  • RavenOfProphecy's Mock Offseason W/ Three-Round Draft!

    This took forever to do, but I'm finally done. I decided to do a mock offseason with some notable free agents, players who could be traded, and a three-round draft with draft-day trades included as well! Constructive criticism is appreciated, and I'll try to take it into account on my next mock. Reasoning that changes my mind about picks will earn +rep. Thanks!

    RAVENOFPROPHECY'S MOCK OFFSEASON!

    FREE AGENCY

    Free agents are included that I felt would potentially affect the draft plans of NFL teams – guys like Ronnie Brown or Terrell Owens may not be back in town, but I doubt their signing would substantially impact what any team does in the draft. Only free agents who are changing teams were listed. I tried not to project a whole lot here considering how uncertain the entire process is. If there wasn’t a logical suitor, I didn’t include that player. Someone I’m projecting to be released is marked with an asterisk*.

    QB Donovan McNabb* – Minnesota Vikings
    No assurance that the Vikings will be able to get a top quarterback prospect, and McNabb is the top free agent quarterback available.

    QB Vince Young* – Buffalo Bills
    Buffalo needs to sell more tickets, so they could be pressured into taking a marketable quarterback like Young and throwing him onto the field.

    RB Pierre Thomas – New England Patriots
    New England reportedly almost consummated a trade for Pierre Thomas during the season, and he would be a solid addition to their running back committee.

    RB DeAngelo Williams – Washington Redskins
    Washington desperately needs to improve talent across the board and adding a workhorse running back such as Williams would substantially improve the offense.

    WR Randy Moss – Chicago Bears
    Moss didn’t look very motivated this year playing for Tennessee, but he’s worth a cheap one-year deal as a deep threat in Mike Martz’s offense.

    WR Terrell Owens – Cleveland Browns
    It may be risky to sign Terrell Owens, but it’s probably more risky to go into next season without giving Colt McCoy any weapons to work with.

    WR Steve Smith (Giants) – Seattle Seahawks
    Pete Carroll brings in yet another former USC player, this time at the wide receiver spot opposite Big Mike Williams.

    OT Jared Gaither – Buffalo Bills
    It was rumored that Buffalo was interested in trading for Gaither last year, and they might be able to get a bargain for him after he spent last year on IR.

    DE Ray Edwards – Jacksonville Jaguars
    Edwards may chase the money this offseason – Minnesota can’t tag all of their top free agents. Jacksonville is certainly looking to upgrade the defensive line.

    DT Shaun Rogers – New Orleans Saints
    Rogers will most likely want to sign with a contender at this age, and New Orleans could seriously use more talent in the middle of their defensive line.

    LB Mathias Kiwanuka – New England Patriots
    Has the size (6’5”, 265) and versatility (experience at both defensive end and outside linebacker) to interest the Patriots as a bargain pickup.

    LB Manny Lawson – Houston Texans
    Houston needs to get some pieces for their 3-4. Manny Lawson hasn’t been the most productive, but pickings could be slim this year.

    CB Nnamdi Asomugha – New York Jets
    I am fully prepared to defenestrate myself the moment this happens in real life – Asomugha previously said he would like to play with Darrelle Revis.

    CB Champ Bailey –Detroit Lions
    Champ could be intrigued by the way Detroit has improved under Jim Schwartz. The Lions probably won’t be able to draft a top corner and could pay one in free agency.

    CB Antonio Cromartie – Oakland Raiders
    It doesn’t seem like New York is too interested in bringing back Cromartie – the Raiders lose Aso to the Jets and fall in love with Cromartie’s athleticism.

    PRE-DRAFT TRADES

    Packers trade QB Matt Flynn to Tennessee for the #77 overall pick
    I get the feeling that Mike Munchak may want to bring in a veteran over drafting a rookie – Flynn looked good last year in relief duty and could earn a fairly high draft pick.

    Eagles trade QB Kevin Kolb to Arizona for the #38 overall pick
    Kolb will fetch a high price on the market – this year’s quarterback class is weak. Arizona will attempt to keep Larry Fitzgerald happy by taking his recommendations seriously.

    Bengals trade WR Chad Ochocinco to New England for a 2011 4th round pick
    This mock doesn’t go to four rounds, but it doesn’t appear Ochocinco will be back in town. He’s a friend of Belichick’s and the Patriots may be willing to part with a mid-round pick.

    Panthers trade WR Steve Smith to Chicago for the #93 overall pick
    Even though I have the Bears signing Moss in free agency, he can’t be counted on at this point. Smith would be a nice fit in Martz’s offense, and easily the team’s number one target.

