    That would be awesome, but considering teams are devaluing the RBs, I expect Lacy to go in Round 2 or 3 (worst). I think we "only" have 3 first rounders this year in Fluker, Milliner, and Warmack with Dee and CM going in the top 10. Williams and Lacy could sneak in there with good workouts, interviews, or just based off of team needs.

    Just a technical issue, but this isn't an ESPN mock draft. It was done by Sports Illustrated.

    What round is Barrett Jones supposed to be selected?

    Sounds good to me... in either case, it's hard to see why someone would decide not to play for Alabama.

    I would love to see Barrett Jones playing in purple up in Baltimore next year. I think he would be a great replacement for Matt Birk who I think will probably retire after this season. I see him as a low first, high second, but I am by no means an expert.

    Chip Kelly has said before that he wants a QB that can run if needed. He says he prefers a guy that can pass before running. With that in mind, SI goes with Geno Smith? Really? Most rushes in a game this year - 10 against TCU. Most yards in a game this year - 65 against Marshall. Longest run of the season - 28 against Marshall.

    Geno Smith isn't a mobile QB like many want to believe. The Eagles may draft him, but I don't see it.

    Amazing to think this could be the third year in a row that at least four Alabama players are selected in the first round!

    Re: SI mock draft has 5 from Bama going in the 1st round

    I remember all preseason and during the year analysts were saying there isn't the top tier nfl talent on this team. I never understood what they were talking about. Maybe it's not 2010 talented but this team is loaded with future nfl talent including guys that will go in the first two rounds.

    You were correct coming into this year but this was the year of the RB in the NFL (Peterson, Foster, Rice, Charles, Lynch, Trent, Doug Martin, etc..). I think some teams will still put an emphasis on the running game to protect their #1 investment (QB) and this will get Eddie in the 1st round.

    In a mock draft from the Senior Bowl he was projected to be the 40th pick. I think he is too good and too smart to not be a first rounder. I like Barrett a lot.
