If the Rams hadn't traded up to #1 and the draft broke like this, I would have taken:
1.15 - Paxton Lynch
#43 - Sterling Shepard
#45 - Tyler Boyd*
Maybe DE Jonathan Bullard if not taken #44, I was definitely taking Shepard #43, even if Michael Thomas was there, long gone and taken 2.1 here, I'm not as well versed on CBs that might have been avail. at #45, but possible starter E.J. Gaines opposite TruJo looking strong in off-season drills, they added TEN CB Sensabaugh and 2014 high second rounder Joyner played much better at nickel CB in 2015 - and I just really, really, really like Boyd and Shepard, two of my favorite prospects in the class of '16 at any position to out-produce their pedigree. After looking at the draft board again, would have taken CB Mackensie Alexander if he lasted to #45 (not happening), and in retrospect, would have had to think HARD about S Karl Joseph at #45, probably would have done that to diversify after starting offense heavy with QB and WR. I'm just not sure how much Fisher and Williams value the position, though, departing FS McLeod was a 2012 UFA.
* Adding Boyd to Austin in the LA WR stable would give them two converted prep RBs with the most TDs in Pennsylvania (117, actually tied) and Maryland (123) state history, respectively - Austin's 8,000+ career rushing yards 2,000 more than #2, former NFL RB Ben Tate.
