March 07 Mock
Dallas has 14, 45, 82, 113, 144, 175, and 206 prior to the supplemental picks.
I make 2 trades:
Trade #45 for #59 and #91.
Trade #82 for #95, #127 and #191.
Pick #14 (1-14): David DeCastro
Day one starter.
Pick #59 (2-27): Bruce Irvin
Super Athletic passrusher. Athleticism should allow him to develop as a coverage player. Considered undersized at 6-3, 245. Would play SOLB on passing downs and backup WOLB. Could get some reps at ILB also.
If Irvin is gone, then the pick would be Shea McClellin.
Pick #91 (3-27): Trumaine Johnson
Johnson could play CB or FS. Good size at 6-2, 204 with decent speed and long arms.
If McClellin is available here, then he would be the pick.
Pick #95 (3-31): Josh Robinson
Super athlete, not just a straight line speedster. Excellent ball skills.
Decent size at 5-10, 199. Played mostly zone but has enough size and more
than enough athleticism to play man.
Pick #113 (4-17): Philip Blake
Underrated center with good size at 6-3, 311. Better than expected athleticism. Although he only benched 22 reps, he appears powerful in games and appears to have "heavy hands".
Pick #127 (4-31): Derek Wolfe
Passrushing 5-Technique. Looked good in drills at the Senior Bowl and had good measureables at the combine.
Pick #144 (5-16): Akiem Hicks
Big at 6-5, 318 with good athleticism and very long 35-1/8" arms.
Attended college in Canada which pushed him down to the 5th round.
Pick #175 (6-15): Chris Rainey
Speedster with some wiggle. Excellent punt returner. Listed as RB in college, but would be slot WR in the NFL.
Pick #191 (6-31): Evan Rodriguez
He is listed as TE, but at 6-1, 239, he would be a FB/H-back/TE. Very good receiver and
probably as good of blocker as some of the tall skinny TEs that will get
drafted much higher. If he can be the 3rd TE, then the team can keep him and a FB on the active roster.
Pick #206 (7-14): Miles Burris
This guy plays all out all of the time. Would be 3-4 ILB. Good size at 6-2, 246. Didn't run at the combine, but was excellent in the bench (31), vert (37.5), and broad (10-1). Arm length is good for his
size at 31-7/8".
Sammy Brown OLB
Plays OLB in a 3-4 defense. Interesting physical abilities but needs some time/coaching.
Kentrell Lockett OLB
Super wingspan of 84". Good 1st step. Would be an OLB in the 3-4. Needs some time to develop.
Delano Johnson OLB/ILB
Intense. Plays with bad intentions. Good in the box and in the open field. Good size at 6-4, 267 with 34" arms. Played 4-3 OLB in college. Projects to 3-4 OLB or possibly 3-4 ILB.
Chigbo Anunoby DE/DT
Big at 6-4, 324. Has decent quickness.
Charles Deas DE/DT
Big at 6-3, 316 with 34-1/2" arms. Good quickness with some passrush ability.
Desmond Marrow CB Toledo, 6-3, 210
Big, fluid, physical with long arms. I see him as a possible FS.
Cliff Harris CB Oregon, 5-11, 175
Knucklehead and somehow only ran 4.59 forty; however, "video don't lie", this guy is a playmaker and excellent punt returner. I would say "film don't lie", but then an internet troll would pop up to tell me that what I'm watching is not game film. lol.
Omar Bolden CB Arizone State, 5-11, 202
Missed all of 2011 season with injury. Impressive 25 reps on the bench and good arm length at 31-1/2".
Chris Greenwood CB, 6-1, 196
Good size with good arm length at 31-1/4". Projected 4.3 forty. FYI - It appears Albion is somewhere in Michigan.
