View Full Version : xpmar9x's FINAL Mock Draft

04-23-2011, 05:06 PM
I posted my final mock draft a couple of days ago, but it was all wacked up. So I re-did it all, and just finished it. Feedback plz!

1st Round:

1. Carolina - AJ Green, WR, UGA
No Cam? No Dareus? AJ Green would be a great selection here. Clausen was just a second round pick last year, and was projected 1st. I don't believe the Panthers should just give up on him after a year. Even though he was horrible last year, I personally believe he deserves ONE more year. Very few QBs come in and dominate Year 1. If Clausen can't produce with the Panthers RBs and Steve Smith/AJ Green combo, then in the 2012 Draft go QB. It's likely if Clausen sucks the Panthers will suck, which means Luck is very possible is 2012.

2. Broncos - Marcel Darues, DT, Alabama
Pretty much a no brainer. Broncos need DT help, and Dareus is a physical freak. That 2nd overall DT worked pretty well last year... maybe the Broncos will hit the Jackpot like the Lions did with Suh.

3. Bills - Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
Bills need a superstar, someone to put Buffalo on the map. With Spiller and Stevie Johnson the Bills could potentially have a deadly offense. Fitzpatrick is still there and could start a year if they want Cam to sit a year or two. Or they could look to trade Fitzpatrick, he'd get some interest for some teams.

4. Bengals - Blaine Gabbert, QB, Mizzou
Mike Brown is going to realize Palmer is not coming back, and he's not bluffing. Since AJ is off the board, they should go Gabbert. I don't see them reaching on Julio, but it's possible. No other player makes sense here.

5. Cardinals - Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M
PP vs Von, tough choice for the Cardinals. I think they'll opt for Von; Porters days are numbered and Haggans isn't anything great. Atleast they have DRC currently in there backfield.

6. Browns - Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
Fairley was a potential #1 pick last two months ago, now he's falling. Personally, I think he's just what the Browns need with their new 4-3 Defense. Robert Quinn is also an option here.

7. 49ers - Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
Doesn't get much better than this for the 49ers. Their #2 need is CB (QB #1), and PP is the #1 overall player on my big board; and he fell to 7!

8. Titans - Jake Locker, QB, Washington
More and more buzz about Jake Locker to Tennessee. And if this is how the draft falls, it makes sense. The only other players I could see the Titans wanting is Robert Quinn or possibly Julio Jones. But, the Titans need a QB.. bad. Jake Locker has the leadership the Titans need to lead their offesne, just needs to work on that accuracy.

9. Cowboys - Tyron Smith, OT, USC
Cowboys could opt for a DT or Prince Amukamara here. But Tyron could potentially be a superstar OT. He's perfect for the Cowboys and could sit a year or two, then come in an shine. I also would be shocked if JJ Watt, Jordan, or Prince get drafted here.

10. Redskins - Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
I don't think the Redskins like Mallett or any other QB this early. Since the Titans took the Redskins QB, Julio makes sense. Besides Santana Moss, whos getting old, the Redskins have no receivers. Julio will help any QB that is leading the Skins.

11. Texans - Robert Quinn, DE/OLB, UNC
I'm not exactly sure how the Texans are going to set up their 3-4. Regardless another pass rusher never hurts.

12. Vikings - Cameron Jordan, DT/DE, California
Jordan is an interesting fit for the Vikings. After an amazing Senior Bowl his stock was flying high, not he's started to cool off. In a 4-3, he could play DE or DT, which makes him great for the Vikings. Having the flexibility to play behind the Williams wall, or possibly start if Ray Edwards leaves in FA is great for the Vikes.

13. Lions - Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
Great, great, great pick for the Lions. They have a HUGE need at corner, Prince is the perfect fit for the Lions.

14. Rams - Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson
Bowers "mystery knee" cost him the #1 overall spot possibly. The Rams take a risk here and draft Bowers. If his knee is healthy, and stays healthy he could be the steal of the draft. Pair him up with Chris Long and they could have a lethal combo.

15. Dolphins - Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
Rumor has it that the Dolphins are obsessed with Ryan Mallett. Mallett could start year one, and should be a good battle Mallett vs Henne for the starting spot.

16. Jaguars - Rahim Moore, FS, UCLA
Iíll be the first to say that Moore is a big reach. But, I also think that the Jaguars biggest need is FS. Jaguars reach on players they like (like Alualu) etc, most mocks have the Jaguars going DL, but I donít see them going DL again this year (just like í10 and í08). They have a solid DL Rotation: Harvey, Kampman, Lane, Mincey, Alualu, and Knighton I donít think an early DE/DT is needed). Greene played solid, and Moore will compliment him well. Jags take biggest need, and not best available.

