Default Do, Don't and a Surprise

Team: Oakland Raiders

Who do you want your team to draft.
Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah - I have been a fan of Lotulelei for the past year, this is the type of player that is a building block for a young team... Raiders do run a base 4-3 but Dennis Allen likes to mix it up on the front 7... Star could play multiple positions on the d-line and make the players around him better.

Who don't you want your team to draft.
Geno Smith, QB, West Virgina - I don't dislike Geno Smith like many others but with the Raiders trading for Matt Flynn and with so many holes on the defense, I rather not use the #3 pick on a QB.

Who could be the surprise pick? something we don't see in a lot of mocks or maybe you heard something, somewhere and its got you thinking.
Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan - Raiders are set at left tackle with Jared Veeldheer but there has been some talk among fans with his recent bulking up like the Incredible Hulk, he could be getting ready for a switch to the right side. Also Jared Veeldheer was asked on twitter if he would be ok with moving to the right side, he responded by saying, "Anything to help the team win"

what about your team, whats going on?

Jets

Want to draft?
Ansah or Mingo. IMO they are fairly far ahead of the rest in terms of pass rush ability. I don't really care about Jordan's versatility, coverage skills and measurables. We need guys who can get at the qb without rushing 7 guys, and Ansah and Mingo are the only guys id feel comfortable with winning 1 on 1s. A trade back and taking Jarvis jones if Ansah and Mingo are gone.

Don't want to draft?
Dion Jordan, as stated above I don't care about my OLB's coverage skills he'd be rushing pretty much every play in our scheme. Not a good fit.
Tavon Austin or Cordarelle Patterson. We don't need a WR until next year, and the Jets should get the Bucs 2014 1st for Revis so just wait a year and get Lee or Watkins.

Surprise pick?
Geno Smith. If he's there at 9 I'm not sure the jets would pass on him.
Dee Milliner. Wilson is probably better suited as a slot corner so if Milliner falls to 9 I could see the Jets taking him, assuming the Revis trade of course.

Team: Patriots

Who do you want your team to draft.
A WR. There's plenty to choose from in the 2nd. I would hate for them to wait until the 3rd (or later) and end up with another practice squad player. Our failure to draft and develop any WRs over the past six plus years has caught up.

Who don't you want your team to draft.
Another CB who can't cover. Frankly, it's depressing watching our DBs play. I'm no football genius, but I'm pretty sure the goal shouldn't be to allow the receiver to catch the ball first and then tackle him.

Who could be the surprise pick? something we don't see in a lot of mocks or maybe you heard something, somewhere and its got you thinking.


After last year's pick of Tavon Wilson in the 2nd (48), nothing the Patriots can do will surprise me any longer

Titans

I want:
Bjoern Werner. It might just be my German heritage, but the Germanator is my dude in this draft. Of course that means the Titans will not draft him.

I don't want:
Jonathan Cooper. I've seen this guy picking up a lot of steam in professional and amateur mocks alike. I just don't like him over Warmack, and I don't like his value at 10 over guys like Warford, Long, Thomas, or Jones in the second or third. Especially since the Titans have signed Levitre, Turner, and Spencer so far this offseason.

Possible surprise:
Cordarrelle Patterson or Tavon Austin. The Titans have been very interested in WR all offseason. They've tried to trade Nate Washington, Kenny Britt is a speeding ticket away from a life sentence in jail (and a free agent after this year), and Munchak has proven he believes in a more wide open offensive attack than Jeff Fisher so it's entirely possible the Titans could go the wideout route.

Team: New England Patriots

Who do you want your team to draft.
A playmaking WR. I would love a WR that can aid our offense by bringing a vertical threat (Austin, Wheaton, Hopkins ).... or a guy that will allow us to have some mismatches on the outside (Allen, Hunter). A WR core of Amendola, Jenkins, and Donald Jones won't allow us to compete with Denver in the AFC.

Who don't you want your team to draft.
Hankins or Jesse Williams in the first. I would flip out if this were to happen.

Who could be the surprise pick? something we don't see in a lot of mocks or maybe you heard something, somewhere and its got you thinking.
Wheaton in the first, Jonathon Cooper if he were to fall, Cyprien in the first if they feel he can be that ballhawk in the secondary. Adrian Wilson and Tavon Wilson are best served in the box.

