Mock Draft: Darren Page’s 3-rounder

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014


Darren Page @DarrenPage15

Here is a glance into my admittedly blurry (but clearing by day!) crystal ball.  Disclaimer: the written explanations are not my sole rationale for why these picks could happen.

First Round

1. Houston Texans: Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina – The Watt/Clowney tandem is a terrifying proposition for the rest of the NFL.

2. St. Louis Rams: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn – Assuming Jake Long gets back into the lineup, the Rams can stick Robinson on the right side and have a formidable offensive line.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville – Are the rumors of Teddy Bridgewater falling for real?  I’m not so sure.

4. Cleveland Browns: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M – Cleveland has reinforced their wide receiver corps through free agency, but lining Evans up opposite Josh Gordon will put pressure on coverage schemes.

5. Oakland Raiders: Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson – If you go to war with Matt Schaub, you better have a sharp sword for him. (more…)

Mock Draft IV: Delirium Trigger Edition

Friday, March 28th, 2014

This mock draft is best enjoyed listening to Coheed and Cambria


Jeff Risdon, DLD Editor

It’s Friday, March 28th. Most of the significant pro days are done, and private workouts are in full swing. I’ve got a full pot of coffee, a Spotify playlist devoted exclusively to Coheed & Cambria, and about six hours until my kids are done with school…

It’s go time. Man your battle stations!

This one goes four full rounds, including the recently awarded compensatory picks. Limited commentary, and some of the comments will not make a lot of sense to those who are not Children of the Fence.

I did sprinkle in a handful of trades. They are marked with an asterisk (*). (more…)

Mock Draft III: The Fall of the Quarterbacks

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Jeff Risdon

It’s still before free agency and most pro days, so things are still bound to change quite a bit.

This edition features just two QBs in the top 20, a riff on what happened a year ago when the quarterbacks all fell much further than anticipated. No trades in this version; wait until the next one. The comments here are brief as well; if you have a specific question about a pick let me know on Twitter @JeffRisdon

As always, these picks represent what decision I think the teams could make in the given situation. It does not necessarily reflect the decision I would make in the same situation.

Round 1
1. Houston Texans: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida–They hired a QB guru as the head coach for a reason, and Bortles offers tantalizing potential

First Round

1. Houston Texans: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville – The Texans can be right back in the playoffs with a solution at quarterback.  Bridgewater is the best out there, despite rumors to the contrary.

*TRADE* St. Louis trades #2 to Cleveland for #4, #35, and 4th round pick (more…)

Now that the Super Bowl is over, draft season is in full swing. Here’s a 3-round mock draft to help kick it off.


2014 Mock Draft: Jeff Risdon’s v2.0

You can find the first edition here.

There are tons of changes, as you would expect for seven weeks of college football. The draft order here is my conjecture as to the standings at the end of the season. I did sort it out for playoff seeding as well, but not anything beyond what I believe the initial seeding will look like.

I omitted any underclassmen who have indicated they are returning to school. While I don’t necessarily believe them, I will respect their word at this point. That means no Cedric Ogbuehi, Kasen Williams or Jace Amaro, all of whom would have appeared.

Two rounds this time around, and the second round order is the same as the first. I know that’s not always the case but…it’s October. The draft is still more than six months away, be patient. (more…)