17. Patriots - J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin
Patriots have a hard choice: Watt, Smith, or Kerrigan. Iím a big fan of JJ Watt and I think heíll be a monster 34 DE, which is exactly what the Patriots need. Heís very hard working and seems like a perfect Belichick player.

18. Chargers - Aldon Smith, OLB, Mizzou
J.J. Watt was the perfect fit for the Chargers, but he went the pick before. I donít see any other 34 DEs really worth the #18 pick. Instead the Chargers opt for a pass rusher and land Aldon Smith. Aldon can give the pass rusher the Chargers need. Wilkerson would be interesting here as well, but Aldon Smiths talent is too good to pass up.

19. Giants - Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA
Giants have a huge need at LB. Bulluck probably wonít be returning, if he does it will probably be his last year. Boley is playing alright, but nothing amazing. They also have a pretty big hole at ILB. Ayers is working his way back up the draft board, and would be a solid pick for the Giants. It will be hard for th Giants to pass on Castonzo here.

20. Bucs - Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
Great pick by the Bucs. Kerrigan is the DE that the Buccaneers needs, heís a sack machine.

21. Chiefs - Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
Tyson , Dorsey, and Taylor is a solid front 7. Taylor is a big NT, and fits what the Chiefs need.

22. Colts - Anthony Castonzo, OT, BC
Simple for the Colts, protect Peyton Manning. Great value pick at #22.

23. Eagles - Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
Hobbs career could be over, if not Smith is still a great pickup for the Eagles.

24. Saints - Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois
Really the Saints donít have any HUGE needs, but their D-Line could always use help. Liuget is a great talent and would be a solid fit for the Saints.

25. Seahawks - Christian Ponder, QB, Florida St
4 QBs off the board by #15, the Seahawks are starting to get worried. They realize if they want a QB, nowís the time at #25. Ponder would be an elite QB, if he could just stay healthy. Hasselbeck may not return, so a QB is a big need.

26. Ravens - Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
Derrick Mason will probably retire, like he tried to last year. Housh and Stallworth were not anything amazing. Boldin needs another receiver to compliment him, Torrey Smith is just the guy to do that.

27. Falcons - Jabaal Sheard, DE, Pittsburgh
Falcons really need a DE, Sheard is an underrated prospect and a solid fit for the 4-3 of the Falcons.

28. Patriots - Brooks Reed, OLB, Arizona
Reed is starting to move up the boards. After the Pats got a DE with their 1st, they need to go OLB now. Reed is just what the Pats need, I donít love Houston.

29. Bears - Mike Pouncey, OG, Florida
Hopefully this Pouncey plays like his brother, that would be a huge upgrade for the Bears.

30. Jets - Muhammad Wilkerson, DE, Temple
Jets need a pass rusher, but they might be scared of Gholston v2.0. Iím not a big fan of Houston, so I think the Jets take the smarter pick in Wilkerson. Not a sexy pick, but he gets the job done.

31. Steelers - Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
McFadden is horrible and the Steelers need a new #2 CB bad. There are some legit OL on the board, but I think they would prefer CB over OT.

32. Packers - Danny Watkins, OG, Baylor
Packers will need a starting LG, Colledge will probably leave. Watkins could start week 1.

2nd Round:
33. Patriots - Derek Sherrod, OT, Miss St.
Improving the O-Line is always nice

34. Bills - Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin
Again, improving the O-Line is always nice, get a blocker for Cam/Spiller.

35. Bengals - Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
Bye bye Benson, Ingram and Gabbert are the new franchise faces of the Bengals.

36. Broncos - Aaron Williams, CB/S, Texas
Aaron William can play CB or possibly safety, both positions the Broncos could use, solid pickup.

37. Browns - Martez Wilson, LB, Illinois
Browns are switching to the 43 and need LB help, Martez is athletic enough to play 4-3 OLB or MLB.

38. Cardinals - Benjamin Ijalana, OG/T, Villanova
Cardinals OL is terrible. Iíve seen Ijalana listed as OG and OT, so his versatility will be nice. No QB here, Iím a firm believer that they will have Bulger or Kolb as their starting QB next year.

39. Titans - Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon St
Great value at 39, allow Jason Jones to switch to DE if needed.

40. Cowboys - Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio St
Cowboys opted not to go DE with their 1st, luckily they had a good talented player fall to them in the 2nd.

41. Redskins - Andy Dalton, QB, TCU
Is it legal for a ginger to play in the NFL? Redskins need a QB, bad.

42. Texans - Ras-I Dowling, CB, UVA
Texans had the worst secondary last yearÖ worst in history. Ras-I will provide another CB option for them, their first pick last year (Jackson) and Dowling could produce a decent secondary.

