View Full Version : AHH NAH's first day Mock Draft 1.0


ahh nah
11-28-2007, 11:52 AM
I completed this last week with last weeks draft order, so it may be a bit off for this week. I had to find time to make it but anyway enjoy the first of many to come (probrbaly the only one I will do before the senior bowl)

**Steve Slaton, Ray Rice, Mario Manningham, Pat White, Justin King DONT declare**

1. Dolphins-Glen Dorsey DT LSU
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Draft%20Jerseys/Dorsey.jpg

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/DorseyG150093006_499.jpg



The Dolphins look like they will end up with the top pick in the draft and may not have many options as far as trading down. Offensively, McFadden would not address any major needs although he is the best player available. Addressing the offensive line has to once again be a top priority for the Phins but tackle may not be as big of a need as once presumed and Jake Long does not seem to be the answer as the number one pick. So it comes down between Dorsey and Chris Long. First things first, Miami needs to figure out for good what scheme they will use. They have aging players all over on defense, and definitely lack the inside nose guard to make the 34 work effectively. Dorsey fits the size description, but one has to wonder if he can play the nose. He ate multiple blockers almost exclusively his senior season at LSU, so it would seem like he has as good a chance as any. Either way, his talent is undeniable and could instantly get the Miami run defense back to respectability.


2. Patriots (49ers)-Darren McFadden RB Arkansas
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/t1_mcfadden.jpg
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Draft%20Jerseys/McFaddeb.jpg



This almost isn’t fair. How can what many people say, “The Best Team Ever” come out of the draft with the best overall player? You can think the 49ers for that one. The Patriots have a team that is built for now, and surprisingly has a great foundation for the future also. They can afford to draft strictly for BPA. The only question mark about them selecting McFadden would be what they would do with Marony, a 1st round pick just two years ago. Even though he has a been a good back, he has not shown he can be a 20-25 carry back game in and game out and has struggled some with injuries. How dynamic would it be to have both of these playmakers in the backfield?


3. Rams-Chris Long DE Virginia
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Draft%20Jerseys/Long.jpg
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/chris_long010b.jpg



Long in my opinion is the best defensive lineman in this years draft and perhaps the best the best few years. Blessed with a talented pedigree, Long has dominated the past two years at Virginia. The Rams have continued to strike out at defensive lineman taken in the draft but Long could be as “cant miss” as they come. Long arms, good speed, great athleticism, and a work ethic that is contagious. With Orlando Pace’s career winding down to an end, the Rams could look “long” and hard at the other player named Long, Jake Long. But in the end, I see them going with the impact lineman to stick next to last years first round DT Adam Carriker.


4. Raiders-Jake Long OT Michigan
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Draft%20Jerseys/Long1.jpg
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/435c6ff4491d1-14-1.jpg



The Raiders need to improve their offensive line, point blank. The Robert Gallery experiment may be just about over, but the Raiders are still back at square one. They have offensive talent, but its hard to showcase it when the line continues to get completely dominated off the point of attack. Long is not a better prospect than Joe Thomas from a year ago, and in my opinion is not top 5 value, but they may have to reach for the guy who can add some talent to the unit. With last years 3rd round pick Mario Henderson on board, the Raiders could possibly solidify the position if Long turns out to be at least half as good as advertised. He has struggled at times this season, including the season finale against Ohio State, but he has good size and feet, and comes from a program that routinely puts out nice lineman.


5. Jets-Vernon Gholston DE/LB Ohio State
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Draft%20Jerseys/Gholston.jpg
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/50-gholston.jpg



Maybe no prospect has risen as much as Gholston has this year. Gholston dominated the Big 10 and also lead the conference in sacks at 13. He looks the part of Shawn Merriman and plays the game as hard as any defensive player on the field. Made Jake Long look silly a couple of times. The Jets need to add a pass rusher and Gholston fits into the hybrid defensive end position.


6. Bengals-James Laurenitus LB Ohio State
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Draft%20Jerseys/Lau.jpg
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Laurinaitis.jpg



The Bengals defensive problems still have not been corrected and this year it cost them the playoffs. With the top 3 defensive lineman off the board the best prospect available would be the LB from Ohio State. Justin Smith does not look like he will be back so if one of the top defensive ends fall, then the Bengals would seriously consider going that route, but Laurenitus can be an instant starter and contributor early on. Still learning to completely shed blocks, he has good closing speed and drops into coverage very nicely. The Bengals have lost some good linebackers to injury the past few years so they are in need of a dose of youth and athleticism.


