KJ Wright - Bobby Wagner - Malcolm Smith/Leroy Hill, sounds like a solid set of linebackers to me. I think if you give Malcolm Smith consistent time as a starter next season, he will turn out to be a pretty decent OLB. If he doesn't, then Leroy Hill is always consistent, even at 30 years old. I know Leroy is turning 31 this September and he probably doesn't have more than a couple seasons left in the tank. But I just don't think LB is a position of that much need. At least not worth using a 4 round or higher pick on it, when we need help on D-line, O-line and WR.
1st round - Defensive End (or DT, depending on talent available)..
2nd round - Wide Receiver (a fast WR with size, who can catch anything)..
3rd round - Offensive Guard (a versatile Guard that can play right and left)..
4th round - Defensive Tackle (or DE, depending on 1st round selection)..
5th round - Offensive Tackle (RT, or LT that can play on the right)..
6th round - Quarterback (unless a decent Linebacker is available)..
7th round - Outside Linebacker (or project QB if LB was picked in RD 6)..
7th Compensation Pick - Wide Receiver or Tight-End..
I know we have more picks than that, but i'm too lazy to go and find what rounds they're in. I think one is in the 4th and another the 5th or something. Other than that, I know we get two 7th round picks. Our very last pick in the 7th round is just a shot in the dark. There is no talent available, so I would simply grab a receiver with the best 40 yard dash and vertical jump numbers. Maybe there is a project quarterback left that we can snag and let sit behind Russell Wilson. I think having the same backup QB through out RW's career would help. They would learn together and hopefully that backup would absorb some of Wilson's talent, become a good QB and not disappoint us in the future if we were to call on him to relieve a sore/beat-up Russell Wilson..
Anyway, what does your mock look like? No specific names, just positions you would draft in order of priority.
I apologize for thread jacking. It just seems like this is the direction the thread was heading. Team needs.
