Default My Mock

I love the draft but do agree this season is not over, To break up some talk about the steelers i decided to look at what i would like as of now and before the combine. What do you think?

RD 1 - S Kenny Vaccaro, Texas Great pick at a position of need, playmaker that plays everywhere in the secondary, has size, speed and big play ability.
RD 2 (OAK ) DE Alex Okafor, Texas With M.J due for a contract and Geathers aging, and a big cap hit, I see Okafor as bpa at a position of need. He would be our young Justin Smith. Thanks OAK for 2 potential pro bowlers in Kirkpatrick & Okefor, for a noodle arm quitter in Palmer!!
RD 2 (2nd pick) Marcus Lattimore RB South Carolina, We will give BJGE another year, perfect for a potential top 15 pick to heal and take over in 2014.
RD 3 Rick Wagner OT Wisconsin With A. Smith due a big contracr and Whit aging, we need guys with talent grooming behind themÖ.I really like Zeitler, Robinson, Boling (all less then 2 yrs experience) I say add Zeitlerís running mate from Wisconsin. Wagner would fit the bill for either Tackle position in a couple yrs.
RD 4 Tyrann Mathieu CB LSU M.B always takes riskís and this dude is trouble but oozes with talent, projected to be better then college teammate
NOTE * Top 2 picks was from Texas and NO, Iím not a Texas fan but I am a fan of these 2 and M.L has shown before that he will draft 2 guys from same school in the same draft.
Lattimore (Injury risk) and Tyrann (Character) would be very risky, but M.B takes risk on potential pro bowlers that would be top 15 picks without any concerns. It also helps that M.L has proved heís pretty successful with troubled players. We have good young talent and imo can afford this risk.

RD 4 Tyrann Mathieu CB LSU M.B always takes risk’s and this dude is trouble but oozes with talent, projected to be better then college teammate
NOTE * Top 2 picks was from Texas and NO, I’m not a Texas fan but I am a fan of these 2 and M.L has shown before that he will draft 2 guys from same school in the same draft.

The only pick I like out of this is Okafor. He would be a steal in the second.
I like Vaccaro too, but I don't see how he has magically jumped into the first round in people's mocks the past week or so. He is projected to be a second-round talent. He is not heads above other similar safeties. I think a better projection would be to swap the Vaccaro and Okafor picks.

Definitely not a fan of the remaining three picks you have. Only worth taking a OT within the first three rounds if Smith leaves. If that's the case, I would take a first-round OT. If we took Lattimore before the fourth round, I would be livid. Like you said, the risk is definitely there. I think there are much safer picks in the second and third rounds for RBs that would fit even better than taking Lattimore. BJGE still has two more years with us (I think), so we could wait a year or two to find our primary RB. Finally, Mathieu is a playmaker for sure, but he may be the biggest risk out of the whole draft. I would take him a round later than what you have if he is still there.

You should change this mock title to Roll the Dice Mock heh.

Pulled the trigger early on several players and neglected the linebacker position.


Fairly realistic for the Bengals.

As far as pulling the trigger to early, maybe. I did look at a few different mocks and all players were projected where i put them. I could see Lattimore going in 3rd if health looks to be ok or 4th if theres questions. all the rest will not go any later then i projected unless its by a 1/2 round. Every player position I picked is a pos. of need, LB is still a position of need and i would like to address I do feel like Rey will be back along with Howard, Burfict, and I truly wouldnt be shocked to see Lamur starting soon. Say what you want....we will see.

but besides the Okafor pick, their are better options in every round that you mocked. I don't know what mocks you were looking at but Honey Badger was nowhere near the 4th, more like 6th and we should just stay away from him regardless.

four months to go before the draft. I will be shocked if he even runs a 40 for scouts. and running a straight line is a lot easier than making cuts. the health questions will remain huge. I still think he will be lucky to get drafted.
