NFL DRAFT ROUND 1

1. Miami Dolphins - Chris Long, DE Virginia
Team Needs: CB S DE DT OLB ILB WR
Unless Bill Parcells decides John Beck isn’t the franchise QB of the future and uses this pick to secure one, the Dolphins are likely to address either the offensive or defensive line. Long, the son of Hall of Famer Howie Long, is a complete defensive end who is an explosive pass rusher as is evidenced by his 14 sacks last season playing in a 3-4 system.

2. St. Louis Rams - Jake Long, OT Michigan
Team Needs: OT OLB CB DE OG QB
Orlando Pace may still have a couple seasons left in him, but he is coming off a serious season-ending injury and he is 32-years old. Long could be moved to the right side where he would have some more time to develop and refine his footwork before taking over at left tackle.

3. Atlanta Falcons - Matt Ryan, QB Boston College
Team Needs: RB QB DT OT ILB WR DE K
At this point, Chris Redman is penciled in at the top of the depth chart, and he played fairly well toward the end of the 2007 season. But he’s probably nothing more than a bridge to the next guy, who should be Ryan if he’s still available when the Falcons pick.

4. Oakland Raiders - *Vernon Gholston, DE/OLB Ohio State
Team Needs: S DE OT WR DT
With the retirement of Warren Sapp, the Raiders are in need of a play-making defensive tackle with the quickness to cause disruptions and collapse the pocket up the middle. LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey seems to fit that bill, and is the logical pick, in my opinion. But rumor has it the Raiders are in love with Gholston, who would give the Raiders a pair of legitimate pass rushers when paired with Derrick Burgess.

5. Kansas City Chiefs - Glenn Dorsey, DT LSU
Team Needs: OT CB WR OG C K
With Michigan’s Jake Long off the board, the Chiefs are likely to look to fill another position or trade down a few spots for Boise State’s Ryan Clady. Now that Dorsey seems to have put to rest issues about his health, he should be the top defensive tackle off the board.

6. New York Jets - *Darren McFadden, RB Arkansa
Team Needs: DE CB ILB OT OG C
Despite trading for Thomas Jones following the 2006 season, the Jets would have a hard time letting McFadden – who has a rare combination of speed, balance, and vision -- fall to the division-rival Patriots.

7. New England Patriots (from San Francisco) - *Ryan Clady, OT Boise State
Team Needs: ILB OLB CB
Most likely the Patriots will try to trade out of this pick, but if they can’t they will probably go with the best available player. Clady is a very athletic tackle who handles speed rushers well and should be a good fit on the left side in the NFL. Some consider him to be a better left tackle prospect than Michigan’s Jake Long.

8. Baltimore Ravens - Mike Jenkins, CB South Florida
Team Needs: CB OLB ILB DE DT QB OG C
A future franchise shutdown corner is needed to play the nickel now, step in when either Chris McAlister or Samari Rolle is hurt, and eventually take over as a starter in the future.

9. Cincinnati Bengals - Sedrick Ellis, DT USC
Team Needs: DE DT OLB S TE WR
The Bengals have no one at defensive tackle that commands much respect from opposing offenses. They need a quick powerful tackle who can create an interior pass rush, collapse the pocket, and stop the run

10. New Orleans Saints - Leodis McKelvin, CB Troy State
Team Needs: DT OLB ILB CB
The addition of Randall Gay through free agency should be an improvement over Jason David, who was a free-agent disappointment from the 2007 offseason. But the team still needs a youngster who can be groomed into a franchise-type corner.

11. Buffalo Bills - *Devin Thomas, WR Michigan State
Team Needs: CB WR OLB DT DE
A legitimate threat opposite Lee Evans would really help open up the offense, and give Trent Edwards a nice pair of weapons to work with. Thomas, who is a big, physical receiver, spent just one season in Division I, but has the potential to develop into an elite NFL receiver.

12.Denver Broncos - Chris Williams, OT Vanderbilt
Team Needs: DT OLB S DE OT
Eric Pears and Ryan Harris are penciled in as the starters right now, but the retirement of Lepsis has left the team thin at the tackle position and Williams’ athletic style would be a nice fit for the Broncos zone-blocking scheme.

