We are in a great position with many top end defensive talent left on the board. For the next two picks I think you have to play a best value game and think about what best two combination of players you can get. For example I think Jamar Taylor might be the best CB left, however with all the talent still there at CB I think it might be better to hold off on them for now. We should look to get a position where there might not be as much value in the third. For example I don't see any of the DT getting out of the 2nd round. It would be nice to try and trade back and try and pick up an extra 3rd if we really think our player will be there as well. I'll throw out my big board specifically for the birds taking into account the value I feel will still be there in the third.
2nd round big board:
Now who might be there in the third:
So my two reasonable scenarios' I would like to see:
1st: stay put
35: Johnathan Hankins
67: Darius Slay
My 2nd scenario is to trade 35 and 101 to Miami for 42 and 77. Miami could be looking secure OT in this case if they can't work out a deal for Albert.
42: Still might be able to get Johnathan Hankins or another one of the DT's
67: Darius Slay
77: Might be able to grab a Phillip Thomas, Jamie Collins,
I like D.J. Swearinger a lot as well and he seems to be getting pushed up the pundit's boards so I would add his name as well.
Does Jesse Williams or Kawann Short fall to us in the third? If so I would say grab Jonathan Cyprien, but of course we can't know that. How much would you be willing to gamble? I still think there would be a nice CB in the 4th if you wanted to go this way (maybe even Jordan Poyer as he seems to be falling down boards). If the next 3 picks played out Jonathan Cyprien, Jesse Williams, Jordan Poyer I don't think anyone could complain.
What are your thoughts? Where is the value at each pick and does it make sense for this team?
