    Decided it might be fun to see how the draft may go with either Poe or DeCastro as our first pick. I don't mock with trades, so don't let the fact that I'm picking both at 14 put you too far out.

    For both drafts, these are my reasonable key free agents:
    Terrell Thomas, CB - He's still flying completely under the radar.
    Anthony Spencer, OLB - Yeah, trust me, I know.
    Laurent Robinson, WR - If the price is right, bring him back.

    The DeCastro Mock

    Round 1 - David DeCastro, OG, Stanford
    There's probably a reason the saying isn't, "Take the best player available, unless he's a guard."

    Round 2 - Harrison Smith, SS, Notre Dame
    Mayock and Deion slobbered all over the guy and we happen to have a big need at SS, that's mostly gone ignored.

    Round 3 - Josh Robinson, CB, Central Florida
    Ran a monstrous 4.33 at the combine and has special teams value.

    Round 4 - Phillip Blake, C, Baylor
    Ben Jones is still my favorite C in the draft, but Blake represented himself well. Would have liked to see more bench reps.

    Round 5 - Akiem Hicks, DE, Regina
    Had an okay combine, but I still like him as a DE. Weighed in less than I expected, which is a good thing.

    Round 6 - James Hanna, TE, Oklahoma
    Right now, probably more athlete than tight end but we can make that work.

    Round 7 - Miles Burris, OLB, San Diego State
    I had to get my pet cat in here, he had a fantastic combine. I don't even think he'll be available in the 7th at this point. 6'2' 246lbs, 31 reps, 37.5 vert, 10.01 vert but didn't do agility drills.

    The Poe Mock

    Round 1 - Dontari Poe, NT/DE, Memphis
    Put on a heck of a display in Indy. Still has his detractors, and perhaps rightly, but the whole "he doesn't get sacks" thing is beyond ridiculous.

    Round 2 - Amini Silatolu, OG, Midwestern State
    One of my Top 3 guard prospects, and honestly, I may prefer him to Glenn.

    Round 3 - George Iloka, SS, Boise State
    showed great at the combine. Mayock talked about how good his hips were, especially for a guy his size.

    Round 4 - Phillip Blake, C, Baylor
    Blake makes sense at this point, regardless of who we take in the 1st.

    Round 5 - Evan Rodriguez, H-Back, Temple
    With the way we like to use our TE's, Rodriguez stands a real chance at contributing immediately. Had a pretty good combine.

    Round 6 - Donnie Fletcher, CB, Boston College
    Good at a lot of things but not great at anything. Fletcher has good size at 6'1" and pretty decent ball skills, unfortunately he was part of a terrible defense.

    Round 7 - Miles Burris, OLB, San Diego State
    My pet makes a return in the Poe mock. Did I mention I like him?

    I think I prefer the DeCastro mock. Thoughts?

    The Decastro draft would give me a little giddy.

    I like them both, I think I'd prefer the DeCastro mock.

    Also, love that your picks are similar to who I like in the draft. Burris especially. I like that guy. Special points for selecting the Canadians, Hicks and Blake.

    Prefer the DeCastro mock. You forgot your comp picks too.

    I'd prefer to sign a veteran center in free agency and not plan on a 4th round rookie starting at center.

    To be honest, I have no idea what they are at this point. I thought 6th but some have 4th? I think I'll just wait for them to be announced, hopeful for a 4th.

    Love the DeCastro mock. Add Matt Daniels or Aaron Corp with the comp pick, and it's almost perfect.
