View Full Version : Revised four round mock with explanations

03-10-2010, 02:03 PM
Round 1
St. Louis (1-15) - Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame
Rams have 2 top ten picks on the d-line but no franchise QB. I think it's OT, QB or trade down. But who wants to trade up?
Detroit (2-14) - Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska
Lions could go OT to protect their young QB but Suh is too good to pass up.
Tampa Bay (3-13) - Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma
Again could go OT for the young QB but McCoy is a play maker on defense that the Bucs haven't had in a long time.
Washington (4-12) - Russell Okung, Oklahoma State
With Samuels retiring Mike gets a future LT for the next decade.
Kansas City (4-12) - Bruce Campbell, Maryland
Chiefs have to keep their QB upright and they seem to have a good young RB that could use so holes to run through.
Seattle (5-11) - Sam Bradford, Oklahoma
Seattle should be rebuilding this year. You don't get a shot at a QB like this at #7 very often.
Cleveland (5-11) - Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
A stud DB to help that under achieving secondary.
Oakland (5-11) - Jason Pierre-Paul, South Florida
If Al Davis sees that video of this kid back flipping he'll trade up for him. And this takes some pressure off Seymour.
Buffalo (6-10) - Trent Williams, Oklahoma
The Bills need to keep their QB upright. Williams is a stud LT.
Jacksonville (7-9) - Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State
The Jags get a playmaker receiver. Big, strong, fast and way better than anything on the roster.
Denver - from Chicago (7-9) - Rolando McClain, Alabama
Such a great value and in the 3-4 you need athletic LB's.
Miami (7-9) - Dan Williams, Tennessee
Starts at DT from day one for the Phins.
San Francisco (8-8) - Joe Haden, Florida
CB might not be a huge need but with Clements and Haden teams would be hard pressed to pass.
Seattle - from Denver (8-8) - C.J. Spiller, Clemson
Again they are rebuilding. This is a need and fits well with the system.
New York Giants (8-8) - Sean Weatherspoon, Missouri
Giants could use an athletic LB who can make plays.
Tennessee (8-8) - Brandon Graham, Michigan
An instant pass rush nightmare for Manning.
San Francisco - from Carolina (8-8) - Bryan Bulaga, Iowa
9ers get a stud LT.
Pittsburgh (9-7) - Anthony Davis, Rutgers
Big Ben might stay upright this year.
Atlanta (9-7) - Carlos Dunlap, Florida
Freak athlete. Can the Falcons keep him motivated?
Houston (9-7) - Ryan Mathews, Fresno State
Houston has yet to have a quality NFL RB. This stops with this pick.
Cincinnati* (10-6) - Earl Thomas, FS, Texas
Bengals get a ball hawk safety.
New England* (10-6) - Jerry Hughes, TCU
Instant upgrade at OLB. The Pats are old. They need to get young fast if they want to compete.
Green Bay* (11-5) - Charles Brown, USC
Rodgers ran for his life last year. CLifton is old as dirt. A need.
Philadelphia* (11-5) - Everson Griffen, USC
Stud DE for the Eagles.
Baltimore* (9-7) - Sergio Kindle, Texas
Perfect fit for the Ravens.
Arizona* (10-6) - Tim Tebow, Florida
Is Leinart the guy. Well this will push him to be. Tebow is a winner and fits with that high powered offense.
Dallas* (11-5) - Taylor Mays, USC
Freak of nature. Al Davis might trade up for him. But fills a need and is an upgrade.
San Diego* (13-3) - Jahvid Best, California
No LT no problem.
New York Jets* (9-7) - Golden Tate, Notre Dame
Gives Sanchez a nice target. This is Hines Ward with speed.
Minnesota* (12-4) - Brian Price, UCLA
Pat Williams is old as dirt and is in the last year of his contract.
Indianapolis* (14-2) - Kareem Jackson, Alabama
Jackson fits right in the Colts system and fills a need.
New Orleans* (13-3) Brandon Ghee, Wake Forest
An upgrade in the secondary.

