  • Murph's Mock

    1) Kansas City Chiefs - Jake Long, OT, Michigan
    A dominating OL has been a staple for the Chiefs in the past so it is time to get back to basics and rebuild it.

    2) Buffalo Bills - Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
    Posluszny would love to able to roam around more and make plays knowing a strong DT is in front of him. He gets his wish.

    3) Atlanta Falcons - Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
    It just makes too much sense (even if Harrington is removed for Leftwich). Brohm, Leftwich, and Shockley in '08 is not a bad trio to rebuild a team around.

    4) Jacksonville Jaguars - DeSean Jackson, WR, California
    Woodson is very tempting here but to keep ticket sales up, a playmaker is needed on this struggling offense.

    5) Saint Louis Rams - Kenny Phillips, S, Miami
    Carriker is the future up front and Spoon locks down the middle of the field but the seconday needs a leader and a playmaker.

    6) Miami Dolphins - Darren Mcfadden, RB, Arkansas
    I think that as the season goes along and Arkansas gets into the meat of their schedule, the better SEC defenses will shut him down a little causing his stock to take a very slight hit. Plus the needs of the top 5 teams do not include a first round RB. Miami gets a steal here.

    7) Minnesota Vikings - Andre Woodson, QB, Kentucky
    A bit of a reach here and an OT is a need but the front office wants a leader and a playmaker and Woodson has more value than the next WR on the board.

    8) New York Giants - Keith Rivers, LB, USC
    The Giants will be forced to address their horrible CB play in free agency because results are needed fast (Asante Samuel perhaps?). Time for some youth at LB and Rivers is a good fit.

    9) New York Jets - Ryan Claddy, OT, Boise State
    The bookends are now complete and with Mangold under center & a decent OG pick-up in free agency, the Jets will host one of the best OL's in '08 and beyond.

    10) Dallas Cowboys (via Clevleand) - Early Doucet, WR, LSU
    It is time to think ahead after TO and Glenn are gone and lock in a future playmaker. With two first rounders, the Cowboys have a luxury of building for the future. Doucet has the tools to be a huge weapon. This pick has Jerry Jones written all over it in so many ways.

    11) Detroit Lions - Calais Campbell, DE, Miami
    Campbell, so far, is not having a season worthy of being a top 5 pick but his potential can not be ignored and Detroit gets a steal.

    12) Oakland Raiders - Sam Baker, OT, USC
    Could this fit be any better? Probably not.

    13) New Orleans Saints - James Laurinatis, ILB, Ohio State
    The Saints D needs help and a true leader in the middle for years to come. They really need a CB also but, like the Giants, I think they will address that in free agency because results are needed fast.

    14) Philadelphia Eagles - Ray Maualuga, OLB, USC
    The LB corps needs more young talent and a guy who has a nose for the ball and can make plays.

    15) Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC
    Time for the Bucs to rebuild the interior and with Adams next to him, Bucs fans can start seeing a new and exciting DL emerge.

    16) Cincinnati Bengals - Chris Long, DE, Virginia
    If the Bengals want to slow down the opposition, they must get more pressure on the QB. Long provides that.

    17) Arizona Cardinals - Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State
    CB is one of the weakest spots in this draft and on the Cardinals roster so they can address a need with the top prospect this late on the board. Obviously, the Cardinals are thrilled.

    18) Washington Redskins - Lawrence Jackson, DE, USC
    The Skins were hoping for Jenkins but they go BPA and get a great player to add to their already improving defense. Look for the Skins to be a playoff team in '08.

    19) Tennessee Titans - Frank Okam, DT, Texas
    No WR's or DB's on the board are worth it here so the Titans go for a run stuffer to beef up the interior.

    20) Houston Texans - Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss
    Obviously for Houston to be drafting this low, they had a great year with Shaub and Green so upgrades at QB and RB are not necessary. Oher may need a year to become a starter which is fine as the current tackles should be back another season and, right now, they are doing well. His measurables will stun people.

    21) Green Bay Packers - Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
    Yeah, I'll get flamed for this. After leading the Pakcers back to the playoffs, Farve finally hangs it up so it is time to build around a new guy with great football fundamentals to go along with strong leadership qualities (not to mention great talent). Ryan will be a top 15 pick by next April so he is a steal here. I know Packer fans want a DB but none are on the board worthy of this pick. Shades of the '05 draft you say? Much better quality this time with Ryan.

    22) Denver Broncos - Jasper Brinkley, ILB, South Carolina
    Shades of Demco Ryans with Brinkley here. He will have fun in the Denver defense. This guy knows how to sniff out the ball and make plays and will be the new face of the Broncos D.

