I tried doing my best using Senior Bowl practice to help place prospects as well as targeting team needs in as many rounds as possible. As always this mock is subject to change and more than likely will look very different by the time I do my final mock draft before the actual draft in April.

Finally, constructive criticism is always appreciated.

As always mock drafts are subject to change and this will definitely change as April's draft approaches.

Round One

1. Carolina Panthers – A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
Many people have Auburn DT Nick Fairley as the #1 pick in the draft and that may very well turn out to be the pick. He was dominant this past year against elite competition causing constant disrutpion in the backfield and being a quarterback's nightmare. He still needs to interview with teams and him growing up with Jamarcus Russell and being close friends with him is highly questionable. He also has a stigma of being a dirty player and his work ethic has been questioned. Green, on the other hand, is the safest prospect at the top of the draft and Carolina needs a weapon for their young QB (Clausen) and to compliment Steve Smith. Ron Rivera is a defensive minded coach and the Panthers don't have any elite talents along the DL but Fairely definitely has some worth ethic and intangible concerns and if you hold the first pick in the draft you want to hit a homerun. Green is the type that will be a franchise WR for years and years to come.

Other option – Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn

2. Denver Broncos – Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson
With John Fox taking over in Denver the Broncos will likely switch back over to the 4-3 meaning they will need someone opposite Elvis Dumervil to put pressure on the QB. This pick centers around Champ Bailey's return since his return eases the need for another cornerback making it a position they could easily address in the 2nd round.

Other option – Patrick Peterson, CB, L.S.U.

3. Buffalo Bills – Von Miller, LB, North Carolina
Bills coaches experienced first hand what Miller can do following this week's Senior Bowl. Miller is the type of pass rusher than can make the 3-4 work and is exactly what the Bills need in their front 7. UNC's Robert Quinn, Alabama's Marcel Dareus and Clemon's Da'Quan Bowers could receive a strong look from Buffalo as well.

Other option – Robert Quinn, LB, North Carolina

4. Cincinnati Bengals – Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
The Bengals are in need of a franchise QB following Carson Palmer's trade demand but with a talent like Fairley on the board it will be hard for the Bengals to pass on him. The Bengals are infamous for being a franchise that has a history of drafting players with questionable backgrounds/work ethic.

Other option – Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri

5. Arizona Cardinals – Patrick Peterson, CB, L.S.U.
If Peterson falls to the Cardinals then the franchise would be ecstatic to grab him. A shutdown cornerback he would pair with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to form one of the best young CB duos in the league. Arizona could also target Robert Quinn as well since Joey Porter has been disappointing as a free agent acquisition and Clark Haggans is nothing to write home about either. Quinn is one of the top pass rushers in the draft and would help beef up the Cardinals front 7 with the pass rusher they have needed for quite some time.

Other option – Robert Quinn, LB, North Carolina

6. Cleveland Browns – Marcel Dareus, DE, Alabama
The Browns are expected to make the switch to the 4-3 from the 3-4 and they will in need of someone to help make that transition. Dareus has experience playing the 5-tech from his days at Alabama and if a move to a 4-3 does occur then he can be that penetrating defensive tackle that is needed. Dareus is versatile enough that it makes too much sense for Cleveland if he is still on the board come their selection.

Other option – Robert Quinn, LB, North Carolina

7. San Francisco 49ers – Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
The secondary has been the 49ers Achilles' heel for some time and Nate Clements has not been the cornerback they expected when they signed him as a free agent several years ago. Amukamara is a difference maker and was a shutdown corner that faced elite competition in the Big XII. They could also look for a rushbacker that they have desperately needed across from Manny Lawson. The possibility is also there for them to draft a quarterback since they have brought in a new coach.

Other option – Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri

8. Tennessee Titans – Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
The sudden firing of Jeff Fisher has all of a sudden cast a question mark over what the franchise will do come draft day. A lot depends on who they bring in as head coach but with word coming out that the team will definitely release Vince Young then that leaves a huge hole at QB. Gabbert is a work in progress and will take some time to bring along but he could sit for a year or two behind a veteran QB before being thrust into action. If they choose to bring in a veteran then they could address the defensive line where starter Jason Babin is a free agent that is unlikely to return.

