My problem doing this mock is the fact I have no trades.....I think there will be alot of trades in the bottom third of this draft for QB's.....I just don't see Locker,Mallett or Ponder going from 10-20, but I do think there will be teams like Washington, Cincy and Buffalo trading back into the lastpartof the 1st round. I just think the players they draft early are too good to pass up to reach for one of these guys early
Smith to the Redskins is when I got lost...they just went OT last year...Williams played very well too...I also don't think the Pats would grab Houston with their first pick...not their type of player...Reed just isn't versatile or even straight up good enough to be a first round pick for Rex Ryan's D.
Dont see Cam Jordan as a great fit for Minny, They just gave Robinson 5 mill a year to play opposite Allen, In an uncapped year they would just keep Edwards and have a great three headed monster at DE and save the pick. I think Prince
would be the pick with Winfield being about 32yo
Where do you see Bowers playing in Dallas's 3-4
Still don't see miami taking a player at a position of strength, while needing a QB and interior oline help. not picking again till #77 means the oline or qb needs to be addressed in the first. Definetely a team that will trade down unless in love with Mallet.
Houston fits the need but is very high, I think they decide to say by to light and get a LT, with the way you have the board falling.
This is the worse case scenario for the Jets in my view, but if the board fell this way I would take Marvin Austin.
He's not the ideal size and I wish he were taller, but as a wise man in this forum has pointed out, we're picking 30th and not 3rd, so you can't have everything.
Definitely the worst case scenario, but if this happens, you have to think that the phones are lighting up with trade offers. Even though not a single (second tier) QB has gone off the board, you have to think that Locker, Mallett, Dalton, Ponder, Colin P., etc. may very well be gone by pick #40. For an extra 3rd rounder (and potentially other picks), a team like the 49ers (or Titans) can have the pick of the crop of their future QBs. Even a team like the Bills would consider trading up in order to get their pick of the litter.
Even if its not the best deal in the world, several of the guys we are choosing from at #30 (in this scenario) will still be around 10 picks later - especially considering 5 of those guys will be QBs.
Thanks fellas....It sucks doing a mock this year because there will be some major wheeling and dealing
i dont think there will be as many trades as people are predicting
they can't trade players
they can't trade future draft picks
so what exactly are they gonna offer these teams to move up?
I also agree that this is a worst case scenario for the Jets but this Brooks Reed hate has to stop. The dude is a good player who did very well at the Senior Bowl. It's not like he's a no-namer being drafted purely on haircut.
I think you'll see alot of 2nd and 3rds to move up to late 1st
Perfect scenario for Jets
+1. Even if there are several tier 2 QBs available, it makes sense for a team to move up to get "their guy". If Locker goes in the teens or early 20s, and the next wave starts going off the board at 25 or so, someone wants to move up to #30. Be it Buffalo, Cincy, TN, SF, Minny, etc.
