This is the draft that I made, I couldn't find a place to trade so I am not sure I would have drafted all of these players but with the players available, I like this draft.
8 QB BLAKE BORTLES CENTRAL FLORIDA
40 S HA’SEAN CLINTON-DIX ALABAMA
72 CB KYLE FULLER VIRGINIA TECH
96 DT EGO FERGUSON LSU
104 RB LACHE SEASTRUNK BAYLOR
136 QB AARON MURRAY GEORGIA
168 WR MIKE DAVIS TEXAS
200 OLB DEVON KENNARD USC
I tried a few, but I can't get over the fact that the first trade of the draft will screw all of this up. One team ahead of us that we expect to take a WR trades the spot away to a QB/DEF needy team (or multiple trades), and all of the first and maybe second rounds are screwed up.
Here is my latest after waiting until the combine...
Blake Bortles QB UCF
Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix S Ala
Bradley Roby CB OSU
Dakota Dozier G Fur
Ed Stinson DE Ala
James White RB Wis
Dede Lattimore ILB USF
Connor Shaw QB SC
I like the mock drafts, even for fantasy ones, because it gives you the reality that players will drop.
Fun site to play around with.
After one of my drafts, I looked at the NFCN teams and Sammy Watkins ended up on the Lions.
That is scary! I almost want to take the guy with our 8th pick.
Peterson was. The Vikings had Chester Taylor but would have been foolish to pass on AD.
Spielman may want to trade down instead, but I wouldn't unless some team gives up an outrageous bounty of picks.
If we are flexible, we can definitely get an immediate contributor at the 8th spot.
Mosely, Mack, Watkins, Manziel (dropped in many mocks) if we needed a tackle, we could grab Robinson or Matthews might drop also. At the 8th spot, I wish we needed a tackle because there will be a good one. There were 2 other tackles that moved up with their combine performance. But we don't need need a tackle. Kalil could be moved to the opposite side. I would be difficult for us to admit that Kalil isn't as good a lineman as the spot we drafted him in.
Dennard would be another possibility, bit of a reach.
Im going to give you my mock with the scenerio of them trading back to 12 or 13 while acquiring their 2nd and 5th...
1st - CB Justin Gilbert
2nd - OLB Ryan Shazier
2nd - G Xavier Su'a-Filo
3rd - S Craig Loston
3rd - MLB Chris Borland
4th - QB Zach Mettenberger
5th - DT Daniel McCullers
5th - CB Bashaud Breeland
6th - RB Dri Archer
7th - DE Deandre Coleman
Of course there will be players rising and falling but I would love if this was the way it played out. Remember the key positions addressed in FA. CB VERNER, DE JOHNSON, DT JOSEPH AND POSSIBLYA GUY LIKE EDELMAN OR SMALL NAME WR TO HELP IN THE PASSING GAME
