Well if you saw my no trade mock, you can just trash it. So here's a redo, plus my own little trade. We trade the 36th and 49th pick to the eagles to move up to 32. I'm fine rolling with Mack and Turbin and we can always move Anderson to DT to replace hankins

 

1. Quenton Nelson G Notre Dame

 

I believe Chubb will go 2 and Barkley 4 leaving us to build the interior which Imo is the weakest part of our team.

 

1.Connor Williams T Texas 

 

Probably not gonna be there, but it is a possibility and if he is still available we'd need to jump at the opportunity.

 

2.Billy Price C/G Ohio State

 

AC Price Kelly Nelson Williams. A lot of rookies, but that is my idea of fixing the line.

 

3.Rasheem Green DE USC

Played DT and got 16.5 sacks in two years, but will have to move to DE due to his size.

 

4. Dante Pettis WR Washington

 

My favorite prospect in the draft. Shifty, very good hands, good size and speed, but is currently hurt.

 

5.D.J Reed CB Kansas State

 

Reed is undersized, but the kid can play. Great coverage ability, can tackle, and will give 100 percent effort.

 

6.Airius Moore ILB NC State

 

Moore gets overlooked due to playing on the same defense as Chubb and because he's somewhat undersized, but he's a physical, athletic, speedy LB that can cover. Something we desperately need.

 

7.Jamar Summers S Connecticut

 

Summers can play coverage safety and man coverage allowing us to move him around while also having an 8 int season a few years ago, however he has degressed in recent years.

Basically I've traded down in each of my mocks, but for this one I'm staying put so let's go.

 

1. Saquan Barkley RB Penn State

 

OK hear me out, both the browns and giants signed rbs in free agency. Does that mean they won't draft Barkley? No, but it is now less likely. I honestly think the browns will take a QB first overall, have tyrod play the first year and groom him for the future and the giants will take Chubb. Nelson is an option, but I just have a hard time taking a G in the top 3. I also think I one way to protect luck is to have someone else help carry the load.

 

2.Billy Price C/G Ohio State

 

Not sure if Price has played G, but it's not uncommon to have linemen play different positions and with price getting hurt, he will fall most likely out of the first round.  If we do move him to guard, our line can potentially look like this AC,Price,Kelly,Jensen,Fluker

 

3.Rasheem Green DE USC

Played DT and got 16.5 sacks in two years, but will have to move to DE due to his size.

 

4. Dante Pettis WR Washington

 

My favorite prospect in the draft. Shifty, very good hands, good size and speed, but is currently hurt.

 

5.D.J Reed CB Kansas State

 

Reed is undersized, but the kid can play. Great coverage ability, can tackle, and will give 100 percent effort.

 

6.Airius Moore ILB NC State

7.Jamar Summers S Connecticut

I like it!

 

Green is a solid DE prospect that just needs to get stronger and hone his pass rush arsenal.

 

Pettis is one of my favorites too! He'd be the perfect possession WR for us and I think could bring everything people thought Jarvis Landry would. The best part about him as well is that he's not relegated to only the slot. He can play outside as well.

 

Overall, we get our stud RB, a solid G/C, a developmental DE that may be able to rotate in mid-season, a WR2/WR3, then CB/ILB/S depth (at the very least). We'd be lacking a game changing edge rusher, but the edge rusher group looks to be REALLY strong in the 2019 draft. Going Barkley this year and grabbing one of the top edge rushers next year could be a way to get a generational talent and potentially an even better DE prospect than Chubb.

I don’t like the idea of moving a DT to DE. DE is a much more complicated position and there are a lot of different pass rush techniques he would have to master. I feel like he would become more of a project player which we don’t need right now. 

 

He's played all over the line. Not just DT

I’ve got Billy Price and Airius Moore on my current mock.  Solid picks.  i absolutely think Connor Williams will be there at 30, but I wouldn’t select him before round three.  Maybe Tyrell Crosby...

Isn’t he a projected 1st or 2nd rounder?

He'll be gone before the second let alone the third

I don’t like him.  He didn’t live up to his hype this year.  But unlike Harold Landry or Jaire Alexander, you can’t point to an injury to explain why.  Williams was disappointing long before he got injured this year.  Anyway, I’m reading that his good combine put him in the 2nd round, but trading up imto the 1st would be folly...

First, that too steep of a price to move up to pick #32. You might take a look at the trade value chart to get a better feel for the price to move up.

 

I do love the Rasheem Green pick. He seems to be flying under the radar in this draft but offers high upside at DE

    • Surprised no one had signed Hooker yet. He's still pretty good and he's young
    • I get what you are saying.  But if Ballard truly believes this I don't think he will be pressured into having to go for an edge rusher early.  I think quite a few people could be disappointed by his draft if that is what they are expecting.   I am not saying whether it is right or wrong; I am just trying to see things the way Ballard does.
    • Broncos are open to trade pick No. 40.  I won't be awake come draft time, so if anybody is interested, we have to get the deal done till 6 pm eastern time. 
    • The Colts giving up a first for Craig Erickson was pretty disastrous with the benefit of hindsight. He lost the job to Jim Harbaugh and fell as low as 3rd string.   At least with the Jeff George trade we got a return getting a couple of first and a third, That future first we got from Atlanta netted us Marvin Harrison.  With Erickson, we got a starter for a game and a half and the pick we gave up still had Ray Lewis on the draft board.     Trent Richardson was a bad trade, but it doesn't come close in my estimation.  There just weren't a ton of prospects around the 26th pick in the 2014 draft that, even looking back on their careers, would have been better off.  Maybe Davante Adams or Demarcus Lawrence?  But we'd have probably been up in arms about it if we drafted either of at 26 instead of trading down.  That class was pretty top heavy looking back.   Again, hindsight is 20/20 and all that and we obviously wouldn't have made those trades if we had a crystal ball, but to think that in 96 we could've had Marvin Harrison AND Ray Lewis?  
    • I would hope not. Especially, if your drafting folks in the 1st and 2nd Rd. I expect most 1st Rd players to contribute as rookies. 2nd Rd picks, should be starting or heavily contributing by year two IMO. You don’t draft guys in the 1st or 2nd rounds, that take 3-4 years to develop. If, they take that long, call it what it is, a bad pick.
