I'm just looking for some feedback, here. I'm fairly close to a decision on both of these, but since the draft is still so far away, I thought it could help stoke even more draft talk.
I'm participating in a bunch of those "blogger drafts" where a rep from each team makes a pick. My pick is coming up soon in two of them, and I'd like to hear what you say. Maybe you can sway me:
MOCK 1 - first round, #15 pick.
SCENARIO - Incredibly, Matthews AND Cushing are both off the board, as is Jenkins,Vontae Davis, and all the obvious ones (Raji, Orakpo, Brown, Curry, etc).
This is the one I'm having the toughest time with. TT helped me out on this via email, but I'd like to hear others opinions as well.
I'M LEANING TOWARD - UGH. I feel like I want to reach for Sintim, but I also feel like I could get a guy like Tyrone McKenzie in the 2nd. I know we signed Smith, but maybe Ayers could be the guy Ayers/Mario/Smith could be our version of Strahan/Tuck/Umeniyora from a few years ago. So in short - I DON'T KNOW WHERE I'M LEANING!!
MOCK 2 - third round, #77 pick. Rd 1 pick - Matthews, OLB. Rd 2 pick - Sean Smith CB/S
SCENARIO - There are two picks to go before I'm up. Still available are:
RB Rashad Jennings, RB Andre Brown, DE Lawrence Sidbury, SS Chip Vaughn.
I'M LEANING TOWARD - Jennings and getting our DE in the 4th, but I feel like Sidbury could be a great speed-rush addition to change the pace of our power guys in a DE rotation. I feel like Sidbury could be a cheap-ass Everette Brown. So - Jennings and DE in the 4th, maybe like the guy from Tech... or Sidbury and RB Gartrell in the 5th round or so.
Help me BRB. You're my only hope. I want to make the most informed decision possible. Thanks for reading.