Round 2
St. Louis (1-15) - Mike Iupati, Idaho
Some say he can play OT. I think he's a guard. Maybe RT. But definately a good deal.
Detroit (2-14) - Devin McCourty, Rutgers
Could go many different directions. But fills a need and is a good value.
Tampa Bay (3-13) - Arrelious Benn, Illinois
Bucs give their young QB a target to throw too.
Kansas City (4-12) - Jermaine Gresham, Oklahoma
With the loss of Gonzalez the Chiefs lost that safety valve in the middle of the field.
Washington (4-12) - Jared Odrick, Penn State
Great value and can play the 3-4 or 4-3.
Cleveland (5-11) - Montario Hardesty, Tennessee
Harrison is exciting but can he take the pounding of an every down back?
Oakland (5-11) - Jacoby Ford, Clemson
COme on he ran a 4.28 we all know where he is going.
Seattle (5-11) - Damian Williams, USC
QB, RB and now receiver. All great values. This would be a dream for any team wanting to rebuild.
Buffalo (6-10) - Toby Gerhart, Stanford
A hard nosed football player. Instant upgrade at the RB position.
Tampa Bay - from Chicago (7-9) - Daryl Washington, TCU
Tamp hasn't had a stud backer like this since Brooks.
Miami (7-9) - Dorin Dickerson, Pittsburgh
Freak of nature. Either going to play WR or TE. Figure it out once you get him in camp.
New England - from Jacksonville (7-9) - Brandon LaFell, LSU
With Moss gone after this year and Welker probably out this year a need.
Denver (8-8) - Terrence Cody, Alabama
A huge man to plug up the middle of that d-line.
New York Giants (8-8) - Vladimir Ducasse, UMass
A stud guard and great value.
New England - from Tennessee (8-8) - Aaron Hernandez, Florida
What kind of draft would it be with the Pats not taking a TE.
Carolina (8-8) - Jevan Snead, Ole Miss
Delomne is gone and the Panthers need a signal caller.
San Francisco (8-8) - Dan LeFevour, Central Michigan
LeFevour is a great athlete and has been a stud in College. Might need time to develop though.
Kansas City - from Atlanta (9-7) - Nate Allen, South Florida
Ball hawk Safety for the Chiefs.
Houston (9-7) - Chris Cook, Virginia
Fills the hole from Robinson leaving.
Pittsburgh (9-7) - Brandon Spikes, Florida
Farrior is old. Spikes is a thumper who would instantly upgrade the ILB position.
New England* (10-6) - Lamarr Houston, Texas
Fills the hole Seymour left.
Cincinnati* (10-6) - Jamar Chaney, Mississippi State
Jones is old as dirt and Chaney is a freak of nature. Perfect replacement.
Philadelphia* (11-5) - Dexter McCluster, Ole Miss
Small RB with great hands. Sound familiar?
Green Bay* (11-5) - Alex Carrington, Arkansas State
Perfect 3-4 DE.
Baltimore* (9-7) - Reshad Jones, Georgia
Hard nosed safety and insurance with Reed speaking of retirement.
Arizona* (10-6) - Darrell Stuckey, Kansas
I know they traded for Rhodes but Stuckey is too good of a value.
Dallas* (11-5) - Carlton Mitchell, South Florida
Roy Williams has not lived up to expectations.
San Diego* (13-3) - Rob Gronkowski, Arizona
Gates isn't getting any younger.
New York Jets* (9-7) - Chad Jones, LSU
With Rhodes leaving Jones would fill a need.
Minnesota* (12-4) - John Skelton, Fordham
Whether Favre comes back or not the Vikes need a future QB. Skelton is a freak and would be nice to groom for a year or two.
Indianapolis* (14-2) - Morgan Burnett, Georgia Tech
Again fixes that secondary.
New Orleans* (13-3) - Maurkice Pouncey, Florida
A steal at the end of the second round.

decent skins draft. odrick isnt a great need in the 2nd but the value is good. i dont think pike fits well into shannys offense.

