Default Mock Draft (with trades)

I'm not necessarily doing this for realism as I doubt the front office would make both of the trades, but more of my ideal scenario of what pans out on draft day.

1. Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado (trade picks 31 and our 3rd round pick to Philadelphia and select with pick 23)
2. Stefen Wisniewski, G, Penn State (trade pick 63 and our 3rd round pick in 2012 to select in the 40's)
3. (Traded)
4. Ian Williams, NT, Notre Dame
5. Steven Friday, OLB, Virginia Tech
6. Alex Henery, K, Nebraska
6. Henry Hynoski, FB, Pittsburgh (trade 7th rounder this year and 6th rounder in 2012)
7. (traded)

I know Arians doesn't use a fullback but Hynoski is a good pass-catcher and maybe he'll catch Arians's eye for being a fullback he could still use in the passing attack (which I think is one of the reasons why he doesn't like to use a FB)

Thoughts?

Really like both Jimmy Smith and Alex Henery. Not a big fan of trading up for Wisniewski, don't think he fits our scheme. I'd rather trade up for TCU's Marcus Cannon, or not trade up at all. Same for Henry Hynoksi, I'd rather trade up for Stanford's Owen Marecic, even though I think he'll be gone by there.

Other than that, good stuff!

i would love Jimmy Smith but we wont get him. he is a bug tough corner and will almost definatly be gone before we pick. i see you have us trading up but i really dont see us doing it for him

Wisniewski is likely a 1st round pick but even if he does slip to the 2nd it will be towards the begining of the round way before we pick and once again i doubt we will trade up

Isn't Wisniewski a little light in the britches? He seems to be more of a ZBS guard

I can definitely see that now with Colon looking unlikely to return, when I made this I was pretty sure we'd resign him but since then all the reports about Ike being first priority (not that he wasn't already but the whole one player at a time approach makes things different) and Colon's agent saying he won't come back came out so I could see tackle overtaking our guard need.
