Yes, another mock draft

Round 1: QB Teddy Bridgewater (Louisville)

- Yes, I know Gus has said he is willing to start Henne and sit whatever QB he drafts behind Henne for up to an entire season. I think Gus is kind of speaking in coded language here: I interpret this as less an endorsement of Henne and more him saying that he isn’t going to force a QB with the 3rd overall selection, and he is willing to wait for a more developmental type player like Mettenberger or Fales in the mid-rounds.

But if Bridgewater is on the board, and especially if Clowney has already been taken, we take a shot on him and expect him to beat out Henne in camp. He reminds me a lot of Matt Ryan, another QB who taken 3rd overall and is smart and accurate but thinner than ideal. Ignore his pro day concerns, the fact that he looks better in a game wearing full pads and a helmet with a pass rush barreling towards him than at practice should be a plus after years of the opposite being true with Gabbert.

Round 2: LG Xavier Su’a Filo (UCLA)

- Su’a Filo is an athletic guard who should fit nicely into the zone blocking scheme and can start immediately playing left side with Beadles in at right. There is a good chance Seattle takes him with the 32nd overall selection considering their o-line concerns, but they might spring for an outside WR like Kelvin Benjamin to pair with Harvin in the slot.

Round 3: oWR Donte Moncrief (Ole Miss)

- With Blackmon in limbo and Shorts III in a contract year with his own set of concerns regarding injuries and his drop rate, Moncreif gives a much needed glimmer of hope for our outside receiving corps. He is a ridiculous athlete: at 6’ 2’ 220 lbs he ran a 4.40 forty and posted an 11’ broad jump.

Round 4: C Bryan Stork (FSU)

Round 4: 1tDT Daniel McCullers (Tennessee)

Round 5: LEO Prince Shembo (Notre Dame)

Round 5: TE Crockett Gilmore (Colorado State)

Round 5: oWR TJ Jones (Notre Dame)

Round 6: OG Russell Bodine (North Carolina)

Round 6: LEO Aaron Lynch (USF)

Round 7: sWR Jalen Saunders (Oklahoma)
