    Sounds like Mayock thinks Fisher is going in the top ten.

    I think we'll draft a guard and a tackle. I'm hoping we sign Levitre in FA (and switch Incog to right for next season) but we still need another guard.

    Jonathan Cooper would be a tremendous fit for us, but I think #12 is a bit early and there's a lot of opportunity in the 2nd at other positions.

    Brian Schwenke of Cal blew me away in the Senior Bowl practise and the game itself. I went to have a look at his Cal stuff and I love this guy. Currently center in a ZBS, he's played both guard positions, he played guard in Mobile and looked born for it. Great use of hands - violent at times and well able to keep d-lineman off his body. Gets forward momentum quickly and creates holes with relative ease. He disengages very quickly and either freelances around the line or - more frequently - gets downfield in a hurry for second-level blocks and beyond. I've seen several plays where, having helped open the original hole, he is flattening some poor DB 20 yards downfield to open a lane for the ball carrier. Guy is surprisingly quick for his size.

    Can't find any record of any injuries and played every game as far as I can tell.

    He's a big guy girth-wise (yet not that heavy), he very occasionally overreaches and falls forward. He can occasionally go freelancing after the initial block and leave his gap assignment open. But in general his footwork is excellent and you could not say he was unathletic, despite first appearances. I love his familiarity with the ZBS, his mobility but most of all his hunger to keep playing to the whistle. Team-mates will love this guy.

    I'd rate him in the 3rd round, but I've no idea what he's projected at.

    At tackle, the guy I'm plugging is Reid Fragel of Ohio St. With the Bowl ban, the Ohio St. guys are a little under the radar and this kid is another level under that again. He only switched from TE to the O-line last offseason, but you wouldn't know it to watch him. Great technique and mobility - nothing flashy but consistent and tenacious. Probably better pass pro than run block from what I've seen, but both are good. Needs more time at the position, but he could be a quality starter in a season's time with 20lbs and more muscle on his frame. He's clearly smart and a hard worker. Philbin would love this guy.

    I'd take him in the late 4th early 5th.

    Schwenke was fantastic in the practices...a lot more shaky during the game itself especially as he had to block Kawann Short a fair amount.

    Xavier Nixon is a guy that is very, very underrated. He won in the Senior Bowl practices. He won against Damontre Moore. He won against Sam Montgomery. He won against Cornellius Carridine. He won against Jarvis Jones.

    Don't know what else he has to prove. Maybe he lost big time to Jadaveon Clowney. That's the one I haven't seen yet.

    trufant also needs to run well at the combine and pro day...but i expect that will happen...mid to late 4.4's

    fish is gonna get some competition from joeckel who has better feet and is a little bit more athletic and a great zbs fit and that lane johnson kid who moves like a te but at 300 plus lbs...lane johnson is an impressive athlete
    Fisher will go in the top ten.

    maybe...scheme could play into who goes first of the tackles...joeckel and lane johnson more zbs fits...fisher strikes me as more a power player...not quite as athletic...feet for a left tackle could be better...i know one thing he better not let guys get up and under his pads and let them make first contact or he's gonna struggle against guys with a high end get off ability to gain the corner and bull rush...like a cam wake for instance...

    as for schwenke i like him as a zbs center...pretty good move athlete anchors better than expected...i got no problem with a 3rd round pick there to a team that needs a zone center...but he's not the move athlete mike pouncey is...no one is at the position...i think he's got some versatility to man left guard and move pretty well but i would draft him as a center prospect...maybe give you some swing interior lineman stuff in a pinch

He gets beat a bit too much for me...but his length, physical tools, and ball skills are all well above average in my opinion.
    barkevious mingo
    luke joeckel
    lane johnson
    dee milliner (yeah i added him...tapes too good to ignore...but i have some reservations)
    jonathon banks
    kenny vaccaro (only safety i would even consider)
    keenan allen
    jonathon cooper
    cordarelle patterson (love the rac he provides...wonder though if he's a consistent win in his routes wr and a red zone win option)
    chance warmack

    as you can see i'm not in love with any pass rusher with that high pick but mingo...and if he got to me he would not pass...and if i can't have jake matthews who i think is the top tackle but not in the class i think i would pounce on lane johnson and his upside as the tackle i would prefer over anyone else for us...if i was gonna go tackle

    i also really like eifert a lot but not at #12...unless he runs a 4.5

    Fair enough, but Pouncey went at #15. We're talking 3rd round here and I think he's a good value pick there. I think he can be a pretty solid left guard.

    Too high for Vaccaro for me. Wish he would have gone to the senior bowl so I could have gotten a better look.

    Patterson I'm still iffy on. Physically he's top 15 all day but still don't know about him mentally. He was a non-qualifier out of high school went the JUCO route and then only one season at Tennessee...not like Tennessee is known for it's high academic standards, lol. (sorry all you Vols fans)

    Banks is another I'm iffy on. Again Physical tools are outstanding but he has 3 or 4 really bad games out there on tape. He may be just as inconsistent as Sean Smith but with better physical tools and can actually close on the ball. I think I'd rather take someone who's shown more consistency at #12. Trufant has been more consistent than Banks IMO.

    As much as I'd hate to draft another O-lineman when we need TD makers or guys that cause turnovers it would be hard to pass up the guys you have listed...would still tick me off.

    you wouldn't get much of an argument from me on any of that...banks is more about his upside his ball skills his length his tools than his tape...some of the tape is a head scratcher...he's got better tools and ball skills than sean smith...

    vaccaro is probably more in the 20 range...good looking cover safety though...

    patterson could blow up in your face...and i mean KABOOM

    i don't like the thought of an ot either but that johnson kid may well be the most talented kid on the board then...he moves like he's 250 and man what an athlete...makes it look pretty effortless...

    and i really don't like the thought of a left guard that high but warmack and coop would look really good in aqua and orange...
