Your mock is weak and frail. My mock is supreme. My mock is better than parental approval.

1. Houston Texans: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina

 

The public pressure to draft Texas icon Johnny Manziel might be intense, but no more intense than it was in 2006 when Vince Young was on the board. The Texans made the right call then, (drafting Mario Williams instead), and they’ll repeat history here. Clowney’s 2013 season was a disaster on the field and off, but every one of Clowney’s recent DUI infractions were quickly forgotten when he dropped a 4.47/40 time at the Combine. Ultimately, it will come down to GM Rick Smith (and owner Bob McNair) coming to the conclusion that Clowney is simply a better prospect, and less of a gamble, than any of this year’s QBs.

 

Alternate pick: Teddy Bridgewater: While the popular QB pick in many mocks has been Blake Bortles, it needs to be pointed out that people just assume that Bill O’Brien has a blood-lust to draft tall, white QBs because he’s had them in New England and Penn State. If, indeed, O’Brien is banging the table for a lanky Caucasian, the Texans could draft Clowney, and then look to trade for former O’Brien protégé Ryan Mallett.

 

 

 

 

2. St. Louis Rams: Greg Robinson, OLT, Auburn

 

The Rams are in the catbird seat with this pick, as they will no doubt find themselves entertaining offers from other teams to move up for Bortles, Manziel, or Bridgewater. However, the opportunity to lock down a freak like Robinson will help Rams GM Les Snead resist the temptation to pull the trigger on any trades.

 

Alternate pick: Bridgewater or Bortles— Jeff Fisher claims he loves Sam Bradford and is willing to give Bradford every shot to be the Rams’ long-term answer at QB, but then the Rams have gone on to decline to extend Bradford’s contract. Bradford was the last of the super-overpaid first-overall pick (prior to the new CBA), and he’s never lived up to the contract or the draft status, and Fisher already knows how hard it is to try and maintain a consistent winner when you’re starting QB is always in the trainer’s room from his Tennessee/Steve McNair days.

 

 

 

 

3. Minnesota Vikings (trade w/ Jacksonville): Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M

 

The Vikings are a boring team looking to get a stadium built for the 2016 season, so they’ll happily jump ahead of the Browns to pick up the most electric (if riskiest) player in the draft. Manziel is already a media superstar, and he’ll combine with Adrian Peterson and Cordarelle Patterson to give the franchise some much-needed juice. Whether or not Manziel’s game translates to the NFL remains to be seen, but he’ll keep the Vikings relevant until the paint dries on their new arena.

 

Alternate pick: The Vikings could sit tight and take the Best Available QB, or they could stand pat and give Mike Zimmer a much-needed pass rusher in Khalil Mack or Anthony Barr.

 

 

 

 

4. Cleveland Browns: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson

 

Getting drafted by the Browns will be a drag for Watkins, but the good news is that he’ll instantly be fourth in line to assume GM duties once Jimmy Haslam gets his name on a contract. Haslam allegedly was in love with the idea of bringing Manziel to Cleveland, so current pseudo-interim GM Ray Farmer may not make it to Round Two if Minnesota beats him to Johnny Football. Watkins, with TE Jordan Cameron and WR Josh Gordon, will give the Browns three great targets for whoever wins the QB Competition in Cleveland, and for whomever wins the Head Coaching Competition in Cleveland.

 

Alternate pick: Haslam could still trade this pick for Jim Harbaugh, John Harbaugh, Bill Belichick, or the putrefied remains of Marv Levy.

 

 

 

5. Oakland Raiders: Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo

 

Literally everyone on the Raiders’ payroll is likely to get fired before the end of the season, so GM Reggie McKenzie needs to find an immediate impact player right away in order to have any chance of staying off the unemployment line next January. Mack is that kind of instant-impact player that can come in and immediately improve a defense.

 

Alternate pick: Bortles or Bridgewater—as always the Raiders are looking for QB help, but neither the GM nor the HC have the time to waste on developing any of the QBs in this year’s draft, especially considering the 2015 draft has possibly four QBs (Hundley, Winston, Mariota, Petty) that are far better prospects than any QB in this year’s group.

