Although an incredible talent, the Oakland Raiders would be pretty dumb to take Calvin Johnson. They already have Randy Moss and Jerry Porter, but they don't have a QB of the future. We can use Detroit as an example of why you don't invest so much at a position where you are already wealthy.

There is also that old saying, you don't pass up the chance at a franchise QB if you don't already have one. The Raiders don't have a franchise QB, so it is likely that they take Russell or Quinn.

What I'm also interested to find out is what some teams think about their current QBs. Using that saying from above, I wonder if Tampa, Minnesota and Houston think they have their franchise QBs? If they do, then we have a great shot of landing whoever Oakland doesn't take.

Branch and Adams are starting to appear like they have a great chance of being drafted by us. Here's a question though who do the Texans draft if Peterson is gone and the 6,7, and 8 has Anderson, Adams, and Branch still available. Do the Texans draft Branch? Three DL in a row?

As far the vomit comment could you elaborate. It's a reasonable draft, there is nothing absurd in it at all. The Raiders may trade for Leftwich.

I think there's a good chance that either Quinn or Russell will go at #8. Oakland will most likely take Calvin Johnson, but if they take either one then you are right. The Lions could take one, but I doubt it. Cleveland is also a possibility but I think they will opt for Peterson. Tampa might not even take one. There's no way that the Cardinals or Redskins take one and highly, highly unlikely that Minnesota does. So realistically, if either one slips out of the top 4, which is definitely a possibility, then said QB would likely fall to 8 with the absence of a trade. And with players like Calvin Johnson, Adrian Peterson and Joe Thomas all realistic top 4 picks, you count discount the possibility of either Brady Quinn or JaMarcus Russell falling to #8 or even #9.

I don't expect Moss or Porter to be in Oakland next year. Especially not Porter. I also expect the Raiders to pursue Byron Leftwich, Mike Vick, or Matt Schaub in the offseason. Don't forget that the Raiders passed on Leinart last year and Al Davis has never drafted a 1st round QB. Most Raiders fans that I've talked to are totally happy seeing Calvin Johnson as their pick, and most often bring up valid arguments against QB's when they are the pick in mocks

If Peterson and both QBs are already gone I could see them drafting Branch. I think there would be a big chance that they would try and trade down in that situation but we know that you can't on getting anyone to trade with you. Heck they could go with Adams or Anderson if they are there. That would be the start of a very nice, young front 7 with Williams, Anderson/Adams, Demeco Ryans.

Another option they would have would be LaRon Landry/Reggie Nelson, or even Levi Brown.

I don't think they'd draft Branch. I truly don't think they would based off of the fact that they also have Jason Babin on that defensive line. They've been drafting DL for three years straight, I made a mistake previously. They also signed Anthony Weaver recently. So yes they are heavier as far as their spending on DE than DT, but Anthony Maddox is a capable player.

They need a LT and a FS much more than another defensive linemen.

I'd have to agree, I'd be very surprised if Russell fell that far. Otherwise, thats a pretty decent mock for your first one. Although, I really hope that is not how the actual draft unfolds. I will be very dissapointed if Quinn, Adams, Branch or Anderson are all gone when we pick. Levi Brown is good, but I still think its somewhat of a reach...better than Ginn I suppose.

i personally think Levi brown is a reach unless he has an amazing combine i am still not convinvced he is our franchise left tackle like some people on the boards here say

Good points. Seems like Landry, Nelson or Brown would all be more likely picks there if they couldn't trade down. My bet would be on Landry, depending on the combine of course.

For some reason I just cant see Tampa picking Brady Quinn. Didn't they just sign Chris Simms to a new 2 year deal?

I think Tampa needs a WR and defense the most. If Calvin Johnson is not there when they pick they should probably go defense.

Remember this is my first ever mock draft so just try not to be too harsh. I welcome criticism though.

It's a fairly reasonable draft. But I just don't see the Bucs drafting QB unless Gruden is gone. Gruden's a major Simms fan, who they just resigned for a price not worth it if he's a backup. Plus they have another young guy in Gradowski. They've got bigger holes to fill, especially WR considering Galloway's aging, Clayton's missing in action, and there's no one else. I'd imagine the Raiders drafting Russell because frankly, Aaron Brooks and Andrew Walter aren't exactly appetizing options at QB. Makes me happy about our situation even. I think Texans will stick with Carr and look to upgrade that rotating RB situation or upgrade their D.

Yea, it seems like a reasonable mock, especially considering it's your first. The only major grumble I have with it is Hughes going so high, especially before Leon Hall. It seems like you have a lot of corners going sooner than I would expect, but it really isn't too bad.

Hall is the 1st corner taken. Hughes is the third.

My bad, I was looking for him, and I just skipped right over him. Either way, I still think it's high for Hughes. Other than that, it's a reasonable mock(though I'd be surprised if more than 7 picks were right)

Yes! I hope you're right.

After #9, I don't know who will go where. I'm just hoping Ryan Kalil, Paul Posluszny, or Drew Stanton are available when we pick in the 2nd round.

But this could all change tomorrow. Free agency. Combines. Teams trading up or down. Who knows what will happen?

they will most likely dump moss and porter, needing a WR. They drafted a QB last year who they are still very high on. They just need to build talent around him on the offense.

As far as Brown, i don't see him going to us that high. Yeah it would be nice because we need an LT, but he's not pick 9 talent.

texasPHINSfan
02-01-2007, 11:16 PM
i don't think the Raiders are going to take a QB because history has shown they haven't taken QBs in the first (save for Marinovich, and look how that turned out.) Al Davis isn't big on QB in the first, and i have no reason to expect different this year.

whats more they drafted Walter last year and despite his poor rookie season, he did show flashes of brilliance and they figure if they get him a decent supporting cast, they can build around him. I happen to agree. i see them picking Johnson, as you projected

I would hate to see the Bills get Okoye. I think he could be the player that people look at a few years from now like they do with Shawn Merriman. Brown would be a solid pick for Miami and I can definitely see that. If qb's start to fall, though, the Dolphins might trade up.

Sarcasm?...I hope so. This is a good mock, but being that i still havent givin up on Alabi, I dont really like the Brown pick. Give Alabi a chance and if he's not cut out for it, hes not cut out for it. The "Rising Star" comment has really gotten to me i think. Next years draft already has a couple good LT's, so i'd like to see Alabi get the nod this time around. I would take Ted Ginn or Gaines Adams/Alan Branch. Nice first mock though, i like how you have Abiamiri goin mid first, pretty ballsy.:lol: I think you could be right, he had an excellent senior bowl.

Yep, and all reports are that he looked like he was in excellent shape so I expect him to have a terrific combine.

You're probably right. But if Oakland and Detroit both go QB and QB. You know Cleveland needs a running back. And AZ does NOT need another WR.

That leaves TB. They can't pick both Johnson and Thomas. So it is possible that at least one of them falls out of the Top 5. Possible. Not Probable. But possible.

Keep this in mind... What would you have said if I told you Reggie Bush was going to slip to New Orleans?

So Arizona would take Joe Thomas, and Tampa would take Calvin Johnson. It seems all but impossible for even one of them to fall.
