so here's a totally unrealistic mock. Why? Because there are no trades that result in crappy teams digging their holes deeper by trading up for a crappy QB. I see no 1st round QBs, so I'm not forcing these middling QBs onto anybody in the 1st round. Realistically, Geno Smith, Matt Barkley, and Ryan Nassib will go in the 1st round.

so yeah. Here we go, pure BS follows:


1.01 - Kansas City - *Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M - no real explanations here. Albert to Miami trade happens, KC gets a 2nd rounder
1.02 - Jacksonville - Star Lotulelei, NT, Utah - Gus Bradley is a Carroll disciple. They just got Babin, an ideal Carroll LDE. They already have Andre Branch who is a LEO-capable player. They DESPERATELY need their NT. Lotulelei is the best defensive player in this entire draft, and Jacksonville nabbed him
1.03 - Oakland - Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan - move the Hillsdale Hulk to RT where he belongs and with Fisher and Veldheer bookending Wisniewski, their OL is set for a decade
1.04 - Philadelphia - Dion Jordan, 34 OLB, Oregon - they're switching to a 3-4 and Trent Cole is NOT a 3-4 OLB, and hey, this is Chip Kelly's boy!
1.05 - San Diego (FROM Detroit) - Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma - Afraid that Arizona or Cleveland might nab the last truly dominant LT, San Diego moves up so they can keep Rivers alive a little longer
1.06 - Cleveland - Ezekiel Ansah, 5-T, Brigham Young - Horton runs a more aggressive 3-4 on the front DL than LeBeau, so he nabs his Calais Campbell for Cleveland. They don't need to win "now" so they have time to let him develop until Rubin is ready to move on with his life's work.
1.07 - Arizona - *Sheldon Richardson, DT/5-T, Missouri - How old is Darnell Dockett? He's old. He's 32. His production has dropped. Richardson is an ideal "tweener", an explosive, aggressive beast with the explosiveness to play as a 3-tech/UT in an even front and the length and strength as a 5-tech in their hybrid front
1.08 - Buffalo - *Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee - Stevie Johnson and...Scott Jones?
1.09 - New York Jets - *Barkevious Mingo, 34 OLB, LSU - Rex loves him some bigger-framed DEs to convert. They had 30 sacks. Rookie DE Quinton Coples and Muhammad Wilkerson were the only guys with 5 or more sacks. Their OLBs are Calvin Pace, who is 900 years old, and Garrett McIntyre. Who is Garrett McIntyre? Does his mom know he plays football?
1.10 - Tennessee - Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama - CJ1K gets his mojo back with Warmack now opposite Andy Levitre. Jake Locker has 9 days in the pocket and his completion % climbs to 57.9%
1.11 - Detroit (FROM San Diego; gets 1.11, 2.45) - *Jarvis Jones, 43 DE, Georgia - they like the leaner, more explosive LEO/DE types (a la Cliff Avril)
1.12 - Miami - Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina - They have Richard Marshall, Reshad Jones, and Brent Grimes. They just picked up Dannell Ellerbe. Their DL is set. They've taken several steps to upgrade that offense, give the 2nd year RB and QB a monster on the offensive line to go alongside Branden Albert.
1.13 - New York Jets (from Tampa for Revis) - *Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State - Rex plays press man coverage. Rhodes is the best press CB in the draft. You build to beat your top opponent, and that's Tom Brady. So you build the pass rush and you build the secondary.
1.14 - Carolina - *Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida - they poop themselves when they realize he fell this far due to his stubby arms and lack of DT need up top
1.15 - San Fran (FROM NEW ORLEANS; gets 1.15, 3.75) - Kenny Vaccaro, FS, Texas - San Fran really has limited holes to fill and 4,387 draft picks this season. They desperately need a FS, here's the most pro-ready/win-right-now safety, and they steal him from St. Louis and Dallas, both of whom are looking HARD at Vaccaro)
1.16 - St. Louis - *D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama - considered Cyprien here, but I see a lot of Larry Allen in DJ Fluker and anyone with an offensive lineman named "Shelley" really needs a new OL
1.17 - Minnesota (FROM PITTSBURGH; gets 1.17, 3.79) - Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia - the Vikes lost their explosive versatile playmaker, so they trade up a few of their dozen picks with Pittsburgh.
1.18 - Dallas - *Eric Reid, FS, LSU - Jerrah is pissed that San Fran stole his #1 safety, so he goes after the next best FS from the SEC (in his mind, not mine)
