1[14] DT Ra'Shede Hageman [Minnesota] 6'6" 318lbs. [5.02 40, 32 reps, 35.5" vert, 9'6" broad, 7.87 cone]

I am not saying that Hageman is my first choice, or that he is an exceptional value at 14. What I am saying is that he checks a lot of the boxes on the Phil Emery checklist.

-Athletic: At 6'6" 310lbs. he ran a 5.02 which is a really good time, but his 35.5" vertical and 9'6" broad jump are insane for a guy that big and that is a great test of explosive leg power. Add in 32 reps with long arms and you have a Kyle Long type athlete to size ratio.

-Projectable: If you ask yourself if Hageman figures it all out will he be the best DT in this draft? The answer is probably yes. Emery has shown that he will take a player with a ton of potential and give him to coaches to smooth out the rough edges.

Hageman has played DL for 3 years there is still tons of room to grow.

-Size: Hageman is huge and meets every phsyical criteria that you look for.

The 2 biggest concerns for Hageman are production and off field issues, after a rough childhood, and those are the 2 things that Emery has shown a willingness to consistently ignore.

Hageman may be the biggest home run swing of the 1st round guys and has the physical ability to be the best player in the draft. Phil Emery has shown that he is very willing to take a risk to get a dominant player down the line.



Now assuming Hageman is the pick, who would you fill in around him?

2[51]

3[82]

4[117]

5[156]

6[183]

6[191]

Assuming we pick Hageman I would then draft.


2. CB Bradley Roby
3. LB Telvin Smith
4. S Craig Loston / Terrance Brooks
5 RB DeAnthony Thomas /WR Bruce Ellington
6 BPA
7 BPA

I think if we get a core of four defensive prospects and couple them with some offensive weapons and a developmental QB, we're in good shape.
I don't think any of these picks would be a reach and they players we add on defense make us look a little bigger, and we get younger at key positions, which is a good thing.

My dark horse was T. Smith. He reminds me somewhat of Ogletree last season, he's a little undersized but has the frame and speed to be a disruptive player. Roby (dreads) would be an immediate plug-in at nickel or bump him outside on 3rd downs? DeAnthony and B. Ellington would both add value on offense or in the return game and fit our scheme pretty well. Craig Loston (dreads) or Terrance Brooks would both be great 4th round picks IMO good size/speed right there.

I'm a bit confused by Crichton in the 2nd, just because of his position, otherwise, i don't see any problem with that.

Can't have enough talent up front. I don't love any other players there. We don't have a sure thing at #4 DE and by his 3rd year he can take over for Allen. I can't see Washington or Idonije making the team and Bass would be best served as a #5 and possibly gameday inactive.

Assuming Hageman is the pick. (My pick as well)

2nd rd = D. Bucannon SS Wash St. (Mundy can handle the FS position adequately)

3rd rd = P. Gaines CB Rice (Gaines can come in and immediately contribute and learn from Tillman/Jennings while developing his skills and filling out his 6-0 193 lb frame.)

4th rd = Will Clarke DE West Virginia (Has good size and will have time to develop and fill in as a rotational player.)

5th rd = Antone Exum FS/Hybrid V. Tech (Can sit for a while and make sure he is fully healthy and will bring competition to the FS position and I could see him beating out Conte in the future.)

6th rd = Isaiah Crowell RB Ala St. (Drafted off of talent and the hope he can mature mentally and physically and eventually take over for Forte.)

6th rd = Colt Lylera TE Oregon (Another extremely talented guy that comes in and is mentored by Long and Trestman. Will take our offense to another level if he pans out. Worth a flyer in the 6th rd.)

Here's what I came up with...

1 [14] Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

2 [51] Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood



Division II standout with great size for a corner, great zone instincts, ball skills, fantastic anticipation. Attacks the ball at its highest point, he didn't play against top competition. Could be a solid player for many years

3 [82] Jackson Jeffcoat DE/Hybrid OLB, Texas



Football smart. Solid instincts and overall sack production. Has NFL pedigree, father played for the Cowboys. Does have a injury history though and lacks lower body strength.

4 [117] Dion Bailey, FS, USC



Started for 2 years at USC playing linebacker. Made the switch to Safety his junior year. Still learning the position, good hands, used to playing up in the box. Can play special teams.

5 [156] D'Anthony Thomas RB, Oregon




Speed, speed and more speed! Gadget player, can line up at WR or Rb. Cause's nightmares for defensive coordinators. Very small, lacks size and goes down easily. Has fumbling issues and injury history. Punt and Kick returner.

6 [183] Aaron Murray QB, Georgia



Four year starter while at Georgia. School-record holder in attempts (1,478), completions (921), passing yards (13,166) and touchdowns (121). Quick release, mobile, short in frame but makes up for it with smarts. Team leader. Tore acl, durability issues? Would be a great QB for Trestmen to groom.

6 [191] Walt Aikins CB, Liberty



Dismissed from Illinois after arrest on a felony charge. Outstanding size. Good press strength. Good athletic ability, can keep stride with receivers down the field. Needs time to develop, can play special teams.

2. CB Marcus Roberson - 2014 nickel, 2015 starter
3. FS Dion Bailey - pushes for PT right away. Ball hawk.
4. RB Terrence West - strong backup, future top back
5. WR Jared Abbrederis - overachieving sub package chain mover
6. SS Dezmen Southward - high upside, elite athlete
6. TE Richard Rodgers - drawn comparison to Garrett Graham

I actually think Bailey would be an even better SS than a FS. I don't like him trying to line up on a slot WR but I think he comes up and takes contact well, and can add 10-15 pounds to help on impact without losing much if any speed. He won't be Whitner or Ward vs the run, but I think he will be able to come in and take the physicality of the NFL pretty well.

I don't see Bailey as a FS at all. He's great at SS though and close to the LOS. If it wasn't for the terrible 40 I think he could've been a top 50 pick.

2 Deone Bucannon S Pairs with Mundy in the starting backfield
3 Kieth McGill CB 6'3" corner that can cover.
4 Yawin Smallwood ILB The guy to groom for the Mike position.
5 Aaron Murray QB Trestman's project
6 Kevin Norwood WR move the chains type WR.
6 Storm Johnson RB short yardage RB
And btw, if we are picking Hageman in the first, IMO Emery has traded down and we are making a few more picks.

IMO the scenario is really the same regardless of which DT we pick at 14.