13. Carolina Panthers - Derrick Harvey, DE/OLB Florida
Team Needs: QB DE S ILB DT OT WR
Having retained both their starting offensive tackles, the Panthers could go after a guy like Harvey, who has potential as either a defensive end or a linebacker. He should make an impact as a situational pass rusher early in his career, but could develop into an every-down player.

14. Chicago Bears - *Branden Albert, OT/OG Virginia
Team Needs: QB OG OT WR S OLB DT
The Bears need some fresh bodies on the offensive line, particularly at right tackle where the aging Fred Miller was released following a down season. Albert, who is shooting up draft charts, has the versatility to play all along the offensive line, and would allow veteran John Tait to move to right tackle, where he is more comfortable.

15. Detroit Lions - *Rashard Mendenhall, RB Illinois
Team Needs: CB ILB OT S TE RB
The Lions need to upgrade their offensive line, but with all the top tackles off the board at this point, they’ll have to turn their attention elsewhere. With the release of Kevin Jones, Tatum Bell is penciled in as the starter, but he’s better suited for a back-up role.

16. Arizona Cardinals - *Jonathan Stewart, RB Oregon
Team Needs: RB S OLB CB OT
Edgerrin James will be 30-years old this year and hasn't been nearly as effective since coming over from Indianapolis. Also, J.J. Arrington doesn't look like a guy who is going to be a featured back. A young franchise runner is needed to bring the Cardinal offense to the next level.

17.Minnesota Vikings - Phillip Merling, DE Clemson
Team Needs: DE OT OG WR S CB
Erasmus James appears to be made of glass, and can’t be counted on to stay in the lineup for extended periods and Kenechi Udeze may not play at all this year because of his medical condition. Merling might be a little bit of a reach here, but the Vikings have a huge need in this area. In fact, it wouldn’t be surprising if they draft more than one defensive end this year.

18. Houston Texans - *Aquib Talib, CB Kansas
Team Needs: RB CB SS FS ILB OT
With Dunta Robinson possibly out until midseason with hamstring and knee injuries, and Fred Benett and Jacque Reeves among an underwhelming group of candidates competing for the other corner spot, a rookie who can step in and defend the pass is needed immediately. There are some character concerns with Talib following the revelation that he failed three drug tests while at Kansas, which could force the Texans to look in another direction.

19. Philadelphia Eagles - Antoine Cason, CB Arizona
Team Needs: WR S OT DE CB OLB
Having signed free agent Asante Samuel, it would seem corner is not a pressing need for the Eagles. But with word that Lito Sheppard is on the trading block, the team may elect to go with the top corner available when they select in the first round.

20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - *James Hardy, WR Indiana
Team Needs: OT WR DE RB CB DT K
Joey Galloway can still run with the best of them, but he’s defied Father Time to get this far without significantly losing a step. Hardy may not be quite as fast as Galloway, but at 6-5, he has a tremendous size advantage over most NFL corners.

21. Washington Redskins - *Calais Campbell, DE Miami (FL)
Team Needs: OT DE WR OG CB S ILB
The Redskins need a young defensive end who can stuff the run and rush the passer. Historically they usually look for bargains on the defensive line, but they would be better served using a top draft pick to fill the need.

22. Dallas Cowboys (from Cleveland)- Dominique Rogers-Cromartie, CB Tennessee State
Team Needs: WR CB RB OT
The Cowboys don’t have a lot of needs, so they have the luxury of upgrading at either cornerback, wide receiver, running back, or offensive line with their two first-round picks. Another franchise corner to pair opposite Terrence Newman would give the team some versatility in being able to use Anthony Henry at free safety if they so choose. They would also gain some overall depth in their secondary.

23. Pittsburgh Steelers - Limas Sweed, WR Texas
Team Needs: ILB OT OG DE CB WR
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has let it be known that he would like to have a tall receiver, and if the 6-4 Sweed is still on the board when the Steelers pick it would not be a shock to see them take him to keep happy a guy they invested heavily in during the offseason.

24. Tennessee Titans - *Malcolm Kelly, WR Oklahoma
Team Needs: CB WR DE DT FS OG OLB
Vince Young needs some weapons to work with if he is ever going to become a complete quarterback. Following his poor showing at Oklahoma’s Pro Day, Kelly’s stock is likely to drop.

