    The 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft: Info & Selection Thread

    With the draft quickly approaching, the ClanRam would like to bring back something we did last year... the Mod Mock Draft! In it, a small group of moderators took turns projecting picks for teams through the first three rounds of the NFL draft. In this manner, a mock draft was created that brought together the thoughts and input of multiple posters in one great read.

    But this year, we're doing something different. Along with four moderator participants, we'd like to include four regular member participants as well so that a wide variety of opinions both from the mods and from regular members can be taken into account.

    The participants for this year's Round-Table Mock Draft are...
    • Bar-bq (purple)
    • RamWraith (orange)
    • Nick (blue)
    • Country (pink)
    • RamsFan16 (green)
    • AvengerRam (gold)
    • Rambos (brown)
    • HUbison (red)

    With four moderators and four members participating in this sucker, each participant will make four picks in each round. When making selections for a team, participants will consider what a team has added through free agency, what they still need to be looking at for the draft, but most importantly, the value of prospects as it currently stands.

    But just because there are only eight actual participants doesn't mean that we don't want everyone's feedback. There are two threads for the Round-Table Mock: the Info/Selection thread in which the participants make the picks, and the Discussion thread in which EVERYONE can talk about picks that have been made, picks that are coming up, or needs that teams have. So even if you're not making picks in the Info/Selection Thread, feel free to offer your input in the Discussion thread!

    The order of participants and what teams they'll be selecting for has been decided. Order was chosen randomly by me. Each participant has been assigned a color, as noted on the above list. Below, there is a list of the draft order for the first three rounds of the draft. If a team is highlighted in your assigned color, that means you're making that pick. Be sure to pay attention as we move on to later rounds, because a changing draft order means you'll be picking for different teams!

    When posting your pick for a team, please try to include some important information - what team you're picking for, who that team picks, their position and college, and why you made that pick. The reasoning is important, so don't leave it out!

    So, without further adieu, let's get this show on the road! Oakland Raiders, you are now on the clock!

    Re: The 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft: Info & Selection Thread

    Oakland Raiders: Jamarcus Russell, QB, Louisianna State University-



    The one pick I wanted- Far from a sure bet, it seems as if a Two-Horse race is unfolding for the Number one overall pick in thos year's draft. Whilst Calvin Johnson is undoubtedly the most highly touted prospect this year, and most highly touted Reciever since Larry Fitzgerald, and before him, Torry Holt, most are speculating that the Raiders will pass on the most talented prospect, a la the Houston Texans of 2006, to select a player they most definitely need.

    The offensive line was shocking last year, and the Raiders could pull a rabbit from the hat and select Joe Thomas, but it appears highly unlikely they'll do so.

    Andrew Walter has been lackluster, and this performance has been punctuated by his lack of ability to succeed when surrounded by was was once hearelded by some potentially the most dangerous offense in the NFL. Russell is drafted to replace the incumbent starter. With a cannon for an arm, a high motor, and a 6'5 frame, Russell has all the tools necessary to succeed. And surrounded by a supporting cast that includes former #2 overall Offensive Tackle Robert Gallery, Deep Reciever threat Randy Moss and Tailback LaMont Jordan, the Raiders pray he'll do just that.

    Detroit Lions--Joe Thomas-T-Wisconsin


    I really believe this pick will be traded to the Falcons or Bucs, however in this mock we are not allowed to do that.

    Although Calvin Johnson is one of the only can't miss players in this draft. Detroit can not afford to draft yet another receiver. This off-season Detroit spent a lot of money on free agent wide-outs and were already deep at that position. Quarterback is yet another need of the Lions as Kitna is no spring chicken, but it wouldn't matter who was throwing the rock if you can't give someone time to do so and after the Harrington disaster, I can not see them taking a big risk here at the quarterback position.

    Thomas will provide this team with an immediate starter for years to come. He will anchor what was a very porous line last year. Joe can do it all, a great pass blocker, a road grader and a great leader. Joe is the second can't miss player in this draft.

    Re: The 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft: Info & Selection Thread

    With the 3rd pick in the 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft, the Cleveland Browns select....



    Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma

    Reasoning: Head coach Romeo Crennel is on the hot seat in Cleveland. The Browns have won a combined 10 games in the time since Crennel took over for Butch Davis. Verdict - Romeo nees to win now and needs to find a player at the third overall spot that's going to be able to get on the field immediately and make things happen. Additionally, Browns GM Phil Savage previously spent time as Director of Player Personnel on the Baltimore Ravens, a team that was able to win a championship with a strong running game and a dominant defense. Though the Browns certainly need to find their quarterback of the future, I suspect Crennel and Savage may opt to try and use the Baltimore formula here in Cleveland and go for the running back to team with Jamal Lewis. Notre Dame's Brady Quinn is a consideration here, but in today's NFL you need to have a capable 1-2 punch in your backfield, and Peterson can team with Lewis for one year before becoming the featured guy next season.