Other option – Cam Jordan, DT, California

9. Dallas Cowboys – Cam Jordan, DT, California
Marcus Spears is a free agent and Igor Olshansky has not lived up to expectations when he was signed as a free agent. No one improved their stock more during Senior Bowl week than Cam Jordan and he proved during practices that he can be an effective 5-tech especially in Rob Ryan's aggressive scheme. The Cowboys could opt to address their offensive line but that's doubtful given Jerry Jones draft history.

Other option – J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin

10. Washington Redskins – Jake Locker, QB, Washington
Donovan McNabb was brought in to run the offense and that didn't work out and Rex Grossman is no one's quarterback of the future. While Locker could have had a better Senior Bowl performance, there is no denying his athletic ability or the Redskins love affair with the former Washington Husky. Cam Newton could be in the conversation as well if the Redskins choose to draft a QB. A dark horse is Alabama's Mark Ingram as RB Ryan Torain hasn't been able to stay healthy and Clinton Portis is nearing the end of his career.

Other option – Cam Newton, QB, Auburn

11. Houston Texans – Robert Quinn, LB, North Carolina
The Texans need a NT since they will be switching to Wade Phillip's 3-4 scheme but since the value isn't there they opt instead to beef up the pass rush they will most certainly need to help make the 3-4 work. The secondary has been a troublesome issue with the Texans for some time now but the value isn't there either with this pick. Quinn should thrive opposite Mario Williams and would provide some versatility along the front 7.

Other option – Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA

12. Minnesota Vikings – Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
The Brett Favre experiment is finally over and Tavaris Jackson is not the future either. Newton might have the most upside out of any QB in this draft and is worth taking a flier on in the first round due to his potential. They could target one of the DE's in the draft as well since Ray Edwards is a free agent but the golden rule of the draft is if you don't pass up a potential first round QB if you don't have one.

Other option – Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri

13. Detroit Lions – Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA
Ayers would be a tremendous fit for Detroit in Jim Schwartz's defense. Since Julian Peterson is no longer with the team and he Lions need a playmaker amongst their linebackers and Ayers is just that. He's a capable blitzer, is smart and not often fooled by misdirection, is a solid tackler, can handle his own in pass coverage and can line up at several positions on the field. Detroit could reach for a cornerback since their pass coverage has been abysmal recently. Another possibility is for the Lions to finally shore up their offensive line and protect their investment in QB Matthew Stafford.

Other option – Brandon Harris, CB, Miami

14. St. Louis Rams – Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
Sam Bradford took his team within one game of making the playoffs last year without any elite talent at wide receiver. Jones is a huge target for him to throw to and should set up a connection for years to come and would provide the Rams with a pair of young wideouts with the returns of Donnie Avery from injury. Coach Steve Spagnuolo was known for using a variety of defensive linemen so that could be in play as well.

Other option – Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State

15. Miami Dolphins – Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
Both Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams are set to hit free agency this year leaving the Dolphins with a void at running back. Ingram, the former Heisman winner, has carved up elite defenses in the SEC and is the workhorse running back that Miami needs. They could go for a top pass rusher but with such a huge hole at running back the only logical thing to do is draft someone to draft someone who can carve out those yards. If one of the top QB's falls to the Dolphins they could end the Chad Henne experiment and draft their QB of the future.

Other option – Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue

16. Jacksonville Jaguars – Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
Former first round draft pick Derrick Harvey has been a BUST and free agent acquisition Aaron Kampmann will be coming off his second knee surgery in as many years. Kerrigan plays with a non-stop motor, was very productive in Big Ten play, and possesses the character that the Jaguars look for when drafting. All signs seem to indicate that if Kerrigan is on the board then the Jags will select him. If he is not then they could still address DE by targeting another defensive end.

