With free agency fairly quiet for the San Diego Chargers, the front office will look to add some playmakers onto the roster through the NFL Draft. There are a number of playmakers that the team can pick up at the corner and wide receiver positions in this draft. Tom Telesco didn’t touch that position much during free agency, but he will likely hit it hard in the draft.

Here is my latest mock draft after the first week of free agency:

Round 1: Jason Verrett
Verrett is one of the best corners in the draft and he could be an option when the Chargers select with the 25th selection. He might be the best corner in the draft, but teams are drooling over the taller corners in the game right now. Verrett should be able to hold his own and would likely take the starting gig from Richard Marshall.

Round 2: Lamarcus Joyner
Joyner is small, but he will pack a punch. His size will make him available this far in the second and he would be a versatile player that can be plugged into the secondary. He has the ability to play at the safety position and could rotate with Addae at the position. He also can play in the slot. His versatility would be huge for the secondary.

Round 3: Bruce Ellington
The Chargers are in the market at improving the position and Ellington is someone who can help the team in the return game and out wide. He would likely end up taking the starting job from Vincent Brown and would add some speed and playmaking ability at the position. Imagine a receiving unit of Ellington, Allen and Royal now. All players that can make something happen after the catch and Ellington has that ability to take it to the house.

  • Sergio Quintero

    2 corners yes, 2 in a row as the top picks, that’s a stretch, Ellington seems more returner than receiver in the short term I would want a more polished can take away Vincent Brown’s job kind of prospect, the rest is more than reasonable.

    Ernie give me a pass rusher, Freeney & Johnson are gone after the season.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      i think Ellington can do well in our offense. The secondary and receivers are stacked in this draft, why wouldn’t we want to add a couple of good players in the secondary onto our roster? It is the biggest need by far on the roster at this point. Right now we have Marshall and Wright. Gilchrist in the slot and everyone else has not proven anything. What Marshall and Gilchrist have proven has not been the greatest either.

      Picking secondary twice in a row when we face Peyton Manning twice per season, why not?

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        If we did that I’d want Verret & McGill but getting 2 doesn’t sound like a bad idea, it’s not like Gilchrist is that wonderful at anything.

      • Sergio Quintero

        If Telesco repeats last year’s strategy, takes say Dee Ford at 25, and trades up to 35-45 and gets CB Fuller/Verrett, I know probably super optimistic. Just a scenario.

        Or the Verrett at 25, and secures Van Noy at around 45-50.

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          I would take Van Noy in the 2nd if i thought he would be there. easily would take him

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          i can see Telesco trying to move back to pick up a few picks, but i think a few teams have that on their minds… imagine 3 2nd round picks… Van Noy, sick wide receiver (Allen Robinson), maybe Fuller for corner. that’s a wrap!

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            2nd round is beastly this year, 3rd pretty sick too wouldn’t mind getting a extra pick somehow someway

          • Julien Bélair

            the problem is that every teams seem to want to move back…. It will be very hard to find a trade partner. Just hope a guy like Beckham or Lee is there and someone want him but I really doubt we will be able to trade down

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            agree. don’t see how we can pull that off with other teams looking to pick up extra talent as well

  • davacho

    NT? or just urban?

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      Lissemore or Bust baby lol

      • Sergio Quintero

        From reading Acee it sure sounds that way.

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          Maybe there’s a famous NT from the CFL that we don’t know about quite yet…..haha or maybe Geathers is figuring it all out and will be come a force this year. Something gotta be brewing that we don’t know right?

          • Nick in PB

            That’s what I’m thinking Mr. Blanks, or they are just hoping! I had high hopes for either one of those guys to produce last year but it didn’t happen. But it is a tough position to play and most don’t get it until year 3 or so. I was hoping F/A would fill that need but maybe they are thinking that the guys they have now are as good as the marginally priced F/A that were available.