Bears

Want

Jonathan Cooper or Chance Warmack

The dream scenario would be for one of the top interior OLmen to fall and immediately step in and start.

Don't Want

Manti Te'o

Just NO.

Surprise


Cordarrelle Patterson or Tavon Austin

It would not shock me if Phil Emery added one of the dynamic speed options if he fell to them. Emery loves to talk about weapons and while the Bears WR core is big they could use elite speed.

Agree with every one of these. Though I will add that if the Bears stay at 20 and both OGs are gone, Patterson and Austin become my "wants". I think a big surprise could be taking a DT. Sylvester Williams would be a surprise, because the Bears have shown no interest.

Jets

Who:

Jamie Collins and Quanterus Smith - I like them as developmental guys for Ryan in his D. Collins is an ideal pick in the 2nd, and Smith in the 6-7 range would be a gift.

No:

I would prefer to stay away from Patterson.

Surprise me with:

Austin or a trade down for Cooper...Ace Sanders in the 4-6 range would be cool...Robert Woods or Jamie Collins would be a great surprise in the 3rd.

Seattle

No first round pick so talking 2nd and 3rd rounds.

Want Kyle Long. I like his toughness and versatility to play both G and T.

Don't want. jonathon Hanlins or some other big DT just because he is.

Surprise. Ryan Swope. I'd love a 4.3 guy who could alternate between the slot and out wide. They have Percy but Rice has some wear on the tires and Tate is a ####up if you aske me.

This is pretty much where I'm at, too. Unless Kawann Short falls to them or something, I'd like to get someone to push for that RT spot.

I could see this, too. But if I'm going to pick a surprise, it might be that they make a move to take a tight end in this draft. Zach Miller's getting paid a lot of money, but the return they've gotten hasn't been huge, and I could see them trying to find a guy to make a fixture of the Seattle offense, and with a deep TE class I could see them trying to make a move to get a player they want.

Team: New York Jets

Who do you want your team to draft.

Barkevious Mingo - Let me start by saying that i'm not sold on Mingo. However, given our draft spot and the 3-4 OLB class, i like his potential the best. I feel comfortable with him making the transition to the position, think he has the athletic ability to do it out of the guys who will be available to us.

Dion Jordan - I would prefer him to Mingo, based primarily on his versatility. I think he is a worse pass rusher, but has the tools to improve. His body type looks like it can add size, and he has long arms. He likely won't be around, but if he is I hope he is the pick.

Who don't you want your team to draft.

Ziggy Ansah - I honestly feel like this would be a big project, much more similar to Vernon Gholston than is being discussed. He is a great athlete who measured out well, but moving to 3-4 OLB would be a big change. I see this selection a lot, and it worries me.

Jarvis Jones - I don't like him at #9. I don't see the body or athletic ability to make an impact. Add his medical, and I don't see it worthwhile at #9.

Who could be the surprise pick? something we don't see in a lot of mocks or maybe you heard something, somewhere and its got you thinking.
Tavon Austin - This would be very high for someone of his size, however the Jets offense is basically void of playmakers. Yes Hill has potential, but you definitely can't count on him yet. Yes, Holmes is back. He is solid but not a long-term answer and not necessarily a big playmaker anymore. Kerley is solid, but not a gamebreaker. Tavon Austin would instantly bring some playmaking to the team, something the roster is lacking.
Cordarrelle Patterson is the more likely selection though, given he has the size to be a #1 later on.

Star Lotulelei - If he falls they may have him as their best player on the board. He could help fill at NT, and also be very effective at DT in a 4-3. Rex loves his DL and if he is the best player on the board it could happen.

I want: Arthur Brown

Obviously we have a need at ILB (though it's not quite as dire as some would believe) and Arthur is by far the my highest rated player at a position of need and he could realistically be available. It's not even that I want an ILB that much, I just want Arthur. Some may doubt his size in a 34 but we've seen guys who were perceived as 43 guys only like D-Wash, Sean Lee, Bruce Carter, etc. have a lot of success playing 34 ILB. His speed inside would give us something we haven't really had since Ray wasn't old.

