We are targeting a WLB and CB for depth. Based on what has been reported I see the draft as such as far as position and what we need. All profiles provided by http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/rankings/dt.html

2nd round:

Defensive Tackle | Senior | Virginia Tech Jonathan Lewis

Height: 6-1 1/8 | Weight: 309 | 40-Time: 5.05

Official Bio

Strengths:

Has a solid and compact build...Very disruptive and excels at getting into and making plays in the backfield...Explosive, quick and athletic...Has a good burst to close on the ball carrier...Moves well and makes plays laterally...Smart and locates the ball well...Tough player with good strength...Unyielding and has a motor that never quits...Is experienced and durable...Works hard and is a team leader.

Weaknesses:

Doesn't have the height you look for...Has major trouble when he has to go head-to-head against massive offensive lineman...Struggles to hold his ground at the point of attack and is not a great run defender...Really lacks a wide base to anchor...Needs to hit the weight room and strengthen his lower-half...Probably needs to be in the right type of defensive scheme to succeed in the pros.

Notes:

Didn't get a lot of attention but Lewis was one of the best interior defensive linemen in the country...Was very consistent throughout his career...Would fit in best with a team that prefers smaller defensive tackles that can penetrate.

5th round:

Tight End | Senior | Auburn Anthony Mix

Height: 6-4 1/4 | Weight: 235 | 40-Time: 4.51

Official Bio

Strengths:

Has amazing size and a large frame which he knows how to use...Outstanding natural athlete...Very good speed for a guy of his dimensions...Is a big target who can move the chains and be a possession receiver...Does a good job of getting open...Got better each year of his career...Still has some upside and potential.

Weaknesses:

Might need to make a position change and will need to either bulk up to play tight end or slim down to play wide receiver...Will drop too many balls...Needs to become more physical and a much better blocker...Is not a deep or vertical threat...Needs to work harder...Struggles to stay in shape...An underachiever.

Notes:

Played wide receiver in college but may project to tight end or H-Back as a pro...Has some intriguing physical tools and a great combination of size / speed but needs to be motivated...Will likely get looks as a developmental prospect.

Sleepers

6th round:

Chris Gocong

Height: 6-2 1/8 | Weight: 263 | 40-Time: 4.70

Official Bio

Strengths:

Makes a lot of plays in the backfield and simply has a knack for getting to the quarterback...Intense and competitive with a non-stop motor...Smart and a hard worker with top intangibles...Plays with good leverage...Displays good strength and power...Was extremely productive and absolutely dominated at his level.

Weaknesses:

Did not play against elite competition...Doesn't have the size or bulk you look for...Has trouble shedding blocks...Might not have the agility needed to change positions...Just a situational player?...'Tweener who may not have a pro position

Notes:

Won the Buck Buchanan Award as the top defensive player in NCAA Division I-AA football...Had 36.5 sacks over the last two seasons...Played defensive end in college but could move to outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme at the next level.

6th round:

Cletis Gordon

Height: 6-2 | Weight: 195 | 40-Time: 4.52

Official Bio

Strengths:

Has excellent size...Very athletic...Is more quick than fast...Exciting in the open field...Tough and will play through pain...Extremely versatile and is an all-around threat...Has a lot of experience...Tons of special teams value...Has some upside.

Weaknesses:

Did not play against much elite competition...Is not much of a tackler...Lacks elite timed speed...Raw and needs a lot of technique work because he gets by on sheer athleticism...Not very physical...Coverage skills are only average at best.

Notes:

Also played some wide receiver in college...Is probably an even better prospect as a return man than he is as a cornerback...A nice sleeper prospect who could be brought in as a developmental guy in the later rounds...A top return prospect.

7th round:

Offensive Tackle | Senior | Utah St. Donald Penn

Height: 6-4 1/4 | Weight: 317 | 40-Time: 5.25

Official Bio

Strengths:

A tremendous athlete...Good quickness...Moves well and has good feet in pass protection...Solid run blocker who gets a push and some movement...Versatile and could possibly play multiple positions...Experienced and a four-year starter.

Weaknesses:

Did not play against a high level of competition...Does not have outstanding height...Raw and needs a lot of technique work...Struggles a bit with edge speed rushers...Can play with more consistent leverage...May have to change positions.

Notes:

His father played college basketball and Donald was also a standout on the hardwood in high school...Could project to either tackle or guard...Made a name for himself at the Hula Bowl and improved his stock...Interesting sleeper prospect.
