Round 1
1. Carolina Panthers: A.J. Green WR Georgia – The Panthers try to trade down, but that’s hard to do with the #1 pick. It comes down to Fairley or Green and they decide to get Jimmy Clausen a true #1 receiver. Green is the best receiver prospect since Calvin Johnson.
2. Denver Broncos: Patrick Peterson CB LSU – Once again it is between Fairley or Peterson and the Broncos decide to replace Champ Bailey with the best corner prospect in the draft. Patrick Peterson should develop into a Champ Bailey type player.
3. Buffalo Bills: Nick Fairley DT Auburn – Fairley can play DT or DE depending on the scheme which is perfect for Buffalo because they aren’t sure what they are going to run. Either way Fairley dominated all season long and has solidified his top 3 draft status.
4. Cincinnati Bengals: Da’Quan Bowers DE Clemson – The Bengals take a high potential defensive end to help Carlos Dunlap put pressure on opposing QB’s. This should really help their defensive line and secondary.
5. Arizona Cardinals: Robert Quinn OLB UNC – Quinn is still a top 5 prospect despite missing the entire season. That just shows how good he is. He gives the Cardinals a legit pass rusher in their 3-4 defense.
6. Cleveland Browns: Julio Jones WR Alabama – The Browns need to add a #1 receiver. Julio Jones has everything needed to be exactly that. At 6’4 220 Jones has good downfield speed, good leaping ability, can make all the catches, and has the ego of a number 1 receiver.
7. Houston Texans: Prince Amukamara CB Nebraska – TRADE: SF gets 1(11), 3(9) HOU gets: 1(7). The Texans trade up to get a true lockdown corner. Amukamara has the size, speed and technique to handle any NFL receiver, which will help in the AFC South.
8. Tennessee Titans: Blaine Gabbert QB Missouri – The Titans are getting rid of Vince Young and need to find a new franchise QB. Gabbert is flying up draft boards right now and picking a QB will help secure Jeff Fischer’s job even longer.
9. Dallas Cowboys: Marcel Dareus DE Alabama – Dareus is a great value here, especially for a 3-4 team like the Cowboys. Adding Dareus up front will only make DeMarcus Ware that much better.
10. Washington Redskins: Jake Locker QB Washington – The Donovan McNabb experiment didn’t work, but the Redskins do have a high pick that could be used on a QB. Locker is very simlar to Jay Cutler and can learn the offense for a year like Cutler did in Denver for Mike Shanahan.
11. San Francisco 49ers: Von Miller OLB Texas A&M - TRADE: SF gets 1(11), 3(9) HOU gets: 1(7). The Niners trade down and acquire more picks because they don’t feel there is a QB worth taking at 7. Instead they grab perhaps the best 3-4 OLB in the draft in Von Miller, who fills another big hole for this defense.
12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Aldon Smith DE Missouri – TRADE MIN gets: 1(20), 2(19) TBB gets: 1(12), 5(8 ), 7(13). Tampa moves up to fill their team’s biggest hole. Adding a pure pass rusher like Aldon Smith to the young tackles they drafted last year will make this defense much better and will improve the secondary. Meanwhile Minnesota adds more picks after seeing Locker go just ahead of them.
13. Detroit Lions: Akeem Ayers OLB UCLA – With no corners worth taking this high, the Lions fill another huge hole. Ayers is a versatile linebacker that will be a huge upgrade in Detroit.
14. St. Louis Rams: Stephen Paea DT Oregon State – The Rams don’t have a big tackle that can stuff the run and with no receivers worth taking here they decide to add one. Paea will really help Chris Long on and the defensive front of the Rams.
15. Miami Dolphins: Cam Newton QB Auburn – With Chad Henne falling out of favor in Miami, the Dolphins add a new franchise quarterback. Newton can learn the offense for a year or 2 while Henne and Pennington lead the Dolphins in the meantime.
16. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ryan Kerrigan DE Purdue – Kerrigan is the best defensive end on the board and will fit nicely with Aaron Kampman and Tyson Alualu in Jacksonville.
17. New England Patriots: JJ Watt DE Wisconsin – Watt has a great motor and fits the Patriots 3-4 scheme. He is a good value here that should have a nice impact right away for the Patriots.
18. San Diego Chargers: Tyron Smith OT USC – Smith is flying up draft boards and could go even higher than this. He is strong for his size and is very athletic and should be a good right tackle for the Chargers.
19. New York Giants: Mark Ingram RB Alabama – Ingram gives the Giants a powerful runner that can carry the load in the NFC East. He compliments Ahmad Bradshaw very well and allows them to move on from Brandon Jacobs.
20. Minnesota Vikings: Mike Pouncey C/OG Florida - TRADE MIN gets: 1(20), 2(19) TBB gets: 1(12), 5(8 ), 7(13). The Vikings move down after missing out on Locker and fill a huge hole on the offensive line. Despite having Loadholt, McKinnie, and Hutchinson up front the Vikings still couldn’t open holes for Adrian Peterson. Pouncey should help.
21. New England Patriots: Anthony Castonzo OT Boston College – TRADE NEP gets: 1(21) KCC gets: 2(1), 2(32). With no receivers or nose tackles worth taking here, the Chiefs decide to move down a bit and acquire a couple 2nd round picks. Meanwhile the Patriots move in front of the Colts to get their hometown left tackle to protect Tom Brady.
22. Indianapolis Colts: Nate Solder OT Colorado – Solder has the most potential of any tackle in round 1 to stay at left tackle. Protecting Peyton Manning is priority #1 and the Colts address it early.
23. Philadelphia Eagles: Gabe Carimi OT Wisconsin – The Eagles really need to improve their offensive line. Adding a right tackle like Carimi in round 1 should go a long way in doing so.
24. New Orleans Saints: Adrian Clayborn DE Iowa – Clayborn has a ton of upside and is worth a gamble at the end of round 1 for a team like the Saints. He has proven he can get to the quarterback against NFL caliber lineman like Carimi and if he can be more consistent, he will be a stud in New Orleans.
25. Seattle Seahawks: Jimmy Smith CB Colorado – Smith will become a 1st round prospect by draft day and the Seahawks need a big physical corner that can deal with the Fitzgerald’s and Crabtree’s of the NFC West.
26. New York Jets: Cameron Heyward DE Ohio State – Heyward saved his draft stock with a great performance at the Sugar Bowl. He is a great fit for a 5 technique defensive end for a team like the Jets.
27. Baltimore Ravens: Brandon Harris CB Miami – The Ravens have needed a good young corner since Chris McCalister and Samari Rolle left. They finally address the nee din round one with a good all around corner in Harris.
28. Arizona Cardinals: Ryan Mallett QB Arkansas – TRADE ARI gets: 1(28 ), 3(28 ) ATL gets: 2(6), 3(5). The Falcons don’t see anyone they are in love with here, so they slide down into round 2 and move way up in round 3. Meanwhile the Cardinals get their QB of the future. I expect them to sign Donovan McNabb this offseason, so Mallett can learn for a year.
29. Chicago Bears: Derek Sherrod OT Mississippi State – Sherrod can play lef tor right tackle for the Bears, wherever they feel Chris Williams should play, Sherrod will play opposite.
30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Cameron Jordan DE California – Jordan is a great value at the end of round 1 and is a very good fit for the Steelers aging, but still good defensive line.
31. Green Bay Packers: Mikel Leshoure RB Illinois – Ryan Grant is getting older and is coming off a bad injury, and James Starks is best served playing 3rd down back. So the Packers add Leshoure who had a huge year and can do it all at the runningback spot.
32. New England Patriots: Stefen Wisniewski C/OG Penn State – The Patriots upgrade their offensive line again, this time with the best center in the draft. Wisniewski could move to guard as well.

