Too early to accurately slot players by round, but screw it. Oakland won't be picking in the first 2 rounds. I'm expecting a 3rd round comp pick, among others. Who are some guys (at any position) who are looking like mid-rounders but could play a significant role in the bigs?

I always fall in love with midrounders, but rarely do they pan out. But here are some of the players I like in that range:

Markelle Martin
Shea McClellin (although I could see him rise up the boards)
Kheeston Randall
Trumaine Johnson
Cyrus Gray
Shaun Prater
Ryan Lindley

and of course... loads of WRs:
Ryan Broyles
Brian Quick
Juron Criner
Greg Childs
Jarius Wright
etc...

Preciate it.

Markelle Martin sounds interesting. Reads like a guy who could play some centerfield for us.

Really like what I'm reading of Kheeston Randall. Putting him and Lamar Houston back on the same line together could be productive.

Trumaine could be a steal after his run-in with the cops. Good call.

Hafta go do some homework on the WRs.

I like CB Shaun Prater from Iowa. Also, DT Kawann Short from Purdue. Both should be 4th round prospects.

Homer Pick Alert:

Dan "Boom" Herron RB Ohio State

I think he has the tools to be a solid NFL RB for a few years.

I really like Frank Alexander and think he's really underrated. Brian Quick is intreaguing as is TY Hilton. I really like Winston Guy Jr. as well.

Knile Davis, Mike Martin, and Boom Herron.

I always like the 3-5 round prospects, probably moreso than early round guys. I feel like the risk is low and the reward is so potentially high from guys in the 85-150 range.

Most of the prospects I like have been mentioned.

CBs- Shaun Prater, Casey Hayward (though he may end up in the 2nd), Leonard Johnson, Robert Golden, Jamell Fleming

LBs- Danny Trevathan, James-Michael Johnson, Nigel Bradham, Tyler Nielson,

S- Antonio Allen, Aaron Henry,

OL- Philip Blake, Kevin Zeitler,

WR- Devier Posey, Chris Owusu, AJ Jenkins, Marvin Jones, Brian Quick, Joe Adams,

DL- Andre Branch, Malik Jackson

I want to throw Brandon Taylor's name out there. I know everyone gets excited talking about Claiborne and Mathieu but Taylor makes his fair share of plays for that defense and really looks the part of an NFL safety. He's instinctive, is solid in coming up to support the run and more than holds his own in coverage. I'm guessing he's like a 3rd/4th Rounder right now but I have a feeling he's going to make some team very happy.

Al Davis is dead, and the stopwatch died with him.


...we hope.

Now you will be trading for 2005 Bengals instead.

We're shooting for a new GM in the offseason and a relieving of duties for Hue-bris Jackson. Fates willing, that'll set things on the right path.

Really??? Mid rounds means rounds 3-5 not picks 3-5. Claiborne doesn't get out of the top ten let alone the first two rounds

Chandler Harnish should garner consideration as a mid rounder. He is having a great senior season. Can't wait to see how he tests out at the combine. I hope he gets a senior bowl invite as well.

I would say a team like Buffalo could target him in the middle rounds - they just signed Fitz to a long term deal. Harnish fits the skillset that Gailey seems to like in his QBs.

Any LSU/Bama defender eligible around that time... MoClay will go early.. is Matheiu a true soph..? Brandon Taylor but his stock his on the rise.. I would like to get Eric Reid or Matheu next year OMGGGGGGGGGGG.

UNC player that will be off the map slightly I think.. Charles Brown CB.

If the Bears don't take a WR in the first (and they won't), I want Marvin McNutt in the mid rounds. I want the Bears to take him quite possibly more than I've ever wanted the Bears to take any player as long as I've been a fan.

Danny Trevathan OLB UK
Hes Listed at 6-1 230 so hes a tad undersized. Can probably only play at WLB in the pros in a 43. Sideline to sidelilne defender, can get into the backfield, solid fundamentally sound tackler. . . I have watched this kid for 3 years and he packs a punch. Struggled the last two years in coverage but has steadily improved since about halfway through last season. Sometimes goes for the big play and over pursues. Three year starter in the SEC and I think he will be starting for someone next year. My prediction. Eagles in the 3rd.

Also, Greg Childs is interesting . . good hands, good size, good route runner. Could very well make a impact immediately in the pros.

True. It actually took me a good half an hour to craft that list...while being distracted by demon children. At that point, I'd forgotten about the 'mid-rounds' portion of the OP. My bad.

I really like mid round receivers in this class. B.J. Cunningham and Joe Adams will be great values. Lavonte David and Travis Lewis are solid WLB prospects. Chris Galippo could make a good thumper. Harrison Smith at safety.

Chris Galippo makes a good nothing. He may be able to coach later on in his career, but he has ZERO chance of being an NFL player. I would be surprised if he cracked under a 5 in the 40.
