new mock draft

Ok, I'm back with a brand new mock to look at. This time with analysis.

I used the fanspeak big board.

Here we go.

RD.1 Zack Martin OT Sr ND- my favorite for the first pick.

6'4" 308lbs

Great intangibles, good hand placement off the line, flexible/ light on is feet. Technically sound. 52 game starter, Team leader, perfect protector for Newton.

RD.2 Morgan Moses OT Sr VA- I took him because of a run on WR, felt he was the better value.

6'6" 325lbs, 35 3/8" arms

Strong massive frame not as polished(Technically) as martin, projects as a RT but he'd be a good bookend opposite Martin. Biggest weakness: speed/edge rushers.

RD.3 Cody Latimer WR Jr Indiana- We already visited with him. If he's there Gettleman takes him.

6' 3" 215lbs

Had 72 rec. 1096yds 9tds his Jr season. Showed steady improvement through his career. Excellent redzone target, physical, good blocker in the run game has a big catch radius. I see him as a low #1 high end #2 WR. Has some burst, will be a first down machine.

RD.4 Brandon Thomas G Sr Clemson- Taking a chance here. Torn ACL and all.

6'3" 315lbs 5.09 40/dash- Too good of a prospect to pass up (imo). To me looks to be the best G in the draft.

Great footwork,very versatile lineman. Can play either G position or T. Smart player, 2 time ACC Academic Honor Roll. Starter potential if not for the injury. Physical in the run game solid pass protection.

RD.5 Prince Shembo OLB Sr ND- We take another ND player here. Hometown kid played in Charlotte( Ardrey Kell )

6' 1" 258lbs 4.71 40/dash

Strong tackler, effective blitzer stunting or looping, high motor guy. Had 21 starts, amassed 14 career sacks with 19tfl. Could be a good time to find Davis' successor.

RD.6 Dontae Johnson CB/S Sr NC St.- Worth a shot here in the sixth as our combo cover DB.

6'2" 195lbs 4.45 40/dash

Good size for what teams are looking for. Decent speed, sure tackler. Versatility is key here. Excels in zone coverage.

RD.7 Lavelle Westbrooks CB Sr GASU- I went for another DB here, see what he's got.

6' 185lbs 4.57 40/dash

Not a lot of game stats, but he still picked up 7int's in his career.

Seems to find his way to the ball. Solid tackler, good closing speed. Could turn into a decent nickel corner.

Is it Good, Bad or Ugly .....................................GO.
