Let's get to the point. 2013 Mock Off-Season Release/Retire: - Tony Gonzales - Todd McClure (if doesn't retire sign him for vet min.) - Tony Gonzales - Michael Turner - Brent Grimes - Peria Jerry - Luke McCown - Antone Smith - Mike Cox - Will Svitek - Lawrence Sidbury - Chris Hope - Dominique Franks - Garrett Reynolds Resign: - William Moore - Vance Walker - Sam Baker - Chris Owens - Robert McClain (RFA) Restructure: - Dunta Robinson Free Agent Signings: - Michael Johnson, DE - Reggie Bush, RB 2013 NFL Draft: - Trade Back: We trade our first for an early 2nd rounder and an early 4th rounder. 2. Larry Warford, OG Kentucky - We finally grab our RG of the future with this pick, and is it surprising? If we did no acquire a DE via free agency, I would be tempted to take a DE here instead. Warford is a dominant right guard, and will vastly improve our passing and run game over the next some odd years. He was shutting down some of the best during the Senior Bowl, and over the few seasons, has shut down some of the best defensive tackles in the SEC, no brainer here. I would even take him with our first at this point (depending on FA). 2. Brandon Williams, DT Missouri Southern - Brandon Williams is just a strong defensive tackle who can collapse the pocket, command double teams, and defend the run very well. I also believe Williams could potentially be a 3-4 NT, which could further elevate our ability to run a hybird defense. The guy weighs an astounding 340 pounds, but doesn't look it at all. He is very strong and stout, huge upside player. 3. Robert Alford, CB Southeast Louisiana - Robert alford may not be here, but this is such a deep CB class that I believe he will make it to this pick. Robert Alford is a straight up play maker. Also flying around the ball, with great instincts and fluidity. He can play both man and zone coverage almost as good as anyone in this draft. I believe he could play Nickle and also play on the outside. Him and McClain will be our future at the CB position. He also adds value as a return specialist. 4. Marquise Goodwin, WR Texas - Olympian, that is all that needs to be said. I am honestly hoping he makes it to this pick, but he could fly up the boards after the combine. Goodwin was solid all week at the Senior Bowl, and was very underrated at Texas. He is a fast reciever who can play in the slot come day one. He has the deep threat and play making ability that we can use to supplement the departure of Tony Gonzales. Thanks to this WR class, I believe he will fall more than he would in another draft class. He also adds value as a return specialist. 4. Gavin Escobar, TE San Diego State University - One of the more underrated TEs in this draft. Gavin has great length, catch radius, atheleticism, and hands. He can stretch the field, and make all of the tough catches. He may not be the fastest tight end, but he is one of the smartest, and toughest. He also is a willing blocker. If he is not available, I would select Vance McDonald here. 4. Sio Moore, LB UConn - This could possibly be one of the biggest sleepers in the draft. Sio Moore is more of an outside backer, but has the ability to move anywhere. He could help us tremendously in pass coverage, as he is one of the best, if not the best coverage linebacker out there. In a lot of ways, he reminds me of Bobby Wagner. With Dent coming along nicely, I believe we can use Moore as a replacement for Nicholas. He can also rush the passer and has played all over for UConn's defense. He will be a steal for someone this draft. 5. Lonnie Pryor, RB/FB Florida State - Another huge sleeper pick; Lonnie is a do it all kind of a back. He started out as a RB for Florida State but switched the FB for the sake of the team. He is a team player and will do anything to help them. Although he is playing FB now, I can see him switching to RB in the NFL, and I believe that's his best position. Lonnie is a down hill runner, deceptively fast, and breaks tackles like there's no tomorrow. He is a tough, tough runner, reminds me of a Jason Snelling except a little faster. 6. Mike Catapano, DE Princeton - My third sleeper of the draft, Mike Catapano. Just because he is from an Ivy School, don't let him fool you. He is very quick off the snap, and is a relentless pass rusher, and block shedder. He is very good in the running game and even better when rushing the passer. He had an excellent week at the East-West Shrine game, and turned the heads of several people. He may actually go sooner than this, but as of now he is still flying under the radar. I believe he can at least be a rotational guy, if not a potential starter, that's how good he is. 7. Josh Evans, S Florida - I honestly didn't know who to take here. I was looking at Zeke Motta but apparently he has flown up the boards. So here I will go with a very, very underrated safety, who often gets overshadowed by his fellow safety. Josh Evans is a guy who can be groomed to be a starter, and also replace William Moore in case he gets hurt...again. ______________________________ So I hope you enjoyed it and actually read my reasons. I wrote this in about 10 minutes, so it is not as detailed as I would like, but if you have any questions, I have scouted these prospects heavily and will gladly answer questions and respond to criticism. I tried to make this as real as possible, but I know players will rise and fall so take it for what it's worth. I believe we will find a way to clear enough cap space to sign to solid FAs, and I also believe they will be available.
