I don't think that Hopkins or Rambo are likely to be available where you have them going, but if they were, this would certainly be a solid offseason.

I do have a hard time seeing them extend Percy and sign one of the top three free agents, but it all depends on what Jennings asks for.

That team us eat better than the current team. If it all fell that way it would be great.

Big fans of Ogletree and Hopkins though I don't see Hopkins lasting that long. Unless someone like Hopkins does fall to us, if we were to sign Jennings and Barden I'd rather go after a late round WR as it would be set for the next 2-4 years.

PB, you still have not explained your fascination with Drew Stanton. Are you related to him? Because that's the only possible way anyone could consider him to be an upgraded backup for Ponder. He's a career 55% passer and has been sacked for as many yards as completions he has and thrown nearly twice as many INTs as TDs. He's a bum.

Plus, he wouldn't be coming from Detroit. He was Andrew Luck's backup this season.

Anyway, overall, I'm not that impressed with this mock. I like Ogletree, but I really have no interest in Jennings, because I don't think he helps all that much. Plus, as much as I dislike Henderson and Brinkley, they have to bring 1 of them back. They don't have the depth at the LB position to get by with losing them both. Furthermore, I have yet to hop on the Hopkins Hype train. Wink

I knew Rambo and Hopkins was gonnabe a push and I think Jennings wants to come here as him and Adrian are close friends hopefully he would come here for less than a monster contract.
And as for drew Stanton I just really like him I have seen him that much because he hasn't played that much but in the few games iveseen him play atdetroiti though the was great he's a pocket passer and his stats might not be great but he is good in the clutch IMO
Thanks for all the feedback guys

Hopkins won't be on the board that late, but I'd kill to land both Ogletree and Hopkins.

Ogletree is receiving a lot of flack for his bowl game performance, but he is still a surefire first round pick. To me he is an identical prospect to Lawrence Timmons coming into the league. Timmons had all the athleticism in the and production in the world but he really struggled fending off blockers. That problem is very correctable as evident in Timmons' production in the 3-4, a scheme predicated on shedding blocks.

Also, one of Erin or Jasper has to come back. There isn't enough depth to have both walk.
