    I didn't base it on player ranking because it's obvious some guys might not be there when we pick. I did base it on team need and availability of the player when we pick. I've done this a few times and usually get 3-4 out of the group that we actually pick.

    Have to say I'm really high on TJ Barnes from Ga. Tech.

    1. T.J. Barnes DT Ga. Tech

    2. Brennan William ROT North Carolina

    3. Marquise Goodwin WR Texas

    4. Kevin Minter ILB LSU

    5. Dion Jordan OLB Oregon

    6. Jonathan Cooper OG North Carolina

    7. Gavin Escobar TE San Diego St.

    8. Tyrann Mathieu CB LSU

    9. Matt Scott QB Nevada

    10. Terron Armstead ROT Arkansas Pine-Bluff

    11. Montori Hughes DT Tennessee-Martin

    12. Tavon Austin WR West Virginia

    13. Manti Te'o ILB ND

    14. Alex Okafor OLB Texas

    15. Larry Warford OG Kentucky

    16. Zach Ertz TE Stanford

    17. Desmond Trufant CB Washington

    18. Ryan Nassib QB Syracuse

    19. Semisi Tokolahi DT Washington

    20. Dallas Thomas ROT Tennessee

    21. Stedman Bailey WR West Virginia

    22. Arthur Brown ILB Kansas State

    23. Jamie Collins OLB Southern Miss

    24. Travis Frederick OG Wisconsin

    25. Zach Sudfeld TE Nevada

    26. Jamar Taylor CB Boise St.

    27. EJ Manuel QB Florida St.

    28. Brandon Williams DT Missouri Southern

    29. Reid Fragel ROT Ohio St.

    30. Ryan Swope WR Texas A&M

    31. Nico Johnson ILB Alabama

    32. Damonte Moore OLB Texas A&M

    33. Justin Pugh OG Syracuse

    34. Jake Stoneburner TE Ohio St.

    35. Jonathan Banks CB Mississippi St.

    36. Emmet Cleary ROT Boston College

    37. Gilbert Pena DT Ole Miss

    38. Keenan Allen WR California

    39. Uona Kaveinga ILB BYU

    40. Cornelius Washington OLB Georgia

    41. Kyle Long OG Oregon

    42. Ryan Otten TE San Jose St.

    43. Darius Slay Mississippi St.

    44. Kenny Vaccaro SS Texas

    45. Matt Elam SS Florida

    46. Shawn Williams SS Georgia

    I really want to have a man crush on Barnes, but everytime I put his tape on, I have second thought.

    Sixth round on, sure, I'll take him.

    Yeh if we are going that route I would rather go with Kwame’s Geathers. He stands out more than Jenkins who is rated way higher. I think Geathers will be the better pro.

    Geathers seems to be the safer pick, but Jenkins, man, if that guy can control his weigh like Brandon Brooks, he could be an impact player. For that uncertainty, I would rather not draft him before the third round.

    Now if I have the resources that the Texans do such that I can find out about the weigh thingy, I can upgrade him easily.

    I just see more athleticism on Barnes. 76, what about his tape don't you like?

    Inconsistency, he played "small" quite often.

    I think his height (6'6) worked against him some time.
    He needs to learn to play with better leverage, otherwise smaller guy can clear him out with better leverage and technique.

    The question is whether he can bend.
    Probably need to watch some more tape to see if he has the ability to do that or he's just a waist bender.
