Mock Draft 10.2

I messed up 10.1 so badly, I'll have to give it one more whirl. I'll do around 17-21 as our pick range. I'll do 1 3rd and 2 4ths for comp.

Round 1: Best Case- Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M. Do I honestly need to write nearly the same thing that I write every week I give us this kid? He's 6'5", has great hands, decent route running, and decent speed. Although we're not getting him in this draft, I'm really starting to come around on Marqise Lee. Before his injury, he was better than both Evans and Sammy Watkins. He has great speed, and just his draft status makes it seem like he could come here. He was formerly a high ranked prospect that is falling because of an injury. Seems like a typical Ozzie pick. Realistic Option- Jace Amaro, TE, Texas Tech. Amaro looks like he could be a great fit. He's a good receiving TE, and he could even go out to the slot. He gives us another 3rd down weapon, which Joe Flacco desperately needs.

Round 2: Best Case- Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington. I think a guy of this talent and magnitude is worth the risk. That DUI arrest has been over exaggerated, that's his only crime that I know of. While he hasn't had the best season, his QB just hasn't been throwing it to him. He still has great size and could easily become the best TE in this class. Realistic Option- Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt. I would have had him here every time, except I didn't think he'd be here. Now I'm thinking that he could be here, and he would be a great fit here. He's around 6'3", has great hands and route running, and has questionable speed. Does that remind you of anybody? Maybe his cousin Jerry Rice. And no, I'm not expecting him to be that good.

Round 3: Best Case- E.J. Gaines, CB, Missouri. While a bit small, he has good bulk and long arms to help make up for it. He probably could play on the outside or in the slot, whichever Webb doesn't play. Realistic Option- Bryan Stork, C, Florida State. He would be a very good center to replace Gino. Someone though in my previous mock (now deleted) thought Jensen would replace Gino. While I'm not putting all my faith into that, I'm thinking he has to be pretty good, if the coaches didn't put him on the IR. But until I know he's the real deal, I'm sticking with a C here.

Round 3 Comp: Best Case and Realistic Option- Kenny Ladler, S, Vanderbilt. This gives us our playmaking/FS while Elam goes to SS as the enforcer, where he is better suited.

Round 4 Comp: Best Case and Realistic Option- Seantrel Henderson, OL, Florida. He would be good with us, because he is best suited as a power RT, which is what we could use.

Round 4 Comp #2: Best Case- Tyler Larsen, C, Utah State. This is probably the best option to replace Gino that would be available. Realistic Option- Stanley Jean-Baptiste, CB, Nebraska. I love this kid because of his size and physical ability. If we just work with him a lot, he could become very good with us.

Round 6: Best Case and Realistic Option- Dri Archer, WR/KR/RB, Kent State. I want him now that I've watched him. He gives us a KR if Jacoby leaves. He reminds me of Tavon Austin. If he has a blazing 40 time though, I expect him to go much higher than this.
