No Bray or Hunter in the first round, but CP is there.
Russ Lande takes another stab with Mock Draft Version 3.0 to start the new year.
I have not seen any current mock draft that has Bray in first round. I doubt he comes back, but if he does, he could vault up to a number one overall pick with a good season.
Not going before Clowney if he came back, and ain't gonna put up much better numbers than this year if he does that well. We were pass happy all year , look for that to change.
If Bray plays up to his potential and a team with no QB gets number one, Bray could easily go number. Bray's problem is not numbers, at all. The reason Bray will not go first round is that TN has a losing record with him at QB, he was injured last year; meaning he only has one full season to judge him on, and he still has not shown the ability to lead.
If Bray does come back, which again i do not think he will, he mostly certainly can go #1.
From what I've heard and read, this year's QB class for the draft is much weaker than last year or next. Given that, it makes more sense for Bray to go pro now, especially given the new rookie contract structure. It's not like the prior CBA where the difference between the 1st and 2nd round is literally millions of dollars up front.
That is what is scary about Bray's status, is that it is a very weak QB draft this year. However, you can talk about how good next year is, but looking forward this time last year people were saying wow Barkley, Wilson, and Landry Jones are all coming back. You had Geno Smith and Tyler Bray, who some mocks had as the number one overall pick, also to look at as people on the rise. Plus, Logan Thomas was being touted as the next big thing and EJ Manuel was being looked at as a solid prospect. Every single one of those guys slipped.
If you look at next year, you have some interesting juniors, but Bray could very well be the top Senior returning, and if Bray proves he can win, he will shoot up the board.
CP to the Bengals will make them a scary team next year. With Green, Sanu, and Patterson they will have one of the best WR corps in the league. The Colts are my team and I love the projection of them drafting Johnathan Banks.
As a Steelers fan, the idea of CP in a Bengals uniform turns my stomach.
CP would be a good fit for the Bengal offense. And with a dual threat like that staring you in the face, opposing defenses would have a fit dealing with both him and Green
