Another Mock Draft

I just used "on the clock" simulator game and came up with my favorite mock draft to date. Using the Walter Football Big Board I came up with the following draft.


1:15 CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State----- This was a toss up for me with Mike Evans still available also, but in the end I decided to go with the playmaking corner that the defense has been missing for a long time.

2:46 WR Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt------ My decision in the first don't look so bad now when I grab my favorite receiver not named Watkins. I mean come on this kid is related to the great one, Jerry Rice, and if he has half of his work ethic he will succeed.

3:97 OLB Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas------This is another good football pedigree that I feel could become a good to great OLB with the proper coaching.

4:118 DE Brent Urban, Virginia------ Has good initial quickness and was originally recruited to play DE in the 3-4. Would make a good complement opposite Heyward.

5:157 DT Justin Ellis, Louisiana Tech----- Could be a possible 3 down NT as he shows good upfield penetration and has the size to become a run stuffer.

5:173 RB De'Anthony Thomas, Oregon----- The Kick/Punt Returner we need plus could be a very dangerous offensive weapon used properly.

6:192 WR Devin Street, Pittsburgh----- A tall receiver with good hands who is also already familiar to the Pittsburgh area, was a steal at this point in the draft in my opinion.

6:215 CB Aaron Colvin, Oklahoma----- Will have to redshirt his first year, but could become an absolute steal after rehabbing from his injury and if not the team don't lose much in the gamble.

7:230 OLB Shaquil Barrett, Colorado State----- I wanted a OLB prospect here and there were several to choose from but I feel that new coach Joey Porter may push in this direction due to his familiarity with the player.

There you have it this is my shot at playing GM and I actually am pretty happy with the way things worked out as I addressed a lot of team needs without reaching in any round (with maybe an exception on Barrett). The players were all picked from the top 5 available at the time each was chosen excluding QBs.
