Tommy Lawlor’s first mock draft of the season

Or Matt Alkire’s.  Oops.  Whatever.  Same thing.

Mock draft here.

If you’re an Eagles fan, there’s a pretty good chance you already know who Tommy Lawlor is.  Ever since I started this blog, I’ve had a good chance to review the work of some of the beat reporters/bloggers of all the NFC East teams, and it’s unfortunate that there isn’t a Tommy for every team.  I think an aspiring blogger that has a clue about the game could find success if they were able to do nothing more than emulate Tommy’s detailed game reviews, which are a must-reads after every game.

Fortunately, Tommy isn’t just an Eagles guy.  He also more than knows his stuff about college prospects.  I should know.  I watched several practices with him at the Senior Bowl last week.  While I was noting things like “Hey, Vinny Curry is wearing green pants today instead of white like everyone else,” Tommy was listing bullet points on what he liked and didn’t like about Ladarius Green’s game.  Don’t know who Ladarius Green is?  Yeah, me neither.  He’s a TE for Louisiana-Lafayette, and Tommy had somehow watched him on film.  He was checking out how skinny his legs looked in person, and began to wonder aloud if he’d be pushed around as a blocker in the bigs.

Anyway, Tommy has another NFL-wide blog geared more toward the offseason, called Scouts Notebook, and he posted his first mock draft of the year today.  Definitely worth poking around his site if you’re one of my Giants/Cowboys/Redskins readers.

    I’m really starting to get on the bandwagon of not even franchising Desean and drafting Sanu with our first 2nd round pick. I was a huge fan of him whenever I watched Rutger games. The dude is the perfect skillset that we need from a WR: Big, tough, strong, versatile, takes contact like Optimus Prime, great attitude, big hands, etc. The only weakness he has is technique, getting separation, and route running, but those are things that any WRs can work on. I really want that gritty, tough, YAC WR.

    1. Drafting a guy and expecting him to be the man from Day 1 is a little tricky. I think that if they don’t tag DeSean, they can go shopping for another free agent WR instead. There are no shortage of really good ones: Wayne, Welker, V Jax, Bowe, Colston, Stevie Johnson, Lloyd, Meachem, Manningham. A couple of those guys might get tagged, but there are definitely some options there.

        I agree. But I would rather have a strong prospect like Sanu starting as opposed to an uninterested franchised Desean who doesn’t know about his future for another year. Granted I wouldn’t mind (if we did draft Sanu and let Desean walk) Meachem, since he will probably have the best proportion of cheapness and productivity.

          I really would love to keep Jackson, but if he wants Fitzgerald money then we’ll have to let him go. If thats the case I’d love to get either Sanu or Floyd

    “Hey, Vinny Curry is wearing green pants today instead of white like everyone else,”

    LOL! I can just picture you writing this down in your notebook and nodding accordingly as if it was incredibly important.

    Jimmy,

    Everything you said about Tommy is true…except that mock isn’t his but his partner’s Matt Alkire.

    More Uncle Jimmy stories please.

    1. Oh. Oops. And ok, I can do another Uncle Jimmy. Maybe tomorrow.