 

 

 

 

6. Atlanta Falcons: Jake Matthews, OLT, Texas A&M

 

Matt Ryan was sacked nine times by the Panthers in the finale of the Falcons’ disastrous 2013 season. That was bad. Ryan isn’t especially equipped to handle physical contact in the same way that vampires aren’t especially equipped to handle sunlight, so getting him a capable left tackle is an absolute must.

 

Alternate pick: Anthony Barr—the Falcons couldn’t protect their passer, and they couldn’t rush the opposing passer, either. If they hope to leap back into contention, they desperately need to remedy both issues.

 

 

 

 

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State

 

 

The rumors of new GM Jason Licht looking to move Darrelle Revis’ mammoth (unguaranteed) contract are already circulating, and doing so makes all the sense in the world considering HC Lovie Smith’s preference for the Cover-2, Charles Tillman’s pending availability, and the absurdity of paying anyone $16 million to drop back into zone. It will suck to have handed the Jets their 2013 first rounder (which became DROTY Sheldon Richardson), but Licht can cut the Jets’ 2014 compensation from a 3rd to a 4th by simply removing Revis from the roster, saving $16 mil in the process. Dennard represents an exponentially cheaper substitute whose physical style reminds some of Revis.

 

Alternate pick: Bortles—Tampa reportedly isn’t sold on the long-term prospects of handing Mike Glennon the starting job, and they’ve been rumored to want to upgrade the QB position, at least from an internal competition standpoint. However, like Kansas City two years ago, the Bucs are a talented team that grossly underachieved under a totalitarian Jerseyite warlord in Greg Schiano, and would benefit more in the short-term from finding QB help in the veteran market, the same way that KC plugged in Alex Smith and made it to the playoffs.

 

 

 

 

8. Jacksonville Jaguars (trade w/Minnesota): Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State

 

Jags HC Gus Bradley coached Carr in the Senior Bowl and was reported to have come away fairly impressed with Carr’s personality, his arm, and his accuracy. If Carr was able to dispel some of the questions about his happy feet in the pocket and laid-back Cali surf-breh vibe, he might be the best QB in this draft, considering his arm strength, size, and the video-game stats he put up on the college level.

 

Alternate pick: The Jaguars need help at almost every position, so literally any player you mock to them at any point makes perfect sense.

 

 

 

 

9. Buffalo Bills: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina

 

If the Doug Marrone regime is going to prosper in Buffalo, they need to get EJ Manuel to play better, and in order to get EJ Manuel to play better, they need to give him more options at receiver. While Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods is a nice tandem on the outside, and CJ Spiller can be dangerous out of the backfield, the Bill offense needs someone to challenge the middle of the field offensively. Ebron fits perfectly.

 

Alternate pick: Taylor Lewan—Manuel was perpetually nicked up as a rookie and the Bills were pulling guys in off the street to play QB for them as the season wore on. Giving Manuel some extra protection is a must.

 

 

 

 

10. Detroit Lions: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

 

The Lions have been compiling horses in the front seven of their defense, but their secondary hasn’t taken advantage of the pressure that Suh, Fairley, and company create. Gilbert is enigmatic, but he’s a gifted athlete in the Antonio Cromartie mold who can step in and cause some turnovers.

 

Alternate pick: Marquis Lee—Megatron is a dominant receiver, but he could use some help on the other side of the field, particularly a quicker guy like Lee, who does a lot of his damage in between the numbers.

 

 

11. Tennessee Titans: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville

 

The Titans opted not to pick up Jake Locker’s option, so he’s essentially on a one-year deal where he gets less than twelve months to show new HC Ken Whisenhunt that he can 1. Stay healthy, and 2. Continue to show the improvement he displayed last year before getting injured in Week Four against the Jets. It would behoove the Titans to hedge their bets on Locker by picking up Teddy Bridgewater, who may be the best pure passer in the draft. Worst case scenario is that Locker starts to fulfill his promise under Whisenhunt, and Tennessee has a nice trade chip next season in Bridgewater.

