If I was Rick Smith I would have drafted Montori Hughes (NT Tennessee-Martin) instead of Sam Montgomery and then drafted Ty Powell (OLB Harding) in the 6th. Can't really see Montgomery doing it in coverage, hope I'm wrong.
On a side note I would have liked to see us pick up Keith Pough (ILB Howard) and Jasper Collins (WR Mount Union).
What do you guys think?
Im not worried, our 3rd S, 2nd ILB and 3rd CB got more snaps than our NT position last season. You would be surprised how little we have a true NT on the field. Safety is much more of a concern and it was addressed.
