View Full Version : Three Round Pre-Combine Mock

Just thought I would do a quick mock before the combine. Three rounds without explanations. But I will give an explanation for Moch being in round one; every year a guy jumps a few rounds after blowing up at the combine. I think that guy will be Moch. That is why I have put him in the first round of my last couple of mocks. If he doesn't work out like many think he will, I'll drop him to late 2nd-early 3rd. I don't predict trades, so some guys, especially Watt feel further than I think they will on draft day. As always, comments and feedback are greatly appreciated.

Well, I gave you Houston in round two, although in reality you'd probably have to trade up to get him.

yes but give us Houston in the 1st.no way is Houston NOT a 1st rounder.then we can nab Hankerson and Ellis with our next 2 picks

I like a lot of guys at #7 for the Niners, but none more than Patrick Peterson - I even have him as the #1 prospect period.

How do you see him falling to #9?

I don't really see him falling to number 9. He could go second to Denver or fifth to Arizona. I thought about putting him at seven, but I value pass rushers a little more than corners. I don't predict trades, but if he falls past Arizona, teams like San Francisco, Dallas, Detroit, and Jacksonville will be on the phones right away trying to swing a trade.

Aldon Smith would be awesome in New England. I guess it's a toss up as to whether they'd take him or someone like Cameron Heyward or Cameron Jordan but I'd be ecstatic. Torrey Smith...not so much. The Patriots generally target sure-handed wideouts who are quick out of breaks and run excellent routes. Torrey is quick but not polished at all, and New England doesn't like to take big risks early on in the draft usually. I doubt he's left at #28 but J.J. Watt would be a terrific value. Wisniewski is a good pick. Drake Nevis doesn't fit at all, he's a 4-3 defensive tackle. Muhammad Wilkerson, Danny Watkins, or Mike Pouncey would be great there. Herzlich is someone who is a fit but projects as a 3-4 ILB, where the Patriots already have Mayo and Spikes, so don't look for them to draft him. Clint Boling or Ahmad Black would be good there. I like the Gilbert pick.

Bad Bad Bad Rams draft. Balwin is a reach in the middle of the first. Safety isn't a top 3 round need for the team. And the main need is RG on the OL, Ziemba doesn't fit that IMO. Give me Stephen Paea, Bruce Carter, and Edmund Gates.

Loved Peterson in the 1st but drafting both Moore and Dowling in the next 2 rounds is overkill. Give us Ijalana or Cannon in the 2nd and I can live with Dowling in the 3rd.

Could not have dreamed up a more perfect Miami draft. That deserves some + rep my friend!

I honestly do not care whether or not Moch moves up. What I do care about is the fact that you have the Saints taking him. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! Not in the first round, at least. First, the Saints just do not privilege linebackers in that sort of way. Second, MARK INGRAM and JJ WATT are still on the board. Watt's a better fit in a 3-4 defense but would still be considered by the Saints as a better player than Moch. Ingram would also be identified as a better player than Moch. The Saints go BPA. That's been there draft strategy under Loomis and Payton and I do not see it changing. Because Watt is more of a 3-4 end, I think the Saints would take Ingram first with Watt being the second choice. But either way, I definitely think they would not consider Moch here.

Give us Mark Ingram in round 1, Muhammad Wilkerson in round 2, I am cool with Greg Romeus with the first third but would prefer Kelvin Sheppard with the second third. I like Fua but Wilkerson would make Fua unnecessary.

Decent job with Denver's draft, but I think they will be in the market for a big back to compliment Moreno, not a smaller one.

I think priority one for the Rams has to be upgrading Sam Bradford's weapons. I feel that Baldwin's value could rise quite a bit after workouts. Best case scenario is a trade down, which I could definitely see happening with Newton, Watt, and all the offensive linemen left on the board. As for Ziemba, I don't see him as a tackle. But I think he will be a very solid guard in the NFL.

