S3 Mock Draft Listen, I’m TMFL’s “draft guru”. I don’t see why we need to have another opinion when I have shown year after year that I am the ultimate draft authority. However, thanks to the Kiper-McShay craze, TMFL has decided to bring in young hotshot journalist publik drunk to provide an alternate take. This guy has blown up thanks to his “UTI Awards” that he introduced, but he is in unchartered territory here. Without further ado, we present to you the first every Co-op mock draft. 1. Seattle Seahawks HSKR: 1) WR Stephon Curtis-Tennessee For once I actually believe Cheez will make his first overall pick. The Seahawks have a tough choice. They can take WR Stephon Curtis, who looks an awful lot like a certain fella named Rijo Drummond. CB Torri Mims is the other option here, proving the other guy making picks isn’t a complete nimrod at least. Publik: 1) Seattle Seahawks- CB Torri Mims Alabama You wonder why they brought me in? Stephon Curtis is a major reach here. He struggled at Tennessee and never truly developed into that #1 role. On to my pick. Torri Mims had his stock blow up after the combine. Already a playmaker on the field, Mims ran a 4.32 and had a great vertical as well. You just don't see this combination of size and speed at this position. No brainer here. 2. Cincinnati Bengals HSKR: 2. Cincinnati Bengals-WR DeAndre Galvin-Ohio State 6‘4 236 What the hell are the Bengals doing here? They deal AJ Green, so can they really be looking for anything other than WR or CB, the drafts hot positions? I just don’t see the logic in trading AJ Green for a rookie, even one who looks as great as Galvin. Galvin has all the tools, he’s tall, quick, and athletic. AJ Green is all that plus polished and has chemistry with Dalton. What gives? Publik: 2. Cincinnati Bengals- WR Deandre Galvin OSU Glad to see you come back to reality as you are right on almost everything you said. Galvin is a really good WR but he is no nor will he ever be an A.J. Green. Really think the Bengals are pulling the wool over our eyes here though, the organization has been on lockdown since the trade and no one has any feeling what's happening. 3. Indianapolis Colts HSKR: 3. Indianapolis Colts-DT Coco Walker-Alabama 6‘3 309 The Colts REALLY need OL help, but this draft doesn’t look to have any surefire top 5 picks at that position. I agree with publik that the Colts are going to look DL next but I just don’t think Jeffery is the right guy here. Walker is versatile and could play in a 4-3 or 3-4. He stuffs the run and rushes the passer. He is the whole package that is only seen in the elite DT’s like Dareus, Suh, and McCoy. Publik: 3. Indianapolis Colts- Adavinyan Jeffrey RE Geoegria I agree with everything you said about Coco, just don't think he is the guy here. Jeffrey is the best pass rushing DE in this draft and maybe to come out the last couple years. With his speed an all that raw potential he will be a force for years to come 4. Chicago Bears HSKR: 4. Chicago Bears-LT LaMarcus Cole-Florida 6‘5 314 There are holes everywhere so it’s hard to know where the Bears will go. They may be tempted to grab one of the many skill players left out there but the good teams are built in the trenches first and the Bears OL is terrible. They need a franchise LT to protect Kyle Scott if he is going to be the future and Cole has all the makings to be that guy. Publik one again proves he isn't completely incompetent at least as he has the right position pegged but the wrong player. Publik: 4. Ramorius Finley- LT Penn St You make good points for Cole so I'll give you a little credit there. The reason the obvious choice is Finley is his versatility. He played 4 positions successfully in college and has the footwork of a LT with the strength of the guard. Cole is the best player to just plug in at LT yes but the Bears need a whole new O-Line and Finley is the best place to start. 5. Tampa Bay Bucs HSKR: 5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-CB Torri Mims-Alabama 6‘1 213 I didn’t have the Bucs pegged to take a CB but there is no way Mims keeps falling here. My counterpart has him going #1 OVR and I agree he may have that kind of talent. He has another Crimson Tide teammate going here in Coco Walker who would look excellent in a Bucs uniform next to McCoy but I think he is the best DL in this draft and will be gone by #5. Publik: 5. Tampa Bay Bucs- Coco Walker DT Alabama Marcel Dareus. Enough said. Watching this kid's tape is impressive. He is a pass rushing nightmare. I agree he very well could be the best DL in the draft, but I have him falling to the Buccaneers here to create a nightmare for offensive lines. Publik: 6. San Diego Chargers- Dexter Blake QB Alabama The best QB prospect since luck and best Alabama QB in forever. This kid has a major arm, can read defenses, and has played in a pro style offense for the last 4 years. The Chargers may have made the move of the off season jumping two teams in need of a qb for a sure thing here. HSKR: 6. San Diego Chargers-QB Reid Weaver-Wisconsin 6‘4 223 Did you even watch the national championship game? How he has Blake as the top QB over Weaver is just beyond me. Weaver faced a defense that is going to produce at least 4 TMFL draft picks in the first 2 rounds, and he picked them apart. He has all the measurables and his interviews at the combine have been great. Weaver is the premier QB of this class. HSKR: 7. Houston Texans-QB Dexter Blake-Alabama 6‘4 231 I didn’t say Blake was a bad QB prospect, he’s just not as polished as Weaver. He led the nation’s top team all season long and was practically bred to be an NFL QB. He’s been working with QB coaches since he was 5 years old. This kid is the real deal and the Texans need to end the revolving door of QB’s they have had since their inception. Publik: 7.Reid Weaver- QB- Wisconsin Thank you for proving my point on Blake. Alabama's players had checked out for that game and Weaver was a product of the system. Look at all the weapons he had around him on offense. I think Weaver is a bust in disguise but the Texans will take him here and he will be the next Sanchez. HSKR: 8. Mexico City Diablos-CB Shaquelle Bernard-Wisconsin 6‘2 205 Poor, poor Diablos. They need a QB so bad and it must be so painful to see the draft’s two best signal callers go back to back before their pick. However, CB is always a major need, especially in a division that saw a star born in WR JT Patton last season. This is evidence of how much talent was on the field in last years title game as the 5th member of those teams is selected in the first 8 picks. Publik: 8. Mexico City Diablos- Toran Guy Wr Ohio State The Diablos were saved by the Chargers attempt at a trade "cock" block. Without the Chargers trading up Weaver would have fell to Mexico City here and they would be the team taking the bust. Guy had a bad combine which caused his stock to drop some, but I think this is the best pick for the Diablos. Kid has soft hands and catches everything. HSKR: 9. New York Jets-LT Gordon Hardman-UCLA 6‘6 308 At least this guy watches football and knows that the Jets have no choice but to go OL here. However, his obsession with workout warrior Ramarious Finley has clouded his judgement of the OL position. Hardman is another one in the mold of LaMarcus Cole. He has all the tools to be a bookend LT for over a decade in this league. The Jets wouldn’t be upset to get Hardman or Cole here. Publik: 9. New York Jets- LaMarcus Cole LT- Florida There is obviously a reason I was brought in and you're to full of yourself to see it. Cole is the best pure LT in the draft yes, but I do have him falling to 9 in a dream scenario for New York. Hardman isn't even on the level as the other two, your reasoning is as silly as your shaved eyebrows.
