If you do not see your explantions for your pick (rounds 1-4 only), either you did not send it to me or I could not find it. If you'd like, send me your explanation and i'll add it to the post. Sorry that it took me so long to post up the official results guys. I decided to take off the weekend after the draft only to find out that I had over 1,000 emails to look through. lol.
Thank you again guys to all who participated throughout the month long 7-round mock. I think it was a huge success and I hope you had as much fun as I did. Can't wait for the next one! ;)
Here are the results:
1- St. Louis Rams- Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
Whirlwind31: "The two most dire positions for GM Devaney and Coach
Spags to address are QB and the D-Line, and with holes elsewhere as
well, the franchise cannot afford to miss. With a stand-out guy such
as Suh available, they will struggle to pass on him. It's likely they
will search for a caretaker QB in free agency, and possibly select a
young guy in a later round or wait until next year. So for now, Kong
Suh is the pick."
2- Detroit Lions- Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
Lions1788: "Last season, the Lions started (36 year old) Grady Jackson
next to rookie Sammie Hill. At 36 years old I don’t think Grady
Jackson has a whole lot left in the tank. With two top tier defensive
tackles in the draft, the Lions will be looking to replace Grady
Jackson in their starting lineup. After coaching Albert Haynesworth in
Tennessee, Jim Schwartz knows what type of an impact a stud defensive
tackle can have on a defense, and he will be looking to bring a
defensive tackle with that same type of impact to Detroit. The only
other player I see the Lions taking with this pick is Ndamukong Suh.
Since Suh is gone, the pick is Gerald McCoy."
3- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
Cadillac24: "With Kong Suh and Gerald McCoy both gone, the Bucs turn
to their next player on the list. Tampa needs to desperately replace
Sabby Piscitelli (Woah, I'm suprized he didn't miss getting his name
on here...lol). Eric Berry is a surefire tackler, has good hands, and
is coming from Monte Kiffin's defense that ran the Tampa 2. Don't
forget about the coverage sacks that will be created when we have
Tanard Jackson, Aqib Talib, and Ronde Barber also back there in the
secondary. This secondary will create nightmares for opposing offenses."
4- Washington Redskins- Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
ENsDad27: "I picked Russell Okung because I believe that he is by far
the best Offensive Lineman in the draft, he fills our biggest need as
anyone who knows anything about the Washington Redskins knows that our
Line is terrible. He should be able to start immediately."
5- Minnesota Vikings- Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
LifeLongVike: "The Vikings do not have a sure thing for their
Quarterback future. The opportunity presented itself to take a
prospect that is tall, has a strong arm, three years experience in the
pro-style system, and has great character. Jimmy Clausen is rated
highly by most pro scouts and has accuracy just shy of Stafford or
Sanchez. His decision making in college has never been questioned.
His leadership skills are generally good. The cost of this prospect
was a 2nd and 3rd round draft pick this year. The Vikings have other
draft needs but not so pressing that they can't be resolved with good
later drafting or through Free Agency.
Even if Clausen busts it won't spiral the franchise into oblivion.
This was a timely risk for the franchise. One year behind Farve should
net the Vikings the Franchise guy of the future."
6- Seattle Seahawks- Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
LantermanC: "Hasselbeck was horrendous last year and I believe that
it's really hard to get an NFL caliber QB unless you select it in the
first round. I was conflicted between Clausen and Bradford, but the
trade up from the Vikings made my choice easy for me."
7- Cleveland Browns- Joe Haden, CB, Florida
TheRealSlimShady: "Joe Haden is the top CB in this draft, and the
Browns top need is CB. Seems like a good fit, right? Eric Wright is a
good corner for the Browns, but we really have no one else besides
Brandon McDonald, who is a nickel back at best. Having a lockdown
corner like Haden will free up our linebackers to blitz more and it
should really help our scoring defense."
8- Oakland Raiders- Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama
Raybin: "If Joe Haden was available, I was going to get him and give
the Raiders one of the most fearsome corner duos in the league. But,
since the Browns had taken him, I had to go to Plan B.
