Default Jarvis Jones, Manti Te'o, Aaron Dobson...

R1 OLB Jarvis Jones
R2 ILB Manti Te'o
R3 WR Aaron Dobson
R4 S Tony Jefferson
R5 RB Stepfan Taylor

http://walterfootball.com/draft2013.php

I can't really argue with the first three rounds, because the first two are value (like Te'o or not, at 47, it is a great value). And Dobson is a small-school phenom w/ "question marks" but worthy of taking a risk on in R3, just like Brandon Marshall or Emmanual Sanders (or Terrell Owens).

Jefferson is eh. I'd prefer a different safety: Shawn Williams or DJ Swearinger. Or, even Leon McFadden ("if" Keenan Lewis leaves via free agency). And, Marcus Lattimore in R4 seems perfect (followed by the aforementioned Williams).

wow, if we got those first two we'd be set at LB. I wouldn't be too happy with the RB in the 5th

I'm with you in terms of Te'o being great value in the second round, but that has to be best case scenario. I don't see him getting by teams like the Bengals, Jets or Lions in the second round and ultimately fall to us. Besides, I think there are better Linebackers in this draft.

I like Jones.

I'm with you on Williams / Swearinger, but this brings us back to the original point we were discussing a few months back - Swearinger is a second round pick. If we want him, we're going to have to take him at 48. I can see Williams being there in the third round, but he's gone by the fourth. There's depth at Safety, but that depth only goes so far. If we want one of the guys you mentioned, a second or third (maybe both if we're set on getting chemistry between two young guys) have to be spent on a Safety. The problem that sticks out to me is we can't grab Lattimore in the third round at that point, so someone like Rambo in the fourth would allow us to take Marcus. But, we haven't taken a WR yet which could be a problem. In that scenario, Escobar is also gone.

The more I look at it, the happier I am I don't have to make these kind of decisions.

Te'o in the 2nd round would be very good value but I dont know if the FO would love all the media attention the team would get...

I don't think the Steelers will draft Te'o... they don't like all the media attention... Jones could be a great pick, but I think they might go with NT or WR...

Won't go NT as they kept Ta'amu. They wouldn't have gone through his off field issues if they didn't think they had a player in him. Steve McLendon is also a monster.

Welcome to the board, by the way.

Ta'amu wasn't release in mid december?

McLendon is a monster, true but I don't know if he has the endurance of Hampton...

And thanks for the welcome!

There is actually less than a 0% chance Te'o will make it past Baltimore at 32. But I would be ECSTATIC to land him in the second. I still think he'd be worth picking at 17 if the premier pass rushers and Vacarro are gone.
