Heavily weighted to BPA, but not totally ignoring need. I've added a 2nd choice for each pick, as there is always a chance certain players shoot up the board earlier than pre-draft projections. I'm becoming more and more convinced we shouldn't reach for a QB in this draft as the class is just not that good. Better to get an NFL contributor at another position...............................
1st Primary Peterson-CB-LSU Secondary Miller-OLB-Texas A&M
2 Best BPA's Wonderlic not so relevant for cover corner in my mind, but if it's a concern, Miller would add to make our LB group one of the best if TD comes back, or is insurance if he doesn't.
3rd Primary Jarvis Jenkins-DT-Clemson Lawrence Guy-DT-Arizona State
Either one would be an upgrade at DT for us.
3rd (Comp) Primary Ricki Stanzi-QB-Iowa Secondary Marcus Gilbert-OT-Florida
Stanzi may be gone here, but a good get if he's here. Gilbert is a solid OT who could play guard if Otah comes back strong
4th Primary Marcus Gilbert-OT-Florida Secondary Jalil Brown-CB-Colorado
See above on Gilbert, Brown is a underrated cover corner.
5th Primary Virgil Green-TE-Nevada Secondary John Moffitt-OG-Wisconsin
Green is moving up boards right now and could be the Rivera TE of the future. Moffit can play either guard and backup at center as well.
6th Primary Terrell McClain-DT-USF Secondary Julius Thomas-TE-Portland State
McClain is great value here at DT. Thomas is a big TE who can be developed.
7th Primary Andrew Jackson-OG-Fresno St. Secondary-Tori Gurley-WR-South Carolina
Jackson is a typical Fresno OL (a la Logan Mankins). Tough with a mean streak. Gurly is worth a shot here. Good hands and decent size.
In summary, if we get the primaries, we have upgraded our defense with 2 DT's and a cover corner. Peterson should contribute right away vs. a rookie QB (tried that last year). We improve our offense by picking up a future TE and 2 OL backups. If we get Stanzi, great. If not, then we get Bulger or Volek, or trade for Palmer or Kolb. All better in my opinion than the QB's in this draft.
