Let's keep this thread fun and informative!

Now... FIRE AWAY! :)

like Tyler Wilson to KC

Jets in top 10.... Not cool!


Sam Montgomery likely belongs to 4-3 DE than 3-4 OLB.


I think Eric Reid is better choice because there is no guarantee that Landry and Bell will stay with us for another season or beyond.

Also, I doubt Jets will ever draft OLB in the first round again as long as Tannenbaum is in charge.

did you do the draft order yourself :/

Quinton Coples.


But I dig Teo for the Vikings but it seems like kind of a reach. I might prefer Short there. Either way I dig it.

I have a hard time seeing Amerson going top five. To go that high as a corner you really need to possess elite athleticism, and Amerson doesn't at all. His lack of top end athleticism got exposed by Tennessee, and I don't think that game should be tossed off as an anomaly. I still could easily see Amerson in the first round, but no where near the top five or top ten. Also, if the Jaguars are picking that high again, I have a hard time thinking they would be sticking with Gabbert, certainly can't see them going after a very questionable corner/safety prospect over an upgrade under center.

Similar to the Jaguars, if the Jets are drafting in the top ten, with only Barkley gone I feel they would have to seriously look into a quarterback, although Montgomery would make sense if for whatever reason they choose not to.

I'd be happy with John Hankins to the Panthers. Fills a big need, probably the best player given our needs available other than perhaps Justin Hunter.

On that subject, surprised you have Hunter falling that far, and surprised you have who you have selecting him. Would the Saints really go for another receiver over an offensive tackle or defensive player?

good to see you aren't buying the hype on UF's defensive line right now... I've seen a lot of people call Easley and Floyd first round picks, but I've yet to see anything indicating that myself

I based the order off a set of power rankings, I believe ESPN.

I made a couple of very minor tweaks. The only big one was moving the Cardinals up a ways.

Posted it in the wrong thread :P

tjsunstein 09-14-2012 06:26 PM

I dont see GB using a 1st on a RB but I love the thought if Bell. Just need to pick 32.

Dallas357 09-14-2012 06:45 PM

am i the only one that realizes the Jaguars won't be drafting a qb. What part of this regular season, pre-season or off-season has has not shown that he's greatly improved? Was it the touchdown drive last week with 20 seconds left?


Seriously, post in this thread so i can laugh at you later.

Great to have a mock to read...

as a loooooooooooong time reader of the site, i do have an observation;

it seems like you're getting away from yourself and being timid. in your barkley write-up, ya spent most of it talking about his weaknesses, then had him going #1. with robert woods, you talked about him being a late first rounder, then projected him top 5.

the mock was very insightful and well done, but it seems like you're content with following the status quo rankings, whereas in years past, you led the charge on projecting these guys to go way earlier or later than the other experts did.

if ya think barkley is gonna get leapfrogged, and if ya think woods is gonna fall...then don't be afraid to put your money where your mouth is. it's what has made this site great for a decade.

Scott what are ur thoughts on Tyler Bray?

bored of education 09-14-2012 09:12 PM

I love it Scott. Bray would be another guy I;d look at but Bray does not have the polish that Wilson has, yet.

CashmoneyDrew 09-14-2012 09:16 PM

One small typo you made was that you misspelled Robert Meachem's name in the description for the Saints pick of Justin Hunter. (Man, if they take Hunter they must love taking UT wide receivers in the 1st, wouldn't they?)

Also, good pick for the Titans. I could see them going in a lot of directions with their 1st rounder next year. HB, OG, OC, DE, DT, S, maybe even a CB depending on skill set.

holt_bruce81 09-14-2012 09:22 PM

I like it, not sexy picks but definetly two huge needs for the Rams. I'm convinced the Rams just will never give Bradford that monster clear #1 wide out.

Who does Reid compare to?

vidae 09-14-2012 09:28 PM

Fantastic pick for KC Scott. A+++++. Tyler Wilson is my second favorite QB in this "class" and I would kill for him in KC.

and started choking on my tamale.

I think DT is a solid choice for the Bucs. Roy Miller is good, but all he does is clog the middle. I'd love a new DT or an extra DE which you really can't have too many of. Especially when your current backups are (Bowers/IR, Teo'Nesheim and George Johnson)

I actually do like Barkley. Certainly not at the Luck / RG3 level but should be a very good starting quarterback at the next level. Also, keep in mind that the mock is for what I think will happen while my rankings are how I stack the players on my board. Rest assured that Woods won't be a Top 5 overall player once I incorporate underclassmen. In fact, I don't even think Woods is the best wideout on his own team. That is Marquise Lee.

Witten4HOF 09-15-2012 08:30 AM

No love for the Cowboys drafting at #15 either ha, tough division so I can't dismiss the possibility. I like TJ, definitely an upgrade over Church at SS, which I think will be a better fit for his skill set.

Personally I'd like to see the team take a run on Warmack or Jones to bolster the interior line, but I'm a realist and know the scouting dept prefers to defer to later rounds for lineman.

The draft is pretty deep at positions of need S,C/G,OLB so a trade down/ out of the first round might be a consideration as well. My pet cat as a FS prospect Xavier Rhodes could be lurking in the mid 1st come draft time.

Overall very nice mock.

I like Bray a lot. Still rough around the edges but looks the part and can spin it.

As far as junior quarterbacks go I am still a huge fan of Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas, but Bray could give him a run for his money.

Scott, Logan Thomas hasn't looked very good lately. Do you still believe he will go round 1?
