While we wait 3+hours for TB to surface, here's a little mock treat for you... and no small school specials.

1. Jarrad Davis, ILB, Florida-- Dude can ball. I admit I misjudged him after watching two games where he was injured. He immediately not only replaces Timmons tackles, he upgrades coverage. Going to have a hard time getting him off the field. Ever.

2. Chris Wormley, OLB, Michigan-- I think this kid can drop 25 lbs a la Chickillo and be a dynamite, Woodley-like edge player. Worst-case, he's on par with Tuitt and Heyward, two of my favorite 5 techs playing. Or just be like B2B and take Jordan Willis here, as CBS seems to think he will be. lol

3. Howard Wilson, CB, Houston-- young, a little bonkers... but just look at the tape. He plays so much better than he looks on paper, and only going to get better. Has a chip on his shoulder, which is a plus at that position.

3a. Noah Brown, WR, Ohio State-- I don't know how good he can get, but I think he's just scratching the surface. You see the route he ran as a counter to the fade overplay-- wow. He's like 20.

4. Tedric Thompson, S, Colorado-- Great instincts, plays on the ball, covers like a blanket.

5. Pita Taumeopenu, OLB, Utah-- #SpeedRushPorn The perfect situational and rotational stunt pass rusher for a team that lacks blazing speed on the edge.

6. Seth Russell, QB, Baylor-- Better than advertised arm and moxy. Suffered through some poor receivers, especially in 2016. Injuries are a question mark, but he seems close to fully recovered.

7. Adrian Colbert, CB, Miami (FL)-- Personally, I'd play him in the slot in sort of a slot CB/SS hybrid role, but I think you can line him up on the field anywhere and let him make plays. Only medicals can keep him down.

I'm really interested to see how he turns out. Kind of off topic, but I'll be down at The Ohio State coaching clinic and I'm interested to see what their WR coach has to say. I'm my high school's WR and DB coach and I'd like to see what all they do. More over, I'm very interested in learning from Kevin Wilson as I'm putting in a lot of our spread offense this year.

That's very cool. My sense watching brown is that he was mostly coasting on his physical advantages-- but the play-- the 4th TD vs Oklahoma was what sold me-- a perfectly executing, complex route. Kudos to your coaching compadre.

What kind of receivers do you have? Sounds like you must have a QB that can sling it a little.

Noah Brown should have stayed in school. He is all athlete and no route running. That being said, the 4th round is a good gamble pick for any team.

This is what I though until I watched that Oklahoma game. Watch this play and see how you feel about your statement.

Point is: just because he wasn't asked to do more than be an excellent fade route runner doesn't mean he can't run routes. The guy who made that play ^^^ can run routes.

Pay attention if you get a chance, he is very smart. He has a big ego so if you can put up with it you could learn a lot. I'll always be very thankful and complementary of what Wilson did here at Indiana, he's put this program in a position to really excel in the coming years.

Both of our outside receivers are about 6'3, long striders. Our inside guys are about 6' and super quick and shifty. Our QB has a cannon. Throws it 60 with a flick of his wrist. Rocks for brains though. We have a new kid that transferred in that might take it over.

The spread was made for rock – brained quarterbacks. It's a match up read on almost every play. Hell, you could even not tell the quarterback what the playcalls are half the time. Lol. Sounds like you have some good size at WR... hopefully you'll be able to run from 3 and 4 wide.

I don't care if you go home after those first 3 picks B2B, well done. Wormley is one of my favorite players in this class, almost wish we had a bigger need at DE.
