- If I added players twice, just tell me. It's 5 in the morn, I'm on a energy drink and I coming down at this point. Give me feedback! Zzzzz
Carolina- Marcel Dareus, DT, Alabama
- Clausen got a win, I think they at least give it another year for him. The D should get a nice upgrade in this draft. Carolina's DE have actually had solid seasons but DT has been a position of struggle. I feel Dareus is the best DT in the draft for the 4-3 and could help right away from a run stopping and pass rushing standpoint.
Denver- Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
- I believe the next head coach WILL have to love Tim Tebow ( AKA: I wanna see if Jon Gruden wasn't BSing us when he said he loved Tebow) so Luck's out. Champ Bailey already made noise about leaving Denver next season, I see them replacing him. Peterson is considered a once in a decade guy so he must be the pick.
Cincinnati- A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
- Real quick question: Do you know what you get with Bengals season tickets? ONE free box of popcorn.
If I was A.J. Green, I would not go to Cincy but with T.O. oddly being kicked out and Chad Johnson being ehh, tradeable at this point, I wouldn't be shocked if Cincy dropped Owens, moved Ocho for later picks and grab Green, who we can all agree is probably the 3rd best WR coming out since 2000 ( Larry Fitz, Calvin Johnson)
Arizona- Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
You know Zona is happy. Luck is seen as the next Peyton Manning. I like his game and believe he can start RIGHT away. I will say this about the NFC west picks: It's not about 2-3 years from now, it's about today. That division is winnable at this point for any team, if your Arizona: You can take Luck and then have a legit shot of winning a division.
Detroit- DeQuan Bowers, DE, Clemson
If he's here- You have to take Bowers and here's why: Suh is a satellite player. I feel if you place good to solid players around him on defense, they should be getting tons of chances for sacks, TFL's and INT's. Bowers is a beast and I feel could be a star in the NFL.
Buffalo- Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
The Bills are perfect for Cam Newton for many reasons. This is why in my honest opinion:
The Bills have not alot of pieces to build with. I think the Bills should go with Cam Newton. He's a potential franchise QB who has that "It" factor in college. 12-0 in the SEC, big wins against Alabama (come on, you thought they lose), South Carolina (twice) and LSU (the single reason they won that game). He reminds me so much of Daunte Culpepper. I feel Buffalo is the ONLY team in the NFL that can afford to draft him and sit him for a year. If you want to excite the crowd mid season, you can make a Cam package and bring him in Kordell Stewart style. Also, that whole "he's raw" thing is a little overblown. The man's not Tebow now. He's a better passer and a stronger runner.
With that being said: I could see the Bills take Amukamura or even Farley here. That defense is terrible.
San Francisco- Prince Amukamura, CB, Nebraska
My dad is a 49ers fan. I made this pick for him. The 49ers can look for a QB OR go with the guy they didn't want to get last season in Donovan McNabb. I say, you give the McNabb the money to bring him in and then go help the secondary. Amukamura is seen as a "can't miss guy" by many. I'm curious to see how good he really is at the next level.
Dallas- Nick Farley, DE, Auburn
That Dallas defense is worse then the Bills' D. Why? The Cowboys actually have paid free agents to be good. The Bills have drafted most of that D so I give them a pass. I think Farley is a hot name. I seen him in the top 10 for a while now, I think with the Cowboys potentially at this spot: It gives him a solid drop point.
Washington- Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
Someone who's reading is like: "ZOMG, NOOB didn't give the Redskins a QB. LOL". Here's my thinking: Mike Shanahan is a crazy man. I honestly think he's crazy enough to look at Matt Flynn and say "That guy could be the answer". My mindless prediction: Matt Flynn goes to Washington and the Skins go to the well and add a WR. Malcolm Kelly is soft as butta and Devin Thomas is gone. I doubt Moss returns so Julio Jones gets to jump in right away and become the #1 WR. ( Excuse me, Jones or T.O. because Shanny is crazy like that)
Houston- Jake Locker, QB, Washington
One of my " I like it on paper, make sense if dozen things happen" picks. I think when push comes to shove: Bill Cowher will be Houston's new coach. Why? Well $$$ and the fact this would be Houston's first chance to show: Their tired of getting 65 on their test. They have the numbers 8-8 and 7-9. Matt Schaub is a alright QB but he's not what I would call: a winner.
