Final Mock-Let the Season begin!
This is my third and final mock of the year. This year is the first time my selections have changed this late in the game but it happens, right. Players jump up, players fall. In this Mock I will give you my first, second, and final player drafted. In my first 2 I used a pick in all 7 rounds(even though Denver doesn’t have a 6th round selection) but this time I will only give a player and a round, no 6th or selection number. This is it folks enjoy.
1st Mock: Manti Te'o
2nd Mock: Damontre Moore, OLB/DE
Sorry Tim but Manti is taken by Minnesota a few picks earlier.
Final Round 1:
Desmond Trufant, CB
The 6-foot, 190-pounder has the speed and agility to be a good cover corner. He has shown the ability to be a decent blitzer, too. Trufant had an excellent collegiate career as one of the best corners in the Pac-12.
1st Mock: Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International
2nd Mock: Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International
It looks as if Jonathan Cyprien might even become a first round selection- I loved this pick but his talent level is far more superior than a late 2 round pick.
Final Round 2:
Margus Hunt, DE, SMU
Hunt is a physical freak who needs more development and not having the pressure of starting right away with Wolfe and Ayers, plus having Fox and Del Rio showing him the ropes. I think this HIGH risk High reward pick is worth it.
1st Mock: Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford
2nd Mock: Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford
Final Round 3:
Le'Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State
Even though I’ve said the Broncos
don’t need to draft a RB this year they could use depth and competition at running back. The powerful Bell would be a perfect back to help protect Peyton Manning
in the passing game. My biggest concern is if Bell is another Ron Dayne
great college player but couldn’t ever transition into the NFL.
1st Mock: Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU
2nd Mock: Jordan Hill, DT, Penn State
Final Round 4:
Luke Marquardt, OT, Azusa Pacific
The 6-foot-8, 315-pounder has the size, length and frame to develop into a starting right tackle in the NFL. He has surprisingly quick feet and is athletic. His basketball background can be seen in his agility and smooth movement skills. Marquardt is a developmental prospect with big upside.
1st Mock: Joseph Randle, RB, Oklahoma State
2nd Mock: Kenny Stills, WR, Oklahoma
Final Round 5:
Kenny Stills, WR, Oklahoma
The 6-foot-1, 194-pounder was the Sooners' No. 1 receiver in 2012 since Ryan Broyles
moved on to the NFL. Stills plays bigger/tougher than his listed size and has decent speed. A nice addition to the young corp. of players. Plus can never give Manning enough targets!
1st Mock: Demetrius McCray, CB, Appalachian State
2nd Mock: Demetrius McCray, CB, Appalachian State
I would love to have McCray but I’m starting to see him fly up draft boards and other Mock Drafts. I’ve seen him listed as high as the 3rd round so new thinking is he won’t be here any longer.
Final Round 7:
Kevin Reddick, ILB, North Carolina
The senior was a disappointment through the early going, but definitely picked it up in the second half of the season which should be enough to get his name called on the last day of the draft.
