Default Nutty's Way-Too-Early 2018 Mock Draft

V.3 of the Nutty Mock

1) OC Billy Price. I'm assuming that Williams and McGlinchey are gone by this pick. Price becomes the pivot we haven't had since Hardwick retired.

2) TE Mark Andrews. Another all around TE that can be a weapon and can run block. Replaces Gates. Redzone target and creates mismatches against LB's in passing situations.

3) RB Rashaad Penny. Depth at RB is a must. Tough runner, kick return talent, and good receiver out of the backfield. Gives MG a breather without tipping our hand offensively. Triple threat.

4) SAM Gavin Bellamy. Sets the edge and can bring pass rush that Emmanuel can't offer. Looked pretty good in pass coverage during the Championship game. Needed depth at the position.

5) OG Maea Teuhema. Deep class of guards pushes him down the boards. Very good run blocker and even played som tackle for LSU in 2016. Good feet. Value pick. Allows us to move Lamp out to RT. OL rebuild is done while up grading the whole right side of our OL.

6) MIKE Fred Warner. All around good player with coverage skills. Very active. Very versatile. Puts the San Diego back in Chargers. Needed depth. Deep LB class pushes him down the board.

7) DT Nathan Shepard. Stout against the run but can also shoot gaps and cause disruption behind the LOS. Had 2 great days of practice at Senior Bowl before breaking his hand.

Why interior OL...? Are you moving Lamp to the outside...?

If so, who are your OG/OC candidates...?

I have not done a lot of research and that is so necessary.

Quickly, Saquon #1. Quinton Nelson #2.

Sure those OTs must be considered.

I will check out your guys.

TY.

Also, my strategy is still built around clinging to the idea that say Saquon/Nelson would put us over the top with Rivers. Impact over PON.

Definitely like Saquon and Nelson. Went back and checked out Nelson to look at his quickness/mobility. Doesn't look athletic but was impressed with his ability to pull and get to 2nd level... impressive.

While watching him against BC, I noticed a DT that was impressive and haven't seen him on many lists... Ray Smith #96. He played his prep ball at Cathedral Catholic in SD.

How.can you not be drafting a qb in the first?1? Clearly you're severely detached from CMB reality.

Had the CMB followed my lead the last 2 years, we'd be running the ball like Tennessee and Jacksonville are right now...

But noooooo... we must get shiny, pretty things first and foremost.

Gordon would look a lot shinier if he had a better OL. Plenty of good RB's can be found in later rounds.
Williams hasn't even played yet... and good WR's can be had in later rounds.
Hunter Henry has spent most of his time pass blocking because we have poor blocking OT's.

Me thinks you for got to use green text...
