Default BADBOY's 2013 Mock

Earliest ever but several have asked for my thoughts/opinions.
A. Schaub will leave regardless of 2012 season & Yates will start '13. Keenum will be #2. No QB on my board as of today.
B. D.Brown gets $ from Ryans,& Demeco & re-signs.
C. R. Butler gets $ from JJ and Briesel to re-sign.
D. Barwin leaves after great season. We draft OLB (again).
E. Shawn Cody is not re-signed.
F. Posey is or is not successful, we still draft a replacement for WR1 to train.

1. WR Da'Rick Rogers Tennesse (junior) 6'3" 215 He is noted to have "issues" but facts are the 2010 disorderly conduct & resisting arrest after a cop was knocked out were dismissed. He had a run in with strength coach & threatened him & was banned from off season activities for two weeks. Never suspended. Coach McKeefery was in his first year with Tenn & is a former Army performance coordinator Special Forces so may be a tad gung ho. Also note that Tenn Vols hired 7 new assistants. I think Rogers will do fine but expect him to enter draft after this season. He might be better than any WR in 2012 draft.

See this link on his 40 speed: http://www.eagleseyeblog.com/2012-ar...at-counts.html

Back in 2009, as expected, several prospects stood out. One of these young men, wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers, ran a blistering 4.34 40-yard dash at a mind boggling 6'2, 197-lbs. *Note this is a hand held device.

2. FS Robert Lester Alabama 6' 210 4.51 I had him as a late first 2012 after a 8INTs 2010. He "dropped off" 2011: 2 INTs but was close on others. He plays excellent (continued)

center field with some ball hawking skills.

3a LG/OT Alvin Bailey Arkansas 6'5" 319
3b OLB Devin Taylor South Carolina 6'7" 248 4.69

4. RB Christine Michaels Texas A&M 5'11" 215 4.48 played in only 8 games prior to injury 149/899 yds (6.0) 8 TDs receiving: 13/174 & 2010 good stats

5a DT/DE Baker Steinkuhler (Dad was 8 year Oiler vet Dean) Nebraska (Crick's teammate) 6'6" 290 4.97
5b (Briesel) ILB Andrew Jackson Western Kentucky 6'1" 262 4.72 109 T, 17 TFL, 3.5 sacks, 1 INT, 1 FF A physical hitter.

6. NT Mister Cobble Kentucky 6' 330 known as a "bowling ball". I became aware of him last season and is reportedly very quick despite his size. Probably a PS guy if Mitchell and Fangupo do well. I'd not be opposed to Mitchell replacing A. Smith eventually.

1. Rogers, I like the player and position chosen, would definitely add quality talent to the WR corp.. I'm thinking he's the new #2 WR and Walter is gone after the 2012 season. Posey is the new #3 in the slot.
2. Lester, very good player that would add some quality depth but I just don't forsee the need at FS yet. Are we losing Manning or Quin?
3. Bailey, I don't know anything about the player but I'm guessing you want him to replace Wade Smith, great size for the position. Maybe.
3b. Taylor, it would really suck to lose Barwin but if he has another great year he'll be very expensive in FA. I can understand a depth pick here. Getting a 3rd round comp. pick for Mario will be key next year as I think we'll have alot of holes to fill next year in the draft.
4. Michaels, good size, speed, and productivity as a possible replacement for Tate a year early. Hopefully we trade Tate and get something of value for him.
5. Steinkuhler, is he a depth pick when either Crick or Jameson take Antonio Smith's spot on the D-line?
5b. Jackson, I don't know anything about the player yet but don't really forsee the need for depth at ILB yet.
6. Cobble, PS emergency NT behind Mitchell and Fangupo, I can see that. I like Mitchell at NT especially with his added bulk. I just don't think Mitchell is quick enough for DE duties to replace Smith.

Nice job, definitely adds some talent and depth. I'm working on a terribly early 2013 mock as well, I'll post in a few days, still working on positions.

