With the 16th pick in the 2009 NFL draft…

The San Diego Chargers select…

Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU

This might be a bit of a reach, but with Igor Olshansky possibly leaving this becomes an area of need. I thought about both Mereno & Jerry with this pick, but the Chargers can take a RB later in this draft, & Jerry is more of a 4-3 DT then a 3-4. I tried trading back where I thought Jackson might still be available but I got no offers so I decided to go ahead and pick him here.

Daaangit, that's who I was targeting at 20!! 12 was too high for him. Nice pick for the chargers though.

I figured we would go Brown. We need a DE who can rush the passer and Brown fits that mold. I think some see him as a possible 3-4 OLB, but lets hope that we get more out of this Florida State pick.
After watching the bowl game against Wisconsin I see him as a 4-3 DE. He was constantly running stunts inside where he was beating solid NFL calibur prospects. He also showed the burst off the edge. I just can't take seeing Mario make up 1/2 of our team's sacks anymore, adding another pass rusher would make us deadly.

At 26, I may think about trading down. If anyone was thinking about trading up and grabbing one of these late first round picks, I am potentially interested.

NYJ selects Brandon Pettigrew, TE.

<ESPN Producer: Queue music, roll clip>
MKJ: A perfect fit for an up-and-down offense. Brandon Pettigrew is a solid offensive weapon, and a huge upgrade at an underperforming position on an underperforming offense.

blah blah blah

Seriously, I think its a good fit.

My only regret is knowing that, had I not chosen Pettigrew, I am certain that Spec would not have chosen him.

Spec, you're up.

With the 18th pick the Bears select Aaron Maybin DE Penn ST 6' 3 1/2" 250 #

Explanation: The Bears have 2 of the best LB in the NFC and one of the worst Pass defenses last year. So with no CB rated high enough the best way to go is to pressure the passer to help the pass D out. While WR and DT were also a consideration here, I went with the highest rated player on the board at a need position.

Here's his explanation . I guess I'd be ticked a bit because the purpose is to simulate the real thing and one pick will throw the whole thing out of whack . Besides I wouldn't want the Texans to take Wells .


you guys are taking this mock way too serious. its true that the texans have never taking a running back in the first round but that doesn't mean its not a possibility. none of us ever heard of aaron maybin until last year, dj moore is a reach in the first round, brian cushing wouldnt start in our defense and isnt worth a first round pick in imo and there is word he might be on steroids. and yosarian, this whole mock is very unrealistic! we cannot even trade picks. we have more first round picks on our defense that we do on offense. yet, our offense finished #3 and our defense #23. i have always said that our problem on defense had more to do with the scheme than our personel.

everybody claims wells is injury prone but i couldn't find any other injuries besides the toe injury he had and he only missed 3 games due to injury his entire college carreer. he put up better numbers than moreno. this guy is a stud.

With the 19th pick the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select......Jeremy Maclin - WR, Missouri.


The Bucs have quite a few needs. WR is one of them and Maclin is the highest rated player still on the board for the Bucs. Joey Galloway and Ike Hilliard are on their last legs and Michael Clayton hasn't shown anything since his rookie year. Antonio Bryant will have to be a one man show unless he gets some help. When it came down to it, the Bucs couldn't resist the allure of Maclin's potential and big play ability as a WR and a return man.

you guys are taking this mock way too serious.
Because the point is trying to replicate a REAL draft.
its true that the texans have never taking a running back in the first round but that doesn't mean its not a possibility.
True. Slaton makes this less of a need but that was a true statement.
none of us ever heard of aaron maybin until last year, dj moore is a reach in the first round, brian cushing wouldnt start in our defense and isnt worth a first round pick in imo and there is word he might be on steroids.
1. "None of us ever heard of" Mario Williams until the year of or before the draft- bad excuse by CrazyFanThatPickedWells.
2. DJ Moore has been a steady riser, but if he's a reach... don't pick him.
3. Brian Cushing would instantly start at SLB on this team, who would start ahead of him, Diles? I have high hopes for his recovery but I believe Cushing would be more game ready than Diles at Week1. Not worth a 1st round/steroid allegations? Fair to me, there are a lot of ?'s about Cushing, including his injury history.
and yosarian, this whole mock is very unrealistic! we cannot even trade picks.
So do your part to make it as realistic as possible.
we have more first round picks on our defense that we do on offense. yet, our offense finished #3 and our defense #23.
Aaannndd this has to do with selecting a 1st round running back how?
i have always said that our problem on defense had more to do with the scheme than our personel.
Very good point and that very well could be the case... but does that necessarily mean we avoid adding more talent to a squad that does need it?
everybody claims wells is injury prone but i couldn't find any other injuries besides the toe injury he had and he only missed 3 games due to injury his entire college carreer.
Wells has had ankle and wrist injuries during his Jr. year. Main injury was his toe injury that got him carted off the field and missed games, also has had hamstring issues.
he put up better numbers than moreno. this guy is a stud.
Another "stat" junkie. Maybe he should get his stats right even if he's going to use that arguement for transitioning into the pros... which i'm against.
Wells: 1,197 yards and 8 TDs
Moreno: 1,400 yards and 16 TDs

