  • DI's Updated 2 Round Mock Draft *2/28*

    2008 NFL Mock Draft
    Round 1

    * Mock was done with the idea that Vilma is a Saint and Corey Williams for Cleveland's 2nd Rounder happens*

    1. Miami Dolphins- Chris Long, DE/OLB, Virginia

    - Parcells wants a football player. Long is a football player and a damn good one and fits a need with the Dolphins as a perfect fit as the tweener type in that defense. Logical selection.

    2. St. Louis Rams- Jake Long, OT, Michigan

    - I believe that his combine workout vaulted him from #5 with KC to #2 and St. Louis. Some believe he's better suited for RT but either way, he'll replace Ogden at LT or start at RT and move Barron back to LT so it's a win-win for St. Louis.

    3. Atlanta Falcons- Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas

    - Everyone and their mother has Matt Ryan here and I dont' see it. Dimitroff stated in one of his first interviews as GM that quarterbacks taken in the draft have value late in the draft as well (Brady) so I think he's less inclined to take a QB now and take a running back that they can build an offense around.

    4. Oakland Raiders- Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU

    - A great selection for Oakland. They look to replace Warren Sapp with somewhat of a replica in Glenn Dorsey. This pick makes the most sense though Kiffin might push for Sedrick Ellis being that he coached him in USC and in the Senior Bowl but I see Dorsey being the pick.

    5. Kansas City Chiefs- Ryan Clady, OT, Boise St.

    - Think Levi Brown of last year. A player who you know will be a solid if not great pro but really shouldn't get drafted as high as he will but will because of a team need. That's Clady and KC in a nut shell.

    6. New York Jets- Vernon Gholston, DE/OLB, Ohio St.

    - You couldn't ask for a better fit at the "tweener" position that Vernon Gholston. Quick, fast, strong and kills the quarterback. Just what Eric Mangini has been looking for since taking over the reigns in New York.

    7. New England Patriots (via SF)- Quentin Groves, DE/OLB, Auburn

    - Ah. The first real "shock" pick of the draft. If this pick is not traded, corner could bsolutely be the pick here but with the uncertainty and age of the linebacking crew, the Pats take a bit of a reach for a guy who will start from day 1 and be a great outside rusher in their defense in Groves.

    8. Baltimore Ravens- Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College

    - Not as high on Matty Ice as some are and think he'll drop and at #8, it's too good a value for the Ravens to pass up. McKelvin gets a serious look, but they opt to take the quarterback of the future in Ryan.

    9. Cincinnati Bengals- Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC

    - A coup for the Bengals. One of the best players in the draft, a force on the d-line and he falls right in their laps at #9. Ellis is too good a talent to pass up and will play DT if Cincy sticks with the 4-3. He'll have a harder time finding a position in a 3-4 but make no mistake, he'll play and be a force.

    10. New Orleans Saints- Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Tennessee St.

    - Surprise pick, part II. Mr. Cromartie is rising up the draft board faster than anyone else in this draft and with his combination of size and speed, plus the fact that New Orleans is on the verge of aquiring Jonathan Vilma, they pass on taking a linebacker and choose to help this pathetic defensive secondary and take the playmaking corner who should be just as good, if not better than his cousin.

    11. Buffalo Bills- Limas Sweed, WR, Texas
    12. Denver Broncos- Keith Rivers, OLB, USC
    13. Carolina Panthers- Chris Williams, OT, Vanderbilt
    14. Chicago Bears- Jeff Otah, OT, Pittsburgh

    16. Arizona Cardinals- Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy
    17. Minnesota Vikings- Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida
    18. Houston Texans- Jonathan Stewart, RB, Oregon
    19. Philadelphia Eagles- Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida
    20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Devin Thomas, WR, Michigan St.
    21. Washington Redskins- Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma
    22. Dallas Cowboys (via CLE)- Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas

    26. Jacksonville Jaguars- Philip Merling, DE, Clemson
    27. San Diego Chargers- Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College
    28. Dallas Cowboys- Reggie Smith, CB/S, Oklahoma
    29. San Francisco 49ers (via IND)- DeSean Jackson, WR, California
    30. Green Bay Packers- Brandon Flowers, CB, Virginia Tech
    31. New England Patriots- Pick Forfeited
    32. New York Giants- Kenny Philips, S, Miami (Fl)

    Round 2

    I could see it.

      Good Houston pick, Okay 1st. Good 2nd for Baltimore. But Quentin Groves as a top 10 pick? really?

      Baltimore: 7-4


      • #4
        Terrible Packers mock. Connor or Phillips would be much better than Flowers in the first. LB is a good move in the second though I would prefer it would be Gooden. DT is not a need and sure as hell not in the second.


        • #5
          After his combine workout and his body of work in college, I feel that he'll be a great pro and his best fit would be as an outside backer in a 3-4 and besides long and gholston, i see him being the best one out of the whole "tweener" group, maybe turning out to be even better and he's a perfect fit opposite of Vrabel with Thomas moving inside with Bruschi.


          • #6
            With Oakland resigning Kelly I think Gholston is the pick in round one.

              Kenny Phillips in the first, Tavares Gooden in the second, not bad.


              • #8
                i could def see the patriots picking groves, but under the assumption they trade down into the 20s areas

                Thanks to BoneKrusher for this amazing sig!

                Go Gators/Pats/Celts/Red Sox!

                  hmm...not bad but the bears draft chart seems to be shaping up williams-mendenhall-otah now....

                  especially with collins available in 2, i could see them going mendenhall first. wouldnt surprise me at all

                    I completely agree here. If Corey Williams gets traded the Packers still have Jolly and Harrell. DT is a position that is deep for the Packers right now. Trading Williams is just opening up time for Harrell and Jolly.

                      Alright pick for the Chargers but would much prefer Phillips or Smith because the DB need is much greater than OT.


                      • #12
                        I like your first KC pick, very good explanation for it as well, but I really don't understand the second pick. Linebacker is not really a need for us. Would have preferred Antoine Cason (or any CB really) or even Chilo Rachal to help fix our oline before we drafted a linebacker.

                        Good job overall though.

                          Great first round pick for the Vikings. Bad second round pick though, Vikes don't need another WR with drop concerns.


                          • #14
                            pretty bad chargers pick. Kenny Phillips and Reggie Smith are still available does not make sense to me why they would not pick one of them. Phillips would be a dream pick for the chargers. If Phillips is available San Diego will take him.


                            • #15
                              KC will NOT reach for Clady when Ellis is on the board and RD 2 give us Godfrey
