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.

    • Another NFL Preseason Game Night, Colts fans!    A battle of  0-2  teams  seeking their first win in the 2019 NFL preseason play in Circle City, as the Chicago Bears come south on Interstate 65,  to play our Indianapolis Colts in both teams preseason meeting in four years.    Chad Kelly and Phillip Walker are the only other Colts quarterbacks available,  both listed in the training camp roster, and the team depth chart, probably available to play tonight, since neither Jacoby Brissett or Andrew Luck will play the rest of the preseason.   Current Bears Defensive Coordinator Chuck Pagano also returns to Indianapolis, where was the Colts Head Coach from 2012-2017.   Indianapolis and Chicago are playing their 16th all-time preseason game, with the Colts leading the all-time preseason series between the teams at 9-5-1.  Colts defeated the Bears in their last game, and visit to Indianapolis by the score of 23-11 back on August 22, 2015.   Indianapolis also  currently leads the all-time regular season series at 23-11, including  winning Super Bowl XLI over the Bears, their only playoff win  over Chicago.  Colts also defeated the Bears, winning 29-23, during both teams last regular season meeting also played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building),  back on October 9, 2016.   Colts may play the Bears at Soldier Field, when the AFC South teams play the NFC North teams during interdivisional play in the 2020 NFL regular season.   Colts defeated the Bears  29-17 in Super Bowl XLI, during  the rainy, and then-named at the time, Dolphins Stadium At Miami Gardens, back on February 4, 2007.   The 2006 Colts team that finished 12-4 during the regular season were lead by  Head Coach Tony Dungy, and Super Bowl XLI MVP  QB Peyton Manning.   LOS's retractable roof might be open for tonight's 7:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because the local gamecast around the stadium area is 75 degrees, 0% precipitation, 52% humidity, and  east/northeast winds at 11 miles per hour.   Great luck to all the Colts and Bears players, especially the backup players and reserves, as they continue to audition during their  training bears-week-3-camp, and the preseason games, on trying to make the cut to the final 53.   NO injuries, GO Blue Horseshoe, Win Your First Preseason Game, And Home Game In Your 2019 NFL Season, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!                 .    https://colts.com/news/bears-week-3-preseason-preview   https://colts.com/game-day/2019/pre/bears-at-colts/   https://nfl.com/gamecenter/2019082452/2019/PRE3/bears@colts   https://indystar.com/sports/colts   https://chicagobears.com/news/pagano-expects-an-emotional-return-to-Indy  
    • Tom Brady wanted to trademark the nickname "Tom Terrific".    He lost.  The US Patent and Trademark office rejected Brady's request to trademark the term. Brady says he was trying to protect Tom Seaver's nickname. Lolol. Spare me, Brady.    “Has anyone ever even called him ‘Tom Terrific’?” Mr. Talansky said. “Was ‘Vainglorious Cheater’ already trademarked?”   Tom Brady Is No ‘Tom Terrific.’ Any New Yorker Can Tell You That. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/nyregion/tom-brady-seaver-terrific.html  
    • Bummer that all the starters are out! I’m going with a group of friends, including some Bears fans(Boo!). Alot of people on here saying they feel bad for people going and that it’s too much money to go watch scrubs....Going to a game at Lucas is more then just watching the game. It’s about tailgating, hanging out with good friends and having a good time, razzing the opposing teams fans, all in fun of course, and also hanging out with fellow bleed blue colts fans! Same reason I went to watch the Cubs even during the bad years, the atmosphere and fans were awesome no matter what. I don’t really mind watching the second and third stringers fighting for their futures.    As far as price, I got a pretty good seat for $48, so can’t complain. It’s going to be a fun day no matter what, not going in with high expectations like I do during regular season.
    • Well, you are rounding into mid-season form early this year. Good Job 
    • Walker did look much better last game compared to week 1, so props to him. Still, no comparison to CK. I had mixed emotions about bringing CK in, but now I really hope things work out. He looks "in command" and has a nice rhythm to his game. And he can make all the passes and has wheels.     I know it's only 2 preseason games, but I can understand now why Elway made him QB2 in Denver. It'll make parting with JB much easier.    IF he can keep his head on straight/.