Do not want:
Manti Te'o/Kevin Minter

Yes, ILB is a need but it's also not a premium position. I just don't think there's much of a difference between these two and someone they could find at the end of the 2nd or even 3rd round. Ozzie and staff has also had a lot of success finding productive ILB's later on in the draft. I wouldn't be throwing the remote if they picked one them but both these guys strike me as solid 2nd values so I would be disappointed if we forced them in at 32.

Surprise: Terron Armstead

Bryant McKinnie is a free agent and even if he returns he'll only be a one year stop gap. Although he is competent on the left side, we all know The Blindside is much better off at RT and a free agent next year anyway. Although if we drafted him I expect we'd try to bring him along slowly, Armstead has legit left tackle length and athleticism and could be the answer at a potential need area.

It's funny, you and I agree on a lot of guys, but we disagree on Minter. I actually really like Minter and think he'd be a pretty good fit and value for you guys at 32. He might not the BPA, but I think considering the fit and somewhat of a need at ILB, he'd be a good pick.

Or, you guys could draft Steve Beauharnis in the 6th and he'd wreak havoc for you guys

I don't dislike Minter and I'd rather have him over Te'o. But with that being said he's a smallish LB who runs 4.8 and it feel like taking him would be taking an ILB just to take an ILB when there a lot of very comparable options who can found later on - especially for a team that thrives at evaluating LB's. I wouldn't be mad if we took him at 32, it would just be a very bleh pick for me.

Te'o doesn't fit with the ravens at all, either. Idk, I just kinda like Minter for some reason. A fan of his. See a lot of Antonio Pierce in him.

Trust me on this though, Steve Beauharnis would be a PERFECT fit in Balti, IMO. Not sure how much you've watched him, but I think he'd fit what you guys like in ILB's to a T

Haven't watched him at all but I see he has some extensive highlights on youtube so I shall check him out.

Team: New York Giants

Who do you want your team to draft.
I want Ziggy Ansah, but he won't be available. My next choice is Xavier Rhodes. We need another CB for the future and he's the best bump and run guy in the draft. If he's not there, Arthur Brown, Tank Carradine, Oggletree, Fluker, Warmack, Cooper, Richardson, Vaccaro, basically we have a ton of options.


Who don't you want your team to draft.
Manti Teo. Please God. No. Don't want him at all. He's not even a great player. Always has been overrated.

Who could be the surprise pick? something we don't see in a lot of mocks or maybe you heard something, somewhere and its got you thinking.
Tavon Austin. The whole Cruz situation is not settled, and there's a good chance we can't resign both Cruz and Nicks to long term contracts. Austin is a playmaker who can play the slot for us in case we lose Cruz or don't think we can keep him for the foreseeable future.

Chargers:

Want:
Barkevious Mingo/Star Lotutlelei: While OL may be our biggest need, we need to get an impact player with this pick and that seems to be only defensive players at this point in the draft. Dont think OG willl make a big enough impact for this high of a pick and OT there's probably nobody good enough to be worth the pick, so go either pass rush, or plain BPA respectively with these two guys. Mingo is a guy who has elite pass rush potential, and can come in right away and be a pass rush specialist, working his way to being a starter. Star is a stud on the field, he's been cleared medically so if he drops this far, i would REALLY love to see him come in and make one of the best young DL's in the league with Liuget/Reyes/Star.

DO NOT WANT:
Lane Johnson: This guy just has never impressed me. He's a great athlete with a good mean streak, but thats all i see. His playing strength is really bad, and he really isn't as good as expected in pass protection as you would expect, if you get a guy who can match him off the ball, or has anything that resembles a bull rush, he will get beat and made look silly. He really just looks like a weaker version of Jason Smith to me...

SURPRISE:
Desmond Trufant: Depending on how our FO sees our CB's, this could easily be a pick. This guy fits our Off man heavy scheme to a T (actually looks on paper very much like Derek Cox who we just picked up). We potentially need a starting CB opposite Cox depending on how we see Shareece Wright and Marcus Gilchrist playing outside. He could be a guy who rises up boards, much like Stephon Gilmore did last year.

Dolphins

Want
Desmond Trufant -- He's a playmaker. Dee Milliner is more solid all-around, but I like Trufant's ability to flip games with turnovers.

Don't Want
Barkevious Mingo -- Love his ability, but I think he's one of the biggest boom/bust players in this draft.