Round 2
1. Kansas City Chiefs: Jonathan Baldwin WR Pittsburgh - TRADE NEP gets: 1(21) KCC gets: 2(1), 2(32). The Chiefs move down and add more picks, and still get the guy they were looking at, at 21. Baldwin is a big receiver that can be the #2 in KC.
2. Tennessee Titans: Allen Bailey DT Miami – TRADE TEN gets: 2(2), 6(4) BUF gets: 2(7), 4(11). Tennessee moves up to get a great value for their 4-3 defense in round 2. Bailey is a 1st round talent that will go great with their young defensive ends.
3. Cincinnati Bengals: Robert Sands SS West Virginia – With Reggie Nelson on the roster at FS, the Bengals add Robert Sands to play SS in round 2.
4. Denver Broncos: Corey Luiget DT Illinois – Luiget can play tackle or end depending on what scheme John Fox decides to run in Denver.
5. Cleveland Browns: Benjamin Ijalana OT Villanova – The Browns add Ijalana to play right tackle and to make the best offensive line in football.
6. Atlanta Falcons: Justin Houston DE Georgia - TRADE ARI gets: 1(28 ), 3(28 ) ATL gets: 2(6), 3(5). Atlanta moves up in round 3 and gets the guy they were looking at in round 1. Houston is a very good pass rusher that is a fan favorite in Georgia and fills a big need.
7. Buffalo Bills: Pat Devlin QB Delaware - TRADE TEN gets: 2(2), 6(4) BUF gets: 2(7), 4(11). Buffalo turns their 6th into a 4th rounder, and gets their QB of the future. Devlin can learn from Ryan Fitzpatrick for a year before taking over.
8. Dallas Cowboys: Aaron Williams CB Texas – The Cowboys secondary was pitiful last season and they add a good fluid corner to help prevent getting beat over the top. Williams is a hometown guy that will get the job done in Dallas.
9. Washington Redskins: Leonard Hankerson WR Miami – Hankerson is a big receiver that will compliment Santana Moss, and Anthony Armstrong nicely in D.C.
10. Houston Texans: Phil Taylor NT Baylor – Taylor is a huge nose tackle that can anchor this new 3-4 and allow the pass rushers to make plays.
11. Minnesota Vikings: Rahim Moore FS UCLA – After going offensive line in round 1, the Vikings address their secondary in round 2 with a ball hawking free safety.
12. San Diego Chargers: Martez Wilson ILB Illinois – TRADE SDC gets: 2(12), 4(11) DET gets: 2(18 ), 3(25). San Diego upgrades their front seven with the best inside linebacker in the draft, while Detroit turns their 4th rounder into a 3rd rounder.
13. Denver Broncos: Jerrell Powe NT Ole Miss – TRADE DEN gets: 2(13) SF gets: Kyle Orton, 2012 4th. The Niners get a quick fix at QB, and a mid round pick in 2012. They can get a QB of the future next year. Meanwhile the Broncos make Tim Tebow their quarterback, and get a Nose Tackle to anchor their defense.
14. Denver Broncos: Bruce Carter OLB UNC – Carter is a versatile linebacker that can play outside in a 3-4 or 4-3.
15. St. Louis Rams: Kyle Rudolph TE Notre Dame – Rudolph is a first round talent that will help Sam Bradford immensely. With Donnie Avery returning this year, the Rams don’t go WR early.
16. Oakland Raiders: DeMarcus Love OT Arkansas – The Raiders will sign Vince Young this offseason guaranteed, so they get a right tackle to help protect him.
17. Jacksonville Jaguars: Torrey Smith WR Maryland – If the Jags lose Mike Sims-Walker this offseason, they will need to add a wide receiver early. Smith is a good value in round 2.
18. Detroit Lions: Brandon Burton CB Utah - TRADE SDC gets: 2(12), 4(11) DET gets: 2(18 ), 3(25). The Lions get a much needed corner in round 2 to upgrade their secondary. Burton is underrated corner that will really help the secondary.
19. Philadelphia Eagles: Ras-I Dowling CB Virginia – TRADE PHI gets: 2(19), 2012 3rd MIN gets: Kevin Kolb. MIN got 2(19) by trading down in round 1 with TBB. Philly trades Kolb so he can start somewhere, and gets a big a corner that can help Asante Samuel handle the receivers of the NFC East. Minnesota gets their franchise QB after addressing offensive line and secondary earlier.
20. New York Giants: Marcus Cannon OT/OG TCU – Cannon is a mammoth that will greatly improve the Giants running game whether he plays right tackle or guard.
21. Indianapolis Colts: Drake Nevis DT LSU – Nevis is undersized, but he is fast and makes plays in the running, and passing game for the defense. Sounds like a Colts players.
22. Philadelphia Eagles: Greg Jones LB Michigan State – Jones can play inside or outside linebacker for the Eagles and fills another big need for them as they revamp their defense.
23. Kansas City Chiefs: Jabal Sheard OLB Pittsburgh – KC gets another outside linebacker that can play opposite Tamba Hali.
24. New Orleans Saints: Casey Matthews OLB Oregon – Matthews may have made himself a 2nd or 3rd round pick with his performance in the National Championship, and the Saints need an outside linebacker badly.
25. Seattle Seahawks: Jurrell Casey DT USC – Seattle has productive ends, but they can’t say the same for their tackles. Casey is a good value here in round 2 and reunites with Pete Carroll.
26. San Diego Chargers: Muhammed Wilkerson DE Temple – More help for the front seven as the Chargers add a 5 technique DE in round 2.
27. Baltimore Ravens: Rodney Hudson C/OG Florida State – Matt Birk is getting old, and Hudson can play guard before taking over at center for the Ravens.
28. Atlanta Falcons: Titus Young WR Boise State – Young is a play making receiver that can take the top off of defenses, which Atlanta really lacks.
29. Chicago Bears: Mason Foster OLB Washington – Foster is an upgrade over Pisa Tino…… And adds some youth to the Bears linebackers.
30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Curtis Brown CB Texas – The corners are the weakness of the Steelers defense, so they add one early in the 2011 draft.
31. Green Bay Packers: Davon House CB New Mexico State – House has a lot of potential and can learn from Charles Woodson while Tramon Williams plays the other corner spot.
32. Kansas City Chiefs: Sione Fua NT Stanford – TRADE NEP gets: 1(21) KCC gets: 2(1), 2(32). Kansas City lacks a big nose tackle to anchor their 3-4 defense, so they get one at the end of round 2.

