1- 14- 14- Keenan Allen - WR - California

We had the choice of either Keenan Allen or Cordarelle Patterson here. I just think that Cordarelle Patterson is too big of a boom or bust prospect, and opted for Keenan Allen. Star Lotulelei, Shariff Floyd, Luke Joeckel, Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson were all already taken at this point. I would have given Chance Warmack significant consideration, but he was taken already as well. People were very surprised I didn't go Sheldon Richardson here.

2- 12- 44- Sylvester Williams- DT - North Carolina

Defensive Tackle is a need and Sylvester Williams provides very good value here in the second round. Matt Elam was still available which was very tempting. However I opted to go for the more important, in my opinion, position.

If we went in to the 4th round, I would have probably drafted a safety like DJ Swearinger. I want to thank everyone who helped me prepare for this draft, let me know how you think I did in the comments below.