25. Seattle Seahawks - Kentwan Balmer, DT North Carolina
Team Needs: OG WR TE RB OT
The Seahawks have adequate tackles in Brandon Mebane and Rocky Bernard, but Marcus Tubbs hasn’t played in a season-and-a-half because of knee problems, so he can’t be counted on.

26. Jacksonville Jaguars - Quentin Groves, DE Auburn
Team Needs: WR S CB DE OT OG
The Jaguars inability to consistently pressure the quarterback has been a problem the past couple years, and Groves has the athletic ability to make a difference immediately as a situational pass rusher.

27. San Diego Chargers - Gosder Cherilus, OT Boston College
Team Needs: OT DE NT OG S
The Chargers are loaded with talent and don’t have many holes to fill, but could use an upgrade at right tackle. Cherilus is a massive guy with the potential to play either tackle position.

28. Dallas Cowboys - *DeSean Jackson, WR/RS California
Team Needs: WR CB RB OT
Having used their first pick on defense, the Cowboys would probably turn their attention to the offensive side of the ball with pick No. 2, where they could pick up a speed receiver to stretch the field and open things up underneath for Terrell Owens and tight end Jason Witten. Jackson could also see double duty as a return man.

29. San Francisco 49ers (from Indianapolis) - Dan Conner, LB Penn State
Team Needs: WR OT DE CB OLB
Would the 49ers draft another inside linebacker in the first round for the second year in a row? I don’t know, but if you plug Conner in next to Patrick Willis with Manny Lawson on the outside, you have the makings of a very formidable linebacking crew.

30. Green Bay Packers - Tracy Porter, CB Indiana
Team Needs: CB OT OLB DT TE
Al Harris and Charles Woodson are among the best corner duos in the NFL, but they’re not getting any younger. Drafting a top corner this year would allow the team to work him into the rotation slowly and offer a little insurance in case one of the starters begins to break down.

31. New England Patriots - Pick Forfeited
Team Needs: ILB OLB CB
The Patriots have forfeited this pick as a penalty for their role in Spygate.

32. New York Giants - Keith Rivers, OLB USC
Team Needs: OT CB OLB S
Kawika Mitchell and Reggie Torbor were both free-agent casualties and the jury is still out on the Matthias Kiwanuka experiment. Rivers would be an upgrade in talent and add some much-needed athleticism to the linebacking unit.

I assume this is your personal mock draft..

I will start off by saying that there is no way vernon golston will be taken by the Raiders, especially if Dorsey is still on the board...the Raiders need a DT, not a DE, or they could take a playmaker like Darren Mcfadden.

There is no way the Pats will take an offensive player at their 7th pick unless mcfadden is still around...if not the pats will take one of the top 3 CBs (mckelvin, talib, or cromartie) or vernon gholston or keith rivers.....the pats already have arguably the best oline anyways

The Ravens will not take a CB at their 8th pick...their gunna take Ryan Clady or Matt Ryan if hes still available...maybe Brian Brohm

Devin Thomas as the 11th pick?!?!?!? Are you kidding.....Malcom Kelly and Limas Sweed are both better WR options than Thomas

Antonie Cason for the Eagles???...a CB?!? If they were to take a CB here, why would they take Cason over Cromartie.....Even if Lito does get traded they have Sheldon Brown, who is a great CB to play opposite Asante......the Eagles will go oline or WR here

Philip Merling is a much much better DE option for the Redskins...Campbell not so much

Limas Sweed is probably gone already and the Steelers are gunna do oline or dline here...they dont need another WR

Kelly will be gone way long ago, the Titans will take Devin Thomas here

The Seahawks are going best receiver available here...TE Dustin Keller most likely

No way Keith Rivers will be available here...Giants will go Jerod Mayo, Dan Conner, or a safety


>Dont have enough time to comment on the rest of your mock draft...

I must say...this years draft just isn't interesting to me...

Not because there aren't good players but...I'm a Colts fan...the Colts traded their 1st round pick on draft day to the 49ers for their 2nd round pick...

