We've also got Steltz, McCray, Martin and Jennings in the mix at Safety as well. None of the UDFA they list is a DB so I doubt they feel there are players out there who are any better than those we already have on the roster although if a vet S is cut elsewhere who seems to be an upgrade I wouldn't but it past them to pick him up. The way the picks fell forced Emery into a Plan B approach but I feel he did as well with it as he could. So far I don't see one wasted pick and at least 6 of the 8 picks should make the team and maybe all 8 if we count the PS. Most of all he covered the defensive needs well and added a couple of productive college players as prospects for backups at RB and QB. I still give it a B grade because a lot depends on how well the risks he took on Ferguson and Sutton pay off and although Fuller was a good pick he still wasn't Aaron Donald. It was a tough break losing him just one pick earlier. The real bargains in this draft may be the guys he took in the middle rounds. Sutton may or may not ever be as good a pro as Donald but he was the right guy to take once Donald was no longer a possibility. Sutton was his Plan B at DT just as Fuller was his Plan B in one if Donald was taken. Carey was a good pick at RB because he has a running style that's different than Forte's an compliments it well plus he can catch and block and that's not an easy package to find. The smartest pick though may be Vereen. This kid has the makings of a real "find" that late in the draft. I believe that if he'd spent his entire year at Safety rather than being shifted to CB like he was throughout his college career that he may well have been taken much higher. I really don't see all that much difference between him and the 2nd round ranked guys who ended up going in one.
