I'm only going to do rounds 1-4.
Round 1: DE, Everette Brown. Florida State. Junior
6-4 254. Can play weakside defensive end for us in the 4-3. Some people don't think he can play defensive end in the 4-3 in the NFL even though the guy has played nothing but defensive end in the 4-3 in college and has never played any form of linebacker. He is bigger than Mathis of the Colts with similar speed and quickness. Great moves as a pass rusher. Stats for career are 100 tackles, 46.5 TFL, 23 sacks.
Orakpo won't be here, so I agree with this one. A worthy selection.
Round 2: S, Michael Hamlin. Clemson. Senior
6-3 205. Haven't heard alot about this guy on this board and I really don't read alot of scouting articles, but I really, really like him. Had 102 tackles this year with 6 INTs. He has 308 tackles and 14 interceptions on his career. Everyone wants a ballhawk, and this guy is always around the ball.
I've been on the Kam Chancellor (SS, Virginia Tech) bandwagon all year long. I ain't gettin off now. I absolutely want him as our second round choice. If he isn't there...Patrick Chung, SS, Oregon.
Round 3: RB, James Davis, Clemson. Senior
5-11 210. Not exactly the goal line or short yardage back we need, but a good player to spell Slaton, because we also need another everydown type of back. Imagine if Slaton got hurt. His NFL stock really has been hurt by Clemson's lack of conventional offense, much like Slaton. He is also a good receiver out of the backfield, although his numbers don't show it too much because C.J. Spiller was Clemson's 3rd down back. 753 attempts 3,881 yards and 47 touchdowns on his career.
Not a fan of either Clemson RB to be honest. Doesn't mean they aren't good, but there are other RB's I would take here instead.
Round 4: OG, Sergio Render. Virginia Tech. Junior
6-3 307. I'm not sure if Render is more of a 3rd round guy. He may not even be a 4th round guy. As I said earlier I don't read alot of scouting stuff. I just really like the way he plays. Everytime I watch him he plays extremely well.
Not a bad choice if he somehow falls here.
I realize that all these guys are from the ACC, and it is mostly because those are the games that I watch. I based this entire wish list off what I have seen this season, and in seasons prior. I based nothing from what I have read.
Stick to what you know. Nothin wrong with that. You know the ACC better than anyone else on this board.
I'd like us to spend the rest of the draft on BPA on defense, preferably no corners.
DL and LBs. Maybe some more OL depth.
