Mayhew Approaches Draft Differently

Say this for general manager Martin Mayhew, he’s unconventional.

Riley Reiff, considered by most the second best offensive line prospect in the draft, fell into his lap at 23. But that was the last pick that didn’t cause some head-scratching.

In Round Two, he bypassed a much-needed cornerback to take a receiver – Oklahoma’s Ryan Broyles, who had ACL surgery on Nov. 21 and may not be ready for training camp.

He finally took a corner in the third round – Louisiana-Lafayette’s Dwight Bentley – and wound up with three in all. He took Chris Greenwood from Division III Albion (Mich.) in the fifth round and Jonte Green from New Mexico State in the sixth.
