First a couple of roster moves prior to the draft need to be made.
1) Re-sign Mikell
2) Move Finnegan to the other safety position
To the draft:
1st Pick (16) WR Tavon Austin- I love this kid but his size is a risk.
2nd Pick (22) OLB Alec Ogletree- He has a ton of talent but might be a ticking time bomb, if he's a star in the league all the "I told you so's" will come out of the woodwork.
Kyle Long OL- Has the right DNA and ability but who knows what or how long it will take him to turn into something. The rationale for this pick would be that he could immediately compete for a guard position but realistically would be depth for 2013 with the potential to replace Saffold at RT if he bolts after 2013.
The Honey Badger CB- With a seasoned and experienced safety duo w/Mikell and Finnegan (earlier moves) we could use him next year as our nickel back and we would have a secondary full of playmakers.
Marcus Lattimore RB- Could easily have been a first round pick w/out injuries and could be the heir apparent to #39 in the blue and gold.
Rounds 5-7 best players available.
Who knows how these kids could turn out but rest assured we would have a draft class with the biggest chips on their shoulders to prove they can play in the league w/the big boys
