WF Big Board Mock Draft

In the current boredom which surrounds this period of awaiting the Super Bowl and then the subsequent over-hyped combine, FA period, and draft - I decided to make a mock draft based on what I believe is a really accurate Big Board.

Walter Football - Walter Cherepinski (affirmed Raider basher from the AD period) has really made some good and congenial comments on why he has us drafting whom in his most recent mock draft.

I decided to make a four rounder using his own big board as I hate - HATE the Taj Boyd selection in the third (IMO he is a 5th rounder at best)

So here it goes:

1. Sammy Watkins WR - Clemson At #5 we get the #4 rated overall prospect (he is number 3 on my own board). Good value here - instant day one difference maker. I would not be sad if this were Matthews, Barr, Clowney or Mack.

2. Aaron Donald DT - Pittsburgh. At number #36 we get the #27 ranked prospect who falls due to QB needs of various teams and the propensity of over-reaching by certain organizations. I also like David Carr, Trent Murphy, Scott Crichton, Dom Easley, and Kyle Van Noy at this pick.

3. Stanley Jean-Baptiste - CB/S Nebraska At this point in the draft I am looking for athleticism and size in a positon like CB to counter the larger WR's of our opponents. WF has him going at 64 to Seachickens (replacing Browner) - while this could be true, there are enough questions about his rawness to push him into round three. I also like Tre Mason, Wil Sutton, Jeremiah Attachou at this slot

4. Jimmy Ward S N. Illinois - I this pick here in round four. He really shined at the Senior Bowl flashing some major versatility (DA buzz word) - I full expect him to shoot up the boards if he shines at combine, but for now I take him here. I also like DeAnthony Thomas, Josh Mauro, the free falling Cyril Richardson (a first round prospect for most of this year - exposed at Senior Bowl), Daniel McCullers and Jackson Jeffcoat here.

I chose all value picks based on the WF ratings - trying to pose the BPA ideal over the draft. Any Raider fan could say these are areas of need - though not all the "pressing" ones. However, as RM put it - nothing is safe - we have needs everywhere.

What do you think, nation?
