    It's impossible to predict who will fall and who will rise once April rolls around but this mock draft I made, reaches at least 10 spots for every prospect yet most needs are STILL addressed. With TT's brilliance, I'm excited what we can do this year in the draft. It certainly looks bright.

    1. OLB Jabaal Sheard 6'3" 264 lbs 4.76 40 time

    Physically stronger and more athletic than anyone we currently have at ROLB. May be day 1 starter. He can only help an already scary defense.

    2. CB Ras-I Dowling 6'1" 198 lbs 4.54 40 time

    Good size for Nickelback and successor to Charles Woodson. Will learn under Woodson, Williams and Shields to accelerate growth.

    3. OT Joseph Barksdale 6'5" 325 lbs 5.38 40 time

    One of the top middle round OT prospects available. Should be a solid RT in the NFL. He'll sit and learn to refine his skills.

    4. OG Stephen Schilling 6'4" 308 lbs 5.29 40 time

    Depth pick. Many point to his poor showing against top rated DE Cameron Jordan at Senior Bowl but get real a 1st round DE vs. 4th round OG. Did anyone think he'd do superb job? Won't start but rather sit and learn.

    5. WR Greg Salas 6'1" 210 lbs 4.56 40 time

    Good size to replace James Jones if he leaves or else depth pick to sit and learn until Donald Driver retires. He'll need polishing since Hawaii does implement a spread offense.

    6. DE Brandon Bair 6'6" 276 lbs 4.98 40 time

    Intriguing size. He needs to put on at least 10 lbs to be a true 3-4 DE but who knows Dom Capers might utilize him on passing downs as a pure pass rusher.

    7. K Kai Forbath

    I didn't know who else to draft so a kicker came in.

    Conclusions: Before you guys bash me for a pathetic draft, this is WORSE CASE SCENARIO DRAFT not one will have at all. I'm just pointing out if this is the worse that can happen, Imagine how scary our team will be if TT drafts really pretty much anything better than this? GO PACK GO!!!

    Worst case? Worst case is we trade up all our picks to #6 overall and TT calls in "Take Von Miller!" Our rep at the draft hastily writes down Vern Miller in his excitement and we end up with the 2nd string OG from East Oklahoma, Vernon Miller.

    As far as your list - not too shabby. We have the luxury IMHO of picking the BPA at any position. We don't have a single need except for a KR/PR specialist.

    Ugh. Really didn't like your draft. I've seen Sheard mocked late 2nd early 3rd. Dowling is going 3rd 4th most mocks. Some don't even have Blacksdale, thinking he's incredibly overrated. The rest I can't say.

    Wouldn't mind if this was starting in the 2nd round (Sheard), with a guy like JJ Watt at 1st round.

    Worst case involves not making our pick in time like the vikes.

    I wonder how they can top that one? Showing up a day late for the draft?

    Is Watt a hybrid 3-4/4-3 guy? He looks more suited for 4-3 imo, but being a UW fan, I would take him in a heartbeat.

    btw, whoever gets Watt is getting a freakin' gem. Hardest working blue-collar type guy I've seen in awhile.

    We have to forfeit all of our picks between the bears and the vikings for no reason. That should be the worst case scenario.

    Yeah, he didn't play 3-4 in college. But he's 290lbs and isn't explosive and agile enough to play 4-3DE in the pro's, at least not the weakside DE.

    The way we run our 3-4, with one-gap DEs, it would be the perfect fit for him. We ask our DEs to pass rush a lot, something he's great at doing so from the interior, and he's also very good at setting the edge and containing the run.

    Plus, he would be a taller guy than what we have, he would be better at setting the edge than most against the run. We could ask more of him.

    If Jenkins go, and it seem like a given, I would love to have Watt, Raji and Neal in the line.
