First Mock-No specifics
Posted 24 January 2013 - 01:21 PM
Matt Elam-Safety UF 5'10 200
This kid is a beast and if he has a good combine, he won't make it past 20. I don't care what the "experts" say, Elam is the best all-around safety in the draft. He can cover, is great in run support, and hits like a train.
I don't know much about the CBs after Banks, Rhodes, and Milliner but I would like to see a CB drafted here.
Jelani Jenkins- OLB UF 6'0 240
I doubt he makes it here but Jenkins is very fast, and he is a good blitzer. He's pretty good in coverage, not outstanding but solid.
Rick Wagner- OT Wisconsin 6'6 310
I have no idea about lineman rankings, but Wisconsin is known for producing solid linemen
Collin Klein- QB Kansas State 6'5 220
Not outstanding, but not terrible. Good competition for Foles.
Rodney Smith- WR FSU 6'5 220
He's 6'5. That's about all I know about him.
Ray Ray Armstrong- FS Miami 6'4 225
Did not play a single football game in 2012 because of eligibility issues stemming from receving benefits or some whatnot. Much like our Bryce Brown pick last year, I think Armstrong can be a diamond in the rough.
Obviously I went heavy on defense, and I'm sure many of you are questioning why I didn't go with a lineman early. Well we have 3 starters coming back from injuries, so I'm confident we will be stronger there. Defense (more specifically the secondary) is still going to be awful. Safety, IMO, is the biggest need on this team. We have absolutely no quality there.
Also, every pick after Jenkins is really a crapshoot for me. I have no idea about any of those guys,I just found some rankings. And to be honest, I didn't see the projected rounds until I had gotten to Klein. It got easier after that

Can everyone take a second to pay attention to the thread title? NO. SPECIFICS. I can't predict when they're going to pick certain people, so I didn't. I specifically said
because of your exact responses. Come on. You all are smarter than that.

Having watched Logan Ryan's entire career, he's a very solid prospect. Long arms, solid coverage skills, good speed. The only thing I think he can improve on in his ability to get his head turned around on the deep ball and make a play. If he can improve on that, sky's the limit. Could also improve on tackling a bit. Make no mistake though, Ryan can be a clutch player, a ball-hawk at times and I've seen him shut down the opposing team's #1 receiver on many occasions.

I liked what I saw on tape. Couldnt agree more with you that he does need a little improvement in some areas. I would like to see this kid an Eagle green next year though.

I believe if we don't pick him in the 2nd round, he'll be gone by our early 3rd round pick. Just don't know if CB will be that big of a need for us...depending on if we bring back DRC and what Kelly plans on doing w/ Nnamdi. If Nnamdi is moved to safety like some suggest and DRC is not retained...then yes Ryan would be a solid pickup in round 2...though I would look to move down into the middle of the 2nd and hope he falls while picking up an extra pick.

I would really like to see what Nnamdi could do at safety. Hes getting up there in age and other corners in the past of transitioned and have done very well. I am not sure if I would want DRC back. He just played so incosistent but then again our safeties were absolutely no help.
