I wasted a lot of time doing this mock, so I better get some replies ... ROUND 1 1.San Francisco 49ers - Aaron Rodgers QB Cal After the combine, the 49ers supposedly guaranteed Rodgers that if they kept the first overall pick, he'd be their selection. That may be a ploy, but I'll go along with it. 2.Miami Dolphins - Ronnie Brown RB Auburn This pick is made with the assumption that the Fins won't make a move for a RB prior to the draft. Brown did a lot to raise his stock at the combine, and I believe he'd be a good fit for the Fins at #2. 3.Cleveland Browns - Alex Smith QB Utah After cutting Jeff Garcia and allowing Kelly Holcomb to become a free agent, it has become painfully obvious that if the Browns are going to make any noise, they need a QB. That being said, there is a possibility that they may pick up a FA, or possibly draft one in a later round. If they don't go QB, look for them to take a CB. 4.Chicago Bears - Derrick Johnson LB Texas After the signing of Mushin Muhammad, I believe the Bears will aim for a defensive playmaker here, and DJ certainly fits the bill. DJ will team with Urlacher and Lance Briggs to form one of the most fierce LB groups in football. 5.Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Mike Williams WR USC Rumor has it that the Bucs have told Williams that if he's available at 5, he'll be chosen. This is the same thing the Skins told K2 before taking Sean Taylor, but I'll take Gruden's word for it and have them take Williams here. 6. Tennessee Titans - Braylon Edwards WR Michigan The Titans have plenty of holes to fill, and I believe they'll start the rebuilding process by taking arguably the best WR in the draft, as far as measurables go. 7.Minnesota Vikings - Adam "Pac-Man" Jones CB West Virginia The Vikings have been rumored to want to move Brian Williams to FS and Corey Chavous over to SS. By taking Pac-Man, arguably the best corner in the draft, this transition will be a much easier one. 8. Arizona Cardinals - Antrel Rolle CB Miami (FL) Chances are, the Cards are going to trade for a RB and they already signed a vet QB in Kurt Warner, so I look for them to draft a replacement for recently traded Duane Starks. 9.Washington Redskins - Erasmus James DE Wisconsin The Redskins have solid DEs, but none of them are good pass rushers. Erasmus would definitely alleviate that problem. Another option here may be Troy Williamson, if they choose to go offensive with their 1st rounder. 10. Detroit Lions - Marcus Spears DE LSU The Lions have a good RE in James Hall, but the LE position is definitely upgradeable. Spears should start from day 1 and may also be able to play DT in their system if need be. 11.Dallas Cowboys - Shawne Merriman OLB/DE Maryland With the Boys switching to a 3-4 for 2005, they need edge rushers in order to make their new scheme work. Merriman is the perfect fit for them. 12.San Diego Chargers - Alex Barron OT FSU The Charger O-Line is a solid, cohesive unit overall, but Roman Oben is 32 and Shane Olivea is unproven. Behind them, they have little depth, so they should be happy to see Barron available at 12. Other possibilities here are WR and DE. 13.Houston Texans - Troy Williamson WR South Carolina With the probable departure of Corey Bradford, the Texans will need a deep threat that will compliment AJ, and IMO the Texans could do worse than selecting a Gamecock in the first for a second year in a row. 14. Carolina Panthers - Cedric Benson RB Texas The Panthers offense is built around a strong power running style and Benson is the perfect fit for their system. Stephen Davis and DeShaun Foster are frequently injured and Benson has proven his reliability over his years at UT. 15.Kansas City Cheifs - Carlos Rogers CB Auburn KC is trying the best they can to get a decent defense, and this pick may change if they are able to sign Samari Rolle, but IMO even if they do, they should still look to urgrade this secondary, which constantly got beat through the air last year. 16.New Orleans Saints - Thomas Davis S/OLB Georgia The Saints dream is to have him Thomas Davis available at 16. Luckily for