Two Round Mock With a Couple of Trades

Trade #1 - Dallas trades it's #9 overall to New England for it's #17 overall, #60 overall, and #92 overall. 

Trade #2 - Buffalo trades it's 2nd (#34 overall), it's first fourth rounder (#99 overall) and 6th rounder (#164 overall) to Atlanta for their first round pick (#27 overall). 

First Round 

1. Carolina - Da'Quan Bowers DE - The #1 pick, in my mind, is Fairley's or Bowers to lose.  Who Carolina picks might come down to offseason workouts and interviews, and I think Bowers will edge Fairley out.

2. Denver - Nick Fairley DT - No brainer pick if available.

3. Buffalo - Patrick Peterson CB - This is the same team that picked C.J. Spillers at #10 overall and didn't play him much.  Who knows what to predict.  

4. Cincinnati - A.J. Green WR - The campaign to appease Carson Palmer is culminated with this amazing WR

5. Arizona - Von Miller OLB - Arizona adds a much needed edge rusher.

6. Cleveland - Marcel Dareus DT - The Browns lose out on A.J. Green but find a worthwhile alternative. 

7. San Francisco - Prince Amukamara CB - Tough, physical, and in the mold of a Harbaugh player.  

8. Tennessee - Blaine Gabbert QB - This pick will get a lukewarm reception from Titan's fans but Gabbert has to go somewhere early and Tennessee is as good a fit as any.

9. New England (from Dallas) - Robert Quinn OLB - New England lands a very solid player and makes a trade with Dallas that benefits both teams.  

10. Washington - Julio Jones WR - After deciding on a QB through trade or free agency, Washington ignores their defensive needs and takes the best player available.  

11. Houston - Aldon Smith OLB - With no CB or S that appeals here, Houston takes this stud for their new 3-4.  

12. Minnesota - Cam Newton QB - The Vikings become an even tougher team to defend with this pick.

13. Detroit - Nate Solder OT - The Lions pass on any CB and take someone they hope can protect Stafford.  

14. St. Louis - Cameron Jordan DE - With no stud WR still available, the Rams take the best defensive player available.

15. Miami - Ryan Mallet QB - Miami can't resist Mallet's strong arm and take a risk with a questionable QB

16. Jacksonville - Ryan Kerrigan DE - The Jags can't get to the QB and Kerrigan can, even better than Adrian Clayborn.

17. Dallas - Gabe Carimi OT - Dallas lands the player they were targeting all along.  Solid pick, and Romo is very happy.

18. San Diego - J.J. Watt DE - The Chargers very good defense just gets better.  Scary thought.  

19. New York GiantsJimmy Smith CB - A CB who is 6'2" over 200lbs and can run a low 4.4?  His college stats were impressive too.  He won't last much longer than this.  

20. Tampa Bay - Adrian Clayborn DE - Though I am not a big fan of Clayborn's, his physical talents and production are hard to overlook. He will be a solid 4-3 DE

21. Kansas City - Akeem Ayers OLB - The Chiefs pick a guy who has a lot of raw ability but was miscast at UCLA.  Ayers can do just about anything.  Can rush, cover, and tackle, though plays soft often.

22. Indianapolis - Anthony Castonzo OT - The Colts offensive line needs more help than Rosie O'donnell at a beauty pageant.

23. Philadelphia - Derek Sherrod OT - Very good OT here who can step in immediately.  

24. New Orleans - Mark Ingram RB - The Saints are pleasantly surprised to see Ingram fall to them.  For my money, I would get rid of Reggie Bush.

25. Seattle - Cameron Heyward DE - The Seahawks land some much needed help up front and pass on Locker in the first.

26. Baltimore - Jonathan Baldwin WR - The Ravens draft a stud WR to "grow" with Flacco.  

27. Buffalo (from Atlanta) - Justin Houston OLB - Buffalo jumps the Jets, the Pats, and Green Bay and lands a very solid 3-4 OLB.  

