My favorite player in this draft is Jerry Hughes - check draft #1
IMO Trent Williams will be a very good RT - check daft #1
Javier Arenas - decent corner depth and good return guy - check draft #1
Colt McCoy my least favorite "first round" qb in this draft - check draft #2...
Sign me up for #1 please.

Decided to post up two different mock drafts, wanted to see which one you guys liked more. For the two first rounders, assumed we'd be picking in the 8th and 12th spots.
1a. Trent Williams, RT, Oklahoma
- I wanted us to pick up Loadholt last year for our RT position, and look at him now with Minnesota. Williams is an even better RT than Loadholt, and I think will make not only our line better, but I think will make Rachal better also.
1b. Jerry Hughes, OLB, TCU
- Finally, we have the pass rusher we so desperately need. Yes, he has played for TCU and hasn’t played consistently against Top D-I talent, but the man is a beast and wouldn’t have to worry about coverage skills since he already does it all at TCU.
2. Javier Arenas, CB, Alabama
- Strong coverage CB, would fit into defense. In my opinion, best returner in college football. Can’t miss pick.
3. Boo Robinson, DT, Wake Forest
- Possible NT of future, but most likely will resign Franklin, so he can learn from him.
4. Mike Johnson, OG, Alabama
- Big and strong, loves to hit, what else would you want in an OG?
5. Richard Dickson, FB, LSU
- Norris can’t be here forever, and Dickson has shown to be
6. Tony Pike, QB, Cincinatti
- The guy is legit, cheap pickup and can compete with Nate for #3.
7. Depth for special teams
1a. Colt McCoy, QB, Texas
- Draft for talent with first rounders, and McCoy looks like the real deal. Locker and Clausen will go before him, but let him sit first year, pickup the offense, and be the next great Niner QB.
1b. Joe Haden, CB, Florida
- Most talented CB in draft. Can cover, blitz, run support, and return. Future #1 CB after Nate Clements leaves or moves to Safety.
2. Eric Norwood, OLB, South Carolina
- Amazing pass rusher and strong on run, decent in coverage. Has SEC speed and feel he can overthrow Haralson for OLB.
3. Daryl Washington, ILB, TCU
-Leader of one of the toughest defenses in college for the past few years. Will take over for Spikes when done. Will automatically upgrade special teams.
4. Sam Young, RT, Notre Dame
- Strong RT, fills a need. Better than what we have and could be a steal in the 3rd.
5. Richard Dickson, FB, LSU
- Norris won’t be here forever, same mold and has helped produce a few 1,000 yard backs at LSU.
6. Mike Tepper, OL, Cal
- See him being converted to guard in pros, has a nasty streak that all guards need.
7. Depth for Special teams
Appreciate any analysis and criticisms[/b]
