My Line of Scrimmage Mock
This is going to focus on OL and Defensive front 7. In other words, blocking and tackling.
First of all in Free Agency I would go after Carl Nicks, Calais Campbell, and Laron Landry. I re-sign Laurent Robinson and Anthony Spencer.
I flip Free and Smith, and I move Ratliff to DE. He says he will play anywhere, but prefers NT. Well, he can play the Nose at times, but would start at LDE and Campbell at RDE.
#14. David DeCastro, OG, Stanford, 6'5", 315. I put him at RG (Nicks plays LG) and get ready to pass to set up the run. I believe this guy on sweeps right is every bit as potent as any Offensive weapon on a team. The pick just makes sense. Trade up to get him if you have to, but get him.
#45. Dontari Poe, NT, Memphis, 6'5", 350. A massive man who eats up double teams and pushes the pocket backwards. No more running up the middle. He starts.
#83. Vinny Curry, OLB, Marshall, 6'3", 263. He could rise up the ranks, but right now he fits near here and I think he would be a steal. If we can't re-sign Spencer I'd consider him at #45 and would also consider starting him.
#114. Michael Brewster, C, Ohio State, 6'4", 305. He starts right away. I have that much faith he is better than Kowalski and Costa.
#145. Matt Reynolds, OT, BYU, 6'4", 305. Need OT depth. He is a RT at the NFL level.
#176. Jerry Franklin, ILB, Arkansas, 6'1", 245. Need depth at ILB.
6th round Comp pick. Kavario Middleton, TE, Montana, 6'5", 250. Blocking TE who takes Bennett's roster spot when he leaves via FA.
#207. Donte Paige-Moss, OLB, North Carolina, 6'4, 260. Is leaving school too soon after an injury. Worth waiting for. Could be a late steal.
