Don't think we are beating the Saints but if we do, as much as I want a WR, our O-line is just to terrible.

Anyone know of a site that does mock drafts that are decent?

Dno. It seems like these mocks still have us picking Star thinking we'll be picking Top5.

I want Richardson or Keenan Allen in the first, but I really think people can really start believing we'll draft Warmack or and OLineman. Rivera have surprised me in two consecutive drafts (other than the Cam pick) so I would not doubt a Warmack pick at all. Rivera sees things differently from a lot of us.

Only thing the Skins fans are good for, take your pick of over 60 mock drafts.

I'll eventually get a mock draft up (probably about a month before the draft), I usually watch much more college football but since I started working I didn't have enough time to unless I got to watch them while I was in the football center, also it helped that the Heels had a postseason ban so my heart wasn't too attached to the college game this year.

However, if I can toot my own horn. My mock draft was pretty successful, I correctly picked three of the guys we drafted (Kuechly, Adams, and Alexander). Also if I can say so myself, I called the Cam Newton (I was turned on to Cam by a friend that works at Auburn) pick an astonishing 7 months before the draft and I called the Kuechly pick 4 months before it happened; so when I finally do get it up, please check it out.

Hah to be honest I have no idea, haven't paid much attention. At the school I go to they got this cool thing for college football players where it puts stats in an excel spreadsheet for every play so I'll have to check it out.

In the first, I'm pretty much down to Richardson, Jenkins, Warmack, and Fisher. I believe it will be a defensive tackle or an offensive lineman because usually those positions can just fit right in and learn on the fly. I have learned that rookie receivers usually take more time to develop (perfect example: Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts who is in his second or third year are just coming into there own).

Beyond the first round, you know more than I do. However, a lot of people are throwing Phillip Adams name around, so I will definitely check him out.

I was hoping you'll give me three names I like so I can be more optimistic lol. There will definitely be some sleepers in the mid to late. Cant never really hit on those guys.

Those you cant really say that wide receivers usually take more time to develop. Blackmon is actually having a pretty good season for the Jags especially on a team with an overall bad offense and no QB. Heck put Blackmon on our team with Cam and alongside of Smitty and he'd wouldve have a better season. Recent rookies like Torrey Smith, Dez, Nicks, all have pretty good success. I do though believe that receivers later in the draft will have a harder time to develop like Cecil (4th rd) and Lafell (3rd). Though Cecil been pretty good and probably better than Lafell or Gettis.

and who's Phillip Adams???

I'm talking about a wide receiver coming in for their first year and starting to produce from game one. My point was that most stud rookie receivers don't start to get it until their second year (except for A.J Green). Blackmon didn't start playing well until about three weeks ago.

I actually had this conversation with one of the coaches that I work for and he said that the speed of the game is so much different from the college level to the NFL level that it will take at least a full year to truly see how well a receiver will actually be.

Example: Brandon LaFell.

Also, I had the wrong name, the safety's name is Phillip Thomas. Phillip Adams is a safety for the Raiders lol.

I wouldnt consider Lafell in this conversation as someone who could be very good in the future. I really believe he'll be gone and forgotten about pretty soon.

Though back to our conversation, I'd have to disagree with you. Here's why:

Going back to 2008, here is how it looks from the 1st and 2nd rounder receivers who are high prospects coming out only

(2008) Donnie Avery 53rec 674yds 3tds, DeSean Jackson 62rec 912yds 2tds

(2009) Jeremy Maclin 56 773yds 4tds, Percy Harvin 60rec 790yds 6tds, Hakeem Nicks 47rec 790yds 6tds, Kenny Britt 42rec 701yds 3tds (not including DHB and Crabtree)

(2010) Dez Bryant 45rec 561yds 6tds

(2011) AJ Green 65rec 1057yds 7tds, Julio Jones 54rec 959yds 8tds, Greg Little 61rec 709yds 2tds, Torrey Smith 50rec 841yds 7tds

(2012) Justin Blackmon 58rec 786yds 4tds

These receivers had pretty good impact in their rookie season. Other than Green and Julio, all are very good stats. I believe that if a receiver is projected highly as a 1st or 2nd rounder that they will be able to have some impact as a rookie. Im not going as far down for a 4th rd. or later prospect bc they'll def needs more time to develop and sometimes theyre guys listed as inactives in their rookie season. A highly projected receiver may not always give you the AJ Green impact but they will def be good enough as a no.2 wr. They will have some impact and I dont believe that they need more times to develop.
