Am I on to something with these picks or am I off the reservation? Feedback encouraged!
1 DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson - Really like what he would bring to this offense. No explanation necessary based on the love of Hopkins on this board.
2 Kawann Short, DT, Purdue **Flynn traded for a swap of 2nd round picks (somewhere in the 33-40 range)** - Again, no explanation really necessary on this board.
3 Sean Porter, OLB, Texas A&M - I love this guy as our WLB of the future. He has the size, athleticism and speed JS and PC seem to covet.
4 Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati - Recent reports that this guy is a headcase could cause him to fall to this point. I'll take my chances with his character concerns at this point in the draft.
5 Michael Buchanan, DE, Illinois - Really like the value here and he would step in and compete from day one at Clem's spot until he's 100% again.
5 Matt Scott, QB, Arizona - The obligatory selection around these parts. I could see us picking him higher, especially if we do trade Flynn.
6 Kerwynn Williams, RB, Utah State - Competition for Leon. I could easily see him taking Leon's job to be honest.
7 Manase Foketi, OT, West Texas A&M - Versatile and could be plugged in at G or OT.
7 Vernon Kearney, CB, Lane College - Good size and speed combo here. He is a little lighter than we're used to but seems like our type of guy. Good depth if nothing else.
7 Rontez Miles, FS, California (PA) - PC and JS prove once again that they are pretty good at this whole draft thing by grabbing Earl's backup in the 7th round. At worst this guy could be a very valuable special teams ace for us.