Other option – Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa

17. New England Patriots – Nate Solder, OT, Colorado
Current LT Matt Light is a free agent this year and its up in the air if the Patriots will re-sign him or not. Chances are, though, that they will which will give Solder a chance to learn behind a LT who was one of the best in the league before age caught up with him. While he struggled some during Senior Bowl week, Solder might have the most upside out of any offensive tackles in the draft. Re-signing Light will give Solder 2-3 years to develop which he desperately needs. The Patriots could also look to addressing outside linebacker with either Aldon Smith or Justin Houston.

Other option – Justin Houston, LB, Georgia

18. San Diego Chargers – J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin
This pick could come down to who A.J. Smith values most: a DE or a RT since Watt and OT Gabe Carimi are still on the board. Watt gets the nod since they have not had a competent 5-tech since Igor Olshansky departed via free agency. Watt is aggressive with a non-stop motor and was highly productive during his time in Wisconsin. He excels at getting after quarterbacks and disrupting the backfield as last year he registered 7 sacks and 21 TFL's and is equally effective against the run.

Other option – Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin

19. New York Giants – Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin
The Giants need an big, aggressive offensive lineman to get their running game going and to help protect Eli Manning. David Diehl is becoming less effective and Kareem McKenzie has only a year left on his contract and can be upgraded on. Last year the Giants drafted William Beatty and he can come in on either side of the ball and so can Carimi. A massive mauler who can pave the way for their running backs, the former Wisconsin Badger is the prototypical Giants offensive lineman.

Other option – Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State

20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri
In last year's draft Tampa beefed up their defensive tackles when they drafted Gerald McCoy and Brian Price. This year they go back to addressing their defensive line by drafting the best player available at a position of need. Last season the Bucs had to offer opposing offenses a bunch of different looks just to apply pressure on the QB due to their pedestrian defensive ends. Smith excels at getting after quarterbacks and disrupting the backfield. He also is a hard worker with a relentless motor and is effective when dropping into coverage like when the Bucs give 3-4 looks He is also quite effective against the run and would give the Bucs one of the youngest and scariest defensive lines in the league.

Other option – Justin Houston, LB, Georgia

21. Kansas City Chiefs – Justin Houston, LB, Georgia
The Chiefs already possess a blue chip pass rusher in Tamba Hali but across from him is nothing to write home about as Mike Vrabel is up there in age and becoming less effective. Houston played the rushbacker position for one year while at Georgia so just that little bit of experience should help make the transition to a 3-4 OLB in the pros. He possesses a non-stop motor, great intangibles, and a strong work ethic which are all things valued by the Chiefs organization. He is still a bit raw and needs to play with a little more control but his instincts and raw athleticism are things that can't be taught. If the Chiefs choose to go in another direction then they could give OT a hard look as the right side of their offensive line last year was little more than a turnstyle.

Other option – Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College

22. Indianapolis Colts – Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College
The vaunted Colts offensive line was anything but last year as it struggled to protect Peyton Manning, something it hasn't struggled with in close to ten years. Current LT Charlie Johnson has done an admirable job securing Manning's blindside, however, his more natural position is inside at guard so a move to LG would be like killing two birds with one stone if Castonzo falls into their laps. Boston College has a history of sending solid offensive linemen to the NFL that go on to have long, productive careers and Castonzo seems like the next great BC OL. He's equally adept in both pass protection and run blocking and comes from an excellent program. The Colts are a team that don't have many glaring needs but offensive line is definitely one and suffice to say they will address it at least once during this draft.

Other option – Nate Solder, OT, Colorado

23. Philadelphia Eagles – Aaron Williams, CB, Texas
Asante Samuel is a solid starter at cornerback but Eagles CB Ellis Hobbs will be lucky if he ever plays football again after suffering his second significant neck injury so outside of Samuel the Eagles possess a bunch of nickel corners but no one that can step up and play opposite of him. Williams is a tall, fast cornerback that is highly effective in man-to-man and zone situations while being an effective blitzer and willing tackler. Williams will need to polish up his technique to reach his potential but he comes from a college that has a history of producing NFL starting caliber cornerbacks and he faced elite competition playing in the Big XII. The Eagles have a history of getting big bodies up front so don't rule out offensive line either, however, cornerback is the most pressing need and they are in a prime position to select one of the top ones.

