One week out from the draft, looming trades of Braylon Edwards and Anquan Boldin could be detrimental for all current mocks. Just for a change, surprise picks litter the top 10 of this mock. 1. Detroit – Matthew Stafford I really wanted the safer pick of Jason Smith here due to the track record of junior QBs. With a 0-16 season what do you have to lose? “$money$” Stafford backs up Culpepper for half the season. 2. St. Louis – Jason Smith Standard pick, Smith replace Orlando Pace. 3. Kansas City – Eugene Monroe Monroe is reunited with Brandon Albert to protect the Franchise QB. In my humble opinion, Aaron Curry isn’t worth #3 overall money in a 3-4 defense. 4. Seattle – B.J. Raji Sanchez is a possibility but I make a reach with Raji. He provides an immediate impact for Mora in the run defense. Curry should be the pick but Seattle has a lot of money already invested in LBs. 5. Cleveland – Michael Crabtree With a possible Edwards’ trade and Stallworth facing a prison sentence, the Browns select the biggest playmaker in the draft. 6. Cincinnati – Aaron Curry Value pick. Two LBs selected in the first round in consecutive years. 7. Oakland – Andre Smith No playmaker for Al here. Sugar tits protects Russell and paves the way for McFadden. 8. Jacksonville – Jeremy Maclin The Jags could use an OT but the best are off the board. Maclin bolsters the depleted WR roster and adds return ability. 9. Green Bay – Brian Orakpo Top pass rusher falls to the Capers defense. I personally like him better as a 4-3 DE. 10. San Francisco – Aaron Maybin Like Seattle the 49ers pass on Sanchez. They take the pass rusher with the best first step and a very high ceiling. 11. Buffalo – Robert Ayers The Bills select the best pure 4-3 DE. They look to fill the void of Peters at LT later. 12. Denver – Tyson Jackson Denver has lots of holes to fill in its defensive conversion. Jackson will play the 5 technique. 13. Washington – Mark Sanchez Sanchez’s free fall ends at the pocket book of Snyder. 14. New Orleans – Chris Wells Saints ignore defensive needs in the first round and add a physical dimension to their prolific offence. 15. Houston – Clay Matthews Yeah I know, no Malcolm Jenkins, sorry. Wish I was creative enough to make an original pick. I fear change. 16. San Diego – Michael Oher The Chargers just missed out on a tackle last year. They fill their quota this year. 17. New York – Knowshon Moreno Rex Ryan doesn’t have a talented QB so he’ll run the ball. Josh Freeman doesn’t belong in the first. 18. Denver – Rey Maualuga Rey will be a thumper in the run game, something Denver lacked last year. 19. Tampa Bay - Malcolm Jenkins Jenkins is a great value for the Bucs. He’s the epitome of a cover 2 corner. 20. Detroit – Eben Britton Tackle is a premium position in this league and the Lions select the best of the second tier of tackles. 21. Philadelphia – Brandon Pettigrew Eagles could select any number of offensive skill positions. They take the best of both worlds with Pettigrew’s blocking and pass catching ability. 22. Minnesota – Darius Butler Not an easy pick for the Vikings. Sydney Rice hasn’t produced and Rosencopter could use a TE threat like Jared Cook. Offensive tackle and the vacancy left by Matt Burke at center all need attention but above prevailing wisdom they go DB instead. 23. New England – Everette Brown Browns unlikely tumble this far down the draft concludes here. Alphonso Smith along with his football instincts will probably be the pick at #34. 24. Atlanta – Peria Jerry The Falcons tune-up their d-line with an explosive DT. 25. Miami – James Laurinaitis Cornerback is a strong possibility but the former Buckeye has Parcells written all over him. He has the best production of all the LBs in this draft. 26. Baltimore – Darrius Heyward-Bey Flacco’s arm + Heyward-Bey’s speed = Touchdown 27. Indianapolis – Evander Hood The Colts add one more ultra quick d-lineman to terrorize the AFC South. 28. Buffalo – William Beatty Tackles always go quick and the Bills have to fill Jason Peter’s shoes. 29. New York – Kenny Britt Bye bye Plaxico, hello Kenny Britt. 30. Tennessee – Perc y Harvin The Titans love head cases. Enter Percy Harvin. 31. Arizona – Donald Brown The Connecticut RB helps corral the pass happy Cardinals. 32. Pittsburgh – Eric Wood The Steelers need offensive line help and Wood is the mauler they covet. I know everybody’s tired of mocks and ready for the real deal but what do you think of my first mock?
