Mock Draft v1.00

I used the "On the Clock" draft simulator to run a draft this morning before work. Granted, there are some problems with the decision engine but it's what I had available.

I used the BTSC big board and started drafting. The results were...surprising.

You want some big receivers, Ben?

15 OT JAKE MATTHEWS, TEXAS A&M - I had Dennard in my sights from the very beginning. I already had the name on the card, ready to draft when Matthews began to fall. There was a run on QBs and WRs in Round 1 and Matthews paid the price. As much as I wanted a CB in the 2nd round, this would be too good of a value to pass up.

46 DT RA'SHEDE HAGEMAN, MINNESOTA - Round 1 talent is available at pick #46? Yes, please. These two picks would help shore up the OL and DL woes.

97 WR DONTE MONCRIEF, OLE MISS - Since I'm a good southern boy, when stuck for a pick I tend to fall back to the SEC. He's tall (6'2"+) and good top end speed (4.40). He could take the top off a defense and give Ben a target in the red zone. I'll take it.

118 CB MARCUS ROBERSON, FLORIDA - Kick Returner and potentially a good cover corner. He falls this low because of a bad combine and worse pro day. Tape doesn't lie though and I think he'll be a solid #3. He's young and could be molded by Lebeau into something special.

157 CB PHILLIP GAINES, RICE - His stock is rising and I didn't think he will be available at #157. He was. This is a bargain pick. He is blazingly-fast and excelled against mediocre talent.

173 OLB SHAQUIL BARRETT, COLORADO STATE - I completely trusted the big board here. I haven't seen Barrett play much. I'm unsure about this pick.

192 WR KEVIN NORWOOD, ALABAMA - Back to the SEC I go. I watched every one of his games this year. He is solid, steady, and reliable. He's tall (6'2") and has good hands.

215 TE ARTHUR LYNCH, GEORGIA - Two-year starter who is a solid blocker and has decent receiving skills. Seemed like good value down here at the end of the 6th round.

230 G RYAN GROY, WISCONSIN - Played both tackle and guard at Wisconsin. He's a multi-year starter and a dynamic athlete. Provides depth across the line.

What are your thoughts? I don't proclaim to be an expert or prognosticator but if the draft fell like this, I'd be downright giddy.
