Default Re: Mock Draft

Kenny Vaccaro- S-Texas (OK w/Austin, Rhoades, Jesse Wms, Eifert)
I see no picks at 17 w/out some issues, must hit on #1, that’s why I’m sticking with Vaccaro, although not a Polamalu pick; fits a need should be above average safety for years.
David Amerson- CB/S S. Carolina (Lemonier, Brown, Green, Moore, Collins)
Ball hawk that provides depth at C and S immediately, time to grow into a starter, possibly to team with Vaccaro.
Ryan Swope- WR Texas Tech
Tough, quick, and fast, should soften the loss of Ward and Sanders.
LeVeon Bell-RB Mich. State
Not top notch acceleration or speed, but a complete back. The smaller backs aren’t that much faster, so I will go with what appears to be a more complete and stable back for the long haul.
AJ Klein- ILB Iowa State
Best ILB on the board.
Rodney Smith; WR-FSU
Tall receiver to replace Burris, may not run best routes, but coachable and solid pick this late.
Vince Williams-ILB FSU

Really wanted a TE, but this mock gives us some playmakers on both sides of the ball. Remember David Johnson was having a tremendous game in Phila before his injury, has something to prove. We need hungry and humble players (with talent), not self-promoting “stars.”

Hope we can move down, gain some picks (get one of the top 3 TEs; Ryan Griffin/Tulane, Sorenson S. Utah as developmental QB; Ray Graham).

Yeah, I cant remember if it was Gil Brandt or Charlie Casserly that stated the 4 pillars that I mentioned. Cowherd just needs to add "defend the passer" with a CB and its complete.

As much as I think we need a late round OG, we have too many other holes to fill in the draft in those key areas.

The 4 pillars of an NFL team are 1.Franchise QB, (we have) 2. Elite pass rusher (we dont have) 3. Blindside protector (we may have a good LT on the team already) 4. Elite CB (Ike is really getting old). I'd rather see us focus on a CB, so we dont have to rely on Cortez Allen being our best CB in 2 years.
well if we kept keenan lewis we wouldn't have to worry about a cb right away but that's pittburgh keep foote fuck lewis way to go steelers
