    Kase-1 Mock 2.0

    1st- Mike Barron- Safety- 'Bama
    Alternate: Mike Adams- OT- Ohio State


    He screams "professional defensive back" from preparation, to warm-ups,
    to in-game productivity and presence. A stalwart at the position, he has
    the size and athletic ability to contribute right away in the NFL. He
    is a safety with great range and ball skills to make big plays, and also
    is a contributor in run support to use his size and instincts to be an
    active defender</p>

    Barron was the on-field quarterback for Alabama's complex and
    devastating defense. After the snap, he became an enforcer whose
    physical play was a reason Alabama's defense was No. 1 in the nation. He
    was especially responsible for preventing the big play, which he did
    well enough to be named first team All-American in 2011.


    </p>However, as a college strong safety trying to find a place in the
    pass-happy NFL, Barron might have benefitted by showing in workouts
    that he has the speed and agility to make it at the next level.

    <article id="yui_3_4_1_1_1332958930408_4953">
    <h4>Strengths</h4><h4>Barron reads routes and fills in run support
    well, and has the hands and reactions to make plays on the ball. Given
    his size and instincts, he is often around the ball and uses his size
    and natural ability to make plays. He is a sure tackler and puts himself
    in great position to make plays with sound foot technique for his size.
    Barron transitions well in coverage and can cover a variety of
    offensive players in different positions. He comes downfield with a head
    of steam in the run game and can move fluidly to run down and cover
    fast receivers in the pass.

    </h4></article>


    <article>
    <h4>Weaknesses</h4><h4>Barron has a tendency to get lazy with his
    backpedal and hesitates in transition due to his size, but this does not
    effect him often. He will launch himself at times into the ball
    carrier, which could prove to be a fault at the next level. Barron has
    displayed many pro traits throughout his career and while he may not
    step in and be an All-Pro, he has shown few weaknesses in his game while
    competing at the collegiate level.
    </h4></article>Man Coverage: Not often asked to drop down and cover the slot in this
    scheme. Is a bit stiff in the hips and has only average change of
    direction. Does show a late burst to close on the football.




    Zone Coverage: Good instincts and overall athleticism for zone
    coverage. A bit high in his backpedal as he's a high cut athlete, but
    can plant and drive downhill on the football. Reads the quarterback's
    eyes and has good feet, balance and straight-line speed, aiding him in
    being in consistently good position when in pass coverage.


    </p>

    Ball Skills: Classic ball hawk. Reads the quarterback's eyes and
    does a nice job of breaking on the throw. Good acceleration and
    straight-line speed. Very good ball skills for the position. Generally
    times his leaps well and has good hand-eye coordination to make the
    difficult grab. Good vision and natural running skills with the
    football.


    </p>

    Run Support: Reads run quickly and aggressively attacks, taking
    out blockers when he has help behind him. Unafraid of playing near the
    line of scrimmage, though he shows only average strength and technique
    to disengage. Good agility and speed to avoid blockers, showing an
    ability to make a lot of plays at or near the line of scrimmage. Prone
    to overrunning the play, however, and leaving potential cutback lanes
    for backs to exploit.


    </p>

    Tackling: Isn't as reliable an open-field tackler as you'd think,
    considering his reputation. Flies upfield in run support and can fail
    to break down properly. Doesn't possess the elite agility to dance with
    runners in the open field and always make the secure stop. Physical
    hitter who teases with textbook hit-lift-drive technique, but will also
    duck his head occasion to make the big hit and miss entirely or fail to
    wrap up securely and have the ball-carrier spin through his attempted
    tackle. Among his better traits, however, is his ability to take good
    angles when in pursuit. Understands his role as the last line of defense
    and rarely allows ball-carriers to get past him when he is in this
    position.


    </p>
    2nd- Vinny Curry- DE- Marshall
    Alternate: Whitney Mercilus- DE- Illinois



    Pass rush: Relentless and strong off the edge as a pass rusher when
    fresh. Gets under the pads of tackles to bull rush them into the
    backfield. Gives second and third effort to reach the passer. Uses his
    hands to swim past linemen. Struggles to beat cut blocks with his hands.
    Inconsistent get-off, stands straight up into his blocker and does not
    shed later in games. Plays a bit out of control, loses his balance when
    trying to shake tackles. Challenge interior linemen with quickness and
    strong hands when lined up inside.


