**Didnít know the comp. picks when I started this mock so my final 7 rounder will definitely have the full order**

Also my search button in word wasnít catching everything so let me know if I left out a pick in the team summaryís. I do suggest reading the team summaryís however as with all of the trades it might be a bit hard to track your teamís picks. BTW I've been doing these mocks mostly at work so please excuse any errors and point them out to me

Arizona Cardinals
Trades: None

5) Arizona: Von Miller/OLB/Texas Tech
38 ) Arizona: Danny Watkins/G/Baylor
69) Arizona: Chykie Brown/CB/Texas
102) Arizona: Mark Herzlich/LB/Boston College
133) Arizona: Lance Kendricks/TE/Wisconsin
166) Arizona: Justin Rogers/CB/Richmond
181) Arizona (f/Philadelphia) Niles Paul/WR/Nebraska

Quick Thoughts: Basically once I decided to pass up a QB at #5 I deemed it worthless to draft a QB from that point on, so that would explain why I have no QB drafted. IMO the Cards in the first two rounds got the guys who I have #1 rated at their respective positions. Chykie might have been a slight reach in the 3rd but he was the highest rated corner and fills a definite need. The rest of the picks I think are both value picks and fit a need. Especially like the Kendricks and Rogers picks.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Atlanta Falcons
Trades: None

27) Atlanta: Adrian Clayborne/DE/Iowa
59) Atlanta: Titus Young/WR/Boise State
91) Atlanta: Demarco Murray/RB/Oklahoma
123) Atlanta: Curtis Marsh/CB/Utah State
155) Atlanta: Jordan Cameron/TE/USC
187) Atlanta: Chris Walker/DE/Tennessee
218 ) Atlanta from New England: Derelle Johnson Koulianos/WR/Iowa

Quick Thoughts: I actually personally like this draft for Atlanta better than the last one I did. I feel like every pick was a value pick and filled a need in some way. If there is anything I could change maybe finding a more pass rushing end, but I think all the picks are pretty solid.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Baltimore Ravens
Trades: Trade #2: Washington trades(pick #10, #141) to Baltimore for (pick #26, pick #58, pick #90)

10) Baltimore(f/Washington) AJ Green/WR/Georgia
122) Baltimore: Jeremy Beal/DE/Oklahoma
141) Baltimore (f/Washington)Taiwan Jones/RB/Eastern Washington
186) Baltimore: Orie Lemon/LB/Oklahoma State
214) Baltimore - from Philadelphia: Jariel King/RT/South Carolina
217) Baltimore: Zane Taylor/C/Utah

Quick Thoughts: This draft is obviously centered around AJ Green. I identified WR as the #1 need for the Ravens and decided to take a proactive approach. The Ravens have always missed out on the #1 WR in the draft and had to settle for 2nd tier guys so I decided to make a big jump. We know how they value draft picks but AJ Green is absolutely a game changer who can be a franchise player. Not having to give up any picks beyond this year I think is a big plus. And While this draft is obviously all about AJ I think some of the other picks are ok. Jeremy Beal has a bit of versatility can play end but also rush the passer. Taiwan Jones at that point is a steal, he might be the top playmaking RB in the draft. The last 3 picks would have to fight for roster spots, but all do fit needs. All in all I decided to stray from the typical Ravens draft of Torrey Smith, Brandon Harris etc, and tried something new. I kina like it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Buffalo Bills
Trades: None

3) Buffalo: Cam Newton/QB/Auburn
34) Buffalo: Nate Solder/OT/Colorado
68 ) Buffalo: Cris Carter/OLB/Fresno State
99) Buffalo: Luke Stocker/TE/Tennessee
121) Buffalo - from Seattle: Alex Wujciak/LB/Maryland
130) Buffalo: Martin Parker/DE/Richmond
164) Buffalo: Demarcus Love/OT/Arkansas
195) Buffalo: Virgil Green/TE/Nevada

Quick Thoughts: I really like this draft for Buffalo. Obviously the success of this draft for them hedges on the career of Cam Newton, but overall I think the first 4 picks for them all have a chance to be starters for the team down the line. Solder is a potential franchise LT and at worst move him to the right. Last 3 picks could surprise and make impacts. Martin Parker is extremely versatile and could move around to any spot on the line. Demarcus Love would get first crack at RT but if not can try to kick inside. Virgil Green in the 7th round is a great value and he surely would improve the abysmal Bills TE play.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Carolina Panthers
Trades: None

1) Carolina: Blaine Gabbert/QB/Missouri
65) Carolina: Greg Romeus/DE/Pitt
97) Carolina: Dwayne Harris/WR/ECU
129) Carolina: Sione Fua/DT/Stanford
161) Carolina: Davon House/CB/New Mexico State

Quick Thoughts: I think itís a decent Panthers draft. Obviously right off the top there is a bit of a controversy with the pick, but from what I am hearing I feel like Gabbert is the favorite to go #1 overall at this point in the draft. Personally Iíd go with Newton but thatís just my preference. Romeus in the third could step in an be an instant starter. The final 3 picks are all great value picks and fit team needs. Harris is explosive with the ball in his hands and gives that 2nd receiving threat.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chicago Bears
Trades: None

29) Chicago: Gabe Carimi/OT/Wisconsin
62) Chicago: John Moffitt/OG/Wisconsin
93) Chicago: Jurell Casey/DT/USC
126) Chicago: Derrick Locke/RB/Kentucky
157) Chicago: Joseph Barksdale/OT/LSU
190) Chicago: Shareece Wright/CB/USC

Quick thoughts: Solid Bears draft, IMO. Nothing eye popping but I feel the value is ok. Carimi and Moffit help stabilize the Bears O-line. Barksdale that late in the draft could actually compete for the RT job. Shareece Wright fitís the Bears profile pretty well and could compete for a roster spot. Derrick Locke has that extra burst and speed lacking from the Bears running backs.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cincinnati Bengals
Trades: Trade #1: Detroit trades(pick #13, pick #44, 2012 3rd round pick) to Cincinnati Bengals for pick #4

Trade #6: New Orleans trades(pick #24, pick #88) to Cincinnati for (pick #44, pick #66, pick #100)

13) Cincinnati (f/Detroit) Julio Jones/WR/Alabama
24) Cincinnati (f/New Orleans) Mike Pouncey/G/Florida
35) Cincinnati : Stephen Paea/DT/Oregon State
88 ) Cincinnati(f/New Orleans) Ricky Stanzi/QB/Iowa
131) Cincinnati: Delone Carter/RB/Syracuse
162) Cincinnati: Owen Marecic/FB/Stanford
196) Cincinnati: Zac Etheridge/S/Auburn