Do we want to add their receiving yards too?
Wells: 47 yards and 0 TDs
Moreno: 392 yards and 2 TDs

Maybe Colt McCoy should have declared. He had better stats than Matt Stafford so Colt easily would have been selected before him!! :cool:

I like it. Perfect spot in round 1 for Maclin, and a team that needs help at WR since Clayton hasnt exactly become a true #1 WR.

Okay folks we have learned that the San Diego Chargers will be giving up Tyson Jackson, their 3rd round pick #78th overall & San Diego's 6th round selection.

San Diego in return, will be getting Denver's 20th pick along with Denver's 48th pick.

Trade analysis:

Denver
1st (20): 850 points
2nd (48th): 420 points
1,270 total points

San Diego
1st (16): 1000 points
3rd (78): 200 points
6th 20 points
1,220 points

I gotta go, but I will make the pick when I get back.

I didn't think Maclin would make it down to #19 so I had plans to trade back, but they got nixed when Pettigrew was selected and the other team canceled on me.

I'm happy with this though. He was the highest available player on my board at my biggest need so I'm not feeling too bad about it.

I was really interested in this selection. I think Moreno is a great pick especially after being able to move back a little and get back into the 2nd round. It wouldn't surprise me if the Chargers move back on draft day.

If Houston wants to move back, we may actually be better positioned b/c the Chargers will probably want a 2nd rd pick.

Philadelphia selects LeSean McCoy RB Pitt.
It is time to give Westbrook some rest. McCoy is the guy to do this.

Some mocks have the Eagles taking Wells. I see McCoy as a better fit to the offense they run. The Eagles throw to their backs a lot. Wells only has 15 catches in his carrer.

In the draft, I look for the Eagles to trade these picks. One or both in some kind of deal for Anquan Boldin, a move down with one of them for a high 2 and a first next year, or both for a move up for someone they really like that falls.
Also I think they will make a big run at Jorden Gross in FA over drafting a tackle.

The Browns have traded their 2nd (#36), 4th and 6th round picks to the Vikings for their 1st round pick (#22).

The Browns have traded up so they can make sure they get their man.

Clint Sintim, OLB, Virginia.

With the Patriots, Dolphins, Ravens, and Steelers all coming up before the Browns 2nd round pick I needed to address the Browns most pressing need. A pass rush OLB for their 3-4 defense.

Eric Mangini continues to build in the trenches (I consider the LB's of a 3-4 defense as in the trenches) with Andre Smith and Clint Sintim.

4th, 5th, 6th and 7th round picks are very valuable to teams and are an important part of the draft. The problem is it's not as fun b/c we won't get to actually use those picks and select a player. But its a very real part of the draft and the more selections you accumulate the better chances you have to get some good players.

No future picks or current nfl players are being allowed to be used, and with good reason I think. I think if you don't want to accumulate later round picks b/c you can't use them (in this draft) then don't trade down. But texanseminole, I agree to an extent, some people may not care if they give up their 4th through 7th round picks in total... so in that sense it could be unrealistic.


Nice selection with Sintim, he should be a great fit as a 3-4 LB.

Thanks.

In regards to trading picks being unrealistic may I remind yall of the Ricky Williams trade.

I needed to trade up to get my OLB before other 3-4 teams were up and to make the deal fair I gave up a 4th and a 6th. Doesnt mean I cant trade down in the 3rd and get back a 6th or something.

Also I think when we are done with the three rounds, people will take into account the fact that you accumulated extra picks as well.

TexansSeminole
02-07-2009, 01:05 PM
Seems like some people have a problem where trades are not allowed and some people have an issue when trades are allowed.

The only thing about it is that it creates incentive to make this thing unrealistic. If you aren't making the picks for rounds 4-7 then why wouldn't you trade them off to make an extra pick in the mock. Other than that it's cool.

Oh I like your Sintim pick alot. He was my #2 player on the board at the time and he fits a need. Great pick!

