From a entertainment purpose it was fun.
Of course, I hate the Cowboys picks and soon enough all those hoping for a OT will start to realize their dreams are about to be crushed.
Okung to the Lions is interesting. The Lions like him but are getting some offers for that pick.
Good pick to the Chiefs at #5, not many people want to do it but Bryan will go somewhere in the top 10 and the Chiefs make the most sense.
Dont agree at all with the Raiders pick but I see your reasoning. Just not the Raiders type of player. Better options there.
Interesting twist for the Bills at #9 and not that far fetched. Also keep your eye on Anthony Davis there.
Not sure how I feel with Iupati at SF and Pouncey at Pit
If Earl Thomas drops to 20 I might be sick. Dont be surprised to see him go top 15 but it's possible he could slide.
Everyone wants to give the Bengals a TE. My suggestion is to forget that idea for the sake of any future mocks.
Spiller going to the Patriots would ruin my day
Benn has no business in Round 1. That's a serious reach.
Kyle Wilson would never get past Dallas but that goes back to that Davis pick.
Brian Price makes sense for the Colts and DT make more sense but his stock is taking a hit and I'm not sure how he would really fit in with that defense.
I could be wrong...but I do not think Weatherspoon is a fit in a 3-4 defense..you have him going to Miami at 12..Am I wrong about that?
Hes the top LB on the board at that point, and everyone knows that Bill Parcells loves his LB's. If he is not a fit in a 3-4 I have not ever heard that before and that will cause me to redo my mock.
I disagree with this only because I've watched him for 3 years and a lot of other WR's and he's as good as any of them. He ran decent at the combine and then was clocked in the 4.3's @ Illinois pro day. He had horrible coaching and even worse QB play during his time @ Illinois. The kid is going to be a good one and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see him have an impact his rookie year. Rejus is the real deal.
The reason I have them taking him is the Ravens seem to like Possession WRs, hell they got arguably the best two in the game right now in Mason and Boldin, and who better for the top Possession WR on the board to learn from than Mason and Boldin, their work ethic and ability will do wonders for Benn for him to eventually become great aswell, with Mason only having a year left most likely, they need a WR for the long run, Benn fits the mold and makes more sense than Tate because of the style the Ravens have become accustomed to
Updated. Please send comments and suggestions.
I'll be honest, I only looked at the Cowboys pick and for that alone you get a F
If a "lock" means not a chance in hell I'll take back that grade. I am getting kind of old so I'm not up you youngsters and your terminology.
Way too many need picks that bypass talent. Assuming you're fairly new at mock drafts, it's a good effort, but you need less reaches.
For example (BTW this is all just my opinion, not trying to be a know it all)
-Detroit may want Russell Okung, but they won't take him unless they're able to trade down.
-I live in DC and everyone agrees that the pick for the skins will be either Okung or Clausen.
-JMO, Dez Bryant is gonna need a parachute
-Very unlikely Clausen lasts till 13. Between MRyan, JFlacco, MStaford and MSanchez, too many teams have seen QBs step in immediately and play well. Considering Clausen played in a pro style offense, expect someone to trade up for him, if he gets past washington.
-Very unlikely the 49ers give up on ASmith already. He came on strong at the end of last season, and all the 49ers are talking about is how this will be the first time he's had the same OC 2 years in a row and how OLine is the top priority.
-Maurkice Pouncey is a G/C, not an OT and ADavis makes more sense for Pitt than Pouncey
-Way too low for Spiller, he won't get past the Giants, outside chance of going to Seattle at #6 if Okung, Suh and McCoy are gone
-If Spiller goes before the Giants pick, they'll take Ryan Matthews
As far as our pick goes, releasing Flo will not effect our first round pick. Free will be the LT, Colombo will be the RT and Brewster will back him up. I suspect in the 4th round or so, we'll take a tackle that projects to LT. If ADavis is the pick, it's because he can play guard as a rookie and then move to LT or RT if needed to in the future.
Clausen wont go to the Bills because of the fact that he does not have a strong arm and they already got a weak armed QB in Brian Brohm. Im not confident the Giants will take Spiller. The Bills need a WR and Bryant is the top on the board, they got Lee Evans and no one worth the minimum NFL salary. Even everyones favorite QB in Peyton Manning couldn't win in Buffalo with Lee Evans and nobody. If Clausen is there and the 49ers pass on him, he will freefall to the Cardinals of the Vikings and since it looks rediculous putting him that far down since I believe someone would tradeup, i put him at #13.
If Clausen is there at #9, I think the Bills will take him. As far as arm strength goes, Clausen has a live arm. Is he JaMarcus Russell or even Matthew Stafford, no. But he's not Brady Quinn.
Mark my words, quote me on it if you want, but the Giants will take a RB in round 1, unless Spiller and Matthews are gone. Possibly RMcClain, if he's available, but I'm betting on RB.
The Bills may have no depth at WR, but o-line and QB are bigger needs, with better valued players. Again, quote me on this, they're going in one of these 2 directions. Even Dan Williams who you have going to the Giants at #15 is a better fit for Buffalo, cause they're running a 3-4 now. And FWIW, they can get a WR in round 2 cause in your on mock, as well as most others 1 WR (sometimes 2) are going in round 1
I've read that he is a fit as an ILB in a 34.
I hope Spiller is gone when they pick.
going to have to update this a bit in line of the trade
Frees the LT. Davis won't fall that far. Give Dallas Tate. In that situation a trade down is the most likely situation, but I know you can't do that in the mock. But Davis is by no means a 'lock' at that pick. We need Guards, not tackles. Everyone who's expecting a tackle day 1 is going to be dissapointed IMO.
If Davis falls, I believe he will be the pick if not I believe we will tradedown for an early second and early third ( a team like the Browns) and grab Nate Allen in the early 2nd & Vladimir Ducasse with our 2nd round pick.
he'd make no sense. Frees the LT. Colombi RT. You don't select a player of his caliber to play backup. Guards, guards, and more guards. But I agree with the 2nd scenario.
Updated it, Davis is still the Cowboys selection. This time I tore the draft apart and completely redid it from the start.
