Terriblepizza's Mock Draft 3.0
Posted 21 April 2012 - 06:30 PM
In the pre-draft press conference this week Coach Rivera said he wanted player that could start
immediately and Gilmore is exactly that player. He has the ideal combination of size and speed
along with long arms. He is terrific in run defense and isn’t afraid to make a hit at the line of
scrimmage. He led the Gamecocks in 2010 in tackles. He is great in zone coverage and press
coverage and is athletic enough to hold his own in man to man. He can immediately start on the
outside and allow Munnerlyn to shift back to the inside where he excels.
Round 2: Devon Still, DT, Penn State
Arguably the most “NFL-ready” of the senior defensive tackles in this years draft, Devon Still
could be another player that immediately jumps into the starting rotation on our line. He is great
against the run due to his ability to get off blocks and fill the run lanes. He can do the same when
rushing the passer but his lack of closing speed and explosiveness leads him to have very few
Round 4: Jared Crick, DT/DE, Nebraska
Crick is a versatile and athletic lineman who can play all the positions along the defensive line.
He’s got a huge motor and has sacked the quarterback on pure effort alone. He had a monster
junior year playing next to Suh, and may struggle to get off blocks on his own. He can make an
immediate impact rotating in at DT or spelling our DEs.
Round 5: Danny Trevathan, LB, Kentucky
Trevathan is a pure tackling machine, leading the SEC in tackles the past two years. He is always
around the ball because of his good instincts. He’s an average athlete and could struggle in
coverage at the next level. At minimum he’d make a fantastic special teams player and a good
back up for any of the LB positions.
Round 6a: James Carmon, OT, Mississippi State
A converted defensive tackle, he has all the size and athletic ability to be a good OT in this
league with the proper coaching on technique. He is a monster at 6’7” and has unreal strength. At
worst, he will be a solid back up. He could be an eventual replacement for any of our linemen.
Round 6b: George Bryan, TE, NC State
An NFL caliber "on the line Y", he isn't a dynamic pass catching option but has the ability to
make plays underneath and at least threaten the seam and can develop into a great run blocker.
Isn't quite dynamic enough to start in the NFL, but could end up being one of the better reserves
at the position on the next level
Round 7: Greg McCoy, CB, TCU
Not overly good in coverage, he would be a serviceable backup at best. His real value is as a kick
returner and special teams player.