Round 3
1. Carolina Panthers: Marvin Austin DT UNC – Austin has the talent and potential to go in the 1st round at a position of need for the Panthers, and is a hometown kid. Sounds like a 3rd round pick to me.
2. Cincinnati Bengals: Ryan Williams RB Virginia Tech – Williams should have stayed in school because of the lack of need for running backs this year. He goes in round 3 after a disappointing junior season and the Bengals may have the steal of the draft.
3. Denver Broncos: Deunta Williams S UNC – More help for the defense as the Broncos add a young safety to learn from and play with Brian Dawkins.
4. Buffalo Bills: Chris Hairston OT Clemson – Whoever plays QB for the Bills this season will need a new left tackle protecting him.
5. Atlanta Falcons: Clint Boling OL Georgia – TRADE ARI gets: 1(28 ), 3(28 ) ATL gets: 2(6), 3(5). Boling can play both guard, and both tackle positions for the Falcons.
6. Cleveland Browns: Jeremy Beal OLB Oklahoma – Beal doesn’t have the size to play defensive end, or the cover skills to play linebacker, but his potential is worth a shot for a 3-4 team in round 3.
7. Dallas Cowboys: Darius Morris OT Temple – At worst the Cowboys get a versatile lineman that can play tackle or guard for them in Morris.
8. New Orleans Saints: Daniel Thomas RB Kansas State – Thomas is a powerful running back that can replace Pierre Thomas for the Saints.
9. San Francisco 49ers: Johnny Patrick CB Louisville – TRADE: SF gets 1(11), 3(9) HOU gets: 1(7). After adding Von Miller and Kyle Orton, the Niners fill their next biggest hole at corner in round 3.
10. New England Patriots: Rashard Carmichael CB Virginia Tech – The Patriots still need another corner and Carmichael is a good value here in round 3.
11. Detroit Lions: Kris O’Dowd C USC – O’Dowd will improve the running game whether he is playing guard or center for the Lions.
12. San Francisco 49ers: Nate Irving ILB NC State – The Niners could use a linebacker to play next to Patrick Willis.
13. Tennessee Titans: John Moffit OG Wisconsin – Moffit is a good run blocker that will improve the Titans running game a lot.
14. Indianapolis Colts: Kenny Tate S Maryland – TRADE IND gets: 3(14) STL gets: Joseph Addai. St. Louis gets a proven back that can take some of the load off of Steven Jackson and prolong his career, while being the 3rd down back as well. Bob Sanders just can’t stay healthy, so the Colts get a long-term replacement, and they continue to get younger by making Donald Brown the starter.
15. Miami Dolphins: DeMarco Murray RB Oklahoma – Murray is a quick back that can catch and is a good compliment to Ronnie Brown.
16. Jacksonville Jaguars: Andy Dalton QB TCU – Dalton is an athletic quarterback that is a winner. He can learn under David Garrard for a couple years.
17. Oakland Raiders: Jalil Brown CB Colorado – If Asomugha leaves, the Raiders will need to bring in a couple of guys to replace him, and Brown is a start.
18. San Diego Chargers: Jordan Todman RB UConn – Ryan Matthews wasn’t very successful last year so the Chargers bring in another young back to join him.
19. New York Giants: Christian Ballard DT Iowa – Ballard has the potential of a 1st rounder but looks like a 3rd round talent.
20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Quinton Carter S Oklahoma – The Bucs need to find a replacement for Tanard Jackson.
21. Philadelphia Eagles: Quan Sturdivant ILB UNC – Philly gets another much needed young linebacker.
22. Kansas City Chiefs: Orlando Franklin OL Miami – Franklin is a versatile lineman that at the worst adds depth in KC.
23. Denver Broncos: Dont’a Hightower ILB Alabama – TRADE DEN gets: 3(23) IND gets: D.J. Williams. The rebuilding continues in Denver as they add a young versatile inside linebacker to replace Williams after trading him to Indy. Meanwhile Indy makes a huge upgrade for their front seven.
24. New Orleans Saints: Nathan Ederle QB Idaho – The Saints add a QB that can develop under Drew Brees much like Tony Romo developed in Dallas.
25. Detroit Lions: Kelvin Sheppard ILB LSU - TRADE SDC gets: 2(12), 4(11) DET gets: 2(18), 3(25). Adding Ayers and Sheppard to this defense will really improve the front seven and will let DeAndre Levy play OLB.
26. New York Jets: DeAndre McDaniel S Clemson – The Jets could use an upgrade over Brodney Pool.
27. Baltimore Ravens: Greg Little WR UNC – Joe Flacco will welcome a young replacement for TJ Houshmanzedah with open arms.
28. Arizona Cardinals: DJ Williams TE Arkansas - TRADE ARI gets: 1(28 ), 3(28 ) ATL gets: 2(6), 3(5). Williams follows Mallett to Arizona to make the transition easier, and fill a big hole for the Cards.
29. Chicago Bears: Austin Pettis WR Boise State – Pettis gives the Bears a bigger receiver to compliment Knox, Bennett, and Hester.
30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Derek Hall OT Stanford – Hall gives the Steelers a young option at right tackle.
31. Green Bay Packers: Will Hill S Florida – Hill gives the Packers a better replacement for Atari Bigby.
32. New England Patriots: Dwayne Harris WR ECU – Harris is a play maker at receiver that can help replace Randy Moss in New England.

