Rd 1 Michael Floyd WR
I doubt he makes to us but as a long time ND fan I really like this guy's game. He's a terrific football player. Great hands, good speed, willing blocker in the running game, and has played in a pro style offense. Not a great season this year due to very spotty QB play, but this guy would be terrific as a WR2 with AJ
Rd 2 Vinny Curry OLB
I thought this guy would be a late first or early second rounders but with a slower than expected 40 time, he may indeed fall to us in rd 2. He would make a terrific addition to our OLB rotation. Remember 40 time isn't everything, Suggs ran a very pedestrian 40 but has obviously been very productive.
Rd 3 Mike Martin NT
I just like this guy, tough, athletic, strong and physical. He would make a great addition to our NT rotation and allow Mitchell to move out to DE bolstering our depth their as well.
Rd 4 Janzen Jackson DB
Ultra athletic DB to add to this mix
Philip Blake or David Molk OC
young center to groom.
Devon Wylie Wr
Quick slot receiver and return man
Chase Ford TE
Come on, it's the Texas, we've got to pick at least 1 TE.
I'm concerned if Floyd has corrected the drinking issue. One of the ESPN guys@ combine stated Floyd had "handled his business on and off field". I don't see a DB and would go WR in 4th ideally as at least 2 guys there I want. Blake in 5th violates your parameters imo as he is a 3rd minimum (listed #5 G/C per Mayock).
Enjoyed the mock
I want to be able to recognize the difference between a "want" and a "need" and then I want to be satisfied with getting a need
