    Hello gents! Since the draft is around the corner thought I'd post my last mock to get these ideas out of my head finally and upon looking at my old pre FA period mock a few minutes ago, I can't believe the night and day difference in this team!!!! Damn it's been a ride!!! lol

    Well the rides not over, time to top our roster off with TALENT and create some competition on our roster and let the cream rise to the top. THE KEY IS COMPETITION BREEDS WINNING AND SUCCESS. Good theme right? :) I really like my 4th and 6th round hauls. Watch the vids if you have a few extra minutes. Promise you it'll be worth it.


    So with Suh, Brockers, and AD, and our secondary locked we need guys who can seal the edge to lock the fort down. Also a guy in the LB core who is a specialist pass rushing/run stopper specialist and a mixture guy.

    @jrry32 You had me fall in love with Shaquim Griffith but I really do think he'll be gone before our pick in the third in the teens somewhere. But I might just draft the other guy you had me fall in love with! ;) His value and talent is amazing! @Riverumbbq and I guarantee I won't steal your thunder this time! lol

    No trades and we milk BPA with a mixture of need sort of. Plenty of perfect projection talent here.

    2018 Draft

    Round 3 pick #87-

    Jamarco Jones OT Ohio St. Sr 7 6-5 310

    Although Jones was a four-star recruit and top 100 prospect nationally, he was coming off a shoulder injury that cost him half of his senior year and needed to mature physically and mentally before knowing what it took to be a great player. For two years, he learned behind Taylor Decker, an eventual first-round pick for Detroit. Jones played in 10 games as a true freshman for the national champions, and then in all 13 games as the team's sixth lineman the following year. Once Decker departed, Jones proved he was ready to go, taking advantage of his length and quick feet to garner second-team All-Big Ten honors as the starting left tackle for every game. He garnered first-team all-conference honors as a senior, starting all 14 games at left tackle for the Big Ten Champion Buckeyes.

    Everyone of us affirms that we need a OT project to take over for Big Whit. Here he is. Ofc he is 3rd round status but very good value. The other Tackles worth a hoot that we visited with have been drafted by now. Great Value in Jamarco.

    Round 4- "The Money Round"

    #111 Jeff Holland DE/OLB Auburn Jr 6-2 249 lbs
    Holland became a fan favorite in The Plains in 2017 for his "Sensei Mud" celebration after a big play. He had quite a few big plays in his junior season, taking over Carl Lawson's spot and helping the Tigers win the SEC West. Holland was a 2017 first-team All-SEC honoree with 45 tackles, 13 for losses, 10 sacks, and four forced fumbles. He backed up Lawson in 2016, playing in 12 games with 13 stops, three for loss, and two sacks. As a true freshman, he played in 13 games as a reserve at the Sam linebacker position (13 tackles, 2.5 for loss, one sack). Holland played high school football in Jacksonville, earning all-state honors as a senior and was named the number one prospect from Florida that year.

    Yes ol @jrry32 got me addicted to this dude. He's absolutely a perfect match between ability and draft position that creates amazing value! From here on out the diamonds in the rough come out!!


    #135 Troy '9 Fingers' Fumugali TE Wisconsin R-Sr. 6-6 248 lbs
    Fumagalli is tough as nails and not afraid of contact. You’ll struggle to find someone who will leave it all on the field like Fumagalli does, lowering his shoulder and throwing his upper body into defenders. He’s a great blocker who needs very little polishing in this area of his game.

    He doesn’t have blazing speed, but he knows what to do after the catch and can get an offense extra gritty yardage by using his size and nimble footwork to avoid tackles. The senior has big hands that web balls out of the air; his catch against Western Michigan last year was impressive. Fumagalli has the ability to contort his body and make spectacular catches off inaccurate throws.

    Fumagalli's name (pronounced foo-muh-GAH-lee) is as fun to say as his game is to watch. His agility belies his size and strength, and his hands are among the best in the country -- despite the fact he is missing the index finger on his left hand because of a birth defect. Having nine fingers didn't make any difference in his second-team All-Big Ten junior campaign, where he caught 47 passes for 580 yards and two scores. Fumagalli was the Cotton Bowl Offensive MVP that year, as well, after catching six throws for 83 yards and a touchdown in the victory over Western Michigan where opposing head coach P.J. Fleck called the young tight end "incredible." The Aurora, Illinois native actually walked on at Wisconsin as a three-star recruit for the 2013 season, when he redshirted. Fumagalli played in all 14 games, starting two, as a freshman (14 receptions, 187 yards). He started four times in 11 games played in 2015, upping his totals to 28 receptions, 313 yards, and his first touchdown. Troy's father, Doug, played football at Holy Cross while two brothers played at the University of Dayton.

