Half way through the 2012 season, time to make a mock. Hopefully we will have the last pick, but this draft assumes we will have a late round pick regardless.

Free agency:

Mike Jenkins - DB

Jenkins is 27 years old and we will give us a solid/proven DB in the backfield. Our three corners (robinson /samuel / grimes) are all over 30.

Round 1: Michael Buchanan - DE - Illinois

Playmaker with a frame to put on muscle /weight. Looks a raw talent like aldon smith that has the ability to get to the ball quick.

Round 2: Le'Veon Bell - RB - Mich St

Turner's done, here's his replacement. 6'1, 240.

Round 3: Jake Stoneburner - TE - Ohio State

Complete TE that has good size at 6'5, 245.

Round 4: Xavier Nixon - OG - Florida

Reynolds and Baker's contract is up and Mclure's due to retire. OL depth.

Round 4 (comp from Lofton): Abry Jones - DT - GA

Round 5: Micah Hyde - DB - Iowa

Round 6: Will Compton - LB - Nebraska

Round 7: to philly in Samuel trade

THis draft isn't bad at all. Not sexy but def not bad. I don't like the FA Mike Jenkins tho. He is bad. I wouldn't even want him as a nickel. I think LB may be a Free Agent option as well as Tight End. If TG isn't coming back, then we can go TE or even OG in Free Agency.

Are you trying to give us the jail squad?

Michael Buchanan was arrested for suspicion of drinking and driving at age 19.

Stoneburner was arrested by police on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing official business his sophomore year IIRC.

Hyde was arrested for public intoxication a year or so ago.

Not Falcons type of dudes.

I like some of the positions he listed for sure we need. But i agree on the jail thing it's a very uncharacteristic draft for TD to do.

Would keep the same positions where drafted but change the people.

Pretty good draft outside of the character concerns. I don't like the Mike Jenkins signing though, apart from him being pretty average, since all our corners are going to be 30+ I think we should aim at getting younger through the draft. Samuel, Robinson, and Grimes (if he returns) all have a few years left in the tank.

Stoneburner is going too high. He is a great pass catching TE but he cannot block whatsoever. He has no blocking responsibilities here at Ohio State, he is a pure receiver in our offense. The misdemeanor charge he got this year was because he peed on a building in his neighborhood, complete BS if you ask me. Despite that I would rather have Eifert or Fauria from UCLA. He would be a great late round project pick though

After 5 years of drafting 'high quality character guys', at what point is it time to take a chance on a guy that has a issue here or there. Our locker room is solid and could embrace a guy that has made a mistake in his life.

I feel our needs our DB, DE, RB, TE, and so on..... that is where this draft was coming from.

I don't think we break this trend. Whether we should in certain situations or not is debatable, but I do no think we break that trend under TD.
