DaCityKats mock draft 2014

I called Grimble one of the most complete TE in the class because he's got the ability (and past production) both as an inline blocker, and a pass catcher. He's been a nice safety valve for the Trojans QB's ever since getting to USC. He runs good (not outstanding) routes, has very solid hands, has some ability at the catch point and plays well through contact. He uses is body well to shield defenders, and knows how to create separation and get open in tight spaces. He was a valuable part of the Trojans running game (might be where he's missed the most next year) opening up holes with his blocking, and using his athleticism as a lead blocker. Really solid player, and if you can get him in the fifth that's excellent value imo. He could be a more natural hands catcher, and his footwork through his routes can get a little choppy, but all in all he's going to give you a nice balance between a pass catcher and blocker.

Just watched what was available on YouTube on this kid. Big, strong and smooth runner from what I saw. Looks athletic. Surprised his name hasn't been brought up before. Obviously I only watched a handful of clips but I was impressed with what I saw.

Oh man, great job upgrading the skill players on both sides of the ball.  Mutual love of OBJ aside, Bryant is a pretty interesting talent with his size and vertical speed.  Grimble is a wonderful pick, really under the radar TE that is going to help whoever drafts him.  I'll have to check out Brooks a bit more, but really good draft.

Keenan Allen so good, but don't talk Pac 12 players in this forum. ;-)

Lmao at what some was saying about Allen last year.

Solid mock, however I would take Robinson over OBJ. 

 

Also we play mostly zone on D so taking a CB that early might not be a good idea with more pressing needs.

Definitely a fan of OBJ and nice write up.  Beckham has become one of my fave prospects in this class.  

 

I'd consider Kyle Fuller in RD2 as well.

OBJ edged out Robinson in my eyes because he has played in a air coryell system and had his best season ever in it. that should easliy translate to the next level, plus he is the better athlete.

 

bpa is why Roby was the 2nd round pick, plus you will be getting the best zone CB in the draft. you cannot pass on that.

i wouldnt mind Kyle either. very versatile player, but i think he goes before pick 60.

Would be very happy with Odell and Roby.

Love Grimble.

looking back at the mock i did last year, i took a guy who seems to be the rookie of the year, Keenan Allen....

 

 

You took him at 21 in the Huddle 2013 Mock draft too as GM of the Dolphins.

I picked 2 spots ahead of you for the Giants and took Sheldon Richardson, I'd say we both did OK.  ;)

yep, got an extra 2nd rounder out of it and i think i took Kyle Long with that pick. but Allen was the best WR in my eyes last year.
