Tried to be a bit different here. This is still a bit rough, some players I still want to toss in. Some comments so far, more may come. Went some different directions to try out something different, even though some of it is unlikely/won't stick.

Round 1
1. Carolina (2-14) – Cam Newton QB/Auburn

Pick is gaining steam. Not the best choice for Carolina, but they may make it.

2. Denver (4-12) – Von Miller LB/Texas A&M

Hearing rumors of it out there. Will it happen? Probably not, but I wanted to see where this mock went after this pick.

3. Buffalo (4-12) – Marcell Dareus DT/Alabama

Don’t buy them taking QB early, Darues and Carrington are nice Des.

4. Cincinnati (4-12) – AJ Green WR/Georgia

We’ll see what the offseason brings, but if they don’t want Gabbert, they will need a weapon.

5. Arizona (5-11) – Patrick Peterson CB/LSU

Great value for Peterson, though not the biggest need.

6. Cleveland (5-11) – Nick Fairley DT/Auburn

New defense and Fairley adds a 3-tech presence.

7. San Francisco (6-10) – Prince Amukamra CB/Nebraska

Hearing San Fran wants a pass rusher sooner rather than later, but Amukamara great value here.

8. Tennessee (6-10) – Blaine Gabbert QB/Missouri

9. Dallas (6-10) – Robert Quinn LB/North Carolina

Dallas will overlook the medical a bit, pass rusher strong possibility.

10. Washington (6-10) – Da’Quan Bowers DE/Clemson

Is he healthy? Could he been for a fall? Is this a steal?

11. Houston (6-10) – J.J. Watt DE/Wisconsin
12. Minnesota (6-10) – Cameron Jordan DE/Cal

Good to see a different Phins pick, just hate the player picked. I really hope Pouncey isn't being viewed in the same light as his brother because he really isn't worth a first round pick at all. Like the position, hate the player/value, unfortunately any OG isn't worth the value at 15.

Personally not a fan of Murray but he's a good fit in terms of position, skillset, and value there so I'd certainly be ok with that selection.

Why would the Colts take Nate Solder? So he can be a great LT 3 years from now and protect Manning for a whopping 2 seasons? The Colts are built to win now and need players that can start now. Nate Solder is not ready to start in the NFL and aging teams like the Colts don't have the luxury of picking a guy like Solder when he is so behind the curve.

We need OL, DL, and strong safety and already have 2 1st round RBs. CB is probably our deepest position. Really this whole draft for the Colts would be a disaster.

AntoinCD
03-08-2011, 09:25 AM
I like both Smith and Sherrod, however the Pats already have Sebastian Vollmer as a high level starter at one OT position. I would prefer Aldon Smith at 17.

Ingram is a luxury pick IMO and would prefer to look in another direction, Aaron Williams?? maybe.

Hudson is ok once again but the Pats need to address the front 7 on defense.

Not a fan of Sheppard's fit in the 34 though.

Ahmad Black is someone I like for versatility at both CB and S but his poor timed speed will hurt him and the third may be a reach.

Is he healthy? Could he been for a fall? Is this a steal?

9. Washington (6-10) – Jake Locker QB/Washington


Shane wtf! Where would Bowers fit in our 3-4??? Are you going to stand him up across from Orakpo? That just doesn't make sense to me. Watt and Cam Jordan seem like much better fits and with the likelyhood of losing Haynesworth we have to address the dline if the value is right before trying to force another talented player to play out of position. Even Julio Jones would be a better pick. With that said, if the Skins FO (Shanahan mainly) believes that Locker can be the future of this franchise they won't wait till rd 2 to take him. If they want him they take him at 10 or trade up. If that doesn't happen than I dont believe they have the confidence in him and it would be a wasted pick in the 2nd round. Taylor, Wilkerson, or Ballard on the dline would be better picks in that scenario.

I see Mike Pouncey has become a mildly trendy pick for the Dolphins. Too mainstream for me now. Guess I gotta come up with a new pick. ;)

For the Ravens, nothing to complain about but nothing that excites me (other than getting two Canes). The team has said they are looking for bigger, longer corners but that doesn't mean Harris isn't in play.

