September 10th Mock Draft
My initial attempt of the year for NEPatriotsDraft. Let me know what you think!
September 10th Mock Draft
1. Jacksonville Jaguars – DE Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina*
Drafting Bridgewater is a consideration, but Clowney has freakish physical talent.
2. Arizona Cardinals – OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M
Incumbent Levi Brown has been one of the worst blindside protectors in the league.
3. Oakland Raiders – QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville*
It’s unlikely that any of the four quarterbacks currently on roster will become quality starters.
4. Cleveland Browns – CB Bradley Roby, Ohio St.*
Another athletic man coverage cornerback to start opposite stud Joe Haden would be ideal.
5. Buffalo Bills – LB Anthony Barr, UCLA
Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine implements plenty of linebacker blitzes into his defense.
6. New York Jets – LB C.J. Mosley, Alabama
Mosley is the type of scheme-versatile linebacker that should appeal to GM John Idzik.
7. Tennessee Titans – DE Trent Murphy, Stanford
Drafting a productive pass rusher would allow Tennessee to part ways with Kam Wimbley.
8. Carolina Panthers – OT Taylor Lewan, Michigan
Lewan would provide a massive upgrade over Byron Bell and help Carolina pound the ball.
9. Kansas City Chiefs – DE Stephon Tuitt, Notre Dame*
Left end Tyson Jackson offers little to nothing as a pass rusher, which makes Tuitt appealing.
10. Philadelphia Eagles – WR Marqise Lee, Southern California*
Lee, who played with QB Matt Barkley, could replace impending free agent Jeremy Maclin.
11. St. Louis Rams – OG Cyril Richardson, Baylor
The 6’5”, 335-pound Richardson could complete St. Louis’ offensive line, currently missing a LG.
12. San Diego Chargers – OT Cyrus Kouandjio, Alabama*
Kouandjio kept D.J. Fluker on the right side at Alabama and could do the same in San Diego.
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – DT Louis Nix, Notre Dame*
Playing next to a 350-pound space eater would elevate star Gerald McCoy to another level.
14. Minnesota Vikings – LB Ryan Shazier, Ohio St.*
An incredibly athletic weakside ‘backer, Shazier would join Chad Greenway and Erin Henderson.
15. Detroit Lions – OT Antonio Richardson, Tennessee*
Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan’s man-blocking scheme favors Richardson’s size and power.
16. Miami Dolphins – OT Cameron Erving, Florida St.*
So far, the idea that Jonathan Martin is Miami’s left tackle of the future remains unsubstantiated.
17. St. Louis Rams (from Redskins) – DB Ha’sean Clinton-Dix, Alabama*
The cornerback position has been addressed, but the Rams still lack quality options at safety.
18. Chicago Bears – OT James Hurst, North Carolina
Kyle Long will probably remain at right guard, which makes right tackle a priority this offseason.
19. Indianapolis Colts – WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson*
Reggie Wayne is aging, and Darrius Heyward-Bey is not a capable number one option at receiver.
20. Dallas Cowboys – DE Aaron Lynch, South Florida*
Franchise player Anthony Spencer may not be a member of the Cowboys beyond this season.
21. Cincinnati Bengals – LB Khalil Mack, Buffalo
Adding the disruptive Mack as the eventual successor to James Harrison makes sense here.
22. Baltimore Ravens – WR Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt
The tall, strong, physical Matthews would make sense as a replacement for Anquan Boldin.
23. New York Giants – CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Oregon*
Corey Webster, Aaron Ross, and Jayron Hosley struggled in ’12; Terrell Thomas was hurt again.
24. New Orleans Saints – LB Kyle Van Noy, Brigham Young
Even when healthy, Will Smith may not possess the athleticism to stand up in the 3-4 defense.
25. Pittsburgh Steelers – TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington*
Heath Miller will turn 31 this October and is still recovering from a serious knee injury.
26. Atlanta Falcons – DT Timmy Jernigan, Florida St.*
Starter Corey Peters is among the weak links on Atlanta’s defense, clearing the way for Jernigan.
27. Houston Texans – DT Daniel McCullers, Tennessee
Despite his size, McCullers is also disruptive enough against the pass to fit Wade Phillips’ defense.
28. Seattle Seahawks – OG Gabe Jackson, Mississippi St.
Seattle’s otherwise-loaded roster is uneven at best along the offensive line and lands a great value.
29. Green Bay Packers – TE Eric Ebron, North Carolina*
Perennially-underwhelming tight end Jermichael Finley could be made expendable by Ebron.
30. New England Patriots – DE Kareem Martin, North Carolina
At 6’5” and 265 pounds, Martin possesses the size New England covets in their front seven.
31. San Francisco 49ers – CB Loucheiz Purifoy, Florida*
Purifoy has the size and athleticism to intrigue as a developmental press-man cornerback.
32. Denver Broncos – DT Anthony Johnson, Louisiana St.*
Johnson would fit well as a three-technique next to 2013 first-round pick Sylvester Williams.
