Obviously, all this will change after March 12th but here is what I think:
Round 1: Damontre Moore - DE/OLB - 6'4'' 250 - Texas A&M
A DE/OLB type hybrid player that our defense desperately needs, I just can't justify reaching for a QB at 8 (No scouting sites have a QB rated in the top 10 prospects) and leaving value/talent on the board. Bills honestly will need to get lucky here, with Mingo's work ethic under extreme scrutiny and Georgia's Jarvis Jones having the same back issue that ended San Diago's Marcus McNeill's career at 28 years old, I honestly think a trade down is very likely.
Round 2: Ryan Nassib - QB - 6'2'' 227 - Cuse
I think Nassib is a legitimate 2nd round QB, who could be a late first round draft pick by a team that falls in love with his arm and leadership. I take Nassib over 2nd round QB's like Wilson and Manual for a few important reasons; he knows the system and has the physical tools with decent accuracy.
Round 3: Tavarres King - WR - 6'0'' 190 - Georgia
Needs to bulk up, but had himself a strong senior bowl and is known as a down field threat who is a good route runner, generally good hands, but great at beating press coverage.
Round 4: Tyrann Mathieu - CB - 5'9'' 190
We all know he's got the physical tools to be a Windfield-type CB in the NFL, combined with Pettine could be a beautiful thing. The drug concerns are an obvious red flag, but he's shown maturity with the situation and has gone through counseling and rehab. "I know what it's like to be humiliated," Mathieu said. "To go back down that road? Not a chance in my lifetime." I say we give this kid a chance.
Round 5: Lerentee McCray - OLB - 6'2'' 250 - Florida
Considered a "project" with "considerable upside" he could help provide dept at ILB/OLB and SP-Teams.
Round 6: Shamarko Thomas S/CB - 5'9'' 213 - Syracuse
With 4.3 speed and aggressive tenacity, I'd love to see him become a force on our SP-Team unit and back up the SS position. I wonder if he has the "hips" to move to CB in the NFL? Sounds like this kid is a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd round pick if he was 3, 2, or 1 inch taller.
There you go, still lots of holes left open on the team but hopefully a strong FA class will force me to redo my mock a few times.
I really like my 4th and 6th round selections, how do you guys feel about it?
