  • (Insert creative title here) 3 Rounder 3/8

    Please leave constructive "WE WOULD NEVER DO THAT!" or anything of that nature. If you think I made a bad pick, please tell me why and who you would take (of who's available) instead.

    1) Miami Dolphins – DE Chris Long, Virginia
    - Bill Parcells will look to install the 3-4 in Miami, and to do so, will take the most versatile player for that system in this draft to build around. Long could feasibly play DE or rushbacker in the 3-4, and brings experience in the system at DE with him.
    2) St. Louis Rams – OT Jake Long, Michigan
    - The Rams take the heir apparent to Orlando Pace, who has missed the majority of the last 2 seasons with leg injuries.
    3) Atlanta Falcons – QB Matt Ryan, Boston College
    - Missing out on the player they really wanted, the Falcons take Ryan as their QB of the future.
    4) Oakland Raiders – RB Darren McFadden, Arkansas
    - With the signing of Tommy Kelly to a ridiculously overpriced contract, the Raiders made it fairly clear who they want to draft. Al Davis loves speed, one of the many attributes of which McFadden has plenty. He and Justin Fargas should form a nice duo.
    5) Kansas City Chiefs – DT Glenn Dorsey, LSU
    - Also looking for and missing out on Jake Long, the Chiefs do the next best thing by adding quite possibly the best 3-tech prospect since Warren Sapp in Glenn Dorsey, who should thrive in their Tampa 2.
    6) New York Jets – DE Vernon Gholston, OSU
    - With all their recent signings/trades, the Jets have taken care of all their major needs, so they go BPA here in Vernon Gholston, whom they hope will team with Calvin Pace to give them a duo ala Merriman/Phillips in San Diego.
    7) New England Patriots – CB Mike Jenkins, USF
    - After having the player they really wanted taken right ahead of them, the Patriots settle for trying to find the replacement for Asante Samuel.
    8) Baltimore Ravens – CB Leodis McKelvin, Troy
    - The Ravens have issues at CB, and without a franchise QB worth selecting at this pick available, they shore up the CB spot with McKelvin.
    9) Cincinnati Bengals – DT Sedrick Ellis, USC
    - Shocked that he's lasted this long, the Bengals jump on the opportunity to select Ellis, who could play at either DT spot for them. At 6'1" 308, he has the size to play NT in the 4-3, but his ability to penetrate and disrupt could put him at UT often.
    10) New Orleans Saints – LB Keith Rivers, USC
    - The Saints already added Vilma, but their LB corps still needs some work. Keith Rivers will add some much needed athleticism to the group.
    11) Buffalo Bills – WR Limas Sweed, Texas
    - The Bills take Sweed, who should be an excellent compliment to Lee Evans.
    12) Denver Broncos – FS Kenny Phillips, Miami
    - Phillips is a rare athlete who should be able to help improve the Broncos subpar defensive play from last season.
    13) Carolina Panthers – OT Ryan Clady, BSU
    - The Panthers shore up their OL by taking the young and athletic Clady.
    14) Chicago Bears – OT Chris Williams, Vanderbilt
    - The Bears had issues on the OL last year, and look to shore it up with the addition of Williams.
    15) Detroit Lions – DE Quentin Groves, Auburn
    - The Lions look for an athletic DE that can get after the QB, and Groves fits the bill.
    16) Arizona Cardinals – RB Jonathan Stewart, Oregon
    - With Edgerrin James aging, the Cardinals will need a new RB soon, and they benefit from one of the strongest RB classes in recent memory, picking up a potential workhorse at the 16th pick.
    17) Minnesota Vikings – DE Derrick Harvey, Florida
    - The Vikings look to bolster their pass rush with the athletic Harvey.
    18) Houston Texans – RB Rashard Mendenhall, Illinois
    - The Texans shore up their running game with the big but speedy Mendenhall.
    19) Philadelphia Eagles – WR James Hardy, Indiana
    - The Eagles add the playmaker at WR that they seem to have been searching for all offseason in James Hardy.
    20) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – WR Malcolm Kelly, Oklahoma
    - The Bucs give their QB, whoever he may be, more options at WR.
    21) Washington Redskins – DE Calais Campbell, Miami
    - Campbell provides depth and versatility for the Redskins. He could be an every down DE, or potentially slide inside in certain situations.
    22) Dallas Cowboys – CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Tennessee State
    - The Cowboys grab one of the best CBs in this draft who can also potentially return kicks and punts.
    23) Pittsburgh Steelers – OT Sam Baker, USC
    - The Steelers bolster their OL and give their franchise QB a blindside protector for years to come.
    24) Tennessee Titans - WR Devin Thomas, MSU
    - The Titans give Vince Young a big, fast receiver who should, along with Alge Crumpler, help immensely in his development as a QB.
    25) Seattle Seahawks – S Reggie Smith, Oklahoma
    - The Seahawks bolster their secondary in hopes that it can match the level of play that their front 7 displayed at the end of last season.
    26) Jacksonville Jaguars – DE Philip Merling, Clemson
    - The Jaguars need more consistency and a better pass rush from their DEs. Merling could provide them both, and is great value at this point.
    27) San Diego Chargers – OT Gosder Cherlius, Boston College
    - The Chargers shore up their OL long term with the addition of Cherlius, who could project to either OT spot at the next level.
    28) Dallas Cowboys – WR DeSean Jackson, Cal
    - The Cowboys give Tony Romo another playmaker on offense in Jackson, who will also return kicks and punts.
    29) San Francisco 49ers – WR Mario Manningham, Michigan
    - The 49ers get a playmaker at WR to compliment Gore and Davis, and give Alex Smith an arsenal of weapons at his disposal.
    30) Green Bay Packers – CB Aqib Talib, Kansas
    - The Packers have one of the best CB duos in the NFL, but they aren't getting any younger. Talib provides depth and a future starter for them, as well as an explosive kick and punt returner.
    31) New England Patriots – Forfeit for Cheating
    32) New York Giants – LB Dan Connor, PSU
    - Isn’t this a great scenario for the Giants, win the Super Bowl, then get one of the best LBs in the draft at the end of the 1st round to bolster their already potent front 7. Connor has the athleticism to step into one of the OLB spots now, and the intelligence to eventually replace Antonio Pierce at the MLB spot.

