Its hard to imagine with all the FA signings we've made that there is room on the roster for another 6 players, but here's our slate of draft picks as I see them ... for now.

1 (24): Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee: When I watch hunter I see a natural runner. Long and lean, he reminds me of Randy Moss when running. Now that likely means he'll never be able to run the plethora of routes we've been accustomed too (Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harisson) but I have no doubt he'll take the top off any NFL defense he faces. He's got good speed (4.44 forty), great height and weight (6' 4", 196 lbs) and game tape that jumps. After an ACL tear in 2011, its plausable that Hunter never reached his full potential in 2012.

3 (86): Jordon Poyer, CB/S, Oregon State: The need dictates OLB and WR with the first picks, but I don't know we're gonna get anything different at OLB in round 3 then what we have on the team. The value is on the back end, or at OG/C. Poyer lacks true top end speed, but the guy is a playmaker. He had 7 INT's last year for the beavers, and projects as a Nickle corner, or possible centre field like safety for this team.

4 (121): Travis Bond, OG, North Carolina: The value in the middle of the draft is going to be on the interior of the o-line. Bond is huge at 6' 5" and 329 lbs. He has crazy long arms at 35.5". He'd immediately add some teeth to the run game if he could win the RG spot. A lot of upside here ... there are few people with this level of size.

6 (192): Bacarri Rambo, S, Georgia: Prototype size, 2nd team all american who's draft stock will be pushed down due to off field issues. I get the feeling this team isn't as concerned with the off field stuff as it used to be, and this is only a 6th rounder. Team is in need of special teamers and reserve safety, which can be addressed this late in the draft.

7 (230): Braden Brown, OG, BYU: A big bodied, long guard prospect with experience at OT. Older then most prospects due to his missionary work. Solid, not flashy prospect who should make a team as a back up.

7 (254): Garret Goebel, DE/DT, Ohio State: Prototype size for the 5 technique. This pick is a long shot to make the team, but a 5T from the Big 10 has to have a better shot then most.

I love Hunter as a prospect, and the closer the draft gets and the moves we have made!! He is who I would be looking at in round 1 IMO!

Love Poyer in the 3rd although I doubt he is there!

Love the Rambo pick as well!!

Cant say I know too much about the other 3!

Great mock! I'm a huge Poyer fan, and think he should stay at CB. Btw, he's from Oregon State, not OK State.

I remember just before free agency critiquing a mock draft with a WR in the first round saying that the only way we would draft a WR in the first is if we addressed OLB (Walden?), DE (RJF), NT (Franklin), CB (Toler and Butler) and OL (Thomas) in free agency. So I guess it is put up or shut up time.

I'm still not 100% up on all the prospects but I've seen quite a few mocks with us taking Hunter in the first and Rambo in either the 4th or 5th round (or 6th) so we probably won't end up with them. Laughing

I'm not a big Hunter fan. I think most people are putting him in the first based on what he could become, and I've never put much faith in the futures market. If the Colts do go WR in the first, then I'd say go with Allen. I think he's the best fit for the WC offense and has languised in Cal with horrible QB play.

I think an outside pick for the first is Travis Frederick. He's rated in the 40s-50s, but was a BEAST of a RG last year and suffered this year from a lack of experience on the Wisconsin O-line. Every year a few guys surprisingly jump in the first round, like Zietler last year with Cincy. I'd be VERY pleased with Frederick, especially because I don't think he lasts until the third.

Then we should trade down a few spots, if we acquire him!

I'd only take him if he is there in the third. Guards fall on draft day, he isn't worth a first.

Not really. Bell or Taylor in the 3-4th would be nice, but Ballard behind an improved line is enough.

Good effort on this mock. I agree we need to draft a wide reciever early. IMO that's our biggest need on the offensive side of the ball.

I thought the same thing about Zietler last year, but he played very well for Cincy. Now, I'm not advocating Frederick, I'm just saying I wouldn't be surprised, especially since a guy at my office showed me a story from a draft website (it's been a few weeks, so I've forgotten exactly which one) which identified Frederick as a possible first round surprise and listed the Colts and Falcons as possible landing spots.

Really like the Hunter, Poyer, and Brown picks.

I think it's a bit far-fetched to imagine that Rambo falls out of the 3rd round. I also view Poyer as a 1st rounder, and Bond as a late rd/UDFA. Shocked

( but that's the fun of the draft... lots of speculation and differing viewpoints )
