This is my 1st mock this year...i think. Confused Anyway let me know what you guys think.

Trades:
-We trade Matt Schuab, the 10th overall pick, and Denver's 4th
for
the 2nd overall pick

-We trade Demorio Williams to Chicago for their 1st round pick

1st round- Calvin Johnson (WR, Georgia Tech)
This pick needs no explanation. I think McKay really likes Calvin and is going to do what it takes to get him to stay in Atlanta.

1st round (via CHI)- Levi Brown (OT, Penn State)
I think Petrino is really going to want to address the O-line in this draft becuz he knows we aren't going to have an explossive offense if Vick doesn't have time to throw. Levi Brown has great size(6'5" 324) but is still very athletic.

2nd round- Charles Johnson (DE, Georgia)
Tons of depth at DE this year, and a good one is going to fall here. If not Johnson then Carriker, Woodley, Abiamiri, McDonald, and maybe even Moses.

3rd round- Manuel Ramirez (OG, Texas Tech)
This guy is mammoth. He is a great run blocker and a very good pass blocker. He has Shawn Andrew potential in my mind, and he might not be here at this pick, but guards always seem to fall in the draft.

3rd round (comp for Shaffer)- Eric Weddle (S, Utah)
Weddle is not just a great player, but a great person. He is very active in the community and major is special needs education. He doesn't have elite size and speed, but he is a playmaker on the field. Might go higher, but once again safety is a deep position this year, and they always seem to fall.

4th round- Samson Satelle (OG/C Hawaii)
Once not really a need, but after getting Ramirez, but I dont like McClure starting at center in our new offense, so I think Satelle can take over for him in a year or two.

5th round- Paul Soliai (DT, Utah)
Utah had a great run D this year, and that was mainly becuz of Soliai. He is a Ngata clone and even though DT isn't a need this year, Grady is getting old and we can groom a guy to take over for him now.

6th round- Nate Ilaoa (RB, Hawaii)
This guy is the definition of a power back. He is 5'9 248 and has 4.6 speed. He runs with alot of aggression, and averaged like 8 yards a carry this year. He is the powerback we need to compliment Norwood.

So there is my mock guys. Let me know what you think.

We can get Sam as a UDFA, I'd go with Tra Battle at 6 instead

Would love for the Falcons to get this draft, but they do really have the cap room for all those draft picks? Especially the two first round picks, one of which being the second overall.

Every GM likes Calvin! He is the best WR prospect that I can remember. He will warrant a lot to trade up to get. I dont think its realistic that we get him as I have said before. Being extremely optimistic, then yes its a heck of a trade up.
