JENKINS UPDATE AND MY TAKE...
LATEST ON KRIS JENKINS.
Regardless of source. asking price must drop
KRIS JENKINS: I've checked with two very reliable sources being told that Carolina is looking for two draft picks in return for Jenkins.
One source indicated the Panthers wanted a first-round and fourth-round pick; the other sources intimated the Panthers would settle for a second-round and third-round pick. either way, the asking price is too much considering all factors.
Several teams are offering a pick and veteran player at this point.
IRONIC: I'm told that of Joe Staley is off the board, the Kansas City Chiefs will pick Ted Ginn, Jr.
KTRS DRAFT COVERAGE: We will have draft updates throughout the day on KTRS. We'll have updates during the Cardinals baseball game with a recap beginning at 8:00 p.m. this evening on The Big 550 (KTRS).
RANKING THE POSSIBILITIES.
Assuming the Rams select with current picks, here is how I would rate the potential talent available in the first three rounds:
Ideal Pick: LB Patrick Willis or DT Amobi Okoye
Worst Pick: DT/DE Adam Carriker or DT Alan Branch
Tough Call: OG/OT Levi Brown. a few mock draft have Brown slipping, if he is there, Brown rates with Willis or Okoye.
Preferred Order: Assuming that Willis and Brown are off the board, here is how I rate the possibilities. 1. Okoye; 2. WR Ted Ginn, Jr.; 3. CB Darrelle Revis; 4. CB Aaron Ross; 5. DE Jammal Anderson.
Ideal Pick: C Ryan Kalil or RB/FB Brian Leonard
Tough Call: OG/OT Justin Blalock. it's unlikely however not impossible he could be on the board.
Preferred Order: 1. Leonard; 2. Kalil; 3. Tank Tyler, NCST; 4. WR Sidney Rice; 5. CB Marcus McCauley; 6. OG/OT Arron Sears.
Ideal Pick: LB Brandon Siler or DE LaMarr Woodley
Tough Call: QB John Beck. chuckle if you must however Beck is a mature and balanced passer that will be a factor in this league. He could be groomed as the replacement for Bulger (though he is an older prospect).
Preferred Order: 1. Siler; 2. Woodley; 3. CB Josh Wilson; 4. WR David Clowney; 5. CB Daymeion Hughes; 6. RB Brandon Jackson; 7. CB Tanard Jackson; 8. DT Paul Soliai; 9. S Aaron Rouse; 10. DE Quentin Moses; 11. DB Eric Weddle; 12. RB Lorenzo Booker; 13. CB Eric Wright; 14. DE Tim Crowder; 15. C Samson Satele.
