  • TACKLE this mock - v1.0

    This is my first mock of the year. I have left out all Junior O-Lineman because they usually don't come out early. I also left Calais Campbell and Jack Ikegwuonu because I expect them both to stay for their senior year. I would really appreciate your input and opinions. Enjoy.


    1. Miami Dolphins - DARREN MCFADDEN*, RB, ARKANSAS

    The Dolphins are pathetic. Dorsey fills the biggest need here but isnít going to turn the Dolphins around. They have bigger needs then RB right now but McFadden is the best player in the draft and in college football. With Ronnie Brown coming off a torn ACL, he might not be 100% coming into the season. He can split carries with DMAC so he wonít have to carry the same load. It would really help ďyoungĒ QB Jon Beck if he can have a great running attack to take pressure off him. . If Ronnie isnít healthy they could trade him. If Ronnie is fine for the season, having McFadden and Ronnie Brown in the same backfield could help turn the franchise around.

    2. New England Patriots (from San Fran) Ė JAKE LONG, OT, MICHIGAN

    The O-line unit was outstanding at the beginning of the year but now is having some struggles. The Pats O-Line is getting older and they need some youth. Long could come in play right away at RT and eventually could take over at LT for the 32-year old Matt Light. Gholston and Laurenitas fill a bigger need but donít have good value here; though I do expect the Pats to trade down.

    3. Atlanta Falcons Ė MATT RYAN, QB, BOSTON COLLEGE

    Falcons need a QB here badly. Petrino probably wants his Brohm but Matt Ryan has all the physical tools you look for to go along with his great production and intangibles. Petrino will put his personal feelings aside and go with the best player at the biggest position of need.

    4. St.Louis Rams - GLENN DORSEY, DT, LSU

    The Rams go with the BPA who will make a big impact in the middle of their D. Carriker was drafted last year but Dorsey can play Nose and Under Tackle in the 4-3. There are talks that Rams may move to a 3-4 and Dorsey could bulk and play NT.

    5. New York Jets Ė CHRIS LONG, DE, VIRGINIA

    Easiest pick in the draft. The Jets really need a 3-4 DE and Chris Long is a perfect fit. He played that position in college and he will bring the pass rush that the Jets are lacking.

    6. Kansas City Chiefs Ė JEFF OTAH, OT, PITTSBURG

    I really like Otah. He is a monster at 6í6 340 and is dominant in the run game. He has great feet for a guy his size. The Chiefs line has never been the same since Roaf and Shields left. Otah fits the Chiefs offence well and will be opening big holes for LJ for many years.

    7. Cincinnati Bengals - SEDRICK ELLIS, DT, USC

    Itís no secret that the Bengals defense is a mess. Ellis is a beast whose motor never stops. He can help the run defense and be an effective pass-rusher. 8.5 sacks show that. It wouldnít surprise me if Ellis jumped ahead of Dorsey come April.

    8. Baltimore Ravens Ė ANDREí WOODSON, QB, KENTUCKY

    The Ravens Passing game is non-existent. McNair has flopped in Baltimore and Kyle Boller shouldnít be a starting QB. Woodson has NFL size, a great arm, doesnít throw picks and a knack for making the big play when it matters most. Malcolm Jenkins is also an option.

    9. Oakland Raiders - VERNON GHOLSTON*, DE, OHIO STATE

    The Raiders D carried them last year but is struggling this year. They need some youth on the D-Line and Gholston is just what they need. He is a very talent pass rusher whoís had a great season. Al Davis will love his freakish abilities.

    10. New Orleans Saints - MALCOLM JENKINS*, CB, OHIO STATE

    Fred Thomas was garbage last year so they brought in Jason David. He hasnít looked any better. There whole D has struggled because teams pass the ball all over them. Jenkins can come in Day 1 and compete for a starting spot.

    11. Houston Texans - JONATHAN STEWART*, RB, OREGON

    Ahman Green went down early in the year and the running game hasnít been inconsistent all year. Ron Dayne has shown flashes but heíll never be the guy. Stewart came out of nowhere and had a great season but will also put on a show at the combine. Stewart has a great build at 5í10 230 and is rumored to run a 4.3. His power clean is also over 400lbs. Stewart is a physical freak.

