Pick #012: DT Star Lotulelei, Utah
Pick #042: OT Menelik Watson, Florida State
Pick #054: TE Travis Kelce, Cincinnati
Pick #077: WR Stedman Bailey, West Virginia
Pick #104: S Shamarko Thomas, Syracuse
Pick #106: OG Brian Schwenke, California
Pick #109: RB Johnathan Franklin, UCLA
Pick #146: CB Jordan Poyer, Oregon State
Pick #164: WR Mark Harrison, Rutgers
Pick #166: DE Cornelius Washington, Georgia
Pick #224: OT Xavier Nixon, Florida
Pick #250: QB Peter Lalich, California (PA)

Priority Free Agents: DT Darrington Sentimore, DT Kwame Geathers, WR Sam McGuffie, FB Lonnie Pryor, RB Dennis Johnson, TE Joseph Fauria and CB Nickell Robey.
1. I like some of your picks...esp. late. Franklin is a steal. Washington is probably a workout warrior, but worth a look at 6.
2. I love the trade compared to what you took at 12. Lotulelei does not move me much. Richardson and Williams are going to make more of an impact. And both DT's who were still on the board.
3. Taylor is a much better selection than Kelce at 54. He was thought of higher in many people's mind and plays a more important position. Sims has similar grade to Kelce everywhere I looked and he was taken two rounds later.
4. Watson is an interesting project, but in the end a chancy decision to pencil him as a starter at OT. We would be looking for insurance anyways in the FA market
5. I cannot argue with JI's picks of Taylor and Sims because I was banging the keyboard on this site hoping they would take them.

Overall you have nice draft, but the Fins actual haul is very solid. No complaints.
