Donta Hightower LB, Alabama. 6-4 260, 4.78
Position he would play on the defense: strong side linebacker. With Kelvin Sheppard at MLB and Nick Barnett on the Weak side we dont really have anyone on the strong side. He fills this need instantly. Other players I would look at are Jon Martin LT, Courtney Upshaw DE, Melvin Ingram DE, Quinton Coples DL.
Vinny Curry DE, Marshall. 6-3 263 4.74
Position he would play on the defense: right defensive end. This is the guy I've had in my mocks in this slot since day 1. He is relatively under the radar at Marshall but burst onto the national scene in the senior bowl. He would be a big upgrade over whoever is starting for us at RDE. other players I would look at Chase Minnefield CB, Mohammed Sanu WR, Jared Crick DE, Orson Charles TE.
Tommy Streeter WR, Miami (FL). 6-4 215 4.49
Position he would fill on Offense: WR opposite of Stevie Johnson. I never liked Donald Jones as a WR because he is just a special teamer and David Nelson is only valuable in the slot. He would step in immediatly and become what Buddy said we needed. a guy who is open, when hes not open. Other Players I would look at are Brian Quick WR, Brandon Lindsay OLB, Markelle Martin FS, Nick Toon WR.
Josh Norman CB, Coastal-Carolina. 6-1 203 4.53
position he would play on defense: CB opposite Aaron Williams. Big guy for the CB position. He intercepted 3 passes in a shrine game practice. Justin Rogers is much better as a nickel and Drayton Florence just makes penalty after penalty. Other players I would look at are Donnie Fletcher CB, Audie Cole LB, Cam Johnson De.
Emmanual Acho LB, Texas. 6-2 245 4.79
Position he would play on Defense: depth depth depth. would be a Great depth pick and provide more beef to our linebacking core. Other players I would look at are Terrell Manning LB, Ryan Broyles WR, Brock Osweiler QB.
Round 5a (Marshawn Lynch trade)
Chandler Harnish QB, Northernd Illinois. 6-2 220 4.72
position he would play on offense: Backup QB. Tyler Thigpens only highlight of the year was when he got hit in the head with the ball. Harnish would provide a serviceable backup and might even contend for the starting job in the future.
Matt Reynolds OT, BYU. 6-4 305 5.28
Position he would play on Offense: backup OT. With Chris Hairston on the left side and Pears on the right he would provide a nice backup option.
Blake Gideon FS, Texas. 6-0 205 4.64
Position he would play on defense: Backing up Byrd. On the SS side we are set with Wilson and Searcy but the FS position has no depth at all. He would provide a nice fill in for Byrd when he tires. also was a 4 year starter at Texas.
Donte Paige-Moss DE, North Carolina. 6-4 260 4.67
Position he would play on defense: depth depth depth. would provide the key word depth for kelsay and Curry. We now have a scary Dline with Dareus, Willliams, Curry, Kelsay and with Carrington, Edwards, Troup, and Paige-Moss providing a rotation.
Slot WR- Nelson
CB's- Williams/ Norman/Florence
