    I used the Drafttek mock draft simulator and then changed the picks I didn't like based on who was still available. I prefer Brockers to Poe in Round one but gave you both mocks so that you can argue about them ;)!


    Mock Draft Rev. 2 - Taking Brockers Round 1

    1) Brockers, DE.....would prefer Fletcher Cox or Coples if either falls....wouldn't be opposed to trading down. Brockers Scouting report here: http://www.nepatriotsdraft.com/2012/01/michael-brockers-scouting-report.html
    2) Alameda Ta'amu, DT....maybe a bit of a reach here....could take Texas NT later
    3) Philip Blake, C
    4) Jamell Fleming, CB
    4) Trevor Guyton, DE....could go slot receiver here too....
    5) Brandon Brooks, G....another workout warrior
    6) Ron Brooks, CB/FS......4.35 40.....Played FS too...has visited Dallas so they like him.....I like him even more: http://www.nepatriotsdraft.com/2012/03/ron-brooks-scouting-report.html
    7) Asa Jackson, CB......also fast

    Mock Draft Revision 1

    1) Dontari Poe, DT....risky pick
    2) Kevin Zeitler, OG/C.....Have read he can also play center. [/FONT]
    3) Trumaine Johnson, CB/FS.....not so fast but good coverage and ball skills....projected as FS: http://www.buffalobillsdraft.com/2012/01/cb-trumaine-johnson-scouting-report/
    4) Derek Wolfe, DE....workout warrior....worth a shot here: http://www.nepatriotsdraft.com/2012/04/derek-wolfe-scouting-report.html
    4) Trevor Guyton, DE
    5) Brandon Brooks, G....another workout warrior
    6) Ron Brooks, CB/FS......4.35 40
    7) Asa Jackson, CB......also fast

    Interesting concept using the simulator, but I think some of their rankings are off.

    Mock Draft Rev. 2 - Taking Brockers Round 1

    1) Brockers, DE.....would prefer Fletcher Cox or Coples if either falls....wouldn't be opposed to trading down. Brockers Scouting report here: http://www.nepatriotsdraft.com/2012/...ng-report.html
    I just don't get it with Brockers. He's got size, but he is not very quick and not exceptionally productive.
    2) Alameda Ta'amu, DT....maybe a bit of a reach here....could take Texas NT later
    I just don't think the Boys want a Run-plugger. They are looking for more pass-rush, IMO.
    3) Philip Blake, C
    Excellent pick.
    4) Jamell Fleming, CB
    I'm OK with Fleming here. He's a limited athlete, but has good instincts and plays hard.
    4) Trevor Guyton, DE....could go slot receiver here too....
    Maybe. He's a bit on the short side for a 5-tech.
    5) Brandon Brooks, G....another workout warrior
    I don't see any possibility that he goes this low. Some projections have him as high as the 2nd round.
    6) Ron Brooks, CB/FS......4.35 40.....Played FS too...has visited Dallas so they like him.....I like him even more: http://www.nepatriotsdraft.com/2012/...ng-report.html
    I think he will have to play FS to have a shot in the NFL. He is fast, but way too stiff for CB, IMO. The stiffness you see in game footage is verified by his 4.56 Short Shuttle, the same SS time as DeCastro.
    7) Asa Jackson, CB......also fast
    I think he goes before Ron Brooks.

    Mock Draft Revision 1

    1) Dontari Poe, DT....risky pick
    If I had to choose, I would take Poe over Brockers, but I don't really want either in the 1st round. Poe just didn't do much against mid-level competition.
    2) Kevin Zeitler, OG/C.....Have read he can also play center. [/FONT]
    Safe pick that should be ready to play early, but has limited upside. I think there will be better players available at #45.
    3) Trumaine Johnson, CB/FS.....not so fast but good coverage and ball skills....projected as FS: http://www.buffalobillsdraft.com/201...outing-report/
    Good pick. I think he projects to FS but could probably play some CB against bigger receivers. Tall with long arms.
    4) Derek Wolfe, DE....workout warrior....worth a shot here: http://www.nepatriotsdraft.com/2012/...ng-report.html
    I've been mocking Wolfe in the 4th also. Unfortunately, it looks like he could go as high the 2nd now. Kiper's latest mock has him in the 1st.
    4) Trevor Guyton, DE
    Maybe. He's a bit on the short side for a 5-tech.
    5) Brandon Brooks, G....another workout warrior
    I don't see any possibility that he goes this low. Some projections have him as high as the 2nd round.
    6) Ron Brooks, CB/FS......4.35 40
    I think he will have to play FS to have a shot in the NFL. He is fast, but way too stiff for CB, IMO. The stiffness you see in game footage is verified by his 4.56 Short Shuttle, the same SS time as DeCastro.
    7) Asa Jackson, CB......also fast

    Thanks for your comments. Yes....drafttek's rankings are off, but its a convenient way to do your own mock as it picks for the other teams. Their grabs/lockouts are silly in my opinion so I didn't use them. As for the two mocks I posted, I wouldn't be opposed to swapping some of those 5, 6 or 7th round picks for the second 4th (Guyton). Guyton is primarily a depth/rotation pick at DE (a younger Spears/Coleman)....perhaps there is something better available there. I don't think I would take Poe at 14...I would rather trade down. With Brockers, who knows....some rate him highly, some rate him as a big risk. If you can't get a blue chip DL at 14, trading down is a good strategy this year as the draft is deep in two areas of need, CB and OG..... IMO the boys must rebuild their DL (with more than one pick) if they want to compete this year.
