I think Render can be had lower in the draft. If we go OG in the third there would be other guys I am interested in.
I think Arenas will end up in the third round because of his return skills. I wouldn't want him playing CB on my team though. He is a nickel CB at best and not even the best one in the draft.
I'm a huge fan of Mathews. I think he is the best RB in the draft. Overall, even though you picked different guys than I would have I wouldn't complain about this draft too much. Addressed all the need positions high in the draft.
I think if Burnett can run in the high 4.4s he will move into the late 1st. Even at 4.50. I think people are questioning his speed a little bit right now and are waiting for him to show exactly how fast he is. He plays pretty fast. The production for Burnett is there, he just needs to put up good numbers at the combine.
I am assuming Earl Thomas is gone by our 1st rounder in this mock.
I think Sergio Render is underrated. He has been really good over the past 2 years. He could push Brisiel and Pitts in TC IMO, so a 3rd rounder isn't too much if you ask me.
Arenas is hard to judge. I don't see him as a starting CB in the NFL so I doubt a team would take him in the 3rd round.

2. Ryan Matthews, RB Fresno State Add a capable RB to complement Slaton and take over the #2 slot from Arian Foster.
I like Mathews alot. He may not last to our second pick.
3. Sergio Render, OG Vtech Improve the guard position.
I really like Render but he wasnt even invited to the combine so you should be able to get him way later in the draft.
4. Vince Oghobaase, DT Duke
This would be a great pick in this spot.
5. Javier Arenas, CB Alabama
At this point its hard to guage Arenas. His stock will become more clear in the next few weeks.
6. Jay Ross, DT East Carolina
His teamate out played him this year. Linval Joseph, East Carolina Height: 6-6. Weight: 322. Maybe we should go after him.
6. C.J. Wilson, DE East Carolina Big strong-side DE that can replace Bulman as a backup role-player.
Why do you want Bullman replaced?
7. Leigh Tiffin, K Alabama or Hunter Lawrence, K Texas If Tiffin is there I take him, if not I take Lawrence and let the rookie battle Kris Brown in camp.
Hate spending picks on kickers. Even 7th rounders. Remember Dyles was a 7th round pick. I would rather use our late picks on big potential prospects and hope to strike gold.
I feel Ross has had better career than Joseph and fits our scheme better as well. Isn't Joseph a junior anyway?
I don't really feel like Bulman is doing anything for us. He really is a below average bench player if you ask me. I'd like to find someone who can replace him, or atleast push him late in this draft if possible.
