Default My 3 round mock...

This is based on keeping Barwin and Quin.

1. Justin Hunter-WR, I know he's skinny and I don't think he runs the full route tree, but I also think that an NFL level strength and conditioning program will add some bulk to him and if there's any of the route tree that he doesn't know he can learn all summer. I'm hoping AJ would take him under his wing and teach him how to be a pro. He's got great measurables, speed, and great athleticism that I'm willing to take a risk on his minor teachable deficiencies. Sometimes you've got to take some risk and swing for the fences. Hunter could be a homerun in a couple years.

2. Brandon Williams-NT, another somewhat risky pick due to the level of competition that he's faced and although it might take a year for him to finally become the NT we want, he's worth the risk in the short term since he'll be rotating at NT with Mitchell. Also everything I've read about this guys motivation/motor is positive. He'll be our new Shaun Cody on run downs, where I think he's actually better than Cody, and then Mitchell will come in on passing downs.

3. Kiko Alonso-ILB, great height/weight combo for the position and very good speed as well. A sideline to sideline ILB to play next to Cushing with good athleticism for pass coverage. Even if we move Reed to ILB, Alonso offers enough size, speed, and athleticism to be quality depth at both ILB and OLB. This may also free us from having to draft another OLB for depth.

3b. Alvin Bailey-OG, great size and long arms for the position and great speed for such a big man. High quality depth at OG behind Wade Smith and his eventual replacement in 2014.

The rest of the way, I'd like to find a tall FS or CB to convert to Safety that can cover the new era tall athletic TE's that kill us over the middle, a Punter, a TE, and a bunch of BPA.
