Re: Mock Draft Simulator

If Norwood goes i would look at the likes of

Mike Davis, WR, Texas
Height: 6-0. Weight: 197.
Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round (2014): 3-5.
3/29/14: In 2013, Davis played well for Texas with 51 receptions for 727 yards and eight touchdowns. He could have produced more in his Longhorns career if they had had better quarterback play. As a junior, Davis recorded 57 receptions for 939 yards and seven scores. He put up some production as a sophomore (45-609) and freshman (47-478). Davis has some size and speed to his game. He played in the Senior Bowl, but didn't really impress. Davis didn't run at the Combine.

Cody Hoffman, WR, BYU
Height: 6-4. Weight: 223.
40 Time: 4.65.
Projected Round (2014): 4-6.
3/29/14: The senior missed the 2013 opener with a hamstring injury. Hoffman recorded 57 receptions for 894 yards and five touchdowns for the year. He hurt his draft stock by landing a one-game suspension, but had impressive games against Wisconsin (7-113) and Washington (12-167). In those games, Hoffman flashed some nice run-after-the-catch ability. He didn't run well at the Combine, so that hurts his ability to rise.

8/3/13: Hoffman was one of the most productive receivers in the nation in 2012, despite inconsistent quarterback play. He caught 100 passes for 1,248 yards with 11 touchdowns. Hoffman had some huge games against weak competition. He was held in check by Boise State and cornerback Jamar Taylor, catching just three balls for 21 yards.

Hoffman had solid production as a sophomore with 61 receptions for 943 yards and 10 touchdowns. He hauled in 42 catches for 527 yards and four scores in 2010.

Hoffman is a big receiver who uses his size well. He is a serious weapon in the red zone as he runs good routes and has excellent hands. However, the big question about Hoffman is if he has enough speed to get separation from NFL defensive backs.

Devin Street, WR, Pittsburgh
Height: 6-3. Weight: 198.
40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round (2014): 4-6.
3/29/14: Street had an impressive start to the 2013 as he ripped off some big plays against a talented Florida State secondary. The senior totaled six receptions for 141 yards. He beat double coverage on a few throws and showed some run-after-the-catch ability. Street maintained a strong level of play throughout the season with 51 receptions for 854 yards and seven touchdowns. The biggest question mark with him is if he has the speed to get open in the NFL, but he had a solid 40 at the Combine.

8/3/13: Street has been a solid contributor for Pittsburgh the past few seasons. He was second on the team in yards in 2012 and led the Panthers in receptions with 73. The junior totaled 975 yards and five touchdowns. Street had 53 catches for 754 yards and two touchdowns in 2011. He had 25 catches for 318 yards and two touchdowns as a redshirt freshman. Street is a big receiver, but he may lack the speed for the NFL.

Ryan Grant, WR, Tulane
Height: 6-0. Weight: 199.
40 Time: 4.64.
Projected Round (2014): 5-7.
3/29/14: In 2013, Grant had 77 receptions for 1,039 yards and nine touchdowns. He ran slower than expected at the Combine.

8/3/13: Grant had a huge junior season with 76 receptions for 1,149 yards and six touchdowns. He lost the 2011 season to a sports hernia. Grant hauled in 33 receptions for 515 yards and four touchdowns in 2010. He needs another big season to help his draft stock.

Jeff Janis, WR, Saginaw Valley State
Height: 6-3. Weight: 219.
40 Time: 4.42.
Projected Round (2014): 6-FA.
3/29/14: It isn't easy for small-school players to get invites to the Senior Bowl, especially at the skill positions. Offensive and defensive linemen have more luck getting invited to Mobile, Alabama, but the skill position players are less likely to get invites. Janis was able to buck the trend and participated in the most high-profile all-star game. At the Senior Bowl, he was solid but unimpressive.

Janis was one of the top receivers in the nation in Division II over the past few seasons. In 2013, he totaled 83 receptions for 1,572 yards and 14 touchdowns. Janis has good size for the NFL.


Alex Neutz, WR, Buffalo
Height: 6-3. Weight: 205.
Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round (2014): 7-FA.
3/29/14: Neutz played well in 2013 with 61 receptions for 1,024 yards and 12 touchdowns. Early in the season, the senior was impressive against Ohio State (9-98-1) and Baylor (6-197-1). Neutz totaled 65 catches for 1,015 yards with 11 touchdowns in 2012. He has good size but lacks speed. Neutz didn't work out at the Combine.

Matt Hazel, WR, Coastal Carolina
Height: 6-1. Weight: 198.
40 Time: 4.50.
Projected Round (2014): 4-6.
3/29/14: Of all the players at the East-West Shrine, Hazel probably helped himself the most. He really impressed scouts, and they compared Hazel to Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts in his ability to make plays. Hazel definitely helped himself. At his size, he showed nice quickness and route-running for a big receiver.

Hazel had 70 receptions for 990 yards and nine touchdowns in 2013. He had a quality Combine performance, too.


