    Which players would you actually be willing to draft in Round 1?

    For me, I only have 6 (in order of preference & not including Luck & RG3)....

    1. QB - Ryan Tannehill - Texas A&M
    2. CB - Morris Claiborne - LSU
    3. WR - Justin Blackmon - Oklahoma State
    4. DT - Fletcher Cox - Mississippi State
    5. DT - Michael Brockers - LSU
    6. WR - Stephen Hill - Georgia Tech

    Whole 1st Round. From 1-32. But lets be realistic...Kalil and Richardson are not going to be available at 15 much less 32. Im gonna actually my number to 6 because we all know those 2 (Luck & RG3) are not attainable.

    ANother words...guys you would trade up for (within reason), guys you would take at 15 and guys you would take in a trade down in Round 1 only.

    Justin Blackmon
    Michael Floyd
    Fletcher Cox

    No Kuechly? How can a list not have a sure fire first rounder at a big need position? One of our least productive positions on the entire team was linebacker. Ryans is a great start but he's the only rock solid starter and he is coming off an injury. Luke has prototypical size, good speed, strength, instincts, and he's versatile. A major upgrade who would solidy our LB core and have an impact Day 1. Luke Kuechly belongs on this list and makes it very easily.

    stankfinger - Brockers could easily drop to the end of the 1st. The guy is raw and a better fit as a 2-gap DE. He doesn't really have the explosiveness to excel as a pass-rusher. Guys like that drop.

    Trade back if someone pulls a hayward-bey and lets a top player fall

    In the late 1st jenkins,wright and hill are great picks.