Quick Thoughts: Lots of wheeling and dealing for the Bengals but in the end I think they end up with a really good draft. The trade down from 4 to 13 proves to be extremely beneficial. You get to move down 9 spots meaning the draft pick salary will be lower plus you get a guy in Julio Jones who you are considering taking at #4. Also take note that the Bengals now have an extra 2012 3rd round pick via the trade down. The move back up to secure Pouncey is a very solid move as he is now expected to go top 20. Pouncey would immediately start day 1. Paea has a freakishly strong punch and immediately provides disruption in the middle of the defense. Stanzi is a nice project QB who doesnít have all the baggage attached like some of the other 2nd tier QBís. Delone Carter and Owen Marecic could be the future backfield of the franchise. Etheridge will be a good special teams player and depth guy. I guess in retrospect maybe addressing the secondary a little bit earlier would have been more helpful.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cleveland Browns
Trades: Trade #10: Cleveland trades(pick # 70) to Kansas City for( pick #86, pick #117)

6) Cleveland: DaíQuan Bowers/DE/Clemson
37) Cleveland: Jonathan Baldwin/WR/Pitt
86) Cleveland(f/Kansas City) Jalil Brown/CB/Colorado
101) Cleveland: Jordan Todman/RB/Connecticut
117) Cleveland(f/Kansas City) Johnny Patrick/CB/Louisville
134) Cleveland: Jeron Johnson/S/Boise State
163) Cleveland - from Denver: Chris Hairston/T/Clemson
165) Cleveland: Greg McCelroy/QB/Alabama

Quick thoughts: Solid draft. Bowers at the top really sets the tone for the defensive line. Baldwin is a somewhat controversial pick here but his upside is as great as any other receiver and he immediately stretches the field vertically. The secondary woes are definitely addressed with 3 solid players in Brown, Patrick, and Johnson. Jordan Todman is a nice change of pace back to Peyton Hillis. Chris Hairston could compete for that RT starting spot. Greg McCelroy is the perfect kind of guy youíd like to groom as a backup.
------------------------------------------------------------------

Dallas Cowboys
Trades: None

9) Dallas: JJ Watt/DE/Wisconsin
40) Dallas: Ben Ijalana/OL/Villanova
71) Dallas: Kelvin Sheppard/LB/LSU
109) Dallas: Jerelle Powe/NT/Ole Miss
140) Dallas: Chimdi Chekwa/CB/Ohio State
171) Dallas: Robert Sands/S/West Virginia
209) Dallas - from San Diego: Jake Kirpatrick/C/TCU

Quick Thoughts: I think this is a solid Cowboys draft. No flashy picks but most if not all of these guys would likely make the roster. I think that Sheppard and Powe are real steals at that point and could make immediate impacts for the team. Ijalana can play either RT or RG, and Kirkpatrick in the 7th could surprise and be the starting center somewhere down the line.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Denver Broncos
Trades: None

2) Denver: Marcel Darreus/DT/Alabama
36) Denver: Martez Wilson/LB/Illinois
46) Denver - from Miami: Kyle Rudolph/TE/Notre Dame
67) Denver: Brandon Burton/CB/Utah
184) Denver - from New England via New Orleans: Pierre Allen/DE/Nebraska
194) Denver: D.J. Smith/LB/Appalachian State

Quick Thoughts: I think itís a fairly solid draft for the Broncos. I feel like the first 3 picks all project to be starters in the long term. I liked the value Burton brought in the 3rd round with that size/speed ratio. Pierre Allen and D.J. Smith are both great college performers and could challenge for roster spots. Maybe should have put a bit more focus on linebackers or a DE earlier, but couldnít pass up on the value of Rudolph at that point in the draft.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Detroit Lions
Trades: Trade #1: Detroit trades(pick #13, pick #44, 2012 3rd round pick) to Cincinnati Bengals for pick #4

4) Detroit (f/Cincinnati) Patrick Peterson/CB/LSU
75) Detroit: Rodney Hudson/C/G/Florida State
106) Detroit: Doug Hogue/LB/Syracuse
137) Detroit: DaíNorris Searcy/S/North Carolina
179) Detroit - from Philadelphia via Tampa Bay: Roy Helu Jr./RB/Nebraska
219) Detroit - from New York Jets: Brian Rolle/LB/Ohio State

Quick Thoughts: This draft is obviously about one guy, PP. Itís an aggressive move to climb up that many spots in the draft but prospects like Peterson donít come along often. Combined with Suh they are the two most freak athletes at their positions. As for the rest of the draft there are some solid picks in there. Like Hudson in the 3rd. Searcy has a ton of potential, personally I really like the Helu pick in the 6th round. He could surprise some and grab that starting RB spot.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Green Bay Packers
Trades: None

32) Green Bay: Akeem Ayers/OLB/UCLA
64) Green Bay: Curtis Brown/CB/Texas
96) Green Bay: Edmond Gates/WR/Abilene Christian
128 ) Green Bay: Jacquizz Rodgers/RB/Oregon State
160) Green Bay: Tim Barnes/C/Missouri
192) Green Bay: Zane Parr/DE/Virginia
193) Green Bay - from Carolina: Justin Boren/OG/Ohio State

Quick thoughts: I like this draft for the Packers, not as much as the one I did my last mock, but I feel like every pick is solid value for the draft slot. I personally like Ayers opposite of Matthews and feel like he was the best available pick at that point. Curtis Brown at the end of the 2nd round is extremely good value. Iíd really expect most of the picks to make the roster. Tim Barnes could be a steal as good Gates. Quizz brings a lot as a change of pace back and possible returner.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Houston Texans
Trades: Trade #3: Houston trades(pick #11, pick #73) to St. Louis for (pick #14, pick #47)

14) Houston(f/St. Louis) Cam Jordan/DE/Cal
42) Houston: Aaron Williams/CB/Texas
47) Houston(f/St. Louis) Rahim Moore/FS/UCLA
104) Houston: Stevan Friday/OLB/Virginia Tech
135) Houston: Darvin Adams/WR/Auburn
173) Houston: Chris Neild/NT/West Virginia
203) Houston: DaíRel Scott/RB/Maryland

Quick Thoughts: Very effective trade down. The guy you get at 14(Cam Jordan) is probably the same guy you were thinking of taking at 11. Aaron Williams and Rahim Moore immediately bolster the secondary as both are extremely versatile DBís. Stevan Friday is an intriguing OLB prospect. Darvin Adams in the 5th round is nice value and he could eventually develop into that #2 wideout. Chris Nield adds depth to the NT rotation. DaíRel Scott is a great ZBS fit with his quick burst and elite top end speed. A nice complement to Arian Foster.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Indianapolis Colts
Trades: None

22) Indianapolis: Derek Sherrod/OT/Mississippi State
53) Indianapolis: Marvin Austin/DT/North Carolina
87) Indianapolis: Jerel Jernigan/WR/Troy
118 ) Indianapolis: Shiloh Keo/S/Idaho
149) Indianapolis: Ryan Bartholomew/C/Syracuse
183) Indianapolis: Jonathan Freeny/DE/Rutgers
213) Indianapolis: Josh Thomas/CB/Buffalo

Quick Thoughts: I really think this is a solid draft for the Colts. Lucky to have the choice of almost all the OTís at 23, personally I like the Sherrod fit. Marvin Austin is somewhat of a controversial pick but if he plays up to his ability is a potential impact defender. Jernigan is a steal in the 3rd and provides so much with the ball in his hands. Keo is all around a solid high motor SS who rarely makes mistakes or is out of position. Bartholomew is a nice project player who could be a starter down the line, possibly the most athletic lineman in the draft. Last two picks are somewhat dart throws hoping for success.

