Default NFL Mock Draft - Pool A

We held a quick 2 hour mock draft on Memorial Day with 9 teams.

QB, RB, WR, WR, RB/WR, TE
3-4 Defense or 4-3 Defense

The idea was to build a franchise from scratch that would go on forever (not necessarily to try win the Superbowl immediately).

Teams are separated into 3 Pools (grouped by draft order).

Considering the idea behind this mock, vote for the one you think is best. Some teams have chosen to build 3-4 Defenses versus 4-3 Defenses. Consider the system and the players that fit in their defense when you judge.

All votes will be tallied on Friday 12PM on the NFLDC Time Clock to determine the winner of each Pool.

************************************************** ***********

Team 1:
QB Matt Hasselback
RB Ladanian Tomlinson/Steven Jackson
WR Randy Moss/Hines Ward
TE Jeremy Shockey

DE Derrick Burgess/Michael Strahan
DT Jamal Williams/Booger Mcfarland
OLB Joey Porter/Nick Barnett
MLB Antonio Pierce
CB Rashean Mathis/Ken Lucas
S Ed Reed/Mike Brown


Team 2:
QB Tom Brady
RB Willis McGahee/Reggie Bush
WR Larry Fitzgerald/Roy Williams
TE Todd Heap

DE Kevin Williams/Ty Warren
NT Albert Haynesworth
OLB John Abraham/Kamerion Wimbley
ILB Keith Bulluck/AJ Hawk
CB Antrel Rolle/Antonio Cromartie
S Adrian Wilson/Donte Whitner


Team 3:
QB Mike Vick
RB Larry Johnson/Brian Westbrook
WR Javon Walker/Lee Evans
TE Heath Miller

DE Shaun Rogers/Darnell Dockett
NT Casey Hampton
OLB Julian Peterson/Ernie Sims
ILB Ray Lewis/Keith Brooking
CB Lito Sheppard/Carlos Rogers
S Troy Polamlu/Roy Williams



* Remember: The idea was to build a franchise from scratch that would go on forever (not necessarily to try win the Superbowl immediately). ...and consider defensive player fits in each system (3-4 and 4-3).

I can tell team 2 and 3 were trying a lot harder for long-term potential than team 1, but team one is just so superior and kickass that it doesnt even matter. Itll be hard to beat that one...the only weakness is the CBs IMO.

Team 3 made some questionable moves. Bringing in Ray Ray for the future :o or taking Lee Evans...that was another questionable move imo.

I really dislike all three... but I'll have to go with the first because they didn't use the 3-4.

I really like the selection of Bush, as he has a good Rb to work behind, and would also work as a great 3rd WR

Team 2 blew me away. Team one is ok, but didn't impress me. Team 2 may be the first team to correctly use their players in the 3-4.

Again team 1 would win a super bowl right away. But if you're looking at a long term franchis it's gotta be team 2.

Team 2 is interestingly built, though.

teams ones got my vote


expiernced qb that is cool under pressure and can handle the ball,...2 running back that can pound the rock and also can catch the ball out of the backfield,....the 2 receivers are kinda questionable because of there of there selfish natures but no doubt are a formidable duo,....shockey at te is a good pick and can also provide some leadership,...

the defense is filled with high charcter leaders and teh 2 most underated corners in teh league in mathis and lucas who are both physical good tacklers and good in man to man coverage,...linebacker provides the
oomph in this D with the tenacious all round athletic linebackers,
DE features a pass rusher(burgess)along with a solid all round veteran in strahan who can do both,...and the saftey position speaks for itself,...
but browns nature of injurys is a risk but his reward is even greater because hes a allround saftey whos physical and when he gets his hands on the ball he takes it to the house

Overall this teams filled with leaders and overacheivers and would be an
ideal situation for any coach to build around,which is why they had the BEST
draft.

Team two. With Brady you are always a threat to win now and that defense will be very good in the long term.

Team 2, to me just seems to be based completely on potential. Maybe TOO young. Team 3's offense doesn't impress me, so I went #1. Only weakness is secondary.
