    Guys without a true position, aren't ranked in the top five or could have used another year in school that I like: Aaron Lynch, Kareem Martin, Seantrel Henderson, Morgan Moses, Josh Huff, Davante Adams, Bradley Roby, Ahmad Dixon, James White and Isaiah Crowell.

    *would have been ranked higher had he not hurt his knee.
    **not really high on any of these guys as a franchise QB.

    Nice thread Fry. Interesting, I saw a mock that had us taking Nix at 11, even though they added a DT.

    Nix is a 2-down player. Offers almost nothing rushing the passer from the games I've seen. I can't value a DT that doesn't get after the passer at 11.

    Yeah, I don't want Nix...I want a stud pass rusher or key defensive piece...We will see though, most likely it will be offense, especially since Mack/Barr may be gone.
