    Philadelphia Eagles Mock Draft
    This is if they manage to sign one of the FA safeties and Maclin or Cooper.

    22 – [DT] RA’SHEDE HAGEMAN (MINNESOTA)
    "Big people eat little people." Can line up anywhere on DL. Jackpot!

    54 – [WR] JORDAN MATTHEWS (VANDERBILT)
    Stud WR that will give the Eagles offense more explosiveness.

    86 – [ILB] YAWIN SMALLWOOD (UCONN)
    Best available ILB to groom for a year or two.

    118 – [S] DION BAILEY (USC)
    Even signing a FA safety isn't enough to fix the current slop. PAC12 connections.

    150 – [CB] DEION BELUE (ALABAMA)
    Quality depth guy. Williams/Fletcher/Boykin isn't great, but wasn't bad and should improve in year 2.

    157 – [RB] DE’ANTHONY THOMAS (OREGON)
    Is there any reason Chip don't draft him here?

    214 – [OLB] DEVON KENNARD (USC).
    Need to draft a DE/OLB somewhere.

    DT SHAMAR STEPHEN

    UCONN

  • Alex

    Cowboys 7 RD.

    1. Mike Evans (WR) Texas A&M – When an impact player falls to Jerry he swoops in. Pairing Evans and Dez would propel this Offense over the top. The Cowboys are in desperate search for a WR to replace Miles. Terrance Williams looks somewhat they part but Mike Evans is on another level, his 6'5 frame would give the Cowboys another legitimate Red Zone threat for the foreseeable future and could free up Dez versus double coverage. This could be better than the Alshon Jeffery/Brandon Marshall duo in Chicago.

    2. Ra'Shede Hageman (DT) Minnesota – Getting this kind of skill set and size in the 2nd round you would make any fan/GM happy. Considered a 1st round talent Hageman will give the Cowboys the immediate talent and size inside at the 1 Tech that they desperately missed last year.

    3. Dominique Easley (DT) Florida – If it weren't for an injury last year Easley could have certainly seen himself planted firmly in the 1st round with Donald/Jernigan. He has the explosion and quick twitch motor that Rod Marinelli covets from a 3 Tech in his 4-3. Easley and Hageman combo inside should provide excellent talent long term for the Cowboys.

    4. Yawin Smallwood (LB) Connecticut – I really like Smallwood's ability to cover the seam and his size. He could stand to gain strength and work on his play recognition as well as shedding blocks, but the production was there. I think he could potentially serve as valuable depth in the LB corps and eventually within 2 years push for a starting spot at SLB.

    5. Will Clarke (DE) West Virginia – Clarke is going to shoot up draft boards, I really love his length and his reach. He does play with power and has a very good initial first step combining that with very powerful hands. He could benefit from a full NFL off season as his leverage is weak at time and he has issues fighting off blockers at times. I would have taken Clarke in the 4th but I thought he would be there in the 5th.

    7. Brandon Linder (OG) Miami – This pick is all about line depth, Linder has massive size and plays with savvy power. He offered excellent value in the 7th round.

    7. Justin Britt (OT) Missouri – Really good feet for an OL in this round. He does a good job on tape of reacting to the power rush. No a complete fluid tackle and I project he could be a better OG than OT. He uses his hands very well inside, excellent player int he 7th, so I jumped on the value of OL in this round.

    7. Devon Kennard (SLB/DE) USC – His father won a Super Bowl with the Cowboys in 95 as a backup so I am trying to replicate the success. Kennard played OLB at USC but I am taking a flyer to see if he could get stronger and be a situational pass rusher at the next level. He is a polished player but doesn't do anything great. He doesn't have a quick first step but is strong. If he quick enough could continue to play OLB in 4-3 scheme.

    Chicago Bears Mock Draft

    14 S HA’SEAN CLINTON-DIX (ALABAMA) Our secondary needs some play makers and starters, Consensus is he starts…and he hits… Works for me

    51 CB JASON VERRETT (TCU) Our secondary needs some play makers and starters… If we don't re-sign Peanut we need lots of help, I don;t see us spending huge $$ for secondary help, think we will miss out on Ward and Top CB's…

    82 DT KELCY QUARLES SOUTH CAROLINA Quarles plays low, showing good power and technique to absorb double-teams, making him a potential fit as a nose guard as well as a traditional three-technique defensive tackle. May just be scratching the surface of his potential..If the Bears go "Hybrid" 4/3 3/4 this is a great fit, if they stay 4/3 still works if we get some pass rush from the end… I am thinking FA for an end… and G-bye to Peppers

    113 ILB YAWIN SMALLWOOD UCONN I know we have two rookies who played last year, Briggs is long in the tooth and talk is that MCClellan is going to flex at time s back to LB…

    144 DT DANIEL MCCULLERS TENNESSEE We sucked against the run, this guy is great against the run… Bears did best when they had about 700lbs of ass sitting in the middle of their defensive line…. Quarles and McCullers gives them at least 650lbs…should be able to provide some push at best, or at least no gaping run holes at worst….

    167 DE JOSH MAURO STANFORD "Country strong"… we need rotational depth….and people they can't move for run defense… this works

    175 CB WALT AIKENS LIBERTY Like this kid, we need secondary help.. We do alright with small school picks, I think this will be one of them…

  • Glenn

    I have run across some interesting choices while running the Mock draft, which leads me to this question for my fellow drafters: How many starters/ contributors constitute a successful draft? I know there's a need to balance need and picks… but I have had some drafts were I;ve gotten Greg Robinson (at OT), Swinson (At Center), Ahmad Dixon at S , Charles Sims at RB, AJ McCarron at QB, MCCullen at DT and then Walt Aikens or Andre Hall or Victor Hampton at CB…. Bears need defense, I know that. Last year Emery I thought did a great job of a rebuild onthe fly at the LB corps until injures wiped them out forcing the rookies to play. Our D line was decimated likewise by injuries… and as a result our secondary was exposed and brutalized. I look at money committed and cap space and think Peppers is gone, Garza is old and Swinson is projected as a plug in starter…which works for me, our OT Bushrod has no real benefit to cap by sutting, but I would think a draft day trade perhaps? and we could plug Robinson in, or move Kyle Long out and plug Robinson in his right card spot… We would be frickin NASTY on the O-line and barring injuries NASTY for a while. SIms is projected to be a Forte type back and well…we have Forte… so more of that served up in Trestman's offense works, McCarron for some reason drops to the 5th round, and I view him as a great QB for Trestman's system so we have a young quality back up, and one with a track record of big game performances and wins… I don't know… just wondering what you think.. Like Cleveland with all their picks, could have 4 or 5 starters (this year) if they don;t bundle up for one of those alleged" top QB's (you know Cleveland is going to get it wrong no matter who they pick as QB…. Clowney would look good there, and then a Guard or Center with their second pick… they could build up a whole lot of areas on their team before going for a QB… Just wondering how you view the need vs starters at less prioritized positions…

  • Dominic Piertrzyk

    As an Eagles fan….if the Cowboys pulled this kinda draft off I might actually be scared of them. Nice draft sir…..Hageman is a BEAST I want the Eagles to get him sooo bad

  • Dominic Piertrzyk

    Eagles Mock 2.0
    If they don't sign a FA and only retain Cooper AND Maclin. Keeping the offense in tact.

