If Kiwi gets to the Bucs expect a trade including Simeon Rice or something similar.

I like your mock but I'm not sure Tapp is 1st round talent, other than that I like it.

yeah, good mock but the bengals don't need a 3-4 olb, they are set there, and tapp is too small to play DE in the 3-4

in your scenario i'd recommend one of the TE's there (byrd, pope, lewis, fasano), i personally have them taking NT Gabe Watson, but you have him off the board already, if you want you could have DT Claude Wroten go to the Broncos, and then Watson to Bengals instead.

Yea Defintly. I am a Buc Fan and if we don't trade rice we r defintly getting an o-line men like Marcus McNeil. Also, I don't think Tapp nor Lawson will be picked so high. Overall it is a great draft. I would give it a A-

i know tapp isn't first round talent, that's what makes it a reach for a pick. the bengals need a DE, and not wanting to risk missing him in the 2nd, they pull the trigger

The Bengals need a DT more than they do a DE, and Darryll Tapp isn't even the 4th or 5th best DE in this draft, if they do want him they should take him with their 2nd or they'll be laughed at by ESPN, NFLN, and every sports show for making that reach til August.

I think they will take White. After the Rose Bowl they commented on how much they were impressed by his performance and how hard it'd be to pass him up at 5. If LenDale's stock doesn't make him top 5 after the combine then I think the Packers will trade down and try and get him at a later pick.

Pretty good mock, I've thought DeAngelo could go to the Packers so it's interesting to see a mock where this happens. If the Packers do make this move and leave both Mario Williams and A.J. Hawk on the board, I agree that the Raiders would most likely take Mario, but I am almost positive the 49ers would take whoever is remaining between Mario/Hawk rather than taking Vernon Davis (most of the fans on their website agreed that they'd take either of them if they somehow fall).
I don't see the Eagles taking DeMeco Ryans, I have seen that pick in a couple mocks but DeMeco is very undersized for a LB and although he has some good athleticism and skills I still don't think he goes this high.
I think the Broncos would definitely go DE over DT, most of their better DLinemen are bigger guys that could play DT, so I think they will go with a more athletic pass rusher for DE, and I expect them to address that with one of their 1st round picks, maybe even by trading the #22 to the Jets for John Abraham or else drafting the best one available there.
I really don't see Marcus McNeill going over Eric Winston. Winston is very good and can play LT or almost any other OLine spot in the NFL, while McNeill is more of a career RT and likely won't ever play LT.
Other than that I can see all the rest of these picks happening.

here's my analysis of each pick

analysis:

