I'd favor a draft of
2) Jamie Collins OLB
3b) bpa at OL or DB or even another WR or TE
Don't you find it a little curious he wasn't ranked that high before the senior bowl? He had years to impress in real games yet most thought of him as a late second at best. He is a quick twitch athlete. Guys like him always look sitter than they really are in senior bowl type situations. He has the frame to get bigger for sure but I'm not using our first round pick this year on A player that isn't going to make an immediate impact. We're to close and have to many holes to fill to do that again.
He reminds me of Mitchell. We already have him.
And Antonio had probably his best year last year. He easily was our second best player on defense.
