    I think it's like that for everyone this year. I could name 5-10 players we might take and I still may be wrong on all of them.

    Maybe you should do it by position instead of by player?

    DE
    DT
    OG/C
    CB
    S
    LB

    something like that

    I'm thinking it'll be difficult to set different odds for different players so I'll probably go 3 to 1 for everyone except "other".

    Here's the list:

    Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
    Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
    Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois
    Nick Perry, DE, Southern Cal
    Michael Brockers, DT, LSU
    Devon Still, DT, Penn State
    David DeCastro, OG, Stanford
    Chandler Jones, DE, Syracuse
    Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
    Donta Hightower, LB, Alabama
    Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State
    Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
    Courtney Upshaw, DE, Alabama

    Any more?

    Those are my five, with Brockers my favourite.

    I think Jerrell Worthy is very possible, and maybe Vinnie Curry

    I know defense and OL are our biggest needs. But I really think Michael Floyd should be on the list as well. Mainly because we really have no idea how picks 1-19 will go down.

    I think we have to look at this logically (i.e. who is likely to actually be there when we pick while also being rated very highly on our board) rather than just focusing on the positions which are the greatest needs. I could very easily see a scenario where Floyd falls and is the top rated player on our board when pick 20 rolls around. And I honestly think he is much more likely to be there when we pick than several players currently on the list. Also, he has reportedly visited with the team already. So there's legitimate interest.

    That's what happens when you pick later.

    If you think it's hard to figure our draft out, try deciding who the Giants and Packers pick. Those top teams are in the same boat we're in.

    I really hope we don't get Brockers. Sophmores that leave their school after only 2 seasons of not even recording great stats don't deserve this much hype. Not to mention he had the best secondary in college helping him out. I believe our FO will see this too. If you replaced Brockers with Kirkpatrick or Gilmore I could definitely roll with your 5..
