We're 10 days away from one of the most wonderful times of the year. With Tyler Eifert off the board at 17 to Pittsburgh, Ted gets a call from Arizona as Matt Barkley is falling and Jacksonville picks ahead of them. We receive Arizona's 2nd and 4th round picks.

2.38: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama: Ted finally gets the featured back he's been wanting for a long time. Lacy has the power and vision to be a road-grader at RB perfectly complimenting Harris who serves as a change-of-pace back.

2.55: David Amerson, DB, NC State: Amerson would be moved to FS to fill the void Woodson has left behind. Amerson's combination of size, speed, and awareness fits perfectly into playing at the line of scrimmage, covering TE's, and helping out in coverage.

3.88: Barrett Jones, OL, Alabama: Jones has played every position along the O-line. Ted puts a premium on players like Jones. Jones had surgery on his foot back in January, but will be cleared to run in May.

4.103: Gavin Escobar, TE, San Diego St.: Escobar has the size to be an in-line blocking TE, but also has enough speed and sure hands to be a pass-catching TE. Scouts claim he is "creative" in the open-field and his agility is one of his strengths.

4.122: Ty Powell, OLB, Harding: People hardly know who this guy is, but after a strong showing at the Senior Bowl and Combine. Powell projects to be a mid-round pick. During a recent work out, Powell displayed exceptional ball skills and ran very well in drills. Powell runs a 4.6 40 and has the size to play OLB in the 3-4. This year's surprise pick.

5.159: Josh Boyce, WR, TCU: Boyce is a complete receiver having the speed, route-running ability, and reliable hands to solidify a position on the team. Boyce also has significant experience as a return specialist.

5.167: TJ Barnes, NT, Georgia Tech: Barnes is a mountain of a man, but is also a very quick man for his size(6-6, 345), Barnes would be an excellent rotational player who has the agility to start at DE and eventually move to NT to back-up BJ Raji.

6.193: Jake Stoneburner, TE, Ohio State: Stoneburner is essentially Crabtree's replacement. Though he is 6-4, 252 lbs. he posted a 4.53 and a 4.56 40 on his pro-day. Stoneburner is also an excellent receiver who can line up anywhere(including H-back) and projects to be an excellent developmental prospect.

7. Jared Smith, DE, New Hampshire: Nicknamed fat rabbit, Smith is a very quick man for his size and would become a solid rotational DE, especially in the wake of Worthy's injury.

Possible notable UDFAs: Mark Harrison, WR, Rutgers; Joe Madsen, C, West Virginia; D.J. Harper, RB/RS, Boise St.: William Campbell, DL, Michigan; Jake Knott, LB, Iowa St.; Toben Opurum, FB//OLB, Kansas; Mike Shanahan, TE, Pittsburgh; Patrick Lewis, C, Texas A&M

Not a good trade value either.

I don't think Lacy is there at 38. I guarantee you Jones will not be there at 88. I don't care where most mocks have Jones going. He will go between 29 and 44, closer to 29. He has New England written all over him at 29 for that matter. People forget, he played center last year but has excelled also at OT. He will be able to play any position on an NFL O-line, and sooner than most rookies.

As it sits with your mock though, I'm lovin it..

Like it a lot but I don't think Amerson is a good fit at safety. He isn't phyiscal enough IMO and he isn't that good against the run. Love Jones in that spot but I think he is probably going to go in round 2, damn good football player there. Like the rest a lot.

Great mock. Amerson is more than OK against the run in my book, but as a FS that won't his be primary assignment anyways. I want to see him roaming around 20 yards downfield like Nick Collins did for us, just keep everything in front of him & make plays on the ball.

I'm greedy .. I would want more than that 4th round pick from Arizona. I would expect to get both their 2nd and 3rd round picks, and maybe give them back a 5th or whatever makes the points work out. 2nd and a 4th just doesn't sound right to me when parting with a 1st .. albeit later 1st.

If you go by the NFL Trade Value Chart, which is just a guideline, a 3rd rounder that high is too much, but a fourth rounder is too low, so it could go either way or you could argue we should get another late round pick in addition to the 4th rounder.

I like this draft a lot. I am not a big fan of Escobar as I don't think he is physical enough nor that athletic enough, but I can't argue his productivity. Like the Amerson, Lacy, and Boyce picks in those spots. Good work.

Yeah, Escobar was kind of lower on my list too but we need at least 2 TE's IMO so Escobar gives us the pass-catching ability that Finley has shown a great inconsistency.

I was also going to think about swapping 3rds with Arizona, but the value chart didn't line up and we'd have to give up a 5th to make it work. I was originally intending on grabbing their 3rd. I just don't see how we move down and swap 3rd's or pick up an extra 3rd unless it's closer to ours.

Also, besides Harper, how does everyone feel about the UDFA's I selected?