Also, I don't quite understand the Chykie Brown pick in the mid-2nd. A lot of his stock was predicated on high expectations of his workouts. But he had a just an average performance in Indy all around. He was injured most of his senior year and when he was healthy he wasn't that effective. Not mention he'll turn 25 next season. I could buy the pick back when he was thought to be a bit of a physical freak who could be a talented project CB. Not that the Combine is everything, it isn't, but he needed a excellent combine to balance out his mediocre film.

Your mock envokes great rage, and a little bit of nauseau. That likely means it could go this way on draft day. lol

But, like AntoinCD mentioned, there's no way in hell we take 2 OT prospects that high.

27. Atlanta* (13-3) – Randall Cobb WR/Kentucky

can Cameron play in a 4-3? always thought of him as a 3-4 DE..

Cobb and Jones are nice though.

Maybe. I'm going by the position he lists. FWIW - Sherrod at OG wouldn't reduce my rage or nauseau. I also don't see any way - based on BBs history & the team's current roster - that DE isn't the first pick in the draft for NE. OT second makes sense, be it at 28 or whichever pick we trade into late in the 1st. But all of that goes to the other point I made, which is a draft like this is quite possible, even if I hate it.

i actually value cameron higher as a 4-3 de than 3-4. i think this is a common misconception with his stock just because of his weight but he has the speed, athleticism, and pass rush to play in the 4-3 and is more than just a one trick pony.

everywhere ive read has him as a 3-4 so i guess i just assumed he was gonna be a 3-4 DE in the NFL. I'll admit thought that I havent watched any tape of him. Probably should soon..

Pouncey not worth a Top 15 pick, probably not even first rounder. You REALLY think we'd take him at 15!?

Few things:

I know this will be unpopular with my good friend wicket, but if Mark Ingram is on the board, the Saints would take him over Clayborn. The Saints go BPA. Ingram is not a critical need with the re-signing of Pierre Thomas but he does represent the BPA. If they do not take Ingram, I think Cameron Heyward would be the next choice.

In the second, I think we would take Bruce Carter over Quan Sturdivant. We don't need a MLB. The pick would be a waste.

In the third, let's go with Dontay Moch for the first pick. (You actually did not enter a pick there).

With the second pick in the third, let's go with Kenrick Ellis.

This is my only complaint with Harris. I like him as a CB prospect, but I'm not sure how much I like him for the Ravens.

Hankerson in the second is great, I'll always like that pick.

Todman isn't a good pick at all IMO. McGahee likely won't be back, that's been an assumption since before last season started, but Todman isn't the kind of RB we need to replace him. I think we might just bring Le'Ron McClain back and use him in the role that we did a couple of seasons ago. Adding another FB seems more likely than drafting a RB, especially as high as the third round when we have quite a few needs. Chris Carter would be a better pick there.

03-08-2011, 12:48 PM
I like Von Miller, but his addition would move D.J. back to the middle. He has been less than effective there despite high tackle numbers. We could try Von at SLB, but the value just wouldn't be there, to say the least.

The rest of the draft is fine, as the value is good with each of the last three picks. But, starting with Von, this draft leaves a lot to be desired. I wouldn't feel any assurance that the front-seven is significantly improved, and that will be the focal point of this draft.

03-08-2011, 01:39 PM
IDK if you have Wisniewski falling but I would take him in the 2nd if he falls to us. He would be great value in the 3rd and is a much better propsect/fit than O'Dowd

2. Denver (4-12) – Von Miller LB/Texas A&M

Hearing rumors of it out there. Will it happen? Probably not, but I wanted to see where this mock went after this pick.

I've heard this as well... and I'm not sure it is far off the truth. It sounds like the team is comfortable with DJ at MLB - if true, that opens the door for Miller. If it was just John Fox calling the shots on D I'd feel otherwise, but indications are that Allen is bringing some of the NO pressure into the scheme. If the OLB's are going to get a lot of opportunity to blitz (out of the base 4-3 or off the edge in a 3-3-5), Miller could be a very interesting addition.

