Swag's Final Mock

05 May 2014 - 11:04 AM

1-Marqise Lee-WR-USC-6'0''-190



Late in this draft process, receivers like OBJ and Cody Latimer have had skyrocketing draft stock. Lee has became the forgotten man in the WR group. I think that the school he attended and minor injuries have affected his draft stock more than they should have. Getting Lee here is a steal, because he is as gifted as any WR in this class not named Sammy.



2-Billy Turner-OT-NDSU-6'4''-315



Had this guy as our 3rd round pick in my first mock, was called an idiot for it, extreme reach, etc. His stock has risen among talking heads. This guy is a left tackle and would greatly improve our run game. Haven't seen a tackle in a long time that is as aggressive as Turner.



3- James Hurst-OT-UNC-6'5''-295



Hurst is a legit LT. Period. He held his own against Clowney, not the best run blocker, but a guy that can be a starting NFL tackle, no brainer for round 3. I really think that draftniks have overblown a clean break in his leg. It will heal back stronger, non-issue.


4-Jemea Thomas-CB-GTech-5'9''-190



I love the physicality that Thomas plays with. He plays well with the ball in front of him and is able to read the QB and drive on the ball (a must for our scheme). Pretty good pass rusher as well, as see him as being Captain-ish with better tackling ability.



5-Tevin Reese-WR-Baylor-5'11-163



I can't believe that Reese isn't rated higher than he is. 867 yards in 8 games this year, with 8 TD's. He is a one trick pony, limited route runner, but he is a smooth runner who has the gift of "Mossing" guys by lulling them to sleep and smoothly blowing by them. We have possession guy in Cotchery and Avant, we need a guy who can take it to the house anytime, this is the guy.


6-Zack Kerr-DT-Delaware-6'1''-325



Hog Mollie. I think DG has a little bit of a hard on for this guy, as I have saw him linked to us numerous times. I saw him in a college all star game, Shrine maybe? He looked very good, active player, mammoth frame.



7- Chris Watt-OG-Notre Dame-6'3''-310



Two months ago Watt was overslotted at a 4-5 round grade. Most of the guards have dropped in value, as they should due to the position. Average guards are a dime a dozen. I like OL who excel in run blocking, if you can run, you can win. Watt is one of the best run blocking guards in the draft...but a below average pass blocker. He has the athleticism to improve in that department.

Swag's 2014 Mock Draft V.1

03 January 2014 - 02:38 AM

I'm glad the college football season has all but wrapped up so that these players have shown us all they have to show in pads. We will see how the underwear changes things up in Indy.



We will sign some of our own guys, Hardy (at least tag him), Ginn, Mitchell. We sign scrapheap/JAG's to fill holes.


Onto the draft:



Round 1- Jason Verrett-CB-TCU -5'10''-176



Hell yeah I want to fix the offense, we all do. But I want an elite talent, a day one starter. I don't value the CB position, never have, Reggie Howard and Terry Cousin say "Hi". However I feel like Verrett is a sure thing and BPA. Verrett fits our scheme perfectly with his ability to watch the QB and drive on the ball. Verrett is a bona-fide ballhawk with 8 picks and 30 pass breakups in the last two years. He is also aggressive in run support, a must have for me in a CB. I didn't go with WR here because I feel like outside of the first two guys, they have some question marks.


Round 2-Donte Moncrief-WR-Ole Miss-6'2''-225




This guy has it all, size, 4.4 speed, hands, what he doesn't have it what makes him a second rounder. No 1,000 yard season, no QB to throw him the ball. Moncrief is a bit of a diva, all the good ones are though right? He is a good blocker and shows an intense desire for the game.


Round 3-Billy Turner-OT-North Dakota State- 6'5''-310



Who? FCS player who dominates his FCS competitors, a big, aggressive lineman. Not a guy Walter and the like are talking about, but they will be. Most people want on OT earlier, and one who plays premier talent. I get that, but for me Turner's mean streak and effort sticks out. It's rare to see an O-lineman with the motor on this guy, his athleticism reminds me a little of Marcus McNeil, it's a risk, but one that I think will work out. Look for him to rise from the abyss into that 2nd tier of OT.


Round 4-Richard Rodgers-TE-Cal-6'4''-245



Rodgers is a guy who has average size, average numbers. He excels in gaining yards after contact and has the skills to be a good, not great player. 608 yards receiving this year on a horrible team, with horrible QB play. Cal is bad, bad. His dad is our special teams coordinator, that aside he is worthy at this spot and we need another tight end.


Round 5- Isiah Lewis-S-Michigan State-5'10''-210



We need safety depth at the least. Lewis is a downhill player who comes to the ball instead of waiting for it to get to him. I like that from DB's. Lewis has had 2 picks in each of the last two years, but has a knack for getting his hand in there for deflections. He is a bit undersized at 5'10'' but knows how to tackle low and drop bigger players down to his level.


Round 7- Michael Schofield-OT-Michigan-6'6''-305



The guy is a solid RT for the Wolverines. As you can see, he's not a natural knee bender, he needs to gain some weight. A lot of flaws with this guy, but when you watch the game footage you can see that he gets the job done even though it's not pretty. Would be good depth for our line.
