We can all be glad the Aldon wasn't found with a gun in Mexico ... there is no trial, there are no excuses, try to buy or carry a gun in Mexico and you go to jail, period!

Don't particularly like your pick, but certainly understand it given the mock draft rules ... the good news is that fortunately Baalke will not find himself in this position ...

The right picks for #56 and #61 are WR Cody Latimer and DE/OLB Marcus Smith ... Smith is more likely to fall, so Cody Latimer

Have you not read or heard Baalke's criteria for CBs? Don't think that it has anything to do with Seattle's D; rather, it's a response to the continuously growing size/speed of the WRs in the NFL

Let's be honest ... this entire mock is predicated on the idea that Jacksonville does not take a QB at #3 ... and they would be dumb to do that IF either Clowney and/or Mack is still available ...