    33) Miami Dolphins – QB Brian Brohm, Louisville
    - The Dolphins get a franchise QB in the 2nd round, and have the faces of their franchise on both offense and defense for the Bill Parcells era.
    34) St. Louis Rams – DT Kentwan Balmer, UNC
    - After addressing their offensive line with the 2nd pick, the Rams shore up the line on the other side of the ball with Balmer.
    35) Oakland Raiders – DE Lawrence Jackson, USC
    - The Raiders need defensive line help, and Jackson should develop into a quality starter.
    36) Kansas City Chiefs – OT Jeff Otah, Pittsburgh
    - The Chiefs luck out after grabbing Dorsey early and get a solid OT that will help to shore up their suddenly weak OL.
    37) New York Jets – OG Branden Albert, UVA
    - The game is won in the trenches, and the Jets seem to be investing heavily there. They fortify the offensive side yet again with Albert.
    38) Atlanta Falcons – DT Trevor Laws, Notre Dame
    - After cutting Rod Coleman, the Falcons need a new UT, enter Laws, who also brings versatility and a nonstop motor to the table.
    39) Baltimore Ravens – LB Erin Henderson, Maryland
    - The Ravens add another young, versatile LB to their already solid front 7.
    40) San Francisco 49ers – DT Pat Sims, Auburn
    - The 49ers shore up their defensive front by adding Sims, who should be able to slide over to 3-4 DE and be very successful for them.
    41) New Orleans Saints – CB Antoine Cason, Arizona
    - Everything falls very well for the Saints, and they grab a solid CB early on in round 2.
    42) Buffalo Bills – CB Patrick Lee, Auburn
    - The Bills pick up a big, physical CB that should fit their scheme very well.
    43) Denver Broncos – LB Phillip Wheeler, GT
    - The Broncos need a LB, and Wheeler should be a good one, that is if you have any trust in Mike Singletary’s ability to evaluate LB talent.
    44) Carolina Panthers – QB Chad Henne, Michigan
    - Jake Delhomme isn’t getting any younger, and the 2009 QB crop is terrible. The Panthers take Henne as a developmental project to eventually take over for Delhomme.
    45) Chicago Bears – RB Felix Jones, Arkansas
    - The Bears draft a runningback to compliment and perhaps potentially replace Cedric Benson.
    46) Detroit Lions – CB Charles Godfrey, Iowa
    - The Lions address their CB position with a big, physical corner who fits their scheme well.
    47) Cincinnati Bengals – DE Jason Jones, Eastern Michigan
    - The Bengals pick up Justin Smith’s replacement, who is also a versatile player with experience at UT, and he could slide inside on passing downs if need be.
    48) Minnesota Vikings – OT Anthony Collins, Kansas
    - Already having the best left side in professional football, the Vikings shore up the right side by adding Collins.
    49) Atlanta Falcons – LB Jerod Mayo, UT
    - The Falcons add a speedy playmaking LB to their defense.
    50) Philadelphia Eagles – CB Tracy Porter, Indiana
    - Lito Sheppard and Sheldon Brown are a solid duo, but they’re getting older. Porter infuses some youth and gives a potential start a year or two down the road.
    51) Arizona Cardinals – CB Justin King, PSU
    - The Cardinals shore up their secondary by infusing some youth in King.
    52) Washington Redskins – OT Carl Hicks, Nebraska
    - The Redskins look to shore up their OL with Nicks.
    53) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – CB Brandon Flowers, VT
    - Tampa Bay gets in on the mini run on corners, taking Flowers, who should fit their system very well.
    54) Pittsburgh Steelers – WR Early Doucet, LSU
    - The Steelers get a nice receiver and eventual compliment to Santonio Holmes late in round 2 in Doucet.
    55) Tennessee Titans – CB Terrell Thomas, USC
    - The Titans grab a CB while the good ones are still left, picking up the underrated Thomas.
    56) Seattle Seahawks – OG Roy Schuening, Oregon State
    - The Seashawks shore up the interior of their OL with one of the best guards in this class.
    57) Green Bay Packers – LB Tavares Gooden, Miami
    - The Packers put another stud LB alongside Hawk and Barnett.
    58) Miami Dolphins – DT Ahtyba Rubin, Iowa State
    - Bill Parcells continues to install the 3-4 in Miami, drafting his NT for the system.
    59) Jacksonville Jaguars – S DaJuan Morgan, NCSU
    - The Jaguars look to shore up their secondary, and give themselves one of the youngest and most talented safety duos in the NFL in the process.
    60) Indianapolis Colts – DE Cliff Avril, Purdue
    - The Colts look to bolster their pass rush after the debacle that ended their season against the Chargers, and Avril is everything the Colts look for in a DE, perfect fit.
    61) Green Bay Packers – TE Dustin Keller, Purdue
    - The Packers add the versatile and speedy Keller, who can split wide or line up at TE, to their roster.
    62) Dallas Cowboys – RB Chris Johnson, East Carolina
    - The Cowboys take a burner to line up at RB to compliment Marion Barber.
    63) New England Patriots – LB Shawn Crable, Michigan
    - Having missed out on their rushbacker 56 picks ago, the Patriots finally grab one in Crable.
    64) New York Giants – S Thomas DeCoud, Cal
    - Needing a safety, the Giants draft the versatile DeCoud, who also has experience at corner.

