Lol you and me both brother. Same draft crush.

I like the mock, but don't love it. In a draft full of talented recievers, most in a century, I'd be pissed if we only got Ellington. Boldin is old, Crab could be gone next year, it would be foolish to not prepare for that with a draft full like this. DE is not a need to me, we got Tank, and Ian Williams coming in which means Dorsey can also play DE. TJE also looked good last year. With that said, it would be really hard to pass on Tuitt cause I love him too. And I agree with you on Bucannon, he'd be perfect to replace Bethea.
Yes you make some very good points for us drafting more than one receiver. In all my other mocks I had us going with two wideouts. I think I may edit this one and swap in another receiver.
As for DE not being a need, I think you're partially wrong there. It may not be an absolute need right at the moment, but it may in the next couple years and depth at DE is a need right now imo. First of all, you can never have too much depth at defensive line and a fresh pass rush is very beneficial for your teams success. Look at Seattles formula. Also, Carradine will eventually replace Justin, but who will end up replacing Mcdonald? I know we have some time to replace Mcdonald, but he did deal with an injury last year. Add to that that Tuitt is a straight beast and in my opinion would be the best player available at the slot were picking. Our draft philosophy is going best player on the board, with need factoring into that. We have a tendency to draft for future needs and we would have our defensive ends set for years to come with the selection of Tuitt. Dorsey is very solid and can play both end and nose tackle. I don't see anything special about TJE. He is serviceable at best. Ian Williams is still a question mark, although he reportedly looked good all throughout camp last year.
