With all these players rising in stock, there has to be some players that stock is being lowered? Can anyone give me the run down on notable players that are falling right now?
I really like Swearinger and hope he is there in the 3rd and if we took him in the 2nd I wouldent be upset.

Morgan and Hankerson should come in healthy and have a full camp.
I think we possibly try and find that answer via TE? If Fred Davis is 100%, awesome. If Niles Paul "gets it", awesome. Logan Paulsen is a workhorse but not a threat. But the position isn't too reliable for us in 2013. We might draft a TE in the later rounds who can fly, and hope we can teach him how to block. The blocking assignments for a TE in our offense can be very different on a play by play basis. There's less line up opposite your man and drive him backwards, but rather more deception or combo blocks. So we don't need a Gronk level of talent to be able to contribute everywhere.
NFL defensive coaches have been unimpressed by Leonard Hankerson's ability to create separation through Hankerson's first two NFL seasons.
Hankerson is blessed with great size and massive hands, but his 2012 performance was incredibly inconsistent both on the field and in the box score. He typically only got open when play-action gave him room to run downfield. Beat writer John Keim says he'd still "strongly bet" on 24-year-old Hankerson improving in his third season. We'll keep tabs on him this spring and summer. Jan 25 - 2:01 PM

Honestly, the defense suffered from really bad luck last year. If they can return Orakpo, Carriker, and Robinson on the front with Meriweather, Jackson, Gomes and Bernstine in the secondary, it become less of a need IMO. I could really live with:
Round 2- Aaron Dobson WR
Round 3- Brennan Williams OT
Round 4- Ace Sanders WR/KR
I would be very happy with that.
I'd still like to draft Will Davis (Maybe the 4th if his stocks fallen far enough?). I may be stupid in thinking his errors are only footwork/technique related, I don't know, I'm just a football fan. But I think he's got some real athletic talent, and has shown he can blitz decently or recognize screens well.

But, I would question how much further would a WR corps of Garcon, Moss, Morgan, Hankerson, Dobson, Sanders, Robinson vault an offense that was 4th in scoring and 5th in yards even with their own bad luck of being without Garcon and Fred Davis for most of the season.
The impact is other players being relied upon to make plays other than RGIII himself. As I stated in another thread about his injury, RGIII's running ability should be the 'gravy' that puts this offense over the top, not the lifeblood of it. Bringing in those WR threats and the RT will protect RGIII in a multi-faceted way. He will get direct protection the tackle and he won't have to be relied upon to create so much with these added playmakers.
