View Full Version : 2/29 Mock with some trades

02-29-2008, 06:31 PM
No details on the trades, Buffalo and NE swap, and Denver and Seattle swap.

1. Miami Dolphins- Matt Ryan QB Boston College

I've been wanting to have a mock with Ryan #1 so here it is. The FA deals are looking like we're not gonna need a rush backer and from what I've heard Ireland loves Ryan.

2. St. Louis Rams- Chris Long DE Virginia

I like this pick a lot more than the Dorsey pick I've been giving them. Fills a need, I like them going DE more than DT.

3. Atlanta Falcons- Glenn Dorsey DT LSU

They are supposed to be in the lead for Turner and I don't really like McFadden here either. Really considered going with Long but I think the new coach wants to get a DT. Probably have Long here next time though.

4. Oakland Raiders- Darren McFadden RB Arkansas

With Kelly being locked up I don't see DT being picked this high. Davis goes for the flashy pick with McFadden. I can see Jake here but don't buy it.

5. Kansas City Chiefs- Jake Long OT Michigan

A bit of a no brainer here. Ideal situation for KC.

6. New York Jets- Vernon Gholston DE/OLB Ohio State

I've been a bit eh on this pick but I think the combine locks him up here. They've added Jenkins but need a pass rush.

7. Buffalo Bills (f/NE)- Sedrick Ellis DT USC

I wanted Ellis going here, had a bit of a hard time deciding who trades up. I considered the Saints and Carolina but went with Buffalo because of the lack of options for them at 11.

8. Baltimore Ravens- Leodis McKelvin CB Troy

Not really much of an explanation from me here, same pick as last time, fits a need, value fits.

9. Cincinnati Bengals- Derrick Harvey DE Florida

They've added Rogers up front but still need some outside pressure. They're supposed to be moving to a 3-4 so Harvey fits, might have to drop some weight but still looked good at his current weight.

10. New Orleans Saints- Aqib Talib CB Kansas

Had a bit of a tough time with this pick, they added Vilma and brought back another backer who I can't recall right now, so I think they pass on Rivers. Thought about DRC, but I think Talib has the better chance of going this high. Really want to hear from Saints fans about this one.

11. New England Patriots (f/BUF)- Keith Rivers LB USC

If I had them stay at 7 this would have likely been the pick. Talib and Rivers are a bit interchangeable but I like Rivers here more.

12. Seattle Seahawks (f/DEN) - Jonathan Stewart RB Oregon

Seems they miss out on Turner and they're bringing in Alge for TE so I can see them making a move. Denver is the type to deal so that's why I choose them.

13. Carolina Panthers- Ryan Clady OT Boise State
14. Chicago Bears- Rashard Mendenhall RB Illinois
15. Detroit Lions- Mike Jenkins CB South Florida
16. Arizona Cardinals- Quentin Groves OLB Auburn
17. Minnesota Vikings- Jeff Otah OT Pittsburgh
18. Houston Texans- Chris Williams OT Vanderbilt
19. Philadelphia Eagles- Phillip Merling DE Clemson
20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Kentwan Balmer DT North Carolina
21. Washington Redskins- Malcolm Kelly WR Oklahoma
22. Dallas Cowboys- Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie CB Tennessee State
23. Pittsburgh Steelers- Brandon Albert OG Virginia
24. Tennessee Titans- Limas Sweed WR Texas
25. Denver Broncos (f/SEA)- Kenny Phillips S Miami
26. Jacksonville Jaguars- Trevor Laws DT Notre Dame
27. San Diego Chargers- Carl Nicks OT Nebraska
28. Dallas Cowboys- Felix Jones RB Arkansas
29. San Francisco 49ers- Desean Jackson WR Cal
30. Green Bay Packers- Patrick Lee CB Auburn
31. New England Patriots- Cody Mahan OG Baylor
32. New York Giants- Reggie Smith DB Oklahoma

I'll add some more comments later. Some of the later picks were bugging me but it turned out decently well.

A Perfect Score

fantastic for the ravens, would much rather have him then anyone else in the draft...perfect, finally someone intelligent gives us a good pick. Bout damn time

Rodgers and Lynch_07
02-29-2008, 06:47 PM
I don't understand the Pack's pick with Cason and Porter available.

