Summary: I really like Odrick as a prospect if teams view him as coachable. If he adds some strength, he has a lot of potential as a 3-4 defensive end, or 5-technique. However, he will NOT fit every 4-3 scheme. His bread and butter is getting up the field using his quickness and hands. Teams like Buffalo, Minnesota, and Indianapolis might be interested. Odrick is a second-round prospect, but a darkhorse for the first round.
Player Comparison: Tony Brown. Brown is a one-gap penetrator in Tennessee; he is very quick, has great hands, but struggles when teams run at him.
While we greatly differ on prospect rankings, something that should be assumed this early in the process, I see great thought was put into each pick and they all make sense when looked at through your perspective on the players. Great job!
Out of sheer boredom and the upcoming NBA draft has gotten me itching to make a new mock draft. Of course the NFL draft is a whole lot less predictable than the NBA draft, but also provides more success stories than the NBA draft. Again, I used schedules to determine each team's records and if you get upset with me just remember it's June and a whole lot can change by next April.
