Chuck's pre-Mock 1.0
I am sure this will change a bit, including Lacy moving up (a made this before the BCS Championship game). Here's my first pre-Mock 1.0:
Round 1: Barkevious Mingo - OLB, LSU Possibilities - Minter, Okafor, Vaccaro. Linebacker is a must. I am still convinced Hightower was our pick last year until DeCastro fell in our laps.
Round 2: Eric Reid, S, LSU (Maybe Lacy here, but a RB is a definite need)
Round 3: Ed Lacy , RB - Alabama (his stock on the rise, we may need to grab him Round 2). If so, best S left is taken here.
Round 4: Zac Dysert - QB - Miami (Second in most Miami, Ohio QB records by a fellow named Roethlesberger). Big kid, time to draft a legitimate back-up QB, why not Dysert? Could be Landry as well.
Round 5: Ryan Swope, WR - Texas A&M - Big play maker - Good-bye Wallace.
Round 6: D.J. Swearinger, S - South Carolina - Play making ball-hawk that delivers big time hits. From the SEC, need I say more? Oh, Clowney's team-mate on a punishing defense.
Round 7: Brian Winters, OT - Kent State - Big time potential from a small school (my alma-mater, aka Linebacker U. (Lambert, Harrison). Also NFL players: Cribbs, Antonio Gates, and Edelman.
Ya your right Lacy is probably in the 2nd round now... But if that draft happened i would be totally content...
Since Lacy probably goes in the 2nd tho and i think we need a good RB... id take him in the 2nd and replace lacy in the 3rd with Rambo... that would be a good draft too Mingo, Lacy, Rambo, Dysert, Swope, Swearinger, Winters... Id take it...
swope will never be there in the 5th
mingo, reid and lacy would be amazing, but i highly doubt lacy falls past the first couple picks in the second round.

I still have yet to do my official pre combine one too, just been doing alot of In my dreams mocks...
ill make my first mock sometime in the next few days[/QUOTE]
Hell Yeah, Cant wait Ktrain
Dysert is rated 3rd on a number of boards if he goes he will go in the bottom of 1 or 2 .the thing that stands out to me about him is the numbers he put up with no talent around him but i understand it's the MAC .I too will be soon posting my first mock
Chuck's pre-Mock 1.1
Round 1: IT HAS TO BE LB and comes down to team-mates: Barkevious Mingo - OLB, LSU OR Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU, 6-2, 244, the 3rd best rated LB in the draft. Foote and Harrison long of tooth, Woodley has disappointed of late and Spence coming off serious knee injury and never has played a down in the NFL. Our defense lives or dies by the play of the LB.
Round 2: Ed Lacy , RB - Alabama (his stock on the rise, I had him Round 3 previous mock, we have to grab him in Round 2). Our running game quite possibly the worst shape in 20 years. For an organization that prides itself in the run this is unacceptable. Look for a RB in Round 2 and if Lacy is there it will be him.
Round 3: Zac Dysert - QB - Miami (Second in most Miami, Ohio QB records by a fellow named Roethlesberger). Big kid, time to draft a legitimate back-up QB, why not Dysert? Could be Landry as well. Time to draft a legitimate #2 QB to groom.
Round 4: Ryan Swope, WR - Texas A&M - Big play maker - Good-bye Wallace. Need to snag him here. He won't last much longer.
Round 5: Brian Winters, OT - Kent State - We still need to shore up that OL. Big time potential from a small school (my alma-mater, aka Linebacker U. (Lambert, Harrison). Also NFL players: Cribbs, Antonio Gates, and Edelman.
Round 6: T.J. McDonald, S - USC - We get our USC safety, but it is not Swearinger from USC (South Carolina). Swearinger missed bowl game and did not cancel, effectively eliminating himself from consideration by the Steelers. McDonald has size (6-3, 205), but a little raw. He can sit a year and learn from Clark, Troy, and Lake.
Round 7: Bruce Taylor, LB - VT - Good prospect, special teams ace, depth at LB.
in what world is TJ mcdonald a 6th rounder
In Chuck's world. LOL. He may go higher. This is still a pre-Mock, although it is now 1.1