    22 – CALVIN PRYOR (S)
    LOUISVILLE
    He is Dawkins reincarnated. Stud. Best Safety in the draft.

    54 – RA’SHEDE HAGEMAN (DT)
    MINNESOTA
    I take him anywhere in the 20s. If he falls this far God Bless.

    86 – SHAYNE SKOV (ILB)
    STANFORD
    Best ILB to available. Him and Smallwood are 1a/1b for Day 2 guys.

    118 – JUSTIN ELLIS (DT)
    LOUISIANA TECH
    Steal in the 4th round.

    150 – DEION BELUE (CB)
    ALABAMA
    Value + Depth = Solid pick.

    157 – TAJH BOYD (QB)
    CLEMSON
    Not taking Foles' job but an interesting curveball for the backup QB spot.

    214 – CASSIUS MARSH (DE)
    UCLA
    Really hope this isn't the only DE/OLB we add. Definitely could/should take one higher but none worth taking ahead of the guys who fell.
    Signing a FA in the $4-6 million per year range is ideal with strategy,,,,,hello Jared Allen???

  • Dominic Piertrzyk

    ***dont sign a FA safety

  • Dominic Piertrzyk

    No shady QB pick to stash behind Cutler should they realize he isn't worth the money?

  • http://www.fanspeak.com/ Steveospeak

    I would say this is the better mock for the Eagles. Pyror is a stud and adding him with Hageman, Skov and Ellis can quickly turn their defense around.

  • http://www.fanspeak.com/ Steveospeak

    That would be a great defensive draft for the Bears. They wouldn't be adding a pass rusher, but they fill every other need.

  • http://www.fanspeak.com/ Steveospeak

    Nice overall draft for the Dolphins, you know Tannehill is pushing for Lewan and Swanson.

  • http://www.fanspeak.com/ Steveospeak

    yeah i could definitely see Thomas ending up on the Eagles. Kelly would love to find ways to have him on the field the same time as McCoy.

  • http://www.fanspeak.com/ Steveospeak

    Really good draft for the Cowboys, completely upgrades their front 4

  • Dominic Piertrzyk

    This definitely leaves more possibilities in FA but the other daft isn't much different….basically trading Pryor and Ellis for one of the FA safeties and Jordan Mathews. I think the other draft makes our offense AND defense that much better tho. Adding Mathews and the Mamba to our offense would be ca-razzzzy good.

  • Dominic Piertrzyk

    If the Super Bowl gave us any insight, its DEFENSE, DEFENSE, DEFENSE. Although Jags need a QB, they need defensive help more, if that is even possible. I think if these were the Jags picks, the first 6-7 picks would all be instant starters. With QB's Garoppolo and McCarron would be a definite upgrade from Gabbert and Henne. I could even see Houston picking a QB, Cleveland trading up to get a QB and then Jags could trade back with Atlanta or Tampa for the rights to draft Clowney and add maybe another 2nd or 3rd round pick, which the Jags need all the picks they can.

  • Kerry Corn

    Dawg Pound could have a reason to hold their collective breath, but I wouldn't bet on it.
    I did this draft assuming Pettine would stick with his preferred Def. scheme.

    4
    WR SAMMY WATKINS
    CLEMSON
    Josh Gordon on one side, Cameron in the middle and this guy on the other. Do I need to say more?
    26
    CB JUSTIN GILBERT
    OKLAHOMA STATE
    Buster Skrine, do I have to add more? Ok, it's another pick your poison in the passing game, this time on the D side. Hayden and this guy would make outside throws a nightmare.
    35
    RB TRE MASON
    AUBURN
    This guy has the talent, athleticism and productivity that Cleveland wanted out of Richardson… Also, see first round's pick? No 7 man fronts makes for a good start to a career.
    71
    ILB SHAYNE SKOV
    STANFORD
    Yes, D'Qwell is still there. He looked horrible in the 3-4, the other jabroni next to him was worse. Skov comes in provides instant competition, depth and toughness at the position and he could play outside, if Pettine wanted to move one of these LB's up to DE.
    83
    QB JIMMY GAROPPOLO
    EASTERN ILLINOIS
    This is my, snap, Hoyers gone for the year again pick. Garoppolo is a good fit, he's shown he can get the job done.
    102
    S JIMMIE WARD
    NORTHERN ILLINOIS
    Safety is a need, next to T.J. Ward, but an even bigger need if T.J. hits the open market in FA. Wouldn't even have to change the jerseys! J. Ward showed up and took names at the senior bowl.
    123
    DT DANIEL MCCULLERS
    TENNESSEE
    If the shift occurs, this gives Pettine a Darius like DT, not as fast as Darius, but bigger. McCullers is a beast and a great run stuffer.
    133
    G KADEEM EDWARDS
    TENNESSEE STATE
    G was a horrible position for Cleveland last season. Need to avoid that Snap moment from earlier? Improve the OG. Edwards is a long armed guy who will also open lanes up for Mason.
    164
    DE JOSH MAURO
    STANFORD
    Again. I've assumed Pettine is running a specific kind of Def. That said go ask UCLA what they think about having Skov and Mauro on the field at the same time. A powerful beast of an end.
    195
    WR JALEN SAUNDERS
    OKLAHOMA
    In obvious passing downs, Hoyer…snap, ok, Garoppolo will need a good playmaking safety valve. Saunders is that kind of player. His size dictates that he'll probably not be a 3 down kind of guy, but with the new combination of Watkins/Gordon/Cameron/Mason, it's easy to see how this kind of WR will make catches in the short game and turn them into something big. He can also return kicks and punts…Cut the fumble fingered G. Little.

