Who's Your Tandem?

We all have our draft preferences. Lets leave the whole mundane speculation of who goes where for another time. Eff value for now. Let's see not only who you like, but who you like paired up with whom. The obvious choice would be OLB prospects. Or possibly OLB/DE prospects to match up. But I don't want to limit it to that. We can throw in some WR/RB combos, or some OL/TE combos. I even like safety combos. I'll throw out some of mine to start us off. Hopefully, ya'll join in.

Quinton Coples/Chandler Jones -- these two DEs I think would compliment each other nicely as bookends in a 40 front. But you could also have a deadly pass rushing combo by going to a 30 front with Coples as the DE and Jones as the OLB rushing off his flank. They're both long and athletic and are difficult to contain once they gain a step.

Melvin Ingram/Shea McClellin -- these two are Rex Ryan wet dreams. They are both versatile enough to play all along the pass rushing front in either 43 looks or 34 looks. They each can bring it from the edge from their ideal 34 OLB position, but they're both big, smart and athletic enough to line up as 43 DEs, 34 DEs, ILBs and pretty much anything else you can think of as the situation requires.

Nick Perry/Whitney Mercilus -- both are pure, athletic pass rushers that can bring the heat from both 30 fronts and 40 fronts. As a pair, I think these two would cause some migrains.

Markell Martin/George Iloka -- would be a very athletic, very aggressive safety tandem. And they would perfectly compliment Revis and Cro in the secondary.

Bruce Irvin/Mychal Kendricks -- one of the major knocks against the Jets defense is a lack of athleticism. Well Irvin and Kendricks would add just that. Irvin from the OLB spot, Kendricks from the ILB spot. If we were somehow able to add both of these guys, our defense would be much more dynamic.

Trent Richardson/David Wilson -- while the above combos are somewhat realistic, the odds of landing both of these RBs pretty much exists entirely within the realm of fantasy. But I love my RBs, and watching this pairing would be almost like porn for me.

So, who would you like to draft as a tandem if you could?
