We lost our starting FS, NT, back up NT, back up TE, and K
We added Dorsey (DL), Dahl FS, Dawson K.
I am hoping we can sign Namdi and make a big splash and sign M. Huff out of nowhere (we had no clue we were in the running for peyton)
I would like to see us restructure C. Rodgers contract to give some additional flexibility but i doubt that happens.
Here is my best shot.... we fill needs at DE, FS, DT, WR, RB, slot corner, and help in the return game.
31.) Datone Jones – Although most people have Datone pegged to go a few spots before us, however each year at the end of the first round a few team’s will always move up to over draft a QB, with that said I am hoping with Seattle shoring up there DL via FA and the typical late 1st round shuffling, Datone falls to us at #31
34.) Eric Reid S LSU – Fills the void left my Dashon Goldson
61.) Jesse Williams DT Alabama - might be a little bit out of reach at the end of round 2 but there isn’t a ton of needs for DT after FA.
74.) Da’Rick Rodgers WR – Explosive, height, weight and speed guy, off the field issues cost him millions he will be humble and willing to learn to get his money back in that second contract.
93.) Marcus Lattimore RB South Carolina- Gambling on his knee but with the help of Gore in his corner he could be a work horse for us to combine with LaMichael James in the future. Couldn’t be a better situation for Marcus because he wouldn’t be expected to contribute much his rookie year, giving him the additional time to come back 100%.
128.) **Traded for a 2014 3rd rounder**
131.) Tyran Mathieu CB – Gives us Carlos Rodgers replacement and a true slot cover corner, ran well at the combine and there is buzz he could go even higher then round 4, hopefully some teams will be scared off enough to let him slip to us in the 4th.
157.) TE Levine Toiolo- Familiar with our offense and gives us a red zone threat at 6’8.
164.) Nickel Robey CB USC- excellent return guy, solid feet, good hips and very competitive he could be a 1st day pick if he wasn’t 5’7.
180.) Marquise Goodwin- WR Texas, elite speed and could solidify our return game and could develop into something nice in the passing game in a few years.
227.) Jeff Baca OG UCLA- a lot of experience one of the most consistent linemen UCLA had over the last 4 year's. Has had a few concussions but could be a decent scout team body.
246.) Ray Ray Armstrong FS - 6'3 230 lbs. and can run, hit and cover. Armstrong was a 5 star athlete coming out of high school, off the field issues drop him into a low risk, high reward candidate.
252.) Tyler Bray QB UT – Think Ryan Mallet
