First-Pick Ridiculous Mock Draft -- (Not serious post)

Okudah at #9 with all of those picks... unbelievable. That thing is a beauty.

I know I'm the hall monitor in this but I kind of prefer to do mocks that are semi-realistic. I just don't like the idea of getting my hopes up too high.

Eh. With how unpredictable the draft is, I don't mind seeing what's out there.

You're not wrong. I just find that FanSpeak and TDN tend to offer a little more in realism although you don't get the trading element. FS has the different big boards which offers up nice variation and you get a different feel with things.

The more I read on Mekhi Becton, the more I like what I'm reading. Has anyone watched any film on him?  If so, what are your thoughts?

This is the "I dream big" board.  Where your 7th round pick is worth 6 first round picks!

I agree, but it is fun to do a Maddenesque draft on First pick.  And to be fair, the title of the thread is super unrealistic not serious drafts.  I like to them on there with limited trading.  I feel like we will be trading this year, or at least a good chance of it, so I will always trade that first unless Chase Young is available.  But Will try to do some that are more realistic.

Yeah, if there's no Young sitting there, I always trade down.

Interesting note, just doing a First-Pick mock as the Dolphins. Offered #5 + the two 2nd round picks for #3. No dice.

I'm bored and playing around on the machine.

I traded #3 to Miami for #5 and #18 and decided not to make any other trades.

Your Picks:
Round 1 Pick 5 (MIA): Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Ohio State (A+)
Round 1 Pick 18 (MIA): Kenneth Murray, ILB/OLB, Oklahoma (B+)
Round 2 Pick 3: Ashtyn Davis, FS/SS, California (B)
Round 3 Pick 3: Robert Hunt, OT, UL-Lafayette (A)
Round 4 Pick 3: Ben Bredeson, OG, Michigan (A+)
Round 5 Pick 3: KJ Hill, WR, Ohio State (A+)
Round 5 Pick 26: Troy Pride, CB, Notre Dame (A+)
Round 6 Pick 3: Thaddeus Moss, TE, LSU (A+)
 

I addressed OL and DB but pass rush was just not there when I picked.

I'm thinking moving down to #5 and drafting Okudah is my dream scenario at his point. Pairing Okudah and Slay is just too good to pass up.

Murray and Davis are good defenders.

Addressed the OL in the middle of the draft.

KJ Hill in the 5th was good value for me and I took a chance on Randy Moss' son in the 6th rd. :P

I've heard people say they don't like Murray.  Frankly, I think he's going to be pretty good, but I think I like him more in the second than in the first.  Personally, I can think of 3 or 4 players I'd rather have there if they were available.  Obviously you like him to draft him at 18. Was there anyone else sitting there that gave you pause before taking Murray at 18?

I think Murray is a player who is a mid first to mid second round guy.

He was the best defender on my board at that point and drafting him at LB would give the Lions the option to use Kennard as more of a pure pass rusher which is where he excels and the Lions suffer. There were a couple offensive players on my board but I really want to address our defense thoroughly. I really think we need to address multiple positions and this trade back and those first two picks allowed me to improve three areas (secondary, pass rush, mid field coverage).

I did two drafts.  One I had a nice trade down with Jax and everytime I saw someone I thought I could trade back for, I went for it.  The other Chase Young fell to me.  Honestly, I liked the trade back much more.  What says you?

Trade Down:

  • 1.9 Derrick Brown DT Auburn
  • 1.20 Mekhi Becton OT Louisville
  • 2.3 Klavon Chaisson DE/OLB LSU
  • 2.13 Jk Dobbins RB OSU
  • 3.3 Damon Arnette CB OSU
  • 3.14 Lynn Bowden WR KY
  • 4.3 Kyle Dugger FS/SS Lenoir-Rhyne
  • 4.13 Hamsah Nasirildeen FS/SS FSU  (I'm thinking of using him in a similar role as Isaiah Simmons would be used, but he needs to go to the gym first)
  • 5.3 Akeem Davis-Gaither OLB Appalachain State
  • 5.26 Britain Covey WR Utah
  • 6.3 Damien Lewis OG LSU

Chase Young Falls:

  • Round 1 Pick 3: Chase Young DE/OLB, Ohio State (A+)
  • Round 2 Pick 3: Henry Ruggs WR, Alabama (A+)
  • Round 3 Pick 3: Davon Hamilton DT, Ohio State (A)
  • Round 4 Pick 3: Shane Lemieux OG, Oregon (A+)
  • Round 5 Pick 3: Leki Fotu , DT, Utah (A+)
  • Round 5 Pick 26: Michael Warren RB, Cincinnati (A+)
  • Round 6 Pick 3: Lee Morris WR, Oklahoma (A+)

maybe this isn't very fair, but I wanted to see what I would prefer to do.  even looking at the first four picks, I think I would rather have the trade down scenario. I'm thinking more and more although Young may be a beast, we could get an overall better team with a trade down for the long run.
