Ferns’ Mock Draft 2.0

watkins

 

 

1- Drugged Llamas- WR- Sammy Watkins

The Llamas are in serious need of a receiver who can start from day one. Watkins should be that guy, stepping in as Buffalo’s main receiving target. Watkins is quick and explosive, and at 6-1 and 210lbs he offers a perfect blend of size and speed.

Previous draft position- #1

2- Beach Bum- RB- Bishop Sankey

Beach Bum continues to be haunted by Trent Richardson. The 5-9 210lb Sankey should come in and be an immediate starter in the Beach Bum backfield. Sankey is the only real option on the Titans and is expected to see a lot of action, which should lead to fantasy points.

Previous draft position- N/A

3-Unicorns and Glitter (from Mush)- WR- Brandin Cooks

U&G has been longing for a true #1 WR. Alshon Jeffery may have become that guy, but U&G will take another WR in case last year was a mirage. Cooks is small at 5-9, but offers 4.33 speed and early reports have him as a guy who can stretch the field, while also being active in the short passing game.

Previous draft position- # NA

4- Greased Up Deaf Guy- WR- Mike Evans

GUDG has options at RB, but could use a WR who can separate himself from the pack. Evans is a huge target at 6-5 230lbs. Even with the similarly sized Vincent Jackson in Tamp Bay, Evans will be a red zone threat early and often for the Bucs.

Previous draft position- #4

5-Puny Team- WR- Odell Beckham

Puny team badly needs a WR and Beckham should be his guy. Beckham is a big play threat who will line up opposite of Victor Cruz. He should be able to stretch the defense, while also being a player in the short passing game. Beckham is already projected to see 75-100 looks this season.

Previous draft position- # NA

6- Rice and Greens- WR- Kelvin Benjamin

R&G has options at RB and WR, so selecting a QB to eventually replace Roethlisberger may be an option here. Most of their Wrs are average or inconsistent so the 6-5 240 lb Benjamin should be an upgrade. Benjamin may be a project at first but is a match-up nightmare worth waiting for.

Previous draft position- # 11

7- Megatron v. Optimus Peterson – QB Blake BortlesMvOP is currently carrying 4 back-up Qbs and none of them have much long term value. Bortles should be the heir apparent for MvOP. The traditionaly talent poor Jags drafted Bortles, along with two exciting Wrs to improve their passing game, giving Bortles added value.

Previous draft position- # 9

8- Kitten Mittons- RB– Jeremy Hill

KM’s need for a RB has been well documented. So has her dislike for Rbs who split carries. However, that is the new trend in the NFL and there are no better options options on the board. Hill will split carries with Benard, but should see the goal-line touches as well.

Previous draft position- NA

9- Breaking Bradshaw- QB- Teddy Bridgewater

With Phillip Rivers and Eli Manning both being over 32 years old, adding a young promising QB to the mix will help keep BB stable moving forward. Bridgewater lost some shine on his star after a poor pro-day, but the kid can play. He could be the steal of the draft.

Previous draft position- # 3

10- Touchdown Mafia- RB- Carlos Hyde
TD Mafia lacks Rb depth and has drafted handcuffs previously. Hyde is the perfect pick to back-up Frank Gore. Hyde may work into the RB mix in San Fran as they attempt to keep Gore healthy and fresh. Either way, Hyde should have significant long term value with the 49ers.

Previous draft position- # 8

11- The Muscle Hamsters- WR Jordan Mathews

The Hamsters could use a WR to replace Josh Gordon, who’s off-field problems cloud his long term value. There has been nothing but positive reports coming out of Philly about Mathews. He has the size and speed to become the #1 WR for the Eagles.

Previous draft position- # 6

12- Rice and Greens (from U&G)- QB- Johnny Manziel

Manziel offers long term value for R&G. Manziel slid in the draft due to his lack of ideal size and his off-field activities. However, he was talented enough to be considered the pick in the draft. Johnny Football is exciting and showed solid intangible at Texas A&M.

Previous draft position- # 5
