View Full Version : Rough Mock

First mock of the season. Usually like to do one after preliminary post-season looks at teams and players. Would appreciate input.

1. St. Louis :: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
As a rams fan, I would prefer Suh, but it is looking more like Bradford, after bringing in a system QB in Feeley to teach the offense and a stopgap at DT with Robbins.

2. Detroit :: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
The lions add another piece for their revamped line to place along Vanden Bosch and Williams. A weakness has turned into one of their bigger strengths.

3. Tampa Bay :: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
I don't think there is much debate about what the bucs will do if one of the top two DT's are left.

4. Washington :: Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
Washington could go Clausen but I don't think you throw a young QB behind a horrible line and with no young pieces already in place or free agents brought in, they need to add some before a QB.

5. Kansas City :: Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
Kansas City goes BPA and fills a need behind a young group of corners.

6. Seattle :: Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
Pete Carroll gets his golden-boy quarterback and this time he can legally pay him.

7. Cleveland :: CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson
Cleveland just misses out on a quarterback, so they add a playmaker alongside Josh Cribbs.

8. Oakland :: Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland
Oakland is in dire need of a left tackle and it just so happens one of this year's workout warriors fills that need.

9. Buffalo :: Brian Bulaga, OT, Iowa
The Bills need basically an entire offense. Without a QB on the board they go with the next highest priority when building an offense a LT.

10. Jacksonville :: Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
The popular pick here, Jacksonville missed last time when picking a top 10 DE, so they are back again in the same position.

11. Denver :: Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama
I think they find a way to keep Brandon Marshall, and the Broncos are still missing some pieces on defense, so they nab the best remaining defender.

12. Miami :: Jason Pierre-Paul, DE/OLB, South Florida
Miami could be tempted to go Dez Bryant here, but the WR class is deeper and I don't think he would be a good fit in a Parcells club.

13. San Francisco :: Joe Haden, CB, Florida
The biggest benefactors of Joe Haden running at the combine are the 49ers who could have been left reaching for the second best corner in the middle of the first.

14. Seattle :: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
He might not be the left tackle they are looking for but he will still be a valuable piece on that line.

15. NY Giants :: Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri
The Giants don't really have any pieces on their linebacking corp. They can place the versatile former Tiger in any of the three spots.

16. Tennessee :: Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan
Tennessee adds the most natural pass-rusher in the draft to their unproductive line.

17. San Francisco :: Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
Ideally, the 49ers probably would have liked to land Trent Williams, but they will settle for the quickly falling boom-or-bust tackle of the draft.

18. Pittsburgh :: Taylor Mays, S, USC
The first USC player off of the board can will not have to utilize his questionable instincts as the enforcer of the Pittsburgh defense backfield.

19. Atlanta :: Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB, Texas
Could Kindle succeed in the same role as his former teammate Orakpo did in Washington as a 4-3 SLB and pass rush specialist? Atlanta takes a chance.

20. Houston :: Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
Houston is faced with a tough decision between Bryant, Thomas, and Wilson. All three have value and fill a need. Ultimately they add a complement to AJ.

21. Cincinnati :: Earl Thomas, S, Texas
Cincinnati gets an upgrade in their secondary, not that the best young corner pairing in the league really need help (see success with Roy Williams behind them).

22. New England :: Everson Griffin, DE/OLB, USC
The Patriots could use another pass rusher. They hope to tap into the potential of this Trojan to replace the disgruntled Adalius Thomas.

23. Green Bay :: Mike Iupati, OL, Idaho
Green Bay has one hole on their team and that is their offensive line. (if you ignore the defensive implosion against the Cards) Iupati probably could use some teaching before getting a starting role, he can get that on GB's OL rotation.

24. Philadelphia :: Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
Supposedly a strength, Philly's corners did not look too good last year. Without an OL or top 3 safety left, they make the easy pick.

25. Baltimore :: Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers
Baltimore added Boldin which lowers the probability of drafting a WR. Their next biggest need CB to replace the penalty prone Frank Walker.

26. Arizona :: Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
Arguably a top 15 last year, Gresham falls some but is still a first round prospect giving Matt Leinart a big target in likely his only year left to prove himself.

27. Dallas :: Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame
Roy Williams has been a bust in Dallas and Patrick Crayton has never stepped up, they finally draft a viable option in the first round.

28. San Diego :: Ryan Mathews, RB, Fresno State
San Diego cut LT, kept Sproles. I can't see a Super Bowl caliber team risk losing a feature back by waiting until the second to pick one.

29. NY Jets :: Arrelious Benn, WR, Illinois
The Jets could very well go DL with this pick, but I think they build a young offensive core with a number one WR.

30. Minnesota :: Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee
Pat Williams wavered in his returned. They resigned Jimmy Kennedy but he isn't a NT.

31. Indianapolis :: Jared Odrick, DT, Penn State
The high-motor DT could finally fill the DT spot for the Colts.

32. New Orleans :: Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida
The Super Bowl champions could be destroyed by free agency. They use this pick to improve on a solid yet unspectacular piece on their line.

