[size=2][i]Note: People wanting linemen early will not like this[/i][/size]

1: [b]Johnthan Banks[/b] CB Mississippi St.

My guess at the moment is that Star, Joekel, Fisher, Warmack, Patterson, & Milliner will be gone. I’m not a fan of going DT in the first and believe we will cut Gamble. I understand its popular to build from the lines out in many scenarios but that doesn’t necessarily mean you must at all costs draft a lineman in round 1. Go with who you think would best fit our team regardless of the position. We play Julio, Roddy, Marques, Mike Williams, Vinny Jack…f*ck a lot of damn good wideouts and need a strong corner even if the Josh crew has looked semi-formidable with a solid D-line. If Gamble is gone and Banks is sitting here, that's hard to pass up.



2: [b]Quinton Patton [/b]WR Louisiana Tech

I’ve mentioned before how much I think this kid can succeed in the league and there are a plethora of indicators that he will. The General would be a rock solid 2[sup]nd[/sup] rounder. I’d consider Wheaton but otherwise, I’m just not a fan of some of the other 2[sup]nd[/sup] round targets that may be available. I also have the impression there will be a decent chunk of wideouts that will go between 14 & 36 (i.e. Austin, Williams, Hunter).


4 (or trade up): [b]Brandon Williams[/b] DT Missouri Southern State

6'3 341...big Senior Bowl; This may be my one big reach but it’s not out of the realm of possibilities. He seems to have really impressed scouts and coming from a smaller school could very well wind up here. I like what I see and it’s obvious we need a big aggressive DT to shore up the defensive line.


5: [b]Hugh Thornton[/b] OG Illinois

In a deep G class with fantastic talent at the top, I think this could be a great route if we don’t manage to grab one in the first few rounds. I believe Gross will restructure and Rivera obviously likes Bell. This spot is totally fine to find a Hang’man replacement, which shouldn’t be difficult at all. [u]I would have to think we also make a FA signing at G or T[/u].


6: [b]JJ Wilcox[/b] SS

You may think FS would be the thing to do, but I believe having Godfrey back there could be good for the time being. DJ Campbell also looks solid so I think we could use help equally at either spot right now. I dunno. I feel every time I watch a safety prospect from this class, I find a way to dislike them and that’s happened with most FSs minus Philip Thomas. I think either FS or SS is one of the other big FA moves, relatively speaking, so I’m open to either direction in the draft.

Not bad.

Think Banks will be the best cb out of this Draft unless there is a no name/UDFA that emerge during the season(s).

Patton will be the most immediate WR to impact the league. Great kid, route runner and great hands. A complete receiver.

And I love Wilcox. After the Senior Bowl I think he made some money. Will be a 3-4 rd guy with a good combine.

This is a good draft.

The only people I want at 14 are Johnson, Banks, and Warmak.

In the 2nd I only want Rodgers, Patton, or Warford.

I like the DT in the 4th. Got all the tools to be a successful DT in the league.

Nice mock, refreshing to see a good one on here. Williams probably goes in the third though.

I like the draft could live with this if we added a few vets in FA.

Yeah, in my scenario the few FAs I'd consider would be for FS, OL, OLB, & QB2. This is Gettleman's specialty so I'd trust him/don't have any particular names in mind. It would likely be 1-2 year fillers.

I'm starting to worry that Banks will be gone before our pick.

Rhodes/Poyer could be other options to look at.

Nice, this is a strong mock

The cats get immediate help in the secondary, add a slot/potential WR1, and a big guy to help solidify the d-line.

We have many holes so a position people want early will not happen no matter the situation. Considering this, I'm most comfortable getting a OG/T in the FA talent and cost wise.

Totally

I love what I've seen out of Poyer and Rhodes is definitely worth a 1st rounder.

Oregon St. has two strong prospects in Poyer & Wheaton this draft that we could end up taking a good look at.

I lol whenever someone says "I'm not a fan of going DT in the first" as if it's a viable line of thinking held by anybody with an inch of draft cred.


It's a silly notion no self respecting draft nik would share.
