My New Mock
1. Dwayne Allen TE 6'4'' 255 4.76-40
Think before you quote any of the Kubia-nomicon...A legit playmaker opposite AJ on pass attempts, will impact in the red zone, a better blocker than Dreesen (who's a free agent anyway) on multiple TE sets and run plays. Great hands, solid routes. The consensus best TE in the draft instead of the 4th or 5th best WR. The only reason he's not a top 10 pick is he's not a physical freak like Vernon Davis. Schematic versatility, another offensive playmaker to contend with, it even comes off as a splash, a sexy pick. It's the right pick.
2. Dwight Jones 6'4'' 225 4.45-40
Now I know he might not drop THIS far but he's clearly in the 2nd tier of a very, very deep WR class. There are plenty of other mid-level guys who are big and fast. Marvin McNutt, Nick Toon, Juron Criner, Tommy Streeter, Jeff Fuller...ONE of them is going to drop and this is the round to go after them.
3. Ryan Miller OG/OT 6'8'' 300 5.3-40
The interior upgrade who may just be enough of a pass blocker to play T. Noted for run blocking and high intensity effort, strength and agility for big man. Lots of comparisons to Eric Winston here, including the team and the round. Definitely fits ZBS. There's also the Colorado thing...hell if he ever played TE anywhere I would consider it divine prophecy to be selected with this pick.
4. Charles Brown CB 5'10'' 205 4.40-40
One of the players suspended at North Carolina, significantly hurting his draft stock. Also some inconsistency issues but athletically he's a definite plus, a good tackler and can make plays on the ball. A steal in the 4th round.
5. Marquis Maze WR/KR 5'8'' 185 4.49-40
Between this pick and hoping Lestar Jean and the 2nd round WR develop positively, I'm trying to rid the Texans of Jacoby Jones. Kind of a flyer for a 5th, could also use more OL and DL depth, maybe even a consecutive DB selection but I'm going for homeruns!
6. Chad Diehl FB 6'2'' 265 4.72-40
Oh look at that. I actually can't pass up getting this guy, despite limited ball skills. Vickers makes Vonta Leach look like a probowler (get it?) and Leach wasn't exactly praised as versatile. Besides, we've got that guy already, that's James Casey. We don't need him to run either, that's what we have Foster and Tate for. I believe this also serves as an upgrade for the interior run blocking.
7. Darrell Scott RB 6'1'' 240 4.48-40
Since this is one of the last picks of the whole shindig I go for a guy with great measurables who might be a project...much in the vain of Dorin Dickerson and Cheta Ogzougwu. May be a cheaper alternative to an aging Derrick Ward.
