Obviously, any mock draft prior to FA signings and the combines is mere speculation, but that doesn't prevent it from being fun. 1a. Reggie Smith, CB/S, Oklahoma - We need help at CB and S so why not kill two birds with one stone? Talented junior projects at either position and is a good value here. 1b. Tracy Porter, CB, Indiana - Whoa, shades of the 2000 draft? Our defense's greatest weakness happens to be this draft's strongest positionso why not take advantage of it? Porter is super fast, makes plays on the ball and actually intercepts them, and is aggressive in the running game. What's there not to like? 2. Devin Thomas, WR, Michigan St. - Possesses excellent size and speed and makes place with the ball a la you know who. Has the potential to develop into a solid number 1 receiver after some seasoning and should be able to contribute immediately as a number 3 should Glenn not return and Stanback not live up to his billing. Good place to draft a WR in my opinion. 3. Darnell Savage, RB, Oklahoma St. - One thing Parcells left us with is a lack of team speed. Savage is very fast, can be an every down back if need be, and is good at catching the ball out of the backfield. I know, I know, Mendenhall, Stewart, et al. look very attractive in the first round, but with MBIII about to sign a fat contract I think it's likely we look for a compliment in rounds 2 or 3. I think Savage would provide some much-needed speed and homerun potential in the backfield. 4. Ezra Butler, OLB, Nevada - Most people are clamoring for ILB to replace Akin but we already have Burnett and Carpenter. I like Butler for his ability to get to the QB and speed to cover receivers in the short passing game. He can back up Ware and compete for one of the ILB spots in a year or two. 5. Shannon Tevaga, OG, ULCA - I'm unhappy with our inconsistent running game so it's time to bring in some beefy interior linemen to see if they can help remedy the problem. Kosier has been a nice FA pick up but we need to get bigger and more physical in that guard position. Hopefully, Tevaga, who has been a fixture on the Bruins like for the past three seasons, will provide that in a year or so. 6. Robbie Krutilla, C, Western Michigan - Was anyone frightened when Gurode went down? Krutilla is a very big man who we might as well bring in to audition for a back-up C. 3-year starter. 7. Marcus Harrison, DT, Arkansas - Out for the year with a knee injury. Jerry takes a chance in the hopes that he finds another Canty.
