    1. Oak............AP RB.................... Why? Al hates QB's in one and he always does it his way. I was convinced of changing this slot from JR to AP by Terry Robiske. AL has taken only one QB in round one. He can get a QB in two. He cant find AP type in two.


    2. Det............Joe Thomas LT. Martz did not get a HC job so he is going to convince Millen to get smart and take the new Orlando Pace for this offense.


    3.Clev.............Quinn QB.....................why? because they need him badly and RC and Weis connection is too strong. RC trusts Weis more than he should. This move could get him fired.


    4.TB...............JR QB..............why? because Gruden will never let a QB with that kinda gun get away even though he covets Okoye and Kiffin covets Carriker.....................


    5.AZ..............CJ WR.............they need a OL more than anything so a trade down here makes too much sense.....CJ and the DE make this slot hot as shiyt ..................historically slot six is where most GM's start to think trade................DE or DT make this a very valuable slot and this is plan B for the Cards............. CJ is too good to pass here............ and they could easily turn around and trade Boldin or Fitz to get Levi Brown or another OL in this first round..............


    6.Wash............Alan Branch DT Why? they were 27th against the run and Joe Salevea is likely going to miss 07 with an injury again DE is a big plan B possibility.............this was my toughest pick in round one because cerrato is a ticking bomb


    7.Minn.............DE Anderson...................they need a pass rusher as they are horrible against the pass and EJames has busted and Udeze is a clone of Anthony Weaver............good run stuffer who has no moves. WR is plan B

    8.Houston............Levi Brown LT...............finally they make a smart selection..............many think reach..........but no one makes them better unless AP falls to them


    9.Mia................Okoye DT.............why? they need one with their DL older than any other DL in the league and they are now fully entrenched to a 3-4 with the resigning of Dom Capers...............great pick that allows them to dump KCarters contract.


    10.Atl................Landry S.................why? Milloy sucks ass............ask any dirty bird.


    11.SF.................Carrriker DE Why? He fits their biggest need and he fits their scheme...............he is the perfect bookend to Manny Lawson for Mike Nolan who is all about his front seven.


    12.Buff................Lynch RB ..............why? Willis has one yr left on a deal and he has made it clear no one wants to shuffle out of Buffalo more then him...............since both DT are gone and this is their real need area................ and Carriker is also gone.............its time to replace Willis and use him as trade bait to the Jets...........they have their first and two two's


    13.Rams................Adams DE................why? they are desparate for a DT but no one has the grade here............they could reach for Harrell or Tyler here but I think they could draft IBruce replacement since they will loose KCurtis too. Adams represents too much value.


    14.Car.............LB Willis..............Why? Dan Morgan has had 8 concussions and is a close to the end of his deal? any other questions?


    15.Pitts.............Pouluszny OLB..............why? He is just a football player and Joey Porter is on the wrong side of thirty and his deal is also about up..............he is a local boy as well and Mike Tomlin is a total D HC.......Steelers also could go OT is Levi fell to them..................other possibility is Mike Bush here to be the new Bettis.

    16. GB.............Bush RB Why? A reach ? maybe but the Steelers love this cat too...............They have no RB left in GB because Green is an UFA and they dumped Davenport and Gado...............they want Lynch but he is already in Buffalo.

    17.Jags..............Nelson S...............fits a need since Deon grant is an UFA and DD is coming off a serious knee injury for the second straight yr............

    18.Bengals..............Johnson DE.............replaces Justin Smith and gives them three bulldogs as DE........Moss cant be a Bengal given his history............................Pollack's injury mandates this pick.

    19.Titans............Moss DE...........a reach but they are hoping for a new Kearse. Other possibilities here are Bowe or Revis or CHouston they can go so many ways they will let the board come to them


    20.Giants..............Hall CB ..............why? take a look at their roster and tell me why not? If a RB slips.............they could go there(tiki factor). LB is likely plan B if there guy is not there.


    21.Denver..................Revis CB................Why? Death of DW mandates it................they have terrible depth at CB.


    22. Dal..............Griffin S why? look at any film of RW covering SMoss any yr..............that is why.


    23.KC..............Ugoh OT/G why? 3/5 of the OL is now retired.............they love his athletic upside for either OG or OT.


    24.NE..................Bowe WR..................why? fits a need and is great value here....................


    25.Jets............Houston CB.............why? they have huge needs at DT/DE and OLB and CB and RB................no one merits the slot...........this is where the draft falls off................Dark horse selection is Sears OT. Mangin could also go LB cause Vilma is a liability in a 3-4


    26.Philly...............QMoses DE................why? they see too much value with him and they have lost Burgess two yrs ago and never replaced him.............. and likely will let Kearse go after the draft given his number and injury history.............this helps letting him go easier.............they have JThomas and Darren Howard...............as their only true DE's................


    27. NO..............Ross CB/S why? see any Fred Thomas film.............also they have Roman Harper's ACL to worry about.


