We have pick #43, the 11th pick of the 2nd round.

Here are the 11 highest rated players on my compilation: (#1st was the # times mocked as a 1st rnd pick out of 9 mocks)

Rnk.......Name.....................POS......#1st
9............Cook......................RB..........7
24......... McDowell................DT..........4
25..........Robinson................OT..........9
27..........Lamp.....................OG.........8
33..........K. King...................CB.........8
36..........Cunningham..........OLB.......1
38..........Wilson....................CB.........1
39..........Baker......................FS.........2
41..........T. Williams..............OLB........1
42..........Melifonwu...............SS.........4
43..........Kizer........................QB........3
==============================
other players of interest at positions of need (CB, RB, WR)

45..........Samuel...................WR........0
49..........Awuzie....................CB.........2
50..........Kamara...................RB.........0
51..........S. Jones..................CB.........0 (inj)
53..........Z. Jones..................WR........0
54..........Smith-Schuster........WR.......0
===============================

It would be great if King or Wilson were there for us. Kamara is a character concern.

Interestingly enough, unlike any year I remember, there were very few reaches out of the first round of any significance this year. Normally there three of four head scratchers each year, where someone rated at the bottom of the 2nd or lower gets picked in the first. The biggest two reaches were QB Watson (40th best) and CB T. White (37th best) very unusual, however it means there are fewer bargains left as at 43, we may just get a pick below 43 if CB's go as expected. sad.gif

Where's Al Davis or Jerry Jones when you need them?

I wonder if Trader Howie emerges today.

Mitch Trubinski at 2 wasn't a reach?

Yes.

I was talking about guys who weren't supposed to be 1st rounders who were picked in the first round.

He was a reach but an "intra round" reach!!

Mike, thanks for the lists.

So for me the big question is whether they trade up in the 2nd to ensure they get one of the two best remaining CBs.

According to PFT the Eagles better 4th round pick provides the ammunition to move up to near the top of the 2nd round.

That would be quite interesting to do if King was available. However GB is picking up there and their secondary is a mess.

This mock has King going R2#1 to GB and C Awuzie going R2#5.

They have Mixon going to the Eagles! That would be very nice for the O--assuming he works his way in to the rotation rather than into prison, but who is going to play CB!? They'd have to play Cover 2 all year.
