Daniel Jeremiah mock #3 (Hockenson to Bills)

Recommended Posts

Possible, see what OTs are still there and if any great player happens to slip.  I would prefer BPA and I dont think Hockendon would be close to BPA at 9, some players always slides.

Ed Oliver over Quinnen Williams would be a shock

I really hope this happens.

 

Kroft is really only a blocking TE and I really think we need to give Allen a true receiving TE.

 

Hock or Fant would be awesome

He'd tick so many boxes and I'd be elated. 10 year quality pro who instantly is the best TE we've had since the early 90's. Great locker room guy who has a chance to be an All Pro guy and with our vertical offense he's going to eat in the middle of the field/intermediate. Sign me up.

If the draft fell this way I would have no problem with Hock....

 

I really do not want to give up draft assets unless it is for a proven stud.

Now if he doesn't change this pick on version 4.0, lock it in. Check out his 4.0 mock last year on the day of the first round. Order is a little off but he was really close on the top 15 or 16.

Hes extremely well connected and outside of years past Mayock mocks Daniel Jeremiah is pretty good at knowing what each team wants.  Helps that he speaks with actual GM'S and scouts

Ya I can see it. And I’d be quite happy with it.

 

Beane has done his best to add to the offensive line this offseason. Hockenson is also a tenacious run blocker.

 

Allen needs a reliable receiving “safety blanket.” Hockenson is a very good receiver.

 

He’d command attention over the middle and allow the outside speed to get downfield.

 

I’m not usually for taking a TE that high but if it came to be, I’d probably pump my fist and say something totally Jay_Fixity like “nice pick, gang.”

With that first 8 selections to me it would  be between Hockenson or White with Hockenson being the pick.

 

Now if Boss, Williams, Allen or Oliver slide, they are the pick.

This is kinda where I am at right now.  Especially your last sentence.

You'd be elated to watch a defensive line that won't be able to get to the quarterback or stop the run?  Is your plan for them to use a 2nd on Khalen Saunders from the vaunted Western Illinois defense and hope that he turns into the next Aaron Donald or Fletcher Cox?

If that really is your plan, I hope watching Hockenson catch 300 passes for 40 touchdowns brings you joy, as the defense gets gashed in the running game week in and week out.

Much speculation with regard to trading for Clark while still keeping our first and that would make this pick extremely desireable.

LMAO - someone give this guy a merit badge for most over dramatic post of the month.

He better catch 70+ passes for 1,000+ yards if they pick him in the top 10

Unless you know for a fact that Hockenson is going to have a Tony Gonzalez/Gronkowski-esque, Hall of Fame career, NO tight end is worth the 9th pick. Full stop.

But, if they trade down into the teens, then, sure, take Hockenson or Noah Fant if they're the BPA.  Otherwise, if Jeremiah's mock holds true, I'd rather take Rashan Gary or Montez Sweat at 9 than a freaking tight end.

I also have a feeling that we are trading for Clark.  Was Dan Morgan with Seattle when Clark was drafted?

I've been "stanning" for Hockenson for a couple months now  Beane's quote yesterday got me excited at first, where he was saying they grade tight ends 3 ways and I thought that really was good for Hockenson since he is both a very capable blocker and receiver. 

 

However the more I've digested it I don't think he's the pick right now. That's just too obviously broadcasting your love for a guy, a la Doug Whaley.

I’d take a long look at Devin White here

If the first round plays out like this, I like Hock as the pick. 

 

For me it really comes down to Oliver and then Hock (provided the obvious top guys are gone - Bosa, Q Williams, J Allen).

Who's in the running for you for #9th pick?

You won't know for a fact that Gary, Sweat, or any player the Bills choose at 9 will be worth the pick - that is the nature of the draft. There is nothing to say that Hockenson won't be a better pick, or that the Bills' defense will be shredded every week if they don't pick a defensive player at 9....