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          im going off the acee report

      • I_Bleed_Powder_Blue_801

        Just playing along on this NT thing as well…. Is there any hope Geathers or Jerrideaux will be more than depth/camp fodder??? If SD goes 1/2 @$$?addressing NT they better have a pass rush this year… Pagans is killing me… He’s the new NorF

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      if there was a nose tackle to take, it would have been in the first, but Nix is not guaranteed. Otherwise, it seems bare and I bet they slide to the undrafted status again for the position.

  • Nick Mansoor

    Wow… Verret, Joyner, Ellington and Archer. I would L-O-V-E for this to happen. but its a long shot. But this would be an amazing draft class.

    #Boner

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      Tom did say he wanted to add speed onto this roster.

      • Nick Mansoor

        He was probably talking like Ferrari speed, you just threw a Bugatti at us Ernie lmao

        But I like it

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Man I wish the draft was closer, thinking of having a small draft get together. Seriously this extra 6 weeks to have to wait is Bru-Tal.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      seriously… the wait is FIVE-ever

    • Boltage89

      First they said push back a week and now to may 8 T.T

  • gpack17

    sorry ernie, not a big fan of this mock..if we get verrett i wouldn’t see us getting joyner after with taylor coming back soon too..that would mean we would be getting 2 undersized dbs to add to williams and weddle and addae..ellington and archer are kind of shorter as well and would mean allen would be our tallest receiver as well..moncrief, coleman, bryant are all receivers that may be available in the 3rd round that are better than ellington..archer however probably wont last until round 6 after his 4.2 at the combine..this also doesnt help us at ol, and doesnt give too much help at dl..

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      i understand that everyone hates getting small players at the skill positions, but when does the production outweigh the height? Give me someone that has produced over someone that looks like they can play the position. I wouldn’t mind all those receivers, but will they last that far in the 3rd?

      • Julien Bélair

        just ask Tyran Mathieu

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          thank you… size fight gives me nothing… cool, he is short, but these guys have produced.

          • Julien Bélair

            yeah and he is now 190pounds… not that bad

      • Sergio Quintero

        Telesco seems a major production over skill set, the Anti-Al Davis.

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          absolutely agree with that. takes the production, no matter the build of the player. doesn’t even care how fast they ran their 40 (Teo and Allen)

          • Julien Bélair

            I love that thinking btw… I’m glad we have TT we are building a great team in SD

      • gpack17

        understandable…and im not opposed to getting one of those guys like verrett..but adding joyner at the 2 after already getting a corner would mean we would lose out on upgrading a different position at that slot for a db with no natural position..my point in them being small is the nfl has evolved..you have a tight end like jimmy graham and you have eric weddle and joyner playing safety, then your in trouble..jump balls after jump balls..then if you try to play a corner there and are stuck with wright and verrett that’s not much better..i understand where you are coming from, but in my personal opinion i would throw out a variety of different options instead of good players all of the same mix..

        as far as those receivers go, coleman is projected in the 4th..bryant is a toss up..moncrief as well..out of those 3 alone you will at least find one though..

  • Julien Bélair

    ok I got to say it….. I think there is a very big chance that Verrett is picked before we do.
    Eagles seems a good fit for example

  • Bolt Ness

    I’m sorry but you can guys can hate me all you want,I seriously think verrett won’t be that good ,a role player at best

    Yeah he had an excellent combine but that means nothing to me honestly, it matters how he does in games and some times he’s consistent but others he’s not, he misses tackles too and that’s not what we need, his height is horrible he’s too short,Richard Sherman wasn’t a first round pick, so why go for someone like verrett Odell beckham killed him, think about it imagine what a taller and better receiver against him,I would take roby
    Or Stanley Jean baptiste then draft Aaron Colvin later , but hey that’s my opinion

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      but Odell killed a lot of people. Odell is going to be something special

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        It’s possible the top 4 CB’s are all taken before our pick, The Rams – Cards – Bengals & Eagles could all easily take a CB. Hopefully GB or Pitts takes Nix.

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          was thinking the same… definite possibility.. then what do we do? trade back? take the best receiver?

