We went with our best player available in the first round. The bad news? He may not exactly fit into one of the gaping holes we’ve discussed heading up to this draft. The good news? He’s darned good, might sort of fit into one of those holes, and we added pick #40 in the process.
By the close of business today, The Bottlenose would like:
S Nate Allen, Morgan Burnett, or Taylor Mays.
OLB/DE Ricky Sapp, Navorro Bowman, Sergio Kindle (only in the 3rd though, if he falls), Everson Griffin, Eric Norwood, or Jermaine Cunningham.
The Bottlenose would also accept NT Terrence Cody, Linval Joseph, Cam Thomas, or Torell Troup. But after grabbing Odrick (who has played a bit of NT, and can bulk up to 315lbs) I think we’ll wait ’til a bit later for nose tackle help (Jeff Owens, Kade Weston, and the like).
Draft on, you majestic, sea-borne mammals!
