Obviously, the grade is nice, but the best part is seeing Sample being viewed as our best pick when it certainly was viewed as a reach by some.  Needed secondary help/depth, and hopefully, we can coach him up to become a solid player in the back end.


Swartz as the best value is not surprising, seeing as he was mocked in the first early in the pre-draft process and went in the 5th round.  His stock dropped, but there is talent there.  He'll be a swing tackle for us, but can ideally mature behind Mario Hill and develop into a starter.


And then D.J. Chavis, as the pick with the highest potential is saying something when we got Barfield at #4.  That does not worry me about Barfield one bit, but really has me excited to see Chavis put that powder blue on.

Not too bad considering we didn't have a 1st and issues we had


If Pryor and Hall hit our front 7 is going to be fantastic for years to come
