With free agency signings winding down and the misinformation machine in overdrive, we’re entering the final stretch of Mock Draft Season! Below is my latest Round One Mock Draft put together using KFFL’s Mock Draft Machine. In the category of Awesome-ways-to-kill-work-productivity goes, this is at the top of the list! I highly recommend.
On to the picks………….
Analysis: I know I’m not the only one that has had Clowney penciled in as the top pick for over a year now. He is special. It would take a QB prospect the likes of Andrew Luck for me to bypass Clowney. In a league predicated on match-ups, Clowney and Watt on the same defensive front is borderline criminal!
I’ve got a combined 6 DL and LBs in the first half of this class. That speaks not only to the depth of the position, but the premium placed on disruptive defenders.
Ultimately I think Mike Evans goes in the Top 10. 6’5″ – 231 lbs. with 4.5s speed just doesn’t grow on trees. The WR depth in this class is incredible. There are going to be WR bargains to be had in the 2nd and 3rd round.
Ozzie Newsome and Ted Thompson continue doing what they always do: patiently wait for a super talent player to fall to them. Gilbert is in a dead heat with Dennard to be the first CB drafted this year. He is a good get at 17.
Derek “you have to believe me, I’m way better than my brother” Carr makes it 4 QBs in the first round.
Like I said when I was shitting all over Ginger’s Mock 1.0, I’ll take the under on RB’s going in the first round this year. And that’s not necessarily a knock on Hyde or Mason, both of whom I personally enjoy watching and think will be big time contributors at the NFL level, but more of a statement on the environment of the league today. It’s a passing-first (second, and third) league. QB, Pass-rusher, CB, OL and WR are much more valuable than running backs. The Texans and Vikings have had the most productive running backs in the league for a few years in Arian Foster and Adrian Peterson, and they are both picking in the Top 10.
