Rashaan Evans LB Bama.

Figured I’d save myself some time the next few months and just throw this out there now.

If not Evans who I think will be there at 32 8-) then I can see TE Mark Andrews. I'm thinking Harrison will be gone in the top 20. Safety Allen could be there in RND 2. ;)

Is Harrison the type of S we are looking for?
I'm thinking we need more of a FS. Sean Davis can't cover his shadow so I'm guessing he is your SS.

I like Mark Andrews a lot. Not sure TE is as big a need as we think. Vance and Jesse with some Grimble have been a pleasant surprise this year. Safety & ILB in the first 2 rounds.

Mark Andrews is a fit as well as Roquan Smith. Would love Baker in the second. At S, I prefer to look to Texas' DeShon Elliot. Later, Van Smith or Wisconsin's Nick Nelson as a S (played CB).

Roquan Smith is gone in the top 16. This team puts a premium on the LB position. Not only do they have no depth, they are down a starter as well. Here is need meets availability. I called TJ Watt on January 17th last year. No need to procrastinate like that this year. I’m calling my shot now with Evans now m

Entire Bama D looked pretty good last night. Remember FC mentioned in another thread he wasn't high on the Bama backers this year. I don't watch too many Alabama games due to being unable to stand Saban, so some opinion would be interesting.

I like Smith from UGA as well, but agree from everything I've seen so far that it would take giving up some picks to go up and get him.

I’ll agree with Perch, I think Evans is the pick and I’m 100% fine with that. I said the begin the season I was high on Evans.

We would be very lucky if Evans were available when we pick. The guy is a thumper with some nice athleticism.
He's not a Shazier type, but more like a Ruben Foster type.

I guess my question was, were you high on Evans as a guy playing next to 50, and does that still translate given a very good/great season from a cheap VW and the need to attempt to cover what Shazier added to the team?

Genuinely curious about the fit given the almost 180° change in circumstances.

Not saying he's a first round consideration but Kerryon Johnson would be an interesting prospect to get on board. He declared for the draft skipping his senior season. http://www.al.com/auburnfootball/index. ... nters.html

Draft wire mocked S Marcus Allen in the first with OLB Tremaine Edmunds in the second and ILB Uchenna Nwosu in the third round.

Long way out mocks:

1. Ronnie Harrison S
2. Malik Jefferson ILB
3. Mike Gisecki TE
5. Allen Lazard WR

or

1. Rashan Evans ILB
2. Mark Andrews TE
3. Armani Watts S
5. Allen Lazard WR

not a fan of Malik Jefferson. Slow at diagnosing plays.

Agreed...definitely not a 2nd round talent, IMO.

I think it's a safe bet that they go LB. Not as confident as some that Evans will still be available; if he is, they'll take him most likely. If he's not, I still think they go LB over the other serious upgrade need: safety (both positions). Would like to see a draft without throwaway picks (midgets without moves, long snapper experiments*). That said, difficult to complain too much with the offseason performance by the front office this past year; truly superb when you think of the pieces they selected, or picked up, that are contributing mightily. (*=as side note, I believe that Holba the long snapper they selected has an active job in Jacksonville, our most likely divisional round opponent).

I like him regardless of whether he is playing beside Shazier or Williams. I think its more about he is a talented LB that the Steelers would be lucky to get and I think he fits the scheme very well.

Trade up to get Vita Vea, move to a 4-3. This guy looks like he is unblockable now and has upside - love this kid
