N4S720's Mock Draft V1.0

Recommended Posts

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.

Yea, because our biggest needs are so obvious (DL, secondary primarily, depth at LB and OL) most mocks are going to be very similar for the first couple rounds. It's commendable to make one that stirs it up a bit. I like Gilmore a lot, but not at #9.

The only thing I don't like about this draft is that it includes Vontaze, but then I realize that he's in the lower rounds. So I'd live with this draft.

I think Gilmore's fine. I definitely like him more than Dre or Jenkins. It's an option the huddle has yet to really explore, though I expect them to during the next few weeks. I like the mock.

Like Gilmore, but would love to have him later if possible. Don't think Reyes gives us anything more than what we got in 3rd round last year.

Like Hilton (Adams or Rainey, even Demps late?) would love speed out of backfield/slot that PR as well. Not sure we need to draft OL depth anymore with FA signings. Just not sure we get more than one starter out of this draft and we should be able to get at least 2.

Seriously drafting gilmore at 9 because of his 40 time?

This looks like an al davis mock draft

Not only his 40 time. Its his combination of size, speed and tackling. Receivers are getting bigger so you need bigger faster corners.

You saw what happened to Munnerlyn all year. I can't get that image of him getting tea bagged and manhandled by Megatron out of my head.

What is that people see in Gilmore that they can't find in Janoris or Dre?

He's a better athlete than Dre - better top speed and change of direction skills. No off the field problems unlike Jenkins. Overall, Gilmore's just a cleaner prospect.

I'll give you that he's a better athlete. But if Gilmore has better change of direction skills than Dre you are not seeing it in coverage. They are both similar prospects but Dre is stronger and better tackler, better at recognizing plays in front of him and their coverage skills are equal to me. Actually, I might even give the nod to Dre, Gilmore got beat more. As far as speed, Dre can close on plays fast and he isn't missing as many tackles as Gilmore. As far as comparison to Janoris, yes he is a "cleaner" prospect but Janoris is more skilled corner and his ability to shut down top WRs is unparalleled in this draft.
