new mock draft
posted at 3/12/2010 9:46 AM EST
In the FA we should go after Westbrook, Jason Taylor, and Crumpler.
Round 1 (traded)
Brandon Marshall WR (Denver Broncos) for the 22nd pick in this year’s draft
Jerry Hughes OLB (TCU)
Rob Gronkowski TE (Arizona)
Jared Veldheer OT (Hillsdale) Height: 6-8 Weight: 315
Vince Oghobaase DE (Duke) HT: 6'6" | WT: 300
-Disruptive at the point of attack, does a nice job finding gaps and getting into the backfield
-Plays with appropriate pad level, good lower-body strength makes him a valuable run stuffer
-Very athletic given his frame, shows surprising agility, initial quickness and lateral movement
-Uses his hands well to fend off blockers and make the tackle
-Can tie up multiple offensive linemen
-High football IQ
-Started every game in his career prior to this season's injury
-Would be best off as a 3-4 defensive end, but has enough size as strength to fit in a 4-3
O'Brien Schofield OLB/ILB (Wisconsin)
He tore his ACL during Senior Bowl practices. He was a solid 2-3 round pick prior to the injury. Now he could go 6-7 round or undrafted. Schofield projects to ILB in the NFL. He states he's 6-2+, 245-250. He claims during a Junior Pro Day he ran a 4.43 in shorts on field turf, a school record. Officially his 40 is 4.63 which is still pretty decent.
Obviously he will need a year to recover and return to form but maybe he'd be worth a 6-7th rounder, let him sit out and learn while he rehabs. If he returns to form in 2011, it would be such a nice gain hopefully like what we hope happens with McKenzie this year.
Perry Riley OLB (LSU)
Zoltan Mesko P (Michigan) or Jeremy Boone P (Penn State)
Richard Dickson TE/FB (LSU)
Chris Marinelli OT (Stanford)
He has the versatility to play guard or tackle at the next level, thanks to his intelligence, size, strength, foot speed and nasty streak. That's a lot of things for NFL offensive line coaches to like
Curtis Steele RB (Memphis)
Patrick Stoudamire CB (Western Illinois)
Trindon Holiday WR/KR (LSU) 5-5, 162, 4.27 small but extremely fast with good hands.
