Heres the link to Mike Mayock's 1st round Mock Draft:
I think he did a great job predicting the first round (it's amazing how talented an analyst he can be when he has his head out of Matt Ryan's butt), and had those few surprising picks that also made sense that we see every year. Among them are Brandon Albert to the Patriots, Jerod Mayo to the Lions, and Jonathon Stewart to the Panthers. If his predictions are accurate, which I believe them to be, than it appears that the top 7 offensive tackles will be drafted in the first round:
Jake Long - Rams
Brandon Albert - Patriots
Ryan Clady - Broncos
Jeff Otah - Bears
Chris Williams - Texans
Gosder Cherilus - Steelers
Sam Baker - Packers
This becomes somewhat of a dilemma, because were in dire need of some offensive tackle help which ideally we should use with the first pick in the second round (Chris Long was taken with the first overall pick). However I just don't think the value is there with guys like Carl Nicks and Anthony Collins.
So the Question is: Do we reach somewhat and draft whoever is left a tackle, or draft another position and get some pretty good value? Notable guys he has dropping out of the first is Malcolm Kelly, Limas Sweed, Quentin Groves, Antoine Cason, and Kenny Phillips?
I personally would take Malcolm Kelly - he simply presents to much value at this stage of the draft, and address the offensive line with the next picks with guys like Chilo Rachal, Tony Hills, Oniel Cousins, or Roy Scheuning.
What do you guys prefer?
