Have a mock draft? Post it here. Discuss.

Mine.


1. Alameda Ta'amu, NT, Washington
2. Cliff Harris, CB/PR, Oregon
3. Bears Bust.
4. Kenny Tate, SS, Maryland (Bulk Up and place him in the OLB position).
5. Lucas Nix, OT/G, Pittsburgh
6. Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin
7. Malik Jackson, DE, Tennessee

Yes, I realize I didn't go with the popular, "get Alshon/blackmon" Idea. But I think we have bigger issues in the defense than the offense. My reasoning is that we have Gettis coming back. With our current WR core, we are fine. In my humble opinion. I do believe we are need one more CB, I know we have hogan, but I would like to get one more Cb this coming draft to fortify that position in years to come.


SO yeah, what's your mock draft?

Three versions; first if we end up picking top-10:

1st: Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
2nd: Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
4th: Brandon Washington, OG, Miami
5th: Vince Browne, DE, Northwestern
6th: Philip Lutzenkirchen, TE, Auburn
7th: T.J. Barnes, NT, Georgia Tech (Jeff King comp. pick)
7th: Jonathan Bostic, ILB, Florida

Second, if we end up picking 11-15-ish:

1st: Alameda Ta'amu, NT, Washington
2nd: Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
4th: Brandon Washington, OG, Miami
5th: Vince Browne, DE, Northwestern
6th: Philip Lutzenkirchen, TE, Auburn
7th: T.J. Barnes, NT, Georgia Tech (Jeff King comp. pick)
7th: Jonathan Bostic, ILB, Florida

Third, if we trade down and end up picking in the 20's and get a 2nd + a 6th:

1st: Zach Brown, OLB, UNC (via trade)
2nd: Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson
2nd: Cliff Harris, CB/PR, Oregon (via trade)
4th: Chris Owusu, WR, Stanford
5th: Stephen Good, G, Oklahoma

If we could get Thompson and Harris in the 2nd I'd cream myself. I'm not huge on Thompson, but in the 2nd is very good value. I'm not big on that Ta'amu guy at all. The youtube I've watched on him shows him getting shoved around by single blockers all the time. Doesn't even seem to be able to hold the point of attack, which is all a 330 lbs guy is supposed to do. He gets pushed around more in college than Fua does in the pros (judging off what little I've seen on his youtube highlights).

And SCP, we could easily get a comp pick for Marshall too, don't forget about that. He probably got a better contract for a CB than King got for a TE. He's a better CB than King is a TE, anyway. I dunno any details.

We're getting a top 5 pick now. I can already feel it. The moral is going down the drain and Cam can't do it all by himself. We need Defense, this draft should be focused on D. Last draft we focused on the O. Time to get that Line and secondary right.

If we could get a disruptive DT in the first like crick or maybe Thompson from Clemson...and maybe go for a big thumping LB in the second like dont'a Hightower...this is also hoping that Hogan can come in and contribute...our defense could be much improved next year

What is it with all the WR talk? Defense should be the #1, #2 and #3 priority.

My draft is pure D. Except for an Offensive linemen and one Wide out. Otherwise it's all Defense.

I think the WR talk comes from the fact that Smith is getting older and his contract is up soon. Our offense has been the one bright spot, but without Smith that would change and we wouldn't even have that. I want to get better on defense too, but not at the expense of Cam's development.

If we do end up with a top-5 pick we HAVE to take Justin Blackmon if he's there. There really aren't any defensive players worth a top-5 pick other than Coples, who is a DE, which isn't a need.

You get the chance to take a guy who has 12 sack potential you don't pass it up. I'd draft Kalil or Coples 5 times out of 5 over blackmon or any other WR in this years draft.


Also Brandon Thompson has shot up draft boards and is a middle 1st round pick or there about right now.

If things keep up and Arizona and Denver both stay horrible, they lowest Carolina will pick is 8th.

I'm going to put Carolina picking around 10th.

Depending on what you believe the needs for the teams are, here's my two way early mocks.


1st - Worthy - DT - Mich ST. ( I think he shoots up draft boards)
2nd - Minnefiled - CB - Virgina
4th - Lewis - OLB - OKL (he's considered a fringe 3rd round talent, barely a top 10 OLB in this draft)
5th - Iloka - FS - Boise
6th - Wright - WR - Baylor
6th - Zucevics - OT - Iowa (Comp pick Marshall)
7th -Hardin - CB - Oregon St.
7th - Van Bergen - DE - Michigan (Comp pick King)


1st - Kirkpatrick - CB - Alabama ( if he's not there, trade back a few spots for Claiborne from LSU)
2nd - Chapman - DT - Alabama
4th - Mosley - OT - Auburn
5th - Nielsen - OLB - Iowa
6th - Crawford - DE - Boise
6th - Daniels - SS - Duke
7th - Adams - WR - Arkansas
7th - Young - FS - South Flordia

our first two picks need to be LB- either OLB (4-3) or anyone who can help in the 3-4

and corner. We don't need more young DT's unless they are great value

I went over every team's record and schedule and right now I see us going 6-10 and picking 10th overall. There are quite a few teams who should finish worse than us record-wise: Rams, Dolphins, Colts, Vikes, Broncos, Jags, Cardinals, Browns, & Chiefs.

Picking at 10 our options will likely range from Kirkpatrick (possibly), Vontaze Burfict, Michael Floyd, Alameda Ta'amu, Morris Claiborn, etc. My personal preference would be to trade down and pick up an extra 2nd rounder. We should be able to considering that there will likely be 4 QB's projected to go in the 1st round and some teams will be looking to trade up for one.

If we can trade down, get Zach Brown, Ta'amu, Michael Floyd, Janoris Jenkins, or whoever, and still pick up another 2nd rounder (or even a 3rd rounder) we should jump all over that.

I see us going 5-11, 4-12, Top 5 pick, we need to trade that away for more picks and pic, up Ta'amu in the first and in depending if we do trade down and what we get. Get a 3-4 OLB or DE. Ta'amu is looking more and more like a good pick right now.

I think its a little early to start this but I'll play along.

1st: Vontaze Burfict LB ASU
2nd: Xavier Rhodes CB FSU (this is why its hard he might declare)
2nd (if he doesn't): Mohammed Sanu WR Rutgers
4th: Mike Martin DT Michigan
5th: Jamell Fleming CB Oklahoma
6th: Joe Adams WR Arkansas (big time sleeper)
7th: Elliot Henigan DT Birmingham
