kastofsna's Semi-Final Mock
1 - Houston Texans - Reggie Bush, RB, USC...BPA. Contract issues will be sorted out after he is drafted.
2 - New Orleans Saints - Mario Williams, DE, NC State...BPA. Grant and Allen are on the roster, but Grant will be moved inside and Allen will play opposite of Williams. NO's defense will start to look like Chicago's pretty soon.
3 - Tennessee Titans - Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt...Rated by many teams as the #1 QB in this draft. Somewhat of a cross between Leinart and Young, pleases both ownership and coaching staff.
4 - New York Jets - Matt Leinart, QB, USC...One of the loudest cheers you'll ever hear from Jets fans at the draft. They won't take Ferguson over Leinart, end of discussion.
5 - Green Bay Packers - D'Brickashaw Ferguson, T, Virginia...AJ Hawk is a huge possiblity, and they definitely need him, but Ferguson is definitely BPA here.
6 - San Francisco 49ers - AJ Hawk, LB, Ohio State...Losing Andre Carter and Julian Peterson on defense in one offseason is tough. Hawk is an excellent choice here.
7 - Oakland Raiders - Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland...Tough choice between Davis and Huff, but Al Davis goes for the freak factor on offense here to help out Andrew Walter in the future. QB ISN'T AN OPTION.
8 - Buffalo Bills - Brodrick Bunkley, DT, FSU...Bunkley is a better pick over Ngata, as Bunkley is a true 3-tech for the 4-3. Huff is a possibility.
9 - Detroit Lions - Michael Huff, S, Texas...Matt Millen finally addresses defense and takes the best player on that side of the ball in the draft.
10 - Arizona Cardinals - Ernie Sims, LB, FSU...Young seems like the obvious fit here, but the Cards reportedly LOVE Sims, a LOT.
11 - St. Louis Rams - Vince Young, QB, Texas...This is a BPA situation. And Scott Linehan likes big mobile QB's, a la Daunte Culpepper.
12 - Cleveland Browns - Kamerion Wimbley, DE, FSU...The Browns have loved this guy for a while.
13 - Baltimore Ravens - Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon...The Ravens luck out considerbly here. They love Ngata.
14 - Philadelphia Eagles - Winston Justice, T, USC...Again, a case of a team being madly in love with a player.
15 - Denver Broncos - Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio State...Despite the Chad Jackson hype, teams still feel Holmes is the best player in the draft. Denver will make the right choice (or not).
16 - Miami Dolphins - Manny Lawson, DE, NC State...The next Jason Taylor. He was voted Defensive MVP by his teammates, not Mario Williams. Scored a 30 on the wonderlic. 6'5, 4.4
17 - Minnesota Vikings - Chad Greenway, LB, Iowa...Lots of money invested in the secondary and up front on defense, but not much in the middle of the d-unit. Greenway brings that John Randle-intensity.
18 - Dallas Cowboys - Donte Whitner, S, Ohio State...Missing from Dallas' secondary is a roving safety who can make plays in and outside of the box. Whitner is the man.
19 - San Diego Chargers - Tye Hill, CB, Clemson...Considered by most to be the best "pure" corner in the draft, Hill falls a tad because of his small stature.
20 - Kansas City Chiefs - Chad Jackson, WR, Florida...Pretty much a one trick pony. Go deep and catch the ball. Runs very sloppy routes. Will need work, but the talent is definitely there.
21 - New England Patriots - Deangelo Williams, RB, Memphis...A top 10 talent who falls due to lack of need. New England drafts him and he runs for 1300 yards his rookie season.
22 - San Francisco 49ers - Richard Marshall, CB, Fresno State...They risked it taking Hawk and hoping a WR would be here, but instead they go BPA on defense taking Marshall.
23 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Bobby Carpenter, LB, Ohio State...Derrick Brooks won't be around forever, and Gruden loves the sons of former players.
24 - Cincinnati Bengals - Jason Allen, DB, Tennessee...The secondary is one of Cincy's weakest corps, despite their playmaking abilities. Allen can play several positions.
25 - New York Giants - Antonio Cromartie, CB, FSU...Despite the Sam Madison signing, a young CB is needed, and Cromartie has all the talent in the world to be a top 10 player. Steal of the first round?
26 - Chicago Bears - Marcedes Lewis, TE, UCLA...Looks like he's moved back up into the 1st round, and Chicago needs a TE to give Rex Grossman or Brian Griese another target.
27 - Carolina Panthers - Jimmy Williams, CB, Virginia Tech...A guy who's considered a tweener with a bad attitude don't usually get drafted high. Williams is no exception. His drop is predictable and Carolina takes advantage of this top 10 talent.
28 - Jacksonville Jaguars - Jonathan Joseph, CB, South Carolina...This year's Pacman Jones.
29 - New York Jets - Nick Mangold, C, Ohio State...They lost Kevin Mawae to free agency, and after drafting the best QB in the draft, they follow that up with the best center in the draft.
30 - Indianapolis Colts - Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota...Should be drafted higher, but reports of being a "guy who doesn't shut up" from various teams causes a bit of a slide, but not much. Indy needs a replacement for Edge immediately, but Maroney isn't as good of a blocker as all and the results will be noticed.
31 - Seattle Seahawks - Ashton Youboty, CB, Ohio State...The best of the remaining DB's here, Seattle adds to their young secondary with this skilled, but somewhat undisciplined, CB.
32 - Pittsburgh Steelers - Lendale White, RB, Usc...Hard to imagine the Steelers passing up on White here to fill their need at RB. The first round begins and ends with a USC RB being drafted.

I disagree with the Packers taking D brick, but who knows and I dont think the Titans will take Cutler.
I really am afraid of the contract Reggie Bush is going to want, afterall he says, "I want to be the number 1 pick." While Vince Young says, "I want to play for the Houston Texans."
