3 Round Mock....I spent some time on it, gimme good and bad criticism, i think i did a good job though

Round 1

1. Houston- Reggie Bush, RB, Southern California- The obvious pick here, Reggie could be an unstoppable force at numerous positions (RB, WR, PR/KR) for the Texans. With Carr, Davis, Johnson and Moulds, this offense could be very good.

2. New Orleans- D’Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia- Although most think they will trade the pick, getting Ferguson isn’t such a bad second option. If Bush didn’t declare, it’s hard not to think Ferguson would’ve been the first pick overall.

3. Tennessee- Matt Leinart, QB, Southern California- Steve McNair is on his way out either this year or in the next few years, and the Titans want the sure thing. They go with Leinart because out of the Big 3, he has proven the most as a QB that can play in the NFL with a strong enough arm and great reads.

4. New York Jets- Mario Williams, DE, North Carolina St.- He is the best player available at this point, and with John Abraham leaving this off-season, Mario is the best pick here. He tore up the combine, and will be a good fit for the Jets at 4.

5. Green Bay- A.J. Hawk, OLB, Ohio State- While Vernon Davis may help Aaron Rodgers in the future, and Vince Young could be the next Michael Vick, the Packers take the sure thing here in taking Hawk. OLB is one of, if not the biggest need for the Packers, and Hawk is just an animal on the football field that will succeed in Green Bay.

6. San Francisco- Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland- The 49’ers have absolutely no WR’s, and last year Alex Smith had to pay for it. He looked awful throwing to no one’s, and with the loss of Brandon Lloyd, the only real threat, the 49’ers have no one, so they take the Freak in Vernon Davis which should produce a great combo for years to come.

7. Oakland- Vince Young, QB, Texas- All this talk about Andrew Walter and how the Raiders really like him can be thrown out the window since the top 2 defensive prospects (Williams and Hawk) are both gone, the Raiders can’t pass on Vince Young. He has the potential to be great, and with losing Kerry Collins, the Raiders need a quarterback badly, so Vince is the right pick here.

8. Buffalo- Brodrick Bunkley, DT, Florida State- Forever it was Ngata here, but ever since a source said the Bills didn’t think he would fit their scheme, attention has focused towards Bunkley, a guy whose stock has been going up like crazy since the combine. The Bills need a DT, and the quick Bunkley should be a great player.

9. Detroit- Michael Huff, DB, Texas- Somehow they manage to pass on Santonio Holmes, but the right pick here is Huff. He is the best player available at this point and fills a big secondary void for the Lions. He is a player that can start right away, whether it is at Safety or Cornerback. He’s a very versatile, quick, hard-hitting player that should go great in the NFL.

10. Arizona- Winston Justice, OT, Southern California- He has been moving up the draft board faster than anyone in the draft because of his combine as well as his pro day at USC, and is a good fit for the Cardinals, who have said they want to part of Cutler.

11. St. Louis- Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa- This is a questionable pick right here, but I don’t think Jimmy Williams is the right pick. Greenway is a great OLB which the Rams could use greatly along side newly acquired Will Witherspoon and he is a player that will be able to play right away. He is a little bigger than Ernie Sims, and seems like the right pick here.

12. Cleveland- Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon- The Browns take the best player available, a player that easily could’ve been taken in the top 10. Ngata will plug up the middle in the 3-4 defense he will play in. Romeo Crennel is a big defensive guy, and this is a good pick for a struggling defensive line.

13. Baltimore- Jimmy Williams, DB, Virginia Tech- The Ravens have to be very pleased that Jimmy Williams fell to them at 13. Jimmy is a fast and quick defensive back that will be able to play either Safety or cornerback in the NFL, and the Ravens need both, so Jimmy is the right pick here.

14. Philadelphia- Ernie Sims, OLB, Florida State- I really believe in the Eagles young wide receiving core enough that they don’t need to spend their first pick on one. Instead, they take the next biggest need at OLB, and take Ernie Sims, who is a monster athlete with blazing speed for an OLB (4.50).

15. Denver (via ATL)- Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio State- This is a great pick and a great steal for the Broncos for their first of 2 first-round picks. Santonio is the best WR in the draft, and the Broncos desperately need one with the aging Rod Smith, and the other young wide receivers still not there yet. Santonio gives the Broncos a great, fast, down-field threat.

16. Miami- Chad Jackson, WR, Florida- The Dolphins easily could’ve taken a cornerback here, but I don’t think any warrant this pick. Chad Jackson gives Culpepper a big, fast target that can get up for the ball like Moss did, and can also run after the catch.

17. Minnesota- Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt- The last of the Big 3 is finally taken to round out the top 10. Minnesota needs a QB, but not right away. If Johnson sticks around 1 or 2 more years, it could give Cutler some time to become better without having to step into a starter’s role right away. When he does come in, he will have a great target in last year’s 1st round pick Troy Williamson.

18. Dallas- Manny Lawson, DE, North Carolina St.- Demarcus Ware all over again? You bet it is. Manny Lawson bumped his stock up incredibly after running an unthinkable 4.43 forty at the combine, and should be a great OLB in the Cowboys 3-4 scheme.

19. San Diego- Marcus McNeil, OT, Auburn- This is a need pick for the Chargers here, so they go with McNeil. He is a very big tackle with great feet that will succeed and help LT.

20. Kansas City- Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State- Tamba is one of the most underrated players in the draft and not a lot of teams know about him. He is a little small, but plays like he has Mario Williams’ size and strength, and that should help him in the pros.

21. New England- Bobby Carpenter, OLB, Ohio State- Although he wasn’t even the best linebacker from his school to enter the draft, Bobby Carpenter will be a fine pro. He will fit in perfectly in the 3-4 for the Patriots and should start right away. He is a great player with great size and speed, and is a good pick for the Patriots.

