Here’s an update to last month’s Mock NFL Draft, which you can see here.
St Louis Rams- Sam Bradford
This is practically a lock at this point regardless of their personal workout for Colt McCoy.
Detroit Lions- Ndamukong Suh
I’m staying true to this pick especially now that there is rumors of Detroit trading for OG Rob Sims from Seattle.
Tampa Bay Bucs- Gerald McCoy
If Suh goes to Detroit, the Bucs take McCoy – simple as that.
Washington Redskins- Russell Okung
Everything I keep hearing and reading keeps pointing to Okung if he is still here. Don’t get me wrong, I think Washington drafts a QB, but not with this pick. With Campbell around for one more year and Grossman, they are set at Be this year at least which would allow a 2nd or 3rd round QB the luxury of at least one year to learn.
Kansas City Chiefs- Eric Berry
I still really feel that KC goes with Berry as he fills an instant need and is probably the 2nd rated player in this year’s draft. KC has already done some fixing on their O Line via Free Agency which is the only other position I could see them addressing in the first round.
Seattle Seahawks- Bryan Bulaga
Again, I think that Seattle will address the O line first.
Cleveland Browns- Joe Haden
I think he did enough in his pro day to reinstall faith in him. He is clearly the best CB in this year’s draft according to tape. The Browns will shrug off the combine performance as a fluke and help their secondary.
Oakland Raiders- Bruce Campbell
I still like the crummy actor-turned-OT here for this team. That is if they somehow keep this pick. Word is that Oakland has been getting offers for it.
Buffalo Bills- Trent Williams
Word out of the Buff’s camp is that they feel their issues are more O Line then QB and the stats show it. Putting a rookie behind a bad O Line would be a wasted investment.
Jacksonville Jaguars- Jimmy Clausen
The Jags are in a tough spot here because they are wanting to draft based on best player available. Word is that they are in negotiations to sign DE Reggie Hayward to am inventive laden deal for 2 years or so which means DE can be addressed in round 3 when they re-enter the 2010 draft.
Denver Broncos- Dan Williams
I consider the signing of Jamaal Williams as insurance in case someone makes a bold move and takes Williams higher then the Broncos. Jamaal is 34 and injury prone which means he’ll be used more as a situational player as he switches in and out with Dan.
Miami Dolphins- Jason Pierre-Paul
Parcells loves guys that can get after the QB and word is that Miami has been favoring Pierre-Paul since the combine and he would fit in nicely with newly acquired Karlos Dansby.
San Francisco 49ers- Derrick Morgan
San Fran could use a good DE and I feel they take him as a value here. He doesn’t fill an absolute immediate need, but he is for certain one of the best players available.
Seattle Seahawks- CJ Spiller
I still feel that Pete Carroll takes Reggie Bush Jr here and makes him an immediate weapon.
New York Giants- Rolando McClain
This is pretty much a lock for me as he passes by Denver.
Tennessee Titans- Sergio Kindle
With the recent re-signing of CB Hill, this will allow the Titans to draft a DE to start in lace of departed Kyle VandenBosch.
San Francisco 49ers- Anthony Davis
I know this seems like a reach all things considered with all of the bonehead garbage he has pulled, but Andre Smith went in the top 10 last year after the stunts he pulled and Davis has been reaching out to coaches to express that he really wants to have a career in the NFL and is willing to do what it takes.
Pittsburgh Steelers- Mike Iupati
Sticking with upgrade on the inside of the line here.
Atlanta Falcons- Brandon Graham
He fits the Falcon’s scheme better then Griffen and probably a step ahead of Griffen as well.
Houston Texans- Earl Thomas
Everyone else has Thomas here so I am cheating and playing copy cat. Honestly though, the secondary gets addressed here whether it is Thomas or CB Kyle Wilson, but Thomas is ranked higher.
Cincinnati Bengals –Taylor Mayes
Watch for Lewis to use him as a Safety/LB hybrid and even has him rush the WB some times.
New England Patriots- Jared Odrick
Word is the Pats are more in love with this guy then I am with Carrie Underwood, and that is saying something. I always knew there was something strange going on in Foxboro.
Green Bay Packers- Maurkice Pouncey
Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher were re-signed which means that they will beef up the interior of the line and take a guy that can play either G spot or even move the C if needed.
Philadelphia Eagles- Kyle Wilson
The cornerback depth is something the Eagles must address, and Kyle Wilson is one of the better players available at this juncture. Oakland is even trying to give Nnamdi Asomugha to Philly in a trade for McNabb so that should show you how much Philly is really thinking about their secondary right now.
Baltimore Ravens- Jermain Gresham
Another weapon to beef up the offense because this aging defense is going to start giving up more points then its offense was able to score the last couple of years.
Arizona Cardinals- Everson Griffen
He played this past season with both his hand in the dirt in a 4-3 scheme and as a stand up OLB in a 3-4 alignment. He has ample experience dropping into coverage as well which makes him a good fit here.
Dallas Cowboys- Dez Bryant
Word is that Jerry Jones is drooling over the possibility of Bryant falling this far, or is that his dentures beginning to fall out? Either way, Bryant has not helped his case much this off season which is why he falls but lands in the big D.
San Diego Chargers- Ryan Mathews
I feel that Houston addresses their more pressing need in the secondary and passes on Mathews which allows him to fall to the hometown Chargas! Mr. Sproles, meet your change of pace.
New York Jets –Golden Tate
After the moves I have heard this team is trying to make (trading for Brandon Marshall) and leaks out of the front office, I feel that Rex Ryan thinks he can work with the defense he has but feels he needs more help on offense. Plus a sweet return man to boot.
Minnesota Vikings- Kareem Jackson
I stand by my pick to help this secondary which got burned so many times last year. After Jackson’s pro day, I think he cracks the first round.
Indianapolis Colts –Brian Price
Word is that he looked out of shape at his pro day and looked sloppy. I am going to liken this to last year with Hakeem Nicks who was a reported 20 lbs overweight but was still taken at the tail end of the first and started half way through his rookie year.
New Orleans Saints- Sean Weatherspoon
I have seen recent mock drafts having him going ahead of Rolando McClain which is possible. He could go to the G Men, but I honestly am not sure on where this guy goes if he does get taken before the Saints. If he doesn’t then the Saints do not hesitate to pull the trigger here.
