      Josh Norris’ new mock shows that not everyone’s board is the same. I’m not crazy about the Bucs pick…but I do think this mock is more realistic than what we have been seeing. Very different for sure.http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/cfb/46892/344/norris-mock-draft-april-14 - Article versionhttp://www.rotoworld.com/slide/cfb/344 - Slide Show version.

      From past experiences, two types of picks the team should avoid:  Defensive ends from Clemson and wide receivers from LSU.

      Im betting that this mock is the closest to reality. I don’t believe that teams are enamored with any of these QBs and believe there are 10-15 premium players that are better. Problem is, that the remaining QBs (mainly G-Rop and Carr) will not make it past Houston, Jax, Oakland, in the 2nd round.

      We do if we have other players rated higher. All the top QBs have potential but there are other players in this draft that are much closer to locks. Remember, with the reward of drafting a potential franchise QB, also comes an extreme risk. Would you have passed on Freeman years ago knowing what you know now? Of course. Well, these QBs have just as many questions as Freeman did, albeit in different areas. I don't necessarily agree with the Bucs pick in that mock, but it doesn't mean that the author is completely off-base.

      I honestly wouldn’t be mad if we took Beckham there if we don’t plan on taking a QB in the first round. Trading back would be the best scenario but who knows how likely that is to actually happen.

      I just don’t see all the bad teams bypassing QBs. You’re basically betting that every single QB will suck, which only happens every 4-5 years and might have just happened last year. If just one of the QBs turns out to be good and you pass on him, you’re stuck with Matt Cassell, Josh McCown, Sage Rosenfels, or whoever for an entire year and then have to compete with all the bad teams for the QBs next year.

      No, Freeman was a bad choice and project from the beginning and had accuracy issues all through college. These quarterbacks have already showed more than what Freeman ever did. There are way too many teams that need a QB for a QB not to go in the top 12.

      To clarify, I like the QBs falling part of the mock, not the part where we take the 3rd WR off the board with the #7 pick.  I think we could do better at another position.  While I would be pissed to pick an OL over Evans(who I see as the next special WR), I would be equally pissed to take the 3rd WR before a top player at QB or OL, or hell, even TE or CB.

      He’s an NFL prospect, but I have a really hard time seeing him as a top 10 prospect.  Maybe he blows things up in the NFL, but for now, he looks like a terrible first round return for a 4-12 team.

      Garbage mock not because no QB was drafted in the top five.  But the drafting of three WR’s in the top ten is stupid.WR's and RB's are a dime a dozen in the NFL.  At least he graded out the pass rushers correctly.

      Props to the foreshadowing of this by Dolorous Jason, but I can’t wrap my head around taking the third WR off the board with the 7th pick (in a draft that has been commonly said to be deep at WR). Obviously, I’m not as high on OBJ as some are here. Time will tell.

      +1 Outside of our pick, this draft seems spot on for me. The only other part that seems a bit unrealistic is that nobody trades up for a QB. I think if all the QBs are there outside of the top 10....some teams are gonna start trading up. Teams that are desperate for a QB tend to get impatient. The Browns for example, if they pass on a QB at #4, I would bet money they get nervous and trade up from #26. Overall though, I think this draft is a lot more realistic than people realize.

      LOLBut seriously , everyone says Sammy is TOTALLY worth a top 7 pick but OBJ isn't . Explain why ?? Name a part of Sammy's game that is sooooo superior to OBJ that it puts him in another stratosphere. Name one measurable . You can't . They are basically the same player. Same size and speed and play very similar  - explosive, fast YAC style wr's who play bigger than they are . They are both beasts .  Only slight differences is Sammy is a little more physical after the catch , but OBJ has better moves and is a badass kick returner - which Sammy is not.It's a wash. It's only a reach in people's trained mind from all these mock drafts, and because of the hype of Sammy. At the end of the day they are both going to be dynamic players in the pros.Disclaimer: I'd prefer a trade back of course .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCwKdJUVrno

      Well I'm not so sure Bridgewater is gonna slip that far, but the three safeties part isn't a stretch. Not because the top three safeties are out of this world prospects, but because after those top three the safety class falls off a cliff in talent. That makes the top three guys more valuable and I think all three could easily go on day one.

      I don't disagree with your general sentiment, but it's also possible Watkins and Evans are really good. Numerous draft people have said Watkins is better than everyone since AJ Green and Julio Jones in 2011. They're both monumentally better than Tavon Austin, Michael Floyd, Darrius Heyward-Bey, and Michael Crabtree. You can only pick from the players you have available to you and both Watkins and Evans look really good.

      Nose guard is stupid but Jones going out caused Ryan to drop 204 total yards in production...and and wait White also lost 3 games so 14 games of top WRs being out costs all of 204 lost yards in production year over year - or about 14 yards per lost game. So it wasn't all about just Jones and their OL went to hades in a hand basket because Ryan's sack rate rose 50% year over year which has to factor in there as well to some extent. No, WR isn't a big ROI spot and your example just shows how not big it is.

      They appear to be good prospects and if you use the usually everyone but the player I like sucks logic most of the board uses to justify their selection then they are good picks. If you prefer to assume there will be multiple "tier 1" candidates at our spot at least justify them against that rather than using the "we have no choice" logic.

