Okay, here's our draft
Round 1 - WR Kendall Wright (Titans -20th pick)
Wanted to go DE with Coples, Ingram, or Mercilus, but the last two will be OLBs and Wright was too good a value. While we're building depth at WR with Breaston, Leonard Hankerson, and Greg Salas, Wright could come in and start.
Also considered DT Michael Brockers.
Round 2 - Zach Brown (Titans - 52nd pick)
I guess we liked the Titans' draft.
We're desperate at OLB, and Brown was a good value who kept us from drafting Ingram or Mercilus earlier. Lots of good potential picks as we considered DTs Devon Still and Jerel Worthy, OLB Lavonte David, and DE Vinny Curry.
Round 3 - QB Russell Wilson (Seahawks - 75th pick)
Easy choice here as we continue our strategy of drafting an early QB every year until we find one. (Sanchez and Clausen haven't yet proven themselves for us.)
If Wilson wasn't available we would've gone with (in order): DT Mike Martin, WR Mohammad Sanu, OLB Nigel Bradham, WR Chris Givens, or DE Jake Bequette. Taking a WR here would've probably pushed our 1st round pick to Coples.
Round 4 - OLB Ronnell Lewis (Lions - 125th pick)
Too much value here, and our OLBs are really weak. More competition to go with Zach Brown.
Also considered DE Jared Crick very strongly, and pondered ILB James-Michael Johnson and RB Chris Rainey even though we don't need help at those positions.
Round 5 - DE Jonathan Massaquoi (Falcons - 164th pick)
Definitely need help at DE and he looked like good value. Also considered RBs Chris Rainey and Cyrus Gray, and FS Markelle Martin.
Round 6 - SS Charles Mitchell (Falcons - 192nd pick)
Strongly considered FS Markelle Martin, but we need a SS and Mitchell looks promising. Also considered CB Alphonso Dennard.
Round 7 - CB Alphonso Dennard (Patriots - 224th pick)
We need depth at CB and he seemed like a steal. Apparently fell due to some minor legal problems. Debated between him and DE Cam Johnson, as well as WR Junior Hemingway.
Round 7 (obtained by accepting the trade of Jarrad Page, who was still on our roster, for this pick) - WR Junior Hemingway (Chiefs - 238th pick)
Maybe some WR depth and a deep threat. Wanted Cam Johnson, but he went one pick before this. Also debated on FS Antonio Allen and undrafted free agent Ryan Steed.
My ancestors fought cave bears so I could make this post.
