1. Fletcher Cox DT Miss St.

In my last attempt to even think about who we land from this crop of Floyd, Ingram, Coples, Cox, Kuechly it simply came down to the combination of filling a major hole and getting a top talent. This guy has shown he has the ability and I think fits our defense better than any of these prospects. Athleticism matched with his motor and versatility makes him ideal to pair with that phat ass Edwards. My final 3: Cox, Ingram, Floyd

We'd have to shuffle around our LBs if we go Luke, Coples and Hardy would be splitting time, meanwhile...this guy we put in as a package with Ron while we still try to develop our late rounders from last year into something as rotationals. With DT this year you either take the risk this high or don't take one. I don't see why we'd want to try again at this position past the 2nd. This is a CB heavy draft.

2. Kevin Zeitler OG Wisconsin

The game is won in the trenches and we still need more linemen. I'll be honest and say I don't really know about this Pollack guy we picked up and Wisconsin is a linemen factory like Virginia Tech produces runners. This shores up guard for us with a smart and mauling type.

4. Jamell Fleming CB Oklahoma

Here's a CB we can get to compete with Hogan for the starting spot. He's a ballhawk and knows how to make the big play. Improved every year of college and has honestly looked good this whole pre-draft season. Solid pick...in a CB heavy draft you never who may be there in the fourth.

5. Ryan Broyles WR Oklahoma

He falls because of his injury but he's still got it. Broyles would be an ideal slot-type to have groomed behind Smitty if we're looking later in the draft. He's gonna want to prove what he's capable of after not really being able to show off his skills during the offseason. I'd definitely take a gamble here.

6. Danny Trevathan OLB Kentucky

He makes plays and after some review, I honestly don't know why he's projected so low. He may end up going higher but I'd love to take this guy late in the draft.

6. (Comp) Jerry Franklin ILB Arkansas

Much needed LB depth to groom behind Beason and compete with Senn

7. Shaun Powell P Florida St.

Punter!!

that's it that's all, now can this damn thing get herrreee already

I was praying that Broyles was in here, and ends up here on draft day. Gut feeling..... I think he will

Love the first two picks and agree the game is won in the trenches. Like Zeitler alot. Dont know much about Fleming but I think you address all needs in this mock. May try to address LB in the fifth but if Broyles is there and no LB measures up at that pick dont have a problem with your way either.

Love the 1st pick but you let the 2nd pick mess up the rest of your draft. When you picked the OG in the 2nd you felt the need to make up for CB by taking Flemming who sucks and a LB who want make the team in the 6th. We have added 3 olinemen in FA and have 3 coming back from injury. Guard is not that big of a need now.

I'd be thrilled with this draft. 2 Instand starters with the first two picks, then the Punter would be a starter. And Broyles has punt return skills.. great mock.

Maybe frank Alexander in the late rounds to complete an Oklahoma trifecta

Travis Lewis or Ronnell Lewis would be good OLBs

I love the draft, but I don't find it realistic... Flemming is a great CB, and no way he falls to the fourth.

Well like I said given the CB class with Robinson, Hayward, Hosley, Johnson, Kirk, Jenkins, Gilmore, Claiborne, Joydie, etc. etc. he could very well end up sliding.

@KKL: It seems like you don't like the idea of an OG and are not a fan of Fleming. I think Zeitler will be very good in this league and totally worth solidfying that position with. On the other side of things, Fleming can be argued against and I'm totally down with a Jayron or Trumaine in the second but I simply feel you get more of a sure thing for offensive efficiency with Zeit...which we still really do need to improve on with a developing star offense in the making

Not downing the player he might turn out to be really good player. I'm down on the need of the position so early in the draft. Hangman is already a starter on the left side. Then you have Pollack, Gwilliams, Byron Bell, Z williams, Jeff Byers,Browning and Rodgers all competing for 1 starting guard spot and Back-up spots. Don't you think it's a little overkill right now to use a high pick on 1?

Possibly but my perspective is that you shore it up with a very close to sure guy in Zeitler.

Trumaine, Jayron, Curry, or even a guy like Bobby Wagner would be great...but this way we solidify the OG position both from a starter and depth perspective and the drafted guy can play day one. Honestly, its the same with the others but if we go D-line in the first, OG and WR become a luxury. We do really need a CB2 but I'm basically saying our only options aren't just the first two rounds and there are really interesting prospects that could match quite nicely for a long time with Cam in this draft.

I haven't watched all these guys play but I like the spread of need players addressed. The one thing I don't see is an explosive returner. Guess it's Kealoha again.
