Wells only had 15 catches during his time at Ohio State. I have to wonder why. Ohio State throws the ball, so why was Wells ignored? The Eagles throw the ball to the back a lot. Does the offence change from that when Wells becomes the main back? I can't see that while Reid is the coach.
McCoy had a lot of catches at Pitt. He fits better in what they do now. The question on him is does he really want to play football. I ask this from things I have read on other boards up here about Pitt football. Some are saying that he really didn't want to leave Pitt this year, but was pushed into it by his family. Both will be used a lot behind Westbrook.
In the mock we are doing here, I took McCoy over Wells because of the pass receptions. I wanted Pettygrew, but he never made it to me. Nicks was the other guy I wanted. I really like Andre Brown from N.C.State around the 3rd round if I could have goten the TE in the first.
Yours is a very good mock.
Ohio St ran the ball 67% of the time on offense this year and 63% of the time last year so I wouldn't read much into it. They throw the ball less than most teams do.
If he has problems catching the ball in drills then I would worry about putting him in that offense though.
