Mock Draft - Starter with each pick!

Tis the season to do mock drafts, so I tried one with a twist. Grigs has said he's going into the draft this year looking for a starter with each pick. Well considering we have 4 picks outside the top 200, that will be a tough task. But below is a mock that may be able to accomplish this goal.

I used the consensus rankings from all the top draft sites, so nobody is a huge steal:

Round Overall Pick Name Position Notes
1 1 Andrew Luck QB Omaha will explain why this is a good pick
2 34 Coby Fleener TE Sub 4.5 speed at 6'6" and 250 lbs - aka Gronk 2.0 - plus 27 reps on bench.. will start day 1
3 64 Josh Robinson CB Fast, strong corner. 5'10", 199 lbs who ran a 4.3 40… starts day 1 with Powers
4 97 AJ Jenkins WR Fast receiver (4.39 40) who runs good routes, impressed in postseason play. Poor man's Marvin Harrison (similar build/speed/shiftyness - 6' 190lbs) - should beat out Avery in camp.
5 136 Senio Kelemete OG Solid guard prospect who played tackle in college. 6'4" 310 lbs, should beat out Reitz/McGlynn.
5 170 Tank Carder LB 6'2", 236 lbs. Fast LB - 4.56 speed. Could beat out Conner due to pass coverage skills.
6 206 Michael Smith RB 5'9", 207 lbs. Very fast RB - 4.33 speed, and good receiver out of backfield - limited production due to split carries with Robert Turbin. Could easily outplay Donald Brown and take his job. Or at least become the 3rd down back and kick/punt returner.
7 208 Nick Jean Baptiste NT Boom or bust pick, lets hope boom. Good postseason and workouts. 6'2" 335lbs, could beat out McKinney for NT job by year's end.
7 214 Coty Sensabaugh CB 5'11", 190 lbs with 4.37 speed. Best when playing press man, which Pagano likes to play. Could win 3rd corner job.
7 253 Drake Dunsmore TE/FB 6'2", 240 lbs, 4.6 speed. Versatile TE/FB who can line up all over backfield or in slot. Will start at FB.

Thoughts?? and yes I know, last 4 picks starting will be tough... suggest some alternates if you have other 7th rounders you think could start this year (or next yr with coaching). I really think the first 6 picks should all challenge for starting jobs THIS year. there is enough talent in the draft, and our team sucks enough, to realistically get 4-5 starters in this draft
