Round 1: Tajh Boyd, QB Clemson, 6-1 225 lbs
Rick Smith is going to get rid of Matt Schaub at the end of this season, and if you think otherwise you're probably one of the people chanting "Fire Rick Smith" out in the regular section of the board, and are probably unaware of all the things Smith has done to make this team better. I want Brett Hundley and if I'm given the choice between him and Tajh Boyd, I'm beginning to like Hundley more and more though he is far more raw than the other 1st round prospects. However, I think Hundley is gone before we pick, and Boyd will still be there when we do. I like Boyd because he looks like the leader and the QB we need under center. He's got accuracy, ball placement, and he seems tough, much tougher than MS will ever be.
Round 2: Kyle Fuller, CB Virginia Tech, 6-0 190 lbs
You bet CB is a concern with this team. Aside from the starting punch of Kareem Jackson and Jonathan Joseph, there is little behind them in this team and Kyle Fuller would go a long way towrds addressing that.
Round 3: Shayne Skov, ILB Stanford, 6-2 245
Continuing the tradition of badass names on our LB squad, Skov will round out the lack of depth behind Cushing. Joe Mays' play has made this less of a need but I'm not entirely sure Mays is not just a one year plug. I think the injury from last year brings him down to our pick, but he's been looking good so far.
If the Seattle game isn't proof that we need another leader in our ILB corps, and that if Cushing goes out for any period of time we're screwed, I don't know what is.
This is also where I lament about not drafting Kiko Alonso. I was damn high on him last year and look how he's been doing so far.
