My Final Mock, now that Adam Jones is a Cowboy
1a. Antoine Cason, CB
Height: 6-0 | Weight: 191 | 40-Time: 4.45
At this point, I'm assuming there has been a run on the top tier CB's and we see Cason and Flowers as the only guys left on the board, Cason gets the nod for his measureables and his skill. He's got great bloodlines and has no character concerns. Also nice to have a guy you don't have to worry about matching up against the bigger WR's, especially since we like to move Newman to the slot and he may end up on a teams #1 receiver often.
1b. James Hardy, WR
Height: 6-5 | Weight: 217 | 40-Time: 4.45
I know Jerry has been going on and on about how there are no impact WR's in the draft, but we didn't bring Hardy in for no reason. I think he's doing it to keep those pesky Redskins from stealing Hardy from us, especially since they've spent much of the last two weeks poising deals we may have wanted to make. At this point, I don't anticipate a draft day trade for a vet WR. I don't see how a 6'5" WR that runs a 4.45 and can jump out of the building, isn't an impact player. Is a no nonsense type of guy that takes football very seriously.
2. Carl Nicks, OT/OG
Height: 6-5 | Weight: 341 | 40-Time: 5.22
Got arrested recently for failing to leave a party when ordered to by the police, and subsequently banned form his pro day by his coach. Still he's a massive kid with good feet that could take Koiser or Colombo's spot in time.
3. Steve Slaton, RB
Height: 5-9 | Weight: 197 | 40-Time: 4.45
Slaton gets knocked because of his size, but he's a perfect complement to Barber and won't cost us a 1st day pick. He's got solid hands, and is pretty strong for his size (19 reps on the bench). He's a slasher to Barber's pounding style, and he won't be asked to shoulder the load alone.
4. Adam Jones, CB
Height: 5-10 | Weight: 187 | 40-Time: 4.38
Acquired from the Titans.
5. Frank Okam, NT
Height: 6-4 | Weight: 347 | 40-Time: 5.32
I had us taking him in the 4th until we gave it up for Pacman, now I just hope he slides to the end of the 5th. He's huge, strong at the point, good in run support and a terror when motivated. At this point in the draft, he's a terrific value.
6. Tommy Blake, DE/OLB
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 272 | 40-Time: 4.78
I believe we should add a pass rusher every year, and Tommy Blake is it this year. This is actually earlier than I would have liked to take him since our 6th rounder is the 1st of the round, but he may not last into the 7th.
7. Jerome Messam, RB
Height: 6-4 | Weight: 248 | 40-Time: 4.55
Huge, Brandon Jacobs-like back for us, with great foot speed for his size. Could immediately be a short yardage specialist and special teamer because of his size, and could certainly pick up the slack if Slaton or Barber end up dinged up. He's a bruiser that doesn't go down easy and plays like you owe him money, could have played at big time D1 schools but lacked the grades so intelligence is a factor. Luckily for us, we're asking him to play football, not chief a mission to Mars.
We need wins, and that's all we need. I don't give a damn about anyone on this roster over wins. I'd trade Ware, Lee and Dez if it meant more wins.
