There's some small school corners like Asa Jackson that I really like.
Bobby Wagner isn't on my board for the same reason a lot of other players aren't... I don't think he's very good, and I like other linebackers better.
I'm comfortable with where I have Kendall Reyes. He tested extremely well at the combine which helped his stock in my eyes, but he has a tendency to want to play around blocks rather than through them. Once he realizes he's lined up across from a guy who'll battle him tooth and nail, Reyes doesn't always match the challenge. I watched Lucas Nix completely dominate him and shut him out.
Dwight Bentley is also a top 3 round pick on my board, but he's a very small corner. Has some issues in downfield coverage as well. Extremely competitive and plays with tremendous heart. I like Bentley, but I'll take the corners I have ahead of him first.
Demario Davis might be the best 3 down linebacker in this draft behind Luck Kuechly, although I like Davis outside. He's a freak athletically in every aspect, physical, instinctive, wrap up tackler who knows when to really bring something extra without risking a whiffed tackle. Arkansas St. had a tremendous defense and Davis looked to me like the heart and soul of it that everyone else fed off of.
