    Why do you like Floyd? He seems like the MOST over-rated in the entire top 10. Also, I think Rhodes at #10 is too high.

    At #10, I'm most comfortable with (in order):

    1. Warmack
    2. Mingo
    3. Milliner
    4. Star

    I'll be super bummed if we wind up with Floyd. I see little to NO upside with him, he is over-rated and we don't need another run-stopper. (We need a pass rusher.)

    Floyd is the best pass rushing DT in the draft, very disruptive and very fast for his position. He's compared to a Geno Atkins so he's not an overrated run stopper. He actually needs to improve a bit in that category. He would be the kind of DT we're missing, someone that can actually get to the QB while not killing us in other fields of his game.

    I don't want to go OG, we can get a starter in the 2nd or 3rd and it's not like we need the top guy anyway with our OL. Rhodes can go in the top 15, so 10 is not too high for possibly the best CB in this class in a few years. Milliner is a bigger risk imo.

    Unless one of the big three OT's fall, it'll be a CB or DJ Fluker (book it). Only other possible exception is if Shariff is there.

    Fluker will likely be the pick.

    "Has great initial quickness but does not appear to have the sustained quickness to translate into a consistent interior pass rush threat -- at least not against today's increasingly mobile dual-threat passers."

    I just don't like what I've seen in Floyd and I don't like what I'm reading.

    1. Star
    2. Floyd
    3./4. Rhodes/Milliner

    Ansah would be #2 on my board but I excluded him because I think there's only about a 3% chance he actually makes it to 10. Star is hands down the guy I want. But I'd be more than happy with Floyd. And I think one of them will be there when we pick.

    I keep going back and forth on Rhodes and Milliner. I'll just trust the FO's judgment if they choose one over the other. Milliner's injuries are concerning. But I doubt we'd draft him if the FO thinks it's anything worth worrying about.

    hmm that's the only scouting report where I've seen something that negative when talking about his pass rush abilities, most just cite his technique. Oh well, from the UF games I saw last year I still think he's going to be a very disruptive pass rusher and can be a very good pass rusher.

    I famously predicted we would take Locker at 8 a few years ago.
    We dont really need a DT in the first and the CB class is very even.I dont see a big difference between the top 10 or so guys.

    This time I'm moving all in on................................Mingo

    Mingo is this year's Melvin Ingram... and I said Ingram would be a bust. I'll say the same for Mingo.

    Still too early to label Ingram a bust, but I heard nothing about him all year.
