Drafting should be based on need, but sometimes the need is not purely based on talent and desire. There is always a greater need and that is the need for culinary upgrades.
Do you hunger for hope? Are you thirsty for victory? Does your appetite crave for end zone celebrations? Well, it's time to get out the menu that sates your hunger for sacks! Here it is, MHR's first and only food based mock! Yes, there will have to be a few draft day trades to get the picks in the right places, so just think of this as being like a potluck. BTW, if you don't like these picks you can always send them back to the kitchen.
1st Rd Aaron Curry, LB, 6-2, 255, Wake Forest. Some hot stuff will definitely spice up the D.
1st Rd Darius Butler, CB, 5-10, 182, Uconn. Well... someone has to serve all these good dishes.
2nd Rd Jared Cook, TE,6-5, 246, South Carolina. It's good to get a young TE to learn McD's new recipes for the offense.
4th Rd Chris Baker, DT, 6-2, 325, Hampton (O). Denver kneads girth up front.
5th Rd Glenn Coffee, RB, 6-0, 210, Alabama. It feels wrong to pick a RB in any round other than the 6th (TD to HOF!), but it is hard to pass up a nice hot cup of java when we are grinding through the second day of the draft.
5th Rd Emanual Cook, SS, 5-10, 197, South Carolina. Yeah, too many cooks can spoil the broth but we have to accept risks to improve the D.
6th Rd Deon Butler, WR, 5-10, 182, Penn State. No need to overwork the other Butler.
7th Rd Why waste picks on Practice Squad career bench warmers when they can be traded for 5 Super Slams?
UDFA Antonio Appleby, ILB, 6-4, 243, Virginia. Always helps to have a professional restaurateur on the squad.
John Bacon, ILB, 6-2, 243, Oregon. A special team player must “bring home the bacon” to make the squad.
Maurice Kitchens, ILB, 6-2, 247, Marshall. Mr. Kitchens is a natural for this draft.
