7-round mock with comps

I apologize ahead of time for this being slightly boring.  I had an interesting mock going until free agency hit.  Then everyone fell into the usual places.  I really wanted to not give Haden to Cleveland and Brown to Indy among others, but the picks fell that way.  Where appropriate, I distinguished between left tackles/right tackles, strong safeties/free safeties, etc. because I think that is important.  Mostly left this out for backups.  Provided a few explanations, but wanted to keep this as short as possible.

This was insanity.  I'm never doing 7 rounds again.

 

1ST ROUND:
 
1. St. Louis Rams - Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
 
2. Detroit Lions - Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
 
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
 
4. Washington Redskins - Russell Okung, LT, Oklahoma State
 
5. Kansas City Chiefs - Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
 
6. Seattle Seahawks - Derrick Morgan, RDE, Georgia Tech
 
7. Cleveland Browns - Joseph Haden, CB, Florida
 
8. Oakland Raiders - Bruce Campbell, LT, Maryland
 
9. Buffalo Bills - James Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
 
10. Denver Broncos - Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama
 
11. Jacksonville Jaguars - Earl Thomas, FS, Texas
 
12. Miami Dolphins - Dan Williams, NT, Tennessee
 
13. San Francisco 49ers  - C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson
 
14. Seattle Seahawks - Trent Williams, LT, Oklahoma
 
15. New York Giants - Bryan Bulaga, RT, Iowa
 
16. Tennessee Titans - Jason Pierre-Paul, LDE/RDE, South Florida
 
17. San Francisco 49ers - Brandon Graham, OLB, Michigan
BPA - Neither Lawson or Haralson are all-pros.
 
18. Pittsburgh Steelers - Mike Iupati, G, Idaho
 
19. Atlanta Falcons - Everson Griffen, LDE, USC
 
20. Houston Texans - Brian Price, DT, UCLA
 
21. Cincinnati Bengals - Taylor Mays, FS, USC
A good fit for Mays - a good defense with a serviceable FS already in place.
 
22. New England Patriots - Jared Odrick, DE, Penn State
 
23. Green Bay Packers - Jerry Hughes, OLB, TCU
 
24. Philadelphia Eagles - Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
Sheldon Brown did not learn from Lito Sheppard's case.
 
25. Baltimore Ravens - Sean Weatherspoon, ILB, Missouri
The future captain of the defense when Ray Lewis is done.
 
26. Arizona Cardinals - Anthony Davis, LT, Rutgers
The Ravens stole their guy.  No ILB or OLB worth the pick here, not with Spikes' 40 time.
 
27. Dallas Cowboys - Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
Dallas is the most likely team to go pure BPA in the 1st round.
 
28. San Diego Chargers - Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama
 
29. New York Jets -Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame
 
30. Minnesota Vikings -Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers
 
31. Indianapolis Colts - Charles Brown, LT, USC
 
32. New Orleans Saints - Carlos Dunlap, LDE, Florida

2. DET - Ghee, CB, Wake Forest
 
3. TB - Benn, WR, Illinois
 
4. KC -Saffold, RT, Indiana
 
5. WAS - Norwood, OLB, South Carolina
Switching to the 3-4 makes no sense for this team.  Carter is not going to transition well to OLB at his age.
 
6. CLE - Burnett, FS, Georgia Tech
 
7. OAK - Atkins, DT, Georgia
 
8. SD from SEA - Matthews, RB, Fresno State
 
9. BUF - Thomas, NT, North Carolina
 
10. TB from CHI - Franks, CB, Oklahoma
 
11. MIA - Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
Parcells loves talented tight ends - in an early mock I had Gresham going to Miami in the 1st.
 
12. NE from JAC- Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech
 
13. DEN - Pouncey, C, Florida
 
14. NYG - Houston, DT, Texas

6. PHI from SEA - Stuckey, SS, Kansas
 
7. CLE - Misi, OLB, Utah
 
8. BUF - Veldheer, LT, Hillsdale
Buffalo would prefer a LT ready to start, but the draft did not fall that way once they took Clausen.
 
9. MIA - Gibson, OLB, Ohio State
 
10. CHI - Walton, C/G, Baylor
 
11. JAC - Angerer, MLB, Iowa
 
12. NYG - Tate, RB, Auburn
I dislike making this pick.  But their need picks are reaches here.
 
13. TEN - Robinson, CB, Florida State
 
14. CAR - Gilyard, WR, Cincinnati
Two WRs in a row?  It's that much of a need.

18. PIT - Jones, DE, Syracuse

22. GB - Fox, LT, Miami
 
23. PHI - Muckelroy, SLB, Texas
 
24. ARI from BAL - Spikes, ILB, Florida
 
25. ARI - Lindley, CB, Kentucky
People hate this guy because he had a bad Senior Bowl.  But there is a reason he was once a high 2nd.
 
26. DAL - Wright, FS, Florida
 
27. SD - Lee, ILB, Penn State
Not many fans' priority, but the combine showed he is healthy, and he is a good value here.

29. MIN - Joseph, DT, East Carolina
 
30. IND - Arenas, CB/KR, Alabama
 
31. NO - Watson, WLB, Florida State

7. CLE - Gerhart, RB, Stanford
 
8. OAK - Jefferson, CB, Fresno State
 
9. BUF - Williams, WR, Tulane 
 
10. JAC - Tebow, QB, Florida
Is this pick less offensive or humorous in the 4th?  They really do need a backup QB.
 
11. CHI - Coleman, FS, Ohio State
 
12. MIA - Lewis, FS, Vanderbilt
 
13. TEN - Brown, QB, West Virginia
Kerry Collins will not be playing much longer.

4. WAS - Skelton, QB, Fordham 
 
5. KC - Dickson, TE, Oregon
 
6. CLE - Wootton, DE, Northwestern

12. JAC - Te'o-Nesheim, DE, Washington
