Default Htown's Mock

Hey, guys. After witnessing the total systems failure that was the Boston Massacre of MNF, this is my reaction mock. Be gentle, I've never done one before . Just kidding, comments thoughts counterarguments and reactions absolutely welcomed.

1st Round: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU, 6-5 270 Senior


Sorry, guys. I know everyone wants a WR in the first round, but... after watching our pass rush all season long, I'm convinced we need to upgrade much of our D-line. I'm going to assume that Barwin is out of a job and that Mercilus is starting (I like his development, I think he'll be good for us next season). I think Brooks Reed keeps his job. But aside from Watt, our D-Line absolutely isn't getting it done. With Antonio Smith aging and his contract up in 2014... we need help with the rush. And Ansah is the man. I'm not sure that he'd wouldn't be used as an OLB, actually, and push Brooks to the inside, but whether as a DE or OLB, we need the pass rush help.

2nd Round: Cordarelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee, 6-3 205 Junior


Now we address the offense. It is way too sluggish and once people figure out how to shut down Andre we are done for the day. If Andre gets shut down in 1 on 1 teams stack the box against the run and we are treated to Foster carries for 1, 2 yards. We need a big, physical WR to help open up our game and this guy is an athlete. He could potentially become the heir to Andre, and if Lestar Jean continues his growth and Martin fleshes out, we may have a solid 1-2-3 knockout punch at the WR position.

3rd Round: Gabe Jackson, OG, Mississippi State, 6-4 320 Junior


I think Wade Smith's play is declining. We need help at guard, and Jackson is a good 3rd round pick up who I can see developing into a steady cog in our offensive line, playing next to Duane Brown. If not replacing Wade Smith, he'll have to switch sides and play RG, but I feel that that is better than the mess of a rotation we have going on. Gardener, the practice squad guy, was thrown around in Foxborough. I'm not entirely sold on Derek Newton at tackle on the right side but I feel as if his play had improved throughout the season and that guard becomes a nice hole to fill.

I will post later rounds in a bit. Exams coming up xD
