Pre-combine mock draft
Its tough to judge value before the combine and workouts, but heres where i am as far as value and likely picks.
not all picks in concrete decided yet, coin flips and playoffs are still pending
also, you dont have to agree with me, this pre combine and workouts drafts are pretty premature. some of these picks may seem a little unconventional
St Louis- Jimmy Clausen
They need a face of the franchise, I love clausen as a pro but he doesn’t deserve to go over Suh and Berry.
Detroit- Ndamukong Suh
Instant difference maker, he and Sammie Lee Hill will be a top interior Dline for years.
Tampa- Eric Berry
Tampa has always been about defense, they could use Dline but Gerald Mccoy would be a reach here and Berry is an Elite talent. Barber is old, Talib is a nice CB and Berry/Talib would be nice in the secondary.
Washington- Gerald Mccoy
Playing next to haynesworth would be the IDEAL situation for mccoy who is no where near suhs level in any way
Kansas City- Russell Okung
Cliché Pick but it makes sense…they passed on some LTs last year for Tyson Jackson, the need to pair him up with branden albert and they will have some studs keeping cassel upright
Seattle - Anthony Daivs
They need a Qb but Bradford has no value here. They draft Anthony Davis because Walter Jones is old and dying. Pete got the job but I don’t think hes gonna have much power right away, especially not enough to grab his boy mays.
Cleveland- Dez Bryant
Trading away Edwards and leaving them with a bunch of scrubs at WR, they need a playmaker and I think Bryant will be valued here.
Oakland- Taylor Mays
I know how Al davis is, everyone does, but I still cant even believe the heyward-bey pick….just unreal. Mays will give Davis all he dreams about.
Buffalo- Arrelious Benn
I honestly have no clue where benn is going to be selected, i think workouts could push him into a spot around here. I hate projecting the bills pick more than i do the raiders or patriots
Jacksonville- Tim Tebow
Yeah yeah yeah….not worth it, we all know. The jags want to sell tickets and if derrick Harvey and reggie nelson are any idication…they love local heroes. I think this pick is a lock, especially because I don’t think teams will let him slip out of the first round so this is their chance at their boy. Hes a 5th round talent with a legendary resume
Denver- Rolando Mcclain
He SHOULD be a jag, but they are idiots and the broncos get a stud LB. Hes perfect for the middle as the still make the transition to a 34
Miami- Terrence Cody
They have some great young talent on the dline. Langford, merling, cody….awesome line, perfect 34 line.
San Francisco- Trent Williams
They Love that hes here, he can play RT for them right away.
Seattle- Sam Bradford
Not crazy about him, but he can play in the seahawks west coast offense. The seahawks have now found their answer to alex smith (lol)
New York Giants- Brandon Spikes
Pierce-old, danny clark-old, sintim-stud….spikes can play middle and strong.
Tennessee- Dan Williams
As they search for haynesworths replacement they find themselves with dan Williams who can be a disruptor in the middle of a 43 line.
San Francisco – Joe Haden
They love to see him here, someone to team up with Nate Clements and give them 2 great corners to match teams like AZ and their passing attack
Pittsburgh- Earl Thomas
Clark is likely done, even if hes not, hes a liability in ocverage anyway. Earl Thomas and Polamalu could be legendary. Not the elite prospect berry is, but as close as you can get. Bulaga would make sense but the steelers in in offensive line denial.
Atlanta- Jason Pierre-Paul
Perfect for them to put opposite Abraham. Abraham, jerry, bump Anderson to DT and JPP on the end they have a dline that will be a handful.
Houston- CJ Spiller
The run game suffered when slaton went down. Hes a part time back anyway and brown, moats and the other guy are nothing more than backups. Spiller will dominate in the zone blocking scheme they run.
Cincinnati- Golden Tate
Vertical threat at WR for them which was a problem for them last year, he’ll be able to play right away.
New England- Colt Mccoy
Im sayin this pick happens, he sits behind brady for a year and brady walks. Its just my pick, you don’t have to agree with it….i think dunlap is a possibility here as well, but we have to wait on the Julius peppers rumors.
Green Bay- Bryan Bulaga
Rodgers got sacked A LOT, and the packers love white guys. Hes a legit LT prospect
Philadelphia- Mike Iupati
The shawn Andrews era has ended, hes the best guard prospect since….well, shawn andrews
Baltimore- Jermaine Greshem
Heap is old, they want to get flacco some more weapons. Greshem is a terrific pass catching TE.
Arizona- Sergio Kindle
Clark Haggans is old and they cant just keep franchising dansby every year
New York Jets - Damien Williams
Legit first round talent, Edwards is probably on his way out. Sanchez played with Williams at USC…it makes sense
Dallas- Corey Wootton
Not your typical 34 end, but an intriguing player with all the tools to be moved around on the line. Hes the type of DE in a 34 that will bring pressure, which is a rarity but nice to have. Spears and Igor played well but they need some depth on the Dline
Minnesota- Carlos Dunlap
They weren’t scared away from percy harvin….this gives them a legit end opposite Allen.
San Diego- Bruce Campbell
He didn’t have a great year but hes an incredibly gifted athlete and with some coaching could be a difference maker in both the run and pass game
Indianapolis- Sean Witherspoon.
Linebacker is definitely the biggest weakness, especially on the weak side, witherspoon is perfect for that spot and will be a tackling machine
New Orleans- Jonathan Dwyer
They are pissed the colts took witherspoon, rumor is the coveted beanie wells last year and dwyer will give them a tough, inside, physical runner that they want. Bush is likely gone so depth is a concern
