I do not believe in the 3-4 either, for that matter, but that is my personal philosophy. Also, this mock is done with the assumption that we sign no one of note in the off-season.
1. CB - Brandon Harris - Miami, FL
Harris is one of my favorite CB prospects. If you see my thread about the top DBs in the 2011 Draft, I've posted some YouTube videos and from what I've seen, he's going to be an absolute stud if he is coached properly.
He can become a ball-hawk but tends to just deflect passes but regardless he is my #2 best CB after Patrick Peterson and ahead of Prince Amukamara.
2. WLB - Travis Lewis - Oklahoma
Lewis is undersized which allows him to fly across the field and make plays. He would be an excellent addition to our roster and he could start as a rookie.
3. C - Jake Kirkpatrick - TCU
One of the better centers in the draft. He is tough as nails and can hold his ground against bigger players.
4. DE - Greg Romeus - Pittsburgh
Not sure how much he falls but he was having one of the best seasons as a DE in the NCAA. Steal if he falls this low.
5. RB - Kendall Hunter - Oklahoma State
He's not big like other smaller backs but he is fast and is not afraid to go between the guards and tackles. Would love to have him on our team.
6. WR - DeAndre Brown - Southern Mississippi
Don't know too much about him but he fills a need for us.
7. K/P - Alex Henry - Nebraska
I've ehard his name but haven't seen him play. If he can punt and kick that's good for us in case our punter goes down or whatever.
I'm going to refer to your paragraph rather than your selection comments. Unless you meant to say we "won't" rather than we "don't" because we have and not too long ago. My opinion is we should have drafted up to select Thomas out of UT for our free safety and would be much better seeing how out #1 Cb worked out.
As low as we will probably be drafting, it should not take a 2nd to move up enough to get Patrick Peterson. If we could get him and keep our #2, I would gladly give a 3rd and 5th & maybe a 4 instead of 5.
