White and Nerdy
Feed Me More Mock
right now we only have 6 picks. That is like going to a restaurant and not getting an appetizer or dessert. You get fed, but you leave wanting more.
So I say we are active in this draft, especially if we are in the early middle of each round.
Trade our 1st for a 1st, 2nd and 6th
Trade our 2nd for a 2nd, 3rd, and 7th
Trade our 3rd for a 3rd, 4th
Now we have 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 6, 7 (almost doubling our picks)
1 - OG Jonathan Cooper - UNC
We need OL help in the worst way. Livings has shown steady improvement as the season as gone on, but Bernie is horrible. Cooper is a beast and an athletic speciman.
2 - S Kenny Vaccaro - Texas
This is a homer pick, but it is validated. We need safety help and he is one of the best prospects in this draft. He plays sideline to sideline. He is very good is pass coverage, though he can be beat from time to time. He brings aggression, toughness, and leadership. He will hit you if you come into his zone, that is for sure.
2 - DE Ezekial Ansah - BYU
We need DL help, especially more pass rush. This guy is an athletic freak, a strong character guy, and has a great motor. He is relatively new to the game, but his freakish athleticism and willingness to learn and excel will make him a great prospect.
3 - C Khaled Holmes - USC
We need a Center. Costa has played very good this year, when he hasn't been injured. Unfortunately, he has been injured almost all year. Cook was an adequate backup to bring in, but he isn't the long term answer. Killer has yet to step on the field, because of injury. Holmes is an animal. He comes from a football factory with a history of churning out great players. Holmes and Costa can compete for the starting job....giving us a nice long term duo at the Center position.
3 - WR Quinton Patton - Louisiana Tech
This guy is one heckuva WR. I am worried though, cause he is charging up the value board. He may be gone by the 2nd round. If he is still on the board, no brainer, we take him. If he is gone, I would like to go after Cobi Hamilton of Arkansas. IMO, either one here at this pick would be outstanding for our offense and Romo.
4 - OT Lane Johnson - OU
Ok, I hate the Sooners with a passion, and I am sure I have made that obvious. With that being said, this guy is a very good OT. He was a 6th round prospect to start the season, but he has been surging up the charts. I have seen him as high as the 2nd round on some sites. I am hoping with my fingers crossed that he will be here in the 4th.....though I have a feeling he will be long gone by now. Still, this is just a mock and we never actually know, so for now I will keep him here in my mock.
4 - OLB Quanterus Smith - Western Kentucky
This guy has the body and athletic ability to be a longtime stud in the NFL. To get him here in the 4th is an absolute steal, if he pans out. We should be in the market for an OLB this offseason and Smith is an outstanding midround prospect.
5 - RB Kerwynn Williams - Utah St.
He is undersized. However, he is fast and quite versatile. He can run, catch, return....and do it all well. Regardless of his size, he simply produces when he steps on the field.
6 - DT Brandon Williams - Missouri Southern St.
A big, athletic small school player. He has a great work ethic and a strong character. This is my late round steal.
6 - CB Melvin White - Louisiana Lafayette
He can play S or CB, and does well at both. We most likely lose Mike Jenkins in the offseason, so CB will be an area of need. I am hoping that we can somehow find a way to re-sign Jenkins. You can never have too many good CBs, especially with the injury bug always looming. Whether we keep Jenks or not, White would be a nice late-round prospect.
7 - OT Kyle Long - Oregon
He is projected as a 6th rounder in some mocks. Still, he is raw, and new to OT. He has pedigree, son of Howie and brother of Chris. He is 6-7 over 300 lbs. He is playing OT right now, but he has experience along the DL. I figure that a 7th round prospect with his size, athleticism, versatility, and pedigree is well worth the pick.
