Here is volume 2!
Trying out a couple of different names than most of the other mocks. Once again, this is with NO TRADE UPS or TRADE DOWNS.
Round 1, Pick 26: Lorenzo Carter, EDGE, Georgia:
6'5, 250, with athletic comparisons to JaDeveon Clowney, Jordan Willis, Danielle Hunter. Once again, Taven doesn't fall to us at 26. Neither does Payne. We still find a way to bolster this defensive front, and prepare for the eventuality that we may not be able to retain Vic with a looming payday. You can never have too many guys willing to come off the edge, and should something happen to Vic or Takk, here is your guy ready to be called upon.
Round 2, Pick 58: Nathan Shepherd, DT, Fort Hays State:
Here is your big ugly next to Grady Jarrett. 6'5 , 315 lbs, He can definitely get up the field and rush the passer, which is what we need. This is a slight reach , but due to us picking late round 2 , he wont be there for us at pick 90, so we take him here.
Round 3, Pick 90: Duke Ejiofor, DE , Wake Forest:
We missed out on Michael Bennett in FA, so here we go with a rookie in hopes of slotting him in on the line. He's very mature when it comes to pass rushing and sets up moves . Not the best athlete but his handwork and moves make up for what he lacks in getting to the qb.
Round 4 , Pick 126: Antonio Callaway, WR, Florida:
He made it over to this mock, because i like the player that much, and I feel that by the time the draft hits in 2 weeks, we will have to select him here. He's that Good, just the character issues bog him down. Comparisons in skill set to Antonio Brown, but hangs with the wrong crowd. Quinn gets the inside scoop from his Florida connects, and green-lights this pick. Who better to help him along the way than Veterans Julio Jones and Mohammed Sanu? Could end up busting out of the league, but due to who we have and who he will learn under this may be the steal of the draft in a few seasons.
Round 6, Pick 200: Kameron Kelly, DB , San Diego State:
Switched over from the Safety position to corner after we selected Kazee last year and converted quite nicely. Stands tall at 6'2 . This would allow for Alford to slide down and cover the slot in nickel situations. For whatever reason, he has been sliding back down the boards, so he is a good catch here at pick 200.
Rd 7, Pick 244: Bo Scarborough, RB Alabama
Im not sure why he isn't getting much buzz, but hopefully this lasts til the draft. He can make an immediate impact for us this year, and next if Teco leaves. Blazing fast for his size, draws, comps to Derrick Henry. Sign me up for Bo. I would also look at him in round 6!
Round 7, Pick 256: John Atkins, NT , UGA
Going local for the final pick of the draft, could develop as a NT down the road.
Let me know what you think!
