1st Round Mock (top 17)

I love this mock. I do hope we draft Spiller, but the thought of having Willis and MClain as our ILB is just scary no dought could go down in history as best ever.
The second pick is a webzone fav. I honestly feel we draft OT in that position, but Sing, stressed all year about poor line play and he always complained about the guards.
Pending how free agency works out (I feel we will be quiet this year). I agree 100% about this being a possible outcome and I would not be upset about it.
Well done

Thank you. Much appreciated
i really really really dont want to spend a 1st rder on a ilb, i dont care if its even mcclain. i hope we end up with spiller and best available olineman

Pretty bad mock. And how is Haden a local kid he's from Maryland?

He plays for Florida... I figured that was pretty obvious. Can you tell me which part of the mock you don't like? Keep in mind that this is a prediction of what I think WILL happen, not what I WOULD DO. I would love to defend each and every pick

That doesn't make him a local guy. a local guy would be a guy who played high school ball and college ball and is from that state. Somebody folks from the state identify with. Nobody sees him as a local guy being that he is from Maryland. Picking Mclain is just ridiculous imo with this team having more pressing needs. And nothing against Iupati but I'd much rather draft a OT than a OG in the 1st round. It just makes no sense to me.
Would rather Spiller over McClain

I was trying to stick to what I think WILL happen, not what I think most people WANT to happen. Singletary stated last year that had Crabtree not fallen, the pick would be between Maualuga and Oher. McCloughan wanted Maualuga in the 2nd, and several years back contemplated taking Lofton with the 1st round pick. This all happened while Willis was on the team. Having said this, it needs to be stated that these were not half the prospects that McClain is. Also, McClain fills a huge void that neither Lofton or Maualuga could fill....he calls defenses. Singletary keeps pushing Willis into having the green dot, but this has not been his strong point. He's strong, fast, athletic, instinctive, and ferocious, but he is not the guy to call defenses. If the team was going to draft a good, not great MLB who does not call the defenses (a need) at #10 last year, why would they not draft a great ILB who does call defenses, at #13 this year, especially with Spikes being a year older/less productive than last year, and Willis making an even stronger case for not being the defensive QB that Singletary wants on the team? Please defend your position, from the standpoint of why it doesn't make sense to you that the team would do that.
How does Seattle have two picks? What did they trade Denver for? Can someone refresh my memory.

Last year's second round pick, used to select Alphonso Smith from Wake Forest

like I said, I'll defend every pick here from a "likely to happen" stand point. You said this "makes no sense" to you. Did you want to elaborate on why not, or has my explination changed your opinion?

ok thanks bro
In this scenario, Veldheer in the 2nd (if he's still available).

2) Veldheer
3) Arenas
4) Myron Rolle
5) Brandon Banks
6) Chris Marinelli

This is yet another non-flashy draft, but it does shore up the O-line with 2 very talented (albeit raw) starters, and 1 backup. Adds depth to the O-line and secondary, and selects 2 excellent return specialists (PR and KR).

Remaining areas of need:

QB, DE, OLB, SS, CB
