Default The Sky is Falling Mock

Round 1: Tajh Boyd, QB Clemson, 6-1 225 lbs



Rick Smith is going to get rid of Matt Schaub at the end of this season, and if you think otherwise you're probably one of the people chanting "Fire Rick Smith" out in the regular section of the board, and are probably unaware of all the things Smith has done to make this team better. I want Brett Hundley and if I'm given the choice between him and Tajh Boyd, I'm beginning to like Hundley more and more though he is far more raw than the other 1st round prospects. However, I think Hundley is gone before we pick, and Boyd will still be there when we do. I like Boyd because he looks like the leader and the QB we need under center. He's got accuracy, ball placement, and he seems tough, much tougher than MS will ever be.

Round 2: Kyle Fuller, CB Virginia Tech, 6-0 190 lbs



You bet CB is a concern with this team. Aside from the starting punch of Kareem Jackson and Jonathan Joseph, there is little behind them in this team and Kyle Fuller would go a long way towrds addressing that.

Round 3: Shayne Skov, ILB Stanford, 6-2 245


Continuing the tradition of badass names on our LB squad, Skov will round out the lack of depth behind Cushing. Joe Mays' play has made this less of a need but I'm not entirely sure Mays is not just a one year plug. I think the injury from last year brings him down to our pick, but he's been looking good so far.

If the Seattle game isn't proof that we need another leader in our ILB corps, and that if Cushing goes out for any period of time we're screwed, I don't know what is.

This is also where I lament about not drafting Kiko Alonso. I was damn high on him last year and look how he's been doing so far.


Will continue.

Round 4: Arthur Lynch, TE Georgia, 6-5 258 lbs.


The injury to Owen Daniels has me worried. I don't think OD is going to be long on this team for many seasons. Though Garrett Graham looks like a capable successor and Ryan Griffin looked good in the preseason, a solid TE like Lynch will greatly help our rookie QB as a safety blanket.

Round 5: Alvin Dupree, OLB Kentucky, 6-4 252 lbs.


Adding a pass rusher later in the draft is never a bad idea. We have little behind Reed and Mercilus. While Mercilus has looked good so far, Reed has been mediocre in terms of production and I think Montgomery is a bust at the position and Trevardo is a one trick pony.

Round 6: Dri Archer, WR/RB Kent State 5-8 178 lbs


Speedy receiver, could possibly return kicks. If we're going to add a guy who can deliver the goods at QB, we can also add a guy who can go deep downfield to get those goods.

Round 7: Ben Malena, RB, Texas A&M, 5-8 195 lbs.

A pick to fill in the 3rd RB spot after Cierre Wood moves up and Ben Tate leaves. Had to put an Aggie in here somewhere, and Malena is an impressive RB with fluid movement and the ability to jump and jive past linebackers. Has excellent burst but not top end speed. If A&M ran the ball with him alone more often, he'd have a higher draft stock, but since they use him in tandem with Tra Carson the power back and Trey Williams the stud sophomore, he'll be a sleeper.

I like your first 4 rounds and just reviewed Lynch again about one hour ago. No oline selections? IMO our thin line is high priority. In fact, if I knew I could get McCarron in third (rated #91) I would probably go OG first, OT second and AJ in third. I think ILB/OLB Lamin Barrow LSU could be had in 4th; basically an OLB but his coach was to move to ILB until DJ Welter stepped up or I could go Jackson of W. Kentucky. I have ND's Bennett in 6th as a man cover corner.

If McCarron was my choice of QB, I would definitely go O-line first. I think if we don't go QB in the first, we will have a choice between McCarron, Murray, possibly Manziel, Mettenberger, Morris, Fales and Carr in the second for sure and possibly third rounds. However, I have an odd feeling that with the return of Brennan Williams and David Quessenberry, we may not see high round draft picks on O-line. Maybe depth.

I like Lamin Barrow, and if he's there in the 4th I'd give him a good look there. I also like Andrew Jackson out of WKU, but he'll be gone by the third imo.

You think B Williams has a solid chance to return healthy in 2014?

I am not aware of the extent of his injury (I know it's a knee microfracture), but given a full year to recuperate, possibly. If his health does not improve, though... yes, I would advocate an early round o-line selection. It'd have to be my boy Cedric Ogbuehi, though
