2008 NFL Mock Draft

By: Robert Davis | Updated: 4/26

Round One | Two

  1. Miami - Jake Long, OT, Michigan
    Signed, sealed, and delivered.

  2. St. Louis - Chris Long, DE, Virginia
    Adam Carriker has bulked up to play defensive tackle, so the team grabs an edge rusher. Long is the type of player who can make an immediate impact and give the Rams a boost.

  3. Atlanta - Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
    The Falcons get the guy they want all along. There is the possibility of flipping picks with the Rams to ensure they get Dorsey and keep someone else from moving up.

  4. Oakland - Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas
    A playmaker on offense is needed. Even though the Raiders have some solid talent at RB, none of them are gamebreakers. McFadden is.

  5. Kansas City - Branden Albert, OL, Virginia
    Albert is the fastest riser of this years draft, and it appears the Chiefs are enamored with him. They feel he has the potential to be a standout left tackle.

  6. New York Jets - Vernon Gholston, DE/OLB, Ohio St.
    Adding an edge rusher like Gholston is another piece in a solid off season for the Jets. McFadden would be the pick if heís on the board, but Gholston is a solid fall back option.

  7. New England - Keith Rivers, LB, USC
    Rivers is a bit of a surprise because Belichick typically does not draft traditional linebackers. Rivers would bring a lot of speed and versatility to the unit, and allow Adalius Thomas to move outside to improve the pass rush.

  8. Baltimore - Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
    It is hard to see Ryan falling this far, but it has happened in recent years with Aaron Rodgers and Brady Quinn. Unless some trades happen, Ryan should be on the board.

  9. Cincinnati - Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC
    The Bengals have considered moving up in the draft for Dorsey or Ellis, but land Ellis at this spot anyway. He is arguably the best player available and fills a big need for the Bengals.

  10. New Orleans - D. Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Tennessee St.
    Despite the addition of Jason David last year, and Randall Gay this year, the Saints still need help at corner. They lack a top shelf corner, and if you are counting on those two corners to cover in the playoffs, you are in trouble. DRC brings big time potential and could be ready for a big role when the playoffs role around.

  11. Buffalo - Devin Thomas, WR, Michigan ST.
    Thomas looks to be the first receiver selected with his huge junior year and post season. His all around ability and size would make him a great target opposite Lee Evans.

  12. Denver - Chris Williams, OT, Vanderbilt
    Protecting Jay Cutlerís backside is a big need, and Williams is one of the better pass blockers in the draft. His experience blocking for Cutler in college is only an added benefit to his natural athleticism and intelligence.

  13. Carolina - Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida
    A tackle or an end seem like the pick here. With the retirement of Mike Rucker, the Panthers choose to go with the playmaking end.

  14. Chicago - Jeff Otah, OT, Pitt
    The run on tackles continues. Otah is the last of the top tier lineman available, so the Bears have to grab their man here. Local product Mendenhall would be tough to pass on, but there is excellent depth at the RB position, and they can grab someone to challenge or compliment Cedric Benson later in the draft.

  15. Detroit - Jerod Mayo, LB, Tennessee
    Mayo is a fast riser in the draft, and looks like the pick for the Lions in this spot. A RB would be hard to pass on, but there is solid depth at RB in the draft and the Lions will wait until the second round.

  16. Arizona - Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy
    With the run on tackles, it causes the corners to slide a little. McKelvin may go higher but if he is on the board the Cards would love to put his name on the card and send it up ASAP.

  17. Kansas City - Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida
    A defensive end to replace Jared Allen is needed, but no end is worth this selection. The secondary gets an upgrade with Jenkins and the Chiers hope to get better value at end in the second round.

  18. Houston - Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois
    Ryan Clady is tempting, but Mendenhall is the pick. His ability between the tackles and as a receiver is too much for the Texans to pass on.

  19. Philadelphia - Ryan Clady, OT, Boise St.
    Thomas and Runyan are getting up there in age, so itís a perfect spot for Clady. He has as much potential as any tackle in the class, and he wonít be forced to make an impact from Day One for the Eagles.

  20. Tampa Bay - Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
    Jon Gruden cannot get enough quarterbacks. Brohm may finally give the Bucs a long term solution.

  21. Washington - Calais Campbell, DE, Miami
    This pick should be an end or a receiver. Depth at the receiver position is better in the second and third rounds, so the Skins take the end here and hope they have found a long term answer on the edge.

  22. Dallas - DeSean Jackson, WR, Cal
    Teaming with TO gives the Cowboys as explosive a WR duo as there is in the league.

  23. Pittsburgh - Quentin Groves, DE/OLB, Auburn
    Groves could potentially be a steal this late. His ability to get to the passer is among the elite in the draft and would be a big boost to the Steeler front seven.

  24. Tennessee - Kentwan Balmer, DT, North Carolina
    A WR for Vince Young would make a lot of sense but the Titans aim for one of the most physically imposing DT duos in the league, pairing Balmer with Haynseworth.

  25. Seattle - Jonathan Stewart, RB, Oregon
    This is a case of the best player available. The player also happens to be from the state of Washington, so it is a homecoming for Stewart. Despite the signings in free agency, the Seahawks take Stewart to be the workhorse than Shaun Alexander once was.

  26. Jacksonville - Phillip Merling, DE, Clemson
    Once thought of as a high first rounder, Merling has come back down to earth and landed in an area much more deserving of his talent.

  27. San Diego - Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College
    The Chargers may be looking to fill a need moreso than other teams at this point because they do not select again until the fifth round. Cherilus would be a nice fit at right tackle for the Bolts.

  28. Dallas - Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas
    Jerry Jones wants a fellow Hog in the backfield, and Jones gets the call. A back to compliment Marion Barber is needed, and Barber could potentially leave next year as a free agent. Landing a back in this draft is high on the list for the Cowboys.

  29. San Francisco - Donnie Avery, WR, Houston
    Speed is something Martz needs in his offense, and Avery has plenty of it. He could be a huge weapon for Alex Smith in that offense.

  30. Green Bay - Brandon Flowers, CB, Virginia Tech
    Harris and Woodson are not getting any younger, so the Packers grab some youth at the corner position. Flowers is the type that can play right away, and would give the Pack an excellent trio of corners..

  31. New England - Forfeit

  32. New York Giants - Tyrell Johnson, S, Arkansas St.
    Johnson is another fast riser. He was sort of an unknown playing for Arkansas St, but the post season has seen him prove his worth as a prospect.

Continue to round two.
