I hate the first Mock. Everything I write seems wrong the second I'm done. 

That is why I started calling my first mock the Worlds Worst Mock ten yeas ago.

The Team: What in the hell are the Packers doing picking here. They now have to think about moving on from Aaron Rogers. Their TEs are old and getting slower every minute. 

The Player: 3/18 AJ Hockenson: The Best TE in 2019 Draft, But...

The Reason: He would make a great compliment to the aging Jimmy Graham. Hockenson can take over the blocking duties, and take the physical stuff off of Graham. So he can run free down the Seam. 

Last season may have been the finally straw for Rogers odd and caustic personality. If he doesn't win? Is he worthy it? This could be the best place for Lock, because he will get a couple years on the bench to watch, but not learn from (Rogers ain't gonna help him), a HOF QB. Plus, he is similar sized and armed as Rogers. 

Second Choice: Drew Lock QB



Defense: 4-3

The Team: Dolphins need to do everything to help their QB. That starts with the O-line, again. 

The Player: Lock has a great arm. He can manipulate coverage in the pocket. That is a very valued NFL skill. He was the guy who was able to go to his third option in the pocket the smoothest. That is a must NFL trait. He struggle against top comp.

He has to show big at the Senior Bowl to stay in the 2nd. He needs to show he can hit more than his first or second option, and go all the way through his progressions. Lock was the 2nd best QB in this Draft, but he showed up at the Senior Bowl with smaller hands than NFL GMs like for their QBs. Measurement matter. He has smaller hands (9-inches) than the minimum measurement for NFL QBs. He was not great at the Senior Bowl, but he won the start. 
I think he's the most NFL ready (for whatever that means for a rookie QB), because I have seen him go through his progressions across the field to his forth option.
"We played a Heisman Trophy winner a few years ago [Mariota]," Wyoming HC Craig Bohl said when asked about Lock. "And I don't think this guy is too far off." He s a little short, but has similar size and arm to Rogers.

In fact, he looks like he might have a better arm. "Mizzou QB Drew Lock flies unfairly under the radar. Lock is a superstar," Dari Nowkah (SEC Network) said. "Perhaps anyone who doesn't appreciate him now will appreciate him when he is winning football games on Sundays." Missouri plays mostly against more talented teams in the SEC. 

Nice thrower to the 3rd level when he has a clean pocket. Nice job stepping up into the pocket and throwing a Dime in traffic. He knows how to throw the ball up down and all around defenders to complete the pass. He can consistently throw to his second and third receivers. He has some speed, and can run for the first down. 

2018 OUTLOOK: Became just the ninth SEC QB and 112th FBS QB to pass for more than 10,000 yards in a career with his 204 yards at South Carolina (10/6) … His three TD passes at Purdue moved his career total to 82, sixth-most ever among SEC quarterbacks … Moved into second place on Mizzou’s all-time career passing list in the season-opener against UT Martin (9/1), throwing for 289 yards and four scores, his ninth career game with at least four passing TDs … It was also his 24th career game with more than 200 passing yards … His 225.9 passer rating in the game was the sixth-best mark in program history … Had four touchdown passes against Wyoming (9/8), tying Andre Woodson for the seventh-most touchdown passes in SEC history with 79 … Set a new career high in completions during that game, completing 33-of-45 attempts … Passed for three TDs in the first half at Purdue (9/15) to move his career total to 82, ranking him sixth in SEC history as he passed Eli Manning (Ole Miss) on the conference’s all-time career passing TD list … Threw for 221 yards against Georgia (9/22), the 27th time in his career he has thrown for at least 200 yards … It was his 14th straight game with at least 200 yards through the air … Followed that with his 15th straight game of more than 200 yards after going 17-for-36 for 204 yards at South Carolina, doing so without three starting WRs, who missed the majority of the game due to injury.

The Reason: Who is their QB?

Second Choice: Drew Lock QB 



Defense: 4-3

The Team: They need a big DL who can play in their 3-4 system. It looks to me like they will address the lines in this amazing D-line Draft. This is a pure best player available pick. Wilkins should be a top ten pick. 

The Player: 2/20 Christian Wilkins: 2017 Bio.

The Reason: As long as Grady Jarrett is unsigned they have to go DT here.

Key F.A. Lost:

Thomas Davis OLB

The Team: They have to get some blocking for Cam. He takes a beating. Getting an OLT who can take away worries on the blindside will lengthen Newton's career. 