2. Lester, very good player that would add some quality depth but I just don't forsee the need at FS yet. Are we losing Manning or Quin? Strengthening the position for now & eliminating backups. Manning may be gone 2013.
3. Bailey, I don't know anything about the player but I'm guessing you want him to replace Wade Smith, great size for the position. Maybe. Smith gone after 2012, someone better replace him
3b. Taylor, it would really suck to lose Barwin but if he has another great year he'll be very expensive in FA. I can understand a depth pick here. Getting a 3rd round comp. pick for Mario will be key next year as I think we'll have alot of holes to fill next year in the draft.
4. Michaels, good size, speed, and productivity as a possible replacement for Tate a year early. Hopefully we trade Tate and get something of value for him. not interested in trading Tate who leaves after 2013.
5. Steinkuhler, is he a depth pick when either Crick or Jameson take Antonio Smith's spot on the D-line? Folks focusing on Crick versus Jamison but Steinkuhler may be better than both
5b. Jackson, I don't know anything about the player yet but don't really forsee the need for depth at ILB yet. Brady James has 1 year deal so draft his replacement or at least Sharpton's
6. Cobble, PS emergency NT behind Mitchell and Fangupo, I can see that. I like Mitchell at NT especially with his added bulk. I just don't think Mitchell is quick enough for DE duties to replace Smith.

Nice job, definitely adds some talent and depth. I'm working on a terribly early 2013 mock as well, I'll post in a few days, still working on positions.
Respnse in bold & look forward to your mock.

Hell of a mock for being this early!

Rodgers- I love this pick. I forget which thread it was in, but I pointed this guy out as an early target for the Texans. Big, strong, fast, he has it all. He drops due to a lack of hype and off the field issues.

Lester- Will he be here? If so, I like it. Depth is important, and really behind Manning we dont have a guy who can start in case of emergency.

Bailey- Depth on the OL is always good. I dont know a lot about the player, but I like the position.

Taylor- Again, I like going the position. OLB will likely be taken in just about every draft at some point, and Taylor is a good one. It would suck to lose Barwin, but it is a possibility.

Michaels- I cant get on board with this one. I dont think a RB will be taken, as I doubt Tate goes anywhere, and I really like Meggett for the 3rd RB role. Still shocked he went UDFA. Now, even if we needed to grabe a RB, there are other guys I like around this area- Burkhead from Nebraska in particular.

Steinkuhler- Yet again, depth. I like it, though I dont know much about the player.

Jackson- I really like going ILB, but I would have addressed it earlier. James and Dobbins are stop gaps, and I just dont think Sharpton is a starting caliber player. However, around this slot Larrimore from UCLA has me intrigued.

Cobble- Sign me up

To get Rodgers you better be willing to do a ATL/Cleve trade. Rodgers is going in the top 5 after he tests out at the combine.

Give me one of the top QB's if we're going to make that type of trade.

Franchise QB is a must if Schaub cant stay healthy.

Thanks 65. Yeah I remember responding to your post on Rogers in that thread as your comment were right on target. My concern is he will rise out of our reach but there are about 6 WRs that should go first round (as of now) & hopefully we can get him.

Lester is ranked #62 by CBS NFLdraftscout so is in position to be there. I do predict he will have a good season and may not be there round 2.

Appreciate yopur comments!

Martin's worth has not been proven yet but he seems to be doing well. I still want a WR to groom for our eventual WR1. Unfortunately, I still see Posey as a late season to 2013 season at best. His lack of a season playing last year really hurt. If he was all that anyway.

Well, so far you're 1 outta 6 on who stays and who goes. But it's early. As for getting a WR in the 1st, I'm not sure they will go that route, especially with someone who's been in trouble with the law . At least I hope not. If they do it means a lot went wrong this coming season with AJ, Jean, K-Mart, and Posey. I'm pulling for them to go after a big and fast TE with good hands and good blocking skills in the 1st (hopefully at #32 ). We are getting kinda thin at TE now and if OD goes down we could be in for trouble. That would leave only GG and Thor left, and we need Thor as FB also.

I do agree we need a NT and I hope we get one early. Maybe in round 2. But I'm also thinking they may go after an ILB and possibly another OLB if Barwin does leave.

Please see my new 203 mocj posted last night. Much has changed since I posted this thread as we all knew it would. Posey is still a concern and today's Houton Chronicle (August 23rd) addresses Posey's rust. I am cool with AJ/Walter and Martin. If Jean can develop, even better. However I did a Virginia Tech WR, TE and a Nose in re-modeled mock. Our opinions of course will change as the season and team progresses.
