This may be my favorite mock yet. I would pretty much do cartwheels if it fell this way. My concern is that T'eo would not make it to 35 but this would rock!

Not a huge Woods guy, but I like the rest of the picks. I want the first two picks to be Defense.

You lost me after Sylvester Williams...who is a great pick .. after that dont like it much.

Te'o is another slow plodding LB like we have always had..we need to infuse speed into the LB core...I was not a fan of Athur Brown but have watched him some more and wouldnt mind him...rather have someone like Kevin Riddick or Sio Moore....Speed is name of game nowadays

Woods...Another USC WR that doesnt impress me..not many Pete Carrol recruited receivers from USC have made it...there have been alot of hype on these guys but none have produced...not alot of upside imo

McFadden ...ok i guess still dont like 5 10 no matter how long his arms are..our conference has huge recievers...Someone like Banks or Amerson be better

Quanterius Smith...in the 4th rd seems pretty high consensus is 6 0r 7 th on him is what i have seen...he definetly has potential but he was hurt i thought

Quessenberry ...good pick nice value..i like him alot

Way to many DB,s in later rds for me...I would prefer a big bodied receiver sleeper Marcus davis brandon kaufman kid from rutgers

Like the entire draft but just to let you know McFadden went to San Diego State not San Jose State.

The draw back of having two players, close together, from two closely named schools.

I know he's from San Diego State, I listed him as such at the bottom. I must have double typed San Jose State due to Quessenberry.

Good catch though, and thanks for pointing it out.

Only two places that put him at 5th round or below are walterfootball and nfldraftscout.

Corey Chavous and others have him rated higher than the 4th round, but falling to the fourth due to his injury.

He definetly fits the new DE mold long ,lanky, fast..we never seem to draft those guy s though...probably too one dimensional in Spielmans eyes..what is he like 6 5 250..i would be all for it ...just seems a little too high..i bet he is there in the late rds

If I were a betting man I'd put a wager on Smith not lasting past the fourth round Wink

He certainly is long, but not one dimensional. One of the most polished ends in the class due to his read/react ability.

This is my ideal draft. Only thing different if like to see is a high risk high reward player like Matthieu or Lattimore.

Not trying to be that guy but Chavous rankings have been horrible throughout his time doing Mock Drafts.

What is it with the first 2 picks being defense on every mock draft I see. We have no proven WR's except Jennings... Wright showed potential last year but thats it. Why wouldn't we get a WR in the first round especially if Patterson falls to us? (please dont say his character concerns)... Him falling seems to be getting more and more realistic as the Draft gets near. He's not Harvin. We have no idea what he will bring to us but he has ALOT more upside than any 2nd rd WR. Same goes for Keenan Allen. Too many good WR's to pass up in the 1st round. You need as many High Level/Elite college football players as we can get as weapons for Ponder why pass on them? But, other than that nice mock everywhere else.

I agree but isn't that kind of Smith in the 4th? Just injury vs character?
