This is my second edit. I'm letting Rolle go and added a few more FA. I'm on the fence about JPP, but for now he stays.

In-House Free Agents:
Resign JPP, Kerry Wynn
Resign Henry Hynoski
Resign Walter Thurmond, Zack Bowman, Chandler Fenner
Resign Herz, Jwill
Resign Donnell, Fells
Extend Eli Manning

In-House cuts
Mathias Kiwi
Cullen Jenkins

Free Agent Acquisitions:
Shane Vereen/CJ Spiller - Speed at the running back position + threat in the screen game. Great COP to Jennings/Williams
Rahim Moore, S
Bruce Carter, LB
Orlando Franklin - LG

Draft:

Round One: Benadrick McKinney, LB - What! A LB in the first round? Yeah! BM(F) can eventually take over MLB. I don't think I really need to explain this pick. Carter at WLB, Kennard at SLB, McKinney at MLB. A man can dream.

Round Two: Mario Edwards, Jr., DE/DT - Even if we resign JPP, I'm a fan of beefing up the trenches. Can play inside as well giving us versatility.

Round Three: Cedric Ogbuehi, RT - He falls to round three because he tore his ACL. IMO, its a value pick. With Franklin at LG, Pugh at RG, our OL is rounded out. He gives us options.

Round Four: Gabe Wright, DT - Another player in the trench. No idea what Jay B. brings to the mix, but at minimum we need depth on the DL. Jenkins is like pushing 80, Patterson can withdraw social security in a couple years, and Kuhn is fresh but still almost 30. Depth is a must.


This would put our starting OL as:
Beatty-Franklin-Richburg-Schwartz-Pugh

For DL:
JPP, Hankins, Bromley/Kuhn/Wright/Edwards, Ayers/Moore/Wynn

For LB:
Carter at WLB, Beason/McKinney at MLB, Kennard/McClain at SLB.

That draft would be heaven, but Ogbuehi, Striker and Edwards are as good gone before the end of round 2

Ogbuehi struggled a lot at LT and I think being strictly RT his stock has fallen. There were about 3-4 drafts with Edwards in round 3. He has the size. Striker was my gamble. I figure someone will fall in love with his athleticism even though he is small. But, Prince was supposed to be gone before us. And Moore was the consensus #1 pick for a long while.

Still hurts? Come on man, law school finals are fun. Wink

I also should be applying for internships but have spent most of break doing things like this. You're not alone.

Interesting draft. Not sure I see MEjr or Ogbuehi at those picks but it's possible. I think someone falls in love with Ogbuehi's athleticism in the late 1st...but I wouldn't be shocked if he fell to the 2nd. He hasn't played well and gets nicked up a lot.

Also, keep in mind, that if Pugh to OG doesn't work...Ogbuehi can play OG.

Another OT you should look into with all of the talk about Ogbuehi about not making that far is T.J. Clemmings from PITT. I personally prefer Clemmings and I think he will ultimately be a first round pick but right now he is usually going in the second round of mock drafts.

Clemmings is a top 10 pick. Wouldn't even waste time mocking him in the 2nd.

Don't see him falling further than 15 on draft day and I think there's a strong chance he's gone in the top 7.

But yea, I love that kid. He's the guy I want the Rams to draft. Pair Donald up with his old teammate. Very Happy

It was my first semester. My contracts final was seven hours long. SEVEN. SEVEN!!! 2 hours multiple choice, hour reading period, 4 hours essays. Absolutely miserable.

I have an internship, sort of. Its a paid internship in my home town with a personal injury lawyer IF i can't find anything else.. but I'm really hoping for a clerkship.

I could see Ogbuehi going to someone like NE or Seattle, or early in the second to the Raiders, Jacksonville, etc. But I'm hoping he falls.

I looked on a few big boards and I've seen Mario Edwards pretty much in the 3rd round. I've seen him in the first in a few mocks but figured it was an anomaly. I really, really do like what I've seen from ME so far and think he would fit us well.

I haven't seen Clemmings going as a top 7 pick. I've seen Roonie Stanley going that high but not Clemmings.

Ideally, we have to address that last OL spot... I would prefer a big, mean, nasty mauler.

We need a DT more than DE, imo, but you can never have enough pass rushers.

You're the one who got me to look more into Clemmings after your posts in the NFL Draft forum. Needless to say I was very impressed. He's my favorite OT in this class right now along with La'El Collins. I would be upset if the Giants drafted Scherff, Peat, Stanley, etc. over Clemmings.

Good to hear. Then you know I'm blowing smoke...can't say for sure he'll rise that high but that's just what my gut is telling me. Laughing

That's rough. My first semester as well but my contracts final was only four hours(all essay). All my exams were pretty straight-forward.

Just waiting not so patiently for my grades.

Congrats! But I'm aiming for the same thing. Gotta start sending in applications soon.

Hard guy to get a feel for. Has athletic gifts which could push him up the board.

That's just my opinion. But I think he'll get there. Lane Johnson was in a similar position at this point in the process. And like him, Clemmings is freakishly athletic and will be playing in the Senior Bowl. I think he's going to fly up the media rankings in the post-season. Think NFL teams already have him as the #2 OT in this draft.

I feel the same way about the Rams...except we have 2-3 spots to fix.

If he declares, Ronnie Stanley is the top OT in the draft

Aaaaah, you'll be fine with the law exams, guy. Probably end up working in the Giants' front-office as their contracts specialist.

Only thing you did wrong was when you choked up in Kingsfield's class after you hadn't read the material and he called on you.

Nice mock, by the way.

I think not reading the material was the bigger issue. Wink

That's one thing I did...read the material for every class every night. As much as it pained me.

I read for contracts every day. Didn't read for Procedure or Torts. I hated Torts... Made an A- in procedure though so.. Torts hasn't posted. The wait is killing me!

Sorry, the Kingsfield business was a reference to the movie The Paper Chase, pretty good film about students at Harvard Law School. I'm sure you're doing fine, in real life. Bet you nailed your exams.

Ah. Haven't seen it. I'll check it out.

None of my grades are up. Don't even know when they'll be up. Finished 12 days ago.

I loved Torts. Had an awesome prof and Tort cases are just so interesting. Made it easier to read.