  • Kerry Corn

    I'm not sure what happened, but my first draft was for my Cowboys I'm reposting it, so if it shows twice, sorry.Haslam might be a worse option as an owner than Jerry… but I'm not even going to try holding my breath on that one. That said.
    16
    DT RA’SHEDE HAGEMAN
    MINNESOTA
    No doubt you're going to lose Hatcher, couldn't stay healthy at the position and lost 2 guys, one because he was deceptive and the other because he was a idiot who chose to drive drunk. Hageman can play either spot and be a monster with his quick first step, power and lateral movement.
    47
    OT MORGAN MOSES
    VIRGINIA
    2 words, Doug Free… no way do I want to see this bum starting next season. Keep him around as a backup, but Moses is an instant upgrade, especially in the run game. Romo isn't getting any younger, he just had back surgery, I'm guessing here, but just maybe he's like a clean pocket to pass from.
    78
    DT DAQUAN JONES
    PENN STATE
    Maybe in the top five 3 techniques available. With him next to Hageman you'd have two 320 pound DT who have the quickness and power to beat any interior Olineman in the league. All of a sudden Ware or even Selvie are no longer facing double teams every down.
    115
    QB A.J. MCCARRON
    ALABAMA
    Romo and his back are one reason I make this pick here, the other is Kyle Orton. At best a serviceable backup with zero upside. Orton costs 3 mil. at a time when the Cowboys don't have the cap room to sign a waterboy. It's almost embarrassing, no cash to compete for top talent in FA and we'll have to scramble just to have enough space to sign our rookie class. As Fake Cowboys GM this is unacceptable and Orton has to go.
    Mccarron has some issues with arm strength and pocket presence, but I think those can be solved in an NFL strength and Conditioning program and the latter involves having Garrett and Wilson, in addition to OC's (plural, Jerry… really?) to soak up experience from. Mccarron is my pick here because of what he doesn't do. Turn the ball over.
    146
    G MICHAEL SCHOFIELD
    MICHIGAN
    Going back to becoming stronger in the trenches. Schofield is being projected at RT only. I don't buy that for an instant. Anyone else here watch him and Martin brickwall just about everyone set in front of them during the senior bowl practices and game? Yeah, me too. I put this guy, who already appears to be very technically sound and extremely competitive in the above mentioned strength program and he takes the RG spot from Bernadeau by the start of preseason.
    206
    DE LARRY WEBSTER
    BLOOMSBURG
    Interesting pick for me here, but it's a upside/athletic ceiling that this kid has I couldn't pass up. Yes, little exp., Yes, light for the position at 6'6" and only 249… however, he has a NFL pedigree through his dad, who happens to have a SB ring, and with some added weight, say, 15 pounds, I believe I'm looking at a diamond. Don't start him, but put him into rotation and watch what happens.
    208
    WR L’DAMIAN WASHINGTON
    MISSOURI
    Problems with consistency and route running… k. 6'4" 205 Lbs. and projects into a 4.35 to 4.4 range in the 40? Yeah, I'll take some of that in the 7th round, no problem. Could also translate into a burner type gunner in the kicking game.
    215
    S JONATHAN DOWLING
    WESTERN KENTUCKY
    I don't know why Wilcox never got his job back after coming back from his hamstring injury, he looked like he was coming on. Matt Johnson spent another season sitting on his couch, Church was the only real contributor in our S squad…and I keep seeing Jeff Heath getting beat over the top…I'd much rather have 6'3" Dowling in a jump ball with Calvin Johnson than Jeff Heath. With our injuries, having some depth and competition in such a sore spot on the roster is a good thing.

  • http://www.fanspeak.com/ Steveospeak

    Haha here is a mock I did for the Steelers:

    15 OT TAYLOR LEWAN, MICHIGAN
    -The Blindside protector Big Ben needs.

    46 TE AUSTIN SEFERIAN-JENKINS,WASHINGTON
    -Heath Miller could need to be cut, even if he's not, Pittsburgh could find ways to utilize both TE's.

    114 DT JUSTIN ELLIS, LOUISIANA TECH
    -Gives the Steelers the nose tackle they need.

    145 ILB MAX BULLOUGH, MICHIGAN STATE
    -I think Bullough would be a good fit for Pittsburgh, they need an ILB to pair with Timmons

    176 CB ANDRE HAL, VANDERBILT
    -I'm a big fan of Hal and think he could develop into a starter

    207 CB AARON COLVIN,OKLAHOMA

    -just great value here for any team, but the Steelers especially who are old in the secondary and need to get as much out of draft as possible.

    This is a dream of sorts cause there is no way the draft will fall this way for the Boys, but in this mock it did. If there was a way to get three starters in your frist three pics I'll take that all day. This draft would give the "D" a much needed make over and add a much better RT than Doug Free. Bullough would push Carter to be better and bench him if he's not. Same goes for Colvin and Claiborne. Then theres Shaw who is underrated IMO and could be groomed to be a future starter or cheap backup at worst. Thoughts?

  • Dominic Piertrzyk

    I see your solid draft and raise you this…..

    15 (OT) GREG ROBINSON – AUBURN
    They need o-line help he probably dont fall this far tho.

    46 (CB) JASON VERRETT – TCU
    Can use another CB and really like Verret in this spot with their need.

    114 (TE) C.J. FIEDOROWICZ – IOWA
    Sound redundit, can use a TE to relieve and replace the legendary Heath Miller.

    145 (ILB) MAX BULLOUGH – MICHIGAN STATE
    Him and Denard have Pittsburgh written all over them.

    176 (WR) MICHAEL CAMPANARO – WAKE FORREST
    If they lose Sanders, he can be a sneaky late round sleeper.

    207 (S) SEAN PARKER – WASHINGTON
    Have to start planning for the post Troy era.

  • Dominic Piertrzyk

    They should snag GAROPPOLO and groom him.

  • Brandon C. King

    Sorry to end the competition early but the DEBATE IS OVER….Best. Mock. Ever. 4 of the first 5 picks would start immediately. All five if you started Manziel but I think he needs a year or so learn behind Hoyer. Cleveland would build a satue of Ray Farmer if he pulled this off. Imagine on offense with Josh Gordon, Sammy Watkins, Jordon Cameron, Carlos Hyde, with D'Anthony Thomas coming off the bench. Good luck stopping that.

    Manziel in the 2nd…. This isn't a draft… It's a fantasy

  • Brandon C. King

    Hey, I wasnt planning on getting him but you never know. every year somebody falls. I think its a good mock even without him

  • Dustin Rosenau

    Best Vikings draft to date, in my humble opion:

    8 – QB – TEDDY BRIDGEWATER – LOUISVILLE
    – Can't believe that he dropped to #8 and fills a big need. Depending on the QB situation in the offseason I think he can either start right out of the gate or sit a year.

    40 – OLB – RYAN SHAZIER OHIO STATE
    – I think that this is a solid pick. Lacks a little bulk but fills another need.

    72 – ILB – CHRIS BORLAND WISCONSIN
    – I know this is not CJ Mosley but he is the #2 rated ILB in the draft and getting him in the third round is great. Should compete for a starting job in his first year.

    96 – S – JIMMIE WARD – NORTHERN ILLINOIS
    – Top 3 safety in the draft and again fills another hole on the D.

    104 – DT – KELCY QUARLES – SOUTH CAROLINA
    – Good size and gets us younger at the D line where we need to get younger.

    136 – G – TRAI TURNER – LSU
    – Another top 3 at his position and couple help immediately.

    168 – RB – DE’ANTHONY THOMAS – OREGON
    – Broken Record Alert – Yet again another top 3 rated player at their position and I hoping that he can fill a possible Darren Sproles type position in the offense. Elite speed and exception hands.

