I Like a lot of the names on the List. Kyle Van Noy is the guy I hope Bill moves Heaven and Earth to get. He can rush the passer extremely well and also looks fluid dropping in coverage. He is absolutely my favorite player in the draft.
My next favorite guy whom you dont have on your list is Melvin Gordon RB Wisconsin. He runs like Jamal Charles from KC and is an even better player than Charles was in College. Home Run Threat who can run between the tackles and also bounce it outside. Needs some work in pass protection but his upside is so Sky High he merits a First Round Selection regardless.
Eric Ebron in the First and Austin Seferian Jenkins in the second would also be great picks. Both are Instant Mismatches albeit in different ways. Wondering why you dont have any of them in your List.
Lastly, Im not high on any DT's in the first or second rounds. Rookie DT's usually dont have an impact early on. I would rather go Free Agency and target a guy like Paul Soliai or Randy Starks who are both proven commodities.

I do get the future superstar vibe from Van Noy as well... the kinda kid that you look back on 5 years from now and say, why the heck did they pass on him? Then again he may be gone before they select.
Gordon is a very good player, but he's also prob a Top 50 kid and I don't see BB targeting a back that high.
Ebron should be a Top 15-20 pick so I left him off the board for that reason... same reason's that I didn't include Nix III and Tuitt, etc. I think Trent Murphy could eventually be out of range as well.
ASJ has the site and ability that you look for in a TE, but has off the field questions... in hindsight, he's prob a kid that I should still have on my board as someone to track up to draft day.
As far as Rd 1 goes... ND's Zack Martin is a kid that would prob generate groans from Patriots Nation as a boring pick, but he's as solid and consistent a player as there is in this class and would be an immediate upgrade to the OL.
Can't say I'm super high on any of the DT's on my board at this point.
I agree about Zack Martin. If they stand pat, he is most likely the pick at the end of round one. However if they opted to move up then Van Noy is the guy. I really dont see him lasting past 20. I would be ok with Martin, followed by a trade up in the second for either Jace Amaro, Austin Seferian Jenkins or Melvin Gordon. But man oh man, I really want Van Noy :)