Surprise Pick
Star L. -- Miami is strong at DT, but both Randy Starks and Paul Solai are signed for one year. If a player like Star is there that could be a surprise pick. Cooper is another guy that fits the Dolphins scheme.

Green Bay Packers

Want: Looking at the realistic options, I'd love for the Packers to select Syracuse OT Justin Pugh. I know most don't view him as a left tackle in the NFL, but I believe he can do it and do it very well. Marshall Newhouse is a free agent after this season (hopefully the team allows him to walk), and Derek Sherrod looks like he may never play football again. The protection of Aaron Rodgers the last couple of years has been poor and the blindside protector has been a non-solution to the issue.

Don't Want: Margus Hunt appears to be a "guaranteed" first rounder by many sources, and I pray to God his landing spot his not Green Bay. He possesses all the physical measurements for a guy who could be outstanding, but his tape at SMU is underwhelming for a player with his abilities. Throw in the fact that he is already 26 years old with his raw games, and he doesn't add up to a first round investment.

Surprise: The Packers allowed Greg Jennings to walk in free agency, and following the 2013 season they may be without James Jones and Jermichael Finley as those two head to free agency. One of the positives throughout Aaron's career is that Ted Thompson has always provided him with plenty of weapons to throw to and a receiver may be the direction the team goes in round one. Quinton Patton possesses the skill set Thompson targets in his receivers given his good size, hands, and route running.

I see it too, except probably not in round 1 based on Teddy's history.
He got Jennings in Rd 2, Jordy Rd 2, Jones Rd 3, Finley Rd 3.... of course Driver was a 7th, (before he was GM)... I just doubt he uses his 1st pick on a WR.

AZ

Do: OL/OLB - BPA
Don't: QB/OG
Surprise: Star Lotulelei, should the top 3 OTs and OLBs somehow go before pick 7 I guess I could see star being the pick, Dan Williams is a FA next year and has been constantly injured plus he can rotate in at both DE spots

Ugh. EVERYBODY hates Margus Hunt but me. And whoever takes him in the 20s because it's going to happen. His tape isn't bad at all WTF AM I MISSING!?!?!?

And it's funny about Te'o. No one wants him either but he's going semi-high (I still don't buy it that he's a lock for the first though). Yikes I just had the thought he might fall to Seattle in the 2nd...

I have watched a lot of Hunt's games. For three years now they have been talking about how he has the great skillset and freakish athleticism, but is new to the sport. But he hasn't really gotten any better over that time, so why should we think that he will suddenly "get it" and become a star at the next level? Occasionally he makes a fabulous play that makes a coach's mouth water, but more often than not he gets washed out of plays, plays out of position, etc. This suggests to me that when he does make the fabulous play it is because he guessed right, but for the most part he is really confused about what is going on and what his assignment and responsibility is. He is very good on special teams, and will block a couple of kicks every year at the next level.

Also, he will be 26 at the start of next season. While I am not usually against the older player, this does concern me with him because I think his project time is longer than most, and I'm not really sure that he will ever get it. Athletically he is a 1st rounder, but as a football player he probably deserves to go very late. I personally value him in the 5th/6th round.

Yes, because I am sure SMU has one of the best coaching staffs that knows how to get the most out of a freakish athlete that never played the game before almost on the level of an NFL team that can turn basketball players with 17 catches into superstars (which btw, took 1 year?). /end sarcasm. Smu hasn't had the best defensive coaching in the past few years, BYU has better coaches on that side of the ball and they didn't even know what to do with Ansah for a while.

I don't see how he hasn't improved, he almost matched the amount of sacks he had the previous 3 years his senior year, off by .5 with 8. His tackles for loss also went up. His first few years he was mainly known as a guy who blocked kicks, he also had his first interception and the highest amount of pass deflections in his career with 3, and also had 2 forced fumbles, something which he didn't do the first 3 years. He looked good in the bowl game and seems to have always stepped it up in bowl games except for one year, I think he put up 6 career sacks in bowl games and he sacked Manziel which isn't easy to do.'

There have been conflicting reports on Ansah's actual age as well, and its not like defensive linemen only play for 3 or 4 years, there are many who play well into their 30's. I mean Casey Hampton is like 35, Justin Smith is 33 and still playing at a high level, I mean it seems like he just hit his peak in the 30's, before that he was doing slightly above average as a LDE in the 4-3.
