In terms of value or potential.

I've got to go with Jamie Collins. I read a little about him before Richter's MEI thread and thought he'd be a great 3-4 OLB. Obviously we don't run a 3-4 or very little of it, but (I don't want to jinx it) we've seen what the Broncos have done with Von Miller, and I hope that we can use his versatility in much the same way. He has a lot of experience in coverage and could be one of the best cover LBers immediately as well as being a freak athlete and a scary pass rushing prospect.

I was clamoring for Collins in the 2nd and was ecstatic when we picked him. Gives us an option to run either a 4-3 or a 3-4 and can play in so many different positions.

Excited to see what he can do for us.

Dobson. He is exactly what we needed at the WR position. Strong, tall, sure handed, goes up and fights for possession of the ball and catch. I am very excited to see how he fits in.

I'm up on Collins, followed closely by Boyce. Collins is the best freak defensive player we've had since Adalius Thomas (1st season). I am 100% sure he will contribute from Day 1 and he and Chandler will be top 5 pass rushing duos in three years. Boyce just reminds me of that ultra athlete as an offensive weapon. He's the definition of a game changing WR for us, IMO. I know not many is high on Ryan, but I've liked him the moment I laid eyes on him. He will be our #2 CB at the least in the run and I will eat fish if he doesn't get there. I hate fish.

Duron Harmon. I love Bill's trolling picks Laughing

But seriously, Jamie Collins. However I think the draft is ultimately going to be defined by the success or failure of the WR's.

I love the Jamie Collins pick, and getting him in the late second was amazing but I think I'm gonna go with Boyce. I haven't been this excited for a fourth rounder since Hernandez.

I think Boyce will be the most ready to contribute from day 1, but I love Collins and Dobson's upside.

Josh Boyce....I'm excited to see if this kid is the one who can finally fill the "Troy Brown" role. Extremely intelligent and just has an instinctual understanding of how to play the game.

I'm excited about Dobson if for no other reason than the fact that he's taller than 6'1 Laughing

I fell in love with him instantly when I put on the tapes after the mention here. He's gonna be a game changer on our defense. I wonder how that feels...

Dobson, who very well may win OROY. Not since JERRY RICE has a talented receiver come into a better situation.

Funny that you're so high on Collins because of me, even though I didn't pimp him nearly as hard as some other prospects in the past. I love him as an athlete, but I have some real criticisms of him too, namely that he doesn't have much in the way of a developed set of pass rush moves and only marginal hand usage. He also needs to play more violently, considering how fast and explosive he is. Very pleased with the pick, obviously, but it's not a slam dunk in the same way a guy like J.J. Watt was. That being said, I really have a hard time seeing how he fails, barring injury or difficulties with the scheme.
