  • BeerBaron's neat looking 3 round mock

    I tried my best with it using feedback from my last mock. The orders of rounds 2 and 3 might not be perfect but i contend that they are close enough to get the point accross. Also, come the very end, i was putting down players more for thier position than the player himself so don't freak out too much if I have a good idea on the position but a bad one on the player towards the end of round 3....

    I tried to make it look a little different so i listed the team and all their picks as well in that order

    As always, enjoy, and try to keep the criticism civil (eyes the falcons fans...)

    Miami Dolphins:
    Round 1, pick 1: DT Glenn Dorsey
    Round 2, pick 1: OT Chris Williams, Vandy
    Round 2, pick 25: S Craig Steltz, LSU
    Round 3, pick 1: MLB J Leman, Illinois

    Parcells seems like he will want to get out of that first spot badly but i don't see anyone teams below him will value that highly to trade up for unless his former team, the cowboys, really want to sling together a package for McFadden. So, stuck there, he goes with Dorsey who is the best defensive player in the draft and will likely be made to fit just about any scheme. Then they draft an OT in round 2 to keep whoever they get playing QB on his feet. They then bring in some more defense help with their final 2 picks in the first 3 rounds.


    St. Louis Rams:
    Round 1, pick 2: DE Chris Long, Virginia
    Round 2, pick 4: WR Harry Douglas, Louisville
    Round 3, pick 3: QB Chad Henne, Michigan

    With their first pick, they really add some help to their porous D with a versatile end in Chris Long. With Isaac Bruce possibly at the end of his career, they bring in a quality WR in round 2 to begin developing behind Holt and Bennett. The injury to Bulger this year showed just how vulnerable they are on offense without him so they snag a decent QB in round 3 in Henne to develop as backup and maybe end up with a Matt Schaub type of situation a few years down the road.


    NY Jets:
    Round 1, pick 3: HB Darren McFadden, Arkansas
    Round 2. pick 2: DT Frank Okam, Texas
    Round 3, pick 4: OT Carl Nicks, Nebraska

    In round 1, they take perhaps the best player in the draft in McFadden to give them a huge offensive spark and who can be paired with Thomas Jones for a lethal one-two punch. Since Dewayne Robertson hasn't been effective inside in the 34, they nab a huge NT in Okam to hopefully secure that spot. Then in round 3, they snag another tackle to play on the other side of the line from Ferguson and hopefully help to open up holes for their first round pick.


    Atlanta Falcons:
    Round 1, pick 4: QB Matt Ryan, BC
    Round 2, pick 3: OT Tony Hills, Texas
    Round 2, pick 15: OLB Phillip Wheeler, Georgia Tech
    Round 3, pick 2: HB Tashard Choice, Georgia Tech

    No team has a more gashing, ugly, and bitter need than do the Falcons at QB, thats why Matt Ryan is the one and only choice they can possibly go with here. (Falcons fans: http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/blog/wrightstuff.html so shut it) Then then address their atrocious OT situation in round 2 where they get a big one in Tony Hills. Then, with houstons pick, they bring some badly needed depth to their linebacking corps with an in state product in Phillip Wheeler. Finally, in round 3, they address their HB situation where Warrick Dunn isn't getting any younger and there's no evidence of Jerious Norwood being able to shoulder the load himself.


    Kansas City Chiefs:
    Round 1, pick 5: OT Jake Long, Michigan
    Round 2, pick 7: CB Trae Williams, South Fla.
    Round 3, pick 6: WR DJ Hall, Alabama

    Their once great o-line no longer exists and in order to make holes for LJ, they take the best lineman available in Jake Long. In round 2, they shoot some youth into their CB corps with Trae Williams. Then, in round 3, they bring in a WR to help take some of the pressure off of whoever the QB ends up being and also to free up last years first rounder Dwayne Bowe as well.


