278's first mock

12 posts in this topic

Hard to know exactly what we need right now (besides the obvious OL help) considering we don't know what kind of offense we will be running, but heres a swing at it just to see how some of you more knowledgable types feel about these prospects and where I have them projected.

Round 1 - Chance Warmack, Ala OG 6-2 325

Not much too say here. You hate to see a G go this high, but this is a sure pick and immediately addresses a glaring need.

Round 2 - Johnathan Jenkins, UGA NT 6-4 365

A very deep DT class could help us land a 1st round talent at NT in the second. This is just a massive guy. His size in strength in the middle is what we need to make sure Kuechley and Hardy continue to improve. Should also help take pressure off of Big Money, and maybe we could finally cut Fua.

(Round 3 - Barret Jones, Ala C/OG 6-5 302)

Coming off of foot surgery, if he is still around this late we need to mortgage the future to get this guy in tow. People say he can play tackle. Whether he can or not his versatility is sorely needed.

Round 4 - Dion Sims, MSU TE 6-5 275(I've seen everything from 273-285).

Spotty background check should help this productive combination of size, speed, and skill fall down peoples boards. May not be around in the 4th but if he is he is he could be that physical presence over the middle of the field with the skills and speed to play out wide as well.

Round 5 - Xavier Rhodes, FSU CB 6-1 215

Big fast corner. Would probably be a first day prospect, but durability issues could cause him to slip. Love the pick in the 5th if he's available. Gonna need some work, but he already plays smart and has good upside.

Round 6 - Conner Vernon, Duke WR 6-1 195

A bit of local flare here, but watch this guys tape. He is a smart subtle player that is just a reliable target and had a prolific career playing under the radar at Duke. Has great hands and seems to have the speed to make a difference. He could be an excellent 2-3 option and will be better than I think most think. Would raise the IQ level of the receiving core greatly.

Do you have us getting a 3rd rounder somehow? Also, doubt Barrett Jones is there

Not crazy about a TE in the 4th

Xavier Rhodes in the 5th? What? Did he murder somebody and I not hear about it?

Trade for a 3rd round only if you get "your guy." If Jones is already gone then don't trade for the pick.

TE can be a major weapon these days, and we know Cam loves throwing to them if he has two good ones. Sims is no sure bet but you have to love that upside considering he was very productive this past season for MSU. Some teams won't want to take him because of his history, but you hope the fact that he was reinstated this past season and stayed out of trouble is a sign he has grown up a bit.

Just counting on teams being afraid of the injury history with Rhodes considering there are a lot of good looking DBs this year.

Barrett Jones can play tackle at a high level

"Despite earning first-team All-SEC honors (and third-team All-American accolades by the Associated Press) in 2010 while at right guard, Jones was asked to move to the all-important blind-side tackle position in 2011 and starred there. He earned the Outland Trophy as the nation's top lineman as well as the Jacobs Blocking Trophy (SEC's top offensive lineman) and was a consensus All-American."

    • http://www.alternet.org/grayzone-project/fbi-isis-garland-texas-shooting-undercover-agent The first attack on U.S. soil for which ISIS claimed responsibility—a 2015 shooting in Garland, Texas—was instigated by the FBI, according to an investigation by CBS' "60 Minutes" and government documents obtained by an attorney involved in the case. In a macabre twist, an undercover FBI agent who encouraged one of the shooters to "tear up Texas" was also physically present at the scene of the crime, mere feet away from the shooters. Prior to that, a separate informant was paid $132,000 by the FBI to pretend for three years to be friends with the future shooter. When the man found out his supposed friend had taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations on behalf of the intelligence agency, he withdrew from his religious community and eventually fell into online religious extremism. ...... On May 3, 2015, two Islamist extremist gunmen opened fire at an exhibit for cartoons of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in Garland, Texas. The contest featured key figures in the Islamophobia industry, including anti-Muslim demagogue Pamela Geller and extreme-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. The intentionally provocative exhibit was swarming with security, including dozens of police officers, snipers and a SWAT team. The heavily armed attackers injured a security guard outside the building before they were themselves promptly shot by snipers and killed. ISIS soon after took credit for the shooting. There is no evidence that ISIS organized the attack, but the shooters had been independently radicalized and were inspired by the genocidal extremist group. In the two years since, the Garland shooting has been used to justify a vast array of anti-Muslim policies and measures. A new investigation by the investigation team at "60 Minutes," nevertheless, shows that the FBI was deeply implicated in the attack. ..... After the trial, Maynard was given 60 pages of declassified messages between an undercover FBI agent and one of the shooters, Elton Simpson. These documents showed that, less than three weeks before the attack, the FBI agent had told Simpson to "Tear up Texas." This "to me was an encouragement to Simpson," the attorney told "60 Minutes." The government denied that the text constituted incitement, but the FBI's involvement did not end there. "60 Minutes" reported that the U.S. government admitted in an affidavit that the undercover FBI agent also physically "traveled to Garland, Texas, and was present ... at the event." "I was shocked," Maynard told the news program. "I was shocked that the government hadn't turned this over. I wanted to know when did he get there, why was he there?" Documents the government gave to the attorney showed that the FBI agent had in fact been in a car behind the two shooters at the time of the attack. The undercover FBI agent even used his cell phone, several feet away, to film the building's security guard seconds before he was shot by the Islamist extremists. "It's stunning," Maynard told "60 Minutes." "The idea that he's right there 30 seconds before the attack happens is just incredible to me." ..... The undercover FBI agent fled the scene of the crime before being stopped at gunpoint and detained by Garland police. ..... Dabla Deng, the informant, pretended to be Simpson's friend for three years, "60 Minutes" reported. Deng taped more than 1,500 hours of their conversations. When Simpson "found out that this guy was spying on him, and taping him and then finding out that the government was doing that, I think something clicked in him," recalled Usama Shami, president of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix. "And the mosque, we couldn't do anything." "He felt that the mosque had abandoned him?" Anderson Cooper asked. "Yes. And he felt that a lot of people had abandoned him. And that's why he stopped coming to the mosque," Shami said. After this, Simpson moved in with his friend Nadir Soofi, who "60 Minutes" noted "had just had a bitter break-up and the pizza parlor he owned was going out of business." The two alienated men drifted into extremist religious communities online, and were attracted by ISIS recruiters.
    • i actually took this test a year ago because i was talking to this girl who was a psych major and really invested in this test. then i was talking to this other girl who was also a psych major and she thought there wasn't much to it, she basically didn't have respect for it. if i took it today it'd probably line up the same. 
    •    There isn't a problem taking a tackle usually. The problem would be taking any of THESE OTs that high. If there was someone close to that, we would have risked so much on Kalil.