Jacksonville Jaguars
Trades: Trade #4: Jacksonville trades(pick#16) to New York Giants for (pick #19, pick #116, 2012 6th round pick)

Trade #7: Jacksonville trades(pick #49, pick #113) to St Louis for(pick #73, pick #78)

19) Jacksonville (f/New York Giants) Ryan Kerrigan/DE/Purdue
73) Jacksonville(f/St. Louis(f/Houston) Ryan Mallett/QB/Arkansas
78 ) Jacksonville(f/St. Louis): Quan Sturdivant/LB/North Carolina
80) Jacksonville: Jaiquawn Jarrett/FS/Temple
116) Jacksonville(f/New York Giants) Tandon Doss/WR/Indiana
120) Jacksonville - from New Orleans: Scott Lutrus/LB/Uconn
144) Jacksonville: Jermale Hines/S/Ohio State
177) Jacksonville: Corey Lindsey/CB/Southern Illinois
221) Jacksonville (f/Green Bay) Rick Henry/G/Nebraska

Quick Thoughts: I really like this draft for the Jaguars, definitely make great use of trade downs. Kerrigan in the first is a great value and heís an instant starter and improves the pass rush. Mallett with the 2nd pick is one of the picks in the trade down, with an extra pick in the 3rd round I think heís definitely worth the risk. You canít deny his arm strength. Quan Sturdivant IMO gives you a quality starter from day 1. I really would expect most of these guys to make the roster. Tandon Doss is the extra pick you got from moving down 3 spots and he brings everything MSW did, but has more upside. All in all I personally really like this Jacksonville draft. Both depth and quality.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kansas City Chiefs
Trades: Trade #10: Cleveland trades(pick # 70) to Kansas City for( pick #86, pick #117)

21) Kansas City: Phil Taylor/NT/Baylor
55) Kansas City: James Carpenter/OT/Alabama
70) Kansas City (f/Cleveland): Randall Cobb/WR/Kentucky
151) Kansas City: Cliff Matthews/OLB/South Carolina
182) Kansas City: Terrence Tolliver/WR/LSU
212) Kansas City: Nick Bellore/ILB/Central Michigan

Quick Thoughts: I think this is an ok Chiefs draft. Fills a couple of important needs with quality players. Phil Taylor is a the only NT worth drafting high in this draft. James Carpenter can start at either RT or RG. The move up for Randall Cobb in the 3rd round adds an incredibly dangerous weapon with the ball in his hands. Didnít want to go another WR but I felt like Tolliverís value at that point in the draft was too much to pass up on. He fits more of the #2 WR mold which would allow you to move Cobb into the slot where he would really do damage in the NFL. Cliff Matthews has a done of upside although the transition might take a while.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Miami Dolphins
Trades: Trade #11: San Francisco trades(pick #138) to Miami for (pick #174, pick #206)

15) Miami: Mark Ingram/RB/Alabama
79) Miami: Colin Kaepernick/QB/Nevada
110) Miami: Marcus Gilbert/OT/Florida
138 ) Miami(f/San Francisco) Julius Thomas/TE/Portland State
143) Miami: Mario Addison/OLB/Troy
207) Miami - from Jacksonville: Armon Binns/WR/Cincinnati

Quick Thoughts: Iím a little bit happier with this 7 round mock for the Dolphins than I was last time but for whatever reason I always have some problems matching Dolphins needs with value at that current pick. Kaepernick is obviously a huge risk. Marcus Gilbert gives you a bookend tackle opposite of Jake Long. Julius Thomas is one of the more explosive TEís in the draft. Addison is a nice project at OLB as he has a ton of athleticism.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Minnesota Vikings
Trades:

12) Minnesota: Jake Locker/QB/Washington
43) Minnesota: Allen Bailey/DE/Miami
105) Minnesota: Tyler Sash/S/Iowa
136) Minnesota: Daniel Kilgore/C/G/Appalachian State
147) Minnesota - from New York Giants: Greg Salas/WR/Hawaii
167) Minnesota: Ross Homan/LB/Ohio State
204) Minnesota: Nathan Enderle/QB/Idaho

Quick Thoughts: Note a huge fan of this Vikings mock tbh. I definitely think I filled important needs however I donít feel like any of the picks are great values other than maybe the Salas pick. #12 was a tough decision to make as Locker was best QB available and I just couldnít pass on an early QB. Maybe a bit curious taking another QB at the end but Enderle has a ton of upside for a 7th round pick so Iíd definitely think heíd be worth keeping and who knows maybe he surprises and ends up the better QB. Sash and Homan are just solid playres. Kilgore could compete for a starting spot in the interior.
----------------------------------------------------------------

New England Patriots
Trades: Trade #5: New England trades(pick #33) to Tennessee for 2012 first round pick
Trade #9: New England Trades(pick #74) to Washington for (pick # 202, 2012 2nd round pick)

17) New England - from Oakland Cameron Heyward/DE/Ohio State
28 ) New England Anthony Costanzo/OT/Boston College
60) New England: Sam Acho/OLB/Texas
92) New England: Andrew Jackson/G/Fresno State
124) New England: Kendall Hunter/RB/Oklahoma State
156) New England: Vincent Brown/WR/San Diego State
188 ) New England: Alex Linnenkohl/C/Oregon State
202) New England(f/Washington) Devon Torrence/CB/Ohio State

Quick Thoughts: Personally I love this Patriots draft although I can see reasons why a Patriots fan might disagree with some picks. Firstly the reason why the Pats dominate the draft is there willingness to take on future picks. Take note that through the trades before even looking at any of the picks you picked up a first rounder from Tennessee and a 2nd rounder from Washington in next years draft from a 2nd and 3rd rounder in this years draft. Sets you up next year again with 2 firsts and 2 seconds. Now as far as the picks I think Heyward and Costanzo are a very solid first two picks although you could argue that Kerrigan and Wilkerson would be a better combo. Vaid argument but IMO Sam Acho at the end of the 2nd round isnít that much of a dip from Kerrigan as both will have transitions ahead of them. Hunter and Vincent Brown were great value picks and add dimension to the playmakers. Linnekohl that late in the 6th round could be the starting Center down the line. Overall I feel like this would be a great draft for the Patriots, good mix of players who will contribute now as well as setting up the future.
------------------------------------------------------------------

New Orleans Saints
Trades: Trade #6: New Orleans trades(pick #24, pick #88) to Cincinnati for (pick #44, pick #66, pick #100)

44) New Orleans(f/Cincinnati(f/Detroit) Corey Liuget/DT/Illinois
56) New Orleans: Bruce Carter/OLB/UNC
72) New Orleans - from Washington: Marcus Gilchrist/FS/Clemson
100) New Orleans(f/Cincinnati) Will Rackley/G/Lehigh
215) New Orleans: Bilal Powell/RB/Louisville

