  • New Mock Draft on NFL.com - Bucky Brooks

    I just wanted to share some thoughts on the Bucky Brooks' Mock Draft, which I found pretty shocking:

    - Sam Bradford picked at #26 by the Cardinals
    - No Jimmy Clausen in the first round
    - Eric Berry out of the top ten
    - JPP at #3
    - Trent Williams at #5 ahead of Bulaga and Davis
    - Navarro Bowman to the Falcons and Kyle Wilson to the Jets

    Here is the complete Mock Draft:

    1. St. Louis Rams
    Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
    The battle for the top spot could come down to Gerald McCoy and Suh, despite the team's quarterback woes. While McCoy has his fair share of supporters within the building, Suh's dominant run skills make him the Rams' choice.

    2. Detroit Lions
    Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
    Landing a dominant interior rusher is not a bad consolation prize for the Lions.

    3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
    Coach Raheem Morris is desperate to find a difference-maker along the defensive line, and he opts for the most dynamic pass rusher available in the draft to key the Buccaneers' defensive resurgence.

    4. Washington Redskins
    Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
    With Chris Samuels uncertain to return following his potential career-ending neck injury, Mike Shanahan tabs Okung to protect Jason Campbell's blindside.

    5. Kansas City Chiefs
    Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
    Williams spent his senior season manning the left side of the Sooners' line, but if the Chiefs take him here, coach Todd Haley will return him to his natural right tackle position.

    6. Seattle Seahawks
    Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
    Pete Carroll immediately addresses the Seahawks' anemic pass rush by taking a dominant edge player with the team's top pick.

    7. Cleveland Browns
    Joe Haden, CB, Florida
    The Browns need to add star power in the back end of the secondary, and Haden gives them a top-flight corner to pair with CB Eric Wright.

    8. Oakland Raiders
    Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
    The ultra-athletic Davis answers the team's glaring weakness at offensive tackle.

    9. Buffalo Bills
    Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
    Chan Gailey will think long and hard about taking QB Sam Bradford with this pick, but the team's woeful offensive line needs a franchise-caliber tackle on the left side.

    10. Jacksonville Jaguars
    Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida
    After registering only 14 sacks, the Jaguars turn to Dunlap to upgrade their non-existent pass rush.

    11. Denver Broncos
    Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
    If the Broncos part ways with Brandon Marshall, it would create a huge void in the passing game, one that Bryant could fill.

    12. Miami Dolphins
    Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas
    Joey Porter's eventual release and Jason Taylor's uncertain status makes acquiring a top-edge rusher like Kindle a must for the Dolphins.

    13. San Francisco 49ers
    Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
    Berry's ball-hawking skills are a welcome addition in the middle of the 49ers' emerging defense.

    14. Seattle Seahawks
    C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson
    Spiller's speed and explosiveness gives the Seahawks a much-needed difference maker in the backfield to alleviate pressure on Matt Hasselbeck.

    15. N.Y. Giants
    Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama
    The release of Antonio Pierce creates a huge hole in the middle of the Giants defense. However, McClain's playmaking ability and leadership skills should fill the void created by the loss of the former defensive captain.

    16. San Francisco 49ers
    Mike Iupati, OG/OT, Idaho
    The former Vandal has shot up draft boards after dominating practices throughout the week at the Senior Bowl. With the versatility to move outside to right tackle, Iupati gives the 49ers a solid solution to their offensive line woes.

    17. Tennessee Titans
    Brian Price, DT, UCLA
    After watching his defense decline dramatically after the loss of Albert Haynesworth, Jeff Fisher adds the hard-working Price to to fortify the unit.

    18. Pittsburgh Steelers
    Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama
    Casey Hampton's impending free-agent status makes it imperative the Steelers find a replacement at nose tackle. While Cody's weight may concern some, there is no disputing his ability to control the point of attack in the middle.

    19. Atlanta Falcons
    Navorro Bowman, LB, Penn State
    Mike Smith needs a playmaker at the weak-side linebacker spot, and Bowman's athleticism makes him a perfect fit in the Falcons' scheme.

    20. Houston Texans
    Earl Thomas, S, Texas
    The Texans continue to add to an emerging defense by selecting Thomas with their top pick. The versatile ball hawk shows excellent range as a safety, but also possesses the athleticism to fill in at corner.