So the Rams three biggest needs (WR, OLB, DE) are ingnored in the first 3 rounds? Donnie Avery is coming back, but he is clearly not the answer. He can't be trusted as anything more than a #3 reciever.

I do like your picks, but you just can't overlook all three of our biggest needs.

Would love this Lions draft. However, I would rather have Brandon Harris in RD 1. I think Ayers plays way too soft and I really like Harris, he is a gamer.

Solid eagles mock, they won't and don't have to draft 2 LBs in the 1st 3 rounds though.

Oh my. If the Phins draft ended up like that I'd probably end up streaking! Awesome Phins draft!! That's about as perfect as I could hope for! +REP!

Switch the Browns 3rd rounder from Beal to Ballard and I'd love it

11. San Francisco 49ers: Von Miller OLB Texas A&M - ..... they grab perhaps the best 3-4 OLB in the draft in Von Miller, who fills another big hole for this defense.

This could happen if & only if:

a) Miller wows all the scouts at the Combine & all star games
b) the 9ers don't re-sign Manny Lawson, he was in his contract yr.

BTW D'onta Hightower is staying in school in 2011.

I have to ignore the draft and just say it is not a lock that vince young goes to oakland. In fact that will not happen at all.

I hate when people posts Mocks that are so jumbled up it hurts to try and read them.

We're not going to take a RB in the first round. I like Leshoure more than Ingram, but we don't need a runningback that much to take one in the first. 3rd or 4th round would be much better. Possibly as high as the second round if Leshoure fell or Ryan Williams, but no RB in the first round. Justin Houston would be perfect there.

Second round is ok I guess. I don't know much about House, but we could use a corner. Although if we don't get an OLB in the first I'd want Beal there.

Third round is bad, we don't need another safety. We just took one in the third last year. Charlie Peprah has played very well filling in too. Between Perah, Burnett, and maybe Bigby we'll be fine there. A third rounder is not going to improve the position.

Not my ideal Denver draft, but you did a great job of getting value at each pick.

