New Football Outsiders Mock Draft w/ Trades

Football Outsiders

There is good and bad in this mock draft.

The Good: Has us trading down with NYG for the 29th and the 60th.(One of my preferred moves)

The Bad: Has Britton taken the pick before us.

The Ugly:

29. Chicago Bears (from New York Giants): Brian Robiskie, WR, Ohio State. Percy Harvin has the higher grade at the moment, but taking an SEC wide receiver who didn't play in a pro-style offense (or at least wasn't used in a particularly pro-style way) is a move any experienced GM should be able to sniff out by now. Besides, with Devin Hester across the field, Robiskie makes much more sense for the Bears offense. He gives them a possession receiver with the size and hands to pick up first downs while Hester operates deep and Greg Olsen occupies the safeties. He might be available ten picks from now, but the Bears probably won't have the luxury of trading down again to find out.

It has us taking Robiskie while Nicks and Britt are both still on the board. This isn't to say he doesn't end up being the better of the three, and he's definately the most polished at this point, but I'm really unsure if the value is there.
