Post mock draft

from condraft.com

PICK #1 The Lions Pick:
Brady Quinn (QB, Notre Dame)
The Lions are in desperate need of a quarterback and Brady Quinn would be the perfect guy to rebuild with in Detroit.

PICK #2 The Cardinals Pick:
Joe Thomas (OT, Wisconsin)
How bad is the Cardinals O-Line? Think back to Edgerrin James’ gaudy stats in Indianapolis and look at what he’s doing now. Joe Thomas is an elite LT prospect with good technique, athleticism, and virtually no weaknesses.

PICK #3 The Raiders Pick:
Calvin Johnson (WR, Georgia Tech)
Calvin Johnson might actually be the front-runner for first overall pick with a freakish size-speed ratio to go along with incredible ball-skills and big-play ability. A good comparison might be T.O. without all the T.O. baggage. The Raiders don’t necessarily need a WR, and could look for a QB or help along the offensive line, but with Randy Moss and Joey Porter acting up, both could possibly be on the way out, and Calvin Johnson would be hard for Al Davis to pass up.

PICK #4 The Texans Pick:
Adrian Peterson (HB, Oklahoma)
After passing on Reggie Bush for Mario Williams last year the Texans have been lacking adequate running-back depth this season. In this projection, they probably wouldn’t pass on Adrian Peterson, who could be a workhorse back in any system in the NFL. The one glaring negative with Peterson is durability, and those concerns may cause him to drop lower than he should.

PICK #5 The Browns Pick:
Alan Branch (DT, Michigan)
If Adrian Peterson is available, it would be hard to envision the Browns passing on him to upgrade the HB position. In this projection, however, they go with Alan Branch, a versatile underclassman from Michigan who could probably fit in well in Romeo Crennel’s 3-4 defense at either DE or NT. Branch has been spectacular this season, including a couple of big plays in the Ohio State game, and has boosted his stock as much as any prospect in the draft.

PICK #6 The Buccaneers Pick:
Leon Hall (CB, Michigan)
The days of the dominating Tampa defense are over and its time to start looking for re-enforcements. Leon Hall is arguably the best CB prospect in the draft and has been steady throughout his career at Michigan.

PICK #7 The Packers Pick:
Marshawn Lynch (HB, California)
With Ahman Green a free agent and continuously battling injuries, it would be no surprise to see the Packers address running-back this year. Marshawn Lynch is Laurence-Maroney-like back with speed, hands, and an uncanny ability to slip through and elude tacklers. Lynch, and junior, has shined throughout his career at Cal, despite sharing the backfield with other quality players, and if he does return to school, he may be a heisman candidate.

PICK #8 The Redskins Pick:
Gaines Adams (DE, Clemson)
Gaines Adams is arguably the best defensive prospect in the draft, and this seasons ACC defensive player of the year has proven his NFL value throughout his career at Clemson. A pass-rushing demon, Adams has the knack for making the big sack or recovering the big fumble, and it would be surprising if he fell past here come draft day. The Redskins could also look for help at CB, but defensive line is also a need and Adams fits in perfectly.

PICK #9 The Steelers Pick:
Darrelle Revis (CB, Pittsburgh)
For years, the Steelers have been known for great linebackers and a solid defensive line. In the secondary, Troy Polamalu gets all the headlines, but the corners don’t seem to ever live up to the standards of a dominant defensive team. While the shutdown corner might be pretty much extinct in today’s offense-happy NFL, having good cover guys can really help out a defense. Darrelle Revis of Pitt is a junior, and should he declare, could be the first CB or maybe even DB taken. While Leon Hall and Daymeion Hughes are better known in draft circles, scouts are said to be most impressed with Revis, who has a fluid back-pedal, can be physical, and has the raw skills to potentially be in the class of the top CB’s in the game.

PICK #10 The Titans Pick:
Dwayne Jarrett (WR, USC)
To help out Vince Young, the Titans might want to look to add an elite WR, and Dwayne Jarrett has proven himself to be one of the finest college players ever at USC. Jarrett gets overlooked by Calvin Johnson and Ted Ginn, but should he declare, he’d be right in the top ten mix. His production at USC is unparalleled to any WR in the draft and there is really no reason for him to go back to school with plenty of school records and a national championship already under his belt.

PICK #11 The Falcons Pick:
LaRon Landry (S, Louisiana State)
The Falcons have a need at free safety and LaRon Landry is the most complete safety prospect in the draft. Landry has been a quality performer throughout his four-year career with LSU, and could potentially end up being a top ten pick.

