Run these every year countless times on Fanspeak, but never posted results before.  Pretty happy with this one.  I used Walter's rankings and Fanspeaks team needs for 7rds.

Rd 1: TJ Watt OLB WI--way too much upside to pass him up, not just a homer pick.  He's only going to get better with his limited time on DEF.
Rd 2: Carl Lawson OLB Auburn---double dipping, Lawson will set the edge ala Perry/Peppers.  Anticipate Clay playing inside and out, so Lawson gives depth and solid rotation to keep fresh legs at OLB
Rd 3: Cooper Krupp WR---Eastern Washington--- good size, great route runner.  Added depth and prepping for the future w/ aging Jordy, big money on Cobb, and Adams looking to get paid.
Rd 4: Ethan Pocic-OL LSU-backs up every position on OL, great size, intelligent, doubt he falls this far
Rd 5: Samaje Perine-RB Oklahoma, the thunder to Montgomery's lightning.  Powerful back, falls forward
Rd 5: Damontae Kazee CB SDSU-- ball hawk, smooth athlete, needs to add muscle
Rd 6: Howard Wilson CB HOU--- tall, willing tackler, needs NFL strength
Rd 7: Ejuan Price--OLB PITT---pass rusher , special teams contributor, upside if he can stay healthy.

I think Rollins & Randall bounce back this year and getting a better pass rush will improve DB play.  Would liked to have added a pick for Def line, but not the way it worked out.  Like Pocic, but think we likely have Langs replacement on the roster already--Kyle Murphy, so may look at swapping that one out.

I think some of these guys will go earlier than projected, but it's all a guess until TH when the talking heads get proven wrong in their predictions.  Love this time of year!!!!
