This is my latest updated mock draft based on current player rankings. Agree with what you like in it, and blast away for what you can't stand. Here goes...
1. Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State - can play man or zone coverage really well, has great ball instincts, and speed to do something with the ball in his hands. Oh yeah, he returned kicks, too, just in case he doesn't see the field right away.
2. Dominique Easley, DT/DE, Florida - strong, high motor, and one of the quickest first steps off the snap. He will be everything we love in a d-lineman. Oh yeah, and he brings a little attitude, too.
2. Trade - Cincinnati moves back into the 2nd round trading away this year's and next year's 3rd round picks to New England - Jimmie Ward, SS, Northern Illinois - this guy covers like a corner, but plays like a safety. Has averaged over 100 tackles a season for his career, while breaking up 10 passes and picking the ball off 7 times this year. He will be our new Chris Crocker as he can cover like a slot corner
4. Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia - can block, run, and catch. Physical runner who will complement BJGE.
5. Brett Smith, QB, Wyoming - here's our project backup. Accurate, with nice anticipation. A nice upgrade for the back-up spot.
6. J.C. Copeland, FB, LSU - this picks signifies the team's committment to the run, and he will be a good one.
6 Supplemental - Andre Hal, CB, Vanderbilt - nice coverage corner. Broke up 15 passes this year, and had 3 picks.
7 Supplemental - Larry Webster, DE, Bloomsburg - our tweener. Former basketball player who's been playing football collegiately for a couple of year. OLB? TE? DE? He's 6'6", 249, and runs a 4.67 second 40. A nice project.
7 Supplemental - Dexter McDougle, CB, Maryland - coming off an injury so he's an unkonwn, but the kid was having a monster season before the injury. May shoot up the boards a bit if he's knocked off the rust.