    200 – CB – AARON COLVIN – OKLAHOMA
    – As a Viking fan you know we always need help in the secondary. Decent size and speed for the last round pick in the draft.

    Anyone can look good drafting for the Browns… they need everything and they have double digit picks. The true "good draft" is drafting for a playoff team. The Eagles have needs on defense, but the offense will need some new faces as well. An intriguing prospect is Zumwalt, who I get in the fifth round but who has a 2-3rd round talent for outside linebacker. In fact, this draft covers all team needs with good talent – see what I mean here:

    In my mocks teams seem to snag him in 3rd or 4th round. While I agree we need a younger QB behind Cutler (I view him as a three year window) I just can't see passing on some DT or Secondary help in the third or fourth for a backup QB. ..If he falls a little lower like into 5th then definitely… There's a lot of talk about Trestman knowing what to look for in a QB to run his system. His system certainly maxed the return on Josh McCown.

    Cowboys mock:

    16 FS CALVIN PRYOR LOUISVILLE – worst safeties in the league for over 15 years, time to end that…IMO, biggest need
    * Clinton-DIx option here. One of them will go ahead of 16. Cowboys need to take the other (both available in my mock)

    47 DT WILL SUTTON ARIZONA STATE – help on DL comes in R2, solidifying the middle

    78 DE TREVOR REILLY UTAH – rotate at LDE with Selvie, pushes Crawford inside to replace Hatcher
    * Jackson Jeffcoat option here to come spell Ware at RDE, (both available in my mock)

    115 ILB YAWIN SMALLWOOD UCONN – Sean Lee's neck is a concern (career threatening?)

    146 QB A.J. MCCARRON ALABAMA – Romo's back is a concern, time to groom replacement (same injury that led to Aikman retirement)

    177 DT RYAN CARRETHERS ARKANSAS STATE – Get another big guy in the middle, alternates with Hayden

    206 WR CODY LATIMER INDIANA – Miles Austin, surely cut with Terrance WIlliams taking over, draft for depth

    208 OLB KEVIN PIERRE-LOUIS BOSTON COLLEGE – SAM questionmark. Durant likely cap casualty, converted RDE and a guy that couldn't stay healthy and barely saw the field as the front runners.

  • daysend

    Pryor at #35? Dream world…

  • daysend

    You also better take Garoppolo with your #83 or you aren't having him either.

  • Tyler Forness

    While doing this draft, I tried to pick like Vikings GM Rick Spielman would, taking the best available player, while filling needs at the same time. If somehow Garopolo lasts until the fourth round, this draft rebuilds a porous Vikings defense, grabbing a guard in the later rounds whom they can groom into a starter like they have done in years past, and getting a young qb, of whom Norv Turner can groom into a successful starter. Mike Zimmer will have a lot of fun with the diverse talent in this draft class.

    Cleveland Browns,

    Not sure the debate ended. Personally, I think Johnny Manziel has a greater chance of duplicating Todd Marinovich's NFL career than being a franchise QB. My draft has 4 immediate starters, plus it addresses and covers potential Free agent losses of the Browns starting center and TJ Ward. Allowing that money to be spent on proven skill position players, like a WR and a Linebacker and a TE. The Offense will be a lot better if they get the ball more often and with better field position Hard for me to pass on Clowney… He'll just bend QB's …making the defense that much better. Clowney, Pryor , Swanson Richardson Sims and Hyde are all year one starters. McCarron could be a starter too, but am not sure what offense they are installing. Sims provide a versatile back a la Matt Forte that will help the QB and keep plays for positive yardage. AJ McCarron might have fallen out of favor but the guy is consistent on short and mid range throws. Protect the ball , make no mistakes and good things happen, Russell Wilson showed that, as did Josh McCown….Not sure I want a "gunslinger QB" Especially given the late season weather , I would rather pound and maul the opponents into submission. Here's the draft…

    Looks like you solved the defensive line problem.. Clowney and Hageman together would be terrorizing

  • Kerry Corn

    Alot of mocks by the media have the Cowboys taking a S in the first round, even have seen one projecting a CB. While I remain insistent that taking a S in the first is a mistake based on what happened with the Cowboys DL last year, I thought I'd take up the challenge of following the "pro" first round mocks and take the safety, then see if I could still improve the DL situation in day 2.
    The results were not bad, even if I still see S in the first as a mistake.

    16
    S CALVIN PRYOR
    LOUISVILLE- Had to chose between this kid and Clinton-Dix. Pryor seems to be a better fit, based on his ability to play the run and get after it in pursuit. He's a great coverage guy, rangy with good speed. I see him as athletically similar to Wilcox, the S we took last season, but with much greater exp. at the position.
    47
    DE SCOTT CRICHTON
    OREGON STATE – Instant coffee version of a pass rush, just add water. Crichton is fast, decent strength and did I mention fast? He's not just fast, he's sudden and a great fit for the Marinelli style def. Technique needs cleaned up, but he's a day one starter. Some rotation of Crichton, Ware, Selvie and Rayford could be a force on the edge.
    78
    DT DAQUAN JONES
    PENN STATE – He's a great fit at 3 technique but could play at either spot at DT. Quick first step, good power, run stuffer and can get to the QB.
    115
    DT CARAUN REID
    PRINCETON – So many players on this DL last season, taking Reid here makes sense on many levels. He had a great senior bowl, notable for his back to back sacks. He's great at gaining penetration, both stopping the run and creating pressure. This is my replacement for Hatcher.
    146
    QB DAVID FALES
    SAN JOSE STATE – Arm strength is a knock, but good pocket poise, great decision making, knows when to take the sack rather than throwing the wild pass. His mobility is also very good. Romo without the pick throwing tendencies.
    206
    WR JALEN SAUNDERS
    OKLAHOMA – Saunders plays much bigger than his size. His college film reminds me some of Steve Smith from Carolina. Undersized guy getting the job done on the outside against DB's 6 inches taller than he is. Speed, Speed, Speed. He's very versatile and could take the 3 wr position away from Beasley, who is, a B grade Wes Welker.
    208
    G MICHAEL SCHOFIELD
    MICHIGAN – I've talked about him a couple times, in other mocks, huge value at 208.
    215
    OT KENARIOUS GATES
    GEORGIA – Gates is a 320 pounder with the ability to play T or G, just like Schofield. He's very powerful and good in the run game. Reminds me some of Fluker from S.D. in that he's not a great bender, but still gets the job done. Technique is very sloppy and needs refining.

    A very big bodied Offensive tackle. With the addition of him, move Pasztor down to
    guard and instantly upgrade our Offense
    WR CODY
    LATIMER INDIANA
    Big bodied receiver ,can serve as a number 3 and a red zone threat, once developed.

