Evaluation of our Draft picks

I guess you could say we had a slighlty controversial draft. But now that the draft is over, I want to go through and evaluate each pick.

Robert Quinn- All of us seem to agree, this was a great pick. How often do you get a guy that you never thought would last to your pick? I expect that he will start of as the main key to the pass rushing rotation, and probably Spags will use his athleticism to find interesting ways to get him on the field. Expect him become a starter pretty fast. Comparison- Demarcus Ware

Lance Kendricks- I understand we passed on a lot of guys to get this guy, but I like this pick. Yes, we have Uh-Oh, but he is a guy who gets YAC, Kendricks makes the 15 yard catch up the seam. Him and Uh-Oh will make for a good replica set of Gronkowski and Hernandez. Kendricks is the Hernandez style TE for that tandem. Comparison- Jermichael Finley 

Austin Pettis- My favorite pick from this draft. He got overshadowed by Titus in college, but I think he will turn out to be better in the pros. He will be perfect for Sam to throw to when the play breaks down and Sam rolls out. I will predict it now, he will become our #1 WR in a year or two. Comparison- Michael Irvin (probably not as prolific, but same style of WR).

Greg Salas- He and Amendola our going to be the slot recievers. Let's all admit, Amendola isn't helpful in the redzone because he can't break tackles or go over his defender. Salas does both of these things and that is his biggest value. Comparison- Hines WardWes Welker

Jermale Hines- Expect him to bulk up and become an OLB.

Mikail Baker- a return specialist, only problem is Herzlich is still on the board.

Jabara Williams- athletic LB from D2, again though, Herzlich is still on the board.

Jonathan Nelson- good safety from OU, expect him to contribute big on Special Teams, maybe a situational guy
