    I managed to call the Locker pick last year..so here goes again.

    I think we go with Brockers.

    What does everyone think of him? I have watched a fair bit of film on him and love what I've seen. Is very aggressive off the snap, little raw and has some weight to put on but I think we are looking at AH the second here.

    In a dream world our line would look like this next season.

    I don't think he will be available. I think he has the highest ceiling of all the DL's. My gut tells me #8 to the Panthers.

    Spends a bit too much time on the ground fir my liking. He was getting rave reviews when he snuck in as a late prospect this draft as high as top ten... I don't see it. He adds even more depth at DT to this years class. And it's already stacked. Probably best to wait and see what the DT board looks at the second round pick.

    Grab from one of the weaker classes. Safety comes to mind. Also the shiny WR pick would be nice if it wasn't Jeffery. Insurance for britt. Who knows at this point. WR unlikely yes.

    He has a very high ceiling indeed, he looks like an extremely built DE though not sure how he would fair in a 4-3 DE position though. A lot are talking about him playing in a 3-4 defense.

    One DT that I am high on is Dontario Poe massive frame able to wear down defense take on multiple blockers. This would allow our linebackers to scrap without being touch and Klug/Jones to use their speed on the inside for sacks.

    Also Mike Martin is creating a lot of buzz experts are saying he will bench 50+ reps. When you look at it from a lineman prospective, what you are doing is separating or pushing the opposite away from you to get separation. The muscle endurance to do this all game is quite a feat, that is why I buy so hard into guys benches and their reps. If this holds true not only shows how strong he really is but he could have the ability to be a constant force.

    I'm also in love with the Martin pick. Also working at D1 in TN. Means we will be able to get extra info on him.

    The only question mark is the production numbers where not their in college.

    He played outta position in college. NT.. 34/43 and while he can consistently pull a second blocker he would be much better off as an UT beside Casey playing nose. A single on either one of these guys is a serious problem for our opponents.

    Only question mark really is his frame and how he might get the "tweener" tag. But he is still strong enough to pull doubles.

    I think we are seeing that a lot lately with prospects their are hardly any true position players anymore, because of in college of the different schemes they are ask to run and responsibilities.

    Yeah, multiple schemes with role players and such makes it harder to scout and predict what a prospect will do in the league.