28. New England - Mike Pouncey OG - No more concerns with LG.  

29. Chicago - Tyron Smith OT - Tyron Smith falls because of his size, or lack thereof.  

30. New York JetsRahim Moore S - The Jets, believe it or not, take another DB, this time hoping for a playmaker. 

31. Green Bay - Ben Ijalena OT - From what I have read, Ijalena can play tackle or guard effectively.  

32. Pittsburgh - Brandon Harris CB - The Steelers land a decent CB to add to their already amazing defense.  

2nd Round 

33. New England - Cory Liuget DT - A quality 5 technique and the third quality player for the Patriots in this draft.  

34. Atlanta - Kyle Rudolph TE - Atlanta lands the player they targeted all along, and they get him in the second.  

35. Cincinnati - Stephen Paea DT - The Bengals forsake greater needs elsewhere and take the best player available

36. Denver - Phil Taylor DT - The "new" Phil Taylor is a ripped 330 and can be very effective in Denver's new 4-3. 

37. Cleveland - Titus Young WR - The Browns attempt to give Colt McCoy a new deep threat.  However, can Colt throw deep?

38. Arizona - Aaron Williams CB - Arizona lands a decent CB to help shore up their woeful team.  They probably go the free agent route for QB.

39. Tennessee - Leonard Hankerson WR - With this solid WR, the Titans have the makings of a solid team, on paper.

40. Dallas - Steve Wisniewski C - Dallas adds the best center in the draft, and at #40, a good value.  

41. Washington - Martez Wilson LB - Wilson can rush the QB or play on the inside too.  OLB or ILB?  

42. Houston - DeAndre McDaniel SS - Houston addresses it's horrible secondary with a solid second round selection

43. Minnesota - Muhammad Wilkerson DT - Wilkerson slides more than expected for two reasons.  1) He is raw 2) There has already been tons of d-linemen picked

44. Detroit - Torrey Smith WR - The Lions can't find a CB they like and address it through free agency.  In the meantime, they land DHB part two!  Actually, a solid deep threat for Stafford.

45. San Francisco - Mikel Leshoure RB - I think Leshoure is a little overvalued in the late first.  I like him in the early second and I think he can fit the 49ers mold.  

46. Denver - Mason Foster LB - Denver lands one of my favorite players in the draft.  Foster is a tackling machine who brings the wood and is undervalued in coverage.  

47. St. Louis - Randall Cobb WR - A very speedy and explosive threat for Sam Bradford.  

48. Oakland - Marvin Austin DT - The Raiders, big surprise, take a chance on this character risk.  

49. Jacksonville - Quinton Carter FS - The Jags land a solid safety who can contribute immediately.  

50. San Diego - Danny Watkins OT - Watkins is a very underrated player who might help Ryan Matthews develop as much as anybody.  

51. Tampa Bay - Rodney Hudson OG/C - The Bucs take a chance on this undersized but talented player.  C or OG?

52. New York Giants - Bruce Carter OLB - Though Carter could possibly slip to the third, his talent is of the first round variety.  

53. Indianapolis - Drake Nevis DT - Nevis would be a decent fit for the Colts and at #53, is a steal.  

54. Philadelphia - K.J. Wright OLB - The Eagles take a stud of a player who many people have not heard of.  

55. Kansas City - Jerrel Jernigan WR - Jernigan is possibly the best player available and matches up perfectly with the Chiefs needs.  This WR class is showing itself to be pretty deep.  

56. New Orleans - Christian Ballard DE - Ballard's best fit is as a 4-3 DE and he lands in a great place.  

57. Seattle - Jake Locker QB - Seatlle sweats it out and finally lands their QB.  I don't think he will be good though.  

58. Baltimore - Curtis Brown CB - The Ravens draft a CB who is starter quality.  

59. Atlanta - Pernell McPhee DE - Pernell McPhee is an underrated stud who fits with the Falcons nicely.  

60. Dallas (From New England) - Allen Bailey DE - I think Allen Bailey is a horrible football player but if coached up, he might have the tools to succeed.  

61. San Diego - Deunta Williams FS - If the Chargers lose Eric Weddle, this pick becomes more important.  Williams could slide to the third, or maybe the fourth.  He has second round talent.  

62. Chicago - William Rackley OG - The Bears fortify their O-line even more and find a guard that might prevent Cutler from hurting his other knee.  

63. Green Bay - Ryan Williams RB - The Packers land a RB that, with the emergence of Starks, might not be the biggest need, but this talent is hard to pass on.  

64. Pittsburgh - Jason Pinkston OG - Hometown boy plays next to Maurkice Pouncey for the next ten years.  Good value, big need, good pick.
