Title confusing? Let me explain
In this mock draft I'm switching up the format. I'm going to include two options per pick. A best case, and a worst case(and unfortunately likely for some of them).
Oh, and rather than post pictures of the prospect, I'm just gonna post pictures of Jake Butt. Regardless of who the pick is. Cause let's face it, Jake Butt would be the best case scenario for every round.
Best Case Scenario: Derek Barnett: If Barnett falls to us... We are blessed. #BLESSED infact Again, don't let the combine fool you. He's fast on the field, knows how to use his hands, and would instantly upgrade the pass rush for us. I love me some Forest Lamp, I love me some Mike Williams, and even Ryan Ramcyzk. But Barnett would be too good for me to pass up.
Worst Case Scenario: Cam Robinson: LISTEN UP OZZIE(Even though the fans have no merit).
Ozzie, I swear to god, if you take Cam Robinson I will say this: YOU WILL BE DEAD TO ME. Especially since I know for a fact, that if Lamp, Ramzcyk, and others are on the board, and Robinson is too, you'll probably take him because of your crimson colored glasses. Robinson would be a HORRIBLE pick if those two are on the board, and I know we like him. Not to mention, you won't take Tunsil because of drug issues, but then Robinson has the same problem but you'll make an exception for him because of freaking Alabama. Not saying that Alabama has bad prospects in this draft, in fact this is the only Bama prospect I'd dislike entirely.
But screw it. We all know you're gonna take him. He's Michael Oher 2.0. No thank you.
Look. Stickers. He'd clearly fit in here
Best Case: Rueban Foster.
"But Lost, I thought you hate Bama players", I don't. I think they can be overhyped. But overall Bama is putting out a good class this year. Foster will likely not fall here even with his recent drug test, but if he takes a Jernigan tumble, I think we should pull the trigger. This dude is super talented and he and Mosely together would make a hell of a tandem. To put it into prespective: I'd like it if we took Foster IN THE FIRST ROUND.
Worst Case: D'Onta Foreman
I actually really like Foreman as a prospect.. But any RB early when we have much more pressing needs.
Best Case Scenario: Sidney Jones- Again, might not fall here, but if he does even with his injury he'd be too good to pass up. A potential starter going forward and having Carr gives us flexibility to make us wait this long.
Worst Case: Ethan Pocic- Sami84 would be happy we took an LSU player. I'd be freaking pissed off with this pick. I think Pocic isn't a starter in this league. He's physically gifted, but he's not that good of a center. His height worries me to be totally honest and he might lose many battles on the lines because of it. Unfortuneately, I think with the whole "bigger and stronger" thing he's a realistic possibility.
Best Case Scenario: Jake Butt
Worst Case: A TE not named Jake Butt
Let's get this BS out of the freaking way. THERE IS NO HARBAUGH CONNECTION. Last season was the first time we've ever taken a player from one of Jim's schools. We didn't draft any stanford players during his tenure there, and last season was the first we took a Michigan guy.
That said, if we don't take Jake Butt. I will die of sadness. IDC if I like others TES after him. I think he's an ideal fit on the team, and he'd fit in right away.... once he got healthy
BC: Damonte Kazee
WC: Tyler Orlosky
You all know my thoughts on Kazee. But Orlosky is another pick that would be horrible. This oline class is terrible and Orlosky's tape... Sucked. There's no other way to put it. I hope we take a center earlier, but I'm having my doubts.
AHHHHH. Okay. So from this point on the BC/WC format is really hard. So I'm going back to normal
Round Five: Erik Mangunson, OT Michigan
Same exact logic as the McDermott pick last time. Just a different player. I tihnk that with some coaching Magnuson could be a good pro.
Round Six: Jaylen Brown, ILB, UCLA
Brown fills a need late in the draft with a guy who is a good coverage linebacker. He'd be nothing more than a rotaitonal guy, but a valuable one, and someone I could trust.
Anyway, my next mock will be next week, and my final mock will be after the draft. Hope y'all liked it. Or not. either way screw you if you did not.
I like Jake Butt and I cannot lie