    Oakland Raiders:
    Round 1, pick 6: DE Vernon Gholston, Ohio St.
    Round 2, pick 5: WR Keenan Burton, Kentucky

    They bring some much needed help to their D-line in round 1 with the top pass rusher available and then in round 2, they bring in a target for last years first rounder to throw at with no other real top quality receivers around.


    Baltimore Ravens:
    Round 1, pick 7: QB Andre Woodson, Kentucky
    Round 2, pick 6: CB Terrell Thomas, USC

    Steve McNairs past his prime, Kyle Bollers no more than a career backup at best, and Troy Smith hasn't shown enough to be relied upon going into next season, so they go with the QB who has the most upside in Andre Woodson in round 1. Then in round 2, they bring some quality depth to their secondary where, beyond Rolle and McCallister, they have no one worthwhile.


    New England Patriots:
    Round 1, pick 8: MLB James Laurenitis, Ohio St.
    Round 2, pick 32: CB Tracy Porter, Indiana
    Round 3, pick 7: OG Kerry Brown, App. St.
    Round 3, pick 32: WR Jordy Nelson, Kansas St.

    Even without one of their first rounders, they have a lot of picks. With their first rounder, they score a MLB who will work into their LB rotation right away and will be the long term successor to Bruschi. In round 2, they grab a CB who fits their scheme perfectly and will be insurance for the loss of Asante Samuel. With the first of thier 3rd rounders, they nab a small school lineman to add depth to their oline and a productive if unspectacular WR to add to their high powered attack.


    Cincinnati Bengals:
    Round 1, pick 9: OLB Dan Conner, Penn St.
    Round 2, pick 12: DT Demario Pressley, NC St.
    Round 3, pick 11: WR Will Franklin, Missouri

    The Bengals LB got so bad this year they actually put 270+ pound DE Robert Geathers back there at one point. LB is a huge area of need and Dan Conner is a good guy and a sure tackler, 2 things the Bengals sorely need right now. In round 2, they address their porous d-line with a guy from a school whose churned out many top notch NFL d-lineman. Then, with Chad Johnson's future up in the air, they bring in a WR as insurance.


    Denver Broncos:
    Round 1, pick 10: OLB Keith Rivers, USC
    Round 2, pick 9: FS Thomas DeCloud, Cal.
    Round 3, pick 12: OT Oniel Cousins, UTEP

    DJ Williams is the only worthwhile LB that exists in Denver and they surround him with some help in round 1. In round 2, the bring some help to their secondary with a new young safety. In round 3, they bring in a smaller, athletic lineman that will fit nicely into their zone blocking scheme.


    Carolina Panthers:
    Round 1, pick 11: S Kenny Phillips, Miami
    Round 2, pick 10: QB Colt Brennan, Hawaii
    Round 3: pick 9: WR Lavelle Hawkins, Cal.

    While a QB is a huge need here, John Fox will want a player who can help him win now and keep his job and Phillips definitally does that. As a trade off, the team takes Colt Brennan in round 2 as the future QB of the team. Then, in round 3, they pick up another WR to try and compliment Steve Smith since it seems like last years second round pick, Dwayne Jarrett, is still busy running his 40....


    Chicago Bears:
    Round 1, pick 12: OT Jeff Otah, Pitt
    Round 2, pick 11: DT Kentwan Balmer, NC
    Round 3, pick 10: QB Joe Flacco, Delaware
    Round 3, pick 24: OG Jordan Grimes, Purdue

    Fred Miller has become abhorrent so replacing him at RT is the #1 priority. Otah will not only do that, but can be developed to take over at LT a few years down the line as well. After Tommie Harris, the Bears have next to nothing good at DT so they opt for the athletic underachiever Balmer in round 2. With the first of their 3rd round picks, they snag an all important QB to develop a behind Orton and/or a FA in Joe Flacco. Finally, they add some depth at G with Jordan Grimes.