them, their dreams come true. Regardless of whether they choose to put him at OLB or SS, he'll be an instant upgrade over who's there now. 17.Cincinatti Bengals - Travis Johnson DT FSU The Bengals have a huge hole at DT and Travis Johnson is the BPA. They may be scared away due to his past character issues, but I think Marvin will force him to mature quickly and make him a better player and a better man. 18. Minnesota Vikings - Dan Cody DE/OLB Oklahoma Minnesota is solid in their front 7, but they could stand to add another pass rushing DE to team with Kenechi Udeze. Cody also has the added versatility to be able to switch to OLB in case they need him in that role. 19.St. Louis Rams - Jammal Brown OT Oklahoma St. Louis' O-Line this past season wasn't bad, but with both Kyle Turley's and Orlando Pace's future with the team in jeopardy, Brown is the smart pick here. He projects to more of a RT in the NFL, but in the event that Pace is traded, he may be able to play LT until a suitable replacement is found. 20.Dallas Cowboys - Brodney Pool FS Oklahoma By utilizing their second first rounder to select this ballhawk, fellow OU alum Roy Williams will be able to move to his more natural position of SS. 21. Jacksonville Jaguars - David Pollack DE Georgia With the addition of Reggie Heyward the Jags have shored up one side of their dominant D-Line; now it's time to solidify the other side. Pollack will join Henderson, Heyward, and Stroud to make probably the best D-Line in the NFL. It will be horrible to see this twice a year. 22.Baltimore Ravens - Justin Miller CB Clemson The Ravens two big needs coming into the offseason were WR and OG. The signing of Derrick Mason has taken care of one need, and IMO 22 is too high for any of the guards in this draft. Therefore, the Ravens will look to Miller to replace Gary Baxter, who signed with Cleveland. 23.Seattle Seahawks - Kevin Burnett OLB Tennessee After the release of Anthony Simmons and with Chad Brown's aging, it is looking increasingly likely that the 'Hawks will take a LB in the first. I look for Burnett to have an impressive pro day, and his stock will rise into the first round. 24. Green Bay Packers - Justin Tuck DE Notre Dame The Packers must replace DE Aaron Kampman, who is better suited for a back-up role. They do that by drafting Justin Tuck, who will wreak havoc on opposing QBs along with KGB. 25.Denver Broncos - Shaun Cody DT/DE USC After losing Reggie Hayward, the Broncos' D-Line is looking painfully average. A player like Cody, who will be able to play either DT or DE in the pros, will be a good start to the reconstruction of their defensive front. 26.New York Jets - Fabian Washington CB Nebraska Between now and the draft, Washington's stock is going to soar. Once thought of as a 3rd rounder, his 40 time alone will probably land him in the late first, and the Jets look to be a good fit. Look for Heath Miller to be chosen here is Denver matches their offer sheet on Putzier. 27.Atlanta Falcons - Khalif Barnes OT Washington ATL's O-Line is decent, certainly upgradable. Khalif is the strong, agile, physical type that the Falcons covet, and he should be an instant starter. 28.San Diego Chargers - Mark Clayton WR Oklahoma The Chargers don't have a deep threat that take pressure off of Antonio Gates, and they're ecstatic to have Clayton still on the board when they pick. 29.Inianapolis Colts - Anttaj Hawthorne DT Wisconsin Indy's DTs are solid, but not spectaclar. Hawthorne will give the Colts an even better pass rush than they already have. 30.Pittsburgh Steelers - Heath Miller TE Virginia Pitt recently cut starter Jay Riemersma and their remaining TEs are average at best. Miller has Todd Heap potential and is also a decent blocker. This pick gives Roethlisberger another weapon. 31.Philadelphia Eagles - Roddy White WR UAB T.O. is great, but Freddie Mitchell may be out, and Todd Pinkston is upgradeable. White's speed will compliment T.O. well. 32.New England Patriots - David Baas G/C Michigan After losing Joe Andruzzi to free agency, the Pats are quick to snatch up the best G in the draft.
