View Full Version : TimDris' 3/12 Top 10 Mock

03-12-2008, 04:36 PM
Just a top 10 right now. I'll have a complete new one in a week or so.

New York Jets send #6 to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for #13 and #43.

1. Miami Dolphins – Chris Long DE Virginia
Chris Long is still the man even after Gholston's pro day. Long will be the versatile defensive stud that Parcells loves.


2. St. Louis Rams – Vernon Gholston DE/OLB Ohio State
After his impressive pro day the Rams will use a first to upgrade their DL yet again. He fits perfectly into the 4-3/3-4 Hybrid D that the Rams run. Him and Carriker will make a big impact next year.


3. Atlanta Falcons – Matt Ryan QB Boston College
They are improving the team with some good signings, especially Turner, now they need a new leader and face of the franchise.


4. Oakland Raiders – Glenn Dorsey DT Louisiana State
This pick is between Dorsey and McFadden, but they end up taking Dorsey instead. Al Davis loves the disruptive force in the middle.


5. Kansas City Chiefs – Jake Long OT Michigan
The Chiefs begin to rebuild the way you're supposed to, in the trenches. This pick will help solidify their O-line for years to come.


6. Carolina Panthers – Darren McFadden RB Arkansas
It is no secret that the Jets and Panthers like to trade picks with each other (look at last year and Jenkins this year). Fox realizes he needs to get a big playmaker in the offense to help out Delhomme. They give up their 2nd pick for him, but they have two 3rds so it is a good deal.


7. New England Patriots (from San Francisco 49ers) – Keith Rivers LB Southern California
There are no top 10 corners left that fit their defense so they add youth and talent to their defense with Rivers. Versatile LB who can make a big impact.


8. Baltimore Ravens – Leodis McKelvin CB Troy
They start to upgrade their aging D with this big playmaker at corner. After last season in which injuries to corner cost them they make sure to add depth.


9. Cincinnati Bengals – Sedrick Ellis DT Southern California
They lost out on Rogers and Robertson but they are able to take Ellis to improve their defense.


10. New Orleans Saints – Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie CB Tennessee State
After obtaining Vilma they can begin to concentrate on other parts of their defense and they do so adding D.R.C., a big playmaker. He will provide depth and a spark to their secondary.



Feedback always welcome.

Looking good so far! And excellent Chiefs pick. I hope the top five work out like that.

03-12-2008, 04:43 PM
Great Phins pick!

03-12-2008, 07:22 PM
decent patriots pick

03-12-2008, 07:45 PM
If that is how the draft went, I'd hope we go with Sweed at 11.
BTW, is that Rey Maualuga in the sig at pick #7?

03-12-2008, 07:57 PM
Pretty solid, but I don't think that Rivers will be gone that soon.

Good Baltimore pick.

03-12-2008, 08:17 PM
i like it so far especially the format.

good catch.

I don't think that the Panthers would trade up to get McFadden...they have Williams who they haven't passed the reigns to yet...plus, they have greater issues than RB...

03-12-2008, 09:05 PM
Everything except the Carolina pick seems okay.

03-12-2008, 09:12 PM
If Gholston's off the board Jake Long or Darren McFadden are probably more likely picks for the Raiders.

Why would Oakland take Dorsey?Kelly and Dorsey are both UTs.Give us Long.

Wasn't Kelly a DE too or something like that?

on behalf of LJ and Brodie they want me to say you rule

03-12-2008, 10:16 PM
Ehh, not big on the Panthers trade and pick. We have much bigger needs than a RB. Especially when both our O-line & D-line's have been shredded with a butter knife this offseason.

03-12-2008, 11:25 PM
Other than the trade i like the format and the picks..

03-13-2008, 12:04 AM
that matt ryan sig is unreal, did you make all the sigs yourself? if you did wanna make me a " I Remember Lavar Arrington " sig?

http://www.cantstopthebleeding.com/img/arrington0423.jpg is a sick pic but any pic really would do, preferably on the redskins.

If Jake Long is there for the Falcons they'll take him IMO.

Also don't agree the Panthers trading up for Mcfadden, they have much more pressing needs such as T and S. I also don't think the Jets would be willing to give up Mcfadden if he was there. The objective of trading up for a player is to jump in front a team targeting him, the Jets probably have Mcfadden near the top of their draft board so they wouldn't trade out of the spot to pick him up.

Lastly the only thing Al Davis likes is dishing out millions of dollars for mediocre players and his meds.

Ok top 10. Mine would go more like:

Dolphins - Chris Long
Rams - Golston (I like your idea of him playing in a hybrid D as he would be dominant in either but I could also see the Rams solidfying there oline with Jake Long here)
Falcons - Jake Long
Raiders - Glenn Dorsey
Chiefs - Pick traded to the Dallas Cowboys for their two firsts and a 2nd. Darren Mcfadden (Gotta have a trade in the top 10, shake things up a bit, of course no one could predict a trade but this could be a likely scenario in my opinion with Jake Long off the board, I could also see Ellis being the pick here)
Jets - Leodis Mckelvin (Not the ideal situation for the Jets here with Mcfadden, Gholston, Dorsey, and Chris Long off the board they're forced to go in another route)
Patriots - Keith Rivers
Ravens - Matt Ryan
Bengals - Sedrick Ellis
Saints - DRC

looks great, but I think the Raiders not take Dorsey. They want Kelly at 3T, so Dorsey would likely be out of position at NT. I think it would have to be McFadden in that scenario.

03-13-2008, 12:27 PM
Atlanta won't pass on Jake Long.

03-13-2008, 08:43 PM
Atlanta won't pass on Jake Long.

Yeah, Jake Long is #1 on their draft board IMO.

03-14-2008, 10:29 PM
Wasn't Kelly a DE too or something like that?

Only because Sapp was playing UT. The reason they gave him such a big contract was because he's supposed to be a major disruptive force in the middle.
