This mock draft looks like someone that plays a little too much madden. All the picks just seem to make too much sense early on. Where's the flair?! It has all the terminology to back up each pick, yet the term "blue chip" felt the need to be part of almost every team's report. For some reason the Raider's pick had by by far the longest explanation. You could just hear the excitement in the author's voice. In San Francisco's scenario, the word here popped up showing ameture level proofreading; something that Katie Lach would not be proud of. Overall good mock draft by Richeyboy. I'm sure there were plenty of pepsi consumed during the process.
@raven66 i like bosa better but if cowboys take bosa since cowboys didn't resign greg then i want ravens trade down to get OLB noah in first round overall 21th-32th or higher overall second round. I mean first round 6th overall is too expensive for ravens, right? And ozzie love to get more draft picks, make sense to trade down to avoid bigger contract than get other DB bust like elam and brooks (yes i meant it if ravens draft ramsey or other cb in first round, they will be truly bust. Ravens fans sorry, i know ravens need cb/s but final 8 games they already get better. I support fs webb and cb wright now, focus on OLB!)
Now that the SuperBowl order is set the omission is complete. Well guys here is my comprehensive well researched draft lots of different views and perspective, 3 rounds is coming soon but for now enjoy my mock draft, inviting for any comments. "You heard it here 1st" Most accurate draft ever.
Summary: Jeremy Beal is an interesting prospect in that while coming out of Oklahoma's hybrid defensive scheme can be a plus, where does he fit in the NFL on a team running either the 3-4 or 4-3? He was just good enough to be productive in a lot of areas at the collegiate level, but professionals are going to shut down a lot of what he was able to accomplish in Norman. For example, he is not really fast enough to make a smooth transition to outside linebacker and not really big enough to hold his down as a defensive end. His intangibles are his greatest asset because the team drafting him is going to do so because of his potential to overcome these obstacles.
Player Comparison: LaMarr Woodley. I hate to saddle Beal with a comparison like this, but in a lot of ways it fits. Woodley was another "tweener" coming into the draft with question marks about his speed and ability to convert to a 3-4 outside linebacker. He also has a similar frame. Beal would obviously love it if his career took the same path.
