  • Diab's First Mock of the Season

    1. Carolina Panthers – Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
    With no clear cut standout player in this year's draft, Carolina opts for the player that should have the most impact in a position of need.

    2. Denver Broncos – Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson
    John Fox has stated that he'll stick with the 3-4 and give some 4-3 looks, either way he needs an impact pass rusher outside of Dumervil and Bowers excels at just that.

    3. Buffalo Bills – Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
    The former LSU standout could play either CB or S and would be a best player available selection.

    4. Cincinnati Bengals – A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
    It was apparent that the Bengals need a playmaker at wide receiver and Green is a human highlight reel.

    5. Arizona Cardinals – Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
    The Prince arrives in Phoenix as the Cardinals would now possess two great young corners.

    6. Cleveland Browns – Marcel Dareus, DE, Alabama
    He can be a 5 tech if the Browns stick with the 3-4 or a DT in a 4-3. Either way he should make a difference.

    7. San Francisco – Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
    A new regime means a new QB in the city by the Bay.

    8. Tennessee Titans – Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina
    There is a strong possibility that the Titans will target a veteran QB in free agency or trade for one with this possibly being Jeff Fisher's last year in Tennessee. Quinn fills a need at DE and helps them get better along the DL.

    9. Dallas Cowboys – J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin
    Igor Olshansky has not had the impact the Cowboys were expecting him to have when they signed him as a FA so Watt, who is a massive disruptor, can come in and be the 5-tech they need in that 3-4.

    10. Washington Redskins – Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
    The trade for McNabb didn't pan out and Newton would be Shanahan's QB of the future.

    11. Houston Texans – Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA
    In Wade Phillip's new 3-4 scheme the Texans will need a playmaker opposite Mario Williams and Ayers fits the 3-4 perfectly.

    12. Minnesota Vikings – Jake Locker, QB, Washington
    Once again the Vikings are in the hunt for a QB and this time they have one fall into their lap.

    13. Detroit Lions – Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
    The Lions secondary was fairly horrible last year and while Harris is a bit of reach it is a much needed reach.

    14. St. Louis Rams – Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
    Young QB Sam Bradford needs weapons to throw to and Jones fills that void.

    15. Miami Dolphins – Ryan Mallet, QB, Arkansas
    The 'Fins are in need of a franchise QB and they have one of the top four in this draft fall to them which is fortunate since Chad Henne has not panned out.

    16. Jacksonville Jaguars – Cam Jordan, DE, Cal
    Surprise pick Tyson Alualu helped shore up a shaky DL but the Jags still need more of a pass rush opposite Aaron Kampmann so they go back to the same program that produced Alualu..

    17. New England Patriots – Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
    Rob Ninkovich has performed well but an explosive OLB is needed to replace journeyman Tully Banta-Cain.

    18. San Diego Chargers – Gabe Carimi, OT, USC
    While the Chargers could use a pass rusher, they also desperately need to get the running game going and Clary just isn't helping at RT. Carimi is a big, massive mauler who would help open up running lanes for Ryan Matthews and company.

    19. New York Giants – Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State
    Eli Manning was on his butt a lot last year so they bring in someone to protect him. Sherrod is extremely athletic and is solid in all aspects..

    20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri
    The Bucs invested two picks on their DL last year and go back to addressing that this year with Smith, whose an explosive pass rusher that they need when playing against Drew Brees and Matt Ryan.

    21. Kansas City Chiefs – Justin Houston, LB, Georgia
    Mike Vrabel is washed up and the Chiefs could use another pass rusher opposite Tamba Hali.

    22. Indianapolis Colts – Tyron Smith, OT, USC
    Charlie Johnson proved that he wasn't a LT this year and it was evident in the amount of pressure put on Peyton Manning. Smith is adept at pass protection and while he may need a few years to reach his potential he is worth taking.

