Mock Draft

[Round 1]


Lions: Andre Smith-Offensive Tackle-Alabama

Analysis: I think that this is a major reach and I donít think Smith is the best Tackle in the class by any means. Smithís footwork is horrendous and his ability to speed rushers is lacking. Smith is still a good player and due to name recognition will go higher than he qualifies for. With that said Smith is far better to protect a Quarterback than Jeff Backus.


Rams: Michael Crabtree-Wide Receiver-Texas Tech

Analysis: Do they need a Left tackle? Yes. The bottom line is that Crabtree is just too good to pass up. Torry holt is falling out of favor in St. Louis, Drew Bennett canít stay on the field so Crabtree fills a need and is the best player on the board, SLAM DUNK.


Chiefs: Brian Orakpo-Defensive End-Texas

Analysis: Some people see Orakpo as an Outside Linebacker in a 3-4, I donít see it. I think he is strictly a 4-3 defensive end who does have great ability to rush the passer. He is a workout warrior who will benefit from the combine. Plays strong and sheds blocks fairly wel.


Seahawks: Jason Smith-Offensive Tackle-Baylor

Analysis: Walter Jones is getting older and more injury prone so they need to address Offensive Tackle and Offensive Line as a whole. Jason Smith is my top rated Tackle in this draft due to his amazing footwork and strength. Smith plays fast and has ability to get to the second level.



Browns: Aaron Curry-Linebacker-Wake Forest

Analysis: Aaron Curry is a total value here and the Browns can use him both inside and outside. Curry plays with fire and has amazing ability. Good coverage ability and good strength to take on blockers and get to the ball-carrier.


Bengals: Knowshon Moreno-Running Back-Georgia

Analysis: I donít consider myself a smart man but I do think that counting on Cedric Benson is a moronic move. Knowshon Moreno is the complete NFL Running Back as he is a solid pass catcher, is not afraid to block, and is magic with the ball in his hands. Having a Running Back of this caliber will take pressure off of Carson Palmer.


Raiders: Eugene Monroe-Offensive Tackle-Virginia

Analysis: Kwame Harris is the worst starting Left tackle in football and I say that will confidence. They have a lot of money invested in Jamarcus Russell so they better start protecting him. Monroe has a strong punch that gives him the initial advantage on a defender. He is also an effective run-blocker which should fair well for Darren McFadden.


Jaguars: Jeremy Maclin-Wide Receiver-Missouri

Analysis: The Jaguars will never make it until they get a guy who can catch the ball and make plays. They overpaid for Jerry Porter and he is a free-agent bust. Maclin will help in the return game and is a big play receiver as well. The Jaguars offense lacks an identity and Maclin can start to give them one.



Packers: BJ Raji-Nose Tackle-Boston College

Analysis: The Packers are making the switch to a 3-4 defense and they need a big guy to clog the middle and eat up blockers, Raji fits the bill. Raji is the best pure Nose Tackle in the draft and it makes perfect sense for the Packers who missed big-time in 2006 on Justin Harrell.



49ers: Matthew Stafford-Quarterback-Georgia

Analysis: I donít think that the 49ers are coming into the draft with Quarterback as their main priority but when Stafford falls to them here they jump all over him. There is no question that Stafford has an NFL ready arm and can make all the throws. I question his toughness and ability to win a big game however;


Bills: Everette Brown-Defensive End-Florida State

Analysis: Everette Brown has great speed and is a good pass rusher but some label him as one dimensional. He needs work against the run but is a good value here at #11. He will benefit from playing opposite of Aaron Schobal and on the same line as Aaron Schobal.


Broncos: Chris Wells-Running Back-Ohio State

Analysis: I am not sold on Mike Pittman, Ryan Torian, or Peyton Hillis as a feature back and if Tatum Bell was a cat he would have used all nine lives. Chris Wells is a big, physical back who has proven to be a homerun hitter. He is a little soft for my liking so I think he needs to get tougher but there is no question that this guy is an every down NFL back. He will be the best Broncos Running Back since Terrell Davis.


Redskins: Michael Oher-Offensive Tackle-Mississippi

Analysis: The Redskins have really had injury issues along their entire offensive line. Jon Jansen spends more time on the IR than on the field, Chris Samuels was put on IR last season so it is safe to say that a solid Offensive Tackle who can play either right or left tackle would be a major need. Oher is strong and plays well with his power. Good coaching can help Oher with some on the inconsistency issues he currently faces. There is no doubt in my mind that Oher could turn out to be the best Offensive linemen drafted.

Jasper Brinkley as a 7th rounder? I'm not a draft guru, but that seems WAY low for such a quality ILB.

RealDriscoll
01-28-2009, 01:29 PM
I am with you about Jasper. The problem is that he has many red flags that include legal history, attitude problems, and injury concerns. I think Jasper is a guy that will truely fall in April. I like the kid so I hope he gets drafted but we shall see. I admit his skill should put him in Round 4.