03-10-2010, 02:14 PM
Although this format is a ***** to read, absolutely love the Eric Berry pick.
Montario Hardesty is good, but Vladimir Ducasse would be better in round 2.
Koa Misi isn't bad, but Ricky Sapp would be better in round 3 and John Jerry is a great pick
Love Anthony McCoy in round 4

03-10-2010, 02:27 PM
This is the shittiest prepared draft I have ever seen as far as how easy it is to read. Hate the Vikes mock. Skelton is a HUGE reach in the second, Brian Price is a UT, and the Vikes already have the best UT in the league.

03-10-2010, 02:31 PM
dont mind the second round for the patriots. but, hughes is way undersized to play OLB in our system. As much as i like hughes, i dont really see it

03-10-2010, 03:21 PM
Cincinnati* (10-6) - Earl Thomas, FS, Texas
This pick saved your draft from failing hard.
No way is MLB a first 3-4 round need. Rey Maualuga is the MLB of the future.
Asamoah is an alright pick. Would much rather have John Jerry as Bobbie Williams future replacement there.

Taylor Price is a bad pick we need a solid guy who will be ready to be a true #1 guy. Ocho is 30 years old.

03-10-2010, 03:28 PM
Still not a very good KC draft. Bruce Campbell 5th overall is just flat out bad, from top to bottom. The rest of the picks aren't much better.

03-10-2010, 03:32 PM
That is the worst mock draft for the Chiefs I have ever seen.

03-10-2010, 03:33 PM
Tough to read, and you didn't change any Bengals picks, meaning my opinion stays the same: 1st and 4th great, 2nd and 3rd terrible.

03-10-2010, 03:43 PM
No sister bangers to Chicago please.

03-10-2010, 03:53 PM
the enter key is your friend, good giants draft

03-10-2010, 04:14 PM
Wow. Terrible Cardinals draft, just terrible.

Arizona* (10-6) - Tim Tebow, Florida
Is Leinart the guy. Well this will push him to be. Tebow is a winner and fits with that high powered offense

Ugh for taking Tebow in the first. Ugh for us taking a QB in the first half of the draft at all. Ugh.

Arizona* (10-6) - Darrell Stuckey, Kansas
I know they traded for Rhodes but Stuckey is too good of a value.

As you said Rhodes. Plus Wilson. Plus just resigned Ware. Plus last years third round pick Johnson. Is he really that good of a value in the second as well?

Arizona* (9-7) - Jordan Shipley, Texas

Even after trading Boldin we have three good WRs. I don't mind Shipley but it's been 3 picks and none of them have filled an actual need.

Arizona* (10-6) - Pat Angerer, Iowa

Ok pick as we need help at inside linebacker. Think it is a reach though, undersized linebackers with slow 40 times tend to fall.

New York Jets* (9-7) - Jay Ross, East Carolina

We have the Ravens 4th round pick.

03-10-2010, 04:16 PM
I'm good with that first round for the 49ers. Dont like taking a QB in the 2nd. Why Fox in the 3rd??? If we have Staley and Bulaga as our OTs?

03-10-2010, 04:31 PM
Pass....thanks for the effort. But I'd be unhappy with this...

03-10-2010, 04:59 PM
Had to do a ctrl+f search to find the Raider picks. Yeesh.

I'm trying to accept the JPP pick as likely.

The Jacoby Ford pick is just silly, though. Al just drafted two WRs, and the one with the huge salary is running #3 on the depth chart at best. Chaz Schilens is only entering his 3rd season. Youth at WR is not the issue, and Al drafts for need no matter what some knuckleheads think.

Not a fan of Dakota Watson for the Raiders, but it's possible. Makes no sense to replace LBs who can't shed blocks with a LB who can't shed blocks.

The other two picks would be great.

