New Mock Draft


Recommended Posts

In this mock Beasley, Ray, and Fowler are all gone. While I am no fan of Gregory, I would say he reminds me of Manny Lawson, I still think he will be the pick. My reasons I think he will likely be the pick unless something great happens and Fowler, Ray, or Beasley drops, is because it is a long needed position and someone has to be taken for it.

While Gregory isn't great at pass rushing, he's decent and has value as a run stopper. So he is definitely the #8 pick on this mock.

1st Round Pick

Randy Gregory DE 6'5" 235lbs Nebraska


My second round pick will come as a surprise to many, many of you already know where I stand here. I like Phillip Dorsett here. This covers any need for an additional offensive weapon to be used in any manner needed for this offense. That includes KR and PR. He may actually be available in the 3rd, but I see no point in risking it.

2nd Round Pick

Philip Dorsett WR 5'10" 185lbs Miami


This third pick is a thankful thing. I know the argument rages on on how badly we need a MLB. With Durant and Reed, I see no point in getting in a hurry to make changes. All else, we can look into it next year. I think we may not need to though. Instead I am going with David Cobb. He's a hammer and a perfect match to the scheme, as well as a good match with Freeman and Smith.

3rd Round Pick

David Cobb RB 5'11" 229lbs Minnesota


Right here, I know it seems I am loading up on offense. Where is the FS, LB, DT, additional DE, CB, SS, whatever else. Here we are. Eskridge is big and fast. Definitely the type of player you want on your team competing with Godfrey, Southward, and Kemal. I think after a year or two, he may be able to start. He can even give you a little something extra if Moore goes down. Yeah, Kemal is the back-up SS, but insurance is a great thing.

4th Round Pick

Durrell Eskridge Safety 6'3" 208lbs Syracuse


This next pick is the pick that free's it all up. RB, FB, TE, H-Back, has lined up and caught passes at WR too. Not saying he should play WR, but he is an offensive weapon. DiMarco would be walking shortly after such a pick.

5th Round Pick

Jalston Fowler FB 5'11" 254lbs Alabama


This is not about Bama love. This fanbase would love Fowler and my next pick can really help the team on ST's. Not only that, he is a serious thumper. If needed he can hold the fort until next year's draft and still keep for great competition. He sheds blocks on his own and loves fighting 300 pound guys. He's only projected in the 6th round because he is bad in coverage, which isn't really an issue in this style of defense.

6th Round Pick

Trey DePriest LB 6' 254lbs Alabama


I waited until late for an OG because it wasn't absolutely pressing to get one early with this guy sitting there in the seventh. Mark Glowinski. Scouting this guy, his greatest weakness is his experience. He was a JUCO prospect. I looked around to see what others say about him, and even then he is not given negative remarks as a weakness. Also coming from West Virginia, he is already prepared for Zone Blocking.

7th Round Pick

Mark Glowinski OG/OT 6'4" 307lbs West Virginia


I always extend to UDFA's in my mocks as well. Please take a look at those before making a full decision. The stars point to players with major potential.

QB - *Terrance Broadway, RB - *Kenny Hilliard, *Terris Jones-Grigsby, FB - *Synjyn Days, WR - *Bud Sasser, *Chris Harper, TE - Gabe Holmes, OT - *Jermaine Barton, OG - *Quinton Spain, C - Jake Smith, DE - Tavaris Barnes, Deiontrez Mount, DT - Darius Kilgo, Bobby Richardson, LB - *Tony Washington, Michael Orakpo, *AJ Johnson, Michael Taylor, CB - Tray Walker, Tye Smith, *Cody Riggs, Safety - *Serderius Bryant, Ryan Murphy, Tony Bell

This is really close to how I would do the draft if I ran things. Not even so much the players, as the positions in the spots where they're deep.

DE

WR

RB

is how the draft sets up for value for me, so getting the best available at those 3 positions would be optimal. I'd love an OG and S in the first 3 also, but there are only so many picks.

I personally prefer a taller WR, but we need one of each (true slot, true outside to push Roddy to slot) over the next 2 years, so either would be great.

Think you covered the needs well, and actually looked at what they did in FA, so you knew you could wait on LB, etc.

Really hope it goes Beasley, Perriman/x/Dorsett, Langford/Cobb. But Beasley, or my early guys probably won't be there.

Haven't checked out your UDFA's, but I like your mock. I hope we don't end up with Gregory, but I hope we get somebody who can pass rush at #8. Phillip Dorsett would be a terrific addition to our receiver corps. We would never even miss HD if we got him. Also really like Cobb, agree with you he'd be a great complement to Freeman and Smith. Good job. Solid from top to bottom and I have no doubt when I research the UDFA's, they'll be just as good.

I want to love it because your probably my favorite poster but but, I just don't feel it. The one pick I love is the one you made out of necessity (Gregory)(I think he makes a very good pro especially in Quinns system). Overall, I think you address offense to early with the second and third pick, then pickup defense and oline guys that likely won't challenge for a roster spot.

I actually had Funchess at first, but I like the speed of Dorsett a bit better. Plus, I figured by adding Fowler it gives another big guy there. Plus I really think Sasser pans out. I really like that guy.

Same man. I hope we do something else. I just haven't really looked at it any other way. Going to do another one soon.

I appreciate the honesty bro. I'm not so certain I would even address the OL in this draft, but that OG...just wow. Look him up man.

Fan of Gregory but I don't think Dorsett is a good fit here. He excels very deep down field and Matt Ryan lacks zip on his deep balls. I think a really good route runner like Rashad Green would be a pickup in the 3rd round. He would complement Julio really well. Nice mock with new ideas is always refreshing. Good job!

