DCK Mock Draft
Posted 17 January 2013 - 08:21 PM
Keenan Allen WR 6'3 210
If the #1 WR is on the board, I think you should take him. this guy is the most complete WR in the draft, and has produced since stepping foot onto campus at Berkley. one thing i look at with WRs is can they score, and i love to see WRs with 20 or more TDs.he has 17 catching TDs with 2 rushing and 1 PR for a TD.dude can get seperation while running routes, catches the ball well in traffic and out. and when he has the ball in his hands, can make guys miss with moves and vision like a RB. local guy from Greensboro,NC was commited to Bama to play S, but had a change of heart when his brother transferred.
Travis Frederick OG/C 6'4 338
UW is known for producing OL. after starting 2011 at LG, he kicked in to C for 2012 and started all 13 games there. he has started 30 out of 31 games. Coach Bielema called him one of the strongest guys i have ever coached. thinking about how missed Kalil was when he was out, this guy could slide into center without much drop off if need be. but will plug and play RG.
edit: i really wanted to take Sharrif Floyd here, but i doubt he makes it to our pick.
Kwame Geathers NT 6'6 355
dude is huge. is a good athlete for somebody that size,but could have used another year in school.inconsistent at times, and pad level may get high because of height.but since he declared could be had in 4th maybe, and Carolina should run to the stage if he is there. not a stat filler, but can demand a double and push the pocket.plus bloodline plays apart,he could move up the board.
Brandon McGee CB 6'0 195
top recruit who didnt live up to the hype coming out of HS, but has stepped his game up over the last 2 years at Da U by starting 24 straight games. has been one of the most impressive prospects this week at the shrine game showing great hips and coverage and picking off everything he got his hands on. some now believe he has moved up to around the 3rd round(same was said about Josh Norman), but its early still so ima take him right here in the 5th.
Manase Foketi OT 6'5 333
big OT that played in the BIG12 up until this past year when he left KState.KSU would not release him from his scholarship so he had to transfer to West Texas A&M on the FCS level of college football where he dominated playing LT. graded out at 95% in every game and was a finalist for D2 lineman of the year.
guess il add a compensatory pick for the 6th
6th round(comp pick)
John Boyett 5'10 205
John was the leader of the Ducks Defense before getting injuried, and having season ending surgery on both knees. in 09 he subbed for TJ Ward and started 10 games where he produced 90 tackles 8 passes defend and 3 INTs. the following year he had 78 tackles 14 passes defended and 5 INTs. his last year playing in 2011, he had 108 tackles 7 passes defended and 1 INT. this guy is a ball hawk and is around it to make plays. he should be healthy after rehab but the medical will scare teams away. this guy is perfect to take a chance on in the 6th round.
let me hear what you think.

i thought about Josh Evans from Florida in the 5th but felt like CB was a bigger need and value there.
I actually don't mind this mock in all honesty but I think we should try to get a safety in the 5th instead. Otherwise I wouldn't hate it

I don't mind it, but like others I'm not sold on taking a WR in the first when so little seems to separate Allen from the other top 5 or so WRs. Then in the 2nd instead of taking a DT you got us taking some OG I hadn't even heard of. I'm not saying its a bad pick because I haven't heard of him, I'm just saying IF we're ignoring DT I'd feel better about getting Barrett Jones or Larry Warford. As your mock plays out I'd feel pretty much the same way I felt when we took Silatolu. Don't know much about him, I'd wait til I knew more, but there were other guys I'd prefer we had taken. If Geathers is our attempt at addressing the dire need at DT I'd just hope and pray he plays a lot better in the NFL than what I saw of him in college.
To clarify, I wouldn't mind the Allen pick. But I'd be just as happy with Hunter, Patterson, Hopkins or Rogers. I'd also be just as happy with any of those guys or Patton or Woods in the 2nd.
huge difference with Amini who played D2 football and Frederick who played at Wisconsin.everybody knows that UW produces OL and this guy has been apart of the program for 3+ years. has started at 2 different postions,tough, smart and has good size. plus if something does happened to Kalil you got a nice back up center to fill his spot. i would like any WR in the 2nd with OL or DT in the first but what seperates Allen from Hunter, Patterson, and Rogers is being consistent and no off field issues. Nuk is a baller and i would love to have him too.

would you rather have the 4th or 5th rated OL or the 1st rated WR?
If we go offense in the 1st, I think we would be better served getting a lineman. That geathers kid is HUGE though and would love to see him eating up the middle.
