POST Mayock Kodiak Draft by Grizzly
Published at 2/18/2018 7:01:13 AM
3 rounds, (1st round trades only) Bears total draft found at their newly acquired 3rd round pick.Understanding Mayock: Is he important..Hell yes; more important than Walt or Charlie...Hell no. Look at him as a confirmation to 95%+ of what Charlie and Walt have been telling us all year. Miller, NFL.com, Kiper,the others are they important? They all have their strengths and weaknesses from local to positionally or composite. Blesto, National, PFF, Ourlads, Hub Arkush, White, Easterling all contribute to the massive business of scouting and predicting (as do others). If you're a composite mocker (like me) how do you weight all of these? LOL that is for YOU to figure out! Comments and suggestions always welcome.

There are many, many reasons for this and of course this draft and FA are BIG ones. Browns may very well exceed what the Jags did last year and nope I am not from Cleveland, nor are they in my top 5 teams as favorites.
Obviously it is a QB here, I've had Rosen and though I could be wrong I'm sticking with him
Indy has an interesting decision to take Buffalo's offer or pick, I think they pick as at this point Jets and Denver are still hopeful they get their man. It should be an OLB here or Nelson (who they know well) unless Luck's medical is bad and then it is a QB. I think it IS a QB in a shocker
From Browns The rich get richer as Browns do take out Buffalo's offer. Allen got a boost from Mayock, but more importantly is he is really the only true cold weather QB in the top tier and believe me, that is important in Buffalo. Price 2018 pick 21, pick 22
Denver was boxed out of the two QB's they wanted and sure they might take Mayfield, but my guess is Nelson. They simply have too many QB's already and need to fix this first (in my opinion)
Yeah it might be Jackson (as NYJ are one of the most progressively racially balanced teams (kudos), either way jets fans will scream, but fortunately they still have plenty of ammo in this draft to fix other needs.
This should be a DE and for me Chubb is still the top dog for a 4-3 scheme
My Bears would love to use this pick but their biggest need is more picks and Jackson is in great demand. Toss out the Trade Value chart on this one as QB's as Bears get offers from Miami, Bengals,Zona,Bolts (and more) QB's flying off the board and the last of the top tier gores to.....Price 2018 2nd
Foster's best position is ILB moving him inside has huge benefits for the Niners
Tough call here REALLY tough call! But I think it is Brown over Fitzpatrick, Smith and Ridley and here is why: Sure they have been looking for a ILB force for three long years, but ILB i talented and deep this year. Fitzpatrick can play the CB, but most agree his best position is at Safety. Brown gets the nod besides the fact he LOOKS like he has two left feet because of his versatility (many like him at guard better than Tackle) but that versatility really pays dividends.
From Bears, via Browns via Houston My Bears definitely want Ridley or an OLB but Browns have the ammo to change that and do, trading back up for Fitzpatrick. Price 2018 2nd (via Philly) 2018 3rd . Browns need a Safety and two Corners (among other things) but imagine Peppers and Fitzpatrick deep... that is scary.
Well the cross state rivels just jumped Bengals pick.However the reality is Bengals really have OLine needs that must be addressed
From Redskins The Skins also need more picks and when the Wise Birds call they can't refuse Price 2018 3rd
The question for the McCarthy - Thompson brain trust is WR, CB, or an Edge not an easy choice here. It could be Davenport but something tells me they go for the CB instead because Ward is a sure bet and Davenport is not.
From Balty DT is a huge need for the Skins and Vea is a monster