    65) Miami Dolphins – OT Heath Benedict, Newberry
    66) St. Louis Rams – DE Chris Ellis, VT
    67) Kansas City Chiefs – LB Xavier Adibi, VT
    68) New York Jets – OT Oniel Cousins, UTEP
    69) Atlanta Falcons – OT Tony Hills, Texas
    70) New England Patriots - LB Curtis Lofton, Oklahoma
    71) San Francisco 49ers – DT Frank Okam, Texas
    72) Buffalo Bills – TE Fred Davis, USC
    73) Jacksonville Jaguars – DT Dre Moore, Maryland
    74) Minnesota Vikings – DT Marcus Harrison, Arkansas
    75) Carolina Panthers – WR Earl Bennett, Vanderbilt
    76) Chicago Bears – QB Joe Flacco, Delaware
    77) Detroit Lions – LB Geno Hayes, FSU
    78) Cincinnati Bengals – RB Kevin Smith, UCF
    79) New Orleans Saints – TE Martellus Bennett Texas A&M
    80) Houston Texans – CB Jack Ikegwuonu, Wisconsin
    81) Philadelphia Eagles – LB/DE Marcus Howard, Georgia
    82) Arizona Cardinals – LB Jonathan Goff, Vanderbilt
    83) Minnesota Vikings – S Josh Barrett, ASU
    84) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – DL Kendall Langford, Hampton
    85) Washington Redskins – CB Trae Williams, USF
    86) Tennessee Titans – OG Chico Rachal, USC
    87) Seattle Seahawks – RB Ray Rice, Rutgers
    88) Detroit Lions – RB Jamaal Charles, Texas
    89) Pittsburgh Steelers – OG Eric Young, UT
    90) Jacksonville Jaguars – WR Donnie Avery, Houston
    91) Chicago Bears – WR Eddie Royal, VT
    92) Green Bay Packers – RB Matt Forte, Tulane
    93) Dallas Cowboys – LB Darrell Robertson, GT
    94) Indianapolis Colts – DT DeMario Pressley, NCSU
    95) New England Patriots – DE Red Bryant, Texas A&M
    96) New York Giants – CB Antwaun Molden, Eastern Kentucky