22. San Francisco- Kamerion Wimbley, OLB, Florida State- Although he played DE in college, he will be able to transition nicely to OLB. He is fast enough, and will be a big LB, but will be too small to be a DE in the NFL, so this is a good pick for the Niners after losing Andre Carter.

23. Tampa Bay- Tye Hill, DB, Clemson- He had one of the best combines this year, and it probably bumped him into the 1st round. Tampa Bay has an aging secondary, and Tye should come in right away and succeed.

24. Cincinnati- Antonio Cromartie, DB, Florida State- He is an excellent player whose stock dropped a lot because of a knee injury. For his size, he has great speed and is just a pure athlete. It also fills a gap in the secondary for the Bengals older cornerbacks, that can either play safety or cornerback because of his size.

25. New York Giants- Jason Allen, DB, Tennessee- The Giants probably would have gone with a LB, but the signing of Lavar Arrington changed that. Allen’s stock has been rising, and he should be a good fit for the Giants.

26. Chicago- Marcedes Lewis, TE, UCLA- He dropped a little bit because of his 40 time (4.82) but the Bears are in need of a big pass-catching tight end. There is no way that they can pass on Marcedes after he dropped this far. He should be used right away and be a nice target for Rex Grossman and his young offensive group.

27. Carolina- Deangelo Williams, RB, Memphis- Once again, he is the best player available on the board, and the Panthers could use a running back for the future. Deangelo was once thought of as a top 10 pick, but he has slipped, but I still think he will be a great runner and is a good pick for the Panthers at 17.

28. Jacksonville- Thomas Howard, OLB, UTEP- Daryl Smith is a great player, but who can compliment him on the other side? Thomas Howard can. Some say he does not have 1st round potential, but he is a great player that will step in right away for the Jaguars.

29. New York Jets (via DEN)- Lendale White, RB, Southern California- Forget about the bad combine, pro day and hamstring injury. Willis McGahee anyone? It is only going to keep him out for about a month, and the numbers don’t lie. He holds the record for TD’s at USC, and will be a great replacement for Curtis Martin.

30. Indianapolis- Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota- They really wanted Lendale, but can be satisfied with Maroney as well. He is still a big back, but has the quickness and agility of an Edgirrin James, who they lost to free agency this year. Running back is the biggest need here for the Colts, so Maroney is the safe and obvious pick here.

31. Seattle- Max Jean-Gilles, OG, Georgia- While it is the biggest need for the Seahawks, Max Jean-Gilles is also a steal for the Seahawks at 31. He is a massive man with great movement and is very strong. He is very quick off the ball, and is a good replacement for Steve Hutchinson.

32. Pittsburgh- Donte Whitner, DB, Ohio State- Chris Hope was lost to free agency, and Troy Polamalu needs a counter part. Enter Donte Whitner. He was a great athlete for the Buckeyes last year, and had a great combine that moved him to this position. It is a need pick for the Steelers, but also fits their scheme well and will start from day 1.

Round 2
33. Houston- Eric Winston, OT, Miami- Probably could’ve been a first rounder, but everyone knows the 1st pick in the 2nd round is a first round quality player. The Texans get an immediate upgrade to help Bush run all day.

34. New Orleans- D’Qwell Jackson, ILB, Maryland- The need for the Saints here is a linebacker after taking going with Ferguson in the first round. D’Qwell is the best linebacker still on the board, and should start right away for the Saints.

35. New York Jets- Nick Mangold, C, Ohio State- With the Jets losing All-Pro Center Kevin Mawae to free agency, a need for a center is a must. Nick Mangold is a great player that could’ve gone in the first, but didn’t and is a good pick for the Jets here.

36. Green Bay- Charles Spencer, OG, Pittsburgh- He fell because of his weight and speed, but still, as a football player in general, he is a great athlete and has great potential if he can gain a little quickness in his feet. He should compete right away for the Packers starting guard position.

37. Denver- Leonard Pope, TE, Georgia- The Broncos desperately need a tight end, and so they take the giant that is Leonard Pope. At almost 6’8’’, he ran an unbelievable 4.62 forty. It fills a need for the Broncos while also giving them a sure red-zone threat that can catch the ball while also taking some pressure off Ashley Lelie and Santonio Holmes.

38. Oakland- Darnell Bing, DB, Southern California- Derrick Gibson is not the answer, and their secondary needs desperate help. Darnell Bing has showed he can play on the big stage, and for a while was considered a first round prospect. However, he dropped a little after the combine, but is still a good pick here.

39. Tennessee- Abdul Hodge, ILB, Iowa- This is the obvious pick here. Brad Kassell is gone and the Titans need to fill the void at inside linebacker, and with D’Qwell Jackson already off the board, Hodge is the best inside linebacker available.

40. Detroit- Taitusi Lutui, OG, USC- It’s not hard to see that Lutui has the skills to play at the next level after seeing what Thunder and Lightning did last year. Lutui is the best Guard available and the Lions could desperately use a young guard.

41. Arizona- Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College- After being pounded into the turf numerous times by D’Brickashaw Ferguson at the senior bowl practices, his stock started to go down and it seems like it hasn’t stopped. However, he is a great athlete that will fit in great in Arizona. He ran an O.K. forty time at 4.75, and should do alright in the NFL.

42. Buffalo- Jonathon Scott, OT, Texas- Mike Williams was lost to free agency this off-season, and they need a starter. Scott is a massive tackle with great hands and feet that will be very productive in the NFL.

43. Cleveland- Jonathon Joseph- DB, South Carolina- Like most corners in this year’s draft, he is very raw with a lot of talent. He has blazing speed with decent size for a cornerback. The Browns need an upgrade there, and with most of the decent linebackers gone at this point, they look to Joseph for an upgrade at cornerback.