I could dig that vikings draft. I highly doubt they would trade that much in the first two rounds though.

2011 NFL Mock Draft
Round 1
1. Carolina Panthers: Nick Fairley DT Auburn – Ron Rivera is a defensive mind and will fall in love with Fairley. The young defensive ends and the good linebackers in Carolina will benefit greatly with the addition of an elite DT like Fairley and Brandon LaFell and David Gettis should progress.

2. Denver Broncos: Patrick Peterson CB LSU – With Champ Bailey on his way out and Fairley gone, this is an easy choice for John Fox and the Broncos. Peterson is an elite corner that should make people forget about Bailey.

3. Cleveland Browns: A.J. Green WR Georgia – TRADE CLE gets: 1(3) BUF gets: 1(6), 2(5). Cleveland’s biggest need is a number 1 receiver for Colt McCoy. With Green being the best wide receiver prospect since Calvin Johnson, they can’t pass up this opportunity. Meanwhile the Bills, having missed out on Fairley add another 2nd rounder and safe some money.

4. Cincinnati Bengals: Da’Quan Bowers DE Clemson – With Fairley and Green off the board, that leaves the Bengals to choose between Bowers and Dareus. Bowers upside and ability to play right end in a 4-3 make this a good fit. Bowers and Dunlap create a very good defensive end duo.

5. Arizona Cardinals: Robert Quinn OLB UNC – With Gabbert, Quinn and Amukamara as possibilities here, the Cardinals decide to add a pass rushing linebacker for there 3-4. The Cardinals will add a veteran QB like McNabb in free agency.

6. Buffalo Bills: Marcel Dareus DE Alabama - TRADE CLE gets: 1(3) BUF gets: 1(6), 2(5). The Bills trade down a few spots and pick up a perfect fit for their 3-4 defense. Dareus is a huge end that can rush the passer very well, but doesn’t have the run stuffing ability to play DT.

7. Houston Texans: Prince Amukamara CB Nebraska – TRADE HOU gets: 1(7) SF gets: 1(11), 3(9). The Texans secondary was horrid last year. Though they are young, adding a player like Amukamara is an opportunity that they cannot pass up. He will improve their defense drastically.

8. Tennessee Titans: Blaine Gabbert QB Missouri – After cutting ties with Vince Young, the Titans will need to address the quarterback issue this offseason. With Kerry Collins on the roster, adding a young QB like Gabbert through the draft is not a bad idea.

9. Dallas Cowboys: Von Miller OLB Texas A&M – Miller is a fierce pass rusher that has experience in a 3-4 scheme. Pairing him with DeMarcus Ware will make the Cowboys scary for any QB to face.

10. Washington Redskins: Cameron Jordan DE California – Jordan is a mid-first round talent that will likely move up draft boards after the combine. He is a great fit for a 3-4 team like Washington that needs help up front.

11. San Francisco 49ers: Jake Locker QB Washington - TRADE HOU gets: 1(7) SF gets: 1(11), 3(9). The Niners gain a 3rd round pick and get Jim Haurbaugh his franchise quarterback. A core of Locker, Gore, Crabtree and Davis on offense with a young offensive line is scary.

12. Indianapolis Colts: Nate Solder OT Colorado – TRADE IND gets: 1(12) MIN gets: 1(22), 2(21). Solder has the best chance of sticking at left tackle of any prospect in the draft. Left tackle happens to be a huge hole for the Colts, and with the Lions, Patriots, and Chargers coming up, they make their move to protect Peyton Manning. Meanwhile Minnesota moves down after missing out on Locker.

13. Detroit Lions: Akeem Ayers OLB UCLA – After missing out on Amukamara, the Lions go to their next biggest need at outside linebacker. Ayers is a versatile player that should have a Karlos Dansby type impact for the Lions.

14. St. Louis Rams: Julio Jones WR Alabama – The Rams need to get Sam Bradford a #1 receiver. At 6’4 220, Jones has the size/speed/hands/jumping/ego to become a #1 target. Receivers rarely go in the top 10 unless they have nearly no question marks and Jones slips to 14.

15. Miami Dolphins: Cam Newton QB Auburn – Chad Henne is falling out of favor in Miami and Newton has the most potential of any QB in the draft. Henne and Pennington can start for the Dolphins while Newton develops.

16. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ryan Kerrigan DE Purdue – Kerrigan is a safe prospect that just gets the job done. Combining him with Aaron Kampman will really help the pass rush and should help the Jags’ secondary as well.

17. New England Patriots: Anthony Castonzo OT Boston College – Tackle is a big need for the Patriots and Castonzo is arguably the best in the draft, and happens to be a hometown guy.

18. San Diego Chargers: Tyron Smith OT USC – If Smith can add a little weight to his frame, he has the athleticism and strength to be an elite right tackle for the Chargers.

19. New York Giants: Stephen Paea DT Oregon State – Paea is a stout defensive tackle that is made for the 4-3. He can anchor the defense and allow the defensive ends in New York to go to work.

20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Aldon Smith DE Missouri – Smith has as much potential as any defensive end in the draft. He is an NFL pass rusher right now, but he may need a little time to add some strength before being a very good every down player.

21. New England Patriots: J.J. Watt DE Wisconsin – TRADE NEP gets: 1(21) KCC gets: 1(28), 3(28). The Chiefs don’t see a wide receiver worth taking this high so they slide down a few spots and gain a 3rd rounder. Meanwhile, New England has so many picks, they use some to move up and snatch Watt. He is a perfect fit for their 3-4 as a defensive end and has a great motor.

