Mock Draft v. 3.0

So, with one week left until the real thing, here is my (hopefully) final mock draft:

1.      Lions- Jason Smith, OT, Baylor

            I’ve had Matt Stafford slated into this pick since Sam Bradford announced he was

            staying in college, but why not take the sure thing here and take Bradford or

            McCoy next year?

2.      Rams- Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia

            They need a tackle, and with Smith gone, they go with the second best available.

3.      Chiefs- Aaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest

            I’m thinking this is as close to a lock as there is in a draft. That is, if Detroit or St.

            Louis don’t take him.

4.      Seahawks- Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech

            I just don’t see them going QB here, and a Crabtree-Houshmandzadeh-Burelson

            would look good for Hasselbeck. However, if Smith, Monroe, and Curry go

            1-2-3, I could see the Hawks trading down and looking for a RB.

5.      Browns- Brian Orakpo, DE, Texas

            This pick hasn’t changed since my first mock. The Browns need help on defense.

6.      Bengals- Andre Smith, OT, Alabama

            Protecting Carson Palmer is key for this team, but Maclin could be an option here.

7.      Raiders- Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri

            Maclin is the second best receiver in the draft, and the Raiders will complete a

            Russell-McFadden-Maclin trio.

8.      Jaguars- Matt Stafford, QB, Georgia

            If the Lions take Smith, there could be a very long wait for Stafford and Sanchez.

            The Jaguars take the possibly best value pick of the draft in Matt Stafford.

9.      Packers- B.J. Raji, DT, Boston College

            This guy is good. The Packers will take advantage of Raji’s mistakes, and stop his

            fall.

10.  49’s- Mark Sanchez, QB, USC

            The 49’s made a push for Kurt Warner over the offseason, and Sanchez will take over the most disappointing position on this squad.

11.  Bills- Aaron Maybin, LB, Penn State

            Maybin is a good, versatile player from Linebacker U. I have had this pick happening from day one.

12.  Broncos- Everette Brown, DE, Florida State

            With the first of their two first round picks, I think the Broncos will go with Brown after their top two choices (Sanchez and Raji) are off the board.

13.  Redskins- Robert Ayers, DE, Tennessee

            The run on defensive front seven players affects the Skins drafting, and they go with Ayers.

14.  Saints- Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois

            This is another pick I’ve had, and I’ll keep with it. I think the Saints’ biggest need is at corner.

15.  Texans- Clay Matthews, LB, USC

            His uncle Bruce Matthews is a linebacker coach in Houston, so Matthews could blossom in a perfect environment.

16.  Chargers- Rey Maualuga, LB, USC

            Maualuga seems to be a perfect fit for the Chargers, and he could be a boom-or-bust type of player.

17.  Jets- Josh Freeman, QB, Kansas State

            Freeman isn’t necessarily a great QB, but he is better than Kellen Clemens, Erik Ainge, or Brett Ratliff.

18.  Broncos- Peria Jerry, DT, Ole Miss

            This may be a bit of a stretch here, but the glaring need for a NT is Denver is inescapable.

19.  Buccaneers- Brian Cushing, LB, USC

            I’ve had Freeman going here, but if the Jets take him, look for the Bucs to replace (or attempt to replace) Derrick Brooks.

20.  Lions- James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State

            The Lions need a fearless, big-time MLB. Laurinaitis will bring that intensity back to the Lions defense.

21.  Eagles- Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia

            The future of this pick is unsure with Philly contemplating another deal for a big name WR, but with Westbrook turning 30, this is the pick if they stay put.

22.  Vikings- Percy Harvin, WR, Florida

            Heyward-Bey could be the pick, as well as Oher. For now, however, I think Harvin will really complement Adrian Peterson.

23.  Patriots- Connor Barwin, LB, Cincinnati

            Barwin is the most versatile player in the draft, and some have compared him to Mike Vrabel. Who better to have a Vrabel-like player than the team that once had Vrabel?

24.  Falcons- Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Oklahoma State

            Pettigrew is an exceptional talent at the TE position, and Matt Ryan will quickly find just how exceptional.

25.  Dolphins- Malcom Jenkins, CB, Ohio State

            Jenkins has had a pretty huge fall from glory since January. I could see him teaming up with Gibril Wilson in Miami.

26.  Ravens- Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Maryland

            Heyward-Bey could go one pick ahead of Baltimore to Miami, but if he falls this   far, Baltimore would be delighted to have him. I have had Laurinaitis at this pick, but it seems like the Lions will take him at 20.

27.  Colts- Evander Hood, DT, Missouri

            With the top two DTs off the board, the Colts look to improve the inside of their line with Hood.

28.  Bills- Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss

            The Bills took Maybin with their first pick, and a quality tackle is always a good way to spend a pick.

29.  Giants- Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers

            The Giants need a WR, and there is a big possibility that they trade this pick for one. But, if they keep the pick, Hakeem Nicks or Britt would both be good picks.

30.  Titans- Darius Butler, CB, Connecticut

            Nick Harper’s career is getting close to ending, and the Titans take the third best corner here.

31.  Cardinals- Chris “Beanie” Wells, RB, Ohio State

            The Cardinals are expected to release Edgerrin James, and Wells would be a great complement to Hightower. This would be a great value.

32.  Steelers- Max Unger, C, Oregon

            Unger would help with their offensive line’s depth. It’s about the only thing they can improve.
