1. Andrew Luck QB, Stanford

2. Chase Minnifeild CB, Virgina - currently projected as a 1st-2nd round pick so this one is plausible

3. Dontari Poe DT, Memphis - Currently ranked #30, which would make him a 1st-2nd round pick

4. Sean Spence OLB, Miami - Currently projected as a 2nd-3rd round pick

4. Kenny Tate S, Maryland - currently projected as a 3rd round pick

5. AJ Jenkins WR, Illinois - currently projected as a 3rd-4th round pick

6. Antoine McClain OG, Clemson - currently projected as a 5th round pick

6. Malik Jackson DE, Tennesse - currently projected as a 4th round pick

7. Jeff Demps RB, Florida - currently projected as a 5th round pick

We would get phenomenal value if we were able to pick these guys in the rounds you have them, but HIGHLY unlikely.

I wouldn't say this is highly unlikely at all, their is always guys projected in the 3rd or 4th round that ends up not being drafted at all.

I wouldn't say it's unlikely for one or maybe 2 of the players to fall, but not for 7 players to fall 1-2 rounds. That's why I say it's highly unlikely.

None of these players are locked into any round at the moment besides Luck. There is still a combine that will happen and some more college games too. I'm sure the site you get your info from will look completely different by the time April rolls around.

i kno everybody wants to talk about the offense and our qb situation but last time i checked the defense is playing horribly especially the secondary if peyton comes back 4 yr window in which we can win another title and with the offensive pieces that are there i think were good... but on defense our corners specifically arent getting it done and its not that they dont know the defense its that there physically inferior to the new type of wide outs in the league... Alfonzo Dennard from nebraska, Janoris Jenkins, CB (N. Ala.), Cliff Harris and morris claiborne i think these guys all have the potential to be great dbs

I'd say there are more players locked into the first round than just Luck but that's a different discussion. I realize all this, that things will change by the end of the year. I realize some players will rise and some will fall etc. I was merely trying to point out that, as of current projections, the OPs mock was rather unrealistic. However if, by the time April rolls around, each of the players mentioned has dropped the 1/2 to 2 rounds from where they're projected now and we can draft them in the positions listed then by all means...assuming we'd still want to draft them if they fell like that because falling multiple rounds typically is not a good thing.

But hey, if we're going on the "no player is locked into a round" then here's my mock draft:

round 1: Morris Claiborn

round 2: Cordy Glenn

round 3: Michael Floyd

round 4: Manti Te'o

round 5: Quinton Coples

round 6: Brandon Thompson

round 7: Mark Barron

I assume you pick up Luck as an undrafted free agent?

The problem is, you are basically assuming all but one player ends up lower than they are currently projected.

While positions will change, it just doesn't make sense to predict which way the players will move, and it makes even less sense to assume they will all fall.

I was meaning out of the list of players in his draft, obviously there are other players that are locked in the first round.

What makes you think that the website he uses is even that accurate predicting where every player will be picked. I'm not saying every player will fall, but a guy falling one round from what any website says is a common accurance. None of us know what the actual scouts of teams think about most of the players in this draft.

I will throw my mock in here :); I will include 2 sixth round picks, which is all I am expecting as compensatory for CJ & Session.

1. Andrew Luck QB, Stanford

2. Chase Minnifeild CB, Virgina

3. Dwight Jones, WR, North Carolina/Joe Adams, WR, Arkansas (one of them should be there)

4. Casey Hayward, CB, Vanderbilt

5. Jaye Howard, DT, Florida

6. Antoine McClain OG, Clemson

6. Brandon Taylor, SS, LSU

6. Kevin Koger, TE, Michigan

7. Bryce Beall, RB, Houston (a 5'10", 215, 4.60 RB that can rush, catch and pass block since he played in a pass happy Houston offense with Case Keenum)

After trading back twice with miami and redskins the colts go:

6-8th overall- Claiborne/Kirkpatrick (depending on new DC's scheme)

2nd- Michael Brewster

2nd- Mark Barron

2nd- Kevin Zeitler

3rd- Kendall Wright

3rd- Sean Spence

4th- Devin Thomas

5th- Jeff Demps

6th- Kellen Moore

7th- Ryan Broyles

Free Agents:

Paul Solali- NT

Israel Idonije- De

With our first pick we get a true number 1 corner to go opposite of powers. Barron steps in and plays the SS like a 5th LB, similar to how Sanders played it. This allows Bethea to play deep middle where he is at his best. This hopefully fixes our secondary needs.

Brewster and Zeitler give us the 2 interior linemen we are missing to go along with the bookends from last year. If Saturday comes back then Brewster can fight for a guard position, which i believe he would win. Zeitler would be a day 1 starter and a staple at that position. This gives us a Castonzo, Zeitler, Brewster, Diem, Ijalana oline. Best since Glenn and company left.

Kendall Wright gives us a deep threat and depth in the receiving core, im assuming Reggie wont come back unless he signs a smaller contract so the core would look like garcon, wright, Collie(slot), with tamme at TE (clark is released for cap) if reggie does come back: reggie, garcon, collie (slot) with wright in rotation and to stretch the field. Broyles slides to the 7th due to torn acl mixed with already "to small" body, limited if any playing time rookie year, if he can bounce back would be one of the steals of the draft.