22. Minnesota Vikings: Mike Pouncey C/G Florida - TRADE IND gets: 1(12) MIN gets: 1(22), 2(21). Minnesota struggled to open running lanes for Adrian Peterson despite having Loadholt, McKinnie, and Hutchinson up front. Adding Pouncey will go a long way in improving that whether he plays center or guard.

23. Philadelphia Eagles: Gabe Carimi OT Wisconsin – After missing out on Pouncey, the Eagles grab Carimi who is the most NFL ready tackle in the draft and can start on the right side for Philly and protect Mike Vick’s blindside.

24. New Orleans Saints: Mark Ingram RB Alabama – After having so many running back problems last year, the Saints grab Ingram. He can handle the load and replace Pierre Thomas, and his power style is a great compliment to Reggie Bush.

25. Seattle Seahawks: Jimmy Smith CB Colorado – The Seahawks need to add a big corner to handle Fitzgerald, Crabtree, and now Julio Jones in the NFC West. After the combine, Smith will be a 1st round prospect.

26. Baltimore Ravens: Brandon Harris CB Miami – Baltimore has needed a young corner for a while now, and finally get one that will help not only in pass defense, but in run defense as well.

27. Atlanta Falcons: Justin Houston DE Georgia – Houston is a fierce pass rusher that stays home in Georgia, and can play across from John Abraham.

28. Kansas City Chiefs: Jonathan Baldwin WR Pittsburgh - TRADE NEP gets: 1(21) KCC gets: 1(28), 3(28). Kansas City needs to add a #2 receiver for Matt Cassel. Baldwin has the size, speed and hands to be a great compliment to Dwayne Bowe and Dexter McCluster.

29. New York Jets: Cameron Heyward DE Ohio State – Heyward is a prototypical 5 technique for the Jets 3-4 and is a good value at the end of round 1.

30. Chicago Bears: Marcus Cannon T/G TCU – Cannon is a versatile lineman that can play right tackle or guard for the Bears and will really help their Offensive line.

31. Green Bay Packers: Derek Sherrod OT Mississippi State – Green Bay still has some holes on the offensive line and Sherrod can play left or right tackle.

32. Pittsburgh Steelers: Aaron Williams CB Texas – Williams is a fluid corner that will really help the weakest part of the Steelers’ defense.


Round 2
1. Washington Redskins: Ryan Mallett QB Arkansas – TRADE WAS gets: 2(1) NEP gets: 2012 1st rounder. A draft just wouldn’t be right if the Pats didn’t have 2 first round picks, so they add one for next year and the new CBA. Meanwhile Mike Shanahan gets his new franchise QB to replace McNabb.

2. Buffalo Bills: Pat Devlin QB Delaware – If he has a good combine, Devlin could move himself into early round 2, and the Bills need a QB that can develop under Ryan Fitzpatrick.

3. Cincinnati Bengals: Mikel Leshoure RB Illinois – Leshoure is an all around back that can play on 3rd down and replace Cedric Benson for the Bengals.

4. Denver Broncos: Adrian Clayborn DE Iowa – Clayborn is a 1st round talent, but character questions could push him into round 2. Denver needs help on the defensive line and Clayborn is a good fit as a 3-4 defensive end.

5. Buffalo Bills: DeMarcus Love OT Arkansas - TRADE CLE gets: 1(3) BUF gets: 1(6), 2(5). This may be a slight reach, but Buffalo needs a left tackle for whoever is play quarterback for them.

6. Arizona Cardinals: Ras-I Dowling CB Virginia – After signing McNabb, and adding Quinn n round 1, the Cardinals will look to improve their secondary in round 2 with a big corner to go opposite DRC.

7. Tennessee Titans: Allen Bailey DT Miami – After adding Gabbert in round 1, the Titans try to completely replace the void left by Albert Haynesworth.

8. Dallas Cowboys: Rahim Moore FS UCLA – Safety is a huge hole for the Cowboys and after going outside linebacker in round 1, addressing a secondary is a must in round 2. Moore is the BPA there.

9. Washington Redskins: Torrey Smith WR Maryland – Ryan Mallett is going to love having Smith, Moss, Armstrong, Cooley and Davis to throw too.

10. Houston Texans: Jerrell Powe NT Ole Miss – Powe is the best fit at nose tackle for Wade Philips’ scheme than any other player in the draft and will anchor this new 3-4.

11. Minnesota Vikings: Stefen Wisniewski C Penn State – The Vikings continue to revamp their offensive line. With Wisniewski at center and Pouncey at guard, the running game should return to #1, and I expect them to address secondary issues in free agency.

12. Philadelphia Eagles: Martez Wilson ILB Ilinois – TRADE PHI gets: 2(12) DET gets: 2(22), 4(7). After improving the offensive line in round 1, the Eagles sure up their middle linebacker spot with Wilson in round 2.

13. San Francisco 49ers: Brandon Burton CB Utah – Corner is a big need for the 49ers and Burton should help fill that in round 2.

14. Denver Broncos: Phil Taylor NT Baylor – After adding Peterson and Clayborn to the defense earlier, the Broncos get Taylor to anchor their 3-4.

15. St. Louis Rams: Corey Luiget DT Illinois – The Rams really need to improve their defensive line, and adding Luiget in round 2 would go a long ways in doing so.

