Thanks, I just thought I would throw out a curveball since everyone else seems deadset on WR, OLB or DT in the 1st. I really do think we need to draft a QB at some point in this draft, just not sure where at the moment. Probably the 3rd or 4th would be best.

2. Thompson, I love this pick, he's perfect for the Texans at NT thus the reason I put him in my last mock in the 2nd round, but getting Thompson late in the 2nd will require some luck.
3. Schwartz, I really like the player but I think he goes in the late 2nd round so this pick will also require some luck.
4a. Robinson, I like this pick, decent/good quality in the 4th for depth.
4b. Egnew, I like this pick, I'd hope for Ladarius Green down here but if not available I think Egnew is a good 2nd option if we take a TE.
5. Fuller, I don't think I'd touch this guy in the draft he has just imploded from what he was last year and his potential. He had a bad Combine, Pro Day, Senior Bowl, and senior season. He had some injuries but he also dropped the ball alot and wasn't even the best receiver on his team. This is a very deep WR class and we can do better.
6. Bullock, this could be the best pick in your mock as he should lock down the K position for the next 10-15 yrs..
7. Page, I don't know anything about this guy but it's a 7th round pick that most likely won't make the team anyway so why not.
I'd sure like to see a quality ILB somewhere in your mock.
1. Weeden I think would have the most impact on the team in 2012, if we want to look for 2013 and beyond, then guys like Cousins, Foles, etc would be the pick. I am laying out the assumptions there to turn the QB spot into a need, as I don't think Yates is going to be good enough to win now.
4b. I like Green as a pass catcher, but I don't like him as a blocker. In Kubiak's offense, TEs have to be able to block. Also, the guy had a lot of injuries in college, and I don't want another Anthony Hill. Per ESPN:
"Reportedly has tendonitis in his knees and medical report could negatively affect his draft status. In 2011, missed Kent State due to shoulder injury suffered in opener vs. Oklahoma State and missed MTSU with shoulder injury. In 2010, missed two game (North Texas and Oklahoma St.) with ankle injury. In 2009, suffered a neck injury vs. FAU and missed the next three games (returned for final two that season). "
5. Fuller's a late pick, I wouldn't take him before this because there are much better prospects in the 2-4th. However, he fits the measurables of Kubiak's interest, and he was great his Junior year. He had injury issues that really screwed him over this year, and I think that had a lot to do with his drop off. It's a flyer, but it's only a 5th, so I'm happy to get him here.
7. Check out Page when you get a chance, he's an interesting player and a great returnman.
Thanks for the feedback.
