Re: Swatt's 2013 Mock
Sort of a redundant pick with Burton taking on "offensive weapon" status.

Cordarrelle Patterson WR Tennessee
This pick is long overdue, we finally get a #2 receiver to groom behind Dre.
Propose Trade- Our second round pick, and Ben Tate for a mid to early second
I'm all about it but I doubt it happens.
Matt Barkley QB USC
I'm not quiet on the cut Schaub bandwagon yet, but we probably need someone to groom behind him for year or two. He can make all the throws and has off the charts work ethic, and intangibles.
This is the one guy I would actually trade up to get. To me, he's the only rookie coming in with star power. He's very experienced and good at making accurate throws in the pocket or on the move. The only thing is he's definitely a 1st round pick.
Kyle Long OT Oregon
The right side of the o-line has be inadequate to say the least, Long is a project tackle with upside
Probably picked before the end of the 3rd. Good development RT though.
Round 3: (Mario Comp)
Tyrann Mathieu CB/S/KR/PR LSU
After going with a few high character guys, we can afford the risk. At worst he is a good return man and safety dept.
Nico Johnson ILB Alabama
Dobbins and James are free agents after this year and he's good value in the forth.
Good with it.
Marcus Lattimore RB USCAR
I traded away Tate in this mock so we need a new RB. Apparently his injury looked a lot worst then it actually was. If he can regain his form he's nothing short of a steal.
I proposed this earlier, I think it's a calculated risk on a guy with much talent.
Trey Burton FB Florida
You can never have to many solid players. He's basically a James Casey clone.
I actually think he could develop into a slot receiving threat, I've seen him in many games, he's very talented.
Denard Robinson OW (offensive weapon) Michigan
I'm not gonna lie, I only put him here due to my lack of research in the later rounds of the draft. But he is someone I would take based on game changing speed and explosiveness.
