I like it except for the trade...Players are legit, just hate when trades are mocked. Now I have to ask the question, would you take Hopkins at 14?

I dont like trades as well. Its just I hate what will be available at 14 more.

There is not one person I think that would justify the 14th pick for us considering our needs and who will be there.

I like Hopkins enough Id take him at 14 if I couldnt get a trade. I think Hopkins is a beast and would immediately upgrade our passing attack. I have zero concerns about him. With that said he is a bit of a reach at 14, but given the circumstances id be ok with it.

Not bad. The second 6th (assuming it was a comp pick) is out the window now :( If I were to make a change it'd be instead of Wilson I'd take Rambo and take the Kicker instead of that 6th rd FS since we don't have the second 6th.

Good swap. I would prob be more pleased with Rambo there instead.

I actually did a lot of research on Blidi Wreh-Wilson before I took him in the Huddle mock draft and he reminds me a lot of Chris Gamble for some reason except for the fact Wilson can tackle. I honestly have no clue where he'll go in the draft since I've seen his stock as high as a late 1st rounder to an early 4th rounder.

I'd love it if we could trade down and add another 2nd and grab him, an instant upgrade over our current corners.

Not sure if id call him and instant upgrade yet as I see some things he can improve on.

With the right coaching and scheme he can be a good one imo

Wilson certainly is far from a finished product, but I'm not sure there's another CB on our roster besides Dockery that's worthy of being a starter at the moment. Wilson isn't the ballhawk that I believe Norman can develop into, but something about Wilson makes me feel he'll come into his own in the NFL.

Of all the CBs Dockery is the one you went with? If anything I'd have said Thomas, he's the closest thing we had to a decent NFL starting CB for most of last year.

If you hate who is available at 14 why would a team trade up and give a 2nd for our spot.

People like to do trade down scenarios because it gives them more picks and more picks makes a mock draft look better.

Realistically we would only get a 3rd for moving down 9 spots

Not to slight Thomas, I just really liked what I saw from Dockery in the final four games of the season. I don't know about you, but I'd be very concerned if we went into 2013 with the duo of Thomas and Dockery as our starters.

Eh, I'd be concerned but if we add a stud DT it'll make our DL even more ferocious and that makes it easier on scrub DBs. I'll say this, I'd rather have Thomas and Dockery starting than Fua and anyone.
