As Im sure many of you read, I made a free agency projection earlier this week about our 2011 offseason. But I wanted to add a mock draft to it as well but had too much info already on that page so I figured I'd add it here. Many may argue but I feel we are going to maneuver around the draft like last year. Trading down to get more picks is something I feel we are going to do.
Also to you people who are saying Hue is Al's new puppet and you miss tom, STFU! and be a SEAFAG fan. I love what Hue is doing with our staff and I am ecstatic about 2011. ALSO WILL SOMEBODY PLEASE TELL LECHLER TO STFU AND GTFOH IF YOU DONT WANNA BE HERE!
So to our 2011 revised Mock Draft pt. 2
2nd Round Pick 48th Overall traded to Philadelphia for the 55th overall pick and the 119th overall pick
-Having no 1st round pick and no extra picks in later rounds, I see us trading down as we did last year in the draft in the 2nd round. Philly has been rumored to be wanting a big WR to play opposite Desean Jackson and put Maclin at the slot. With Jonathan Baldwin being available no later than 50th overall, I see them trading up with us with them having 2 4th round picks. Plus if Wiz is taken like many think he will, I see us down to get have more of an oppurtunity to strike gold.
2nd Round Pick 55th Overall
Robert Sands 6'6 193 S West Virginia
-By his height and measurements he is an absolute monster, a beast in every sense of the word. He's huge, fast, a ball hawk, a hard hitter, loves football, and he i ssmart. He is projected a late 2nd round early 3rd pick. This kid is a dynamo and with that height and speed, Al is probably salivating at the possibility of drafting him. Sands may become a star in his rookie year, many compare him to an Ed Reed type player. With Branch and Huff struggling at times, I cant see us passing on this upgrade of a Safety. Plus I see Huff or Branch being traded draft day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0o1xMWqCow
3rd Round Pick 81st Overall TRADED to New England for the 92nd overall pick and the 124th Overall Pick
New England has a zillion picks this draft and I see them trading up with us trying to get another lineman with Mankins likely leaving. They also have 2 4th round picks.
3rd Round Pick 92nd Overall
Rashad Carmichael CB 5'11 186 Virginia Tech
-A speed demon and a great cover corner, VT says he has clocked in in the high 4.2's, and he is a true fearless competitor. As a Raider we pride ourselves on hard work and fire and that is all this kid. He is a great man to man mirroring corner, at times runs the Receivers route with him because of how hard he studies(Am i talking about Nnamdi). He's a true team player and the type of guy coaches and fans love on there team. He has some amazing potential at the CB position and I feel he'd be great at our Man to Man scheme. He is also a great tackler and has the ball skill sof a probowler. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCQ-56ME8gE
4th Round Pick 112th Overall
Benjaman Ijilana OT 6'4 320 Villanova
-Durable hard working athletic and agile lineman who can play 4 positions on the line. He is an exceptional pass blocker and a beast of a run blocker. With our PBS he should thrive with his strength power and athleticism. He started every game in college but was in the FCS so his value is just like Veldheer's that it will drop because of the competition he faces. But with his athleticism and strength. We may have found another 4th round gem. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1277439
4th Round Pick 119th Overall
DeAndre Brown WR 6'6 231 Southern Mississippi
-If there was ever the second coming of Calvin Johnson and a chance for us to redeem ourselves for passing on Calvin Johnson for JaWalrus it is this guy. Huge size, amazing ball skills, great hands, can outjump any defender in the NFL, very athletic, he has the makings of a Calvin Johnson clone. He will however drop in the draft because of the competition he has played and he broke his leg in college so people may see an injury prone player which he is not. To take this kid with a 4th round pick is a low risk CALVIN JOHNSON type reward. With his size speed and hands, there is absolutely no way Al or Hue pass this kid up. Watch his highlight videos, you will not be able to wait until April 30th lol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZ1yewoUSqk
4th Round Pick 124th Overall
Colin Kaepernick QB 6'6 220 Nevada
-Does this beast even need a description? You know his potential and so do, I cant see Al who loves QB's like this lettin ghim go somewhere else, plus he has a chance to learn a pro offense behind JC and under Hue and Al who could do wonders with him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jq1gL_Q-vO0
5th Round pick 145th Overall
Martin Parker DT 6'3 285 Richmond or Justin Rogers CB 5'10 182 Richmond
-Former University of Richmond DT Martin Parker was name the Defensive Player of the Game and former CB Justin Rogers started for the East, which rolled past the West, 25-8, at the East-West Shrine Game Saturday at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla. With a pair of sacks and a forced fumble, Parker led the way defensively for the East in the annual showcase for college seniors. The West managed just 14 yards rushing and had just eight first downs. There was buzz around both Parker and Rogers all week in Orlando, as various NFL draft experts called the Spiders' defensive tandem among the most "NFL ready" of the small-school players at the Shrine Game. Both players are headed to the NFL Scouting Combine in February. "My goal coming down here was just to play a solid game and just show the scouts, [and] show the people what I could do," Parker said. "It never crossed my mind that I would go out there and be defensive player of the game. I'm really thankful and grateful for it." Parker was a consensus First Team All-America for the Spiders after finishing his senior season with 96 tackles and 5.5 sacks. The versatile Rogers became just the second player in CAA Football history to earn First Team All-Conference honors in four-consecutive seasons after leading in the league in punt return average in 2010, finishing as the CAA's all-time leader in kickoff return yards and ranking third at Richmond in career interceptions (12). - Richmond football. Both are Monsters, both can be stars in the NFL
6th Round 176th Overall
Mason Foster LB 6'2 244 Washington
-Considered an "ascending" football player at the linebacker position. Considered a great tackler and an instictive player. He attacks the line of scrimmage very strongly but is rarely fooled by misdirection which was a huge problem for us. Hints the Miami and Houston game. He is a sure tackler which we need in our young LB group, plus he should definitely help our run defense with his relentless attack on the LOS. He is also a very good Forcefumble tackler. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1273119
7th Round pick 208th Overall
Chase Beeler C 6'3 285 Stanford
-Was the leading blocker for the 3 best rushing attacks in Stanford history. A great teammate and hard worker. He anchored a line that only allowed 7 sacks and blocked for next years UNANIMOUS 1st overall pick. Wiz coached him at Stanford and rumor has it that McGlockton who also coached him atStanford may join our staff too. Stanford players havent been rated highly because there is no flash for them and they are in the West Coast. But under the proper teaching and mentoring, if we land Mankins or even keep Gallery, he can become a steady starter in this league.
I feel thisdraft will greatly improve our team but the tough thing about this is this entire draft will be different if WIZ falls to us at 48. If he does, we definitely wont be trading down. So lets see, but if Wiz doesnt fall, this method of gaining more picks later may land us some picks and possible late round gems to fill all of our needs. I hope however any draft we do will lead us to a bully image of a team and to a playoff appearance this year.
I BELIEVE IN YOU HUE, LAND US WINSTON MOSS AND MAKE US A WINNER! WE BULLY OTHER TEAMS, NOT OUR WIVES AND ASSISTANT COACHES!
