BFTB Mock Draft Picks 5-8

New, comments

 Cleveland Browns - The dog pound has mostly been filled with Poodles these days as the high flying offense of last season stumbled badly this season.  Derek Anderson & Company put up an average of 14.5 points per game as things went South quickly.  Since hiring Mangini the Browns have been cleaning house and clearly need help on both sides of the ball; they are also losing a slew of free agents.  They may be losing Safety Sean Jones; but there certainly isn't a safety worth taking this high.  The team could use a quality linebacker.  The SBN Blog has a discussion of the team picks here.


Team Stats - Game Averages

Pts Yrds Pass Rush
Off 14.5 249.1 (31st) 148.8 (31st) 100.3 (26th)
Def 21.9 356.5 (26th) 204.6 (14th) 151.9 (28th)

 


 

Cincinati Bengals- They are losing Houshmandzadeh and Ocho Cinco, so they will likely need replacements at wide receiver; but Crabtree has been the only wideout that has projected this high.  Their offensive line was woeful surrendering over 50 sacks on the year; a quality OT seems like a good match here, but a good pass rusher could work too.  The Bengals blog seems torn between Oline and a receiver.

Def 22.8 325.5 (12th) 205.4 (15th) 120.1 (21st)

 

Oakland Raiders - The Raiders went for a lot of big money free agents and came up empty.  They did manage to retain Seabass and Asomugha, two of their key players but at an enormous cost.  Watching the Chargers play them; their offensive line was pourous and their receivers were working hard to achieve adequacy.  Their defensive line clearly struggled against the rush; but they have a decent secondary.  Rayder K looks at defensive tackles over at Silver and Black Pride.

Jacksonville Jaguars - I was convinced the Jaguars were for real last year; finding them with the number eight pick is a real surprise.  They seem to be on the low mid range in most categories.  The Jaguars released Drayton Florence, WR Jerry Porter and RB Fred Taylor so all those positions could be targets.  Their left tackle on the offensive line was also spotty and had some off field incidents.  Here is the Big Cat Country take on some of the mocks.

There it is, just put your picks for 5-8 in the comments.  Anybody who still wants to make their picks can just pick all eight.  Here is last weeks summary.