1.19 - New York Giants - *Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State - Bjoern Werner was tempting, but when David Diehl is your starter, your franchise QB is in trouble
1.20 - Chicago - *Arthur Brown, 43 MLB, Kansas St - they require coverage ability out of their MLB. Brown has high football IQ and is arguably the best, most explosive MLB in the draft
1.21 - Cincinnati - Jonathan Cyprien, SS, Florida International - because he's a frickin' monster and Zimmer deserves more cowbell
1.22 - St. Louis (from Washington for RGIII) - *Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama - well, we got Fluker, we nabbed Jake Long, we lost SJax; are we really going to rely on Isiaih Pead? He has way too many vowels in his name
1.23 - Pittsburgh (FROM MINNESOTA; gets 1.23, 2.51) - *Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame - Heath is old and broke, and Plaxico is 36 and the only target over 5'2 for Ben
1.24 - Indianapolis - *Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama - he fell this far because a torn labrum is the latest of his 5 collegiate surgeries.
1.25 - Minnesota (from Seattle) - Sylvester Williams, NT, North Carolina - He plays alongside Kevin now, and takes over for him in 2 seasons
1.26 - Green Bay - Jesse Williams, NT/DT, Alabama - this one was tough and a particularly useful fit. GBP likes their nickel defense as a base, which means 2 down linemen have to play ALOT. The problem is that you can get gouged by the run if your DL are fat, slow, and not good at stopping the run. Jesse Williams is the 2nd best run stopper in this draft, and he is in fantastic shape, so he can stay on the field for all 3 downs without sucking wind. His anchor allows Raji to be the penetrator, a role he's better suited for, and hey, SOMEBODY has to be there to tackle Adrian Peterson
1.27 - Houston - DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson - the best and most pro-ready WR in this draft (in my opinion). If Q Boldin ran a 4.5, he'd be DeAndre Hopkins. Enormous, strong hands, he's another "jump ball" guy for Schaub to huck it up to
1.28 - Denver - Datone Jones, DE, UCLA - so underrated, Denver needs to replace Dumervil. They have their weakside pass rusher (yeah, he moves everywhere), but they now have a guy in Datone Jones who can pressure the QB AND play the run, something Dumervil never really did that well
1.29 - New England - Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington - Bili Beli is still looking for help in the secondary. Considered Hayden, but figured Bili Beli would be gunshy about health problems after going after Ras I-Dowling
1.30 - Atlanta - *Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M - for all the talk about his slow 40 and middling bench press, he had some of the best explosion #s in the combine, and unlike Jarvis Jones, the defense wasn't patterned around getting him free. Oh yeah, he has Chandler Jones-esque arm length, and he's 20.
1.31 - New Orleans (FROM SAN FRAN; gets 1.31, 2.34, 3.93) - Jamie Collins, 34 OLB, Southern Mississippi - the BEST PASS RUSHING 3-4 OLB IN THIS DRAFT. Yeah, I said it.
1.32 - Baltimore - Terron Armstead, OT, Arkansas-Pine Bluff - Oher is only a blindsider for a lefty. You don't protect your blindside with this buffoon, you move him to RT where he belongs and give Baltimore's zone system another semi-raw athlete to develop (Which Baltimore does rather well, unfortunately)

Falcons pick works for me bro i like Moore and don't put much thought into his combine. His play on the field is enough for me to like him.

I'd prefer Cyprien over Rhodes at 13. CB is not a big need for us.

I could potentially see that move up for the Vikings, very slim chance, probably less than 10%, but the fact that Spielman didn't lose a pick in the exchange means he might be more apt to do it. But still not all that likely with the balance of this draft being the depth from pick 10 to 90 or so, Vikings will want to have their 2nd round pick still.

Trufant and CB are very realistic and good picks for the Pats. Good, unique mock overall.

a little much taking Reid at 18...I would think Dallas would take that trade with Minnesota and move down...then take Reid at 23


Peace

The Browns don't have a need at DE or OT. Give the Milliner or Mingo there.

why Mingo? If you don't have a need at DE, you don't have a need at OLB with Kruger and Sheard

No to OG that high. Floyd should be the pick. Also your not funny.
