1st Mock
« on: March 21, 2020, 02:53:59 PM »
 Expect Gutey to make a few more roster moves, here are some of the players I think could help us.

 1) Trade down
 2) WR Jalen Reagor- TCU
 2) ILB Willie Gay Jr- Mississippi St
 3) RB Zack Moss- Utah
 4) T/G Robert Hunt- Louisiana/Lafayette
 4) T/G Tyre Phillips- Mississippi St
 5) TE Dalton Keene- Virginia Tech
 6) CB Kindle Vildor- Georgia Southern
 6) WR Kendrick Rodgers- Texas A&M
 6) TE Devin Asiasi- UCLA
 7) QB Brian Lewerke- Michigan St
 7) TE/FB Charlie Woerner- Georgia

I think it's ok. Asiasi probably wouldn't make the roster, end up on the ps. I question if he would even make the roster in year 2. He's Richard Rodgers 2.0. For a 6th round pick that's ok. You are just taking BPA at that point in the draft. I like the double dip at wr.

 Three swings of the bat with late round picks at a position of need in the future? Perfectly logical to me, and probably many others. Where's your mock oh great draft guru?

 Thanks, wonder if we will be getting expanded roster size with the new 17 game vote. Gutey will make some more roster moves,won't be enough room on the roster for all these picks, would be good insurance and competition. Some would end up on the practice squad, unless the roster size does get expanded of course. Made a bunch of mocks, this was the one I wanted to post for now. Looking 2 years down the line on this mock.

The short answer to your question is "Yes".

Love your first five players picked!

Nice draft overall.

If available, I'd take QB Morgan over Lewerke…………….but that's just me.

The active roster remains at 53 for the coming season, the changes happen in 2021.

In defense of (IMO) overdrafting at TE, we have one poster who says that Asiati in the 6th is OK because he'd be PS one year then cut the next. So, knowingly wasting even a late round is OK? Why not try for a guy who might be able to at a minimum might be a ST's contributor? Say, a DB or LBer that might also surprise and become a viable backup? And as far as drafting a lot of guys for a future perceived area of need, why not go more heavily into another area, rather than three at the same position? Especially when you have a guy whose future is still ahead of him?

What I did like was the double dip at T. The team really needs someone to step up and replace Bulaga with someone better than Wagner. I'd also switch the rounds for the drafting of the RB, going with another position, especially defense, in the third and adding a RB in the sixth. And, no, I never styled myself as a "great draft guru." And it is rare for me to even comment on the players chosen. What interests me is the position being addressed, and the current and future need, depth and ST's ability. If a guy doesn't check any of those boxes, then why draft them? And if you really want to project a future need, here is a list of the best college kickers. Note that some of them are still sophomores, so we could keep an eye on them, as they would likely not enter the draft for another two years- right about the time when Crosby probably will need to be replaced.

 Thanks Danno, glad someone can see what I see in this mock. Thought I would be the first guy to take the heat for taking WG-Jr in the 2nd, haven't seen anything anywhere where he ranked that high yet. Morgan has some hype, doubt he lasts that long, liked his prospect primer. Want to give you props, your FA crystal ball has been spot on over the last couple years, very impressive. Also, haven't seen many mocks from you, they paying you not to make mocks?  hysterical

 Thanks RT, too bad it wasn't negotiated to start the roster additions this year. An extra year jump on that, having more experienced players, would have been a good thing for league quality and safety.

     Well, it's kinda rude to just jump in a thread and say what you said. If you looked at the projected roster spots up for grabs and went to something as simple as combine tracker and read quick profiles you would see why I drafted what I did. In reality, like I said, there will probably be a couple more additions to the roster, and surely if Gutey sees players in the later rounds he really likes he will trade up. There are some sweet spots where the position talent could really come into play, like RB in the 3rd, OL in the 4th. Players that will be too good to pass up and be the right choice for the future. Sure, Woerner is probably an UDFA, could be a better choice there, but doubtful the last pick would beat out some of the players they have been grooming on the practice squad, some on which were draft picks. And if a round 6 pick ends up being Richard Rodgers and our TE 3-4, that's gold.

    Didn't mean to be rude. It just seemed to be an overdrafting at one position, where at most, it'd usually be one TE on the field, and sometimes two. And as I wrote earlier, I never offer a mock draft, and rarely comment on individuals, just positions that are drafted. No offense meant.

     It's OK Ricky, just trying to wrap my brain around different scenarios. Excited to get a good group of players from the draft to feed off the energy this new team has.
