Mock Offseason 1.0

**NOTE** Thanks to messjunk for pointing out that McElroy isn't PS eligible and that I forgot Clint Boling.

This mock is done with the assumption that Hue gets his guy and Darren McFadden is signed to a 2-3 year deal at a reasonable price, (not cheap, but does't break the bank to where we can't extend our upcoming FA's) considering his injury history and connection with Hue (best statistical season was under Hue in 2011)

Our guys that are brought back AND make the 53 man roster (will be posting one at the end of this) are as follows:

Andrew Hawkins (RFA)

Dane Sanzenbacher (RFA)

Vinny Rey (RFA)

Mike Pollak (One Year)

Taylor Mays (One Year)

**NOTE** I have us bringing back Ghee, Smith, and Pressley on one year deals as well, but they end up getting cut, also, Crocker heads back to retirement but is kept on speed-dial

NFL Draft

Round 1: Zach Martin OT, Notre Dame (Yes, I know he is a bit undersized and has shorter arms, but I still think he stays at tackle in the NFL. Worst comes to worst, you can move Whit back outside and you have a heck of a guard for years to come.)

Round 2: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

Round 3: Kareem Martin, DE, UNC

Round 4: Logan Thomas, QB, Virgina Tech (I understand some will hate this pick, and I completely get where the are coming from, but hear me out. The kid has shown flashes of greatness (just put on his bowl game against Michigan), his size and arm strength is outstanding, his mobility is definitely a plus, and his accuracy wasn't awful during Senior Bowl practices. I know the guy has some awful tape, believe me I do, but I feel this team is in a position to take a chance on him in the 4th and see if we can mold ourselfs the next Roethlesberger or Newton. Is it likely? Probably not, but I like the kid and think it is well worth the risk. Something inside me just keeps telling me he is going to pan out.)

Round 5: Tyler Larsen, C, Utah St (Should go higher than this but centers are undervalued in the draft.)

Round 6: Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma (Tore his ACL in Senior Bowl practices this week, IR him for the season)

Round 7: Gator Hoskins, H-B, Marshall

53 Man Roster

QB: Andy Dalton, Logan Thomas

RB: Darren McFadden, Gio Bernard, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Ced Peerman