Plan B came down to two names: McClain or Anthony Davis, the big OT
out of Rutgers. I went with McClain because I'm not ready to give up
on Mario Henderson at LT and it's hard for me to justify spending a
top 10 pick on a right tackle. Also, it's hard to find many Raider
fans these days who don't think Kirk Morrison is miscast in his
current position at MLB. With McClain, Morrison can be shifted to the
strongside, a position he's much better suited to play. McClain is
the kind of run-stuffing middle linebacker the historically bad
Raiders run defense has been lacking for years. He's a sure tackler,
a hard-driving competitor and possessed of good character. He's
frankly everything I'd ever look for in a middle linebacker."
9- Buffalo Bills- Anthony Davis, OT, Rugters
Kaisertown: "QB is Buffalo's biggest need, but with the top guys
already taken, LT becomes the top priority. Anthony Davis has big
time upside at LT, can probably start right away (even if it has to be
at RT and always has the right side as a fall back plan if it takes
some time to add polish to his game. The Bills have some solid OL
pieces in place and adding a LT doesn't just address one position, but
it potentially ties the whole unit together and the addition of Davis
likely solidifies the OL for the long term. Derrick Morgan would have
been the only other player considered in this spot."
10- Los Angeles Jaguars- Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
Lysol: "The best WR available in this draft, Bryant is a big, fast,
well-built receiver with unparalleled hands and route running
abilities. He will be an immediate starter in Jacksonville, given the
decline of Torry Holt's physical skills. Dez Bryant makes a great
complement to Mike Sims-Walker and gives David Garrard a deep threat
who can consistently make big plays in the passing game."
11- Denver Broncos- Brandon Spikes, ILB, Florida
EJRuiz: "We wholeheartedly believe that Brandon represents a lot of
the core values that we're looking for in our football players. He is
a true leader that has put his team and school before himself on
several occasions. He's virtually an extension of the coach on the
field thanks to his superb instincts and expert knowledge of the
game. He has a nose for the ball and a knack for the big play once he
gets there. He is extremely versatile, able to play any linebacking
position in any scheme and willing to contribute on special teams if
necessary. He's a proven winner with a wealth of experience at the
highest levels of college football. We fully expect him to step into
the competition for a starting spot immediately."
12- Philedelphia Eagles (from Mia)- Derek Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
Trade: The Philadelphia Eagles trade their 1st, 2nd, 5th round pick
for the Dolphin's 12th overall pick.
Birds'n'Raiders- "The Eagles trade up to snag the best pass rusher in
the draft. Morgan brings the toolset to dominate from the Left
Defensive End position on our Pressure-43 defense. A real stud, we had
to trade up to snag him, as he was rated #5 on our Big Board."
13- San Fransisco 49ers- Bryan Buluga, OT, Iowa
Drew K: "I am going to take Bryan Bulaga with our 13th. We have huge
needs on our Oline and he would fit well as a mauler for RT."
14- Seattle Seahawks- Bryan Price, DT, UCLA
LantermanC: "I firmly believe that a defense is built through it's
line. Colin Cole was horrible, and Mebane played out of place.
Drafting Price will allow the Seahawks to move Mebane back to his
original position. The two are also good buddies so perhaps we can
sign Mebane to an extension and form a 'Williams Wall' of our own for
years to come. Either way, getting the Pac 10 defensive player of the
year is a good thing and I look forward for him to cause disruption to
allow our LB to make plays."
15- New York Giants- Earl Thomas, S, Texas
FreeBradshaw: "Thought about Spiller.... There's other RB's in the
draft and the Giants have ZERO safeties. Thomas is an impact player as
a DB so its actually BPA for the Giants."
16- Tennessee Titans- Donavan Warren, CB, Michigan
Thunder64: "I picked Warren because he is a dominant corner with good
size at 6'1. Nick Harper is aging and we can't win a Super Bowl with
Rod Hood at CB. We were 31st in the league in passing giving up 4,139
yards and 31 TDs. I just felt that Warren was better than Ras- i
17- San Fransisco 49ers- C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson
Drew K: "I am taking C.J. Spiller with our 17th. He will preserve
Gore's shelf life, give us a COP back, help with receiving AND fix our
horrible return game with one pick. Lot's of value here."