 

Alternate pick: Mike Evans—Kenny Britt is just a bad memory at this point for Tennessee, and Kendall Wright needs another vertical receiver to help open things up for him.

 

 

 

 

12. New York Giants: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M

 

Mike Evans made a college career out of reeling in passes from Johnny Football off of broken plays. These days, every play that Eli Manning runs looks like a broken play, so this would be a perfect marriage. Malcontent malingerer free agent Hakeem Nicks will not be back, so Evans can step right into that spot as the big receiver Eli has lacked since Plaxico Burress shot a hole in his own sweatpants.

 

Alternate pick: Anthony Barr—while the Giants hope and pray that Jason Pierre-Paul will return to form, there’s no guarantee that he makes it all the way back from his injuries, and Perry Fewell’s defense is absolutely pathetic when it can’t get pressure on the quarterback.

 

 

 

 

13. Dallas Cowboys (trade with St. Louis): Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA

 

GM Jerry Jones and Owner Jerry Jones sat down with Capologist Jerry Jones and concluded, apparently, that it was time to move on from DeMarcus Ware, which greatly saddened DC Jerry Jones and annoyed HC Jerry Jones, not to mention drawing the ire of the Cowboys fanbase, led by SuperFan Jerry Jones. GM Jones trades up for Barr, who steps into Ware’s vacated roster spot.

 

Alternate pick: It’s difficult to see how Jerry Jones could move up for Johnny Football, but it’s equally hard to see him not at least try to move up for Johnny Football.

 

 

14. Chicago Bears: Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame

 

 

It’s hard to believe that the once-mighty Bears were the worst team in the league against the rush last season, but they were, and they need help at DT in the worst way. Nix can be a monster on the inside.

 

Alternate pick: Hasean Clinton-Dix—The Bears defense needs all kinds of help, both up front and in the secondary. Current starters Major Wright and Chris Conte represent one of the least athletic pairs in the league.

 

 

 

 

15. Pittsburgh Steelers: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

 

The number one item on the list of the Steelers’ organizational priorities is keeping Ben Roethlisberger healthy. The second item is to keep Ben Roethlisberger from killing Todd Haley. Lewan is big and athletic enough to help achieve both items.

 

Alternate pick: Troy Niklas—the Steelers need a replacement for stalwart Heath Miller, and Niklas’ game is in Miller’s class as a blocker and tough, instinctive receiver.

 

 

 

 

16. St. Louis Rams: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville

 

Jeff Fisher’s defenses require rangy, hard-hitting safeties, and he’s more than happy to plug Pryor into what is an ascending, talented defense.

 

Alternate pick: Hasean Clinton-Dix—Pryor gets the edge because of his range.

 

 

 

 

17. Baltimore Ravens: Hasean Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama

 

Losing Ed Reed and Ray Lewis was always going to be painful, and replacing them, obviously, was going to be difficult. Drafting Clinton-Dix here starts to fill the hole left behind by Reed’s departure.

 

Alternate pick: Marquis Lee—The Ravens need a complement to Torrey Smith, and while Jacoby Jones is a dynamic speedster, no one is confusing him with a legitimate starter at WR.

 

 

 

 

18. New York Jets: Blake Bortles, QB, UCF

 

The reaction at Radio City Music Hall to this pick will be priceless. If Bortles slides past Tennessee at 11, none of the teams between them and the Jets need QB help. The Jets were one of eight teams to interview Bortles at the Combine, so he’s on their radar. The question then becomes, how much are they all committed to Geno Smith moving forward? Smith had a well-publicized up-and-down season in 2013, but it appeared that he was on the upswing as the season closed, when he posted an 83.6 QB rating over the last four games. However, that was soon followed by a somewhat embarrassing dick-pic scandal, then by seeing Smith getting thrown off of a Virgin Airlines flight after arguing with a flight attendant. Neither of those things are career-jeopardizing infractions, obviously, but those lapses in judgment (along with his spotty play on the field) could possibly combine to lead GM John Idzik to want to cover his bases regarding the franchise’s most valuable position. Idzik knows from his Seattle days that loading up at QB is the way to go—they drafted Russell Wilson the same year they gave Matt Flynn a giant free agent contract—and judging by his first draft, he’s not afraid to use a pick at a position of strength if that prospect is the best available player on his board. Blake Bortles will almost certainly be the BAP on the Jets’ board if he slides this far.

