Free agent signings:

After much consideration I believe the Raiders stay put at #1

Jerry Hughes DE-Worked himself into a player RM's kind of signing.

Charles Clay TE- A versatile blocker and decent pass catcher to pair with Rivera, who can also line up at FB.

Walter Thurmond CB- A young CB to add to the competition for the 3rd spot behind Hayden, and Carrie.

Oniel Cousins OG- A veteran guard on a Reggie special, 1 year deal.

Marshawn Lynch RB- Beast mode!


Trade: Round 2: #33 to STL for #40 & #72, STL select at #33, Brent Hundley, QB, UCLA


1st: #1- Leonard Williams, DT, USC- The best player in the draft that simple, now is not the time to over think things.

2nd: #40 (from STL)- Josh Harper, WR, Fresno State- Underrated WR who had 79 catches for 1,011 yards and 13 touchdowns while starting 11-of-13 games, missing two with an injury with Carr throwing to him in 2013. Guy can take the top off. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRSpNqjzzAc

3rd: #65- Cody Prewitt, FS, Ole Miss- Eventual replacement for Woodson. He is an alert, active defender with good vision and the athleticism to handle deep coverage responsibilities.

3rd: #72 (from STL)- Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana- Even with defensive coordinators game-planning for Coleman, he is able to gash defenses with his vision to find holes, body control to get skinny and burst to accelerate downfield. He's been called a mix of Darren McFadden and DeMarco Murray. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VB1qk6yBvdI

4th: #97- Erick Kendricks, ILB, UCLA- Roach needs a backup and eventual replacement. Eric is instinctive, aggressive and a considerably more explosive hitter than his frame suggests. He closes quickly and with force, leading to some emphatic take-downs.

5th: #130- John Miller, OG, Louisville-While he may lack elite athleticism, Miller demonstrates intelligence, sound technique and toughness in the trenches with enough quickness in a short area to be a reliable pass-protector when asked to slide and mirror interior rushers, and his initial burst off the snap enables him to get to the 2nd level and target efficiently.

6th: #163- Daryl Williams, OT, Oklahoma- Project RT, Williams looks the part with excellent body thickness throughout and an anchor to hold his ground.

7th: #196- Jaxson Shipley, WR, Texas- Project WR, like his brother, he knows how to operate out of the slot and be an effective and reliable underneath target. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlQToaxpJnQ

2015 projection:
Offense:

QB: Carr/ McGloin
RB: Lynch/ Coleman/ Murray
FB: Reece/ Clay
WR: Harper/ Thompkins
WR: Streater/ Butler
WR: Jones/ Shipley
TE: Clay/ Rivera/ Kasa

LT: Penn/ Watson
LG: Jackson/ Barnes
OC: Wiz/ Bergstrom
RG: Miller/ Cousins
RT: Howard/ McCants/ Williams

Defense:

RE: Mayowa/ Autry
DT: Williams/ McGee
NT: Ellis/ Sims
LE: Hughes/ Wilson

WLB: Moore/ Armstrong
MLB: Roach/ Kendricks
SLB: Mack/ Burris

CB: Hayden/ Chekwa
CB: Carrie/ Thorpe
CB: Thurmond/ McGill
FS: Woodson/ Prewitt/ Dowling
SS: Branch/ Ross

Thoughts or grade, any feedback much appreciate. Updated!

Love rounds 3-4! And the first three picks seem very boom/bust to me, which isn't a bad thing but I'd hate to see Oakman never adjust to the pro game, DGB get In trouble and Abdullah get hurt.

All said, wouldn't be mad at this overall. I'm not sure Oakman is a top 10 talent but I like the pass rusher pick. I'm pretty confident that DGB won't be around in the second as he's a Megatron type talent. Love the Abdullah pick. Suh is obviously a great addition most of us will be banging the table for this off season. I'm still concerned about the MLB position (Roach might be done) but there really isn't much in the FA market or early rounds of the draft this year.

I'll give it a solid B+

D+ don't quit your day job kid Cool


all that cap space and you only sign one impact FA. Possibly 3 but Thurmond and clay would be luck to get over 2m annually.

first not bad. a lot of you picks will likely be off the board. beckham, dewitt, kendricks all will going a round higher then you suggest. This is not a Disney movie. late round picks are meh. I wouldn't mind Oakman and Abdullah tho. I would love SUH

We need to get a mock draft thread, mocks 6 months before the draft are literally pointless Rolling Eyes

You should get a job, then you wouldn't have time to post the same mock over and over again in every thread. By the way this is Reggie McKenzie we are talking about we will be lucky to get any impact FA's, funny you think the more you spend is going to make the team better. Don't quit your day job Kid!

Yeah we know, but nothing else to do so.

Oakman doesn't have a sack against a ranked opponent. He's feasting on pigeons.
