Actually the ovie you are looking for is Billy Madison.
I will now reward you with zero points.
Still no points for you
Couple Dallas Mocks
1. Dwayne Bowe - WR LSU
2. Johnathan Wade - CB Tennessee
3. Alan Barbre- OT Missouri Southern St
4. Brian Robinson - OLB Texas
5. Kareem Brown - DT Miami
6a. Dan Stantucci - OG Notre Dame
6b. Dustin Fry - C Clemson
7a. Le'ron Mclain - FB Alabama
7b. Justin Medlock - K UCLA
Mock 2 (all picks the same except)
1. Anthony Spencer - OLB Purdue
4. Chris Davis - WR FSU
I love it, both ways - although I wonder if we'd like a shot at Gonzales (WR) in the second?
My Mock Draft is as good as it gets
Round 1-WR-Dwayne Jarret(USC)
Round 2-OLB-Quentin Moses(Georgia)
Round 3-CB-Courtney Brown(Cal-Poly) or Usama Young(Kent State)
Round 4-OG/T-Allen Barbre(Missouri Southern)
Round 5-NT-Walter Thomas(NW Mississippi JC)
Round 6-OT-Jermon Bushrod(Townson State)
Round 6-OLB-Jacob Ford(Central Arkansas)
Round 7-FB-Jessie Allen(Virginia Tech)
Round 7-OC/G-Kyle Young(Fresno State)
This mock stays true to your board and you don't reach for any player.
Does Jarrett have the speed to seperate? I am not sure.
i wouldn't be disappointed with the Jarrett pick...he doesn't separate that well against WR's all the time, but looking at some of his highlights, this guy just makes plays in big game situations. I think he has game speed which is something you can't teach or measure! Plus he would be entering an offense similar to USC just because of the fact he will have so much talent around him. So Jarrett could make an immediate impact, especially if Owens or Glenn go down.
Not really sure about the Moses pick...he had a pretty mediocre senior year and i don't know what other LB's would be on the board at this point. I'de rather see someone like Anthony Spencer or even LaMarr Woodley come off the board for the Cowboys.
I like the Courtney Brown pick, I'm not sure if the 3rd round would be a tad of a reach, wouldn't disappoint me though. Don't know much about Usama Young.
Love the Barbre pick. Obviously we're interested in this guy and it's almost certain we'll draft him.
Kinda weary of Walter Thomas. HUGE guy and probably perfect for the 34, but he has character and work ethic issues. This guy is a project I think.
Can't really comment on the rest of them because I don't know much about them except Kyle Young. Good pick to be the swing guy for C/G.
Not bad at all.
Quinten Moses might not even go on day one, let alone rd two...I wouldnt mind Jarrett, but I think he can be had later than 22
1. to the board.
2. Your quote above is all I read. Couldn't go any further. Don't be insulted. My mom could put out a mock and I wouldn't read it either.
Nice mock. I personally don't think I want 5 of my first 7 picks to be from small schools playing lesser competition. Seems too much to ask all of them to pan out.
Besides the first three picks who will need to contribute this year. After the first three all are the other picks are for 2008 and beyond. Jarret can play right away. Moses even though he had a subpar senior year is a threat on the edge and Courtney Brown can work his way into the nickel by years end. This guy has speed and some ability
Like small schools? How in the world do you, or could you know anything about the players at these small schools? I don't mean that as bad as it probably sounds, but man....If so, hats off to you for doing homework!
Jarrett in the first frightens me
Not sure if I am frightened, but nervous for sure!
Look at Jarrett's numers vs. any other receiver not named Calvin Johnson because he is a whole another story. Regarding the small schools, I don't care where they play but what potential they have at the next level and hope it translate to the pro's. Jerry Rice(Goat) Miss. Valley and our own Larry Allen arguably one of the best guards of all time Sonoma State, never heard of it in my life. I know those are two extreme example but true.
Oh, I have no doubt that you can find talent at small schools, but to have that many in the mock I just don't see how anyone could know that much about them. If you do....I hear ya!
Jay Moore DE Nebraska
Jay is a sleeper DE in this draft. He has excellent size, strength, speed and burst to play his position. He does a very good job defending against the run and looks to be a good teammate. Jay has an excellent burst off the line of scrimmage to rush the QB and if he chose to, he could blow by just about any O-lineman at the college level; however, to his credit, he played within the scheme of the defensive system and was more interested in playing his assignment than freelancing and making flashy looking plays. Jay has the potential to be an impact DE for the team that drafts him.
NEEDS TO IMPROVE
Jay has two issues he needs to address: 1) he needs more confidence in his talent and 2) he needs a coach to bring out leadership qualities that are hidden away in Jay because he is such a good teammate and doesn’t want to rock the boat, so to speak. Of course he needs to learn better techniques and yada, yada, yada, get bigger and stronger, but that is the normal stuff that we all know about already.
TALENT BOARD ROUND: 1
Jay has enormous potential, but because he was on a team with Adam Carriker, I feel he was willing to take a second chair, which caused him to be overlooked by most people who were looking at the other side of the D-line to watch Adam. When I do my consulting work and seminars, I always use this analogy when trying to teach someone my system: when you see an outstanding player on the defensive line or offensive line, make sure you look at the player who plays the same position on the opposite side of the line. In most cases, you’ll find a player who may be just as good or better than the player everyone else is raving about. Last year, I told you all to look at the player on the other side of the defense from Mario Williams because he was a very good player. Manny Lawson has done a pretty good job for the team that drafted him; when I wrote my profile of him and rated him as a 1st round talent, no one had noticed Manny. Now I’m telling you that Jay is as good a talent as Adam is and no one has noticed him either. When he gets to the Senior Bowl and starts to workout, everyone is going to see some talents that have been hidden away because the kid is an excellent teammate. Jay will be able to play either side of the line, but I think if a team is smart, they will put him on the strong side and leave him there because he is an excellent all around talent against the run and at rushing the passer.