44. Baltimore- Daniel Bullocks, DB, Nebraska- Daniel is a great, speedy safety that has decent coverage skills. He plays the run great and is a hard hitter, something that more and more safeties are beginning to do. This is an upgrade with Ed Reed, Samari Rolle and Chris McAllister back there, and with the loss of Will Demps, this is a solid pick.

45. Philadelphia- Gabe Watson, DT, Michigan- Watson fell this far because of his tendency to take plays off and be lazy. However, I think the NFL will straighten him out, and he will be a stud. This is a big need pick for the Eagles due to the cut of Corey Simon, and he should start right away.

46. St. Louis- Claude Wroten, DT, Louisiana State- The Rams passed on Haloti Ngata, but in the second round they get another player that is just like Ngata. Wroten is a very fast DT on the field and at the same time is very strong. He is a little on the small side, but is still a good fit for the Rams who lost Damione Lewis and Ryan Pickett this off season.

47. Atlanta- Ashton Youboty, DB, Ohio State- Another pick that could’ve gone in the first round slips to the second, and the Falcons take a cornerback with their first pick to offset Deangelo Hall. Ohio State produces great cornerbacks, and this should be no exception.

48. Minnesota- Demeco Ryans, OLB, Alabama- The Vikings have a need at OLB, and by going with Cutler in the first round, Demeco fills that void. Demeco slipped a little bit because of the deep depth at OLB, but is still a great prospect.

49. Dallas- Sinorice Moss, WR, Miami- Some may say he won’t slip this far, but I think his size will scare off some teams in the early second round and the Cowboys need some depth at wide receiver, having practically no one after T.O. and Terry Glenn, both who are getting up there in age.

50. San Diego- Richard Marshall, DB, Fresno State- He is kind of an unknown because he didn’t play in a major confrence, but still he is a great player with tremendous speed and coverage skills. With some off season moves, the Chargers are in need of a cornerback.

51. Minnesota- Ko Simpson, DB, South Carolina- The Vikings need a safety as Corey Chavous is looking for a deal and Darren Sharper is getting older, so they take a boom or bust pick with Simpson. Sharper is more of the big hitter, run stopper safety so Ko can focus on being a cover safety right away. He is very young and raw but could be a player.

52. New England- Joseph Addai, RB, Louisiana State- He really bumped up his stock at the combine after running a 4.40, but I don’t think he has first round potential with all the running backs ahead of him, so he lands here to the Patriots. He is a little small and injury prone, but should be a good player for the Pats. Corey Dillon is also getting up there, so for now he will be a 3rd down back and will find his way into the starting lineup soon enough.

53. Washington- Roger McIntosh, OLB, Miami- With their first pick of the draft, the Redskins address their biggest need for 06’ by getting McIntosh, a stud athlete that plays tough. After losing Lavar Arrington, the Skins hope McIntosh will fill that void.

54. Kansas City- Brodie Coyle, QB, Alabama- Trent Green isn’t getting any younger, and the Chiefs are looking for a replacement. Coyle had a great senior year and has a gun for an arm. He has had some injury problems, but still should be a good pick for the Chiefs.

55. Cincinnati- Dominique Byrd, TE, USC- This is a big need for the Bengals after losing their only player that resembled a tight end in Matt Schobel, so Byrd is a good pick to add to the arsenal of the Bengals.

56. New York Giants- Rodrique Wright, DT, Texas- He fell a little due to off the field issues, but if he can get past that he can be great. He has a great burst off the line, and has great all around speed. He should compliment the Giants great DE’s nicely.

57. Chicago- Demetrius Williams, WR, Oregon- The Bears continue to add to their young wide receiving corps, and with the addition of Lewis in the first round, they would be wise to add a wide out like Williams.

58. Carolina- Joe Klopfenstein, TE, Colorado- Although Carolina’s game doesn’t feature a tight end all that often, it doesn’t hurt to have a guy like Klopfenstein on your side of the ball. If he can gain a few pounds and work on blocking, he could be a player.

59. Tampa Bay- Jon Alston, OLB, Stanford- The Bucs need a linebacker at this point after going cornerback in round 1, and Alston is a big steal in my opinion. He is undersized but ran a 4.40 forty time and is like the Thomas Davis of this year. He should find a spot somewhere in Tampa as a replacement for Derrick Brooks if he can add a few pounds.

60. Jacksonville- Davin Joseph, OG, Oklahoma- The Jags O-Line struggled last year, and it started with the Guard position. Davin Joseph is a monster inside and will really help the Jaguars this year right away.

61. Denver- Darryl Tapp, DE, Virginia Tech- The last of the surprising drops is over, as Tapp is taken here. The Broncos finish a very solid first 2 rounds by taking a good pass rushing defensive end.

62. Indianapolis- Gerris Wilkinson, ILB, Georgia Tech- The Colts really would’ve liked Jon Alston, but Wilkinson is an absolute animal with a non-stop motor on the field. Gives a great effort all the time and never misses a game due to injury and should be a nice fit for the Colts.

63. Seattle- Cedric Griffin, DB, Texas- He is a big cornerback with decent speed. He is worth this pick for the Hawks because he will compete with Kelly Herndon. He may be a little slow, but is a big hitter that will help with the run as well and should be a good player in the NFL.

64. Pittsburgh- Derek Hagan, WR, Arizona State- After losing Randle El, and with Hines Ward aging a little bit, Hagan is the right pick here. He is a big target for Ben Rothelisberger and should fit into the system well. .

Round 3

65. Houston- Jason Spitz, OG, Louisville- After getting Winston in round 2, they continue upgrading their O-Line with Spitz, who will play guard for them. He is a big body with a few years of learning could be a great player.

66. Houston (from New Orleans)- Parys Haralson, DE, Tennessee- A good pickup for the Texans on the defensive side of the ball after going offense with the first 3 picks. Haralson was a great player in college at Tennessee but lacks a little size that he makes up with his speed and great push off the ball.

