#53 Overall to #57

By PFC Draft Writer David Willemssen @DavidWillemssen

#53 Overall the Cincinnati Bengals select DE/DT Margus Hunt SMU

Hunt adds to a solid defense for the Bengals. Hunt is a huge player at 6’8 275 lbs. He is a track star who is very quick. For 277 lbs he has great straight line speed and is explosive off the snap. He is long and is known for blocking field goals 17 in his career. He is a raw player who has tremendous strength of 38 reps. He will need to use that strength better in his game.

#54 overall the Miami Dolphins select CB Jamar Taylor Boise State.

Taylor does not fit the typical Dolphin DB in size as he’s only 5’10. He is a quick footed corner who flips his hips well to run with receivers. He is not going to be physical with receivers which has been Miami’s way of playing for some years. The Dolphins with losing Sean Smith were in need of a corner.

#55 overall the San Francisco 49ers trade up with the Green Bay Packers as they receive number 61 overall and a 6th round. The 49ers select TE Vance McDonald Rice

McDonald is a receiver that can play out in the slot and be used in a various amount of ways. He can have good hands, but really double catches the ball a lot.

#56 overall the Baltimore Ravens trade up with the Seattle Seahawks as they receiver number 62 a 5th and a 6th round pick. The Ravens select LB Arthur Brown Kansas State

Brown is an undersized inside line blocker who plays quickly. He plays well in coverage well. He takes some horrible angles in pursuit and takes him out of the play routinely. Brown’s strength is his coverage skills. We will see him gobbled up by blockers frequently and once engaged he has a hard time disengaging.

#57 overall the Houston Texans select S DJ Swearinger South Carolina.

Swearinger is a huge hitter who plays very aggressively. He can be picked on due to his aggressiveness and will receiver flags. He is on of the better tackling safetys in this year’s draft. He plays close to the line of scrimmage and attacks with purpose. Learning from the great Ed Reed will be huge for his development of his covering skills.
