DCK Mock Draft

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.

I think Logan is more of an UT right? We need a run stuffer.

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.

would you rather have the 4th or 5th rated OL or the 1st rated WR?

Edit: yea just looked him up. Logan's 290. He might be a solid player, but at least Geathers is of the mold we need.

Who's better? Bennie Logan or Geathers.

depends on what position as Logan is more suited to play the 3 tech while Geathers is more of a NT/1 tech.

I didn't mean to imply they're similar players, just comparing how they're relative unknowns without much hype or talk of going that high. At least not yet...

unknown to some, but from everything i read is he just as good if not better prospect as Peter Konz was coming out last year. they both started at OG before switching to C and leaving for the NFL.

yea, thats what I thought also.

"Quick off the snap and capable of handling double-teams due to his strength and use of leverage, Logan is a load in the middle and a big reason as to why LSU ranked fifth in the

country last year in run defense." - cbssports

off that analysis, does it mean that Logan can stuff the run?

It sounds like it, but I'd have to question his ability to stuff the run in the NFL at 290. If his technique is just that good and he can put on about 20 lbs I'd be all for bringing him in.

Here's what ESPN has to say:

"Defensive Tackle Specific Traits

Versus the Run 2 Not a massive space eater. Will fight hard vs. double team but rarely is able to hold ground or split. Lacks lead in trunk. Will never be a good two-gap defender in NFL. However, he fires out low, has excellent initial leverage and shows good overall strength for size. Tough to move one-on-one. Good initial pop. Can disengage quickly. Does a great job of keeping eyes up and locating the football. Good overall awareness. Has great range versus the run. Closes quickly for his size and is an explosive tackler. Man handles ball carriers on a consistent basis."