67. Green Bay- Martin Nance, WR, Florida- With Javon Walker throwing a hissy fit, and Donald Driver being the only real receiver on this team, the Pack get Martin Nance in the 3rd round. He has the size and enough speed to forget about Javon, and should be a number 2 right away for the Packers.

68. Denver- Daryn Colledge, OT, Boise State- He’s no D’Brickashaw Ferguson, but at the same time he is a great pickup at this point. He could’ve been a good second round pick, but is a little smaller than some teams would’ve liked. He is a great pass blocker and if he can put some weight on could be a great one.

69. Oakland- John McCargo, DT, North Carolina St.- My steal of the draft. This kid is a great, quick player that was completely over shadowed by Mario Williams and Manny Lawson. He gets in the backfield very quick and I think will be one of the more successful later round players.

70. Buffalo (from TEN)- Danieal Manning, DB, Abilene Christian- This kid is from a very small school, but that doesn’t say anything about him at all. He signed with Nebraska out of high school, but ended up going small school. He is very versatile. He can either play corner or safety, and is a special teams highlight reel.

71. New York Jets- Jason Avant, WR, Michigan- This is a value pick here for the Jets. Avant isn’t a need but he plays a lot bigger than he is, has great hands and will go up and get a jump ball. This is a good pick for the Jets when you look at their current receiver depth.

72. Arizona- Terna Nande, OLB, Miami- An unbelievable athlete that will be a great fit for the Cardinals. He is very quick and a great specimen on special teams as well. He has a great on the field presence. His only downside is size, but with his heart,it shouldn’t matter.

73. Buffalo- Charlie Whitehurst, QB, Clemson- Buffalo needs a real QB. J.P. Losman is clearly not the answer, and Kelly Holcomb is getting older. Craig Nall will never be more than a backup, so taking Whitehurst seems like a good idea.

74. Detroit- Ryan O’Callaghan, OT, California- He has great broadness and great size. His speed is decent for his size, and the only downside to his game is that he has had past injury problems. Detroit’s O-Line is not the youngest in the league and O’Callaghan is a good steal here.

75. New England (from BAL)- Kelly Jennings, DB, Miami- They have had a cornerback issue ever since Ty Law left, and haven’t done a lot to address it. Jennings is a big, fast cornerback that could come in right away and fight for the job.

76. Philadelphia Eagles- Greg Jennings, WR, Western Michigan- Yes, I said I liked their receiving corps, but still it could use some depth. Jennings is a speedy receiver that can compliment Reggie Brown and Co. Plus, they went OLB and DT the first two rounds, addressing their other 2 needs, so a WR here isn’t a bad move.

77. St. Louis- Anthony Fasano, TE, Notre Dame- If you watched any of their games, this kid was a beast. He is very fast and quick between the lines, is a great blocker, but most of all is a receiving threat, something the Rams don’t have really. He should see a lot of action and will add to that arsenal Mark Bulger has.

78. Cleveland- Maurice Drew, RB, UCLA- The Browns need someone to compliment Droughns, so they take the best running back left in Maurice Drew. Drew will run well behind LeCharles Bentley and the new revamped offensive line for the Browns.

79. Atlanta- Gerris Wilkinson, ILB, Georiga Tech- This is a good pick for the Falcons. Wilkinson is very underrated and Keith Brooking is now 31 years old. Wilkinson will develop under Brooking before eventually taking over.

80. Dallas- Pat Watkins, FS, Florida State- Watkins fell a little because he is a very raw player that needs some teaching. Enter Bill Parcells. He’s going to learn under the best and be tamed by him, and it could possibly turn into something great for the Cowboys. Watkins also fills a need along side Roy Williams.

81. San Diego- Kevin Boothe, OG, Cornell- Boothe is a very overlooked player because he played at Cornell. However, he is a huge guard with decent feet that never missed a game in college. He should start off the bat with Justice, and this could make for a great offensive line as well as a great offense in general.

82. Miami- A.J. Nicholson, OLB, Florida State- They traded their 2nd round pick for Culpepper, so they take the best outside linebacker left on the board. Nicholson is very athletic but he dropped this far due to injury and a bad 40 time at the combine but his instincts are still great and warrant this pick.

83. Minnesota- Demario Winter, DB, Georgia- The Vikings continue to buff up this defense by going with Winter. He has decent size with great speed for a corner, and would’ve gone earlier but is kind of an underachiever and has had trouble off the field. Still, a good pick for the Vikings who could use some depth at CB.

84. San Francisco (from WASH)- Spencer Havner, OLB, UCLA- Havner is the best outside linebacker left, and with the losses of Julian Peterson and Andre Carter, a linebacker in the draft is a must. He is very big, good for a 3-4 system, and can really play any of the 3 linebacker positions.

85. Kansas City- Anthony Smith, S, Syracuse- Some people may think this is high, but I really like Smith and how he could fit in the Chiefs scheme. He doesn’t have a big frame, but he definitely hits like he does. He also covers well.

86. New England- Rob Sims, OG, Ohio State- While the Patriots don’t really need a Guard, they don’t really need anything. It never hurts to have a great backup and he may even find himself in the starting lineup. This is a great steal here for the Pats.

87. New York Giants- Stanley McClover, DE, Auburn- This pick is because no one knows how long Michael Strahan will be around. Despite a good forty time (4.61) and decent size, people still doubt him. I like this pick for the Giants.

88. Chicago- Devin Hester, DB, Miami- They are still very thin at cornerback even after drafting the convict Ricky Manning Jr., and Hester is a good cover guy that also plays as a returner, something that the Bears could really use.

89. Carolina- Andrew Whitworth, OT, Louisiana State- This is a great value pick for the Panthers as Whitworth drops a little bit, and they could really use a tackle opposite of Jordan Gross.

