Mock Version 2.0

Man, that second round was pretty tuff to predict, but I tried anyway. I also went with players who can contribute immediately on ST to raise the talent level on that squad.

Just another one of these mock thingies to pass the time...
1 StL N. Suh, DT—Best prospect in years! Just too good to pass up.
2 Det G. McCoy, DT—Tuff one here. It will be he or Berry.
3 TB E. Berry, S—Starts from day one
4 Was S. Bradford, QB—Need accurate passer for WCO
5 KC R. Okung, OT —They also need an LT move Albert to RT or OG.
6 Sea J. Clausen, QB—They can get a franchise QB
7 Cle J. Haden, CB—Perfect for their horrible pass D.
8 Oak D. Morgan, DE—Time for an upgrade at pass rusher.
9 Buf A. Davis, OT.—Need a franchise LT since Campbell is staying (in this mock)
10 Den D. Bryant, WR—They land that WR that can replace Marshall
10 Jax J. Pierre-Paul, DE—Either a DT or Pass rusher. They go with the latter.
12 Mia R. McClain, ILB—Perfect fit for Nolan’s 3-4, his new P-Willy
13 SF CJ Spiller, RB—Top 10 after Combine, we pick, Caroll screams
14 Sea B. Bulaga, OT—They need an upgrade at OT.
15 NYG E. Thomas, S—Shore up their secondary.
16F Ten C. Dunlop, DE—Rises back to top after combine and they need a LDE
16F SF M. Iupati, OT/OG—Mayock: Can play anywhere on the line=VALUE!
18 Pit B. Campbell, OT—They need a LT and he has the most upside of any OT left
19 Atl T. Mays, S—Need a safety
20 Hou D. Williams, DT—Need some beef on that DL.
21 Cin G. Tate, WR—Need a WR to pair with Ocho.
22 NE S. Kindle, DE/OLB—Need to replace TBC
23 GB T. Williams, OT—Need to shore up the OL
24 Phi E. Griffen, DE—Need some pass rush
25 Bal B. LaFell, WR—Those WRs are old
26 AZ B. Graham, DE/OLB—They have old pass rushers
27 Dal J. Odrick, DT/NT—Need some depth for Ratliff
28 SD B. Spikes, ILB—Need an upgrade in the ILBs
29 NYJ J. Hughes, OLB/DE—Time to replace Golston.
30 Min B. Price, DT—They need fattie in the middle as the DL is old.
31 NO S. Weatherspoon, LB—No DE worth it here, so LB for depth
32 Ind V. Ducasse, OT/OG—They only get better on their line.

Round 2
33 StL C. McCoy, QB—They get their franchise QB here.
34 Det J. Best, RB/RS—Smith is recovering from injury…great value.
35 TB A. Benn, WR—A. Bryant is a FA and who else for Freeman?
36 KC R. Sapp, DE/OLB—Haley gets his WILL for the 3-4
37 Was C. Brown, OT—They need to upgrade their OL
38 Cle D. Thomas, WR—Need to improve WRs
39 Oak N. Bowman, LB—Another piece to the D
40 Sea D. Williams, WR—Caroll gets one of his own to pair w/TJ
41 Buf C. Wootton, DT/DE—Add some depth and talent to the DL
42 TB J. Dwyer, RB—Need someone to carry the rock
43 Mia G. Hardy, DE/OLB—They need some pass rush depth and youth
44 NE P. Robinson, CB—Great value in a place of need
45 Den C. Jones, S—Provide depth along the secondary to go aside
46 NYG A. Jones, DT—Need depth on the DL
47 NE M. Pouncey, C/OG—Need help along the OL and he can play both
48 Car D. Warren, CB—They need to upgrade secondary
49 SF K. Wilson, CB—Allows us to upgrade secondary and can play ST


Round 3 K. Calloway, OT—We land our starting RT here, what value!
Round 4 K. Chancellor, SS—Will be our next M. Lewis, will play ST
Round 5 B. Carter, OG—Someone to mold and provide great depth—I like this kid
Round 6 B. Sharpe, DE/OLB—Depth and ST
Round 7 K. Weston, NT—Depth and development


Speed kills in this league and we land one of the fastest playmakers to contribute immediately in Spiller. Then Iupati comes in as LOG while Calloway starts at RT giving Solari two fine OL specimens to develop. K. Wilson will compete for the nickle spot be used primarily in ST, but great value at that spot. One of my favorite safeties lit up the Shrine game and we land him to succeed M. Lewis. Within the year, he will be taking over for him. Another great value like Goldson.

