Really? I thought this has been the best one I've seen on this site so far.
Other ones seem very very unrealistic (for ex: Getting OG Mankins, CB Joseph and Andrwe Luck).
This has been the most realistic mock draft ive seen so far.
Thanks, and no problem, guys. Not everyone will like and agree with every prospect or move made. That's one reason why the draft is fun... so many differing opinions floating around. Yes, definitely didn't want to stack the deck by adding crazy good FAs just to please everyone.
- The QB situation is a tough one. I'm perfectly fine with waving g'bye to Alex. Problem is, he really is the best QB on our roster... and I'm not impressed with some of the QB options we could bring in. It's not ideal... probably won't happen... but I see no real solutions going into 2011.
- I place huge portions of blame for our problems... QB, OL, pass rush, and secondary... on the coaching. So we fix that, and these players will up their play.
Once again, great info and pick oldman9er
Only negative I have is bringing back Alex. I know he's the most talented QB we got (threw up a lil bit just saying that
), but the strained relationship between the fanbase and Alex has gone past he point of no return. Even IF he can put up Brady or Rivers numbers next year, first sign of trouble and the "We want Blaine" chant will rumble throughout the Stick...
I'm a little unsure about the Gabbert pick, especially after the Nebraska, Texas Tech, and Iowa games this year. He seems to disappear at the most key moments of the biggest games, either an INT or a badly thrown pass, but I think that may be due to him feeling he has to make the play, which is easily fixed with proper coaching.
But, watching him against Oklahoma, Kansas, and San Diego State this year, he shows a lot of promise. For his mediocre OL and relatively unknown WR core (lost Alexander this year but found T.J. Moe), he has a lot of accuracy and can throw both the short crossing route and deep ball.
He does seem like a 1 year project similar to Mallett, but the 6-5, 235lb QB with both movement and pocket presence, could be a damn good starter.
Outside of that, loooooooooooooooooooove the Beal, Mouton, and Claiborne picks. You also have some HUGE steals:
- Johnny Patrick: Third rounder with late 1st potential. Very physical and has a Greer-type feel (great #2 CB to move Spencer down...only reason why we keep Spencer is b/c he's the only CB in the NFL who knows how to guard Fitz)
- Matt Szczur: Potential to be the next great slot receiver. Possession WR with deceptive speed. Will have much to prove and feel he will.
- Brooks Reed: Can you say "Clay Mathews" carbon copy? With him and Smith as bookends, I feel sorry for the OTs having to protect the opposing QBs.
Finally, also wanted to commend you on the FA pick ups. I agree that we won't be picking up any marquee top tier names, but with Moore and Washington, we fix two of our biggest needs (CB depth and speedy WR).
Once again, kick-@$$ job oldman9er, definitely beats out my mock by a mile and looking forward to another one in the future
