Texan4Ever's Mock Draft
With the NFL schedule out and with FAs almost over here is my latest mock draft...
Round 1 ~ Clay Matthews - OLB - USC
* Matthews is a hard worker with an excellent football IQ and aggressive attitude. No doubt he is one of the hardest working athletes in the NFL Draft and going from a walk-on to backup LB in one of the best LB corps this past season, he is a sure 1st round pick. Not much starting expierence but has plently of gas in the tank and will make an immediate impact.
Round 2 ~ Rashad Johnson - S - Alabama
* As much as I like our current S, it doesn't hurt to add another one to our defensive secondary. Excells in the backfield and is a hard worker like Matthews and is a good leader and will no doubt play with passion.
Round 3 ~ Lawrence Sidbury, Jr. - DE - Richmond
* Signing Antonio Smith doesn't solve our pass-rush problems. Smith to me is another Mario Williams in the sense that he is suited to take on the OT but he doesn't produce in terms of sacks. Sidbury can produce double digit sacks because he is a bit shorter but has good speed and can get into the backfield.
Round 4 ~ Jonathan Luigs - C - Arkansas
* As much as I respect Myers, Luigs is better suited to replace him at C and he comes from a ZBS scheme and has the size and bulk to excell.
Round 4 ~ Keenan Lewis - CB - Oregon State
*He might be gone by this time but if he is still on the board he should be taken. He is quick and has a decent 40 time. Will compete for playing time and adds another DB to our depth.
Round 5 ~ Herb Donaldson - RB - Western Illinois
* A productive back from a small school that has the bulk and size needed in order to pound the rock up the middle and take on LBs. He will probably split carries with Slaton and be our feature goal line RB.
Round 6 ~ Greg Isander - OG - West Virginia
* Big, strong, and naturally aggressive guard who hails from a ZBS scheme offense. Should compete for a starting role and maybe start and take over the starting role.
Round 7 ~ Vance Walker - DT - Georgia Tech
Another DT to add to our depth.
