Moses isn't 3-4 OLB able, or atleast he hasn't shown it.

And for talents sake i hope Revis doesn't get drafted behind McCauley, Cason and Hughes, who.. he's better than all 3.

Moses is extremely agile and athletic. I think he's one of the defensive ends in this draft that can make the switch to rush backer.

I definitely have Revis rated behind McCauley and Cason although he could go ahead of Hughes.

Good Cardinals pick.

Bad, bad Colts pick. We have used way too many Day 1 pick on CB's as of recent to use a first rounder on another.

5. Tennessee Titans :: Ted Ginn Jr. - Wide Receiver - Junior - Ohio St.

Shut down by most of the solid cornerbacks he's faced, I don't think they need a slot WR so badly that they're willing to draft one in the top five.

7. Houston Texans :: Leon Hall - Cornerback - Senior - Michigan

Maybe Landry over Hall, but it could be personal preference.

11. Buffalo Bills :: Brian Brohm - Quarterback - Junior - Louisville

They will probably give JP another year.

13. St. Louis Rams :: LaRon Landry - Safety - Senior - L.S.U.

Too early to replace O.J. Atogwe here. How about Paul Posluszny?

14. Green Bay Packers :: Marshawn Lynch - Runningback - Junior - California

Defense is a bigger concern in my opinion, and Michael Griffin would fit in nicely.

24. New England Patriots :: Jeff Samardzija - Wide Receiver - Senior - Notre Dame

Good pick if he was going to drop baseball, but I don't think he will, so I wouldn't touch him until the second round.

25. New Orleans Saints :: Rufus Alexander - Outside Linebacker - Senior - Oklahoma

Secondary help is probably their biggest need, or at least it was when I asked some Saints fans a week or two ago.

26. New England Patriots :: Buster Davis - Inside Linebacker - Senior - Florida St.

I'm a Patriots fan, and I hated this pick. Too small, not good enough at taking on blockers, and he's not a natural ILB, nor has he actually played in a 3-4 to my knowledge.

28. Baltimore Ravens :: Michael Bush - Runningback - Junior - Louisville

Why would they draft a power back to back up Jamal Lewis? They just gave him a new deal, they're not going to pull the plug that soon.

29. San Diego Chargers :: H.B. Blades - Inside Linebacker - Senior - Pittsburgh

Again, not a great fit in a 3-4 defense, although Donnie Edwards is playing in their D right now, so it could be alright.

31. Chicago Bears :: Brandon Merriweather - Safety - Junior - Miami

Hopefully Lovie Smith is smart enough to not draft a punk in the first round. Meriweather isn't a first-round pick right now and outside linebacker might be the best way to go with Briggs' contract situation.

32. Indianapolis Colts :: Daymeion Hughes - Cornerback - Senior - California

Colts fans are going to want Aaron Rouse (although he's not really a first round talent.) Linebacker or guard, probably.

we probably wont take Jamals option so he may be a FA, I dis like the Bush pick because we need a RT/RG/CB more then a RB.

YeS!!! Finally a mock that has Ted Ginn as a top 5 pick.... he will keep rising until draftday

kenny irons would be better as he won't be coming off injury.

29. San Diego Chargers :: H.B. Blades - Inside Linebacker - Senior - Pittsburgh

Blades? don't like the pick. I'd rather take Blalock there and pick up harris in the 2nd. just my opinion though. :D

love the panthers pick, by the way.

28. Baltimore Ravens :: Michael Bush - Runningback - Junior - Louisville

kenny irons would be better as he won't be coming off injury.

That remains to be seen until later in the process. I think Bush will impress in the combine. He has very good triangle numbers and is one of the best athletes in the draft.

I didn't really like the Colts pick but I couldn't find another pick that made more sense. Thus, that was the pick I made.

I haven't seen anything that would indicate to me that the Lions won't draft Quinn if given the chance. The quarterback situation is a mess and needs a fresh start.

I can definitely see Ginn going Top 10, even Top 5. I think if Calvin Johnson doesn't enter the draft Ginn will be a lock for very early in the draft.

I try, and I try, but I can't get the point across.

Linebacker is not an early-round NEED for the Jaguars, AS OF NOW.

