No RB in the first for the Packers. CB/OLB/OT. I'd take Justin Houston there. Carimi or Costonzo would also be good.

I'm curious as to why Green Bay would not be looking at a RB in round 1? I realize they have Ryan Grant coming back, but their lack of diversity on offense definitely cost them a few games, and almost the playoffs this season. Why is grabbing a solid RB at the end of the 1st round not considered a decent pick?

I think Blackmon will go before Jones.

I'm not a fan of Clayborn anymore. Kid has Erbs palsy and wasn't productive as last year. He should've came out in 2009. He didn't look good at all in his bowl game, either.

Don't want Bailey either. Can get a solid LE later.

I'll take Solder, Carimi, or Ayers instead.

Good work, though.

I want a runningback, but absolutely not in the first round. A back like Noel Devine or Kendall Hunter in the 3rd or 4th round would be perfect. Mikel Leshoure, Shane Vereen, or Ryan Williams in the second would also be good. There is no reason to take a runningback in the first round. Grant, Jackson, and a midround back will be just fine. We have much bigger needs than runningback. Even if runningback was our biggest need I wouldn't take one in the first in this draft. I don't like Ingram much. If we absolutely had to pick a runningback with our first round pick I'd take Williams or Leshoure over Ingram.

lockers got a lot of work to do to get his stock back up that high. right now i think hes a borderline first rounder. obviously things could change with senior bowl/combine but at this point id prefer blackmon or robert quinn even.

Derek Sherrod is a huge reach at 9. Rather have Robert Quinn.

Thanks for the reviews guys! I wish I would have put some explanations now, because I feel like my reasoning for some of the picks might make them seem more ideal, but regardless this is just my first mock of the post-season, so I tried to get as many projected 1st rounders in as possible. After the combine, I think we'll get a better feel of how it's going to play out. I'm sorry if I didn't mock specific players to your teams, I was really just trying to fill team needs with the BPA at that time (hence the 49ers pick). If anyone has any questions on any specific pics, I'll be happy to answer them, and hopefully I'll have explanations on my next mock draft.

I'd like to hear your thoughts on Solder. He is intriguing to me and I want to know more. Obviously his physical tools are well known but how long will it take him to transition to the NFL? If he needs 2+ years to grow as a player and become effective I would rather take someone like Carimi for the Colts, who I think has a lower overall ceiling but a potentially much higher floor and might be ready to start from day one.

I actually think it's quite the opposite for Solder and Carimi. I think Solder has a lower floor, but a much higher ceiling. I also think Solder could potentially jump up as far as a top 10 draft pick, he looks like he'll blow up the combine, and he seems to be getting more hype as each day passes.

But honestly, I spent a lot of time on this pick, and the only reason I chose Solder was because I feel like he's going to have more hype going into the draft, but I could honestly see the same thing happening for any of the top tackles. As of right now, it's really hard to tell exactly who is going to jump out as the top tackle and with Tyrod Smith entering the draft, it should make things a little more interesting.

As a Vikings fan, I would murder baby seals if this happened.