Some really interesting receivers that are going to go in the 6/7/UFA area

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

Fanspeak's On the Clock Mock Draft Simulator - New Orleans Saints

Round 1 (27) Jerimiah Attaochu, OLB, Ga Tech; Height: 6’ 3”; Weight: 252 lbs.
Most underrated of the top talent in the draft; can play OLB, ILB, or DE...
Speed to Burn...Just a tremendous athlete who's only just learning the game...dominated against Georgia...

Round 2 (58) Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss; Height: 6’ 2”; Weight 221 lbs.

Why this guy is not rated higher is puzzling; skilled route runner with "suddenness" when making cuts in his routes giving him advantage over any defender; great hands and continues to disprove doubters about his speed...

Round 3 (91) Jordan Tripp, ILB, Montana; Height: 6’ 3”; Weight 235 lbs.

Surprised to find him here, but snatched him up; another LB who can play ILB or OLB; very capable pass defender which makes him a 3-down linebacker like the first round pick, Attaochu, and therefore a plus, plus player...

Round 4 (122) Russell Bodine, OL, UNC; Height: 6’ 3”; Weight: 310 lbs.

Capable of playing both Guard and Center; One of the strongest players at the combine with great durability; could immediately start at Center and offer flexibility at Guard; big plus - plays with a nasty, mean streak...

Round 5 (155) Walt Aikens, CB, Liberty; Height: 6’ 0”; Weight: 198 lbs.

Got into trouble early and has gotten back on track; many scouting reports compare him to Keenan Lewis, already with the Saints; very genuine interview to accent very genuine coverage skills, speed and size...

Round 5 (157) Wesley Johnson, OL, Vanderbilt; Height: 6’ 5”; Weight: 297 lbs.

Has played all positions on the offensive line with skill set best suited for right tackle or even Centre; Often over-looked statistic is he gave up few to no sacks against some of the top pass rushing talent in the SEC that is now or soon to be in the NFL...

Round 6 (186) James Stone, C, Tennessee; Height: 6’ 4”; Weight: 306 lbs.

Tennessee may have four offensive linemen drafted in this draft, which could work against them as far as rankings; make no mistake, this guy is the goods and should benefit from some NFL coaching to correct technique that is limiting him from being a higher round selection; ideal, pro-ready size and speed...

Love what video I've seen of Tripp but don't know if he can play MLB, especially in our 3-4. Have you read anything about him being able to play the middle?

Three offensive linemen, that seems like a lot. Stone was a great value pick in the 6th tho.

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

Gave it a shot.... This was my first attempt. Can only wish Dennard fell to us at 27. Hard to see all these guys landing to us, but we can always dream. I drafted BPA and considered needs as well. Ended up getting us great depth at CB & WR and allows us to put our best players on the field as they would battle it out in camp. Only thing i didnt like from this mock is I was unable to land a solid LB, due to value and availability.

Round 1 - 27. CB DARQUEZE DENNARD, MICHIGAN STATE

Round 2 - 58. WR ALLEN ROBINSON, PENN STATE

Round 3 - 91. CB PIERRE DESIR, LINDENWOOD

Round 4 - 126. C MARCUS MARTIN, USC

Round 5 - 167. WR RYAN GRANT, TULANE

Round 5 - 169. WR L’DAMIAN WASHINGTON, MISSOURI

Round 6 - 202. CB DONTAE JOHNSON, NORTH CAROLINA STATE

Actually, Tripp play MLB, especially on many Nickel Packages, and is known as a good run stuffer....

We have no depth on the offensive line - none; the guards will need to be replaced in 2-3 years (Grubbs maybe sooner if he doesn't play to his contract)...

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

Round 4 (122) Russell Bodine, OL, UNC; Height: 6’ 3”; Weight: 310 lbs.

could immediately start at Center?????????????????????

I do not see it. excellent developmental player with coaching can become a starter and might be ready to step in at OG in a couple of years when the big buck OG are up for new contracts

Round 6 (186) James Stone, C, Tennessee; Height: 6’ 4”; Weight: 306 lbs

another solid prospect to develop.

Weston Richburg is still my guy in round 2 and he gets a BPA rating at that pick

two years down the road you could be looking at
Weston Richburg and Russell Bodine both as starters for the saints.
who knows Litto might be the other answer at the other OG position. at the least you hope he becomes your #1 back up that does not make fans shutter when he takes the field. so far so good with the kid.

Two OG that can play OC if needed? not a bad set up

kill two birds with one stone. plug the hole now and plug the one coming up in the next few years.

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

I would be very happy with this draft, although i'd want Allen Robinson all areas seem to be filled very nicely. I think jeanpierre & hagan would be A ok with this draft as well, We can only hope things go this well on draft day.

Enjoy...


27 OLB, JEREMIAH ATTAOCHU - GEORGIA TECH

58 CB, STANLEY JEAN-BAPTISTE - NEBRASKA

91 WR, DONTE MONCRIEF - OLE MISS

126 WR, BRANDON COLEMAN - RUTGERS

167 C, BRYAN STORK - FLORIDA STATE

169 RB, DE'ANTHONY THOMAS - OREGON

202 CB, AARON COLVIN - OKLAHOMA

I felt the talent & upside of Aaron Colvin was too good to pass up with our final pick in the 6th round once he gets 100%. Would have time to ease his way back with the drafting of SJB & signing of champ to coach him up