7. Falcons-Brian Brohm QB Louisville

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Draft%20Jerseys/Brohm.jpg

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/brian_brohm.jpg

The Falcons situation at QB looks bad, very bad. Leftwhich looks lost and Harrinton has already proven he may be best served as a backup. Petrino would have a chance to grab one that he mentored and developed into one of the best in the country. Brohm has fallen out of many’s favor as new QB’s have stepped in, but he has had his best season from a production standpoint, his team’s talent just dropped off tremendously. Brohm has great size, a good background, and many say his football IQ is off the charts. While Ryan may be rated as the higher prospect, I still doubt coach Petrino would pass on Brohm.


8. Saints-Dan Conor LB Penn State
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Draft%20Jerseys/Conor.jpg
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/11-02-05dsports-06b.jpg



The Saints defense lacks a field general, someone to lead by example and be a coach on the field. Dan Conor not only plays the game with a fire, he made the transition to the middle of the field and has thrived. Conor is not overwhelming in any aspect of the game, and may be considered an undersized mike linebacker, but he has great instincts, and should be a 100 plus tackle player his rookie year, even while learning how to play in the NFL.


9. Ravens-Matt Ryan QB Boston College
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Draft%20Jerseys/Ryan.jpg
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/virginia_tech_boston_college_footba.jpg

Matt Ryan has quickly become a favorite QB prospect and its much deserved. He has the size, smarts, and intangibles you look for in a great NFL QB. He may not have a cannon of an arm (an overated quality for a QB prospect), but he can make the necessary throws. Dare I say, he reminds me of a young Tom Brady. The Ravens need a QB, they need some type of future to look forward to at the position, and Ryan would provide an exciting and potentially glorious future.


10. Chiefs-Malcolm Jenkins CB Ohio State
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Draft%20Jerseys/Jenkins.jpg
http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/img40887_t.jpg



Jenkins established himself early as one of the best defensive backs in the country. He is big and strong for his position which could make him a good safety prospect in a weak class. The Chiefs starting corners are aged, and they don’t have much proven behind them. I would think they would look hard at Sam Baker or Otah, but in the end I would see them taking the playmaker in the secondary.


11. Panthers-Sam Baker OT USC

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/sb1.jpg

Im sure Panther fans would boo the selection, with a potential Franchise QB still on the board and with the play of their QB’s this season. But I believe the coaching staff still wants to go with Delhome, and believe with less injuries and a few players they would be right back in the playoffs. Jordan Gross is decent at right tackle, but Wharton has been a liability on the left side. Baker, has struggled on a injury filled line his senior season, but the four year starter has an immense amount of talent and the makings of a 10-15 year starter. A quick penetrating DT or a pass rushing DE could be a possibility, as the Panthers defensive line has struggled to pressure the QB.


12. Vikings-Andre Woodson QB Kentucky

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/woodson.jpg

The Tavares Jackson experiment is still riding its course, but I’m one to believe that if the Vikings want to start new and build around their running game, then they will grab a QB capable of being more than “solid”. Woodson emerged as big time in the SEC the last few years, and has the arm everyone loves as well as the ideal size and mobility. He is not a scrambler, but can buy himself extra throwing time when under pressure. A WR like Bowman or Kelly could be a possibility, but not with Woodson still on the board.


13. Bears-Kenny Phillips S Miami

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Kenny20Phillips.jpg

The Safety position for the Bears makes a lot of tackles, but they give up too many big plays in coverage. Adam Archeletta may has been overrated since he came into the NFL and the Bears would be best served to upgrade him. Phillips had a it of a down year this past season, but he has great athletic talent and a knack for making big plays. He is not quite as good as advertised, and may even fall into the “overated” category himself, but he is certainly a player capable of being big time in the NFL. Good hitter, but also has good coverage skills, and could occasionally play spot corner.


14. Cardinals-Mike Jenkins CB USF

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Jenkins.jpg



Jenkins has been the best CB in the Big East the past two years (yes which means better than Derelle Revis last year) even while not getting as much shine as some. He has great size, and long rangy arms. Rarely, if ever beat deep, even though he does not have elite top end speed. Good bump and run corner who could immediately step in and start. Also is a big hitter, and actually compares favorably to the Cardinals last first round corner Antrel Rolle.


15. Bills-Malcolm Kelly WR Oklahoma

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/3188-malcolm.jpg

Kelly is in my opinion the best receiver in college football and has the talent to be picked in the top 10. Great size, fantastic hands, excellent body control, and a superb route runner, Kelly has everything you look for except breakaway speed. The Bills have smaller receivers that can stretch the field but lack a possession “keep the chains moving” type of impact player.