Other option – Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State

24. New Orleans Saints – Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State
Sedrick Ellis has played well in his time in New Orleans but has lacked the complimentary piece next to him to truly make him shine. Paea is a big, aggressive defensive tackle who some have argued is the best DT in the Pac-10. He has shown that he can be unblockable in one-on-one situations which requires him to be double teamed. He can collapse the pocket from the inside, is active with his hands, and is versatile being able to line up at UT or NT allowing for flexibility in Gregg Williams' defensive scheme. The Saints also could use an upgrade at outside linebacker, running back, and possibly wide receiver with Lance Moore possibly leaving via free agency and Devery Henderson needing to restructure or risk being cut.

Other option -Mason Foster, LB, Washington

25. Seattle Seahawks – Tyron Smith, OT, USC
Seattle's offensive line is pretty wretched and they have three offensive linemen that are free agents. Pete Carroll is familiar with Smith from his time at USC and could be the other bookend tackle to keep Hasselbeck or “Clipboard Jesus” on their feet. There is a lot of discussion that once the combine comes around that Smith will separate himself from the pack due to workouts. Smith is a highly athletic blocker that could convert over to LT from having played only the right side in college. He could stay on the right side while Williams moves back to LT. Seattle could also look to address quarterback, defensive end or offensive line as well, however, their biggest area of concern is the secondary.

Other option – Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State

26. Baltimore Ravens – Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
The Ravens could use this pick to look at addressing their secondary as Chris Carr, Fabian Washington, and Josh Wilson will all be free agents this year leaving only Dominique Foxworth and Lardarius Webb as corners. Jimmy Smith possesses incredible triangle numbers, is great at bump-and-run and press coverage, and has a high upside to continue the legacy of great Ravens cornerbacks. Smith's momentum has been picking up recently and he's the type of physical corner that the Ravens look for to compete in the tough AFC North. The Ravens could also target a DE like Christian Ballard from Iowa.

Other option – Christian Ballard, DE, Iowa

27. Atlanta Falcons – Allen Bailey, DE, Miami
Former first rounder Jamaal Anderson has not panned out as Atlanta has hoped and John Abraham, their stud pass rusher, is getting long in the tooth. While still a project, Bailey can come in and be used at either DE or DT and help generate a pass rush that the Dirty Bird's have lacked opposite Abraham. With NFL coaching during training camp, Bailey could turn into the type of base LDE that the Falcons have desperately needed opposite John Abraham. Atlanta could also turn its attention to wide receiver or offensive line, however, DE is their most pressing need and with a physical freak like Bailey on the board they would be hard pressed to pass him up.

Other option – Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland

28. New England Patriots – Stefen Wisniewski, C, Penn State
The Patriots addressed their offensive line earlier in the draft but they still need a RG and an eventual replacement for Dan Koppen and Wisniewski fits the bill. He comes from excellent bloodlines and from a program with a pedigree of developing offensive linemen. Wis stays on his blocks, is very good at both pass protection and run blocking, is aggressive, plays with a nasty demeanor, and does everything well that should make him a starter in the league for many years to come.

Other option – Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State

29. Chicago Bears – Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State
The Bears offensive line played way past their talent level last year and most need to be replaced. Frank Omiyale, J'Marcus Wbb, Roberto Garza and Olin Kreutz are all ineffective as blockers for franchise QB Jay Cutler and all need to be replaced. Even former first round pick Chris Williams is playing out of position at LG making him less effective. Sherrod needs to work on his demeanor as he lacks the aggressiveness that makes offensive tackles great but he is a solid run blocker, possesses good lateral movement, explodes out of his stance and can also protect the QB in passing situations. Sherrod can project to either RT or LT and be there for years to come. The fact is that the Bears need to completely re-tool their offensive line to protect their QB and to get the running game going.

Other option – Marcus Cannon, OG, T.C.U.

