1st round: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan-Lewan not only gives us a killer OT combo for years to come, he has top 10 ability. This pick is a realistic dream, and he could very well be slamming Steelers defenders en route to the playoffs. Monroe+Osemele+Zuttah+Yanda+Lewan=A healthy, happy Joe Flacco.
2nd round: Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame-Owen Daniels has an impressive resume, but he is coming off an injury & isn't a spring chicken, nor is Dennis Pitta, so Niklas is a great pick here. His physicality is evident seeing as he's a converted defender, so he has no problem putting his pads on defenders in the run game.
3rd round: Dri Archer, RB/WR/RS, Kent State-Dri is the most explosive player I think I've ever scouted. His speed seems effortless, and he's a natural playmaker. We can find a way to get Dri on the field, and he will be Jacoby's heir in the return game as well.
3rd round (comp): Ed Reynolds, FS, Stanford-Reynolds is being slept on, but I can't understand why. He's one of the best deep safeties in this class, plus he's instinctive and a playmaker with the ball.
4th round (comp): Brent Urban, DL, Virginia-This guy is the real deal. I could see him immediately getting 3rd down snaps at one of the d-line spots. Think of a poor man's JJ Watt.
5th round (comp): James Wilder Jr., RB, FSU-Wilder is a grown man who would give us heart in our backfield that we haven't had since Jamal Lewis' departure. He would run through a brick wall & block for Flacco on 3rd downs.
6th round: Dustin Vaughn, QB, West Texas A&M-This guy fits the mold of Flacco damn near to the T. 6'5, 235, 4.8 40, live arm, and is a likeable commander of his huddle. I'm a huge Tyrod Taylor fan, but our system doesn't fit him going forward.