Round Two

1. St. Louis :: Brian Price, DT, UCLA

2. Detroit :: Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama

3. Tampa Bay :: Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida

4. Kansas City :: Vlad Ducasse, OL, UMass

5. Washington :: Jahvid Best, RB, California

6. Oakland :: Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama

7. Cleveland :: Jerry Hughes, OLB, TCU

8. Seattle :: Demaryus Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech

9. Buffalo :: Tim Tebow, QB, Florida

10. Miami :: Brandon LaFell, WR, LSU

11. New England :: Montario Hardesty, RB, Tennessee

12. Tampa Bay :: Mardy Gilyard, WR, Cincinnati

13. New England :: Rob Gronkowski, TE, Arizona

14. Carolina :: Damian Williams, USC

15. NY Giants :: Chad Jones, LSU

16. Denver :: Corey Wootton, DE, Northwestern

17. San Francisco :: Koa Misi, OLB, Utah

18. Houston :: Perrish Cox, CB, Oklahoma State

19. Kansas City :: Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford

20. Pittsburgh :: Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech

21. Cincinnati :: Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida

22. New England :: Geno Atkins, DE/DT, Georgia

23. Green Bay :: Nate Allen, S, South Florida

24. Philadelphia :: Daryl Washington, LB, TCU

25. Baltimore :: Brandon Spikes, ILB, Florida

26. Arizona :: Eric Norwood, LB, South Carolina

27. Dallas :: Tyson Alualu, DT/DE, California

28. San Diego :: Thaddeus Gibson, OLB, Ohio State

29. NY Jets :: Ricky Sapp, DE/OLB, Clemson

30. Minnesota :: Patrick Robinson, CB, Florida State

31. Indianapolis :: Morgan Burnett, S, Georgia Tech

32. New Orleans :: Navorro Bowman, OLB, Penn State

I saw that we passed on Dez Bryant and thought it couldn't get any worse. But it did. LaFell sucks. That is all.

Thomas is a nice pick

Hernandez is a horriable pick has the same skill set as Coffman. We need a all around TE

At that point with no All around TE and WR worth that pick i would go Alualu

Both Saints picks are off! Dunlap or Hughes would be the pick in the first based on your scenario.

Just as an FYI any mock that doesn't have the giants picking a DT in the first two rounds is going to be awful for the giants. We actually have some talent at LB, Boley's a stud when healthy, Goff looked like he was good and solid and Sintim has a lot of raw talent. I completely agree that we could use a LB, I love Daryl Washington if he falls to our pick in round 2, but we need a DT more. Canty faced a lot of injuries last year and our only other DT worth a ****, JAy Alford, is coming of knee surgery so who knows when he'll be fully recovered.

too bad in Atlanta our SLB has to actually cover players. Kindle would be a horrible fit for hte scheme and his character doesn't fit with T.D's history in the draft. Atlanta has not drafted anyone with any sort of arrest or character issue in the draft since TD got here.

I'm sorry, but our next biggest need after WR is definitely not CB. It is far and away an interior pass-rusher, whether it is a 3-4 DE or a 4-3 UT. After that TE would probably be a bigger need than CB, where we have no depth behind Heap who isn't going to be effective (if he even is now) for much longer. We have two starting corners, Foxworth and Webb (who was our best defensive back when starting last season). Frank Walker is nothing but a 4th or 5th corner on our team, and he only played due to extensive injuries last season. I hate how people get the idea in their heads that Frank Walker and/or Chris Carr are starting corners on our team.

Thanks for the comments so far, especially with the team needs and scheme fitting.

Good first round pick with Spoon, but no need for a S in round 2

A few questions.

Is there a better fit for pass rusher in Atlanta? The best pure DE left has even more character issues than Kindle and I don't really think Jerry Hughes or Everson Griffin can be successful 3-down DE's in a 4-3. So do they go Earl Thomas in this situation?

I'll admit I made most of my Ravens judgment post-secondary injury, as that is all I really saw of them. Though in this situation, do you think it would be Gresham or Odrick in the first?

Sorry for the long angry post lol. McCourty really isn't that bad of a pick, and it's one that I could definitely see happening, but Gresham would be the better value/need. Also depends on what defensive linemen are left, but I would definitely go Gresham over Odrick.

Earl Thomas? do you even know anything about atlanta's schemes or needs? S isn't a need at all in this draft either. Atlanta's needs are DE, OLB and then a huge gap and then it's OT, C, WR and TE. no need for a S in any way shape or form with Decoud and Moore. Graham, Morgan or Weatherspoon are ideal, but Jerry Hughes is the next best fit. he fills the LDE role for us perfectly.

Your picks are off as well, Brian Price would be an amazing pick for us at 32. I would love if he fell. 2nd pick I can live with.

Coorey Wooten over Carlos Dunlap for the bucs.