Quick Thoughts: The reason for the trade down even though the value wasnít great was that there were a ton of players the Saints could have drafted although not one guy who really stood out. I think Liuget is a nice pick for the future of the team and adds depth on the interior of the D-line. Bruce Carter in the 2nd round could push for a starting spot on either side pretty early on in his career. Will Rackley I think could end up being an absolute gem and is the extra pick from trading down. I believe he can start at RT in the NFL and at worst kick inside. Iím sure the Saints would be hoping he could play RT though. Marcus Gilchrist is an extremely versatile DB who could play FS or corner in some packages. Bilal Powell a few picks from the end of the draft is a real steal and would immediately be promoted to that short distance role.
----------------------------------------------------------

New York Giants
Trades: Trade #4: Jacksonville trades(pick#16) to New York Giants for (pick #19, pick #116, 2012 6th round pick)

16) New York Giants(f/Jacksonville) Tyron Smith/OT/USC
52) New York Giants: Drave Nevis/DT/LSU
83) New York Giants: Ryan Williams/RB/Virginia Tech
180) New York Giants: Brandon Hogan/CB/West Virginia
210) New York Giants: Akeem Dent/LB/Georgia

Quick Thoughts: Cost a bit to move up but not much in the grand scheme of things when you consider they get a potential franchise tackle. If Tyron Smith works out the way he should trading a 4th rounder and future 6th rounder in the grand scheme wonít make much of a difference. Akeem Dent in the 7th round is probably the remaining pick which I like most as I think he would have a real shot at making the roster. All in all I think itís an ok Giants draft with the limited picks they had. I did want to address punter and returner at some point but that could be filled through FA or UDFA.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

New York Jets
Trades: None

30) New York Jets: Muhammad Wilkerson/DE/Temple
94) New York Jets: Austin Pettis/WR/Boise State
125) New York Jets: Cheta Ozougwu/DE/OLB/Rice
158 ) New York Jets: Markus White/OLB/Florida State
189) New York Jets: Anthony Gray/NT/Southern Miss
197) New York Jets - from Arizona: Jeremy Kerley/WR/KR/TCU

Quick Thoughts: I think itís a decent Jets mock. Jets donít have a whole lot of needs so I Think they are just looking for guys who can make the roster and add depth. WR obviously could be a huge need. Austin Pettis has everything you want other than speed but he is so smooth as a receiver I think heís a perfect fit with Sanchez. Kerley will get a shot in the slot but more importantly has huge value as a returner. Would make Brad Smith expendable without having to shell out the cash for him. Ozogwu and White are both projects but either or both could make the roster. Anthony Gray gives you a backup NT.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oakland Raiders
Trades: None

48 ) Oakland: Orlando Franklin/OT/G/Miami
81) Oakland: Ras I Dowling/CB/UVA
112) Oakland: Lawrence Wilson/LB/Connecticut
145) Oakland: Kristofer Oídowd/C/USC
176) Oakland: Zach Hurd/G/Uconn
208 ) Oakland: Buster Skrine/CB/Chattanooga

Quick Thoughts: I kinda liked my mock for the Raiders last time but I donít think this one is horrible. Huge Orlando Franklin fan think he can play either RT or RG. Ras-I has all the size and measurements you look for. In the 3rd round I think heís well worth the risk despite the injury issues. OíDowd and Hurd add depth to the interior O-line. Obviously a huge focus on the O-line with this draft which I think matches what the Raiders should be targeting on draft day.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Philadelphia Eagles
Trades: Trade #8: Seattle Trades(pick #57, pick #168, 2012 3rd round pick) to Philadelphia for Kevin Kolb

23) Philadelphia Jimmy Smith/CB/Colorado
54) Philadelphia: Nate Irving/LB/NC State
57) Philadelphia (f/Seattle) Mikel Leshoure/RB/Illinois
85) Philadelphia: Jason Pinkston/OL/Pitt
103) Philadelphia - from Washington: Colin McCarthy/LB/Miami
119) Philadelphia: Stephen Schilin/G/Michigan
146) Philadelphia - from San Diego: Eric Hagg/S/Nebraska
150) Philadelphia: Tyrod Taylor/QB/Virginia Tech
168 ) Philadelphia (f/Seattle - from Detroit: Rick Elmore/DE/Arizona

Quick Thoughts: First off have to address the Kolb trade. Iím sure a ton of Eagles fans will argue that Kolb should get a first round pick but I think the value is more than fair. A couple picks in this years draft and a 3rd rounder next year. More than what you got for Mcnabb, doesnít hurt that personally Iím not a fan of Kolb at all. As far as the picks nothing extremely flashy other than maybe the Jimmy Smith pick but I think it isnít entirely unrealistic to see all of these guys making the roster. Linebacker gets a nice youth infusion with Irving and McCarthy two guys who I think fit the defense well. Wouldnít shock me if both were future starters. Pinkston and Schilin add depth to the interior line and Pinkston can play RT. Leshoure could be the most talented back in this draft and will really push McCoy. He probably takes that short yardage role right off the bat. As usual I always love giving Tyrod to the Eagles, I really think he could develop under Vick plus you can continue to work the system around Vick and Tyrod.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Pittsburgh Steelers
Trades: None

31) Pittsburgh: Marcus Cannon/OL/TCU
63) Pittsburgh: Deunta Williams/FS/North Carolina
95) Pittsburgh: Rock Carmichael/CB/Virginia Tech
127) Pittsburgh: Lawrence Guy/DE/Arizona State
159) Pittsburgh: Mike Mohamed/LB/Cal
191) Pittsburgh: Dion Lewis/RB/Pitt
220) Pittsburgh: Josh Portis/QB/Maryland/California(PA)

Quick Thoughts: I think itís a decent Steelers mock. Maybe more O-line help but overall I like the fits. Cannon is my favorite O-line prospect personally can play either RT or RG. Rock Carmichael fitís the Steelers DB profile extremely well. Deunta Williams helps improve coverage and depth. Lawrence guy is a solid 5 tech prospect. Next two picks are for depth purposes, and Portis is just another guy who you can toy around with at either QB or maybe receiver/returner.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

San Diego Chargers
Trades: None

18 ) San Diego Justin Houston/OLB/Georgia
50) San Diego: Christian Ballard/DE/Iowa
61) San Diego - from New York Jets: Greg Little/WR/North Carolina
82) San Diego: Lee Ziemba/OT/Auburn
89) San Diego - from Seattle: Greg Jones/LB/Michigan State
178 ) San Diego: Graig Cooper/RB/PR/Miami

Quick Thoughts: Just me this is personally one of my favorite teams of the mock although Chargers fans could enlighten me if thatís not the case. Really love the Houston fit in the Chargers scheme. Ballard could very well go much higher than 50 and is the perfect 5 tech prospect. Greg Little is incredibly physical and good with the ball in his hands. Ziemba is a solid RT prospect, Jones can really play most LB spots. Cooper can take on that Sproles change of pace, returner role at a discounted rate.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

San Francisco 49ers
Trades: Trade #11: San Francisco trades(pick #138) to Miami for (pick #174, pick #206)

Trade #12: Washington trades(pick # 152) to San Francisco for (pick #169, pick #185)

