Just kind of messing around with different thoughts and scenarios. This draft is assuming Cpt. Kirk is gone and we get a 3 back for him.
1. Anthony Davis OT - Rutgers
Great strength, size and length with long arms. Excellent footwork with very good quickness and agility for a man his size (6'6" 330lbs). Plays with very good balance while displaying tenacity and power. Keeps his feet moving and is a very good run blocker. Has played on a solid offensive line throughout college and he has been the anchor. Inconsistent technique and questionable work ethic and character. Ran a 5.38 at the combine with 21 reps on the bench
2. Brian Price DT - UCLA
Tied for 2nd in the country with 22.5 TFL - which shows his ability to get into the backfield. Very quick first step and excellent lateral quickness. Plays the run well and can play in a 4-3 or 3-4. Plays too high at times and needs to work on his conditioning - he disappears in the 4th quarter and wears down. Ran a 5.13 at the combine with 34 reps on the bench
3. Pat Angerer MLB - Iowa
Extremely productive in college - 242 tackles in 2 yrs as a starter. Excellent in pass coverage. Solid run stopper. High character with a good work ethic. Questionable speed and explosion.
3. Jevan Snead QB Mississippi
Great arm strength and mobility. Nice size (6'3" 215lbs). Played in a pro-style offense in college. Needs to improve his accuracy and decision making. Inconsistent at times but is still developing.
4. Jordan Shipley WR Texas
Works best out of the slot, great possession receiver, finds holes over the middle and sits in them, very good route runner, change of direction speed after the catch is a plus. Looks balls in before making a move, effective as a return man. Will not run by pro corners, does not have game changing speed, has not really played against the jam, will need to get his upper body stronger to come out of jams at the line of scrimmage.
5. C.J. Wilson DE East Carolina
Good upper body strength to work the tackle, stacks and sheds well in run defense, nice balance and footwork, uses his spin move well, consistent tackler. Needs to improve getting off blocks, problems dealing with double team, lacks elite speed to get around the corner.
6. No Pick
7. Javarris James RB Miami
Strong runner and excellent receiver out of the backfield. Great in pass protection. Good short yardage back - always seems to fall forward for positive yardage. Quick feet, nice vision and shows good patience. Didn't put up impressive #'s in college and always split time with other backs.
7. Alterraun Verner CB UCLA.
Good speed and change of direction, dependable open field tackler, locates the ball well, times his jumps, good anticipation and breaks on the ball well, good one-on-one defender. Lacks some size, trouble with stopping the run, does not have blow away speed.
