Mock Draft

 Share

Recommended Posts

I did this mock exactly two weeks ago right when I got suspended and tried to post it but that is when I found out about my suspension. I left it as is so I could get you guys' critique.

Resign:

Brent Grimes

Jason Snelling

Justin Blalock (High Tender)

Tony Gonzalez (unless we win SB)

Stephen Nicholas

Coy Wire

This scenario I think we let both Clabo and Dahl go due to age, price, and the high possibility of gaining 3rd round comp picks for both. Let Mike Johnson step in for Dahl and bring Valdez up to compete/back-up Johnson

1. Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue

Ryan Kerrigan is one of the most unblockable players in this years draft. Is constantly double and triple teamed and is still able to make an impact. Wins almost every 1v1 match-up. Would make a dominant LE to go with our very good group of DTs. Is stout against the run. Reminds me a lot of Robert Mathis. Relentless.

2. Marcus Gilbert, OT, UF

I think with the passing of Clabo in this situation makes us rebuild with a younger line to grow with Ryan. Gilbert is a really good RT. Really studies to get better. Protected the blindside of Tebow. With the coaching of our OL coach, Gilbert could become a Pro-Bowl RT.

3. Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, OSU

Many will shun Rodgers due to his size but look at what happened to those who passed on Ray Rice. The kid is just a straight up playmaker. Although he is 5’7, he is basically 200 lbs. That is identical to Rice and MJD. This would be the homerun hitter in the backfield we seriously need. Can’t be covered by LBs. Pretty decent blocker for his size. Serious match-up problem and doesn’t have a real injury history.

4. Cecil Shorts III, WR, Mount Union

This kid is a problem. Period. He is the only person on the team and still can’t be stopped. Averaged 1,610 yards and +20 TDs even with Garcon there. 6 feet, 200 lb, 4.4 speed. Great measurables and it truly translated to the field. Would give Ryan a fourth significant weapon for his no huddle offense. Would even push Douglas to get his act together (even though I just think this is a down year for him due to the injury)

5. Casey Matthews, LB Oregon

We need depth at not only LB, but ST the way they struggled early on. Matthews has great bloodlines but may not be Clay Matthews. You know you will get a relentless motor and tremendous effort. Not bad for a 5th round special teams player.

6. Devon Torrence, CB, OSU

Tall, physical corner standing at 6-1 193 lbs and 4.4 speed. Good for competition and possibly could be stashed on the PS as well.

7. Craig Marshall, DE, USF

6’5 260 DE. Came behind JPP and Selvie. Didn’t produce too much but who else is on USF this year? Would make a decent PS player. Has a good initial burst, decent hand use and balance. Hawkeye did a thread on him a while ago and it received no conversation but I think putting him on the PS would allow us to do the same thing that we are doing with Valdez.

7. J.T. Thomas, LB, WVU

Strictly ST. Runs in the 4.6 range. Replace Bear Woods’ spot on the PS. Not much to say about Thomas. Could be a PS to just a camp body.

7. Bryant Browning, OG, OSU

Could replace Valdez on the PS. Just a big body who could potentially be molded into a decent back-up (we only have one back-up OG)

*This mock was done 2 weeks ago after I was put on suspension, I just wanted to still post it since I put my precious time into it. Ironic that A-Town had us signing Mathis in his mock and I see RK as a similar type player. More than likely will create another one given the success of the last two weeks, just wanted feedback on this one. Obviously now Clabo has basically played his way to being resigned so he isn't going anywhere.

I like Gilbert, but he is not my favorite if we go T in round 2

I love your late picks...Matthews could be great, I love Ohio State, so love the Torrence and Browning picks and Thomas may have more potential than most think...good mock

Thanks. He is my favorite RT that would be there though. I like Carimi a lot but I don't think he drops to late second. But the good thing is that something has clicked for Clabo making our OT situation more than fine. I think Dahl is gone as his pass protection struggles due to slow recognizing late blitzes.

