Floyd I liked but was concerend about his character. I liked Mercilus. Was up and down, more up on Ingram and Kirkpatrick. Everyone else on that list I had no interest in....


My mocks tend to stray from what majority of this forum feels. lol


Yeah my mocks are never liked on here. Especially when I mention CB. People become homers on certain people and don't like the idea of upgrading positions because they like who we have.

Because we have much bigger needs. Why draft a CB in the 1st round when we just gave McCourty a big deal? Both McCourty and Verner make up a very good CB duo. The safeties behind them suck and the pass-rush isn't great. We're not drafting a CB in the 1st round.

You need at least 3 corners. Teams play in nickel more than half the times often. Verner could excel as a Nickelback. We need another starter on the edge.

Tommie Campbell would be perfect if he could get himself straight and that would really eliminate the need for a CB.
But if Dee Milliner falls to #10 then we need to take him.

The pass rush is stronger than the coverage. We had 16 sacks in December alone. Even before that we were getting decent pressure most games, but 3 seconds after the ball is snapped someone was always open down the seam, or underneath outside, really anywhere on the field. I was high on McCourty starting before anyone else and I'm going to be the first to say I like him and I think he is a solid #2, but there are teams in the NFL that he would not start for.

As KingTitan mentioned, there are 3 CBs on the field more often than not, and especially on our worst and most important down, third down, you will typically see 3 CBs. We died because of this last season.

They are a good CB duo, not a great one. There is a reason that noone outside of Tennessee thinks we have good corners, because we are homers and always overrate our own players.

The safety play is terrible and needs to be improved in order for a CB to be added. Sure, I agree with you there. But the CB play is not great and leaves a lot of room for improvement.

Hey all, I'm new to the forum. I've been lurking for over a year now and finally figured it was time to join in on the discussion heading into this year's draft. Very Happy With that said there are two mid round prospects that I've been looking at recently that are interesting to me, and I was wondering what your guys thoughts were on them if you've watched them at all.
Le'Veon Bell- This kid is a bruiser back out of Michigan State that simply does not go down on the first hit. I really liked what I saw out of him, and I got a big LeGarrette Blount vibe from him in terms of his running style. He's a very good North and South runner that has surprisingly good hands. He also has surprisingly nimble feet for a 245 pound back. I think he'd be very beneficial to us as a red zone back.

Shamarko Thomas- A strong safety out of Syracuse that lacks size but from the little film I could find on him seemed like an intriguing prospect. He seemed like he had a knack for shooting through the gap to blow up runs in the backfield, but he does tend to play with a lot of reckless abandon in pass coverage which could be a double edged sword. He really has the swagger that I look for in a safety. He's not the biggest by any means, but he's a dude that seems to bring it every time he is out there.

Now, keep in mind I am definitely not saying these are two of the best players at their respective positions, but they are two guys that have caught my eye early on in the draft process.

Bell is someone I'd love to pick up in the 4th, though I doubt he lasts that long. Off the top of my head, hasn't he had quite a bit of tread taken off the tires though while at MSU?

As for Thomas, I know nothing about him, but we need all the safety help we can get.

Yes, that's one of the concerns I've had with him as well. This past year he was pretty much the only back MSU had, and he had 382 carries. I feel like if we snagged him we could still get some good use out of him especially since we'd only be using him as a complementary back to CJ.

Well KT in this sense, I'd have to agree. Based on what the coaches were saying, they feel that the LB corps is currently the strength of our defense and plans to build around it. So at this point, in spite of my own opinion of what we need, I don't know exactly what the coaches have in mind for the D-line. Do they think we need to find a more dominant DT to pair with Casey for a stronger impact in the middle? Or are they confident with what we have at the moment, and feel that we can find that player later in the draft? Bottom line is, if we do decide we're going defense first and the top #10-valued DLs are off the board, then Dee Milliner would be the most sensible choice. With him opposite of McCourty, that would finally push Verner back to NB where he could have a better impact in our secondary. Then Tommie Campbell could be the backup to either outside position.

Zac Stacy is who I want at RB. Mid round selection would be a great 2nd RB. Good at receiving and pass protection.

He is the RB in my upcoming Mock.

If I could take one earlier it would be Franklin from UCLA.

I feel like the Titans will try to get Matt Elam somehow. Gregg Williams likes having a SS with an attitude/swag and be able to lay the big hit. Swearinger is another one. I think SS will upgraded regardless. No more nice/soft safeties like Babs, Griffin, and Johnson.

I've been thinking the same thing with Swearinger. If he doesn't adjust his style a bit he is going to be penalized/fined a lot. But he can dish out the big hits that can control the middle of the field.

Also, this video is hilarious.

I have us taking Swearinger in the third round. People have him projected all over the place so it will be interesting to see where is projected after the Combine.

We are sharing a few prospects. I have us taking him in the second in my upcoming mock. I don't know if he will make it to our 3rd. Some are rating him above Elam.

Another DT I've taking a liking to is Shariff Floyd. Great kid with relentless motor. Wouldn't mind him at 10.
