BG: Had a chance to add some very athletic guys who are good guys in the locker room.
BG: I don't think you can feel all your holes. We have a whole day with eight picks. We had some guys who didn't show what they were able to next year, Reggie Gilbert, Biegel. But we have the eight picks tomorrow.
BG: As the board thinned out we felt good about getting up and getting Oren Burks.,
BG: The two corners that we picked yesterday and today, we're really high on their upside. Good athletes. Dont' want to compare them to (Randall and Rollins). Rosters evolve and chance to beef up out secondary.
BG said that he felt the number of athletic defensive players was dwindling and that he felt he needed to move up to make sure he got Burks. He said it was part thinking there was a specific team that might take him and part knowing he would kick himself if he lost him standing pat at 101.
BG: He said it's very difficult to find someone who is athletic and versatile at linebacker.
Gutekunst on defense: I think we've added competition. Roster building is a continuous thing. We added the kind of people we wanted.
Gutekunst said he's very committed in getting high character players.
BG on Jackson: Long corner with excellent ball skills. He just broke out this year. When the ball was in the air, had an excellent knack. Loose, fluid athlete. His best football is ahead of him. We were surprised Josh was where he was.
Gutekunst said he liked Dante Pettis a lot, but they were going for Josh Jackson.
Gutekunst said he plans to go home now and get two beers out of his fridge and then go to bed. Said he and the scouts will come in early tomorrow and get the board set again and start making calls.
They gave up 101, the first pick in the fourth and 174 in the fifth.
He didn't want to give away multiple picks He said he would have done it if necessary, but the interest was in the top pick in the fourth round.
Yes, that's correct. Thanks.
