Re: Draft wrap-up 2013

I give us a C+.

Three picks in the secondary should result in at least one starter. Effort was made to fix our greatest weakness. Good stuff.

Really liked the Reed-Thompson picks. If just one of those pans out, then we have either our own Hernandez or our own Sproles. Good stuff.

Jenkins I really didn't get. I don't see any playing time for him other than as a situational pass rusher at best or special teams.

I don't see what Jamison brings to the table that we don't already have in Alfmo.

With Morris and Griffin getting most of them. I will never doubt Shanny taking RB. We had no backup RB last year, this means Helu and Royster need to step up. We signed FA OL this offseason and drafted 3 OL last year, i am happy with the draft. We drafted secondary which was needed, a TE which was a need to IMO with Davis on one year deal and Paul with horrible hands.

Also keep in mind we just signed OT Xavier Nixon out of Florida as an UDFA. Nixon graded out as a 4th round prospect for Scouts Inc.

My only real worry with the current offensive line is what we would do if Trent went down. Virtually every position has a solid starter and depth. However in regards to LT I feel like we have no real backups. Hopefully Compton develops this offseason and/or Nixon shows potential.
Just about every teams only answer to an injury at LT is to shift their quality RT over and put in the scrub at RT. we don't have that luxury. In fact who is the swing tackle on the team right now?

Re: Draft wrap-up 2013

I graded it as a B.. I think we got 2 starters and 2 more 2013 contributors from the draft. Amerson and Thomas likely will be starting by October if not sooner. While neither is the perfect product, they can't be any worse than what we trotted out there last fall. Reed and Thompson bring a dynamic element to the offense that it lacked last season. We needed speed and big play ability and we got it in those two. Kyle can throw so many packages at a defense it will have their heads spinning.

The rest of the picks are good, let them develop and play on teams. Rambo is intriguing, if Jenkins gets onto the field in any sub packages it's a bonus.

Perhaps the best part of the draft for me was us going into the draft not needing a 'difference maker' to build around. In '10 we NEEDED Trent. In '11 we needed a compliment to Rak. In '12 we had to get a QB. This year we were able to let the draft come to us a little bit and not reach for people. Especially in this middle heavy draft, I think we did pretty good.

Oh and for that #1 pick we traded away, I still think RG3 will be better than anyone else drafted Thursday night, regardless of position. We still won that trade!

Re: Draft wrap-up 2013

i don't doubt shanny's rbs, i just doubt that we needed to draft 2.

i gave it a c grade, acceptable.

factor in the 1st round to rams for griff, bump that up to b grade.

Re: Draft wrap-up 2013

I gave it a B. Lots of great skill position picks, but I'd like too have seen at least one or two linemen.

Not to pick on you, but I'm not getting this fascination with drafting linemen this year. We're already 2 deep at every position on the line. Not pro-bowlers deep but sure as hell better off than 5th or 6th round rookie deep. What value would a 5th or 6th round OL bring over a Gettis, Compton, LeRibeus, Hurt? We drafted 6 OL over the past 3 years and signed 3 more who are starting for us. What more do we need to do on the OL?

You got your wish then. Brandon Jenkins is a defensive end, a defensive end is a lineman.

Re: Draft wrap-up 2013

I gave our draft a A based off of need and value. We covered 3 huge holes with the two safeties and CB. Reed is a insurance policy for Fred, who I think they let walk next year anyways. To get Jenkins in the 5th round could potentially be the steal of the draft. Had he played in 2012, he most likely would have been a 2nd rounder or higher. Mike is the best in the business at finding incredible RBs so I'll defer to his judgement on these picks. Besides, Helu hasn't shown he can stay healthy and no way can we continue running Morris the way we did. We desperately needed a change of back to compliment him. We got that.


Solid draft. Whether they pan out or not is another story.

Re: Draft wrap-up 2013

Phillip Thomas & Bacarri Rambo. One a Fresno State Bulldog and the other a Georgia Bulldog. I can't wait to see both of these Bulldogs wearing the burgundy and gold.

I'm a little sketchy on Amerson. They obviously feel they can coach him up. He seems to have all the physical tools you could want.

Love the Reed pick. He could give us an all new dimension on offense.

Thomas should challenge for a starting job right off the bat.

Thompson's injuries are a concern, is he too fragile? He looks legit in the open field. Screen game could be real interesting with him.

Jenkins could contribute right away as a pass rusher.

Rambo could be another great value pick if he doesn't have any off the field issues. I hope he comes in with a big chip on his shoulder.

Jamison sounds like another Shanny-back. A relative unknown who might be an ideal fit in this running game.

Overall I think we definitely took some risks, but we also have some possible high reward guys too. Nice balance of addressing big needs on D while also giving the offense some new toys.
