    The Mock that might please me most.

    FA:

    No further pre-draft moves

    Draft:

    1: Terrence Cody - Plays DE in place of Douglas in a rotation with DeVito.

    2: Corey Wootton - Rotates with Ellis, eventually replaces Ellis.

    4: Greg Hardy - Want a natural pass rusher? Here's the draft possible best.

    5: Joshua Moore - Athletic CB who can actually defend the pass.

    6: Blair White - Slot.

    7: Zoltan Mesko - The Sultan of Punt.

    Wouldn't Cody be in a rotation with Jenks?

    This mock pleases me.
    1. I can't see how Cody can past San Diego
    2. Wooten has a knee problem, does anyone Have a status ? Can you imagine starting DE's of Wooten at 6'7 and Pituatoua at 6'8
    4. I can see Hardy , slipping to the bottem of the fourth, patiance could yield the steal of this years draft , stick him on IR for 2010 if you have to...
    5. Moore should have stayed in school, true developmental pick, with a huge upside.
    6. Blair White , nice size, see him outside rather than the slot
    7. Mesko would make Westoff a happy man. Consider flopping White & Mesko
    .
    In my mind Wooten & Potty are the same player, I am looking to go for immediate need with that second round pick. How about CB Murphy or Ghee at 61 to play nickel , or Burnett at Safety. Kindly keep Moore in the fifth
    ( very tired of Drew Coleman getting toasted). Great Draft

    Love the draft, but isn't White in the 6th a little low? I thought he was a late 2 (best case) - early 5th (worst case) ranked player? U think he is there in the 6th?

    Wootton is one of my favorite players so i like the draft.

    plus you gotta love bringing jersey boys back home especially one from rutherford in your own back yard.

    this draft will fix our front 7 for years.

    i like that hardy is dropping like a stone. better for us in the 4th.

    Wootton's a way better pass rusher than Pito.

    If not Blair White in the 6th, then Shay Hodge.

    I'd be OK with that.

    Just a thought, wouldn't Jenkins make a better DE than Cody, who is probably not athletic/quick enough to provide any passrush?

    Damn... can't say i like this at all. I'm ok with Cody if thats the way it works out, but Wootton and Hardy? No way jose. Hardy as a 4th possibly, but Wootton? I want nothing to do with him. He's tapped out and doesn't have the blood lust.

    Doesn't really matter when you think about it. Either way it works...the bigger key is that there's two very massive men on our DL when they're in together.

    Random thought, but I'm not convinced Wootton could play 3-4 DE.

    At best, he's probably only 10 pounds too light. In reality, probably more like 15-20 (I'm no expert, but I don't see a ton of room in his frame to add that either). Especially when you consider his 270 is spread over a 6'6" frame. Just physically looking at him, the guy looks like a big linebacker or a 4-3 DE, not someone who can play on a 3-4 Line.

    For my money, I'd rather have an Alex Carrington or a Arthur Jones.

    I suppose you're right.

    Jenks will be the guy getting into the backfield, regardless of where he's lined up. But I think I'd rather Cody plugging the A-gap.

    I think Wootton's alot like Chris Canty as a prospect, even going down to the knee injuries. Canty was around 270 or so in college. He was 279 during his draft offseason.

    Carrington could definitely work. I like Wootton's pass rushing ability better.

    I like everything but the picks in round 2 and round 4. If we go Cody than I don't think we need another D-lineman that early. And Hardy has turd written all over him. Not a fan. And that late WR selection is probably wishful thinking.

    Yeah, Canty had 9 pounds on Wootton to begin with when he came out of school.

    Nevermind, just because Canty did it doesn't mean that Wootton can. I'm always skeptical about a player adding mass once he joins the NFL. I mean, he'll be 23 next year, how many people add substantial muscle mass/growth at that age?

    If given the choice, I'd rather have the player who I know is the right size rather then the one who might become that in a couple years (And in the meantime, he'll probably be worthless because he'll be too undersized).

    Cody can't play DE and neither can Wooten (in 3-4).

    In the 21st century NFL? On a 6'6 frame? Alot of guys.

    I also don't think he'd be useless per se...just not exactly a 3-4 end yet. I'm looking for him to weigh in around 285 during his best years, and I'm counting on having Cody on the line allowing for a smaller DE to play up. He'd be replacing Ellis as the starting 3-4 DE that can rush the passer. He fits the mold...so does Carrington, who admittedly is more pro ready. Carrington is the Dan Williams to Wootton's Cody.

    yes, if Cody and Gholston start hanging out and Gholston picks up some of Cody's eating habits... maybe Gholston puts on 20-30 lbs and can play D-End in our 3-4. That is about the only way Gholston will ever contribute. He needs to be a strength player with limited responsibilities in order to ever be good at the NFL level. He just doesn't have the instincts or intensity to ever be a great football player, but if you line him up in the middle somewhere, and just let him try to hold or shoot a gap, he might be worth something.

    ^^ Yea, no. I'd rather Cody take on Gholston's diet.

    Also, yes, two big bodies on the DL would open up our LBs more.

    Just wanted to kick this one around here:

    Our first, 5th, and Leon for Marshall and Denver's 3rd.

    2nd: Corey Wootton
    3rd: Dominique Franks
    4th: Greg Hardy
    6th: Vince Oghobaase
    7th: Rashawn Jackson

    5: Vince Oghobaase
    6: Shay Hodge
    7: Zoltan Mesko
