Top Five :

5. Kansas City – Okung
I’m Buying – Maurkice Pouncey (OL / Florida / No. 24)
While Pouncey is another of a handful of prospects I consider surefire “safe” picks in this draft, many mocks have him going somewhere in the second round. But that’s the nature of the NFL when even a player’s two positions, Guard and Center, aren’t usually considered with a high pick—regardless of the talent level.
I’m Selling – Rodger Saffold (OT / Indiana / No. 31)
The former Hoosiers lineman is a pretty good prospect but he was no more than a third, even fourth-round, pick until the combine. Saffold’s production in Indianapolis caught teams’ attention—but I think he’s a late second-round pick at best.
In His Own Words – Joe Haden (CB / Florida / No. 10)
“Safety may be more of a need, but with Joe Haden still on the board, he is too good to pass up. Haden's biggest red flag is his 40 time, but on tape he has shown to play very fast and cover some of the best receivers in college football. Starting CB Rashean Mathis is 29 years old. The Jags do have promising cornerback Derek Cox, and with Haden would create a solid duo for many years to come.”