I think Sintim can play both ILB and OLB in the 3-4. Kind of the way Timmons played for the Steelers this year. You can move him around. He can do all three things. First off he can tackle, he can also cover, and finally he can BLITZ. I can see the Browns moving Sintim around before the snap to confuse offenses. Wimbley is more of a stationary pass rusher, but Sintim I think is more versatile.

But texanseminole, I agree to an extent, some people may not care if they give up their 4th through 7th round picks in total... so in that sense it could be unrealistic.

Most people that watch the draft only watch the 1st or 2nd round. Not many people make it past the first day. I love to watch the whole draft just to see where every team is going, but I doubt we would make it past the 4th round in this thing before most people stopped showing up. Even now we have people that don't log in to make their team's 1st round pick! I would love to do a 7 rd mock, but there just isn't enough committed posters here to do that.

If we are using the draft pick value chart then I think all picks after the 3rd round should count as 0 points. They aren't worth anything in this draft.

As I said earlier, I like mocks with trades, but this type of thing inspires a "Madden" mentality where some people will try to unload all their picks in an attempt to get three or four players in the top 50. It's not realistic unless there is some kind of bonus involved for receving picks after the third round...

With the 24th pick, the Atlanta Falcons select BRIAN CUSHING, OLB, USC.

Explanation: I really had my eyes set on Brandon Pettigrew with this selection, but for some strange reason the Jets selected a TE in the 1st for the second year in a row. Go figure. Pettigrew would have solidified the offensive side of the ball for the Falcons for a decade and give QB Matt Ryan prolific weapons all over the field. I also thought about selecting Peria Jerry at this pick seeing that Grady Jackson isn't getting any younger. But Cushing makes the most sense. The Falcons are not bringing back UFA LB Michael Boley. Boley played out of position at the Sam LB position last year and his production fell off dramactically. Cushing gives the Falcons a perfect fit for that position, and gives the Falcons a strong core of LBs with Curtis Lofton and the underrated Keith Brooking. Look for the Falcons to go after a DT in the 2nd.

Ole Miss Texan
02-08-2009, 01:28 PM
With Laurinaitis, I see a real blue collar hard working team player. I think he should do well in a 3-4 system like New England (and just seems like a Bellichek kinda guy). Good time to select him, especially for a playoff calibre team like NE. Should be a late first rounder or maybe an early 2nd rounder at worst, imo. Nice selection.

With the 25th pick of the 2009 NFL draft, the Miami Doplhins select: Alex Mack , C out of Cal.

OK, there was a serious run of LB's over the weekend. I was really hoping Laurinaitis would keep falling. :gun:

My plan would be to move the smaller and often over-powered Satele to G. Mack has the size and power to take on the larger NT's.

Other players that were considered were: Alphonso Smith (CB), Larry English (DE/OLB) and Darrius Heyward-Bey (WR)

My apologies for the hold up.

I was really hoping Laurinaitis would keep falling. Honestly, I was surprised he fell far enough to get me excited at #25. I don't think the Phins have filled the gap at the ILB position since Zach left.

I did consider English as the OLB opposite Porter, but after doing some research I found C was a position of need too. Mack was one of the BPA.

The Titans have needs at C, LB, DT, DE, CB, WR and QB. Certainly some of these potential needs could be solved via FA (from within and externally), notably re-signing Haynesworth. Bulluck's contract is up in 2009, contracts for Vanden Bosch and an aging Kearse are up in 2009, they have some coverage softness in Finnegan and an aging Harper. WR has always been an issue, but that can be solved later in the draft or FA, but I would rather shore up the QB position first before I start spending 1st round picks on the position. Finally, Mawae's contract is up next year and should retire.

I was intrigued by Harvin's availability, but the Titans are a team that excel in trench warfare and that begins with the running game. They must find a replacement for All-Pro Kevin Mawae, whose contract is up after next year. The pick here is Max Unger, as he can play all five positions, but excels in the interior. He could easily get reps all over the line in the first year and step into the starting C position in 2010.

With the 31st pick the Arizona Cardinals select Louis Delmas, FS from Western Michigan.

Explanation: The Cardinals had poor secondary play last year and it showed in the Super Bowl. Outside of All-Pro Adrian Wilson nobody played that well. Last year's 1st round choice Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie started slow, but improved every game and played well for a rookie and hopefully he continues to get better. With Rodgers-Cromartie locking up one CB spot and Wilson at SS the Cardinals have two good players in the secondary, but also have a need at FS and the other CB spot. Antrel Rolle is not the answer at FS and may be moved back to CB if Delmas shows promise as a rookie.

