BBB's NFL Draft Mock 1.0

Alright so this morning the Hurndog was let go, but that doesn't mean much when I'm essentially just making poo up as I go. I will say however, that my decisions will still be based off Rivera being the HC, McDerp the DC, and Chud circa 2011. At our current rate, we'll probably end up top 6~ pick, I'll just assume we're 5, because I like 5. I'll mock the first 5 rounds, add the last 2 in some later versions. We have a lot of holes on this team, mainly OL, Secondary, and some serious lack of WR talent.

With that in mind, lets jump in

Round 1:

With the recent play of our defense, mainly keeping our last 2 opponents under 100 yards total rushing (seriously what the fug, the week prior the Cowboys rushed for 227 on the Ravens!), DT may not seem as important, but I'd still like to bolster the group, especially get someone to collapse the pocket for CJ, Hardy, and Alexander and give us some potential 3-4 looks as well. So I'm going, in my mind, BPA

Jonathan Hankins

DT, Ohio State

6' 4" 325 lbs

Very versatile DLineman that actively engages and sheds OLineman, rushes the passer, not as athletic as someone as Star, but I'm assuming Oakland takes him before us. A guy that can come in and make an immediate impact rotating with the Edwards Wall.

Other Possibles

Justin Hunter, WR Tennessee

DeMarcus Milliner, CB Alabama

Keenan Allen, WR Cal

Round 2:

Here I'm going to add some secondary help, namely a FS, and I'll start that with

TJ McDonald

FS, USC

6' 3" 205 lbs

Very athletic safety that can turn and run on a dime in coverage, could definitely help make up some deficiencies in this secondary, will occasionally get caught peeking but the guy is very fluid, tall, and is willing to tackle. Plus if we can get Norman to develop at all, having this guy behind him could lead to some jumped routes and a few turnovers :winkwink:

Other Possibilities

Dallas Thomas OT/G Tennessee

Desmond Trufant CB Washington

Round 3:

lol no 3rd rounder

Round 4:

Honestly, I wanted to use this pick on someone like Phillip Lutzenkirchen, but following his season ending injury he'll likely return to Auburn for 1 more season. Instead I'll go with a WR, the new regime likely won't keep everyone we have now, and theres a pretty good shot the only WRs we end up keeping are Smitty and LaFell anyway.

Enter

Markus Wheaton:

WR, Oregon State

6' 181 lbs

Not a real known commodity, but he has really hit the scene lately with the Beavers. A 4 year starter, has solid hands, decent speed and body control, can work the short to intermediate routes but has ability to stretch the field.

Round 5:

Try to add some CB depth here by going with

Rod Sweeting

CB, Georgia Tech

6' 184 lbs

Nice sized corner who has done pretty well this season, more depth than anything. Hopefully doesn't need to be pressed into starting duty, but with this team, who knows.

Questions, Concerns, Gripes, or anything else is welcome. Really did this to get my mind off of today.

Lutzenchirken is a senior so he won't be returning to auburn but because of the injury we may be able to get him later on in the draft.

Ah, wasn't aware. Maybe we can scoop him up in the 6th or 7th. Nice hands, aggressive blocking.

I like the addressing of the positions of need in the first two rounds, but I'm not too high on the players. I hear Hankins have weight problems, and I don't want a repeat of Jenkins on the team. McDonald may be a great player, but I haven't seen enough from him. If we get a safety, I want one who specializes in ball hawking.

Its an understandable concern for DTs, even Star had his troubles with weight. The guy used to eat like 5 Hardees Burgers a day. And as for a ball hawking safety, well theres plenty in the draft, my personal favorite just happens to be TJ right now.

Technically he can petition to the NCAA for an extra year of eligibility due to the injury. I don't expect him to though....

True but like you said I don't think he will, especially with how bad auburn is this year.
