Scott's Mock Draft

Recommended Posts

This is my first and last attempt at a Mock based off of free agency, perceived team needs and trades that have taken place.

 

If for some reason Brissett is traded, I reserve the right to add that pick (or pick) in as well.

 

1 - Christian Wilkins - DT - Clemson

2 - Jaylen Ferguson - DE - LA Tech

2 - Chauncey Gardner-Johnson - S - Florida

3 - Justin Layne - CB - Michigan State

4 - L.J. Collier - DE/DT - TCU

4 - Bobby Evans - OT - Oklahoma

5 - Blake Cashman - LB - Minnesota

6 - Stanley Morgan - WR - Nebraska

7 - Ryquell Armstead - RB - Temple

 

This may not be accurate but it addresses more pass rush up the middle and off the edge. Plus a rotational defensive lineman who can line up on the end in short yardage and UT in passing situations.

 

A versatile Safety that can play Geathers role in a high 2 and then drop down in nickel and dime situations. A lenghty corner to throw into the mix with Wilson, Desir and Collins on the outside.

 

A depth piece for the linebacking corps that could add to the special teams mix too.

 

A talented LT that needs a year of refining technique and a pro strength and conditioning program to potentially take over for Castonzo.

 

A reliable Z receiver that can be used in the Reggie Wayne mold to move the chains and use his route running skills for bigger gains and TD's when everyones keyed in on T.Y. and Ebron.

 

And the running back is a true power back AND has the added ability to play fullback as well, if needed.

 

These additions seem to fill in the gaps from the last two drafts and adds significantly to the core of the team!

 

Go ahead and critique it, agree with it or offer different players in different rounds that fill out the roster, and why you think it would be better! :)

I think you have three DTs here. Not really a fan of Ferguson or Collier (especially as edge players)...but 4th round isn't bad for a DE/DT type. 

 

I would rather pass on Ferguson and make that first 2nd round pick a legit WR to pair with Morgan late.

I like it, actually a lot  

 

I do think that we will probably grab a WR sometime early

 

At the Justin Layne pick (3rd) I would take Isabella. 

 

I think at the end of round 4 is a good place for Collier, after watching game tape, I dont see him going earlier

Mom not reading anything that says Cokluer will last to Day 3.

 

He appears to be a solid Day 2 kid,  and from what I read, more likely R2 than R3.    That’s what I’ve been reading...

Parris Campbell from Ohio State or somone of that ilk?

Ferguson isnt a DT

 

He is a strong kid that has some good speed but not as flexible as you would like

(Thats why he isnt going in round one)

 

He has very good hand strength and with some coaching I DO think that he can be an excellent Pass rush

 

Not a 20 sack guy, but 10-12 is possible, which is great for a 2nd round pick

 

Wilkins will (MAY) be long gone by our pick, I fear

Do I hear a TILLARY?

I really like Parris Campbell...dynamic playmaker. 

 

But I also like Deebo, AJ Brown and Butler. Butler is a bit different than those two though. Could be a legit WR1, but is a bit raw comparatively speaking. 

 

I think Deebo/AJ Brown and Morgan could be a very versatile pairing...as both can run routes, play slot and move outside. 

 

It's hard to choose. Something about this class just makes me want two of them. Ideally, one that can play outside and one that can play slot.

I would take AJ Brown or Paris Campbell at Pick 34.  I think Justin Layne goes in the 2nd.  We might be able to take him at Pick 59 and draft a Safety like Amani Hooker at Pick 89.

He's not a DT right now. I just think that is where he would have to play to be successful in this scheme...like a half dozen other guys.

 

It's just a personal preference...but I don't like him as an edge player. Not a great athlete and not very flexible.

Gardner-Johnson is the guy I want to add to the back end. I am not sure we get him at the end of the 2nd. I’m taking him with the Jets pick. I think he could go at the end of the first.  We shall see.

It could happen Ballard trades out of the first. I could see him dropping down if the opportunity is there. I would in a second get another 2nd plus a 3rd  There’s a lot of value in this years day 2 guys

I really like where you added to the roster. We seem to be seeing the same things. I agree no WR early but the LB and RB rooms need competition at some point. I also think we look at OT and a TE with the FA’s we have coming up. in those groups. The DL will get a lot of attention. 

 

I love Gardner-Johnson selection. He is one of my favorite guys in this draft. I think if he gets out of R1. We gotta take him with the Jets pick.  I can’t see him lasting to the later part of the round. 

