For the life of me, I cannot understand this board's fascination with Brandon Banks, a receiver who did things in college that he's just not going to be able to do in the NFL.
He's an injury just waiting to happen. Folks, stay as far away from the guy as possible.
Pat, you tend to do a good job on these, but any mock containing Banks -- a 149 pound player with character concerns (arrested for assault and battery and unlawful possession of a stimulant) just doesn't work for me.
I don't see him getting drafted, or making an NFL roster for that matter.
Trying not to be too critical here but, I'm not a fan of Thomas or Capers that high. I think it's highly unlikely that Troup falls that far. He's an outstanding NT prospect that should go within the first four rounds.
I like the Deji Karim pick.
OTC, I really respect your opinion. Thanks for the feedback! To be honest, after the two 1st round picks, I started to get very confused. I know we need a right OT, but this draft is so crazy. I have no idea who could be there at #49? I could see Okung, T. Williams, Bulaga, A. Davis, B. Campbell, and C. Brown all going in the 1st round! So where does that leave us for the 2nd round? I know we could take Anthony Davis in round 1, but there are so many issues with that kid... NO THANK YOU, I'll pass!
Can you give me some ideas for a 2nd round OT? My problem is that a lot of these guys are so raw. We need someone who can step in now. I was also thinking that if we could get a good RT, we could kick Snyder inside to a backup OG. Your thoughts?
A lot of people tend to complain about Jordan Shipley, but I don't get it? The man is a very good, sure-handed WR who could also help us in the return game. Think about how many passes Vernon Davis or any of our other WRs have dropped, that's why I think we need a guy like Shipley! He's not flashy, but could really help Alex Smith (or any future QB).
For alot of this mock I just got confused. I wasn't sure who was going to fit where? I do have plans to redo this mock. Any ideas or suggestions? Again, thanks for the feedback OTC!
