Draft order is based on ESPN's week two power rankings. I was sort of in a hurry with this one and think it could be a little better as far as the second half of the first round goes, but let me know what you think!

RavenOfProphecy's September 16th Mock Draft!

1. Cleveland Browns – QB Andrew Luck, Stanford
If the Browns pick #1, moving on from Colt McCoy to Andrew Luck is a no-brainer.

2. Seattle Seahawks – QB Matt Barkley, Southern California
Pete Carroll gets to add a former Trojan as his franchise quarterback.

3. Cincinnati Bengals – DE Quinton Coples, North Carolina
Defensive end is a more valuable position than running back or corner. Possibly QB.

4. Carolina Panthers – WR Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina
Steve Smith looks rejuvenated but the Panthers could still use a stud opposite him.

5. Denver Broncos – CB Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama
Champ Bailey has been able to maintain his level of play but another CB is needed.

6. Buffalo Bills – OT Matt Kalil, Southern California
Potential franchise left-tackle, which the Bills have been trying to find for years.

7. Miami Dolphins – QB Landry Jones, Oklahoma
Henne looks good so far, but if the Dolphins pick in the top 10, they’ll look for a QB.

8. Tennessee Titans – WR Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma St.
Aside from Johnson/Britt, the Titans are severely lacking in weapons on offense.

9. Minnesota Vikings – OT Jonathan Martin, Stanford
After cutting Bryant McKinnie, the Vikings need to add a new left tackle ASAP.

10. Indianapolis Colts – RB Trent Richardson, Alabama
Would take a lot of pressure off of Peyton Manning and the Colts’ passing game.

11. San Francisco 49ers – OT Riley Reiff, Iowa
Anthony Davis has been a huge disappointment and the 49ers need to upgrade.

12. Kansas City Chiefs – LB Courtney Upshaw, Alabama
Stud pass rusher out of Nick Saban’s football factory, already has OLB experience.

13. St. Louis Rams – LB Manti Te’o, Notre Dame
The Rams tried and failed to address OLB this offseason, Te’o fits the bill.

14. Washington Redskins – WR Jeff Fuller, Texas A&M
Good fit for Mike Shanahan’s WCO, adds size where the Redskins lack it.

15. Oakland Raiders – LB Bruce Irvin, West Virginia
Probably a reach but is a good fit because of his speed and blitzing ability.

16. New York Giants – LB Luke Kuechly, Boston College
LB has been a need for a long time – the BC connection gives Kuechly the edge.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars – DE Jared Crick, Nebraska
Jaguars need to add defensive ends – Crick is a big, high-character senior.

18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – CB Stephon Gilmore, South Carolina
Extremely athletic and should lock down #2 CB spot as long as Rhodes doesn’t declare.

19. Dallas Cowboys – CB Chase Minnifield, Virginia
No safety value on the board but the Cowboys can still land a quality young corner.

20. Detroit Lions – CB Alfonzo Dennard, Nebraska
The run on CBs continues - Schwartz prefers his cornerbacks to be physical.

21. Arizona Cardinals – DE Devin Taylor, South Carolina
Extensive experience dropping into coverage gives him the edge over Paige-Moss.

22. Cleveland Browns (from Falcons) – DE Donte Paige-Moss, North Carolina
Browns drafted Sheard to play LE, Paige-Moss projects more naturally to right side.

23. Houston Texans - WR Michael Floyd, Notre Dame
A steal at this point in the draft even with character concerns – perfect alongside Andre.

24. San Diego Chargers – DE Brandon Jenkins, Florida St.
Good value and the Chargers are running out of patience with Larry English.

25. Pittsburgh Steelers – OG David DeCastro, Stanford
Rumor has it Steelers were targeting Mike Pouncey last year, could look OL again.

26. Chicago Bears – OT Andrew Datko, Florida St.
Very athletic and would be a good fit at LT for Mike Martz’s spread assignments.

27. New England Patriots (from Saints) – DE Vinny Curry, Marshall
Now that they’re using a 4-3 base, projecting pass rushers isn’t quite as difficult.

28. New York Jets – OG Cordy Glenn, Georgia
Jets are not pleased with DuCasse so far and look to add another big, physical blocker.

29. Baltimore Ravens – LB Vontaze Burfict, Arizona St.
Could be extremely scary working as Ray Lewis’ understudy in Baltimore.

30. Philadelphia Eagles – DT Jerel Worthy, Michigan St.
Andy Reid loves drafting linemen, and Worthy this late in the round could be a steal.

31. New England Patriots – WR Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma
Branch expires at the end of the year, and Ochocinco isn’t a long-term answer.

32. Green Bay Packers – RB Lamar Miller, Miami (FL)
Would add another dimension to the Packers’ offensive as Starks’ compliment.

OLB isn't a big need for us now.. Justin Houston was just promoted to first team opposite Tamba.. but we could use a stud ILB like Taze to replace Belcher.

i dont know why you say fullers a great fit for the WCO considering his biggest weakness is probably his ability to make plays after the catch. not crazy about taking him that high with his inconsistencies and average athleticism. id rather have gilmore at corner or Luke Kuechly who could be a sweet ILB replacement for fletcher.

09-16-2011, 10:40 AM
DeCastro is my ideal pick.

09-16-2011, 10:48 AM
Good pick for Baltimore. ILB is the biggest need on defense going forward and getting Burfict would be great, no matter if we want to groom him to be Lewis' replacement or to just play alongside of him.

Love the Miller Time pick to GB, he appears to be the perfect fit when you think they go with RB

Pat Sims 90

The Bengals have 2 solid pass rushing DEs right now that Michael Johnson is finally coming on and we have some decent backups. Give the Bengals Kirkpatrick because outside of Leon Hall we really have nothing at CB.

Curry is a nice pick and Broyles is OK but I think I'd prefer Fuller if they went WR. I also think the Pats should look at OC because Koppen is at the end of his career and seriously hurt and Connolly probably isn't the long term answer.

Interesting putting Glenn to the Jets. Do you think they try him at OT like they did with Ducasse? Because he has struggled there so far this year and would be a much better OG in the pros

Love the Miller Time pick to GB, he appears to be the perfect fit when you think they go with RB

the Packers won't be investing a first round pick in a RB...Starks is a capable starter and they drafted Alex Green, who fits the offense well.

The team needs to look to their front seven on defense

I dig Martin.

09-17-2011, 04:48 PM
I hope we wouldn't pass on Burfict if he fell to us which I highly doubt.

I love Jerel Worthy <3
