It happens every year. As the season draws to a close, a bunch of people pretend to know a lot more about football than they do and predict what teams will be selecting which players in the upcoming draft. It is the phenomenon known as the mock draft, and it seems to increase in volume season after season. And why shouldn’t it? All of us already pretend to be coaches with fantasy teams throughout the regular season. Why not pretend to be GM’s during the off-season?
Last week, I took a look at who and what position the franchise should draft in the first round, but today I thought it would be interesting to take a look at all of the positions and players that may be available to us (and make sense) at the 20’th pick and hear what you have to say about who we should draft and why. As I am not a huge college football guy, I can’t say that I have seen most of these players in action. I know that there are others in my position so I have included a link to a highlight play from the respective players so you can see them in action. Just click on the highlight of the players name, and peep the video.
If you’ve watched any number of games with any of the following athletes, please sound off about them on our boards, as all of us here at Titan Sized appreciate the opinions of our valued readers. Also, if you ever agree or disagree with anything you see on our site, let yourself be heard and open up a discussion. Through exploration comes discovery, people.

Of the players listed above, I think the two players that would be an absolute slam-dunk (to mix sports analogies) would be Floyd and DeCastro, but I don’t think there’s any chance either of them are available to us at 20.
What do you think? Who of the above players mentioned should we take? Think we should select someone that’s not listed above? Let us know your thoughts on the matter. Thanks for your continued interest, guys and gals.
Also, many thanks to all of the people who made these videos available.
