In my opinion, Timmons would seem to be the heir-apparent to Farrior rather than Foote. This, of course, would assume that Farrior will retire soon which isn't a given even though he's getting up there in football years since he's still playing at a pretty high level.
I actually like Foote. I used to think he was a weak link out there but he has grown into a quality starter.
Regarding your mock:
Do you think that Schuening is capable of playing Center? There doesn't seem to be any no-brainers at the center position in this draft, so perhaps a Guard like this guy could make the transition. Oneill Cousins is another example where it seems possible that he could transition to Center - anyone have thoughts about Cousins as a Center?
As far as your UDFA's go (and again focusing on the Center position), I prefer Fernando Valasco of Georgia over Doug Legursky. The guy is a monster and has only been playing the position for one season after converting from Guard. He managed to become 2nd team all-SEC with just this one year of experience at the position.
It would be nice to see Otah fall that far in Rd 1 but that is no longer looking likely. It'll be interesting to see how he does this offseason leading up to the draft. Does anyone know if he's invited to the Senior Bowl?????