Percy Harvin is the #1 prospect on my board.

Larry English - Would probably have to play OLB in their 3-4

Alphonso Smith - I think they are ok at CB right now.

EDIT: Also William Beatty could be their man.

There are only two positions I think Pittsburgh should be looking at here:

Beef up RT with Phil Loadholt (this may be high for him, but OL is their main priority this year).

Take a CB. D.J. Moore is the highest rated on my board, followed by Alphonso Smith.

I vote that they should take Moore. He is the highest rated player overall on my board right now. I'm actually surprised he hasn't been taken.

I think bah007's right on the money, but I might be a little higher on Smith than I am Moore at this time.

IMO, if you're looking at an upgrade at WR (remember they still have Sweed) I'd go with Darrius Heyward-Bey. He's presently the best WR on my board. Harvin just scares the crap out of me sorta like Ginn did.

With the 33rd pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select Clay Matthews, LB from USC.

Thoughts: Denver needs all the front 7 help they can get with switching to a 3-4 defense. They got an anchor at DE with Tyson Jackson in the 1st round. They need help at Safety so Chung was a very close selection here, but the upside of Matthews was too much for the Broncos to pass. This kid is shooting up the boards and will most likely be a last 1st/early 2nd round pick come draft time.

Clay is a great pass rushing LB, is smart, a good leader and will be able to help out on special teams as well. He's a versatile LB that they can move around in their 3-4 and even put him as a pass rushing DE occasionally when they show a 4-3 look. I can see New England and Miami sniffing him in the 1st round.

Well, I was hoping that Moreno would fall all the way into my lap in the second round. I know that the Chiefs have LJ, but his production has went down drastically last year and his character is going to be questioned. He is facing possible suspension from his off the field issues and everything, but I just don't value a particular RB at this spot. I was considering Shonne Green, but he really only produced for one year and will be 25 his rookie year. I would like to get a few extra years out of a RB, and I feel the value will be there later in the draft. Instead, I decided to fix the horrid pass-rush. 10 sacks? Really? If I had my way, Dorsey would not have been drafted last year. I was calling bust then. However, I do not like a single DT in the top 3 rounds this year. This is a very poor DT class and I think Raji has bust written all over him. I narrowed my list of DE's down to three:

Paul Kruger, DE, Utah
Robert Ayers, DE, Tennessee
Lawrence Sidbury, DE, Richmond

Ayers comes from a defensive-rich conference and has come on strong late. He has had a great post-season circuit. Kruger I feel was more of the "big fish in a little pond" type player. I think he is an NFL player, I'm just not nearly as high on him as most of yall. Sidbury is a physical presence and has some of the best physical measurements of all the DE's in this years draft. He has experience getting to the QB and he has also had a great post-season circuit thus far against the top competition in the draft (more or less). It came down to Ayers and Sidbury, but I'm going to select Lawrence Sidbury from Richmond. I feel that his long arms will help him keep distance between OT's and that he has the potential to be a special DE. Sidbury put up more sacks this season (11.5) than Ayers did in his career (9). The Chiefs have gone with a youth movement and have taken projects early with someone like Alberts last year. The raw, unteachable, physical skill set is there, and you just can't pass that up in the NFL.

It probably is a bit early, but he is really shooting up boards. They have shown a willingness to gamble with someone like Albert. He was taken about a round too early for being an LT (what game film?). They also do take a safer pick early. D. Johnson, Dorsey (hated that pick, but eh, he was the "safe" pick), and this year I went with Monroe early. Pass-rushers hold more value early than say RB's who are "a dime a dozen" in a sense. I still have 3-4 RB targets if this thing goes further.

Way to be building that team starting with the trenches. I love Monroe and Albert playing next to each other again. I know you don't like Dorsey but if he isn't a bust and then Sidbury develops... oooh boy! Chiefs are pretty much rebuilding their whole team and the OL and DL is the best place to start.

5-9 195. Some say height may be a problem with this guy but he brings alot of speed and ballhawking skills the Ravens always seem to find.

The Ravens are getting old at the CB position. Samari Rolle will be 33 next season, Chris McCalister 32, and even their top alternate Corey Ivy will be 32 next season. Smith can be their nickel this year and grow into a starting role.

I think the Jags could use a WR or a defensive pick. I am thinking Percy Harvin or Larry English or a safety like Moore or Johnson.

