Round 1 - Pick 1 (1): Andrew Luck - QB - Stanford
No explanation needed here
Round 2 - Pick 2 (34): Peter Konz - C - Wisconsin
They say he is the best C in the draft and it would be nice to get a young C in early so he and Luck can work together a lot, get some chemistry down, and be like Manning-Saturday. Walter Football's scouting report compares him to Nick Mangold (yes, please!). Doesn't Wisconsin usually have a good history of O-linemen coming into the league and being successful? One name that immediately comes to mind is Joe Thomas
Former pick: Alshon Jeffery (WR)
Round 3 - Pick 3 (64): Alameda Ta'amu - NT - Washington
Solid NT to be the anchor of our 3-4. Won't do much in terms of pass rushing, but can defend the run well. In Walter Football's scouting report of him, they say he is a poor man's Casey Hampton.
Round 4 - Pick 4 (97): Orson Charles - TE - Georgia
A strong TE with reliable hands and could be a good blocker.
Round 5 - Pick 5 (136): Ryan Steed - CB - Furman
Has potential, but isn't a solid tackler.
Former pick: Coty Sensabaugh (CB)
Round 5 - Pick 6 (170): James-Michael Johnson - ILB - Nevada
Seems like a solid LB. Good tackler, but isn't the best in coverage despite a decent 40 time.
Former pick: Vontaze Burfict (ILB)
Round 6 - Pick 7 (206): Junior Hemingway - WR - Michigan
Based on what NFL.com says about him, his problems (getting jammed, not the greatest route runner) can be fixed with good coaching and with a guy like Wayne helping him. However, Harris was ranked pretty high as a CB and seems like a more talented player.
Former pick: Mike Harris (CB)
That's all they have so far. I will update it once they add the 7th round. What do you guys think? I personally love the selection of Mike Harris, but I don't know if he will last that late.