Not bad for the Panthers except for the 2 safeties thing. Fox doesn't value the FS position and throws in pretty much anyone. It just won't happen. Fox also won't neglect the OL needs within the first day. Harvey, Henne, and the RB are all solid picks though. If Phillips were there in rd 2 he'd be too good to pass up though. I'd just make sure they get a solid OT in the mid 3rd pick or 4th for sure.

jus looked at the latter rounds of your draft and saw some things i needed to point out

no way jeff otah, jerod mayo, felix jones, or mario manningham falls that far

no way in hell is john david booty getting picked in the 4th round.....he is closer to being undrafted than 4th round....he will probably be late 6th, early 7th round though

I agree. Otah won't make it out of the top 19 for sure, and will probably go to Carolina ( 13) or Chicago( 14) . Mayo will also go in the first IMO. Manningham could fall becuase of slow combine times, lying to NFL teams about positive drug test, dropping too many passes, being gunshy over the middle, and actually failing the aforementioned multiple drug test though. He reminds me of Dontes stallworth. great talent, will have some big plays, maybe even a season or 2, but disappears to often and is soft over the middle. Booty could even go in the bottom of the 2nd to Green bay if you ask me , but I think 3rd/4th is about right for him. Felix Jones could go as high as 22, and as a Dallas fan I think thats too high and would prefer he go at 28 "if " we take him. He could fall to the middle of the 2nd though. RB's fall a lot of the time, especially when they are not everydown backs, and Jones hasn't ever had to carry the load by himself before. Jammal Charles and Felix Jones are very similar players to me. I would prefer Dallas trade back at 28 if they don't get lucky and have Stewart/Mendenhall fall to them at 22. They could acquire another pick and still get Jones, Charles, or even Ray Rice in the 2nd. With Stewart coming off a injury, and Talib also having drug test issues, it's conceivable both could be there when Dallas picks at 22. Now that would be a tough choice, but I would be cool with it. I still think McFadden could fall, as only the Jets really worrie me about taking him in the top 8, and I think if Gholston/C;Long/Ryan are there they take them instead. . Cincy is trying to trade up to get Ellis I beleive. After that the only team likely to take him is Chicago at 14. Buffallo and Denver,both might be willing to trade back. So Dallas could still trade up for him if he falls outside the top 10. As long as Dallas comes out of the draft with a good corner( I personally don't think counting on a even reinstated Pac-man is wise) , RB, and WR I'm content. I think they will probably draft 2 corners, at least 1 WR, 2 RB's, a developemental QB and a safety at the least. Since CB, RB, WR, along with OT are the deepest positions in this years draft I think Dallas will have good one. Just my opinion of course

Jake Long will be #1. 'Fins have a news conference set in a few minutes to make it official, according to ESPN.

Edit: It's official. He's been signed and will be #1. So now we start talking about who's #2.

Care to make a mmapg wager on that? I believe Booty will be gone by round 3. Not that many avatars could be worse than my current one.

Since Mike Rucker retired today, I can see Carolina taking Harvey with that pick. They did resign their OL'man that were free agents. I think that they go defense in the 1st round unless Clady is still available.

Mcfadden will go to the Raiders and Matt Ryan will go to the Ravens

the ravens need someone to fill the spot of McNair and Ryan has the ability to be that franchise player

Alright heres my list of most overrated players this year. I will post my most underrated tomorrow.

Overrated
1.Justin King- CB- Penn st.- Workout warrior/combine stud who regularly got beat in college. Was a big time high school prospect, and is so gifted athletically he may go in the 2nd round,and I have even seem some mocks having him go in the 1rst. . Can't cover IMO, and it not even tough against the run.Will need a lot of coaching , and a willingness to accept it, to be a starter IMO.4th round developmental guy.

2. Josh Barret- SS- AZ. St.- Injury prone workout warrior who looks lost in coverage. Has the size , but not the toughness to play linebacker IMO. I have seen mocks with him going in the 2nd or 3rd. One of those guys who may get a big paycheck and dissapear to me. I wouldn't take him above the 6th round, and thn only if I had a DB coach who I thought could motivate him.

