Fuller has been climbing the board and you probably could throw a rope around the top three and different teams would find something they like about each. They all rate about the same so their rankings are little more than someone's idea where they fit as far as whose most likely to take who. To me Gilbert has the added attraction of being a top return guy like Patrick Peterson, Dennard is supposed to be a top cover corner (which we don't really need) and Fuller the most physical of the three. They might see him as a FS but he's a little smaller than you'd like for that and once again you have to ask would Emery try one more time to make a FS out of a college CB? If that's the plan then I'd surely wait on a CB and take him later on. Guys like McGill or Stanley Jean-Baptiste have more of the size you'd like in a FS and there's less risk. I'd also suggest that learning the FS position is harder for someone whose never played it as we're learning with Conte. I don't think Fuller is a bad pick but is he the best pick based both on need and BPA and I also think that of you want a Safety then take a Safety not a CB. JHMO Hageman has more upside so he bounces Jernigan from the top 32. Nah, I can't but that. Not on the basis of their comparative college productivity, or lack thereof, and one with a rep as a real high motor guy vs another who has a rep for coasting an not getting the most out his abilities. I realize that Hageman is moving up the boards based on this upside but the road to GM hell is paved with the good intentions of drafting guys based on their upside. Jernigan may be falling but last month he was mocked at #16 to Dallas and this month he's not even a top 32 pick? That's a little severe isn't it? It seems the rationale behind that is nothing more than having the Bears pass on Donald so Dallas takes him when having signed Melton I'd think Hageman or Jernigan would be more there guy. Only Pitt takes Hageman now rather than Nix when Nix is a far better fit for them at NT. Of course this is only v2.0 of what may be at least several more mock drafts from these guys so we may as well be prepared for a few more shifts in drafting strategies around the league. This is a great example of what I don't like about Mocks and why I never do one. They yank one or two players around and then the whole board shifts and gets seriously out of whack. There are guys in this one who weren't even mentioned a month ago. Where did they come from. I'm sorry but the singular signing of Allen does not obviate the need for a 3 tech DT unless Houston is tabbed to play there and from what we've learned so far he doesn't want that and he's not. IMHO he was never a good enough pass rusher to play that RDE spot so he was always a left side guy and I said that right after we got him. If people somehow get the idea that now that we have Allen to play RDE then Young will play LDE and Houston move inside I would say that's wrong. Izzy is the guys most likely to handle swing duty as a LDE/DT and Young most likely to play in the DE rotation and pass rush. Despite Allen's desires I don't believe he'll play 90% of the defensive snaps here like he did in Minny. If Aaron Donald becomes the 3 tech threat I believe he can be I'd have no regrets passing on Hageman no matter what he becomes because he's yet to show he has the drive to become that player whereas Donald has shown it in spades. I like high motor guys which is why I love the Allen pickup and Houston, and Young. They all fit into that slot as does Paea. Julius Peppers is a physical freak who, like Urlacher, can virtually dominate a game all by himself and we've seen him do it. But we've also seen what happens when a physical freak turns off his motor and mails it in. So despite his seeming physical superiority THAT would be my concern with Hageman and I'd rather let that be some other teams problem than mine. I like guys who carry their own fire as opposed to ones you have to keep lit. I suppose Dallas could move Melton to DE and I think the Bears experimented with some of that with him before. He'd probably need to drop a little weight like Houston says he's like to do but I'm sure he could do it. But then what do you have? A top five DT turned into an average DE? It's hard to tell and there's always some risk involved. Seems to me that if there's a team out there who could benefit most from Hageman's versatility and his need for coaching it's Dallas and Marinelli. That's the kind of coach Hageman needs and he could turn him into something special. Look what he was able to do with Melton, Izzy and Wootton. This whole DLine thing fits far better if you send Donald off to the Bears, then Nix to Pitt, and finally Hageman to Dallas. Each team gets the guy who best fits there needs and style of play. Of course things never quite fall into place all this neat do they. This has gone on far too long so I'll just say in closing that if they took Fuller or one of the FS and they were able to get a guy like Quarles in round two or even Jernigan if he fell that far, and I think that's highly unlikely with Jernigan and doubtful with Quarles but that still works as far as meeting higher needs. I'm not fixated on only one way that it has to be but more on the overall plan for the first three round since that's were we're most likely to get starters and front line backups.
