CDS Mock Draft : Round 1

Note : This Mock Draft based on standings as of 01/24/05

1. San Francisco : QB Aaron Rodgers (Cal, 6-2, 198) SF needs a good QB, Nolan wants to put one of his guys in there. So he takes the local boy and makes good with the press in the process. Rodgers is accurate passer with good mechanics and leadership skills. Other possibilites include QB Alex Smith or trading down to get more value, SF has many holes to fill this offseason if it wants to compete again.

2. Miami : RB Cedric Benson (Texas, 6-0, 225) No question what Miami needs, and Benson is the best RB available. Benson has both power and speed. Other possibilities include RB Ronnie Brown, QB Alex Smith or OT Alex Barron.

3. Cleveland : CB Antrel Rolle (Miami, 6-1, 202) Cleveland needs defensive help and Rolle is the best defensive player available. Other possibilities include QB Alex Smith or possibly the next best defensive player LB Derrick Johnson.

4. Chicago : WR Mike Williams (USC, 6-5 235) Chicago drafts the playmaker WR, that's not from Michigan (see David Terrell). Other possibilities include LB Derrick Johnson, OT Alex Barron.

5. Tampa Bay : LB Derrick Johnson (Texas, 6-3 235) TB needs to bulk up it's LB corps with Brooks getting older, and Gold ready to leave. Johnson is a future playmaker on defense. Other possibilities include RB's Ronnie Brown and Carnell Williams, or LB Channing Crowder.

6. Tennessee : OT Alex Barron (FSU, 6-6, 315) Tenn. needs to address it's glaring need along the OL at some point and Barron is the best available Offensive Lineman. Many scouts have him rated just a notch below Robert Gallery from last year's draft. This move might also get McNair to back off of the retirement talk too. Other possibilities include CB Carlos Rogers or DT Travis Johnson, as Tenn really stunk it up on Defense last year.

7. Oakland : RB Ronnie Brown (Auburn, 6-1, 232) Oakland has a huge need for a young power RB. Brown in a Norv Turner Offense could be leading the league in yardage in the next couple of years. Other possibilities include WR Braylon Edwards (especially if Porter bolts to another team), RB Carnell Williams or CB Carlos Rogers.

8. Arizona : RB Carnell Williams (Auburn, 5-11, 204) ARZ needs a RB with Emmit's departure. Denny Green covets speed backs and will "reach" at this spot for the shifty Williams. Other Possibilities include QB Alex Smith or DE David Pollack.

9. Washington : WR Braylon Edwards (Michigan, 6-3, 206) WAS looks to add to it's offense. Edwards should take some of the double coverage off of Coles. Other possibilities include DE's Erasmus James or David Pollack.

10. Detroit : SS Thomas Davis (Georgia, 6-1, 220) After spending the last 4 first rounders on Offense the Lions turn their attention to the Defense. Detroit takes the best safety in the draft. Other possiblities include DE David Pollack, LB Channing Crowder, or CB Carlos Rogers.

11. Dallas : CB Carlos Rogers (Auburn, 6-1, 194) The D in big D went belly-up last year. Parcells has shown in the past that he will not overpay for a defensive back in FA so he picks up one on the cheap through the draft. Dallas secondary now has 3 first rounders, all Thorpe Award winners. Other possibilities include DE David Pollack or OT Jamaal Brown.

12. San Diego : LB Channing Crowder (Florida, 6-3, 245) SD grabs the best ILB in the draft, who teams up with Leber and Edwards to make an excellent LB corps. Other possibilities include DT Travis Johnson, DE David Pollack or CB Justin Miller.

13. Houston : OT Jamaal Brown (Oklahoma, 6-6, 313) Houston still needs help on the O-line to protect Carr. Other possibilities include WR Mark Clayton DE/OLB Dan Cody.

14. Carolina : TE Heath Miller (Virginia, 6-5 255) Miller adds another dimension to Delhomme's passing attack. Miller is the best TE prospect in draft and should open up things for Carolina's WR's. Other Possibilities include WR Mark Clayton (if Muhammed leaves).

15. Kansas City : DT Travis Johnson (FSU, 6-4, 300) KC needs to add to it's run defense, as everyone and their mom ran up the gut on KC this past year. Ryan Simms has not lived up to his pre-draft hype that he garnered a couple of years ago. Other possibilities include CB Justin Miller, LB Channing Crowder.

16. New Orleans : QB Alex Smith (Utah, 6-4, 230) New Orleans realizes that it ain't going to far NFL with Brooks at the helm. Fassel looking to breathe new life into the team or possibly spark Brooks to a higher performance level drafts Smith. Other possibilities include LB Odell Thurman or CB Justin Miller.