90. Tampa Bay- Mark Setterstrom, OG, Minnesota- Tampa Bay went O-Line earlier, and they keep revamping it for the Cadillac by getting Setterstrom. Some think he will go later, but he is good enough and fast enough to be a 3rd rounder that will play right away.

91. Cincinnati- Elvis Dumervil, DE, Louisville- Dumervil was very high on most people’s boards before he got hurt. Either way, he is a great athlete with great pass rushing skills. At just 5 foot 11, he may not be big enough, but his pure rushing ability may be enough.

92. Jacksonville- Will Blackmon, DB, Boston College- Jacksonville could’ve addressed their cornerback needs earlier but didn’t, so now they have to. Blackmon is an unbelievable athlete that can play special teams and even offense. He will help the Jaguars right away at some position.

93. Atlanta- Jerious Norwood, RB, Mississippi State- I am very high on Norwood, and I think he will go here. Warrick Dunn is getting older, and T.J. Duckett just doesn’t fit the zone blocking scheme. Norwood is small and very, very quick, something that is very good for the zone blocking scheme. He is actually being compared to Warrick Dunn, so the pick works.

94. Indianapolis- Jonathon Lewis, DT, Virginia Tech- He dropped this far due to his small height but is still very strong and can plug up holes nicely. The Colts don’t have too many needs, so they look for the best player available at a need, and they take Lewis, someone who could start right away.

95. Minnesota- Hank Baskett, WR, New Mexico- The Vikings drafted Troy Williamson which was a little bit of a reach, but after losing Nate Burleson, a WR is needed and Baskett is a solid pick here.

96. Pittsburgh- Greg Eslinger, C, Minnesota- For a long time, the Steelers have had one of the best offensive lines in the league, but as they become older, replacements will be needed, and Eslinger is a great start. He is very versatile and quick on his feet and should be a good player for the Steelers.

97. New York Jets- Orien Harris, DT, Miami- He dropped this far because people think that he takes plays off. This may be true, but the plays he doesn’t take off, he is a great, strong, powerful player that should fit the Jets scheme well.

Teams Picks

Arizona Cardinals
10. Arizona- Winston Justice, OT, Southern California
41. Arizona- Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College
72. Arizona- Terna Nande, OLB, Miami

The Cardinals are very young on offense, and with a better O-Line they could be a great offense. Kiwanuka and Nande could be 2 potential starters because of their athleticism and pure football playing ability. Justice should start right away, and the Cardinals should be happy with their picks, as they filled needs at DE and OT.

Atlanta Falcons
47. Atlanta- Ashton Youboty, DB, Ohio State
79. Atlanta- Gerris Wilkinson, ILB, Georiga Tech
93. Atlanta- Jerious Norwood, RB, Mississippi State

The Falcons have started to rebuild their defense with Deangelo Hall and the acquisition of John Abraham, and they continued building with their first 2 picks being defense. Youboty should compete to start right away, and Wilkinson is a pick that should get some time on special teams before he starts seeing time on defense.

Baltimore Ravens
13. Baltimore- Jimmy Williams, DB, Virginia Tech
44. Baltimore- Daniel Bullocks, DB, Nebraska

The Ravens had only 2 picks in the first 3 rounds, but they used them wisely. Both Williams and Bullocks will help the aging secondary, and they are also 2 players that they got for great value as Williams could have gone top 10. Williams may be worked in before getting a starting job, but Bullocks could start right away in place of Will Demps.

Buffalo Bills
8. Buffalo- Brodrick Bunkley, DT, Florida State
42. Buffalo- Jonathon Scott, OT, Texas
70. Buffalo (from TEN)- Danieal Manning, DB, Abilene Christian
73. Buffalo- Charlie Whitehurst, QB, Clemson

The Bills had one of the best drafts, filling a bunch of needs at DT, OT, as well as a potential starting QB. Bunkley will start right away and bolster a decent D-Line and make it better, while the young Danieal Manning could possibly be an outstanding player.


Carolina Panters
27. Carolina- Deangelo Williams, RB, Memphis
58. Carolina- Joe Klopfenstein, TE, Colorado
89. Carolina- Andrew Whitworth, OT, Louisiana State

The Panthers have to be happy with their draft. Deangelo Williams, who had great college stats fell to them, and they hope he can transition into the same player in the NFL. They also got a TE in Klopfenstein as well as Whitworth. All 3 players may start from week 1.

Chicago Bears
26. Chicago- Marcedes Lewis, TE, UCLA
57. Chicago- Demetrius Williams, WR, Oregon
88. Chicago- Devin Hester, DB, Miami

The Bears had one of the best defenses in the league, but one of the worst offenses and special teams. In the draft, they filled both of those needs nicely. Lewis and Williams should be big impacts right away, and Hester is a specimen and should be a returner all year.

Cincinnati Bengals
24. Cincinnati- Antonio Cromartie, DB, Florida State
55. Cincinnati- Dominique Byrd, TE, USC
91. Cincinnati- Elvis Dumervil, DE, Louisville

The Bengals got a great value pick in Cromartie as well as a couple need picks in Byrd and Dumervil. Cromartie may take a year or 2 to get settled in, but Byrd will be an effective starter and Dumervil should see some 3rd downs.

Cleveland Browns
12. Cleveland- Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
43. Cleveland- Jonathon Joseph- DB, South Carolina
78. Cleveland- Maurice Drew, RB, UCLA

The Browns had a very solid draft, as they drafted towards their needs rather than best players available. Ngata easily could have been a top 8 pick, and Jonathon Joseph could have been a first rounder. Drew may have been a little high, but I feel like he was the best running back left on the board, and the Browns will compliment Reuben Droughns with him.