    21. Cincinnati Bengals
    Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
    The Bengals add the ultra-athletic Gresham to their lineup despite the former Oklahoma star missing all of his senior season with a knee injury. If his medical concerns check out, Gresham would give the Bengals a much-needed vertical threat in the middle of the field.

    22. New England Patriots
    Brandon Graham, OLB, Michigan
    Graham lacks the athleticism to play as a conventional 3-4 outside linebacker, but his outstanding pass rush skills make him an intriguing addition to the Patriots' lineup.

    23. Green Bay Packers
    Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland
    The Packers' woes in pass protection will result in the team grabbing Campbell with its top pick. Although the former Terrapin is raw in some aspects, his potential makes him an attractive option at this point.

    24. Philadelphia Eagles
    Everson Griffen, DE, Southern California
    The Eagles defense is at its best when the pass rush is wreaking havoc on opponents. Griffen would give the team a young rusher with star potential to use opposite Trent Cole.

    25. Baltimore Ravens
    Arrelious Benn, WR, Illinois
    The Ravens need more weapons in the passing game for Joe Flacco to fulfill his potential. Benn fits the bill with his dynamic receiving skills.

    26. Arizona Cardinals
    Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
    Matt Leinart is penciled in as the team's starter, but Ken Whisenhunt will bring in Bradford to compete for the starting job. If the signal-caller isn't there, a pass-rushing threat such as Ricky Sapp would be a welcome addition.

    27. Dallas Cowboys
    Taylor Mays, S, Southern California
    Jerry Jones finds it too difficult to pass on adding a talent like Mays to his defense.

    28. San Diego Chargers
    Jahvid Best, RB, California
    The swift playmaker from Cal steps into the Chargers' starting lineup on Day 1 to ignite a dormant rush attack.

    29. N.Y. Jets
    Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
    The instinctive corner has the savvy and athleticism to blossom in the Jets' aggressive scheme.

    30. Minnesota Vikings
    Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee
    Pat Williams is likely headed for retirement, so the Vikings opt for the rugged Dan Williams to fill his spot in the middle of the defense.

    31. Indianapolis Colts
    Jared Odrick, DT, Penn State
    The hardworking Odrick is an ideal fit as an interior player in the Colts' scheme, and his presence will help shore up the team's woes against the run.

    32. New Orleans Saints
    Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri
    The loquacious Weatherspoon adds speed and athleticism to the Saints' linebacker corps.

    Some of these picks seem completely unrealistic to me ! What do you think ?

        I think there are people who make some mocks just to be different...

          A lot of picks I have problems with there, but the worst one is probaby Best to the Chargers. He's the exact same back that Sproles is.

            The Dunlap to the Jaguars pick might be lazier than the Tebow to the Jags pick. Wow. If the draft fell like that for us, I would bet large sums of money that I don't have that we would be taking one of the quarterbacks.
            I don't really have anything to say for my sig.

                Sproles is likely gone. In a mock that is pants load of awful, that's actually not a terrible pick.

                    What!!!???

                    The Chiefs take a right tackle with the 5th overall pick. A left tackle, maybe, I wouldn't agree but maybe. Not a right tackle!

                    Does this make sense to anyone?

                      It's not a good mock. I don't even mind Odrick to the Colts, but not for the reasons he states. Even when he gets it right it's for the wrong reasons.

                      Clausen out of the 1st, Cardinals taking Bradford when their D needs help, Trent Williams and JPP getting picked too early, Seahawks not taking Clausen are all dumb. I wonder how much this "expert" gets paid.

                          No, it makes no sense. The guy is an idiot obviously. You don't pay top 5 money to a RT.

                          If anything, move your current LT over to the right side if you plan on drafting a tackle that high. Drafting one specifically to play RT 5th overall when you have a team with glaring need is just stupid.

                              I think all "experts" believe they have to put something different than everyone just so they're not following the crowd. But examples like this and Todd McShays mock just show that some people shouldn't get paid for this.

                              Realistically I think there are 11 possible spots for either Clausen or Bradford to go in the first and Arizona is not one of them.

                              St Louis
                              Washington
                              Seattle
                              Cleveland
                              Buffalo
                              Jacksonville
                              Denver
                              SF
                              Seattle
                              Sf
                              Minnesota

                              Somehow though, in a QB driven league none of these teams take a QB and only one goes in the first. If anything there is a better chance of 3 QBs in the first.