They did not draft an interior OL in the past two Drafts, even though they lost one of the best to Free Agency.

The Player: 3/28 Andre Dillard: Best OL In The Draft.

The Reason: They need to do everything they can to help their QB to get back to the Super Bowl. Dillard can play all over their line and improve one of them instantly. I think he is a plug and play OLT.

Second Choice: Jonah Williams OL

Key F.A. Lost:

Odell Beckham Jr WR

The Team: Giant have the worst O-line in the NFL. Yup that's about it. 

The Player:  Williams slides back like a cat in pass pro. He stays low and wide, but he keeps his hands outside as well. He has to do a better job keeping his hands inside. Great job in play action moving the D-end back. Then holding on by the LOS for the whole play. He really does not kick slide as much as I'd like. He shuffles back like an OG a lot. Great job blocking down on the DT. 

He could be a great Guard if he doesn’t work out at OLT. He can block down on the DT and shove him to the ground, and then go and seal the LB. He gets movement to the left when he blocks down on the DT to the side. He can step outside and drive the OLB into the Safety on the Goal line. A great power run blocker. A true drive blocker on the goal line. 

Williams was a guy I wasn't completely sure about. But he has looked like an NFL OLT this season. He plays with great balance moving forward, and nobody recovers from a great move by the rusher better than he does. Great hands and when he grabs shirt the rush is done. 

Junior (2018): Secured the starting right tackle spot as a freshman and moved to left tackle as a sophomore, earning All-America recognition ... named the FWAA/Outland Trophy Offensive Lineman of the Month (September) ... started all 37 games of his Alabama career (22 at left tackle, 15 at right tackle) ... helps open holes for the nation’s 30th-ranked rushing offense (216.9 ypg), the No. 1 scoring offense (54.1 ppg) and the No. 2 total offense (564.3 ypg) ... the Tide’s offensive front also ranks tied for third nationally in fewest sacks allowed at 0.63 per game ... has 31 knockdown blocks on the season, the second highest number on the team ... has graded out at 90 percent or higher in all eight games this season, for an average grade of 91.9 ... has only missed three assignments in 453 snaps at left tackle for a success grade of 99.3 percent ... has not allowed a sack all season and just one pressure ... selected as a Midseason All-American by The Sporting News and ESPN.com while earning Midseason First Team All-America recognition by the Associated Press ... preseason first team All-America honoree by five major outlets ... named to the Outland Trophy Watch List to start the year

The Reason: I think Williams is an NFL OLT. If not he cannot fail as an OLG. And he might be able to play ORT. Coincidentally Jonah can play all three positions.  

Second Choice: Jawaan Taylor ORT

The Player3/20 Josh-Jacobs: The Best RB In 2019 Draft. But...

Vrabel is build a terrific defense down in Tennessee. It could be scary the next few years if he can pick up a Number One Corner.

Key F.A. Lost:

Antonio Brown WR

The Team: They need help on offense. They need a young QB and an RB. Unless of course, Tomlin sees a great young OLB/passrusher who can fit in his defense. A WR to attempt to replace Antonio Brown wouldn't hurt.

They need help on defense. "The game has changed," Colbert said. "Look, we sacked the quarterback at a very good rate, but our takeaways are not very good at all. It’s really reflective on the players we have back there. What we want to look at, what we want to value looking forward, is let’s value the takeaway-capable guys who have shown they’ve been able to do that in college." They will be looking for some speed off the edge.
They have always loved the Edgerusher in the 1st Round. "Our game has always been about getting physical players who can come off the edge and close off the edge and make a tackle," Colbert said. "But are they doing that at the expense of not making plays on the football? We have to maybe try to find that balance and maybe be more open to the concept that the game is constantly changing, and if you want playmakers in the back end, then find someone who has done it." They have been getting the pressure.
But the the INTs on the backend. "You would think that it would. But sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn’t," Colbert said. "Artie Burns had five great interceptions as a senior at Miami, and right now Artie is trying to find his game. He had more interceptions than all but one other cornerback in that draft. You hoped that would transfer and early it showed that it might, but right now he has to re-find it." I got your huckleberry. 

