Default Aussie Mock 5.0

Ey guys
Final mock of the year for me.
I have a few different ones lurking on my computer but i choose this one as its a little different.

Hopefully you enjoy and feel free to ask questions.


1 Shea McClellin OLB, Boise State
I don't think its our number 1 need, but we must go BPA and i think it also fits one of our needs.
We are fairly thin behind barwin and reed. Barwin could get injured again and reed is only in his 2nd year. We need help in the rotation and for competition.

2 Brian Quick WR, Appalachian State
Pretty obvious why need a WR.
Quick gives us a Big body (6.4 220) receiver who is fast and has a great leap. Has a nice spin move in open player. Is a willing blocker but could get a little better. Has great hands and is a hard worker. Only thing he needs to improve on is his route running (like all rookies).

3 Ladarius Green TE, Louisiana-Lafayette
Big Bodied speedster!
Needs to work on his blocking (mainly due to his slender body), could afford to add 15pounds without losing speed. Has a great leap and good hands. 4-year starter who by all reports has great work-ethic and very coachable.

4a David Molk C, Michigan
Back up to Meyers and could if needed slip into guard.
Has a real nasty streak about him. Really hard worker and very competitive, just missed out on setting the combine record for benchpress. Has great intangibles very coachable, high football IQ and vocal leader.
Only negative is his lack of size but I think in our scheme he should do fine.

4b Nick-Jean Baptiste NT, Baylor
335 pounds but can still penetrate.
Will play behind Cody in rotation allowing Mitchell to move to DE.
Dominated East-West Game.
Needs to work on his technique as his been getting by mostly do to sheer determination and hard work on the line.

5 Nate Potter OT, Boise State
6.5ft 303pounds…..and….34 5/8 arm length.
Has a great body and could afford to add probably another 10 or so pounds without taking away from his athletic ability.
Down side is his lack of power and and strength but as I said he could put in some extra time in the weight room for the year so by 2013 when butler is more then likely released his ready to start.

6 Randy Bullock K, Texas A&M
Top rated kicker on the board, his a Texan boy as well so gotta love that.

7 Matt Conrath DE, Virginia Tech
Played at 270 pounds but weighed in at 290 at his pro day and scouts were really happy with this.
6.7ft with 33” arms this guy his pretty darn big.
Good motor, effort and hustle. Flashes a mean streak. Outstanding worker. Highly competitive. Is terrific at blocking FGs, and knocks down a lot of passes too.
Does this guy sound familiar or what.
Negatives are, does not anchor well, needs to work on technique and relies to much on upper body strength.


thanks for reading!
