2. Our 6th and a 7th rounder to an unknown team for their 5th rounder.
1st Round: Marcel Dareus DT
I see Dareus as someone who would average about 7 sacks a year and 15 TFL's. Those are solid numbers.
2nd Round: Marvin Austin DT
Austin reminds me of Dareus. Austin's lack of collegiate production concerns me. However, he is a top 20 talent.
2nd Round: Mason Foster SLB
Foster can step right in and play SLB on day one. Love the attitude and passion. Plays faster in games.
2nd Round: Marcus Cannon OT
Cannon, in my mind, is one of the most underrated OL in the draft. Will become a crowd favorite. People see that he is 350 lbs and they assume he is Andre Smith fat. However, he is a powerlifter and carries his weight really well. I think he could fit in our ZB system because he is super athletic and quick with his feet. Honestly, I haven't figured it out but I noticed we are looking at OL that are hybrid guard and right tackle prospects. I'm not sure if we are planning on moving them to guard or right tackle. If I had to guess, I would assume we are looking for a right tackle. Cannon has tons of collegiate experience at right tackle. I feel he has Pro Bowl potential at guard and very solid starter potential at right tackle. I feel he would help a ton with our running game. Even though I would want Ryan Harris to stay, I don't see it happening. Cannon would likely start at RT from day one.
3rd Round: Casey Matthews MLB
I watched over 90% of Casey's games as a Duck and I think he is a fourth round talent. However, I think it is entirely reasonable to overdraft him a bit because of his genes. After all, maybe he could get on his brother's work out plan (hint hint).
5th Round: Julius Thomas TE - Project player.
7th Round: Ryan Winterswyk DE - Much needed depth at DE.
1. Tim Hightower RB
2. Marcus Thomas DT
3. Justin Bannan DT
4. Matt Prater K
5. Mike Karney FB
QB: Tim Tebow
RB: Knowshon Moreno
FB: Mike Karney
TE: Richard Quinn
LB: Mason Foster (S) Casey Matthews (M) D.J. Williams (W)
S: Brian Dawkins, Darcel Mcbath
- Yes, I am aware of the fact that I have four rookie starters on defense. Our defense was the worst in the NFL and this year could be painful.
- I really want to aim higher with free agency but I have no clue who we are looking at and how much we are prepared to spend.