18- Pittsburgh Steelers- Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama
"I picked Cody mainly because of Casey Hampton's expiring contract and
age. He will likely step straight into the role of "space eater" due
to his natural abilities. We needed to grab him now because guys as
agile and built like him don't come around every year. The last
special NT prospect was Vince Wilfork."
19- Green Bay Packers- Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland
"Mostly for his work in Evil Dead. The guy is a hell of an athelete,
and can help on either side of the line. The Pack needs someone to
keep Jared Allen off of Rodgers, and Campbell is the best to do so."
20- Houston Texans- Taylor Mays, S, USC
"Safety is a big need in Houston. With the signing of Pollard
midseason, our defense improved but he needs a little help that the
intimidating Mays will bring."
21- Cinncinati Bengals- Damian Williams, WR, USC
"We need a legitment #2 threat and Williams provides the best hands
and route running. Also he played in a pro stlye offence so he knows
22- New England Patriots- Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas
23- Kansas City Chiefs- Dan Williams, NT, Tennessee
24- Miami Dolphins- Jerry Hughes, OLB, TCU
JP 23: "With Joey Porter on his way out and Jason Taylor's future
still up in the air, the Fins will need some fresh legs to rush the
QB. Dan Williams would have been the easy pick however, had the Chiefs
not jumped in front of me to steal him."
25- Baltimore Ravens- Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
Mr MaLoR: "Joe Flacco's biggest problem in his first two seasons has
been his failure to find players in the middle of the field. Gresham
is the player that can definitely improve this aspect for Joe. At 6'6"
and nearly 270 pounds, Gresham is a nightmare for Safeties and
Linebackers in the league. With Todd Heap falling off in the passing
game lately and becoming more of a blocking TE, Gresham will fill in
nicely on 2nd and 3rd downs. The Ravens have a run first offense and a
TE that is as gifted as Gresham can be a QB's best friend in this type
of system we run. The Ravens ignore WR for now and take the best
player available to improve their passing game."
26- Arizona Cardinals- Ricky Sapp, OLB, Clemson
27- Dallas Cowboys- Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame
Quincyyyy: "It came down to Trent Williams and Golden Tate. I figured
I could find a o-lineman later, so I went with the playmaker. Golden
Tate would make the Cowboys offense truly dangerous working the other
side of the field opposite Austin. He is a WR in a rb's body, as he
is a former rb, and is very dangerous after the catch because of
that. Coming from a pro-style offense at Notre Dame he can step in
immediately and replace Roy Williams, as I'm wagering Jerry will not
want to pick up his 9.5 million dollar option. Tate's return
abilities will also have special teams coach DeCamillis drooling."
28- San Diego Chargers- Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
29- New Yorks Jets- Jared Odrick, OLB, Penn State
"Jared Odrick was the logical pick, the best player available at an
area of need. After the disappointment that is Vernon Gholston we need
a little help on defence in terms of depth and rushing the passer. He
has good size for an end, both our main defensive ends are getting up
there in age (Ellis and Douglas), He has some nice moves, the inside
out and bull rush, has a high motor to keep getting after the QB. Has
nice length, can use his hands well, he plays tall, keeps his eyes on
the play even when engaged. Solid against the run, can get off blocks
to make the tackle has good not great speed. Think that Rex can do
some good things with Jared who would come into the rotation
immediately and make a difference."
30- Kansas City Chiefs- Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho
"Brian Waters is getting old and has really shown it. He can slide
inside to C or even move to RG where the Chiefs could use and upgrade.
Iupati is one of the best players in the draft to me. Iupati is
perfect for the Chiefs zone blocking scheme and can make an imediate
31- Seattle Seahawks- Charles Brown, OT, USC
"Going into this draft, I wanted a QB, a DT, and a LT. I got the
first two with Bradford and Price, and I felt as though Charlie Brown
was the best fit left so I had to trade up to get him. He's from USC
and he's a great zone blocker, so he's a good fit for the Seahawks.