    Guys is practically already good to go with his blocking skills as per many draft analysis I've read, he doesn't have great top end speed but he knows how to get open, and is reliable in the red zone, Goff would love him!

    Also, I refuse to believe that McVay is totally satisfied with our TE's in the 12 personal we have. This pick actually mixes it up with a red zone target that can actually block so it makes us a lot more flexible and less predictable. Or if we run better at sealing the edge while taking and actually play action pass to him.

    #136 Duke Ejiohar DE/OLB WF R-Sr. 6-3 264 lbs
    Ejiofor's parents emigrated from Nigeria years ago, and you can tell by Duke and his siblings' names (Prince, Kingsley) that they come from royalty in that country. As fitting as his first name is, his last name is even more apt for his NFL future, as it is pronounced EDGE-eh-for. His edge rushing prowess was on full display in 2016, when he showed off a growing frame, closing speed, and a spin move to garner third-team All-ACC from league coaches and media with 50 tackles, 17 for loss, 10.5 sacks, an interception, three pass break-ups and two forced fumbles. He showed glimpses of that talent as a sophomore despite missing the first five games of the year with concussion symptoms. Ejiofor played in seven games that year, leading the team with 4.5 sacks among his 28 stops, 7.5 for loss. As a redshirt freshman, he played in 10 contests (missing the final two games with his first concussion), making 12 tackles and two sacks.

    Long-limbed. Frequently uses swipe/swim to keep offensive linemen away from his frame. before they get into his body. More of fluid athlete than twichy one. Not great deal of bend or dip around the edge, and he has tendency to slow down at pass-rushing apex. Awareness and hand use work wonders against the run. With some coaching, he can be a quality, well-rounded player.

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzlNCmlpU_Q


    Seriously if you have a few watch his videos. Guy seems like he could compete and start with our current starters. Just like the Eagles we always have a fresh stable of pass rushers and with Ejiohar drafted with Holland we have talented book ends for at least 4 years together. He looks like a men among boys even against better competition.

    Imagine him and Holland teeing off on the edge with the constant pressure of Suh, AD, and Brockers up the middle! The thought gives me a semi! :D


    Again creating competition breeds success with the Duke of Earl, Holland, Longacre, and Ebuhkam.

    #176 Tony Adams C/G N.C. State Sr. 6-2 322 lbs.
    NFL scouts always appreciate an offensive lineman prospect with wrestling experience, as that sport teaches participants how to use their hands and feet in concert. Adams' father was the head wrestling coach at Boston College for over three decades, and it's clear that knowledge funneled down to his son. Adams was rated as a top-10 center prospect coming out of Charlotte, and his short, thick build portends a home there in the NFL. He played some in the pivot as a true freshman, but found a home as a starter at right guard nine times that year. His willingness to graduate a semester early undoubtedly helped him win the team’s Freshman of the Year award. Adams started every game at right guard again in 2015 and then earned second-team All-ACC honors for his play there in 2016. League coaches repeated that honor for Adams after he started all 13 games in 2017. His work in the community has earned him Wuerffel Trophy consideration during his career.


    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k28qszws3PU


    I"ve noticed over the years the Rams have made a habit of drafting guys that they meet with twice. Adams is one of two guys that we meet with twice this off season and I can definitely seeing us taking depth at C/G position especially with contracts coming up the next few years. Unlike Boudreu I have confidence our current O-Line coach can develop talent after a year or two and Adams is without doubt pretty damn good clay to mold. Competition once again!

    #183 Matthew Thomas ILB FSU r-Sr. 6'3 232 lbs.
    Thomas' collegiate journey has not been easy, even though he was a top 15 overall recruit nationally. He was part of Florida State's national championship squad in 2013 but missed most of that freshman year after undergoing shoulder surgery (four tackles, two for loss in four games). Thomas was then suspended for the first six games of the 2014 campaign for violating team rules; he eventually got on the field in eight games, starting three (26 tackles, 2.5 for loss). His mother passed away in January 2015 from lung disease, and that, understandably, affected his school work; he was ruled academically ineligible for the 2015 season. But things turned around when Thomas returned to the field as a redshirt junior in 2016. He started 12 of 13 games played and led the team with 77 tackles, playing fast and strong with the length to wrap up ballcarriers at will. He had 11 tackles for loss, 3.5 of which came in FSU's Orange Bowl win over Michigan (Thomas had 11 total stops in the contest). Thomas led the Seminoles in tackles in 2017 with 85, 10 for loss, two sacks, an interception, two pass break-ups, and a blocked kick in 12 starts (he did not play in the Independence Bowl).

