Swinging for the Fences in the 6th7th round.
There are several players that suffered injuries in during the 2011 season that I would love to see us take a stab at in the 6th and 7th rounds. Rarely do we find a player in these rounds that makes the team so why not draft a 2nd rounder that is schedule to miss most of the 2012 season and simply place them on IR. Here are my candidates.
Josh Chapman, Alabama DT
Tore his ACL in Oct. and played thru the season on a bad knee. He is the Prototypical runstuffer. I would love to have him a bit taller(6'3 or 6'4) but he is expected to be available in the 6th and 7th rounds. When healthy he is easily a 2nd or 3rd rounder. Possible late 1st rounder.
WR Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma
I love this kid. All time leading WR in NCAA div 1 history (I still call it that). Has the quickness I wish I dreamed about. Stock should raise as he is getting healthier.
