  • My first mock of the season and it's dank

    The order is based off of the ESPN power rankings....except I think the Giants are going to be the NFC's sacrificial lamb to the AFC representative (aka the Pats or Colts).

    I would love as much feedback as possible, but it is really just annoying when the feedback is "oh my god you're so flippin ******** how could you ever think..." honestly it makes you look unintelligent and like an ass to do that....constructive feedback is always way better, and more fun.

    Anyway, enjoy


    #1 Dolphins-OT Jake Long, Michigan
    The Dolphins roster is bare and they will probably have to trade away Jason Taylor in the off-season. The only commodities they have that are worth protecting are Ronnie Brown and their 2nd round pick John Beck. John Beck will have enough trouble as it is having success on a team with barely any talent, but it will be much more challenging if they give him no protection. There are questions about Longís ability to play left tackle in the NFL, but the bottom line is that he is the best offensive lineman in the draft and that happens to be a huge need of the Dolphins.

    #2 Rams-DE Calais Campbell, Miami
    This could be Glenn Dorsey or Chris Long; I guess it is a matter of who the Rams like the most. My guess will be Campbell because he has the highest upside due to his off the charts athleticism and triangle numbers he will post during workouts. The Rams defense is horrendous, and the fact is that a good pass rush can atone for many sins on defense, just ask the Giants.

    #3 Jets-DE Chris Long, Virginia
    Darren McFadden is a luxury this team cannot afford even though the fans will probably be calling for him. This team needs to start over and work from the trenches outward. Chris Long to date has 12 sacks in his senior season, and his ability to rush the passer was his biggest question mark before the season started. He is a great prospect in his own right despite his bloodlines, and is a great selection for the Jets, as he will help in many areas on their defense.

    #4 Patriots (F/SF)-RB Darren McFadden, Arkansas
    I donít see how this is fair. The Patriots are rolling at the moment, and they could end up with a top 5 pick and the best player in the draft. They do have actual needs, such as middle linebacker, but McFadden is a luxury that they can afford to have, and you can even argue that the Patriots running game is an area of need. Despite investing a first round pick on Maroney I do not believe the Patriots would pass on the chance to bring in McFadden because he is a superstar waiting to happen.

    #5 Falcons-QB Brian Brohm, Louisville
    The Falcons are a mess and I am just waiting for DeAngelo Hall to be traded before he walks away as a free agent after the 08 season. The quarterback coach connection is fairly obvious and with the way the coaching staff is treating their players, favoring the youngsters, it seems like this is the way Petrino wants to go, rebuilding with young players. Here is your hand picked quarterback Bobby, best of luck.

    #6 Raiders-DT Glenn Dorsey, LSU
    What happened to the Raiders defense? 30th in the league against the run, I thought the defense was supposed to make them playoff contenders? Thereís always next year. Glenn Dorsey is a stud and may have been the first DT taken in the 07 draft, and this year he is a lock for a top 10 pick if not top 5.

    #7 Bengals-DT Sedrick Ellis, USC
    The Bengals are terrible. I mean terrible. On the bright side the offensive passing game still did well despite an injured running back and a terrible defense. They should get a pass rusher but one is not available so here is the next best thing. Please, stop the run. If you do that you could get the ball back in Palmerís hand to throw it. This isnít rocket science.

    #8 Broncos-WR DeSean Jackson, Cal
    Yes the Broncos need defensive lineman and lots of them. But the top two defensive tackles are off the board and they should not reach for the next one with a top 10 pick. Here is my logic: Cutler is expected to become John Elway, which I personally believe he can do thanks to his cannon of an arm and ridiculous moxy, but for the love of g-d give him some help. Having one receiver who gets injured does not help him. Jackson may never be a true #1 in the league, but in Denver he doesnít need to be. He can work underneath from the slot, and also be a homerun threat at all times. I think Cutler will like this selection.

    #9 Bears-QB Matt Ryan, BC
    I donít know why I need to explain this but I will. Grossman is horrendous and Griese might be worse. Seriously, it is terrible. It is always hard to start over at quarterback especially since Chicagoís window is beginning to close, but they have no choice. Maybe they should get a veteran who actually is worth his salary to bridge the gap a little.

