Why is there a 5th round listed on the OP of the Mock Draft thread. I thought we were done after 4?

@Soda put it in. Since I'm making about a third of the 4th round picks, I'm guessing the fifth round won't last long. I won't be playing time keeper and Scot McCaughlin: GM Mercenary anymore.

Lack of combine testing makes him a risk if scouts didn't think he had NFL type quickness/athleticism before.

Linebackers have really slid in our mock. Terrill Hanks and Ben Burr-Kirven are other still out there. I'll be interested to see how the real thing shakes out in two weeks.
True, but he’s been able to workout with teams lately. He just did with the Rams yesterday, I believe.

He was still recovering back in February, but I’d imagine he’s been doing athletic testing on team visits.

Willing to do a mock draft pick substitution for anyone who isn’t down for another pick as long as BBK is still on the board.

My draft board at the bottom of the third going into my last pick was:

1. Lonny Johnson of Kentucky - Love his tools all over the defensive backfield, but he is a little raw.

2. Kaleb McGary of Washington - Starting right tackle right now, with better coaching, who knows? Athletic, big and aggressive is an easy gamble.

3. Drue Tranquill of Notre Dame - He may not blitz as well as Jaime Collins, but he is much smarter and is great in short zone and man pass defense.

4. Maxx Crosby of Eastern Michigan - Watch a highlight tape. I bet he gets swallowed up on occasion, but his footwork on the edge is filthy.

5. Ben Burr-Kirven of Washington - Almost as good as Tranquill as a pass defender, but also a tackling machine in the run. His only fault is height and to a lesser extent weight. No idea why all these other linebackers went over him.

I thought this was a really well done mock draft. Seems like people picked from the gut, were logical, and did some decent research. You can't really ask for more fun as an NFL draft nerd. Thanks for all the participation this year.

I'm not gonna shit on anybody's draft, but I would like to dish out some positivity. There were a few drafts that really stood out to me.

Draft Winners:

1)New England Patriots-
Trading for Delanie Walker, and then drafting Caleb Wilson was really the answer New England needed with Gronk retiring. They also nailed every pick IMO. Willis, Whiteside, and Little were all good value picks. And I think Polite will prove to be good value as well.
2)New York Giants- I might look stupid down the road for this praise. This was a massively important draft for NY, but I liked all of their decisions. People are down on Haskins, but I'm not. I think he has a ton of potential, and I also think AJ Brown was the best receiver in this draft, which the Giants need. Furthermore, Ya-Sin, Evans, Lamar, and Moreland were all near the top of my board when they got picked. A fine, fine draft IMO.
3)Arizona Cardinals- Again, going out on a limb here. I think Murray will be good, but if he's not, there was still a lot to like about Arizona's draft. Harry, Winovich, and Love were all good values, and should help out whichever team actually drafts them. Also, I think they nailed the Rosen trade, so there's that.
4)Miami- Sweat at 13 was a steal, as was Tranquil whenever they got him. Less sure about the rest, but seemed like good picks at the time. Getting Fuller in that trade was nice for them as well.
5)Washington- Am i the only other person who thought trading for AJ Green was smart? Also, they got a potential franchise quarterback in the 4th. Long, Saunders, and Cashman all in the 3rd. Addressed the o-line. I was thoroughly impressed with Washington's draft.

Honorable mentions:

Detroit
- I liked the Stafford trade for them. I also like Greedy Williams at 19. Metcalf and Harmon should be a nice WR tandem for them for a long time. They can figure out QB next year. Meanwhile, Mariota has a year to play for his NFL life, maybe he responds well.
Green Bay- I liked the Collier and Warring picks. Not sold on Butler one bit, but he couldn't have gone to a better place. Don't feel like betting against any picks made by someone who probably did the most research. Or at least has the most convincing conjecture.
San Francisco- When you draft the best player (non-QB) in the draft, you're a winner. Bosa will be a beast, and I'm sure Keys did his homework.
Cleveland- Loved the Gardner-Johnson pick, not sure about the rest. I would have done it way differently, but I thought you did well with the Poop Dick trade, even if you could have done better:chuckle:. Getting back Ito was neato.

Sorry to leave anybody out..

I’m pretty happy with how the first round shook out for me, even though I didn’t get my hands on an LB which was pretty much the whole entire point of the trade to 16.

I’m not really super high on a lot of the CB’s and the value didn’t really do it for me so Ferrell felt like a good alternative to once and for all shore up the edge, and I’m pretty confident that Burns will turn into the Premier edge russer in the class. Fant seemed like a no-brainer and Sanders, while maybe not being a great value pick, was still the Best RB left on the board at that point and it adresses a Big position of need.

Outside of Those picks I had absolutely no idea what I was doing.

You do realize zero DB's were selected before 16, right? :chuckle:
