Mock Offseason

Figured I would take a stab at the whole mock draft/free agency thing. Comments and criticism encouraged.

Free agency:

Sign Matt Ryan and Jonathan Babineaux to long-term deals, freeing up some cap space in the process.

Resign William Moore, Sam Baker, Garrett Reynolds, Vance Walker, Chris Owens, Antone Smith, and Robert McClain.

Cut Michael Turner and Peria Jerry.

Tony Gonzalez and Todd McClure retire.

Let Brent Grimes, Will Svitek, Lawrence Sidbury, Michael Palmer, and Chris Hope walk.

Sign Ed Dickson. I'm not a fan of overpaying for Jared Cook, and I think Dickson could be a valuable weapon for very cheap.


*Trade* 1st round pick and 2 7th round complementary picks for New York Jets 2nd and 4th round picks.

Round 2 (Jets) - Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU

Would start across from Abraham. Lots of other options here, with so many talented pass rushers in this draft. Alex Okafor is my favorite, but many different players could fall here. Margus Hunt and Brandon Jenkins would be backup picks.

Round 2 - Larry Warford, OG, Kentucky

Instant starter at RG. Huge, nasty, roadgrader. Other possibilities include Dallas Thomas, Barrett Jones, and Alvin Bailey.

Round 3 - Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati

Would compliment Dickson well. Kelce would be better in the red zone and moving the chains, while Dickson would be more of a matchup nightmare/x-factor type. Other possiblities are Jordan Reed and Dion Sims.

Round 4 (Jets) - Jordan Hill, DT, Penn State

Rotational defensive tackle, who could start over Corey Peters. Very strong and agile, great character player. Other options include Brandon Williams and Kwame Geathers.

Round 4 - Le'Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State

Would be part of three-headed rushing attack with Snelling and Quizz. Runs like a rodeo bull, and shockingly athletic. Floor is LaGarrette Blount, ceiling is Marshawn Lynch. Other options include Stepfan Taylor, Mike Gillislee, or Kenjon Barner.

Round 4 (Comp.) - Gerald Hodges, LB, Penn State

Could start at outside linebacker with Nich shifting in, or could start at middle linebacker. Combines freakish athleticism with old-school, nasty linebacker mentality and football smarts. Great leader at Penn State. Former safety, even returned kicks briefly at Penn State. Incredible athleticism. Other options include Kevin Reddick, Vince Williams, and Michael Mauti.

Round 5 - Ace Sanders, WR/RS, South Carolina

Phenomenal returner, instantly one of the league's premier returnmen. Would also add an extra wrinkle to the offense complimenting HD in the slot. Very shifty and great burst. Other options include Marquise Goodwin and Connor Vernon.

Round 6 - Shamarko Thomas, S, Syracuse

Great speed, would pair with Charles Mitchell as backup safeties. Would be a great special teams performer with incredible speed and willingness to hit. Other options include Jahleel Addae and Daimion Stafford.

Round 7 - Rod Sweeting, CB, Georgia Tech

Another super-fast defensive back, who could add great value on special teams. Productive corner at GT, would add solid depth. Other options include Demontre Hurst and Dustin Harris.

Round 7 (Comp.) - Dan Buckner, WR, Arizona

Big receiver with speed who could help in the red zone. Lots of potential, well worth a late round flyer. Other options include Marquess Wilson and Uzoma Nwachukwu.