    Overall
    This draft took a lot of major needs for the jaguars and used great additions to fix them. Clowney, Jeffcoat and Shazier create a more dominant, in your face dfense, that goes after the passer. Jimmy G and A.J give us needed passers behind Henderson and Watt, the addition of Henderson, moves Pasztor down to guard and creating a better offensive line.This draft is with the idea that hopefully a center is signed in free agency. Hyde is a dominant RB, that can add to todman and d-rob in the backfield for a punishing inside outside combination of speed and power. Mcgill is a huge CB, that is necessary for this defensive secondary to thrive in the system in place. Cody Latimer, can come in and compete and hopefully become that number 3 receiver and the red zone threat we've been missing outside of Marcedes.

  • Kerry Corn

    I also went with Watkins/Gilbert/Mason. Differences in the LB and QB choices. I leaned towards shoring up the OL in Cleveland and took the S earlier, I think. Pretty good draft here, maybe a little LB heavy, if Pettine move's towards a hybrid front.

  • Glenn

    BEARS MOCK DRAFT
    Yeah I know, I know, I know…. The Bears need to rebuild their defense….They have 5 holes in the 4/3 scheme they want to run…but they spent 20 million/year on Cutler… I figure I can trade Bushrod for a draft pick…. an experienced starting left tackle should bring me some value…. I also really don;t want to resign Roberta Garza..I think he;s done, and I don't want to spend $$$ on a FA center…. I do this…my O-line is golden (barring injury) It was tough because int his mock Khalil Mack was also on the board… I don;t know, moving McClellan to SAM, I have Briggs, and I have the two rookies from last year… and I also have DJ Williams who did alright before injury…I think I can get through another year on the Linebackers…and I know I have Bushrod… but top rated left tackle at pick 14….and being a Matthews, he'll probably play 20 years…
    Swanson is better and cheaper than Garza, even sat the NFL Minimum…. I get Johnson and Jones to shore up my piss poor D line, Jones I think could also flex into NT…if we are running a hybrid….Atone Exum is a baller if his knee checks out medically, I am assuming it does here, maybe he drops 10 and stays as CB or stays where he is and plays Safety… I'll figure that out after FA, The kid hits…James Wilder Jr as backup running back, Forte is durable, and I am cutting Bush and stopping this ridiculous practice of spending big on a backup RB…Bears have spent like $17M over the last 4 years on that positions…I mean seriously WTF. I 'll pick up a veteran FA RB as well….but a cheap one…Bush rushed for 63 yards last year…Behind this O-line Virginia McCaskey is good for 63 yards… Still need safety help so Tre fits a need and might pan out or contribute on special teams. I want a developmental Backup QB as well, not sure what McCown is going to cost me, I'll talk to Trestman and take his recommendation, after all he is the QB "whisperer". I know I need pass rush, I am releasing Peppers, not Signing Garza and Releasing Bush, I am also re-arranging Cutler's money I will get Bennett or the end from Oakland to come in. I don't think I will sign Melton, ACL injury… off season arrest… I am certainly not franchising him and get another FA who is good to very good…. This defense is going to take 2 years to rebuild anyway

    5. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
    It was a toss up between Manziel and Bridgewater. Went with the latter for a few reasons, namely the fact that Manziel's game may not translate well to the pro game.

    36. Marqise Lee, WR, USC
    Wow I can't believe Lee made it to the 2nd round. A receiving corps of Lee, Rod Streater, Andre Holmes, and Denarius Moore should give Bridgewater ample opportunities.

    67. Scott Crichton, DE, Oregon State
    Pretty good value early in the 3rd round, especially considering that Lamarr Houston's a free agent.

    103. Anthony Steen, OG, Alabama
    I think Steen's a firm mid-rounder, so he fits the range. Anything is better than Lucas Nix starting at guard.

    165. Hakeem Smith, S, Louisville
    It isn't clear if Charles Woodson is returning or not. Even so, depth is definitely needed in the secondary.

    196. Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma
    Colvin's stock is all over the place due to his knee injury. Getting him in the 7th round is worth the risk.

    212. Devon Kennard, OLB, USC
    Late round LB depth who can hopefully play special teams.

    146 – WR, BRUCE
    ELLINGTON (SOUTH CAROLINA) – Could be a great slot receiver for the
    'Boys. Also has value as a kick returner

    206 – G, BRANDON
    LINDER (MIAMI) – Would provide solid depth at guard, and has future
    starter potential

    208 – DT, CALVIN
    BARNETT (OKLAHOMA STATE) – Quick and athletic, good in pursuit, just
    needs to get stronger

    215 – CB, AARON COLVIN
    (OKLAHOMA) – Athletic corner back with good ball skills, and good
    tackler, will provide immediate depth

  • Ryan Rawlings

    CLEVELAND BROWNS 7 ROUND MOCK DRAFT: http://fanspeak.com/ontheclock/draft.php?d=vwpxzw

    Browns have cap space and will fill needs in Free Agency. Assuming the OLine is taken care of in Free Agency:

    4 QB TEDDY BRIDGEWATER , LOUISVILLE
    Bridgewater is my number 1 QB and if he and Manziel are gone, Clowney is the pick. If all 3 are gone (my worst nightmare!) trading down is a big option or select… Sammy Watkins.
    26 WR MARQISE LEE, USC

    Gilbert or Dennard could be the pick here but, for as deep as this draft is with WR's, Only Watkins, Evans, and Lee are 5 star prospects.
    35 DE TRENT MURPHY, STANFORD
    The value is too great here. I feel Murphy may be a top 15 pick come Draft Day. To me, on tape Murphy plays like Ryan Kerrigan. Add Murphy to the stable of pass rushers… He may turn out to be the best.
    71 ILB SHAYNE SKOV, STANFORD
    This need is clear. Browns got torched all season on underneath routes by TE's as well as Redzone TE completions.
    83 CB STANLEY JEAN- BAPTISTE, NEBRASKA
    Tall physical corner – which is becoming of great value – to play alongside Haden. Will push Skrine for the 2nd Corner spot. 102 RB LACHE SEASTRUNK , BAYLOR
    Browns need to reset at running back and could use more than one rookie to take on the load. Seastrunk has the most breakaway ability.
    123 RB MARION GRICE, ARIZONA STATE
    See above. RB's are the most injured player at any position position. Browns need to build a stable. Grice has more size and power than Seastrunk in the mould of CJ Spiller.
    133 CB ANTONE EXUM, VIRIGNIA TECH
    Will be listed as a free safety on roster and will provide Browns excellent depth at the position.
    164 QB TAJH BOYD, CLEMSON
    Presuming Campell is not retained. Browns steal a project QB who was once viewed as a 1st rounder
    195 WR CODY HOFFMAN, BYU
    This is the biggest steal and I believe Hoffman will realistically be a 4th- 5th round pick in May. Hoffman was as good in BYU's bowl game as Kyle Van Noy. He plays similar to Marquese Colston; big bodied, decent speed and reliable hands. I predict he will start in this league.