If I couldn't trade up, I was going to trade down and hope for Fox or
Black, but I'm glad I traded up. 3 for 3 in what I wanted to
32- Indianapolis Colts- Rob Gronkowski, TE,
"With the last 3 first round caliber O-linemen flying off the board
just before the Colts pick, and no interested partners for a trade
down the Colts gamble a bit on a player returning from injury.
Gronkowski will take over Gijon Robinson's role as the in-line TE in
the 2.5WR/1.5TE set OC Tom Moore loves to use Dallas Clark in.
Gronkowski is an upgrade from Robinson in pretty much every category,
giving the Colts yet another dangerous look."
33- St. Louis Rams- Everson Griffin, DE, USC
Despite having addressed the D-Line in the first round, it would be
difficult for the Rams to settle on a second round QB, with the
remaining options not generally considered early-second talent.
Leonard Little is a short step from retirement, and a quality pass
rusher would continue with the 'building from the lines' philosophy.
Spagnuolo has gotten by with 'bargain' linebackers in the past,
although this selection could very well be a WR, but with Griffen
falling to the second round he's the pick.
34- New York Giants- Navarro Bowman, OLB, Penn State
"Thought hard about Jahvid Best but, Bowman has top 15 pick potential.
GIants could use some speed for their LB unit, Bowman does that."
35- Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Arrelious Benn, WR, Illinois
"The Bucs need a WR to give Freeman some options to pass to instead of
just Winslow. They need a consistent target and Benn provides this.
His physical ability is great and he is able to make plays after the
catch which is great. Missed out on some more DTs, but that will be
adressed later on. Also, he has had to block for a mobile QB so that
is a bonus. This solves a big need for the Bucs."
36- Oakland Raiders- Kyle Calloway, OT, Iowa
37- Kansas City Chiefs- Eric Norwood, OLB, South Carolina
"After picking two solid line players, the Chiefs needed to make a
boom with their next pick. The Chiefs have been horrible at rushing
the passer and Norwood will excel at that. After training under the
tutelage of Tamba Hali and Mike Vrabel, Norwood will be very similar
to Elvis Dumervil."
38- Washington Redskins- Jonathon Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech
"I picked Dwyer because he is a buising RB who fills a high priority
need on a Shannahan offense. He gained 1396 yd.s on 235 carries this
year, scoring 14 TD.s. He is an excellent RB who dominated in the ACC.
Washingtons current RBs are Clinton Portis who has been injured &
ineffective the last two seasons, Ladell Betts who has also been
injured & is over 30, Rock Cartwright who is a special teams player at
beast & Quintan Gainther who showed some promise at the end of the
season but is not a #1 RB. I think that Dwyer was one of the best RBs
in the draft this year & I was very happy to get him in the 2nd rd."
39- Cleveland Browns- Demytrious Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech
"The Browns passing attack was bad this year. Brady Quinn didn't have
a good year, but it is hard to blame him when his only receiver was
Mohammed Massoqoui, who would be nothing more than a #2 or #3 receiver
for most teams. Demaryious (sp) Thomas is a very tall and athletic and
could help in the short and long passing game."
40- New Orleans Saints- Sean Witherspoon, OLB, Missouri
Justin_Bobo: "Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missouri - The Saints biggest
defense is their pass rush and they have a very weak linebacking core.
Scott Fujita will only play a few more seasons, and Scott Shanle is
not starting material. An obvious gaping hole for the Saints, and Sean
Weatherspoon's speed and toughness is a perfect fit for this defense."
41- Buffalo Bills- Jean Pierre-Paul, DE/OLB, South Florida
"A quarterback was strongly considered with this choice, but at the
end of the day, I couldn't justify taking such a high bust risk like
Tebow or Snead when a 1st round talent like JPP was still available.
He's got the frame and experience to play on the left side of the
defensive line and the athletic ability to be a force. He's a raw
player, but I think that's due to a lack of experience and not any
type of character or work ethic issues. The Bills aren't a good
enough team to pass on a potential super star to fill a need."
42- Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Tyson Alualu, Cal
"This fills the huge gap in the middle of their defence. Hovan and
Sims just can't get it done. He will be a good starter for the Bucs
and will also help promising young DT's Dre Moore and Roy Miller. This
will improve their terrible run defence. Fills the Bucs biggest need
for the past 2 years."
43- Miami Dolphins- Jahvid Best, RB, Cal
"I strongly considered Brandon LaFell here but Jahvid Best was just
too much value at this point. With Ronnie Brown set to become a free
agent (UFA or RFA depending on whether there's a cap in place or not)
and Ricky Williams planning to retire after next season, RB becomes a
need for the Fins. Javid Best is the kind of game-changer who the
Dolphins are lacking. He'll immediately become a weapon in the passing
and punt return game and eventually settle into the No.2 back role.
Indentical to Reggie Bush."
44- New England Patriots- Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida
45- Denver Broncos- Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida
"Any time you get the opportunity to address an area of concern - as
the interior of our offensive line was for us going into today - with
the top prospect at his position and with the value of a fringe first-
round prospect near the middle of the second round, you have to be
satisfied with the pick. We expect Maurkice to compete for a starting
job at his more natural position of center or potentially kick out to
guard if that would allow us to put our best five blockers out on the
field at once. We are thrilled to add yet another exemplary leader to
our roster and look forward to his contributions to our franchise."
46) Detroit Lions (from NYG)- Brandon Lafell, WR, LSU
47) New England Pats- Jon Asamoah, G, Illinois
48) Carolina Panthers- Jordan Shipley, WR, Texas
"Jordan Shipley, though only 6' and 190lbs, is the right kind of
receiver that Carolina needs. His time in the Texas has given him his
signature route running skills where he is fast enough to be a key
slot WR in the NFL. His strong hands also provide another target for
the Panthers, who need a legitimate other receiving threat other than
Steve Smith (who happens to be similar in size and speed). He can
block decently for a team that follows John Fox's "run first"
philosophy and even offers returning skills for a team that hasn't
returned a kickoff/punt in a regular season game since 2003."
49) San Francisco 49ers- Mike Johnson, G, Alabama
50) Atlanta Falcons (from KC)- Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan
"Brandon Graham wasnt my first choice of the many DEs that fell to the
2nd round primarily because I project him as a better fit as a 3-4
OLB, but we will rotate him in as a pass rush specialist with Jamaal
Anderson playing the run very well, from DE but having to move inside
to DT on 3rd downs."
51) Houston Texans- Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford
"The Texans are an up and rising team with few weakspots. Slaton will
come off his sophmore slump so Gerhart will be the perfect compliment
52) Pittsburgh Steelers- Morgan Burnett, S, Georgia Tech
53) New England Pats- Selvish Capers, OT, West Virginia
54) Oakland Raiders- Arthur Jones, DT, Syracuse
55) Miami Dolphins (from PHI)- Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida
56) Detroit Lions (from GB)- Brandon Ghee, CB, Wake
57) Baltimore Ravens- Marshawn Gilyard, WR, Cincinnati
"Gilyard is the type of home run threat that the Ravens have been
lacking in the past. A workhorse on and off the field and is the
definition of a team player. Incredible open field running and
extremely tough to bring down when the first defender is going to make
the tackle because of his agility and quickness. A very fast WR, runs
with his knees high and goes North South as good as any WR in this
draft. Great person to have on your football team, as he overcame many
obstacles prior to coming to Cincinnati and was considered the heart
of the Bearcats for the last 2 years by his teammates."
58) Arizona Cardinals- Perrish Cox, CB, OSU
59) Dallas Cowboys- Vladimir Ducasse, OT/OG, UMass
"OT/OG Vladimir Ducasse has great size, arm length, power, and feet.
He was also extremely productive and dominated the competition.
Unfortunately for him that competition was Division II players.
Moreover, as a recent immigrant from Haiti he is not that well
developed and has poor technique. Despite all of this a lot of
draftniks like Todd McShay and Scott Wright have him rated as a first
day prospect (first three rounds) based on his size and potential.
