard hitter, with athleticism to pull and/or get to the 2nd level. Will need to gain a few lbs, but, was a competitor on a bad Ga Tech team. Good value at this point in the draft.
7. Joseph Fauria, TE, UCLA
Why: He's 6'7" with great hands, and presents a mismatch for most defenders. He needs to work on his blocking, but, could immediately fill in as a short-yardage/red-zone target. If you recognize the name, he's Christian's nephew
There ya have it. Here's an interesting tidbit...
Most confident pick: Aaron Dobson
Least confident pick: Jarvis Jones