 

Alternate pick: Marquis Lee—The Jets need weapons in the worst way.

 

 

19. Miami Dolphins: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia

 

As you may have heard, the Dolphins quietly went through some in-season re-shuffling of their offensive line last season. Losing two starters on the OL propels this into a giant need pick, and Moses might be the best of what’s left at the OT position. Moses has drawn comparisons to former Chargers steal Marcus McNeil.

 

Alternate pick: Cyrus Kouandjio—Once considered a top-20 pick, the talk of Kouandjio having an arthritic knee, along with a brutal Combine performance, costs him here.

 

 

 

 

20. Arizona Cardinals: Dee Ford, OLB, Auburn

 

Ford’s Senior Bowl performance has him rocketing up draft boards, where Arizona will gladly take the best remaining pass rusher available.

 

Alternate pick: Jace Amaro—The Cardinals are one big receiver away from making Carson Palmer look like he enjoys football again.

 

 

 

 

21. Green Bay Packers: Timmy Jernigan, DT, FSU

 

The Packers are going to let BJ Raji walk so they can get lighter and faster on the defensive line to better fit Dom Capers’ scheme. Jernigan (6’2″, 299 lbs.) fits the bill.

 

Alternate pick: Aaron Donald—Like Jernigan, light, quick, and disruptive.

 

 

 

 

22. Philadelphia Eagles: CJ Mosley, LB, Alabama

 

While Chip Kelly is on the way to turning the offense into a juggernaut, it’s incumbent upon GM Howie Roseman to rebuild the defense on the fly. Mosley gives the Eagles the ILB they’ve lacked since Chuck Bednarik retired.

 

Alternate pick: Marquis Lee—There has been chatter around the Eagles franchise that they’re prepared to either cut or trade perpetually unhappy receiver DeSean Jackson. Lee would slide into that role nicely.

 

 

 

 

23. Kansas City Chiefs: Marquis Lee, WR, USC

 

The Chiefs field an offense that got a lot of production out of role players, but needs to add a star receiver and TE to the mix to take it over the top. Lee would help round out a very nice receiving corps (with Dwayne Bowe and Donnie Avery) that would cause a lot of problems for opposing secondaries.

 

Alternate pick: Zack Martin, OG, Notre Dame—Andy Reid loveeeees his offensive linemen.

 

 

 

 

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama

 

The Bengals are a team that has never been afraid to take a chance on any player, and they’ve been rewarded for those gambles many times during Marvin Lewis’ tenure (Vontaze Burfict, Andre Smith, for two). Kouandjio may not have an especially long career, but, like Marcus McNeil, he could be a special player for a handful of seasons.

 

Alternate pick: Any non-ginger QB who can be ready to step in at a moment’s notice.

 

 

 

 

25. San Diego Chargers: Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

 

The Chargers were a revelation last season under rookie head coach Mike McCoy, but if they’re going to take the next step, they’ll need to upgrade their defensive and offensive lines. Hageman is gifted, but a project.

 

Alternate pick: Jace Amaro—It’s always tempting to give a good quarterback more targets to throw to, and Phillip Rivers knows how to find his tight ends. With Antonio Gates getting toward the end, now could be the time to find his replacement,

 

 

 

 

26. Cleveland Browns: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

 

New, temporary, interim head coach Mike Pettine will want a corner to pair with Joe Haden so he can run his blitz packages without fear of getting torched in the secondary. With Barkevious Mingo, Jabaal Sheard, and Paul Kruger at OLB, the Browns could lead the league in sacks if the DBs step up.

 

Alternate pick: Zach Mettenberger—The Browns need to find their QB of the future while Brian Hoyer remains as QB of the present. While it’s iffy to try and look ahead at anything the Browns might do, stashing Mettenberger on the roster as a developmental project could pay huge dividends.