          • Julien Bélair

            I think we might see a G, WR or a OLB if it happens so be prepare for pretty much everything

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            hahahaha… truth

          • Julien Bélair

            The good part is that I would be happy with so many players that I’m sure the first round pick will be a beast

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            same here I’m open to almost everything but Nix lol

          • Julien Bélair

            he is a very good player but the knee problem is a concern

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            In that scenario I’m with you maybe BPA? It that pushes a couple WR’s our way awesome. What do we do it a talent like Hageman drops to us can we pass on him cause we run a 3-4 partly? That dude is a animal and with the Cowgals picking up Melton yesterday Hageman could fall a bit.

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            i would love him, but the d-coordinator would turn him into a bust. telesco better know his personnel (d.coordinator)

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            same here I love Giant football players, dudes a serious Giant like Fluker

          • Bolt Ness

            I agree dude is a bad ass

          • Bolt Ness

            That would be interesting lol what would you do Ernie if I may ask? I would go receiver

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            probably would take the receiver that is there.

          • Julien Bélair

            Wr before Nix ?

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            really all depends on who is there. give me a list of players available and i will tell you my order

          • Julien Bélair

            well in my mock there is Nix, Cooks and Beckham available

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            well dang…. one player i love is Beckham…. If Tom wants to fix the defense, he has to go Nix. If he wants to make the offense elite, take OBJ.

            Personally, i would go Beckham, Nix, Cooks.

          • Julien Bélair

            that’s the two mentality… an elite offence does sounds pretty good. But without a good defence we can do nothing….

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            i understand that… but look at who is running this D. Telesco likely trusts his coordinator or he wouldn’t have re-signed him and would go Nix. I don’t trust giving him talent to work with.

          • Julien Bélair

            hahaha do you trust NOT giving him talent to work with?

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            i really don’t. He has Freeney and Liuget and Reyes and J.Johnson to start the season with Cam Thomas… You better flip that defense to a 4-3. you have Derek Cox that is much better in press coverage sitting back and watching receivers make plays in front of him all day long. Eric Weddle is the best free safety in the league playing up in the box.

            No trust in Pagano with talent

          • Julien Bélair

            ya,…. did you saw that Weddle played half his snaps in the box? crazy

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            and he was getting murdered on some running plays.

          • Julien Bélair

            how dare you ! Weddle was our best LB :P

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            hahahahahaha.. makes me sad. he can’t pick up 6 interceptions from the spots he was playing at. it would have to be an incredible play… and he did that from time to time still

          • Julien Bélair

            He is so awesome… I hope we let him play his position next year. We need him there. I think one of the reason that Telesco is bringing some depth at LB position to free up Weddle

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            absolutely agree with that. with all the injuries we had at the position last season, it was needed to move another player in the box. hopefully, the new depth will get Weddle roaming around again

          • Julien Bélair

            and then we will be like : wow TT did a great job building depth … he is so a great gm blah blah blah…. haha we will change our mind about this FA pretty quickly once the injury bug hit us… again

    • Julien Bélair

      Odell didn’t killed him first! second just watch tape before you say something like that. The guy have been the #3 Cb in the draft before the combine.

      Many scouts would tell you that if he was 6 foot he would be a top 10 pick

      • Bolt Ness

        He didn’t? You sure about that? Yeah and Aaron Colvin was ranked higher too before he got hurt, so technically verret would have been lower and yeah if he was taller but he’s not, so what was the point in bringing that up? And I hAve watched the tape it shows his good games not all of his bads and I watched tcu games there is plays where he looks lost so say what you want,and as I once stated up top it’s my opinion simple as that

        • Julien Bélair

          there is just too many small players to rate him a second round pick for that only reason

          • Bolt Ness

            You are right on that, like I said I just don’t want him on the chargers but I agree with you up top he might be gone anyways before, say Gilbert Dennard verrett are gone what would you go for? I would say receiver buuuut if dee ford is there tempting but I also look as it like this because I hate the chiefs I would take a wr so there would be one less better receiver that the chiefs won’t get lol jk

          • Julien Bélair

            I would go for Nix (see my mock above)

          • Bolt Ness

            Just saw it , to be honest I think your right on point but here’s a tricky question what if nix is gone also,then what would you pick

          • Julien Bélair

            Then I would go Wr if Beckham is there. If not… then maybe a guard or Dee Ford

          • Julien Bélair

            So Nix, Beckham, G or Ford….

