This is my no trade draft and the talent must be within ranger according to CBS draft and others.
#29 Dee Ford DE Auburn 6-2 252 4.59 40 29 reps at 225
Incredible combination of speed and strength and has the one thing nobody can measure which is incredible heart and determination. Needs experience at DE in NFL but is a n instant upgrade as a pass rusher in passing downs.He is a hybrid OLB and DE and has flexibility to play either position along with the speed and strength. AN instant upgrade to the pass rush.
#62 Dominic Easley DT Florida 6-2 288
Two ACL surgeries drop him from a top 15 draft pick to here and he is worth the risk. He is the energizer bunny on steroids on the field. Easily the most explosive player in the draft, if healthy, and that includes Clowney. There is a time and a place to take a risk on a furture superstar and Easley at #62 is it. He dominated SEC guards and tackles so size is not an issue. Very strong and exceptionally quick. Another interior upgrade to pass rush. Put him next to Vince and watch the havoc.
#93 Tevin Smith Florida State OLB 6-3 218 4.47 40
That hybrid LB, CB, Safety BB has been looking for since Rodney. The only thing with Smith is convincing him playing a combo safety DB is beneficial to his career and I think BB can do that and if he does this kid starts day one beside McCourty. Elite speed, loose hips, tough as nails,very hard worker, pushes himself etc.. As a linebacker he is limited at 218 but as a safety/DB hybrid Mr Smith could bring us to the promised land. A leader on an off the field and seemingly high character kid. He just needs to know what is best for him and BB can convince him.
#127 Travis Swanson Arkansas C 6-5 312
A good value pick here and someone who could press Wendell for playing minutes.
#140 Colt Lyerla TE 6-4 242 4.56
Here I make my risk pick of the draft and I do it now because quite bluntly talent wise nobody in this draft is close to Lyerla. Without his off the field issues he is a top 15 pick and to be blunt Ebron could not carry his gym bag to the field. He is compared to Gronk and if he gets straightened out is a lock all-pro tight end according to Rob Rang.
He can play the the move or classic TE and is an excellent blocker. His off the field issues are fixable and Pats have taken chances on kids with these issues before and they should here. He could hang out with Gronk and learn one can be goofy, nuts and enjoy life without junk.
#198 Taylor Gaffney Stanford RB 6-0 220 4.49
Another body for backfield rotation
#206 Richard Rogers Stanford TE 6-4 257
An interesting prospect who is team first.
#222 Glenn Carson Penn State ILB 6-3 238
Solid backup at ILB for Hightower
