    Hello. Welcome to the insanity of another mock draft done by yours truly. Let's get started, shall we?

    (I'm assuming that re-sign Ogletree and Donald to long-term extensions. Also assuming that we lose Tru, Gaines, Barwin, Easley, Joyner, Alexander, and Dunbar, amongst others.)

    Here are the trades first:

    Mark Barron, 2019 second, 2018 fifth and 2018 seventh to Cleveland for 2018 second (Philadelphia) and 2018 second (Houston).

    Tavon Austin to the Kansas City Chiefs for 2018 third.

    (Cleveland could use a weakside linebacker that fits Gregg Williams' scheme. Barron fits the bill. The Chiefs need veteran receivers for Mahomes to throw to, and Austin fits the bill there.)

    1st - Derwin James, SS, Florida State.

    2nd (Philadelphia) - Chukwuma Okorafor, OT, Western Michigan.

    2nd (Houston) -.Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville.

    2nd - Adonis Alexander, CB, Virginia Tech

    3rd (Kansas City) - Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona State.

    3rd - Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame.

    4th - Jack Cichy, ILB, Wisconsin.

    6th (Detroit) - Jaylon Ferguson, OLB, Louisiana Tech.

    6th - Viane Talamaivao, OG, USC.

    (I'm assuming that John Johnson takes control of the starting free safety spot, which leaves Derwin James - my favorite prospect in this draft - open for the starting strong safety spot. In fact, the only reason he's here is because of a knee injury that cost him last season. Okorafor is young and raw, but intelligent and athletically-gifted. Put him next to Whitworth, and he'll do well until it's time for him to take the mantle of blindside protector. The Alexanders are two ballhawking corners - Zaire is 5'11", Adonis is 6'3". Ballage is a hell of a receiving back with the physical measurables of Leonard Fournette. St. Brown - aside from having my favorite name ever - is a 6'4" deep threat who could step up in Austin's place. Cichy is the team captain and a steady contributor. Ferguson is underrated by most, but he could make a jump up the rankings. Talamaivao is a rare four-year starter who can provide depth at guard.)

    QB - Jared Goff.
    RB - Todd Gurley.
    FB - Sam Rogers.
    WR - Robert Woods.
    WR - Josh Reynolds/Mike Thomas.
    WR - Cooper Kupp.
    TE - Gerald Everett.
    TE - Tyler Higbee.
    LT - Andrew Whitworth.
    LG - Chukwuma Okorafor.
    C - Cody Wichmann.
    RG - Rob Havenstein.
    RT - Jamon Brown.

    LE - Tanzel Smart.
    NT - Michael Brockers.
    RE - Aaron Donald.
    LOLB - Samson Ebukam/Ejuan Price.
    LILB - Josh Forrest/Bryce Hager/Jack Cichy.
    RILB - Alec Ogletree.
    ROLB - Robert Quinn.
    CB - Jaire Alexander/Adonis Alexander.
    CB - Kayvon Webster.
    CB - Nickell Robey-Coleman.
    FS - John Johnson.
    SS - Derwin James.

    K - Greg Zuerlein.
    P - Johnny Hekker.
    LS - Jake McQuaide.

    Crazy Crazy man!

    Thrown in some interesting trades too!

    I like what you did for Whitworth's heir. No Centre selected at all though?

    But I have to agree Equanimeous St. Brown does have the best name ever!!

    All I know is that if we roll this lineup out there, we are going to have a lot of penalties for too many players on the field.
    Lol

    How bad do you think we will be? James is probably a top 10 pick next year, wouldnt be shocked to see him in the top 5 but most likely top 10 because the QBs will probably go early which may push him down some.

    Nah, I don't think we need a center. Cody Wichmann, in my opinion, could be the center of the future or Eldrenkamp, possibly.

    Told you I was crazy. ;)

    That's seriously his name. But yeah, Key and Peele would have a field day with his name.

    They aren't going to be on the field at the same time, man! :p

    Same as I always pick them at this time of year: winning the Super Bowl. James could be a top ten pick. He could also fall because of his knee injuries. There's at least four quarterbacks who could push him down, as well as several other players.
