Originally posted by toppdogg32:Not down with the O-line picks. If we pick C Richburg he and Kilgore lock up the center position. If he starts then Kilgore joins Looney backing up the guard position so why are we drafting a Guard when we will have 2 capable back-ups?

Post senior bowl mock up. No trades in this one. Some familiar faces and new additions. Most dramatic improvement from guys i had us drafting in previous mocks is that of Dakota Dozier. Went from having him as a seventh rounder in previous mocks, to a third rounder. No high SS pick based on the assumption we resign Whitner.
1. Jason Verrett- CB- TCU- 5-10, 176 Sr.
2a. Davante Adams- WR- Fresno St.- 6-2, 216 rSO (likely have to trade up some to get him IMO)
2b. Morgan Moses- OT- Virginia- 6-6, 330 Sr.
3a. Weston Richburg- C- Colorado St.- 6-4 300- rSr
3b, Walt Aikens- CB- Liberty- 6-1 205, Sr
3c. Dakota Dozier- OG- Furman- 6-4, 312- rSr
4. David Fales- QB- San Jose St.- 6-2, 220- Sr
5. Jalen Saunders- WR/PR/KR- Oklahoma- 5-9 164, Sr-
6. Vinnie Sunseri- DB/ST- Alabama- 6-0, 210 Jr.
7a. Gator Hoskins- FB/TE/HB- Marshal- 6-1 244- rJr-
7b. Christian Bryant- S- 5-9, 193, Sr, Ohio State
7c. Stephon Robertson- LB- James Madison- 5-11 220, rSr
7d. Ben Gardner- DE- Stanford- 6-4, 277, Sr
I like all, GOOD DRAFT!, I would only change Adams, as we need a sure thing at WR- no projects, no iffy whiffy;s no more. We already have Bubba, so we don't need Sunseri. Need a guy like Loston (or that caliber) at Safety earlier. The kid from Nevada is better than the Furman kid,switch them. I wouldn't cry if we had this draft tho, but I'd make my changes on it.
Why are we drafting an OT in the 2nd round? Boone can play tackle if needed and we drafted an OT last year and he spent the season on the practice squad so that should handle depth. We probably will lose Whitner so that would be a good spot for a safety. I don't see him getting a 3-4 year deal because he will want a lot. If we don't need a safety how about a stud DT there? Top picks should either start or rotate in with the potential to become a starter. Not just ride the pines unless someone gets hurt. We are kind of locked up at OT for years to come.
