Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.
He who just traded almost all of his remaining picks is correct. DENVERDUI55 is on the clock

Wow! Busy night. Some of my favorites went in that little group. I don't know about Gavin as an all around TE, but he has great hands. He would be a good pick for the Rams, but I had to go with Dallas Thomas. I was hoping I might get lucky in the fourth, but no...

Thanks....have to give phibacka31 equal credit, as we are co-GMs.

Gavin Escobar is a player who we've been targeting since the start of the draft....we kept our fingers crossed hoping he would be there for us in the 3rd round.

I was a hair away from taking him at the top of the third.

You're forgetting Comp picks, which should net me another 3rd and 5th or so. (If we're still doing them.)

The Titans need starters and impact players, so I moved up to make sure I got one of the guys at the top of my board.

So far their are 6 or 7 left that I would be happy with.

Yeah... Collins is one of those guys who has amazing measurables + amazing production.... not sure why he's not ranked higher by the "draft gurus", but I can easily see him going in the high 2nd round in the 2013 draft.

God, what a glorious 3rd round this year.... two high 3rd rounders is better than 1 first rounder, IMO.

This is a very good haul. Well done. The 3 guys you have in the middle there were all potential targets for the Bills.

I also want to throw this out there... I think SSJ and I make a SMASHING duo... and I would recommend using a CO-GM for anyone that loves this mock as much as I do

I love the Jonathan Cooper pick, I had him rated ahead of Warmack as my #1 guard. Both wide-outs were high on my list as well.

If the Dolphins draft went like you guys their offense would be interesting to watch develop, that's for sure.

You're not only a good looking bastard and accomplished writer, but you also have excellent taste in draftniks.

But will your love endure beyond the excitement of the draft?

It was nice that Miami had the picks and flexibility to allow us to acquire 3 3rd round picks in this draft.

This mock has solidified my hunch that it may not be a sexy draft in regards to Top 10 picks, but it's very solid and filled with a lot of talent in Rounds 2-4.

I think Rounds 2 and 3 are the strong points in this year's NFL Draft.

I also think that this draft has some nice and underrated QB prospects, despite it being looked at as a down year for QBs.

I look out there in our mock and see a handful of intriguing QB prospects that I'd love to see get a year or two of good coaching and then see what they can do on the next level.

I participate in 2 or 3 7 round mocks like this every year and it's a great way to broaden my overall vision of the draft, as it forces me to think outside of the realm of the Denver Broncos.

It's probably inevitable that the honeymoon excitement and feelings will wear off and we'll slowly fall back into our heterosexual lifestyles, but we'll always hold those few weeks of 2013 Orange Mane mock draft bliss as treasured memories.

Damnit! Collins got some huge press this last week. I was all over that kid a month ago, then Charles Davis puts him in the first round of his damn mock draft! Only true sleeper left in this draft IMHO.

Traveler you suck!

And yes, not getting picks the last 50 picks makes me pissed off!

Bmore Manning was surprised when I mentioned Jamie Collins about half a year ago. Lol. That kid was destined to be a stud. Is going to be a real terror for people off the edge. He is a VERY GOOD player. Thinking I shouldn't have traded down now lol.

Had to move to Plan B since I missed out on Terron Armstead.

Just in case you don't know, Traveler... this is a very good sign that you nailed your last pick, as Med is on a slightly higher plane then the rest of us "draftniks"....
