Afternoon boys... following Nate and PE, below is my Mock V1:
Rd 1: DT Jesse Williams (6-3 320) Alabama- Williams is a big, strong, stout, rugged and physical banger in the middle that would join the DT rotation early on. Kid is still relatively new to the game and continues to develop… he’s also proven in the SEC.
Other Options: DE/OLB Dion Jordan (6-6 250) Oregon/ OG Chance Warmack (6-2 322) Alabama / OL Barrett Jones (6-4 305) Alabama
Rd 2: S Matt Elam (5-10 210) Florida- Kid is an intense, physical defensive back in the mold of Rodney Harrison in that if it’s moving, he hits it. This kid is versatile (box/deep/slot/CB), ultra competitive and also plays ST… he’s another proven SEC player that would be able to contribute early. Kid is also a quick riser with Top 50, possibly Rd 1 upside.
Other Options: CB Jordan Poyer (5-11 192) Oregon State/ S Robert Lester (6-2 215) Alabama / DE/LB Ziggy Ansah (6-6 270) BYU
Rd 3: CB Terry Hawthorne (6-0 190) Illinois- Rangy, athletic kid that moves well, gives an excellent effort, is versatile and is not afraid to fill vs. the run. I’m sure BB/NC are familiar with him, having scouted Tavon extensively.
Other Options: S Zeke Motta (6-2 215) ND /ILB Shayne Skov (6-3 242) Stanford / DL Abry Jones (6-3 308) Georgia
Rd 7: DE Kapron Lewis-Moore (6-4 306) ND- Continuing to add depth to the front 7, Lewis-Moore is a big, battle tested DL with a lot of experience as a 34 DE. He’s also a team captain and solid leader.
Other Options: OG Blaize Foltz (6-4 310) TCU
Rd 7: WR TJ Moe (5-11 200) Missouri- The search for WW’s eventual successor continues.
Other Options: WR Chad Bumphis (5-11 200) Miss State