16. Oakland Raiders: Benjamin Ijalana G/T Villanova – Ijalana is a versatile lineman that will improve the Raiders running game no matter where he plays.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars: Robert Sands SS West Virginia – The Jaguars really need to improve their secondary and Sands is a good start.

18. San Diego Chargers: Drake Nevis DL LSU – Nevis is a penetrating lineman that can play defensive end for the Chargers in their 3-4.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jabal Sheard DE Pittsburgh – The Bucs need to fill 2 defensive end spots. They pass on Bruce Carter for Sheard who should be able to step in at left end right now.

20. New York Giants: Quan Sturdivant ILB UNC – The other talented UNC linebacker fills a huge need for the Giants defense up the middle.

21. Philadelphia Eagles: Curtis Brown CB Texas - TRADE IND gets: 1(12) MIN gets: 1(22), 2(21). TRADE PHI gets: 2(21), 2012 3rd can turn into 2nd if MIN makes playoffs MIN gets: QB Kevin Kolb. After acquiring this pick by trading down, the Vikings ship it to Philly along with a conditional 2012 pick to get Leslie Frasier his Franchise QB. Meanwhile Philly adds a good cover corner to help Asante Samuel.

22. Detroit Lions: Rodney Hudson C/G Florida State - TRADE PHI gets: 2(12) DET gets: 2(22), 4(7). The Lions don’t see a corner they like here either, so they address another big need. Hudson can fill a hole at center or guard for the Lions, and help the running game.

23. Kansas City Chiefs: Bruce Carter OLB UNC – Carter is an all around linebacker that can play in a 3-4 and is a good compliment to Tamba Hali.

24. New Orleans Saints: Greg Jones OLB Michigan State – Jones fills a huge need at weakside linebacker for the Saints that has been their since 2006.

25. Seattle Seahawks: Jurrell Casey DT USC – Casey fills a big need in Seattle at defensive tackle. There isn’t a #1 receiver here, and I expect them to grab Matt Barkley in 2012 at QB.

26. Baltimore Ravens: Nate Irving ILB NC State – Ray Lewis can’t play at this level forever, but he can teach Nate Irving for 2 years before he takes over ready to lead the defense.

27. Atlanta Falcons: Titus Young WR Boise State – Young has the ability to take the top off the defense which is something the Falcons lack at wide receiver.

28. New England Patriots: Jeremy Beal OLB Oklahoma – Beal has the pass rushing ability to play in a 3-4, but does he have the covering skills? That will cause him to drop a bit.

29. San Diego Chargers: Siona Fua NT Stanford – The Chargers still need to find a nose tackle to anchor their 3-4 defense.

30. Chicago Bears: Leonard Hankerson WR Miami – Hankerson is a big receiver that is a good compliment to Knox, Bennett, and Hester.

31. Green Bay Packers: Ryan Williams RB Virginia Tech – James Starks is a 3rd down back and Ryan Grant is aging and coming off a major injury. Williams is a good compliment to Grant and can take over soon.

32. Pittsburgh Steelers: Muhammed Wilkerson DE Temple – Wilkerson is a great value here for the Steelers and is an even better fit, for their 3-4 defense.


Round 3
1. Carolina Panthers: Kyle Rudolph TE Notre Dame – Jimmy Clausen is reunited with his tight end from Notre Dame, and gets a good weapon after passing on Green in round 1.

2. Cincinnati Bengals: Quinton Carter FS Oklahoma – Another big hole filled in Cincy, Carter adds depth and is an upgrade at free safety.

3. Denver Broncos: Kenny Tate S Maryland – Time to find a heir to Brian Dawkins in Denver.

4. Buffalo Bills: Jerrel Jernigan WR Troy – Jernigan is a playmaker that can at least play slot for the Bills.

5. Arizona Cardinals: Andy Dalton QB TCU – Dalton can develop under Donovan McNabb for a couple years.

6. Cleveland Browns: Marvin Austin DT UNC – Austin is a 1st round talent that can play defensive end for the Browns.

7. Dallas Cowboys: Rashard Carmichael CB Virginia Tech – More help for a pitiful Cowboys’ secondary.

8. New Orleans Saints: Christian Ballard DT Iowa – The Saints continue to fill big holes across the board.

9. San Francisco 49ers: Steven Friday OLV Virginia Tech - TRADE HOU gets: 1(7) SF gets: 1(11), 3(9). 49ers pick up a good pass rusher for their 3-4 defense.

10. New England Patriots: John Moffit OG Wisconsin – More depth for the Pats’ offensive line, and Moffit can help replace Mankins.

11. Carolina Panthers: Joseph Barksdale OL LSU – TRADE CAR gets: 3(11) DET gets: Steve Smith WR. Carolina needs to add a lineman this offseason and Barksdale is a good value in round 3. Meanwhile Detroit is close to competing, so they add a true #2 receiver, and will address the secondary in free agency.

12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mason Foster OLB Washington – TRADE TBB gets: 3(12) SFF gets: 3(20), 2012 4th. Tampa moves up to fill a big hole on defense with a 2nd round talent.

13. Tennessee Titans: Kris O’Dowd C USC – Tennessee has to do something about their suddenly weak offensive line.

14. St. Louis Rams: Daniel Thomas RB Kansas State – Thomas is a high potential back that can learn from Steven Jackson for a couple years while spelling him.

15. Miami Dolphins: DeMarco Murray RB Oklahoma – Murray is at worst a very good 3rd down back, and will compliment Ronnie Brown very nicely.

