Hey all,

I just wanted to let everyone know I really appreciate commentary on my picks. I'm relatively new to evaluating players (only seriously started for the mock draft last year, and casually a year before that) and want to get better, so hearing from everyone is really appreciated.

The Colts certainly could use some interior OL help. Jackson will be a rock that stops all of the pressure up the middle on Luck as well as improving the running game. Surely your not through strengthing the Colts OL? Who is currently their starting center? LOL

I like that pick. Like the player and it fills a need.

Hate that he's going to the Colts, though.

I see him projected as a guard because of his size. This is one of those guys where the various grades on him vary pretty wildly.

If the Texans draft Clowney 1-1 and Garappolo 2-1 I hope they trade into the botton of the 2nd and pick Thomas. Thomas is one of my favorite OL in this draft. Strong/long arms/good feet at 6'3 he's a little short for a OT but can play that position. He will be a great OG.

Top 40 IMHO Great pick.

The New England Patriots select...

Weston Richburg - C - Colorado State - MWC

I have Richburg as my top rated Center and the Pats have a huge need there. Ryan Wendell graded out as one of the worst Centers in the league last year and is now gone via Free Agency. Richburg offers a huge upgrade as a pass blocker and has the strength to take on NT's in the run game (something Wendell was awful at). This is a big upgrade on an interior line that really needs it.

He's extremely raw. Didn't start playing football until his junior year of high school. Redshirted his freshman year at Fresno State so he's only played 4 seasons of football. Lots of room for potential growth, but also some risk in taking an unfinished product who's never played in a real offense.

He has great physical gifts though and, if developed properly, he could explode.

Best center in the draft.

Definitely an upgrade over Wendell. I think this guy is a rare exception for whichever team picks him. Day 1 starting Center.

I see him projected as an OG too, and that's where I have him as well, but he did measure extremely long arms at the combine and has plus athleticism for the position. Carolina has needs all over the O-Line so that guy is likely starting somewhere even if it's not LT.

I feel the same way. And I implore the same. Doing so helped me to realize that although Kony Ealy has sick upside, he might not be a fit for the Texans under Romeo C (even though Walter Football has him listed as a 3-4 DE: http://walterfootball.com/draft2014DE3-4.php).

There is a fine line between commentary and critique and attacking, so take everything in this area with a grain of salt (from me anyway) and feel free to throw it back if you think I do something dumb.

I don't like the Saints drafting ANOTHER RB. They have way too many needs on the defensive side of the ball getting adjusted to Rob Ryan's D and they already have several RBs on the squad. Ingram, Thomas (just extended), Robinson, etc.

Hey bro, this isn't another of your fantasy scenario threads. Texans didn't draft Clowney 1-1 and take loser Jimmy 2-1. You get that talk out of here.

Saints have a ton of needs and RB isn't necessarily one of them. That said, hard for me to hate the pick because Sankey is my #1 rated RB in the draft and he's an instant starter for New Orleans. Looks like a pure BPA selection.

Denver Broncos have a glaring hole in the middle of their linebacking core.

Shayne Skov - LB - Stanford

Could be a little high for Skov, but I think he fills a drastic need for the Broncos, and is still getting back into form. Instincts, instincts, instincts. I didnt think he would make it back to me in the 3rd.