    View: https://youtu.be/Y_4JiD5-yXU


    Thomas has immense talent and is an amazing pass rushing specialist who can get after the QB and create turnovers and havoc. Also he will be a legit ST weapon while putting on some weight and developing his skills.

    #194 Jack Cichy ILB Wisconsin r-Sr. 6-2 238 lbs.
    Cichy (SITCH-ee) had a breakout party at the Badgers' 2015 Holiday Bowl victory over USC, winning Defensive MVP honors single-handedly shutting down the Trojans' offense with nine tackles and three sacks in the second half after sitting out the first half due to a targeting call in their previous game. That performance capped off a season where he started four of 13 games played, making 60 tackles, eight for loss, and five sacks. He played well (seven starts, 60 tackles, seven for loss, 1.5 sacks) with high expectations upon him, attacking running lanes and getting through trash inside, before missing the final half of the season with a torn pectoral muscle. Unfortunately, Cichy missed the entire 2017 season with a knee injury. He decided to go to the NFL instead of applying for a sixth year of eligibility. The son of former Notre Dame and Canadian Football League player Steve Cichy actually walked on to UW, earning a scholarship after redshirting the 2014 season due to the team's depth at the position. Cichy played four games as a true freshman, making one tackle. His sister, Tessa, played basketball for Wisconsin.

    (sorry for a cowboy fan breakdown but it's accurate!)

    Seriously watch this guy play. Great videos, he has great instincts for being a 6th round pick. Guy can fly around our DL and create a huge issue for opposing offenses.He's a winner and used to winning, in games I've seen I've seen him single handedly take control and wreck the opposing offense game plan. Great freaking competition between Cichy, Thomas, and Littleton.

    WARNING HOMER PICK AHEAD!!
    [​IMG]

    #195 Jaleel Scott NMSU (yeahhhhh!!!) r-Sr. 6-5 218 lbs. 40- 4.54
    Scott was recruited by Maryland and Kentucky out of Rock Hill High School in South Carolina, but he was a non-qualifier academically. So he enrolled at Ellsworth Community College for three years, redshirting in 2013 and finishing his career there as an all-conference performer in 2015 (45 receptions, 668 yards, nine touchdowns). Scott joined NMSU in 2016, leading the team with five touchdown catches (23 receptions, 283 yards). Scouts got to see his full game in 2017, as did Sun Belt coaches, who voted him first-team all-conference because he accumulated 1,079 yards and nine scores on 76 receptions. His one-handed touchdown catch against Arizona State was one of the best plays of the season, showing scouts how he can combine his athleticism and strong hands.

    Ok please tell me if I'm being a homer here. I've seen this guy for my alma-matter for the last 2 years. Guy is legit asf! Granted he's not playing against top tier CB's every week but he has some skills I feel he can at least compete with Michael Thomas for a roster spot at the least. Guy is tall but has some freaking sure strong hands. Very good high pointing a ball but I can say he needs to perfect his feet placement from watching him. He knows how to fight for the ball.

    Wow backwards is still Wow! Jamarco Jones watched plenty of him and would sign on for the pick. I believe he could fill in right away and learning under Whitworth would be a great asset moving forward. There are some common themes in these mocks and I have grown to love Holland, Adams & Cichy, it also provides the Los Angeles Rams with needs and again I embrace how this mock played out.

    As to Jaleel Scott again, not sure why the Rams would draft a WR, if the plan to keep who they have now. They could trade one of them, but the Rams kept 7 last season and barring injury, might have to keep the same number again. Plus I would have some concern on how Scott would pick up the scheme, with that pick I might go RB, but understand you should always take BPA.

    Great job, Corbin. My only question is does Jamarco Jones have the talent and skill set to play LOT in NFL or is he in danger of being moved to the right side because that is his best position in the league?
    Said another way, if he is a definite LOT prospect count me in!!!

    Nice work! Might be a little heavy on the LB pull but it's hard to say how they feel about the class there. It's certain they've had visits/workouts with a lot of them. Oh and I've made my feelings clear :p I'm not for drafting a TE.

    Enjoyed watching both of the highlights. Really like the length and play making ability. A couple of years ago I would jump on these two. Now, I'm not sure if these are overkill. Higbee could have a breakout year. Not sure Scott would see much action.

    Nice draft with good mix otherwise.

    Would feel great about having these two on board. I want as much pressure as possible. Great rotation all day and night long.

    Sorry, Corbin Dallas, but I am not a fan of Jones.. I think round 3 is too high. Holland won't even reach round three. I have seen some late first round projection for him. His production, in one year was too good to go unnoticed.

    I like Cichy if he is still there. Ejiofor also, but again, if he is still there. I could see taking a receiver if Snead likes one better than Thomas and Reynolds. Particularly, they need a backup that is a burner, in case Cooks gets injured.

