I'm guessing you don't like their number 4 pick! Mike Williams falling all the way to #12 does seem unlikely.

No, I don't want the Bears to take Benson, but either way I don't see Edwards or Williams falling out of the top 10.

Also, if all of the "big three" RBs go top 5 we can almost guarantee the Henry/Shelton trade between Buffalo and Arizona.

Don't know why the Titans would take a QB in what is considered a weak year for QBs when Volek has proved he is at least servicable for now.

Rogers, who is 1.1 on 50+% on most drafts, lasts past five?
Not likely.

Actually, I really like this mock. Nothing is too outlandish (Mike was slotted to go mid to late first round, if you remember correctly, just a couple months ago). I don't like the Bears taking a RB, but it could happen... A lot of pieces fit, and some interesting choices are thrown in. I applaud their effort at improving their crappy mocks.

I dont think its the greatest, but really nobody can be that good at predicting a draft. There will be plenty of movement and surprise picks.

Every mock I see has CIN taking Travis Johnson from FSU, but we already signed one FA DT, and resigned another. CIN in my opinion will go LB unless we sign Jamie Sharper, and if we do sign Sharper, we could go any direction.

Last year nobody thought S. Jackson or K. Jones would fall as far as they did, and if someone had that in their mock they would have been considered foolish.


Dont get me wrong though, this draft does have some bad picks in my opinion, but come draft day they may not be so far off. Well besides that TEN pick.... :-b

Agreed, I've seen a lot worse. They have some risky picks in there, but nothing that is unfeasible.
