1) Brandon Williams NT Southern Methodist Missouri
A Big Run Stopper who would do better in a 3-4 defense rather than a 4-3 pushes lineman off the line and gets penetration easy through the middle has no off the field troubles like other young talented prospects in the draft and is a force to mess up the passing game.
2nd: Arthur Brown, ILB, Kansas State
People on this board are calling this guy the next Ray Lewis. I won't go nearly that far, but the kid has a tremendous work ethic and is apparently studying film nonstop. He is a little undersized to be a 3-4 ILB but lately undersized players like Daryl Washington, Lawrence Timmons, and Navarro Bowman have given their defenses a dynamic presence in the middle. With a great blitzing backer like Jonathon Bostic next to him, Brown can do what he does best: diagnose plays and drop back into coverage. He could put on a little weight to stop the run, but his technique is impeccable and I see him being a successful starter from day one and for quite some time after.
2nd (comp): Bacarri Rambo, FS, Georgia
Character concerns and a strong overall class at his position will cause Rambo to fall. This guy is a playmaker and always around the ball. He can be a little aggressive at times but hopefully we can coach him to make calculated risks. I hope we can bring Ed Reed back next year but I think that is a 50/50 chance at this point. Whether #20 is back or not, a long term replacement is desperately needed and we have almost no depth behind him. It would be great to see Rambo mentored by the best of all time, but if Reed hangs them up I can see Rambo being a solid player, who despite some growing pains, will contribute right away.
3rd) Jonathon Bostic | ILB | Florida
- We need depth at ILB. I am not worried about finding a starter as I think we will use each of our LBs to specific packages. Bostic is a very well rounded player who did a lot better this year. I like him as a pass defender and think he could play a situational role for a couple of years before making a bigger contribution. In the run game he does a great job of engaging blocks and does not shy away from the physicality as he is always working to the LOS. But he can get washed by linemen and at this point it looks as if he is still just trying to get to his gap and holding put, he needs to diagnose and read plays more effectively to make big plays as the RB seems to run by him a lot as it looks like he is just trying to get into his correct position. Love his potential and progress this year though, seems to be on the upswing.
3 comp) Robert Lester is Probably my Favorite Strong Safety in The Draft. He Has The Ball Hawk Skills Like Ed Reed At FS He Is Outstanding On and Off The Field, Has Speed Of 4'5 Forty Makes Dynamic Plays Always Knows Where The Ball is And Can Compete with Bernard Pollard for the starting job since Pollard Hits Up To High and Is Steady Being Fined
4th) Dion Sims, Is One Of The Best Tight Ends In This Year's Draft at 6'5 285 and is an Excellent Blocker and has Been Learning To Catch Passes and Hasn't Dropped any Passes This Pick in the Fourth Round would be a steal and He Is Like Another Lineman But can catch and Block for Leach and Rice He Can Wear Our Number 85 Jersey Like He Did At Michigan State
4th)Comp) William Gholston is an aggresive Defensive End that showed his love for the game aganist michigan at 6'6 278 he has the quickness and he is elusive when is going after the ball you can't forget that strength he posses to be able to penetrate the offensive line.
5th)Travis Frederick Is Quick for a man his size and has quick footwork to be able to play in the nfl and we could bring him in to compete with Gino Gradkowski and a bonus we need the Depth On Both The O-line and D-line
I Also Had Help From Some People With Their Posts
