Round 1- Eric Ebron TE North Carolina
Assuming Justin Gilbert is gone by the time we pick, if he is available we must draft him. Ebron provides the tall receiver that Ben has been wanting and he makes our offense 10x more dynamic by being able to have him, AB, Cotchery, Wheton, and Bell or Heath on the field at the same time. I don't have any concerns with his blocking as he will mainly be used in the slot or out wide.
Round 2- Kyle Fuller CB Virginia Tech
Corner is arguably are biggest position of need as are secondary was the week point of our team in most games last season. Fuller provides great size, speed, and athleticism as well as great toughness that our defense is built on. Fuller would likely be given a chance to compete for the second starting cornerback spot alongside Cortez Allen, and if he does not solidify that position he will contribute a lot in nickel packages and on special teams.
Round 3 (Compensatory)- Kelcy Quarles DE South Carolina
With the recent news of the likely departure of Al Woods, D-End suddenly has become a large position of need. Quarles posses ideal size and strength for a 5-Tech DE along with impressive pass rushing skills that netted him a sack total of 9.5 in 2013. The only real knock on Quarles is that he played next to Jadeveon Clowney at SC and faced only one blocker on nearly every play. Quarles will contribute from day 1 as a rotational DE and has all the skills to blossom into a productive starter down the road.
Round 4- Daniel McCullers NT Tennessee
McCullers is a massive human at 6'7 352 lbs. His size however causes him to be extremely slow off the ball which allows shorter interior lineman to at times be able to dominate him when run-blocking. Despite this McCullers is impossible to block one on one in pass protection and destroyed every lineman who tried. McCullers is a project when it comes to being an every down NT let alone a 2 down NT but would contribute instantly in a role spelling for McClendon.
Round 4 (Compensatory)- Christian Jones OLB Florida State
Jones was a productive player at FSU playing outside linebacker in 2012 and in the middle last season. He would have to make a transition to OLB in the 3-4 but has good size and great athleticism that would suggest he would be able to make the transition smoothly. He would also could give us depth at ILB if Sean Spence is not ready for the start of the season as well as be a good contributor on special teams.
Round 5- Dri Archer RB Kent State
Electrifying player that can be used creatively as a running back, receiver, and return man.
Round 6- Hakeem Smith S Louisville
Good tackler and very reliable in coverage. He will give us good production on ST and could step in to the current role of Will Allen in the future. Can play either safety position.
Round 7- Taylor Hart DE Oregon
Underrated player that will give us good depth at the DE position.
Round 7 (Compensatory)- Brandon Dixon CB Northwest Missouri State
Small school project player that will have to fight for a roster spot in training camp.
