Small school mock draft

Since this coaching staff has a love affair with the small program players, here's a look at a mock draft chock full. Payton, pay attention.

Round 1- Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie - CB - Tennessee State
Nothing needs to be said. Highest acclaimed player from a small school this year.
Round 2- Joe Flacco - QB - Delaware
Prototypical size and arm strength, but will be a project.
Round 3- Jerome Simpson - WR - Coastal Carolina
Good size and hands, quick, but not fast.
Round 4- N/A
Round 5- Curtis Johnson - OLB - Clark
Can wreck havoc in the backfield, and apply pressure to the QB. Lacks ideal weight.
Round 6- Corey Lynch - FS - Appalachian State
Good anticipation, but needs to add strength. Will not shy away from contact.
Round 7- Corey Clark - DT - Jackson State
Good size, strength, and athleticism. Will he play every down and bring his game to the next level?

Not sure why you have an N/A for the fourth round. Vilma was a conditional 4th pick in the 2009 draft. Otherwise, none of those look like bad selections.

Re: Small school mock draft

Do your homework...

NEW YORK (AP)—The New York Jets traded linebacker Jonathan Vilma to the New Orleans Saints on Friday for a fourth-round draft pick in April.
If Vilma reaches certain playtime incentives and signs a contract extension with New Orleans, New York would instead receive a second- or third-round pick in 2009. The Jets would then give the Saints their fourth-round pick next year.

Re: Small school mock draft

That was a confusing trade though, because it was originally misreported. It had me wondering (along with a lot of other members) which of the various reports was accurate.