Pretty horrendous mock for the Skins. Locker over Darreus, and Cam Jordan and Newton is horrible. Then 2nd round Greg Jones is not worth that pick plus ILB is not a major need for us in the grand scheme of needs. We will probably have London Fletcher, Rocky McIntosh, and HB Blades there next year. Phil Taylor, Marcus Cannon, Mason Foster, and about 20 other players would be better picks than that.

I personally hate Newton as a prospect. Locker may not be as flashy, but I'm pretty certain he'll be a better pro. And all indications are that the Skins are pretty high on Locker. As for ILB, I think it is a need. London Fletcher is 35, he won't be around for much longer. Jones can contribute on special teams and as a backup for a year or two and then step in as a starter whenever Fletcher retires.

So this mock is how you would draft for teams?

No, I just think teams are going to looks at tape and realize that he did very little at all that translates to the NFL. He is Vince Young with a slightly better arm but less experience. Looking back, Young wasn't worth the number 3 pick and neither is Newton.

62. Chicago Bears- Muhammad Wilkerson

No WAY DT Muhammad Wilkerson falls all the way to the end of the 2nd round.

Can you say a Bias Bears draft?

Pretty much was I was about to type. But still... Aldon Smith!!! Woo-*******-hoo!!!

For the Bengals
1st - 4th is too high for Jones. WR is a need, but not a big enough one to reach for a player when there are definitely better guys available. Bowers would be the pick here.

2nd - Mallet is a horrible fit for Cincinnati's new offense and new direction as a dumbass free team. Marcus Cannon is exactly what they need on the o-line and is a better pick.

3rd - Meh. Wasn't impressed at all with Beal at the Senior Bowl. Undersized for a 4-3 end. Kaperick would be a good pick here.

A lot of people say 4th is too high for Jones. I disagree. After the combine and individual workouts, I think the space between AJ Green and Julio Jones is going to shrink considerably. And since when is Cincinnati suddenly a dumbass free team? The Bengals just drafted Carlos Dunlap last year. Cedric Benson and Bernard Scott are still your running backs. And I'm pretty sure Andre Smith's fat self is still a member of the team. Every year Bengals fans try to say that this will be the year that the Bengals change. And every year, the Bengals draft a guy who is an idiot, lazy, has an arrest record, or some combination of those three.

This year is different. Marvin has been given full control of player personnel. He is not the great redeemer like Mike Brown.

How often do wide receivers go top 5? Let alone 2? It's not going to happen. WR isn't even that big of a need. The offense was at it's best with Simpson, Caldwell, Shipley and Gresham as the main targets.

Just because they have a new direction of not taking character risks doesn't mean they are going to up and cut all of the guys who HAD character concerns on the team.

You should listen to what people say about their team.

Simpson, Caldwll, and Shipley are not number one guys. In three seasons, Simpson has played in a grand total of 13 games, starting 4, and racking up a spectacular 21 receptions. Caldwell has done more and maybe his quality three game stretch to end last season was legit, but to me he seems like a guy more suited to play opposite the star. Of the three, I would take Shipley, but not as a number one. He is a slot guy and nothing more.

Simpson had 21 receptions in 2 career starts. You're not telling me anything I don't already know here. The fact is the offense was A LOT better when the young guys were in there. Not to mention the Ocho is still under contract for another season as the #1. Ocho, Simpson, Caldwell and Shipley (who led AFC rookies in yards as a #3) is more than solid enough to not reach for an inferior player with the 4th pick.

A.J. Green I could see since he's worth the pick and a stud. Still not my first choice though.

The Bengals may not have a great track record of drafting but they ALWAYS go with BPA. They never reach for need (even though I don't see WR as a huge need). Jones is not the BPA and you won't find anyone who will disagree.

Yeah, a little overkill with the defensive backs. I must have forgotten I put Peterson to them in the first. I'll definitely change it in my next mock.