3. Tom Zbikowski- SS- Notre Dame- Another big time prospect who never lived up to the hype.Reminds me of Roy Wiliams of Dalls. A guy who started off really well( freshman, sophomore years- to Wiliams first 4 NFL years) then was exposed in coverage. Gets turned around all the time when the balls in the air, is out of position , and isn't even a reliable tackler anymore. Both were once stalwarts against the run and punished receivers after the catch. Now both guys have been beaten so many times they actually look cautious in there 1rst step . Like they are afraid of getting beat against the pass, and are backing up when the balls snapped. Both are at least tough, and love football so they can contribute somewhere, but I don't see Zbikowski ever being a productive starter, unless he's in a Tampa 2 cover scheme, with great coverage MLB's and FS's. Wiliams needs to be a weakside linebacker in a 4-3 sceme, or lose 25 lbs, and see if it makes him fast enough to stay with TE's. Tom is too small to switch to linebacker, unlike Williams, and will probably end up just being a good special teamer. Could go in the 2nd or 3rd from what i'm reading and hearing in draft talk. Shouldn't be higher than a 5th IMO.

4. Mario Manningham-WR- Michigan- Big play guy at Michigan, but also was highly inconsistent. Dropped a lot of balls,and has alligator arms over the middle. His abilty to separate( if he gets off the line of scrimmage) is probably the 2nd best in this receiver class . Still, he showed up out of shape at the combine and ran in the 4.6's. Showed up in shape at his pro day later and ran a 4.4, but why would a guy not be prepared for the combine? He had no reported injury. Has great hands if he's wide open, but if he is afraid to get hit & can't get off the line of scrimmage , how much can he help you? I see him as a # 3 slot receiver who can make some big plays only. In addition to multiple suspensions in college, and repeated failed drug test at Michigan , he also lied to NFL teams about the failed test. Some were saying he was the draft best receiver before the combine, After his pro day redemption I started hearing it again., After lying to teams he won't go before the 2nd, and shouldn't go till the 3rd IMO. If he's in a spread offense like the 49er's will probably run this year, he may still be relatively successful. Reminds me of shorter, slighter Donte Stallworth. May have some big games, and even a big season or 2, but will never be a legit # 1 receiver IMO.

5. Joe Flacco- Yes, he has all the measurables. Ryan Leaf was probably the most physically gifted QB in NFL history, but where is he now. I don't think he is a head case like Leaf, but I see him as a project the way Leaf should have been . He left Pitt becuase he said he wasn't getting a fair shot to beat out Tyler Palko. He was the programs top recruit, so that makes no sense, and the coaching staff said he wanted the job handed to him . He played at little Delware against lesser competition, and didn't exactly light it up at the senior bowl. When a small college guy like McKelvin, Rodgers -Cromartie , J. Simpson and Flacco gets invited to the senior bowl, it's their chance to prove they have the abilty to play with players from big schools. The others all came up big, he didn't. He also played in the shotgun , in a spread offense, and very few QB's from those schools have done well at the NFL level. I know he has the strongest arm, and a Rothlisberger build, but he is 3 years away from possibly being a starter if you ask me. If I was the rams, and looking to groom a guy for when Bulger ages, then I would take him. If I was the Dolphins, Falcons, Cheifs, Jets, Panthers, or Bears who might need a guy who can play soon- I would stay away. I have read/heard that some of those teams are thinking of trading back into the 1rst round to draft him. If I were them I would take Henne,Brohm, and even Booty ( if you run the west coast offense ahead of him. ) If you have the luxury of giving him a few years to learn , a second round pick might be worthy.

6. Patrick Lee- CB- Auburn- Can't cover and is soft in run support. Never saw a double move he didn't bite on. Maybe could help on special teams. I have seen him in the 2nd in most mocks. 5-6 round seems more appropriate to me.

7. Dre Moore- DT -Marylans- NFL teams are always wary of guys who lack a motor, and guys who dissapear for stretches in a game.Has all the talent in the world, but only regularly showed it at the end of last season. Will need a DL coach to ride him, and good veteran players to mentor Him. I have seen mocks with him going consistently in the 2nd round. Has 1rst round ability , but I think he has played like a 4th-5th rounder the majority of the time he was on the field.