Dallas Cowboys
18. Dallas- Manny Lawson, DE, North Carolina St.
49. Dallas- Sinorice Moss, WR, Miami
80. Dallas- Pat Watkins, FS, Florida State

The Cowboys had a very solid draft, and drafted a bunch of big name guys with a lot of upside. Lawson should help the 3-4 defense, and Moss should make the WR corps better and take a little but of pressure off T.O. Watkins is a toss up, but should be an OK player in the NFL.

Denver Broncos
15. Denver (via ATL)- Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio State
37. Denver- Leonard Pope, TE, Georgia
61. Denver- Darryl Tapp, DE, Virginia Tech
68. Denver- Daryn Colledge, OT, Boise State

With 4 picks in the first 3 rounds, the Broncos were able to get 4 very talented players. They helped an old receiving corps with Holmes and Pope, and also got a very versatile player in Colledge, who can play tackle or center. Tapp was a good value pick who should see some time right away.

Detroit Lions
9. Detroit- Michael Huff, DB, Texas
40. Detroit- Taitusi Lutui, OG, USC
74. Detroit- Ryan O’Callaghan, OT, California

The Lions got 3 very good players that should impact their team right away. Michael Huff could be the best player right away out of college and will definitely help the Lions right away. The Lions also focused on their again O-Line by going with Lutui and O’Callaghan. These 2 may be projects, but will find their way into the starting lineup sooner than later.

Green Bay Packers
5. Green Bay- A.J. Hawk, OLB, Ohio State
36. Green Bay- Charles Spencer, OG, Pittsburgh
67. Green Bay- Martin Nance, WR, Florida

The Packers got 3 very good players, and also filled arguably their top 3 needs. With Charles Woodson singing, there was no need for a cornerback, so they went with an OLB and OG in the first 2 rounds. Hawk will obviously start and Spencer should compete. Nance is a big receiver which the Packers like, and may start if Javon Walker is traded.

Houston Texans
1. Houston- Reggie Bush, RB, Southern California
33. Houston- Eric Winston, OT, Miami
65. Houston- Jason Spitz, OG, Louisville
66. Houston (from New Orleans)- Parys Haralson, DE, Tennessee

It could be argued the Texans had the best draft, simply because they got Reggie Bush. However, they also revamped their O-Line with Winston and Spitz, 2 players that will help in the long run for the Texans. Haralson should see some time, and was a good value pick for the Texans, who have to be happy with their draft.


Indianapolis Colts
30. Indianapolis- Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota
62. Indianapolis- Gerris Wilkinson, ILB, Georgia Tech
94. Indianapolis- Jonathon Lewis, DT, Virginia Tech

The only place where the Colts got worse on offense was RB, and they addressed that need right away with Maroney. After they got Maroney, they went defense and got 2 young and athletic players in Wilkinson and Lewis, both who should compete for the starting job, with Lewis probably ending up starting.

Jacksonville Jaguars
28. Jacksonville- Thomas Howard, OLB, UTEP
60. Jacksonville- Davin Joseph, OG, Oklahoma
92. Jacksonville- Will Blackmon, DB, Boston College

The Jaguars addressed their biggest need at OLB, and then got a great value pick with Joseph in the second. Both should start right away and Blackmon could easily be the new return man in Jacksonville. Howard, with great speed, could easily be one of the best OLB’s to come out of this deep class.

Kansas City Chiefs
20. Kansas City- Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State
54. Kansas City- Brodie Coyle, QB, Alabama
85. Kansas City- Anthony Smith, S, Syracuse

The Chiefs got a very good value pick with Tamba Hali, someone whose stock has been soaring, and they also probably got their QB of the future. Broyle is just like Trent Green. He has a smart head along with a gun for an arm. His stock did fall a little bit because he is injury prone. Anthony Smith is also a good value pick that helps an aging defensive secondary.

Miami Dolphins
16. Miami- Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
82. Miami- A.J. Nicholson, OLB, Florida State

The Dolphins stayed with the hometown boys, drafting 2 players out of Florida, and they have to be happy about it. Chad Jackson is arguably the best WR in the draft class, and A.J. Nicholson could easily move inside and play ILB if he needs to take over for Zach Thomas.

Minnesota Vikings
17. Minnesota- Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
48. Minnesota- Demeco Ryans, OLB, Alabama
51. Minnesota- Ko Simpson, DB, South Carolina
83. Minnesota- Demario Winter, DB, Georgia
95. Minnesota- Hank Baskett, WR, New Mexico

With 5 picks in the first 3 rounds, the Vikings addressed all needs and also got great value players with lots of upside. They got their QB of the future in Cutler who could be an all star, and got good depth with Simpson and Winter, and also replaced Burleson by getting Baskett. Not to mention Demeco Ryans, a first round potential player.

New England Patriots
21. New England- Bobby Carpenter, OLB, Ohio State
52. New England- Joseph Addai, RB, Louisiana State
75. New England (from BAL)- Kelly Jennings, DB, Miami
86. New England- Rob Sims, OG, Ohio State

The Patritos filled a few needs, as well as potential starters in this year’s draft. Bobby Carpenter will either start this year or be a starter in the first few years of his NFL career. Kelly Jennings is a great value pick as well as Joseph Addai, and both are good picks for the Patriots. Rob Sims has great upside and is a good backup for now.

New Orleans Saints
2. New Orleans- D’Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
34. New Orleans- D’Qwell Jackson, ILB, Maryland

The Saints got what could have been the number 1 pick in the draft in D’Brickashaw Ferguson and also got a 1st round potential player in D’Qwell Jackson. Whether they wanted guys that names start with D’, or they just like getting the best players available, the Saints had a great draft in which they improved their offense and defense.

New York Giants
25. New York Giants- Jason Allen, DB, Tennessee
56. New York Giants- Rodrique Wright, DT, Texas
87. New York Giants- Stanley McClover, DE, Auburn

Last year, the Giants offense was very productive, but their defense really hurt them in the long run. Getting Lavar Arrington got rid of the need for Demeco Ryans or any OLB, and so they took the next best player that could help them in Jason Allen. Rod Wright was a good value pick and McClover should start when Strahan hangs them up.

