Okay so I'm pretty happy enjoying my first ever old fashioned that I made myself. So I took more serious trade double down scenerio, b/c mpbears68 really adamant about it.
Round 2 Pick 20 (LAR): Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn (B+)
www.nfl.com/prospects/princetega-wanogho?id=32195741-4e53-2090-9e0a-56f56bf22fa9 "Wanogho's NFL play may be inconsistent, but his talent and ability to keep rushers off his quarterback is what matters most, and it should make him a long-time starter with development. Very late-comer to the sport, but possesses excellent athletic ability and improving skill-set to handle NFL pass protection on the left side. His issues are more technical and experience-based than physical" *Big ol shot accross SS Leno. Won't be a starter this year, but more then capable backup who can take the reigns next year if Leno doesn't figure it out. Mitch wasn't the only disappointment, Leno and that OL underpreformed and that's backed up by Hoge/Jahns podcast when nfl people at the combine stated they didn't understand the OL's regression
Round 2 Pick 24 (MIA): Ashtyn Davis, FS/SS, California (A-)
www.nfl.com/prospects/ashtyn-davis?id=32194441-5616-3785-71b6-36de3d91d151 "Late-comer to the game who has rare physical gifts that can't be taught but can be capitalized on. His instincts are just average right now, but he appears to have decent recognition skills. ...The elite traits should get him drafted inside the first two days, but there are some boom/bust elements to his game right now. He should become a future starter at safety, but his size, length and speed could create interest in him as a potential cornerback conversion." Team needs some young potential at CB, but has SS potential if that doesn't work out. This was the best CB I could find in the 2nd, and honestly one of the better safety options, it's just not a good draft for db's outside the first.
www.nfl.com/prospects/denzel-mims?id=32194d49-4d62-4399-5aee-b92ce1fc40e6 "Mims is a long-striding outside target with excellent height, weight and speed and an insane catch-radius. He's a touchdown threat anytime he's near the red zone, with the focus and body control to finesse and finish catches above the rim. " To say this draft is deep at WR is an understatement.
www.nfl.com/prospects/brycen-hopkins?id=3219484f-5014-9965-c4b6-d7a521f0ac0b "Flex tight end with enough route acumen and separation quickness to open throwing windows, but modest ball skills and below-average hands can turn potential completions into drops" I watch a ton of Purdue football, and I think this is a bit harsh, guy was a top 10 TE in yards this year and was really one of the only reliable options the Boilermakers as teams took away their homerun threat Moore, it was a disfunctional mess where they ended up w/their 4th string qb; who ended up outplaying the first 3. Were their drops ya, but the entire O was a giant cluster.
Round 5 Pick 17: Jake Luton, QB, Oregon State (A-)
www.nfl.com/prospects/jake-luton?id=32194c55-5438-7063-68d9-75cbeff57a11 "Luton is an intriguing developmental quarterback with good size, adequate accuracy and an NFL arm... He values the football with few fumbles and interceptions during his career, but he's more of a "ball delivery" passer than one who works through progressions and picks the defense apart. " Not sure this guy really fits the system, but might be able to develop. He isn't going to move out of the pocket which apparently is something that Nagy wants, he's more Foles statue then Mobile Mitch. But really as a late round prospect he's imo the best option.
Round 6 Pick 17: Antoine Brooks, FS/SS, Maryland (A+)
www.nfl.com/prospects/antoine-brooks%20jr.?id=32194252-4f18-8559-2d0b-364045d28995 "He's a well-built banger with solo tackle talent near the line and should be a quality short zone defender. Brooks offers middle-round value as a split-safety capable of box duties and should offer an upgrade on special teams coverage." Late rounds ST guys that could develop into starters or at least be good rotational guys, big plus.
Round 6 Pick 21: John Simpson, OG, Clemson (B)
www.nfl.com/prospects/john-simpson?id=32195349-4d53-5559-6e58-1567c1c85840 "Teams looking to add physicality up front will covet Simpson, but keep in mind he was plenty effective with scoop blocks, pulls, second-level climbs and even screen blocking, which shows the big man can move....Tardiness coming out of his stance and issues changing direction in pass protection are concerns that may not be easily fixed and could lead to matchup-based inconsistencies. However, he plays with good technique and has the tools to become an early starter and a good NFL guard." Potential to eventually be a starter, sounds like he's capable of running that zone run blocking scheme
www.nfl.com/prospects/scoota-harris?id=32194841-5253-5185-36c9-2b29b5bf6ffa "He plays with eyes past blockers and does a nice job of playing around or through them, constricting the gap with his downhill flow...He offers very little third-down value and will need to shine on special teams to solidify a spot as a two-down backup at inside linebacker. " again ST talent and the team needs functional ILB rotation.
Round 7 Pick 19: Tipa Galeai, DE/OLB, Utah State (A)
www.nfl.com/prospects/tipa-galeai?id=32194741-4c18-4715-5346-6811b9b5e915 "It's easy to love the get-off, acceleration around the corner, spin counter and closeout burst to the quarterback, but at the end of the day, it will be tough for him to stick with a team if he can't get bigger. Galeai's lean frame can't handle NFL edge-setting duties...he's got a shot, but he may need a stash-and-grow plan on a practice squad no matter who takes him." Sounds like similar concerns that Floyd had, where he just wasn't big enough and needed to add weight, but this is in the 7th. Obviously not as athletically talented as Floyd, but maybe could develop into a rotational edge rusher.
OMFG I LOVE THAT DRAFT!!
Maybe rather go CB over SS in the 2nd but damn that's pretty close to perfect.
That safety is expected to be converted to CB, which is why I snagged him. Dont know about rd 1, but rd2 and later dbs are pretty spotty
I'm tired of doing this mocks, so here's Kevin Fishbanes/Jahns, indepth Fishbane stuff on the athletic pay site.
Fishbain’s Bears Mock Draft 2.0 2-43 Austin Jackson OT USC 2-50Jeremy Chinn S Southern Illinois 5-163 Josiah Deguara TE Cincinnati 6-196 Isaiah Coulter WR Rhode Island 6-200 Nevelle Clarke CB UCF 7-226 Austin Mack WR Ohio State 7-233 Raequan Williams DL Michigan State
Jahns' Bears Mock Draft 2.0 2-43 Ezra Cleveland OT Boise State 2-50 Trevon Diggs CB Alabama 5-163 James Morgan QB Florida International 6-196 Tanner Muse S Clemson 6-200 Stephen Sullivan TE LSU 7-226 Jon Runyan OLMichigan 7-233 Quez Watkins WR Southern Mississippi
Jahns draft looks like someone that is going bpa or doesn't want to do a mock. Not sure how you look at this roster and wait until the last pick to get a WR. I can understand what Fishbain is thinking as I've mocked them going after a DB in the and OT in the 2nd also, at least he goes WR/TE in the 5th.
Jahns QB pick is like he's just picking one to pick one:
www.nfl.com/prospects/james-morgan?id=32194d4f-5216-3437-2fdf-965084d7442b Overview It's easy to tell that the Green Bay native favors quarterbacks like Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers when you watch his tape. Unfortunately, while he has similar zip to the Packer legends, he's nowhere near as accurate and lacks any semblance of touch. Morgan is very capable of making impressive throws to all areas of the field, but his violent release and inconsistent footwork hinder functional ball placement and accuracy.His lack of pocket mobility and instincts make him too easy for defensive coordinators to assault with a variety of blitz packages. He's a tough guy with a big arm and the 2018 tape is the one to watch, but QB3 may be his ceiling.
