My Final Card's Mock

1. Jonathon Cooper, OG, North Carolina:

I really hate taking a guard top 10. But what I hate more is the weakness in this draft, the QBs suck too much for a draft pick, too many boom or bust pass rushers which is the only other expensive need we have (OG and ILB + RB are cheap). Cooper is a perfect pick for our new ZBS. I would also take Warmack or Johnson. If Joeckel, Fisher, or Shariff Floyd fell I'd take them (DT isn't a need but he's too good and talented to pass up; plus DD is getting older). I don't like Jordan but I'd be okay if he fell and we took him. Don't want Ansah, he's a project and he's already almost 24. If we traded back to 11-13 I'd take Vacarro (or Mingo possibly).

2. Kiko Alonso, ILB, Oregon:

Nasty, aggressive player. Great blitzer and a dominate force versus the run. He could give us an ILB tandem that could beat SF's. My favorite ILB in the draft. We have to get an ILBer to pair with Wash and Brinkley isn't the answer.

With Wash being suspended we desperately need depth at ILB and I think Kiko can play for us for the next 10 years.

Alternate picks:

Alex Okafor-one of the best pass rushers in the draft, would love him if he falls to us and Kiko isn't there

Larry Warford-would love to get him if we don't go OG in the 1st

Kevin Minter

***************

3. Jamie Collins, OLB, Southern Miss

One of my favorite players in the draft. He would've been a perfect fit for Horton's defense but he's scheme diverse and will still be a great player for the Cards. He produced every year he was at Southern Miss. Fast and physical, he's an all around player and a good pass rusher.

Alternate picks:

Dallas Thomas-would LOVE this pick as well

Sean Porter-If Collins and Thomas are off the board I'd take Porter

Bacarri Rambo

Sio Moore

Barrett Jones-can play any position on the line, even backup LT.

4. Earl Wolff, FS/SS, North Carolina State

Produced every year at school. Good run defender. Gets FFs, INTs, and pass break ups. Nice height/weight/speed. Bell is just a stopgap but Wolff will lockdown one of the safety positions. Him and Rashad would give us two balanced safeties.

Alternate picks:

Jon Bostic-if we don't draft an ILB and he falls he has to be the pick. I'd trade to up to get him. HUGE potential

J.J. Wilcox

Trevardo Williams, OLB, Connecticut

Travis Kelce, TE, Cinncinatt

Nick Kasa

B.W. Webb

Logan Ryan

Leon Mcfadden

Tyrann Mathieu- Patrick Peterson vouches for him. As long as its not early I don't mind (because of Peterson)

Ryan Swope

Kenny Stills

Jordan Poyer

****************

5. Dion Sims, TE, Michigan State

Big with nice speed for his size. Makes his name as a blocker but can catch a few passes which would complement Housler very well.

Alternate picks:

AJ Klein, ILB, Kansas State-would love to get him if we don't draft an ILB in the first 4 rounds

Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida

Will Davis, CB, Utah State

Dwayne Gratz, CB, Connecticut

Terry Hawthorne, CB, Illinois

********************

6. Rod Sweeting, CB, Georgia Tech

Has big potential. Put up solid play the last two years. Good height and fast. He has 2nd-3rd round potential which is perfect because we need someone to lockdown that spot across from Flash Peterson. Needs to put on some weight and develop his game a little which is ok since we signed some vets in FA for the short-term

Alternate picks:

Ty Powell, OLB, Harding

Philip Lutzenkirchen, TE, Auburn

Kevin Reddick, ILB, North Carolina

***************

7. Travis Long, OLB, Washington State

Put up okay numbers his first few years and had a real nice season last year. He's being overlooked but should be a good OLB.

Alternate picks:

Demontre Hurst, CB, Oklahoma

David Bass, DE/OLB, Missouri Western State

Jake Stoneburner, TE, Ohio State

Cameron Lawrence, OLB, Mississippi