And with his great work ethic and willingness to put in long hours in
the film room he should live up to that potential."
60) San Diego Chargers- Ryan Matthews, RB, Fresno State
61) New York Jets- Corey Wotton, DE/OLB, Northwestern
62) Atlanta Falcons (from KC)- Patrick Robinson, CB, FSU
"Patrick Robinson CB, sure FSU had a terrible def. this yr, but
patrick robinson is currently rated in the first round in:
He is also the #2 corner and #25 talent for scouts inc (mcshay) and
the #30 pick in Kipers mock draft. He is big enough, strong enough,
and dog-gone-it, people like him so, Robinson is the pick here."
63) New Orleans Saints- Javier Arenas, CB, Alabama
"This pick was more based on talent than need, but the Saints defense
could use plugs everywhere. This gives the Saints two great young
corners with Malcolm Jenkins and Arenas, and solid foundation for the
64) Indianapolis Colts- Daryle Washington, MLB, TCU
"MLB is an absolutely vital role in the Tampa-2, and it requires a
special type of player. Not many players have the size and physicality
to hold down the MLB spot, while at the same time being able to cover
20 yards deep in the gap between the safeties deep halves. Daryl
Washington is the type of athlete that can handle the two wildly
different jobs of a T-2 MLB and has the read-react skills to quickly
figure out which one he could be doing."
65) St. Louis Rams- Colt McCoy, QB, Texas
66) Green Bay Packers (from Lions)- Trevard Lindley, CB, Kentucky
67) Tampa Bay Bucs- Greg Hardy, DE, Ole' Miss.
68) Kansas City Chiefs- Nate Allen, S, South Florida
69) Oakland Raiders- Akwasi Owusu-Anash, CB, IUP
70) Philadelphia Eagles (from Seattle)- Chad Jones, S, LSU
71) Cleveland Browns- Ciron Black, OT, LSU
72) Pittsburg Steelers (from Bills)- Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State.
"The reasoning for picking Wilson is that I believe he fell from the
early 2nd, he could very easily compete with William Gay and Joe
Burnett for playing time in 2011, add into that he has the ability to
return punts, he was the obvious choice."
73) Miami Dolphins- Micah Johnson, ILB, Kentucky
74) Jacksonville Jaguars- Tony Pike, QB, Cincinnati
75) Chicago Bears- Jason Fox, OT, Miami
76) New York Giants- Lamarr Houston, DT, Texas
77) Tennessee Titans- George Selvie, OLB, USF
"I made the pick because with VandenBosh being a free agent we need a
good pass rushing DE."
78) Carolina Panthers- Eric Decker, WR, Minnesota
"He was to good to pass up and Shipley projects more as a slot WR.
Also he's basically a young Mushin Muhammed."
79) San Francisco 49ers- Reshad Jones, S
80) Denver Broncos- Tim Tebow, QB, Florida
"We did not go into this draft expecting to invest an early pick in
the quarterback position, but that's only because we never imagined we
could acquire a player of Tim's caliber at this point. I think his
record speaks for itself, but I'd like to reiterate some of it's
implications: he's the consumate leader, supremely accomplished, as
physical as anyone at his position ever and dedicated to becoming the
best player he can be. What he has can't be taught and what he lacks
can be learned. We fully expect him to contribute in a limited role
immediately and develop into a starter over time."
81) Kansas City Chiefs (via trade with falcons)- J.D. Walton, C, Baylor
"J.D. Walton from Baylor is a great run blocker and a solid
centerpiece for the Chiefs to continue their rebuild of their
offensive line. Walton will provide competition for Rudy Niswanger at
the very least ,and if he lives up to his potential, he will become a
solid starter for years to come. Walton and Iupati create a dominant
inside presence allowing Jamaal Charles to continue to prove he is one
of the best in the league and to help Matt Cassel in his development
into a great quarterback."