I agree, if we let an Olineman go it would be Dahl...Blalock is younger and is good on the left side...Clabo leads the run blocking to the right side, without him Turner would get no where

another guy that may be there in round 2 is Pinkston from Pitt, he has potential to be a LT, but can be a great RT

what did you get put on suspension for?

how is kerrigan anything like Mathis? Not seeing your logic there.

Profane language.

But Kerrigan is like Mathis, both have relentless motors, love the sack-fumble, play well at LE, stout against the run but can still get the quarterback.

Is this the only thing you caught from the whole mock?

Kerrigan has had at most 2 FF in one year. Not exactly alot. Plus Mathis is infinitely more athletic than Kerrigan.

not really alot to say other than what I already said. It's a good mock. Although I think we would be better served getting an OT that can play either side.

I don't see Matthews lasting until round 5.

Good thing I don't look to you for reassurance. It amazes me that the last 2 mocks I put up you find one thing to b.tch about. Last time it was Pettis, this time Kerrigan. Give me a major flaw in Kerrigan's game that makes doesn't make him a viable option.

Also, Marcus Gilbert has been moved to LT this season just in case you didn't know.

I'm just saying the comparison to Mathis is ludicrous.

Besides, I never said he was not a viable option. (unless we prefer a speed type rusher over one who is more of a high effort pass rusher)

I was aware and based on what i've seen from him he wouldn't be good there in the NFL.

If you can't take criticism I wouldn't recommend putting these drafts up.

If we draft a Guard the one guy I like the most that can be gotten late is RG Ricky Henry from Nebraska. Dude

is a beast. They have their guards pulling a lot and him and Keith Williams(who is also good) get out there

and it's **** to pay for whoever is in the way. Good with pass protection too. He is nasty. If you haven't

seen him you really need to.

yea I haven't seen him. sounds like he would make a great developmental pick.

@kennesaw - if there was an OT in this draft that played both LT/RT equally well, do you think they would drop to the late 2nd? I can take criticism that was the reason for me putting it up (if you read the disclaimer). You basically only have an issue with MY opinion of RK reminding ME of Mathis which is even more ludicrous.

Probably not. So take the LT who can be a great RT as well. Their are tons of good linemen that will fall.

Didn't say you couldn't but you seem to get all upset about it when it really isn't that big a deal.

how is that ludicrous? I'm saying I don't see the similarity. Either way I'll be interested to see what kind of a DE we grab. (motor or speed)

We can agree to disagree

I honestly think we are going to take a motor player since we are really interested in Bailey and he isn't a speed rusher. I truly think Sid is our speed rusher but is just caught up in a numbers game. I posted on ESPN that I see us taking a DE first, moving JA98 to full-time DT duty, and dropping Chauncey Davis and Trey Lewis. Although Sid was the starter the other game and still didn't play, the main focus was to stop the run which is what JA98 and Davis excel at a lot more than Sidbury (not saying that he isn't good but when you know Steven Jackson is going to get the ball 30 times in the game, why play a pass rush specialist?). The fact that they even made him the starter on paper shows who they have faith in more between Sid and Davis.

Good mock man. I think we could wait a little longer on OT seeing as how our line has really stepped up. I would swap the RB and CB picks as well. We can get a decent late round RB scat back, but I think we need some true competition at CB. Good job though man

Thanks. Yea I know that now (referring to the OT) but two weeks ago, a RT in the 2nd would not have been a bad thought. To be honest, I don't think we would wait until the 6th to address change of pace back. Not many would be available that would be worth much. Rodgers is a very good and tough jitterbug type of player that can line up anywhere and cause match-up problems. I don't think our secondary is much of a problem. Our corners are very good it is just our safeties are very young. Maybe a new nickel and phase Owens out but I would wait until the 3rd-4th range and take a flier on a guy like Davon House from New Mexico St.

I am watching the NFL Replay right now and our safeties are fine they are just slow to react. You could see Moore had a hunch more times than not as to what the play was, he was just unsure. Also, his blitzing skills are the best on the team and will only get better with time.
