Sorry for the two-day layoff, first off. Internet-wide mock is coming this weekend, and hopefully we’ll get a new 1st round mock. Now onto the post:
For the second year in a row, I was approached by Don Delco, the man behind the genius of No Logo Needed, one of, if not the best Cleveland Browns blogs out there. Not that that’s hard to do or anything, being that absolutely nobody is insane enough to want to blog about the Browns. All kidding aside, Don has done a great thing the last two seasons. He creates a “Mock Draft Among Blogs”, where blogs representing each NFL team make a mock selection as if they were the GM of their team. No trades are made, just picks.
Last season, I (incorrectly) selected wide receiver Kenny Britt out of Rutgers. This season I picked Jermaine Gresham, the tight end out of Oklahoma. Note that I passed on cornerback Devin McCourty out of, coincidentally, Rutgers. You can see the full post, written entirely by me, on NoLogoNeeded.com. Here is a quick snap of my reasoning behind the selection.
His size (6’6″, 261 pounds) and his versatility are huge factors that make him a top tight end prospect. Many teams may pass on the former Sooner because of his torn ligaments that kept him out of action in 2009, but the natural ability and work ethic as a player that the Ravens like so much is shown by Gresham’s workouts and his ability to come back to football so quickly.