8. Kellen Davis _TE- Michigan- Workout warrior. great combine, with little college production to show for it. Might be the best physical specimen at the position, but is a soft blocker. Until his senior year, he was a bust . Even then his coaches claimed he wasn't very tough. When your college coaches tell NFL teams that a 6 ft 7 262 lb. bodybuilder looking TE is really only usable as a receiver - somethings wrong. Boom or bust guy. I'm guessing bust.

9. Xavier Adibi- OLB- Virginia Tech- Played ILB in college. Too slight to do it in the NFL. Is best when he has big DT's in front of him ,and can just run to the ball.Got manhandled at the senior bowl. Has the speed, so he will have to move to the weak side. Can't play in a 3-4, and only 4-3 teams who play a lot of cover 2( TB, Indy, Minn., KC etc. ) really fit him IMO. I have seen him as a second rounder in most mocks. His inability to fit into a lot schemes makes him a 3-4 round guy to me.


10. Steve Slaton- RB- West Virginia- Was considered a 1rst round tandem back ( similar to Felix Jones and Jamall Cahrles now) by most draftniks before the season. Had a bad year, was injured a lot ,fumbled the ball a lot, and started dancing around to much behind the line of scrimmage. Wasn't even the feature back by the end of the year, which is why I fear he came out as a Junior . Is too small to be anything more than 3rd round back IMO. Guys who regress in their last year are scary to me.They may be worried about injury and be tentative. May also help on special teams if his hands come back. Returned Kicks in college, but dropped back to back balls at the combine in the kickoff return drill. Also, he looked like a young Barry Sanders at times before this year, and claimed to run a low 4.3 forty . He ran a 4.45 at the combine and his pro day. Fast but 11th among Rb's at the combine in the 40. Measured in at 5 ft. 9 and 197 lbs. at the combine , after reportedly adding 11 pounds at one of the predaft camps. Whether he was too small before , and the weight gain slowed him down,or was always this speed I don't know. Vernon Gholton added 13 pounds of muscle between the end of the season and the combine, but got faster. I think a lot of teams are onto his weaknesses now, and I don't see him going to the 4-5 round now.

My most underrated players

1. Brian Brohm- QB- Loisville- Was considered a better prospect than Russel and Quinn last year by most clubs ,before he decided to return for his senior year. He did need shoulder surgery after his junior year, which is why he went back into the draft. . Now it's possible some teams after taking a deeper look could have changed their minds, but he still would have at least went to Atlanta in last years draft( # 8 overall) , and the Petrino ( Brohms college coach first 3 years) situation might not have went so crappy for Atlanta. I really liked Brohm before the process started and still thought he was a close second to Ryan then. I saw a really good discussion on why Brohm shouldn't be dropping this week that swayed me that I was right all along Brohm, Despite losing his head coach( and some of his teams best players) for his senior year, he came back healthy and had an ever better senior year. As a junior he completed 63.6% ( 199 out of 313) of his passes, with 16 touchdowns & 5 picks, and 3049 yards. As a senior he completed 65.1%( 308 out of 473) , for 30 TD's & 12 picks, for 4024 yards. Has good ,not great NFL arm, will probably be the 3rd quickest ( Ryan and Henne played in more pro style offenses) Qb ready to play. Not as gifted as some, but reads defenses good and will get the job done pretty well .Probably will go in the bottom of the first top of the 2nd, but I think he's the 8th best player in the draft. Reminds me of a Drew Brees- New orleans /Matt Hassleback- Seattle

2. Ray rice- RB- Rutgers- Despite his size- 5 ft. 8 - 200 lbs. can run between the tackles pretty well. Runs a 4.42 ,so slightly above average speed for a NFL starter. Has a good burst when he cuts, accelerates very quickly, Low center of gravity, and doesn't take a lot of big hits, despite a high number of carries . Rushed for 2012 yards and 24 touchdowns last year, despite the fact that everyone knew he was usually getting the ball. With RB being this drafts deepest position, will probably go in the middle/bottom of the 2nd round. I think he's got first round talent, and is one of only 4 backs in this draft I see as every down players in the backfield. Reminds me of a cross between Emmit Smith-Dallas and M. Jones Drew- Jacksonville

