Is going to be my final mock draft before the draft tomorrow.  

 

Trade first round pick to SF for 2nd and 3rd.

 

Pick 34 (From SF) - D.J. Hayden CB University of Houston

 

There has been a lot of hype about this kid over the past couple weeks leading up to the draft.  Mayock even has him as his number 1 CB this year, but I didn't think it was a big deal until I saw the tape.  Has great speed and quick feet, uses speed to close in on the ball.  Fights for the ball in jump ball situations and is fluid while mirroring WR's.  Solid in both zone and man coverage and although a big undersized does not shy away from contact and will take ball carriers down.  Everyone should know the story about this kid, hes going to be a good player.  I know a lot of people have him going late in the 1st round, but I see him more of a 2-3 round pick.  Guess we'll see.

 

Pick 74 (From SF) - Jamie Collins OLB Southern Miss

 

This is a kid that I've really fallen in love with over the past couple weeks.  He has great explosiveness and speed that helps close in on the QB.  Has long arms that helps with separation and is one of the better coverage linebackers in this years draft and has the speed to lineup with quicker TE's and slot receivers.  Had an amazing combine 6'3'' 250lbs 4.64 40, 41.5 inch vert, 139.0 inch broad jump.  He is a bit lean and still needs to fill out his frame and doesn't have great moves in the pass rush, but nothing that he can't learn from Robert Mathis.

 

Pick 86 - Barrett Jones T/OG/C Alabama

 

Versatile offensive lineman that has played every position on the o-line for Alabama.  Shows good strength and has good technique and very smart.  Is not a great athlete  but has good fundamentals.  Will be able to help in both the run and passing game. 

 

Pick 121 - Chris Harper WR Kansas St.

 

Good sized WR at 6'1'' 230 has a thick muscular build makes it hard for defenders to bring him down.  Has good speed for his size, 4.55 40, and has solid hands.  Does lose focus and occasionally drops the ball and a bit stiff in his hips and a bit raw in his route running, but nothing that Reggie can't help him with.  I can see him being groomed by Reggie and later replacing him.

 

Pick 192 - Knile Davis RB Arkansas

 

Has some question marks about being able to stay healthy, but if he can he can be a game changing 3 down running back.  Has the size to be a 3 down back 5'11'' 227 lbs and has great straight line speed.  Is big and strong enough to break through tackles, but agile enough to make defenders miss.  Not afraid of contact and has solid hands to catch passes out of the back field.  Needs to use his strength to get up on defenders and help in pass protection, goes fro cut blocks rather than body-to-body.  Ran a 4.37 40 and benched 31 reps.

 

Pick 230 - Eric Herman OG Ohio

 

Adding depth into our interior as we're pretty thin there.  Has good size 6'4'' 320 and had 36 bench reps at the combine.  Can't be much worse than McGlynn.

 

Pick 254 - Jonathan Stewart ILB Texas A&M

 

Mr. Irrelevant is Jonathan Stewart!  Good sized ILB that adds depth in the linebacking corp and can immediately contribute on special teams.

Very good draft. If we could trade down and get Hayden and Collins, it would be amazing. We'd be completely set at corner, and Collins would provide instant quality depth at OLB. If Lattimore is there in the 4th I'd consider taking him over Harper, but I can't complain about the pick.

NFL Live with polian and mangini simulating a war room, they were on the eagles pick at 4 and the cardinals called and said they were looking to trade up and were offering the #7 overall and there 3rd rounder(69th) , polian turned it down though and took Milliner.

Just doesn't look like you would get a 2nd and a 3rd for pick 24

that was the dumbest fake war room thing i have ever seen. It was even worse than when they go on the miniature football field and reenact plays... its embarrassing to watch guys like polian and Jerry rice participate in things like that....

sorry for the rant

    • His breakout game came against the Eagles mid way through his rookie season.  Indy was a big underdog that day and killed the Eagles in Philly. 
    • For those that didn't see it, here's the exclusionary flow chart of the surgeries from 1958 - 2016       I count two studies (one with 95 cases, the other with 80, one of which Dr.Parekh was involved in) having a nearly identical average of a 72.5% return to sport rate-   "One previous study investigated RTS and postoperative performance for players who underwent Achilles tendon repair in the NFL. The prior study demonstrated an RTS of 72.5% in 80 NFL athletes. The RTS from this prior study is nearly identical to the results of the present study with an RTS of 72.4% in 95 NFL athletes." "Following Achilles tendon repair, less than 75% of players returned to the NFL. Postoperative career length was 1 season shorter than matched controls. No difference was observed in the number of games per season played com-pared to matched controls. Postoperative performance scores were significantly worse for RBs and LBs compared to preoperative, and LBs had significantly worse postoperative performance when compared to matched controls."   and the very small PARS mini open study at 78%.   I see a trend of some surgeons trying to move from open technique to a limited or mini-open technique (as opposed to a pure percutaneous repair).   Dr. Purekh:   “but the problem with a pure percutaneous solution is that you can’t see anything, so you can actually pierce the nerve.” The miniature-open technique requires only a 3 cm incision while the traditional approach of surgically treating Achilles tendon ruptures required an 8 cm to 12 cm incision. “One of the biggest issues with the traditional model was long-term immobilization, and there was about an 8% to 10% chance of an infection or wound healing problem,” he notes. “The benefit of doing the mini-open technique is that your incisions are much smaller, so your wound complication rate postoperatively is under 1% or 0.5%."   This minimally invasive miniature-open technique is heavily dependent on special tools (PARS Achilles Jig System by Anthrex, Inc.: Naples, FL; Achillon Achilles Tendon Suture System by Integra LifeSciences Corp.: Plainsboro, NJ), and can add in costs up to $800 to 1,000 per use.   Dr. Selene G. Parekh, of Duke University, has pioneered a minimally invasive mini-open technique that does not use specialized equipment, and has adapted the miniature-open technique to require only standard operating room tools, such as surgical clamps and forceps, etc. to be able to grab the Achilles tendon and pass suture.   “You don't have to worry about a special instrument lining up properly in order to grab the tendon, so the whole procedure now takes about 20 to 30 minutes whereas traditionally it took 45 minutes to an hour,” he says.   While mini-open repair is available at Duke (and elsewhere), only Dr. Parekh is performing Achilles repair via this new technique without the need of special instruments.  I'm interested to see what types of improved outcomes become apparent besides the time and cost savings up front.      
    • What did I say?  What did I say?  Didn't I say it was bad luck to change your number?  And it's not like your already behind the eight ball, being from Ohio State.  OMG.  *facepalm*
    • I really like the Vaughn's  kid think he will be a Hakeem knicks type player who can catch in traffic