    #10 Vikings-DE Derrick Harvey, Florida
    I know, I know, how is this not a quarterback, I am off my rocker and the worst mock drafter of all time. Listen, I 100% am convinced that Donovan McNabb will be the Viking starting quarterback next season, itís a bold prediction, but I believe it will happen and there fore the Vikings do not draft a quarterback. They move onto a different weakness. Their defense is very talented but the ends can be upgraded over. They can definitely use a better pass rush and Harvey can provide that.

    #11 Eagles-OLB Dan Connor, Penn St.
    This to me seems like a no brainer. What other reason do the Eagles need to draft Conner? They need linebackers, Connor is great value, and oh, he played at Penn St. To me this needs no further explanation.

    #12 Cardinals-DE Quentin Groves, Auburn
    The Cardinals have pieces in place and if Leinart next season can take a large step forward they will be very competitive. In the mean time, the team wants to switch to the 3-4, which requires certain personnel to operate. Groves first the mold of a 3-4 OLB and can get after the quarterback, which will always be a high premium in the NFL.

    #13 Texans-OT Sam Baker, USC
    To me this one is so obvious it is hard to explain it. The Texans have been searching for a franchise left tackle literally since they started their franchise. Sam Baker can finally fill the huge void that the Texans always have on their roster. It to me is as simple as it gets for draft selections.

    #14 Panthers-QB Andre Woodson, Kentucky
    Delhomme is injured and aging. Vinny Testeverde is now, 147? And David Carr apparently will be sacked no matter what team he plays for. Oh well, time to try again. Andre Woodson has been said to be the only quarterback in this class with star potential, so luckily he is the one of the big three that falls to Carolina. It is a shame to see Steve Smith without a consistent quarterback.

    #15 Bills-OLB Keith Rivers, USC
    The Bills probably have bigger needs but they do need linebackers and people like Keith Rivers do not come along very often. The guy the Trojans allow to wear #55 is better than the #15 pick in the draft and he will most likely make the teams who passed on him pay for it during his career.

    #16 Ravens-CB Justin Smith, Penn St.
    The Ravens have many problems on offense, too bad the value isnít there to draft. Back to the defense, on Monday Big Ben showed what happens if the Ravens do not have their starting corners, who are both over 30 so that will only increase in regularity, the team gets torched. I absolutely love Justin Smith, he is going to run a 4.2 at the combine and his stock will soar. He has so much potential it is scary.

    #17 Seahawks-RB Jonathan Stewart, Oregon
    Shaun Alexander is finished. Iím sorry but he is done. The Seahawks need to reload and Stewart is a great way to do so. He has an incredible blend of size, power, and speed, and is a gift at the 18th pick.
    #18 Chiefs-OT Ryan Clady, Boise St.
    The Chiefs need a quarterback, but the big three are off the board. Good thing they always desperately need offensive lineman. They had two hall of famers retire and did nothing to replace themÖÖsmart. Ryan Clady may be long gone by this time on draft day but if he is around this selection makes too much sense not to happenÖ..but then of course whenever that is the case it never does happen.

    #19 Chargers-S Kenny Philips, Miami
    I am a Miami Hurricane fan so donít think that I do not believe Philips is very good, I just didnít see a place to put him further up the draft. I am sure by April that will all change but for now the Chargers get easily the steal of the draft. Did I mention this is easily the steal of the draft?

    #20 Buccaneers-CB Antoine Cason, Arizona
    I do not even know what to say for the Bucs but they have two aging corners and that is where I came up with this pick. I know that sounds ignorant but they do need youth at corner and their top needs arenít really good value here. The Bucs play a cover 2, obviously, which means Casonís speed concerns will not matter too much in Tampaís system.

    #21 Redskins-WR Adarius Bowman, OSU
    Is this a reach? Yea, probably. Do they need to make this selection. Most likely, yes. The Redskins have busted on enough receivers they have added by means other than the draft, and most of them are small, faster guys. They need home grown talent in the form of a big man to compliment those little guys. This selection makes sense.

    #22 Saints-CB Malcolm Jenkins, OSU
    The Saints pass defense is horrendous, period. They need help, and they need it now. Jenkins has a good blend of size and speed and should he come out early he will find himself in contention to be one of the first players off the board at his position, probably around this area of the draft.