PICK #12 The Vikings Pick:
Ted Ginn Jr (WR, Ohio State)
It is clear that the Vikings have a solid run defense and need help on offense. What they lack is a game-breaker, and Ted Ginn is THE playmaker in the draft. If he declares, there is a good chance he goes higher than this, but questions about catching passes over the middle may cause his stock to drop. At Ohio State, Ginn has been a human highlight reel and would immediately give the Vikings a spark they so desperately need.

PICK #13 The Rams Pick:
Michael Griffin (S, Texas)
The Rams problems have always been on defense, and with a need at safety, Michael Griffin fits in perfectly. Griffin, who really made a name for himself because of a great showing last year in the National Title game against USC, is one of the country’s best defensive backs. A ball-hawk who can cover and tackle, Griffin’s knack for blocking kicks will also make him a coveted prize on draft day.

PICK #14 The 49ers Pick:
Daymeion Hughes (CB, California)
Daymeion Hughes has put up a bunch of interceptions throughout his career at Cal, and the senior will look to be in the mid-first round mix come draft day. The 49ers have been a surprisingly formidable team this season, with a lot of credit to the defense, and adding a CB, their biggest need, would help an up-and-coming team.

PICK #15 The Eagles Pick:
Reggie Nelson (S, Florida)
Perhaps no prospect has benefited more from his seasons’ work than Florida’s Reggie Nelson. Nelson has shown good ball-skills, the ability to lay the wood, and solid tackling all year, improving his stock all the way up to the first round mix. The Eagles could look CB, and there is a possibility that Nelson could change positions, as he projects to be a beast anywhere in the secondary with his skill set.

PICK #16 The Dolphins Pick:
Levi Brown (OT, Penn State)
The Dolphins are surging at the right time again, and Levi Brown would help out one of the weaker units on the team. A solid starter throughout his career at Penn State, Brown has been a quality performer throughout his time at Happy Valley.

PICK #17 The Bills Pick:
Sam Baker (OT, USC)
After failing to address the tackle position last year, the Bills have suffered offensively because of it. Sam Baker is only a junior, but could come out after all his success at USC. Versatile and athletic, Baker projects as either an OG or OT, and in Buffalo he could potentially solidify the left takle position

PICK #18 The Jets Pick:
Quentin Moses (DE, Georgia)
Eric Mangini has to be considered a coach of the year candidate and the Jets are contending every week with a chance at a playoff spot. With a few more drafts, it would be no surprise to see Mangini build up a defense that is already performing well. In the Jets’ 3-4 Quentin Moses could potentially make the move to OLB as a pass-rushing missle off the edge in the mold of Kamerioni Wimbley and Shawne Merriman.

PICK #19 The Panthers Pick:
Patrick Willis (LB, Mississippi)
Dan Morgan has been solid when on the field, but his problem has been that he hasn’t been able to stay healthy. Adding a guy like Patrick Willis, who played his entire junior year with a broken hand, might be a good move for a Panthers team who could use at the very least, a little depth at linebacker

PICK #20 The Jaguars Pick:
Charles Johnson (DE, Georgia)
Everyone knows about Quentin Moses, but Georgia junior DE Charles Johnson might actually be the better pro prospect. If the stud pass-rusher decides to leave early, he will most likely find his name called in the first round and the Jaguars are a perfect fit. Still somewhat raw, Johnson could work into the rotation in Jacksonville early on, as inexperience is really the only negative holding him back

PICK #21 The Giants Pick:
Antoine Cason (CB, Arizona)
The Giants might want to make a move for a HB to help replace Tiki Barber and help out Brand Jacobs in the backfield, but in the is projection, there is no one worth picking here. Instead, they could opt for a CB, which has been a position of weakness recently in New York. Cason has good coverage skills and has been a play-maker, making a bunch of interceptions throughout his career for Mike Stoops at Arizona. Against Cal, a Cason interception returned for a touchdown completely obliterated all hopes for the Bears going to a BCS title.

PICK #22 The Bengals Pick:
Glenn Dorsey (DT, Louisiana State)
LSU junior DT Glenn Dorsey has been a rising stud defender this season and would at the very least give the Bengals another fresh big body in the rotation at DT. Dorsey has a non-stop motor that helps him get to the QB and swallow up runners in the backfield. In his first year as a starter, Dorsey has shown the type of explosiveness and production that has many thinking first round should he choose to declare.

PICK #23 The Patriots Pick:
LaMarr Woodley (DE, Michigan)
With aging LB’s in the 3-4 system, Michigan’s LaMarr Woodley would fit in well as a Willie-McGinest-type player for Bill Belichick’s defense. Woodley has been a pass-rushing terror for the wolverines, forcing fumbles and wreaking havoc throughout his career.

