    I would have zero objections going Star first and DE 2nd round.

    Hankins would be great too. If not Hankins or Lotulelei then a good pass rushing DE. Would like to see a good power back in the second round. LeVeon Bell (6'2"--244) or Stepfan Bell would be good picks who could be around in the second. Montee Bell from Wisconson should also get a look. Then look at an interior OL for the third.

    We can get a decent Saftey in free agency. Jarious Byrd is a strong possibliity. Buffalo is notoriously cheap. Old Ralph Wilson hates spending money. The only reason they blew a ton of money on Mario Williams and Stevie Johnson last year is to get up above the salary floor in the new CBA. Now that they are above the floor they will go back to their cheap ways. There is not much else that would keep Byrd there past money. The team is in shambles and the city is a dump. Ever been there? I have. It is big time dump with a shrinking population and it sits in a snow belt. Not the best place to live.

    You also have to realize teams HAVE to spend more money now. So that idea might not be so fitting now for once cheap teams

    And personally I like gholston, and Jordan a bit more than lemonier mainly because of upside. Lemonier looks like he will be solid but might not be a star

    I've seen some good power backs that I feel will be around in rounds 3/4

    There's a lot of RBs I dig this year:

    Lattimore, Le'Veon Bell, Andre Ellington, Stepfan Taylor, Joseph Randle, Montee Ball, Mike Gillislee, Giovani Bernard... just to name a few.

    I'd like to see a 3rd round RB (paired w/ a FA) - luckily we'll get two 3rd (comp for Finny IMO).

    1st Round: DT (Star & Hankins) or Werner
    2nd Round: OG/C
    3rd Round: DE/DT/S/RB
    3rd Round: DE/DT/S/RB

    That's how I see it

    Dennis Johnson
    Miguel Maysonette


    Both solid down hill runners that could easily be available in the 4th round. Hell even Stepfan Taylor might be available at that time because rbs without elite speed are taken for granted in the nfl.

    I'm REALLY liking Mike Gillislee in the 3rd round (I think Bell & Taylor my other favs will be gone).



    5'11 210 - Projected 4.4-4.55 ish

    He was backing up Demps and Rainey, and didn't get a many looks. Went from being an unknown Florida player to a potential stud in the NFL.. because he started getting carries. The good thing is he won't be burnt out after 4 years of a heavy work load (like Montee Ball for example). Seems to be a good blocker, decent hands, runs hard N/S. Watch the video above, his blocking was average and best in Floridas zone blocking scheme - but he made due. He also dominated LSUs front 7. He's legit.
