This by NO MEANS means I am giving up on this season. I repeat I am not giving up on this season. I just like drafting. Might make it a career but anyway here we go.
As of right now we would be middle of the draft most likely at 14 or 15.
2nd: Matt Reynolds/OT/Pitt.: I have been thinking this 1 over a bit. As much as I want to grab a DE were stock piled at that position. The fact being I don't trust Baker to protect Matt's blind side for years to come. Reynolds will be that man. He is big, strong, and has quick feet. He also has a mean streak which I know Smitty likes. He is coached by the same guy who groomed Logan Mankins and he has compared him to Logan often.
3rd. Eddie Whitley/FS/VT: Ahh remember the good ole days? When we drafted Hokies with almost all our picks. Well here we go again. I think its time for a change at FS. Decoud gets beat often, takes bad angle, and often misses tackles. Whitley is a ballhawk and has good instincts.
5th: Ladarius Green/TE/Louis-Lafayette: Another steal in the 5th. Here is Gonzo's successor. 6'6, 230lbs and has great hands. He runs like a WR and is a mismatch for any defense. Reminds me of Jermicheal Finley.
6th. John Brantley/QB/Fla.: Redman is getting up in years and we need to start to groom a reliable back up. Brantley has nice size, arm strength, and accuracy. He also has improved under Charlie Weiss's pro style offense. Brantley was injured earlier this year and might be tempted to stay another year.
7th. Brandon Bolden/RB/Ole Miss.: Jason Snelling was only signed to a 1 year deal and I don't think he will be retained after this 1. Here is his replacement. He reminds me of Snelling and Starks a little. He is a big back with soft hands and is athletic enough to hurdle opponents. He should be a nice addition to our rotation.
So this is my early mock. I know the big problem is the coaching staff but a quick look at upcoming players never hurt.
