1. Quinton Coples DE North Carolina - He impressed me at the senior bowl, and his stock is definitely rising, and I believe it will continue to rise, despite him being inconsistent during his 2011 season. I feel likes he's going to be a Justin Smith(49ers) type of DE during his whole career. We all know he's not an elite pass rusher, he's solid, and stout against the run. With a couple of seasons with Joe Cullen he will probably be a good pass rusher. He won't be that guy that'll get over 10 sacks a season, he'll be like Justin Smith, and get about 6-9 sacks a season. Hopefully we would have already signed a top defensive end free agent, like Cliff Avril, Robert Mathis, or Mario Williams. Because Coples with any of these guys across from him, will make a great defensive line, and we'll probably get about 18-20 sacks just from our starting ends.
2. Stephon Gilmore CB South Carolina - Some think he's the next Charles Woodson. This pick was going to be Brandon Boykin from Georgia, but his size turns me away. Boykin is excellent in coverage, but can't press at all. Gilmore has great size, at 6'1" 190 lbs, he's great in man coverage, and natural in zone. He has great instincts and is a smart guy(SEC all-academic). He's also a good tackler, but he lacks elite speed, as he has decent speed. He supposedly clocks in around 4.5, but has supposedly run in the late 4.4s. The combine will be a big day for him, and if he runs anything under 4.45 his stock will definitely hop into the 1st round. Line him up across from Derek Cox, and we have a pretty good set of corners. Coples and Gilmore pretty much solidify this defense for the long run.
3. Brian Quick WR Appalachian State - He disappointed me this week, and he measured in at 6' 31/2". I thought he was 6'5"...He's a good route runner, with pretty good hands. He has long arms, and made some pretty nice catches in practice this week. I think the Jags will get lucky, and he'll slide out of the 2nd. Though if he runs anything faster then a 4.45 in the 40, he's going to be a 2nd round pick for sure. Looks a lot like Brandon Marshall.
4. BJ Coleman QB Tennessee-Chattanooga - A quarterback? Yes a quaterback. If you watched the east-west shrine game, and some of the practices. He was definitely the top quarterback there by far. During the game he completed 10/15 for 170 yards and a touchdown. With Greg Olson, Coleman can be developed into a good backup QB, and maybe even be a solid starter on some other team, if he ever leaves here. He some of the tools. He has a great arm, has the intangibles, has good accuracy(struggles with deep accuracy though), he has good mechanics. He just needs to fix his footwork, and get more used to taking snaps under center.
5. Rhett Ellison TE Southern California - This isn't because we share our first name. Rhett is an intriguing prospect. He has a good frame at 6'5" 250 lbs. He's a solid receiving tight end, and a solid blocker. He can do both, which makes him a better option than Zach Potter who, is good at blocking, but really shouldn't be running routes. Rhett is good at using his body to shield off defenders, and has good hands. He's a good route runner, and can block well in space. Not fast at all, as he runs his 40 anywhere between 4.68 and 4.85. He's also pretty versatile, as he can play fullback as well, and contributes on special teams. CBSSports compares him to Joel Dreessen of the Houston Texans.
6. Dwight Bentley CB UL Lafayette - A late round guy, who could definitely be a nickel in time. But we have our nickel, so he's just a depth pick, he really impressed at the east-west shrine game, after only being there due to an injury, and Bentley being the replacement. He's pretty fast, he's quick, has good footwork, and he's good in coverage. Small though at 5'10" 180 lbs.
