[b]1.) Oakland Raiders: QB JaMarcus Russell (LSU)[/b]
Russell is an Al Davis type of quarterback. He has a rocket arm and pretty good mobility. He will give the Raiders a quarterback that can air it out for the recieversto run under. He is bigger than a lot of defensive ends and plays with a tough mentality. Look for this pick to be announced very quickly once Draft Day begins.

[b]2.) Detroit Lions: QB Brady Quinn (Notre Dame)[/b]
Quinn may be the most pro-ready quarterback to come out of college since Peyton Manning. He can make all the throws and has natural leadership that the Lions are lacking. He is very capable of stepping into Detroit and being the staple of this team. Quinn will not be the Joey Harrington the Lions drafted years ago.

[b]3.) Cleveland Browns: OT Joe Thomas (Wisconsin)[/b]
It's been assumed that Cleveland will go Peterson here, but it's becoming more apparent that they're eyeing Thomas. He would have been a top 15 pick last year, but he improved and progressed a lot this year and is now one of the best players in the draft. Thomas is very strong and athletic and will help protect Frye.

[b]4.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: WR Calvin Johnson (Georgia Tech)[/b]
There will probably be a few teams trying to trade up at this point to get this player. But Tampa will take him because whoever the quarterback is, they'll need someone to throw to because Galloway isn't getting younger and Clayton has yet to step up. Johnson is the most talented player in the draft with the ability of Randy Moss and the attitude of Marvin Harrison.

[b]5.) Arizona Cardinals: DE Jamaal Anderson (Arkansas)[/b]
The Cardinals are praying that Thomas will fall to them, but at this point, that looks highly unlikely. Arizona might trade down here since there are no more top rated offensive lineman, but if they do stick with this pick, they'll probably go defensive lineman or safety. I think they go Anderson here because Okeafor is nothing special and Berry is always injured.

[b]6.) Washington Redskins: DE Gaines Adams (Clemson)[/b]
The Redskins will be jumping with glee that Adams is still on the board. Adams is the best defensive player in the draft and is drawing comparisons to Jason Taylor. He compliments great athleticism with a high motor. Adams will add a much needed presence on the defensive line.

[b]7.) Minnesota Vikings: WR Dwayne Jarrett (USC)[/b]
With Branch still on the board, the Vikings could go in that direction, but their defensive line wasn't bad last year. What was horrible was their receiving core. Jarrett isn't the fastest guy, but he catches anything in the vicinity. Whoever the quarterback is, Jarrett will step in right away and contribute.

[b]8.) Houston Texans: RB Adrian Peterson (Oklahoma)[/b]
Some might be surprised of Peterson falling this far, but it looks likely at this point. After passing on the talent of Reggie Bush last year, the Texans won't make the same mistake this year. Peterson runs with an attitude and great vision. He can cut on a dime and gets north in a hurry. He is a talent Houston cannot afford to lose.

[b]9.) Miami Dolphins: CB Leon Hall (Michigan)[/b]
Even though Miami has one of the best front seven in the NFL, their secondary could use some help. Hall would be a great corner to assist them. Look for him to be very physical and give the pass rush even more time to get to the quarterback. He has a knack for making plays and will make quite a few at the next level.

[b]10.) Atlanta Falcons: DT Alan Branch (Michigan)[/b]
The Falcons are too talented to be picking this low. While many will blame Vick for the teams collapse, much of the blame has to go squarely on the defense. Kerney will be a free agent and Abraham is never healthy, so another defensive lineman could definitely be used. Branch is an all around great player and should do very well at the next level.

[b]11.) San Francisco 49ers: WR Ted Ginn Jr. (Ohio State)[/b]
One area that needs to be addressed for the 49ers is wide receiver, where they lack a legit #1. Antonio Bryant was solid in his first year, but now he is on thin ice following a suspension. Ginn is a big play just waiting to happen with rare speed. He will add a new dimension to the 49ers offense and give Alex Smith a fantastic weapon to utilize.

[b]12.) Buffalo Bills: DT Amobi Okoye (Louisville)[/b]
Okoye is coming off a fantastic senior campaign and is soaring up the draft boards. I think he will land right here to the Bills and he will be a great addition to the Bills defensive line. Okoye and his potential are just too enticing for the Bills not to pick him here.

[b]13.) St. Louis Rams: LB Lawrence Timmons (Florida State)[/b]
Once again, the Rams defense was horrible in 2006, especially against the run, so they'll probably be looking to add someone to the front seven with this pick. Timmons has been overshadowed by guys like Ernie Sims and Buster Davis, but when he finally got to start, he was phenomenal.