02-29-2008, 06:47 PM
great Rams selection

02-29-2008, 06:55 PM
I want Chris Williams instead of Otah. Williams seems like a better pass-blocker.

02-29-2008, 07:40 PM
i think chris williams is higher up on the bears draft board than is mendenhall. mendenhall is probably the backup choice though so not bad...

02-29-2008, 07:48 PM
y would the pats deal with the bills first round picks when they are within their own division? it doesnt make sense......

02-29-2008, 07:59 PM

Yea cause the Eagles didnt trade their first rounder to the cowboys last year.

02-29-2008, 08:17 PM
PERFECT Chiefs draft

02-29-2008, 08:21 PM
Reggie Smith = Da Bomb.

The Cowboys getting DRC = ****!

02-29-2008, 09:48 PM
DRC is a cowboy if he is there, cross out philly, washington is a thought, before then mckelvin, jenkins, and talib will all go higher, if we keep our picks i think he's a lock to go there.

02-29-2008, 10:25 PM
would rather see them draft reggie here.

02-29-2008, 11:12 PM
I like that pick for Buffalo, considering our only DTs on the roster are...

-John McCargo
-Kyle Williams
-Jason Jefferson http://boards.buffalobills.com/images/smilies/blink.gif http://boards.buffalobills.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

ewww jake long?

build the lines outwards. I did hear that about ireland too but I am hoping it is just hype to make atlanta pay

02-29-2008, 11:39 PM
Perfect Chiefs selection.

Okay Ravens & Texans picks.

03-01-2008, 08:34 AM
perfect giants pick

03-01-2008, 08:48 AM
Ugg if we took Kelly over DRC, Sweed or Albert, I'd cry.

03-01-2008, 09:38 AM
Im sorry but I really dont understand this Cody Mahan joke. Go ahead, call me ignorant, but please let me know wtf that means.

03-01-2008, 11:49 AM
bad miami pick, if we take any qb in the draft, it will be Flacco in the 2nd, not Ryan with the 1st.

03-01-2008, 11:54 AM
And why is that? Because you don't like Ryan?

03-01-2008, 12:02 PM
If the Broncos were able to pull off that sort of trade I'd be really happy. Phillips is a reach at #12 but worth it at #25. I really hope they can trade back for defense on draft day cause the value is terrible at #12.

03-01-2008, 01:05 PM
Jenkins is a solid Lions pick

03-01-2008, 03:50 PM
I am not the biggest fan of Patrick Lee. Yes he is a physical corner and that fits into the Packers scheme but I am hesitant about his footwork and adjusting to the NFL game. He's a bit of project and the Packers can afford to work with a player but he's not worth the 30th pick and don't think he's worth the risk.

03-01-2008, 04:11 PM
I understand the WR pick, but I don't understand Kelly over Sweed.

03-01-2008, 04:59 PM
And why is that? Because you don't like Ryan?

No, because everything I've heard about Flacco is that Parcells is enamored with him. I haven't heard ANYTHING about Ryan. The only people projecting Ryan to us now are McShay and Kiper on ESPN, and I don't trust ESPN at all when it comes to the draft anymore.

03-01-2008, 05:17 PM
Average Pats pick, and our #31 is forfeited.

03-01-2008, 06:13 PM
I understand the WR pick, but I don't understand Kelly over Sweed.

Funny how no one would of questioned this a month ago.

A new Bills pick will be needed now, lol, there goes that trade.

03-01-2008, 10:33 PM
Funny how no one would of questioned this a month ago.

I've never really been a fan of Malcolm Kelly.

03-02-2008, 12:00 AM
After cutting Barry Sims, I'd be surprised if Oakland passes on Jake Long. I wouldn't rule it out, as it wouldn't shock me if their draft plan is to fill the hole in the second round and use the first on a flashier player (like Gholston or McFadden), but if Long does fall to the 4th pick it wouldn't exactly be uncharacteristic of Al Davis to pick him.

Personally, I like the idea of a Long/Gallery left side.

03-02-2008, 05:11 AM
I want Chris Williams instead of Otah. Williams seems like a better pass-blocker.

Agree! I would not mind to see Williams in Twin City. Also better fit for the Zone blocking

I would too

Perfect Giants pick with Gibril Gone :(
