This would be good. You're one of the few guys that actually included a TE in their mock. I'm for anyone that pushes Norris off the team and competes for Walker's spot. I really wouldn't mind if they used a higher pick on this than 7th.
It's also interesting that you took the guard in the 2nd and KR in the 3rd rather than vice versa. Most people would mock Mike Johnson ahead of John Jerry, I think. Why Jerry?
I certainly don't think that McCluster in the 2nd and an OG in the 3rd would be a bad way to go. In some ways I might even be happier (or at least more excited) with that. I guess I'm just a little skeptical about how much McCluster is going to bring to an NFL team beyond returning kicks. I know, he's a triple threat and all that. But at his size, I don't know if he's really going to have an impact at RB or WR. But Arenas, on the other hand, could be a good CB in the NFL. So I think getting him in the 3rd is greater value.
The other factor in my choices for round 2 and 3 was just the desire to fix the biggest flaw on our team as quickly as possible. The o line was, IMO, the major reason we didn't go to the playoffs last year. And it's not just because of the RT spot.
But again, I'm not 100% married to these picks. I'll probably do another mock soon with a totally different outlook. It's just fun trying to find new ways to fit the puzzle together.
