Nobody

Nobody's Hastily Thrown Together 2015 Mock (2.0?)

Recommended Posts

I know I'll get a lot of "he won't be there" comments. In the end I don't think I have anyone falling a ridiculous amount more than expected, and if they aren't there there are other options. I guess you could call this a "good fortune" mock.

1.29 Landon Collins- S Alabama

In my mind the only threats to taking Collins are Pittsburgh and Philly. It wouldn't surprise me if Collins was here, and I would expect him to be a Colt in that case. I'm not his biggest fan but he is decent in coverage and compliments Adams well, as he is great in run support. He's not Landry 2.0, as Landry wasn't even good against the run. Collins is better against the pass than Chancellor was coming out of Va Tech, so I would like this pick.

2.61 Henry Anderson- 34DE Stanford

Some would say a reach, but I think he's more than worth a late 2nd rounder. I'd trade down if possible but I don't do trades in mocks usually.

3.93 Jay Ajayi- RB Boise State

If he really does drop due to the knee issues (I'm skeptical, it hasn't been an issue since he injured it, and he was not asked to attend the Combine Medical Re-check) then he won't fall much further than this, IMO. He'd be a hell of a get here.

4.128 Paul Dawson- ILB TCU

Another guy who where he ends up is anyone's guess. Smallwood went undrafted for similar reasons last year, whereas Borland went in the second and thrived (until he up and left the game) If he is available here I think he'd be a good value pick.

5.165 Gerod Holliman- S Louisville

The kid has issues, that much is clear. But it looks to me like they are fixable. Yes, I am pairing a run support guy with questionable cover skills and a coverage guy with questionable(okay, bad) run support skills here. They are 21 and 20 years old, respectively, and I think they could develop into a great combination.

6.204 Terry Williams- NT ECU

I'd be willing to take the guy much higher than this, depending on the buzz from other GMs. He's a bowling ball out there, and my draft crush.

6.206 Trent Brown- OT Florida

Massive (6'8 355) blocker who needs to develop, but could end up being a serviceable RT. As with most guys his size, pass pro needs work.

7.244 Frank Clark- DE/OLB Michigan

A really underrated prospect IMO. He's got off the field issues but it's a 7th rounder, cut him if need be. He's an athletic freak with great pass rush productivity and is still good against the run. Give me that in the 7th all day. No idea where he's going, it wouldn't surprise me to see him go 3 rounders earlier, nor would it surprise me to see him go undrafted. But I'm leaning towards the latter.

7.255 Travis Raciti- 34DE SJSU

I'll level with you here, I don't know much about this guy, he's the only prospect on here I haven't watched. But you have to make a pick. He had a big sophomore year with 9 sacks, but dropped off a bit the next two years.

I reallllly like your bottom end. (Raciti, Clark, Williams, Brown)

 

But c'mon man. Holliman in the 5th? Dawson in the 4th? No way, your probably underestimating them both by 2 rounds.

 

This would be great if it were to happen, but I'm 99.9% sure it's not so it's hard to really get into it.

This is borderline brilliant....and is more realistic to me than most of the "realistic mocks" around here.  I say that not because it will happen, but because this is the kind of thing that does happen in a real draft.  2nd rounders going in the 3rd and 4th.  3rd and 4th rounders going in the second.  Holliman could easily go in the 5th or later given his issues.  It may violate a purists mock draft principles, but nothing you did violates what will actually happen on draft day if you change the names (you could change them to Nobody if you prefer)

Holliman in the 5th is not a stretch at all.  Dawson in the 4th may be a little late, but I could easily see scenarios where he falls to that pick.

Love the Collins and Ajayi pick. I would personally replace Holliman with James Sample.

Overall a solid mock and I would be reasonably satisfied if this happened.

Good job!

I expect Holliman to be there in the 5th actually.

I heavily considered taking Sample too. Collins (ITB safety) and Sample (all around) would be a poor man's Seahawks safeties. I think Sample goes higher than expected however and Holliman lower.

Aw shucks, I'm blushing. I completely understand what you're saying. Sure, not everyone goes where they belong but it's not like my whole mock is just 1st and 2nd round talents. Inevitably, the real draft will have perceived reaches and players who drop.

-I could talk myself into liking the Collins pick if it happens, but I'm not comfortable with his coverage abilities.

 

-Anderson would be a pretty decent pick.

 

-If Ajayi does indeed fall to our 3rd pick, I'd snatch him up in a heartbeat.

 

-I don't think Dawson even makes it to our 2nd pick honestly.

 

-Holliman's obvious deficiencies scare me but I'd be willing to take the risk in the 5th.

 

 

not familiar with the rest... started following the draft late this year

Frank Clark is rumored to be a guy the Seahawks are targeting in round 3.

Dayum. Well that would obviously screw up my mock haha

He's really good. Oh well, substitute in Orakpo's brother or some other project athletic pass rusher.

I could see Holliman falling to the 5th....     not likely, but possible.

 

But I don't see him falling all the way to the bottom of the the 5th where the Colts pick.

 

29 picks in a round is a long, LONG way to fall.

I like the two safeties pick, for depth and for the future due to Adams' age.  

 

I think getting a FS and an SS would be wise.  Holloman and Tartt might be something to consider.  

 

Your NT pick is interesting.
