My new mock draft...realism has set in....


We do not seem to be hitting FA with the gusto that most of here wanted to see. I think Dorsey is playing it smart given our cap space. We simply cannot afford the best FS (Byrd, 8-9 mil/yr), DE's (Lamarr Houston, probably 8 mil/yr), or even our own OG (Schwartz, likely 4-5 mil/yr). So we will instead wait for the leftovers. I only hope that we can sign a couple of impactful FA's, like Clemons, FS, and maybe a decent vet WR, given the deep market at that position.

Our draft -

1. David Yankey, OG, Stanford - rated as one of the top 2 guards along with Xavier Sua-Filo. 6'6", 315, and could probably pack some more on if necessary. Stanford has a rep for good linemen, and Yankey is another good one. If he is solid for us, he could solidify our line, and we could have one of the best O-lines for the next 5 years. Not a sexy pick, but I see us going this way with the departure of Schwartz and Asamoah.

3. Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss - 6'2", 221, runs a 4.40 40. Big, strong, and fast WR, may not make it this far, but it is possible in this deep class. He becomes our immediate #2 WR, and challenges Bowe for top spot.

4. Jonathan Dowling, FS, Western Kentucky, 6'3", 190, coverage safety, with IMHO as much upside as the Rd 1 safeties.

5. Justin Britt, OT, can play really any guard or tackle position, but played LT in college. Good depth as our swing tackle.

6. Taylor Hart, DE, 6'6", 281, Versatile and durable. Played NT, DT, OLB, about every where on the Oregon line. Projects well to be a 5-tech.

6. Dri Archer OW/WR/PR/KR - This guy is FAST, and can do it all. We need someone who can be our returner with McCluster and Demps probably gone.

Pretty heavy on offense, but I think that is where we are losing more starters to FA, so that is where I went as well. What do you think?