          • Bolt Nes

            I would too I like your thinking bro

          • Julien Bélair

            Thanks ! but it will change a lot until draft day… I do like the idea of getting Beckham and make our O top3 in the league though

          • bolt Ness

            Yeah I would too beckham would make our offense amazing its crazy because that might happen with such a deep draft, I mean, mcgill baptise desir, no particular order but theres a bunch of depth so I can see a beckham or cooks in a chargers jersey :)

    • gpack17

      wouldn’t touch roby, but sjb or colvin would be fine with me..in a division where you have d.thomas, j.thomas, welker, e.sanders all on one team, its not going to help having 2 corners 6’0 and under and 2 safeties under 6 feet when most all tight ends are 6’5 and over..look at eric reid and how he produced as a rookie at safety for the niners..

      • Bolt Ness

        Thank you! You understand me lol I’m going by all the tall ass receivers we have to face

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          check that height on all those receivers and get back to me

          • gpack17

            it doesnt matter..regardless if we get verrett and joyner, do you really feel comfortable with 2 rookies on pro bowler welker and sanders who caught 740 yards and 6tds last year..vs a tall corner that can shadow d thomas, a taller physical safety to matchup with j thomas and puts wright and other cbs on welker and sanders and leaves weddle as over the top free safety help..so all in all..limit yourself and risk rookies on 2 good receivers and weddle and wright on the thomas’ or have weddle free, to help double, and large shadowing rookies on the thomas’ and wright and other corners on welker and sanders….

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            what is our other option? draft 2 taller corners and make them cover the same receivers? no difference to me. rather take the production.

          • Julien Bélair

            two taller guy that will run behind fast receiver …. yeah I want that ! bring back Cason once you’re at it :P

          • gpack17

            if you draft a taller corner like sjb, mcgill, breeland, desir…obviously they wouldnt match up with welker or sanders..im sure mccoy is smarter than that…

          • Julien Bélair

            Mccoy? you mean pagano or TT

          • gpack17

            more so pagano or mccoy..what would tt have to do with who guards who in a game?

          • Julien Bélair

            well first he draft them haha

          • gpack17

            draft deone bucannon and stanley jean baptiste.. you have a taller safety and perhaps the best college football safety last year that can stick to j thomas..take stanley jean baptiste to stick to d thomas..that leaves wright on sanders and steve williams or addae on welker or vice versa with wright..that leaves weddle free to make plays vs peyton..how much different is the production really between verrett and joyner and bucannon and jean-baptiste…especailly if those are 2 guys you could get in rounds 2 and 3 and can use round 1 on a nt, guard, or olb

          • Julien Bélair

            Wright did a good job against D.Thomas imo

          • Bolt Ness

            I agree wright did great

          • Julien Bélair

            maybe he will emerge as our true CB1

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            so you want to put a 3rd round pick rookie on the Broncos best receiver? and you plan on having Weddle, Bucannon and Addae all on the field at the same time?

          • Julien Bélair

            and Taylor and Gilcrhist and bring back Bob Sanders as our NT

          • gpack17

            that obviously is a coaching and decision based on what the broncos would be throwing out there..but most likely would be weddle and bucannon as safeties..wright and the tall rookie corner..with addae or williams or whoever as the nickel…yes i would take a 3rd rounder who can play and stick him on d thomas..its not like since he was a 3rd rounder he sucks..look at keenan allen..what is to say a first round pick is better than a 3rd..its all based off of potential..keenan allen to corderralle patterson..who was the better receiver..would you rather have our best db in weddle free to make plays on the ball and help double receivers, or have him stuck trying to cover a 6’5 tight end and have a 2nd year safety roam free…

          • Bolt Ness

            I’m talking about all height players not broncos

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        welker and sander are both under 6 feet tall as well and a quicker, smaller player would do much better staying with them. if we are playing to beat the Broncos, then the two Thomas’s would be the players to worry about. We aren’t kicking weddle out any time soon and Wright will have to battle with D.Thomas all over again

