Don't think I ever have done this before, but here goes:

Glad I don't have to guess as to key coaches and throw another batch of variables into the equation.

Let Cribbs, MoMass, Cousins and a host of others walk.

There will be a genuine QB competition among the incumbents. May the best man win.

We have money we almost have to spend in FA, so we lock up Dawson, Mack and Ward, and pick up a TE (Cook?), LB and OG.

Nobody in this draft excites me enough to burn a #6 on them, so...

We trade down with DAL so they can pick Glennon (Rang has them picking him at #1Cool. We get their 1st round picks this year and next, and their 2nd round pick this year. Think it's about a wash on the trade value chart.

We take:

1st Round #18: Dion Jordan, DE, OR

2nd Round #47: Xavier Rhodes, CB, FSU

3rd Round #68: Bacarri Rambo, S, Georgia

4th Round #101: Denard Robinson, KR, Michigan

5th Round #?: Brad Wing, P, LSU

Whatever floats your boat from here on out and UDFA.

Forward thinking:

We aren't going to win the Super Bowl this year, or deep into the playoffs, if we even make them, so...

- Finish off whatever D we will be running with a bunch of young players who can grow together

- Restock special teams built to last (even Dawson...guy seemingly ages like a good bourbon!)

- Stockpile another 1st round pick to get a franchise QB (or Clowney?) next year

Ok, let the slings and arrows fly!

I am sorry.

I look at Robinson as a hell of an athlete who can fill Cribbs' role in returns and maintain the illusion that we have wildcat capability, and who knows: Maybe Norv and Chud will actually use it if we have it!

I guess I am just more in the thought of letting Benji taking over return duties

Not sure he is durable enough to make it through a season.

Punt returns, hell yes. Punt returners don't seem to take quite the punishment KRs do...can always call fair catch.

You question Benji's durability, but not Robinson's? He seemed to be out of the game at least once every game in college.

Actually, I question both, which is why I would split the duties, Robinson KR and gimmick, Benji PR and WR.

That could work. I wouldn't mind it at all.

One of the better mocks I've seen. Not sure if Jordan lasts until 18 but hey, no one thought Glennon would be top 10 a few months ago so anything can happen. Would be interested in seeing who you think would be the LB and OG signing.
