This post is not really a mock but more of a BPA list of players for all of our upcoming pick . Over the last few months i have gone through numerous scouting reports , watch hours of game tape and devised many different draft plans to help maximise the talent we could potentiality get this year . After this weekend we will have some new players on our team and will be better able to judge our chances going into a new season .
This is my final draft plan , the one that i think can bring us the most talent and value for the picks we have . I have included 2 trades in this plan , one with the Browns and the other with the Rams .
1st round pick 16
I don't see great value here at 16. I think Ingram , Couples , Richardson ,Reiff and Kuechly are all off the board so i trade back
Trade : Browns give us 22 and 67 for the 16th pick
1st round pick 22 . Players available
Mercilus , Perry , Branch , Adams , Glenn , Hightower . My pick : Mercilus.
I think any of thos players are good value at 22 and all of them should be available . I picked Mercilus because i think he has great pass rush ability and could flourish under Rex Ryan .
Trade : We give picks 47 and 77 to the Rams for picks 39 and 96
So good 1st round talent falls out of the 1st round so we trade back up .
2nd round pick 39 . Players available
Jeffery , Massie , Curry ,Jones, Lewis , Irvin. My pick : Jeffery
Another spot in the draft with great talent where any one of those guys could improve the team . I went with Jeffery because i think he will be a future star and fill a big need . But any of those guys would be a great pick .
3rd round pick 67 . Players available
Martin , Polk , Quick ,Wolfe, Saunders , Toon , My pick : Martin
I go with Martin here because he fills a big hole for the team . Polk would also be a great pick up at this spot
4th round pick 96
Turbin , Massaquai , Bequette, Kaddu , Datko , Potter . My pick : Turbin
I go with Turbin here because he is the plaayer here with the mose upside . Any of the 3 pass rushers would give us nice depth at that area but ground & pound wins out here .
Adcock , Robinson , Nix , Posey , Reynolds , Poole . My pick : Adcock
Adcock falls to us here and we gladly accept . He has massive versatility and a very good upside . He was a 2nd/3rd round pick earlier in the year so this is a steal .
Hardin , Guy jr , Kerse , Anger , Burris , Law , Miller My 3 picks : Hardin , Anger , Burris
We get a future starter in Hardin . He can be a great ST plaayer for us straight away and adds depth at the FS position behind Martin , Anger should easily win the starting job from T J and Burris adds nice depth to our to our OLB group
Leary , Williams , Bulluck , Edwards , Moye , My 3 picks : Leary, Williams, Edwards
Leary gives us good O-line depth along with Edwards . Williams is a guy who could take over from Bart Scott next year if he recovers well from his injury .
So there you have it folks . I tried to find value, fill needs , get us some starters and find guys with potential that adds depth to our team . Feel free to comment .