 

 

 

 

27. New Orleans Saints: Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State

 

Rob Ryan did a great job resurrecting a moribund New Orleans defense, but he did much of it with smoke and mirrors in the defensive backfield. Roby is talented but inconsistent, and if Ryan can get through to him, he represents an upgrade from what the Saints are currently running out there in Corey White and Kennan Lewis.

 

Alternate pick: Lache Seastrunk—Pierre Thomas is always injured, and Mark Ingram has been a bust. The Saints are vulnerable on the road in part because they don’t have a consistent, reliable rushing attack. Seastrunk could be the answer to those problems.

 

 

 

 

28. Carolina Panthers: Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU

 

Brandon LaFell is a free agent and Steve Smith is at the end of the line in Carolina, so it’s beyond time to give Cam Newton some new weapons to work with. Benjamin is a huge target that Newton will fall deeply in love with, particularly in the red zone where the Panthers struggled in 2013.

 

Alternate Pick: Antonio Richardson—Jordan Gross retired, leaving a major hole on that Panthers OL.

 

 

 

 

29. New England Patriots: Odell Beckham Jr., WR, LSU

 

Is this the year that Bill Belichick admits that Tom Brady needs help on offense? Probably not, because Bill Belichick confesses to NOTHING. That said, Beckham is a great value pick here, and would be the best wideout Brady has had since Randy Moss was thrown off the roster.

 

Alternate pick: Joel Bitonio, OT, Nevada—Is Bitonio a projected first rounder? No, but that’s never stopped Belichick before.

 

 

 

 

30. San Francisco 49ers: Dominique Easley, DE, Florida

 

Easley blew out the ACL in both knees (one in 2011, the other in 2013), but before that he was considered a potential high first-round pick. When your roster is as stacked as the 49ers is, you can afford to take a gamble on a talented player who may need a little time to come back from injury. If Easley rounds back into form, the Niners will have a major steal on their hands.

 

Alternate pick: Trent Murphy, OLB, Stanford—the Niners defense looked pretty ordinary when OLB Aldon Smith was out on suspension. While Murphy is no Smith, he can add to the great Niners pass rush while at the same time covering a few backs if Smith should have any issues in the future.

 

 

 

 

31. Denver Broncos: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt

 

Eric Decker is likely to depart as a free agent, so it makes a ton of sense to replace him with a player of similar size and ability. Matthews is smart enough to learn the Broncos offense, and will be an early front-runner for Offensive Rookie of the Year if he earns Peyton Manning’s trust in training camp.

 

Alternate pick: Zack Martin, OG, Notre Dame—It’s imperative that Manning doesn’t get touched next season, and starting OG Zane Beadles is a free agent.

 

 

 

 

32. Seattle Seahawks: Davante Adams, WR, Fresno State

 

UFA Golden Tate is expected back, but Doug Baldwin—an RFA—could be sacrificed this offseason in an attempt to upgrade the position for Russell Wilson. If Percy Harvin can stay healthy, Adams could be the big complementary receiver the Seahawks offense has lacked.

 

Alternate pick: Brandin Cooks—If the Seahawks want to spare Harvin the abuse of returning kicks, they could draft the dynamic Cooks to assume the duties without too much fall-off.

 

 

 

ROUND TWO

 

 

33. Houston Texans: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU

 

 

34. Washington Redskins: Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State

 

 

35. Cleveland Browns: Carlos Hyde, RB, Ohio State

 

 

36. Oakland Raiders: Zack Martin, OG, Notre Dame

 

 

37. Atlanta Falcons: Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech

 

 

38. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State

 

 

39. Jacksonville Jaguars: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh

 

 

40. Jacksonville Jaguars (trade w/Vikings): Xavier Su’a Filo, OG, UCLA

 

 

41. Buffalo Bills: Dion Bailey, S, USC

 

 

42. Tennessee Titans: Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame

 

 

43. New York Giants: Gabe Jackson, OG, Mississippi

 

 

44. St. Louis Rams: AJ McCarron, QB, Alabama

 

