Re: 09 Mock Draft
Okay, depending on our DL/DT situation and what the staff thinks (happy with the player we have, their development- Deljuan, Okam, etc) or a new DC that uses our current DL a little different... let's assume BJ Raji isn't available or isn't the pick. I'm all for BPA and not taking just the next best player at position X. If it's a LB, S, CB, DT, DE, OG, etc... take him. With that said:
1st- FS/SS Taylor Mays- USC
With the addition of Mays, we've found our best safety. He's a big S that will stop the run and has the speed to cut off passes. If Wilson stays in as FS, Mays is our SS with backups of CC and Demps maybe Harrison, etc. In anycase Jacque Reeves needs help over top as do Dunta and Bennett, lord knows faggins does too.
2nd- SLB Clint Sintim- Virginia
Sintim is a good pass rusher that is suited for the 3-4 or is able to play SLB in the 4-3. This leaves us with starting LB's of WLB- Adibi, ProBowl MLB- Demeco and SLB- Sintim. Opposing offenses will have to account for possible blitzes from him, demeco, or dunta while the DL is coming at them too. This leaves Greenwood (if he's here) as a backup to Adibi, Bentley and Diles (rehabbing) backing up SLB and MLB.
3rd- C/OG Antoine Caldwell- Alabama or Max Unger- Oregon
A highly rated Center/Guard would be an excellent addition to the team. The enterior of our OL sure could use some help.