With the 42nd pick in the draft, the Buffalo Bills select:

Eric Wood, C, Louisville

This was a tough pick. The Bills need a new STARTER at center, but they also need a safety upgrade, and there are a couple of decent value safeties still on the board - while Wood might be a reach in some people's eyes. I've actually seen Wood rated ahead of Alex Mack on a couple of big boards (most recent I've seen that way was Mike Mayock's), so I'm going with the guy who fills their biggest remaining critical need.

Word out of SF is they want to become a power running team. What could be better than a 6'7" 386 lb OL.

With the 43 pick the SF picks G Herman Johnson, LSU

THE BUZZ: To say this guy is massive is an understatement. At 6-7 and more than 350 pounds, Johnson possess great feet for his dimensions. Johnson exhibits a low stance and is flexible in the hips and isnít simply a hulking offensive lineman; this guy is agile and can dip and bend. He has a huge wingspan and does a nice job keeping defensive linemen away from his body. He is strong at the point of attack and can anchor against even the strongest bull rushers. His strong, wide stance and powerful punch make him nearly impossible to get around in pass protection. He does a nice job breaking down in space and has the body control to hit and seal a moving target. Heís still a bit raw but has come a long way. We would like to see more leg drive from him through the block; he has a tendency to lean on people too much and does not consistently drive his legs through contact. He will lumber a bit downfield but is a force on screen passes. Johnson has a real chance to be something special; his size and athletic ability are unmatched at guard. He has unlimited potential in any power run scheme, and if put in the right situation, this guy could be scary.

An athletic, hard hitting safety who plays a lot bigger than his size is. He loves to hit and play an in-the-box style of game, but can also drop back into coverage and make plays. He's a good compliment to go next to Eugene Wilson as both give us athleticism that we've never had at the safety positions. This was an easy pick, there's no way he should of lasted this long but I won't complain.

I have been thinking lately that we should wait until the second round to get a DE. Look at this mock, Paul Kruger DE Utah, Robert Ayers DE Tennessee, Connor Barwin DE Cincinati, Cody Brown DE Connecticut are all still available in the second round at our pick. Is there that big of a a difference in E Brown and Barwin or Cody Brown? Kruger and Ayers seem more like ends we would be looking for than any of those guys. Plus Matt Shaughnessy could be available later if we wanted to trade down again.

So far
1.) E Brown DE Florisa ST
2.) Patrick Chung SS Oregon

Not that I dont like them but I would rather have taken Brandon Pettigrew TE or Jeremy Maclin, WR or LeSean McCoy, RB or James Laurinaitis, LB or Peria Jerry, DT or Max Unger, C in the first round and taken Kruger or Ayers in the second.

IMO we would get better production out of any combination that I listed over Brown and Chung.

Chung is a little stiff in the hips, I think he struggles in coverage plus he gambles, relies on angles lacks make-up speed. competitive adds toughness better sutied to SS than FS. Dominique Barber is a similar player already made the roster as a 6th rd. pick :specnatz:

Its tough drafting for the Texans because everyone wants something else.

I think Brown was a good first round pick, its just crazy when a good DE like Paul Kruger is available for us in the 2nd. I probably would have taken Sean Smith over Chung though.

I would be ecstatic if a player like Rey, Orakpo or Jenkins dropped to us in the first, and got Paul Kruger in the 2nd. Tack on walterfootball.com's 3rd and 4th round picks for us and I would be in heaven.

but some thought different like WesmanTexanfan I like this pick, if he is half as intense as his bro he'll be knockin the ball out of many hands.... Kastofsna a 6th rounder who's a good athlete with decent upside. pretty much all you can ask for in this round. or if your implying myself forget about timed speed he keeps the play in front reads then quick to react.

No explanation needed really, the Bears have had crappy to just not screwing it up play for a very very long time. Is Freeman a can't miss QB prospect? No but he is already #2 on the depth chart and he has yet to sign his contract.

In an ironic twist of fate, first round pick Jeremy Maclin will be reunited with a former teammate.

Tampa Bay was hoping that Josh Freeman would fall to their pick only to have him snatched up when he was one pick away.

With the #50 overall pick, the Tampa Bay Bucs select.....

Evander Hood - DT, Missouri

Hood has a quick first step for a DT and as he proved at the Senior Bowl practices, he is very skilled at hand fighting in the trenches and easily slips off one-on-one blocks. He also possesses the killer instinct and nonstop motor that can turn a good player into a great one.

He has powerful legs but doesn't use enough leverage at times. With some solid coaching, he can provide a solid push in the middle of the line for the Bucs.
