6th round: WR/PR Ace Sanders

Day one punt returner, Sanders would provide a consistent/healthy/not Tate option to the punt returner position.  He is ultra quick and an ideal slot WR.


6th round: RT/G Garrett Gilkey

Marvin and company showed interest at the Senior Bowl in the 6’6” 318lb Gilkey.  While level of completion comes into play when evaluating him, he held his own at the Senior Bowl and would provide depth at both guard and RT.


7th round: K Dustin Hopkins

Yes, on average, a kicker only pans out to be good players in 10-15% of 7th round draft picks. However, at least a kicker would only have to beat out Mike Nugent, who has missed several games in his career with injury.


*I left the third and fourth round selections out to allow defensive players to be selected with those picks.
