Time for my mock

Recommended Posts

With the draft fast approaching here is my one and only mock. I incorporated some trades in my mock

this year because Ballard always seems to trade and I also think he will try to acquire more picks. My

trades are reasonable and provide value.( I think)

   Round 2: trade pick 34 to Browns for pick 41 and 115, select Denzel Mims, wr Baylor.

   Round 2: trade pick 44 to Falcons for pick 47 and 119, select A.J. Terrell, cb Clemson.

   Round 3: pick 75, Brycen Hopkins, te Purdue.

   Round 4: pick 115, Calvin Throckmorton, ol Oregon.

   Round 4: pick 119, Akeem Davis-Gaither, lb Appalachian St.

   Round 4: pick 122, Trevis Gipson, de, Tulsa.

   Round 5: pick 160, Parnell Motley, cb Oklahoma.

   Round 6: pick 193, Terrell Burgess, s, Utah

   Round 6: pick 197, Steven Gonzales, og, Penn St.

Well, what do you think, I know the glaring omission in my draft is qb, but I just can't see spending a draft pick 

on a player, regardless of who he may be, that doesn't have anymore potential than Chad Kelly. Lots of defense

in my draft, and 2 o-linemen to try to soften the loss of Haeg. My favorite pick would be Motley, the dude can

flat out play.

I've had my eye on Throckmorton for a long time.  He had a terrible senior bowl, but he's long on experience, and has played at multiple positions.  At the very least, he would satisfactorily make up for the loss of Haeg.

The surname Throckmorton was first found in Worcestershire at Throckmorton, a chapelry, in the parish of Fladbury, union of Pershore, Middle division of the hundred of Oswaldslow "where John de Trockemerton, the supposed ancestor of this family, was living about the year 1200. From this John descended, after many generations, another 'John Throkmerton,' who was according to Leland, 'the first settler up of his name to any worship in Throckmerton village."

OMG!  Do I detect a fellow historical researcher?  Perhaps for renaissance faire purposes???

 

Did you do this research because of Sir Francis Throckmorton, who plotted to assassinate Queen Elizabeth in 1583?

I just love names and where they come from. I don't do a lot of researching, (well, I did this time), but I do ask a lot of my customers where there interesting names come from. Some times I even guess right!

I truly hope we do make a trade at some point for more picks but Mims will be gone in the first round. Had an unreal combine and has all the traits teams are looking for with a need at WR. I think the Terrell pick is very possible but I do see us going offense with our first three picks at least and signing one more defensive player in free agency.

I am going to make one change to my draft, I don't see much of a chance that Burgess will be there in the 6th round so I'll change that pick to Chris Miller a safety from Baylor. There are so many different ways to approach this draft it will be interesting to see how wrong I am again this year.

I can’t imagine we won’t pick at a mimimum 2 WR this draft.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see 3 BP).  I do like your trades though.  This would be likely especially the pick 44.  I have the feeling we might use the 34 trading up to get  a QB.  I think we pass on TE this year.

    • Part of what makes a player great over his career is longevity.  The rule of thumb I have always heard for HOF selection is 'a decade of dominance.'  Unless you really change the game, you have to have ~a decade of being an elite player to get in (an exception may be a guy like Megatron, because his combo of size, speed, power, hands, etc. in some ways revolutionized the game of football).   Leonard is certainly off to a good start.. and by a stats comparison, a better start than Lewis.  Lewis was not an all-pro (first or second team) as a rookie.  He was 2nd team in his 2nd and 3rd years, and again in 2010.  He was first team 7 times.   Leonard was a first team all pro as a rookie, which is very rare.  He was 2nd team in year 2, a year in which he missed 3+ games.  Leonard was the defensive rookie of the year (Simeon Rice got that award when Lewis was a rookie).  At the same points in their careers, Leonard has proven to be better at causing turnovers (his INT numbers are outstanding for a LBer)... but, he also plays in a different scheme and a different position (most of the time), so that's hard to really judge.   Lewis was a 2x NFL Defensive Player of the Year.  Leonard has not done that yet.  I don't doubt that he's capable of it, but he hasn't.  Lewis was a 2x Superbowl Champion and a 1x SB MVP, both things which Leonard hasn't accomplished.  Lewis was a 13x pro-bowler.. like Leonard, he missed out his rookie year.  Lewis is also on the 2000's all-decade team as the best at his position during that decade.   In terms of off-field stuff, Leonard seems to have less baggage than Lewis did at a young age.  That said, Lewis did seem to clean up his act after that alleged murder incident.  He also seems to be a pretty solid guy now and has several charities and does a lot for young minority communities.     In terms of on-field leadership, Lewis was outstanding.  I don't know how long that took, as I don't follow Baltimore as intensely as I do Indy (i.e., was he a captain in his second year and a tremendous leader of men as a rookie? I don't know).  Leonard, was named team captain in his 2nd year, and he was a leader right out of the gates.  From all interviews and things I've read, his coaches and teammates view him as the leader of the Indy D and seemingly have after just a few games as a rookie -- that's rare.   In short, Leonard is off to a heckuva start to his career.... but, let's hold off on comparing him to a first-ballot HOFer.  If he keeps it up for another 8-12 years, this thread deserves to be revisited.  
    • I am not calling Barkley a choker because when he went to  Philly they were not the same team that had won the finale in 1983. When he played for Phoenix they were a 50% team. His last 4 years with Houston he only stated 152 games in four years due to injury. He averaged 22.1 pts and 11.7 rebounds in his career. In the playoffs he averaged 23 pts and 12.9 rebounds.  He was the rebound leader in 1987 at 6'5".  He was the MVP in 1993. He also was the team leader for both Gold Medals in the Olympics in 1992 and 1996.  Sorry IMO those are not choker numbers. 
    • I find it very unlikely a team signs Kelly off our practice squad. If we want to run 3 QBs and keep Kelly on the PS we probably can.
    • That's right.  We are a still a pretty young team so most of our guys will be better than last season. All of us have to be excited to have Buckner on this roster. He should make all of our D backs have better grades. The addition of Taylor makes us very dangerous on the ground as well.  Stay positive my friend. 
    • I think this team is like 2018, except we have Rivers instead of Luck. Better team too. Love getting Buckner, liked the draft a lot. I think we win the division with a shot at the SB if things go right. Lets hope for the best!