    </p>

    Run defense: Chase defender outside, has good closing speed and
    hustle to get to ballcarriers running to or away from him. Works through
    multiple blockers to get to the ball, or at least force plays to other
    defenders. May take a false step inside on zone reads, but generally
    stays at home to keep containment.


    </p>

    Explosion: Usually comes off the snap in a hurry and very strong
    from either side of the formation. May not beat NFL tackles as a pure
    speed rusher, but will challenge their upfield shoulder. Quick enough to
    take inside lane if tackle guesses on speed rush. His initial quickness
    lets up later in games.


    </p>

    Strength: Plays with intensity and a nice anchor even when giving
    up 40-50 pounds against most blockers. Shows pop as a bull rusher.
    Stands up well against the run when lined up at five-technique, but must
    prove he has the bulk and strength to handle NFL linemen one-on-one or
    double-teams before moving inside.


    </p>

    Tackling: Possesses NFL-caliber length and strength as a tackler.
    Makes backside plays with regularity when zone schemes leave him
    unblocked. Gives great effort, following the ball to either sideline no
    matter where he is lined up. Adds himself to piles as the third or
    fourth defender. Spins off piles inside and finds the ballcarrier to
    drag him down.


    </p>

    Intangibles: Team leader, younger players look up to him.
    Positive attitude in the locker room, works well with the media. Hustle
    on the field reflects work ethic off the field. No major off-field
    incidents. Could have entered the draft in 2011 as a potential top 100
    pick, chose to return to "win a championship".
    </p>


    </p>

    3rd- Kelechi Osemele- OT- Iowa State

    Alternate: Omar Bolden- CB- Az State

    </p>

    Pass blocking: Aggressive pass blocker with NFL-caliber length and
    thick frame. Plays with a wide base and locks onto rush ends with very
    strong hands. Few college defenders can bull rush against his strong
    anchor or get around his long arms to reach the quarterback. His pass
    pro technique needs work, however, and he stands up after the snap,
    lateral quickness is inconsistent, crosses his feet, and gets off
    balance too easily, giving up the corner against fast ends. Lacks
    recovery speed to prevent secondary rush if beaten in inside lane.
    Susceptible to holding calls when reaching or being a bit
    overaggressive.


    </p>

    Run blocking: Possesses a guard build, with a little extra girth
    in the middle, and is bulldozer as a run blocker inside. Uses strong
    upper body to latch onto and control any defender getting into his path.
    Finishes blocks. Agile enough to down-black the tackle then reach a
    linebacker waiting in the box. Will even jump towards a second target if
    he sees back coming through the hole. Need to work on getting low in
    short-yardage situations. Inconsistent cut blocker, more effective when
    getting down to prevent backside pursuit in run game rather than
    bringing down rushers on quick passes.


    </p>

    Pulling/trapping: Owns short-area quickness to trap, and will
    negate targets in that role, but is most effective when staying in tight
    quarters or moving straight-ahead off the snap. Would be limited to
    hitting first target and could get in running back's way if asked to
    pull.


    </p>

    Initial Quickness: Gets his massive frame moving more quickly
    than anticipated off the snap. Good explosion from three-point stance.
    Jumps inside to wall off defenders from inside lanes and is effective
    taking out tackle's shoulder on zone-blocking plays.


    </p>

    Downfield: Lacks great foot speed to adjust to smaller defenders
    but gives good effort to get to second level or further. Attacks targets
    and attempts to sustain instead of just punching. Bends at the waist,
    overextends while holding block in space but is generally effective due
    to his size and strong hands.


    </p>

    Intangibles: Plays with legitimate nastiness, gets after it on
    every play and will through the whistle if challenged. Smart player who
    called out blitzes, has changed positions in college, and works hard to
    improve every year.



    </p>


    </p>

    4th- Derek Wolfe- DT- Cincinnati

    Alternate: LaDarius Green- TE- Louisiansa-Lafayette

    </p>

    Strengths: Has a tall, solid frame with adequate length and has done a
    nice job losing the bad weight and firming his body. Has a quick first
    step with fluid movements off the ball. A natural bender, staying low
    and using leverage to force his way into the backfield. Highly
    competitive and fierce, showing relentless effort to the pocket with a
    nonstop motor. Has very good awareness, keeping his head on a swivel
    with a good feel to quickly locate and react to the play. Tough as nails
    with a physical attitude and often attracts double-teams. An extremely
    hard worker in the weight room and doesn?t let up in practice. Versatile
    in college, lining up in several different spots, including moving to
    nose tackle over the center on third downs. Stayed durable over his
    career, starting the final 38 games of his collegiate career. Was
    productive at Cincinnati, especially as a senior when he led the
    conference in tackles for loss (21.5) and had career-highs in tackles
    (70) and sacks (9.5).


