The big boys dominated round one, now it might be time we see a run on skill positions. There’s plenty of talent still remaining as two of our top ten players remain on the board.
Teams in need of corners are in business as there remains a plethora of options that could be had deep into the third round of the draft. It was our assumption that the corner class was one of, if not the most, deep position groups in the draft and it looks like that was a solid assumption.
Rest assured that the quarterbacks (and Manti Te’o) will carry the day on your choice of networks. The opening frame will be all about Geno Smith, Ryan Nassib, and Matt Barkley. Once they are off the board, and it should come fairly early, we can get to the drafting of some very good players.
The steals of the remaining talent are Arthur Brown, Jamar Taylor, and Markus Wheaton. Look for Brown and Taylor to come off the board early on day two with Wheaton remaining an option late in round two and possibly into round three.
Enough of the talking, here’s our second and third round mock draft.
