PFT Live mock draft, part four

Mock drafts are more abundant than NFL running backs.  But everyone needs one, and we have two.

There’s the official PFT mock draft, for which I take no blame (but will gladly claim credit), and the official PFT Live mock draft, which is being doled out in eight four-piece chunks.

Today, we unveiled picks 13 through 16.  If you missed it at noon ET, we have good news.  Or, if you didn’t plan to watch it, bad news.  Because here it is.

    All this talk about DTs tells me the Eagles won’t draft one in Rd 1. I’m still stuck on Keuchly, strong side now and eventually and/or good depth in middle. Trade up and use Samuels to get Barron at safety (if he is the player/leader everyone seems to think he is) then add a red zone threat. It makes too much sense for AR but how is that not a formula to put them right back in contention? (right back – haven’t been there in quite a while?!?!)

    Eagles current DTs aren’t game changers but they’re solid. They have a better rotation than many teams there and with their ends and a beefed up LB crew they won’t let up the runs and tight end yardage they have been. Add Barron and you don’t need Samuels. I was never a Josolio Hanson phinatic but you can’t ignore the fact that he has good numbers in the slot. Put him in the weight room and see what he can do then.

    If nothing else, the birds just need to get us fans (and I’m a season ticket holder) back into them… especially the way the Phils are playin’!!!

    DeCastro strikes a pose for his 1963 rookie card.

    Just out of curiosity, why are the Cowboys looking at a DT in the 1st round? They play a 3-4 and already have a good DT in Ratliff.

    Why not focus on DBs?

    You spent more time explaining why mock drafts are meaningless speculation than in the picks themselves. Great job!

    screw a DT, I want Barron in Eagles green!!!

    You’re a season ticket holder??? You mentioned two Eagles and got BOTH of their names wrong!

    It’s Asante Samuel, not Samuels. And it’s Joselio, not Josolio. Way to make us look bad.

    Poe is the biggest fraud in NFL draft history period.

    For someone with freakish stats (combine record 46 bench press reps, unreal 4.89-40 for 346 lb. man, 30 inch vertical) playing against third rate opponents in a third rate Conference USA, not to mention starting for 3 years, you would think he would’ve dominated against these scrubs who have zero chance for the NFL.

    If you look at his highlight reel, there’s like only 3 good highlights. Are you kidding me??? After thousands of plays during 3 straight years of starting, that’s the best he can show???!!!!!

    There’s a reason why he never dominated. He will be a bust for sure.

    Just out of curiosity, why are the Cowboys looking at a DT in the 1st round? They play a 3-4 and already have a good DT in Ratliff.

    Why not focus on DBs?

    Ratliff is getting worn down playing NT in this scheme. Usually 3-4 NT’s are gigantic and able to take up 2 blockers. Ratliff is small, so he relies on his quickness at the spot. He is good, but he tends to get worn down in the 2nd half of the last couple of seasons b/c of the beating his undersized body takes in the middle. Many Dallas fans have been clamoring for a real 3-4 NT, so we can kick Ratliff to DE where he is a better fit. He can provide some help to Ware in the pass rush dept and it should also prolong his career a bit.

    So in essence, taking a true NT could improve 2 spots instead of just 1. Our DE’s currently are rather pedestrian. If Poe can just anchor the middle our LB’s should be able to make more plays….Initially Poe would even be of help if he can just hold his ground against 2 defenders….If he gets his technique down with his athletic gifts he should be able to provide a push up the middle…..

    Now am I completely on board with him..NO, b/c he’s still a big risk….but if he pans out the defense gets a lot better. He has more upside than any other player in that reguard b/c he gives us a pretty good player at DE as well.

    Eagles trade 15 & Samuel to Rams for Skins ’12 1st rounder. And a 3rd rounder this year.

    Lol this is the dumbest draft ever! How could you have them taking Brockers when Kuechly is still on your board? It’s not like Demeco Ryans can play all 3 linebacker positions at the same time.

    Love it…Dallas and Eagles get underachievers and potential bust candidates.

  15. mungman69 says: Apr 20, 2012 10:34 AM

    The Eagles will trade down cause there is a lot of talent in the second through the forth round.

    Is there an echo in here?