 

45. Detroit Lions: Jason Verett, CB, TCU

 

 

46. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU

 

 

47. Dallas Cowboys: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington

 

 

48. Baltimore Ravens: Tre Mason, RB, Auburn

 

 

49. New York Jets: Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State

 

 

50. Miami Dolphins: Scott Crichton, OLB, Oregon State

 

 

51. Chicago Bears: Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame

 

 

52. Arizona Cardinals: Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri

 

 

53. Green Bay Packers: Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB/S, Nebraska

 

 

54. Philadelphia Eagles: DeAnthony Thomas, RB/WR/KR, Oregon

 

 

55. Cincinnati Bengals: Marcus Smith, OLB, Lousiville

 

 

56. San Francisco 49ers: David Yankey, OG, Stanford

 

 

57. San Diego Chargers: Carl Bradford, ILB, Arizona State

 

 

58. New Orleans Saints: Antonio Richardson, ORT, Tennessee

 

 

59. Indianapolis Colts: Travis Swanson, C, Arkansas

 

 

60. Carolina Panthers: Jack Mewhort, OT, Ohio State.

 

 

61. San Francisco 49ers: Louchiez Purifoy, CB, Florida

 

 

62. New England Patriots: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU

 

 

63. Denver Broncos: Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor

 

 

64. Seattle Seahawks: Richard Rodgers, TE, Cal

that was a lot of effort to make bortles fall, lol

 

 

Smaller school, not the huge arm, mechanical issues, something of a project, and a 2015 QB draft that's so much better than this one that not one of this year's QB's would be considered first rounders next year. I think either Bortles or Bridgewater will be sitting there when we pick.

OK. Honestly.... how long did that take you??

 

The typing alone would have taken me 2 days.

 

Appreciate all the thought that went into that.

 

Not sure how I feel about Bortles @18. I think I would trade back if possible with a QB needy team like Cleveland @26. Then go heavy WR, TE, OT/OG in the 1st 3 rds.

 

Then maybe go QB later.

Ok, well it's only fun to rip other peoples mock so here it goes...

*Aaron Donald at #39 is retarded yo. You're about, say, 30 slots off. 

*Your QBs in reverse dummy

*D'Anthony Thomas in the second? Hmmm

*Sorta think Moncrief, Martavis Bryant, and Richardson could be better options than Adams. I dunno. But you don't even have any in the second?  

*I was aaalso thinking Jackson Jeffcoat was looking like a good second rounder. 

 

errrr, ah, that's all I got. Good job!! These take a sh*t load of time.

Is this what you think will happen, or what you hope will happen? I'm not knocking your mock (it's obvious that you put a lot of thought into it), I just think Bortles dropping that far is very unlikely.

I wouldn't mind if things fell this way.

Thanks. I think Idzik would jump on Bortles if he was there, and I don't think teams are as in love with him as much as the draft media is, if only because the evaluations on him swing so much (some have him as the first overall, while others have him in the late teens). Either there's just a lot of smoke surrounding him and Bortles, or there's just a lot of teams that aren't feeling these QBs.

As far as the effort, I've had this doc open for a month. I'd screw around with it every so often. When I saw that Bortles was "sliding" in my mind, I figured I should just finish it today. I'm a tremendous loser.

Can't see Bortles falling to 18, but I will say this, you did a great job setting it up, and yeah I guess it's possible.

I wouldn't mind it. Good job

Thanks, Al. I think if Bortles gets past 11, he'll slide. You've got the Giants, Steelers, Rams, Baltimore, etc after that, and none of those guys need QB. Just a guess on my part.

If we draft Bortles i will literally quit, there's no way that Idzik will do this when all that has been talked about this offseason is adding weapinz, not another rookie (read terrible) QB.

 

All I'm gonna say is, if for some god only knows reason, Bridgewater is there 18, I'll sh*t if they don't take him.

I just don't feel like this is the draft to take another QB aside from maybe Johnny at 18 (which isnt gonna happen cause he isnt gonna be there). Id rather draft a solid WR/TE and ride out another year with Geno to see what he has.