82) Buffalo Bills (from Steelers)- Jevan Snead, QB, Ole' Miss
"The Bills don't have a QB on their roster who even resembles an
option as a starter and Jevan Snead might have the single best pure
arm in the draft and that alone makes him a good fit in Buffalo's
cold, windy stadium. People view Ole Miss as a really good team, but
Snead didn't really have great options to work with this past season.
Dexter McCluster is dynamic, but not a WR. He didn't have options to
throw to outside of Shay Hodge and I believe that most of his INTs
were a result of forcing throws to Hodge or other covered WRs as
opposed to being unable to read a defense and not seeing LBs and
safeties moving into passing lanes. Snead also has rather underrated
footwork and throwing mechanics."
83) Houston Texans- Dominique Franks, CB, Oklahoma
84) Cincinnati Bengals- Darrell Stuckey, S, Kansas
"The Bengals need a SS with Roy Williams contract expiring, and our
safties were our holes this season."
85) Cincinnati Bengals- Danario Alexander, WR, Missouri
"With the addition of Damian Williams we need a have a good recieve
core. Alexander will take the role of the late Chris Henry."
86) Green Bay Packers- Jermaine Cunningham, DE/OLB, Florida
87) Philadelphia Eagles- AJ Edds, OLB, Iowa
88) Baltimore Ravens- Syd'Quan Thompson, CB, Cal
"Thompson has a nose for the ball and great timing on breaking up
passes. Even though he is slightly smaller than what most teams want
in a CB, he is fearless and willing to throw his body out at any time
to make a play on defense. A better 1 on 1 tackler then people give
him credit for. Ravens get depth at CB and one of the best athletes in
the draft playing in their Nickel and Dime packages."
89) Arizona Cardinals- Pat Angerer, ILB, Iowa
90) Dallas Cowboys- Devin McCourty, CB, Rugters
"This pick was more of a BPA pick. I had CB Devin McCourty rated much
higher than anyone else so I took him. He has the potential to be a
very good starting caliber corner, and in today's passing league you
can never have too many good corners. Plus our CB depth chart is kind
of sketchy. You have Newman, whom is old, Mike Jenkins, Orlando
Scandrick, then Alan Ball who splits time between safety and corner.
McCourty will compete with Scandrick to be Newman's successor, and in
the mean time help the team on special teams, as he played on every
special teams unit at Rutgers."
91) San Diego Chargers- Torrell Troup NT, UCF
92) Cleveland Browns- Major Wright, S, Florida
93) Kansas City Chiefs- Jeremy Williams, WR, Tulane
"Jeremy Williams from Tulane is a smaller school prospect with an NFL
body, mentality, and skill set. Williams should become a solid second
receiver while being trained behind Chris Chambers and will hopefully
complement Dwayne Bowe. A possession receiver with good hands,
something the Chiefs desperately need, Williams also doubles as a
94) New Orleans Saints- John McNeil, C, Tennessee
95) Indianapolis Colts- Jared Veldheer, OT, Hillsdale
"The Colts finally get the OT help that they need. Veldheer will need a bit of adjustment time, but has great potential. At 6'8" 320lbs with excellent athleticism he could develop on either side of the OL."
96) St. Louis- Roddrick Muckelroy, LB, Texas
"The Rams fill arguably their 2nd biggest need in the fourth round
with an active Sam LB whom will be good in coverage as well as a rush
97) Detroit Lions- Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama
98) Tampa Bay Bucs- Roger Saffold, OT, Indiana
"Tampa needs some decent players at tackle. Saffold played great in
the East-West Shrine game against some tough competition. He should
try to fight for the starting job at RT with Jeremy Trueblood."
99) Atlanta Falcons (from KC)- Harry Coleman, S, LSU
100) Washington Redskins- Sergio Render, OG, Virginia Tech
"I drafted Sergio Render because I feel that he is a very good fit in
Shannahans ZBS. I think that he will be a good solid addition at the
Guard position. He is intelligent, a leader & IMO undervalued. At 6-3,
319 lb.s he is good sized for a guard but still has good speed at 5.20
in the 40. He was 2nd team All ACC & ACC Lineman of the week in week
12. The Redskins O-Line is easily one of the worst in the league & tho
unspectacular I think that Sergio Render would be a good pick & a
101) New Orleans (from SEA)- Vince Oghobaase, DT, Duke
102) Cleveland Browns- Mitch Petrus, OG, Arkansas
103) Cinncinati Bengals (from Oak)- John Jerry, OG, Ole' Miss
"With Bobbie Williams getting up in and age and with an expiring
contract the Bengals need to develop someone for the future."
