Rd.2 Kyle Long 6'7 312 Lbs 5.04 OG/OT Ore. Long has unreal movement skills for a man of his size, a mean streak and great blood lines. He's a perfect ZBS OT. An upgraded Winston.
Rd.3 Brandon Williams 6'2 328 Lbs, 5.09 NT Missouri Southern, Williams is a squatty powerfully built NT who can really move for a big man. He takes on double teams and still makes plays. Only risk is that Williams comes from a small school. After the show he puts on at the Combine whe will probably go in the top half of the 2nd rd.
Rd.3 Margus Hunt 6'7 280 Lbs 4.74 DE/OLB SMU, Hunt is new to the game but he is one of the best athletes in this draft. After a couple of yrs of learning under Wade/Watt he has the ability to become another Watt. They have the same demeanor. In the meantime Hunt will be another valuable ST's contributor. His vertical makes him a great kick blocker and a part of the DL Swatt Patrol.
Rd.4 Kiko Alonso 6'3 242 Lbs 4.74 ILB/OLB Ore. Alonso is a playmaker (See other guys mocks) he's got great hands and awlays seems to be in the right place. He will be another valuable addition to the ST's
Rd.5 Terry Hawthorne 6'0 190 Lbs CB Illinois. Hawthorne drops a couple of rds because of a neck injury, Hawthorne is the pick simply because he's a better cover CB than Harris/Carmicheal. I think McCain is leaving after this yr and Hawthorne provides depth and ST's value.
Rd.5 Nick Kasa 6'5 260 Lbs TE Colorado. Kasa is a former DE who still has that attitude when it comes to blocking. He's suprisingly fast and has good hands. After seeing the offense against the Pats carrying 3 TE's is a neccessity and Kasa has really good athletic ability for a man his size.
Rd.6 Will Pericak 6'4 285 Lbs 4.77 DE Colorada. Pericak is a very active guy with good spped, he's very tenacious and always around the ball. He didn't show up on all of the high prospect lists due to the putrid Colorado defense, the fact that he's a diabetic and he was arrested for peeing in a trash can at a nightclub. I found him when I was checking Kasa.
Rd.7 Rex Burkhead 5'11 210 Lbs 4.42 RB Nebraska. Burkhead is a very quick, instinctive 1 cut runner. He runs very hard and has the knack of finding small holes. He has good hands and is good at picking up blitzes. The only reasons he falls this far is 1. A slight knee injury this yr. 2. The NFL's reluctance to draft/play white RB's.
Looking forward to the feedback I receive, Let the critiques begin
Patterson has a lot of talent, but I think that there are different holes we need to fill. AJ is still going strong, I dont think we need to spend a first yet. I would not dislike the pick though, since I do think he will be a good one.
Sign me up for Long, and I think this is about right in terms of value. He has first round measurables, but his play is not there yet. Taking him in the first would be a reach.
I have been pushing this Wiliams for months now. I think 3rd is a little bit early, but I now do think he will go earlier than the 5th round (where I had him ranked a month ago). Compromise and say 4th round?
Hunt is a boss. Keep him at DE though, as I think he would be more comfortable there as opposed to OLB. Dude is raw, but has a lot of potential. Plus, he will definitely be a help on STs.
I like Kiko, nice pick.
Another Big 10 DB that I dont know about, what is this? I will try to find some games of his.
I like Kasa a lot. Kind of the reverse Watt, as he was a DE turned TE. He brings something new to the Texans' TE corps- blocking ability, while at the same time not being useless in the pass game.
Pericak does not impress me though. Since I advocate keeping Hunt at DE, what about a OLB here?
Burkhead should be a good, safe pro. He wont be as good as Tate, but he makes Tate expendable (since I think Kubes cant stand Tate, and will likely encourage Smith to trade him).
I really enjoy this mock. There are a couple day 1 starters here, and a couple more who could start in 2014.
