New Sporting News mock draft offers big surprise

New, comments

The gang from Sporting News have put out a new mock draft. The first 16 picks are available to the general public. The rest are for members of the War Room.

Here's the first five picks:

1. Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska

2. St. Louis Rams: Eric Berry, S, Tennessee

3. Kansas City Chiefs: Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan

4. Seattle Seahawks: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma

5. Cleveland Browns: Arrelious Benn, WR, Illinois

SN used the 2009 draft order. Some of the great Mocking the Draft commentators have been discussing a mock draft order in a Fanpost by ejrulz. Join in the fun!

On this mock, you're seeing it right – Brandon Graham is being picked third overall. He's a good pass rusher, but at this point doesn't seem like a top-five player. A few other quick surprises: No Jevan Snead or Bryan Bulaga. Jared Odrick being the second defensive tackle off the board. A few undersized defensive ends were given out in Graham, Thaddeus Gibson and Dexter Davis. To me, none of those three scream Larry English.
