It just makes too much sense. WR is probably the biggest need on this team. I dont believe that we'll be in a position to draft a Marqise Lee or Sammy Watkins (Top10) or at least I'm hoping so. I would like to go with Mike Evans in the draft, but Cam needs some proven veteran receivers to work with. I don't want Cam to be trap having to work with a rookie receiver next year.


2014 Mock Draft

(1st) Jason Verrett CB, TCU, 5’10” 178lbs
JasonVerrett2_zps839bd50c.jpg

 

 

Verrett is my favorite cornerback in this class and could easily leap over Bradley Roby as the projected no1 CB. The Senior CB almost quit playing football after RG3 picked him apart in his first game as a junior college transfer two years ago. Since then, Verrett have quickly positioned himself as a future potential 1st round pick. Verrett is a hard-hitting tackler, has great play recognition, closing speed, and tremendous ball skills (6 career INTs). Probably the best cover corner in this class, but also an asset in the run defense. Though, Verrett lacks the ideal size that NFL Scouts likes.

Captain, Florence, and Moore will probably all be gone after this season. The CB position is already and will be depleted next year. CB needs to be address! I dont see Gman taking the FA route to answer this question, so Verrett in the 1st would give us a lot of life at that position next year especially playing in the NFCS.


(2nd) Seantrel Henderson OT, Miami, 6’7” 342lbs

(RT #77 vs. Werner/Carradine)

 

A huge "steal" if we are able to land Henderson in the 2nd round of next year draft. This kid is massive and scouts/gms are going to love his upside once the draft comes. The former five star high school recruit out of Minnesota have somewhat disappointed in the college level. But, Henderson have appeared to show glances of promise to why he was such a highly coveted player with more comfortability. If Henderson can concentrate on football, he can become a very damn good NFL Tackle. Henderson could step in right away in replacement of Bell and be groom to take over Gross at the LT position.


(3rd) David Yankey OG/OT, Stanford, 6’5” 311lbs

(LT #54)

 

An outstanding blocker at Stanford, Yankey has very good size, agility, balance, and toughness. Yankey can play inside or outside, but scouts feel that he is best suited at LG; currently playing LG. Maybe a possibility of moving Amini to RG. Our O-line would instantly be upgraded with the additions of Yankey and Henderson. The protection for Cam will be solidify for years to come.


(4th) DeVante Parker WR, Louisville, 6’2” 209lbs
DeVanteParker2_zpsa40f8b39.jpg

 

Any receivers not named Steve Smith will be a free agent. Ted Ginn should more than likely be retain due to his ST ability and production at receiver so far. DeVante Parker is already out to a fast start at Louisville. The 6'2'' receiver is a big play vertical threat and possess soft hands. He could potentially be taken higher than the 4th round.

(5th) Safety
(6th) OLB / RB
(7th) SF (Colin Jones trade)

Nice post Chuck!

 

As crazy as it sounds I wouldn't be surprised if PapaGetts keeps putting together secondaries from scaps and relies on the pass rush.

As such, I wouldnt be surprised if we didn't take a CB in the first 3 rounds.

 

Good research tho.

i wouldn't hate it, but i would re-sign lafell and munnerlynn and maybe florence (as long as he did what he did yesterday).

 

solid plan, tho.

I think LaFell has a food chance of being back due to little depth there after this season.

I'm not so sure of Florence and Capt. Florence will be another year older and Capt would again have to play on a 1yr deal. I don't think he'd want to do that. He's a very good nickel but I believe Thomas can fill that spot.

just like this year, most FAs will be taking one year deals because the money sure isn't going up and the market will be even more flooded because of all the guys who took one year deals this year.

 

even if florence is just serviceable, he's worth keeping around as depth and as a mentor. captain is just a solid player in the nickel. i don't want to mess that up. he'll sign another one year deal when he sees the market isn't so good.

 

btw, he and most guys who signed one year deals asked for them thinking that next year they would be better off. bad advice from agents, imo.

If Capt is willing to take another 1yr deal, keep him.

Devante Parker will shoot up the board. he is one of my favorite prospects this season.(besides Moncrief) when TeddyB is in trouble he just lobs the ball up for Parker to ****** it out the air.

I would love this. except I would try to re-sign LaFell as well. If we can get Nicks. We can wait another year to draft a top tier receiver prospect.

My preference would be to go OLine and take the best T or G available in the first.

 

You saw what a great D Line did for our patchwork DB's.

 

Always start with the trenches and everyone else benefits.

Good insight as usual. I would not at all be upset if this happened.

Basing on a great performance yesterday, I have faith that we can make the playoffs this season. With that said, we won't be positioned to take a Matthews/Kouandjio/Lewan. The two best OGs are Richardson and Jackson. We could very well go with either one and I would love it, but I'm not so sure Gman would wanna go with a Guard in the first. I would be thrilled if we can land Seantrel Henderson in the 2nd round. His upside is so huge and the talent is there. He pretty much dominated Bjoern Werner (2013 1st rounder) in the video I posted above.

And yes, we all saw what our Dline did yesterday for our patchwork DBs but do you really want to cross you fingers every week that it'll work. There's a problem at the cb position so mind as well "fix" it. I don't wanna act like there's no problem there hoping the Dline can make up for the lack of production.

I think we are still going to be lucky to get to 10-6 and with that record, we will have an outside chance at one of those top 3 OT's.

 

There will be a couple QB's taken and then the Clowney sweepstakes will make it a bit crowded at the top.

 

I am thinking our draft spot will be around 20.  Anyway, I would hope we could get one of those three and park him at RT his first season, which would conicidently be Gross' last by my estimation.