The problem with this pick is that defensive tackle holds all the cards:
a) it is the more obvious need
b) it has arguably better positional value at #2
c) there are DT prospects worthy of the second pick in the draft

Denver (4-12) – Marvin Austin DT/North Carolina

There's a lot to like in terms of physical talent there... but he's a dubious character. Given the other prospects still available (Taylor, Ballard, Nevis), I wonder if the team might choose a safer option.

Denver - from Miami (7-9) – Kyle Rudolph TE/Notre Dame
Denver (4-12) – Brandon Burton CB/Utah

Solid picks.

Don't really like Ayers to the Jets in round one. Not really any pass rushing production to speak of, doesn't have those elite measurables to develop that people presumed (and I don't think the Jets really want to draft a project there anyway), and he's just not a very physical player so I don't love the fit into the mentality and style of the defense either. Not sure two OLB's are necessary either, Pace isn't a great pass rusher but he's solid and certainly serviceable as a starter - just not a the guy who you want to be the team's best at getting to the QB. Just don't see Ayers fitting what the Jets need at the position or the style of defense all that well based on what I've seen.

But, like AntoinCD mentioned, there's no way in hell we take 2 OT prospects that high.

Sorry Shane...I think you should go back and look over that Patriots mock again. Four offensive guys in a row (including two tackles!?), then an inside linebacker and a safety? You've gotta be kidding me. My predictions based on who's left:

1. DE Cameron Heyward, Ohio St.

Perfect fit at right end in the base defense - needs to be more consistent.

1. RB Mark Ingram, Alabama*

A luxury pick based on the board remaining and the Pats' number of picks.

2. OT Derek Sherrod, Mississippi St.

Eventual (immediate?) successor to Matt Light - compliments Vollmer.

2. OG Marcus Cannon, Texas Christian

A somewhat risky "boom-or-bust" pick for Scarnecchia to try and coach up.

3. C Stefen Wisniewski, Penn St.

Did you forget to put him in? Great fit at center in New England - huge need.

3. FS Ahmad Black, Florida

Florida connection is real and I think their obsession with Ahmad Black is, too.

Cobb and Jones are nice though.

It'll be pretty much like having another Jamal Anderson on our roster. Definitely not what we want, since we've emphasized "speed and explosiveness" so much this season. Besides, TD tries to look for DE around 6'3-6'4 and about 260-270.

Seriously though, what is wrong with this mock? I had to pinch myself when I saw an interior OL being drafted before any OT...

Robert Quinn for the Cowboys? Wonder if that will do any good without DL protection up front and MAJOR secondary concerns behind.

03-08-2011, 04:00 PM
Bucs not adressing DE in the top 3 rounds would be absolutely brutal. No way we don't adress our top need. Houston or Clayborn over Ayers would be a significtantly better and more realistic pick. I also think Cannon would be a better pick in the second over Kendricks

If we go with 2 weapons on offense, the 2nd pick better be an OL or they will be useless again.

^^^this times a million

Why would a team with one of the worst statistical defenses in recent BB history go offense on their first 4 picks?
2 OTs and a luxery pick?
I think luxery picks should be taken after the the positions of need are addressed.
Not the other way around. Then you're just gambling on your players being available, which is no gaurantee.
Sheppard is an ILB, not a need, and Black is a reach in the 3rd.
How was pass rush not addressed at all???

Packers

Wilson
Baldwin
Little

Not sure I understand the reasoning here... Wilson to the Packers really doesn't make sense. Especially after signing Hawk and Bishop to extensions. They will probably look to provide some depth in a later round with a guy like Nate Irving or Mason Foster a little earlier.

Like the reciever picks, even though I am not sure I am high on Baldwin ( character questions ) would rather have Hankerson.