    #23 Jaguars-CB Mike Jenkins, USF
    The Jaguars themselves are ranked in the bottom third in pass defense, and the last I checked if you have the Colts in your division that will most likely have to increase if you want to win the division. Mike Jenkins is the best player on South Florida and is a local kid that the Jaguars can groom.

    #24 Cowboys (F/CLE)-CB/S Reggie Smith, Oklahoma
    It is no secret where the Cowboys biggest needs lie, in the secondary. It has long been rumored that Anthony Henry will be moved to safety, and even if he is not they still need corner help because both Henry and Newman are over 30. Needless to say Reggie Smith the corner safety tweener will help the Cowboys as he can be moved around to whichever position the Cowboys need more.

    #25 Lions-OT Gosder Cherilus, BC
    This pick has to be defense, right? Well no, and here is why. The Lions have allowed 36 sacks this season, and it is hard for anyone to withstand such a beating let alone 32 year old (I think he is 32) Kitna. The defense has played surprisingly well and to me 36 sacks in 8 games is horrendous and should be the #1 priority in the off-season.

    #26 Titans-WR Limas Sweed, Texas
    Limas Sweed was injured this season but if he can ran alright in workouts I think he can be in the late first round due to the lack of talent in the receiving class this year. Vince Young needs help, LenDale White is playing very well but if Young is to ever be a solid passer, he needs someone to actually throw to. Enter former teammate Limas Sweed, the chemistry is already in place.

    #27 Packers-RB Steve Slaton, West Virginia
    Do I reallllly need to explain this one???

    #28 Steelers-OLB Shawn Crable, Michigan
    Crableís stock is soaring and he is a good 3-4 fit as an outside linebacker. The Steelers linebackers have always been one of their strengths but recently they have been lacking and getting older, so it might be a good time to begin replenishing the talent.

    #29 Cowboys-WR Early Doucet, LSU
    This is essentially a luxury pick thanks to Clevelandís first round pick, but they do have holes to fill still. They do have a great offense but Owens is not getting younger, Glenn isnít either and he has knee issues. This would be a good time to bring in a young guy to groom.

    #30 49ers (F/IND)-DT Frank Okam, Texas
    If I were running the 9ers I would draft Chad Henne, Alex Smith is horrendous. However, I have a feeling the former #1 pick will get one more chance to prove he can lead the 9ers anywhere. In the mean time, the 9ers have plenty of other needs, such as everything except running back. (To their credit they have a pretty good pass defense and solid offensive line and I absolutely love Joe Staley). Their run defense on the other hand is terrible, and if they want to win games they need to change that. Okam is 320 pounds of run stuffing material.

    #31 Giants-OLB Ali Highsmith
    I personally do not understand how the Giants lost starting offensive lineman from an offensive line that was terrible last year, were never replaced but are playing much better this season. Anyway, good for them as it saves them the responsibility of having to improve the offensive line very much. The Giants defense is good thanks to their incredible mixture of four great pass rushers, but they need help in other areas. They still need linebackers and defensive backs, and at this point Ali Highsmith is the best player of either of those two positions.

    why would the Giants be in the SB over the Cowboys and Packers? and why would we take Steve Slaton over Felix Jones?

          I am happy with this pick. OT trumps Defensive needs, IMO. You are right.

          Also happy to see Crable in Round One. He will be valued highly among 3-4 teams come April.

            this isn't a horrible pick, in fact it might even be possible given the current state of our return game, but Cutler already has a solid trio in Walker/Marshall/Stokley. Give us Philips in this position, or trade down and pick up a linebacker.

                  Glenn Dorsey is a great prospect and all but we have plenty of UTs and I dont get how drafting another one is gonna help us against the run.Your reasoning contradicts your picks.

                      Truth. We have 3 1st round picks on the D-line and some studs on the up-and-up. Phillips to replace sharper would be ideal here.

                          DE isn't real need for the vikings. I don't think they take one unless a Stud DE(Chris Long, Calais Campbell) falls to them... Kenny Phillips is the Ideal pick for the Vikings at #10

                            ...wow....probably since the packers have the worst running offense in the league and it will eventually catch up to them when they cant run the ball in the cold weather and their offense is entirely 1 dimensional.....

                              This has to be among the dumbest comments you can find.

                              The Chiefs have a long tradition of developing great offensive lines.

                              Do they need one? Yes. Do they always? Uhh... watch the NFL pre-2006.
