    Offense


    QB at 18 I think we could have the best one available (important for trade value as this is where they will start drawing attention, the combine may mess this up for us)
    WR at 18 I think we could have the third best Lee and Patterson gone
    RB at 18 I think we could have the best one available
    TE at 18 I think we could have the best one available
    FB at 18 I think we could have the best one available
    Center at 18 I think we could have the best one available
    Guard at 18 I think we could have the second best available Warmack goes just before us
    Tackle at 18 I think we could have the third best choice Joeckle and Fisher gone and possibly not in that order, Lane Johnson will be on deck for us


    Defense

    Safety at 18 I think we could have the best one available (Vaccaro debatable but with current data-set this is realistic)
    CB at 18 I think we could have the third best Millner and Banks/Williams/Rhodes gone do not have good feel for CB talent at this time
    LB at 18 I think we could have the third best Jarvis and Te'o probably gone I am on the tipping point with Pitt picking ahead of us
    DE at 18 we could have the third best best with Werner and Moore gone and Dion Jordan sliding down
    DT at 18 we could have the second best 3 technique Star L gone, and we could say the same for the 1 tech with Star gone.

    Where do you differ from what I see? I know only 12 players gone who makes up the additional 5 players before us? CB? QB is likely? Guard, Cooper? DT not sure who? TE?
    Anyone care to do a round two?

    More and more I'm hoping for Johnson. But I'm almost sure they'll go DL.

    I think he will be available at 18(just barely) and love his versatility and talent level. I thought this would be easy when I started and the last five players are difficult to envision. I concede the QB will make a huge difference after the combine.

    I agree completely they really have us fooled if they took Lane Johnson(may eventually be the best of the bunch at OT)

    I think you can count Barkevious Mingo as gone too...though there have been rumblings.
    And yes, a QB (probably Geno Smith) will go before us rather he deserves it or not.
    Probably one WR--Patterson?--will be gone.
    Probably Vaccaro or Cooper

    That gets you thru 17.

    That still leave
    Richardson
    Jordan
    Floyd
    Lane
    Ansah
    Hankins
    Vaccaro or Cooper
    Eifert
    etc

    If there's no impact player or instant starter there then that's my guess. Trade down and pick up a 3 or 4.

    Cool thread idea.

    Right now, I'm hoping we end up with Johnson (can't rely on Parnell as our starter) or one the DTs.

    A guard at 18 doesn't interest me unless it's Warmack. A trade down to get Cooper or Warford would be alright though.

    Biggest obstacle to trading down is the Rams who have two picks in the same vicinity. Likely to be easier (have to give up less) to trade with them IMO.

    When you have to think about all the talent choices before us, it is hard not to think about the trade factor and the talent still available at 18-32. I do think the run starts on the Dline and DE about our pick(actually with Pitt at 17), and hopefully the QB wanting/needing teams start to get nervous.

    My man!!! Not many people around here on the Floyd wagon.

    I think he is and should be our #1 target. I don't think he lasts until 18 though. I think he's the 2nd DT off the board.

    I've seen several mock drafts that have Vaccaro in the top 10 (occasionally top 5). Not that I agree with these drafts, but I do think this guy's stock will rise quite a bit before the draft and we won't have a chance to grab him.

    My fear is if Geno Smith starts to fall, Jerry starts to call.

    In some people's minds, Geno will have to RISE to get to 18.
    I think you can rest easy.

    You have to assume he'll go before 18 with the sparse QB class at the top.
    If he goes at 3 or higher, that is a huge reach, imo.

    That is crazy talk.Vaccarro is not even half as good as Earl thomas who went 14th in the draft.

    Good luck trying to figure out any sort of mock. With the new CBA, teams are not afraid to trade up like they used to be.

    I think three tackles will be gone, someone will trade up to get Johnson.

    I think Floyd will be gone, either drafted by a team before us or someone trades up.

    I think either Floyd, Short or Cooper will be the pick if we stay at 18.

    I'm o.k. with any one of these 3 at 18 as of today. All fill a need as well.
