1.01 - Chance Warmack, OG - Alabama. It goes without saying that this is a bad year for the Chiefs to be at #1. The spot normally dictates taking one of a QB, DE, or LT. But there's no QB worthy of the #1, they've already got a LT, and they run the 3-4. So...what to do? If they take Joeckel, they have to move Albert to guard, which he's adamantly stated he does not want to do. So isn't the net result the same if they take Warmack...except that they haven't pissed off one of their only good players. Plus, they've taken what many, many scouts consider the best player available in the draft. Add into that the idea that the rookie wage scale makes this a much less bitter pill to swallow, I think that the Chiefs should...and will...take:
1.02 Jacksonville Jaguars select- Barkevious Mingo de/olb LSU I'm pretty sure they are going to take a De/olb just not sure which one. I think with Jarvis Jones spine/neck they will stay away from him and select Mingo. (This pick has received criticism, not the position, but the player as most view it as a reach).
1.03 Shariff Floyd DT - Forida The Raiders have needs at many positions including DT, OL, DE, CB being the most glaring. With Seymour being a free agent and Tommy Kelly likely being a cap casualty DT is the most glaring need. I gave serious consideration of taking one of the top tackles to replace Khalif "false start" Barnes. Also considered: Joeckel, Fisher, Werner and Domontre Moore.
2.02 Matt Barkley QB- Trojans Even if the Chiefs acquire Alex Smith, Barkley is much more of a long term solution. I think he's been unfairly lumped in with other USC QBs and his last season was the aberration and his 2011 campaign is the true one. Should fit well with Reid's WCO style.
I've received the following trade offer:
give picks #28 and #60 for #17 and a conditional 4th rounder. I've responded that I'm interested, but will wait until that pick to see who is available.
Take Xavier Rhodes.
Thoughts on trading 28 and our fourth (128) for 37th and 83rd?
Pick that WR from West Virginia if he is there.
If Sheldon Richardson is there at 17, do I trade up get him? Or is there somebody else I should trade up there, or stand pat.
I bet Rhodes runs in the 4.4's. Plenty fast.
Why did Tampa take another WLB when they just drafted David last year? Planning to put Khaseem in the middle? Uh...
Get ready for us to trade picks and pick up more in the second round
Ok, so I know most people will think this is a reach, and most Bucs fans won't like the pick. So I just wanted to come back and give my thought process.
First of all, I expect the Bucs to be big players in free agency again. Tampa should have around $40 million in cap room when free agency starts. I expect them to address most of their needs in free agency, and then go BPA in the draft. Specifically, I expect the Bucs will sign 2 free agent CBs and a TE (at a minimum).
So Greene is the best player available at 13? Maybe not for most teams, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Bucs are that high on him. I think Greene's stock is going to soar as the draft gets closer. Whether it's to the Bucs or someone else, Greene will be a first round pick. Greene will shine during the interview process. Ask any of his teammates or coaches about Greene, and the first thing they will say is "Leader". Greg Schiano showed last year that he wants a certain type of player. Khaseem Green epitomizes the kind of player the Bucs are looking for. Schiano knows Green better than anyone, and will make sure he gets his guy.
I've read somewhere else that the Bucs wouldn't take Greene because the Strong Side LB only plays 50% of the plays. Whether Greene is the MLB or SLB, he'd stay on the field every down, while Mason Foster leaves the field on 3rd. Greene can even play FS on 3rd down if needed. Greene has only played LB for 2 years, and his tape is outstanding. He has the potential to be a special player.
So basically because Schiano was his college coach. I like Greene, but that is an abortion of a pick. Kid ****ed up.
Should I send a fourth, or fifth if possible, to move up and take Fluker at 22?
Trade: #22 overall and the Rams 4th round pick to Chicago
#20 overall pick to the Rams
#20 overall pick St. Louis selects Keenan Allen WR Cal
Sam Bradford needs help or at least that's always been the excuse. Brian Quick and Chris Givens were drafted last year to go with Amendola, but none of them have the well rounded game of Keenan Allen. Allen will come in right away and be WR1 in that offense. Allen/Quick on the outside, Givens going deep, Amendola in the slot. Also made this pick with as insurance if Danny Amendola doesn't return. Rumors have it he wants a big time deal, not sure he's worth it. Jeff Fisher also took a big athletic WR in Tennessee in Kenny Britt as well.
Thinking about trading up and taking D.J. Fluker. Him and Franklin on the right side would be beastly.
Fluker didn't have a good combine IMO, but he has good tape. Sheldon Richardson is overrrated if you ask me. Tavon Austin, the WR from West Virginia would be nice, but there are other speedy guys in this draft class you could maybe get later, just don't have as good of hands (Swope & Denard Robinson).
Sheldon Richardson was just taken, and I'm not trading up for Tavon Austin. I might take him at 28, but not going to trade up for him.
Looks like I'll have to give up my third to move up to 21/22, so it's not going to happen. Third rounder is too valuable. If he is still sitting there at 25, I'll do it, but no way he makes it past both Cincy/Chicago.
Fluker didn't participate in the combine.
how come this mock draft takes longer than the real one??