30. New York Jets – Christian Ballard, DE, Iowa
Trevory Pryce is a free agent and Mike DeVito is better suited to be a backup. Shaun Ellis is also getting older and will need someone to take over for him soon. Ballard has proven to be a force on the outside as he can constantly fight double teams, shows good balance, is a hard hitter, and is versatile for Rex Ryan's defense. He can be a force as a pass rusher and is equally adept at stopping the run. The Jets could also target NT as Kris Jenkins has struggled to stay healthy. A replacement for Braylon Edwards is also an option as well.

Other option – Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor

31. Pittsburgh Steelers – Marcus Cannon, OT, T.C.U.
This year injuries plagued the Steelers offensive line. They are playing in the Super Bowl with backup center Doug Legursky, back up left tackle Jonathan Scott and free agent acquisition and NFL veteran Flozell Adams. Cannon is a versatile offensive lineman that can play either tackle or guard allowing the Steelers some flexibility when it comes to who they want where. It goes without saying that help is needed to protect Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers could also target a cornerback or a complimentary back for RB Rashard Mendenhall.

Other option – Ben Ijalana, OT, Villanova

32. Green Bay Packers – Martez Wilson, LB, Illinois
The Packers don't have many needs and general manager Ted Thompson usually throws a curve ball come draft day but they do need an offensive tackle and while one isn't there they go after another need which is outside linebacker. The former top DE recruit, Wilson has transitioned over from DE to LB and has seen action at DE, ILB, and OLB. He's a smart, hard-working player with great size that faced some great competition in the Big Ten and while he may need a learning curve he has the potential to turn into a very good 3-4 OLB.

Other option – Ben Ijalana, OT, Villanova

Round Two

33. New England Patriots – Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State
During the Sugar Bowl, Heyward hyperextended his elbow and underwent arthroscopic surgery performed by Dr. James Andrews. In essence, Heyward had Tommy John surgery and while his fastball may never be the same that shouldn't stop him on the football field. Heyward's fall is contributed to the fact that he will have to sit out for 3 months following the surgery and that his motor runs hot and cold on a week-to-week basis. If anyone can get Heyward to compete weekly it is Bill Belichick and his staff.

34. Buffalo Bills – Ben Ijalana, OT, Villanova
The Bills need a LT and Ijalana is the best available and dominated the competition he faced and he can line up anywhere on the OL except center.

35. Cincinnati Bengals – Ryan Mallet, QB, Arkansas
With Carson Palmer demanding a trade this year you have to question how long he'll be around so they need to be looking for the next future face of the franchise.

36. Denver Broncos – Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois
John Fox is a defensive minded head coach and Denver's defensive tackles are pretty horrendous. The key to a good D is getting pressure and Bowers in the first helps and Liuget here helps even more.

37. Cleveland Browns – Jonathan Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh
Colt McCoy is going to need some weapons outside of Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie.

38. Arizona Cardinals – Michael Pouncey, OG, Florida
Alan Faneca is a free agent this year and whoever their QB is will need to be protected.

39. Tennessee Titans – Drake Nevis, DT, L.S.U.
Jason Babin is a free agent and is considered a long shot to re-sign with the team. Nevis is a disruptive force and was so against elite SEC competition.

40. Dallas Cowboys – Rahim Moore, S, UCLA
The Cowboys need a playmaker in the secondary and Moore is the type of centerfielder that the Cowboys have been missing.

41. Washington Redskins – Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami
Jake Locker is going to need someone to throw the ball to and Hankerson drastically improved his draft stock after a stellar Senior Bowl week.

42. Houston Texans – Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
In order to make the 3-4 work you need a nose tackle and Taylor is the best one available in this year's draft.

43. Minnesota Vikings – Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
Antoine Winfield turns 34 this year and they need help in their secondary. Period.

44. Detroit Lions – Rodney Hudson, OG, Florida State
While he's not a LT drafting Hudson would be a step to helping keep Matthew Stafford upright.

45. San Francisco 49ers – Brooks Reed, LB, Arizona
They have been been searching for a passrusher from the 3-4 OLB position.

