As the draft draws closer , the combine , and workouts are out of the way ,we are getting a better idea where the prospects will be ranked , and will apparently be drafting before any free agency , here is my mock draft including , undrafted free agents .
Patrick-cb-Louisville- 5'11", 190 lbs , fast natural cover corner , excellent tackler , 49 tackles , 12 passes broken up , 5 ints , 1 forced fumble last year
Orlando Franklin-ot/g-Miami- 6'6" , 315 lbs ,a mean nasty lineman who thinks the jobs not done till he slams his opponet to the ground , at LT he gave Da'quan Bowers all he could handle though i believe he'll be a pro bowl RT , can play tackle or gaurd , fiitsreally well with what our new coach wants to do , Wisneiwski's gonna love this guy
Will Rackey-og-Lehigh , 312 lb , has been moving up since the shrine game , strong as an ox with flawless blocking technique
Tim Barnes-c-Missouri-6'4" , 310 lbs , comes off the line just destroying smaller defensive tackles , and can drop anchor on bull rushing nose tackles , stays on defenders , takes middle linebackers out of the play , though hes considered one of the best pass blockers at this position run blocking may be his strong suit .
Chris Conte-fs-Cal , 6'2" , 212 , good coverage skills , makes good reads , good open field tackler , takes good angles , still learning the position , has the athleticism Oakland likes .
Edmund Gates-wr-Abilene Christian ,6' , 185 , gets off the line , presses the corner , good speed , tracks the ball over either shoulder , long arms , extends to snatch the ball out of the air at its highest point , good concentration , wins jump balls , projected to be around in the 6th or 7th
Jabara Williams-olb-Stephen P. Austin , three straight 100 tackle seasons
Undrafted Free agents
Weslye Sauders-te-S.Car ,6'5", 272 , ruled ineligible for the draft , reliable 3 down tight end may have the softest hands in the draft , a match up nightmare , also seems to like contact as a blocker , locks on to defenders and drives them backwards , could be the free agent steal of the year , much like Blount was for Tampa bay last year , and give the Raiders a solid option to turn to if Miller is lost to free agency in the next year or two.
Mark LeGree-fs-Appalachian S. 6' 212 , 22picks
Kris Adams-wr-UTEP, 6'3"; 200lbs , another Oakland speedster 22.8 ypc
Chris Matthews-wr-Kentucky ,6'5" 220 , 57 catches , 897 yds , 9 tds as a senior , could give us another large reciever to fill the void left when Shillenz is out ,
Darren Evans-rb-VT , 6' 220 , 22 tds playing behind Ryan Williams
Mike Hartline-qb- Kentucky ,6'5 , 215 , career ending suspension , but has the arm strength to get the ball in tight spaces , accuratete on corner routes , and the deep ball , nice touch on the deep pass , looks the safety off and sells the screen , will stand in and take a hit, will take allot of work learning how to get through progressions at this level , but has the arm Oakland loves
