    Draft My Pre-Combine 2013 mock draft

    well, it happened. I pulled the trigger on a lineman at 12. Lane Johnson to me seems very much capable of making me forget about jake long. Living in the midwest I don't have to scour for much gamefilm on him, as he usually plays on the locals every week. It's not a sexy pick by any means, but he's a beast, and I can't argue with getting a beast at 12 overall. I liked eric reid at 12 as well. I'm probably going to take some heat for taking the ireland approach here, but I just couldn't pull the trigger on a patterson or banks here, and as a lot of you may already know I like mingo a lot, but I tried to be realistic in terms of draft order and I really think that despite it being a big fear or mine, rex ryan falls in love with mingo and he's gone before we pick.

    1. Lane Johnson OT oklahoma.. (see above)

    2a. Eddy Lacy RB Bama- perhaps a slight reach here, perhaps not... remains to be seen. I dont think bush is back, and lacy is a battering ram who scores. All in.

    2b. Tavon Austin WR WVU- dude is versatile, puts points on the board, will put asses in seats... seems like a win win for everyone. hopefully rounds out the WR corps in addition to gregg jennings.

    3a. Baccarri Rambo FS Georgia- Have liked this dudes game for awhile now. I think pairing him with jones will be a huge step forward for our last line of defense

    3b. Cornelius Carradine DE FSU- If you know me and have read any of my posts, chances are you know I have a hard on or several FSU players. Banking on carradine coming back from injury even if it takes longer than expected, to pair opposite wake, and perhaps take over when wakes time is up.. LOVE this dude

    4. Robert Alford CB SE Louisiana- debated hard addressing the CB spot much earlier, have always had trufant tabbed as our pick at 42.. not sure he makes it down that far, hawthorne got strong consideration in round 3, but alford is a guy who is going to catch more and more peoples eyes as this process plays out. He makes plays on the ball, and that is something this team desperately needs.

    5. David Bakhtiari OL Colorado- this name was actually brought up by another poster somewhere in either the draft forum or the VIP forum. I have been watching as much youtube videos as I can on this guy, and I have a cousin in colorado who is the same age as david and he is trying to line me up with some more tape. This guy moves pretty damn good. I'd like to see what he can do with our staff, and maybe he can make a transition to OG, I think he can move really good, I always wonder what bulking up will do to these kids' speed though.. but in the fifth round... even if he only ended up as depth, I think the pick sticks.

    6. A.J. Klein ILB ISU- I penciled us in here for a compensatory pick. I am really questioning whether klein will be here this late as I think he's much better than a 6th round linebacker. He's actually one of my favorite players in this years draft... he's plays in my home state and there is a lot I like about him. IMO, they don't come much smarter than AJ. He has a canny ability to read where the qb is going with the ball, and actually is pretty good in coverage. he's rarely out of position, is a sure tackler, this dude wraps... he sound fundamentally... no trying to lay the wood, he TACKLES, he's versatile in that he's played multiple LB positions. He's a high motor guy, balls to the wall in pursuit and is a gamer. he kind of reminds me of matt roth, although more the matt roth that played in iowa city and not south beach. Knocks on klein, will surely be that he's not all that fast, and he's not going to be a real tall guy. Sometimes I think his COD is adequate and other times I think it's ****ing terrible. I think with his passion for football, he'd be quite coachable, and a guy that especially for a 6th round pick, would be a steal.

    7a. Abry Jones DT Georgia- if not for the season ending injury to his ankle who knows where we are talking about this guy going. I still have my doubts he will fall this far, but as is the case with each of my other picks when I do my mocks, I try to compare them to a few different websites to see if my projections somewhat match where they pencil in people. He has a knack for getting in the backfield and disrupting plays and gets the occasional sack and has some pretty good TFL numbers over the past couple of years. Hard to say what happens to our DT in the next two years with starks a FA this year and soliai and odrick coming up in the next two years.

    7b. Had almost forgot about the trade with dallas. I penciled in dustin hopkins the kicker from florida state here. I have really soured on danny carpenter and his mullet, mostly because he had the inconsistency issue, and somewhat because of a classmate of mine, who ironically was named danny carpenter and had a mullet... and I despised the kid. at any rate, rookie kickers are cheap, and competition is good.

    comments, suggestions, rotten tomatoes... open to dialogue. this is about the 89th rendition of a pre combine mock draft I have done, and for some reason this one just stuck with me. which is weird because there is no patterson, or mingo, no allen or hopkins, and frankly I thought I'd never get a mock in that didnt' have a WR with either the first or second round pick at 42.

    on a side note, I do think that miami will go after jennings pretty hard. I fully expect him to be down here next season, and thats partially why I strayed from a WR pick inside the top 50. I think it's pretty solid... maybe I'm way off base... hahahaha... I'm off to bed, my brain hurts and I'm out of paper.

    Eddie Lacy? As much as I think this kid is very good we have Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas already. I am for drafting a RB but not for getting one in the first 3 rounds. There is plenty of value later in the draft. Lamar Miller is going to be the starter most likely next year and really show how dynamic of a player he can be.

    I like Tavon Austin and his speed but he is a slot guy and that's not what we need. We need outside guys. Eddy Lacy will go in the bottom of the first round. David Bakhtiari is a 2-3 rounder he will not fall to the 5th.

    alford if it's true he's 25 years old i guess 4th round is possible...if he's 23 though off what i saw i wouldn't wait that long...i would jump on that in the 3rd if i didn't have a corner by then...that kids got talent and tools...i'm a big fan of that kid...if he's 23 he may come back as a 2nd round value for me...i expect him to show well at the combine...runs in the 4.4's might be a round 2 guy if 23 years old...

    austin a lot of late round 1 buzz...too high for us given he's a slot and kick returner at the next level...and we have both...but swope in the 3rd i'm down with
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    Would feel really bad for Tannehill if this was the draft. No outside receiver, no TE...no weapons to throw to...still.

    I think if Bush leaves we definitely could use a guy like Lacy.....I would give him a shot with one of our third round picks. I have seen Bahktiari play for Colorado, my alma mater, and read reports on him in the Denver Post. He was really frustrated with CU, and being on a team that only won one game, but he played hard till the end, and was probably their best overall player. He decided to make himself eligible for this year's draft rather than trying to go through another rebuilding year in Boulder. I have seen Bakhtiari projected anywhere from the late 2nd to the 5th, but I think the 4th round is where he will go, and I have us taking him....he probably would be better at the Guard spot, but he is pretty versatile....6'4, 295.