The last three picks were for ST and development as I believe Singletary and Shotty will want it that way...increase talent in STs.

So there you have it.

Enjoy!
I like it
I approve of this mock.. I am warmining up to the idea of drafting Spiller and Iupati (as an OT).. Not sure Iupati will last to #16/17.. His name is cropping up a lot more often recently.. So we might end up with Bulaga or Williams instead.
Not bad at all, but i really hope you have them getting Peppers in FA or something to help out this pass rush. Them crushing the Cards, Rams and Lions don't make a solid pass rush imo.

What is interesting Dave, is that Iupati right now is having troubles at OT in the SB practices. If he continues that way, he won't be a top twenty pick, but a top 30 one instead. Still, I remember Mayock saying he can play all five positions, but his primary one would be OG.

If not, look for Spiller and Bulaga/Williams while drafting an OG in the second or third like Asamoah or Petrus.

I still want Spiller though...

Spiller would absolutely bring an X factor to the team we presently lack.. I get that.. I am just conflicted, knowing how much an improved OL would mean to the team.

I am right there with you man. Isn't funny how we are mostly wanting fatties as opposed to the skill positions.

That's what I am talking about! We here know the importance of those trenches and all we want is that ROT right now. But Ducasse, Iupati, Asamoah, Pouncey, Petrus, etc. make you want to grab them because they are so good inside especially given Baas' proneness to injury and this being his contract year too.

To me, depth wins championships, not D or O. One good player goes down and someone has to step up especially in the trenches.

That is why I wouldn't be surprised if we picked up two to three OLs in this draft. It certainly is one to do it in, huh?

He may can play all 5 positions but can he do it effectively is the question. I think he's gonna be a guard point blank. His measurable's and long ass arms makes folks want to try him OT but I don't think that will work out for him in the long run. I was all for OT then OG myself but i think Spiller than OT is much better value especially since I agree tha the Skins will pass on a OT allowing one guy to slip a bit further than he should.

I just hope that when #13 rolls around that there is more than 1 quality OT left on the board so that we can be certain that if we pick Spiller w/#13 there will be a Bulaga/Davis/Williams or someone left when we pick again at #16/17.. We just can't come out of of the 1st round without fixing the RT position.
This draft is as good as it gets. You are able to land

playmaker/return man
best OG.
Good speed CB in the 2nd
great value OT in the 3rd.
Great SS prospect as well in the 4th.

Awesome job Tico.

All you Spiller people is this guy just a gadget guy or can he eventually replace Gore at runningback?

He will never replace him, but he can succeed him. If Gore gets hurt again which he will as it is inevitable in today's NFL, both Spiller and Coffee become much better options than a combo of Coffee and Robinson, no?

Spiller can run between the tackles, but his preference is the outside. With he and Gore, we get that one-two punch especially with Spiller's speed and hands. He is also a good blocker on blitz pick up if I remember reading correctly.

Again, speed kills and he could do it in four positions KR, PR, RB and WR! He has played the slot and lined up on the edge...the Spiller Thread contains vids of such. Each time I look at that vid, I see some serious "juke" moves everytime, not just once. He's got "IT".

There is a reason that Caroll wanted Spiller for USC and I saw it first hand. Now, we are the ones to take Spiller away from him, again.

I really like that scenario!

So you think he can be an everydown back and eventually suceed Gore? That's the main question if your going to take him that high. Is he going to be a Reggie Bush type or can he play halfback fulltime?

Yes, I do. I see him being able to take the reigns over for Gore within 3 years.
Waiting for a RT until later Rds is completely contingent on Tony Pashos IMHO. If he resigns, and can come back and live up to his potential I can see it. The Niners have got to find a legit RT this year though, no questions asked.
