Hi Folks. Many of us love to do mock drafts. I think the reason is really simple: We think we are better than Mike Tannebaum (and I agree!), and you are throwing out the names of prospects that you feel have potential to be stars.
I would like this thread to be about you putting 25 names down of players who you would personally interview. Try to have good balance of day 1, 2, and 3 prospects.
Remember, this list is of prospects who intrigue you. Realistically if you interviewed someone and didn't come away impressed, you wouldn't draft them. Try to make that distinction between want us to draft, and would like to get to know more about.
My 25 would be like this:
Geno Smith - QB. I think he will fall before Aprils draft. If he fell to 9, I would want to make sure he could fit into our offense.
Landry Jones - QB Yup. Want to see which of the next 3 would I draft, and when I would be willing to take one of them.
EJ Manuel - QB
Zac Dysert - QB
Zach Line - RB. I would like to know where he seems himself starting. I am quite sure he can immediately contribute on special teams.
Ray Graham - RB
Johnathan Franklin - RB
Rex Burkhead - RB
Washaun Ealey - RB
Marcus Wheaton - WR
Aaron Dobson - WR
Tyler Eifert - TE. I personally think it would be a travesty if we missed out on Eifert or Ertz
Zach Ertz - TE
Alex Hurst - T
Kyle Long - T
Hugh Thornton - G
Montori Hughes - NT
Jarvis Jones - OLB
Sam Montgomery - OLB
Chase Thomas - OLB
A.J. Klein - ILB
Manti Te'o - ILB, Will easily be available when we pick. I'd like to know the story.
Robert Alford - CB
JJ Wilcox - S - Small school guy who believes playing RB and WR have prepared him for safety. Can he really read an offense and know his defensive responsibilities?
Kenny Vaccaro - S - Arguably the top safety and a big position of need.
