Mock Draft




So I really wanted to do a legit mock draft and hopefully have a nice little debate about how individual players fit into our system/who to draft where. I ended up with a quite absurd(at least in my opinion, maybe I just feel differently about many of the players) mock draft. Here is my draft(with a little bit of explaining myself), please critique it and give your opinions on what players you like if the draft was this week.

25 CB JUSTIN GILBERT OKLAHOMA STATE

Uhh, somehow Gilbert fell to me. Fuller, Dennard both went off the board before him. Was kind of an obvious pick and I think his athleticism would do wonders in our defense. He would immediately have the chance to compete for the #1 corner spot.

57 DE TRENT MURPHY STANFORD

Again, I think he is a steal(may be a re-occurring theme). He led the country in sacks last year(15), and i think he could easily transition to the pass rushing OLB position. He could play conditionally over the beginning of the season and learn from one of the best in the last decade(Freeney). Would be a huge part of our defense moving forward.

89 OT MORGAN MOSES UVA

Seems to be slipping down draft boards a bit lately, but would be solid value in the third round. Has the potential to be a very good left tackle. Think worst case scenario would be him evolving into a nice depth swing tackle. Actually I could think of worse, but just go with it.


125 G DAKOTA DOZIER FURMAN

Yeah I know, another O-Lineman. I am just getting started. Not many will object when I say that I think Clary is not the answer at RG. Dozier has played against a lower level of competition at Furman, so he definitely needs to acclimate to the NFL talent level. I see him as being solid depth to start the year and maybe taking Clary's spot at RG by the end of the season.


165 WR PAUL RICHARDSON COLORADO

Finally a WR! He has the speed to really stretch the defense vertically(4.40 40) and reminds me a little of a DJAX/Emannuel Sanders type player. He would be a good compliment to Keenan Allen, taking away some of the safety help with his speed. He is not a great blocker and seems to be small enough to get hurt. What he could bring would outweigh both of those I think.


201 C MARCUS MARTIN USC

What is this guy thinking with all these O-Lineman? We all know Hardwick only has a year or two left in him(hopefully more but doubt it). Now is the time to get his successor in the system. I think Martin is a third round talent, but him falling this far shows that anything can happen in the draft.


240 QB DUSTIN VAUGHN WEST TEXAS A&M

Only picked him because of this--> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGsJ5hpdjqs




So how do you guys like it? What would you change?

If you want to dismiss me for the draft being absurd, it is, we really have no idea what is going to happen.
