I'm giving DAndre the benefit of the doubt. I feel really good about him. I like players who get in, go to work, & let their play speak for them. I don't have problem with a guy who runs off at the mouth & backs it up, but Dj Swag's play has a little catching up to do. I saw flashes. Just need to see more.

I like Brandon Brooks, I think he can be a solid starter. I'm not seeing pro-bowl or All-pro caliber, but maybe it's there. I also like Ben Jones. I think he plays well enough & would be a solid starter if he had the opportunity to play more.

I think Crick is about the same on the other side of the ball. He'll be a good solid starter.

I like Chris Clemons, or at least what I've read. I like him enough not to panic about FS. I like Tarpinian (I also like Mohamed)

That's a nice football team. Not championship caliber or anything like that, but if they get better QB play than what we had last season, that team can win in 2014.

If we can get just 3 starters out of this draft (I know, asking a lot) then that's a very good roster. Add a franchise QB & I can see play offs year after year after year.
