  • Scar's 3 round mock draft (12-20-2007)

    aka payback time for me ripping on your mock

    Round 1
    1) Miami
    James Laurenitis
    Inside Linebacker
    Ohio State University

    reasoning: At #1 overall a team is supposed to take the BPA at somewhat of a need spot. With Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams both coming back, I don't view RB as a need spot at all. I do however view DL and ILB as such and I take a surprise guy because I think he will be a dominating force at ILB in a 3-4 next to Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor, James Laurenitis from the Ohio State University
    2) St. Louis
    Chris Long
    Defensive End
    University of Virginia

    reasoning: With Stephen Jackson on the team, Darren McFadden makes no sense. But because of the need at DE, and a possible switch to the 3-4, they select Chris Long here.
    3) New York Jets
    Darren McFadden
    Running Back
    University of Arkansas

    reasoning: Yes, they do have Thomas Jones and Leon Washington, but Darren McFadden would be too much to pass up here and would allow them to possibly trade Jones for a pick or use a platoon of Jones and D-Mac.
    4) Atlanta
    Glenn Dorsey
    Nose Tackle
    Louisiana State University

    reasoning: A hard decision here, even for an Atlanta fan. With McFadden gone, the choice is between Jake Long and Glenn Dorsey. I go with Dorsey here however because he would be a great fit for a 4-3 NT and will be the dominating force we need inside next to Coleman and Abraham, as well as the deep OT class this year.
    5) New England (from San Francisco)
    Kenny Phillips
    Safety
    University of Miami, Florida

    reasoning: What do we give them? What exactly do they "need"? I just go BPA here and give them Kenny Phillips to play behind/eventually replace Rodney Harrison in that secondary
    6) Baltimore
    Matt Ryan
    Quarterback
    Boston College

    reasoning: Although, I don't view any QB as worthy of a top 5 pick, I think some team in the top 10 will fall in love with Ryan. Baltimore is the team I think will love him the most and select him here at 6 because they need a new franchise QB.
    7) Kansas City
    Jake Long
    Offensive Tackle
    University of Michigan

    reasoning: With the loss of Willie Roaf to retirement they have had a huge hole at OT. Larry Johnson needs someone in front of him to block, and Long is the guy in this draft that I see as the best candidate to be that franchise LT for any team.
    8) Oakland
    Sam Baker
    Offensive Tackle
    University of Southern California

    reasoning: They need talent on their OL. Specifically a LT who can pass block and fit their ZBS. Sam Baker is an amazing fit at both and will help the entire Raiders offense by helping them shore up the left side of their line with him and Gallery as the blind side protection for the QB and a Walter Jones-Stevie Hutch type combo in the run game.
    9) Cincinnati
    Sedrick Ellis
    Defensive Tackle
    University of Southern California

    reasoning: The Bengals have a huge need all across their defense. The biggest position they need may not be DT, but Ellis is too god to pass up as he will be a lot like Warren Sapp was in his heyday and should be a great fit for the UT spot in the defense for the Bengals.
    10) Chicago
    Brian Brohm
    Quarterback
    University of Louisville

    reasoning: They need a QB. Brian Griese and Rex Grossman just don't cut it. Brohm can make all the throws and has the leadership that neither of those players have.
    11) Arizona
    Malcolm Jenkins
    Cornerback
    Ohio State University

    reasoning: They need a Corner in the worst possible way and Malcolm Jenkins is easily the best CB in the draft. This seems like a pretty simple fit to me.
    12) Denver
    Dan Conner
    Linebacker
    Pennsylvania State University

    reasoning: DJ Williams is out of position for the Broncos at MLB. This pick will allow Williams to move back to his more natural WLB spot and Conner can be a very good MLB in the NFL in my mind. His skill set would be perfect for Denver's scheme.
    13) Carolina
    Keith Rivers
    Linebacker
    University of Southern California

    reasoning: With Thomas Davis and Jon Beason the Panthers have solid backers at the SLB and MLB/WLB spot depending on who the Panthers get here. Because Conner is gone, the Panthers take a WLB here in Keith Rivers and allow Beason to move back to MLB and it give the Panthers one of the best young LB corps in the league
    14) Detroit
    Vernon Gholston
    Defensive End
    Ohio State University

