Boomer Lion Mock Draft 4/26

Here's my mock.

24 DT LOUIS NIX III (NOTRE DAME): So I come up on the clock and I see Nix sitting there and I simply can't get around the fact that he's the best player available, despite the fact that we are very deep at the DT spot. We'll have to live with five defensive tackles the could easily compete for a starting position on any NFL roster. I know, I know it sucks to be us. I think this kind of depth would give Atkins the space to recover as needed - this is a short-term/long-term pick. I would be shocked if he were actually available for us at 24, though. If he were, I think he would be a fantastic choice.

55 C WESTON RICHBURG (COLORADO STATE): We obviously have a need at the center position and he seems to be a name that I hear mentioned with a lot of praise and hope. He seems like a legit prospect that could compete for a starting gig this year.

88 RB CARLOS HYDE (OHIO STATE): Projected as as second rounder, I was a little surprised to see him available with the 3rd round pick. I think this would be a great pick-up for the Bengals.

123 QB AARON MURRAY (GEORGIA): I went into this draft with the intention of drafting the best QB available in the fourth round. This strategy resulted in Aaron Murray. There you go.

164 CB WALT AIKENS (LIBERTY): The Bengals have worked him out, he's been projected as high as the third, and we need a corner. Those factors outweigh any (football or non-football) concerns I have about him coming from Liberty. The write-up from his visit on CJ sounded very appealing.

199 WR MIKE DAVIS (TEXAS): Pretty good receiver, worth a shot.

212 TE JOE DON DUNCAN (DIXIE STATE): The name and college alone make it worth drafting this guy. Plus, we need depth at TE.

239 FB J.C. COPELAND (LSU): Could be a monster and we have a huge hole here. I think this position is up for grabs.

252 DE AARON LYNCH (USF): Longshot, PS candidate. Freak athlete. Could be a move that pays dividends next year.