    12. Denver Broncos Ė KENNY PHILLIPS*, S, MIAMI

    Denver has had some problems on D. Kenny Phillips is a very talented player who fills a big need for the Broncos and could help the Broncos have an elite secondary with Phillips, Champ and Dre Bly. This pick will really help Denver.

    13. Washington Redskins - KENTWAN BALMER, DT, NORTH CAROLINA

    Washington would like a tall WR but none have good enough value here. At 6í5 295, Balmer has shot up draft boards because of his great size and quickness. He can really help an aging DL and has the ability to play DE and DT.

    14. Chicago Bears - BRIAN BROHM, QB, LOUSIVILLE

    I donít hate Rex as much as some people but it is time for a change. Rex just doesnít get it done consistently. Brohm will never be an elite NFL QB but he is a solid player who can make all the throws and is a very good decision maker.

    15. Carolina Panthers Ė SAM BAKER, OT, USC

    Both of Carolinaís stating OTís are free agents next year and they will need to bring some one else in. Chris Williams is also an option but Carolina like smaller quicker lineman for their ZBS.

    16. Philadelphia Eagles - CHRIS WILLIAMS, OT, VANDERBILT

    Both William Thomas and Jon Runyan are in their thirties. Winston Justice should not be starting in the NFL and at very least Williams should provide some depth to a line who has had injury problems.

    17. Detroit Lions - JAMES LAURENITAS*, LB, OHIO STATE

    The Lions will be ecstatic if Laurenitas is still available. They need an athletic, stud MLB for their Tampa 2. Laurentias is a great fit and is a guy who I can see Marenelli really liking.

    18. Buffalo Bills - JAMES HARDY*,WR, INDIANA

    The Bills need a big receiver to compliment Lee Evans. Hardy is 6í7 and is having a great season. If he can run under a 4.6 heíll be a Top 20 pick.

    19. Minnesota Vikings - JORDY NELSON, WR, KANSAS STATE

    Jordy Nelson would really help out Tavaris Jackson. He can take short passes and can get YAC. His production this year is off the charts. He can be a deep threat and but also will go across the middle and get a first down. He is rumored to run a 4.3 and if he does heíll be the pick here.

    20. Dallas Cowboys (from Cleveland) - REGGIE SMITH*, FS/CB, OKLAHOMA

    Reggie Smith is a solid CB but can also play FS. Two the Cowboys most pressing needs. His versatility is a big plus and he will help improve the Cowboys secondary.

    21. Arizona Cardinals - QUENTIN GROVES, DE/OLB, AUBURN

    The Cardinals D is playing pretty good but with them moving to a 3-4 they need the proper personnel. Groves hasnít stood out and OLB but was dominant at DE early in the year. He is said to run a 4.4 which is ridiculous for a guy his size. He can really get after the QB something the Cards are missing. Mendenhall is an option but Arizona needs to address their D.

    22. Tennessee Titans - DESEAN JACKSON*, WR, CAL

    Iím not a big DeSean Jackson fan simply because he hasnít been very productive this year. But he does have tremendous speed and is great after the catch. Right now the Titans have some tall possession receivers but no true play makers. A Return Man is also needed because I donít expect Pacman to be a Titan next year.

    23. San Diego Chargers - ERIN HENDERSON*, LB, MARYLAND

    The Chargers biggest weakness is their ILBís. Henderson can play every postion in the 3-4 and played in it in college. Henderson is a great athlete who has been very productive this year with 11 tackles per game.

    24. Tampa Bay Buccanears - PAT SIMS*, DT, AUBURN

    Gruden is always tempted by the most talented guy available but the D-Line hasnít been the same since Sapp and McFarrland left. Pat Sims is probably the one of most underrated player in the draft. He is arguably the top junior DT in the country. His size/speed combo is impressive. Sims runs a 4.9 at 6í4 315 and has been a force in the middle all year for Auburn. Sims can play as the NT in the Tampa 2 or the UT. Come draft time, I expect a lot of people will know his name.

