Mock Draft That Will Build Quinn's Defense

Recommended Posts

1) Bucs - Jameis Winston QB Florida State

2) Titans - Leonard Williams DL USC

3) Jaguars - Dante Fowler Jr. LEO Florida

4) Raiders - Amari Cooper WR Alabama

5) Redskins - Vic Beasley OLB Clemson

6) Jets - Randy Gregory OLB Nebraska

7) Bears - Shane Ray OLB Missouri

! TRADE ! - Eagles trade 1st and 2nd round draft picks for Falcons 1st round pick

1) Eli Harold LEO Virginia - Harold has arguabley one of the highest ceilings in the draft, added to a chiseled frame with great size and athleticism. He was a 5 star recruit and will be a better pro than college player. Harold stands at 6'3" and a hair under 250. He has long arms and a deadly first step. He has fluid hips and oozes potential. Harold has been very productive in his college career, and often took on double teams. Harold would give Quinn the much needed speed and athleticism he can mold into his perfect LEO. Harold is still very young, and just beginning to scratch the surface. Turns his hips well and sets the edge consistently. Harold has that 'it' factor and would be a scary piece for this up and coming defense.

2) Marcus Peters CB Washington - Yes, Peters has his character concerns. Atlanta would be an ideal situation for the former Huskey. Not only does he fit Quinn's scheme perfectly, but he is a long corner that would compliment his former teammate, Desmond Trufant. This would allow us to have two 6 foot CB's that can run with the best WR's, and move Alfordbto the slot, his more natural position. This would give us a very promising 1-2-3 at the CB position.

2) Shaq Thompson LB/S Washington- When you listen to what Quinn looks for in a linebacker, you can't help but check all the boxes with Thompson. He is deadly fast and natural instincts to close the gaps and shed blocks. Thompson would give us the true 'playmaker' at LB we have been lacking for years. Dude eats, sleeps, and breathes football. He would also give us the 3rd S/hybrid LB that Quinn often utilizes on passing downs. Reminds me so much of Lavonte David.

3) Phillip Dorsett WR Miami (FL) - Ever since Julio arrived, we have lacked that second weapon that could completely take the top off the defense. It would give us a long term answer to life after Roddy, and would add a whole other dimension to this already talented offense.

4) Cody Prewitt FS Ole Mississippi - A natural ball hawk that simply loves the game of football. He has the size, speed, and coverage skills to he a potential pro bowler under the tutelage of Dan Quinn and Raheem Morris. He is a leader among men and is a jack of all trades.

5) Max Valles DE Virginia - Another cavalier selected, and another Cavalier with unlimited potential. He has a large frame at 6'5" 251 lbs. and has only played 2 years of college ball. Granted, he led a defense in sacks that is littered with NFL prospects. Another player that we have shown interest in, and has all the physical tools Quinn looks for. Get him some top notch coaching from a DLine guru like Quinn, and he may be a very nice pick up in the 5th, and the potential long term answer at DE. Extremely young and gifted.

6) Shaq Mason OG Georgia Tech - A perfect for the ZBS that we are implementing. Mason is a smaller guard at just 6'1", but don't let his size fool you. He is very athletic and onebofbthe best drive blockers in the entire draft. Would compete with Baker for the starting LG spot, and potentially the long term answer in between Jake and Hawley.

7) Jalston Fowler FB Alabama - If you watch Fowler, you will see plenty of similarities between him and Snelling. If you also are familiar with Shanahan, he actually enjoys utilizing a versatile FB.

7) Michael Dyer RB Auburn/Louisville - Once upon a time, Dyer was spoken in the same sentence with Gurley and Lattimore. Some character concerns have led him down a path where he might not even be drafted. At the combine, he still displayed the quickness and strength that made him such a hot commodity a few years back. I see Devonta being the workhorse back, but could also see Dyer being the thunder to Devonta's lightning. We would have a formidable 1-2 punch at RB, with Antone playing the x-factor Sproles role.
