Gotta give this a shot myself finally. Kind of a mix of a rehab center for both troubled or injured kids...

1 (31): TANK CARRADINE DE, Florida St.
Starting to see his stock rise and may not be a realistic pick come draft day at #31 but it's my draft so I get to eat all the cookies.

2 (34): TRADE. The Jets move up to #34 to jump both the Eagles and Cards to grab their next underwhelming "QB of the future".
SF sends" #34
Jets send: 2014 First round pick + 2013 4th (#106).

2b (61) Damontre Moore OLB, Texas A&M.
I had Jesse Williams initially going here but that's just way too obvious so history tells us it just won't happen. So conversely I looked for the reach pick but then realized, wait... that's now too obvious as well. Confused, I grabbed yet another beer and thought, think the unconventional of the unconventional. I know I know, what a stretch to think he'll be there at #61 but there's no question that his stock is dropping, and fast. Onebar has him now at #55 and Walt has him going #86 etc... We get a slip instead.

3a (74) D.J. Swearinger S, South Carolina.
Great value at a great need. Would not object if we threw in some of our later picks to ensure we grab him. Just too damn lazy to do it in this mock.

3b (93) Barrett Jones OL, Alabama.
Talk about versatility on the O-Line. Not at all happy with the thought of moving Boone around in case of 'gulp'... Another guy who's slipping due to an injury but a Swiss army knife on the o-line that can potentially open up a roster spot elsewhere.

4a (106) Tyrann Mathieu CB/ST, LSU.
I know he crapped the bed with his violations BUT talk about a steal if John Lucas worked his rehab magic and it sticks! Some might be thinking "another CB? Are you stupid?" Well, yes BUT I see him first as a Teddy Ginn kind of guy that could be an elite punt returner with the added element of actually being able to play your primary position if needed.

4b (128) Marcus Lattimore RB, South Carolina
No comments really needed here. Perfect for both us and Marcus.

4c (131) Kevin Reddick ILB, North Carolina
Bye Bye Mr. Grant, Hello Mr. Reddick. (Yea, getting a bit lazy)

5a (157) Mike Catapano DE, Prineton
Catapano's coach at Princeton Bob Surace compared him to NFL All Pro Justin Smith whom he coached while with the Cincinnati Bengals...enough said. Besides, with Alex Smith and his 40 wonderlic score brain now gone, we need an Ivy league educated player on board to fill his void in translating Brian Jennings unique locker room commentaries.

(Beer break)

6a (173) Chris Gragg TE, Arkansas.
OK, gotta admit I'm straining here but despite his injury concerns, he is fast. Maybe I'm just thinking a D.Walker replacement in a H-back role initially.

6b (180) Marquise Goodwin WR, Texas. 4.27 forty...
Long live N2TE (love ya brother)

7a (237) Chris Thompson RB, Florida State
Another guy that could have gone waaay higher except for an ACL injury that murk's the waters. Here's NFP's assessment of his stock if interested. http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/UnderRated-Prospect-FSU-RB-Chris-Thompson.html

7b (246) Walter Stewart OLB, Cincinnati: Who the hell needs a posterior arch of the C1 vertebra anyways. Just play baby!
7c (252) Elvis Fisher OT, Missouri: Another injury flyer that could sit on the PS and pan out?

That's all folks. Oh, I admire y'all that much more here in our forum as making one of these is a big pain in the derriere. I think I'll stick to reading them (and after reviewing my selections, you might all agree.) Laughing
Please comment and rip away if you made it this far...

Its very different from the norm but I kinda like it. I want a TE earlier i think Gagg is trash but other than that I'm no expert so if this is who we picked I would be good with it. the Jets trade seems a little like they are giving too much. Everyone knows that 2014 pick will be in the 10's or lower so we'd likely have to throw in a middle rounder and take out their 4th.

Like the Gragg and Catapano picks, but picking that many injured/troubled players really would frustrate me, personally. Do not like Matthieu at all.

First Ever? Well then, we gotta get up in here and pop that cherry!

