I really like Adams with our first pick. He is very versatile, but I really think they want a OG over an OT, Gilbert and Colon will take the OT spots with J. Scott being backup and with Legursky, Foster, and possibly Essex as OG they really do not have a dominate guard on the team. But really good #1 pick.

Ta'Amu is a beast and he showed it in the Senior Bowl. He was sliding a little bit going into the Senior Bowl, but rebounded very well. If we can snag him in the 2nd then we will have our future Pro Bowl NT for years to come.

Not too sure if B. Washington will be there in the 3rd unless we trade up to get him. He had a great season and will most likely have a great combine. But if we get him our OL immediately gets better with M. Adams and B. Washington developing into great OL.

I like Whitley a lot. He has tremendous speed and he is a ball hawk. He is a great tackler as well and although he may never be a great starter having another Mundy on the team would really help us.

If we can get Jerry Franklin in the 5th RD that would be the steal of the draft. He has great speed and tackles everything. He will have to wait a little bit because he still has to develop, but he has so much raw talent and the potential to be great. I really hope we can get this guy.

They will not take a QB this season, especially Kellen Moore, they want a QB who can escape the pocket and extend the play and Moore never did that at BSU. I really think they will draft for depth and not for future when it comes to the later rounds. I can see us taking a CB or even another NT here.

I also think we will end up signing a veteran FB because he will be just as cheap as a 7th rounder and he will be fully developed instead of having a rookie FB block for Redman or whoever is running. They may attack a WR, CB, DE, or OLB in the 7th.

Great mock though man!
