    1. Rams
    Ndamukong Suh
    DT
    Nebraska
    Uncertainty at the quarterback position will force the Rams to consider Sam Bradford, but Suh is too talented to pass up.
    2. Lions
    Russell Okung
    OT
    Oklahoma St.
    The Lions desperately need a franchise-caliber offensive tackle to protect Matthew Stafford's blindside.
    3. Buccaneers
    Gerald McCoy*
    DT
    Oklahoma
    The Bucs haven't had a dominating interior player since Warren Sapp manned the middle.
    4. Redskins
    Trent Williams
    OT
    Oklahoma
    Chris Samuels' injury makes acquiring a top tackle a priority, and Williams' ability to play on either side makes him an intriguing prospect.
    5. Chiefs
    Derrick Morgan*
    DE/LB
    Georgia Tech
    A legitimate pass rusher on the edge would greatly improve a pass rush that ranked 31st in the league with just 22 sacks.
    6. Seahawks
    Carlos Dunlap*
    DE
    Florida
    Pete Carroll's defensive background will compel him to grab an explosive edge rusher to lead the Seahawks' resurgence.
    7. Browns
    Anthony Davis*
    OT
    Rutgers
    Mike Holmgren immediately looks to upgrade the team's offense by nabbing an athletic tackle to pair with Pro Bowler Joe Thomas.
    8. Raiders
    Jason Pierre-Paul*
    DE
    South Fla.
    Al Davis' infatuation with speed and athleticism makes Pierre-Paul the ideal choice for the Silver and Black.
    9. Bills
    Bruce Campbell*
    OT
    Maryland
    The Bills are in desperate need of a franchise QB, but their offensive line woes would make it tough for any signal-caller to survive or thrive in the pocket.
    10. Jaguars
    Brian Price*
    DT
    UCLA
    Jack Del Rio needs a bed rock in the middle to help his defense return to the ranks of the elite.
    11. Broncos
    Rolando McClain*
    LB
    Alabama
    A rugged interior defender in the center of the Broncos' 3-4 would allow D.J. Williams to act as a playmaker.
    12. Dolphins
    Sergio Kindle
    LB
    Texas
    Joey Porter and Jason Taylor are at the end of their careers, so finding an athletic edge rusher is paramount.
    13. 49ers
    Eric Berry
    S
    Tennessee
    The 49ers' emerging defense needs a ball hawk like Berry in the middle of the field to ascend to the next level.
    14. Seahawks
    Charles Brown
    OT
    USC
    A QB like Jimmy Clausen or Sam Bradford would be intriguing choices here, but Seattle's injuries along the O-line will makes Pete Carroll's former player a safe pick.
    15. Giants
    Brandon Spikes
    LB
    Florida
    The loss of Antonio Pierce robbed the Giants of a leader in the middle, and contributed to the defense's woeful finish.
    16. 49ers
    Joe Haden*
    CB
    Florida
    Mike Singletary fortifies the defense by adding another playmaker to the secondary.
    17. Titans
    Everson Griffen*
    DE
    USC
    The Titans must replace aging pieces on the edge (Javon Kearse and Kyle Vanden Bosch), and Griffen flashes the potential to be a double-digit sack artist.
    18. Steelers
    Patrick Robinson
    CB
    Florida St.
    The Steelers' suspect secondary repeatedly cost them down the stretch, so Mike Tomlin shores up one side of the field.
    19. Falcons
    Navorro Bowman*
    LB
    Penn St.
    Mike Smith needs a playmaker at the weakside linebacker spot, and Bowman's athleticism fits the bill.
    20. Texans
    Earl Thomas*
    S
    Texas
    The former Longhorn would give the Texans' secondary a serious jolt with his speed and range in the middle.

    21. Bengals
    Dez Bryant*
    WR
    Oklahoma St.
    Marvin Lewis would love to add a talent like Bryant to his offense to alleviate the pressure on Carson Palmer and Chad Ochocinco.
    22. Patriots
    Ricky Sapp
    LB
    Clemson
    Sapp's presence should bolster a pass rush that was virtually non-existent this season.
    23. Packers
    Jahvid Best*
    RB
    California
    The best runner in the draft falls into Packers' lap, and his talent is too enticing for Mike McCarthy to bypass despite a pressing need at tackle.
    24. Eagles
    Taylor Mays
    S
    USC
    Andy Reid underestimated the impact of losing Brian Dawkins in the back end, so he nabs Mays to become the new anchor of the secondary.
    25. Ravens
    Arrelious Benn*
    WR
    Illinois
    The Ravens' passing game needs a playmaker to help Joe Flacco continue his development as the franchise quarterback.
    26. Cardinals
    Sam Bradford
    QB
    Oklahoma
    Ken Whisenhunt opts for Bradford over Matt Leinart as Kurt Warner's eventual replacement.
    27. Cowboys
    Bryan Bulaga*
    OT
    Iowa
    Flozell Adams' declining skills make it necessary for Jerry Jones to find a replacement at left tackle.
    28. Chargers
    C.J. Spiller
    RB
    Clemson
    The Chargers officially announce the end of the L.T era with the arrival of the ultra-explosive Spiller.
    29. Jets
    Damian Williams*
    WR
    USC
    Rex Ryan hopes that Williams quickly renews his chemistry with Mark Sanchez to give the Jets a lethal passing combination.
    30. Vikings
    Terrence Cody
    DT
    Alabama
    The Vikings add Cody to their defensive line rotation as a possible replacement for 37-year-old Pat Williams.
    31. Saints
    Selvish Capers
    OT
    West Virginia
    The Saints would love to upgrade their linebacker corps with a talented playmaker, but Capers fills a pressing need along the offensive line.
    32. Colts
    Jared Odrick
    DT
    Penn State
    The hardworking Odrick is an ideal fit as an interior player in the Colts' scheme, and his presence will help shore up the team's woes against the run.

    Berry falling to 13?

    No QB in the first round?

    Best the first RB taken?

    Bryant falling to 21?

    Color me surprised.

    I wonder if the people at NFL.com actually paid money for this crapfest. This is by far the worst mock I have seen yet.

    Joe Haden 16---HAAAAHAAAA!!

    Eric Berry 13--No way!!!

    The Broncos pass on Dez Bryant??

    ALL the mocks I've seen on this board are far superior to this hack job.

    I think a few of us regular mockers should sell our mocks to nfl.com.

    This mock is probably just as (in)accurate as anything else out there.

    There are obviously some questions as to where he has people going, but it's early and the mocks out now compared to the ones in late April, much less to how the draft actually goes, are just as (in)accurate. I don't think he's off base in any of his need based evaluations, so it's fine, IMO.
