Luke Joeckel
Jake Matthews
Damontre Moore
Ryan Swope

The Top 3 have a 1st round grade right now at need positions (if we don't resign Long). Joeckel and Matthews are obviously familiar with and excelled in Sherman's ZBS. Swope has the look of a highly polished slot receiver who could step in and be the #4, at worst.

Go with what you know?

He was a UDFA, so the odds were against him making the roster.

If Jake Matthews slides to round two I'd be on him like stink on a monkey.

Give me Ryan Swope all day every day out of that list of prospects!

Normally i'd agree with you, but when you bring a person in at our number 1 need position who has run the offense for 4 years and he can't cut it...you don't feel good about drafting straight out of the same system. All I am saying is I would rather have a number of WR prospects before even looking at Swope

Apples to oranges. Sometimes a guy isn't physically talented. Fuller had mediocre hands, was slow and couldn't create separation. Has nothing to do with his ability to mentally grasp the scheme. I agree what you're saying about drafting talent, but to look Swope in because he's from A&M isn't seeing that he IS talented. Very talented.

Swope is a guy who will kill the NFl on bubble screens and crossing patterns all day long. All those annoying plays the patriots ran yesterday with welder is what he can do and Swope excels at breaking tackles. I prefer we get some on outside that can run by people first..

Damontre Moore and Taylor lewman from Michigan are the 2 guys I want in round 1. Moore has John Abraham all over him..

Mathews although not real athletic is very solid

Luke Joeckel or Damontre Moore should be at the top of our board in the 1st round. It looks like we are going to be picking in the top 10 and one of them should be there.

Joeckel is ready to come in and start at LT for $10-11 million per year less than Jake Long. Thats $10-11 million that can be spent in free agency and get more bang for the buck.

Damontre Moore would be the pass rushing animal that we have been needing to play along with Wake. Cant go wrong with pass rush.

like I said Moore is my number 1 guy in this draft and if we can't get him spend some of jake long money on cliff Avril and draft Luke joekle or Michigan Taylor lewman who is the most athletic TAckle in years to come out..

Where does Swope project?

He would be a nice pick up in the 3rd....He isn't the answer at WR, but he would great in the rotation and provide someone that Tannehill is comfortable with.

Right in that area. Probably late 2nd, early 3rd would be my guess where he goes...right where I've got him pegged as a talent.

I have Swope as late 4th round, early 5th round. Joeckel first round. Moore second round, but hes putting up such big numbers this year that he will go in round 1. Matthews is a second rounder this year but like Moore can go in round 1 with his dads reputation playing a part in the push up.