16. Jacksonville Jaguars: Johnny Patrick CB Louisville – More help for this weak secondary.

17. Oakland Raiders: Davon House CB New Mexico State – A good cover corner to help replace Nnamdi Asomugha.

18. San Diego Chargers: DeAndre McDaniel S Clemson – Help for the secondary in round 3.

19. New York Giants: Jordan Todman RB UConn – Since no one can handle the load in NY, they add another young back to the mix.

20. San Francisco 49ers: Kendrick Ellis NT Hampton - TRADE TBB gets: 3(12) SFF gets: 3(20), 2012 4th. 3-4 defense need a lot of depth at nose tackle.

21. Philadelphia Eagles: John Clay RB Wisconsin – Clay’s power game is a great compliment to LeSean McCoy.

22. Kansas City Chiefs: Jason Pinkston OT Pittsburgh – Pinnkston could develop into a nice left tackle and move Brandon Albert to guard.

23. Indianapolis Colts: Jarvis Jenkins DT Clemson – Finally a huge run stopping tackle to anchor the Colts run defense.

24. New Orleans Saints: Casey Matthews OLB Oregon – Adding Matthews and Jones at linebacker would be huge for the Saints.

25. San Diego Chargers: Austin Pettis WR Boise State – Pettis is a good possession receiver to go with the downfield threats in San Diego.

26. Baltimore Ravens: Dwayne Harris WR ECU – Flacco wouldn’t mind a young replacement for Housh.

27. Atlanta Falcons: Clint Boling OL Georgia – Versatile lineman that adds depth in Atlanta.

28. Kansas City Chiefs: Mike Sheppard ILB LSU - TRADE NEP gets: 1(21) KCC gets: 1(28), 3(28). More depth for this 3-4 defense.

29. New York Jets: Pernell McPhee OLB Mississippi State – Jets need to add a pass rush to help their secondary.

30. Chicago Bears: Greg Romeus DE Pittsburgh – Romeus can rotate with Corey Wootton at left end.

31. Green Bay Packers: Jalil Brown CB Colorado – Brown can learn from Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams while replacing Al Harris.

32. Pittsburgh Steelers: Darius Morris OL Temple – Very good value here as Morris can help at right tackle or guard for the Champions.

Bold the teams and the pick #.

Not worth it. As long as you can read the picks it's fine. All the prettying up people do in mock drafts is just wasted time and effort. I really don't get why people bother doing things like coloring the font by team or adding a picture of each pick. People are going to quick check their team's pick and then never look at it again, no need to have it look great.

This is a super weird Vikings mock, but it isn't terrible.

ill be watching locker intently during senior bowl week. hes got to prove himself worthy again of a top 10 pick but if he does well that week than i could definitely see shanahan making that selection.

hankerson in the 2nd sucks. please give us anyone else. he's soft, inconsistent, and unreliable. not at all what this offense needs. if you want to go wr than give us torrey smith. otherwise give us interior OL, 3-4 DE, or 3-4 OLB.

**edit - saw your updated mock

**Cam Jordan at 10 is fine. again, as I said above, well see how Locker looks during senior bowl week and private workouts and how he interviews. those things will go a long way. Torrey Smith is a good pick too although Wisniewski would be better.

The trade up for Mallett is absolutely awful. Shanahan and Allen will not trade away a future first for a quarterback that has slid through every team and is a terrible fit in shanahans styled offense.

better Rams draft, but we still have a gapping need at OLB.

I'd rather see us grab Greg Romeous in rd 3 as a potential replacement for the aging James Hall. This draft is pretty deep at RB so I think that position could be addressed in round 5 or 6.

Overall, I wouldn't complain!

As a Bears and Jags fan, I personally like your first mock more. For the Jags, Kerrigan is the best case scenario. In round two, there are bigger needs than WR, but if Smith falls to him, it would be awesome. And word around Jacksonville is that Gene Smith is very high on Dalton, so I think that is the guy the Jags will target in the third.

As for the Bears draft, I think Sherrod is the best offensive lineman in the draft and I really hope he falls to us. Better pick than Cannon IMO. And the combination of Foster-Pettis is a little better than Hankerson-Romeus.

I don't think it would take the Bucs a 1 and 2 to move up 8 spots. I say a 1st and 3rd is more reasonable. Bucs won't give up a 2nd to move up.

Love the Ravens 1st round pick, gives us a young CB with #1 potential.

Give us Mason Foster in the second, love his versatility and think that he would only get better learning from Ray Lewis.

Dont like the 3rd round pick of Dwayne Harris. He isnt the speed receiver we need to compliment Boldin

Tampa is a young team. I'm not sure how you could justify trading away a second rounder.

That trade is terrible for New England, and the Patriots haven't traded up for a high draft pick since what, 2007? I hate how everyone is using the Patriots' wealth of picks as an excuse for them to think of stupid trades to make. If anything, I'd guess the Patriots will trade down or out of the draft. I also think Cameron Heyward seems more likely than J.J. Watt, and Anthony Castonzo fits what the team likes but is pretty much a strict LT and it seems like the Patriots are planning on playing Sebastian Vollmer at LT in the future.

^^^ I think the Pats will trade up to target someone because they dont have enough room on their roster for that many rookies. They will likely trade for a pick next year because of the new CBA... Thats my thinking at least

Here's a trade chart. A little overpayment for Pats. Not too much though. Just don't like trading up for an OL.
