Obviously this is now a pretty big need with the loss of Winston. Played LT in college and is being projected by many as an OG at the next level, but I think he's fully capable of playing RT in our system.

Brown is definitely a sleeper prospect although he was a 3 year starter and a two time All Conference selection. More of a developmental player than my original target, Mitchell Schwartz, but I think he's definitely a guy the staff wouldn't mind developing.
WR, NT, OT.
Sure looks like you're drafting base on needs.

I like it. Brown & Brown. Pretty solid. Maybe better value taking Brown in 3rd over Schwartz in 2nd?

I was going to take Brown at #96 for the Giants. I thought he would slip through the cracks. I had him projected as a LG for the G-men.

The Green Bay Packers with the 92nd and their 3rd selection in the 2012 TT Draft select

Chandler Jones DE from Syracuse

Many prognosticators had Chandler pegged as a top 40 pick so the Green Bay Packer Front Office is shocked to still see him there. They fully believe he has the build to put on more weight and eventually take over the 5 spot. Along with OLB Andre Branch taken in the 1st round the Packers believe there pash rush woes are over.

Given how famous his family is with his brother Arthur Jones as DL with the Baltimore Ravens and his other brother Jon Jones the Light-Heavyweight UFC Champion he fits perfectly in what the Packers envision in their new and young defense.

Attachment 449

Vinny Curry OLB from Marshall

After a 2 sack performance and a QB hurry that caused an interception in the Senior Bowl, the Packer front office is SHOCKED that he is still on the board and along with Andre Branch who was picked in the first round the Packer pash rush should be much improved this year. We had him pegged as a possible 1st round and at worst an early 2nd round pick. These 2 OLB picks should capably play across from Clay Matthews and give him a needed rest at times.
He was picked 47th overall.

Nice pick. I am amazed at how many players have dropped, while at the same time noting that there have been (by my board/opinion) relatively few picks that I would call "reaches".

This is a deep draft.

Absolutely. I hope to stretch that into the 4th round for the Dolphins in this mock. There is a player that I have had my eye on for a round and a half, who I would have taken in the 3rd had WR not suddenly become a need.

With the 93rd pick of the draft the Baltimore Ravens select...

Derek Wolfe, DE - Cincinnati



I really like Wolfe as a prospect, especially when it comes to his fit in a 3-4 defense. I'll say it right now, he really reminds me of J.J. Watt. Not as athletic or as talented, but the same kind of player. He's a big penetrator, who is great at getting into the backfield and rushing the passer. Wolfe was a 3-year starter at Cincinnati and was named the 2011 Big East Defensive player of the Year after he finished the season with 19.5 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. He has a high motor and is one of those "never quit" guys that every team covets.

DE isn't a huge need for Baltimore because they have talent there with Haloti Ngata, Pernell McPhee, and Arthur Jones. However, depth is an issue with starter Cory Redding leaving in Free Agency. Ngata is a monster and has one starting spot locked down, but the other is up for grabs after Redding's departure. McPhee was Redding's primary backup at LE last year and played well, excelling at rushing the passer. Jones was Ngata's backup at the DE/DT spot and will likely continue that role.

I envision McPhee winning the starting LE job, but I think Wolfe will contribute as a rookie as his primary backup while Jones continues to backup Ngata. In the 4-3 alignment, I think Wolfe slides inside to DT on passing downs while Ngata slides down to NT to give the Ravens a front-four pass rush of McPhee, Wolfe, Ngata, and Terrell Suggs. With Baltimore's new hybrid 3-4/4-3 defense the front four is even more important to the pass rush now with less blitzing to be coming from the LB's behind them. I also think it's important for Baltimore to keep getting younger and more athletic up front.


Ravens Draft:
1 - Peter Konz, C - Wisconsin
2 - Ronnell Lewis, OLB - Oklahoma
3 - Derek Wolfe, DE - Cincinnati

Go figure, Ravens addrress defense. thought OG would be the pick to replace Grubbs, maybe wolverine is plugged in to replacing him via free agent Evan Mathis? Wolfe to wolverine makes sense also with Redding leaving, nice pick

Thank you sir.

Ravens re-signed Matt Birk so I see Konz being able to compete with Justin Boren and Jah Reid for the LG spot. Think Konz takes over at Center in 2013 when Birk likely retires. I'll go OG then

With the 94th pick in the Texans Talk Mock Draft the 49'ers select:



Isiah Pead

Seems like a lot of people are down on Pead around here for some reason, but I think he's going to be a good back in the NFL. I think this is a good place to take him. The 49'ers could use some talent on the offensive side of the ball and Pead not only brings that, but he also adds value to the special teams. With Gore and Pead I think the 49'ers will have a formidable one-two punch.

Picks so far:

1) Stephen Hill, WR
2) Brandon Boykin, CB
3) Isiah Pead, RB

Default Re: 2012 Texans Talk Mock Draft

New England selects - Bruce Irvin, OLB West Virginia 6-3 245



Natural stand up rush linebacker, instinctual with probably quickest first step in 2012 NFL Draft. Patriots covet players who excel in space which is measured @ combine in drill sessions, primarily 3-cone drill were Bruce had the second fastest time ever for a DE. His 20 yard shuttle was the fastest ever along with solid numbers lifting, 23, vertical 33 1/2, BJ 10-3 40-yd Dash: 4.50 (1st among DLs, unofficially a 4.43 on 2nd run)'

All that said do his numbers (combine) support his other numbers (game stats)? Well in his two years @ West Virginia only Ryan Kerrigan (drafted 16th last year by the skins) had more sacks in two years with 23.5 compared to Bruce Irvin"s 22 sacks. His frame could support another 5-10 lbs creating a monster 250 lb OLB with burst & bubble, long arms 33 1/2" to rip past blockers & change of direction ability to deflect, tip, break otherwise disrupt any QB's timing & rhythm.

The combination of Perry, who could kick inside to DE in a 3-4 or down with hand in dirt 4-3 along with DT Reyes disrupting & penetrating inside lanes will create pathways for a speed edge rusher in the mold of a Bruce Irvin. I've been checking this mock expecting to make another pick but this selection just came the Patriots way both as value, BPA & need selection. CB position was addressed with Jayron Hosley & Patriots added safety help in free agency with Steve Gregory along with Anthony Gonzalez, WR formerly of the Colts so Bellibeer is hitting on all needs in free agency enhancing ability to select BPA. Patriots also just added Raiders OLB/DE Trevor Scott which will take pressure off a rookie like Irwin so he can excel on special teams, situation pass rushing reps gaining valuable mentoring from proven NFL veteran leadership.
