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 hes 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 dont 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 wouldnt 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 Crennels 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 dont seem to ever live up to the standards of a dominant defensive team. While the shutdown corner might be pretty much extinct in todays 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 CBs 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, hed 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 countrys best defensive backs. A ball-hawk who can cover and tackle, Griffins 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 Floridas 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 hasnt 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 LBs in the 3-4 system, Michigans LaMarr Woodley would fit in well as a Willie-McGinest-type player for Bill Belichicks 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 Bledsoes lack of mobility made so obvious. RT is still a need and Jake Long, who could maybe play either LT or RT in the pros, 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 Leonards 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 arent 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 years 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 its 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, hes a first-rounder. PICK #32 The Colts Pick: Paul Posluszny (LB, Penn State) Penn States 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.
