Default Re: pbat488's First Round and Texans Mock


1. St. Louis (1-15) - Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
When given the opportunity to draft a franchise QB, you take it. Previously: Bradford
2. Detroit (2-14) - Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
Lions like Backus, so go with BPA. Previously: Okung
3. Tampa Bay (3-13) - Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
Buc's get Warren Sapp 2.0. Previously: Suh
4. Washington (4-12) - Russell Okung, OT, Okie Lite
Washington takes best tackle available to protect McNabb. Previously: T. Williams
5. Kansas City (4-12) - Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
Chiefs go with positional value, take 2nd best tackle in draft. Previously: Bulaga
6. Seattle (5-11) - Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
Seattle would prefer to trade down, but realize Bulaga's potential. Previously: McCoy
7. Cleveland (5-11) - Eric Berry, FS, Tennessee
Cleveland runs to the podium for this one. No brainer. Previously: Berry
8. Oakland (5-11) - Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
JPP's pure physical gifts awe and amaze the Dead One. Previously: Pierre-Paul
9. Buffalo (6-10) - Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
Toughest pick to call, they can go in so many different directions. New regime equals new QB. Previously: Clausen
10. Jacksonville (7-9) - Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
Essential to get to QB in a division with Manning and Schaub. Previously: Morgan
11. Denver (7-9) - Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama
High IQ football player solidifies Denver's front seven. Previously: McClain
12. Miami (7-9) - Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee
Miami needs a NT for it's 3-4. Almost as easy as Cleveland's pick! Previously: D. Williams
13. San Francisco (8-8) - Earl Thomas, FS, Texas
With Thomas at back end of 49ers D, they are looking as favorites in the West. Previously: Thomas
14. Seattle (8-8) - CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson
Seattle still trying to replace Shaun Alexander. Previously: B. Campbell
15. New York Giants (8-8) - Sean Witherspoon, LB, Mizzou
Instantly plugs into and upgrades Giant's D. Previously: Spiller
16. Tennessee (8-8) - Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB, Texas
Can play with hand down or possibly become LB for a rebuilding Tennessee D. Previously: Kindle
17. San Francisco (8-8) - Maurkice Pouncey, OG/C, Florida
Solidifies OL for years to come. Player Singletary will love. Previously: Pouncey
18. Pittsburgh (9-7) - Joe Haden, CB, Florida
Steelers are ecstatic Haden falls to them; instantly becomes a starter. Previously: Haden
19. Atlanta (9-7) - Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan
Graham fits perfectly into Falcons' defensive scheme. Previously: Graham
20. Houston (9-7) - Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
Nearly identical replacement to DR, hopefully becomes starter across from Quin/Reeves. Previously: McCourty
21. Cincinnati (10-6) - Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho
Cincy gets a mauler with tremendous potential. Previously: Iupati
22. New England (10-6) - Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
Algae Crumpler? New England is desperate for a solid TE. Previously: Gresham
23. Green Bay (11-5) - Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
Davis immediately steps into GB's porous OL to protect Rodgers. Previously: Davis
24. Philadelphia (11-5) - Taylor Mays, S, USC
With Sims in the mix, Iggles now look to replace Brian Dawkins. Previously: Weatherspoon
25. Baltimore (9-7) - Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers
Baltimore's CBs were exposed last year, McCourty's physicality is loved by coaching staff. Previously: Mays
26. Arizona (10-6) - Dez Bryant, WR, Okie Lite
Dez lasted this long due to immaturity issues, value is too good for Cardinals to pass. Previously: Wilson
27. Dallas (11-5) - Rodger Saffold, OT, Indiana
After releasing Adams and having other players they were targeting off the board, Dallas goes for the monstrous tackle. Previously: Saffold
28. San Diego (13-3) - Ryan Mathews, RB, Fresno State
In dire need of RB help, Mathews is a great fit into San Diego's offense. Previously: Mathews
29. New York Jets (9-7) - Jared Odrick, DE/DT, Penn State
Jets D-Line is getting up there in years, draft versatile player for the future. Previously: Bryant
30. Minnesota (12-4) - Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama
Vikings, disappointed Odrick is gone, take best corner available in Jackson. Previously: Odrick
31. Indianapolis (14-2) - Jerry Hughes, DE, TCU
Freeney and Mathis' eventual successor. Previously: Hughes
32. New Orleans (13-3) - Daryl Washington, OLB, TCU
Washington is exactly what the Saints need as a replacement for Fujita and an already weak LB corps. Previously: Washington

Disclaimer: Even though these are my picks, I think there are going to be multitudes of trades this year involving future picks for ones this year. I'm guessing at least eight different 1st round trades this year.

With this first rounder, I've also done two Texans drafts that I foresee and would love to happen...

1. (20): Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
2. (51): Jon Asamoah, OG, Illinois
3. (81): Ben Tate, RB, Auburn
4. (118): Robert Johnson, FS, Utah
5. (150): Corey Peters, DT, Kentucky
6. (187): Charles Scott, RB, LSU
6. (197): Nolan Carroll, CB, Maryland
7. (227): Adrian Martinez, OG, Colorado State


1. (20): Maurkice Pouncey, OG/C, Florida
2. (51): Jerome Murphy, CB, South Florida
3. (81): Myron Lewis, FS, Vanderbilt
4. (118): Anthony Dixon, RB, Mississippi State
5. (150): Jeff Owens, DT, Georgia
6. (187): Nolan Carroll, CB, Maryland
6. (197): Trindon Holliday, WR/KR, LSU
7. (227): Alphonso Smith, RB, Kentucky

As always, all comments are appreciated so I can further fine-tune my mocking skills. Any questions about my picks please ask and I'll answer.
