i gave it a B, mainly because i dont want the GIants to pass on Adibi in round 2, and add to our over-crowded CB spot. but its pretty good, and i'd take it from a giants view.

In round one we will take that OLB from the USC, forgot his name but its not those 2 you listed in round one. Round 2 we will take a TE.



its Keith Rivers.

My reasoning for our two picks

Round 1: Spaggs is going to run a system where the Defensive linemen are very active on every play. We will need tons of depth on the defensive line to keep the players fresh. Our defensive Tackles right now are Robbins, Cofield, Alford and the last spot is a toss up. Robbins doesn't really fit the scheme. We need small, quick, athletic DTs. Robbins is a big beefy guy. Bottom line: Ellis fits the bill for us next year because I believe we may struggle a bit at the DT position this year. He also fits the scheme.

Round 2: Sure we have Ross and Webster. But both McQuarters and Madison will be gone after this year. I'm not sold on Underwood or Dockery. We will need one more CB next year.

Wheres Earl Bennett and Jon Goff? Goff is like an Urlacher type of player now that hes down to 235, just cause he has better range. Hes not just a 3-4 ilb like people think thats it, he cant fit all schemes about now. I gave it a D, but ill give u +rep when i can again, good work and i like stewart for the pack, but i would like EB in the second, but hey whatever

The draft is decent but even though I'm a die hard Oher fan I think he resembels Jon Stewert just a little bit Oher would be great for Atlanta which by the way I like the Brennan pick but a bit to high possibly if it was in the teens but not the top ten.

Kenny Philliips is described as a mixture of Sean Taylor and Ed Reed.

As for the order. TB seems in disarray. Old QB, weak O-line, aging defense, Carnell hasn't been the same. Just seems like a very unstable situation.

Its not just Tampa, I think they could very possibly have the number 2 pick, i doubt it(something more along the lines of 8-12), but the later parts of the round are questionable, regarding order

Brian Cushing is a monster Pick for us.. I love his versatility as a standup DE/OLB.


However DE is not a need.

I mean, don't get me wrong, if somehow Chris Long miraculously fell to round 2, I'd be begging for him.. but I think Chris Long is a top 20 pick... Likely to a needy 3-4 team (SF/Bal(Pryce)/Cleveland/NYJ)

I'd love it.. However, this is where I'd have to say.. we just extended Keisel 2006 offseason for about 4 years, and Aaron Smith for 5 years this past offseason. We just drafted Ryan McBean... Signed Nick Eason, and Signed UDFA Derrick Jones who is looking to be our next UDFA Gem.


So, again, I'd be ecstatic if we could get both Cushing and Chris Long, however I don't think Long will be there, and if he was, I don't know if we have room for him.

I'd look LT, like Tony Hills of Texas.

Bengals don't have any reason to take an OT. Two of our best - highest paid - players are OT's (Willie Anderson and Levi Jones) plus Andrew Whitworth can and has played OT as well as Stacy Andrews potentially taking over RT.

We'll probably be looking at a OLB/DE and maybe a DT if the right one came along.

I would love it if the 49ers ended up like that. Not only do they have a great year but get a good NT prospect and a huge WR. Nice job on those. I can't really comment on other teams because I am not really a big College Football fan, I only watch every now and again.

Nice Eagles picks. Both fill needs, though Earl Bennett, if he's still available would be nice in round 2 to pair with Reggie Brown.

I like the bears first pick, even though grossman will be in the superbowl the defense will carry him the whole, but I hate the secound pick, no way we take dt if we wanted a dt we would have taken one this and there were a lot of good ones left too. Give us a left tackle or that receiver Urruttia.

Pretty good Seahawks draft. It would help the offense alot but WR is not a huge need. I do think Desean Jackson is BPA though. Engram is getting older and Hackett will be a FA next season so it could happen though Burellson and Branch have pretty big contracts. TE is a big need so that was a good pick in round 2.

Not a huge fan of the Falcons draft.

Brennan? Hell no. Small. Bad throwing motion. Average arm strength. College system. Oher, Maualuga, Jackson, Kelly, Okam, Richardson, Tyson Jackson, Doucet, Lawrence Jackson, Bowman, Dan Conor...

Gaither? Not a huge fan. Eh pick. I like Keith Rivers, Dre Moore, Chris Long, Chris Ellis, Adibi, Pressley, Bryant, Goff, Bennett, Vince Hall...

PJ Hill I would love if he came out. I seriously doubt he does, but I love the kid and he would be a great pick.

Shawn Crable is in there.

I don't see Chad Henne as a great pro QB. Nothing special physically, and he has kind of a funky delivery. I see him in the 3rd or 4rth round.

DeSean Jackson seems like a one dimensional player. Just a track star playing football. I said the same thing about Ted Ginn though, so we'll see.

He's eligible. But there are 5 more rounds in the draft. :)

The Bucs just drafted Sabby Piscitelli in the 2nd to play strong safety and Tanard Jackson in the 4th to likely play free safety. With all the other weaknesses on the team, I'd so much rather see them go QB, LOT, or DT.

