From Matt Miller at Bleacher Report (yeah, I usually don't like BR too much, but I've been following this guy through this year's Senior Bowl and he does a decent job).

1. Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame

2. Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU

3. Louchiez Purifoy, CB, Florida

4. Craig Loston, SS, LSU

5. Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma

6. Jernea Thomas, FS, Georgia Tech

7. Howard Jones, OLB, Shepherd

 

I'd take that draft home and hug it like a baby.  

 

Now if I nit-picked, the way he has his draft set up, I would probably go TE Jace Amaro from Texas Tech with the 1st round pick and follow that up with OT Antonio Richardson from Tennessee with the 2nd round pick.  I like Zack Martin and he's a feel good story and all, but Miller describes his physical limitations.  Richardson doesn't have those limitations and I think has just as high a ceiling.  And, yes, I know picking Amaro has us not picking a WR in the first two rounds, but Amaro is a kid you can use as a "big" receiver but he can also run the TE routes in 2-TE sets.  I think I've made it clear I'm not a huge fan of the Shula offense and I think a valuable, big, fast TE would probably add more value to that offense than what is sure to be a lesser used guy like Benjamin (though I'd be thrilled with either).

Love the 2, 3 and 4 picks. Unrealistic though. In order to get those 3 we'd have to pick them 1, 2 and 3.

It would be OK. 

 

I don't know that Benjamin is going to be around in the second, so if you want him you'd probably have to pull the trigger in the first (not that I would do it at this point). I have my eye on Ju'Wuan James in the second because of his reported talent, motor and mean streak.  I don't know that Purifoy is going to last until our pick in the third, but I'd think about taking Keith McGill in his place, but would more than likely try to sneak McGill in the 4th. It would depend upon if Brandon Coleman is still on the board in the third, or some other WR like Abbrederis or Matthews. I'm also a proponent of getting Marcel Jensen, TE, who is reportedly a capable blocker in the later rounds.

I don't even know if i support taking a WR in the first or second round. Offensive big plays are for entertainment, solid run game and defense are for winning. I'll say get some good oline and a solid BLOCKING (not catching) TE and then CB. WR can go third or we can see what McNutt and the other guy can do and use the other picks for safety and some more Oline.

Go OL in the first, take Jarvis or Beckham in the 2nd, look into corner or DE in the 3rd (depending on hardys outcome), and then go from there

yeah not bad and would fill some needs. Still not as high on Kelvin Benjamin as everyone else seems to be - but it would fill a major need and would be a great value pick in the second. I don't see it happening but I would love to see us move up, get aggressive, and target a guy like Mike Evans or Sammy Watkins.

LOL@benjamin being there when we pick at the"back" end of the second. That pick alone throws the rest out the window.
