The Senior Bowl has come and gone, and many players have seen their stock rise, while other players now will have a lot to prove during the NFL Combine this month.A With a few veterans aging at important positions and Ted Thompson's annual decision not to pursue any "filler" free agents, the NFL Draft will be the most important two days of the ...
Okay, I'll take this one on. First Brandon Graham won't last to 23. Javier Arenas is not a "lockdown" corner at this level, though he has a very good skill set. He's actually slower and shorter than a number people that will be available in round 2, where Jerome Murphy or Perish Cox will likely be around. They would be better picks. Capers stock is dropping like a stone (3). Trent Williams would be a better rd 1 pick when Graham has been selected. Or Taylor Mays (S). A rd 3 OT would be someone underrated like Roger Saffold of Indiana. Asante is a good pick, though he may not make it deep into rd4 if at all. If we wait this long, I'd sit tight and take Kyle McCarthy from ND (late 5 or 6). He's a great tackler and can cover too. LaGarrette Blount I have discussed (character issues). I really think he'll goi earlier. He's definitely day one talent. As for late rounds, beside McCarthy, CB Kevin of USC is rising and CB Brian Jackson of OK is a good choice. Newhouse? I'd go for Mike Tepper from CA or "the other" Joe Thomas from Pitt or Gregg Peat fro OreSt. Also keep eyes out for big DEs like Clifton Geathers or EJ Wilson. It is too long away!!
