Homemade Mock Draft

Another mock draft brought to you by labe35, except this one is homemade. I took the comments from the mock I posted by and put them all together to make a mock that makes sense for the Eagles. So here we go...

24. Sergio Kindle DE Texas   

"Kindle is not just an outside linebacker though, he has played quite a bit at defensive end for the Longhorns; that versatility will make him fit into any NFL team. He can beef up his 255 pound frame a little bit and play on the end in a 4-3 scheme or he can be a pass rushing outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. He certainly has the size, speed and skills to do just about anything."

55. Navorro Bowman OLB Penn State   

"Bowman has great speed for a 232 pound linebacker and is equally effective rushing the passer or dropping into coverage. Bowman has obvious first round talent, but his mile long list of off-the-field incidences might scare some teams away. Through just 33 games, Bowman has tallied 215 tackles, 36 tackles for loss, 8 sacks, broken up 12 passes, intercepted 3 passes, forced 3 fumbles, and even blocked a kick on special teams. He also recovered a fumble earlier this season, which he ran back 91 yards for a touchdown. Bowman is excellent against the run, and rarely misses a tackle if he gets his hands on the ball carrier. He has solid coverage skills, and the speed to turn and run with NFL tight ends and running backs. He will need to work on not biting on play action, because his speed won't save him at the next level."

70. Myron Rolle FS/SS Florida State  

"It only took three games for Myron Rolle to become the starting rover at Florida State. He has not given up that role since, until he opted to forgo his senior season at FSU and become a Rhode Scholar instead. As a freshman, Rolle was third on the team in tackles and named to a variety of Freshman All-American teams. As a sophomore Rolle was one of the few consistent players on the FSU defense and that continued into his junior campaign.

Rolle has a lot of positives about his game. He is as smart on the field as he is in the classroom, which is pretty smart. He has great instincts and always seems to be around the ball, but his best assets are a little easier to notice. Rolle, at 6-2 and 218 pounds has great size and strength. He defends the pass extremely well and has the quickness to cover the field sideline to sideline.

The NFL already knows what Rolle can do and now the question is whether or not he can do it after being away from the game for a year. Rolle has first round talent, but he will need to have a decent NFL combine and show everybody that there is no rust."

87. Carlton Mitchell WR South Florida  

"Strengths:Great size. Very good speed. Athletic. Lots of upside. Hands and body control are there.
Weaknesses:Not a returner. Limited experience. Was not dominant, and not even necessarily his team's go-to guy. Will need to adjust to a true pro offense."
118. John Jerry OG Mississippi  "Jerry is one of the most experienced offensive lineman in college football. A four-year starter at Ole Miss, Jerry started 12 games at right guard as a freshman, started nine games at right guard as a sophomore, started 13 games at right tackle as a junior, and as a senior he started four games each at both right guard and right tackle. In 2006 and 2007 he helped BenJarvus Green-Ellis eclipse the 1,000-yard mark and in 2008 the Rebels rushing attack ranked second in the SEC. Last season, Ole Miss racked up 2,387 on the ground, including 1,169 from Dexter McCluster and 614 from Brandon Bolden.

Jerry is a massive run-blocker at 6'6'' and 340 pounds. He has been clocked as fast as 5.32 in the 40-yard dash, but his lateral movement and quickness are not ideal; not surprising, though, for a man of his size. Still, Jerry is a versatile lineman, as he showed by playing both guard and tackle for Mississippi. He will have to play guard at the next level, but Jerry will be an ideal fit for any NFL team that wants to play smash-mouth football and run right up the gut behind its interior linemen. Jerry is the brother of Peria Jerry, whom the Atlanta Falcons selected in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. "

124. Brandon Carter OG Texas Tech (in case John Jerry turns out really being too slow) 

"When looking for the biggest NFL ready guard in this class, one needs not look any further than Brandon Carter. At 6-7 and 344 pounds (and counting), Carter towers over some of the other top guards in this class like Sergio Render of Virginia Tech and Thomas Austin of Clemson.

Carter redshirted as a freshman in 2005 to gain some weight, but by the next season he was ready to contribute wherever was needed on the offensive line. That was mostly on special teams, but he saw some spot duty and even earned a start against Iowa State. By his sophomore campaign Carter was a consistent starter and was rewarded with All-Big 12 honorable mention honors. During that season, the pass happy Red Raiders only allowed 18 sacks and Carter deserves some of the credit for that success. By the 2008 campaign Carter was dominating most opposing linemen and earned a variety of all-conference and national honors. The same can be said for his senior season in 2009.

Normally somebody of Carter's size would be a tackle (and he certainly can play tackle), but he is a great guard because of his quick feet."

159. Jamar Chaney Mississippi State ILB/OLB  

"Chaney is one of the most experienced players in college football. He played in all 11 of Mississippi State's games during his freshman season of 2005 and started three. The linebacker then started 11 of 12 games as a sophomore and 12 of 13 games as a junior before breaking his leg on opening day of his senior campaign. Chaney applied for a medical redshirt and got it, thus he returned for one final season in 2009. He made the most of it, leading the Bulldogs with 90 tackles (4.5 for loss) while also notching two sacks, two interceptions, and two fumble recoveries. Chaney earned invites to both the Senior Bowl and the East-West Shrine Game.

A versatile linebacker who can play inside and outside, Chaney has good size at 6'1'' and 240 pounds. He has been clocked as fast as 4.52 in the 40-yard dash, although he generally runs a 4.60. Chaney is quick, agile, and after starting his collegiate career on the outside, he moved to middle linebacker for his last two years. While the injury history is a bit of a concern, Chaney all but put those questions to rest thanks to his bounce-back performance in 2009. He also greatly enhanced his draft stock; perhaps an eventual undrafted free agent had he failed to secure a medical redshirt, Chaney can now be expected to go off the board somewhere in rounds four and five in the 2010 NFL Draft."

190. Stephan Virgil CB Virginia Tech  

"Stephan Virgil sat behind some talented corners at Virginia Tech and still managed to make an impact as a sophomore and earn a starting job as a junior. During his junior campaign he posted 43 tackles and picked off six passes. Virgil missed a couple games early in the 2009 season, but he is still productive when he is on the field. The problem is nobody throws to him anymore and the corner on the other side of the field -- Rashad Carmichael -- is racking up the interceptions this year.

The story was reversed last year. Macho Harris was the superstar corner and that allowed Virgil to get a lot of opportunities to make plays. Harris ended up slipping down to the fifth round last year and Virgil may have a similar fate if he does not start putting up better numbers during his senior season.

However, even without great numbers on what is a very balanced Virginia Tech defense (especially in the secondary), Virgil can separate himself from other cornerbacks at the NFL combine. Virgil is not the senior leader of the defense (or even the secondary) with free safety Kam Chancellor and rover Dorian Porch on the team, so Virgil needs to have a good showing at the combine to show the NFL that he is a quality player on his own."


And that concludes my thought out mock draft. No Micah get over it