1: Houston Texas - Reggie Bush, RB...Dominick Davis is a good back no doubt, but the backfield of Davis and Bush presents a lot of problems for the defense. Go OL in the 2nd round.
2: New Orleans Saints - Matt Leinart, QB...Should start immediately for a team that's struggling to find an identity. Will become the instant "face of the franchise."
3: Tennessee Titans - Vince Young, QB...Big project at QB. Should sit a year or two to learn a complicated Norm Chow offense. He's been Steve McNair's heir-apparent for some time now.
4: New York Jets - D'Brickashaw Ferguson, T...An elite tackle who's dominant despite still being a little rough around the edges. Needs work in his run-blocking, but that'll progress over the years as he gets bigger and stronger. The upside on him is amazing.
5: Green Bay Packers - DeAngelo Williams, RB...Could go defense as well with Mario Williams and A.J. Hawk on the board, but the Pack loses Ahman Green to free agency, and need a guy to help out Aaron Rodgers in his progression. Williams catches the ball just as well as he runs, which will be a huge weapon in Mike McCarthy's offense.
6: Oakland Raiders - Mario Williams, DE...Derrick Burgess was the best offseason pickup for the Raidas, but Al Davis loves speed, and Williams has that. He's a physical freak. BPA for sure.
7: San Francisco 49ers - Vernon Davis, TE...Another "freak" physically. Combines great size and great speed for his position. Not a polished TE, but with some coaching will be elite.
8: Buffalo Bills - A.J. Hawk, LB...They don't need LB as much as say NT or OL, but with Hawk still on the board, the Bills can't pass up the draft's finest linebacker prospect. Ngata is also a very likely choice, as is Winston Justice.
9: Detroit Lions - Jay Cutler, QB...Millen saves his job for now by "correcting" the Joey Harrington deal. Unfortunately, Cutler won't be fully ready for a few years, and if forced to start, will play poorly, possibly costing Millen his job. It's a pick that could end up benefiting the franchise long after Millen is gone.
10: Arizona Cardinals - Michael Huff, S...Best defensive player in the draft in my opinion. Combine Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu in one player and you have Huff. Can play everywhere on the defense and is always around the ball. Very dangerous.
11: St. Louis Rams - Haloti Ngata, DT...While not the biggest need, Ngata is a rare talent and can help plug up the middle of the d-line for years to come. Unfortunately he has a tendency to be a bit lazy, so we'll see how he turns out.
12: Cleveland Browns - Chad Greenway, LB...Very instinctive player. Fits the Romeo Crennell "attitude" for a linebacker.
13: Baltimore Ravens - Tamba Hali, DE...Not an urgent need, but still a very good and high energy player to throw into the DL rotation. Not an immediate impact, but will be great in a year or two.
14: Philadelphia Eagles - Demeco Ryans, LB...The defense wasn't as good as the NFC-C and Super Bowl teams. Ryans will start and be a star in Philly with the intensity he brings.
15: Atlanta Falcons - Winston Justice, T...Played RT at USC blocking for a lefty in Matt Leinart. Will do the same for Mike Vick in Atlanta. Instant starter.
16: Miami Dolphins - Jimmy Williams, DB...With Cutler, Huff and Greenway off the board, Nick Saban looks to solidify the weak secondary with a guy who can play anywhere. Has great instincts and is a very tough and physical player, something Nick Saban looks for in his players.
17: Minnesota Vikings - Lendale White, RB...Some call this a steal, but White isn't as great as the hype he's received. Still, a big back who can power his way through a defense. Does have some Ron Dayne in him, in that he'll dance when he shouldn't.
18: Dallas Cowboys - Santonio Holmes, WR...Provides a deep threat to counter Keyshawn Johnson and Jason Witten. Will be used a lot on play-action plays.
19: San Diego Chargers - Ko Simpson, S...The weakest part of the defense is the secondary. A safety is needed pronto.
20: Kansas City Chiefs - Broderick Bunkley, DT...Fits well for any defensive line rotation, especially one that needs as much help as KC's. Herm Edwards gets things right.
21: New England Patirots - Manny Lawson, DE/LB...Not a big need, but still an incredible talent that adds depth and a ferocity to a defense that seems to have lost its touch.
22: Denver Broncos (f/Washington) - Gabe Watson, DT...A player that unfortunately has the same problems as Haloti Ngata in that he's a bit lazy. Great talent though.
23: Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Mathias Kiwanuka, DE...Thoughts are that Simeon Rice may not be around for too much longer. Even if he stays, Kiwanuka is a great bookend to Rice. Very similar players.
24: Cincinnati Bengals - Darryl Tapp, DE...The first major "reach" of the draft. Tapp is not a first-rounder by the perceived overall draft board, but Cincy needs a DE badly and makes the move. Would've gladly taken Kiwanuka, but the Bucs snatch him out of their hands.
25: New York Giants - Bobby Carpenter, LB...DT is a big need, but Carpenter is the kind of energy player a New York team could use. Will be a fan favorite instantly, as well as a difference-maker.
26: Chicago Bears - Leonard Pope, TE...The best TE in the draft not named Vernon Davis, Pope is a production-first player who can start immediately and help out both the vertical and underneath game for Grossman and co.
27: Carolina Panthers - Marcus McNeill, T...Despite Carolina's success, their o-line was one of their weak points, especially in the running game. McNeill is a big upgrade and will simply maul opposing d-linemen. A steal.
28: Jacksonville Jaguars - Ashton Youboty, CB...Physical CB who can cover well, although will get beat on the deep ball. Not a perfect player, which is why he's being drafted in the latter stages of the first round and not the top 10.
29: Denver Broncos - Marcedes Lewis, TE...After a somewhat disappointing season and a poor week at the Senior Bowl, Marcedes Lewis' stock has dropped to a 2nd round pick. Denver feels otherwise and drafts the big man here to be the next Shannon Sharpe.
30: Indianapolis Colts - Laurence Maroney, RB...Looks like Edgerrin James is gone. I doubt the Colts have as much faith in Dominic Rhodes as they've let us believe, so they'll take a guy who can make an impact immediately in Laurence Maroney. Will have to work on his "pro tools" more; receiving, blocking, etc.
31: Pittsburgh Steelers - Max Jean-Gilles, G...Jean-Gilles is a big man who can move a lot of people with ease. Not the biggest need for Pittsburgh, but the kind of rookie who can start on a championship-potential team and not miss a beat.
32: Seattle Seahawks - Chad Jackson, WR...The Champs take a big deep threat here in Chad Jackson. Jackson will feed off the play-action to Shaun Alexander. The kind of guy who could be a darkhorse for Rookie of the Year.
