    my dream scenario is to get thomas at 1:18 and maybe move up a few spots in the 2nd and grab cody if he falls within striking range.

    talk about getting stronger in the middle of the field.

    So what if we sign Snack and draft Cam Thomas later in the draft?

    I love the way you think...don't we have 4 round 5 picks this season? Thomas and Cody? Wow! I would be stoked.

    We will probably get 2 extra fifth rounders (for BMac and Nate) and maybe 1 extra seventh rounder (for Leftwich). However, those comp picks cannot be traded. It can make it easier to trade your other regular picks on day 3, though.


    Final Ruthless Mock:
    1.22 CB Marcus Peters, 6'0" 197 lbs., Washington
    2.56 FS Damarious Randall, 5'11" 196 lbs., Arizona State
    3.87 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251 lbs., Miami
    4.121 DE Henry Anderson, 6'6" 294 lbs., Stanford
    5.160 WR Titus Davis, 6'1" 196 lbs., Central Michigan
    6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel, 6'3" 255 lbs., North Dakota State
    6.212c OLB Max Valles, 6'5" 251 lbs., Virginia
    7.239 RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217 lbs., North Dakota State

    Jamal Williams who before getting hurt goes 6 ft 3 and is over 350. Yet he is as good as it gets in the NFL at NT in a 3-4. Shaun Rogers is 6 ft 4 and goes over 350.
    Oh my goodness... you have got to be kidding with that. True, it's pretty much impossible to move him in the run game. But in pass-rush, he is nothing at all to write home about.

    And please note, his biggest strength is his "strength" (or more specifically, his mass). And relative to that, most of the guys he's going against in college are kids, and/or shirley not pro caliber. When he gets to the league, he will not be able to flat-out maul people like he could in college, simply because he was that much bigger.

    Lastly, you mention Jamal Williams & Shaun Rogers and their girth. I'm gonna guess that both Jamal & Rogers did not come in to the league at that size. After maturing, it's only natural that you get beefier. For Cody, he is gonna come into the league at well over 350 lbs.
    How is he nothing in the pass rush game? His job is to take on two guys to open up one of the OLBs. He isn't supposed to get penetration unless they make the unfortunate mistake of trying to block him with one guy...which wont happen.
