Default HoH's Post Combine - Pre FA Mock Draft (The Perfect Draft)

Trade With The NY Jets for their 4th and 29th pick and the 2nd Round Pick also.. They trade up to get Bush, Saints take Leinart, Titans Take Young..

Draft Summary:
With the First-1st Rounder, Super Mario fills in a dying need at a Dominant Pass Rusher.. 295lb with the strength of a UHaul Truck and the Speed of an OLB. With the other first Pope falls to us, Our QB gets a 6'7 Target with Tremedous Strength and Great Hands, could be licking his chops to have this guy as an option. McNeil provides a ferious Run Blocker that absolutely plows people and a VERY good Pass Blocker. We Move back to the defensive side, Robinson has been a monster for us, and who better to get than somebody is basically a replica of him.. Richard Marshall is fast, great in man coverage and has delivered sledgehammer hits D-Rob and R-Marsh, i love what they could do for our defense. Greg Eslinger is a 4 Year Starter for one of the BEST lines in College, he made all the calls in a zone blocking offense in which the Texans will be running now. McIntosh played ILB and OLB in the Miami Career, with people like Ray Lewis, Dan Morgan, D.J Williams and Johnathan Vilma coming from The U's LB corp.. it definetly couldnt hurt to give this guy a shot, his verstality in the LB position will be valuable. Watkins is an unbelieveable specimen at the S position 6'4 and 210lbs and runs a 4.4. His LONG arms has helped him knock down a lotta passes that should have been out of his reach. Matua is quick and strong, his is an imposing force that will shock people if he grasp the zone blocking concept. Riggs Jr. is 230 lbs but when it comes to bringing him down you'd think he was 270lbs. He WILL run you over. with that size and he runs a 4.52. He's faster, Bigger and Stronger than Domanick Davis and could provide great depth and who knows, could even take DD's spot 1 day. QB/WR Brad Smith, well as far as he falls in this draft and with the 6th round pick it couldnt hurt to pick this guy at the VERY VERY least he'll be a 3rd reciever and 3rd QB, But A. Randle El came out a QB, converted to WR and he's doing great over in Pitt, they took a chance on him and now they have play in which you have to be honestly cause Rothelisberger is not the only 1 that can throw the ball and why not add that dimension to our team?.. finally Cody Douglas from Tenn well This guy has a NASTY NASTY meanstreak.. he doesnt "block" he MAULS YOU! The Texan's add a Pass Rusher, Pass Recieving TE, Good O-Linemen, and Complement to D-Rob, a Great Safety and a Versatile WR/QB guy.. that could be a night if used properly.

Not a bad mock at all, it would help our team out, but I have a few comments:

I don't think Leonard Pope will last to #29, I think he'll be the 2nd TE off the board, and I don't see him making it past Cincinnati, Chicago, and Carolina. I'm not real fond of Marcus McNeill, I'd prefer Daryn Colledge for our team and blocking scheme, but I still wouldn't take either at #33.

Richard Marshall wouldn't be a very good opton that high, CB is a need for us but we should be able to find better than Richard Marshall.

I don't think Rocky McIntosh will last that late either. He put up an impressive combine and I think he could very likely be gone by the mid-2nd.

Watkins on paper looks like a nice addition, but I haven't seen enough of him to know how useful he really would be, so I'll wait on that one until a later point in time.
