This is the second part of my mock draft that includes scenarios where I was offered more picks by trading back. In the 1st round the Las Vegas Raiders offered me their #12 and #19 overall picks for my #7 overall. Later on in the 4th round the Raiders offered me their 4th round pick (118th overall) and their 5th round pick (159th overall). So this mock will show the nine players I chose based on who was left available.
Round 1(12th overall): Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
At 6-7 and 369 lbs Mekhi Becton is a massive yet highly athletic football player who possesses devastating power that simply overwhelms his opposing defender. His combination of very long arms, excellent body control, quick agile footwork and hand to eye coordination is vastly superior to any other OTs in this current draft class. Now he did have some issues controlling his weight early on in college if there is to have any concerns.
College Stats: 8 QB pressures 0 sacks during the 2019 season. Played in 36 games during three seasons from 2017 to 2019.
How would he help the team? Mekhi Beckton would be the first true franchise left tackle since Panthers Hall of Honor member Jordan Gross retired in 2013. He would allow the QB to feel comfortable on every pass and allow the RB to feel excited on every run.
Round 1(19th overall): CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma
At 6-2 and 189 lbs CeeDee Lamb is one of the most natural receivers in terms of hands, ball skills and tracking. He has the elite ability to track the football in the air and adjust. I also like that he is very sudden in and out of breaks and is capable of creating separation with fluidity and burst. Plus he can showcase a variety of techniques to beat press coverage including angles, footwork and hand usage. My only concern is that he did not face many talented CBs in the Big 12 will have to adjust to the more physical style of the NFL.
College Stats: 173 catches 3292 receiving yards 32 TD catches 19.0 yards per catch 54 punt returns 475 return yards 8.8 yards per return in 40 games played during three seasons from 2017 to 2019.
How would he help the team? Lamb is a threat at all levels of the field with the elite body control, ball skills, hands and instincts. He has the upside to develop into one of the premiere offensive weapons in the NFL. He would also be a huge threat in the return game as well.
Round 2(38th overall): Neville Gallimore, DL, Oklahoma
At 6-2 and 304 lbs Neville Gallimore is a disruptive DT in a 40 front defense. His explosive get off and violent hands allows him to attack his blocker before they can properly react. He consistently shows initial quickness, power, hand counters and a high motor. Also will provide plenty of disruption up front when looking to collapse the pocket and get to opposing QBs. He is versatile enough to play both the 1 tech and the 3 tech DT positions. He does need to improve getting off blocks quicker against run plays.
College Stats: 147 tackles 17 tackles for loss 8.5 sacks 5 forced fumbles in 46 games played during four seasons from 2016 to 2019.
How would he help the team? Gallimore would provide an immediate threat as a pass rusher up the middle of both A gaps from Day 1.
Round 3(69th overall): Leki Fotu, DL, Utah
At 6-5 and 337 lbs Leki Fotu has excellent explosiveness for a player of his size along with very good agile footwork. Excellent first step allows for quick penetration and gap control. He is the ideal nose tackle as his power allows him to absorb double team blocks and still collapse the pocket. Does a consistent job of getting off blocks and run plays down despite his size. He does need to improve on having better leverage on a regular basis.
College Stats: 82 tackles 17 tackles for loss 4 sacks 3 forced fumbles in 30 games played during four seasons from 2016 to 2019.
How would he help the team? Fotu would be that 30 front NT that will occupy blockers to keep the LBs free to make plays while also disrupting blocking schemes on run plays.
Round 4(118th overall): Jordan Fuller, S, Ohio State
At 6-2 and 205 lbs Jordan Fuller is a terrific natural athlete who has dynamic range to cover the entire field. His ability to read the eyes of the opposing QB is above average. He effectively makes plays against the run and the pass. He can play the single high (Cover 1), man to man coverage in the slot and a very effective blitzer. He needs to improve his tackling techniques and tackling angles.
College Stats: 216 tackles 5 INTs 10 pass deflections 5 tackles for loss 3 recovered fumbles in 45 games played during four seasons from 2016 to 2019.
How would he help the team? Fuller would fit the ideal mold of a traditional free safety who roams the back end of the defense. He can also match up well against TEs and RBs in the slot as well.
Round 5(152nd overall): K’Von Wallace, S, Clemson
At 5-11 and 199 lbs K’Von Wallace is a very athletic and high IQ player that can both safety spots and nickel CB. His super acceleration allows him to have great pursuit of the ball. His is able to get his hands on alot of balls. He was used all over the secondary in different positions on any given play. He can also play all four units on special teams at a high level.
College Stats: 156 tackles 5 INTs 15 pass deflections 5.5 tackles for loss 2 sacks 2 forced fumbles in 45 games played during four seasons from 2016 to 2019.
How would he help the team? Wallace would be a versatile swiss army knife type of playmaker all over the secondary.
Round 5(159th overall): Shaquille Quarterman, LB, Miami (FL)
At 6-1 and 241 lbs Shaquille Quarterman is a super athletic player with a non stop motor and a high football IQ. He played the MLB position with intensity and production. The ability to quickly diagnose plays and attack is fun to watch. He also is a highly effective when asked to blitz. He can improve on not over running plays and getting of blocks quicker.
College Stats: 356 tackles 46.5 tackles for loss 12 sacks 13 pass deflections 2 forced fumbles 5 recovered fumbles 1 INT in 52 games played during four seasons from 2016 to 2019.
How would he help the team? Quarterman would be a prime candidate to play as the starting middle linebacker.
Round 6(184th overall): Harrison Hand, CB, Temple
At 6-0 and 192 lbs Harrison Hand shows the ability to be effective as both a man to man CB and as a zone CB. He has high football awareness and is rarely out of place to make a play on the ball. His long arms and his long strides allow him to cover deep yet recover quick as well. He has very flexible hips which allows him to convert speed to power and lay some big huge hits on the ball carrier. He can improve on refine his techniques when it comes to tighter coverage.
College Stats: 114 tackles 4 INTs 16 pass deflections 5.5 tackles for loss 1 forced fumble in 31 games played during three seasons from 2017 to 2019.
How would he help the team? Hand is a versatile aggressive CB that could also move over to safety in certain packages. He also played for Coach Rhule in 2017 and 2018 at Baylor University before transferring to Temple in 2019.
Round 7(221st overall): Adrian MaGee, OG, LSU
At 6-5 and 335 lbs Adrian MaGee is a very powerful run blocker with a nasty attitude. He blocks hard until the whistle blows. He has long arms that really allows him to lock up the defender in front of him. When pass blocking he does not give ground often. He has good vision to adjust his blocks to where his ball carrier is going. Is versatile enough to play every OL position except C. He does need to improve his foot speed and his flexibility.
College Stats: Was a Top 5 graded run blocker in the SEC each year that he played.
How would he help the team? MaGee would add power run blocking and attitude intensity at the LG spot.
