I don't think you should base picks so much on who you think will be reaches, but base it on who you think is talented and can help the team. BPA is overrated by people outside of the top 10. And even in the top ten it's debatable sometimes. At pick #32 is shouldn't even enter the discussion IMO.
Brooks and Jones are Rookies. I just don't believe they are going to make those type of investment in players and then basically relegate them to back up duty after their rookie year. Even Caldwell got his chance to start

And Brooks has a ton of potential. I believe they see him as a future starter next to Duane Brown.
To be fair, I was on the Watt bandwagon. Irvin... yea, it appears I missed there. Aldon Smith too, I thought he would be no more than a 8-10 sack 3rd down specialist.

So we agree on Brooks. No problem there. But Jones was a 4th rounder. Sure mid and late round picks turn out, but that late in the draft you are not thinking "starter". You are thinking depth player, potential injury starter. I think the future OL (based on the mock) looks like Brown/Cooper/Myers/Brooks/Winters. I feel a lot better with that compared to Brown/Jones/Myers/Brooks/Newton.