Otherwise interesting draft for the Pack.

you have the Chiefs drafting two 5 tech guys in the first 3 rounds. Pioli is always enamored with drafting DLineman. so, i could seem him drafting 1 somewhere, but two 5 tech this early seems like alot. that isn't even really an area the Chiefs need to address. again, young depth at DLine is something Pioli drafts every year. i just don't see using 2 of our first 3 picks on 5 tech with so many other positions we need. NT, C, WR and even RT need to be looked at if we draft an OLB in round 1

3. Buffalo (4-12) – Marcell Dareus DT/Alabama
5. Arizona (5-11) – Patrick Peterson CB/LSU

2. Buffalo (4-12) – Colin Kaepernick QB/Nevada
9. Washington (6-10) – Jake Locker QB/Washington
14. Denver - from Miami (7-9) – Kyle Rudolph TE/Notre Dame

4. Buffalo (4-12) – Ras-I Dowling CB/Virginia
10. New England - from Minnesota (6-10) – Kelvin Sheppard LB/LSU


Dareus makes a ton of sense in the first, if they have PP as the BPA they could easily grab him as well.
I can not see Kaepernick over Locker and Rudolph, although having already grabbed Tryon Smith in the first, I can not see the Patriots grabbing Sherrod as well with their first pick in the second, so he fits :) I will say Kaepernick fits Nix's QB drafting history/philosophy....
I like Dowling and it makes sense, I just think they would upgrade at ILB before corner, especially with Sheppard on the board. Dareus-Sherrod/Rudolph/Locker-Sheppard would be a nice start to the 2011 draft for Buffalo...

Trust me I realize he could be really dangerous in our passing game, I just keep reading things about his attitude and character. I mean would he be ok with being the 4th option at first in his career? I do know that I want the Packers to draft an impact WR this year though.

Many Falcons fans won't agree with me, but I'd want the Falcons to take Ingram in Shane's scenario. He's just too good of a prospect to pass at that point. The Falcons could combine him with Turner for a brutal tandem. Eventually Ingram would take over as the primary runner. RB might not be the Falcon's biggest need, but he's got a good all around game and he's a winner with good intangibles.

The older Turner gets the less likely it is that he'll make it through an entire season. It would make sense to pair him with another back. Though I thought Jason Snell did a good job in Turner's spot, what's his status?

He's just not that good. He became ineffective as a runner down the stretch last season and he doesn't offer much other than shorts gains in the passing game.

Shane, I'm really sorry, but this is atrocious.

Anthony Castonzo is just an okay pick. I see him as a guy that is consistently just good. He's a secure pick in comparison to most other choices the giants could make, and he does fit the giants well it seems, but personally I'd like to find a guy who has elite potential. If we wanted a good starter, we'd stick with David Diehl.

20. New York Giants (10-6) – John Moffitt OG/Wisconsin

Now, I don't know if you know this, but most giants fans feel that Diehl should move back to Guard, and even if we don't decide to do this why would we draft another guard? We have Seubert, Snee, and a guy that Coughlin really likes in our late round selection last year: Mitch Petrus. Shawn Andrews is also a guy we'd love to rely in, but he has chronic back issues. It certainly isn't something we need to address, center is but seubert and koets both did great in limited time.

19. New York Giants (10-6) – Quinton Carter S/Oklahoma

Third round and we didnt draft a linebacker, me no likey. Safety is also a place we're pretty set. Antrel Rolle, Kenny Phillips, Deon Grant, maybe Michael Johnson who started for us two years ago.

I don't understand why a team would waste a pick on an acorn from Ohio let alone a first round pick. How is pouncey a first round pick when he is barely a second round prospect.

Yeah, Shane, not a big fan of this Pats mock, for the reasons RoP said.

However, I like the Sherrod and Sheppard picks.

Despite need, I don't like Jimmy Smith to Detroit in the first. The Lions are trying to build a culture of winning with players of character, which Smith apparently lacks entirely. I like Aaron Williams in that spot instead, or maybe Brandon Harris.

Ben Ijalana in the second is ok as you have Moch addressing LB in the third, although I'd take Carter over Moch.
