12 - Rashan Gary, EDGE - Michigan
A player that has about 0,01% chance of actually falling to pick 12. Don't think he needs all that much introduction, anymore.
30 - Marquise Brown, WR - Oklahoma
A pick I'd love to see. Already wrote a bit about him.
44 - Johnathan Abram, S - Mississippi State
This would be a perfect addition to our defense. You can get him into the gameplan on 1st against run-heavy teams, especially with Amos being such a safe player. You can then get him on the field in passing situations as a nickle LB, get him on tight ends et cetera.
It's beneficial in more ways that one. We've had the discussion about Amos dropping into one of those linebacker roles, but with Abram on the team, you won't have to move him around. Could be a big plus, since Amos defines the word safety and is a guy you can truly depend on deep.
75 - Juan Thornhill, S - Virginia
And another safety. One that's more in the mold of the guy we want to have playing at safety full-time. He can fly, has a nose for the ball and is versatile enough to move around the field. He takes risks, but that's why he'd be perfect to couple up with Amos.
I don't think picking two safeties would be that bad an idea. There's no one on the roster right now I'd say can't be upgraded by a decent rookie or has actually earned a spot, rather than our big signing.
Interesting tidbit to get everyone riled up here... His NFL.com scouting report says he compares best to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
114 - Kahale Warring, TE - San Diego State
A guy with lots of potential. Great athlete. Not the fastest tight end you'll every see, has all the tools to develop into a decent starter, at the very least.
There's some very good value at TE around round 3 and 4. Between Wilson, Warring and Oliver you have three guys who are all good receivers, but need some work in blocking. They all have some upside and I'd gladly get either of them at this point.
118 - Rodney Anderson, RB - Oklahoma
Big gamble. Got season-ending injuries in 3 of his 4 college seasons. That said, talentwise he'd normally be closer to round 1 than round 4. I feel like this is the point in the draft where you don't find players without faults, anyway. Might as well go for the home run.
Perfect addition to Aaron Jones and our zone blocking scheme. Sees holes developing, can cut upfield and through traffic and has reliable hands. The fact that he'll have trouble running outside the tackles in the NFL according to most scouts doesn't bother me that much at this point in the draft. Especially not since we have Jones on our roster.
Overall, I would've liked to get some OL-help in and maybe get a prospect at OLB, but the draft didn't pan out that way. If we could get this haul of players, I'd be more than happy, though.