    Arizona Cardinals:
    Round 1, pick 13: CB Malcolm Jenkins, Ohio St.
    Round 2, pick 18: DE Quentin Groves, Auburn
    Round 3: pick 17: HB Allen Patrick, Oklahoma

    They would be happy with either Jenkins at CB but opt to go with the one from a school with a track record of success in Malcolm. They follow up with another improvement to their defense in round 2 with the versatile Groves who can play OLB in the 34 if they opt to stick with that or play DE in a 43. Finally, they nab a HB in round 3 to split time with, backup, and possibly succeed Edge James.


    New Orleans Saints:
    Round 1, pick 14: CB Mike Jenkins, South Fla.
    Round 2, pick 13: MLB Jonathan Goff, Vandy
    Round 3, pick 18: TE Martin Rucker, Missouri

    Mike McKenzie is old and hurt and Jason David has been a FA bust, so CB is a huge need for them and Mike Jenkins might be the best of the draft. In round 2, they fill their 2nd biggest need in a MLB with Goff who has a lot of potential. In the 3rd round, they get another target for Drew Brees to throw in Rucker.


    Buffalo Bills:
    Round 1, pick 15: WR Malcolm Kelly, Oklahoma
    Round 2, pick 14: TE John Carlson, Notre Dame
    Round 3, pick 5: OLB Beau Bell, UNLV
    Round 3, pick 13: CB/S Zach Bowman, Nebraska

    They nab a bigger receiver to help them out in the red zone and distract coverage away from big play threat Lee Evans in round 1 with Kelly. In round 2, the look to offense again and pick the perhaps the best TE of the class in Carlson. With the first of their 2 3rd rounders, they nab some LB depth in Bell and also depth in their secondary with Bowman with their 2nd pick.


    Houston Texans:
    Round 1, pick 16: HB Jonathan Stewart, Oregon
    Round 3, pick 14: OT Heath Benedict, Newberry

    Ahman Green and Ron Dayne are getting old and are backups at best now, so they get maybe the 2nd best back in the draft in Stewart to shoulder their load. In round 3, they bring help to their ever in need o-line with small school prospect Benedict.


    Detroit Lions:
    Round 1, pick 17: OT Ryan Clady, Boise St.
    Round 2, pick 16, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Tenn St.
    Round 3, pick 15: OLB Erza Butler, Nevada

    They've given up the most sacks in the NFL so that right there tells you their biggest need and they address it with Clady in the first round. Their 2nd biggest need has to be corner and they score DR-C in round 2 in hopes he's going to follow in the steps of Mathis, Tillman and the like as a small school corner who succeeds in the NFL. Finally, they grab some much needed depth at LB with Butler in the 3rd.


    Philadelphia Eagles:
    Round 1, pick 18: WR Desean Jackson, Cal.
    Round 2, pick 17: OLB Ali Highsmith, LSU
    Round 3, pick 16: OG Andrew Crummey, Maryland

    They nab a playmaker and return specialist, both of which are sorely needed, in round 1 in Jackson. In round 2, with Takeo Spikes getting older, they grab some depth and perhaps his replacement in Highsmith. Finally, they add some much needed depth to their o-line with the pick of Crummey in the third.


    Minnesota Vikings:
    Round 1, pick 19: DE Calais Campbell, Miami
    Round 2, pick 20: WR Earl Bennett, Vandy
    Round 3, pick 19: S Marcus Griffin, Texas

    While you can make a case for QB or WR in round 1, Childress doesn't like to go there so instead they give their defense some more punch by adding a DE to their pro-bowl DT's with Campbell. They grab a much needed WR in round 2 with Earl Bennett and, in round 3, they get some secondary help in Griffin.


    Washington Redskins:
    Round 1, pick 20: DT Sedrick Ellis, USC
    Round 2, pick 19: DE Lawrence Jackson, USC
    Round 3, pick 20: OT Barry Richardson, Clemson

    Their d-line, which many expected them to fix last year, gets some major upgrades via USC in their first 2 picks with Ellis and Jackson. In round 3, they add some depth to their o-line as well in Richardson.


