Construct Your Ideal First Three Rounds

It looks like things are settling down on the Free Agency front. Terrence Newman is done, and everybody seems to assume that Andre Smith will get done, too. Thomas Howard is still up in the air, but I think we can all agree that questions about Howard's knee and Rey Maualuga's.....well.....everything dictate taking a linebacker at at some point during the first three rounds of the draft. So, with that in mind, I thought it might be fun to take a look at the prospects who might be available at our positions of need in the first three rounds, and get the board's consensus on where we should go based on need and value.

So, pick one guy from each list to construct your ideal first three rounds. No taking one of my first-round guys, then saying that one of my other first-round guys will be available for our early second-rounder.

1(21): WR Tavon Austin, RB Eddie Lacy, S Kenny Vaccaro, LB Arthur Brown

2(37) (from Raiders. In exchange for Carson Palmer. Lol.): WR DeAndre Hopkins, Keenan Allen, Cordarelle Patterson, RB Giovani Bernard, S Jonathan Cyprien, Matt Elam, LB Khaseem Greene, Jamie Collins

2(53): WR Robert Woods, RB Johnathan Franklin, S D.J. Swearinger, LB Kevin Minter

3(84): WR Justin Hunter, Quinton Patton, Denard Robinson, RB Joseph Randle, Andre Ellington, Montee Ball, Marcus Lattimore, S Eric Reid, Shamarko Thomas, LB Chase Thomas, Jelani Jenkins

I'm torn. I'm a HUGE Tavon Austin fan, so I'm tempted to go Austin, Cyprien, Franklin, Jenkins. But, I'm just not sure about spending another first rounder on a Wide Receiver with Sanu and Marvin Jones looking like potential breakout candidates. So, I think Vaccaro, Bernard, Minter, Robinson (irrational Michigan love) might do a better job of addressing our needs. But, can Minter play outside? Can Denard handle return duties? Whatever happens, there seem to be a lot of good need/value combinations available to us.