    23) Seattle Seahawks - Mark Rucker, TE, Missouri
    Look for Rucker to be the top TE next April once everyone has time to see his tapes. His numbers this season, so far, are fantastic. Seattle needs a playmaker at that position.

    24) Baltimore Ravens - Derek Harvey, DE/OLB, Florida
    I think Suggs will be gone after this season but plugging Harvey in that slot should yield instant results

    25) Chicago Bears - Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College
    One of the best OT draft crop in years continues to get picked over by a Bears team that has too much age on their front five so it is time to start rebuilding. Look for the team to draft a guard in the 2nd or 3rd round and maybe even snag an OL free agent also.

    26) New England Patriots (via San Fran.) - Quinton Groves, OLB/DE, Auburn
    I don't know what you think but he appears to be a perfect fit for this defense and a good value this low in the round.

    27) San Diego Chargers - DeJuan Tribble, CB, Boston College
    It appears both starting CB's are free agents so there may be a big need here next April. In a weak CB class, Tribble will continue to impress as the season goes. This Boston College team has some great talent.

    28) Carolina Panthers - Barry Richardson, OT, Clemson
    No safeties or DT left worthy of a first round pick and with both bookends being UFA's (although Gross is a priority to get re-signed) and no depth, OT is a need.

    29) San Francisco (via Colts) - Tommy Blake, DE, TCU
    A strong pass rusher who should fit the 3-4 scheme nicely.

    30) New England - forfieted

    31) Dallas Cowboys - Dan Conner, LB, Penn State
    Plain and simple, BPA and a leader on D.

    32) Pitt Steelers - Jeremy Perry, OG, Oregon State
    Far and away, the best interior lineman in the draft will fill a need once Faneca is gone.

    First off I love that you have the Steeles winning the Superbowl.

    Couple of thoughts.

    The Dolphins wont take a RB, they selected Ronnie Brown #2 overall a couple years ago, no way they waste a pick on a RB when they have their franchise back in place.

    The pack wont take a first round QB, they have Aaron Rodgers who they took in the first a couple years back and hasnt had an oppurtunity yet. In preseason he has looked great so no way this pick happens.

    Its highly unlikley Dan Conner falls 1 spot before the second round.

      Nice pick for the Vikings even though i rather see us go out and get a Veteran QB. I would rather have DeSean Jackson but since he is taken ill take Woodson. Nice Pick.

      Vikings | Yankees | Magic | Sabres | Chelsea FC | Alabama | St. Bonaventure

        Dan Connor in Dallas doesn't make any sense. We have Ware on the outside and another first round pick in Spencer. James is the leader of this defense and Ayodele is playing good at the WILB position. We probably have the deepest ILB position in the NFL with Burnett and Carp. LB just doesn't seem to make any sense.

        DL looks to be a big offseason move this year. Kentwan Balmer from NC looks klike he could go in this range if he has a good offseason.
        CB is the biggest need a big physical corner would look good. A lot depends on what underclassman declare.


        • #5
          I like Groves, but we need a run stuffer or a CB much more than a pass rusher right now.


          • #6
            Yes, you will get flamed for the Ryan pick, because it's idiotic.

              DT isn't nearly as big a need as people think it is. Greg Peterson as a 6th Round rookie has been getting good penetration, so has Jovan Haye.

                You don't pass up a big play option if it is there though. DT is definitely a need for the Buc's unless Haye or Peterson show me or the coaching staff something for the future.

                  Give us Tony Hills, LT, Texas at that point.

                  We don't need to fill the void left by faneca because after the season. Kendall Simmons is sliding to LG (4 year extension), and Chris Kemoeatu will slide into start for RG.

                  We need a future LT, or DE/OLB in the first two rounds.

                  Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

                    Skins dont draft DL on day 1, we need a CB or WR

                      Maybe they should start.

                        DLine is the only way to go this year, unless somebody amazing falls. Jackson is a solid pick.

                          Rodgers looked better than Favre this preseason, though he was going up against 2nd teamers, so a qb is out of the question unless we trade rodgers but that is unlikely to happen

                          Sig thanks to Bonekrusher


                          • #14
                            Hahaha, NO chance we take a first round QB. We drafted Rodgers, not even letting him have a chance would be incredibly stupid. He's looked good in preseaon by the way and should be a great fit for the offense that Mike McCarthy wants to run.


                            • #15
                              No way QB for GB even though I don't think Rodgers is the answer
