    Red-Flag Prospects Worth the Gamble

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2011758-2014-nfl-draft-red-flag-prospects-worth-the-gamble/page/2

    I'd be for a late round roll of the dice on OT Matt Patchan

    I would consider rolling the dice on Jonathan Dowling of Western Kentucky and moving him to corner.

    Tight end A.C. Leonard is well worth the gamble. As is OLB Jonathan Newsome.

    Coke Lyerla may not be, though. There's only so much appetite I have for risk. With him I'd ultimately be more afraid if he DOES succeed, than if he doesn't.

    I'm on board with Matt Patchan. I think his injures are behind him, and the talent is obvious. IMHO though the NFL will have a good idea whether they should be concerned with injuries with him or not, and if not he may get drafted significantly earlier than current projections. He really looked good this past year at BC.

    Antone Exum, J.Hurst, S. Henderson, Marion Grice, M.Huff FS and Jeremy Hill if he drops to 3rd
    Identify the 4 positions of strength in the draft, then double up on each........ if possible


    Tailor Free Agency accordingly, so that your need is these 4 strengths


    2014 draft - RB - WR - OT - OG


    1-Carlos Hyde RB Ohio St.
    2-Marcus Martin OG/C USC
    3-Donte Moncrief WR Mississippi
    4-David Yankey OG Stanford
    5-Seantrel Henderson OT Miami
    6-Laurent Duvernay-Tardif OT McGill
    7-Jeff Janis WR Saginaw Valley St.

    The first player I thought of was Jeremy Hill. He fits exactly what Miami needs at running back and may actually be the most talented back in the draft -- I've read a comparison to Steven Jackson. Have to really look at him and get some more details on his character concerns.

    What's the red flag with Grice?

    Quick ??? to those who really follow these guys

    I'm pretty high on Nebraska guard Spencer Long, but I seem to be alone in that boat. Prior to his knee injury I saw a pre-season All-America, who was strong and athletic. I went back and re-watched the Nebraska vs Illinois and UCLA games. Prior to the injury I think he would have been a second or third round pick. His recovery seems to be going well, seeing that he's scheduled to run for scouts in two weeks.

    My question is what are a lot of people seeing wrong with him that I'm not.
