KIPER says Raji at #12

Below is Mel Kiper's 1st round Mock Draft.  He has us taking Raji and Maualuga falling to #20 to Detroit.  I feel Raji is the right guy to facilitate our transition to the 3-4.  He is big - 6'1" 323, physical and a plugger.  Chung would be my guy in the second round. 

Needs: NT, DE (at least 1), S (at least 1) - could use a corner and or another LB like L.English.  We should also look at a C and a RB (Brown or Green).

Our D Next Year Theoretically (3-4 fits, quesiton marks are trouble spots)

OLB - Doom, Woodyard (maybe take L.English in the 3rd), work Boss in there?

ILB - Larsen, DJ Williams,

NT - Raji

DEs - ?  Thomas maybe, Clemons, ?

S - Chung and ? - I still have questions about Josh Barrett

C - Champ / Jack or Josh
