Less than 2 weeks! Are your boards set? 3 scenarios w/Poll

With the draft less than two weeks away, I have finalized my boards and have come up with a couple of scenarios that I'd be very comfortable with. After going through prospects round-by-round and comparing value, need, and fit, the chips seemed to fall favoring the offense (obviously more pressing holes on that side of the ball anyway). I've considered who is already on the roster and looked at improving starters, future starters, and adding quality depth that can develop into key contributors. Not all questions could be answered in this single draft, but I think most of these moves will help tremendously. The following are just my top scenarios that I've considered.

A couple of things to note: this is assuming that the top QB's are not available at our pick positions and no crazy unexpected things happen early (like Clowney or Watkins falling to us). Also, trades were set up with comparable value and to be appealing to other teams so we can benefit from them instead of looking for all we can get and ending up with nothing.

Positional notes: with glaring needs and obvious desires to upgrade at WR, OG, and QB, these were targeted early looking for players that can contribute immediately. Currently our roster has no backup or swing Center, so I looked at a couple of Centers that appear to be capable and athletic enough to develop at OG also, for depth. I looked at filling the slot WR with smallish speed guys that seem to be threats in what this scheme is shaping up to be. You may notice that in all the listed scenarios I've slotted in a particular player. It is such a crap shoot with who may be available in the later rounds, so I looked at a guy that can develop behind some veterans and can possibly take over the backup or starting job (Hint: Lovie just called out Tandy and Goldson's future here is contigent upon living up to his contract).

Obviously everyone has their personal preferences about certain players (and that's cool, feel free to tear this apart below), but this is just my analysis of how players can project in playing in our schemes. And please don't just look at the early round guys, see how the later guys shape out the entire draft (They may be the gems we need).
