Theres been a lot of talk about who we are drafting with the #3 overall pick in this years draft. With so many holes left to fill , I beleive big Reggie is about 98% sure he can work a trade or two early to ensure more picks. This is a mock draft I did last night and to me it would be a homerun for us. Ive looked at many different sites on player rankings so my picks arent too far off I beleive. As much as I would love, I dont have Star falling to us in the 6th round or any nonsense like that.
With Jake Long moving to St. Louis, Miami will be in need of another stud OT. I'm hoping they would make this trade to get OT Fisher from Central Michigan. Miami sends us their #12 , #54 (2nd round) and #146 (5th round) in exchange for the #3 pick. Next I have the Raiders trading with Minnasota because they have two first round picks. The Vikings lost Percy Harvin and I think they would love to jump ahead of TB, Car, STL, and PIT to get an elite receiver/kick returner.....Tavon Austin WR from WV. With the trade I have us sending them the #12 and #172 (one of our three 6th round picks). In return we get #23 pick , #52 (2nd round) and #102 (4th round). That would give us a total of 10 picks in this years draft.
