My Mock V. I Forget

1. Carolina: Blaine Gabbert, QB, Mizzou: With the Panthers talking to pretty much every QB in this draft, they either are the best smoke-screeners ever or they are looking QB early. I'll vote for the latter, and although I like Newton better then Gabbert I think Gabbert best fits the SD O Rivera is bringing

2. Denver: Marcell Dareus, DT, Bama: Denver's definitely hoping Carolina picks a QB so they can have their choice of whatever D player they want. I think Dareus has proven both on the field and this offseason he is the best D player in the draft.

3. Buffalo: Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU: Like Denver, they need D almost everywhere. I'd say PP is the next best D player after Dareus.

4. Cincinatti: Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn: Cincy could really use a DT, and Fairley fit the bill at 4.

5. Arizona: Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M: I hope for this kids sake he goes to a 3-4, he was born for it.

6. Cleveland: AJ Green, WR, UGA: Easily BPA and fills a huge need

7. SF: Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska: Prince dispelled all rumors he was slow, good for him, he's gonna be a great player in this league

8. Tennessee: DaQuan Bowers, DE, Clemson: I don't think Tennessee will be looking to draft a DE this early, but Bowers presents great value here, and with a healthy Morgan next year this could be a beast DE tandem.

9. Dallas: Tyron Smith, OT, USC: JJ wants an OL, he'll get one. Smith may not be the best rookie OT, but he sure has a lot of upside

10. Washington: Robert Quinn, OLB, UNC: I was thinking QB, but I don't see Newton as a perfect fit for Shanny, I expect him to go for a QB in the 2nd. Quinn should team up well with Orakpo

11. Houston: Aldon Smith, OLB, Mizzou: I really don't like this kid, but with the top CB's off the board, and no better stand up rusher, Smith's gotta be the pick

12. Minnesota: Cam Newton, QB, Auburn: I expect them to go for a vet QB if this lockout ends, but I also think it would be in the teams best interest to get a QB to groom for the future

13. Detroit: Nate Solder, OT, Colorado: I think Ayers proved he's not worthy of this high a pick, and no other LB presents value. Solder has a lot of potential, but for now I could see him at RT till Schwartz's wood for Backus goes down.

14. STL:Julio Jones, WR, Bama: I like the kid, but the talk of top 10 pick is a little much. He has dropped way too many balls to be there. At 14 though, this is a great pick

15. Miami: Mark Ingram, RB, Bama: Does anyone think this pick won't happen? Unless a Newton/Gabbert fall here or Ingram gets taken earlier, I fully expect this pick to happen

16. Jax: Cameron Jordan, DE, Cal: I don't think he's the prototypical RE, but he can generate a lot of pressure and cause havoc against the run.

17. NE: JJ Watt, DE, Wisconsin: I don't buy the top 10 talk. The kid is a tough, hard nosed guy, not a top 10 playmaker. I think NE's a good spot for him, he'll thrive taking on blocks and allowing LB's to make plays.

18. San Diego: Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA: I've been reading a lot of scouting reports lately that say Ayers could be best served at 3-4 OLB. I think with a little refinement of his pass rush, I agree.

19. NYG: Martez Wilson, LB, Illinois: This kids been shooting up draft boards. It may be a bit high, but I fully expect the Gmen to target him, and maybe aim to trade down for him. Still, its not a huge reach and I think he can play pretty much any LB position in the 4-3, making him that much more valuable

20. TB: Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue: I think he'll go higher then this, but mocks tend to work in mysterious ways. Great combo of need/BPA

21. KC: Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin: I know KC fans want Taylor here, but that is a huge reach. Carimi can come in and start day one at RT.

22. Indy: Anthony Coastanzo, OT, BC: I love this kid and I think he'll do a great job protecting Manning

23. Philly: Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado: Not much to say on this one.

24. New Orleans: Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa: He's had a lot of red flags on him, but the kid is a top 10 talent. If NO can get his act together, this is a steal

25. Seattle: Ryan Mallet, QB, Arkansas: Wes Bunting recently said he talked to numerous scouts who said Mallet is a lock for the first round. Seattle could use this guy.

26. Baltimore: Muhammad Wilkerson, DE, Temple: I think he's a great fit as a 5 tech. Probably won't start day one, but as a rotational guy at first then a starter down the road this kid will do well in Baltimore

27. Atlanta: Justin Houston, DE, UGA: Like Morgan last year, being a strictly 4-3 DE may cause him to fall a bit more then his talent would suggest

28. NE: Derrek Sherrod, OT, Miss St.: No matter what this kid does he gets no love. He did very very well at the Senior Bowl, against 2 of the best pass rushers in this draft, and no recognition. This is a perfect Belicheck pick.

29. Chicago:Cory Liuget, DT, Illinois: A lot farther then I think he'll go, but here is perfect spot for this kid to go to

30. NYJ: Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio St.: Fills a need and is a very good talent, when he wants to be. I think Rex can get it out of him on a consistent basis though

31. Pittsburgh: Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor: Casey Hampton's future replacement.

32. GB: Mike Pouncey, OG, Florida: With the top OT's gone, Pouncey ain't a bad consolation prize.
