This is a very loooooong post....beware. I compiled a full three-round mock for all 32 teams and an overview for each team. Most of the picks in this mock are based upon need for each team. (Yes, I know, I know....I have waaaay to much time on my hands...LOL.) I expect a lot of disagreement w/ many of these picks b/c there are a few surprises and a few big names that slip further than predicted. Before you criticize me too much, please review the draft overview (in the second post.) Look at all the picks for each team and ask yourself if you think each team would be happy w/ the draft picks I gave them....does it meet their needs? Does it make them a better team? If you consider these things, I think you can, at the very least, agree that it is a reasonable and possible assesment. Texans trade down to Jets #4 for 2nd round this year and 1st round next year. In the below scenario, I have the Titans taking VY. However, I feel that there is a very strong possibility that the Titans may take D?Brickashaw Ferguson. If this happens, I find it very hard to believe that the Texans would still pass on VY if he was available at the #4 spot. Round 1 1. Jets-Reggie Bush, HB -Perfect match for both and the whole reason why they traded up. 2. Saints-Matt Leinart, QB -Pretty much a given; Brooks days are over and this is their largest need. 3. Titans-Vince Young, QB -Titans elect to go w/ the young playmaker to groom behind Steve McNair. Also consider D'Brick. 4. Texans-Mario Williams, DE -The best DE in the draft will be the cornerstone of the Dline for years to come. Texans also need an OT but that position is deep in this draft and they can find a tackle in later rounds. 5. Packers-AJ Hawk, OLB -OLB is one of the team's greatest needs, they may even be looking for two during the draft. 6. Raiders-Jay Cutler, QB -Although many feel this is much too high, and there are still great talents on the board...pending a great workout, the Raiders elect to take the strong-armed QB to replace Collins. Nothing is a guarantee since the offensive-minded pass-happy Al Davis has, and always will, run the show. 7. 49ers-Haloti Ngata, DT -While WR is their greatest need, they also need a stud DT to replace the aging Bryant Young and cannot pass on Ngata. 8. Bills-D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT -The Bills are the first team to benefit from the deep draft of Olinemen as the best tackle drops into their lap; Ferguson is needed to replace Mike Gandy. 9. Lions-Mathias Kiwanuka, DE -With Cutler and Ferguson off the board, they need an end to replace Cory Redding and Kiwi fits the mold. 10. Cardinals-Winston Justice, OT -Fills a definite need. Also consider RB but elect to take one in later rounds. 11. Rams-Michael Huff, FS -In desperate need of help in the secondary, this fills the need as Huff can play S or CB 12. Browns-Manny Lawson, DE -Defensive minded Romeo Crennel takes Lawson to play OLB in their 3-4 defense. 13. Ravens-LenDale White, HB -Workhorse, smash-mouth runner that fits their style. However, if they feel confident in Jamaal Lewis, don?t be surprised to see OG Max Jean-Gilles here. 14. Eagles-Santonio Holmes, WR -Need a WR to replace TO and Holmes is the best available. Also consider DE but some will be available in later rounds. 15. Falcons-Jimmy Williams, FS -Consider DE, but cannot pass on this talented DB to provide much-needed help in secondary. He'll join former fellow VTech alums DeAngelo Hall and Vick. 16. Dolphins-Tambi Hali, DE -Defensive-minded Nick Saban cannot let Hali pass as he fills a glaring need. 17. Vikings-DeAngelo Williams, HB -The workhorse RB that they need. Also consider LB. 18. Cowboys-Sinorice Moss, WR -Provides them w/ the deep threat that the offense is looking for and WRs are hard to come by this year. 19. Chargers-Darnell Bing, FS -The safety that they need to replace Bhawoh Jue. 20. Chiefs-Tye Hill, CB -Will go a long way to help their weakest facet: defense. Consider WR but don't feel that any merit their 1st round pick. 21. Patriots-Chad Greenway, LB -Although they need help at the CB position, they can't pass on Greenway as linebackers are the mainstay of their defense. CB position is also relatively deep in this draft. 22. Broncos-Vernon Davis, TE -Luxury pick to upgrade the TE spot and give Plummer a reliable target. 