43. Vikings - DeAndre McDaniel, S, Clemson
Vikings need some help in their secondary as well. McDaniel could start for them, reminds me of a slower TJ Ward.

44. Lions - Bruce Carter, OLB, UNC
Lions donít have any elite LBs, and release Julian Peterson. Carter, is 100% healthy could be a monster.

45. 49ers - Justin Houston, OLB, UGA
A pass rusher for the 49ers would be nice.

46. Broncos - Kyle Rudolph, TE, Norte Dame
Rudolph will fit in nicely with the new broncos offensive system.

47. Rams - Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami
Rams need a legit #1 WR, Hankerson could potentially be that guy.

48. Raiders - Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada
Jason Campbell didnít wow me or Al Davis last year. They struggled at QB all year, Kaepernick is a ďRaiders-typeĒ of player.

49. Jaguars - Christian Ballard, DE, Iowa
Solid 2nd round selection as they opted not to go DL rd1.

50. Chargers - Jon Baldwin, WR, Pitt
Big play WR for Rivers.

51. Bucs - Mikel LeShoure, RB, Illinois
Sure you have Blount, but heís not really any every down back. LeShoure + Blount could be deadly for years. Cadillac Williams doesnít wow me anymore.

52. Giants - Marcus Cannon, OT, TCU
Solid selection and improving that OL for Eli.

53. Colts - Marvin Austin, DT, UNC
Beefing up the DL, aint nothing wrong with that.

54. Eagles - Rodney Hudson, G, Florida St
Adding depth/potential starter on the OL.

55. Chiefs - Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky
Chiefs need a #2 WR to pair with Bowe, Cobb could be that guy.

56. Saints - Mason Foster, OLB, Washington
Foster is underrated and could be a great LB.

57. Seahawks - Stefan Wisniewski, C, Penn St
Wisniewski can play G or C, which is exactly what the Seahawks need.

58. Ravens - Davon House, CB, New Mexico
Ravens have a lot of average CBs, but no superstar. House will add competition to the Ravens secondary.

59. Atlanta - Jerrel Jernigan, WR, Troy
Falcons need a #2 WR to pair with Roddy, Jernigan could be that guy.

60. Patriots - DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma
DeMarco over Ryan Williams? Yep. DeMarco is a good receiving RB, which is something the Patriots love.

61. Chargers Ė Allen Bailey, DE, Miami
Chargers finally draft their biggest need: DE.

62. Bears - Drake Nevis, DT, LSU
Tommie Harris was released, Nevis can fill that voidÖ maybe.

63. Steelers - James Carpenter, OT, Alabama
We all love to see Big Ben get sacked, but the Steelers donít.

64. Green Bay Ė Sam Acho, OLB, Texas
Clay needs an additional pass rusher.

Moore and Ballard is about as bad as it can get for the Jags

04-23-2011, 05:12 PM
Moore and Ballard is about as bad as it can get for the Jags

Yeah.. but who cares about the Jaguars :)

But seriously, it fit's there needs IMO.

04-23-2011, 05:14 PM
Watt, Kerrigan, Pouncey, Ponder would of all been a better first round pick.

04-23-2011, 05:19 PM
Excellent 49ers draft.Only down is no QB so it waits until 4th round in Stanzi most likely.

04-23-2011, 05:22 PM
Terrible Ravens picks. Both guys are reaches at those spots, House especially. He's pretty much the epitome of "average."

04-23-2011, 05:30 PM
Not a fan of passing on Amukamara.

04-23-2011, 05:33 PM
I know we need a WR but give us Wis in the 2nd.KC needs a C as bad as they need a WR plus Weigman is probably gonna retire

04-23-2011, 05:43 PM
love the watt and murray picks for the patriots. no way does pouncey fall that far, and i highly doubt the patriots would pass him up at 28. they'd snatch him up very quickly if he did imo

Pat Sims 90
04-23-2011, 06:20 PM
Don't see Mike Brown taking a QB in the 1st with him still thinking that Carson is bluffing.

04-23-2011, 08:34 PM
With this being a draft that is rich with DL prospects, expect Denver to take full advantage of that. Don't be surprised if they go front-seven with the first 3, or even 4 picks. Dareus / Heyward / Ballard would be ideal in your scenario.

04-23-2011, 08:48 PM
Corey Luiget is one of the most overrated players in this draft. I see a guy rising like Peria Jerry and failing to live up to his billing like, well, Peria Jerry.

If your desire is to go defense for the Saints, go with Adrian Clayborn, who I do not see at all. A second choice, Cam Heyward.

If you go offense, Mark Ingram with Gabe Carimi being a possible second choice.

04-23-2011, 08:53 PM
Perfect Bears picks

04-23-2011, 10:26 PM
PP and Houston is a nice defensive haul