03-10-2010, 06:04 PM
corner did not become a need all of a sudden a need for the saints since your last mock

03-10-2010, 06:08 PM
Decent Miami draft.

But the way it fell, I would prefer to wait on NT until the 2nd and grab Terrence Cody. So in the first, Earl Thomas would be better. And since we have no need for a RB, we can get a TE in the 4th. So I would take Jimmy Graham there.

Therefore, my perfect draft in that scenario would be:

1. Earl Thomas
2. Terrence Cody
3. Ricky Sapp (loved this pick, great value!)
4. Jimmy Graham

03-10-2010, 06:21 PM
If the Chargers draft a TE in the 2nd I will...that could not possibly happen. Teams have needs.

03-10-2010, 06:31 PM
Why so much hate for Patrick Robinson? You have him falling to the 4th round for the second time.

03-10-2010, 06:37 PM
No LB for the Bucs in the first two rounds. Give us Chad Jones instead.

I could see this happening, but i don't like to pick a RB in this years draft, i would go with Ricky Sapp in the third round

I don't kow much about Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, but you HAVE to give us Robinson here.

03-10-2010, 08:21 PM
I love that Giants mock

03-11-2010, 07:16 AM
Round 1
Buffalo (6-10) - Trent Williams, Oklahoma
The Bills need to keep their QB upright. Williams is a stud LT.

Round 2
Buffalo (6-10) - Toby Gerhart, Stanford
Denver (8-8) - Terrence Cody, Alabama
Pittsburgh (9-7) - Brandon Spikes, Florida position.
Green Bay* (11-5) - Alex Carrington, Arkansas State
Minnesota* (12-4) - John Skelton, Fordham

Round 3
Buffalo (6-10) - Linval Joseph, East Carolina
Miami (7-9) - Ricky Sapp, Clemson
Carolina (8-8) - Mardy Gilyard, Cincinnati
Denver (8-8) - Corey Wootton, Northwestern
New Orleans* (13-3) - Eric Norwood, South Carolina

Round 4
Buffalo (6-10) - Greg Hardy, Ole Miss
New York Giants (8-8) - Arthur Jones, Syracuse
Pittsburgh (9-7) - Tyson Alualu, California
Philadelphia* (11-5) - Jimmy Graham, Miami

I could see Williams being the pick, not my preference but it works. Round 2 is STILL bizarre to say the least, and its not because Gerhart is a bad player... We just drafted Lynch in the first round a couple years ago, and Fred Jackson was our best offensive player, we already have two starting halfbacks, so with so many holes on this team why would they take another running back? Cody makes the most sense to me in that spot, with no nose tackle on the roster and a switch to the 3-4... Spikes and Carrington are better IMO as well, Skelton is a bit high, but you never know... I like Joseph but the other players are a better value IMO, and in the fourth Hardy I cant see, not with the history of injuries on this team, and again IMO the other players are better values. Postions are correct for the most part, but the running back in the second round makes little sense unless you know something about a Lynch trade...

03-11-2010, 09:27 AM
good Phins draft although RB isnt a 4th round need. Change that pick to an ILB or FS and you've got yourself a great draft!

03-11-2010, 01:14 PM
Good try, but not my cup of tea.

03-12-2010, 11:06 AM
Hate the Vikings mock. The only pick I even liked was the Major Wright one.

03-12-2010, 12:44 PM
The Lions are not drafting for the Saints. Thus, there is NO WAY we take Brandon Ghee!

03-12-2010, 02:09 PM
If baltimore gets Kindle i'll bust an ocean.

03-12-2010, 03:30 PM
Snead to the Panthers? thanks but no thanks, we already have Moore and Carolina is pretty content with him. Not saying Carolina will just hand him the job but i really dont think Snead will be the guy to contend with him unless hes available in the 3rd or 4th. i like Gilyard in the 3rd and i can see a DE in the 4th although idk that i want another 250 lb DE since we already have Brown and Taylor both barely above 250.
