I'm so pissed over the Titans cutting LeGarrette Blount. I thought he had a great preseason, and showed so many flashes of upside it had me drooling. But nooooo... We had to keep freakin' Nick Schommer and add a couple of ST's linebackers. Ugh... He landed on the Bucs though, so hopefully they drop him and the Titans can pick him back up for the sole reason of mekkin me happy.
Either way, I think he's leaning more towards boom than bust.
It's still mind blowing how he fell to where he did. He was absolutely one of the top players in the draft. These 'character concerns' are either blown out of the water or overlooked completely.
2nd Round - Taylor Mays, S Southern California
I can be quoted on not being high on Taylor Mays but that was back when he was being talked about as a Top 15 pick. I will take his blend of size and athleticism every time in the middle of the second. Not to mention I wasn't very high on the later portion of the second round. Golden Tate was the only other I considered and with Dez in the first, it doesn't make sense. Terrence Cody? Carlos Dunlap? Not for me.
3rd Round - Donald Butler, LB Washington
A versatile linebacker who grew up in front of Huskies' fans' eyes. A lot of buzz came around Butler as the season got older and older. Aggressive LB project with upside. I understand he's likely out for the year but it was another round littered with WRs.
4th Round - Akwasi Owsu-Ansah, CB Indiana (PA)
5th Round - John Skelton, QB Skelton
6th Round - Jonathan Dwyer, RB Georgia Tech
7th Round - Syd'Quan Thompson, CB California
UDFA - Stafon Johnson, RB USC
Understandably, you had to stick to your rankings when going into this as evidenced with the Bryant and Clausen picks but when I have nothing to be compared to except a couple posts on a message board, it makes it a little easier.
My Dream Draft (Little late for this, but still good fun):
Round 1 - Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan - Pick 13
Round 2 - Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame - Pick 60
Round 3 - Navorro Bowman, LB, Penn State - Pick 91
Round 4 - Mike Williams, WR, Syracuse - Pick 101
Round 5 - Reshad Jones, S, Georgia - Pick 163
Round 7 - Dexter Davis, DE, Arizona State - Pick 236
I had to trade up and give up my 6th rounder.
I had Graham 4th overall, Tate 10th overall, Bowman & Williams with late first round grades and Jones with a second round grade. I always liked Davis and had a 4th round grade. Thought he might be able to develop into a solid contributor / pass rush specialist.

I honestly believe Reggie Bush has turned into exactly the type of player I envisioned.

I could possibly see Matthew Stafford Dropping out of the 1st round

Tahj Boyd has the best fundamentals of any QB in this class, I think his game translates great to the NFL.
