Jack'sAxe Mock Draft V. 1

Okay, I had just written this out, with small explanations and links, and than my computer decided to quit safari. So, out of frustration, and the fact that its late, I'll be giving links, but with some of my thoughts (no trades involved here). Okay, lets see how this goes:

 

2nd Round- Marcus Cannon, OT out of TCU. 6-5 , 358 lbs.

A very large dude, but also very athletic for his size. He excels at run blocking, but also is great at pass blocking. He has been an anchor for TCU's OL ever since he started (Like I said, I have done more, but my computer quit Safari [the Mac's internet explorer]). 

from nfldraftscout

2010 Season

Cannon is a three-time All-Mountain West Conference selection and a third-team All-American in 2010 … anchors an offensive line that led TCU to single-season records in touchdowns (70) and points scored (520) … instrumental in TCU tying for seventh nationally in allowingjust 0.75 sacks per game … has also helped the Horned Frogs rank fourth in scoring (43.3 points per game), seventh in the country in total offense (491.5 yards per game) and ninth in rushing (261.2 yards per game).

2009 Season

Had a dominant season at right tackle … a first-team All-Mountain West Conference selection … named a Top 10 Workout Warrior by ESPN.com … started all 13 games … did not allow a sack all season … neutralized Clemson standout defensive end Ricky Sapp in a 14-10 victory in Death Valley … got better by simply going against TCU two-time consensus All-America defensive end Jerry Hughes in practice each day.

 

This shows that he is consistent. Which is great. :)

 

3rd round- Buster Skrine, CB out of Chattanooga. 5-10 186 lbs.

From what I saw on film, is that not only does this guy have great speed, but great change of direction and body control. This can mean that he'll be very good in man coverage, as he can match up very well in terms of speed and route runners, and not to mention his 37" vertical from his combine(35" before his combine I believe).

4th Round- Mark Herzlich, OLB out of Boston College. 6-4, 244 lbs.

Herzlich has moved down to a 4th rounder now(with the very slight possibility of slipping to the 5th). Most people point out his illness. Let me point out to you guys, that even after his illness, Herzlich played at a high level anyways. He helped anchor BC as the top ranked defense in the NATION. He is an excellent cover LB, and he has superb awareness on both the run, pass, and play action. he is a leader, and a very sound investment, and will only get healthier imo.

5th Round- David Arkin, OG out of Missouri State. 6-5, 300 lbs.

His profile says he played both RG and LT, so thats a bit of versatility there. I hope he can build up a bit to fit the guard mold. He has quite a bit of power judging from this:

nfldraftscout:

2010 WALTER CAMP FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP SUBDIVISION ALL-AMERICA TEAM: OL David Arkin, Missouri State, Sr., started all 11 games for the Bears this season and earned All-Missouri Valley Football Conference first team and MVFC All-Academic first team distinction. He also graded out at 87 percent for his senior season with 82 knock-down blocks. He was named MSU Co-Player of the Year and Co-Offensive Player of the Year at the team's annual award banquet. - Missouri State football

6th Round- Evan Royster. RB out of Notre Dame. 6-0 205 lbs.

I like this guy because he looks balanced, and he seems to have very good vision. isnt powerful, or too shifty, but he gets through the open lanes, and if there are none, he is smart enough to go where he could get as much yards as possible. Last year, he was projected as a 1st rounder (dont know why he dropped), and this year he is a 6th rounder. I think we might need a 3 RB rotation soon, and he might be a pretty good replacement for Bush, although he is not as strong. He can also catch from the backfield.

 

He reminds me of Matt Forte, only slightly quicker, and slightly less strong: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tWf1NOPkL0

7th Round- Nathan Enderle. QB out of of Idaho. 6-4, 240 lbs.

Enderle is a pocket passer, who has improved each season in his college career. He stunk his first year, but he improved and improved each year, and he became a very good pocket passer: 

nfldraftscout:

His maturation continued in 2009 as he completed 61.5 percent of his passes, threw for 2,906 yards and connected for 22 touchdowns against only nine interceptions.

This is just a guy in the 4th round we should take a look at if Herzlich is not there, or if he would be available in the 5th. 

 

Jaiquawn Jarret, FS out of Temple. 6-0 198 lbs.

I know many of you like Sands, because of his height and athleticism. But me, personally, I like Jarret more. He is all around better than ands in both the pass and run imo. He is a great tackler, and has excellent intelligence. He has very good awareness, change of direction, and has very good read and reaction time.

I recommend watching more vid of the guy as well. Sometimes he might get taken out, but most of the time, he is there involved in the, tackle, or making a play. He reminds me of the rolando mcclain of temple's secondary.

 

I tried to get a couple OL, while dealing with our defense, and addressing a couple small needs like RB (Bush might leave) and QB. One of the reasons I grabbed cannon first was because he can immediately improve our OL right away. The issue of gallery leaving might be a problem, but I think we can stick Campbel in there, and hopefully he'll do what we need him to do, and stick a RG next to Cannon.