ChambersWI, Thanks man. I just received some tape on Virginia vs Maryland so I am going to have a full report on Clint Sintim, Antonio Appleby, Kevin Ogletree, Eugene Monroe, Dane Rudolph, Edwin Williams, Scott Burley, Dan Gronkowski, John Phillips, Darrius-Heyward Bey, Kevin Barnes, Jeremy Navarre, David Phillistin, Trey Covington, Moise Fokou etc.

I have a draft database that I set up from my home. I am trying to get my hands on as many tapes as I can.

some one should tell him the chargers traded their 3rd rd this year for last years and will not be on the 3rd rd.

RealDriscoll
01-28-2009, 01:33 PM
I think the Dolphins will acquire more picks before draft day as I could see them moving John Beck and Samson Satele.

I also expect them to make some cuts to free up some cap space which could include Ernest Wilford($1.5 mill), Reggie Torbor ($2.5 mill), and possibly Vonnie Holliday ($3.5 mill). Jason Allen's days of being a Dolphin could see the end as well.


I don't know about your meat and patatoes idea my man. We did that last year and I think locking up Carey and Jason Brown via free agency solidifies our line. We defiantly need some depth at Offensive Tackle but Center and Guard position should be filled.

There is no questions that a pass rushing Outside Linebacker, Safety, and Cornerback are our most pressing needs. We only have one starter from 2008 left in our secondary, Will Allen. We need to upgrade at Free Safety over Renaldo Hill.

RealDriscoll
01-28-2009, 01:34 PM
Oh I wasn't aware. What did the Chargers trade their Round 3 pick for?

TheBow305
01-28-2009, 01:40 PM
If you replaced Marks with Luigs in the 2nd, that Dolphins off-season would be AMAZING! Although I'm not all that thrilled about passing on Brian Cushing AND Sean Smith in favor of Larry English. If that was the way the rest of our draft played out though, I wouldn't be that upset about it. :)

Great effort man! Thanks!

yeah but your dealing in hypotheticals. whats the odds of us getting jason brown? we need o lineman badly. perhaps everything right of jake needs some sort of attention. not saying we need to draft 4 o lineman. but we cant just accept the current situation. like your tyson quote says ''we had a plan till the ravens defense walked up the interior of our line and punched us in the face''. if by draft time the trifecta isnt 100% on smileys return, donald thomas or sateles status we should address o line and do it heavily.

RealDriscoll
01-28-2009, 02:07 PM
The odds of us getting Jason Brown are great if we want him. He is priority #4 here in Baltimore behind Terrell Suggs, Ray Lewis, and Bart Scott. We are in terrific cap space with $28 million in cap room. Everything on these draft boards in terms of mocks are based off hypotheticals. If our front office wants Parcells, he is ours

ChambersWI
01-28-2009, 02:20 PM
A lot of interesting picks, some I don't agree with but I can understand why you have players going where they are going.

Only one I don't agree with is the Rams taking Crabtree. With Torry Holt still being pretty good, the emergence of Donnie Avery as a rookie, Dane Looker being an underrated WR, and the potention of Keenan Burton and Derrick Stanley, there is no reason to draft a WR early. They don't even need to go OT, they could use Aaron Curry; the perfect fit for Spanoulo's defense.

Other than that, I can't argue much about the draft.

RealDriscoll
01-28-2009, 02:21 PM
I will defend the Larry English pick by saying if the Dolphins could have any player in this draft besides Aaron Curry, I would want them to have Larry English. This guy is the perfect fit for our 3-4 defensive and he will flourish playing opposite of Porter. This guy really reminds me of Dermacus Ware and by saying that I am not saying that he is going to come in the league and get 20 sacks as a rookie. Youtube him and you will see what I mean. The kid plays with a fire and is one of the best pass-rushers I have seen in a long time. His weakness is playing against the run, luckily for us we have Matt Roth who is one of the best there is. I 100% endorse Larry English as our pick. I have 3 of his games on tape and will be watching and reporting so stay tuned. You don't know me so I can't say trust me but I will say this, Larry English is an impact player on defense and having him and Joey Porter rush the Quarterback would allow me and you to be starting corners for the Dolphins.

RealDriscoll
01-28-2009, 02:25 PM
I hear the Rams front office is really pushing for Crabtree to be a Ram. Holt has requested a trade and is not happy in St. Louis. I think Holt could be heading to Philadelphia. Donnie Avery is defiantly an up and coming but he is a perfect complement to Crabtree.

Nappy Roots
01-28-2009, 02:26 PM
Brown is also a restricted FA, so we would have to give a pick for him...