23. Bucs-Jonathan Scott, OT -Fills their greatest need. 24. Bengals-Brodrick Bunkley, DT -Fills the hole in the middle of their Dline. 25. Giants-Bobby Carpenter, LB -Their lack of depth at LB was evident down the stretch in 2005. 26. Bears-Mercedes Lewis, TE -Gives their young QBs a reliable safety valve. 27. Panthers-Gabe Watson, DT -Kris Jenkins is good but has missed almost two entire seasons w/ injury and Brenston Buckner is aging. Consider TE but that is a deep area of the draft. 28. Jaguars-Ashton Youboty, CB -A desperate need for the Jags and Youboty is a top corner prospect. 29. Broncos-Marcus McNeil, OT -Need help at this position. Also consider DT. 30. Colts-Laurence Maroney, HB -The perfect replacement for Edge. 31. Seahawks-Ernie Sims, LB -Fast, athletic good tackler gives them a great starting trio. 32. Steelers-Antonio Cromartie, CB -Top corner prospect; a given if Taylor leaves via FA. Round 2 1. Texans-Daryn Colledge, OT 2. Saints-DeMeco Ryans, LB 3. Texans-Ko Simpson, FS 4. Packers-Max Jean-Gilles, OG 5. Raiders-Thomas Howard, LB 6. 49ers-Chad Jackson, WR 7. Titans-Abdul Hodge, LB 8. Lions-Eric Winston, OT 9. Cardinals-Leonard Pope, TE 10. Bills-Jesse Mahelona, DT 11. Browns-Rodrique Wright, DT 12. Ravens-Andre Whitworth, OT 13. Eagles-Daryl Tapp, DE 14. Rams-Dominique Byrd, TE 15. Falcons-Ryan O'Callaghan, OT 16. Vikings-D'Qwell Jackson, LB 17.

Steelers-Greg Eslinger, C Round 4 Texans-Joe Klopfenstein, TE Round 5 Texans-Mark Setterstrom, OG/C Round 6 Texans-Aaron Harris, LB Round 7 Texans-Taurean Henderson, HB Draft Overview (by team) Texans: Offense-With a deep draft on the offensive line, we got a solid RT in Daryn Colledge in the 2nd. He is a legitimate tackle and will definitely be an upgrade to our line. Speedy and athletic, he moves well, excels in the run game, is a great pass blocker, and has the nasty demeanor that you want in a lineman. Mark Setterstrom comes at great value in the 5th round. He projects as a LG, but also has experience at C. He could serve as Hodgdon's back-up which would mean that McKinney never has to play C again. Setterstrom also moves well and is a good fit for the zone-blocking scheme. WR Cory Rodgers is a huge upgrade over Corey Bradford and the Texans are lucky to get him. A playmaker WR w/ good hands, he also excels in returning kicks. Described as "a sick athlete, with the ability to take it to the house each and every time he touches the ball," he could wind up being a steal. If he polishes his game a little more, he definitely has the ability to become a legitimate #2 WR opposite AJ. TE Joe Klopfenstein is a big end with good speed and agility that fell to the 4th as a result of the deep class of TEs. He will be a big target in the red zone and key in Kubiak's offense. HB Taurean Henderson is just the type of back that Kubiak was hoping would fall to the 7th as a result of the depth at the position this year. He is a shifty, elusive runner but won't shy away from contact?great as a receiver out of the backfield. Most scouting reports project him to do well if he lands in a west-coast offense. Defense: With the Texans 1st round pick, we elected to take DE Mario Williams who is being labeled the second-coming of Julius Peppers. With the defense switching to the 4-3, we need a stud strong-side DE and "Super Mario" looks to step into that role from day one. With the 2nd round pick from the Jets (#35,) we were able to get an instant starter at FS in Ko Simpson. Simpson is a ball-hawking safety that makes plays in the running and passing game. He is also a ferocious hitter that will make receivers think twice about coming over the middle. In the 3rd round, CB Jonathan Joseph looks like he'll be an excellent #2 corner opposite DRob. In fact, while he may need a little more development b/c he is a raw talent, he posses many of DRob's qualities...including speed, agility, and a hard hitter who isn't afraid to support the run. In the 6th round, MLB Aaron Harris was available b/c of his lack of proto-typical NFL size. He is a very tough, passionate player and a tackling machine. Harris is the type of linebacker that flies from sideline to sideline making plays. Anyone doubting this pick should consider Zach Thomas as a good NFL comparison to Harris' abilities.
