Post FA mock
Round 1- Whitney Mercilus OLB Illinois- Good size, great athletic ability, and good production in college. Plays as situational pass rusher this year and groomed as Spencer's replacement for next year.
Round 2- Mohamed Sanu WR Rutgers- Our great FA lets us take a great value at WR earlier than expected. Sanu was a 1st round pick until he ran a 4.64 40 at the combine. But that doesnt scare me, he is still a great value here. At 6'2 215 his great size combined with some of the best hands in the draft will make him a very good possession WR in the NFL. Not afraid to go over the middle and move the chains. Also a great blocker.
Round 3- Josh Norman CB Costal Carolina- Good size and athletic ability and plays best in press coverage. Dominated D2 with 35 pass breakups and 13 career INTS. Had a good senior bowl to quite concerns of his ability to play against top competition. Possible replacement for Jenkins in 1-2 years
Round 4- Phillip Blake C Baylor- Drafted to compete at C right away and to be an eventual entrenched starter for years to come. Probably the 2nd best C in this draft behind Kronz in my opinion so the value is good here.
Round 5- Loni Fangupo NT BYU- This is the 1 position myself, and most others, hoped to upgrade this off season. And I think we can still do it late in the draft with a guy like Fangupo. Hes the ideal NT. Short, stout, and incredibly strong. Not an every down player but a good rotational player to let Rat slide to the outside from time to time.
Round 6- James Hanna TE Oklahoma- Its no secret that we are looking for a 2nd/3rd TE. Hanna provides some versatility with good blocking skills while also a guy teams would have to respect as a receiving threat. Not the freak of nature athlete TE, but knows how to get the job done.
Comp Pick- Andrew Datko OT FL ST- Started 40 games at LT for FL St before his senior year was cut short early due to shoulder surgery. His health is a legit concern, but if he can stay healthy he will a great value this late in the draft given his pedigree.
Round 7- Ryan Van Bergen DE Michigan- At 6'6 290 lbs hes worth a look to see if he can make the roster.
