This is a mixed-bag draft with potential to either restock the team for years to come or provide practice squads around the league with some warm bodies. Malcom Brown is going to be a massive space-eater and double-team magnet on the defense and Tre' Jackson is a good value pick in the 4th, but there's enough questions with the draft placement of Jordan Richards and Geneo Grissom to make this a wait-and-see kind of haul.