    I'd look for someone to trade for our 1st round pick. I'd like to get a 2nd and a 3rd round in exchange. With that I'd pick:

    2nd Round
    DT Will Sutton, Arizona State
    OT Jack Mewhort, Ohio State

    3rd Round
    QB Jimmy Garoppolo, Eastern Illinois

    CB Keith McGill, Utah

    4th Round
    S Craig Loston, LSU

    5th Round
    DE Brent Urban, Virginia

    6th Round
    OLB Ron Powell, Florida

    7th Round
    OG Mike Schofield, Michigan

    I think McGill and Loston start right away. We already have a good rotation of players at DE, DT and LB so Powell, Urban and Sutton immediately go into those rotations at their positions. They don't have the pressure of immediately having to be the starter and they get to learn playing alongside some already good players.

    Garoppolo either pushes Dalton and we get better QB play or Garoppolo starts. Mewhort starts if we lose Collins and Schofield is an extra OL which is always handy to have.

    Texans:

    1 QB Teddy Bridgewater Louisville
    finally have our franchise QB ready to lead us to the promise land

    33 FS Calvin Pryor Louisville
    the top rated safety on the board (in my opinion better that Ha Ha Clinton-Dix) and it fits a need after the Ed Reed debacle

    65 CB E.J. Gaines Missouri
    Brice McCain was horrible at covering the slot and with all the 3 & 4 wide sets, can't have enough quality plus
    he held Mike Evans to 4 catches for 8 yards this year

    97 ILB Yawin Smallwood UCONN
    we were hit with injuries last year and Cushing needs a running buddy. Smallwood should prove decent in the box and reliable and covering dragging TE's across the middle, quality pick here

    129 NT Daniel McCullers Tennessee
    finally a planetoid true nose tackle to clog the middle and take double teams from JJ Watt. Plus with Romeo Crennel coming in to implement a more traditional 2 gap 3-4 defense, we need someone of his bulk. 365lbs. nuff said

    161 WR Tevin Reese Baylor
    a 4.3 guy to take the tops of defenses. should help clear out some field for Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins. Will play in the slot opposite of my next pick

    193 TE Marcel Jensen Fresno State
    all he did was catch TD's from Derek Carr. Put him the endzone and go after jump balls. Typical former basketball player at 6-6 260lbs. sleeper pick here.

  • http://aceindustrial.com/ Mark Cravy

    i ran a simulation were is picked Jake Mathews with the first selection for the Texans and he was available @ #33. CRAZY

  • http://aceindustrial.com/ Mark Cravy

    that draft would be insane for the Browns, A for them, would probably add 4 wins easily next year.
    was wondering if AJ McCarron was still available @ #164. All he did was win.

  • Mike B

    Browns

    4 WR SAMMY WATKINS
    CLEMSON

    Rationale: Whether it is social media or various football analysts; there has been a lot of debate as to who the
    Browns should take here. A QB or a WR is by large the debate I have seen the most. Drafting a guy at #4 means that he is going to start this fall. So here is the thing. I don't believe Manziel, Bridgewater, Bortles or Carr could/would start over Hoyer this season. Sammy Watkins would be an immediate contributor opposite Josh Gordon. Watkins is perhaps the most NFL ready playmaker in this draft. The league watched Gordon blowup last year. Defenses are going to respect him this go around. Bringing Watkins into the fold gives the Browns depth and threat at the WR position going into the 2014 season.

    26 CB JUSTIN GILBERT
    OKLAHOMA STATE

    Rationale: So I like both Verrett and Gilbert. I personally would be fine with either, but Gilbert appears to have more the ideal size. It depends on how both of them workout. However, Gilbert opposite of Joe Haden; who wouldn't want that? It would be a much needed upgrade to the secondary.

    35 G DAVID YANKEY
    STANFORD

    Rationale: This seems like a no brainer. Shawn Lauvao is not the answer at RG. Yankey would be a tremendous upgrade for the Browns O-Line. I wouldn't mind Su'a-flio either. Just like the CBs, it depends on how these guys workout and/or how the draft progresses.

    71 S ED REYNOLDS
    STANFORD

    Rationale: So, various mock drafts I did had Clinton-Dix, and/or Pryor falling as far as the late second round. In some of those mocks I saw Pryor and/or Clinton-Dix available at 35..That seemed like sheer fantasy. I like Joyner, but I highly doubt he will be here at 71.
    Heck Reynolds might not either. That said, if he is, Reynolds would be an upgrade over Gipson who has struggled to fulfill the FS position. Adding Reynolds would solidify the secondary upgrading. For folks who don't know how important dual threat safeties are; please see Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas.

    83 QB JIMMY GAROPPOLO
    EASTERN ILLINOIS

    Rationale: I debated if this is even plausible. Garoppolo at 83 depends on a lot of things. How teams pick in the upper rounds and how he works out. It is also possible that other candidates like McCarron/Mettenberger/Murray/Boyd etc could increase their stocks as we
    approach the draft. But as it stands right now, I like him as a quality competitor for Hoyer. Heck, Garoppolo may be that sleeper QB prospect.

    102 RB CARLOS HYDE
    OHIO STATE

    Rationale: I am a Ohio State fan. I am not going to deny it. Coming from Columbus it is in my blood. That being said, I tried to remain
    as objective as possible when taking Hyde. Mason was gone in the second round. I am not sold on Carey/Seastrunk/Sims/Williams/Hill being that much better than Hyde. If anything, I love Hyde's aggressive running style and size. Browns need a RB and they got one with Hyde.

    123 ILB LAMIN BARROW
    LSU

    Rationale: I really think the Browns are going to resolve this position in free agency. That being said, both Craig Robertson and D'Qwell Jackson may not fit Pettine's hybrid defense. Barrow adds quality depth to the position.

    133 WR BRUCE ELLINGTON
    SOUTH CAROLINA

    Rationale: A replacement for Devone Bess/Greg Little. Ellington is an accomplished athlete with a strong build and interesting intangibles. Brings quality depth to the WR position.

    164 DE AARON LYNCH
    USF

    Rationale: Adds depth to the pass rush/hybrid defense. Great athlete, but still needs to be developed. Could be an interesting fit in the Browns defense.

    195 OT JUSTIN BRITT
    MISSOURI

    Rationale: A replacement for Cousins who likely walk in FA this year.

    78
    G DAKOTA DOZIER
    FURMAN…………………Played LT at Furman as a four year starter, was moved into the Guard position during practice for the East West Shrine Game. Transitioned flawlessly and garnered comparisons to Johnathan Cooper with his natural bend, strength, quickness and speed to get to the second level. Probably the drafts biggest steal,playing with Zach Martin, last years rookie Travis Fredrickson at C, LT Tyron Smith (Pro-Bowl and only 21yrs) G Ronald Leary(3rd yr), gives Dallas possibly the best young OL in the league and solidifies it as a team strength till 2022.

