Possible Steals in the Middle Rounds...

I'm not doing another mock draft but I did have a few thoughts about who we could get in the middle rounds of this years draft. First of all, I am on the side of the fence that thinks we should take Jordan with our first pick and probably defense with the first pick in the second round. Two players that I would love to get in the 3rd and fourth rounds are E.J. Manuel and Marcus Lattimore. Most likely, even though early on he was projected as a third rounder, I doubt if Manuel is still around for our pick. However, most projections have Lattimore projected somewhere in the 4th round, obviously because of his nasty injury. A definite first rounder before he got hurt, Lattimore's recovery prognosis is very bright. Although he tore 3 ligaments in his knee, he suffered no nerve damage. Nerve damage affects the foot and ankle and the ability to push off and cut. Willis McGahee suffered the same injury and went on to have a long and successful career with no further problems. With a healthy MJD hopefully, Lattimore could take the time needed to fully recover. I just think the chance of getting potentially the best RB in this years draft with the first pick in the 4th round is worth the chance.
