Say what you will of Joeckel, but Hopkins is a legit threat. Almost every player drafted has stud starter upside: Hopkins, Short, Nico, Moore, Lester...
Joeckel solidifies the LT at potentially an elite level. Hopkins gives the WR corps more lethality (new word?).
Kawann Short provides insurance for Tyson Jackson, Moore for Dennis Johnson, and both Moore and Buchanan for Hali.
Lester is a future starter at strong safety in a season or two. Nico's a day one starter.
If half those players develop well, that's a very powerful draft.
