Here we are, the week of the 2014 NFL Draft. Many things can happen on this night, here is my final synopsis of what I HONESTLY think will happen. This is the cream of the crop for my Mock Drafts.
1st trade, trade back with the Arizona Cardinals. They Selected Anthony Barr, we got in return there 1st,2nd and 3rd for this years draft which gives us alot of room to trade up.
Our First pick is...
ILB - CJ Mosley - Alabama, this guy is a bonafide 3 down linebacker. He is tough, instinctive, has speed , coverswell in Nickel formations and make a lot of plays on the ball not to mention a Leader. Compares to Lofa Tatupu,but a better athlete, tackler, coverage linebacker and leader.
Our second pick, we traded back into the first round with the New Orleans Aints. We selcted at 27th overall,
CB - Jason Verrett - TCU, although undersized he is blazing fast,explosive and hard hitting. His 39 inch vertical compensates for his height, or lack there of. VERY good ball skills,anticipation and recovery speed. Needs to gain some weight just so he is healthy consistently. He lists at 189, he could add 6-9 pounds and still play just as fast I think. He could be a top 3 CB in the draft but his size does not help, compares Favorably to Tyrann Mathieu but faster and a better overall athlete.
Our Third pick in the draft is,
Safety - Deone Bucannon - Washington State
This man is can do a whole lot of good in the back end of our secondary, this would give Zimmer TWO rangey, hard hitting, ball hawking safetys. With the selection of a smaller Corner earlier, adding size at other secondary Positions is helpful especially playing in the divison we do with Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffrey, Jordy Nelson and Calvin Johnson. He is big at 6'1 and 212, runs a 4.49 40 time and hits like a ton and a half of bricks. Needs to enhance his coverage ability, will be at full potential in about 1 1/2 years. Compares to Dashon Goldson of Tampa Bay.
Our Fourth pick is,
OG - Cyril Richardson - Baylor
Charlie Johnson was hot garbage last year, Cyril is a road grater guard and is above average in pass protection and gets good movement in the run game. Needs to lose about 15 pounds, can add a pep to his step and become a better pulling guard. This is somewhat of a stop gap pick, unless he has more upside than thought of right now by most.
Our Fifth pick is,
QB - Jimmy Garoppolo - Eastern Illinois University
This kid re-wrote Eastern Illinois record books, and is likely to become a better pro than one other QB that went to his college, Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboy fame, or infamy to some. Throws THE BEST FADE ROUTE I'VE EVER SEEN, damn its beautiful, really. Lightning fast release, above average accuracy and doesn't have ELITE arm strength like Mettenberger or Savage, but can suffice with quick decision making. Compares to well, Tony Romo, take that as you may.
Our Sixth pick is,
DT - Caraun Reid - Princeton
Why not add some more depth? This kid impressed at the senior bowl week, very quick off the ball and has active feet. Very Young, entered college as a freshman at 17 years old, still maturing physically. Very Smart ( goes to Princeton, duh). Great sack production from the interior D line, 17.5 sacks. Good length and Hand eye coordination,
Our Seventh pick is,
RB - Isaiah Crowell - Alabama State
Has good potential, former 5 star recruit left Georgia. Good vision, runs hard, finds seems and presses the line of scrimmage. Has great short area burst. Does not have elite speed, 4.58 40, goes down too easy on contact, needs some good coaching and could be a great backup.
Our LAST pick is,
QB - Brett Smith - Wyoming
But but but, what about Jimmy Football?, we just selected him! I'l tell you why, this Brett smith kid is way way way to underrated. Getting him here is great, he may be drafted at Jimmy's spot in the Fourth round. Ran a 4.59 40, has good height at 6'2 and weighs 205 pounds. I'm going to use a short paragraph that I got from CBS sports website, because they perfectly portray what is so great about this kid and his potential.
"Better athlete than given credit with deceiving mobility and very quick feet to be elusive in the pocket and avoid pressure. He has good-enough height and has worked hard to bulk up his frame, spending considerable time in the weight room. Smith scans the field quickly, works through his reads and does an excellent job recognizing soft spots in coverage pre-snap. Gutsy competitor who plays the game of football with a chip on his shoulder and he'll win over NFL coaches with his attitude, work ethic and overall football passion." This is also a excerpt from CBS Sports.
"If Smith played in the SEC or another major conference, he would be a much better known quarterback prospect. A native of Salem, Oregon, he re-wrote the high school record books and was the 2010 Gatorade Oregon Football Player of the Year, but didn't receive much attention from Pac 12 schools. His only FBS-level offers were San Jose State and Wyoming, choosing the Cowboys and starting from day one as a freshman.Smith leaves Wyoming with several school records, finishing his career with 76 touchdown passes and 97 scores overall. He set new career-bests in 2013 with 3,375 passing yards, a 62.7 completion percentage (293-for-467) and 29 passing touchdowns. On Nov. 23, Smith set a new Mountain West and Wyoming single-game record against Hawai'i with 640 yards of total offense (498 passing, 142 rushing) and eight total touchdowns (7 passing, 1 rushing).Although Smith played well personally, the 2013 season was a disappointment as Wyoming finished 5-7, losing five of its final six games. Smith's announcement to enter the NFL Draft came just weeks after Craig Bohl was named the new head coach at Wyoming, taking over for Dave Christensen, who was fired Dec. 1 after five seasons in Laramie.One of the 13 underclassmen who declared early and didn't receive a Combine invite, Smith doesn't have elite physical tools, but he's an athletic, confident and decisive passer who set numerous school and conference records in college. He needs to develop his decision-making, but is tough, gutsy and plays with a chip on his shoulder. Smith arrived at Wyoming as an underrated recruit and leaves Wyoming as an underrated NFL prospect."
There it is Folks, weeks of mock drafts and looking at players on YouTube, this is what I have come up with as the best possible draft "IMHO". I hope you enjoyed it and lets get this damn draft over with, and win a M F'ing Superbowl with our new and improved offense and defense.
