4. Justin Ellis, NT <--- another player who will be a steal IMO
4. Robert Herron, WR(T.Y Hilton 2.0?)
5. De'Anthony Thomas, RB
6. Aaron Colvin, CB

I like this, but like we talked about, I like Cody Hoffman instead of Herron. I think Hoffman is going to run a slow 40, but he is that 6'4" physical receiver with good hands we could use.

That's not too shabby, but my point was: four DBs & a NT. so, how about something like this:

R1: CB Dennard
R2: FS Bucannon
R3: CB Watkins
R4: NT Carrethers
R5: CB Benwikere
I'm not sold on 4 db's, as I think our OLB depth is still thin, but could also see something like this:

R1: Dennard CB
R2: Van Noy OLB
R3: Exum S
R4: Ellis NT
R4 (comp) Hoffman WR

If his stock rises I doubt he'll be there for our 3rd round pick but Imo would be a reach with our 2nd pick. It'll be interesting to how he performs in the senior bowl tomorrow
He has looked stiff in drills and practice at the Senior Bowl. Doesn't look like he is picking up their instruction that quickly. I don't think his stock is going to rise, unless he puts on a show at his pro day.
