Top 5 First Round Steals (Jets are one of them!)
1 - Lions - Nick Fairley - Obviously no one is touching the Fairley steal. The Lions just pulled off what the Jaguars pulled off a decade ago. They've paired to epic talents inside at DT. This one could be a historic steal in the draft.
2 - Giants - Prince Amukamara - 2nd best CB in the draft that's gotten Terrence Newman comparisons. Probably pissed that he got passed over like that, and is going to do extremely well behind the Giant pass rushers.
3 - Rams - Robert Quinn - The 2nd best pass rusher in the draft. The Rams are slowly but surely putting together a front 7 that could go heavy into the Spags play book. They'll have Long, Little, and Quinn in a DE rotation next year. Long will probably get the Justin Tuck role.
4 - Bears - Gabe Carimi - One of the teams with one of the most obvious needs in the draft, and they get a top tier player to fill that need. Carimi's going to be a LT in Chicago, and a damn good one. He brings size and power to an OL whose last first round pick was undersized and played with too much finesse.
5 - Jets - Muhammad Wilkerson - After Phil Taylor, no 3-4 DL prospect did more for themselves this offseason. He's one of the younger players in this round, and his athleticism and frame offer alot of upside. Should be a Day 1 starter.
Thoughts? Should Gabbert be here? I thought Sherrod to the Packers was sweet, and the Steelers picked up an Aaron Smith clone in Heyward.
