Round 1: Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina


Posted Image

#9 may be a little high for him, but he's a big corner (6'1") with 4.4 flat speed and 31 inch arms. That kind of combo doesn't come along often and even the talking heads have him as a top 15 guy now. This guy is a solid tackler and is best in man to man coverage. He is very good a play tough at the line and isn't afraid to come up and lay a hit in run support. Pair him up with Gamble and we have one of the best CB duos in the NFL. Not to mention, this allows us to slide Captain back inside where he is better suited

.Round 2: Kendall Reyes, DT/DE, UCONN

Posted Image
He played DE and DT at Conneticut, but didn't get a lot of sacks. He is decent at getting inside pressure and plays the run well. His frame is large enough to add more weight without losing much of his speed or agility. He would make a great addition in our rotation of Edwards, Fua, and McClain.

Round 4: T.Y. Hilton, WR, FIU

Posted Image

This guy is a blazer (4.33 40) and could be a great deep threat in our offense. He's built similarly to Steve Smith (5'10, 183lbs) and is fantastic with the ball in his hands. He could potentially be a fantastic kick/punt return that we desparately need.

Round 5: Danny Trevathan, LB, Kentucky

Posted Image

This guy is a tackling machine. He was mostly overlooked because of being part of a sub-par Kentucky unit during the past two years. He is an average athlete but he has a nose for the ball and is decent in coverage.

Round 6a: Andrew Datko, OT, Florida State

Posted Image

Athlete tackle who did pretty well at FSU. He has some good initial quickness and would be great depth at both OG and OT. On concern is that he has had multiple shoulder surgeries and it could be a risk.

Round 6b: Vontaze Burfict, LB, Arizona State

Posted Image

This guy is all over the place. Flashes of first round talent with big plays and even bigger hits, but has terrible measurables and interviews. I think the right coaching staff could turn him into very solid player and he is worth the risk with our compensatory pick.

Round 7: Drew Butler, P, Georgia

Posted Image

Specialists from UGA have worked well for us in the past. Butler has a strong leg with a 44.3 yard average last year which was good enough for 13th in the nation.

Eh, no thanks to Gilmore at #9. That's an extreme reach. No thanks to Reyes in the 2nd, better DTs and other positions can be had. The rest of the draft is nice though.

After what Mayock said about him at his pro day, I don't think he will be BPA at #9. Looks raw, but with great upside. On the other hand, Chris Gamble was as well. I love the Drew Butler pick. Don't know much about Reyes but I am sick of players from UConn.. they have done nothing but bust.

Nice to see a mock with players that havebt been mentioned to be possible picks. Definitely a nice new look. I give it 6 out of 10.

I actually don't mind this mock. I think Kendall Reyes could be a good player, even though he is a UCONN football player (which are generally not the best).

I think I would definitely take Gilmore over Kirkpatrick, so I don't think that's a super huge reach. Trevathan is a fantastic LB, and will be a steal for whoever drafts him.

Any of the Punters are an upgrade, whether it be Anger, Butler, etc.

I thought about Gilmore being a reach, but you know, I could see us sliding back to pick him up too. I've watched him play at Carolina his entire career. With some coaching, he'll has an infinite upside.


Also, I was looking to make a mock that wasn't a carbon copy of all the others I've read here.

Dont know why but every draft I look at that has us taking a WR in the 4th round makes me nervous. I understand the logic but it seems like we could add a 3 down rotation guy OL or OLB with this pick. Otherwise I dont mind it at all.

I dont know about Reyes mainly because of the whole UConn football players busting thing, Gilmore is probably a reach at 9...rest of the draft is alright though. I just want the draft to be here lol

Even a guy like Joe Adams?

Gilmore's become unquestionably the number two CB prospect on the board and will probably go in the 11-18 range. KC's pretty good possibility.

Wouldn't be bothered by the pick. Though I think iut's pretty much a given at this point we're going Coples, and I think that's probably for the best.

Pretty much a given? wut?

I definitely don't think anything's a "given", especially since Hurney said just a few days ago they are keeping an "open mind" going into the draft.

Love Gilmore but #9 is way to high. Better players will/should be on the board.
If Worthy is there in the 2nd, I'm sure they'll take him in front of Reyes.
Though I do agree we need a PR/KR I think unless its Adams, we'll take one of the 6th round picks. Just my opinion.
Like the Trevathan, Datko and Butler picks.
Dislike taking Burfict in the 6th. Imo I only want Burfict if he's UDFA, where there is little risk in taking him.