7) San Francisco: Prince Amukamara/CB/Nebraska
45) San Francisco Jabaal Sheard/OLB/Pitt
76) San Francisco: Quinton Carter/FS/Oklahoma
107) San Francisco: Shane Vereen/RB/Cal
114) San Francisco - from San Diego: Derek Newton/OT/Arkansas State
152) San Francisco (f/Washington - from New Orleans) Andy Dalton/QB/TCU
174) San Francisco(f/Miami) Tom Keiser/OLB/Stanford
199) San Francisco - from Detroit: Stanli Havili/FB/USC
200) San Francisco: Demarcus Van Dyke/CB/Miami
206) San Francisco(f/Miami) Deandre Brown/WR/Southern Miss

Quick Thoughts: I always find that the 49ers are one of my favorite teams to mock for, most likely because of the number of picks they had. Think the 49ers really made well with the mid round trade moves. CB spot definitely gets upgraded, Prince is a winning pick and Van Dyke has a ton of speed. I tried to make it a point this mock to address the OLB spot earlier. Huge Sheard fan, definitely has that pass rushing aspect that the 49ers have lacked. Vereen, Newton, Keiser, and Havili are all solid picks who Iíd expect to make the rosters. Andy Dalton in the 5th round is great value and well worth giving a shot to develop. Deandre Brown is incredibly intriguing with his physicality. Could be a top red zone target and a steal in the 7th round. Has shown flashes of brilliance throughout his college career. Only pick maybe Iíd change is the Carter pick. Heís a solid player but there are some players I see available that could possibly be better fits.
------------------------------------------------------------------

Seattle Seahawks
Trades: Trade #8: Seattle Trades(pick #57, pick #168, 2012 3rd round pick) to Philadelphia for Kevin Kolb

25) Seattle: Brooks Reed/DE/Arizona
98 ) Seattle - from New England via Denver: James Brewer/OT/Indiana
153) Seattle: Alex Henery/K/Nebraska
154) Seattle (f/Baltimore) Ronald Johnson/WR/USC
198 ) Seattle - from Cleveland: Mario Fannin/RB/Auburn
216) Seattle: Cortez Allen/CB/The Citadel

Quick Thoughts: I know some Seahawks fans will really hate the trade for Kevin Kolb, but firstly I donít believe Whitehurst to be a starting QB, and secondly the Seahawks are one of the few teams in which I can see Kolb being an above average QB. All in all I think they make out pretty well with the trade not having to give up a first rounder. You hate giving up more picks after the Whitehurst trade, but without a quality QB the future of the team is incredibly bleak. As for the draft picks looking back definitely could have addressed secondary needs a whole lot earlier. I do like most of the picks though and feel they are guys who can contribute at some capacity. Brooks Reed improves the pass rush. Brewer could solidify that RT spot, Henery is a kicker actually worth drafting, Ronald Johnson and Fannin are incredible values for where they are drafted. Looking back maybe smarter to change the Henery pick to either Davon House or Justin Rogers.
----------------------------------------------------------------

St. Louis Rams
Trades: Trade #3: Houston trades(pick #11, pick #73) to St. Louis for (pick #14, pick #47)
Trade #7: Jacksonville trades(pick #49, pick #113) to St Louis for(pick #73, pick #78)

11) St. Louis(f/Houston) Nick Fairley/DT/Auburn
49) St Louis (f/Jacksonville) Torrey Smith/WR/Maryland
111) St. Louis: Ugo Chinasa/DE/Oklahoma State
113) St Louis (f/Jacksonville) Daniel Thomas/RB/Kansas State
142) St. Louis: Keith Williams/G/Nebraska
175) St. Louis: Wayne Daniels/DE/TCU
205) St. Louis: D.J. Williams/TE/Arkansas

Quick Thoughts: Personally I like the wheeling and dealing for the Rams. Iím personally from the school of thought that itís worth moving up for guys you really want instead of settling. In the grand scheme of things getting two impact players is worth losing the couple of depth picks you would have had. I know DT is not the biggest need but last year I was fairly(no pun intended) convinced that the Rams might to Suh #1 overall. Obviously either choice of Bradford or Suh would be a winner, but with a guy as talented as Fairley dropping I think it is well worth downgrading your 2nd round pick to a 3rd round pick. Fairely has real potential to be a dominant player in this league. The move up for Torrey Smith gives that added dimension of a game changing vertical threat and a top tier kick returner. Between Chinasa and Wayne Daniels both are really talented pass rushers. Daniel Thomas is great value and could develop into the Steven Jackson successor. D.J. Williams in the 7th round is a real steal and maybe an immediate starter. I usually give the Rams either Julio Jones or Aldon Smith who were both available in this mock but I decided to go another route which something similar could happen on draft day, who knows.
------------------------------------------------------------------

Tampa Bay Bucs
Trades: None

20) Tampa Bay: Aldon Smith/DE/Missouri
51) Tampa Bay: Clint Boling/OL/Georgia
84) Tampa Bay: K.J. Wright/LB/Mississippi State
115) Tampa Bay: Noel Devine/RB/West Virginia
132) Tampa Bay - from Denver: Ahmad Black/S/Florida
148 ) Tampa Bay: Brandon Blair/DE/Oregon
211) Tampa Bay: Henry Hynoski/FB/Pitt

Quick Thoughts: I honestly really like this draft for the Bucs. Solid players all around who Iíd expect all to make the final roster. Aldon Smith immediately improves the pass rush and Brandon Blair is more of that run stuffing DE, both add depth to the end spot. Clint Boling can literally play almost any position on the O-line and is great value in the mid 2nd range. Might try him out off the bat at RT. Huge K.J. Wright fan and great fit for the Bucs especially depending on how Free agency goes. Noel Devine is a great change of pace back and has value as a punt returner. His stock has definitely risen with recent weigh ins. Ahmad Black while lacking ideal measurements simply knows how to play football and is a steal with the 132nd pick. Hynoski is IMO the best pure FB in the draft, I canít even to begin to imagine how a team could stop Blount with Hynoski in front of him on short yardage plays. I guess a critique would be that I didnít address the corner spot. Maybe Johnny Patrick or Curtis Marsh in the 4th round would have been a much better pick than Devine as there is great depth in this draft with scat back/change of pace type backs.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Tennessee Titans
Trades: Trade #5: New England trades(pick #33) to Tennessee for 2012 first round pick

8) Tennessee: Robert Quinn/DE/North Carolina
33) Tennessee(f/New England - from Carolina) Christian Ponder/QB/Florida State
39) Tennessee: Stefen Wisniewski/C/Penn State
77) Tennessee: Deandre McDaniel/SS/Clemson
108 ) Tennessee: Casey Matthews/LB/Oregon
139) Tennessee: Adrian Moten/LB/Maryland
170) Tennessee: David Arkin/G/Missouri State
201) Tennessee: Rob Housler/TE/Florida Atlantic