16. Chargers-Jeff Otah OT Pitt

After finding a gem with McNeil last season it was thought that the Chargers had solved their oline. On the other side of the QB however, Shane Olivea has struggled to maintain the play of a solid starting tackle as he may be a better player at guard. Otah’s stock is on the rise and he may position himself as a very early 1st round pick when the draft comes around.


17. Texans-Jammal Charles RB Texas

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/charles_jamaal_091705_300.jpg

I don’t think Charles as rated as a 1st round pick as of now, but if he declares then his stock will soar after running a low 4.3 and possibly in the 4.2 range. Charles has blazing speed, and has finally started to become an every down runner. A mix between Warrick Dunn and Michael Bennett, Charles has good hands of the backfield, and his shiftiness should allow him to be a great back Kubiak’s rushing scheme. Ahman Green is only a pitstop, and even though fans would most likely be shocked that they passed on Stewert, I think this is the pick they would most likely make.


18. Broncos-Sederick Ellis DT USC

http://www.trojanwire.com/SedricSack.gif

The Bronco’s have struggled on the interior of their defense, well in the front 7 in general. I believe they would prefer a middle linebacker, but if one is not available then they could go to the immediate next option which is at defensive tackle. Ellis has been a consistent rock at USC, and while maybe not spectacular, he can be counted on to disrupt the opposing team’s line. One has to question if Ellis would be big enough to fit into the Bronco’s plan at DT. But Marcus Thomas and a guy like Ellis could end up being a fantastic rotation of interior lineman.


19. Eagles-Adarius Bowman WR Oklahoma State

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/bowman_picture_-_class_notes.jpg

The Eagles have lacked a consistent big time playmaker at receiver since Owens left and Reggie Brown has still not taken that next step to become one. With McNabb next year or not, the Eagles need to add a next level type of receiver, and Bowman is quickly making a case for the best college football has to offer. He is big, tall, strong, and may evoke images of Owens when he has the ball in his hands. A TE like Fred Davis is a possibility as well as someone to insert on the front seven, but Bowman may be the best player available.


20. Redskins-Chris Ellis DE Virginia Tech

The Skins would have loved for Bowman to fall into their laps, but in this scenario would be heated to see him go to Philly. I do feel they need a playmaker on offense, but if one is not available then adding a pass rusher would be the next choice. He had 8.5 sacks in 07 and showed a great burst off the edge. Carter while still a good player, is approaching 30 and the other side is aged and almost non-existent when it comes to pressure.


21. Seahakws-John Stewert RB Oregon

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/img49083_t.jpg

Shaun Alexander is a shell of his former self, and at age 30 most likely has his best days behind him. Maurice Morris has stepped in and played well, but you have to wonder if they could pass on a player like Stewert. He has great size, and can pound the ball for 20 plus carries, but he plays the game at a very fast pace, and will never be confused for a “slow power” runner. He’s not always consistent, which may cause him to slide a bit on draft day, but he has an immense amount of talent and could develop into the next Larry Johnson.


22. Cowboys (Browns)-Reggie Smith DB Oklahoma

If Stewert fell to the Cowboys a spot later, I feel he would be the pick almost immediately, and with two first round picks, the Boys could go to a number of interesting combinations of picks. Henry and Newman continue to be a good duo at corner, but depth is starting to become an issue. Truth be told, by next year both corners will be on the wrong side of 30 years old. Smith is a versatile talent, often being asked to play Wide Receiver and Safety for the Sooners. He has since settled into the corner back position and even with limited experience has become one of the best in the country. His versatility could help the Cowboys immediately, as he could also play some safety.


23. Bucs-Desean Jackson WR Cal

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/1006desean7TABAK.jpg



Jackson is a homerun threat waiting to happen, yet he has mostly only shown that as a returner. As a receiver, he is still coming into his own, although I will say he is more developed than Ted Ginn (who went top 10) was at this point in his career. The Bucs lack a consistent number 2 receiver and would love to have a kick returner with the ability to run one back. Galloway may need a replacement within the next 2-3 years and Jackson is in the mold of a field stretcher. The Bucs could look to upgrade the left tackle position, or draft a DT if one is available.


24. Titans-Early Doucet WR LSU

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Early20Doucet.jpg

Its not secret that Vince Young has no real weapons for him to pass to. It is almost a given that they will look to add a playmaker for Vince in the offseason. Doucet was injured for a bit of his senior season, but when healthy is one of the best in the country. Not all that big, he is still very strong and has good speed to go along with good route running. In a negative aspect many have questioned if he can be more than a possession receiver, as he has never been that much of a deep threat.


