Sasquatch Mock v. 1.0
Truth be told, I'm totally at a loss when predicting how this draft will turn out, but I can't resist joining the fun.
This mock assumes that we fail to move up (possible trade with NE) to secure Iupati or Pouncey and trade down instead with Cleveland who wants to grab a corner (Wilson, McCourty, Robinson) or receiver (Tate, Bryant, Thomas). I'm going to be conservative and say we get their 2nd and 3rd in return.
We're all familiar with the players by now, so I'm going to keep the commentary and player profiles to a minimum.
38. Rodger Saffold, OT/OG, Indiana
Between Saffold, Free, Brewster, and Newhouse (see below) we should find some effective combination for LT/RT with the others being moved to LG/RG as backups and future starters. However it works out, our tackles will be more athletic and agile which suits the skill set of Romo and Jones.
59. Alex Carrington, DE, Arkansas State
Strong as an ox and stout against the run. Adds depth and talent to the DL in the event that Spears or another departs via free agency in the near future.
72. Taylor Price, WR, Ohio
I know the brain trust claims to be satisfied with our WR corps and expresses every bit of confidence in RW (I've not given up hope on him yet) but, as the old saying goes, where there's smoke, there's fire, and we've expressed interest in so many WRs that I can't help but think we'll draft one to keep churning the talent pool. Price is an excellent athlete and a good value here.
91. Jerome Murphy, CB, USF
I would love to add both a corner for depth and a safety to compete for a starting position, but I can't seem to make it work, so barring that I'm taking Murphy here as he can play either position, being athletic and physical, though not a burner. Put him where he fits best.
123. Marshall Newhouse, OT/OG, TCU
Big, athletic, and versatile lineman that can backup multiple positions and eventually start at guard. The goal here is to not only get younger but also more mobile without sacrificing too much brute strength up front.
192. Rodderick Muckelroy, OLB, Texas
Cowboys have shown interest in him and in the linebacker position in general. Our roster is pretty crammed with LBs but I think we'll continue to draft LBers until we can find adequate backups and eventual replacements for James and Brooking. I envision him as a Will backer.
226. John Connor, FB, Kentucky
Can't have a Cowboys draft without a TE or FB, and since the team has expressed an interest in him, he's my last pick.