Quick Thoughts: First off Iíll state that I really like this mock for the Titans although I would completely understand why some Titans fans will hate it. Yes trading a future first is a steep price but IMO no one has a worst QB situation that Tennessee right now. Maybe Mallett has more potential but for a team needing immediate QB play I think Ponder is worth the pick as he has really risen his stock to the point that it wouldnít shock me if he went in the first. If Titans fans hate the Ponder pick which I would understand, I donít think there can be much argument about the Quinn and Wisniewski picks. Those are pretty much two immediate starters from day one. Deandre McDaniel could form a pretty lethal duo playing beside Michael Griffin. Casey Matthews and Adrian Moten are both quality players who add depth the linebackers. Housler is extremely athletic and could nab that starting TE spot pretty early on.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Washington Redskins
Trades: Trade #2: Washington trades(pick #10, #141) to Baltimore for (pick #26, pick #58, pick #90)
Trade #9: New England Trades(pick #74) to Washington for (pick # 202, 2012 2nd round pick)
Trade #12: Washington trades(pick # 152) to San Francisco for (pick #169, pick #185)

26) Washington(f/Baltimore) Brandon Harris/CB/Miami
41) Washington: Mason Foster/LB/Washington
58) Washington(f/Baltimore) Leonard Hankerson/WR/Miami
74) Washington (f/New England - from Minnesota) Dontay Moch/LB/Nevada
90) Washington(f/Baltimore) Jarvis Jenkins/DE/Clemson
169) Washington (f/San Francisco) Brandon Fusco/C/Slippery Rock
172) Washington: Ian Williams/NT/Notre Dame
185) Washington(f/San Francisco - from Seattle) Ray Dominguez/OT/Arkansas

Quick Thoughts: First right off the bat I have to address the trades. It would be hella hard to pass up AJ Green if he were there at #10 but I feel like an offer like the one I proposed would be too much to pass up on considering how many needs we have. Some might be against trading that future pick as we have done in the past but IMO I have no problem with trading future picks if they are for current draft picks and not overpaid washed up vets. Some might not agree with me but I love the Brandon Harris pick. Carlos Rogers is likely gone, Harris brings everything Carlos does in terms of physicality but he actually is a playmaker. Secondary pretty much is completely set if we could add a guy like him. Mason Foster would step beside London Fletcher as Rocky is likely gone. Hankerson is a guy who I really like. Only question is his deep ball speed but he has made many vertical plays in college and actually ended up being one of the fastest wideouts at the combine. Dontay Moch could develop into an absolute stud opposite of Orakpo and gives our defense more looks instead of right now where teams know Orakpo is the only pass rushing threat. Jarvis Jenkins should be a starter from day 1. Fusco could push Rabach although not in the immediate as the coaching staff loves Rabach. Ian Williams could work his way into the NT rotation and Ray Dominguez is a steal at that point in the draft and is in no way any worst than Stephon Heyer.

First off, great job on this. It must have taken forever. And the writeups for each team at the end is a nice add.

Here is my take on this Pats draft:
New England Patriots
Trades: Trade #5: New England trades(pick #33) to Tennessee for 2012 first round pick
Trade #9: New England Trades(pick #74) to Washington for (pick # 202, 2012 2nd round pick)

17) New England - from Oakland Cameron Heyward/DE/Ohio State
28 ) New England Anthony Costanzo/OT/Boston College
60) New England: Sam Acho/OLB/Texas
92) New England: Andrew Jackson/G/Fresno State
124) New England: Kendall Hunter/RB/Oklahoma State
156) New England: Vincent Brown/WR/San Diego State
188 ) New England: Alex Linnenkohl/C/Oregon State
202) New England(f/Washington) Devon Torrence/CB/Ohio State

Personally, I love it. I think Heyward is a solid pick there at 17 (although I suspect he's going to end up going later than this).

Castonzo not my fave OT but an OT pick in this area is quite possible for the Pats.

Then trading 33 for a first next year, sounds pretty realistic to me (they might try to pry another later pick out of Tennesee).

(Oh, and I actually like that move by Tennessee, sneaking up there to grab Ponder before some of the other QB needy teams get him)

Then taking Acho at 60. Again, this is a move I can totally see them making. I think there is a very strong possibility that they wait on taking an OLB and Acho would be the kind of player I think they would be looking at in this area.

Jackson addresses the need at OG and he could play as a rookie.

Trading a third for a second next year and getting an added late pick is a real possibility. They make these moves every year it seems.

I'm not usually big on mocks that give Hunter to the Pats but if they can get him in round 4 then that's pretty good value.

Not sure how other Pats fans feel about Vincent Brown but I really like the guy, and in round 5 I would love that pick. Oh, and I think it's much more likely that the Pats wait until around this area, round 4 or 5, to take a WR than so many other mocks that have them taking one in round 2 or 3.

Good depth picks with those last two as well.

Overall I would be very happy with this draft for the Pats. No real sexy picks but very good value picks who can play and contribute as rookies, and they set themselves up with more picks for next year as well. Sounds good to me.

Yeah it's kinda why I went with the Tolliver pick late not that it makes up for anything but I did realize that the Chiefs are looking for more of a #2 instead of a slot although I don't think Cobb is restricted solely to the slot.

First off let me say: Holy crap, good write up. Looks time consuming.

Titans fan here, leaving some feedback. Here's what you have for us:

Tennessee Titans
Trades: Trade #5: New England trades(pick #33) to Tennessee for 2012 first round pick

8) Tennessee: Robert Quinn/DE/North Carolina
33) Tennessee(f/New England - from Carolina) Christian Ponder/QB/Florida State
39) Tennessee: Stefen Wisniewski/C/Penn State
77) Tennessee: Deandre McDaniel/SS/Clemson
108 ) Tennessee: Casey Matthews/LB/Oregon
139) Tennessee: Adrian Moten/LB/Maryland
170) Tennessee: David Arkin/G/Missouri State
201) Tennessee: Rob Housler/TE/Florida Atlantic

I really like this mock. Heck, we even get to add in another 4th, for our comp! I think Casey Matthews with our 4th is a litttttle bit of a reach. I think it would be interesting to draft Daniel Thomas with out 4th, get Casey Matthews with out 4th comp. CJ is the only RB and gets pounded, i'd be nice to have a nice 2 RB set to pair with CJ. Daniel Thomas could be just the guy for the job. Robert Quinn is nice, I think i'd rather have JJ Watt though... I really like JJ.

As for the trade; that's a hefty price for Ponder. I mean our 1st could be Top 10 again next year, is Ponder really worth that? Especially when he may be available at our 2nd and if he's not we could get Mallett. Hefty price I think, but a very possible trade.

Minnesota Vikings
Trades:

12) Minnesota: Jake Locker/QB/Washington
43) Minnesota: Allen Bailey/DE/Miami
105) Minnesota: Tyler Sash/S/Iowa
136) Minnesota: Daniel Kilgore/C/G/Appalachian State
147) Minnesota - from New York Giants: Greg Salas/WR/Hawaii
167) Minnesota: Ross Homan/LB/Ohio State
204) Minnesota: Nathan Enderle/QB/Idaho

Quick Thoughts: Note a huge fan of this Vikings mock tbh. I definitely think I filled important needs however I don’t feel like any of the picks are great values other than maybe the Salas pick. #12 was a tough decision to make as Locker was best QB available and I just couldn’t pass on an early QB. Maybe a bit curious taking another QB at the end but Enderle has a ton of upside for a 7th round pick so I’d definitely think he’d be worth keeping and who knows maybe he surprises and ends up the better QB. Sash and Homan are just solid playres. Kilgore could compete for a starting spot in the interior.