BRING IT.

*Aaron Donald at #39 is retarded yo. You're about, say, 30 slots off.

Because of his size, Donald probably has to play in a 4-3 front. I don't think he works on every team. Pre-Combine, he was consistently mocked as a late-first/second rounder. I'm always wary of guys flying up "boards" after the Combine.

*Your QBs in reverse dummy

The only reason you'd draft Bortles over Bridgewater is because Bortles is two inches taller and thirty pounds heavier. If you're basing it strictly on arm talent, Bridgewater kills Bortles all day.

*D'Anthony Thomas in the second? Hmmm

This is based on a few things: 1. He's been extremely productive and versatile in three years of college: 26 rushing TDs/15 receiving TDs/5 return TDs. 2. Chip Kelly wants to replace D. Jackson, and Thomas can do a lot of what Jackson does. 3. I think he'll run in the 4.3's at his Pro Day, wiping out the 4.5 official he ran at the Combine.

*Sorta think Moncrief, Martavis Bryant, and Richardson could be better options than Adams. I dunno. But you don't even have any in the second?

Moncrief and Bryant are track stars playing receiver. Paul Richardson could go in the second, but he looks frail. Adams has the body of a pro, reminding people of Alshon Jeffrey.

*I was aaalso thinking Jackson Jeffcoat was looking like a good second rounder.

I think he's in there with the Chris Smith/Marcus Smith set that will get drafted by request of a team's defensive coordinator based on personal preference. All are kind of limited.

errrr, ah, that's all I got. Good job!! These take a sh*t load of time.

Just wondering, what will you do if he's there and they pass? JMO, but I think it's very possible.

The Seahawks didn't need Russell Wilson when they drafted him. Young QBs are a resource that, if refined properly, elevates your entire franchise overnight. Bortles, IMO, has that kind of potential. I don't think he's any lock to be great but, like with Nick Foles, if you get him in the right situation, he could blow up.

I think this is what will happen. I consider where the franchises are in terms of competing (or rebuilding), what the coaching situation is, what kind of security the GM has, etc, and I just guess at which player they'll want. I don't like Manziel, for instance, but I can see Zygi Wilf being desperate for some publicity to distract from how awful his franchise has been.

I honestly wouldn't be heartbroken. I'd love to have him but we would just be in the same situation as we were with Geno, a rookie QB w/o any weapons. Unless we go hard after free agent WR/TE but that pool of FA is quickly drying up.

I guess I don't mind Bortles, he plays the right position to be a little overrated. He's got all the tools to develop, and Morhinweg is an excellent coach. 

 

Is Hageman really only a mid-20s guy?

The Seahawks didn't need Russell Wilson when they drafted him. Young QBs are a resource that, if refined properly, elevates your entire franchise overnight. Bortles, IMO, has that kind of potential. I don't think he's any lock to be great but, like with Nick Foles, if you get him in the right situation, he could blow up.

 

They also took Wilson in the 3rd round, im fine taking a project in the 3-7th round just not with the 18th pick. Id love Murray in the later rounds.

The consensus on Hageman (that I've been reading) is that he's the most physically talented, but is incredibly raw. Donald and Jernigan are now considered "better" prospects because they're more technically sound or some such. I don't know. People talk a lot of sh*t.

Thanks, Al. I think if Bortles gets past 11, he'll slide. You've got the Giants, Steelers, Rams, Baltimore, etc after that, and none of those guys need QB. Just a guess on my part.

Only question in there is if the Rams take a look. Not sure they are as settled at QB as we might think. Is intriguing that the Jets choose to interview a guy who will not be there in rouind 2, unless it's smoke and mirrors in trade talk.

I really don't think we are committed to Geno. Gut instinct.

Fisher has been talking up Bradford this offseason, but they "declined" to extend his contract, making him eminently cuttable at the end of next season. If they wanted to, they could cut him now without too much of a cap hit (IIRC). I do think they'll look at QBs, but I also think they'll hold off on investing too much until it becomes dead certain that Bradford just isn't the guy.