The Player: Harry is a phenomenal freakish talent. He still has some brain farts that will make you crazy (like FAIR CATCHING a punt at the 3-yard line against USC). But he is so much faster than everyone else on the field that when he puts that elite size, speed, and hands on display, with some smarts, he is a top five pick. 
He was phenomenal against Michigan State. He might have been the best offensive player in college in week Two. Great release of off the snap. His inside release gets him wide open behind the CB, which brings safeties over, and opens things up for Teammates inside.
Nice inside move, with a nice sudden burst down the numbers. He will also start slow, and the increase his speed smoothly down the sideline. He can also give a shimmy and break free inside. He has some quicks running short patterns. He has elite suddenness for a 6-4 WR.
He looks the part. The announcers compared him to Julio Jones, and I dig it. He won't run a 4.3 like Julio, but he looks like a 4.4 guy to me. He has that knack for getting open deep, and he broke off that pattern and caught it short for his 2nd catch. Good fighter on the edge blocking. He has the size, and he can put the CB on skates. 

The Reason: Harry is a freakish WR, who I think will develop into a Number One.  

Baker is not the best guy at getting INTs. But he will start across form Haden and give them some great man coverage.

Key F.A. Lost:

The Team: Pete Carroll is always looking for passrushers, especially speed rushers. 

They are still looking to replace Richard Sherman.

The Player: Simmons is an explosive inside player who got injured. He has Character Concerns, and we will see how much the NFL gives a crap about such things. He was not allowed to go to the Combine for punching a woman in high school. Then he also blew out his knee. So we have no idea haw he is doing and how he is healing. 

The Reason: Seahawks are known for taking chances on talent over character, like Frank Clark. If his knee checks and he is on the Board, this could be his landing spot.  

Second Choice: Byron Murphy CB

Key F.A. Lost:

Terrell Suggs OLB 

Za'Darius Smith Edge
John Brown WR 

The Team: Ravens need an Edge guy to help their defense. Sweat just keeps proving he is a top Edge guy over and over again. This is such a typical Ravens pick.   

They have never recovered from the loss of Steve Smith. They have not even tried. They have not drafted a WR on Day One or Day Two in the past three Drafts. No wonder Jackson looked so terrible in the Playoffs.  

The Player: Burns made a ton of money at the Combine. I had him a shade below Polite, and now Polite looks like a 2nd, and this is probably too late for Burns. He measured out as one of the elite athletes in this Draft. I was not expecting that. A 10'9" Broad jump is an incredible explosion number. 

He showed he could get to the QB at FLA ST. He actually had a great season. I did not think he would reach double-digits sacks. He has Long tall legs. He can get a little gawky. Needs to use hands more. He showed some heavy hands at the Combine. Nice COD in open field. Nice blast off. He has great hands and made a great catch off his shoe tops at the combine. Nice feet moving sideways. 
Elite natural athlete. He can really move in coverage drills and catch the ball. Love the way this guy moves in space. He is a 3-4 OLB. He was one of the best movers in space at the Combine. Elite testing numbers at the Combine will move him up into the top half of the 1st. 
He really looks the part. If you look at him vs. Polite, he wins. But I’m not sure he has that knack for hitting the quarterback. Polite does. Burns gets a lot of pressure because of his size and athleticism, but doesn’t reach the QB. He gets lost in the pocket a lot, and can’t find the ball, but it still disrupts the offense. 

CAREER: Appeared in 38 games with 25 starts and recorded 124 tackles, including 39.5 for loss with 24.0 sacks, seven forced fumbles, seven pass breakups, three blocked kicks and two fumble recoveries…sacks total of 24.0 ranked fifth in program history…ranked eighth on FSU’s all-time career tackles for loss list with 39.5.
2018: Started all 12 games and recorded 52 tackles, including 15.5 for loss with 10.0 sacks, eight quarterback hurries, three forced fumbles, three pass breakups and one fumble recovery…named fourth-team All-American by Phil Steele…first-team All-ACC…Bendarik Award semifinalist…earned Team MVP and Defensive MVP honors…voted team captain…ranked first in ACC and eighth in NCAA with average of 0.83 sacks per game…average of 0.3 forced fumbles per game ranked third in ACC and 31st in NCAA…ranked fifth in ACC and 28th in NCAA with average of 1.3 tackles for loss per game…led ACC with 15.5 tackles for loss, 112 TFL yards lost, 10.0 sacks and 94 sack yards lost in conference play.

The Reason: He reminds me of Patriots killer Terrell Suggs, who was not the most athletic rusher ever, but was fierce and had a great knack for hitting the quarterback.

How can your QB help you win when you don't give him anyone to throw too. But they need an edge guy just as much as a WR. Best Player Available. 

Second Choice: Deebo Samuel WR
