2) Love Smallwood. I was loving him as a 4th round sleeper for us last year but he has blown up this year. He really reminds me of David Hawthorne, who I thought was fantastic in Seattle.
3) CB is a huge need. We really need someone who can come in and cover the slot and eventually replace Joseph. Not sure if Dennard is that guy, but he's an upgrade over McCain for sure.
4) Barnett is a solid pick. I think there are higher upside guys at Safety, but it's no secret that this position needs to be addressed.
5) Ealy is very intriguing. He has a ton of upside and I could see him going earlier than this because of that. We do need to address the DL though. Pass rush needs serious help.
6) I mocked Archer in my last mock. We need to find a kick returner who can also contribute on offense. Martin is neither of those. Could also help to add a change of pace back since Tate will be gone. Archer and Venric Mark are two guys I like.
7) No on Thomas. I've never liked him as a prospect. He's not NFL material, IMO.
1) One can dream, right?
2) I can see why you'd think that, but a 7th round pick is not exactly likely to work out anyway. If I could get him UDFA I would, because I think there are some interesting things we could do with his physical abilities.