RealDriscoll
01-28-2009, 02:28 PM
If I were the Lions with #1 overall, I'd take Curry for sure

RealDriscoll
01-28-2009, 02:29 PM
Probably a 3rd Rounder for the best Center in football. I'd do it

RealDriscoll
01-28-2009, 02:30 PM
My mock is defiantly premature. After the combine we will have a better idea of how things shake up. One guy I want us to stay clear from is Percy Harvin. I don't like how his game will translate to the NFL.

phinfan33
01-28-2009, 02:43 PM
of course this hypothetical. but seriously you think we can get jason brown. the guys a beast. so even if the ravens are willing to let him go, as young as he is being as much of a beast as he is. we are not the only ones in good cap shape. it will be a bidding war something i dont think the fo is interested in getting into.

phinfan33
01-28-2009, 02:45 PM
oh yeah. the ravens are gonna want more than a 3rd for the best center in football.

RealDriscoll
01-28-2009, 03:25 PM
They don't have a choice if they can't afford him. If they tender him as a 1st Rounder they b etter have the cash to pay him or they could get zero compensation for him.

Looking at the teams with good cap space..

The Buccaneers just gave their Center Jeff Faine a huge contract last year. The Titans are next and I think they are safe at Center with Kevin Mawae. While he might not be young, their GM wouldn't be that foolish to invest so much money in one position. We are #6 in terms of cap space so I think it's a great situation for us and Brown. You could put Satele on the block and probably get the 3rd rounder you gave up for Brown. Football Economics to the t

01-28-2009, 08:27 PM
I am ALMOST positive that Brown is a UFA.

And two points on him potentially coming here. One, by all accounts, the interior of the line is a major priority for the Trifecta this offseason. And we saw last year that when they want a guy, they will get him in here. See Justin Smiley, signed literally hours after midnight on the day free agency began. This is not Parcells' first circus. Unlike Nick Saban, who couldnt attract a FA if his life depended on it, this guy knows how to work the system to get them in here, and once they're in here, he makes them feel wanted (the money helps too). Oh, and his reputation around the league among players is second to none. They want to play for the miracle worker himself. And secondly, the Dolphins are going to be a real attractive spot for UFAs. The city is terrific (weather, nightlife, golf etc.), and they are no longer the 1-15 or 6-10 Dolphins... They are division champions. No longer are there questions at QB. Its an entirely new situation. Should be fun.

nice effort.

william moore is roy williams like in coverage. can't cover a paper bag. we need a ballhawk who can cover at safety.

i personally think english is overrated. not good in space. high motor yes but does not change direction fluidly. 2nd round pick imo.

sintim was exposed in the senior bowl practices and game. he's lost in coverage and stiff in the hips. not good in space.

That site is wrong. He has 4 accrued seasons. His contract has ran out. He is in the same boat as Channing Crowder. 4 accrued seasons and contract ran out = UFA

I didn't consider Brown for one my FA moves because I thought he was a RFA and I would be certain the Ravens would give him a first round tender. If he is an UFA, he becomes one of my top FA targets with Karlos Dansby, Julius Peppers, or Chris Canty.

RealDriscoll
01-29-2009, 11:00 AM
Can the ravens afford to give him a 1st Round tender? Ray Lewis, Matt Stover, Bart Scott, Jim Leonard, Terrell Suggs, and Lorenzo Neal are all free-agents. I think they tender him as a 3rd Rounder

I didn't consider Brown for one my FA moves because I thought he was a RFA and I would be certain the Ravens would give him a first round tender. If he is an UFA, he becomes one of my top FA targets with Karlos Dansby, Julius Peppers, or Chris Canty.

I don't expect us to pursue Canty. DE is really our strongest deepest position on the entire roster IMO, or at least on the defense. I guess it doesn't hurt to make your strength even stronger, but there are just too many other positions that need addressed first.

Julius Peppers is not a Free Agent, and Cantry would be a bad pick up 1/3 aint bad. lol

:up: That's true, we do have talented younger players behind Holiday, so it would be best to invest that money somewhere else.

Oh c'mon man. This is nit pickin'. Let me be more accurate for the "O.C.D." types. Julius Peppers will be a free agent on Febuary 28, 2009. Since he's definitely not going to sign a long-term deal with the Panthers, I believe it's safe to say he IS a free agent.

Oh I wasn't aware. What did the Chargers trade their Round 3 pick for?

I am wrong the chargers traded their second rd pick

They picked a FB with the pats 2007 pick which was received as part of the trade of 7th overall pick to the saints and moving down to 10 .

patriots have 1 Rd1 , 2 Rd2 , 2 Rd3 picks....

Didn't Canty sign an extension with Dallas? Or was that Marc Columbo?

I agree. All the guys were are discussing are pending free agents. Peppers is no different. Sure, he may get Franchised, but so may Dansby, or several others as well.
