When I first read this thread, I wasn't too impressed by the sound of this mock. I'm pretty meh on Allen, and I like Williams in the 2nd but I'd rather get a 1st round DT. Then I looked at the whole mock, and based on what was available to us I can see it. Star and Hankins are both already gone and those are my two biggest crushes. Richardson is also gone, so that's all the 1st round DTs I'd be interested in. All 3 first round OTs are gone, Rhodes is even gone (not that I'm a huge Rhodes fan, but he would make sense). With what's left on the board Allen makes the most sense. The only possible other option really is Patterson, but Allen is a better WR right now. I couldn't give a poo about "all purpose yards". Easy to artificially inflate those returning kicks.
In the 2nd, there weren't really many options left I'd consider better for the team than Williams so I'd call that a good pick too.
All in all, that would be a somewhat disappointing draft, but considering who they have available when we pick I'd be happy.