3. Owen Scmidt- FB- West Virginia- Best fullback in the draft. Not just a blocker, although he is a very good one. Also has the abilty to be tough runner in short yardage situations ,and a developing receiver. This position never gets enough importance in the draft IMO. A lot of teams use a lot of 3 receiver sets these days, and the FB isn't as widely used as it used to be. Still a punishing blocker, with enough size ( 6 ft. 2 250 lbs. ) that he could play TE/HB. Will also be factor on special teams. Most fullbacks don't go before the 4th round at best. This guy will play in the league for 10 years and be force IMO. I say low 2nd/ high 3rd round value . Reminds me of former Dallas Cowboy, Darryl " Moose' Johnston

4. Jordy Nelson-WR- Kansas State- Big west coast offense type receiver, with more long speed than was originally thought. Gets a good release against press coverage. Strong, good balance and great hands. Big ( 6 ft. 3 -217 lbs. ) but still ran a 4.45 combine 40. Played QB and strong safety in High school , and shows high football intelligence. Walk on at Kansas st. , who was originally a SS. Earned a scholarship by ( redshirt) sophmore year and converted to WR . Had 112 catches for 1606 yards and 11 TD's as a Senior. Played well against top competition. Only returned 5 punts , but 2 were for touchdowns, so he can also help in the return game.Good Senior bowl. I have never seen him going above the mid 2nd in any mock. I think he is the 2nd best receiver in this class and worthy of a 1rst round pick. Reminds me of Marcus Colston- New Orleans

4. Carl Nicks- OT- ,Nebraska- Has had multiple off the field incidents or I think he would be the 4th or 5th O-lineman off the board. I thought he was the best O-lineman at the senior bowl, and the only guy who hung with Sedrick Ellis in 1 on 1's . Big man-6 ft. 5 - 340 lbs. with good ( not great ) feet. May be able to play LT, but I think he would dominate at RT , or even guard if you need him there. Long arms, and locks them out well. Powerful initial hand punch. Only has problems with speed rushers, and then it's only if he misses his initial punch. If he hits it ,they are out of the play. Good drive blocker, and sinks his hips before he explodes into the defender. I think he will go in the 3rd, probably to the Cheifs( or some other power run team) , but his skills are better than Cherildus , and equal to Otah's IMO. If you can keep him out of trouble he's a steal. Reminds me of Flozell Adams- Dallas

5. Jerome Simpson- WR- coastal carolina- Small school guy who lit it up at the senior bowl. Longest arms of any receiver, I'm talking DE/OT long. Good hands. Great leaping abilty, and seemed unintimidated against top competition. Needs route refinement. Ran a 4.42 at the combine, but doesn't seem that fast on the field. May be a bit raw, but I think he can contribute as a # 3 as WR as rookie, and on special teams. May also turn out to be a kick off returner , but hasn't shown a lot there yet. Willing blocker, played on running team in college. Will at least slow down the defender, even though eh won't be de-cleting al ot of guys . In 2 or 3 years I think this guy is at least a #2, with a lot big play capability. Could be a #1. Reminds me of Reggie Wayne- Indy

6. Eric Young- OT- Tennesee- Started at LT for Tenn. for 8 games as a senior before a torn Quad ended his season early. Started at RT as a junior. Good feet. Very agile . Gets to the second level. Great hand punch. Some people see him as a guard, and with his agility I think he could pull and get to the 2nd level very well. Is only 6 ft. 4- 305 lbs. ( small for a LT needs about 10 -15 pounds more of muscle ) , but I think he has the feet to stay there. Needs a little weight room time to stay at tackle, but I think he could start as a guard right away for a lot of teams. If he was completely healthy, I would rate him the 4th best LT prospect, and second best guard in the draft. With his injury he may not go till the 3rd-4th round. I think who ever takes him will get a injury steal along the lines of way Dallas did with Chris Canty. Reminds me of Eric Steinbach_ Cleveland