    Lol. I saw the thread title and thought, why is Corbin doing a mock for the Dallas Cowboys? And why are so many people commenting?

    I like him a lot but only in the third or 4th rounds. TBH I think he is a perfect project LT or RT. He is like a QB you let sit for a bit and learn the NFL and system. I've read some people do see him potentially becoming a LT if he's given a chance to fill out a bit and work on his technique. More than likely he'll be a RT honestly which is okay. In a year or two one (whit) and maybe two (haven) are going to be gone potentially. It's time now to start grooming someone. Havenstein is going to command somewhere in the neighborhood of 8-14 million. Might as well groom a younger, capable, and cheaper starter.
    I'm thinking Jones will project in the third somewhere and most boards correspond to this. I generally go with the average of boards of where they place someone at to base my mocks off of.

    It's okay you don't like Jones, we are all individuals and like our on tastes. For example, you like a college team with ugly uniforms and I like a college team with secsy, historic, iconic uniforms. it's just preferrences! :D lol

    Honestly Den at the depth of any championship team is competition to stay, with some of our WR's like Thomas I see a guy like Scott maybe replacing him by athletic ability and bringing more to the table once they hone his playbook and football knowledge. You can never have enough big body talented WR's even if we got one to put on the practice sqaud potentially in UDFA mode. Injuries unfortunately happen.

    You like at any SB champ or anything that is overly successful like the US military for instance and they don't settle anything as "overkill". I want to have our current WR's challenged, especially the mid to last guys on the depth chart. Remember Ricky Proehl? Depth baby!

    Thank you sir! Appreciate your compliment! :)
    Holland for sure grew on me, Cichy as well. I purposely try not to look at other mocks to move my views on players, but admittingly once seeing a few of them and researching the players I can see why some people chose them. I have a feeling we will have 2-3 diamonds this draft late.
    Dude McVay loves his TE's and he's still looking for another one!
    EXXXXAAAACtly!! lol You can never have enough overkill on front 7 pressure. Rotate them like the Eagles last year or the Giants killing the Pats those two years.

    Also you can't see McVay taking a TE? I can for sure! He obviously isn't completely satisfied with our TE room with him going after Tyler Eiffert and trading for that 3rd stringer from the Redskins last year. I love Fumangali because he is a Pro ready blocker and can make tough contested catches. That's a perfect balance with our offensive identity with Higbee and our other TE having another year under their belts. They are pretty crap at blocking if you've noticed.
    Yes love Cichy and Ejiofor as well! They would be great competition for a starting role! lol

    In your opinion what do you think of Thomas? I'm split on him tbh. Reynolds has ability the few times we've been given a glimpse at him but Thomas not so much.

    He loves the TE's on the roster he's told us that. But he's told you personally he's looking for another one? Because according to our top 30 visits we've worked out everything but QB, TE, P and K.

    Well when we are sleeping in our bunk beds and we tell each other goodnight, " Goodnight Jenny,"
    " Goodnight Billy"
    " Goodnight Corbin"
    " Goodnight Sean"
    " Goodnight everyone.."
    " Goodnight"
    Well Sean said, " Corbin your still up?"
    And I responded in a tired tone "No Sean, I'm asleep"
    " Well Corbin I was thinking" Sean said, " Since I was trying to pick up Tyler Eiffert in free agency picked up and traded for Derrick Carrier last year even though I have Higbee and Everett... .. I.....I don't think I'm happy with them."
    Corbin mad and aggravated now " Sean go to bed and don't be farting in your sleep tonight"
    Sean exacerbated exhales " Ok just some thoughts off the top of my head, goodnight"
    "Goodnight"

    And that's how it really came to be. I think this is located as well in the Chronicler's 'Articles of the Saga and Ballad of Sir Corbin Dallas', The Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor Marcus Aurelius, father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife, and I will have my vengeance in this life or the next.

    Got in my car this morning and the first thing on the local Phila sports talk show the host (The Cous) was talking your boy up I assume for the Eagles. He was reading scouting reports about size, hands and speed etc... Brian Baldinger who is on a lot countered with lack of oppositions CB skills. It was cool knowing who they were talking about. One quote was that Scott could be the best WR in the draft. You never know the Rams could go for one o0f the big guys you like.

    Wow thanks or posting! haha Interesting to here others thoughts and opinions of him. He has a damn shot at being something!! Granted some of those CB's were small and their technique was pretty bad but Scott high points very well and he's not completely polished but he's damn good in his route tree and his break in and out very good as well. Very technical route runner with good hands! I'd love for him to be our project tbh! Working against our secondary would be really good for him to flourish in year 2. Maybe a couple of nice moments this year.