    28.NE................Leonard RB/FB..............perfect Pat.............totally versatile and he will replace Dillons touches next yr after he is done.....Faulk is alos aging and the Pats use him huge............they need another back................CD is 33 yrs old now. Maroney is Mr outside..............Leonard is great between the tackles and is a great fit for their pass game with Faulk. Pats could go OL or WR again..........no CB because I have them tagging Asante..............


    29.Balt................Sears OT/G.............why? Pashos is a FA and Ogden is living on rep...........its time to get a new stud. Any other OL is plan B here.


    30.SD................Ginn WR..............why? Keenan is 38 and is done and they have very little talent out wide...........they need him on ST as well. OG is plan B if they let Diehlman walk....................


    31.Chicago..............Miller TE...............Why? They could take a WR here because there is value in that position............but no team outside of NO needs a TE more than Chicago.........and Miller is the only TE worthy of a day selection. Plan C is an OLB or S like Alexander to replace Briggs or Merriweather to replace the oft injured Brown


    32. Indy............BDavis LB.............no draftee fits a scheme better..........my bet is Polian steals money from everywhere to tag Freeny and cuts June loose and replaces him with a clone in Davis. Davis is a tampa two only LB.

    This is an interesting mock but odd. Some guys are reaches and some guys you have sliding like Timmons.

    Post Super Bowl mock 3.5 days before the Super Bowl? Interesting...

    Interesting take on things, I don't agree with several of the picks in there (esp. Calvin Johnson to the Cards, that is the one team I don't see looking at him at all and then Brian Leonard being anywhere near the 1st round, he may be their type of player but I seriously doubt he even sniffs the 1st day much less the 1st round. He is more of a HB that played FB and is at best a low 3rd round caliber HB, his skills as a FB aren't anything to write home about so that won't crank up his draft stock). I also don't see us taking Levi Brown, for the record the 49ers run a 3-4 so I wouldn't consider Manny Lawson a bookend there as he's an OLB, but Carriker would be an option for them, I don't see the Bills taking Lynch or the Packers taking Bush, and a few others, but at this point no one can really say for sure and this may end up being a more accurate mock than some of the experts like Kiper.

    oh ok, gotcha, thought you meant Super Bowl. Kiper has tremendous misses in all his mocks, I'd turn to you for a mock draft before I listen to his all the way up to April 28th.

    i tried to match needs............but the key to this draft is Oak Hou and buff..............they will set the tone.............Houston could easily go CB or S but there is a huge drop off after thomas and Brown..............they have to get better upfront................Houston could go tons of ways but there is no way AP makes it to you this low.

    lol russell is such a horrible fit in gruden's offense. almost as bad of a fit as okoye in miami's defense. the guy's a 3-tech, he's no DE, and if he was, we already have matt roth. pretty bad mock.

    Calvin Johnson to the Cardinals? That's horrible. That's like the Colts drafting Calvin Johnson.

    Not gonna happen.

    Colts draft Wayne and Clark in subsequent yrs...........drafting him allows them to trade into one for an OL they need later buy trading Boldin or Fitz..............makes a ton of sense.

    Funny response.............I was in Mobile all week..............and Monte Kiffin told me three things............he said if a QB slipped there would be no way Gruden would pass on either...........he also said that Carriker and Okoye could play in either a 3-4 and 4-3...........he said that Carriker is so versatile he could play Sapp's under DT spot and Okoye is a natural for it............HE said Dom Capers would turn Okoye into the best 3-4 DE in the league if Mia ever got him because their DE are 4-3 converts...........you know very little about the draft son ....................

    Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Why not just trade down and draft an O-lineman yourself and pick up some extra picks in the process. Why would you mess up the chemistry that Leinart and his recievers have formed ? Arizona already has three good recievers. Why would you take the chance of someone wanting to trade a player that they just drafted. What if the team that drafts Levi Brown, already has two good recievers ?

    I will go on record and say, "there is no way the Arizona Cardinals draft Calvin Johnson, even if he is on the board."

    I am gonna agree that there is no way the Cards draft CJ, Boldin & Fitz are amazing and already have a good chemistry with Leinart. The only way they pick up CJ is in a trade situation with another team and if Thomas is off the board and they feel like they can trade down and still get a player that they want.

    nope, gruden won't draft russell. makes no sense. gruden wants his guys that fit his system. bruce gradkowski fits his system. there is a world of difference between gradkowski and russell.

    okoye COULD play in a 3-4, but he's such a better fit for a tampa 2 defense it's amazing. carriker is no DT. he COULD play it, but that doesn't mean you'll draft him to play the spot, unless you're an *****. i mean, warren sapp COULD play tight end, but you're not going to draft for that, are ya?

    with our huge need at NT and matt roth taking over for kevin carter one day, okoye makes no sense. not that i would be completely against the pick, because he's absurdly talented regardless. but i know quite a bit more. i remember your epic 8-team trade scenario before last year's draft.

    won't even bother addressing the absurdity of the cards drafting calvin johnson. mainly because there's 0% chance the bucs let him pass.

    that point was made in the mock...........everyone glossed over it..............it also saves them huge cap dollars. Minn likely being the trading partner...............