25. Lions-Xavier Adibi LB Virginia Tech

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/VaTech_ADIBI_BL.jpg

The Lions have come a long way, offensively but much more importantly defensively. Cornerback is their most pressing need, and a guy like Antone Cason would seem like the logical pick, but in nice class of corners I could see them waiting till the second round for one. Ernie Sims has developed into a great OLB, but the middle is still a problem area. Xavier Adibi stepped in the middle when Vince Hall went down with injury and did not miss a beat. This could convince the Lions to place Adibi in the middle, since in the Tampa 2, the LB is required to drop into coverage…something Adibi excels at.


26. Steelers- Michael Oher OT Ole Miss

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/spt_23_oher_pic_11-23-2006_AA93IIP.jpg

The left side of the Steelers OL is in need of an upgrade and they could get a steal in Oher. Although some project him as a guard at the next level, he has shown at times to be more than just a mauler. Since the Steelers are said to be moving to the 43, then they might look to add a defensive player that fits that scheme.


27. Giants-Keith Rivers LB USC

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/Rivers.jpg

The Giants need some playmakers on defense, particularly linebacker. Rivers did not quite have the season many projected, and did not become the beast many hoped. But he is still one of the top talents in the country and can be a long time starter on defense.


28. Jags-Quentin Groves DE Auburn

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/378298.jpg

The Jags have a great push inside, but lack a consistent pass rusher. I thought they would have addressed that last offseason but they opted to focus first on the secondary. Groves played through 2007 injured, but still showed off a quick first step around the edge. He is one of the SEC’s most productive ends ever, and although undersized, should develop into a constant force.


29. 49ers (Colts)-Shawn Crable DE/LB Michigan

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/4369b09283bc0-57-1.jpg

The 49ers traded a 1st round pick away, but would still manage to get a prospect who many feel will be a top 15-20 pick. Adding a pass rusher like Crable could immediately help the defense of the 9ers, which has struggled mightily at times. I also would not be surprised to see them go in the direction of a big wide receiver like Bowman or Kelly, but with the Colts pick most likely being late, they may not be in position to draft either.


30. Packers-James Davis RB Clemson

The image “http://www.williston.k12.sc.us/wehs/2006webpages/jamesdavis3.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

As good as the Packers have been, they have not had a consistent running game. This team wants to win now, and adding someone who could step in right away and help Farve should be top priority. I would not be surprised to see them draft the highest rated TE, someone like Fred Davis, but James Davis would offer too much value to pass on. Davis has great power and reminds me of Thomas Jones, but his speed is underated.


31. Cowboys-DJ Hall WR Alabama

http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q243/turkblack/draft/djhall.jpg

The Boys may not need a receiver to come in and start right away, which is why they can accord to take one to develop. Everyone keeps screaming running back, but im not so sure they would not just be contempt with Barber in 08 as the fulltime starter. DJ Hall has good hands and at times has been unstoppable in the SEC. His senior season was filled with a disappointing second half, as some felt he took plays off, although a lot of it can be accredited to the Alabama QB situation.


32. Patriots (Forfeit for CHEATING!!!!)

Two very good Lions picks, The may go OT in the second but i love tribble for the return game so its good. Adibi is my boy too.

One has to question if Ellis would be big enough to fit into the Bronco’s plan at DT. But Marcus Thomas and a guy like Ellis could end up being a fantastic rotation of interior lineman.

Yeah, that's an issue. I just don't see Thomas & Ellis starting side-by-side in the present scheme. I suspect the coaching staff is looking for a bigger body to team with Thomas.

IMO Frank Okam isn't a great fit for the 3-4 nose. Questionable effort and a little taller than ideal for the spot. Antoine Cason, Dre Moore, Barry Richardson, or Chris Williams would be a good pick at that spot.

Also, the Falcons have the Texans' second.

1. Dolphins-Glen Dorsey DT LSU






The Dolphins look like they will end up with the top pick in the draft and may not have many options as far as trading down. Offensively, McFadden would not address any major needs although he is the best player available. Addressing the offensive line has to once again be a top priority for the Phins but tackle may not be as big of a need as once presumed and Jake Long does not seem to be the answer as the number one pick. So it comes down between Dorsey and Chris Long. First things first, Miami needs to figure out for good what scheme they will use. They have aging players all over on defense, and definitely lack the inside nose guard to make the 34 work effectively. Dorsey fits the size description, but one has to wonder if he can play the nose. He ate multiple blockers almost exclusively his senior season at LSU, so it would seem like he has as good a chance as any. Either way, his talent is undeniable and could instantly get the Miami run defense back to respectability.


