I had to write one, I'm just so excited. In my other projections, I gave us 2 4ths, 1 5th, and 1 6th for comps. Now it's official that we're getting 1 3rd, 2 4ths, and 1 5th. That basically means that we're trading a 6th for a 3rd. That made me so excited, so I had to write this. And if you were wondering, I love the Jeremy Zuttah trade. We trade a 5th for a starting C. Even if he wouldn't work as a starter, a 5th rounder for depth is fine as well. And we also get a 7th rounder this year for McKinnie, so that's another pick for us.
Round 1: HaHa Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama. We need a FS and Dix could come in right away and start for us.
Round 2: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt. Matthews is the perfect all-around WR to complement Torrey and now we have a huge plus. He doesn't have to be great right away because we have Steve Smith for at least 1 year.
Round 3: C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa. I hate to copy lots of picks from my previous mock, but I loved that draft. Here we get a very good TE who is a great blocker and has good hands.
Round 3 Comp: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska. This would make our secondary great. Having Baptiste, Webb, and Jimmy at CB, then Dix and Elam at S, would be a great secondary for years to come.
Round 4 Comp: Bryan Stork, C, Florida State. Stork has the potential to be a great C with Kubiak.
Round 4 Comp #2: Brent Urban, DE, Virginia. Yes, I'm still obsessed. Such a great pick. Depth now and potential to start later. He is 6'7" tall.
Round 5 Comp: Ryan Carrethers, DT, Arkansas State. This is the Terrence Cody monster NT replacement.
Round 6: Max Bullough, LB, Michigan State. This gives us a very good run-stopping ILB.
