1) Indy - QB Andrew Luck
2) STL (Speculation has it that this pick is up for trade; bottom line, its for the services of RG3) - QB RG3
3) Minn - LT Matt Kalil (hands down)
4) Clev - (Traded or not, the pick is in) - CB Claiborne or RB Richardson
5) TB- Claiborne/Richardson/Blackmon
6) Wash - (Also a team in the RG3 mix, if this pick is traded & STL picks here.. pick is in) - WR Justin Blackmon
This makes for an interesting scenario:
7) JAX - (the WR FA's are slowly fading, so we'll have to wait for this one, reason below:
The Jags have serious needs at 3-4 positions (WR, DE, CB, RT), so it really all depends on what Gene Smith has up his sleeves. There is lots of talent in the draft, at certain positions anyway. If we try to trade back & fail for whatever reason, while ALL the above talent is off the board on the exception of the pass rushers (Coples, Ingram, Upshaw), what else can we do?? Right now via free agency, it seems like WR Colston is one of very few top tier receiver's who have years in their tank to contribute right away for years, so he will be the hottest receiver in FA & lets face it, the Jags "may" lose out on Colston's services to another team. If that were to happen, I say trade this pick to an aging Pittsburgh team (defensively), for WR Mike Wallace in return. It makes a lot more sense than to risk it on a pass rusher in Coples who has "hit or miss" written all over him, or even a corner in Dre Kirkpatrick who just got caught with possession of marijuana, right before the combine? Wallace can secure the number 1 spot granted he's only a couple years older than any of the WR's in this draft, at age 25.
We can still go DE in the second or even late first, by the mysterious ways Gene Smith loves to move around!!