    Tennessee Titans:
    Round 1, pick 21: DE Derrick Harvey, Florida
    Round 2, pick 23: WR Limus Sweed, Texas
    Round 3, pick 21: DT Red Bryant, Texas A&M

    They add a speed rusher to line up opposite from Vanden Bosch in round 1 with Harvey. They then give VY a big, familiar target to throw to in Sweed in round 2. Finally, they add some insurance in case of losing Haynesworth in the form of Bryant.


    Dallas Cowboys:
    Round 1, pick 22: CB Leondis McKelvin, Troy
    Round 1, pick 31: HB Felix Jones, Arkansas
    Round 2, pick 31: WR Andre Caldwell, Florida
    Round 3, pick 30: MLB Ben Moffit, USC

    They certainly have the ammunition to make a run at McFadden if they want to but after adding secondary help in McKelvin, they bring in another Hog HB in Felix Jones with their 2nd first rounder. In round 2, they add a young WR to develop behind the aging Owens in Caldwell. Finally, they bring in some LB depth and special teams help in Moffit in round 3.


    Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
    Round 1, pick 23: QB Brian Brohm, Louisville
    Round 2, pick 21, DT Marcus Harrison, Arkansas
    Round 3, pick 22: WR Mario Urrutia, Louisville

    Brohm continues the tradition of big name QB's tumbling down the first round and the Bucs happily snatch him up to develop behind Garcia for a few years. They solve some problems with their interior D-line in round 2 with the Harrison pick then. In round 3, they get Brohm a familiar target to develop behind Galloway and Hilliard in the talented but unpolished Urrutia.


    Seattle Seahawks:
    Round 1, pick 24: OT Sam Baker, USC
    Round 2, pick 27: HB Mike Hart, Michigan
    Round 3, pick 26: S Jonathan Hefney, Tennessee

    They get immediate help to their o-line, and a future replacement to the great Walter Jones, in round 1 with the selection of Baker. In round 2, they get the future replacement of, and current backup to, Alexander by picking Mike Hart. Then in round 3, they get some secondary help in Hefney.


    Pittsburgh Steelers:
    Round 1, pick 25: WR Early Doucet, LSU
    Round 2: pick 24: OG Roy Schuening, Oregon St.
    Round 3, pick 27: DE Kendall Langford, Hampton

    While Santonio Holmes is starting to become a star, Hines Ward isn't getting any younger so they reel in Doucet in round 1. With Faneca likely to be lost as a FA, they bring in his replacement in Schuening in round 2. Then in round 3, after seeing how important Aaron Smith is to their run D, they pick a huge DE to back him up in Langford.


    San Diego Chargers:
    Round 1, pick 26: OT Gosder Cherilius, BC

    With their only pick in the first 3 rounds, the fairly solid Chargers address their one flaw at RT with the selection of Cherilius which will allow for Olivea to be moved inside to guard or out of the line altogether.


    NY Giants:
    Round 1, pick 27, CB Antoine Cason, Arizona
    Round 2, pick 26: OLB Shawn Crable, Michigan
    Round 3, pick 25: QB John David Booty, USC

    They add some youth to their secondary to help eliminate the aging Madison and McQuarters in the playmaking Cason. In round 2, they fix their second biggest weakness by adding Crable. Then, in round 3, they add a QB who, at worst will be a capable backup to Eli and at best, his potential replacement if he doesn't step up his game.


    Jacksonville Jaguars:
    Round 1, pick 28: WR Adarius Bowman, Ok St.
    Round 2: CB Charles Godfrey, Iowa
    Round 3: S Tom Zbikowski, Notre Dame

    While Jag fans might not want to hear it, they need another WR where Reggie Williams may yet still prove worthwhile but the rest have fizzled out. They also help out their secondary with the picks of Godfrey and Zbikowki in rounds 2 and 3.


