1st crack ever mock draft


Recommended Posts

Maybe we can turn this into a feedback thread for us first-timers, if OP doesn’t mind?
I haven’t done a lot of these and don’t really know college football, but here we go (based off of pff simulations)
 

42 - Jalen Pitre, Baylor, CB (some has him as safety)

73 - Alex Pierce, Cincinatti, WR

122 - Cordale Flott, LSU, CB

159 - Grant Calcaterra, SMU, TE

179 - JT Woods, Baylor, S

216 - Ryan van Demark, Connecticut, T

240 - Patrick Paul, Houston, T

 

Mixing it up a bit regarding O and D. Had Josh Johnson as an alternative at 159, WR from Tulsa.

I like Alec pierce, he screams steal in round 3 to me, I love how his workout and his production match up to him being a good football play and it’s not just one or the other, while he is still not getting the hype of say a drake London who measures comparable

What? Drake is a top prospect that had better stats last year while only playing 8 games. They are not comparable. Pierce looks like a guy that should be drafted in the 3rd or later. London is a 1st rounder.

Yes there is a reason that London is going rd 1 and pierce later, and the reason is valid, and to me London is wr1 in this class over Williams and burks Wilson all them, but those 2 are comparable in measurable and game tape, so to get someone comparable toon the 3rd is a steal. I’ll get roasted for this but I think it’s not far fetched ... think 2017 if drake London is mike Williams and Alec pierce is cooper kupp. Now I’m not saying piece will be kupp, but what I’m saying is the potential is there to turn out that way.

I really like what little I've seen of Pierce. He plays BIG. He just dominates CBs.

He dominates corners at a low level of competition by running straight past them. That’s it. There’s no finesse to his game at all.

He is not dominating top talent. He was % down against Bama - their CB’s are pro level. The guy runs straight. He is seen as a limited guy with routes and someone who doesn’t get good separation against top talent. Now hopefully coaching helps

I remember my first crack…
 

 

In all seriousness though, that’s a solid mock. 

I was going to do that joke!

 

I agree, looks very good.

 

Initially I thought that possibly taking a qb in the 2nd was the way to go, but the more mocks I go over or simulate...even if Pickett slides that far it just seems more like a luxury than a necessity. I still think another qb needs to be brought in but the needs at WR, TE, and Tackle are more necessary right now(possibly FA options will be brought in after the draft).

I 95% agree ... but if Pickett falls to us and we don’t pick him I’m gonna cry lol

    • Did you get to see the game? KT had sooo much bad luck on soft hits
    • I’m old enough to remember the 2021 season. 
    • My top 15 would be: Based on eye test (except Graham, Starr, and Unitas as I was too young to watch them live but I have seen film on them), stats, MVP's, over all win shares, longevity, talent, and clutchness, etc..   1. Tom Brady - eventhough I feel weary putting him here because there have been a couple of cheating scandals. 7 SB wins, 5 SB MVP's, 3 League MVP's, and his stats are among the best ever. His longevity is so impressive as well. He didn't cheat when the Bucs won it all in 2020, so there is that.   2. Joe Montana - 4 SB wins, 3 SB MVP's, 2 League MVP's. He had 0 INT's in 4 SB games, that is unbelievable.    3. Peyton Manning - 2 SB wins, 1 SB MVP,  5 League MVP's - most ever by any NFL player in history. He holds the record for most Yards (5477) and TD's (55) in 1 season = 2013. He was 3-1 vs Brady in AFC Title Games. I would put him in my top 3 all day. He is Mr. 12 wins a year.   4. Johnny Unitas - 1 SB win (1970) as an older starter but 2 NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959. He put up great stats for a QB that played in the 50's and 60's. He actually won a League MVP in the SB era (1967).   5. John Elway - Could do it all. Run, had a cannon for an arm. Once he got a running game in 1997 it wasn't fair. Won SB's in 1997 and 1998. Won League MVP in 1987. Stats wise not too shabby either = 50,000 yards passing and 300 TD's.   6. Aaron Rodgers - 1 SB win, 1 SB MVP, 4 League MVP's. He wins 12 or 13 games every year it seems in his sleep     7. Otto Graham - In his era, he dominated. Won several Championships. He belongs here at worse. I know how great he was but I just feel the other 6 QB's were better.   8. Drew Brees - Stats king, 1 SB win, he would be higher but no League MVP's.   9. Brett Favre - 1 SB win, he is the only NFL player to win 3 straight League MVP's in a row = 1995-1997. He put up huge numbers as well and was an iron man. He would be higher on this list but his total INT's has him here. He is still top 10 and fun to watch.   10. Dan Marino - the only QB I have in my top 10 that didn't win a SB/Championship. By eye test and talent alone he was top 10. He lost to Montana in his only SB appearance (1984), won the League MVP that season in 1984. He set records with TD passes and yards in 1984 that were video game numbers. He never had a defense or run game in his entire career.   11. Terry Bradshaw - He helped the Steelers to 4 SB wins, his stats weren't elite but he did win 1 League MVP, unlike lets say a Ben Roethlisberger who never won a League MVP. He had a stacked team but 4 is 4.   12. Steve Young - As a starter won 1 SB, had it not been for the Cowboys he probably wins 3. He won 2 League MVP's, Aikman never won an League MVP.   13. Roger Staubach - I think he was better than Aikman by the eye test who was also a Cowboys QB. He did win 2 SB's and went to 4 like Peyton as a starter. He was like Steve Young, he could run and scramble really well.   14. Troy Aikman - He helped the Cowboys win 3 SB's. Like Bradshaw on stacked teams but in big games his accuracy was spot on. IMO Emmitt Smith was the best player on his teams but without Troy they don't win 3 SB's either.   15. Patrick Mahomes - as a starter, has made 4 straight AFC Championships games, has won a SB and been too 2. He has won a League MVP, SB MVP, and has had a season where he threw for 5000 yards and 50 TD's = 2018. He is the best QB over the last 4 seasons easily and going into 2022 I have him #1. Even without Hill, they will still win the AFC West IMO.      - Omissions, people will say where in the hell is Sammy Baugh? Sammy is top 20 = great QB, here is the deal with Sammy. He was known as a top 20 football player of all-time because of his defense and punting ability along with his QB play, just not for his QB play. Was he a great QB, hell yes but not better than my top 15. Overall player he is arguably top 10 because of his defensive play and Punting ability's.    Where is Bart Starr? I say Top 20. He wasn't better than Mahomes though IMO.
    • Yup, after I posted, I looked it up. Looks like Coutee only had 2 weeks on the 53 last year, which he needs 6 min for an accrued season.    If TY isn't resigned, I think Coutee stands a decent chance of sticking on the 53. We're over stocked on bigs, not so much on Z/slot types. That is, unless they start running 6-3+ guys from Z... 
    • I think Coutee has one more year to accrue.
