Happy Easter Raider Nation!
Decided to get into the draft spirit this morning and do a little mock for fun. I used walterfootball as a platform for who was available where. I guess its a bit unrealistic but its just for fun. let me know what you guys think.
4. Josh Allen DE Kentucky
Would love Bosa or Williams here but with them off the board we take the best edge available, not a bad consolation.
24. Traded to Buffalo for 40 and 74
After adding to the defense, selecting Montez Sweat at pick 9 and watching AJ and Marquise Brown get picked at 21 and 22 the Bills pull the trigger and trade up ahead of Indianapolis to snag a big weapon for their young QB, DK Metcalf. Mayock is happy to get back a 3rd round pick.
27. Traded to New York for 37 and 95
Trading away another first round pick?! Mayock has done his homework and knows there will be plenty of talent available later in the draft. The Giants pass on Haskins twice and add two edge rushers to their defense, but as Haskins continues to slide, they trade up for Elis replacement.
35. Greedy Williams CB LSU
Only one CB goes on the first night of the draft (Byron Murphy) Mayock has his pick at the second corner in round 2 and decides to gamble on the talent of Greedy WIlliams.
37. Jachai Polite DE Florida
Even though we take an edge rusher in the top 5, the whole building knows the leagues worse pass rush is going to need a lot more than that. Allen and Polite will go a long way to helping the teams biggest weakness.
40. Jeffery Simmons DT Mississippi St.
Why not go ahead add another piece to the DL to try and remedy that pass rush. A guy who should have went in round 1, slides due to injury. With all the picks the team has acquired they use one on a great value that may not be able to play right away.
**Raiders trade 74 and 140 to Jacksonville for 69**
69. Mack Wilson LB Alabama
After trading back twice Mayock sacrifices a pick to move up in front of a couple LBer needy team (Tampa Bay, Cincinnati) to select a guy he did not expect to be around in the 3rd.
95. Riley Ridley WR Georgia
5 pick, all defense. Mayock must really be in charge! Well Gruden is getting antsy for offense and Mayock is happy to give him another weapon, and take the best WR available at 95.
106. Benny Snell Jr. RB Memphis
Hes no Josh Jacobs, but hes a tough runner. We take a shot on Benny Snell Jr. in the 4th and hope he can produce in the league the way he did in college.
barely knew enough to get through 4 rounds, no way i could predict picks in the 7th.
