1. WR: Da'Rick Rogers 6'2 1/2" 217.7 4.44 (combine 2nd attempt) 39" vert. arms 32 3/4 hands 9 1/2 top 5 in cones. OK, forget the weed for a minute and name one player still available that could give us what AJ does (Patterson, Allen and Hopkins gone on my board)? None. Rogers can go deep, slant, outside, inside and is superstrong. Gives Schaub the perfect weapon. Now to the Maryjuwanna: he admitted to the dope and has allegedly passed many screens at Tech. Has been compared to Julio Jones. I think Texan will go for him if he has tested clean & nothing came out during combine.
2. NT: Brandon Williams this one concerns me because my spidy antennae say Phillips will not draft NT until much later (or sign a cheap vet) to back Mitchell.
3 a. S: TJ McDonald replace Reed in 2 years. An in the box shut down the run guy who covers better than Pollard.
3b Slot: Stedman Bailey I know many will argue but Rogers replaces Walter, Posey should miss most of season, Jean need to be outstanding or will be cut by game one and Martin, well he better hope he has job as returner. We did carry extra WR when Holiday was a return man. Bailey is perfect slot but has played all and catches everything thrown near him. The OTC cold charge in Jan will not effect him. Long arms & 34.5 vert.
4. OLB: Chase Thomas
5. ILB: A J Klein ranked #170
6a TE Michael Williams
6b. FB Zach Line tremendous stats that might allow Tate to move on.
7b RB Cierre Wood even if I have to PS.
I would rather see us go with a top NT in the first and then go WR in the second. Hopefully Hopkins falls there. In the 3rd I would replace Bailey with Stills (OK)and in the 5th I would replace Klien with Williams ILB Florida St. But that is nit picking and having said that, this is the best mock draft I have seen PERIOD this offseason.