104) Buffalo Bills- Mike Neal, DT, Purdue
"Aside from an aging Marcus Stroud, DT isn't really a big need for the
Bills. Yes, they had a terrible run defense, but Kyle Williams is a
Pro Bowl alternate for a reason and Marcus Stroud still has a little
gas in the tank after a great career. But the strongest player on
Purdue's roster represents good value for a Bills team that is in
complete rebuild mode. It's time for Buffalo to invest in the
trenches and Neal is a DT who can contribute against both the run and
105) Minnesota Vikings (from JAC)- Jerome Murphy, CB, South Florida
106) Chicago Bears- Austin Lane, DE, Murray State
107) Miami Dolphins- Dezmon Briscoe, WR, Kansas
108) Tennessee Titans- Myron Rolle, S, Florida State
"I picked Myron Rolle because he is a good overall athlete and can
play basically anywhere on defense."
109) Carolina Panthers- Alex Carrington, DT, Arkansas St.
110) San Francisco 49ers- Brandon Lang, DE/OLB, Troy
111) Denver Broncos- Joe McKnight, RB, USC
112) Green Bay (from NYG)- O'Brien Schofield, DE/OLB, Wisconsin
113) Buffalo Bills (from Pitt)- Shawn Lauvao, OG, Arizona State
"Lauvao is yet another strength/athleticism freak of Samoan decent.
Buffalo had serious injury issues along the OL and Lauvao is
potentially a talent upgrade as well. The Bills have Andy Levitre
entrenched at guard, but the other guard spot is up for grabs after
Eric Wood's devastating broken leg. The Bills also lack a long term
solution at center, so a healthy Wood could move back to his college
position, avoiding a log jam at guard."
114) Atlanta Falcons- Dennis Pita, TE, BYU
115) Houston Texans- Jeff Byers, OG, USC
116) New England Patriots- Montorio Hardesty, RB, Tennessee
117) Cincinnati Bengals- Anthony McCoy, TE, USC
"If you watched any Bengals football this year you would have known
that the TE was our downfall virtually elimating that from the offense."
118) Philadelphia Eagles- LeGarrette Blount, RB, Oregon
119) Atlanta Falcons (from GB)- Darryl Sharpton, ILB, Miami
120) Baltimore Ravens- Riley Cooper, WR, Florida
121) Arizona Cardinals- Sam Young, OT, Notre Dame
122) Dallas Cowboys- Cam Thomas, NT, North Carolina
"Cam Thomas is the prototypical big body NT. He showed up at the
Senior Bowl weighing 331, but carried his weight well and tied Odrick
with the longest arms among the d-lineman. He may have to be coached
up on his technique some, but he can hold up against double teams and
despite his weight he is good on his feet. He should come in and
immediately replace Siavii as the backup NT, and maybe eventually
allow Ratliff to move to DE."
123) San Diego Chargers- Myron Lewis, S, Vanderbilt
124) Philadelphia Eagles Carlton Mitchell, WR, South Florida
125) Minnesota Vikings- Anthony Dixon, RB, Mississippi State
126) New Orleans Saints- Dekota Watson, OLB, Florida State
127) Indianapolis Colts- Amari Spievey, CB, Iowa
"Former 2nd round pick Tim Jennings never lived up to his potential
for more than brief flashes. Former 1st round pick Marlin Jackson is
coming off torn ACLs in back to back seasons. Both will hit free
agency this offseason leaving the Colts with absolutely nothing behind
established #1 Kelvin Hayden and promising rookies Jerraud Powers and
Jacob Lacey. Spievey could play the dime or nickel from day one in a
cover-2 scheme and is a great special teamer."
