| Way Too Early Steekers 2017 Mock Draft|
2016 was the year to fix our secondary. We don't know just how well the secondary is, because the pass rush sucks. It looks like Chickillo is the only guy with a motor on the front line. 2017 should be the year to draft some nasty pass rushers, and cut some guys that are too slow, too old, or too nice.
Round one. Pick One
These guys have a non-stop motor. All can be real nasty.
A. Takkarist McKinley, OLB, UCLA. 6'2" 258 lbs
B. Derek Barnett, DE/OLB, Tennessee, 6'3" 265 lbs.
C. Tim Williams, OLB, Alabama. 6'4" 252 lbs.
D. Carl Lawson, OLB/DE, Auburn 6'2" 253 lbs.
Round Two. Pick One
These 4 guys are just as badass as the first round choices. Great TFL and sack stats.
A. Jordan Willis, OLB, Kansas St. 6'4" 250 lbs.
B. Carroll Phillips, OLB, Illinois, 6'3" 245 lbs.
C. Ejuan Price, OLB/DE, Pittsburgh 6'0" 255 lbs.
D. Jimmie Gilbert, OLB/DE, Colorado 6'5" 230 lbs.
A. Luke Falk, QB, Washington St., 6'4" 215 lbs.
Quarterback of the future. 73% completions! He may stay for senior season.
Round Four. Pick One
A. Taylor Moton, OT/G, Western Michigan. 6'5" 326 lbs.
Beast! One big reason Western Michigan dominated the MAC.
B. Jon Toth, Center, Kentucky. 6'5" 312 lbs.
Toth can play every position on the front line. One of the best in the SEC.
Round Five. Pick One
A. Tanzel Smart, DT/DE, Tulane. 6'1" 304 lbs
AAC First Team. 18.5 TFL! Scrappy Javon Hargrave clone.
B. Karter Schult, DE, Northern Iowa. 6'4" 271 lbs
High motor! 17 sacks. 24 TFL. MV defensive player of the year!
C. Tanoh Kpassagnon, DE, Villanova. 6'7" 290 lbs.
Four sport star! Good speed for a big man. Great project for coach Mitchell.
A. James Conner, RB, Pittsburgh. 6'2" 250 lbs.
He destroyed Clemson! I bet Steelers scouts already have him on radar.
A. Nate Holley, FS/SS, Kent State. 5'11" 208 lbs
A steal for us, if he can beat the kidnapping charges. Leads nation with 12.3 tackles per game. 17 tackles vs Penn State. 2015 MAC 1st Team. He has the vision gift!
