The 2013 season kicks off tomorrow night. That means I can start watching draft prospects. Use this thread to talk draft, draft prospects, college football, etc. I'll kick it off with my first mock of the season.
Rd 1. CB Loucheiz Purifoy, Florida- Emery has gone for athletes and upside over technically sound players. Purifoy fits the bill as a 6-1 CB with potentially sub 4.4 speed. He could even see some snaps on offense for the Gators this season.
Rd 2. QB David Fales, San Jose St- Fales is a pure WCO passer. He has only a decent arm by NFL standards but that is ok if Trestman sticks to his WCO. I think the Bears should look to invest and early pick in a QB to develop behind Jay over the next few seasons.
Rd 3. DE Dominique Easley, Florida- Easley is another in a long line of premium athletes. He finished the season strong but needs to show improved technique to move in to Round 2 or higher.
Rd 4. TE Jon Davis, Illinois- Jon Davis is an elite talent at the TE position. He would be an excellent compliment to Bennett and weapon as a "move" TE.
Rd 5. WR Odell Beckham Jr, LSU- A speedster to stretch the field.
Rd 6. OC Russell Bodine, UNC- Bodine played very well with Cooper next him. If he plays well without Cooper he could go higher.
Rd 7. CB Darqueze Dennard, Michigan St- A talented DB who is dropped by speed concerns.
