Mel Kiper Jr's first mock draft 1/15/2014

153 posts in this topic

Brandin Cooks was excellent this past season. He is the 2013 Biletnikoff Award recipient. Whether his size translates well to the NFL is to be determined by those who get paid to evaluate. But Cooks looks impressive from YT Clips, and, more importantly, he had some great production.

People really don't know who Brandin Cooks is? Biletnikoff Award winner over Watkins and Evans, and his weakest game all season was 9 catches for 80 yards and a touchdown against Stanford. He went over 100 yards 8 times and went over 200 twice.  I'm not saying I'd take him there (depends on what other receivers are available), but he's a really talented receiver.  Quick, shifty, and ALWAYS gets open. Which we desperately need since our current receivers can't get any separation, even when Cam has 4 1/2 hours to sit back there and look around.

I would much rather have Jordan Matthews from Vanderbilt based on who was drafted ahead of him.

Sneaky shifty. Nice hands, and good speed.

Cam has sailed passes high for the three years he's been in the NFL. It was masked more when he was throwing mostly to two big TE's his rookie year. So people mock us a midget WR? No thanks. You can't expect every tiny receiver to turn into Steve Smith. Give me a big target for cam that can bring in those high passes.

If Evan, Lee, Watkins and Benjamin are gone, who would that leave us with in the first?

I agree with 80% of the comments here, we need height at this position I really don't want to see any shorter than 6'2" and if it plays out like this mock I would rather go Matthews.

Good as a smaller receiver may be, we lack that big, physical target so many other teams have.

 

We need that, badly.

I'm pretty sure DG will go OL unless one of the top couple WRs tumbles.

This give ESPN another Johnny Football story to promote, I guess. For the last 2-3 years we have had The Golden Calf of Bristol, Luck, and Manziel. I'm getting exhausted with those personalities. This poo is getting even more embarrassing by the day. I remember when the NBA was at it's peak of popularity the media had their great hypes coming out every other year also. I remember Keith Van Horn was touted as the world beater who is here to set the NBA world straight. And let's not forget Darko Militic. The media need to stop that poo and just let nature be.
