Loading up at WR, a post Harvin mock.


Losing Percy has it's rewards for mock drafters, more draft picks and a whole different WR position to draft for.

Of course there will be more money for free agents too. I'd look for guards and CBs first in FA, myself.

Losing Percy and gaining another first round pick alters the balance of offense and defense allowing for more to be spent on WR IMHO. Although I may have gone a bit overboard with four, still, more chances to succeed.

WR blocking skills may have gotten too much emphasis and red flags too little, but we all have our biases.

So, without further ado and with thanks to Drafttek for using their latest 7 round draft to piggyback on, here is my first post-Percy mock draft:

1a) Tavon Austin WR

Not Percy but still darn good and MUCH cheaper 3rd down RB/slot WR.

1b) Johnathan Hankins DT

Solid prospect at DT to play with and perhaps, eventually, FOR, KWilliams.

2) Quinton Patton WR

Excellent route runner, good hands, willing blocker, did well at all star games.

3) Kiko Alonso ILB

Excelled in limited play at Oregon, can play OLB as well. Older red flags

4a) Da'Rick Rogers WR

Big, fast, tough, can catch and will block, not a "natural" receiver. Red flags.

4b) Zaviar Gooden OLB

Strictly Weakside and special teams help, but best combine results for LB

5) Duke Williams S

Big fish from little pond meets the NFL, talent is there but never tested much.

6) Duane Gratz CB

Has good size and speed for depth at CB, possible replacement for Jefferson.

7a) Dallas Thomas G

Promising prospect for G and backup T, a steal if he's here.

7b) Greg Reid CB

Replacement for Sherels, punt returner who can cover too. Red flags galore.

7c) Brandon Kaufman

WR Big (6-5) red zone/depth WR should have a role on Vikings.

So, enough with the drafting, let's get to the mocking.
