Updated post-Kosier release MOCK
Alright so Kyle's release changes things, IMO. DeCastro seems to be a serious target now, and I don't think they can afford to trade down and still land him. Cincinnati would definitely take him @ #17.
Here's my take on the OL now:
-You can pencil in Nate Livings at one of the guard spots.
-I believe Bernadeau could be an option at CENTER.
-If DeCastro is drafted, pencil him in at the other guard spot.
Now the mock:
Round 1: David DeCastro, OG, Stanford
Immediate starter, plug him in for 10 years.
Round 2: Ronnell Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
He'll be groomed behind Spencer for a year. Had a very solid Pro Day.
Round 3: Philip Blake, C, Baylor
Will immediately compete for the starting center spot with Bernadeau and maybe Arkin.
Round 4: Dwight Bentley, CB, Louisiana-Lafayette
Comes in as the 4th CB and could push for a starting job next year if Jenkins isn't back in 2013.
Round 5: Akiem Hicks, DE/DT, Regina
More depth is needed on the DL.
Round 6: James Hanna, TE, Oklahoma
Round 7: Donovan Richard, S, South Carolina State
Week 1 Starting OL: Tyron Smith, Nate Livings, Mackenzy Bernadeau, David DeCastro, Doug Free