PICK #24 The Cowboys Pick:
Jake Long (OT, Michigan)
While the Cowboys have been pleasantly surprised by the rise of Tony Romo, his mobility is actually hiding the weaknesses along the O-Line that Drew Bledsoe’s lack of mobility made so obvious. RT is still a need and Jake Long, who could maybe play either LT or RT in the pro’s, would fit in perfectly for Bill Parcells.

PICK #25 The Patriots Pick:
Brian Leonard (FB, Rutgers)
Brian Leonard is not your typical full-back. When he works out at the combine or at the Rutgers pro-day, his stock will probably go up, as Leonard has better speed than people think. The senior leader can block, run, and catch extremely well and would help out any NFL backfield. In New England, he could serve as a potential replacement to Corey Dillion and make a 1-2 punch with Laurence Maroney, while also playing a little full-back and H-back. Expect Leonard’s stock to rise leading up to the draft.

PICK #26 The Chiefs Pick:
Quinn Pitcock (DT, Ohio State)
Probably the best run-stuffer in the draft, Quinn Pitcock has been stellar in his senior year with the Buckeyes. The Chiefs have needed help at DT ever since the Ryan Sims debacle, and Pitcock would fit in perfectly.

PICK #27 The Broncos Pick:
DeMarcus Tyler (DT, North Carolina State)
Denver could use possibly a young wide receiver or fresh bodies along the defense line who aren’t ex-Browns castoffs. DeMarcus “Tank” Tyler comes from what is becoming the D-lineman factory, North Carolina State. After seeing fellow teammates Mario Williams and John McCargo go in the first round last year, Tyler burst into the first round picture with his strong play this season. Junior DT DeMario Pressley is another guy with first round potential- what are they feeding these guys over there?

PICK #28 The Saints Pick:
Buster Davis (LB, Florida State)
Marques Colston out of Hofstra is early favorite for offensive rookie of the year, outshining his teammate, the immortal Reggie Bush. The Saints hit the jackpot in last year’s draft, and will try to do just as well this year. Buster Davis was not considered a first round pick until this season, when he showed early and often what an energetic, playmaking LB looks like. Davis can bring the lumber and has the strength and speed to be a first round pick.

PICK #29 The Ravens Pick:
Justin Blalock (OT, Texas)
The Ravens are a difficult team to gauge, but as a veteran team with seemingly no glaring weaknesses, it could also be beneficial to help out along the offensive line. Justin Blalock has been a versatile OG/OT prospect for Texas, helping pave the way for Vince Young and the Longhorns last year in the national championship. Versatile and big, Blalcok is in the first/second round mix right now with a chance to move up or down depending on workouts.

PICK #30 The Chargers Pick:
H.B. Blades (LB, Pittsburgh)
The Chargers have a need at ILB and H.B. Blades of Pittsburgh fits in well in that scheme. Blades has performed well throughout his career at Pitt, with incredible tackle production.

PICK #31 The Bears Pick:
Jeff Samardzija (WR, Notre Dame)
A Super Bowl run might be in the near future for the Bears, so it’s hard to predict where such a complete team would look in the draft. Jeff Samardzija, the well known, highlight-grab WR for Notre Dame, is one of the most intriguing prospects in the draft. On the football field, he holds the Notre Dame record for career TD receptions, and has great size, leaping ability, and hands, to go along with his nose for the end-zone. The main question with Samardzija, however, is not about his performance on the football field, but rather, his performance on the baseball field, where he could pursue a career as a pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. Can he play both NFL football and MLB baseball? Will he choose one over the other? When these questions are answered, a lot more will be known about his projected draft position- but athletically, he’s a first-rounder.

PICK #32 The Colts Pick:
Paul Posluszny (LB, Penn State)
Penn State’s Paul Posluszny does not have great strength, athleticism, or speed, but his instincts and football-smarts have helped him become the leading tackler in school history. Production, leadership, and character are three strengths that will ensure that his name is called on the first day. However, he might not go as high as everyone originally thought, as other options may leap-frog him in LB rankings.

Default Re: mock draft

I don't care for this draft. I don't feel Kubiak will go AP that high w/his system and AP's injury history. But, I could probally live with it as he is a very good RB.

My problem comes in the 2nd and 3rd rounds of this draft.

This is after just one quick looksee, but this is the list I see in the second round who are better than who we take.

JaMarcus Russell (QB, Louisiana State) - granted he goes a pick earlier, but dang it, if he is close to available when we are coming up...draft the freaking stud.

