Fan Mock Infinite.0


Okay, here we go again. So much fun thinking of the possibilities. It is impossible to obviously consider all the possibilities. The dynamics are way to immense to project. But that's never stopped us before. So, here are four draft day trades I like in an effort to move down from 31 and 34. Obviously if someone we loved were available at 31...like Datone Jones...I'd take him instead of trading. But for the purposes of this mock, I'm assuming none of the players we love from Round 1 are still there for us at 31. So we trade down.

TRADE 1 - Pick 34 to Buffalo for Pick 41 and a 2014 3rd Rounder. Some are suspecting the Bills will feel the need to move up to the high second or late 1st to get Nassib. If so, I like the possibility of this trade happening

TRADE 2 - Picks 31 and 180 to Philly for Pick 35 and either 101 this year or Philly’s 3rd round pick in 2014. Philly too, may be feeling the need to move up to take their QB...i.e.- EJ Manuel.

TRADE 3 - Turn the newly acquired Pick 35 to Miami for Picks 54 and 82 (or a 2014 2nd rounder). Miami has a lot of picks. They've signed a lot of FAs and they may be looking for one particular player to take and add to all they've done this year in hopes of making a run at NE in the AFC East. The least likely of the trades I'm proposing. So if not Miami, perhaps someone else in the mid-fifties range.

TRADE 4 - Lastly, Trade Picks 164, 175, and 227 to Oakland for a 2014 3rd Rounder. Oakland is needing to simply start over. McKenzie wants to use the draft. There are tons of useful players even at those slots. He could use them well. I give this a slightly better than average chance of happening if proposed.

At this point we have two scenarios. Well more than that if you mix and match...but I'm going to assume we either take the current year picks or take the 2014 picks where there are options to do so.

OPTION 1 - We keep all the current year picks in those trades and don't take any 2014 picks where there is an option to take a 2013 pick. We have Picks: 41, 54, 61, 74, 82, 93, 101, 128, 131, 246 & 252

OPTION 2 - Wherever there is an option to take a future pick, we do it. That would leave us in 2013 with Picks: 41, 54, 61, 74, 93, 128, 131, 246 & 252. In 2014 we would have THREE additional third round picks and an additional 2nd rounder. Depending on how KC does in 2013, we’d have our own 1st, 2-3 seconds, 4-5 thirds and perhaps one more comp. 3rd for Goldson….or 9 picks in the top 100. I could definitely live with that.

Before I mock it up, I am well aware that some of the players I'm mocking up might not be available where I am selecting them. The fluidity of the draft will ultimately dictate how the draft plays out. I am trying to make sure, however, that I am picking within the range of where the so-called experts are projecting each player goes.

OPTION 1 MOCK:

Pick 41 - Eric Reid - FS - LSU: He has the size and talent to step in right away and help at FS. There are no questions about him being too small or being too raw or being from a small school and wondering if he can handle this level of play.

Pick 54 - Margus Hunt - DE - SMU: I hear the complaints that he's too old (26) and too raw. I don't buy it. I've seen the film. No, he's not likely to play much on run downs. But we all know how much the league is moving more and more towards a passing offense. Pressure on the QB is essential to winning in this league. We need more than just Aldon Smith. Hunt may be able to do much against the run, but my goodness can he pressure the QB. He is downright scary to QBs. He is so fast and so strong. Add to that his penchant for blocking field goals and I would enjoy seeing him in a Niner's Uni.

Pick 61 - Terry Hawthorne - CB - Illinois

Pick 74 - Brandon Williams - DT - Missouri Southern

Pick 83 - Travis Kelce - TE - Cincinnati

Pick 93 - Chris Faulk - ROT - LSU

Pick 101 - Aaron Dobson - WR - Marshall

Pick 128 - JJ Wilcox - SS - Georgia Southern

Pick 131 - Chritine MIchael - RB - Texas A&M

Pick 246 - Craig Roh - DE - Michigan St.

Pick 252 - G. Gilkey - OT/OG - Chardon St.

UDFA to pursue: T. J. Knowles TE Sacto St. / B. Kaufman WR Wash. / Dayne Crist QB Kansas

OPTION 2 MOCK:

Pick 41 - Reid

Pick 54 - Hunt

Pick 61 - Hawthorne

Pick 74 - T. Kelce

Pick 93 - A. Dobson

Pick 128 - JJ Wilcox

Pick 131 - Montori Hughes - DT - Tennessee Martin

Pick 246 - Craig Roh - DE - Michigan St.

Pick 252 - G. Gilkey - OT/OG - Chardon St.

UDFA to pursue: T. J. Knowles TE Sacto St. / B. Kaufman WR Wash. / Dayne Crist QB Kansas

Okay....let me have it. What do you like and dislike about both scenarios? Which one do like better? I am all for a differing combination of picks. THese are just ones I currently like.
