    Apparently, the decision has already been made.

    Thats a BS article....no **** they like dennard, but he very well might not be there. It also talks about him like hes a day one starter....no CB is going to be a day one starter

If they were bent on WR, they would roll with Lee. But, I don't think they are bent on WR in the first. In fact, I think they know it won't be WR in the first, unless Evans or Watkins miraculously fall. I'm not even sure I can convince myself of Ebron considering the Steelers like TEs that can block. So, I must stand pat and say it's likely Dennard, Gilbert or Mosley...with Barr as a remote possibility as well.
    I would be happy with those guys, for sure... and I know a Bama fan who thinks Mosely is an amazing talent, better than any recent LB they've had, a great leader and actually underappreciated on that Alabama defense... So, I'm all in on that selection...

    you would have those guys cheap for 3-4 years
    That's one way of looking at it. I don't care to groom guys during their first contract, then let them go right as they are hitting their peak. It's a gamble either way you look at it.

    Barr should be a slam dunk pick if hes there. He has the explosion, ability to bend, length, and speed that jarvis doesnt. Jarvis can set the edge and be a terror in pursuit, but will never be able to explode like a Von Miller or aldon smith like Barr would be

    I was thinking if Evans and both Corners are gone (Gilbert and Dennard) then I wouldn't mind Mosely. The problem I see with picking Mosely is we will have 3 1st rounders in our starting linebacking corp. Salary wise I think that will come back and bite us in the arse.

    I don't like him at 1.15, but if Dennard, Gilbert and Evans are off the board it wouldn't shock me.

    Personally, I see Benjamin as a late first rounder.

    I have zero interest in Mosley at 15. The rule of thumb is that an ILB has to be very special to pick before the bottom third of the first. I think Mosley is a very good ILB, but not special like keuchley.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    Reading scouting reports on Mosley make him out to be an amazing talent.

    It would baffle me. It goes against two grains of logic...first the always draft BPA in the first...and second they would be ignoring the fact that they can get an equal talent in the second...shoot I would much rather have Devonte Adams.
