Well here she is, enjoy!

1st rounder Ra'Shede Hageman DE, Minnesota-I know some of you guys don't like him but I love him. An incredibly strong presence on this defensive line that can be eased in not rushed, it's a perfect situation for him. He's a bull rusher, the type of guy that is just going to out power the guy across from him to get to the corner, but then once he gets there he has enough finesse to swim away from his man and clobber that quarterback. He's quick as well, former basketball player and tight end in high school. No QB, not even Kaep and Wilson are going to be able to escape from him that easily. He is still pretty raw but sitting a year behind/with Dockett is going to do wonders for the kid.

2nd rounder-Stanley Jean Baptiste CB, Nebraska-This is my homer pick, being a Husker fan I love Stanley. Converted from wide receiver in his freshman year he has all the physical attributes you would want in a corner. Standing at 6'3, 218 lbs, he has the physical makeup of Richard Sherman (A little heavier though) Some may be worried about whether he is athletically able with his 4.6 40 time at the combine, I syay forget about it. The kid is raw this one year behind Cro and PP will do him wonders. It will make him more physical at the line of scrimmage and teach his hands to not let someone beat him.

3rd Rounder-Carl Bradford OLB, Arizona St-I'll be honest, 3rd round is tough to project this year because you have so many options. I went with Bradford becIause he is quick and explosive. He has that high motor that everyone is looking for. Quick first step, could use some new moves in his arsenal to get to the QB to be even more effective. His closing speed is very impressive as well. But as far as pass coverage goes, he's pretty awkward and needs some work there. Could be able to take John Abraham's spot as our pass rushing linebacker once he leaves.

4th Rounder-Billy Turner OT/G, North Dakota St- I think Billy falls here because he went to that FCS school. No matter how impressive they were that's going to be looming in the minds of front offices everywhere but Steve knows that value is here. But when you think of Billy you think Athlete, you think quick hands. He's a smart pass blocker too, he knows how to play the momentum for the defender. Perfect player to help strengthen our line and possibly start on the right tackle spot.

5th Rounder-Kenny Ladler S, Purdue-One of my favorite prospects in this draft. It's a position of need as we all know and Kenny fills it perfectly. He has an ideal build and isn't afraid to use it. An intimidating presence in the middle of the field. Does need to work on his technique as far as tackling goes. Generally raw at covering tight ends. Purdue plays a lot of zone so there is still room for him to improve upon it. He forces turnovers, forced 10 his senior year, 5 interceptions and 5 forced fumbles. He guards his ground, plays a little conservative in coverage, doesn't want to give up the big play, which can be seen as a bad thing but it can also be seen in a good light. Little bit of a project but a project that I love.

6th Rounder-Crocket Gilmore TE, Colorado State-Kind of reminiscent of Jim Dray, big kid. Soft hands, not much of a threat after the catch. Only different is he is a better blocker than Jim, not saying much but he is. Did have an ACL tear which hurts his draft stock. Overall just looking for another Jim Dray like contributor.

I have to say I struggled with rounds 3 and 4 heavily, contemplated Christian Jones as he has the versatility to play inside rather than Bradford but I feel he's a reach in the 3rd round, and I like Bradford would rather not go defense all first 5 rounds. But even then it is tough to find an offensive player for that 4th rounder but I think we snag someone falling in the 4th whether it be offense or defense. Considered breaking one of my principles of the draft and plugging Bishop Sankey in the 4th round but I don't think he falls there. Overall we fill some holes and focus on the long term health of this franchise by getting some players behind some of the older talents we have.

Great job, man. Plenty of talent all around.

I won't be upset if we come away with Hageman on draft day. Guy could end up being a stud.

SJB is a nice pick in round 2. He's a phyiscal specimen but he's raw. There won't be any pressure in AZ for him to start right away. Him and PP21 as a future combo sounds very nice.

Bradford is a nice pick in round 3. Not his biggest fan but we need to add a passrusher somewhere. Would imagine he would start out as a 3rd down passrushing specialist.

Really like Billy Turner and he should compete with Massie for the starting RT spot.

Think you added talented players in round 5 & 6 who will make the team and have a chance to contribute.

6th Rounder-Crocket Gilmore TE

I like Hageman, can seamlessly replace DD and is a very good athlete with nice size

I haven't heard AMAZING things about Baptiste, but I like his developmental value, drafting him would be a step in the direction of getting a tall, nex-gen secondary

Bradford I like, he has kinda fallen off the radar a bit, but I love his production and his pass-rushing potential. the thing I like about him the most though is he can be either a OLB or a ILB, which are both needs

Turner is feel is underrated, he is easily the best offensive lineman from the FCS, the thing I also like about him, he can play either G or T which makes his developmental value all that much better

Kenny Ladler I haven't heard much of, I hope that's a good thing because if his all that you say he is, I could see him being a combo safety

Gilmore's stock is on the rise, I don't think we land him in the 6th but he still is a nice guy to have, he has flashed clutch catching ability and some run after the catch ability, is also a decent blocker so he fits BA's mold.

I like this draft, its not amazing, but I like it

Not bad at all. I'm pretty confident our first round pick is going to be either Hageman or Ealy (leaning more towards Ealy). Just have a feeling those are going to be the BPA's when we draft.
