Hey fans - true fans of THE Nation - RRRRRaiders Football is happening right before our eyes.
After the day one frenzy netted a clear plan of building the trenches and day two hosting D and more D only, I thought I might try my hand at a too early and probably very off base mock draft for my Silver and Black.
Using what i know of RM, DA and the staff - their focus on BPA and the like - here it goes.I have arranged these in order of my preference and given a minimum of 5 per round:
Round one playmaker - Clowney DE, Watkins WR, Mack LB, Manziel QB, Ealy DE (after trade down tagreted)
Round two playmaker - Carr QB, Crichton DE, Saferian-Jenkins TE, Roby CB, Benjamin WR, Murphy DE/OLB
Round three targeted player - McCarron QB, Sankey RB, Jackson G, Matthews WR, Reynolds S
Round four target position - McCullers DT, Gardner DE, Easly DE/DT, West RB, Thomas WR/RB/ST, Clarke DE/DT
Round six BPA - Reid DT, Purifoy, DB, Starr OLB, Urschel G, Reynolds, CB, Hart DT, Archer WR/ST
Round seven (two picks) - Groy G, Thomas QB, Price QB, Gallon WR, Allen CB, Lyerla TE, Shembo LB, Sirles, OL, Atkinson RB, Saunders WR/PR
It will just be fun to see if any - any one of these is actually picked by King Reggie. Obvious to me from last two year is that they will target a few players in the lower rounds, but all in all - they like to take the player rated highest on their board. So, we will see.
How would you rank this my brethren - on a scale of one to ten - do you think I am close in any approximation? Why or why not?