[b]14.) Carolina Panthers: S LaRon Landry (LSU)[/b]
Their main weakness is probably linebacker, but I think Willis here is a reach. However, safety is also a concern for Carolina, so they take this opportunity to add the top rated player at that position in Landry. A true playmaker in the deep patrol, Landry is great against the run and pass.

[b]15.) Pittsburgh Steelers: CB Darrelle Revis (Pittsburgh)[/b]
It's not easy to find a real problem on the Steelers depth chart, despite their record this year. Revis is physical, a great athlete, and has very good speed which should all add up to him being among the first handful of defensive backs chosen. I'm sure the Steelers would gladly take him to boost that already great defense of theirs.

[b]16.) Green Bay Packers: RB Marshawn Lynch (California)[/b]
On most mocks, this is probably one of the picks that shows up the most. Lynch has very good size, is a big play threat, and some feel he might be equal or even perhaps superior to Adrian Peterson as a prospect. Green isn't very consistent, even though he had a decent year this year, and he'll probably be traded or released. This could be the steal of the draft.

[b]17.) Jacksonville Jaguars: S Reggie Nelson (Florida)[/b]
The biggest need for the Jaguars right now is quarterback, but there is no one remotely worth picking here. So, they'll address another weakness at safety, where Grant will become a free agent and Darius has had some injury issues in recent years. Some feel he could move to corner at the next level, but he'd be a perfect fit at safety for the Jags.

[b]18.) Cincinnati Bengals: DT Demarcus Tyler (North Carolina)[/b]
There's no doubt that the Bengals biggest need is defensive line. Tyler can be the guy the Bengals need to stuff up the middle. No one boosted their stock in the draft for than Tyler this year, and he'd be a perfect fit and big upgrade over John Thornton at defensive tackle.

[b]19.) Tennessee Titans: DE Adam Carriker (Nebraska)[/b]
One of the Titans most pressing concerns is at cornerback but they really don't have anyone at defensive end opposite Kyle Vanden Bosch either so that is the direction they go here. Carriker is versatile enough to play in a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme. Defensive end is where value and end meet for the Titans though so with that in mind Carriker is the selection.

[b]20.) New York Giants: CB Daymeion Hughes (California)[/b]
The G-Men finished 28th last year in pass defense, so secondary is a big need for them. Even though some feel that he is an overrated coverman because of his high interception totals, I believe that he is a very talented coverman. Depending on his workouts at the combine, he could drop out of the first round.

[b]21.) Denver Broncos: DE Quentin Moses (Georgia)[/b]
Coming off the 2005 season, Moses was regarded as maybe the best player in college, regardless of position. But, after a terrible 2006 season where he wasn't even the best DE on his team, his stock is falling unless he has a great workout at the combine. At this point in the draft, Moses might just be worth a roll of the Draft Day dice.

[b]22.) Dallas Cowboys: OG Justin Blalock (Texas)[/b]
The Cowboys have two needs in offensive line and safety, but with Nelson and Landry off the board, this pick is relatively easy. Marco Rivera is just about finished due to back injury and this is probably not a popular pick among Cowboys fans, the Cowboys will need a replacement, and I see Blalock as their man.

[b]23.) Kansas City Chiefs: OT Levi Brown (Penn State)[/b]
Brown could be off the board by this pick, but if he is still available, the Chiefs would be wise to jump on him because it could be their last chance to add an immediate contributer outside. Even though Brown is a mountain of a man, he is also a pretty good athlete and had a ton of starting experience in the Big Ten.

[b]24.) New England Patriots (from SEA): CB Marcus McCauley (Fresno State)[/b]
Every year it seems that the Patriots will take a cornerback in round one, but it never happens. With two first round picks this year, this is the year they take that first round cornerback. McCauley really is the total package physically and an even better prospect than his former teammate Richard Marshall was a year ago.

[b]25.) New York Jets: DE Jarvis Moss (Florida)[/b]
Even though they made the playoffs this year, their rebuilding still isn't finished, and that rebuilding will continue with Moss. He helped the Gators win the National Championship this year and made some very good Ohio State blockers look very silly. If drafted by the Jets, he could move to linebacker because of his athleticism.

[b]26.) Philadelphia Eagles: S Michael Griffin (Texas)[/b]
Even though the Eagles don't have any glaring needs at one position, one position that does stand out is safety where Michael Lewis will probably be lost to free agency. Griffin is a terrific all-around defensive back who excels against both the run and pass while also providing tremendous value on special teams as well.

[b]27.) New Orleans Saints: LB Paul Posluszny (Penn State)[/b]
It's a little known fact that the Saints were ready to take A.J. Hawk last year with their #2 pick when Reggie Bush magically fell into their laps. while some may consider Pusluszny a reach here I think this makes perfect sense. Posluszny is real productive, has great instincts, and his intangibles are off the charts.