Nooo....Jackson is way more polished than Ginn. Jackson has this ability that Ginn doesn't where, get this, he can actually run more than 4 routes. Yes, it's amazing, but he can do it ;)

I would hate passing on Mcfadden though because if we are drafting there it would mean brown got injured or was horrible. IF that is the case you have to look at McFadden at least.

But I like the players even if not the draft position for miami

Call yourself a Giants fan?

This mock sucks.

Not one of our two biggest needs are addressed there (OLB and LT). DT isn't even a need for us and since we drafted Ross CB is definetly not a need right now.

Not one of our two biggest needs are addressed there (OLB and LT). DT isn't even a need for us and since we drafted Ross CB is definetly not a need right now.
The reasoning for our picks

1. DT - Our DT rotation has only 3 guys that are even worthy of seeing the field. Barry Cofield and Jay Alford are the only two of those three that even fit Spaggs system. In our current D-system we need small, quick athletic DTs. Robbins does not fit that bill. In this same system, the Lineman have to be very active, and therefore, have to stay fresh. We will need to add another solid DT to our rotation next year. Ellis fits the bill perfectly.

2. CB - McQuarters and Madison will not be on our team next year. Ross will be one starter. The verdict is still out on Webster. I'm not sold on guys like Dockery, Underwood or McPherson quite yet. We will need to add one more.

Why I didn't pick an OT in the first two rounds - Next years OT class is packed. If the need arises, we could pick a great OT in round 3.

Why I didn't pick OLB - Why would I? We have tons of depth at the OLB position. Wilkinson, Blackburn, DeOssie. All guys that I would have faith in to start if the need ever arose.

Thanks for posting your reasons, I was quite rude with my original reply, and I apologise.

I am not quite comfortable with Kiwi at OLB and with Strahan almost done I would like him to go back to DE next season and would prefer a natural player in that position instead. I also don't see Blackburn, Wilkinson and De Ossie as anything more than depth right now, and whether any of these guys can transform into good starters I not entirely sure.

I also view LT as our biggest need since if we want to get back to being a challenging team right away a strong LT to step in right away to allow Diehl to go back to LG is a neccessity IMO. Yes we may get a good mid round LT, but the chances these guys are ready to step in right away aren't that big.

I also admire your optimism as I don't see us having a draft pick in the twenties next season!

It's alright.

DE is an interesting idea also. I wouldn't be surpised to see a DE on day one either. Kiwi did have a great year at DE last year, but I think he can maximize his athleticism and potential at OLB. I've said it before, He is too athletic to have his hand in the dirt with the rest of the pigs up front.

Well people thought we'd be taking an LT early this year. Our coaches obviously saw something they liked in either Diehl or Whimper. If they really stink it up, which I doubt, LT may be a round 1 pick. I have faith in our LT situation as of right now.

Yeah I've been reading on the Giants site than Whimper is lagging way behind Diehl in mini camp, and ideally I'd like a stud at LT so Diehl can return to his natural position.

Well I guess your really not a Minnesota fan, but when you consider the fact that they had one of the better drafts and didn't lose any key players from last years team I don't see how they can be worse than last season?

Brohm wouldn't be the pick for the Vikings, I think they'ed take Woodson over him. Brohm misses to much time due to injury to be a top pick and is going to have to have an great season if he hopes to hold onto the top spot on draft boards. I dont think he's going to be great in a new system even though he doesn't play against nearly the same competitiion Woodson does.

In the second round I would rather the Vikings take Fred Davis, but you must not be high on him because you don't even have him going in the first two rounds.

You also have Jared Gaither going to ATL at 37, but he's in the Sup. Draft.

I can't see Minnesota picking first, even if it is the popular pick. Yes Jackson is a bit question mark, but it's not like Brad Johnson was good last year, and Minnesota only got better this offseason. They should have a great ground game and a good defense again. It's possible, just doesn't seem very likely.

Agreed, Plus they play in the NFC North a division that has one strong team and then it drops off. Minnesota's improved offensively and gets a couple of young former first round picks back from injury in Erasmus James and Chad Greenway.

I think most people just put the Vikings #1 so it's easy for their mocks. They know very little about Jackson and assume Brian Brohm has to be the first pick so the Vikings just make it easy.

The play of the secondary will improve with Leslie Frazier as the Vikings' new defensive coordinator, and that's considering the loss of Mike Tomlin. Frazier, who was also an 8-year veteran and a starting cornerback on the 1985 Bears team, is an exceptional defensive backs coach.

He coached the Eagles secondary at its peak, as the DBs coach from 1999-2002. As the DC for the Bengals from 2003-2004, he turned the personnel there into one of the best takeaway squads in the league, which the Bengals haven't been able to recapture since. And since joining the Colts in 2005, Frazier produced the best DBs play in the Dungy era in Indianapolis, with a Super Bowl championship ring as testment to his coaching ability.

2. Tampa Bay - Kenny Phillips - S

34. Tampa Bay - Sam Keller - QB


The Bucs have 0, I mean 0 need for a S. We drafted 2 this year and have 2 that started last year. There are better QBs available in the 2nd round. Also consider UT for either pick.

I would do Ellis in the first and Booty in the second. Or Ainge.
