Noles stayed true to his word and we had a democratic, majority rules MCM draft over at Mocking the Draft.
Come to the War Room tomorrow at noon eastern to get involved in rounds 3-7.
See who the MCM community drafted after the jump.
The First Round had lots of surprises:
The Vikings chose Michael Brockers with the 3rd pick. The Rams took Richardson at 6 instead of WR. The Sparkle Kitties took Michael Floyd at 7 when Blackmon was on the board. Blackmon fell all the way to 13 until he found a home with the Cardinals. Meantime Buffalo chose Martin over an available Riley Reiff.
All the while Ingram slid down the board to the Jets at 16 even though it seemed they were trying to trade out. Speaking of trades and possibly the craziest move of the night, the Eagles traded away their all their draft picks but a 6th to make two moves, getting Fletcher Cox at 9 from Carolina and Luke Kuechly at 14 from the Seahawks.
By the time pick 20 came around for the Titans both Whitney Mercilus, DE and Mark Barron, S were gone. Mercilus was taken at 15 by the Dolphins (traded back with Eagles) and Barron was taken by the Chargers at 18.
MCM voters narrowed their choice between Stephen Hill, WR and Stephon Gilmore, CB
With a difference of one vote the MCM community chose:
With the 20th pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Tennesee Titans select:
Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina
The second round saw a run on pass rushers. As four were taken off the board by pick 47. Chandler Jones at 38 to the Jags, Andre Branch at 42 to the Dolphins, Vinny Curry at 44 to the Chargers and Shea McLellin at 47 to the Ravens. At this point our goal was to grab the best DL available.
With all the top DE talent gone the MCM community narrowed our second round pick between two DT’s. Brandon Thompson, Clemson and Kendall Reyes, Connecticut. This time the vote was a little more favored to one candidate.
With the 52nd pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Tennesee Titans select:
Kendall Reyes, DT/DE, Connecticut
What do you think of our first two picks? Kudos to Noles who actually voted the other way on both picks, yet still drafted the majority choice.
