The Colts get to choose between Randall and Collins. Collins is a great box safety but his coverage leaves a lot to be desired and the Colts are higher on Randall. I had Collins falling to round two off and on in my mocks and I think he will be there in my final as well. Randall has picked up a lot of steam as of late and could go even higher to Dallas or Pittsburgh. He gives them a true defensive weapon as opposed to body builder LaRon Landry, who was cut.
Gut-Prediction: Colts take Randall
It seems that Raheem Moore may walk so the Broncos will need a FS to pair with Ward. Holliman is a ball-hawking FS who has been compared to Ed Reed. Holliman had 14 interceptions this year which shows his instincts and ability to be in right place at the right time.
I think they'll lose Rahim Moore and will need to have a future replacement. I don't think he'll start right away but he'll get it eventually. He's a playmaker who could allow Ward to go play in the trenches. I like the fit here with the scheme and with Ward
Eric Kendricks and Denzel Perryman fell to the Packers' lap... and they pass on both for a second-round safety? The Randall love didn't make much sense to me - he's athletic, but as Jon Gruden noted, he struggles to tackle. However, I had him pegged as an early second-rounder, so this isn't a mega reach, or anything. I just think the Packers had better options at their disposal.

Adrian Amos, S,
The Bears have a new front office, so I didn't know how they would draft. Based on their picks thus far, Chicago fans should be very optimistic (despite the Jay Cutler situation). Adrian Amos, a potential third-round pick, is a fantastic athlete who was highly productive at Penn State. He fills a big need in the Bears' secondary. Great pick.

Mykkele Thompson, SS/FS,
No one mentioned Mykkele Thompson as a draftable prospect, so this pick is pretty sketchy. Thompson has a lot of experience at Texas, but will probably be relegated to special teams for most of his career. This is a reach.

Cedric Thompson, FS,
More secondary help makes sense for the Dolphins. I'm not as excited about this fifth-round pick, but it makes sense, as Thompson fits the range at this juncture.

Derron Smith, S,
Derron Smith probably would have gone earlier than this had he not undergone sports hernia surgery earlier this offseason. With that in mind, this is a solid choice in the middle of the sixth round.