46. Denver Broncos – Johnny Patrick, CB, Louisville
Another beneficiary during Senior Bowl week and would help shore up their secondary.

47. St. Louis Rams – Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame
Sam Bradord needs more weapons around him and even though they went Julio Jones in the first, Rudolph can serve as the safety valve he has lacked during his rookie year.

48. Oakland Raiders – Dontay Moch, LB, Nevada
He's the type of fast, physical specimen that Al Davis loves.

49. Jacksonville Jaguars – Curtis Brown, CB, Texas
Mathis and Cox are a good duo but it never hurts to have help in the secondary especially in a division with Petyon Manning.

50. San Diego Chargers – Jason Pinkston, OT, Pittsburgh
Jeromey Clary is not a starting RT in the NFL so the Chargers finally find his replacement.

51. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa
Just like last year the Bucs address the same position in the first two rounds and now have Aldon Smith, Gerald McCoy, Brian Price, and Adrian Clayborn on their defensive line.

52. New York Giants – Muhammed Wilkerson, DT, Temple
The Giants love having a bunch of big, capable bodies along the defensive line and long time Giant Barry Cofield is a FA and Chris Canty hasn't panned out.

53. Indianapolis Colts – Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois
Joseph Addai is a free agent and Donald Brown isn't someone who can carry the load by himself.

54. Philadelphia Eagles – Orlando Franklin, OT, Miami
Michael Vick was sacked a ton last year and they need to protect him if he's their starting QB.

55. Kansas City Chiefs – Jerrel Jernigan, WR, Troy
Outside of Dwayne Bowe the Chiefs don't have any reliable receivers that can stretch the defense.

56. New Orleans Saints – Mason Foster, LB, Washington
Scott Shanle is a free agent this year and Jo-Lonn Dunbar is more suited as a backup.

57. Seattle Seahawks – Brandon Burton, CB, Utah
Kelly Jennings is a FA leaving Marcus Trufant the only starting CB on their roster.

58. Baltimore Ravens – Titus Young, WR, Boise State
This year proved that the Ravens desperately need a vertical threat at WR.

59. Atlanta Falcons – Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
Michael Jenkins isn't the compliment to Roddy White the Falcons need and Smith gives Matt Ryan another weapon in the passing game.

60. New England Patriots – Jeremy Beal, LB, Oklahoma
During Senior Bowl week Beal showed that he is much more capable at LB than DE and he has the size and skill to play outside in a 3-4.

61. San Diego Chargers – Nate Irving, LB, North Carolina State
Irving is one of the best inside linebackers available in this draft and the Chargers need help in the middle of the 3-4.

62. Chicago Bears – John Moffit, OG, Wisconsin
Moffit is a big, nasty road grader that can play either guard position.

63. Pittsburgh Steelers – Danny Watkins, OG, Baylor
While he may be old Watkins dominated during the Senior Bowl and would be able to step in immediately for the Steelers.

64. Green Bay Packers – James Carpenter, OG, Alabama
Carpenter really increased his stock in Mobile and can play either tackle or guard in Green Bay's ZBS.

Round Three

65. Carolina Panthers - Sam Acho, DE, Texas
66. Cincinnati Bengals – DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma
67. Denver Broncos – Luke Stocker, TE, Tennessee
68. Buffalo Bills – Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada
69. Arizona Cardinals – Jabaal Sheard, DE, Pittsburgh
70. Cleveland Browns – Marcus Gilbert, OT, Florida
71. Dallas Cowboys – Clint Boling, OT, Georgia
72. New Orleans Saints – Kelvin Sheppard, LB, L.S.U.
73. Houston Texans – Deunta Williams, S, North Carolina
74. New England Patriots – Davon House, CB, New Mexico St.
75. Detroit Lions – Jalil Brown, CB, Colorado
76. San Francisco 49ers – Jarvis Jenkins, DE, Clemson
77. Tennessee Titans – Mark Herzlich, LB, Boston College
78. St. Louis Rams – Marvin Austin, DT, North Carolina
79. Miami Dolphins – Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma St.
80. Jacksonville Jaguars – Christan Ponder, QB, Florida State
81. Oakland Raiders – Rashad Carmichael, CB, Virginia Tech
82. San Diego Chargers – Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky
83. New York Giants – Jurrell Casey, DT, USC
84. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Greg Jones, LB, Michigan State
85. Philadelphia Eagles – James Brewer, OT, Indiana
86. Kansas City Chiefs – Jerrell Powe, NT, Ole Miss
87. Indianapolis Colts – Sione Fua, DT, Stanford
88. New Orleans Saints – Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State
89. San Diego Chargers – Quinton Carter, S, Oklahoma
90. Baltimore Ravens – Brandon Fusco, C, Slippery Rock
91. Atlanta Falcons – Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin
92. New England Patriots – Ahmad Black, S, Florida
93. Chicago Bears – Austin Pettis, WR, Boise State
94. New York Jets – Greg Little, WR, North Carolina
95. Pittsburgh Steelers – Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia
96. Green Bay Packers – Casey Matthews, LB, Oregon

