With Elam, I too think 17 is early and its tougher in the 1st round IMO when there is a compilation of better talent..
If Vacarro is gone at #17 and you cant trade down, I think you take BPA in an area of need. If its a pass rusher, ILB, CB, TE....take the good football player. If its Elam, OK. But lots of guys left like Cyprien, Reid, Swearinger, McDonald in later rounds.
BTW, I am liking RB Jonathan Franklin later in the 3rd if possible. Trade back in the 1st, get elam, Lemonier, and then maybe Franklin and Nico Johnson in the 3rd with an extra pick. Oh yeah!!
I have so many thoughts and/or so many players that I like (in the same round).
Tavon Austin, Matt Elam in R1...
Coery Lemonier, DJ Swearinger in R2...
Gavin Escobar, Ryan Swope, Leon McFadden in R3...
Right now, here is my thinking:
R1 - Kenny Vaccaro
R2 - Corey Lemonier
R3 - Gavin Escobar
R4 - DJ Swearinger*
R5 - Nico Johnson
R6 - Khaled Holmes
R7 - John Madsen
*(I've seenSwearinger rated as high as "25th overall" and as low as R5.)
