3rd/4th round results from MtD's Live Mock

Last Saturday in the first two rounds I traded up to #26 for Charles Brown and grabbed great value on edge rusher Ricky Sapp in the 2nd. Today the MtD Live Mock held it's 3rd and 4th round. Without a 3rd rounder due to the Brown trade (#31 and #95 given in exchange for #26 and #152) it was a long wait, but at #126 the pick was Rennie Curran, OLB from Georgia.

Curran was a massively productive defender at Georgia racking up 298 tackles with 24 for a loss and 6.5 sacks in 3 years. Curran is undersized, but came to the combine at a solid, but still smaller than average, 5'11" 235lbs. Curran is a good athlete that gives fantastic effort, tackles well despite his size and diagnoses plays very quickly. The negatives to his game are that his lack of bulk makes it tough for him to fight off blocks and that despite good athleticism and cover skills, he didn't break up many passes, or intercept any.

In the 4th round he's a great pick to develop as a WILL LB, or even as a MLB of the future (he weighed in at the combine at exactly Gary Brackett's height/weight).

Next Saturday the draft will be finished (time pending) or at least the 5th and 6th rounds (in which I have a total of 3 picks) will be done.

Other notes.

  • Tim Tebow was taken in the 3rd round by the Jaguars.
  • Geno Atkins, who the Colts visited with at the combine, went to the Texans in the 3rd round
  • Mid round favorites of mine, Kyle Calloway (OT, Iowa) and Javier Arenas (CB/RS, Alabama) went to the Browns in the 3rd and 4th rounds respectively
  • Other favorites with their landing places  DE Jason Worlids (NO-#95), CB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah (SF-#110), DE Austen Lane  (STL-#114), G Mitch Petrus (MIN-#125).