    25. New York Giants - DAN CONNOR, LB, PENN STATE

    If Strahan retires, Kiwi needs to move back to his natural postion of DE. That will leave a whole at SLB. Connor can play all three LB spots. Connor, the winner of the Butkus Award, is a taller more athletic version of teammate Paul Posluszny. CB may be the pick here put I think LB is the more immediate need.

    26. Seattle Seahawks - RASHARD MENDENHALL*, RB, ILLINOIS

    Mendenhall had a great season. He has all you look for in an NFL RB. Alexander has lost a step and Mendenhall will eventually take over. He can contribute right away and split carries.

    27. Jacksonville Jaguars - CHRIS ELLIS, DE, VIRGINIA TECH

    The Jags need a pass rushing DE and they finally get one. Chris Ellis has been disruptive all year with 8.5 sacks and an impressive 22 QB Hurries. He absolutely embarrassed Gosder Cherilus who was thought to be one the elite O-Lineman in college football up until that game.

    28. Pittsburg Steelers - ANTOINE CASON, CB, ARIZONA

    Cason has great value here. The Thorpe Award Winner has had a great senior year. He is a physical, playmaking corner who will fit good in Dick LeBeauís defense and will bring some much needed depth at CB.

    29. Green Bay Packers - MIKE JENKINS, CB, SOUTH FLORIDA

    The Packers donít have any pressing needs so they go with Jenkins who has good value here and also brings depth to a set of aging corners.

    30. San Francisco 49ers - MALCOM KELLY*, WR, OKLAHOMA

    If the 49ers can get Kelly here it would be a steal. San Franís offense is painful to watch and they need someone who can catch and make plays. Darrell Jackson, Ashley Lelie and Arnaz Battle arenít getting it done. The 49ers may look at a DE/OLB type here but they need to address their problems on offence.

    31. Dallas Cowboys - DRE MOORE, DT, MARYLAND

    The Cowboys might go with the BPA here but it is rare to find a guy who can play all three D-Line positions in a 3-4. He is 6í4 310 and very athletic. He can provide some quality depth for the Cowboys D.

      Jovan Haye has been excellent at UT all year. We need a NT more, and even then, it's not a first-round issue. Doucet and Cason are better picks.

        I know the Saints needs cornerback help. It's very evident, however, I don't think we're going after a first round corner and here's why:

        We're paying Jason David roughly $4 million a year and we invested an early third round pick in Usama Young who has only seen the field in nickel packages. He's looked good when played and I have every reason to believe that next year what the Saints are going to do is have Young starting opposite McKenzie and David as the nickel.

        The Saints need DT or LB in the first round. Balmer, Dorsey, Dre Moore, or Sedrick Ellis would do wonders for our defensive front and Laurinitis or Conner would immediately upgrade our linebackers.

          I partially like the Groves pick, he doesn't deserve to be picked that high with the way he has played this year, but he has been playing through injuries and with his supposed 4.4 or hell even a high 4.5 time he will shoot up draft boards

          As for the rest of the mock there are a couple of questionable 1st rounders, Sims and Nelson being the two who I see as late 2nd rounders

            Bad explaination, Justin Tuck can easily replace Strahan and has shown that all year.

              A couple of things, Otah looks too high at #6, Brohm would make more sense to Atlanta and Ryan to Chicago and i dont think Jonathon Stewart runs near a 4.3 otherwise i think this is one of the better mocks i've seen. Also surprised Ryan Clady isnt in round 1 somewhere.

                          Sims blend of size and athletism is really impressive and I think he'll shoot up draft boards after the combine. As for Jordy Nelson, his production this year has been ridiculous. 122 catches, 1606 yds, 11TD's. He has good size at 6'2 215 and speed ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek0ANQ8bRfo) and I don't see getting past the end of the 1st.

                            I do not think Brohm is worth a Top 3 pick. He'll be a solid NFL QB but won't be special. Matt Ryan has everything you look for in a great QB. About Clady, I didn't include any Junior OL. If I had I would of had him go to the Chiefs, Texans, or Panthers.

                              Saint need to take Phillips if he's there.