    Patriots trade OG Logan Mankins to Chicago for the #29 overall pick
    Logan Mankins wants out – the Bears need to seriously upgrade their line and Lovie Smith and Mankins share the same agent. They’d be willing to pay up.

    First off nice work ROP this took forever I'm sure.

    Adding Kiwi would be awesome, we need a pass rush and Kiwi seems like a great fit at OLB for us. Great addition.

    I could see us picking up Pierre Thomas. I personally like what we have at RB, but adding another would make sense.

    Chad Johnson makes a lot of sense.

    I don't want to see Mankins go, but if we have to get rid of him because he won't play then I would be OK with getting a first for him.

    I am a big Aldon Smith fan, I want us to try and draft him. If we pick up Kiwi I still would like to see us look at an OLB in the first; Kiwi, Smith, and Cunningham would be nice.

    I could see us taking Ingram, I really could. I would prefer we look elsewhere if we Picked up Pierre Thomas, but Ingram is a guy who I could see in a Pats uniform next year with the BB/Saban connection.

    With Mankins gone, OL is a huge need so Pouncey is good there. Addidng Wisniewski as well is awesome.

    Heyward in the second is sextastic.

    One question, I probably missed this but how did Cleveland end up with our third rounders?

    Overall, this would be a pretty successful Pats offseason I'd say even though I'd like to hold on to Mankins.

      Don Vito, here's the Cleveland trade:

      Cleveland trades the #53 overall pick (370) to New England for the #74 overall pick (220), the #92 overall pick (132), and a 2011 sixth-round pick

        Restocking the defensive line would be awesome, however we do have greater needs. Cam Jordan is fine in the first round instead of a quarterback, but I don't think we can afford to use both picks on the defensive line. I would rather see Sherrod in the second round though. But given how this played out, I wouldn't be terribly upset with this draft.

            Very good skins offseason - Love signing Deangelo..and I love the Julio pick as well as Locker. The only thing I do not like is that the skins traded up for Locker. The skins under Snyder have wasted so many picks by trading them away...and I am hoping Allen/Shanahan can change this tendency the skins have. I would have rather the skins kept their second round and next year's pick and taken their chances with what QB were there in the second. In this draft if Locker does indeed go before they get to pick in the second round - you would still have Mallet and Ponder available. I would rather take one of those two and keep my future draft tpick - but nice job overall

              First things, first: nice job. This looks like a ****-ton of work. I'm not sure about signing TO to the Browns though...

              It may be risky to sign Terrell Owens, but it’s probably more risky to go into next season without giving Colt McCoy any weapons to work with.
              I just can't imagine Heckert bringing him in after watching the whole McNabb/TO situation unravel in Philly. I don't think he would want to subject a young QB to that kind of unpredictability. First and only priority should be protecting Colt (with playmakers, but also mentally and emotionally). Draft Green (which you did and I love), and let them develop together.

              EDIT: Also, if Stephen Paea is available at our 2nd round pick, I really, really, really want to take him!

              EDIT: I keep posting/editing before I finish going through the whole mock lol. Anyway love getting Acho and Matthews as well. Two guys that caught my eye at the Senior Bowl that are on my 'Do Want' list.

                  Not a bad Ravens draft, but I would be very surprised if we don't come away with a pass-rusher in the first three rounds. I think we could possibly let Zbikowski and Nakamura compete for the SS spot if we let Landry walk, so that position might be one that we skip in the draft.

                    I considered pass rushers for the second and third picks but I couldn't find any I was really sold on as good values there. It seems like the Ravens usually try to land someone who slid a bit and is BPA.

                      That's very true. I think the most likely way that we would get a pass-rusher in your mock is by taking Houston or Reed in the first. I'd actually be fine with taking either instead of Harris, but I know there will be a lot of people/Ravens fans that will disagree with me.

                      Beal would seem like Newsome pick in the second round IMO, Oklahoma is one of his favorite (if not the favorite) colleges to pick from. But like I said the mock wasn't bad anyways.

                        I'm very happy with Jacksonville's acquisition of Ray Edwards, Blaine Gabbert, and Ahmad Black. However, I don't feel WR would be a smart pick with Greg Jones on the board, considering our starting MLB and WLB are free agents.

                            Id go with allen bailey in the second and kaepernick or best QB available in the third. I just dont see us picking him the in second round as of now pre-combine.

                              I like getting Deangelo, Julio, and Locker. Problem is that I think we need skill players but that's not really how to build the oldest team in the league. Our offense and defensive lines are attrocious and we need backers and safeties. If we are going to trade up for Locker I'd take Cam Jordan with the 10th pick.