    </p>

    Negatives: Only average lower-body strength and
    struggles to anchor at the point of attack. Bit of a defensive
    end/defensive tackle ?tweener who struggles in traffic with multiple
    blockers, not always using his limbs effectively to disengage. Will
    allow his body to get too upright at times and needs to consistently
    keep his pad level down to be effective. Not a quick-twitch player and
    struggles to quickly change directions with some body stiffness. Has
    streaky hand placement and usage, abandoning his technique. Lacks a
    natural position and there will be some concerns as to where he will fit
    best at the next level.
    </p>
    4th- Chris Rainey- RB- Florida
    Alternate: Juron Criner- WR- Arizona

    An extremely versatile athlete capable of making an impact as a running
    back, receiver or special teams standout, Rainey emerged during his
    senior season to be the first Florida running back since Emmitt Smith to
    lead the Gators in both rushing yards (861) and receptions (31).
    <article>
    <h4>Strengths</h4> Rainey is quick off the snap to make a
    decision and hit the hole hard. He usually looks to get the edge and
    almost always does. He is a very effective short-area mover who can
    ignite a two-step power move to beat a defender laterally and get to the
    edge. He is the type of athlete whose explosion is obvious every time
    he sticks his toes in the ground. He is always a threat to get the edge,
    make one quick inside move, and take it the distance. He is a
    straight-line runner but is elusive and make defenders miss in the open
    field. He is a good route runner out of the backfield and out of the
    slot and he will likely get work there early in the pros.
    </article>


    <article>
    <h4>Weaknesses</h4> Rainey is undersized and it shows when he
    tries to run inside or pass protect. He almost always looks to get
    outside and will go down on contact when running in the box. He is not
    willing nor able to block linebackers and protect the quarterback and
    will get overpowered at the next level. He is a strict work-in-space
    player at the next level and will have a hard time playing as a
    traditional running back.



    Strengths: Perhaps the most explosive cutting ability and
    straight-line speed of any athlete in the 2012 draft. Can make defenders
    look silly due to his lateral agility and sudden acceleration.
    Versatile. Saw time as a running back, receiver, punt returner and kick
    returner for the Gators Looks natural catching the ball out of the
    backfield and has shown the ability to track the ball over his shoulder
    and snatch passes outside of his frame Has struggled a bit with
    durability over his career but is willing to play with pain Relishes
    his opportunities on special teams but is not just a return specialist
    Explosive burst led to his breaking the school and SEC record with six
    blocked punts.


    </p>

    Weaknesses: A bit of a luxury prospect for the next level.
    Certainly is a versatile, playmaking athlete but provides next to
    nothing as a blocker which means he'll be an obvious focus of the
    defense whenever he's on the field. Caught most of his passes on simple
    dump-offs and quick screens. Struggled tracking the ball over his
    shoulder as well as adjusting to poorly thrown passes over his career
    Has had continued issues with his shoulders dating back to high school
    which will require a close look by team doctors at the Combine.
    Character red-flag Was charged with aggravated stalking (a felony)
    after sending a threatening text message to a former girl friend in
    2010. The charges were dropped as part of a pre-trial agreement in which
    he had to complete an intervention program
    </p>


    </p>5th- Ryan Miller- OL- Colorado
    Alternate:Terell Manning- OLB- NC State

    </article>Pass blocking: Possesses tackle size and strength, along with natural
    bend. Strong punch knocks back or re-routes rushers. Tough anchor, hard
    to move against bull rushes. Owns lateral agility to help tackle if
    uncovered, hustles around the pocket if defender could get secondary
    rush. Inconsistent extending his arms initially, allows rushers to get
    into his body. Fair recovery if shed, though, moves his feet and uses
    his length to knock rushers off their path.




    Run blocking: Powerful run blocker capable of moving tackles out
    of the hole with his upper body. Stays low despite his height to get
    leverage, moves his feet to push the pile or maintain the line of
    scrimmage. Agile enough to block on the move, whether coaches move the
    pocket or using his frame and quick feet to ensure defender is cleared
    on zone plays. Adds himself to piles to push them forward. Extends his
    arms during the play to exercise his dominance. Relies on his size to
    stop his man, needs to get his hands into their jersey to prevent them
    from swimming past or ripping off.


