PRETTY GOOD (BUT NOT GREAT) DRAFT.

Posted April 27, 2013

VERY solid Draft this year. Picked up the 2nd round pick we needed, and added some solid players through round 6. 

At the top of the Draft we got a potential rookie starter at CB in D.J. Hayden, and OT Menelik Watson, I think can contribute right away at Guard for us. But if he's moved to Tackle he's probably a project. 

The guts of the Draft had us grab a 3rd string QB in Tyler Wilson, and a LB named Sio Moore that is probably going to only be middle of the road throughout his career; but does enough already to be solid in the system we're said to be running.

At the bottom we got a pair of TE's in Nick Kasa, and Mychal Rivera. I'm not sure why we got 2 TE's unless we plan on releasing some of the 3 we already had in stock. We got ourselves a RB that earlier I felt rather "meh" about until I did some digging. VERY happy about the RB. VERY happy.  

The last pick of the 6th and first pick pf the 7th (Stacy McGee and Brice Butler respectively), don't exactly leave me jumping for joy. A DT who can't get out of his own way, and a WR who never caught more than 24 balls in any year of his COLLEGE career. Seems like a wasted pick to me.

The LAST pick though! DE David Bass has my curiosity peaked. Usually scouting reports can give you negatives with the positives; but aside from being a DE/OLB tweener and coming from a smaller program, I can't find one. I don't get it, but he's worth a 7th round gamble.
