This is my first offering to this blog and I would like to thank Kevin for the opportunity to post here. I have been posting mocks at various places for the last 7 years so it's always nice to have somewhere new to share my thoughts.

Hey Kris- Thanks for posting this and welcome to the blog. It will be interesting to see how these projections change as we get closer to the draft. A couple of interesting things stand out to me as a Georgia fan- AJ Green reuniting with MoMass in Cleveland and Justin Houston going to the Falcons. LB is definitely a position of need with the Falcons (Nicholas and Peterson are free agents). We definitely need someone to get after the QB.

Another interesting thing to watch with the draft this year is where the QBs get slotted. With Andrew Luck staying in the draft there really doesn't look like there is a guy who is the #1 guy.

I wonder how much higher Mark Ingram would have went if he would have been eligible last year.

I would really quibble with Ingram that low, although I wouldn't mind too much if he really ended up with the Saints, the closest thing to a rooting interest I have in the NFL.

Wait a minute...A Bama fan and a Saints fan. Next thing you are going to tell me that you like the Heat and the Yankees.