I wouldn't really be excited by this, but it definatly isn't a bad Vikings mock. I just have a couple comments...

While I think Allen Bailey is pretty good value and wouldn't be opposed to grabbing him at #43. I just can't see the Vikings passing on Rahim Moore if he is availble there.

Ryan Cook is a free agent, and I can't see the Vikings re-signing him. Aside from Cook they don't really have any OT depth. So they definatly should target a OT somewhere in the draft.

Love the Salas pick, he's a guy I hope the vikes can pick up in the later rounds.

First off, nice work on this. Overall, it looks pretty solid. I just have a few opinions of my favorite teams' picks. First, the Bears;

The first three rounds are great. But I don't see the Bears spending anything more than a late round pick on a running back. And it would be on a big back to compliment Forte, not a small guy. Maybe replace him with Tolliver or Greg Salas. I also doubt the Bears go offensive line three times. Davon House would be more likely, but Barksdale isn't a terrible pick. Overall, a solid Bears draft that I could definitely live with.

As for the Jaguars, I like the trade backs, but they WILL NOT pick Ryan Mallett, even if he is still there in round seven. Gene Smith does not bring in guys with character questions and Mallett has some of the biggest character questions in the draft. They really like Dalton and he or Kaepernick would be a much more likely selection.

Matthew Jones

I wasn't blown away by New England's draft but I could see something like that happening. However, I wonder if teams will be reluctant to trade for future picks with the labor uncertainty. First three picks are very good and I liked Hunter, Brown, and Linnenkohl that late in the draft, but I might prefer someone like a Davon House instead of Andrew Jackson just for value. House is probably going to go in the 2-3 range in this draft so the value is good there, whereas I'm not really sure Jackson would be much of an upgrade over Dan Connolly.

Wow I don't know how a Chargers fan could not like this forecast. I like Houston, I have doubts about him, but I think he is a solid pick. I would have preferred Wilkerson, but the Ballard selection made up for it. Little is the 3rd most intriguing receiver in this draft to me. I love the fit. The character is a question mark and I do not know if AJ Smith will like him. Not the biggest fan of Ziemba, but I think he could be a solid right side protector and definitely could be an upgrade. I might prefer Brewer or Reid as a RT there, but it is really not a huge issue. Jones is another good fit that I like. He and Butler could profile as an athletic interior force if all goes well. Cannot disagree with the reasoning behind the Greg Cooper pick too. Overall, well done sir. Very well done.

Nice Pats mock. I pretty much agreed with every position.
I might have grabbed different players like Solder over Costz and Kirkpatrick over Linnen
but regardless I'd still be content with the players selected.
Only thing i didnt like was the WR pick. If we grab one, it should be a J.Jones or someone that can play right away. No late round projects. We have too many of those on the roster already

Pats needs:

1- OLB
2- OG/C
3- DE
4- OT
5- WR/RB/CB

Essentially help in the trenches and maybe some compliments to the offense and or cb depending on bpa

The Trade is realistic but the trade up is not Mike Brown has a history of not trading away draft picks. Plus Ricky Stanzi is not a West Coast QB. 1 Guard will not cut it for the Bengals they will still need a RG, C, and RT

Steep price to pay for Peterson but I'd probably do it. I like Hudson in the third and Hogue is a guy they are bringing in for a visit. I really like Helu's size/speed combo and he would be a good compliment to Best. Just so you know for future mocks I'm pretty sure the Lions don't have any picks in the 6th or 7th round. The 6th might have gone to Atlanta for Chris Houston or to Seattle for Lawrence Jackson. The 7th was taken for tampering by the league. Great work overall, nice job.

Wow, that looks like an incredible amount of work. nicely done.

i'd be ok with that Vikings mock. With all of the moves being made, i would think that the Vikings would be one of the most willing teams to move down in order to get a 3rd round pick back somewhere.

I don't mean to piss on your parade & maybe i am wrong, but isn't the trading of future draft picks out until the new CBA is established?

Solid Denver draft, but nothing to get excited about. I'm starting to sour on Martez Wilson, as I've heard he has very questionable instincts and racks up a lot of tackles chasing guys down. Sounds like another D.J. Williams to me. My preference would be Mason Foster.

That's my concern as well. We need a defensive leader to man the MLB spot - someone with a real feel for the game. Wilson is going to get overdrafted because he's an athletic freak, but I'm not a fan of his game at all.

Great work. As far as the players are concerned, that is a very realistic Pats mock. A lot of those guys seem like very good fits and you hit most of our biggest needs. I can't see us trading the 33rd pick, however, We love picking at the top part of the second round and I can't see us giving that up. I could see us moving back from 17 or 28, but I can't see 33. You did a great job on this for the Pats though with the players and the trades, it looks good and very realistic.

not thrilled with KC's 2nd and 3rd round picks.Hankerson oer Carpenter and Moch over Cobb.love taylor but we alrady have a Cobb typ in McCluster

I like the Chiefs picks. I'm not sure if McCluster can play in the league. He's so small and I never really saw the explosiveness we were supposed to. Cobb is larger and can do more things. I don't want Moch in any way shape or form. Speed demon is a one trick pony. Hankerson over Carpenter I can understand, but I'm really high on Carpenter and wouldn't be upset with that at all. I like the pick of Matthews late, think he could be a situational pass rusher but I don't think he has the athleticism to turn into a full time OLB in the 34.

New Orleans Saints
Trades: Trade #6: New Orleans trades(pick #24, pick #88) to Cincinnati for (pick #44, pick #66, pick #100)

44) New Orleans(f/Cincinnati(f/Detroit) Corey Liuget/DT/Illinois
56) New Orleans: Bruce Carter/OLB/UNC
66) New Orelans(f/Cincinnati) Pernell Mcphee/DE/Mississippi State
72) New Orleans - from Washington: Marcus Gilchrist/FS/Clemson
100) New Orleans(f/Cincinnati) Will Rackley/G/Lehigh
215) New Orleans: Bilal Powell/RB/Louisville

Quick Thoughts: The reason for the trade down even though the value wasn’t great was that there were a ton of players the Saints could have drafted although not one guy who really stood out. I think Liuget is a nice pick for the future of the team and adds depth on the interior of the D-line. Bruce Carter in the 2nd round could push for a starting spot on either side pretty early on in his career. Will Rackley I think could end up being an absolute gem and is the extra pick from trading down. I believe he can start at RT in the NFL and at worst kick inside. I’m sure the Saints would be hoping he could play RT though. Marcus Gilchrist is an extremely versatile DB who could play FS or corner in some packages. Bilal Powell a few picks from the end of the draft is a real steal and would immediately be promoted to that short distance role.

sorry bro, good work overall but im really not all that high on this saints draft.

saints do need a dt, but more of a nose guy than an UT, we have ellis for that role and he is really really good.
The trade, although acceptable in principle is just mediocre value on the trade chart, at least drop the two later round picks from the trade or something.
saints picks: 740 (24) and 150 (88) = 890
Benglas picks: 460(44) 260(66) and 100(100) =820

but I do love the bilal powell pick
the guys I wouldve chosen at the spots, without the trade (I dont like the trade and it kills a pretty stocked board that the saints have for the first pick to choose from)

1 Adrian Clayborne
2 Bruce Carter
3a Quan Sturdivant
3b Jurrell Casey
7 Bilal Powell

You really made it tough for yourself to do a bad saints draft by making that trade, given that there were about 4-5 good defensive front 7 players on the board when the trade was made the only way I could see the saints trading with the bengals was if the bengals wouldve used their own 2nd rounder

First, you are to be commended for your hard work. Great job! Second, I like that you explained your reasoning for the picks and trades you projected.

