Another, Final, Mock Draft

Round 1: QB Teddy Bridgewater (Louisville)

What’s that? Wait until the second round for Bridge? I don’t see it happening. If Bridgewater falls, he won’t make it past the Browns second 1st round pick. I’m in the minority I’m sure, but I doubt he makes it past the Vikings’ 8th overall selection.

We tried the "he has all the tools" sort of developmental QB in Gabbert, how about this time we try a QB who is not tall as a tree and does not have a Howitzer, but instead has tremendous poise in the pocket and the accuracy to set receivers up to pick up yards after the catch.

He’ll never be the next Peyton Manning, but he should be the next Matt Ryan. I would be fine with Johnny Football too, but I do prefer Bridge. Just, please, Lord, deliver us from Chad Henne.

Round 2: OG Joel Bitonio (Nevada)

Protect the Bridgewater. Su’a Filo will be gone by now, so we take the next best thing: Bitonio is an aggressive player who plays with a high motor and should be able to perform well in both run blocking and pass protection.

Round 3: C Marcus Martin (USC)

Martin may not be here, but with Richburg being the clear top center in the draft now, there is decent chance Martin falls to the third. If we can snag Bitonio and Martin this year, we can do for the interior o-line what we did for the secondary last year: fix it.

Round 4: WR Brandon Coleman (Rutgers)

This may be high for Coleman, but with Mike Evan’s size earning him a top 10 selection, I don’t see why the similarly-sized Coleman shouldn’t get a boost in his stock as well. We all know that with Blackmon gone, we need an outside receiver to play opposite Cecil and compliment Ace.

Round 4: WR TJ Jones (Notre Dame)

Back-to-back receivers? Why not? What Jones lacks in ideal size, he more than makes up for in his technical skills: his route-running ability and sure hands should make him a welcome addition to our receiving corps.

Round 5: OG Russell Bodine (North Carolina)

Round 5: FS Ed Reynolds (Stanford)

Round 5: LEO Prince Shembo (Notre Dame)

Round 6: CB Dontae Johnson (North Carolina State)

Round 6: 1tDT Zach Kerr (Delaware)

Round 7: SAM Derrell Johnson (East Carolina)
