Post combine mock
IMO, there are several WR2 picks but only 3 that could eventually replace AJ @ WR1: Patterson, Allen (leg issues) and Da'Rick Rogers. My guy has size, speed, skill set of a young AJ. Runs entire tree routes with good hands with physicality to take ball away from defense. He can go deep but offers a plus target to Schaub going over the middle and can work back to the ball as needed. Like Johnson he can take a lickin and keep on tickin with very aggressive run style. More fluid than "quick twitch" but has good speed to size ratio. Could he slip to our second? Why take a chance if he is what you want? Off field, three busts for MJ which he readily admitted to and states he passed 10 screens at Tennessee Tech, if not true, media would have been all over that. Clean for a season, admitted immaturity issues and good combine interviews. 22 YOA in June.
First: WR Da'Rick Rogers 6'2 1/2 " 217.7 lbs 4.44 combine (2nd try). 32 3/4 arms with 9 1/2 hands; 39.5 vert; top 5 3 cone.
2. NT Brandon Williams 6'2" 341 unbelievable hustle at this size who chases ball to sidelines like no other Nose over 310.
3a CB/S David Amerson 6'2" 194 (high school safety) combine 4.38 some concern about his make up speed like I had with KJ but not anymore after combine. Steal if still here. Phillips likes his players to gamble and take risks but good coaching will restore his confidence as it did Jackson's. His 5 INTs in 2012 only look paltry compared to 2013's 13 INTs. If he strikes out at corner, he will be an unbelievably good safety in our system.
3b OLB: Jamie Collins unless Kiko Alonzo avail
4. ILB A J Klein
5. CB Terry Hawthorne 4.44
6. TE Michael Williams huge blocker with soft hands.
7. OLB Quanterus Smith
I do expect one more comp minimum in 5th or 6th and would use that for Cierre Wood RB Notre Dame
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
