New Mid-FA Mock Draft With Assumptions
I took a couple of Direckshun's assumptions including a trade-down with Buffalo and a compensatory pick at the end of the 3rd.
1. They get one compensatory pick, an extra third (Carr).
2. The Chiefs pull off a trade down from the #1 draft spot by offering a steal of a deal to the Bills. They swap 1st rounders (this puts the Chiefs at #8 overall) and the Bills deal a 2nd rounder and 4th rounder this year, and a 2nd rounder next year.
1.8: Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
Austin never missed a practice in college. He has little to no injury history, and will be an incredible playmaker in the NFL. He can return kickoffs, go out of the slot, be used on bubble screens, and even come out of the backfield. Imagine the speed we will have with both Austin and Charles, along with Avery.
2.41: Terron Armstead, OT, Arkansas-Pine Bluff
I think Armstead projects as a very good RT in the NFL. Our line needs depth and Armstead gives Reid the "bookends" he wants.
3.63: Jon Bostic, ILB, Florida
Bostic was a tackling machine for Florida last year. He brings athleticism, aggressiveness, and in an LB corps featuring Hali, Houston, and Johnson...I think we'd have the best LB's in football. That group can certainly make Wes Welker think twice while he's scampering across the middle of the field.
3.Comp: Gavin Escobar, TE, San Diego State
Not only do I think he's BPA at this point, but I also think we could use him for the next time Brokeaki breaks. Escobar's sub-par numbers at the combine drop him here, but he plays well and seems to have good game speed.
4.96: John Simon, DE/OLB, Ohio State
We need depth at this position, and his shoulder surgery drops his stock a bit. He was a productive player at OSU, and has the ability to get to the QB.
4.102: Brian Schwenke, C, California
Schwenke has played well despite being a little smaller. He's got good explosiveness and would give us some depth at C, possibly even a starter.
5.127: Jasper Collins, WR, Mount Union
Collins could be a real sleeper. He's got good speed and follows Pierre Garcon and Cecil Shorts III as Mount Union WR's to get a look at the NFL. It was noted that at the East-West Shrine Game practices, nobody looked more polished or ran better routes than Collins. His footwork was also reportedly excellent.
6.160: Micah Hyde, CB, Iowa
What would one of my mock drafts be like without a Hawkeye pick? Hyde was a pretty decent CB at Iowa and showed a penchant to make plays. This is purely a depth pick, obviously.
7.192: Sean Renfree, QB, Duke
A shoulder injury has taken him out of pre-draft activities, but it's a flyer to bring him in to compete with Stanzi for the 3rd QB spot.
