NFC West Draft Review
Bored waiting for a game to download so I figured I would do some draft grades
1. James Carpenter, OT, Alabama
Still don't truly understand this pick will probably start at RT but passing on Carimi is simply awful for a game who may have been available at this pick in the 2nd.
3. John Mofitt, OG, Wisconsin
Moved back for an additional 4th and 6th which is solid value but once again took a player who I don't believe was the best available at his position, I personally had Clint Boling and Will Rackey higher & even later round picks like D. Kilgore, K. Williams, S. Schilling & A. Jackson.
4. K.J. Wright, OLB, Miss State
This is a pick I do really like a physically talented player who is a very sound tackler. Probably is only depth/special teamer at this point but could maybe be looked at as a starter down the road.
4. Kris Durham, WR, Georgia
Once again this is not player at the position I would have selected. Guys like Edmond Gates, Tandon Doss, or Niles Paul all seem like better overall WRs. But Carroll did get by last year simply using large WRs and Durham does fit that mold.
5. Richard Sherman, CB, Stanford
Solid value at this pick, Sherman is a great athlete and had great workouts, possibly better suited for a FS role but could also develop into a good corner.
5. Mark LeGree, S, App. State
Another good athlete without a great football IQ Obviously this is what Carroll wants in his players(the athletic part not the low football IQ) should at the very least be a special teams player.
6. Byron Maxwell, CB, Clemson
Not a guy who I thought would get drafted but once again a good athlete. May also have to make the switch to S due to stiff hips.
7. Lazarius Levingston, DE, LSU
Once again a solid athlete but not much else, DE/DT tweener
7. Malcolm Smith, OLB USC
Honestly I have no clue who he is, Carroll does though and he is one of the few USC guys that he has brought in
games done, I'll try to finish the others tomorrow, feel free to do your own grades too