First, I will say that I would be a happy oldman if this were the outcome to our draft.

Quote:
- 1 (31): TANK CARRADINE DE, Florida St.

Solid A pick for me... really starting to like the idea of Tank adding a bit of weight over time and being the successor to Justin.

Quote:
2b (61) Damontre Moore OLB, Texas A&M.

A+ on value alone. I haven't watched a lot of him to say much, but it is always wise to snatch up a pass rusher that falls much further than he should. Parys is just... aiight... and no telling what we have in the others.

Quote:
3a (74) D.J. Swearinger S, South Carolina.

Some may call it greed... some would call it pipe-dreaming BS to think that a prospect I have as #37 on my BB could fall so very far. I'll just call it "the draft" because we sure have learned that many bizarre things can, have, and will continue to happen that baffle our small minds. A+++ pick.

Quote:
3b (93) Barrett Jones OL, Alabama.

There's more of that.. well, just read the above response again, lolz. (#56 on my BB) A+ pick

Quote:
4a (106) Tyrann Mathieu CB/ST, LSU.

I still don't really trust his off-field character, but the value and talent (at least for NCB + K/P returner) is good. B

Quote:
4b (128) Marcus Lattimore RB, South Carolina

Solid B pick for me. The value is right, and we can stash him away on I.R. to plan for the future. Seems the coaches really like that Iowa RB we have though?... but what the heck.. we can afford a luxury pick here.

Quote:
4c (131) Kevin Reddick ILB, North Carolina

One of my favorite ILB options for us. #97 on my BB... A+ pick

Quote:
5a (157) Mike Catapano DE, Princeton

Another strong favorite and I love the value here. #100 on my BB. A++ pick. Catapano could be used as a pass rush specialist on obvious pass downs or he could possibly develop into a 3-4 DE. Many of these picks are making me weep for a 4-3 scheme.. again.

Quote:
6a (173) Chris Gragg TE, Arkansas.

Value is spot on, and yeah, makes sense to develop a Walker Jr. even if we are using Anquan in that role for a year. B

Quote:
6b (180) Marquise Goodwin WR, Texas. 4.27 forty...

... and just when I thought I'd miss Teddy Ginn Jr. Yeah, what the heck... We can always use that speed and KR ability. B+

Quote:
7a (237) Chris Thompson RB, Florida State

Finally a pick I can tear into like a savage hatputs! another RB? Iz you craycray? Just no! F-

Quote:
7b (246) Walter Stewart OLB, Cincinnati
7c (252) Elvis Fisher OT

Yeah, I like giving Stewart a chance... and I always like late rd OL to mix it up in training camp.

Overall, like I said... a happy oldman. Well done!

(really, more like an 8.5, but too lazy to make my own scorecards)

For the most part, I really like it. I hate Moore though. He's off my board completely. Immature, not a hard worker from what I've seen, questionable metrics, and off the field concerns. Don't want any part of him. Other than that, its just prospect preference. I like stoneburner more than gragg, and don't care for drafting two running backs. Love the lattimore selection as his potential totally makes him worth it, but otherwise I want to see how jewel Hampton performs so I wouldn't take a second rb and would probably go with additional dline or developmental qb for practice squad or something.

Thanks for the replies guys. Wanted to do something a little different for my first shot.
I wasn't too sure about the trade value and thought it may have been unrealistic but then again, certain organizations are just plain stupid and the Jets are right at the top of the list now so you never know.

As prefaced in the mock, I loaded up on guys with question marks on them (either physical or cerebral) as I felt that's where you can potentially get great value. It's a gamble but there's just no way in hell more than 5/6 guys actually sticks with our deep team anyways.

As for Chris Thompson, yea started to get lazy right about then. Had a list of five or six late round sleepers in mind and figured what the hell. If nothing else, we'd have a fast guy to pick up and bag up all the balls after practices before he buys a ticket to Saskatchewan. That in and of itself should warrant a F+ I thought Laughing

Love the fact that there's differing opinions (good and bad) as that's what makes this forum entertaining. Thanks again and bring on the draft!!!
