In the event we think about a QB (project for the future, as a back up, or best available)

Ryan Lindley QB San Diego St- 6'6" 240lbs, strong arm, can make every throw
This kid is going to play in the league, I'm sure of it. Haven't seen too much discussion on him but there is some. I'm thinking he'll be a 2nd/3rd round pick by the time the draft rolls around unless he just lights it up this year. Don't think he'll be there around the time we would consider taking a QB though. Too many real needs to address but I think he could sit behind Ben for 4 years and be ready to take over at that point. If he was there in the 5th or 6th I'd love for them to take him.

I'd keep an eye on these guys too:

Bruce Irvin DE West Virginia (NASTY but a bit of a homer pick for me)
Cliff Harris CB Oregon (I know this one is 50/50 whether people like him)

Those are about the only names I'm following that you didn't mention. Also I didn't have Lucas Nix or Juron Criner. Where do those guys go to school so I can keep an eye on them? It is absurd how much college football I watch (I love it) I'm too embarrassed to actually admit out loud how much it is! Not saying that means I know anything, just saying I watch a lot. I don't do my own mock drafts, I don't think I have the ability or patience for it. I have noticed that a lot of the guys I like are on many peoples early mocks and I guess K Train is the Steeler Addict draft guy. I've been pretty impressed with his knowledge on the subject. Your list seems to be fairly consistent/similar to his. I'm always amazed at the people who sit down and work this stuff out. I just take notice of people that impress me from watching.

Kelechi Osemele from Iowa State or David DeCastro from Stanford are the two OG's I like best.......

DeCastro is NASTY!!! I'll be honest Iowa St is about the only team I haven't seen play for quite a while. I almost watched the Iowa/Iowa State game last Saturday but my 3 DVRs were already recording other games and I was watching other ones. I'm not going to lie, Iowa St is probably always gonna be the odd man out in that scenario :lol: but I'll try to catch some of one of their games just to check that dude out!

I only caught some of the Iowa State/Iowa game but I liked what I saw from Osemele......He can play both OG spots and RT......

I'm big on DeCastro also and he protects the next Golden Boy NFL QB Andrew Luck.......I call DeCastro the Anti-Kemoeatu......since he has proper technique and won't make those stupid bonehead penalties.....:lol:

and he was recruited by Jim Harbaugh who ran a typical pro style offense while he was at Stanford so the likelihood of his skill set and talent transfering to the NFL is good.

I thought Jayron Hosley looked good tonight in first half playing for VT. He's a junior but I imagine he will come out after this year.
