Back again with another mock draft. Bowl season is under way and some players seem to be making some noise. This mock will be more of a BPA mock draft. So here we go.
RD 1: Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah/DE/BYU: Love this guy. He reminds me of JPP coming out. He came to BYU for track and started playing football his sophmore year. He has improved tremendously every year. At 6-6, 270 he runs a 4.60 40. Crazy right. He still is a raw prospect but he could develop to be a beast for us.

RD 2: Margus Hunt/DT-DE/SMU: Yes, back to back DE's. Margus Hunt is also a physical freak. This 6-8, 283lb monster had a huge game against Fresno State in the Hawaii Bowl. Again he is also a raw prospect and I doubt the comrade picks up back to back DE's but stranger things have happened. I think the versatility of Hunt and Ansah could prove beneficiary for a mastermind like Nolan since they both can play mutliple positions on the line.

RD 3: Mychal Rivera/TE/Tenn: We all know this is most likely Gonzo's last season in the NFL. Even if we do get a TE in FA ala a Jared Cook I still think it would be wise to draft a TE in the draft. Here is my guy for the job. He is a bit of a tweener since he is only 6'3, 244lbs but he has skills to contribute to this team. He just surpassed Jason Witten for most yards in a single season by a UT TE. I think he will be a good replacement for Gonzo.

RD 4: Micah Hyde/CB/Iowa: Grimes is most likely not returning next season and we're going to need some depth behind our current secondary. Hyde could have been a day 1 pick but got in some trouble for drinking. I'm pretty sure the FO will not like that but if he's available in the 4th we shouldn't think twice. He has good size, good speed, and a knack for forcing turnovers.

RD 4(Compensatory pick): Omoregie Uzzi/OG/GT: A smaller guard at only 300lbs, Uzzi has great mobility and would be a great fit for a zone blocking scheme. He also could play center if needed which adds to the versatility that TD likes in his offensive lineman. I think he could be a solid pick up in the 4th.
No videos on Uzzi.
RD 5: Cameron Lawrence/OLB/Miss St: This dude flies around the field. He was third in the SEC this season with 111 tackles and was a 2nd team All SEC selection. He also is the 1st MSU player to record back to back seasons with 100+ tackles. I think he is a sleeper prospect and could provide good depth for us at the linebacker position.

RD 6: Zac Stacy/RB/Vandy: I know some of you will say if we get another RB get him early. Which I would agree with if we could get a solid RB like Stepfan Taylor, Le'veon Bell, or Giovani Bernard. RBs come a dime a dozen and teams can find gems for RB more than any other position. Stacy is probably my favorite late round RB. He has been a workhorse for Vandy the last 2 seasons. He can catch out of the backfield and has good vision and patience. I think he can be a late round gem similiar to Morris for Washington. Him and Quizz would make up a nice backfield.

RD 7: Andre Debose/WR/Fla.: We need a dynamic returner. This guy fits the bill. He is a speed demon, home run threat kind of player. He has been passed up on the depth chart this season so his numbers aren't that great. However he has shown his ability before by burning Morris Claiborne and Dre Kirkpatrick last season in back to back games. I doubt he gets a lot of play time at WR but could be a stud as a KR/PR.

So there is my second mock draft. So tell me what you think?