If Cowher falls in love with a QB, I think Locker would be the guy. I still LOVE locker as a prospect and think he could be great. I saw defense picked here and cannot be upset with that either.
Minnesota- Robert Quinn, DE, North Carolina
Steal. Ray Edwards is leaving and I think had Quinn played this year, he's a top 5 pick who everyone loves.
Cleveland- Justin Blackman, WR, Oklahoma State
In my draft, Blackman comes out and someone falls in love with him. The team who needs a QB more then anything. I think Blackman could have some potential Pierre Garcon in him (09 version) and could be really good. I don't think he's a #1 but he's gonna be good.
Seattle- Ryan Mallet, QB, Arkansas
Someone is gonna make me LOL when they say: You know, I think Carroll is gonna keep Whitehurst and Hasselback next season. Mallet is here, he probably would have been a Seahawk last year if he came out. I think Pete grabs him and sits him for a year to get him adjusted to the playbook and hope they can get a OT to protect him.
Tennessee- Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
The Titans need help on defense. After adding Morgan last season, I think you have to go LB here. To me, I think there's potential they fall in love with Bruce Carter and pray he falls to them in round 3 but I say: Go with the player who's already there.
New England - (from Oak)- Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
Patriots do things like this: Add talent on defense, worry about it later. Devin McCourty has been a stud while Darius Butler is buming it out on the bench. Harris is a stud who, other then one game, has been solid everytime I seen him.
If Harris can lock Floyd down in the Sun Bowl, I think he goes this high.
Miami- Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
The Dolphins will 9/10 times, go into next year without Ronnie Brown AND Ricky WIlliams. I think they move away from the wildcat and go more conventional. I like the way Ingram runs and feels he could be a very productive RB who can be counted on for 25 carries a game.
San Diego- Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M
I feel like I'm getting this pick right. I don't know any good pass rushers on the Bolts besides Phillips. I think Miller could come in and help that pass rushing. Also, is Larry English M.I.A? What's up with him? I remember people considering him a great prospect. Let's get some sack Mr. English.
English has 3 sacks this year....that's a good start.
Jacksonville- Adrien Clayborn, DE, Iowa
I know, I know: Jacksonville's new GM likes " players who are good character guys". That's good but at some point, you need a couple rough guys on the roster because they are talented. I think the Jags DE's combined for 6.5 sacks this year. Clayborn could be a instant upgrade to me.
Tampa Bay- Cameron Jordan, DE, California
The Bucs could use some help on DE positions after adding Price and McCoy at DT. I expect the Bucs to grab Jordan, the rising star of the draft who can help right away. The Glazers are cheap, so there hoping taking him this high, he would be so shocked that they won't look at the contract number they offer him.
In all seriousness, Jordan is a good talent, should be able to help right away. You can't get to the QB, your limited as a defense.
Green Bay- Akeem Ayers, OLB, UCLA
As a Packer fan myself, I find myself battling who to pick. On one hand, we should grab a CB. Woodson is good but he's ready to be a safety. Tramon Williams is a #1 CB and we could use someone opposite of him. The other hand says: Grab more OL help. The Packers took Bulaga last season, why not add a Costanzo or Carimi? I ended up with Ayers. Why? Clay Matthews is a beast. Opposite of Matthews, the Packers could upgrade that position. Brad Jones was good as a rook, average as a Soph. I think Ayers could provide Matthews a pass rushing partner that could help Green Bay get even more pressure on QB's.
