Other than Sands this is a solid mock.

It's possible that Sands would have to be bumped and all of Skrine, Henery, and Green would have to be moved up from where they are to assure a better chance at getting those guys.

The 7th could be used to move up a few slots somewhere else or filled in with whatever player might be left at that point.

see quite a few guys who wouldn't make it out of camp. We don't need MORE players. We need HIGHER QUALITY players.

Cannon and Dowling obviously would stay. If Taylor or Gay aren't retained, that also opens up the competition for Skrine to overtake Madison, Lewis, or Butler. Ellis would challenge Eason and Hoke for a spot, and easily overtake McClendon. Pettis would join Ward, Wallace, Sanders, and Brown as the 5 WRs. Reid would likely replace Hills. Sands (if he was involved, see above posts...) would battle Mundy and Will Allen, and could possibly go to the PS if not kept on the 53 and unclaimed. Skrine, see above. If he doesn't make it...well he is a 5th rounder...that happens a lot. Henery would send Suisham back to the streets. Green would make Mewelde Moore a non-priority to resign.


Remember, the draft is going to happen before any free agents get to sign in all likelihood. That means that anyone who is a FA currently could have a potential replacement player drafted.


Without Sands in the draft plan...


Roethlisberger, Lefty, Dixon
Mendy, Redman, Dwyer, Green
Miller, Spaeth, Johnson
Ward, Wallace, Brown, Sanders, Pettis
Flozell, Colon, Starks, Pouncey, Legursky, Kemo, Cannon, Scott (either one), Foster, Reid


Smith, Keisel, Hood, Hampton, Hoke, Ellis, Eason
Woodley, Farrior, Timmons, Harrison, Worilds, Sylvester, Foote, Fox
Taylor, McFadden, Dowling, Butler, Skrine, Lewis
Polamalu, Clark, Allen, Mundy

Warren, Sepulveda, Henery


That's 53, and keeps them all without even making any difficult roster decisions.

Yeah, I don't see alot of camp fodder in that mock.

I dont' see anything wrong with this draft. The more I read about him, the more I like the CB from NM State (House) so I may switch him at 43 and pray that Cannon makes it down to 63? Not sure how that would play out.

I like Skrine and I like the corner from Citadel in later rounds also. What makes this so much fun is that it's all just conjecture. It's totally a "well let's see what happens.......

Replace Brandon Burton for Dowling in Round 2 and a DE or LB (Bruce Miller) for Sands in Round 4 and I'm loving it!!!!!

I do think that Henery could be gone by our Round 5 pick because of his ability to kick and punt. Not sure if he can do both to the NFL level.

I like your draft except for Robert Sands pick. You can add an ILB or DE and it would be perfect draft. All needs addressed in the draft.

Henery's weakness is that he didn't handle kickoff duties at Nebraska, instead the Cornhuskers used another kickoff specialist...so it remains to be seen if Henery could handle those duties in the pros.

With the kickoff moved up to the 35 that could become negligible.


And he's got to be at least as good as Reed... :HeadBanger

I think Nebraska's kickoff specialist was really good this year. I wouldn't read too much into Henery not kicking off. He has a strong leg. But, since Henery can punt, we can always get a kickoff specialist like the kid from Univ of Cincinnati (Rogers).

Drock, I'd be happy with these players. Nice job. Dowling scares me with his injury history, but his skill set and size and well worth a late second round pick.
