View Full Version : Day One Mock -- FINAL

04-28-2007, 01:39 AM
OAK QB JaMarcus Russell
DET WR Calvin Johnson
CLE OT Joe Thomas
TB DE Gaines Adams
ARI OT Levi Brown
WAS DT Amobi Okoye
MIN DE Adam Carriker
ATL S LaRon Landry

With the quality of 2nd/3rd round QBs, Cleveland opts to take the best OT prospect in the draft. Without a need at QB, Arizona takes Brown who has worked his way up into the 5-10 range. Minnesota would likely trade down in the scenario.

MIA QB Brady Quinn
HOU RB Adrian Peterson
SF ILB Patrick Willis
BUF OLB Paul Pozluzny
STL CB Darrelle Revis
CAR S Reggie Nelson
PIT CB Leon Hall
GB TE Greg Olsen

Miami and Houston jump for joy as they both land BPA in a dream scenario. San Fran loves Willis, and Buffalo has to settle for Poz, whom the like almost as much as Willis. Green Bay passes on Lynch, who might have picked up a Pacman-like rep.

JAC DE Jamaal Anderson
CIN DT Alan Branch
TEN WR Ted Ginn Jr.
NYG OT Joe Staley
DEN DE Jarvis Moss
DAL WR Dwayne Jarrett
KC WR Robert Meachem
NE OLB Jon Beason

Cincy lands its dream player as Branch tumbles to 18. Tennessee needs a RB, but they definitely don't want a potential headcase after having to endure Pacman. New England could very well take a safety here, but with two solid ones on the board they should target Beason.

NYJ CB Aaron Ross
PHI S Michael Griffin
NO DT Justin Harrell
NE S Brandon Meriweather
BAL OLB Lawrence Timmons
SD WR Dwayne Bowe
CHI RB Marshawn Lynch
IND OG Ben Grubbs

Very good talent to be had at the end of the round, so there could be a lot of teams wanting to trade up from the beginning of the second, especially with Lynch falling. We could also see a team trade up to here targeting a QB.

OAK OT Tony Ugoh
DET ILB David Harris
TB WR Anthony Gonzalez
CLE QB Trent Edwards
CHI WR Steve Smith
ARI CB Chris Houston
ATL DE Anthony Spencer
MIA OG Justin Blalock

Cleveland should be happy picking up Edwards here if they can. Chicago adds another offensive playmaker. Houston has had a very up-and-down offseason, and he slips out of the first round to go to Arizona.

MIN WR Sidney Rice
SF C Ryan Kalil
BUF RB Brian Leonard
ATL CB Eric Wright
CAR TE Zach Miller
PIT DE Ray McDonald
GB RB Kenny Irons
JAC S Eric Weddle

Buffalo gets their man to carry the ball in Leonard. If they acquire another RB, they can shift him around. After passing on Olsen, Carolina picks up their TE. Green Bay should be very happy to land Irons.

CIN CB Marcus McCauley
TEN CB Josh Wilson
NYG CB Tanard Jackson
STL DE Charles Johnson
DAL CB Daymeion Hughes
KC DT Turk McBride
SEA OT Arron Sears
DEN S Aaron Rouse

Cornerback run in the middle of the 2nd round. Seattle is probably targeting TE Miller, but with him off the board they have to settle for OL help. Rouse is the type of player a team like Denver will take a little early but have pay off in a big way.

PHI DE Tim Crowder
NO OLB Justin Durant
NYJ TE Ben Petrick
MIA DT DeMarcus Tyler
BAL OT Ryan Harris
SD ILB Brandon Siler
NYJ OLB Stewart Bradley
TB DT Quinn Pitcock

Small school players Durant and Petrick find homes in the middle of the second. Bradley is an excellent selection for the Jets, a player they can move inside in the 3-4 and outside in the 4-3.

OAK WR Jason Hill
DET QB John Beck
CLE RB Michael Bush
TB S Josh Gattis
ARI OLB Quincy Black
DEN OT James Marten
MIA CB Fred Bennett
MIN QB Drew Stanton

There's a good chance Bush is off the board in the 2nd, but if he falls don't expect him to last too long into the 3rd. Detroit and Minnesota add QBs here with the hope of finding their long term answer at the position.

HOU WR Craig Davis
BUF CB Michael Coe
ATL K Mason Crosby
SF DE Quentin Moses
PIT DE Ikaika Alama-Francis
GB WR Aundrae Allison
JAC QB Kevin Kolb
TEN RB Antonio Pittman

It's very possible Crosby goes in the 2nd, but Atlanta should be happy to have him here. Both Moses and Alama-Francis are rush backer types. Jacksonville takes the last of the 2nd tier QBs while Tennessee brings in competition for LenDale.

NYG OLB Rufus Alexander
STL DT Ryan McBean
CAR ILB Buster Davis
KC DE Brian Robison
SEA OG Marshal Yanda
DEN WR Johnnie Lee Higgins
DAL CB Jonathan Wade
NO TE Matt Spaeth

Alexander was a big-time prospect coming into the year, and if he can shake 2006 off the Giants will have found an excellent starter at the end of Day One. I wouldn't be surprised to see Seattle trade back to the 4th round to add a few extra picks.

NYJ WR Jacoby Jones
PHI RB Chris Henry
NE DE Lamarr Woodley
BUF ILB Anthony Waters
SD S Sabby Piscitelli
CHI DT Brandon Mebane
IND DT Marcus Thomas
SD DT Paul Soliai
SF RB Tony Hunt
IND ILB H.B. Blades
OAK C Samson Satele

Henry gives the Eagles a big guy to complement Westbrook, as they can't rely on the health of C-Buck much longer. Woodley should definitely be gone by this point. Guys like Mebane, Satele and Piscitelli are very good values. If they are still on the board for pick 100, look for them to be some of the first names called on Sunday.

thats a poor layout for a mock i think

04-28-2007, 03:20 AM
Your 2nd round Buc picks are less than satisfactory.

04-28-2007, 07:51 AM
I guarantee the bears wont take Lynch. they dont need a RB that high.

Love the Patriots draft!

04-28-2007, 08:22 AM
I like the Detroit mock . . . assuming we can't deal out of #2.

04-28-2007, 08:27 AM
perfect first 2 rounds for the Lions, not a fan of the 3rd though.

04-28-2007, 08:55 AM
I really like the Eagles first two picks in this situation. I would go with Anthony Waters for us in the third though.

04-28-2007, 09:07 AM
KC would take Sears if he was on the board in the 2nd
