  • My First Mock

    Now that we have all of our coaches set in place, and a good idea about what defense we will be running, i figured it was finally time to make my first mock....flame away:salute!:

    Free Agency
    Sean Jones SS: Cleveland-very talented and athletic. would be an immediate upgrade and would start from day 1.

    Leonard Pope TE: Arizona- Nate jackson just cant stay healthy and mustard is nothing special. Pope is big (6-8, 260lbs) and young (25). would be a great redzone target and we would have one of the most dominant 3 TE sets in the league

    Mike Wright DE/T: New England- a versatile player that can play any position on the line. qualtity depth that can fill in incase of injury

    Gabe Watson NT: Arizona- a proven player who is young. he's a RFA so we'd likely give up a 4th rounder for him(its worth it). i do not trust the NT's in this draft and we'd know what we are getting with watson.

    2009 NFL Mock Draft
    1. Rey Maualuga ILB: USC- a perfect fit for a 3-4, he and DJ in the middle could be a VERY good combination

    2. Tyson Jackson DE: LSU- another 3-4 prospect. is great against the run and has potential to be a good pass rusher.

    3. James Davis RB: Clemson- a proven runner with good size/strength. a 4 year starter without alot of miles. he and hillis would be a very dangerous combination

    4. Traded to Arizona for Gabe Watson

    5. Kevin Ellison S: USC- not the most gifted athletically, however he is very smart and always is in position to make a play

    5. Phillip Hunt OLB: Houston- a good fit at 3-4 OLB, dominated against what some call week competion. thats why he lasts this far, but could be a very good rush backer in the mold of shawn merrimem.

    6. Sherrod Martin CB: Troy- an extremely gifted athlete, but level of competion and injury history could cause him to fall this far. played S in college, but will be asked to move in the pro's

    6/7. Pat White WR: West Virginia- QB in college but will have to move in the pro's. would be a great guy to learn under stockley and eventually replace him.

    7. Antonio Dixon NT: Miami- very raw, but has the size(6-3, 328) and athleticism to be a very effective tackle

    I would like to see a Safety earlier than the 5th even if we do sign Jones.

    Like the RM, Philip Hunt, and Dixon picks alot, the rest are very solid.

    Like the addition of Wright and Watson,

    but I doubt Pope will be allowed to walk from Arizona.

    Overall very good, I like the emphasis on the front 7, hopefully that will translate to better secondary play.

    But still, I think we really need a pure cover safety out of this draft, right now we really dont have a quality FS, Jones is a SS as is Barrett, and they dont have the range to cover the deep middle.

      barrett has the speed, but instincts are a different issue...maybe we can get by a year with an improved front seven. next years draft is loaded with elite FS's

      i love rashad johnson from alabama. but it would be hard to get him and tyson jackson.

      maybe sign chris canty in FA, then use a second on johnson instead of jackson

        I like it, I think you addressed the major needs for the team.

        But, Gabe Watson might not be that cheap. From what I read on the Cards message boards is that he might be a higher tendered RFA. That worries me but I would love the big man.

          yeah im worried about that too...i'd go as high as a 3rd, and hope james davis slips to the 4th...but if they ask for more than a 3rd it might be too much

            Why no love for this guy?

            I'm kinda surprised no one is talking about the safety from Baltimore not named Ed Reed that will be available this off-season. Of course I'm talking about Jim Leonhard. Although undersized at 5'8, Leonhard has shown during the 2nd half of the season and playoffs that he has a nose for the ball and has made game-changing plays on defense as well as the return game. At 26 he is still young, and I believe we could get him for relatively cheap, and would be one less position we would need to address earlier in the draft.

              Is he a FA? I thought BMore had signed him for a few years, I may be wrong...

              If he is I would love to pick up a guy like him, he's got good speed and a nose for the ball, although due to his lack of size he can get run over. I'm from Maryland and I watch the Ravens all the time, he's a jack of all trades, a real special teams ace.

                From everything I've read tonight he seems to be unrestricted. Even if i'm wrong, which i hope i'm not, Dawan Landry is restricted, so depending on the compensation the Ravens would require that could be another option as well. But i really do like Leonhard, he always seems to be around the ball, and can put a nice whack on people despite his size.

                  any thoughts/criticism/suggestions?:salute!:
                  yeah phillup hunt is a 4-3 RDE. he doesnt fit well as a 3-4 rush backer, he doenst have fluid hips or decnet coverage ability. He also is getting Day 1 stock approval so rd 5 is unlikely.....

                  Sherod Martin is a beast of a safety who is now getting serious day 1 hype as well as some second rd hype. he is doing quite well at senior bowl.....


                  also i dont like the pat white pick.....he doesnt project as a good Slot Wr right off the bat he is a project for WR. what we need is a slot WR to groom as stokleys replacemnt. we have a number 1 and 2 as well as as a back-up in chad jackson for them. what we dont have is a stokley back-up....Jacoby ford and mike thomas are some examples of good slot type recivers. Thomas fits better than ford but both would be great to our WR core.


                  Keep in mind Inetrior O-line is a need as it is and might become even a bigger need if weigman retires



                  i like the dixon pick and the seventh rd is solid value, but he could go undrafted....He could develop in to a very good Nt at the next level if he can get past his lack of focus and injury history

                    Your last statement is solid. Canty would be a solid addition and could instantly impact this team. Canty would take priority over Pope. That would allow us to address FS in the 2nd round if you are sold on taking a RB in the 3rd.

                      Agreed. Canty would be a welcome addition to this defense, freeing up your second rounder to spend on Johnson or Patrick Chung in the 2nd round. As long as either through FA or the first 2-3 round of the draft we solidify at least one starter in EACH level of the defense, i'm perfectly fine with taking a RB, depending on who is on the board at the time.
