With my final of four picks in the GGN Mock Draft, I decided to shore up the cornerback position for the Patriots. House fits the bill (pun intended) of a Belickeck drafted corner in that he has ton's of starting experience at New Mexico State. He's a big physical corner, who is best when he is pressing the receiver he's covering.
He might not be the best pick if we're looking for a nickleback behind Mccourty and Bodden. But I could see House becoming a very solid starter along side Mccourty after Bodden's time is up.
I sort of got the sense that the offensive lineman I'd like to take at this spot would be off the board (Watkins, Rackley and Hudson) which is why I chose Ijalana earlier for his versatility. I didn't love any of the o-line options at this point, so i went in another direction.
My Patriots mock has gone as follows:
17th Overall Selection: Aldon Smith OLB/Missouri
28th Overall Selection: J.J. Watt DE/Wisconsin
33rd Overall Selection: Ben Ijalana G-T/Villanova
60th Overall Selection: Davon House CB/New Mexico State
I'm going to go ahead and attach a poll so you can give me a draft grade. Thanks for letting me participate in your sites mock, and I look forward to the real thing next week.