A combo of Ingram and Christian Ponder or Ryan Mallett and Hunter would be much better for the Phins.

The secondary has been the 49ers Achilles' heel for some time and Nate Clements has not been the cornerback they expected when they signed him as a free agent several years ago. Amukamara is a difference maker and was a shutdown corner that faced elite competition in the Big XII. They could also look for a rushbacker that they have desperately needed across from Manny Lawson. The possibility is also there for them to draft a quarterback since they have brought in a new coach.
45. San Francisco 49ers – Brooks Reed, LB, Arizona
They have been been searching for a passrusher from the 3-4 OLB position.
76. San Francisco 49ers – Jarvis Jenkins, DE, Clemson

To start off with Amukamara and Reed would be a great start to the draft for us.

The only thing I would change is we would probably take a shot at Ponder in the 3rd.

Good work.

A combo of Ingram and Christian Ponder or Ryan Mallett and Hunter would be much better for the Phins.

My reasoning was that the Dolphins used the two back system the past couple of years and with both Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams being free agents this year I felt it worked out by drafting both Ingram and Hunter to replace them since both offer something different.

sadly, there is not a chance we could get Torrey Smith in the 2nd. and no Allen Bailey in the 1st.

Very realistic Patriots draft. But...

http://files.sharenator.com/I_has_a_sad_RE_6_Insane_Discoveries_That_Science_C ant_Explain-s300x400-113580.png

Passing on both Smith and Houston at #17 would be the end of me, I really don't know what I would do. Like I said, it's very realistic but I would absolutely hate passing on those two guys. Beal is OK in the bottom of the second I guess, but I'm not convinced that he can be a factor in the NFL. Nice job on getting us players that fit our scheme though.

king2am I couldn't agree more on taking a chance with Ponder in round two or threw.I like the first two round picks and even the third.We just seriously need a QB either in Ponder ,Stanzi or Dalton .

Im not a huge Solder fan but I can live with it if it does happen. The one thing I would say about this mock is, if they take Black I dont see them taking a CB as well. Black has the ability to play a bit of Nickel and man up in certain situations and that would alleviate some concerns on that end. And even if they went CB, my personal preference would be Rashad Carmichael

I really like the Ravens picks, except for Fusco. I think he's a big reach in the third, although we certainly could use a future C prospect. Ahmad Black would look awfully nice there too. Smith and Young would be perfect additions to the team though.

Not a bad Vikings mock, but I'm not a fan of Newton at all and would like to hear why you gave us Newton over Mallett. I haven't scouted Harris much yet, so I don't know, but how does he translate into the cover 2. He strikes me as a guy who fits better in a man scheme and with Frazier being our coach I see us sticking with the cover 2. Maybe Harris translates well, IDK. Also, you don't need great corners in the cover 2, so I'd rather see us go with a S as our safeties are right at the very bottom of the NFL, and I'd rather see an OL although there really is no one of good value there, other than Hudson, but he doesn't really fit into our power run scheme that Frazier wants to run. I can't hate the Harris pick though as he'd a really good value there.

yeah, to agree with the other Niners fans, I don't see us leaving the first 3 rounds without a QB

Sherrod is meh. Moffit is cool. No to Pettis though. I'd hate to pass on both Dowling and Little all the way in round 3.

