With the 15th overall pick, the Philadelphia Eagles select......


....Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State



Queue the Jokes....

Fletcher Cox is highly rated on the Eagles board. He's a perfect fit for the UT position of our defense and will see a lot of snaps, rotating with Cullen Jenkins.

With the #18th pick in the 2012 FFMD NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers select...



Nick Perry, Outside Linebacker, Southern Cal

The LBC wrote:
One of the more polarizing prospects and one to be considered, no doubt, a steal in some circles while a notable reach in others, this is a Chargers roster in need of playmakers on the defensive side of the ball. And in order to acquire play-makers outside of the Top 10 picks, this typically means you need to pray for incredible value to fall into your lap or go out on a limb and reach for a guy you believe in who may not be as pro-polished as one might prefer.

Is Nick Perry another Clay Matthews? No. Right up front I'll recognize that. But is he another Everson Griffen or Frostee Rucker? Not hardly. In fact, the comparisons between Perry and Griffen really shouldn't go much further than the program they played for and the position they played. Griffen was renown for his ability to excel in run-defense but his lack of get-off at the snap and underdevelopment as a pass-rusher. Perry is rather the opposite - in need of refinement in his pass-rush moves certainly, but far superior as a rusher than a run-defender and with one of the better pure bursts (if not the best) of any of the edge-rusher in this class.

The Chargers present a unique situation as well where one could contend that a slight (5 pick) reach for Perry was admissible as the Bolts' new LB coach, Joe Barry, was previously Perry's LB coach at USC - thus already having a working relationship and glowing opinion of the player. While free agent Jarrett Johnson was brought in and will likely be the penciled-in starter at SOLB, the organization views this as a situation similar to what was accomplished by San Francisco in the 2011 draft with Aldon Smith - taking the more/most athletically-gifted pass-rusher and asking him to grow in the system and contribute as primarily strictly a pass-rusher specialist as a rookie while honing his craft.

With Peyton Manning now in the division, not to mention a conference through which the path to the Super Bowl is perennially accepted to run through Tom Brady and the Patriots, something had to be done to address both the Chargers lack of consistent pass-rush outside of one player (Antwan Barnes in '11 and Shaun Phillips in '10, both of whom hit free agency in 2013), but also to elevate one of the worst 3rd-down defenses in the league from 2011. The added bonus to Mr. Perry is his ability to function as a hand-in-the-dirt DE, as with the league becoming more pass-happy, strong nickel and dime packages are becoming more and more necessary for teams.

With the 19th Overall Pick…The Chicago Bears Select…



CB…Dre Kirkpatrick…Alabama…

The Bears are thrilled other teams passed on Kirkpatrick…he is the highest rated player on our board and fills a major need as our #2 CB…in a division that features some of the best QB/WR combos in the NFL we have to improve our pass D…Kirkpatrick brings the size and physicality we covet in our CBs and reminds us a lot of Charles Tillman who has been a stalwart of our D for many years…welcome to Chicago Dre.

With the 21st selection in the 2012 Football's Future Mock Draft V2.0, the Cincinnati Bengals select...




...MARK BARRON - SS - ALABAMA



Despite the presence of a former second round selection in Taylor Mays, the Bengals ultimately upgrade their weakest defensive position with the top Safety available, who happens to also be one of the top players still available.

Chris Crocker's release, in real life, speaks volumes to the Bengals commitment to upgrade the SS position. Although some Bengals' fans feel Mays is the answer, he busted out of one starting gig in San Francisco and has shown little on the field that would convince the Bengals' brass he's the answer. Plus, his college play dictates Mays belong at FS, which is currently manned by a former first round pick in Reggie Nelson. With three first round talents at SS and FS, the Bengals should be able to find some combination of the three that utilizies each of their abilties. Can't forget the Bengals' 5th round selection in 2011, Robert Sands, who shows a ton of promise at S.

The Bengals are now loaded with talent in the defensive backfield, with six former first round picks in total. Combine that with a young defensive line and a talented LB core, and the Bengals have built one of the more talented defenses in the NFL. If everything goes well, the Bengals should have one of the most athletic, productive defenses in the NFL in 2012.

1.24 Pittsburgh Steelers select Stephon Gilmore, FS/CB



Gilmore's raw physical ability is far too much for Carnell Lake and - LeBeau to pass on here. Maybe he ends up being a good CB, but he has the makings of an absolutely dominant Steelers free safety. His size, speed, willingness to tackle, and athletic ability makes him an ideal convert in a very weak safety class. Carnell Lake make the transition from LB to Pro Bowl safety to Pro Bowl Cornerback, and he managed to teach Willie Gay how not to suck. If he can do that, he can convert Stephon Gilmore into a Steelers' defensive back.

Mike Tomlin loves to go by the "best available athlete" mantra, with the idea that he and his staff will coach the player up. It seems to be working fairly well for him, why switch now?

With the 29th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, The Baltimore Ravens select...



diamondbull424 wrote:
SEC
Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
6'2 ⅞”, 216 lbs, Game Speed: 4.5, Hand Size: 10 1/4”
2011 Stats: 13 GS/13 GP
Career Stats: n/a


Strengths
- Incredible Strength.
- Deceptively long strides to eat up cushion.
- Amazing hands for the highlight reception.
- Redzone threat with nice size, strength, and vertical ability for the jump ball.
- Solid blocker.
- Familiar with a prostyle route tree.
- Vertical threat at the collegiate level, should project well to the Ravens vertical passing attack.
- A bull to bring down in the open field.

Weaknesses
- Weight/Work ethic concerns.
- Rounds out routes, needs refinement.

Grade: A = (4.0 pts)
After watching tape, and more tape on Alshon Jeffery I've come to the conclusion that he's the exact time up WR specimen that the Ravens need in their offensive attack. Last year at this time Ravens fans were clamoring that we had two needs at WR: 1) A deep threat and 2) A redzone threat. Torrey Smith had an unbelievable year and performed at an amazing level to solve the former issue, however the Baltimore Ravens still had a lot of trouble capitalizing once in the redzone in 2011. Our efficiency stats in that department can be much improved. Enter: Alshon Jeffery.

Immediately coming from college he offers an unbelievable presence in this area. With more training and focus on his route running skills he should offer more and more of an impact with our team as an outside receiver and allow us to push Boldin inside to the slot where he would dominate. By playoff time, we'd be looking for our passing attack to be looking to hit its stride. Jeffery fits the Air Coryell vertical passing attack that Cam Cameron implores to a "T" and therefore is the perfect selection for us to make as BPA. We have the situation to allow his talent to flourish without rushing him to produce and relying too heavily on him early on.



Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