Peterson will be coming back next year, and he'll be taking over the team's weakside linebacker spot--- Daryl Smith has initiated a hostile takeover of the team's middle linebacker position. At the weakside, he'll still be able to move from sideline to sideline and move in space, making plays.

Clint Ingram has been playing at Daryl Smith's vacated spot ever since Peterson was injured, and has been playing very well. If he keeps his level of play up, he's definately keeping the starting job.

Needs for the Jaguars:

1. Safety (Very little depth, one safety is aging, other an unrestricted free agent)
2. Defensive End (#1 DE coming off achilles injury, #2 very limitted pure pass-rusher, #3 aging, was never that good to begin with)
3. Quarterback? (This may jump to need number 1 if the quarterback controversy doesn't resolve itself)
4. Linebacker (Mid-round pick to develop behind aging Peterson)
5. Running Back (A player to place in the rotation with Maurice Jones-Drew and Greg Jones, especially if Fred Taylor doesn't remain with the team)
5. Interior Offensive Line (Some players are aging)

I still believe that the Jaguars linebacker unit is lacking in both talent and depth. Also, Posluzsny is a very good value at that point.

Titans would go with Leon Hall instead of Ginn which is way too early for him to be picked there. As for the Colts, they need either a LB or a DT with the 1st pick. Im not so high on Hughes anyhow.

Titans need help on offence. Their defence has a ton of young talent that needs to develop before they bring more rookies in. Ginn could easily be a Top 10 pick and could shoot even higher with a good combine.

But Reynaldo Hill is arguably the worst starter in the NFL.

I keep seeing Marshawn Lynch as the Packers pick and don't much care for it. We should be drafting a running back in the area that Denver drafts RBs, which is not in the first round. We also have Morency on the roster and we have more than enough cap room to get Ahman Green back, which with a year of slat in the o-line, means he'll be coming back to a better situation than he started with this year.

At 14, I'd prefer Cason. The Packers are #11 in rushing, but #32 in pass defense. They need to bring in whatever FA or draft picks get the pass defense solved. To me that means at least a CB and a pass covering SS. Maybe Underwood coming back solves the SS, but they still need a CB most, IMO.

I'm excited for Joe Thomas to have the opportunity to be the #1 pick.

That is true but I don't think slotting in another rookie beside Pacman Jones is the answer to that problem. The Titans might want to take a project a bit later but they need a veteran on defence if they want to see any improvement.

I definitely see offence as a bigger need at this point because Vince Young simply has nobody to throw to.

I think it's a 3-position toss up for the Packers 1st round pick right now. It could be either wide receiver, running back, or cornerback. I like the idea of adding a franchise runningback because the Packers offence is going to take a big hit in the coming years. They have some solid young talent on defence but they're still missing a lot of pieces on the offence. Denver may be able to get away with using subpar backs but let's remember how dominant the run game was when they had Clinton Portis. A good runningback still means a great deal, especially when they're versatile and can be used in the passing game like Lynch can be. That said, cornerback is a definite possibility.

Givens just got signed to a decent sized contract and they do have Drew Bennett who is going to be a FA but may be resigned, and they have a lot of young guys, Jones, Roby, Wade, Williams.

I still believe that the Jaguars linebacker unit is lacking in both talent and depth. Also, Posluzsny is a very good value at that point.They're deep enough to be able to sustain a season-ending injury to one of the 4 best MLBs in the league and still be one of the best defenses in the league, while still having an active linebacking corps that avoids letting up too many big plays.

They're talented enough to have 3 starters (by next year--- Peterson, Smith, Ingram) who run sub-4.6 40s, while still not being undersized.

We need to build depth and develop a FUTURE STARTER. But we don't need a guy RIGHT NOW, which is what the first two rounds are for.

This may be along the lines of the "Andy Reid never drafts a first round RB"..


I did some research, and out of all the Linebackers... since 1982, only 1 was taken round 1. And he sucked.

YeS!!! Finally a mock that has Ted Ginn as a top 5 pick.... he will keep rising until draftday
He will run an amazing time at the combine and every team will go nuts and he will go real high. That's my prediction.

Overall great mock. Although I hate seeing the Lions drafting Brady Quinn I have gotten used to it. One of the better mocks I have seen.