Even if it's Christian Ponder. Ponder at #80 isn't a drop, it's freefall.

Browns picks are okay although from what I understand, Cameron Jordan is a real possibility at 6. In addition, I'd prefer Greg Jones in the 3rd.

Love Fairly to the Bengals

Mallet would bust out in Cincy fast. If the Bengals take a QB it has to be one with some moblity in the pocket unless the Bengals seriously upgrade their OL. Would be worst then Mallet vs Ohio State.

Murray is going to be 3rd back and change of pace in the NFL and the Bengals already have their 3rd back change of pace in Leonard and Scott. Bengals need a everydown back

I almost mocked him to SF in the 2nd round but decided against it. I know some team might fall in love with how mediocre he was during the Senior Bowl and draft him before the 3rd round but I don't think #80 is a "freefall" for someone who lacks arm strength and has durability issues.

I really dig the Steelers mock. Our OL would be very nasty with Starks-Kemoeatu-Pouncey-Watkins-Cannon on it.

Pretty unsatisfying Colts draft. Carimi going 3 picks in front of the Colts would be pretty frustrating, as would taking Castonzo over Sherrod.

While I love Ingram and Hunter, we have too many other needs to draft two RBs. They also really like the backups Lex Hilliard, Patrick Cobbs, and Kory Sheets so I'd be surprised to see them draft two guys and not give them a shot to compete for the number 2 back after years of special teams excellence.

I'm ok with the Titans draft. Don't really want to take a 1st round QB, but I think it's a real possibility.

I'd like this more:
1st round - Robert Quinn
2nd round - Nevis
3rd round - Ponder

that would be an awesome draft.

48. Oakland Raiders Dontay Moch, LB, Nevada
He's the type of fast, physical specimen that Al Davis loves.

Please tell me how big are Oakland's LB's right now.260 each 40 more pounds more the Moch oakland has gone away from speedy LB's.they look for bigger LB's if Oakland still liked Speedy LB's Thomas Howard would still be starting.

3. Buffalo Bills Von Miller, LB, North Carolina
34. Buffalo Bills Ben Ijalana, OT, Villanova
42. Houston Texans Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
47. St. Louis Rams Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame
68. Buffalo Bills Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada

Miller is truely a fantastic pass rusher, and very talented. This is not a knock on him.
Almost all of the talk from Gailey and Nix is that they need to stop the run, and get bigger, and I am not sure how Miller how helps either... They gave extensions to Kelsey and Merriman (I know the injury concerns), Moats came on more and more as the season progressed, Torbor is coming back from injury, Batten and Coleman from last years draft class are also coming off injury, and Maybin is still on the roster, I just dont see it with the other holes on the team. But that is me. I like Ijalana, and he could help out at RT and eventually LT. Our TE's had 23 catches and 1 TD last year, which about matches the production by year over the last decade, so Rudolph would be a huge upgrade, and Taylor would fit, although we did draft Troup in the second last year. Kaepernick... His delivery is very wierd to me, I need to watch the senior bowl again, but it looks like he drops the ball and has a windmill type arm motion, could be a good developmental QB, but Herzlich and Matthews could be the ILB they need next to Posluzsny if he comes back.

Solid 1st for the eagles, though I like Harris much more as a prospect than Williams. For the 2nd and 3rd, the eagles don't need 2 OTs (Jason Peters was 2nd team all-pro, and actually deserved it for once), unless at least one of them can move to guard, and neither of the guys you have us taking do IMO. I'd say instead of Franklin in the 2nd, give us Motiff or Watkins, and keep Brewer as the 3rd. Although I think RT is a bigger need than OG, I think that would be the best way to go value-wise.

Jernigan is more explosive and offers more big play potential and is also an explosive return man, even more so than McCluster

Franklin can project to RG at the next level. That's not out the realm of possibility
