After a more eventful 6th round where we selected three players at three areas of need. We now move onto the 7th round. Bryce Brown went to the Eagles, Cam Johnson went to the 49'ers and Alfonzo Dennard went to the Patriots, all three of those guys I wanted to take a run at in the seventh.

Instead with the 242nd pick in the 2012 NFL draft we have opted for Antionio Allen. In my own personal opinion this is a fantastic selection. We needed more help at the safety position and Allen is a guy who i had rated in the 4th round.

He actually played at the rover position and at 6'1 and 210lb's he has very nice size. Now Antonio isn't a cover safety, which I guess comes from the fact he played in the box the majority of the time. However he is a very good run defender and will give us excellent support in this area and on special teams.

Along with Demario Davis, this is one of my favourite picks....hell I've liked the whole draft, who am I kidding.
