Mock Draft 3.0

I'm going again. And I'm changing my projections More to a mid-to late 1st round pick because its not looking like 27-32 right now. And I'm going to do best case and realistic. And I know we traded a 4th and a 5th for Eugene Monroe, but I'm pretty sure we're going to have at least 1 4th and 5th comp pick, so I'll still list those rounds.

1st round- Best Case: Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington. Drafts are confusing with this guy. I've seen him as high as in the single digits all the way down to the 2nd round. It's very varied with this guy. I love his talent and him and Pitta, along with Torrey and one more receiver, would be a good receiving core. Realistic Case: Eric Ebron, TE, UNC. He is another good TE that would be another weapon for Flacco and he has one bonus quality. While he isn't amazing at it, he has shown that he can block pretty well. He is inconsistent with it right now, but it has the potential to be a plus attribute with him.

2nd round- Best Case: Yawin Smallwood, ILB, Conneticut. This gives us our tackling LB to go with Arthur Brown in the middle and it is great value here. Realistic Case: Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers. Here would be a great compliment to Torrey Smith. He is 6'6" and has good hands. The only question is speed. I think he will be fine because he is big enough to get some separation and we have plenty of speed threats on offense. And there are plenty of receivers who aren't the fastest that do good.

3rd round- Best Case: Kasen Williams, WR, Washington. It's actually a coincidence that I have 2 players from Washington. He has the size and he has the hops and I think his speed is good enough to draft him to complement Torrey Smith. Realistic Case: Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford. I am a big fan of Shayne Skov. He would be a great pick here and it would help us a lot. I was going to go corner here, but there wasn't one that had a realistic chance of being here and fitting the value.

4th round- Best Case and Realistic Option: Andre Hal, CB, Vanderbilt. I have looked at this guy recently and I love it. He is a projected 3rd to 5th rounder, and is expected to be around when our 4th round pick occurs. He has good size and has decent speed to fill the last of our 3 CB spots.

5th round- Best Case: Weston Richburg, C, Colarado State. If we could get Richburg here, I would be excited. He's been one of the best centers the past couple of years and there's a small chance he makes it here. I could imagine us taking him with one of our 4th round comp picks as well. Realistic Option: James Stone, C, Tennessee. He is a probably a better center than Gino and he has a quality that only a handful of teams (including Juan Castillo) are after. He is a good zone blocker. If we could have a center who knows a zone-block scheme being in the middle, it would probably help. I would still rather just abandon it right now. Also I'm not going to analyze him, but keep an eye out for Gabe Ikard.

6th round- Best Case: Tevin McDonald, S, Eastern Washington. He is a good player with off field problems that would be good if we got in the 6th round. We still probably need a safety. Realistic Option: Sean Parker, S, Washington. It honestly is a coincidence that Washington players keep on showing up. It's just that we need a safety and Parker is probably the best one that would be available at the time.

7th round- Best Case: Kerry Hyder, DT, Texas Tech. He is a decent DT and provides depth because we might lose Art Jones and we'd need a little extra depth behind Ngata, Canty, and Brandon Williams (I assume he takes over for Jones). Realistic Option: Beau Allen, DT, Wisconson. He is a good run stuffer and would be good depth behind everybody I mentioned above.
