we might be picking 12-18, to high for Patterson, but he wont be there for our second pick, if a good Pass rusher is not there there are other options in the second

It does seem like most of the best fits for us are in the back third of the 1st and front half of the 2nd. Hunter, Patterson, Eifert, Ertz, Rhodes, etc. I'm sure things will change after the combine. There's always workout warriors that shoot up the charts, so maybe some of our guys will be pushed back. I expect to get high quality players with our 1st and both 2nd's as well as good contributors with both of our thirds.
I think Stedman Bailey is the top WR in my position grouping at the moment, anyway.
Personally I would take a CB round one and be delighted to pick up Roberts woods if he was there in round two.
The fact that coming out of the 2nd round with Stedman Bailey and Joseph Fauria is a legitimate possibility, is pretty scary. Looks too good to be true, and therefore probably is. By draft day I suspect either Stedman doesn't look to be available at our #44-47 overall pick, and/or Fauria doesn't look to be available at our #55-60 overall pick.
To add that much scoring potential in the 2nd round would be fantastic. They're both extremely difficult to nigh on impossible to keep out of the end zone.
I think the more the scouts digest the film on Stedman Bailey the more they're going to come away impressed. Remember he's a junior so it's not all that surprising that we're not hearing much from the teams about Bailey. The ground level scouts will be pretty familiar but the higher ups won't start digesting his film until they get word he's coming out, which they've now gotten. Those higher ups are usually the ones with the loose lips that talk to the media a little more.
When they look, they're going to see that even back in 2010 as a mere freshman he was out there beating David Amerson and Tyrann Mathieu for touchdowns. They'll see that as a sophomore he beat Morris Claiborne on 7 of the 8 throws, including a touchdown. They'll see tape of Bailey torching the likes of Aaron Colvin, Tharold Simon, Quandre Diggs, Carrington Byndom, Adrian Bushell and Jason Verrett...all decent corner prospects. They'll see him beating guys like Kevyn Scott, Antwuan Reed, Quenton Washington, Brodrick Brown and Camerron Cheatham, all of whom either have already gotten looks from the NFL or will. They'll see him stiff-arm mid round safety prospect Jarred Holley into the turf en route to a touchdown. They'll see him beat mid round safety prospect Rashard Hall over the middle, or be ridiculously brutal and physical blocking Mo Claiborne on run plays.
Once they start to digest not just the obvious skill set but how he's not been intimidated by any coverage player no matter how good he is...that's when I think you'll start hearing more about Stedman Bailey rising up the boards.
Stedman Bailey has a good chance to make it to the 3rd imo but I like him and hopkins who I doubt leaves the 2nd.
