I will put together a quick mock. Later rounds I will just pick names for the positions I would go after. 1.8 Anthony Barr, OLB UCLA2.40 Stephon Truitt, DT Notre Dame (Might be a bit optimistic at this position.)3.72 Chris Borland, ILB Wisconsin3.96 Zach Mettenberger, QB LSU4.104 Ahmad Dixon, SS Baylor (Harry plays FS)5.136 Josh Mauro, DE Stanford6.168 De'Anthony Thomas, RB Oregon (That Skat back we need). Although CBS has him rated 6-7 round guy. Apparently Bulger has him going 23 overall to St. Louis. 7.200 Kevin Norwood, WR Alabama (route runner with reliable hands)With this draft, of the LBs and DEs. I would switch to a 3-4 although I am not sure a front 3 of B-Rob, Floyd and Player to be named later would work. But I would have Barr at SOLB, Borland and Greenway in the middle and Everson on the other side. No CB? I would sign a FA. What do you think?
And I know you know that we need a QB. But Watkins just doesn't do anything for me. When our defense needs so much help.
I totally get the concept. That would be very formidable and would be an instant impact for sure. But from my view, there will be a guy rated like that next year. I like the defensive prospects available in this draft, those who could impact immediately. Top guy I think is the guy you listed. Mack, he just looks NFL.
Overall rank would be as follows of those 4 guys. MackBarrWatkinsMosleyWatkins is talented, but I can't see him downfield physical play at the NFL level. He can wow you. But size is the issue for me. Same with Mosley, his 233 frame for an NFL MLB seems light and if you make him gain 20 lbs you might lose his natural speed. I think he has the most natural talent and instincts. I also heard he is a great leader. Something you want in your mike LB. I like Barr because of his size and ability. But I would only take him if the Vikings were intending on switching to 3-4. Otherwise, I am sure Mack is off the board cause I think he can play in both 3-4 or 4-3 but is more suited in the 3-4 like Barr. If Mack or Bridgewater are on the table I stay put and draft on of them. If we are switching to 3-4 I do exactly what my mock was. If I am sticking with 4-3, I strongly consider trading down a few spots and nab Mosley.
They say we are staying with 4-3 but going man instead of tampon 2.
