1. WR-Kelvin Benjamin-FSU 6'5 240 4.61
Some like him, some dont. Eagles had him in for a visit, so I gotta think there is quite a bit of interest in him. Will only have to play about 40-50% of the time in his rookie year. Gotta have ins. against Maclin either getting hurt again, not being as good or leaving after 2014. If Maclin comes back strong and gets a new contract, we'll be set at WR for the foreseeable future. This dude has elite potential.
2. OLB-Dion Jordan
Trade w/ 2015 2nd rd. pick. My favorite player from last years draft. Chip needs to find a way. 3rd down pass rusher in 2014. Takes over starting job from T.Cole in 2015. Possibly sooner. Elite potential. B.Graham gets sent packing. If we have to trade our #1 this year for Dion, Id pick WR Donte Moncrief or WR Cody Latimer in rd. 2.
3. ILB-Jordan Tripp-Montana 6'3 234 4.67
Ryans replacement. Gotta get more athletic. Montana HC used to be WR coach for Chip at Oregon. 3rd down ILB as a rookie. Starter in 2015. Being compared to Kiko Alonzo. Will be a steal if we can get him in rd. 3.
4. CB-Dontae Johnson-NC St. 6'2 200 4.45
Can also play S but I think he has some serious potential at CB. S/T guy in 2014 unless there are major injuries but could challenge to start in 2015 when Cary will surely be cut. Could wind up a major steal.
5. WR-Jalen Saunders-Oklahoma 5'9 165 4.44
Speedy. Is excellent PR guy. Tough little SOB. 5th or 6th WR in 2015. Could move up to #4 by 2015. Chip wants med-big WRs, its pretty obvious imo but he would be wise imo to add at least 1 jitterbug like this guy to the mix.
The way I look at it, its gonna be hard to find instant starters given our roster but this would be a damn good haul imo. Sets up an elite Offense and a young/fast/long D capable of causing tons of turnovers. Front 7 would be basically set and the secondary close to it.
In 2015, we could go CB in rd. 1, add another OG in rd. 3 & another TE in say rd. 4. but we'll be in good shape for 2014. With pretty good depth to boot. With a draft like this though, I could see us competing with just about anyone..this year!