      I prefer to assume half the players picked in the top 15 are going to end up sucking, because that's what actually happens every year. So the first goal is getting a player who doesn't suck. Then the next goal is getting a player who turns out to be really good. After that the goal is getting a really good player who can make a difference for your team. As soon as you start getting those backward, you get busts.

      this logic is crippling. Half the players picked in the top 15 dont suck as much as the teams who pick in the top 15 dont know what the fuck they’re doing. I hate it when players are criticized for not performing up the level of expectations when these loser teams get a pass. Its not Justin Blackmons fault he’s on a joke of team catching passes from a joke a of qb yet I just read an article saying the Jags should pick Watkins and give up hope on Blackmon,?,?WTF? Give it another season and he’ll be released only for a team like the Patriots or Broncos to nab him up and turn him into an all pro future hall of fame wr.

      My approach recommends not completely discarding any two potentially really good players provided 1.) a QB isn't under serious consideration and 2.) they don't play running back, guard, nose tackle or strong safety.

      Only two of those players received significant extensions from the team that drafted them (Stafford, Cushing), only one other received a good contract from another team (Monroe), and only one was good enough to get franchised (Orakpo). The rest are between mediocre and horrible.

What I'm saying is a players success or failure(regardless f where they are picked but lets go with your top 15 logic) is more so a factor of their environment, not athletic ability, or lack of

      I don’t know.  You can probably say the same thing about the bottom 15 of the first round.  Half are going to be disappointments.  In most cases, good players are going to rise to the top whether they are on bad teams or not.  Larry Fitzgerald never needed the excuse you were using for Blackmon.

      When it comes to your strategy at WR I think you can go two routes. A. You can either try to put together a great group of guys of average size and speed, but excellent hands, routes, and work ethic...like the the Packers or Saints. Then there is no focus. You spread the ball around evenly and it is hard for a defense to gameplan for any certain guy. It also makes it relatively easy to compensate if there is an injury. With this set up you usually try to add a great TE so you have that big safety valve and somewhat offset the lack of an elite freak #1 WR.B. The other philosophy is to try and have an elite #1 that everything is based around. He is a freakish mixture of size and ability and the focus of your offense. Everything revolves around him. This is the Lions and Cardinals model. Downside is it is very hard to find that type of #1 and if he gets injured you are fugged. If you can find this guy and he stays healthy, it is obviously a good thing to have. So if you are going for option B, it makes sense to take a great elite WR in the top 10. However, that guy usually is going to need to be at least 6'3" and very special. Watkins is special imo, but he measured in at 1/8" under 6'1" and although he is a great prospect, he is not your typical elite #1 guy and the odds are stacked against him to be that guy in the NFL. He fits into option A imo. Evans has the height at 6'5" but he is not special. He doesn't have the freak athleticism or talent of an AJ Green or Julio Jones or Fitzgerald or Brandon Marshall or Megatron. I don't think either guy will end up being an elite top 5 receiver in the NFL, so in my opinion it is a reach to take either guy in the top 10 whether you like option A or B.With option B, you don't have to meet any size or freakish athletic requirements. You just need great dependable receivers. You can fill your roster with the Jarvis Landrys of the world and you can do it in the middle rounds of the draft. Zero reason to take a WR top 10 with option B. Either way you need to have an excellent QB. For me, that needs to be the focus.

      A few things: football is a team game and the Jags have no business being in the NFL other than to fill quotas for other teams. Fitz had decent qb’s throwing him passes included hall of fame qb Warner. Blackmon is waay better than his numbers suggest and he still couldnt carry Fitz’s jock strap(it’s possible). Comparing the two shows you haven’t played a day of organized football in your life(which is fine as long as you’re not arguing with ppl who have.)

      If we could trade way back in the 1st and pick up another 3rd round pick and then take TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins later in the first round, a great OG like Gabe Jackson in the 2nd, and then Landry and a QB in the 3rd…..followed by several more WRs to finish out the draft, I think our offense would be much better off than simply taking a WR at #7. That’s just me though.

      Fitz only had Warner for 4.5 of his ten years.  Half his career has been with some of the worst QBs in the league.  And funny you put the jags down like that when the Bucs haven’t been much better.

      Blackmon is just one player and I didn't even say if he's a bust or not. He doesn't make or break the big picture. If you look at the rest of the 2012 draft, which ended up being pretty good and yielded better than 50% good players at the top, you still have outright bust Trent Richardson at #3, the pedestrian Morris Claiborne at #6, the pedestrian Mark Barron at #7, the pedestrian Ryan Tannehill at #8, up and down Bruce Irvin at #15, and then a lot of lousy players right after that.

      if we trade out of the #7 pick it better be for a 2nd and if we pick a TE in the first I’m going to go to the Bucs draft room that day and open up a can of whoop ass.

      if you wanna compare franchises, the Bucs are a 10 and the Jags are a -10

      As that not a big enough window?  How about over the last 20 years.  Jags had 6 playoff appearances and the Bucs 7.

      Wowwwww, this mock is garbage!  Not realistic at all

      Yeah, the May draft is a terrible idea.  I am sure that the NFL folks will be patting themselves on the back and jerking each other off for coming up with such a great idea to spread NFL news around the whole year, but I have to think most fans have had enough draft talk, and are ready to get this thing on already.  And yet we still have three frustrating weeks to nitpick the prospects.

      Teams like the Packers and Saints run those vertical spread offenses. If you dont spread the field and you have a bunch of average WR's then you are not very likely to find any success with that strategy. So teams with a more traditional offense really do need a no.1 WR.
