The list of potential draftees goes on and on including defensive tackles Sheldon Richardson and Sylvester Williams, to Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker.
There is even some speculation that Jerry might be blinded by the lights once again and go for a flashy name such as Tavon Austin. That’s not to say that Austin wouldn’t be a welcome commodity, but it’s no secret there are much more pressing needs elsewhere.
