Damond Talbot's Mock Draft 2.0

Well now that we know where most of the good free agents are going, I will be putting up my newest version of my Mock Draft on Mocking The Draft. Who is your team taking? Did you get the guy you wanted for your team? If not leave a comment in the comments section. Also please rate the draft in with the vote meter below

1. Indianapolis Colts - Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford – Well as you all saw today, the kid is a special QB. Although I believe he is over rated, he is a great quarterback. I don’t believe he will have tons of success his first year, but he will be their guy for years and years.

2. Washington RedskinsRobert Griffin III, QB, Baylor – The most accurate quarterback in the NCAA will land with the Redskins. With Garcon, and Morgan going to Washington, the Skins are trying to put the pieces together for their young quarterback.

3. Minnesota VikingsMatt Kalil, LT, USC – With the Vikings having a young quarterback and a healthy Adrian Peterson, they need the help on the Offensive line. With the signing of Geoff Schwartz, the Vikings are looking to improve their offensive stats.

4. Cleveland BrownsJustin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State – With the talk in Cleveland, that they are planning on keeping Colt McCoy at QB, the Browns will have to look to improve their receiving corps. Blackmon gives them a true number 1 receiver.

5. Tampa Bay BuccaneersMorris Claiborne, CB, LSU – In a division stocked full of franchise quarterbacks, the Bucs need to address the corner position. With Talib getting in trouble, and Ronde Barber coming back for just one more year, Claiborne can come right in and take over to help slow down the quarterbacks like Brees, Newton and Ryan.

6. Saint Louis RamsTrent Richardson, RB, Alabama – When you look at it, the QB position is set, and even though they have a good runningback in Steven Jackson, how can you not like the 1, 2 punch of Jackson and Richardson in St. Louis. It will take a ton of pressure off the young Sam Bradford.

7. Jacksonville JaguarsDre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama – With the signing of Aaron Ross, and the one year deal of Rasheen Mathis, the Jags, have been poor in the secondary. Kirkpatrick is the best player on the board at this point in a position of need. Kirkpatrick and Ross will be holding the corners down for a while in J-Ville.

8. Miami DolphinsRyan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M – With the Fin fans going bonkers in Miami this past week, and not wanting Tebow. There options are running out. Tannehill has a working relationship with Sherman and this could be a good spot for him. They still have decent receivers for him to get the ball too.

9. Carolina PanthersDontari Poe, DT, Memphis – Well Panthers you got your man, and he is not a little man. He is being compared to Haloti Ngata, this guy will not let guys like Michael Turner and Lagarrette Blount run over the Panther defense. Poe with Charles Johnson make the Panthers line look pretty good on paper.

10. Buffalo BillsDavid DeCastro, G, Stanford – I might get killed for this, but DeCastro is the best player available and has the potential to be a pro bowler. With Levitre, Wood and DeCastro in the middle of the field, Fast Freddy and CJ are going to have a field day.

11. Kansas City ChiefsLuke Kuechly, LB, Boston College – The tackling machine is top 10 worthy, and I don’t think the Chiefs can pass on him. He is too good of a tackler, and could be a great asset to the middle of the field for the defense.

12. Seattle SeahawksMichael Brockers, DT, LSU – This kid is a mean player, with long arms. He is young, but he will help their defense stop the run. With the Rams picking up Richardson they will need to load the line to stop the run.

13. Arizona CardinalsCourtney Upshaw, OLB, Alabama – Upshaw is able to rush the QB from the outside and drop in coverage. Upshaw is the pick for the Cardinals.

14. Dallas CowboysFletcher Cox, DT/DE, Cox is a good fit for the Boys here, because he can play both DE and DT in the 3-4 that Rob Ryan has in Dallas. They are going to love this pick with him dropping to them.

15. Philadelphia EaglesDevon Still, DT, Penn State – With Demeco Ryans coming to town, the Eagles want to get their D-Line in place to help make the quarterbacks throw at their secondary. Still is a jack of all trades and can be used well by the Eagles.

16. New York JetsMichael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame – With the Jets not re-signing Plaxico Burress, they get their man in the young stud out from the Fighting Irish. Floyd will help the quarterback situation in New York.

17. Cincinnati BengalsMelvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina – Ingram is a better pass rusher than Coples. As you can see Coples is still on the board at 18, and Ingram is taken. Ingram has very good instincts and helps the Bengals young team.

18. San Diego ChargersRiley Reiff, OT, Iowa – With McNeil gone in Free Agency, Reiff falls in the laps of the Chargers, this might be one of the easiest picks in the draft. Reiff will get a chance to start right away with the Chargers.

19. Chicago BearsQuinton Coples, DE, UNC – He will learn from one of the best in the league in Julius Peppers. He will help the Bears solidify their line on defense.

20. Tennessee TitansStephen Gilmore, CB, South Carolina – After losing Cortland Finnegan in Free Agency, the Titans get a corner that can come in right away and play opposite of McCourty.

21. Cincinnati Bengals – Cordy Glenn, OG/OT, Georgia – When the Bengals lost Livings to the Cowboys it hurt them. Glenn is a safe pick and can play both guard and tackle. He will help protect Dalton.

22. Cleveland Browns – Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall – He has climbed up the boards with his amazing pro day performance. He was a freak of nature in his pro day and he will fit in the 4-3. Curry, Sheard and Taylor could be something special for Dick Jauron’s defense.

23. Detroit LionsJanoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama – When they lost Eric Wright, they need a cornerback. Especially when they are facing Aaron Rogers and Jay Cutler. They are going to have to stack up their secondary and they get a good pick at 23 with Jenkins.

24. Pittsburgh SteelersJonathan Martin, OT, Stanford – He is a very good pick at 24 and he falls to the Steel crew who is in very big need of a tackle. He will help watch Big Ben’s back side.

25. Denver BroncosJerel Worty, DT, Michigan State – Worthy fills in the place of Broderick Bunkley who they lost in Free Agency. Broncos were trying to sign Paul Solai before he re-signed with the Fins. So Defensive Tackle is the place to go here.

26. Houston TexansStephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech – WOW the receivers in Houston might be serious next year. Watch out defensive backs in the division, because Hill and Johnson could be the next big thing with a gun slinger like Schaub at the helm.

27. New England PatriotsNick Perry, DE, USC – Bill Belichek is licking his chops with this pick. Perry is a tough kid and showed that he has a very good motor at the NFL scouting combine.

28. Green Bay PackersPeter Konz, C, Wisconsin – With Scott Wells leaving to the Rams, the Packers need a center bad. Konz fills the need and is from the same state.

29. Baltimore RavensKendall Wright, WR, Baylor – With the Ravens historical mess up with Lee Evans, they won’t have to worry about it anymore. Wright has better hands and is faster than Evans. He will go in the slot with Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin. More fire power for Flacco.

30. San Francisco 49ersZach Brown, OLB, UNC – He set the North Carolina record for all people as the fastest man in the 60 meter, and with him Willis, Bowman and Smith they have another serious piece of a monstrous defense.

31. New England Patriots – Whitney Mercilus, DE, Illinois – With the Pats losing Mark Anderson and Andre Carter getting hurt, the Pats build their line through the draft. Mercilus and Perry will be bringing heat to the AFC East qb’s for a long time.

32. New York GiantsDonte Hightower, ILB, Alabama – You can’t pass on this kid in the first round. To me he is the best players available and can fill a need on the defense. Chase Blackburn played well, but Hightower is a stud.
