Show/Hide All Player Comments Round (Overall) Pos Name College Cls Height Weight 40
Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (16th) HB Eddie Lacy Alabama rJr 5'10 1/4" 220 lbs. 4.53
 

Analysis: Warmack is gone before we pick. Barrett Jones is not going to go this early. I think Lacey will have a great combine, and shows he is the best RB on the board. This is going to come off as a surprise pick to most of you right now, but just wait until after the combine. If he is the #1 RB on the board then I ask you, why not? We have not seen very good production from SJax of late and DRich is not an every down back. Lacey gives us a massive production upgrade on offense, in the red zone in particular, which will help Bradford a lot more than some rookie WR... He reminds me of a mix between Trent Richardson and Alfred Morris. I think he has the ability to immediately upgrade the RB position, I think he can easily run for 1000 yds and 10 tds as a rookie.

Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (22nd) OC Barrett Jones Alabama rSr 6'4 1/4" 305 lbs. 4.97
 

Analysis: Here we take Jones. I think he also has a great combine and shows he is able to play OG just as good as Warmack. He probably won't until early 2nd rd but we have a mid 2nd rd pick and don't want to chance not getting him. When the 2013 season is over, I think he and Warmack will compare equal.

Show/Hide Player Comments 2nd (16th) FS Eric Reid LSU Jr 6'1 3/4" 212 lbs. 4.59
 

Analysis: We take Reid here. Best safety option and that is the biggest need on this defense currently.

Show/Hide Player Comments 3rd (16th) FS Tyrann Mathieu Without Jr 5'7 3/4" 178 lbs. 4.51
 

Analysis: No surprise as we took Janoris Jenkins last year, we take Matheieu this year. He is a dynamic player, with the ball instincts of Ed Reed. He may take over as starting FS from Mikel by the end of preseason. We have to take him here as other teams will start to show interest after the 3rd rd, and we absolutely need him. He is likely to become an instant rookie starter like Jenkins, and make an immediate impact.

Show/Hide Player Comments 4th (16th) WR Dri Archer Kent St. rSr 5'7 3/4" 173 lbs. 4.26
 

Analysis: A lot of you probably have no idea who this guy is. So let me tell you, he is probably the fastest player in this draft class. He could easily run under a 4.30 40, but for sure will be somewhere in the 4.3s. He's a smaller back, more like Darren Sproles, but first I'll start off by saying he is much much better than the recent Sproles clones - Jaquiz Rodgers, etc. This guy can play WR as well, and WILL be running by people in the NFL, either for the Rams or not. Youtube this guy.

Show/Hide Player Comments 5th (16th) OT Reid Fragel Ohio St. Sr 6'6 1/2" 298 lbs. 4.92
 

Analysis: Jrry had us taking him and that got me thinking, we should take a chance on him. He is a monster in human form, 6'6'' 298 solid muscle no fat, 10% body fat. This guys body looks like JJ Watt. He was a TE until the 2012 college season, and he actually has some speed as well - look for him to run the fastest 40 of all offensive lineman.

Show/Hide Player Comments 6th (16th) QB Collin Klein Kansas St. rSr 6'5 1/8" 226 lbs. 4.73
 

Analysis: Shocking? Not to me. I think the final 2 to 3 picks of the draft should be used on absolute chance. Klein was a star in college, and we need a backup QB. I would love to draft him here and groom him. If Bradford doesn't work out, god forbid, perhaps Klein shows some flashes.


Show/Hide Player Comments 7th (16th) TE Jake Stoneburner Ohio St. rSr 6'4 5/8" 245 lbs. 4.78
 

Analysis: This guy has draft steal written all over him. He is a very good receiving TE, fast, tall, runs solid routes. He was also the go to guy in 2011, and then when Urban Meyer took over in 2012 he became an afterthought for a QB who struggled to throw the ball in Braxton Miller. He's 6'6'' and will probably run in the 4.6 range in the 40.

If no trades are possible, I love this draft. I love the Lacey pick, I think he can be the back of the future for us, just like SJax was when we had Faulk. If we let Jackson go this would make perfect sense. I don't think the other backs in this draft measure up to Lacey. He is just too powerful. The stiff arm he put on the DE in the national championship game was so awesome. This is my draft man crush.

I totally agree with you on Eddie Lacy being a back of the future and yes, his situation reminds me a lot of when SJ was coming out. I can't agree with you though on Jones being as good of an OG as Warmack though. He's not even that on his own team.

I know exactly who Dri Archer is and while I am a fan of his at the collegiate level (He may be the most explosive guy in the draft, should he declare), I'm not a big fan of using a high pick on him. In fact, I'm not sure he is big enough or durable enough to even handle the NFL. Maybe, maybe not. Anyways, I would love to use a pick on him late in the draft as a KR option but not any sooner.

I somewhat agree on Dri Archer. I just took a guess really because with the combine, you never know what will happen. What if he runs a 4.20 40? That could really actually happen with him and if he does, he will be going higher than the 5th rd. If the combine shows he has some strength, and is the fastest football player alive, I would take him in the 4th rd and like you say, put him back there for kicks and punts. I do realize that he is a luxery pick though, and our team doesn't have that luxery yet, we need depth.
