Here are the most recent results of the #MockFive Twitter draft. I was joined by HogHunter as my assistant G.M. This was an interesting draft because it was the first time that compensation picks were included, so it was the most realistic of all of them so far. Below are the picks we made plus some thoughts from both HogHunter and myself.
2nd Round CB Johnthan Banks, Mississippi State
3rd Round OL Barrett Jones, Alabama
4th Round S Duke Williams, Nevada
5th Round RB Kenjon Barner, Oregon
5th Round NT Kwame Geathers, Georgia
6th Round WR Conner Vernon, Duke
7th Round S Rashard Hall, Clemson
-We tried to make a number of trades but they kept falling through (and teams were making some ridiculous offers).
-Value was important to us throughout this draft, while we cared about needs we didn't really want to overdraft any position.
-Barrett Jones is likely to be a controversial pick for some, but this is a former Outland and Rimington trophy winner, and a guy that represented tremendous value for us. He has a real shot of winning the RT job and can compete for just about any other position along the line.
-We envisioned a fairly significant role for every player we mocked, even some of the later round guys. None of these guys are training camp fodder to us and I don't think it would be shocking to see all 7 make the 53 man roster.
Hog Hunter also included some guys who went undrafted and who could be UDFA targets for the Skins:
P Jeff Locke
LB Jonathan Stewart, Travis Johnson
CB, Johnny Abrams
S Bradley McDougald
TE Justice Cunningham, Matt Furstenburg
WR Alec Lemon, Keenan Davis, Uzoma Nwachukwu
RB Theo Riddick, Zach Line
OT Braden Brown
DL Joe Vellano
What do you guys think?
