Round 1: Donta Hightower, ILB Alabama

https://encrypted-tbn1.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS5uj4siUsLgqoTtZFv-an2VwYztjjuSmIdEfkVimJgLYVqecMV1A

A beast of a 265lb inside linebacker. Knows the 3-4 very well. Can pressure up the middle or on the edge on passing downs. Coverage ability could be a liability, but the stars seem to be lining up with him. He has all of the attributes of a Colbert/Tomlin first round pick.

Round 2: Brandon Brooks, OG Miami of Ohio

https://encrypted-tbn1.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcR0HgE0HttfRv2bgglqIxjohHWW8ZDQv CZwT0vf1kVoRwz8vPf_wg

The big offensive lineman measured 6-foot-5 and weighed 346 pounds. He completed 36 reps on the bench press, a number exceeded by just one offensive lineman at the combine. The same can be said for Brooks' 4.98 40 time, which included a 10-yard split of 1.71 seconds. Only Donald Stephenson ran faster at the combine. His vertical jump of 32 inches and broad jump of 8-feet, 9-inches were also superb. The 4.52 short shuttle time beat all marks from the offensive linemen who ran in Indianapolis.

Round 3:Hebron Fangupo NT BYU

https://encrypted-tbn1.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSv7wnuCAo_6SQwcdb0CFS_b5XHsetGZ BGk9f-0BUxeUYA7dZA_Ww

A riser after the combine and as teams dig in to his tape. He can contribute year one at NT with Mclendon.

A man in the middle. He was a USC trojan recruit, but left when it became apparent that he was not able to keep his family safe in L.A.

Round 4: Robert Turbin RB Utah State

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-c7ttXpltJA8/TsjfzFPBRcI/AAAAAAAAAIU/qdpLdwPnrPo/s1600/Robert+Turbin.jpg

A 5'9" 220lb running back that can power run with the best of them. He is better than Clay and the out of shape Georgia Tech running back. Plus he's green.

Round 5: James Brown, OT Troy

https://encrypted-tbn1.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQZaj79PgeUM5Ym9qH5blvc65BXGxX3o HJI5XKO_WzhtXnoYntk_w

A raw developmental tackle prospect who can play both guard and tackle. With some coaching he could develop into a good swing player who can come in and start.

Round 6: Bryan Anger P Cal

https://encrypted-tbn1.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSKNBXKs-DQsTydmViA8MPckPPaQs_PhXT9Di9JIHsAAMo98jFK

Can punt the crap out of the ball and fixes our Sepulveda problem.

Round 7: Chad Diehl FB Clemson

http://cdn.bleacherreport.net/images_root/slides/photos/001/789/082/1129FB031_t607_display_image.jpg?1326312468

A true fullback. 265lbs of linebacker stuffing meat. Ha ha.


That concludes the Mock of Ages III.

As you can see in my sig, I'm down with your first pick.

Actually, I like a lot of this draft. I even like Fangupo. I will say that I don't think he'll be too helpful in year one. I've watched him at BYU. He has good athleticism and has natural strength, but his technique is sloppy. He actually played a lot of 3-4 DE this season.

Turbin and Wagner are Steelers types.

Instead of Nix, I would have added a player to help with our pass defense. Either a pass rusher or a DB. I'm not sure Nix would beat out Ramon Foster.

Overall, well done. Might be the best realistic mock I've seen so far.

I haven't seen an evaluation or scouting report yet that has Konz as a Round 1 talent. Maybe Round 2, but I have only seen a few sources so far so maybe I'm wrong.

I also think we need a Place Kicker way more than a punter. Kapinos was more than fine. I like the Diehl pick but need a TE to force D. Johnson off the roster.

He'll fall no further than the Ravens. They are in desperate need of a Center and Konz is the best of the bunch.

Don't make Robert Turbin angry. You wouldn't like him when he's angry. :D :mrgreen:

Neither one of those sites have evaluated Junior prospects fully yet. They wait until after the combine. The first post announcement event that Juniors can participate in.

Has there ever been a draft where a single team took two players from Utah State?

Replace Peter Konz with Cordy Glenn and i like that draft.

Replace Peter Konz with Cordy Glenn and i like that draft.

This is based on the assumption that Glenn will not be available due to his showing at the Senior Bowl.

If he is available I take him over Konz.

I like the position though. O-line in Rd 1 should help the team most.
