One More Mock Draft! This one comes from Graby
1. St. Louis Rams
Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
The conventional thought is that you just don’t pass on a potential franchise quarterback when he is available. My concerns are his arm and the offense he played in while at Oklahoma. But the Rams need a new QB. Kyle Boller won’t do.
2. Detroit Lions
Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
With all of the additions on the defensive line, you couldn’t go wrong adding either Suh or an LT to protect Matthew Stafford for the next ten years. I’d go for the LT protection normally, but Suh is a much more valuable pick at this position.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
Some think he is the best player in the draft. If he falls to them, they should take him. He’ll have to get used to losing though…
4. Washington Redskins
Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
While both of my associates think Berry would be a great fit, and so do I, they almost have to take a LT here. Samuels retired and as I am writing this, they only have four picks in the draft (per usual). However, something tells me they’ll be acquiring more draft picks, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they go in another direction should they get some more picks. Shanahan’s offense calls for the type of player Trent Williams is. I see them passing on Okung.
5. Kansas City Chiefs
Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
My position for the last several weeks is that Eric Berry is taken if he falls to the Chiefs. They call him the next Ed Reed. The next big thing. They have a serviceable LT right now and Eric Berry is just too good to pass up, even if this slot is a little high for a safety.
6. Seattle Seahawks
Russel Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
Walter Jones is old. They need to find a replacement. Some call Okung the safest pick out of all the Tackles. Unless Pete Carroll pulls a southern California type of move, I expect them to pick Okung.
7. Cleveland Browns
Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
This, I think, is the biggest question mark of the draft. They need a QB, but they just had an awful experience with a former Notre Dame QB. They need safety help, but Berry is off the board and can’t take Thomas this early. They just shipped a problem child WR out, so no Dez Bryant. I’ll have to go with a front 7 pick. Although I’m tempted to go with Joe Haden at CB because they need help here, I’ll go out on a limb and say Derrick Morgan, who is a bigger DE, which is needed for the 3-4.
8. Oakland Raiders
Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
I think they need him. But who knows with the Raiders? Is Jacoby Ford available?
9. Buffalo Bills
Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
The growing sentiment is that they are going to pick him up at this spot. How about you trade for a proven, yet raw QB in Campbell w/ a second or third and use the rest of your picks to shore up your other many holes though? Watch out for Dez Bryant here.
10. Jacksonville Jaguars
Rolando McClain , LB, Alabama
I think they need secondary help. In fact, they need help everywhere. None of their picks are panning out as of late, but I will have to go with Rolando McClain because this guy seems to be a safe pick. May not wow you, but can probably be put in a number of LB positions and do his job.
11. Denver Broncos
Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
I think he is going to be a great fit as soon as he is humbled. He has had no off the field incidents. Just needs to work on his work ethic. I think he’ll work hard to prove everybody wrong that doubted him.
12. Miami Dolphins
Sergio Kindle, LB, Texas
Part of me wants to say C.J. Spiller. I believe Williams and Brown are entering the last year of their contract. The other part of me wants to say Earl Thomas, seeing as how they lost out on Rolle and released last year’s starter. However, they are able to replace the loss of J.T. with Kindle, who will fit in well with Crowder, Dansby, and crew.
13. San Francisco 49ers
Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
They were hoping that Berry or Thomas would fall to them because they need secondary help. Spiller is also in consideration but they have a three back system and while CJ Spiller is talented, they have more pressing needs. With that said, CB or OT is the way to go with this pick and with no CB’s taken yet they are certain one of their choice will fall to them with their second first round pick. This clears the path for enigmatic OT Anthony Davis to be taken at 13. However, don’t be surprised if Haden is the pick.
14. Seattle Seahawks
CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson
Seattle has so many positions of need so it is hard to tell which way they will go. I will have to agree that CJ Spiller is the pick though. Seattle may even take him with their sixth pick because the draft has so many OT’s and out of fear that JAX, MIA or SF would take him.
15. New York Giants
Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
With Osi likely on his way out, and NY always looking for DL help, why not get a potentially freakish athlete?
16. Tennessee Titans
Everson Griffin, DE, USC
With Pierre-Paul going off the board a pick before them, they won’t be too unhappy with another DE that falls in their lap.
17. San Francisco 49ers
Earl Thomas, S, Texas
Somehow Thomas falls into their lap and they couldn’t be any happier.
18. Pittsburgh Steelers
Joe Haden, CB, Florida
Something tells me that this won’t be the only pick that they have on Thursday. Nonetheless, they need WR, DL, and CB help, and with the best CB still on the board, they’ll likely take him. Don’t hang out with Ben though, Joe.
19. Atlanta Falcons
Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan
They need DE help. Dunlap also on the board but Brandon Graham higher up on their list. Would not be surprised if they surprised everybody and picked up a CB to set themselves on both sides for the next five years.
20. Houston Texans
Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
Hole that Dunta Robinson created is now filled with the addition of Kyle Wilson. Wouldn’t be surprised if Matthews is the pick, but there are a lot of RB’s left and less potentially elite CB’s.
21. Cincinnati Bengals
Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
Almost chose Roy Wil…ahem Taylor Mays, but they have a huge need at TE and have been looking for ways to get one. If Gresham is fully healthy, he could be a star in this system.
22. New England Patriots
Jerry Hughes, LB, TCU
Something tells me that they will choose him. They need LB help, and are slowly creating a young LB nucleus. Can’t see them going for a WR in the first round, especially considering what they got from Chad Jackson
23. Green Bay Packers
Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers
I think it’s a toss up between him and Taylor Mays, but because they have a serviceable Bigby but two aging CB’s, they’ll pick up a young CB to groom. But Taylor Mays may wind up here.
24. Philadelphia Eagles
Taylor Mays, S, USC
They’ve picked up Bell to help McCoy. Stole Sims away from Lions. Signed Marlin Jackson for safety help. Yet, although they need a lot of help at the DE spot, with Sims and Mays manning the defense, they’ve got the leadership, agility, and attitude back on the defensive side of the ball in Philly.
25. Baltimore Ravens
Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama
They’re going to take who is at the top of their draft board most likely. Right? While they need a little help at the DT spot, did you see their CB play last year?
26. Arizona Cardinals
Sean Witherspoon, LB, Missouri
They need LB help after losing Dansby. They’re going to miss him but Witherspoon is athletic enough to plug in wherever needed and may soon help them forget about their former colleague.
27. Dallas Cowboys
Charles Brown, OT, USC
They just got rid of Flozell and need to make sure that their OT spots are secure. This pick will lead them in that direction. Not flashy, but solid.
28. San Diego Chargers
Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee
They want Ryan Matthews, but decide to go with the big guy to replace the other Williams DT who left town.
29. New York Jets
Brian Price, DT, UCLA
Rex Ryan is a defensive guy. He picked up an extra RB and WR over the last few weeks. This lets him play around on defense. Price is a little larger than Odrick and is higher on their board.
30. Minnesota Vikings
Patrick Robinson, CB, FSU
They are desperate for CB help and he is one of the last quality guys left on the board. With Winfield aging and the rest of the CB’s continuously getting hurt, they need to pick up a CB.
31. Indianapolis Colts
Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho
They released their starting guard after the Super Bowl. They need to start looking for a long-term replacement. Here’s one…
32. New Orleans Saints
Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida
Odrick or Dunlap. What to do? Something tells me Dunlap. Something else tells me Odrick…
