Smith would be my pick unless someone really good falls. I think Jenkins would be great, but we may be at our limit of punk CB's.
I guarantee Jenkins falls to the top of round 4, unless Oakland takes him with their comp #3. Way too many character issues..

OK, after doing a little more research, I am backtracking on Harrison Smith. Seems he is really shooting up the boards since his pro day. He might not even be there at our 2nd pick. I'm predicting a run at the WR position this year in the first round after seeing how much it costs to get a good free agent WR these days. So, right now, these are the players I would be OK with at 2 that I think have a chance of being there.
1. Alshon Jeffrey WR (think Hill will go in the first)
2. Harrison Smith SS (just fills such a big need)
3. Josh Robinson CB (Boykin will probably be here too, but I think he is too slight in build for a cover 2 cb)
Other thoughts, LB's always fall. What if someone like Zach Brown is sitting there??? Tough one.
I think the big advantage of Smith is that you have to play the draft and each position correctly. There are very few good safeties in the draft and we have huge need, which bumps him up a bit.
We have now signed a couple of decent veteran CBs so that can probably wait until round 4 or so with us going developmental WR in round 3, ideally a guy like Streeter that has some size and speed.
There seems to be some Trumaine Johnson steam in the 2nd round. The talking heads seem to really like him. Combine numbers were not so good for a CB but for some reason I'm starting to feel that we'll take him in the 2nd.
I hope they seriously look at Lavonte David or Zach Brown, Henderson is only on a 1 year deal and its not like we're set at middle linebacker either. Both would be good value at the top of round 2.
FIRE CHILDRESS NOW!!!
Brown kinda reminds me of a more talented Raonall Smith. I think Brown is going to be really good or really bad.
David is one of my favorite players in the draft.
David may well be the BPA but he is limited to being a weakside LB.....isn't that what Greenway just got a lot of money to do?
If I was going to move someone to the MLB spot, it would be Erin. He hasthe size and speed to play there and if they added another OLB, they'd be pretty athletic. It would be nice to have 3the guys that could stay with a TE for at least a little while.
