New Mock (Revised)

We are going to relax our filter some and will make some riskier picks just not at 8. So with Fowler, Beasley, and Gregory off the board we look else where. We feel that we did enough in FA that we can go BPA at 8 with the depth on defense in this draft. Arguably the best player left on the board will be an offensive player. We would like to trade back and get Gregory or Dupree but no one will budge.

1.)Scherff, Brandon OG 6'5" 319 Iowa

Patience pays off and we get a DE at number 2 with some 1st round potential and a guy that would probably go round 1 a lot of years.

2.) Smith, Preston DE 6'5" 271 Mississippi St.

This pick is a no brainer for anyone that has been paying attention. You may not have got many looks at him because Gurley was the offense the last couple of years, but when you did see him it was pretty impressive.

3.) Conley, Chris WR 6'2" 213 Georgia

Could take a RB or safety here. Instead though a good fit a LEO is on the board that has everything but the sack numbers. This really is not that unusual though because playing in the SEC as a lineman you are always thinking run first. His hands are very active but need polish. He is long and athletic and with some coaching and time possibly a steal.

4.)Hunter, Danielle DE 6'5" 252 LSU

Letting the draft come to us and being patient is really paying off and we jump at the chance to draft a pretty good ILB that can play well in about any LBer spot.

5.) Ryan, Jake OLB 6'2" 240 Michigan

We get a RB that should be a good fit for the outside zone in the 6th.

6.) Zenner, Zach RB 5'11" 223 South Dakota St.

Still around in the 7th figured he was going in the 6th. Yes please lets have him and hope he is even more motivated with a chance to get playing time on a reforming Oline.

7.) Shepherd, Austin OT 6'4" 315 Alabama

Here is the project a converted QB with one year experience at TE. Seems very coachable and someone will give him a shot late. Has some serious upside for where we draft him so it is worth a shot and see if his game can translate to the NFL.

7.) Bell, Blake TE 6'6" 252 Oklahoma

Instead of Preston Smith why not Eli Harold

Just my board and how I think the draft plays out. Either Harold or Eli goes be fore we pick but I do not see both going and I am hoping it will be Smith at this point because I believe he can play some LEO but then can kick inside on passing downs. Then in the 4th I can grab the guy that I think most people would consider a more traditional LEO to groom.

I love Smith, but I don't expect him to solve the pass rush issue. Don't like Hunter. No production and I think he will go higher.

I think the lack of sack production and coming out of LSU scares some folks off of Hunter that would be looking at him in the 3rd.

Su why not draft provably the 2nd best Leo prospect in Eli Harold then a traditional DE in Markus golden

Honestly I think that Harold and Hunter are about the same size project. Hunter is a good run defender due to scheme and conference Harold is a better pass rusher due to scheme and conference. If I am essentially taking about the same risk I would much rather do it about 2 rounds later. Here is a good article on it if you want to look it over.

Hunter lead all sec Dlinemen in TFLs with 17 I do not think it is a lack of production his production is good. He does not have a lot of sacks but there are some pass rushers that did not get a lot of sacks in college. College game is a bit different he has the tools to be a good pass rusher he just needs to be put in the right situation and developed.