New York Jets
4. New York Jets- Mario Williams, DE, North Carolina St.
29. New York Jets (via DEN)- Lendale White, RB, Southern California
35. New York Jets- Nick Mangold, C, Ohio State
71. New York Jets- Jason Avant, WR, Michigan
97. New York Jets- Orien Harris, DT, Miami

The Jets offense is getting older and not getting any better, so the Jets addressed that in the draft. They got Lendale White and Nick Mangold, 2 players that should start right away. Also, they got 2 great players in Super Mario and Orien Harris to help their D-Line.

Oakland Raiders
7. Oakland- Vince Young, QB, Texas
38. Oakland- Darnell Bing, DB, Southern California
69. Oakland- John McCargo, DT, North Carolina St.

The Raiders probably drafted the most players with a ton of upside but also a lot to prove in Vince Young and John McCargo. Vince has a lot of doubters, but he has the flashiness and spunk that Al Davis likes in his players…see Randy Moss. Also, McCargo played alongside Mario Williams and Manny Lawson, so it will be interesting to see if he can play by himself like I think he can. Bing is a solid player for their secondary.

Philadelphia Eagles
14. Philadelphia- Ernie Sims, OLB, Florida State
45. Philadelphia- Gabe Watson, DT, Michigan
76. Philadelphia Eagles- Greg Jennings, WR, Western Michigan

The Eagles have lost a lot of great players in the last few years, and they have gone from a super bowl contender, to almost a top 10 pick. Partial credit can be given to T.O., but also some is due to lack of talent. Ernie Sims is a physical specimen as well a speedy player. Gabe Watson has the tag of taking plays off, but I believe he will do fine in the NFL. Also, Greg Jennings was a good value pick to help the young WR corps.

Pittsburgh Steelers
32. Pittsburgh- Donte Whitner, DB, Ohio State
64. Pittsburgh- Derek Hagan, WR, Arizona State
96. Pittsburgh- Greg Eslinger, C, Minnesota

The Steelers were somewhat hurt in free agency this year, but in the draft they were able to get it right back. Donte Whitner could have been a mid-first round pick, but he fell to the Steelers and they were happy to take him. Also, Derek Hagan will replace Antwaan Randle El and Greg Eslinger is a future starter that is a lock to succeed in the NFL.

San Diego Chargers
19. San Diego- Marcus McNeil, OT, Auburn
50. San Diego- Richard Marshall, DB, Fresno State
81. San Diego- Kevin Boothe, OG, Cornell

The Chargers really did a nice job addressing their needs in the draft by getting a solid tackle and a quick guard. McNeil should start right away and Boothe, who was a great value pick could compete in the pre season.


San Francisco 49ers
6. San Francisco- Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
22. San Francisco- Kamerion Wimbley, OLB, Florida State
84. San Francisco (from WASH)- Spencer Havner, OLB, UCLA

San Francisco traded up in the first round to get a good replacement for Andre Carter. Vernon Davis should give Alex Smith a great target for years to come, and Wimbley will be a great 3-4 linebacker. Spencer Havner has a lot of potential, and will be a good special teams player right away.

Seattle Seahawks
31. Seattle- Max Jean-Gilles, OG, Georgia
63. Seattle- Cedric Griffin, DB, Texas

The Seahawks got Nate Burleson for their 3rd round pick, but they still managed to get 2 great players out of the draft. Some say Jean-Gilles is too big and slow, but he is very powerful and is probably the best OG in the draft class. He will be a great replacement for Hutchison, and Cedric Griffin is another young DB for them.

St. Louis Rams
11. St. Louis- Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa
46. St. Louis- Claude Wroten, DT, Louisiana State
77. St. Louis- Anthony Fasano, TE, Notre Dame

The Rams had a tough decision to make on whether or not to pass on Ngata, but they took Greenway anyways. They ended up lucking out by getting Claude Wroten in the second and Fasano in the 3rd. The Rams got good players that they lost in free agency, and overall drafted 2 potential 1st rounders.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
23. Tampa Bay- Tye Hill, DB, Clemson
59. Tampa Bay- Jon Alston, OLB, Stanford
90. Tampa Bay- Mark Setterstrom, OG, Minnesota

The Bucs got some great value picks, as well as picks that will help them greatly in the future. Tye Hill was a great value pick for number 23, and Jon Alston and Mark Setterstrom could compete for starting jobs this summer. Tye Hill could very easily be one of the best defensive players of this draft class in a few years as shown at his combine.

Tennessee Titans
3. Tennessee- Matt Leinart, QB, Southern California
39. Tennessee- Abdul Hodge, ILB, Iowa

The Titans only had 2 picks in the first 3 rounds, but they made the most of both of them. They picked Matt Leinart, one of the most successful college QB’s we’ve seen in a while as a replacement for Steve McNair, and also got a replacement for Keith Bullock in Abdul Hodge. Both are great players that should help the Titans for years to come.

Washington Redskins
53. Washington- Roger McIntosh, OLB, Miami

The Redskins had but just one pick in the 1st 3 rounds, but they took the right player by taking Roger “Rocky” McIntosh. By losing Antonio Pierce and Lavar Arrington in 2 years, they are really low in depth at OLB, and McIntosh is a great athlete that may start right away, or at least be a decent backup with special teams ability.

Excellent explanations but the Chargers are really focused in on Cromartie right now and with Mcneil having a new injury concern I'd bet on him falling to the early second round. One of the better mocks with the smaller schools I've seen. Most mocks leave them out.

