My intention isn't to flood the fanposts, but I have the rare fortune of a little time this week and since I have 6 mock drafts, I am going to hit it while I can. Please keep commenting on the previous mocks if you so desire. I really appreciate the interest and conversation. Without this site, I wouldn't have even thought of a quarter of these ideas or known half of these players without all the excellent feedback. And remember, front offices DO read these sites to, at least, get the pulse of their fans. Of course they are going to do their own thing, but it doesn't hurt to make your opinions and ideas known. You just never know who's watching. Once again, I am using a combination of Top 200 lists and respected mock drafts to come up with possible positionings of players chosen. Tampa Bay has put us on the clock. Here we go:
#3 (1) - - - - Russel Okung, OT, Oklahoma State I can think of worse things than a pair of monster OT bookends.
#33 (2) - - - Colt McCoy, QB, Texas This pick in this place probably won't change unless we are SURE he will fall.
#35 (2) - - - Everson Griffen, DE, USC If Detroit nabs him at #34 then go Jahvid Best RB of Cal
#42 (2) - - - Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan Holy Moly this would be intriguing.
#65 (3) - - - Arthur Jones, DT, Syracuse Very underrated player who will provide a nice addition to DLine.
#96 (4) - - - Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford Wouldn't it be awesome to have a Change of Punishment back?
#128 (5) - - Riley Cooper, WR, Florida Great height 6'3", good speed 4.4, and finished strong. On the rise.
#151 (5) - - Thomas Austin, OG, Clemson Versatile, can play OG and C, and serves as insurance on Setterstrom.
#160 (6) - - Jamar Wall, CB, Texas Tech Made Big 12 Second Team in a difficult conference for DBs. Tackles well.
#192 (7) - - Keenan Clayton, OLB, Oklahoma Former S needs some of that Spag's Magic. Good size+speed. Raw.
#210 (7) - - Tim Hiller, QB, Western Michigan High upside. Great size. Raw tools. Please, no more Keith Null.
With this mock draft, my obvious hope is that we can get the TE Tony S. from Denver. Who knows. Coming in at #3 was Seattle. God, I hate the Seahawks. Why can't we beat them? Oh, well. Stay tuned for Mock Draft #3.