  • Glenn

    DE KONY EALY : with Shea McClellan moving to SAM, and the imminent release of Julius Peppers, we need pass rushers, he was available at the 14th pick, which is lucky… he'll be a contributor from the word go.
    CB JASON VERRETT: Maybe Peanut Tillman comes back, maybe not, seems lately we only get 1/2 season of Peanut anyway. but this guy paired with Jennings works, and we pick up some veteran help via FA.
    DT KELCY QUARLES: Henry Melton…mnn we franchised him last year, he got injured, then arrested..not sure he's a long term answer, not sure he is the difference maker we need, last year was the year to determine that..Think this kid will contribute on the rotation right away, and maybe become that consistent inside pressure we need

    C MARCUS MARTIN: 1st round talent in the 4th round, and it fills a big need, and potentially some $ as opposed to signing a FA center. Think he can step in and start. Our O-line is pretty well set barring injury

    DT DANIEL MCCULLERS; Huge and strong, think he will cover his gaps nicely and be really hard to move. Not sure if he can pressure the QB, but as part of the rotation, I do think he can shore up the run defense.
    DE JOSH MAURO: He's played inside and outside. He's big and strong, we need rotation players, and contributors, He's not lightning fast off the edge, but if he can push the pocket and play run defense, he will contribute as a 5th round pick
    QB TOM SAVAGE: big strong arm accurate passer who was massacred behind a crappy line in college. Not the most fleet a foot, but now that we have a decent O-line, she should do well here. Trestman can coach him up and he'll be a lot cheaper than McCowen, and has the arm that can make ALL the throws. I might have been able to sign him as a FA, but didn't want to take a chance. Also like the CB Aiken here too.

  • Glenn

    I wonder if a back like Charles SIms, who is a little more versatile and projects as a Matt Forte might be a better back to grab. Just thinking that the QB might want some better pass catching release options. Definitely agree with addressing the o-line, without protection it doesn't matter who the QB is and with protection less mistakes…I assume with two rookie guards you plan on resigning your FA center?

  • Shawn Bailey

    With $46 million in cap space, we have to resign our ALL-PRO center. I actually thought about Sims (He was obviously available when I took Hyde) but the weather in Cleveland, coupled with AFC North Smash-mouth football swayed me towards Carlos. I do, however, think I would be ecstatic with either. Having Schwartz, Joe Thomas, Alex Mack and these two guys would give us a very versatile and intelligent line. Thomas, Schwartz and Mack would be great mentors for the new guys.

  • Shawn Bailey

    I like the fact that you are resisting the urge to jump at one of the top quarterbacks…As a Browns' fan I've been looking at all of them and I'm not really that impressed with them as "Franchise Guys." Mack is an absolute beast, I think that Borland, Thomas and Sunseri are great value picks with huge upside at the positions you got them. I'm not a Hageman fan, but he is rated pretty highly and fills a need. If you can get Garoppolo at 104 he is a great fit for a team that plays inside…I'm not sure that he would be a great QB playing home games in the terrible weather of a Cleveland or a Buffalo. Overall, I love the effort you made here.

    Bridgewater was hard to pass up. A chance to have a franchise QB is something you take. Also I see him as the safest pick of the top three QBs in the draft and the Raiders can't afford to miss. Kouandjio at 36 is a steal and really helps the line. Even if they sign back Jared Veldheer, Kouandjio can compete with Menelik Watson to play right tackle and the "loser" can play guard. Both have a freakish combination of size, strength, and athleticism. Easley would be a full time starter right away. Michael Sam would be a huge help to a team desperate for a pass rush. Duncan would be able to compete for the starting tight end job seeing how Oakland has some pretty unremarkable tight ends. You can't have enough good corners. I hope they bring back Tracy Porter and Mike Jenkins for the right price. DJ Hayden gets a pass for his rookie year (coming off his near fatal injuy, dealing with other injuries during the season, not to mention being a rookie CB is tough! [look at Dee Milliner]). But even then Colvin is talented enough to compete for playing time with that group. Evans adds a WR to compete with a group that doesn't have a number one target on the team.

    The way I look at it, if somehow this draft happens you have three guaranteed day one starters (Bridgewater, Kouandjio, Easley). One guy who will get a lot of reps on passing downs (Sam). And three guys that can compete for playing time; possibly a lot of playing time (Duncan, Colvin, Evans).

  • T.R.

    He's the GM. Depends how he wants to build the team. Good fullbacks get used. Vonta Leach was the real team MVP during Baltimore's Super Bowl season.

  • T.R.

    Sorry about the short essay I wrote haha. Didn't seem long while I was writing it.

  • T.R.

    Besides, as an offensive line coach, I miss the days where everyone lined up in I and pounded it. I commend him for drafting a real football player!

  • T.R.

    With this draft anyone could play QB for them as long as they bring back Alex Mack. A Vietnam vet in a wheelchair could manage. Su'a-Filo takes left guard spot. Kouandjio and Mitchell Schwartz compete for the RT/RG spots. Carey casually walks for 150 yards a game behind that line. Between Gordon and Watkins they cant stack the box. If they do someone will be wide open. Wide open like that guy in Not Another Teen Movie waving his arms in the endzone with no one around him….yea…that open.

  • Glenn

    Keeping with Monday's theme of Best Available, I drafted according to highest ranked on the board when my pick came. It actually turned out pretty good.

    14 WR SAMMY WATKINS Think it was unrealistic that the universally recognized #1 receiver dropped to the 14th pick…but who am I to look a gift horse in the mouth. Pretty much means good bye to Earl Bennet….

    51 CB JASON VERRETT Highly rate CB play maker is available at #2 and just so happens we need a highly rated CB playmaker quite nice the way this is working out.

    82 DT DOMINIQUE EASLEY I need some studs on the D-Line and the best available in round three was a stud on D=line…

    113 QB JIMMY GAROPPOLO: Not sure if I would have drafted a QB here if I were not doing best available…but I got one…and I think this 4th rounder can be groomed into a first and third rounder in a year of two…look at what Trestman did for McCown in a year…

    144 ILB LAMIN BARROW A tough run defender….which if you watched at all last year, yuo know we definitely need

    167 DE TAYLOR HART more of a 3-4 end….good scouting report for a 6th rounder they think he would be contributing on 1st and 2nd downs…If you saw the defensive line…we need contributors, and the Bears may run some flex schemes this year…so hopefully not a wasted pick

    175 RB JAMES WILDER JR.

  • Joseph Bulger

    So because he won't be there I shouldn't have taken him when he was there? These are the results of the draft model. As for assuring when players will be drafted, that's a pretty valuable talent you've got there. Did you assure Tom Brady wouldn't last until the 6th round? I would have assured you that a Super Bowl MVP and HOFer wouldn't last until the 8th round until drafted by the Bears. Seriously, nobody can assure when a talented but raw and undisciplined WR will be drafted in a very deep WR draft class. The 11th pick in the 2nd round is not wildly out of the realm of possibility for this kid. He's a team's project to learn read route trees and options, which may take him quite a while. He has physical gifts, but he's a very unpolished route runner who in my humble opinion isn't among the top 5 receivers in this draft.