[b]28.) New England Patriots: WR Dwyane Bowe (LSU)[/b]
Even though they've gotten some good production out of Caldwell and Gaffney, it's probably time to get a top pass catcher for Tom Brady. A big, physical receiver like Bowe would provide an excellent compliment to the type of guys that they currently have on the roster and I am sure Brady would be very pleased if the team gave him another weapon to throw to.

[b]29.) Baltimore Ravens: OG Ben Grubbs (Auburn)[/b]
There might not be a more talented team in the league than Baltimore, so they could be the only team that has the excuse to get the best player available. Grubbs is a terrific athlete who played defensive tackle and tight end early in his career. If Adalius Thomas leaves, then the Ravens could go with a linebacker here, but offensive line looks like a nice option.

[b]30.) San Diego Chargers: WR Sidney Rice (South Carolina)[/b]
Even though Vincent Jackson showed some emergence this year, Keenan McCardell is showing signs of age and Eric Parker is just average. So, wide receiver is a spot the Chargers could use. Rice isn't a sure thing but at this point the potential rewards outweigh the risks. This could be a perfect situation because he could sit a year or two before starting.

[b]31.) Indianapolis Colts: LB Patrick Willis (Ole Miss)[/b]
As good as the Colts are, their run defense just plain out sucks. Plus, Cato June is going to become a free agent this year and it isn't a sure thing they'll sign him back. Willis is an excellent athlete and one of the most productive linebackers you will ever find and he is versatile enough to project either inside or outside as a pro.

[b]32.) Chicago Bears: OT Arron Sears (Tennessee)[/b]
Even though their offensive line was solid again in 2006 they have some guys like Reuben Brown and Fred Miller who are getting up their in years and it's time to bring in their eventual replacements, especially for Brown who is set to become a free agent and may even retire. Sears is a very versatile project, having played everywhere on the offensive line.

[b]33.) Oakland Raiders: OT Tony Ugoh (Arkansas)[/b]
Their offensive line is a complete and total mess so this pick will begin the rebuilding process.

[b]34.) Detroit Lions: DE Charles Johnson (Georgia)[/b]
Cory Redding was moved to tackle with great success so they'll need to replace him outside.

[b]35.) Cleveland Browns: C Ryan Kalil (USC)[/b]
LeCharles Bentley is coming back from injury but he can easily move to guard to make room.

[b]36.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: DT Quinn Pitcock (Ohio State)[/b]
After seeing Warren Sapp and Booger McFarland leave in recent years they need help inside.

[b]37.) Arizona Cardinals: OT Joe Staley (Central Michigan)[/b]
It looks like Leonard Davis will be leaving as a free agent so o-line is even more of a concern.

[b]38.) New York Jets (from WAS): RB Kenny Irons (Auburn)[/b]
Curtis Martin's career is over and while he did a solid job Leon Washington's not a workhorse.

[b]39.) Minnesota Vikings: WR Robert Meachem (Tennessee)[/b]
A potential first round talent who addresses what is without question their most glaring need.

[b]40.) Houston Texans: WR Anthony Gonzalez (Ohio State)[/b]
Eric Moulds is getting older and there is not much depth so this guy is their future #2 wideout.

[b]41.) Miami Dolphins: OT Ryan Harris (Notre Dame)[/b]
hey need o-line help and this guy has all the physical tools and a ton of starting experience.

[b]42.) Atlanta Falcons: OG Marshal Yanda (Iowa)[/b]
Prospect with limited experience whose stock is soaring and could play either guard or tackle.

[b]43.) San Francisco 49ers: CB Aaron Ross (Texas)[/b]
Walt Harris was a lot better than anyone could have expected but some depth is still needed

[b]44.) Buffalo Bills: TE Zach Miller (Arizona State)[/b]
Will help aid in the development of J.P. Losman and provide another threat in the pass game.

[b]45.) St. Louis Rams: DE LaMarr Woodley (Michigan)[/b]
Leonard Little's still one of the best in the business but they will need someone opposite him.

[b]46.) Carolina Panthers: LB Buster Davis (Florida State)[/b]
Dan Morgan can't be counted on and this franchise had success with another short linebacker.

[b]47.) Green Bay Packers: TE Greg Olsen (Miami(FL))[/b]
Bubba Franks is just not getting it done anymore and this guy can be a real weapon for Favre.

[b]48.) Pittsburgh Steelers: DE Anthony Spencer (Purdue)[/b]
Joey Porter and Clark Haggans will be free agents soon so it is time to start planning ahead.

