Default Peter King's MOCK

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/-nf...r_a1&eref=sihp

Yet another mock that has Jarvis Jones at 17.

Vaccaro goes 16... which seems like a lock (I haven't seen a mock that doesn't have him going to the Rams).

I'm just happy that Matt Elam is still available in R2... and not a Raven. He's available; trade up, Colbert.

i don't think there's ANY way the Browns take Geno Smith.

I'd love to have Jones (if the Saints or Jets don't take him first) - but i'd REALLY rather have Vaccaro. I think he's a sure long-term star in this league. But i think you're right - almost everyone has the Rams taking him right before us.

Selecting Jarvis Jones is going to set this team back. Jarvis is overrated, overhyped. While he is an ok football player, he is nowhere near worth picking in the 1st rd.

I hope some team makes a mistake and selects him before the 17th pick.

I think the Rams may reach for a receiver with their first pick. I think we get Jones. I just hope it works out. I have reservations.

The Rams have another pick in round 1 at #22. If I had to pick one almost sure thing in this draft, it would be that the Rams are going to take a safety and wide receiver with those two picks. They might take the wide receiver first. Just depends on how the draft goes before #16.

I wish I had more of an idea who the Steelers are going to take in the first round, like I do the Rams.

what are you basing it on that he is overrated and over hyped, i've seen you say it multiple times but without much to back it up.

I don think you win SEC Defensive player of the year, have over 20 career sacks and 40 tackles for a loss, if your just an okay football player in the sec

but hey if thats overrated, i wish i was overrated

What about this STAR LOTULELEI (NT)? From the looks of him he could be the next H. Ngata. Our NT position is questionable at best, Hampton is old, McClendon is not proven and the fugitive might not even make the roster after traning camp. There are other of good OLB later in the draft, any good 34 has a great NT.

I've seen almost every game Jarvis has played in and I can tell you, he is in the most productive position in their team's defensive scheme for putting up numbers (such as sacks). But, what he relies on in college (the system and his athleticism) will not make up for his lack of skills/techniques and struggles in open space. The fact that he hasn't developed his areas of weakness during his time in playing, doesn't bode well for his development in the pros. He will become the Ziggy Hood of our LB corp.

Add onto that his poor 40 time and medical issues...and Jarvis Jones is a trap for any team drafting him in the first round.

He doesn't have any medical issues. And tell Terrell Suggs, Vontaze Burfict, Brandon Spikes, etc. how poor 40s worked out for them. Who cares how fast you run 40 yards out of a sprinter's stance if you show up on gameday and dominate?
