Mock Draft (A Different Route Beyond the 1st)

23 posts in this topic

I'm going to be intentionally different to see what y'all think about some guys that may not necessarily seem in our target range for the time being.

If a team wants a player where we stand in the second, maybe try a trade down to gain an extra late rounder. Pats-Broncos & the Vikes-Ravens both did this last season in the 2nd. You just never know come draft day who really wants who.

-1-

Chance Warmack OG Alabama

I know people are saying he's rising up draft boards but just looking at past drafts and even after DeCastro's hype, many teams just don't take guards early. We're still in good position to take the guy. If he's not here, I want to know people's opinions on Lane Johnson of Oklahoma OT if you don't mind.

(Trade down & get an extra 4th) -2-

Stedman Bailey WR West Virginia

Consistent and big wideout to take if we are sitting there later in the second round. We've now got a wideout.

-4-1-

Leon McFadden CB SD State

Good article: http://sandiegosport...-nfl-draft-bio/

Could be a good pick if he's not gone by this point. Very good player it seems and if Gamble is gone as many are suspecting, this could be smart.

-4-2-

Brian Winters OT Kent State

I do think we can manage to restructure Gross but still need to groom someone behind him. This kid could be a very solid option. He is apparently a strong all around type guy with a lot of versatility. His big game is against the run. Could be a wise route if no OT early and solid for depth.

-5-

Kerwynn Williams RB Utah State

If one of our RBs is gone for cap or whatever reason, it's never a bad thing to take a late round risk on a RB, especially given how some just seem to pop out of nowhere recently. This kid is explosive and a kick returner, something we still freaking need.

-6-

Bradley McDougald FS Kansas

Did a little searching about this fella. Got an invite to the combine, returns punts, was 2nd in tackles for Kansas w/ 3 ints, and this little tidbit: "Kansas coach Charlie Weis said the senior was as good as anyone on the Kansas squad."

-6- (comp)

William Campbell DT Michigan

If we re-sign Dwan Edwards, I think we generate enough pressure for the time being that we can wait a little especially if we are focusing on the OL and a WR.

So with this, we cover pretty much most of our holes but if they feel a cheaper FA would be more beneficial for the time being for any of these guys, they can be a back up and learn. I think regardless of our direction, there's gonna be a few 1-year patches yet again for 1 or 2 positions on the team. In this scenario, it would be at DT and possibly FS. But our defense played well towards the year's end so I have hope in our secondary and line as is.

So our WRs:

Smitty

LaFell

Bailey

Murphy

Bryant

OL:

Gross(restructure)-Silatulu-Kalil-Warmack-Bell (Depth: Winters & Campbell at the least)

CB:

Josh Thomas, Leon McFadden, Josh Norman, Cap'n

DL:

Hardy-Dwan-FA-CJ (Alexander, Kearse, Campbell, Chandler, Addison, Keiser) *someone's gonna step up you'd think. I mean, I really think our defense can only get better even if we lose a LB and Gamble.

In my opinion, Gamble is gone, so adding a CB in the draft is crucial. Surely wish we had a third.

good draft

I agree w/ Stirs about the CB thing

That trade down thing is a crap shoot btw. Could happen but not likely and I don't like taking a RB even though its the 5th round.

OH LORD with the Bailey pick in the 2nd.

But I like the McFadden pick.

Isn't Bailey like 5'11? He's far from big and I think there will be much better options than him in the 2nd. Id rather have one of these guys, and at least one should be available when we pick in the 2nd even after a trade down: Hunter, Patterson, Hopkins, Rogers, Woods, Williams, Austin, Patton. That's my only real criticism.

Think we could get a better receiver in the second. And I think lane Johnson is a really good tackle, had a great game against damontre moore of texas A&M.
