Just came upon this. http://www.fieldgulls.com/nfl-draft/201 ... ts-to-vmac


OFFENSE: (9)

WR Russell Shepard - LSU
WR Martel Moore - Northern Illinois
WR Tyrone Goard - Western Kentucky
WR Perez Ashford - Northern Illinois
RB Christine Michael - Texas A&M
RB Jeremy Wright - Louisville
OL Ryan Jensen - Colorado State
FB Kyle Juszczyk - Harvard
TE Michael Williams - Alabama

DEFENSE: (10)

DE Rufus Johnson - Tarleton State
DE Mike Catapano - Princeton
DT Stefan Charles - Regina
DT Michael Brooks - East Carolina
LB Craig Wilkins - Old Dominion
S Cooper Taylor - Richmond
S Duke Williams - Nevada
CB Jeremy Harris - New Mexico State
CB Tyrann Mathieu - LSU
CB Dontra Peters - New Hampshire

SPECIALISTS: (1)

LS Kevin McDermott- UCLA

Couple things stood out to me. First, we looked at a bunch WR's, DL and DB's. Second, we only brought in a single LB and OL. Of the list I only recognize Tyrann Mathieu.

That's pretty interesting right there. I'd love to see us draft 3 DLmen in this draft. We need to develop a young core of DLmen instead of using the patchwork system we've employeed the last 2 years. I'm exicted for Scruggs, Howard, and Irvin from last year. Hopefully we can double up again and infuse some youth and talent along the DL. This is the most underdeveloped part of our team in terms of draft picks bolstering the talent and depth.

Michael Williams from Alabama would be an awesome addition to the team.

Do you have a list of the people we looked at last year?
It'd be interesting to see how many of our picks actually visited us, I'm fairly certain it was a low number and we use this more for picking up UDFAs?

I would love adding these two safeties! They are like Kam and Earl light! :thirishdrinkers:

S Cooper Taylor - Richmond (6'4" 228 lbs., BIG safety with good speed and solid cover skills. Impressive athleticism for his size at the position).
S Duke Williams - Nevada (Extremely fast sideline to sideline. Loves to light people up when he makes contact.)

These guys seem like they were bred to join the Legion of Boom. Both have a nice mix of skills, menace, and viciousness. :thfight7:

Bring them into the fold!!

As long as someone else doesn't get them first :) David Paulson, TE, Oregon ended up in Washington.