7. Red Bryant- DT- Texas A& M- Big ( 6 ft. 4- 318 lbs.) run stuffing DT. Not a lot of pass rush moves yet, but his bull rush is top notch. Is probably the best fit for a 3-4 team at NT who needs him to play the 0 technique. If you shade a nose like San Diego /Dallas, I think Sedrick Ellis could play it better. I think he could get even bigger & stronger with time. Had a shoulder injury at the combine , but still benched 225 28 times. I think he is one of the stronger D-lineman in the whole draft. Very agile, and has a good motor.I haven't sen a mock with him above the 3rd round. If you are 3/4 team I think he's worth a low 1rst/ high 2nd rounder. Reminds me of a bigger/faster Jason Feguson-Miami

8. Mike Pollak- Center- Az. St. - Best center in the draft IMO. Smart, makes good line calls. Good use of hands. Great on combo blocks, but not as quick to the second level when he comes off the double, as he could be in time. Played on a subpar line, and I think with better guards to combo with ,could be a 10 year starter in the league. Needs more functional strength. I looked at his weight room numbers, and I would expect more knock back or knockdown blocks from him. Still a good drive blocker when he locks on though. Can play in any scheme. Is a little above average blocker in all areas, except drive blocking ,where he excels. Played pretty well at the senior bowl, and only Sedrick Ellis got the better of him, and Ellis got he better of everybody consistently, except Carl Nicks. Reminds me of Nick Mangold-Jets

9. Jake Ikegwuonu- CB- Wisconsin- If it weren't for a torn ACL/MCL while preparing for the draft I think he would be the first corner taken. Had a burglary charge from a couple years back ( stole a nintendo from a dorm room ) recently settled with probation and community service. Most physical corner in the draft before the injury, even more than Brandon Flowers. Fills hard in the run game, and is a sure tackler. Great ball skills, and jam at line. If he misses his jam is still above average. I think he goes in the 4th /5th becuase of the serious injury, Despite what he says I think he doesn't play this year. Ran a 4.44 in campus agility drills ,in front of scouts, in the spring. Not sure how fast he will be after this type of injury. May need to be a cover 2 corner, play against bigger receivers, or move to safety if he's slowed down. Is 5 ft. 11 - 195 lbs. now. I think he could bulk up and play free safety very well if he is slowed. Reportedly loves football, and has a high football IQ. Teams avoided throwing to his side last year, because of his skills. Took it too 6. ft 5 1-2 round pick James Hardy and Marrio Manningham when he was matched up one on one with both. If I was team that had extra 3rd round picks, or filed my major needs early i would take him in the 3rd round. Reminds me of Nate Clements-Buffalo.

10. Curtis Lofton- ILB- Oklahoma- Played OLB at Oklahoma but I think he fits better inside. Probably the best ILB in the draft for a 3/4 or 4/3 team inside, after Jerod Mayo. Mean tackler. Drops well in coverage, and catches the ball well( caught a lot of passes as a FB in high school) .Low center of gravity , and gets under lineman's pads , to stack & shed ,when they come out on him. Good instincts, and runs to the ball every play. Forced 4 fumbles, had 10 tackles for a loss, intercepted 3 passes, and deflected 2 passes last year. One of those guys who is aways around the ball. Reminds me of London Fletcher- Washington

My top 64 overall players. Taking all thing now known into consideration. I guess we'll know how much I know in about 3 years, when a draft is usually evaluated This is NOT a mock draft.

Hence the word " dream" in the scenario. Dallas had a chance to take Mendenhall at #22 and took F. Jones instead also. I get that Jones is a better tandem back, and is the opposite of Barber, but I don't think he will ever be a 20-25 carry a game back. If Dallas still has trouble getting Barber signed long term, then thye wil rue this decision. Mendenahall is a every down back. On the bright side , Jones led College Football in yards per carry, and is faster.

Well the Giants will get a safety out of their 2 picks at the least. Philips was the highest rated safety for a lot of people, and Thomas is a big corner, I think fits best there . Thomas can also play bump-n-run against big receivers well, as a corner .

I am glad I didn't bet , becuase I thought Booty would go earlier , at least before the end of the 3rd. I will say this though. No other Qb went to a better situation. He is going to a west coast offense, a version of which he ran at USC, and he has a great line in place. Tavaris Jackson has yet to prove he is a consistent passer,Minnsota has great RB's, and have even improved their receivers a lot. I won't be surprised if he is starting somewhere between week 8- 10.
