There's a lot of smoke and mirrors going on, but you can start to piece together what Caldwell is doing. We are blowing smoke to gain interest in Geno to bait someone in to trading up for him. Thumbs up for that part, we need the picks. We are eating the cost from cutting our fat so that next year and the year after we are free and clear to make big name free agent deals to put the cherry on top. Thumbs up again. From what I put together from our draft interests looks like this.
First round - Dion Jordan, if we miss out on Jordan from the trade down then Datone Jones.
Second to Third - Depending on the trades we get we have a number of prospects we are looking at. Terron Armstead, Jonathon Banks, Ryan Swope, EJ Manuel, Travis Kelce, and Christine Michael are all projected through here.
Fourth Round - Matt Scott is the only one so far for the fourth that we have for a visit. If we draft EJ Manuel then Matt Scott is out I'm afraid. There is Ryan Griffin from Tulane that we have on the list that could be the fourth QB that we bring in to camp like Caldwell wants. I don't see us signing both Manuel and Scott with draft picks.
Everything else so far is projected UDFA's which is good with me too. Some of them look pretty promising and could be great depth at the least. One guy that I want to add to that list and would love to see us pick up is Jajuan Hartley from Middle Tennessee.
