My Mock (Final Version)

12 posts in this topic

In this scenario we trade down with Cleveland who wants to move up to take their QB. At 28 they will have their pick of Bridgewater, Carr and maybe Bortles.  Whoever they want, they go get.  The Panthers receive the Browns picks in the 2nd and 3rd (numbers 35 and 71) for the 28th pick. Now here is my hope for how these picks get used.

 

2nd Round:  OT Joel Bitonio- He goes later than some think but comes off the board early in round 2. He will play left tackle until he proves he can't.  Even then he would make a tremendous RT or Guard. Low risk, high reward with the big guy.

2nd Round:  WR Jarvis Landry- What?! A WR that ran a 4.7?! Yes indeed. Landry will be our flanker and number 2 receiver for a long time and give us great memories of incredible catches and devastating blocks. He will add an edge to the offense and be a clutch red zone receiver and 3rd down guy that won't go down on first contact. Boldin Jr.

3rd Round:  WR Paul Richardson- Yessir, double down. Here ladies and gents is our speed receiver. He is a little light in the pants (175 pounds) so he could use a season of being a deep threat guy and adding weight before being our future number 1. Rivera said we may not need a number 1 this year, but that doesn't mean he won't draft a guy that will be in the future. Richardson has blazing speed and incredible ball skills. We keep Cam smiling.

3rd Round:  CB EJ Gaines- We finally make a defense pick and I have been pounding the table for this guy for a long time. EJ Gaines is the perfect corner for our system and he is a playmaker. He is fast, aggressive, and a good tackler.

4th Round:  OLB Telvin Smith- He slips to the 4th because of testing positive for marijuana and being somewhat of a tweener.  Like Richardson, Smith will be a rotational guy that will add more mass before taking on a bigger role. He could be a nice replacement for Davis one day if he commits himself to gaining muscle, keeping his nose clean, and learning from our veterans.

5th Round:  OT Charles Leno- I don't know why this guy doesn't get more love. He was a rock solid LT for Boise State and will add depth to our offensive line.

6th Round:  RB Jerick McKinnon. A do-it-all powerback prospect that will be the BPA at this point. Adds competition for the guys and depth for the future.

7th Round:  DE Larry Webster.  Prototypical size and productive in college but he will be WAY behind mentally to adjust to the NFL. A season with our guys will fix that. Rotational pass rusher in years 1 and 2.

I would cry tears of joy if we could pull out a draft like this.

Why wouldn't Cleveland just take their QB at 26?

Yeah, there was not a scenario given for Cleveland coming back in.  At first glance you'd think they would have to have gotten two blue chippers with 4 and 26, like maybe Watkins at WR and Dennard at CB.  Something that they couldn't pass up I would suppose.

aside from the trade aspect - this is a pretty solid mock and most def people I could see us drafting.

I was more thinking if Roby was there at 26 they take him (took Sammy Watkins with first pick, Manziel was gone) then they make the bold move to go back up to get their QB. I see this as really plausible for a team and a franchise that needs to energize their fanbase and seize the opportunity to compete for the division this year.

I hadnt watched anything on McKinnon. Im impressed with him. I like most of your mock except Leno in the 5th. Landry and Richardson would be a good WR combination.

I like the thinking somewhat but I'm under the impression we can get better value than Richardson and Gaines in round 3.  

 

That aside, really like Gaines, Bitonio, Leno, and of course Landry.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