  • Joseph Bulger

    Ok… terrible. Sure. Got it. No, I wouldn't reach for a guard at 12, but this model doesn't allow you to trade down for additional picks which is what I'd do anyway. As for Beatty being done, you're out of your mind. He's not being cut, he's not sitting the bench, and he's not moving to Guard, or to RT. He'll start at LT, so you better get used to that fact. As for moving Pugh to inside, why? Because he was so bad at RT? Because his arms are short? Why move your best lineman according to PFF? Because he "belongs" there? Look, this is pretty simple. The Giants need blocking and pass protection. Baas and Snee want to play, but they may be done. We'll see. Boothe is versatile, but he's not a starter yet. So they need two Guards and a Center. They may or may not be on the roster. Getting the #1 Guard in the draft and the #1 Center in the draft isn't terrible by any stretch of the imagination. Terrible… please.

  • Mike D

    I mostly like it, but I don't know anything about Shaq Evans. However, I think they will go O-line at some point, whether it's an earlier value pick or instead of DAT, or a lower-end WR/DT. Someone like Patchan or Britt, maybe? But it seems whenever I draft as the Eagles on this site, I end up taking Mosley at #22 about 75% of the time, because he drops often and becomes BPA. In reality, I don't think he will drop, but on this site, it's him, Dennard, or Nix.

  • Mike D

    I like it, except getting two WRs seems unlikely to me, especially without drafting any O-line.

  • Ray

    San Francisco 49ers:

    30 CB JUSTIN GILBERT
    A legit #1 corner falls all the way to 30? Sounds good to me

    56 WR ALLEN ROBINSON
    Helps our redzone issues and is tough to bring down

    61 WR BRANDIN COOKS
    Even if Boldin is back it'll be a short deal and next year Crabtree is gonna bounce to start a reality show with his BFF Dez. Cooks can fly and finally give us a deep threat so I'm good with doubling up

    77 DE TREVOR REILLY
    Pass rush help is nice when your top guys like to let off AR's at house parties

    94 C WESTON RICHBURG
    Goodwin is gone so here's depth or even a starter

    Sounds like Whitner is coming back but our current backup is, uh, Craig Dahl. I rest my case

    158 QB DAVID FALES
    Backup QB potential

    189 DT RYAN CARRETHERS
    More big boy comp down in the trenches

    219 CB AARON COLVIN

    220 RB DRI ARCHER
    No way he's still here this late after yesterday

    222 TE COLT LYERLA
    Take a chance on an elite athlete. A little coke never hurt anyone anyway, right?

  • Bob B

    No, not at all. I'd have definitely taken him too. I'm just thinking that with all the hype he's getting at the combine he'll get picked earlier than he probably should.

  • Joseph Bulger

    Not bad Wes. Really like Niklas as our TE… bone crushing blocking specialist who can catch the ball in traffic and move the chains. Not sold on Boreland… love his heart, and his nose for the ball, but he's not big and he's not fast and he's not real athletic. Is he better than Herzlich? Don't know… he must be much, much better to deserve a #3 pick when the Giants have huge holes at Guard. You grabbed a great Tackle, but if Snee can't go, and Boothe finds FA gold someplace else, we have no Guards worth mentioning. Move Beatty inside? No. That won't work at all. Pugh inside and Beatty to RT? Beatty is a finesse Tackle, not suited for RT at all. Sit Beatty? Really? Sit all that money? No. Protect Beatty. Beatty needs protection… that's the kind of LT he is. He needs a good LG and a good pass pro RB and a good blocking TE to protect him. In 2013, Beatty lost all that… JR exchanged Bradshaw for Wilson and that's a huge drop off. JR exchanged Bennett for Myers, and that's another huge drop off. Then Baas goes to IR, Cordle too, and Boothe moves to Center. Beatty lost all his protection. Protect Beatty and he'll be fine… draft Yankey or Su'a-Filo next to Beatty, you have Niklas who's the best blocking TE in college, and I guess Sankey can pass pro… he's no Carlos Hyde, but he has to be better than Wilson.

  • Joseph Bulger

    Well, how do you feel about Benjamin now? I think my prediction that he's not among the top 5 receivers in the draft is conservative after that disappointing showing… a few WRs really shined, but he wasn't one of them. But that could be good for us! If he falls to us at 43rd JR should snatch him up. He'll need some work, but he has a big ceiling.

  • Jon

    Shaq Evans went to UCLA. He's 6'1 213 with good reach and arm length and also has bulky muscular frame. He probably can play inside or outside. He ran a 4.50 at the Combine and did OK in the field drills. Only reason he drops is because of his route running. He sometime cant get separation. But yea that 3rd round pick can be anything. I do think they will spend there first two pick on defensive players. Mosley I don't think will drop that far neither. Mad he didn't run the 40 at the combine but he looked good in the drills. Think he's a top 15 pick. If Justin Gilbert drops to this pick I'm snatching him in a heartbeat.

  • Bob B

    Yeah, he really hurt himself with that shitful 40 time. But you can't go by one run. Def. worth taking at 43. If he's not there, there are a TON of good receivers this year.

  • Bob B

    My most interesting EAGLES draft in a while:

    22 ILB C.J. MOSLEY
    ALABAMA
    He can play inside or outside. Can cover downfield and is a great leader. Great guy to start outside, then move into Ryans' spot.

    54 S DEONE BUCANNON
    WASHINGTON STATE
    Love this guy. Big hitter, can plug and play.

    86 ILB CHRISTIAN JONES
    FLORIDA STATE
    Its important to build a linebacking corps if you run a 3-4. Jones is another who can play either spot.

    118 DT JUSTIN ELLIS
    LOUISIANA TECH
    A load who wowed them at the senior bowl. will allow us to be more flexible with Logan, and not wear him down.

    150 CB ANTONE EXUM
    VIRIGNIA TECH
    More much-needed secondary help. A big corner who might project to safety.

    157 RB DE’ANTHONY THOMAS
    OREGON
    Offensive weapon and an effective kick returner. Chip Kelly will have all kinds of fun with DAT.

    214 OLB BOSEKO LOKOMBO
    OREGON

    Another Duck for Chip. Can contribute right away as he is an excellent special teamer.

    Thanks for reading…

  • Joseph Bulger

    Agreed… and what's more, a ton of big as in tall receivers. Between Cruz and Jernigan, the Giants have enough of the smallish guys. Grab one of the big ones who has leaping skills… Martavis Bryant, Jordan Matthews, Donte Moncrief, Kevin Norwood, Allen Robinson… and even though they're all taller receivers, some of them have exceptional speed too. One of them has to drop…