 

I don’t think we take a corner that early.  Ballard has talked about not needing to use early picks there. We resigned Desir. Moore had a breakout year Q stepped it up then add Collins in the mix. I feel like that’s a day 3 move unless a CB is clearly BPA. 

 

I’m big on adding DL but I like Tillery’s ability to get after the QB  lot. Joe Jackson is the guy I like on the Edge. If he goes as late as many forecast I think he could be the steal of the draft. 

 

The wild card on the DL is Simmons. Do we take a guy many considered a top 10 pick knowing he won’t be ready week 1 and realistically could miss most of his rookie season? Ballard talks big picture and the long haul. When would he be comfortable making that move?

 

We could go in many directions when it comes to WR. I struggled with the idea of taking two or going early for a top dog. I think you got it right we add a guy in the middle rounds 

 

Again we all have our guys and at WR mine is Mecole Hardman UGA. I love this kids toughness and the explosiveness he’d bring to the field. The biggest thing for me is his ability as a return man. I’ve been calling for a legit threat returning kicks for what seems like forever. Hardman is that threat. He draws comparisons to Lockett and T Hill. I get the feeling that Ballard has an eye on McLuire. 

 

The only position group I thought we would add to that you missed was TE. Doyle and Ebron are both going to be free agents and this class is loaded at TE. That makes me think we look that way 

 

I think you hit the roster where it needs to be hit and where I expect Ballard to hit it as well. I don’t dislike any of the guys you picked but there are a few guys I’d rather have.

    • this wasn't addressed to me, but Milwaukee goes to St Louis again second weekend in September. I would have thought they could finish this game then. I think maybe Rob Manfred just wanted a shorter game. Who knows.
    • IR. PUP. Starts Wk 1.    That's covered it. 
    • Multiple times I have said the length of the deal would be the issue...like probably in four different posts in this thread. But I think there are people who would even be against paying a RB (like Zeke) that much money for 1-2 years...or wouldn't even give up a late pick for him.    I brought up Funchess because signing Zeke would be akin to signing a Funchess each offseason for a few years. From a financial standpoint...that's not unreasonable. The picks are a different discussion...but Zeke is also on a completely different level...and there is going to be an acquisition cost to getting a player like that.    The bit about Mack was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. The rest of my comment isn't meant to be an attack or even a generalization...it's just an observation about what I have seen in many fans the past year (the Mack situation actually predated a lot of this).   There seems to be a theme...that when a talented non-Colts player vet is mentioned as a possibility to acquire (who would have a cost attached)...there are many that are either dismissive or against it...to the point that late round picks are too much to give up. I think that happens more often than people ignoring the acquisition cost and saying "gimme, gimme." (To be fair...I think saying people "routinely" ignore the acquisition cost is as much of an unfair representation or generalization as what I said...just on the opposite spectrum).   I respect your opinion...and we actually agree on many things (including aspects of roster construction)...I just think I must be in the minority when it comes to taking 'big swings' around here.
    • So here we are again, bunches of cap money, hoping our draft picks are as good as last year, but sweating our QB issue.     How many draft picks are we gonna horde?   How much cap space are we gonna bank?   I realize this deal with Zeke might be just a rumor and forum fodder, but if we have a chance to bring him in, I say yes.  As I, and many other members have said many times, we have a QB that can win a super bowl, but so far we have wasted the opportunity because we lack that 1 player that completes the puzzle.     Andrew has suffered more pain playing on our team then any other Colt's player that I can recall,  I say again, it's time to loosen the purse strings and sign some proven talent to give him a fighting chance.
    • I don't look for him to do much at DT. He played really limited snaps on the interior, really only when they game was far out of hand. Much like here in Indy, there were much better guys on that interior at Ohio State. Tyquan didn't get many "meaningful" snaps inside. Even now he's going to get limited snaps inside because Autry, Hunt, and Ward as just better interior players. I still think he would be a good, cheap replacement, for Sheard, if they got him back down in the 260's. He's good against the run and may get a handful of sacks a year against average RT's. I still scratch my head on why they insist on doing what they are doing with him now.     Yea that's not the story. Him and J Bosa were the starting DE's until they left. Hubbard eventually took over for Bosa when he left and Chase was still sitting behind Tyquan, Nick, and Sam. Chase will be a stud though and I have no doubts he'll be a top-10 pick next year barring injury. 6-5 265 with stupid athleticism, and is equally as good against the run as he is rushing the passer.   Maybe they were thinking Tyquan could turn into a Michael Bennett-type, who can bounce inside and outside on the fly, but I just don't see him being that kind of guy. He wasn't overly athletic at 260'ish, so he's definitely going be hindered with another 10-15-20lbs.