Beautiful Vikes picks. At least the first 3. The one position you don't have us filling is OG. We need one more guy, and I think we'll get him on the first day.

solid first and third round.... Second round is off and especially your explanation

Quote:
43. Cleveland- Jonathon Joseph- DB, South Carolina- Like most corners in this year’s draft, he is very raw with a lot of talent. He has blazing speed with decent size for a cornerback. The Browns need an upgrade there, and with most of the decent linebackers gone at this point, they look to Joseph for an upgrade at cornerback.


We don't really need an upgrade there was we have 3 starters competing for 2 spots and more than adequate depth. And you say most decent line backers gone? Well I got news for you, DeMeco Ryans is a better than average linebacker and he is left and would fill our need at ILB.

First, if Jospeh is available in the 2nd, the Panthers will SNATCH him up. I remember hearing the Panthers were considering taking Joseph at 27, so if they can get him at 58 they will definately take him.

Second, we have the Bears 3rd rd pick as compensation for them signing Manning. However, you can keep the pick because that's who the Panthers probably would take since we have a SERIOUS need for a KR and we can also develop Hester as a dime back and maybe a nickel back in the future.

Overall, good draft and Klopfenstein is nice, but Joseph would definately be picked over him since the Panthers are in dire need of depth on the O-Line (no solid depth behind OT and RG).

26. Chicago- Marcedes Lewis, TE, UCLA- He dropped a little bit because of his 40 time (4.82) but the Bears are in need of a big pass-catching tight end. There is no way that they can pass on Marcedes after he dropped this far. He should be used right away and be a nice target for Rex Grossman and his young offensive group.

57. Chicago- Demetrius Williams, WR, Oregon- The Bears continue to add to their young wide receiving corps, and with the addition of Lewis in the first round, they would be wise to add a wide out like Williams.

88. Chicago- Devin Hester, DB, Miami- They are still very thin at cornerback even after drafting the convict Ricky Manning Jr., and Hester is a good cover guy that also plays as a returner, something that the Bears could really use.
1. Great pick
2. I love Williams (see the sig), but we are in no need of an early-round WR. Alston, Griffin, Jennings, Manning are all better options
3. Don't have this pick; lost it in acquiring Ricky Manning

Not bad kid... Wink

Demeco Ryans is a much better pick for the Browns in the second round. The other two picks are acceptable.

Did you not read what I said last time about these same picks?
Quote:
47. Atlanta- Ashton Youboty, DB, Ohio State- Another pick that could’ve gone in the first round slips to the second, and the Falcons take a cornerback with their first pick to offset Deangelo Hall. Ohio State produces great cornerbacks, and this should be no exception.
Youboty will be good in a Tampa 2. but he doesn't fit Atlanta' scheme. Atlanta would get Ko Simpson here.
Quote:
79. Atlanta- Gerris Wilkinson, ILB, Georiga Tech- This is a good pick for the Falcons. Wilkinson is very underrated and Keith Brooking is now 31 years old. Wilkinson will develop under Brooking before eventually taking over.

HORRIBLE PICK! I have 3 reasons why:
1) Atlanta has zero need for a linebacker.
2) Wilkinson would play MLB which we have Hartwell and Beck at
3) Brooking's future replacement is Demorrio Williams.\
Atlanta's current LB depth chart:
WLB - Brooking/Williams
MLB - Hartwell/BEck
SLB - Boley/Reese
please do some research or actually look at my comments htis time.
Quote:
93. Atlanta- Jerious Norwood, RB, Mississippi State- I am very high on Norwood, and I think he will go here. Warrick Dunn is getting older, and T.J. Duckett just doesn’t fit the zone blocking scheme. Norwood is small and very, very quick, something that is very good for the zone blocking scheme. He is actually being compared to Warrick Dunn, so the pick works.

though I don't personally like Norwood. Atlanta likes him... so good pick.
Quote:
The Falcons have started to rebuild their defense with Deangelo Hall and the acquisition of John Abraham, and they continued building with their first 2 picks being defense. Youboty should compete to start right away, and Wilkinson is a pick that should get some time on special teams before he starts seeing time on defense.

Youboty wouldn't be able to start because of his knack for allowing theb ig play. the biggest thing the Falcons defense is against. Wilkeinson would be sitting on the bench for at least 3 years before he even saw reserve action. Atlanta has zero need for a linebacker. Actually take my comments on your horrible mock for Atlanta and use them this time.

Solid Jets draft. However, I think they'd take Maroney over Lendale if they went with a RB, the new staff is all about "character" guys and White does not fit that mold.

Good Vikings mock, but with the last pick we would take a Guard instead of a wide receiver. Receiver is not really a need because we still have Koren Robinson, WIlliamson, Taylor and Marcus Robinson. However we are looking for a guard, so Eslinger would probably be the pick there, and convert him to guard. Also, it is Demario Minter, not Winter. But other than that very good Viking mock

Youboty is a steal there, and he fits fine into ATL's system, he just isn't the same as Deangelo Hall.....to say he won't start because he gives up the big play is dumb because he is going to have a whole mini-camp and preseason to work on it

Youboty is not nearly as good of a player as Ko Simpson is. youboty wouldn't ift in Atlanta because he has stiff hips. that is a huge thing that McKay looks for in CB's for Donatell's scheme to strike players off the board from. Youboty doesnt fit in with Atlanta's schemes or style of CB. Atlanta like smaller CB's. the tallest of the top 5 CB's is Hall at 5'10" the others i nthe top 5 are Jason Webster (5'9") Kevin Mathis (5'8") Chris Cash (5'10") Allen Rossum (5'8") Atlanta likes extremely fast CB's as well. Youboty has only average speed at best. Also you forgot to attempt to defend the horrible pick of the Linebacker. but youboty will not be picked by the Falcons. I guaruntee it. especially if ko Simpson is on the board. please quit acting like you know about teams systems if you don't. Ed donatell doesn't run the basic DB schemes in Atlanta. Jim Mora does.

btw... Oshinowo is the better pick at 79.