[b]49.) Jacksonville Jaguars: QB Troy Smith (Ohio State)[/b]
Byron Leftwich is most likely gone and neither David Garrard or Quinn Gray are the answers.

[b]50.) Cincinnati Bengals: S Brandon Meriweather (Miami(FL))[/b]
They've never been afraid of bad character guys before and he can help at safety and corner.

[b]51.) Tennessee Titans: CB Chris Houston (Arkansas)[/b]
Cornerback is a big need here and this guy is a developing talent to team with Pacman Jones.

[b]52.) New York Giants: FB Brian Leonard (Rutgers)[/b]
Insurance for and a compliment to Jacobs who will also help to replace Tiki as a pass catcher.

[b]53.) Denver Broncos: CB Josh Wilson (Maryland)[/b]
Will help replace Darrent Williams not only in the secondary but as a top return man as well.

[b]54.) Dallas Cowboys: S Eric Weddle (Utah)[/b]
Anthony Henry may move to safety but if not this addresses what has been a big weakness.

[b]55.) Kansas City Chiefs: WR Craig Davis (LSU)[/b]
They need to add a playmaker at wideout and this guy is a tremendous value late in Round 2.

[b]56.) Seattle Seahawks: OG Josh Beekman (Boston College)[/b]
They really miss Steve Hutchinson and Chris Gray and Pork Chop Womack are less than stellar.

[b]57.) New York Jets: DE Ikiaka Alama-Francis (Hawaii)[/b]
Extremely intriguing prospect to develop as the long-term replacement for Kimo von Oelhoffen.

[b]58.) New Orleans Saints: K Mason Crosby (Colorado)[/b]
John Carney is no spring chicken and this guy is a terrific weapon on field goals and kickoffs.

[b]59.) Philadelphia Eagles: QB Drew Stanton (Michigan State)[/b]
Donovan McNabb just cannot seem to stay healthy and Jeff Garcia may leave as a free agent.

[b]60.) New England Patriots: LB David Harris (Michigan)[/b]
Tedy Bruschi is slowing down while Mike Vrabel is a better fit outside and there is little depth.

[b]61.) Baltimore Ravens: RB Michael Bush (Louisville)[/b]
There is a very good chance Jamal Lewis won't be back next year so they need a new runner.

[b]62.) San Diego Chargers: LB Ray McDonald (Florida)[/b]
They had some injury problems along the defensive line in '06 so it's time to bolster the depth.

[b]63.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from IND): DE Victor Abiamiri (Notre Dame)[/b]
Simeon Rice is gone, Dwayne White is a free agent and Gruden will coach this guy in Mobile.

[b]64.) Chicago Bears: LB Jon Beason (Miami(FL))[/b]
Some insurance in case Lance Briggs leave as a free agent and quality depth if he does not.

O my gosh. that is a great vikings draft. A+. jarrett and meachem is something i dream about. all that could be better is CJ in the first, but it is still great. about branch. although you were right that D-line isnt a need, Branch has no chance of being drafted. the vikings have the best tandem of DTs in the NFL. DE is weaker, but not a need still.

and nice call on thomas to the browns. ive been preaching that for a while

You have us getting Alan Branch, but your analysis is of us taking Anderson. Good pick though.

Dont know anything about our 2nd rounder.

I quickly noticed something was fishy as well. Give credit where credit is due my boy and dont post mock drafts from other sites as your own.

I am not a big fan of the browns draft. Joe Thomas is a great talent but we currently have a lot money invested into LT Kevin Shaffer and C LeCharles Bentley ($35 million and $36 million, respectively). If we get a decent free agent guard (about $28 million), Joe Thomas makes the O-line cost too much. A more likely scenario is for them to draft RB Adrian Peterson in the 1st and OT Joe Staley in the 2nd.

The Browns will not draft a center in round 2. They NEED guards. We will most likely resign C Hank Fraley (pretty good replacement in place of Bentley) and make him the starter. We have a decent backup in Lennie Friedman who can start for a game or two if needed. Our starting guards are old and while we will probably address the need in free agency, the depth is not very good (Rd 3 is my guess). If we had a pair of decent guards, a lot of problems would be made better.

1) Most everyone's choice
33) Raiders are already too young at OL. Would rather have Meachem, Johnson, or one of the TE's here.

Good Vikings 1st rounder, but why would we ever consider Branch when both of our DTs are going to the pro bowl this year?
Good 2nd, but I can't see Brad Childress taking 2 WRs. Zach Miller or Aaron Ross might be more likely pick for us in the 2nd.

I also noticed you copied a lot from NFL Draft Countdown
