Barbarian's Mock 2

Recommended Posts

Quinnen Williams, Jonah Williams among four from Alabama going pro

 

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 11:59 AM ET

 

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama's annual exodus of underclassmen to the NFL began again Friday when four players declared for the draft, including star defensive lineman and potential top-five pick Quinnen Williams.

 

Offensive lineman Jonah Williams and running back Josh Jacobs also declared for the draft in a Friday news conference. Tight end Irv Smith Jr., who was not present, announced his decision on Twitter.

this seems like a fantastic, yet improbable draft.  If J. Williams, and A. Johnson are available at those slots, that's a huge win.  Not to mention M. Hyatt in the 6th. 

 

I love the idea of FA O-line just because there will be less of a learning curve, esp. at Center.  But if J. Williams is there at 9, I'm still taking him.  I doubt he will be, and FA OL really lets us go BPA or trade back and load-up at WR, RB, etc in the draft. 

I tried to use the most realistic option and set it to difficult. It isn’t perfect but probably as good as you’ll get.

Lyndstrom is going early round 2

 

TJ Hockenson if he declares may go late round 1, but won’t last past pick 50.

 

Winovich will go no later than mid round 3.

Right now at 9. I believe it will be 

 

Devin White

Rashan Gary

Ed Oliver

Jeffrey Simmons 

 

Wasnt impressed by Jonah Williams against Clemson. He didn’t help his stock especially when there were talks that he had not faced a great pass rusher all year. Then he did.

 

 

 

 

 

First rule of discussing the draft in January..........gotta' understand that there are at least 150 players that draftniks are certain will go in the first 3 rounds.

 

In reality about 15 players that no draftnik thinks will go early will actually go in the first 3 rounds.

 

And amazingly guys like Levi Wallace.........who seemed like even a possible 3rd round pick will fall out entirely of what is basically a 9 round draft after comp picks.

 

Point is........it's too early to be declaring for certain where a prospect of broad differing opinion like Winovich or Lyndstrom will go.

Just did this one on FanSpeak. Would have liked to address RB earlier but it just didn't shake out properly for that. Only doubled up on WR with Anthony Johnson because he was BPA by almost 20 spots on the big board.

I really like LB Sutton Smith especially if we can get him in round 5. I would love to see him at SLB and coming off the edge in passing downs. He is a little undersized but he is a baller with an unbelievable motor. Fingers crossed this happens.

Smith is an absolute gamer. I know the current regime has a type of DE, and I think Smith's best fit is probably a pass rushing sub edge player in a 3-4 D, but with a few more pounds of muscle he could be the heir apparent in Alexander's hybrid role.

We have 2 young punters on IR.

 

Even in the 7th there must be a better option.

Bradbury has risen that far? I thought he'd be a sleeper 3rd or 4th rounder?

 

Seems like a Top 50 lock especially with Biadsz returning to Wisconsin

Too many assets to give up for any of those guys IMO.  One of them could even fall into there laps at 23.  None of them are worthy of that kind of trade up for at this point, could change as we get closer to the draft.  Cody Ford is an interesting prospect to me.  Just don't see them giving up those assets for anything less than a Quenton Nelson type of prospect.  

 

Houston's OL is in even worse shape than ours. They're #1 asset is Watson and they've done a bad job at protecting him. It's not far fetched that they make a move up. 

 

The Saints moved up to take a project DE last year. Anything can happen.

Is "Wishnowsky" a real thing?  It seems like some name a kid made up.  "I Wishnowsky that my punt goes 75 yards and rolls to a stop at the 1.  HIKE!"

Perhaps it's a name his parents gave him.

If the best O-Lineman in the draft falls down to them at #9,  pull the trigger and make the pick.

Using Drafttek

 

1. WR DK Metcalf 6'4" 225 Ole Miss

2. OT David Edwards 6'7" 315 Wisconsin

3. OG Chris Lyndstrom 6'3" 307 Boston College

4. TE TJ Hockenson 6'4" 250 Iowa

4. DT Olive Sagapolu 6'2" 345 Wisconsin

5. DE Chase Winovich 6'3" 245 Michigan

5. CB Rock Ya-Sin 6'2" 190 Temple

6. OLB Ben Burr-Kiven 6'0" 221 Washington

7. Punter Mitch Wishnowsky 6'2" 220 Utah

7. TE Jace Sternberger 6'4" 250 Tex A&M

 

Like the top 4, but I would go Jonah Williams OT in Rd1 as I think Metcalf could be had at pick 41 given injury concerns.  Also any DT picked should be a 3T as we don't really have one now (Jordan Philips could play there if re-signed).  Good work here

I like it but I would switch out Metcalf with N'Keal Harry.  He has the best hands in the draft and we have the best fastaballer QB.

Definitely don't think Ed Oliver will be there at 9, I would've taken Allen or Greedy.

Solid mock draft.

 

I don't think I'd take a WR in this draft top 20, if I was going to take a flier on a guy it would be our own UB alum Anthony Johnson, the guy runs really nice routes, not blazing speed but enough to keep the defense honest and excellent hands plus we screwed up on not taking Khalil Mack so I'd think we'd be straight up fools to do that again if the opportunity was right. I have a feeling we select a pass rusher, Clelin Ferrell of Clemson round 1, I truly believe the Bills will build up most of the OL in FA, also add a veteran WR then get the rest via draft, heavy offensive draft I'd say.

He is someone that is on my radar too in the 5th or later..

 

As mentioned, could fit the Lorenzo role longer term ..,

 

On the small side, , but as we have seen with Milano when he was drafted this is not necessarily a deal breaker with this team..

There is no WR in this draft that justifies a Top 10 selection. 

 

Metcalf has top 10 ability, and had he not been hurt he would be ranked there already.  His type of injury shouldn’t have an impact on his career either.  

 

So if he has had a big combine, he will likely be on many teams boards as the top WR on the board and could go top 15 even top 10.

 

I want him or Harry.

So you see OL heavily addressed in FA, which makes sense. Since I don’t even know who most of these people are, I’ll trust you and the FO to make the right thing happen. 

 

 

But what would I give to sit in the draft room.....

Wrong. N’Keal Harry is a top 10 pick.
