Round 1: Eric Ficsher, OT Central Michigan
If hes there, then we need to get him, especially since Gosder left AND Backus retired. Have him start at LT and Reiff at RT.
Round 2: Alex Okafor, DE Texas
Immediate Replacement for Avril
Round 3: Travis Frederick, C/G Wisconsin
His stock feel a little, but can immediately step in at center to replace Dom at center
Round 4: (Projected Compensatory): Alvin Bailey, G Arkansas
Talente bruiser who can come in and compete for the starting RG spot
Round 5: Denard Robinson, RB/WR Michigan
We can line him up at receiver or running back. We could also try him out for returning kicks and punts. There will always be a role for him to thrive in with a little development. He seemed to be a better prospect at RB rather than WR based on the results of his pro day.
Round 6: David Bass, DE Missouri Western State
Developmental guy who did extremely well against Division 2 talent.
Possibly the DE version of Sammie Lee Hill?
Round 7: Brad Wing, P LSU
We need a better punter and Wing can be that guy for years to come.
Round 7 (Projected Compensatory): Onterio McCalebb, RB/WR/KR/PR Auburn
Speedster on our radar after the combine and his pro day. a little small, but could use him at returner and maybe 10 snaps on offense
The way this mock plays out, we get our oline completely revamped, while also picking up a day one starter at DE (Okafor) and get plenty of depth at receiver/running back with speed (denard, mccalebb)
Heres what im hoping the starting lineups will be by the end of the draft:
WR-Megatron, Burleson, Broyles, Robinson
LT-Fischer LG-Sims C-Frederick RG-Bailey RT-Reiff
S- Quin and Delmas
CB-Houston, Jonte (placeholder for now)
OLB- Tair (placeholder for now) , Levy
DE- Okafor, Jones DT- Suh and Fairley
To me, the oline is instantly upgraded in all facets, skill positions on offense have speed and depth, and get a starting DE that is much needed.
Let me know what you guys think
