Summary: I really like Black as an offensive line prospect and should make some team very happy in the second round. Teams need linemen who can play three or more positions, and Black can be a very good starter at guard or right tackle. He lacks the athleticism to play left tackle in the NFL, but he should find a nice home somewhere.
Player Comparison: Vernon Carey. Carey lacked the athleticism to play left tackle, but has been a dominant run-blocker for the Dolphins at right tackle, and also gives versatility as a guard.
Ik a lot of people are saying the 49ers will take a qb, but there is no way we should take one right there. He will just be unsuccessful. I really like solomon Thomas and i think he would be a great pick.Right now he doesnt seem like the #2 pick but his stock is going to continue to rise. Hopefully we can trade down a few picks and pick him and select a qb in next years loaded class. If we arent able to land thomas i wouldnt mind going mike williams or corey davis
DARRAIN WINSTON (Baker Kansas)? Should look at him. Had 54 tackles 2 TFL 10 INT 21 PBU 2 FF & 2 FR. How are you missing all these players at all these different positions? There's so many players at so many positions that you miss. Only way you seem to notice them is if we point them out.
Pre-Combine and Pro Day mock draft for the 2017 NFL Draft. Since the season isnt done yet there are still plenty of moves to take place before the draft so these selections could change. This years mock draft is the second I have done. Last year I created one, and while it was awesome, alot of teams shook it up early and nearly nobody could have predicted what happened. Im back at it again with a what I would do draft as of now and after the combine and pro days wrap up I will change it to what I think will happen. I hope everyone enjoys this and gets an idea of the prospects many people have their eye on as my draft is based off mostly what I have heard from scouts. Admittedly, as the prospects go, my words of praise for the prospects get a lot less. Enjoy!