    The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

    If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

    I would be pleased if the Vikings got away with those picks! Nicely done!


    • #3
      If you do it like that give the redskins Sam Baker in the first and Brandon Albert in the 2nd

        Good pick for the Chargers considering that Smith and Phillips are already taken.


        • #5
          We won't go for groves with Harvey and Mendenhall right there for the taking, Flowers is a better fit for the cover 2 than Godfrey is, besides, with Mayo still there I doubt Godfrey will be the pick.

          I think youre pulling the trigger on Gooden a bit quick, he's more of a third rounder, especially with Adibi, Hayes, Lofton and Goff still there.

          As for round three, I think I've got too many problems with the first two picks to really make a point about it (domino-effect and all).

            This is a perfect Packers mock, on the team boards we have a voting mock going and our first three picks are Talib, Gooden and Kellar. So good job.

              Id say perfect Bears pick


              • #8
                Probably the best case scenario for the bears. I would like every one of those picks. A+


                • #9
                  Not very good for the Falcons. Matt Ryan is alright. Trevor Laws is a no. Jonathan Babineaux, a second round pick a few years ago, is our under tackle. We just signed Kindal Moorehead to be his backup. We need a nose tackle, not an under tackle.

                    • #11
                      Good first round pick. Don't like the second round pick. Would rather pick a wide reciever. I don't know where people are getting the idea the Redskins need O-Line. Maybe it's Jon Jansen getting older but we have Stephon Heyer who could turn out to be good rather than bad.


                      • #12
                        Very Good Chiefs draft


                        • #13
                          I highly doubt we pass on Flacco for Brohm, but other than that, it looks pretty good for the Phins.

                            wow, flacco in the 3rd? id take him there.

                            great bears mock though theres some receivers i prefer to royal. not bad overall


                            • #15
                              PERFECT first 3 rounds for Buffalo

                              1.) Limas Sweed
                              2.) Patrick Lee
                              3.) Fred Davis

                              I would be ecstatic if this happened. +rep for you
