    Quick little mock

    Figured I would try my hand at one of these. Don't think it's too far fetched. Let me know what you think.

    I am also assuming that we will add a rb and de in FA

    Round One- Julio Jones WR. Best wide receiver on the board when we picked. It was painfully obvious that Sam needs some deep threats who can stretch the field. Our receiving core is a bunch of guys that we have bundled together to make something work, but it won't function together for much longer.

    Round Two- Mark Herzlich OLB. Everyone thought he was going to be a first round talent or perhaps even a top 10 talent when he got drafted. Unfortunately he was diagnosed with cancer. He has made a recovery however and is moving forward. Some people will say that he's not the same player and that he will never be. However given the fact that we knew how he played and that he could return to that form again, it is well worth the risk. Even if he does not return to his previous form, he will still be a solid player.

    Round Three- Kendrick Ellis DT. Let's face it, our line is aging and Fred Robbins won't be with us for that much longer. So why not replace a mountain with a bigger mountain? Would be a monster in the run game and a disruptive force in the pass game. Could go before this, but his character concerns will prevent that. How he does in interviews will really determine where he lands on draft day.

    Round Four- John Moffitt OG. You want a mauler in the run game you say? I give you John Moffitt. At 6'4 323lbs he is quite a large man. He comes from a system where running the ball is an important part of the game. I think he will suffice very will to fix our OG and running between the tackle problems.

    Round Five- Pierre Allen DE. After stepping of the light of Ndamukong Suh, he posted a solid set of stats. Nothing really about him is flashy or impressive. All around solid player. For him it's all about potential. He could turn into someone who plays like a first round pick or become a rotational guy. With Spags history of defensive lineman i think the first option may be a reality.

    Overall, I think it looks pretty good. I question whether Ellis is a fit for this team due to character issues, but the only other thing that really stood out to me was this...

    Perhaps, but IMO, not in the second round. Maybe in the third or fourth, but I think the second round is too risky for a guy who, while he was very talented and productive prior to injury, has yet to show he can return to that form.

    I too think that Ellis has some red flags going for him. Thats why I think the interviews will be the determining factor. If he seems to be mature and remorseful, then I think he would be a good addition. If he doesn't fit the four pillars, then I don't want him near the team.

    As for Mark, I will give you that maybe that it a little too high to take him. In my mind, it was a win-win situation. Either he returns to his all-star form and dominates at the nfl level, or he can not return to that level but can still play well. Lets not forget that in addition to being physically gifted, he has been described as mentally gifted as well. Even if he were only to turn into an okay outside linebacker, he would still be smart. I saw this as an upgrade over what we currently have at the outside position

    I stand right next to Nick here. Overall I like the draft, just I prefer to take Herzlich in round 3 or 4. He will drop big time because of the cancer he had. Poor kid, I love him though.