St. Louis- Johnathan Baldwin, WR, Pitt
Mark my words: The St Louis Rams will become a great offense again. Sam Bradford is in a funk ( similar to Ryan in 08 when they made the playoffs) and will be one and done. Once that happens, Bradford will bounce back. I believe Baldwin has been underrated and could be a top WR in the NFL.
Indianapolis- Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi St
The Colts need offensive line help. The fans want it because Manning cannot throw the ball anymore because the pass rushing in past weeks have been too tough on him. The problem with the Colts is they have no rock on the OL besides Saturday. If they had a OT they could just lock in, I think they would be better.
Oh: I was kidding about the Manning part. Heaven forbid: He struggles for a period of games. I'm sorry, he's overrated to me. I personally rather have Rivers and Brady over him.
Kansas City- Joesph Barksdale, OT, LSU
I ask KC fans this ( because I can barely watch their team, no disrespect): Has Brandon Albert and Barry Richardson been good enough to make you think: NO WAY HE'S REPLACEABLE? I'm guessing no. Barksdale is a elite OT who doesn't get respect. I like him as a prospect and anytime you have a chance to upgrade the lines, do it. There will be CB's and WR's and later rounds/free agency.
New York Giants- Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame
I see a team giving Kevin Boss like a 4 year, 30 million dollar deal. My prediction: Cleveland does that. Without Boss, you have a Travis Beckum. Let's say that again: Travis Beckum. In Madden, he's pretty good but that's it. If Rudolph comes out, he will be a steal. I think the Giants jump on that and grab him.
New Orleans- Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon St
I know some people will have problems with this pick but I ask this: If the Saints wanted a player of Jones' caliber, can they get him at the same spot in round 2? I don't think so. Jones fits the mold of great college player, who's either too slow or lacks something small that people overstate. Brandon Spikes was like that and what do you know? He lead the Pats in tackles before those issues.
(I edited this pick)
Chicago- DeMarcus Love, OT, Arkansas
The Bears need OL help. When you move around OL from OT, OG, OC and play Russian roulette...I have nothing to say.
New York Jets- Allen Bailey, DE, Miami
When your jumping on Trevor Pryce like it's 2003, you know you need some DL help. I think Allen Bailey's stock is shrinking because Miami sucked this year. Bailey could be a solid DE who can help provide pass rushing slightly and some run defensive ability.
Baltimore- Janoris Jenkins, CB, Florida
I think the Ravens land Champ Bailey in free agency. If so, this pick becomes even more of a CB for me. Jenkins to me, is a top 10 pick. Go watch him play vs Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina: Jenkins played decently against all those teams. With this, the Ravens have two young CB's ( Webb, Jenkins) and the older CB who can teach them a thing or two.
Philadelphia- Anthony Costanzo, OT, Boston College
Safe offensive lineman win. You laugh, they play 10-15 seasons. I think Winston Justice is replaceable. Costanzo is that classic safe OT who will never get pro bowl love but every time your team wins, he's the key piece on the offensive line.
Pittsburgh- Cameron Hayward, DE, Ohio St
I love the 3-4 defense. If I was a coach, I'd run the 3-4. Just throwing that out there. Hayward seems like a classic "elite talent who doesn't do one thing thus he drops" guy. I believe Hayward is a top 15 pick, but because he will never get 8 sacks in his career and will just dominate the run, the Steelers can wrap him up here.
Atlanta- Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
John Abraham is solid, older, but still solid. If your the Falcons, you have so many explosive offenses in the NFC like Philly, Green Bay, Giants (at times), St Louis/Tampa Bay ( starting next season) and New Orleans. You need to get to the QB. Kerrigan might not start but hey, anytime you can get some cheap pass rushing, do it.
New England- Tyron Smith, OT, USC
Smart teams build on those lines. The Patriots already took defense, now lets grab a offensive linemen we can coach up and unleash in a couple season. Smith is a steal at this spot considering he could have gone top 5 in 2012. Belichick is a player and haters gonna hate.
