2005 NFL Mock Draft
By: Robert Davis | Updated: 4/20/2005
First Round | Second Round
San Francisco Alex Smith, QB, Utah
--Barring any contract problems, Smith appears to have edged ahead of Rodgers.
Miami Ronnie Brown, RB, Auburn
--They need a top notch back to balance their offense.
Cleveland Braylon Edwards, WR, Michigan
--They donít like the QBís, donít need, an RB, they take the BPA on their board.
Chicago Cedric Benson, RB, Texas
--They get the steady Benson to help gain more consistency in their offense.
Tampa Bay Aaron Rodgers, QB, Cal
--Once Smith was taken first, they decided to not move up. At this point with Brown gone, they still get a QB, just not their top guy.
Tennessee Antrel Rolle, CB, Miami
--Even though it is very difficult for Norm Chow to not get Mike Williams, corner and tackle are bigger needs. With no tackle worth the pick, they take the best corner in the draft.
Minnesota(Oak) Mike Williams, WR, USC
--The Vikes may end up moving up in the draft. Picks 2 and 3 may be up for grabs, and in order for them to secure a WR they may have to get ahead of Tampa and Tennessee.
Arizona Cadillac Williams, RB, Auburn
--A big play back would be a welcomed addition to the Cards offense.
Washington Adam Jones, CB, West Virginia
--After letting Smoot go, they need a playmaking corner to fill that hole.
Detroit Derrick Johnson, OLB, Texas
--The slide ends, and is by far BPA at this point.
Dallas Demarcus Ware, OLB, Troy
--Parcells needs an elephant end/linebacker in his defense, and Ware's pass rush ability is second to none.
12. San Diego(NYG) Khalif Barnes, OT, Washington
--The San Diego high school product returns home. His upside at LT is as much as anyone in this draft.
13. Houston Alex Barron, OT, Florida St.
--Him and Barnes have the athleticism to be standout LT's. They could go in any order here.
14. Carolina Troy Williamson, WR, South Carolina
--With Muhammad moving on, they need another wideout to keep their offense moving.
15. Kansas City Shawne Merriman, DE, Maryland
--Expected to go a bit higher, but the Chiefs are very happy he's still on the board.
16. New Orleans Thomas Davis, S/OLB, Georgia
--Whether its at OLB or S, Davis brings a lot of athleticism and playmaking potential.
17. Cincinnati Carlos Rogers, CB, Auburn
--BPA at this point, and the shutdown corner Marvin Lewis lacks in his defense.
18. Minnesota Erasmus James, DE, Wisconsin
--With WR being addressed earlier, they get themselves another pass rusher here. Their defense will be one of the most improved units in the league.
19. St. Louis Jammal Brown, OT, Oklahoma
--With Pace signed long term, they turn their attention to RT, which has been a hole since Turley left the lineup.
20. Dallas(Buffalo) Marcus Spears, DL, LSU
--Dallas may move this pick, but with Spears still left, it may be a spot many teams trade up for the rights to Spears.
Jacksonville Fabian Washington, CB, Nebraska
--His speed and playmaking ability would fit great opposite Rashean Mathis.
Baltimore Mark Clayton, WR, Oklahoma
--Even with Derrick Mason aboard, they still need talent at WR. Clayton is a steal this late.
Seattle David Pollack, DE, Georgia
--An all around talent at end that doesn't have the ideal measurables, but just makes plays.
Green Bay Chris Spencer, C, Ole Miss
--Can play guard or center, and GB has had some FA defections inside. Charlie Frye may be the pick here, as he probably will not last to their second rounder.
Washington(from Denver) Jason Campbell, QB, Auburn
--Rumors around say that they made the move with Denver for Campbell. Time will tell.
N.Y. Jets Heath Miller, TE, Virginia
--With Anthony Becht moving on, the Jets improve at the TE spot here.
. Atlanta Travis Johnson, DT, Florida St.
--The Falcons need help on the interior line, and Johnson would give them some interior pass rush ability.
San Diego Shaun Cody, DE, USC
--The Vikes take another SoCal kid in the first. Cody is the ideal 34 end and would provide an immediate impact on the line.
Indianapolis Mike Patterson, DT, USC
--Dungy needs a penetrator inside at tackle to make his D most effective.
Pittsburgh Matt Jones, WR/TE, Arkansas
--With Burress moving on, they need an intermediate threat, and Jones has a ton of potential.
Philadelphia Roddy White, WR, UAB
--Even with TO, they need more WR help. If TO continues to speak out, he may not be around much longer.
New England Justin Miller, CB, Clemson
--The Pats do not have a true #1 corner, and Miller has that type of potential.
