We’ve all got one. While we all like to gab and gab about which prospects will go in the first and who has the most-realistic mock drafts, most draft fanatics and NFL fans also have “their guys” which usually means a irrational fandom of a single prospect you’d kill for if it meant your favorite team drafts him.

Today, I want to hear those players for all of you.

For me, I have to go with my Iowa bias. I would kill to see defensive tackle Daviyon Nixon in the powder blue and gold.

A consensus All-American and the Big Ten’s Defensive Lineman of the Year, Nixon is an uber-athletic lineman who plays with a tremendous motor. He was so much fun to watch this past season and I believe he’d quickly become a fan-favorite with the Bolts.

In eight games this past year, Nixon recorded 5.5 sacks, 13.5 tackles-for-loss, and an amazing pick-six that displayed his elite athleticism. It’s a pipe dream, but it’s my dream, nonetheless.

Now for today’s links.
