My Christmas Mock


Merry Christmas Everyone!

I have a Christmas Mock that will make you drop your stockings
(if you are wearing any)

This mock involves a major trade.

We will trade Bryant McKinnie to the Raiders for their 2nd & 4th this year
.  They get a first time Pro Bowl left tackle who will be 31 next September and has 4 years left on his contract ...

9/8/2006: Signed a seven-year, $48.5 million contract extension through 2013. The deal includes $18.15 million guaranteed, $17.25 million of which was paid out in the first year. Another $5 million is available through incentives tied to Pro Bowls. 2009: $2.9 million, 2010: $4.6 million, 2011: $4.9 million, 2012: $4.5 million, 2013: $4 million, 2014: Free Agent

... none of the remaining years on his contract are guaranteed so the Raiders can release him if they want.  The franchise tag number for offensive tackles is 8.451 mil.

Why would we trade him?  Why not?  He is doing fairly well this year but he did have to get benched and this is a way to bring some youth to the offensive line.

Here goes the Christmas Mock ....

1. Jared Odrick Height: 6-5 | Weight: 306 | Position:DT

(Mother) Dunn's selection to the Walter Camp All-America squad in 1906. A relentless and tenacious leader for Penn State's stalwart defense, Odrick is a three-year starter who has been double teamed by every opponent throughout the season. He is ranked No. 8 in the Big Ten with 6.0 sacks for minus-45 yards. Odrick is fifth on the team with 41 tackles, has 10.0 tackles for loss (minus-56 yards), with one blocked field goal, one pass break-up and three quarterback hurries. The former Lebanon High School All-American has been instrumental in the Nittany Lions earning Top 10 national rankings in five of the six primary defensive statistical categories.

I contemplated taking Bruce Campbell OT Maryland if he is there but he has only been there in a couple of mocks.  If he is there then I would take him.  Then Mike Johnson, and maybe a different safety or defensive tackle at the bottom of round 2.  But for now, I will go with the hope we can get Odrick.  I know Odrick is just like KWill which is true but we need another guy like him to rotate with him and maybe KWill can assume the role of PWill when PWill leaves.

I know this does not address the QB situation.  I am personally hoping for us to sign Jason Campbell.  But if we don't and a QB falls to us in the first round, we can still grab him.  I would still take the two offensive linemen.

Here is a link to an article on cbssportsline.com where Prisco is picking Loadholt as All Pro and McKinnie as just missed ...

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/12703101/pro-bowl-picks-insiders-picks-for-miami-detour-game

Tackle: Jason Peters, Eagles (LT); Phil Loadholt, Vikings (RT).
Backup: Kareem McKenzie (RT), Giants.
Just missed: Bryant McKinnie, Vikings (LT); Jeremy Trueblood, Bucs (RT).
It's a down year for tackles in the NFC, which is why a rookie like Loadholt can nab a spot at right tackle.


So one of the new rookies can come in and play left tackle or Loadholt can switch over (he cant be worse than McKinnie plus he played it his last year at Oklahoma).  Also, Hicks can play there too until the rookies are ready.  Calloway can step in and play RT right away probably and Johnson can play right guard or groom to replace Hutchinson. 

To be honest, I almost put JD Walton C Baylor (Remington Award finalist) in the spot where I picked Alexander.  I am still considering it.  It depends on how Sullivan finishes

If this occurs our line would be Mike Johnson, Hutchinson, Sullivan, Herrera, Loadholt with Hicks, Calloway, & Cooper as the backups.  We would say bye bye to Cook and obviously McKinnie.

I like Peters because he can replace Evans or Guion, neither of whom has done much.  It will probably be Evans since he is a UFA.

I was thinking about putting Johnson as the third round pick and get a CB as the 4th round pick but I think the TOA likes the CBs right now and will try and resign Sapp and maybe even Paymah.

This is the draft to add some youth.

Well, Merry Christmas again and feel free to ridicule me at your will.

Remember though, we waited too long to trade Chester. 

Now is the time to get something for McKinnie before it is too late IMO.
