7 Round Ratbird Mock
Hey...trying to figure out 2012 team needs while bored outta my skull during this lockout. Let me know what you think of this 7 round mock front to back. I counted every underclassmen that's been labelled as round 1-4.
1. Robert Lester*, FS, Alabama
Obviously, with Reed reaching that age where he's less effective, a suitable replacement should be drafted to replace him. Lester should be a pro bowler in future year.
2. Kheestan Randall, DE, Texas
DE is always a good early round selection for 3-4 defenses. He's a guy that can pressure the QB and open up holes for your many linebackers.
3. Chris Galippo, ILB, USC
Eventually, you'll need to replace Ray Ray. Galippo or Hightower could be a choice here. Either way, you need a replacement for Lewis with him inching into the twilight of his career.
4. William Vlachos, C, Alabama
Not a huge priority, but Vlachos can play either guard or center and would be a great addition to a great offensive line.
5. Jermaine Thomas, RB, Florida St
Just insurance should you not resign McGinest. A speedy back to compliment a tough bruiser like Rice.
6. Darius Fleming, OLB, Notre Dame
Not a complete need, but it will help your depth at the position. You lost Scott, so adding another good OLB for depth can't be a bad idea.
7. Josh Pleasant, CB, Kent St
Pleasant has the speed to be a pick-off artist at the next level. Always has his eye on the QB and jumps routes accordingly. Would be a safe pick in the seventh round.
Anyway...I hope you don't eclipse 5 wins this year, but I'm sure we'll see you in the playoffs. Best of luck.
