    Solid Mock Brad,
    As a Lions fan I would be happy with Malcolm Brown and PJ Williams. Both are areas of need. Brown and Williams would but the DL and Secondary in solid situations. Round 3 you would have to look for Tevin Coleman or Laken Thomlinson and that would make a home run of a draft. Kind of sad if Melvin Gordon would be passed on as he is my favorite prospect for the Lions but I know RB is a deep class and does not make sense to spend a Round 1 pick on. What do you think PJ Williams roof is? For the Browns Round 1 would be an amazing start to the draft….not sure about Funchess though. Seems like a guy without a position which on some offenses work but I am not sure about the Browns. Bryce Petty caught my eye. Thoughts on him as a Pro?

      Looks like you could have a shot at P.J. Williams in the 3rd after his DUI bust. That’s about where I value him anyway. I didn’t love Williams in my tape study – have a 3-4 round grade on him. Elite size and ball skills but his technique leaves a bit to be desired. I haven’t understood the 1st round talk on him. I don’t love his teammate Ronald Darby either – he’s getting a lot of media buzz right now. I’m not sure about Funchess either. I like him more as a flex TE, slot WR…ala Jimmy Graham. Petty is pretty solidly my 3rd QB. Unfortunately I don’t love any of them this year. I think he’s a solid value in round 3 or 4 but no way he makes it there. Nice size, solid athlete, and nice arm. Worry about his transition and misses are pretty bad. My biggest problem is you don’t see him throwing his receiver open. Partially because he never has to in that offense but ball placement is just so-so. If someone gets him in the 3rd I wouldn’t argue that selection.

        What about Quinten Rollins?

        • bradc11

          I think he’s going to be a safety. I don’t love his chances of being a top flight CB. That said, he’s scratching the surface and could wind up being a really solid centerfielder.

    Good mock overall, personally I don’t think Tennessee takes Mariota, but I see the logic there. It pains me that Winston is going to go first because I really just don’t think he’s going to be a franchise QB. He’s a high risk high reward gambit because he might be Jamarcus Russell or Byron Leftwich, but then again he might be Ben Roethlisberger and I guess if you’re Tampa Bay and you need a QB then take him if you think he’s your guy (I’m personally still in the Mariota is better camp but that’s a personal opinion that has no bearing on what Tampa may do). I’m surprised just how high you have Vic Beasley. I like beasley a lot as well, but not over Dante Fowler or Shane Ray (and I would say Gregory as well had the whole failed drug test thing not taken place to cause a ding to his stock). I think all 4 should be gone by pick 13, just which order is the question. If Williams is there Oakland has to take him, but I think Amari Cooper would be the best choice if he isn’t (and I don’t expect him to be), because building around Derek Carr should be priority number 1 and Cooper is going to be a bona fide beast in my opinion. Thank you for being on the Perriman bandwagon like I’ve been all year, good call! I think San Diego would take Melvin Gordon over Gurley because I don’t think they would want to burn a pick on another injury prone running back after dealing with Ryan Mathews for the past 5 seasons, though Gurley is a better prospect than Mathews ever was. As a patriots fan I’d be ecstatic if Jalen Collins was available at 32 for us.

      I think Mariota goes in that spot. Whether it’s Tennessee or someone else, I see him going two so I’ll probably stick with this pick through the draft. I’m with you on Winston. I prefer Fowler over Beasley but I see Beasley as a perfect fit for JAX. I’m not real high on Ray…don’t think he’s a great transition to 3-4 OLB. He doesn’t have great lateral agility (little tight hipped). For that reason, I’m hoping my Browns aren’t intrigued by him if he slides to 12. We are on the same page with Williams and Cooper for Oakland. I see Gurley as such a good prospect that I take a shot on him high because the reward is so great. I went back to watch all his games over the last two years – He’s special. Perriman caught my eye in ’13 and played ’14 with some of the worst QB play in CFB.

        Yeah as a UCF fan Id rather not talk about the qb play from this season (but hey we did have bortles!) but I think Holman has some potential with his physical skillset (not nfl potential, but capable college starter potential). Perriman is a beast, though and I’m absolutely rooting for him. I’m gonna beg to differ with you on Ray. I really like him and I think he’s just a really good football player. Maybe he is a little stiff in the hips but there are plenty of nfl starters at the 3-4 olb position who don’t drop in coverage often and on running downs will often put their hand in the dirt anyway (Terrell Suggs, Demarcus ware, and Justin Houston come to mind). Also I like his story (watched the ESPN feature on him and it was really moving) so maybe I’m just biased and rooting for him to succeed but I really think the kid is going to be great. Don’t get me wrong I like Beasley and I agree that he fits great in what Jacksonville wants to do (so would fowler though) but I personally would take Ray. I wouldn’t question it if someone went the other way that’s just my view. They’re both studs. Gurley healthy is a freak and a top 6 pick at least. But Gordon is a top 25 prospect too and I think Gordon is safer because of the lack of injury concerns and I still think he’s an immensely talented back. I see where you’re coming from and I have no issue with it though because gurley is a Mack truck that moves like a Ferrari. He’s just dinged up and I don’t think a team like San diego wants to deal with a potentially injury prone back.
