Fan Speak Mock Drafts

Recommended Posts

I'm going with the Fanspeak mock offseason and the mock draft here.  Finishing up I realize how wildly unrealistic this scenario will be, but I just decided to roll with it since the options were there in the sim, and it was fun to daydream on.

Offseason:

  • Trade Andy Dalton to the Chicago Bears for their later 2nd rd pick (#50 overall, they also have #43 overall)
  • Franchise tag AJ Green
  • Cut Dre Kirkpatrick
  • Cut Cordy Glenn
  • Cut Ryan Finley
  • Re-sign Darqueze Dennard to a 4 year, $32 million contract, $16 million guaranteed
  • Re-sign Clayton Fejedelem to a 3 year, $9 million contact, $2 million guaranteed
  • Re-sign Nick Vigil to a 1 year, $1.5 million contract, $250,000 guaranteed
  • Signed free agent IOL Graham Glasgow to a 4 year, 36 million contract with $16 million guaranteed
  • Signed free agent LB Joe Schobert to a 4 year, $42 million contract with $20 million guaranteed
  • Signed free agent H-Back Ryan Hewitt to a 1 year, $3 million contract with $500,000 guaranteed.
  • Signed free agent DL Derek Wolfe to a 3 year, $30 million contract with $12 million guaranteed
  • Signed free agent QB Colt McCoy to a 1 year, $5 million contact with $1 million guaranteed
  • Extend William Jackson 4 years, $52 million with $20 million guaranteed
  • Extend Joe Mixon 4 years, $45 million with $18 million guaranteed

Draft

      1. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
      2a. Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
      2b. Isaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia
      3. Troy Pride Jr, CB, Notre Dame
      4. Malik Harrison, LB, Ohio State
      5. Jeremy Chinn, S, Southern Illinois
      6. Josiah Deguara, TE, Cinicinnati
      7. Tyler Bass, K, Georgia Southern

Depth Chart

QB: Joe Burrow, Colt McCoy, Jake Dolegala
RB: Joe Mixon, Giovanni Bernard, Trayveon Williams
HB: Ryan Hewitt
WR: AJ Green, Auden Tate, Denzel Mims
WR: Tyler Boyd, John Ross, Alex Erickson
TE: CJ Uzomah, Drew Sample, Mason Schrek
LT: Jonah Williams, Fred Johnson
LG: Graham Glasgow
C: Trey Hopkins, Billy Price
RG: John Miller, Michael Jordan
RT: Bobby Hart, Isaiah Wilson

LDE: Carlos Dunlap, Derek Wolfe
NDT: Josh Tupou, Rennell Wren
UDT: Geno Atkis, Ryan Glasgow, Andrew Brown
RDE: Sam Hubbard, Carl Lawson
WLB: Germaine Pratt, Nick Vigil
MLB: Joe Schobert, Hardy Nickerson (or UDFA LB)
SLB: Malik Harrison, Jordan Evans
LCB: William Jackson III, Troy Pride Jr, BW Webb
FS: Jessie Bates III, Brandon Wilson
SS: Shawn Williams, Jeremy Chinn, Clayton Fejedelem
RCB: Darqueze Dennard, Darius Phillips

K: Tyler Bass
P: Kevin Huber
LS: Clark Harris

 

I'd be excited as hell if we were going into the season with that roster.  We'd have the depth to ease in Mims and Wilson to take over starting roles in 2021 and provide depth now (unless they flat out win a job now), much better LB depth, Glasgow would really help the interior OL solidify, Dennard could kick into the slot when the nickel CB (likely Phillips) gets on the field and Pride can steal reps from BW Webb as the season goes along.  Harrison was just excellent value in the 4th and could back up both Schobert and Pratt and be the 3rd LB on the field on obvious run downs.  Chinn is groomed to take over for Williams in 2021 with Fejedelem being depth and a special teams ace.

Sign me up.  Except, again, I'd rather keep Billings and let Tupou go as a RFA.  I assume you're keeping Wilson as well.

Pretty solid.  Was Dre cut necessary for salary cap purposes?  

I'd also go with 5 linebackers just to get rid of Hardy. Usually only two on the field at most.  I'd go heavier in the secondary.

Didn't have to get rid of Dre, but he's 30 now, getting increasingly injured, and it clears way for Darius Phillips to get more playing time.  If I were to be a shade more unrealistic than I already was, I would have signed Byron Jones as well.

Given that the Bengals are supposedly letting the Bears and Dalton negotiate a restructure, i'm going to assume the best case scenario where we trade Dalton for their later 2nd rd pick (they have no 3rd rd pick and I think the market is bearing better than the initially expected 4th rd pick for a Dalton trade) and here is my mock from Fanspeak using Fanspeak Jake's updated rankings from yesterday.

1. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
2a. Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor (looked very hard at Ezra Cleveland there)
2b. Zack Baun, LB, Wisconsin
3. Neville Gallimore, DL, Oklahoma
4. Malik Harrison, LB, Ohio State
5. Saahdiq Charles, OL, LSU
6. AJ Green, CB, Oklahoma State
7. Tyler Bass, K, Georgia Southern

I've given up on these trying to be realistic because weird crap happens in the draft, and I disagree with so many of these big boards.  I think Charles ends up competing for the LG spot (unless we hit that in FA) while Hart and Fred Johnson battle out who is the starting RT and who is the swing tackle.  Malik Harrison in rd 4 is just too good a value to pass on and could play ILB in the 3-4 (5-2) looks along with Pratt.  That also would change if we could land Schobert in FA (I think we'd still take Baun, but not Baun and Harrison)

I'm not high on Tyler Johnson as a pro, but otherwise it looks good.  Maybe replace Brooks with Tyler Bass, but rds 1-4 are top notch.
