    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
    15. Detroit Lions- Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illiinois

    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
    23. Pittsburgh Steelers- Branden Albert, OG, Virginia
    24. Tennessee Titans- James Hardy, WR, Indiana
    25. Seattle Seahawks- Kentwan Balmer, DT, North Carolina
    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

    33. Miami Dolphins- Pat Sims, NT, Auburn
    34. St. Louis Rams- Calais Campbell, DE, Miami (Fl)
    35. Oakland Raiders- Carl Nicks, OT, Nebraska
    36. Kansas City Chiefs- Dan Connor, MLB, Penn St.
    37. New York Jets- Sam Baker, OT, USC
    38. Atlanta Falcons- Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
    39. Baltimore Ravens- Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
    40. San Francisco 49ers- Trevor Laws, DL, Notre Dame
    41. New Orleans Saints- Philip Wheeler, OLB, Georgia Tech

    59. Jacksonville Jaguars- Justin King, CB, Penn St.

    On Manningham:

    [QUOTE=Crickett;924534] The Vikings just got rid of a deep threat who couldn't catch the ball. Why would they draft another one? QUOTE]

    I love this quote. I hate Michigan. A deep threat who runs a 4.6 sounds like a winner.

    For the Lions I like this draft a lot, Mendenhall is great (I like stewart more, but I would not complain in the least with Rashard) and Porter is a nice second rounder

    Don't really like the Packers mock, we would definitely take Phillips or Connor over Flowers, preferably Phillips but then I realised you were a Giants fan so this is clearly your dream draft. Also there's no way we draft a DT that early, we will still have a very solid DT rotation. Harrell was a first round pick last year and only played when other guys went down with injuries, he will be expected to step up and replace the production of Williams.

    Drafting a right tackle second overall is not a win situation.
    Nor is what would happen if Pace actually sticks around for a few more years.

    Guys. I think you're overestimating the effects of injuries in this day and age. Rarely are season ending injuries CAREER ending injuries anymore.

    What about the money they just shelled out to Tommy Kelly?

    Linebackers are getting older. Corners are getting 100 million dollar contracts from other teams (reportedly). You decide which is a more immediate problem.

    Really think the Chargers will pass on Phillips?

    Not the run blocker the Jets need at RT. I don't think he projects to RT in the NFL anyway.

    So the Packers traded away a DT for a second round pick just so they could draft another one?

    I like the Dorsey pick, but we could use a Wr in the second round.

    It's a pretty solid Phins mock. I would be extremely heartbroken if Kenny went one pick before us though. :(

    Hooray, a need rather than OG or LB.

    Raiders won't draft Dorsey... He is another UT Raiders resigned Kelly to a big contract. If the Raiders do draft a DT it would be Ellis who can play NT in a 43 defense.

    Gholston is another possible pick..

    would love to see the Eagles get Jenkins at 19, but I think Caldwell might be a reach in rd 2.
    I might take Merling rd 1 and Patrick Lee in rd 2 under your scenario, of course it all depends on what they do in FA

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

    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.

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

    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.
