Haven't done a mock in a while, so here goes. As I haven't followed the draft process is as much detail as I have in previous years, if any of the draft picks are out of line, let me know.

Free Agents

Nate Allen
Donnie Jones
Jeremy Maclin
Riley Cooper
Bryan Braman
Nolan Carroll
Malcolm Jenkins
Chris Maragos
Darren Sproles (trade)

I also see us signing an experienced backup QB.

Draft

1-22 Kony Ealy Rush LB Missouri



Iím surprised that Ealy hasnít been talked about more as a potential draft pick. He has the height and weight Kelly is looking for from his outside linebackers. He has been productive for Missouri and comes from a program which has produced a number of high quality linemen in recent years. His 40 time wasnít the greatest, but his 10 yard split was one of the best for a non WR/DB. Like many conversion players, heís going to need a year of seasoning, but with Cole playing at a good level, we donít need to rush him.

2-22 Donte Moncrief WR Mississippi



Moncrief is in a similar position to Ealy, he has all the raw attributes to be a productive player, but only needs refinement. He has the HWS that we havenít got at receiver and heís a good blocker Ė something which is imperative from our receivers. With Jackson, Maclin and Cooper being our top three receivers, Moncrief doesnít need to be rushed into the lineup.

3-22 Dion Bailey S Southern California



Bailey is a versatile defensive back who Kelly will have experience of from the Pac-12. Bailey has played both linebacker and safety in college. Heís going to need some refinement on deep coverages, but should be able to give us a different option to Wolff and Jenkins. His versatility could see him playing closer to the line of scrimmage as a linebacker in sub packages.

4-22 Christian Jones LB Florida State



Jones is a versatile linebacker who has the ability to play both inside and outside linebacker. I see him as someone who can back up Barwin at the strong outside linebacker position.

Philadelphia trades Brandon Graham and Bryce Brown to Minnesota for their 5th round pick

Note, I donít see this as being an actual trade (though I can see the value for Minnesota of adding Graham and Brown), but I do feel the value of the two players is around a high 5th round pick.

5-8 (from Minnesota) Ė Phillip Gaines CB Rice



Gaines is a good development cornerback. He has the height weíre looking from for our CBs and heís aggressive when shadowing receivers. He needs to work on his ball skills and his tackling, which he can do as I doubt heíd be thrust into the lineup straight away.

5-22 Justin Ellis NT Louisiana Tech



Ellis is a traditional nose tackle who can help out in our rotation on the defensive line. He seems to take his position to heart:

Quote:
"I love being a nose tackle," Ellis said. "I'm an unselfish player. I'm okay with taking two blocks for the linebackers to make the tackle."


7-22 Gabe Ikard C/G Oklahoma



Ikard is an experienced interior lineman who has the ability to play both guard and center. He has his limitations, but could develop into a solid backup lineman.

Rookie free agents

TE Colt Lyerla Oregon



No surprises here.

K Zach Hocker Arkansas



Hocker is brought in to challenge Henery as the kicker.

Quote:
This season, the Russellville, Ark., native scored 67 points, 28-of-28 on PATs and 13-of-15 on field goals. Three of his field goals rank among the 15 longest in school history, including a 54 yarder that is tied for the eighth-longest by a Razorback. Hocker also kicked off 50 times, averaging 63.2 yards per kickoff with 34 touchbacks. His touchback percentage of 68 percent ranks second in the SEC and fifth in the NCAA, and his average is fourth in the conference and 18th in the nation


RB Tim Flanders Sam Houston State



Flanders is a Sproles like player who can line up everywhere and create mismatches

WR Austin Franklin New Mexico State



Franklin is an all purpose weapon who could do some of the jobs that Jackson

G Trey Hopkins Texas



Hopkins is an experienced lineman who has played both tackle and guard

Right, flame away

How dumb. two players with good potential in different schemes only for a 5th?

Really - what have either of them done to warrant a significant pick?

I'm sure they can generate at least a 5th round pick each. One pick for the both of them is laughable.

Really?

This is a world where Matt Schaub (for all his faults) was traded for a 6th round pick. This is very much a buyers market.

Okay. Well, Matt Schaub is one player, sucked last season, and is getting up there in age. Both Graham and Brown are young and when given the chance have proven to be productive.

I wouldn't hate it. Thought I doubt Ealy have the smooth hips to be an OLB

How much dropping into coverage do you expect him to do? I want someone who can get to the QB.

Im just not sure Ealy can move well enough at all to play OLB. Ealy looks like a 3-4 DE tbh.

dis doe.... he doesnt have speed or athletic ability to play at the next level on the edge, good college player but he reminds of guys like McClain and Hightower from Bama , just cant hang on the edge , are stiff as a board and cant move horizontally at, just down hill bashers in a league that will expose them.

I would be excited for this ... Chances that D Buchanan is still around to pick up instead of Bailey?

Schaub had a bad contract as well, but yes, Graham and Bryce aren't worth that much.
