Marv's 2.0 Mock Draft

Here I will be going into more detail, explaning best case, worst case and a reasonable projection. And I will be matching positions. I mean it like my best case would not have a receiver every round. If my best case 1st round is a receiver, my best case 2nd might be a CB or a TE or something.

1st Round Pick: Best Case: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson. We need a receiver and Sammy Watkins seems like the best receiver that has the possibility of landing in our range. It would give us a good weapon to complement Torrey. Worst Case: James Hurst: I'm not saying this would be a bad pick. I'm just saying this would not be our best option because it would probably mean we didn't resign Eugene Monroe. Realistic Option: Brandon Coleman WR Rutgers. He fills our need at receiver and while he's not as good as Watkins, he should still be a good receiver for our organization. I would hope this would be the 1st 1st round receiver we've ever hit on.

2nd Round Pick: Best Case: Colt Lyerla, TE, Oregon: Colt is a very good TE and he would be good for us wether we resigned Pitta or not. Just as long as we don't resign Ed Dickson. Worst Case: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech. We miss out on the top tier CB's and WR's and are stuck with a decent CB not really worth a 2nd rounder. But one thing Ozzie doesn't do is reach. So if we draft someone like this, I still would like it because I trust in Ozzie. Realistic Option: Jason Verrett, CB, TCU. We get a very good CB with good value in the 2nd round and we can plug him in with Webb and Jimmy

3rd Round Pick: Best Case: Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State. My best case draft still needs a CB and Justin Gilbert would be good in this slot. He is a good sized, standing at 6'0". With Gilbert, we could put Gilbert and Jimmy outside with Webb in the slot. Worst Case: Any receiver available. That is the worst case because I believe we need to adress receiver early and most of the good ones will be gone by now. Receiver NEEDS to get addressed in the 1st 2 rounds. Realistic Option: Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford. It looks like Skov will be available at our pick and he is a great fit. His run stuffing mentality will go great with Arthur Brown's coverage ability. Jameel McClain will be gone. Bynes doesn't seem like a very good starter. I'm not going to gamble on Rolando McClain coming back.

I'm going to quit with worst case here as there isn't really a worst case scenario for the 4th round

4th Round Pick (Comp): Best Case: Max Bullough, ILB, Michigan State. He would be a very good run stopper to go with Arthur Brown in coverage. Realistic Option: C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa. I might be pushing this a little bit, but I think we might be able to get him here. He is a good fit as a #2 TE and I would appreciate having him here.

5th Round Pick (Comp): Best Case: Nickoe Whitley, S, Mississippi State. If we manage to get him here, he should be a good safety to complement Elam. He is more of the FS type to go with Elam's SS skill set. Realistic Option: Tevin McDonald, S, Eastern Washington. He is a S with off the field problems and he would be a steal if we could develop him.

6th Round Pick: Best Case: Morgan Moses, RT, Virginia. He isn't the most capable pass protector but he is a good run blocker and will be aided by playing with the best RG out there. He probably wouldn't even start because we have Oher and Wagner if he leaves. Realistic Option: Daryl Williams, OT, Oklahoma. Decent in run and pass protection. He would provide fine depth.

7th round Pick: Best Case. Ray Drew, DL, Georgia. He looks like good D-Line depth at DE and possibly DT if he gains some weight. Realistic Option: Mister Cobble, DT, Kentucky. Decent Depth at D-Line. Good round 7 depth pick.

Now lets look at the positions of my 2 7 round mock drafts (The realistic and Best Case)

Best Case: WR, TE, CB, ILB, S, RT, DL.

Realistic: WR, CB, ILB, TE, S, OT, DT.

Those picks are filling our basic needs and I honestly would be happy with either drafts. I'm sure Ozzie wouldn't be happy with it, because he could obviously do better.