That said, I am not a fan of the Saints draft at all. Corey Liuget just is not a good fit for us. If we had kept our first, and he was there in the second and we took him for depth, fine. But to trade back and get a guy who wouldn't start for our team because we already have Sedrick Ellis does not make any sense. We could use a NT and a guy who could eventually start once Shaun Rogers is gone. Corey Liuget does not even offer any schematic versatility to start at NT. He's strictly a 3-technique DT. He would be a wasted pick.

The value in the trade is not good. I cannot believe we are giving up a third when we are moving back 20 spots. Doesn't seem like a trade that benefits us at all.

I think Gilchrist is a reach. We could use a backup safety to Roman Harper but I just think there's better value on the board in some of the spots where we pick.

Also, the Saints under Loomis and Payton do not trade back a lot. Typically, they tend to trade up. I can only think of one or two times they have traded down. Once was with Detroit to get Usama Young in the third. The other was with Philadelphia to get Jahri Evans. Wait, in that same draft, they also traded with Philadelphia to get Hollis Thomas and moved back to get Roman Harper. Both of those drafts were in 2006 and 2007, respectively. Sine that time, they have not traded down and have given up future picks to move up a round to grab a guy they might really like. So, I don't know that they would be keen on trading back even with a dearth of picks.

If I am the Saints, I stay put. I take Adrian Clayborn in round 1, Bruce Carter in round 2. In round 3, I take Quinton Carter and Kenrick Ellis. In round 7, I guess I can live with Powell though the Saints believe in taking at least one offensive lineman in every draft and have done so every year since 2006 except one.

Trade #11: San Francisco trades(pick #138) to Miami for (pick #174, pick #206)

Trade #12: Washington trades(pick # 152) to San Francisco for (pick #169, pick #185) [/i]


I had to laugh at this... The 9ers give up a better pick than the Redskins and got a worse return.

Instead of having the 138, 169 and 185 pick they end up with the 152, 174 and 206 pick... Essentially giving away 14, 5, and 21 draft slots for nothing. Low picks may not follow the value chart as strictly, but that is just dumb.

Man Id hate trading down with aj green on board. especially if we were able to pull off other trade downs later. id be even more upset if we traded down and wasted the pick on hankerson. incredibly inconsistent and limited upside imo. i like harris, although i think a stud NT and/or OLB opposite Orakpo will go farther in helping our secondary than another first round corner. Moch could be that guy so I like that pick but I think with a late 1st and 2 second round picks we would be better off trying to pick up a more dominant DL. Maybe something like Wilkerson then Aaron Williams and Greg Little or if you wanted to stick with Harris then in the 2nd go after Liuget (who I think is more of a first rounder than people give him credit). With all that said, Id even more prefer taking AJ at 10 then trading down in the 2nd. I also think that we'll look to FA and later rounds to fill any void at ILB. Blades and Riley are going to some time in there and I think its a less immediate need compared to ther holes.

Sometimes I wonder if you have been Bunglized yourself. WTF? You want them to draft three lineman? Andre Smith can play RG if he doesn't work out at RT. Center is a need but if you draft Pouncey and you have Smith then there is also Free Agency, which wasn't discussed at all. A safety should be taken with the Stanzi pick but besides that this draft is awsome.

Andre Smith cant play any position because he cant stay healthy enough to play at all i full expect him to end up on IR not even half way thought the season. And honesty if u think are OL is fine u have problems out of the 25 sacks they gave up last year 22 of them the QB has less then 2 secs to throw. The QB should have at least to throw 3 secs and the QB should have gotten rid of the Ball. This OL is not build to pass protect it is built to Run Block and if the Bengals invest in a QB this draft they will have to take 2 or 3 OL because if they do does not matter who they take that QB wont last long in Cincinnati. There will be no FA before the draft so they will have to fix the OL though the draft. No a QB needs to be taken because they will have to bring someone in to compete for the starting job because Levour is not going to cut it and either Palmer is not coming back.

Excellent effort doing all of this. For the Colts, I'd be disappointed if this was how the draft turned out, though. Sherrod is an excellent pick, and Marvin Austin is an intriguing pick, if out of the norm for the Colts, but only 2 OL in the draft, with the second one coming in Round 5? That's not going to work for the Colts since they'll likely need to replace all 5 OL positions by 2012. Jernigan is unnecessary, and while I like the hustle and athleticism of Keo, an OL is a wiser pick in either situation. I think Marcus Gilbert as the Colts 3rd rounder over Jernigan would improve the situation greatly, and would allow for most of the rest to flow, since everything else fits a need, except the final two picks, DE and CB are not needs at all.

3) Buffalo: Cam Newton/QB/Auburn
34) Buffalo: Nate Solder/OT/Colorado
68 ) Buffalo: Cris Carter/OLB/Fresno State
99) Buffalo: Luke Stocker/TE/Tennessee
121) Buffalo - from Seattle: Alex Wujciak/LB/Maryland
130) Buffalo: Martin Parker/DE/Richmond
164) Buffalo: Demarcus Love/OT/Arkansas
195) Buffalo: Virgil Green/TE/Nevada

first off, very good job overall. the Bills mock is good in terms of talent, but there are some issues i'd like to bring up.

Cam Newton in the first is great, ideal pick IMO.

Solder in the second would be great from a value/need standpoint, I just find it hard to believe we wouldn't go defense in the 2nd if we went offense in the first, especially with players like Liuget still on the board.

Cris Carter in the third is my first main issue. Nix has stated publically that we are set at OLB, but that we need ILBs, bigger guys. unless Carter can play ILB in the 3-4, Kelvin Sheppard is much more likely there.

i don't think we'd go with Luke Stocker in the 4th. Gailey rarely uses the TE and i think Mark Herzlich and Jerelle Powe would be much more likely picks, especially with taking Green in the 7th as well. Herzlich would be another ILB candidate, and Powe could seriously help our terrible run defense on a rotation, he's a classic 3-4 NT that we are lacking (short/stout).

no issues with the Alex Wujciak pick in the 4th.

also no issues with Martin Parker in the 5th, but i think Ahmad Black would be a serious consideration for the Bills at that point.

no issues with Demarcus Love in the 6th or Virgil Green in the 7th.
