Anyone watch the Alabama/Georgia game today? three great prospects in that game, Eddie Lacy is probably a 2nd/3rd round pick, and TJ Yeldon RB and Amari Cooper WR are two monsters
I agree that Jordan will likely be labeled as a better fit in the 3-4. However, I think he has a fantastic skill set that would be desirable for any DC, especially considering how many different fronts are used today. He could easily move into the DE position on passing downs and have Long kick inside. That front 7 could be awesome if properly utilized.
When I look at Tavon Austin the first word that comes to mind is "weapon." I see him being a guy that could see 7-10 touches a game, plus return duties, and be a threat to take it to the house at any moment. We have that in the passing game with Givens, but we could definitely use more of that kind of player, especially in the return game. When was the last time we had a KR or PR for TD?
I like Bell a lot as well. I have only seen him a few times, but every time I have seen him he was putting away the other team with authority in the 2nd half. He is a very underrated back, IMO. Picking him in the 3rd round is probably a dream...but if we move out of the 1st round we would likely have another 2nd rounder to play with.
I really can't wait until we get a bit closer and the underclassmen declare. I always get more into it at that time because the pool is somewhat incomplete right now.
