ggp mock draft 1.0 - ggp - 12-09-2012 11:07 PM
Here is my first stab at it. I am trying to be realistic. I used the Walter football site to gauge availability for each round.
1. Jonathan Jenkins (DT) UGA, 6-3, 350lbs
Alternate: Kawann Short (DT) Purdue, 6-3, 310lbs
My feeling is that our defense needs a NT. We need a guy that can plug the middle and bull rush the passer. With a guy like that, the LB's will be freed up to make plays and Nolan will make good on his goal to have five guys with 5 sacks.
2. Eddie Lacy (RB) Alabama, 6-0, 220lbs
Alternate: Mike Gillislee (RB), UF, 5-11, 209lbs.
We have a pretty mundane group of RB's. Rodgers is OK, but we need a guy that can take the majority of the carries. I prefer Lacy becaus of his size, strength and ability to cut quickly. The run game must be priority.
3. Alex Hurst (OL), LSU, 6-6, 340lbs.
We need a RG. I don't like the guys on our roster and free agency should be used to add depth elsewhere. Hurst is a road grading blocker that can handle the RT position, but I want him at RG. He can be our MASTER BLASTER.
4. Phillip Thomas (S), Fresno State, 6-1, 215lbs.
We need serious depth at the Safety position. Thomas has seven interceptions this season. That means that he knows how to position himself to make plays. Turn overs are key.
5. Mister Cobble (DT), Kentucky, 6-0, 332lbs.
I am serious about stopping the run with one NT. This guy had a very strong junior season but has played through a nagging ankle injury this year. He still makes plays with quickness and a strong base. If Jerry stays, I would prefer he move to DE.
6. Phillip Lutzenkirchen (TE), Auburn, 6-5, 250lbs.
Playing for a lousy team and with a lousy QB really sucks. This guy hurt his hip, so that needs to be checked out. If he is going to be OK, he would be a great sleeper outlet receiver. He is a very good blocker and catches passes with his hands away from his body.
7. Andre Debose (WR/KR) UF, 5-11, 191.
He has a long way to go to establish himself as a NFL receiver, but he KR written all over him. His 4.38 speed makes him a threat to go all the way. Are you guys tired of Franks?