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      I gotta go Ford or OBJ before the Nix

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        i would want them there also, but wouldn’t be mad at nix

        • Julien Bélair

          me neither but concerned about his knee…. But if we want Teo to take a step and Butler being a beast we need a NT like Nix

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            agree. it would also help the pass rush and would hopefully help Reyes and Liuget. it is a huge position for our defense

          • Julien Bélair

            Yep and Teo played very well with Nix in front of him and he can give a lot of informations to TT about Nix… there is a connection to the Chargers there imo

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            could definitely see it happening if he is there.

          • Julien Bélair

            we passed on Lotulelei …I doubt we pass on Nix if he is there…. the problem is if Verrett and Nix are available …… damn I will be solo freaking nervous on my couch if that happens

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          Is there a Highlight video that can ease me into liking Nix? lol I want to like the guy I just can’t get to it yet

          • Julien Bélair

            do not watch highlights… watch game tape it is better

          • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

            What if I watch both? huh huh =p

          • Julien Bélair

            NO you have to choose you just CAN’T do both !!!!! :P

          • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

            watch his tape against Alabama. just watch how quick he is off the ball against NFL ready talent

      • Julien Bélair

        see my comments below :)

  • gpack17

    honestly if im telesco i offer our 1st and next years 4th to san fran for their 2 2nd rounders towards the end of the 2nd round..that way we have 3 2nd round picks and a 3rd..we can choose from decent corners, guards, tackles, olbs, receivers, and safeties from any of those 4 picks..it would fill more spots from us and give us more flexibility in a deep draft like this one…

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      We would be waiting a day and half before we make a pick but it would be kinda cool, give us crazy options could go McGill – Van Noy – Marcus Martin? Most likely 2 of those 3 would be gone by the time we picked though

      • Marcel West-Bailey

        McGill is not 2nd round talent. At least not in this draft.

        • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

          He’s my personal fav so I shall defend him and say he will go in the 2nd, but hey if we could get him in the 3rd awesome.

          • Marcel West-Bailey

            When I watched him play he just seemed to lack a passion when he played. Granted I only watched 2 games so I understand that isn’t necessarily enough to go one but he doesn’t look like he plays with a determination.

          • Gunnar Martin

            Agree with you Marcel

        • Julien Bélair

          I think he is.. because of his upside

          • Marcel West-Bailey

            Ok. Fair enough. On his potential he could be, but as he stands I think he needs some work. But there’s always SJB if you want a more developed corner.

          • Julien Bélair

            both are very good second rounder with upside. I think the team that will draft them will need to be patient with them but they can develop into two very good player in the NFL

      • gpack17

        that’s at the fans discretion…this is such a deep draft especially in our areas of need that i would much rather make the fans upset by waiting an extra round and filling more spots than use a first and get one spot filled when we have more needs…

  • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

    Titans signed that kick return guy we had in yesterday.

    • Julien Bélair

      ok

      • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

        right big news there lol

        • Julien Bélair

          hahaha I was messing with you….. small news is still news .. especially during this time of the year

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      more love for Dri Archer then.. haha

  • Seando

    We need defensive tackle badly. Badly enough to destroy any possibility of us going back to back corners, even though we need it. First two rounds need to be corner and dt.

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      i would love a nose tackle, but if there is none available we have to go a different direction

  • Cooper

    I know our Defense is a mess, but I believe TT is going to go Offense with the 1st pick. He’ll want to futher inhance the Offense imo. With how bad our D is,it’s not going to get fixed with a 1st round pick. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.

