The choice came down to Randle or Stephen Hill. Despite Hill's higher potential ceiling I decided to go with Randle. I think he has a higher floor and the ability to be a bigger contributor at the beginning of his career.

Randle has good size and speed. He catches the ball with great hands instead of letting it come into his body. He runs great routes down the field. He may need some work on his underneath routes but I am confident that he has the skills and potential of a first round prospect.
Solid pick. I think you nailed the position, we'll have to see about the player? I would have taken Hill.

Both were highly rated recruits and both contributed early in their careers at LSU. Similar size, with Bowe being a bit heavier and Randle being taller, and similar measureables.

Bowe had a better statistical career although he benefited from better QB play and a more efficient passing attack while he was at LSU, but Randle was one of the top WR's in the SEC the past 2 years despite the QB problems.
Ok, I think I should give him the benefit of the doubt. I forgot about the quarterback problems that LSU has had with Jefferson and Co.

Doesn't mean I'm right and you're wrong. Perry is a beast and would be BPA whereas Randle is hitting a need. Just depends on your drafting philosophy. I prefer hitting needs and Randle does that. I see Perry as a luxury since Barwin and Reed both played well last year.

My drafting philosophy is to always keep the status quo and to then improve your team. Case in point, if we lose Myers or Brisiel then I would be in favor of an G/C in the 1st to keep the status quo and then a WR in the 2nd to improve the team.

As I acknowledged when I made the pick, I really wanted to take Perry. He was the best player left.

But I am much more confident in Barwin/Reed than I am in our situation at WR. Despite Perry's immense talent, I simply couldn't pass on Randle.

As it should be

Especially when you can draft a Curry/Cam Johnson/Irvin in Rd 2-3.

What about our depth at OLB. We've got nothing behind Barwin and Reed. Yes, we do need to start looking for WRs, but BPA would be Perry.

I'd go with Perry, but that's just me.

I will definitely be targeting OLB depth in the next few rounds.

With the 29th pick the the mock draft the Baltimore Ravens select.....

Peter Konz - C, Wisconsin



Konz is not the most talented guy still left on my board, but he definitely fits the biggest need for Baltimore. The Ravens have a huge need on the interior line at LG and C. Ben Grubbs is a free agent and will be leaving for a big contract elsewhere, which leaves a huge hole at LG. At Center, Matt Birk and Andre Gurode are both free agents although I expect the Ravens to retain Gurode.

Gurode played decent at C last year, but really struggled when pressed into duty as an OG. With this in mind I aimed to fix the hole at OG instead of C and selected, what I believe to be, the most talented interior O-Lineman left on the board to plug that hole. What put me over the top on the selection is Konz's versatility to play either G or C.

I see Konz sliding in at the LG position as a rookie and competing for the starting job next year with 2nd year player Justin Boren. I do see him as the Center of the future though and eventually I expect Konz to move to Center as Gurode is phased out of the offense.

With the 30th pick in the draft the San Fran Gold Heads selct:





Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

He'll be trading in one gold helmet for another.

Adding another weapon to this offense will help pay dividends down the road. Hopefully he can be the deep threat that they wanted Teddy Ginn to be. He will likely not be ready for a starting role from day 1, but he should be able to provide more exploxsive plays to this offense throughout the course of the season. In the future, he and Crabtree could form a dynamic duo.
