I also love the idea of taking Greg Jones in the 2nd, or 3rd if we get another pick. The guy plays like a poor man's Patrick Willis, but if Willis is a 10 the guy plays like an 8, and has tremendous upside. I also LOVE Casey Matthews, he may not be his brother, but he has the same motor and he would be great on the inside of our 3-4. I am surprised the Skins haven't been looking into D-Lineman, but there are still three days left. I will update as updates come in! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