17. Cincinnati : DE David Pollack (Georgia, 6-3, 276) Bookends with Justin Smith. Should excel in Marvin Lewis Defensive system. Other possiblities include DE Erasmus James or DT Antajj Hawthorne.

18. Minnesota : CB Justin Miller (Clemson, 5-11, 200) MIN needs secondary help after being torched by journeymen Todd Pinkston and Freddie Mitchell. Other possiblities include DE's Dan Cody and Shaun Cody.

19. St. Louis : DE Dan Cody (Oklahoma, 6-5 270) Cody joins Leornard Little and Jimmie Kennedy on a young emerging D-line. Should get lots of sack opportunities playing on turf. Other possibilities include DE Shaun Cody, WR Mark Clayton.

20. Dallas : DT Antajj Hawthorne (Wisconsin, 6-3, 300) Parcells loves him some beef in the middle. (mmmm Beef) After Glover, there is nobody of note at this position. Other Possibilites include WR Mark Clayton and DE Shaun Cody.

21. Jacksonville : DE Erasmus James (Wisconsin, 6-4, 265) JAX needs DE after cutting Douglas last year. Other possibilities include DE Shaun Cody, CB Justin Miller.

22. Baltimore : WR Mark Clayton (Oklahoma, 5-11, 187) Baltimore gets another weapon for the young Boller. Clayton can run block down the field and should help free up Heap with his routes. Other possibilities include DE Shaun Cody, QB Kyle Orton.

23. Seattle : RB JJ Arrington (Cal, 5-11, 210) Seattle picks it's replacement for the soon to be departed Alexander. Other possibilities include QB Kyle Orton or OT Wesley Britt.

24. Green Bay : DT/DE Shaun Cody (USC, 6-4, 290) GB needs some help along the D-Line. Other Possibilities include QB Kyle Orton or CB Brandon Browner.

25. Denver : TE Alex Smith (Stanford, 6-5, 255) Denver hasn't had a good TE since Sharpe. Other possibilities include CB Brandon Browner or DE/DT Shaun Cody.

26. New York Jets : CB Brandon Browner (Oregon St., 6-4, 202) Jets get defensive help. Other possiblities include CB Adam Jones, or RB's Ryan Moats or Vernard Morency (if Lamont Jordan leaves in FA).

27. Atlanta : OT Wesley Britt (Alabama, SR, 6-8, 312) Atlanta looks to protect Vick more. They realized two years ago without Vick, they ain't going too far. Other possibilities include LB's Darryl Blackstock and Barret Ruud.

28. San Diego : Odell Thurman (Georgia 6-1, 236) Someone has to cover Tony Gonzalez. Other possibilities include trading down to free up cap space, or CB Marlin Jackson.

29. Indianapolis : CB Marlin Jackson (Michigan, 6-1, 199) Indy has no problem scoring pts so this pick will used on the defense. Other possibilities LB's Darryl Blackstock and Barret Ruud. Colts may end up trading this pick to free up cap space.

30. Pittsburgh : Chris Canty (Virginia, 6-7, 280) PIT can afford to draft Canty and let him heal completely. PIT likes to "redshirt" rookies. Other possibilities include CB Corey Webster or LB Barret Ruud.

31. Philadelphia : LB Darryl Blackstock (Virginia, 6-3, 235) Philly needs to beef up the LB corps. Other possibilities include LB Barret Ruud or RB Ryan Moats.

32. New England : CB Adam Jones (West Virginia, 5-11, 190) Everything keeps going New England's way. NE needs secondary help in a bad way and the draft is here to oblige with a plethora of CB's coming out of school. Jones also returns kicks. Other possibilities include CB's Corey Webster and Marlin Jackson, LB's Darryl Blackstock and Barret Ruud.

Miami would not take a RB that high and so they will trade down

You're right they should, and probably will if they can get the value they're looking for in return. However, the parity in this draft (with no standout super stars, but a tone of very solid players) may make this tougher to do this year than most. Benson would be the value pick at a position of need if they can't move.

Wow, you guys really have Smith falling, and Arrington is going a lot higher than I expected. Interesting mock though, looking forward to seeing how it changes as we get closer to the combine

Smith is a Kiper wonder...I mean he's got talent, but he is NOT better than Aaron Rodgers, Don, and he is not worth anything higher than where we've slotted him.

(Kiper hypes a guy, and all of a sudden he's a better football player than he's been all year??---we just don't buy it.)

i agree with you on smith. but it seems you guys at this site make mocks and top 100 just to disagree with everyone else.

Nappy,


LOL...No...

Unlike many other sites, our staff writers are required to watch and tape dozens of NCAA games and write game reports. Many other sites (especially smaller ones) just cut & paste from whatever the "big boys" put out.

We may be different, but we call it like we see it, and we're not afraid to disagree with the big boys, especially when we suspect behind-the-scenes hanky panky.