    23. Philadelphia Eagles – Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
    The Eagles could also target OG/OT with this pick but their secondary was nothing to write home about and it needs help. Smith is shooting up drafts boards and would go far as to solidifying their secondary.

    24. New Orleans Saints – Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M
    It was painfully evident that the Saints needed help at outside linebacker this year. Miller is an excellent blitzer and should excel in a Gregg William’s attacking scheme.

    25. Seattle Seahawks – Aaron Williams, CB, Texas
    Kelly Jennings is a FA and Marcus Trufant isn't the player he once was. Williams has a knack for making the big play and was tested by top competition.

    26. Baltimore – Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State
    The Ravens could go in several directions here as they could use a top notch LT and another ILB but Heyward helps provide youth and depth along a DL and would seem to be an Ozzie Newsome pick.

    27. Atlanta – Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa
    John Abraham is nearing the end of his career and there is nothing opposite him. Clayborn is solid at both rushing the pass rusher and stopping the run and should help secure the Falcons DL.

    28. New England – Stefen Wisniewski, C, Penn State
    The Pats need help at RG and an eventual replacement for Dan Koppen at C. Wisniewski can come in and fill that void at RG and be groomed to take over for Koppen in a few years.

    29. Chicago Bears – Marcus Cannon, OG, TCU
    The Bears offensive line outperformed its talent level this year and there has been an issue for quite some time in the Windy City. Cannon can play either LG or LT and is a step towards protecting Jay Cutler.

    30. New York Jets – Allen Bailey, DE, Miami
    While the Jets could use a replacement RT, Rex Ryan's defense revolves around getting pressure up front on defense and they need to inject some talent there. Bailey is a freak of nature and should excel in an attacking scheme like the Jets run.

    31. Pittsburgh Steelers – Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College
    Steelers fans would like Mike Pouncey but his stock seems to be dropping. One thing that fans of the Steel City can agree is that they need help along the O-line and Castonzo can step in and play either LT or RT, both of which are positions of need.

    32. Green Bay Packers – Nate Solder, OT, Colorado
    While the Packers could use an OLB or CB, the value just isn't there with this pick. Current Packers LT Chad Clifton turns 35 before the start of next season. Although he signed a 3 year extension earlier in 2010 he will need to be replaced sooner than later. Solder fits the ZBS that Green Bay runs and would give them a pair of bookend tackles with last year's first round draft pick Brian Bulaga for many years to come.

      Before tweaking the mock I had Locker to SF but I think Gabbert's stock is highest right now

        Stop doing this.

        I like Locker a lot, more than most. But the truth is, most scouts view him as a late 1st-2nd round pick. Can he rise with a great senior bowl/workouts/interviews/etc. ? Sure he can. But at this point he's not going to go as high as #7. Just because Locker is your favorite player in this draft and the 49ers are your favorite team, doesn't mean they can't or won't pass on Locker.

          Smith should skyrocket up draft boards and Dallas is in desperate need of OL help. The Cowboys don't usually draft OL early in the draft but this year they should make an exception.
          I just can't see Jerry taking an offensive lineman with a top 10 pick, especially since we already have our LT of the future. During Jerry's time with the Cowboys he has always addressed OL though FA, I just don't see him changing that here, especially since this would be reaching for a RT in the top 10. I wouldn't be opposed to Smith, but it's just not Jerry's style. JJ Watt or Cameron Jordan make more sense if we couldn't trade out.

          1. Myles Jack | LB | UCLA
          2. Vernon Butler | DT | LA Tech
          3. Karl Joseph | SS | WVU

              Thanks for the input. I'll keep that in mind for when I tweak this after the conference championship round.

                    I've been thinking about Clayborne for us more and more. I'm not sure how I feel about tweeners with one year of production though. (coughJamaalAndersoncough)

                      We must now fight because you've given the Bears a pick that makes too much sense to actually happen, thus getting my hopes up for a sensible selection.

                              Why not? Just out of curiosity...