    • Julien Bélair

      you are right. first rd pick on O can make us top 3 offence in the league. first pick on D can make very little difference compare to O

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      here is a point i can jump behind. i have been hoping for us to take an offensive player in the first round, not sure if we will do it though

      • Julien Bélair

        if we would have sign Nicks we sure would have pick a D player…. but TT didn’t get any receiver he wanted… so maybe he will take a Wr in the first round if Beckham for example is there

      • Julien Bélair

        we are an offence team first to say the least

    • CALiFORNiAkiD

      Our defense is not as bad as you’re making it out to be.
      Stop over-exaggerating

  • Eli Rodriguez

    I think it’s so crazy how deep this Draft is. I actually like the 2nd round players better than the first. That’s doesn’t seem normal. I like Roby who fits exactly what TT wants speed the only thing he needs is to become consistent. Fuller could also fall into the 2nd round.Van Noy is just an animal and could be in the 2nd. The 2nd round has crazy players.

    • Julien Bélair

      Roby is not a TT type of guy (character and off field issues)

  • MachoMenos

    So we go small, smaller, smallest and tiny? No.

  • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

    to Chargers fans…. size. matters.

    • gpack17

      my point is that with the draft you never know how players are going to develop..regardless if they’re big or small, taken in the 1st or 3rd..if we get verrett because people view him as a 1st/2nd rounder because he produced in college, does that mean for sure that he will produce in the pros? because guys like pierre desir and stanley jean baptiste produced in college..just because they ran a slower 40 time and are listed as 3rd rounders does that mean they arent as good or will be in the NFL? Because if that is the case then you must also feel that Tavon Austin is a much better receiver than Keenan Allen because he was more productive in college and was worthy of a higher 1st round pick..

      • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

        not saying being small makes you better either. you can ask people that were here last season, i had Allen around the same spot as Austin. I had Austin higher and was one of my favorites and still believe that he would have been a much better player if he was used correctly. just look at andre elllington from last season… small, but productive as heck.

        either way, players shouldn’t be disregarded for their height. if they have produced in college at that size against good competition, then they must be doing something right.

        • gpack17

          but college is soooo much different than the pros..i dont see ellington as being a good nfl player..but i see moncreif as a good nfl player..depends on how players will develop..a guy can be a stud college guy and not do anything in the nfl..and i dont remember seeing what you put last year but ive been checking up on this site for awhile but just recently started posting..

  • BlueBoltFan

    I still would go Dee Ford with the Chargers’ 1st round pick…provided his medical checks out. He can contribute year 1 as a designated pass rusher while learning the ropes at OLB and take over as the starter in 2015. (Imagine him, Freeney, and Ingram going after the QB on 3rd and long.) A good pass rush helps the secondary more than a rookie CB. Even the good ones usually take a year or so to develop. That said, I would take Kyle Fuller or Jason Verrett as my 1b and 1c picks for Rd. 1.

    Rd. 2 CB Pierre Desir. He plays much faster than his timed speed from what I’ve seen. The guy has made his way into the 2nd round playing at a small school, meaning he hasn’t had top quality coaching yet. My alternative (if we draft a CB in round 1) would be OLB Carl Bradford or even trading up for Kyle Van Noy if he drops into round 2. I would also seriously consider Donte Moncrief if he’s still on the board. Guy reminds me of Demaryius Thomas.

    Rd. 3 WR Josh Huff. I liked him a lot playing at Oregon. He’s a beast. He’s fast and physical, can play inside or outside, stretch the field, go up and get jump balls, and run after the catch. Could possibly be as big a 3rd round steal as KA #13. Alternative choice: CB Bashaud Breeland.

  • Parsons 29

    Don’t you think we need a nose tackle? Since our players are Geathers and Jourdeau. I think we take Daquan Jones DT from Penn State round 3 or Possibly Sutton if he falls then take Van Noy 2nd Get a wideout round 4 just a thought

    • bolt Ness

      Daquan jones will not be there in the 3rd sorry to say

  • Raymundo

    That would be a great draft !

  • navw21

    1. NT Louis Nix III
    2. CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste
    3. G Cyril Richardson
    4. WR Josh Huff or WR Shaq Evans (still debating which I’d like more)
    5. DE Taylor Hart
    6. C Bryan Stork
    7. CB Deion Belue
    I think this would be a pretty good draft for us. Anyone have any opinions on the WR’s I like them both but am willing to listen to anyone help tip the scales.