Spence fights for starting position plus gives depth. Thomas adds to rotation, hopefully impacts pass rush. (We resign Mathis as well)

Moore gives us another backup to learn the system. Low risk high reward player.

Solali completes our Dline with a true staple at NT, Idonije is versatile and solid pass rusher, solid player to add to rotation.

    • I’m old enough to remember the 2021 season. 
    • My top 15 would be: Based on eye test (except Graham and Unitas as I was too young to watch them live but I have seen film on them), stats, MVP's, over all win shares, longevity, talent, and clutchness, etc..   1. Tom Brady - eventhough I feel weary putting him here because there have been a couple of cheating scandals. 7 SB wins, 5 SB MVP's, 3 League MVP's, and his stats are among the best ever. His longevity is so impressive as well. He didn't cheat when the Bucs won it all in 2020, so there is that.   2. Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 3 SB MVP's, 2 League MVP's. He had 0 INT's in 4 SB games, that is unbelievable.    3. Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 1 SB MVP,  5 League MVP's - most ever by any NFL player in history. He holds the record for most Yards (5477) and TD's (55) in 1 season = 2013. He was 3-1 vs Brady in AFC Title Games. I would put him in my top 3 all day. He is Mr. 12 wins a year.   4. Johnny Unitas - 1 SB win (1970) as an older starter but 2 NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. He put up great stats for a QB that played in the 50's and 60's. He actually won a League MVP in the SB era (1967).   5. John Elway - Could do it all. Run, had a cannon for an arm. Once he got a running game in 1997 it wasn't fair. Won SB's in 1997 and 1998. Won League MVP in 1987. Stats wise not too shabby either = 50,000 yards passing and 300 TD's.   6. Aaron Rodgers - 1 SB win, 1 SB MVP, 4 League MVP's. He wins 12 or 13 games every year it seems in his sleep     7. Otto Graham - In his era, he dominated. Won several Championships. He belongs here at worse. I know how great he was but I just feel the other 6 QB's were better.   8. Drew Brees - Stats king, 1 SB win, he would be higher but no League MVP's.   9. Brett Favre - 1 SB win, he is the only NFL player to win 3 straight League MVP's in a row = 1995-1997. He put up huge numbers as well and was an iron man. He would be higher on this list but his total INT's has him here. He is still top 10 and fun to watch.   10. Dan Marino - the only QB I have in my top 10 that didn't win a SB/Championship. By eye test and talent alone he was top 10. He lost to Montana in his only SB appearance (1984), won the League MVP that season in 1984. He set records with TD passes and yards in 1984 that were video game numbers. He never had a defense or run game in his entire career.   11. Terry Bradshaw - He helped the Steelers to 4 SB wins, his stats weren't elite but he did win 1 League MVP, unlike lets say a Ben Roethlisberger who never won a League MVP. He had a stacked team but 4 is 4.   12. Steve Young - As a starter won 1 SB, had it not been for the Cowboys he probably wins 3. He won 2 League MVP's, Aikman never won an League MVP.   13. Roger Staubach - I think he was better than Aikman by the eye test who was also a Cowboys QB. He did win 2 SB's and went to 4 like Peyton as a starter. He was like Steve Young, he could run and scramble really well.   14. Troy Aikman - He helped the Cowboys win 3 SB's. Like Bradshaw on stacked teams but in big games his accuracy was spot on. IMO Emmitt Smith was the best player on his teams but without Troy they don't win 3 SB's either.   15. Patrick Mahomes - as a starter, has made 4 straight AFC Championships games, has won a SB and been too 2. He has won a League MVP, SB MVP, and has had a season where he threw for 5000 yards and 50 TD's = 2018. He is the best QB over the last 4 seasons easily and going into 2022 I have him #1. Even without Hill, they will still win the AFC West IMO.      - Omissions, people will say where in the hell is Sammy Baugh? Sammy is top 20 = great QB, here is the deal with Sammy. He was known as a top 20 football player of all-time because of his defense and punting ability along with his QB play, just not for his QB play. Was he a great QB, hell yes but not better than my top 15. Overall player he is arguably top 10 because of his defensive play and Punting ability's. 
    • Yup, after I posted, I looked it up. Looks like Coutee only had 2 weeks on the 53 last year, which he needs 6 min for an accrued season.    If TY isn't resigned, I think Coutee stands a decent chance of sticking on the 53. We're over stocked on bigs, not so much on Z/slot types. That is, unless they start running 6-3+ guys from Z... 
    • I think Coutee has one more year to accrue.
    • Coutee was a late waive (last cut day) by Houston that surprised a lot of folks, and we jumped on him quickly (I think it was around the time we knew TY would miss time). I don't mean necessarily that someone will grab him for a starter roll, but he'll get grabbed by someone (PS or 53). He's been in the league 4 seasons, but not sure he's met the accrued 4 year stipulation (weeks on 53). Strachan and Patmon both have a little film out there which will interest teams. Patmon has a bit of a rep for not being a my-ball guy, so that likely hurts him. Strachan is seen as raw with a high ceiling so teams are more likely to romanticize lol. All three would at least make it to a team, 53 or PS. But I think Strachan is the most likely claimed for a 53 spot.
