WTH? CBS with worst mock yet.. Off the EDGE

Recommended Posts

I've seen some mocks that are questionable but this one. Picking Terrell Lewis over A.J. Epenesa and Gross-Matos at EDGE/OLB. Does anyone have secret info on this guy that we would make such a move?  He's lost 2 seasons due to elbow and knee problems and skipped the Citrus Bowl this year. Seems like damaged goods to waste a #1 pick on.  I'd rather get us a playmaker on offense, but if we go edge, and EP and GM are on the board, this would be crazy. Unless Daboll has magic Tide powers we don't know about.

Let's use this to post all the crazy ass mocks that pop up. Appreciate the banter. I'm so ready for mini-camp and another season to begin. GO BILLS!

It’s a mock draft in February...I wouldn’t put too much thought into it.

For some reason I just can’t get into the mock drafts this year. Maybe it’s just too early.

No way in Hades Rivera and Co. pass on Chase Young, just not gonna happen. And the Dolphins will not try to get to #2 for Tua. The Lions don't want a QB with their first pick.

Its worse because we have a QB, removing a ton of suspense and intrigue, and are drafting so low. I just can't bring myself to care.

Not as bad as you think.  I don’t agree with taking him over some of the other talent there, but this is a guy who has tremendous unknown upside that he really flashed late in his career.  Injuries really hampered his production.  He’s a big time sleeper, to crack the top 15, too.

Aren’t all mocks the worst?

 

Yeah. Yeah they are.

It’s a scientific fact that a steady diet consisting of Mock drafts and Ovaltine can help prevent erectile disfunction for those that reside in the pacific north west.   Argue with science...   I dare you, Jay.

Harder for me to get into them as much with so many variables as to who will still be on the board when we pick.

I think the thought is "It's the Bills, let's have them do something unpredictable and kind of dumb"

The stench lingers after the floor was swept 3 years back.

I kind of feel drafting "sleepers" (aka "thinking we're smarter than everyone else in the room") systematically stymied the Bills for years.  I'm for staying away from players who "flash" and have "unknown upside" and a bad injury history.

 

I do feel Beane & Co have been generally drafting very well and less "sleeper"-ish, but of course, the Jury is ultimately still out on QB.

This is what you get when ‘The Price Is Right’ goes on filming hiatus.  HR had to find something for the production crew to do.

Would you be considered insane if you sat down and created a 7 round mock for all 32 teams?

Well, at least we would know whoever does probably isn’t surfing sketchy websites...no time!

Yeah, they're pointless before the combine.     But still draw clicks from people with too much time on their hands (95% of us)...

How dare you sully the good names of Erik Flowers, Mike Williams, Aaron Maybin and John McCargo!  Not everyone can be an elite “Chris Watson” caliber talent.  These gentleman are just about ready to hit their strides!  They just needed a decade or two...

I think it has more to do with drafting so late. It's tough to predict who may even be realistically available and who we may realistically even want.

I always say can we wait until after FA to see what the Bills and other teams really need before we mock? A lot can change this upcoming month in terms of team needs.

taking an Edge makes sense.  But Lewis over both Epoenesa and Gross-Matos?  um....no.

i think it's insane when i use a site and do it for the bills, but i can't help it, i love this stuff.  

 

one thing these mocks are good for is introducing those of us like me, who don't watch a ton of college ball, to names along with analysis of players from various sources so that we can reach a conclusion on who we like.

#MeToo

I only watch the big games and playoffs.  I didn't watch any of the regular bowl games.  

 

Since there are a few players on LSU that have been mocked to the Bills, I paid attention to them.  

I didn't know who Henry Ruggs was until I saw him mocked to us.
