I'm curious why you drafted two TE?

What is the plan with Heller, Grew and Scheffler?

I would want more from Baltimore to drop that far, and they usually trade back, not up.

That being said, I like the draft. I hate signing Reggie Bush, especially for that much.

2nd time I have seen someone drafting John Simon to replace Avril and it irks me. Simon is far more a KVB type DE than an Avril DE.

I'd love to field two young KVBs, if we could find them.

And by replace, I merely meant that he'd try to replace him in the starting line-up. Never said their games were the same.

Honestly, this might be my favorite mock that I have seen posted this season. My only gripe is that if we trade down that far (which I'm fine with) we will/better get next years first as well. Swap this years first and they give us their 2nd and next years first.

My opinion has dropped a little as of recently with Reid. I like him but if we were at 25 and he was on the board I would still have to give some thought to Elam. I love the Eifert pick. Scheffler isn't getting any younger and Eifert is going to be dynamic. Finally, Rhodes is for sure my favorite corner in the draft.

I really like the draft. The TE pick is ballsy but I like it and think he'd be a dynamic playmaker and could fill a few voids. TE woes and the need to rush and find another WR esp if you kept Nate at a reduced rate.

I personally really like the Bush signing. You may get him a lil' cheaper, but that's not really the point as long as he's not more/super expensive. He gives us that "Best" scat back speedy RB that I think makes our Off far more unpredictable. He also has showed not only the ability to run inside this year, but a willingness to do so as well. He'd be a perfect compliment to what Leshoure as shown he's able to do. I think Reggie has the same skill set as Bell and better speed and athleticsism. The Bell situation has done us well. I think it can only get better.
