1. Lane Johnson, OT

2. Jessie Williams, DT

3. Nothing.

4. Phillip Thomas, S

6. Kenny Okoro, CB

6. Hugh Thornton, G

I've been aboard the Johnson bandwagon as long as anybody but the laughable notion that taking anything other than a lineman is "flashy" is downright nonsensical and outdated its almost comical to see people use it at this point.

I'm not directing this specifically at the OP, but I see a lot of people take this hollow soapbox whenever they feel we should take a lineman like "PSH! You stupid madden players just want your confoundit flahy receivers and junk? Me. I'm real knowledgable and mature and stuff because I'd rather take guys like Warmack who may not actually help us anymore than a similar guy in the 4th, but at least we don't have to face the frightening possibility that he may bust! I just am too scared to handle such a concept!"

Taking a talented prospect at a position of need isn't flashy. It's called being a well run organization.

Kicker shouldn't come before CB and G

Top kickers usually start getting taken around the 5th. I want a top kicker so we can stop playing musical chairs at the position for a while. Having a starting kicker locked up for the next 15 or so years is a lot more valuable than hoping for a stud like Hardy but more likely getting a third stringer or camp body.

LOL growl. I meant that I'm not putting pics and videos. I do get your point though.

I could see them both being there, probably not, but maybe. Thomas has cooled off some...not that hot right now. Lane Johnson will be there if the Bolts do not take him.
