Rd. 1: Taylor Lewan OT Michigan
Rd. 2: A.J. McCarron OB Alabama: I would take McCarron with the first rounder if needed as I think he will be the best Qb in this draft. I know Iím in the minority there though. Just expect to see his name in all my mocks.
Rd. 3: Jackson Jeffcoat DE/OLB Texas: I have seen him play a few times and I think he is athletic enough for the transition. I would like to know what any die hard longhorn fans think about that.
Rd. 4: Shayne Skov ILB Stanford
Rd. 5: Carrington Byndom CB Texas
Rd. 6 Michael Dyer RB Louisville
Rd 7. Chris Whaley DT Texas
I like your first 4 but see Byndom more as a safety and would hesitate for that. Most expected him to step up after 2012 but not happening. Also, Skov is more of an in the box, shut the run with minimal skills in coverage. I am not necessarily against that as I have mocked Andrew Jackson in past but would prefer an ILB that can do both; see my mock with Smallwood in second. Skov really has cranked it up this season & hopefully has learned to stay away from "substances". Considered extremely intelligent kid.
As of today, McCarron can be had at our third unless you think he will rise a complete round? I would not argue that but asking your thoughts.