Fair enough. I like the theme of it. And I'd be good with Dorsett...we'd actually see a guy open in space for once. I think a team needs one of those guys. I'm just extremely partial to the 6'2, 4.55 guy who catches everything...those guys are not sexy, but they eat up first downs. I want one of each...so you got me one of them. I'll have to check out Sasser...

I know what you mean. I took Dorsett just for the weapon. Sasser was the main weapon in Mizzou. Doesn't stack up to the best, or even Waller (my dude) but he is alright.

1st Round Pick

Randy Gregory DE 6'5" 235lbs Nebraska

I have a feeling Gregory will be our guy, but that evaluation...just don't like him at #8.

I'll take a look at that OG you wanted later on...solid mock.

In this mock, I am taking into account once more...the top guys are gone. Fowler, Ray, and Beasley. Having already done a mock with Gregory, this time I am looking at it from the POV of getting the best defensive player available rather than, best pass rusher. This may turn your head and you may dislike it early. Make sure to understand each pick and the benefit of the picks.

The first pick here is Trae Waynes. I know, we already have a top CB and drafted a guy in the second. The thinking here, is we now have two #1 CB's. Sloppy at first thought, but it stacks the situation as Waynes may actually give us the playmaking ballhawk we all desire.

1st Round Pick

Trae Waynes CB 6' 186lbs Michigan State


The next pick is absolutely a pass rusher. I have to say Danielle Hunter looks the best to me in the 2nd round. Pretty raw, but a bizarre athlete. Four percent body fat, 6'5" and 250lbs, crazy strong and fast. Just needs to learn to play the position. From my understanding he is better as a LB, but that in many ways makes him fantastic for LEO.

2nd Round Pick

Danielle Hunter OLB/DE 6'5" 252lbs LSU


Ali Marpet is the favorite at OG around here. I notice he is on a few mocks. Thing is, For the third pick I see value in John Miller out of Louisville. Why you ask? Higher level of competition, West Coast Offense, and Zone Blocking. Take a look at some of what makes him who he is. It would fit well here. I would bring him in at RG and move Asamoah to LG, just based on pro experience. Thing is, I doubt anyone would be disappointed.

3rd Round Pick

John Miller OG 6'2" 303lbs Louisville


Here in the 4th Round I knew for sure I wanted to go WR. I love Chris Conley and really wanted to pull the trigger, but Markus is just to interesting to pass up here. Markus lined up everywhere and this allows a ton of versatility here. We can place him inside on pass plays, LEO if Worrilow doesn't pan in the middle. Move either Reed or Durant in the middle and play Hunter outside. Like I said, he allows more versatility.

4th Round Pick

Markus Golden DE/OLB 6'2" 260lbs Missouri


Like some of you here I love big receivers, even in the slot. Its like having an additional TE. In this case the receiver CAN play TE if we need him to. Darren Waller. This guy is nearly 6'7" and runs a freakish sub 4.5 in the 40. Known mostly for blocking, he gives us security if Hankerson falls flat, plus another big option. Its a stretch being he is projected at 4-5 rounds, but we pick in the early 5th and he could be there. In all actuality, he could end up a FA, but I am only basing this on projections.

5th Round Pick

Darren Waller WR/TE 6'6" 238lbs Georgia Tech


When a FB runs a 4.6, has a 41 inch vert, and presses 225 all of 25 times you have to take notice. He can play FB, RB, ST's, and even be a goal line back at 223lbs. With Freeman and Smith, also DiMarco at FB, this is asolid pick for this season alone, but I would take note of the UDFA's at RB before panicking. Also Days at FB/RB could push DiMarco.

6th Round Pick

Zach Zenner FB/RB 5'11" 223lbs South Dakota State


While the first pick seems to free either Alford or Southward for FS and NB, a push doesn't hurt. Jarrett possesses the range, hard hitting, and toughness to play a Cover 3 safety. Could push for a NB job as well. Interesting player, was a lot of fun looking up on. He fell because of an injury, tweener status, and lack of man coverage ability, as well as having little speed for his size. Is known to be incredibly quick though.

7th Round Pick

Kyshoen Jarrett Safety 5'10" 200lbs Virginia Tech


I always extend to UDFA's in my mocks as well. Please take a look at those before making a full decision. The stars point to players with major potential.

QB - *Terrance Broadway, RB - *Kenny Hilliard, *Terris Jones-Grigsby, FB - *Synjyn Days, WR - *Bud Sasser, *Chris Harper, TE - Gabe Holmes, OT - *Jermaine Barton, OG - *Quinton Spain, C - Jake Smith, DE - Tavaris Barnes, Deiontrez Mount, DT - Darius Kilgo, Bobby Richardson, LB - *Tony Washington, Michael Orakpo, *AJ Johnson, Michael Taylor, CB - Tray Walker, Tye Smith, *Cody Riggs, Safety - *Serderius Bryant, Ryan Murphy, Tony Bell

My only concern with Collins is if he can play the free safety? He needs to cover a lot of ground and he is that kind of safety. According to Charles Davis who I like a lot Collins has more range that people give him credit for. He is not only a "in the box" kind of safety.

And I am actually as it stands now more concerned about the free safety postion than our pass rush. I actually believe that Schofield, Clayborn and Reed will do a good job in this scheme.

Realism. I may not be sold on him, but it looks as though he is the pick. Did you see the second one?

Yeah I would'nt have touched the secondary if I'm honest.

The secondary guy that has got me thinking in the 2nd or 3rd round is that Byron Jones would like to see how he runs but I reckon his versatility at being able to convert to FS is also a plus for me.

I also like your mid round picks in 2.0 also.