    </p>

    Pulling/trapping: Even with tackle size, Miller has nimble enough
    feet to trap inside. Uses length and agility to take out targets in his
    direct path, but also flexibility and vision to adjust to inside
    targets in close quarters. His chest presents big target for NFL
    defenders to hit, and will create a pile in the hole if tripped up due
    to his height.


    </p>

    Initial Quickness: Quick off the snap for his size. Even if
    allowing some penetration in pass protection, moves his feet and extends
    arms to keep defender from turning towards the passer. Hooks inside
    defenders on run plays to prevent backside tackles. Effective combo
    blocker, owning strength to chip down in either direction and agility to
    reach linebackers. Needs to get his hands up more quickly into his
    man's jersey or NFL defenders will beat him initially.


    </p>

    Downfield: Effective reaching the second level and beyond as a
    run blocker. Easily directs safeties and linebackers directly in his
    path out of running lanes. Used as personal pass protector for
    quarterbacks outside the pocket and in front of screens. Lacks elite
    change of direction to grab smaller targets but gives effort, gets down
    quickly to take them out if his way.

    Re: Kase-1 Mock 2.0

    Mercilus is a top 25 talent, if he's there in the first round we take him.

    I don't like no wr pick in the first two rounds.

    I don't like no wr pick in the first two rounds.[/quote]He only had 1 good season and nfl.com says he's a 3rd rounder

    Whitney is an early entry junior who red-shirted as a freshman and
    started only one year in 2011 at Illinois. He played the weakside end at
    Illinois and would be best served there in a 4-3 defense in the NFL. He
    has third-round value but could ascend if he times well in pre-draft
    workouts and continues to show his athletic ability.


    I really dont think WR is THAT big of a need, Cruz &amp; Nicks are a great tandem and Healthy Hixon, Barden, and Jerrnigan can pick up the slack for Manningham. A guy like Juron Criner from Arizona who posted 83rec 1244yds and 11tds in 2010 and 75rec 956yds and 11tds in 2011 would be nice in the middle of the draft

    Look at game tape on Mercilus ... he was an absolute terror in 2011 and in college you only need one year to pop your draft (as long as its your lastest year).

    He'll go well before we pick in the first imo (NFL Draft Scout and CBS Sports has him listed in the Top 20).

    I like your pick on Barron (guess I did you sell on him). Impressive kid ain't he? Just hope he doesn't concuss himself out of a career (imagine him going head-to-head with Jacobs ... ouch!).

    I don't like your second pick as much. I don't think we're going high on DE this year (yeah I know the Giants love their DEs) ... I think Lawl was right when he said DT is probably our biggest defensive need (although most of that depends on Reese's future plans with Canty). And if that's truly the case, I think we end up going DT in the first if one falls to us.

    I think the Giants might very well go Sanu in the second however. While I agree that WR isn't as big of a need as others have made out, I think Sanu ends up being BPA at the end of the second and he fits what the Giants do on offense really well (very Hakeem Nicks like). However I think the Giants might be high on Juron Criner later on (again, very similar to Nicks).

    Kelechi Osemele is projected to go by the end of the second (and some have thought I was insane that he might be there at the end of the second no less). I highly doubt he's around at the end of the 3rd. If anything I think he's our 2nd round pick.

    I like your 4th round choices.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

    Game tapes on Mercilus look GREAT (just like tape on Curry) but he only had 1 good season, he has a decent amount of downside, and he doesnt see like he could step in and produce immediatley (no I didnt forget about JPP), but alot of sites are projecting him as a 3-4 OLB, which I totally disagree on

    From all of the game tape and analysis Ive read none of the big name DTs really jump out at me like we NEED to get them in the 1st asap. Yea Poe, Cox and Reyes sound nice, but Poe and Cox are probably not gonna be there and Im just not 100% sold on Reyes.

    Im a fan of local kids who are from the Tri-State and play their college ball in the area, but we could get a WR just as good as Sanu later in the draft. Dude is a straight up MEAN WR, but I dont think a 2nd round pick is worth it for a 3rd WR, maybe next season WR may warrant more attention, but this year we could get away with a guy in the middle rounds..... The more I watch him the more im a huge fan of Juron Criner

    It depends what we do in the 1st, I can def see us addressing the OT spots but im just not sure where.