    reasoning: While it may be argued that White and Alama-Francis are good DE's for them, I think they need that true all around DE in Gholston and would select him here.
    15) Philadelphia
    DeSean Jackson
    Wide Receiver
    University of California

    reasoning: The Eagles dones exactly have the best talent at WR. Reggie Brown is a #3 playing #2 and Curtis is a #2 playing #1. Jackson is a true #1 and will allow them to have true targets for Donovan McNabb to throw to.
    16) New Orleans
    Aqib Talib
    Cornerback
    University of Kansas

    reasoning: They have one of the worst pass defenses in the league and their #2 CB is a huge reason for that. It's changed more than once this year and I feel that Aqib Talib will be a great fit for them at #2 CB to McKenzie.
    17) Buffalo
    Malcolm Kelly
    Wide Receiver
    University of Oklahoma

    reasoning: While Evans is good a #2 is needed. Kelly is a guy who could be a #1 on any other team and with Evans would give the Bills a Holt-Bruce type combination.
    18) Houston
    Jonathan Stewart
    Running Back
    University of Oregon

    reasoning: The Texans need a RB that is better than Ahman Green to carry the load. Stewart is a workhorse and has the vision and speed to play in the ZBS they run but also the power that will allow them to use him in all situations.
    19) Washington
    Calais Campbell
    Defensive End
    University of Miami, Florida

    reasoning: The Skins need a DE and Campbell is one of the best this year. I'm surprised he fell this far in my mock. But he did and the Skins get a guy who can actually pass rush across from Carter.
    20) Tennessee
    Frank Okam
    Defensive Tackle
    University of Texas

    reasoning: With the possible loss of Haynesworth, they need another good Defensive Tackle. Okam IMO is a beast man and can fit the HAynesworth role in Schwartz's defense.
    21) Minnesota
    Limas Sweed
    Wide Receiver
    University of Texas

    reasoning: They need a featured WR to go with Sidney Rice. Sweed had the injury but IMO someone will take a chance this high on him and that team to me is Minnesota. I think he is worth this pick and will prove in Minnesota that he is. He has the hands and the quickness to do well in the WCO for Minnesota
    22) Seattle
    Felix Jones
    Running Back
    University of Arkansas

    reasoning: Alexander is on his last leg, so they take another SEC RB to replace him eventually.
    23) Dallas (from Cleveland)
    Mike Jenkins
    Cornerback
    University of South Florida

    reasoning: Newman is a sick CB, but they need a guy opposite from him. Jenkins is a good man up CB but has some holes in his zone coverage.
    24) Pittsburgh
    Michael Oher
    Offensive Tackle
    University of Mississippi

    reasoning: The Steelers need a true LT. Oher has the ability to be that LT as he is one in the SEC. He's the power blocker in the run game they like and can maul people in pass pro. At worst he can be their starting guard.
    25) Tampa Bay
    Early Doucet
    Wide Receiver
    Louisiana State University

    reasoning: The Bucs need a speedy receiver. While Doucet may not be the fastest guy, he reminds me much of Galloway in that he knows how to get separation and find the open holes in the zones as well as has enough speed to beat people deep.
    26) New York Giants
    Antoine Cason
    Cornerback
    University of Arizona

    reasoning: The Giants need a CB across from last year's pick Aaron Ross. Cason will be a solid #2 to Ross and should also be a good KR/PR for the Giants.
    27) San Diego
    Roy Schuening
    Offensive Guard
    Oregon State University

    reasoning: Goff is solid but he's getting older and this is his eventual replacement.
    28) Jacksonville
    Derrick Harvey
    Defensive End
    University of Florida

    reasoning: The Jags need a true pass rusher. Harvey is an amazing pass rusher and defensive leader for the Gators and will be a great fit in Jacksonville.
    29) Green Bay
    Shawn Crable
    Linebacker
    University of Michigan