    Green Bay Packers:
    Round 1, pick 29: CB Aquib Talib, Kansas
    Round 2, pick 29: OLB Tavares Gooden, Miami
    Round 3, pick 29: DE Tommy Blake, TCU

    They add a flood of talent to their defense with these 3 picks. Talib will help to phase out one of their aging corners in the future while Gooden will provide depth and may even become their third starter next to Barnett and Hawk. Blake is a luxury pick for them and is a 1st round talent at a 3rd round price.


    San Francisco 49ers:
    Round 1, pick 30: WR Mario Manningham, Michigan
    Round 2, pick 8: OG Eric Young, Tennessee
    Round 3, pick 8: C Steve Justice, Wake Forrest

    The niners WR corps has disappointed this year and they help to improve it by the addition of Manningham. They also add to to last years first rounder Joe Staley with their 2nd and 3rd round picks this year with a new G and C.


    Cleveland Browns:
    Round 2, pick 22: HB Matt Forte, Tulane
    Round 3, pick 21: DE Andre Fluellen, Florida St.

    Even if Jamal Lewis is brought back, he's no spring chicken so a top back is needed and they get one in round 2 with Forte. D-line depth is also an issue so they take DT/DE tweener Fluellen in round 3.


    Indianapolis Colts:
    Round 2, pick 30: OLB Xavier Adibi, V Tech
    Round 3, pick 30: TE Fred Davis, USC

    Adibi is the perfect Tony Dungy OLB and they snap him right up in round 2. As insurance in case of the loss of Dallas Clark, and just as good depth in general, the take USC TE Fred Davis in round 3.

    Niners don't need a Guard and Center that early in the draft.

    Look more towards 3-4 DL and OLB. WR is obviously a need.

      I'm not going to argue that Ryan is a horrible pick, because noone will listen.

      Hills doesn't fit our new direction of 'big' offensive lineman.

      Wheeler is a weak-side linebacker, we drafted Stephen Nicholas last year to be the future at that position.

      Choice is eh.

          Oakland Raiders:
          Round 1, pick 6: DE Vernon Gholston, Ohio St.
          Round 2, pick 5: WR Keenan Burton, Kentucky

          They bring some much needed help to their D-line in round 1 with the top pass rusher available and then in round 2, they bring in a target for last years first rounder to throw at with no other real top quality receivers around.
          Gholston good. Burton Bad.

            I don't like the Balmer pick he adds nothing but depth and would never be anything more than a roation guy, there's a lot of positons where we could use a starter and I'd rather address one of those positions before adding a 5th or 6th DT. I'm fine with all the other picks.

              If we're gonna take a QB then Woodson is the best, and I like the Thomas pick though there are other CBs I prefer over him.

                  he does not have the size to play NT and I hope we wouldn't use a 2nd round pick on a second stringer at best.

                    Beyond Brian Brohm, the Buccaneer draft is less than satisfactory. Harrison is not a legitimate solution at DT and I can't see him going within the first 2 rounds of the draft. Urrutia is a terrible pick and is exactly the type of receiver we already have in Tampa Bay. Tampa doesn't need anymore tall, slow receivers.

                        I don't see Denver passing on Phillips, particularly if they want OLB and FS with their first two picks. There will be plenty of solid OLB's available in round 2.

                        I believe Minnesota has Denver's 3rd rounder.

                          I really like the look, makes it easier to gauge multiple picks. New England gets a whole lot better. Jordy Nelson unspectacular? you're such a kidder.

                            Stovall and Clayton are actually pretty fast, but yeah, we don't need any more big possession receivers. We also don't need any first round QBs, but I like the Harrison pick other than the fact that it's a reach.

                              to get a first round talent in round 3 is pretty amazing. imagine the depth and rotations youd have. plus, as a bears fan i hate to say this, but the packers are pretty set all around
