ok this is my last one

Jamaal Anderson is picked where he should be and does not last until pick 15

we trade 15 for a lower 1st and a 3rd (same as my last mock)

1. Anthony Spencer - Can never go wrong with tweeners


2. Ryan Kalil - Hartings retired hes the best Center in this draft


3. Jason Hill - I forgot about him in my final mock...I meant to pick a WR day 1 but it slipped my mind


3. Tony Ugoh - Our Oline was pitiful last year
4. Zak DeOssie - Farrior is old this kid will be a stud
4. Brian Robison - Another tweener...the worst is he will be a backup
5. Travarous Bain - We need help here, some push to make our starters better
5. Adam Podlesh - 5th round? yes we need a punter bad, he won't last much longer
6. Jordan Palmer - Nothing better than having our rivals little brother, plus our 3rd stringer didnt work out last year, lets give it another try
7. Nate Ilaoa - We cut Verron...no1 likes Leonard, Humes didnt work out, lets give nate a try

replace one of the LBer's with a different position, we dont need 4 in one draft...we dont really need 3 either but it would be nice to get Spencer, DeOssie and Robinson in 1 draft(i dont know much about that other guy). Besides that I kinda like this draft, especially Kalil, Spencer, Podlesh and Nate Illaoa.

I agree, maybe replace one of the LBer's with a big and tall WR

I like Durant but not this high. He needs to prove his size can survive the NFL season. I would rather take somone like Jacoby Jones, Jason Hill or even DT Ray McDonald. This is just my opinion

Over all Nice Draft.

Very good draft, don't like the qb and am not too fond of Ugoh. I would rather have a Jackie Battle(guy hits the hole like he's been fired out of a cannon) or a taller wr or a pssible starting DE or taller wr in place of Durant, @230 he's rather light. Really like the trade down if we can't get Anderson, because it helps us try to fix our Oline and front 7. Mostly I like that we get some big fast Lbers to remain a 3-4 for a while.

what about packaging the third that we acquired through trading down with our second so that we get two picks at the end of round one? Pick up Spencer and Posluszny there (who I see being an ILB) and instead of taking Justin Durant in the third we take someone like Abiamiri.

BTW: I don't think Ugoh falls out of rd 2, and I think our main need is OG not C, Mahan is most like our starter there, rd 2 would be decent territory to pickup Grubbs/Blalock/Sears though...

Either way, your draft is an interesting, and if somehow you incorporate a big wideout into it, I'd be plenty pleased with it, especially since we don't draft someone at 15 that we can get 5-10picks later...I hate wasting value like that, though you draft has us taking 10 guys and I don't think we have 10 roster spots available, so maybe trade down from 15, and move up elsewhere in the draft.

I agree with you about Anderson, I don't see him dropping to 15.

I fixed my mistake I forgot about WR...the mock is now updated

Nehow about the trades I didnt go in depth with all the trading I made one simple move to trade down in round 1

I think our best value (and most likely scenario) lies in moving up from the 46.

The only reasons Anderson would drop are he is essentially a 1 year starter and posted less than expected measurables. It's slightly unlikely he's there at 15, but only slightly.

I like the pick, but tweeners are pretty risky, so you can definitely go wrong...you're "projecting" them at another position.

2. Ryan Kalil - Hartings retired hes the best Center in this draft

Good pick again. It's a need, and he's pretty good.

3. Jason Hill - I forgot about him in my final mock...I meant to pick a WR day 1 but it slipped my mind

Another great pick here. I like him a lot.

3. Tony Ugoh - Our Oline was pitiful last year

Agree on O Line. I'd go with Yanda here, but Ogoh works.

4. Zak DeOssie - Farrior is old this kid will be a stud

Don't know much about him, but like what I have seen/read.

4. Brian Robison - Another tweener...the worst is he will be a backup

This guy is a stud. STEAL if he lasts till the 4th, but I think he's a 2nd rounder.

5. Travarous Bain - We need help here, some push to make our starters better

Meh, idk.

5. Adam Podlesh - 5th round? yes we need a punter bad, he won't last much longer

Another great pick. Most people like Sepulveda, but Pod is my guy.

6. Jordan Palmer - Nothing better than having our rivals little brother, plus our 3rd stringer didnt work out last year, lets give it another try

Meh, idk.
7. Nate Ilaoa - We cut Verron...no1 likes Leonard, Humes didnt work out, lets give nate a try

Meh, idk.


Overall, a great mock. Good players, at the right positions, with only 3 later picks being questionable in my book.

I like the trade, pick 1 and both pick 4's. The rest is not very good.

Kalil in the 2nd was a good pick before the Steelers acquired Mahan. Now it is a luxury pick that we cannot afford. Sears or Blalock would be better picks here.

Hill in the 3rd is another luxury pick. We need a solid #2 RB to compliment Parker, and I think Tony Hunt is that player.

Ugoh is not a good day 1 pick at all. I'd much rather have another D player on day 1, and I think you passed on several good candidates.

Bain in the 5th is okay. We'll get a CB at some point in this draft, but he better contribute on STs or he'll spend his 1st year on the PS.

Boo on punter in any round. Can you spell UDFA?

Eh on Palmer. Drafting someone because he is another team's QB is not a valid reason. Can he play?

Ilaoa in the 7th. Anything is possible I suppose. Not sure he is any better than the last few RBs we cut in camp.
