    Second draft with getting Watkins instead of Manziel

    Round 1: Sammy Watkins, WR
    Round 2: Jason Verrett, CB
    Round 3: Chris Borland, ILB
    Round 3: Zach Mettenberger, QB
    Round 4: Marcus Smith, DE (nice steal here as he slipped)
    Round 5: Justin Ellis, DT
    Round 6: James Wilder Jr., RB
    Round 7: Ron Powell, OLB

    Through these drafts, there is ALWAYS DE talent later on. I think this draft has a lot of good DE talent throughout it. If you think Mettenberger can come in and play in the NFL ... then this is a really good round of picks right here. As the first five guys are all starter material.

    I like that this addresses a couple of offense needs, but stays true to a defense mentality ... not sure which of these two drafts I like better.

    If Verrett is available in the 2nd round ... then he HAS to be taken. I personally do not like the Hyde pick because there are enough 6th and 7th round backs to fill a backup spot.
    If Manziel falls to 8 our hand is forced and we virtually have to take him. I think that Manziel at 8, Verrett at 40 and Borland at 72 would be FANTASTIC ... then at 96 we can take best defensive player available (could be a really good DE). I am not a huge fan of taking a guard unless he has value. I don't think reaching for a guard makes sense. Though if Yankey is there in the second round he is certainly tempting. Especially if Zimmer is happy with Cook and Rhodes next year.

    Yankley will NOT be there at 40; if he is, he is a STEAL. There are too many who need guards, and he is shooting up the depth chart. Also, I noticed a lot of DEs were dropping in this draft simulator; I'm not sure why. If it is right, there will be a wealth of DEs to choose from in the later rounds.

    Zimmer has a good reputation at getting talent for the defense in the later rounds. Because of this, I truly expect offense to be taken early, and the 3rd round on we will be focused on the D.

    I would not hate this for DE and CB because they seem to be so deep in this draft ... but he won't likely get a ton of LB production past the third round and we definitely are hurting there. Mosely, Mack, Barr, Borland, Jones, Shazier, Van Noy and Skov are around and I would love to see us find a way to nab two of them ... but we certainly need to try to get one.

    Probably my favorite one yet ....

    Just had some gems fall to me in the right positions ... and of course Clinton-Dix in the
    Second Round is highly unlikely ... but this draft would be fantastic

    Round 1: Johnny Manziel, QB
    Round 2: Ha'sean Clinton-Dix, S (Could have went OLB with Shazier, but Clinton-Dix makes our safeties a great tandem for years to come)
    Round 3: Christian Jones, ILB
    Round 3: Brandon Thomas, G
    Round 4: Marcus Smith, DE (too much value to pass on here, even for a CB)
    Round 5: Pierre Desir, CB
    Round 6: De'Anthony Thomas, RB (worth a shot here as someone who can cause matchup problems out of the backfield)
    Round 7: Ron Powell, OLB

    In the end ... we will have to address CB and LB in FA for sure (Verner still looking fantastic to me) but this draft provides a TON of talent with the top five picks all being players who might be good enough to start in the league already. Desir could also be a steal as he is from a small school and that hurts his stock ... of course he could be a bust.

    I really liked this draft though.

    I really liked this draft though.
    Thomas was a joy to watch in the "O" system, I think ha might be a good fit with the Vikings. I'm not sure if he could be "the guy" like AD, but in tandem with AD and a decent QB (Vick is the name being bantered about ATM), he really could shine and be a perfect fill in for our awesome RB.

    I saw some games where he needed to be the GUY because teams like Stanford shut down the aerial assault, and Thomas was just average.

    8 ILB C.J. MOSLEY ALABAMA

    40 CB JASON VERRETT TCU

    72 QB ZACH METTENBERGER LSU

    96 DE JACKSON JEFFCOAT TEXAS

    104 QB A.J. MCCARRON ALABAMA


    A LB who can pass protect and potentially a young Winfield clone. OF the 2 QBs, I feel there's a good chance that one will work out to be pretty good. Jeffcoat provides some rotational pass rush.

    IF we can keep Everson Griffen and sign some young FA upgrades at LG, DT and CB, this team could be set up to be competitive for years.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!
