Re: 4 Round Mock
I don't think we would trade our 1 and 2 for their two 1s....
Maybe our 15th for their 21st and a second or third rounder.
I like Barwin, but he is complete projection. If I were going to role the dice on a project, it would not be with the first rounder. i would want a starter or situational starter at the least (3rd down pass rusher, CB playing the nickel, RB getting 12 carries a game, etc). If I were to make the type of gamble you are projecting, it would be with the Georgia Tech kid. He still had 17.5 TFLs and 10 sacks on the season. He needs consistency. You know, some of the same things people were saying about Mario when he came out (takes plays off, sacks came against lower competition, etc).
I think Ziggy Hood will be a good player in this league for ten years. He seems destined for INDY.
I love the safeties, would love McBath to drop to the 4th.
As far as RBs, I like Wells in a trade down in the 1st, Jennings in the 2nd or 3rd, and Brown in the 4th. I like Ringer, but after the 4th.
I hope Caldwell finds his way on our team in the 4th. I think he could easily go in the 3rd.
Thanks for the post.