    reasoning: The Cheeseheads need some help at the SLB spot. With this pick they get the perfect complimentary LB to Hawk and Burnett and create another BAMF LB corps.
    30) San Francisco (from Indianapolis)
    Kentwan Balmer
    Defensive End
    University of North Carolina

    reasoning: They need a true 3-4 DE now that Bryant Young is retiring and Balmer fits the mold in the same way Young did.
    31) Dallas
    Mario Manningham
    Wide Receiver
    University of Michigan

    reasoning: On a team with very few needs, Manningham will be the perfect guy to learn from Terrell Owens on how to be a true NFL WR. Manningham has the raw physical tools to be a great one and he'll be the #3-#4 to start out in Dallas depending on what happens with Patrick Crayton this offseason.
    ##) New England
    FORFEITED

    Round 2
    32) Miami

    Note 1 - Order used is from GBN draft report according to what it would really be.

    Note 2 - Team needs may not be entirely accurate, but I did my best to try and assess the needs

    Note 3 - I don't do trades, so even if you say your team will trade down, and I agree, I just don't predict them as they are too hard to be accurate on.

    Note 4 - I also don't project comp picks for the draft. Not my thing and it's too unpredictable.

    Good Cardinals draft, address 3 of our biggest needs and good high value pick in doing so.

      I'd prefer Otah to Oher, Though can't lose either way.

      We don't need a Harry Douglas WR, he's nothing different from Willie Reid, IMO.

      Give Us Tracy Porter in round 2, the CB/KR/PR we need.

      and since we took Porter, give us John Greco in round 3 as the LG/RG/RT Swingman.

      Yeah, I play WoW too.[/CENTER]

        For the most part this a good Vikings Draft except the second 3rd rounder. DE is a need but we arleady are deep at the position with young promising talent. DE should only be considered if a stud DE falls to us in the first round like Derrick Harvey, Calais Campbell or Vernon Gholston(doubt it but I can dream).

          I was thinking it would be more of a platooon deal. James and Edwards on one side, Udeze and Avril on the other. Avril as the pass rusher.

            It's already a platoon deal lol... LDE: Kenechi Udeze & Brian Robison(also plays a bit of RDE) RDE: Erasmus James & Ray Edwards . If they can get one of the top DE's in the draft i think they ship off injury prone James if not they don't worry about DE.

              I think the Raiders will try and resign Tommy Kelly, who was having a good year before getting hurt. That would give them Burgess, Kelly, Richardson, and Clemons. If they don't resign Kelly, which is possible since he'll be coming off ACL surgery, it probably means they are going to target C. Long or V. Gholston in the first. For that reason I think the second round pick should be OLB/DT/WR.

              I like the Baker pick though, but I think DL is a bigger need, the Raiders gave up 29 sacks in the first 9 games this year, and have given up 5 in the last 5 games and 0 in the last 3. Also the penalties are coming down. The OL is starting to come together, though Simms is not a long term solution.

                Way too high for Baker, and O-line, in terms of need, doesn't even compare to the load of crap we have on our D-line. Bad pick in terms of value and need. With both Ellis and Gholston on the board, this pick just staggers me. Jackson in Rd2 is okay, I suppose. Mandates that Burgess is either relegated to a specialist role or sent packing, though.

                  A+ Bills draft. Every pick is good.

                    Good Buc draft in my opinion. I like the prospect of Doucet, Pressley and Ainge for the Buccaneers.

                      linebackers can be found a dime a dozen specially in the later rounds it isa position that it is easy to find specially an inside linebacker now an impact middle man like dorsey though is rare.

                      I know you want your falcons to get him but still dude that seems to be a reach just to pass up on him.

                      Now it is different though gotta say.

                              Great falcons draft, though I doubt Woodson falls into the 2nd. If he does slip into the 20s of the 1st round, someone (possibly the falcons) will get an itchy trigger finger and jump up for him.

                              Particularly like grabbing Williams and Richardson. Means that we can see who is better suited to LT/RT. I'd expect that to be Williams as LT and Rich at RT, but you never know. Just gives us more options.

                              Edit: Just to say, I appreciate that you're not looking at trades, so the Woodson point is merely an aside...
