Thread: Philly's First Ever Mock

  1. #1

    Philly's First Ever Mock

    I've never done a mock before, being content to comment on others. Well, finally, here is my first ever mock.

    1. Cordy Glenn, OL, Georgia: I'm hoping that Glenn falls and the Steelers get a big, versatile offensive lineman. If Glenn is off the board and the Steelers stay at 24, I think I go with Hightower.

    2. Derek Wolfe, DE, Cincinnati: Wolfe has the prototypical size and athleticism that you look for in a 3-4 DE. I'm hoping for an athletic, disruptive end in the mold of Aaron Smith (note: I'm not saying that he'll be the next Aaron Smith). Keisel is getting older, and the Giants are a great testament to the value of rotating defensive lineman. With Wolfe, Hood and Heyward, Steelers are set at DE for the future.

    3. LaMichael James, RB, Oregon: Speed back is a nice complement to Redman and the rest of the stable of Dwyer, Clay and, when healthy, Mendenhall. May not have the size to be an every down back, but Haley can incorporate an explosive player and balance his carries.

    4. Lucas Nix, OG, Pitt: This is the pick regardless of Glenn or Hightower in the first. Nothing flashy, but he'll be a solid RG.

    5. Hebron Fangupo, NT/DT, BYU: May be a round early, but the Steelers decide to roll with another defensive lineman from BYU.

    6. Evan Rodriguez, TE, Temple: Versatile TE has both blocking and receiving ability.

    7. Toney Clemons, WR, Colorado: Decent side and speed, worth a shot as the #5 WR, possible development project.

    7a. Akiem Hicks, DT, Regina: Project with lots of physical tools. Somebody may gamble on him earlier, but if available, worth a shot.

    7b. Jeremy Jones, S, Wayne State: D2 guy showed some ball skills with plenty of picks in college.

    7c. Jerrell Harris, LB, Alabama: Likely a PS candidate, he may be able to contribute on special teams as a rookie.

    The hardest omission from me was Brandon Brooks from Miami of Ohio. I wanted to find a way to work him into the draft, and was thinking of going with Hightower/Brooks 1/2, but I decided that I wanted Wolfe just a bit more.

    Solid first effort Philly! Just think about what you could have earned in billable hours as an attorney in the time it took you to come up with that mock!

    Thanks, Ruthless.

    What makes you think I wasn't billing somebody for that time?





    (Just kidding)

    very funny!


    The Hundred-Dollar Bill.

    Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, an honest lawyer and an old drunk were walking along when they simultaneously spotted a hundred-dollar bill laying in the street. Who gets it?

    The old drunk, of course, the other three are mythological creatures.


    A Reasonable Fee

    A man phones a lawyer and asks, "How much would you charge for just answering three simple questions?"

    The lawyer replies, "A thousand dollars."

    "A thousand dollars!" exclaims the man. "That's very expensive isn't it?"

    "It certainly is," says the lawyer. "Now, what's your third question?"

    Phew, what a relief. I know I'm solid as long as I got the MJG seal of approval!