Perfect write up, insight and pick for Miami. Very impressive dude. You pretty much nailed Miami and their situation right now. I think Dorsey in the 3-4 might be more useful as a DE and slide to DT in the 4-3 (which I personally feel we will switch back to).

1. Dolphins-Lawrence Jackson DE USC

-Versatile enough to be shifted around on the defensive line and second level of defense

Jackson is a nice player and more dline depth would be a nice addition. I would prefer here either a LB to fill the need for replacing zach (pretty much done finally after missing 6 games this year so far with rampant concussions), but I am not against another defensive line pick to beef up the system. Another thing to look at here would be WR as we have needs there since Booker is gone next year and hagan cane seem to catch a cold even. If he runs a good 40 time I wouldn’t mind Cason here either I think he could be a steal at this point of the draft. I wouldnt mind Raji in the 3rd for a Nose tackle if he is there also.


16. Phins(Chargers)-Terrell Thomas CB USC

-The Phins need help everywhere on defense

I personally like Rodgers a lot more then him but I think CB is a need for the team to add with Allen (whom I feel is a nice number 2 CB). Dre Moore for another beefy presence on the line would be nic here but you have Jackson already in the 2nd round. I wouldn’t mind a right end here if one shows up as worthy too as we lack one severely in an offense that showcases a good Tight end normally.

11-28-2007, 02:31 PM
I love the 1st pick value wise Jenkins is worthy of a top 3-4 pick. Chris Williams in the 2nd round would be the better pick. FOR KC thatis

Ugly Raiders draft. Long is a bad fit for our blocking scheme, and I have absolutely no use for a Gator WR.


Sed Ellis in Rd1 is much, much better. Our DL is far worse than our OL, whose struggles you greatly exaggerated, btw.

Don't know much about Ellis, but I like Bennett in the 2nd. Good value pick. Also, did not notice Calais Campbell in the draft, maybe you meant to put him in the non declare group.

Even though I think he would declare lol. The Redskins would be more than happy to take him at 20.

You did not mention Loadholt going back to OU for another season, so why did he not go in the first two rounds? He is potentially a top 20 pick in the first round and although I think Malcolm Jenkins would be awesome in KC, I see us addressing our CB issue via FA. Loadholt has the size (6'9" and 350lbs) to be the road-grader, powerful downhill type blocker that Herm Edwards is looking to build to make LJ into a monster (again).

I'd say give us Loadholt in the first and Cason (who is sure to fall to the 2nd round because of a slow 40 time, which everyone knows make you a bad CB) in the 2nd round.

I like the time spent on your mock, though, nice reasoning for your picks and the pictures were a good way to break up all the text.

Good Bills draft.

In the second, I wouldn't mind Terrel Thomas either.

The Texans 2nd rounder belongs to ATL due to the Matt Schaub trade last year. Good picks given the circumstances.

I would rather have Andre Woodson for the Ravens, but I wouldn't complain about Matt Ryan (#10 belongs to Troy Smith)

Jake Long is a terrible pick for the Raiders.

Raiders use the ZBS now they can address their OL in FA and in later rounds. When was the last time a team that used the ZBS drafted an OL-men with a top 5 draft pick? DT S.Ellis or DE Gholston would be much better picks

The redskins dont draft DL on day one, give us a corner. 2nd round pick is good.

ahh nah

Like the other Raider fans said Long isn't a good fit for the Raiders and the 2nd round pick is a big no, no...

I don't think Steve Justice is a good fit for the Bucs. It would be nice to upgrade Wade, but I'm starting to think that FA will be our best bet in order to do so. Veteran experience is important at the position and Justice is just too small for our line. He would like like a kicker standing next to Sears & Joseph. Instead of Justice we could draft a CB, DT or RB. Charles Godfrey would be my selection. We need a big physical corner after seeing Buchanon get manhandled by Colston & Copper for jump balls.

If Gosder Cherilus is there in the second round the Jets have to take him

do you really think the Bucs will go RB in the first few rounds with the emergence of Grahm and the addition of Bennett (along with Caddy coming back next year)....

If Pittman doesn't come back, yes. I'm the biggest Graham fan you'll ever meet but we need insurance at the position. I like Bennett too but he's not an ideal Gruden back and for that reason I think he will be scrapped as a stop-gap solution.

I dont think theres anyway Falcons pick that low. We are contending with the number 2 spot right now with 3 other teams.

Good first and second round pick though. And like another poster said, Falcons have Texans second round pick.

The giants picks are great, Keith Rivers would fit very well in our defense, Zach Bowman gives us versatility, height, possibly a cover safety, and more physicality, but has not lived up to his hype.