PICK #8 The Jets Pick:
Amobi Okoye (DT, Louisville)

PICK #9 The Steelers Pick:
Michael Bush (HB, Louisville)

PICK #12 The Vikings Pick:
Ben Grubbs (OG, Auburn)

PICK #13 The Rams Pick:
Rufus Alexander (LB, Oklahoma)

PICK #14 The 49ers Pick:
Marcus McCauley (CB, Fresno State)

PICK #15 The Eagles Pick:
Troy Smith (QB, Ohio State)

PICK #16 The Dolphins Pick:
Earl Everett (LB, Florida)

PICK #17 The Bills Pick:
Dwayne Bowe (WR, Louisiana State)

PICK #20 The Jaguars Pick:
Dan Connor (LB, Penn State)

PICK #21 The Giants Pick:
Ryan Harris (OT, Notre Dame)

PICK #32 The Buccaneers Pick:
Joe Staley (OT, Central Michigan)

I feel ANY of the above mentioned picks are better for our team than the UNLV CB.



I told myself after that pick that I would stop reading, but of course I couldn't, and then I find out we draft one of the absolute LEAST athletic OC's I've ever seen. What a joke for our system.


Irons, Mebane, Bennet (who will be an early second rounder after his combine) would all be a more logical choice for our team.

If the Texans want All Day, they better hope Cleveland doesn't pick ahead of them or that they are pressured by the Ohio fans to take Troy Smith.

I would love to draft Smith and go into Cleveland next year. Especially if Cleveland passes on him.

Most teams in recent history starting last year have not picked their national championship QB hero .

I can't find the sarcasm thing, so just think Ron Dayne.

I'm with ya Andre . Don't like the USC center at all.

Like yours a lot better YTF. People struggling this season are not goin to let the o-lineman get away. The RBs are average at best. Wrs are loaded....Just like 2001, the o-lineman are going to go early and often this year.

Gonna be real interesting with this scenario breaking and the have their pick of the big corner/FS prospects LB prospects & Micheal Bush on the board at the same time. What will the Texan's do ? Inquiring minds are still wondering. Both Beerlovers DTs are on the board when we come up to bat in the first and second.

and the Name that is absent from the top 100 sports fans ?

If his injury is truly a Lisfranc fracture, then his career is in jeopardy. This break is hard for any football player to come back from much less a RB. A RB from NE had this a few years back and it took him 2 years to get back on the field.

A service I use reports the following:

Kevin Jones, RB, DET
Lisfranc Fracture / Dislocation
According to several published reports not only is Lions' RB Kevin Jones out for Week 15 but he is out for the remainder of the season after suffering what is being described as a complete Lisfranc fracture and dislocation during Sunday's game. Jones got his foot caught in the turf in the fourth quarter and after laying on the ground for several minutes in tremendous pain he was helped off the field and carted to the locker room. The Lions' have yet to confirm the nature of Jones' injury but if the reports are accurate then he will likely undergo surgery to correct the problem and he will be out up to 6 months. At this point any injury to the Lisfranc joint would end his season, but a fracture/dislocation would certainly keep him from participating in the team's off-season conditioning program and all of the team's off-season mini camps.

Default Re: mock draft

Did not like this draft at all. For one with no OL, I don't care who the back is and I am not paying a back $20M+ in guarantee with an injury concern to play behind this current OL. That said I want to build Defense first. So give Branch in the 1st.

in the 2nd I would take any of the following before the guy they picked:
Justin Harrell (DT, Tennessee)
Amobi Okoye (DT, Louisville)
Michael Bush (HB, Louisville)
Ben Grubbs (OG, Auburn)
Rufus Alexander (LB, Oklahoma)
Marcus McCauley (CB, Fresno State)
Troy Smith (QB, Ohio State)
Earl Everett (LB, Florida)
Dan Connor (LB, Penn State)
David Harris (LB, Michigan)
Arron Sears (OT, Tennessee)
Steve Smith (WR, USC)
Joe Staley (OT, Central Michigan)

I like most of these guys and hope some slide into the 3rd. But since I am going to take one I am taking Amobi Okoye (DT, Louisville)

3rd round:
Kenny Irons (HB, Auburn) Why a RB now? Because I have him as a top 20 player and I now only have to pay him about $1M in guarantee money not $20M.

1) Branch, 2) Okoye (mistake on my part but still a stud) 3) Irons

I have said this in another post, my DL would be Weaver Okoye Branch Williams. That would be a super DL in 2 years time, it would surpass the Jacksonville line. My defense other than the line, Ryans and Robinson would still suck, so you have to hope we got a FA CB. I would then live with below average FS, because this line should cause QBs a lot of trouble.

Irons has the break away speed we do not have in a RB now. I am hoping the injured players return to the OL correct it's problems (Spencer back to OLT).

I still need a OC upgrade, QB?, OLB, FS. P, K?

Crazy idea I know, but to dream about a DL like this, oh and think how young it is...

QB-Plummer/Leftwich/Brennan
OLB-FA(Briggs)
FS-Draft someone in third round
P-Get the Baylor kid
K-Get anyone who can make a FG.