    With the 4th selection in the NFL Draft the Tampa Bay Buccanneers select WR Calvin Johnson from Georgia Tech.


    Gruden just smiled as the best player in the draft fell into his lap with no trade up required.

    Re: The 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft: Info & Selection Thread

    With the 6th pick in the draft, the Washington Redskins select:


    Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas

    The Skins were last in the NFL with 19 sacks last year.
    Anderson is one of the top 2 pass rushers in the draft.
    Not a tough choice.

    With the 7th pick in the 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft, the Minnesota Vikings select... Brady Quinn QB Notre Dame


    With Tavaris Jackson and Brooks Bollinger at the QB, the Vikings biggest need is at quarterback. Brady Quinn should be able play early without much pressure in an offensive system that runs first. Look for the Vikings to address WR later in the draft as they signed Cortez Hankton in free agency.

    Re: The 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft: Info & Selection Thread

    With the 8th pick of the draft, the Falcons select....

    Laron Landry, S, LSU



    From week 1, Landry will most likely be the starting FS next to Milloy at SS. Outside of DeAngelo Hall and the 33-year-old Milloy, the 'cons secondary is thread bare. Landry brings an immediate upgrade to Atlanta's back 4. He is the total package......enough of a playmaker to roam centerfield in a deep third, a solid tackler who can step into the middle on blitz packages, and a big enough hitter to play the 8th man inside. The kid is far and away the best DB in the draft.

    Re: The 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft: Info & Selection Thread

    With the 9th Pick in the Draft, the Miami Dolphins select...

    Levi Brown, OT, Penn St.



    The Dolphins are dissappointed that Quinn didn't fall, but it's waaaay too high to reach for a Quarterback now. This leaves three options- Amobi Okoye of Louisville, Ted Ginn of Ohio St, Brown from Penn State. Okoye would become a plug on what appears to be an ageless defense, but there are questions as to how he'd fit as the nose tackle in a 3-4 scheme. He's build more for the under-takcle position, and although this can change, as he's just 19 years of age, the Dolphins opt to add some solidity to an offensive line that has been lacking it for years. 9 is possibly a small reach for Brown, but 'need' factors into the equation.

    Ginn is a completely different kettle of fish. He's a huge question mark, due to injuries, but is still undoubtedly the fastest player in the draft. Wes Walker bolted to New England, leaving a shiny spot on the offense open to a rciever of Ginn's caliber. However, the Phins' again, feel OT is a more pressing need, because, without adequate protection, how in the world do you expect to give the QB (Whoever it Is) time to get the ball out to your reviers. Great offenses have great offensive lines.

    This is the classic example of how all the Dolphins' problems have hit them in the face at one. -Ageing defense, No Quarterback, Poor offensive line play, lost their #2 reciever to New England. The rebuilding process begins now, and the Dolphins will have to find ways to adrees their most pressing needs. Thankyou, Nick Saban.

    Re: The 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft: Info & Selection Thread

    I debated hard on this pick and had to sleep on it after Levi Brown was off the board. The Texans have so many needs, and their top should be offensive line but with Thomas and Brown gone the Texans have to go another route.

    With the 10th pick the Houston Texans select:
    Leon Hall --Cornerback -- Michigan


    Hall would be an immediate starter in Houston's weak secondary. He is a ball hawk, quick and a true cover corner. He is stout against the run as he played in the ground happy Big Ten. Hall would be a huge upgrade over the Texans current starters of Faggans and Robinson.

    Re: The 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft: Info & Selection Thread

    With the 11th pick in the 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft, the San Francisco ***** take...



    ADAM CARRIKER, DE, NEBRASKA

    Mike Nolan is desperately looking for prospects that will help him make that transition to a full-time 3-4 defensive scheme. Carriker is a perfect 3-4 end who can either challenge Marques Douglas for a starting spot or learn behind Bryant Young before taking over full time for him upon his retirement. If the ***** still find themselves in a position where they aren't yet ready to run convert full time and still have to show some 4-3 looks, Carriker has the ability to line up as a three-technique under tackle for them and get to the passer in that manner.

    With the 12th pick in the 2007 NFL Entry Draft the Buffalo Bills select Patrick Willis LB Ole Miss.



    The Bills lost 2 starting LBs in London Fletcher and Takeo Spikes and they need LB Pat Willis who is a talent that can come in and start right away.

    Now what we have all been waiting for.

    Re: The 2nd Annual ClanRam Round-Table Mock Draft: Info & Selection Thread

    With the 13th Pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams select Amobi Okoye, Defensive Tackle out of Louisville.


    Reasoning: Once again in 2006 the Rams Run Defense was abysmal. Okoye has the potential to be a great defensive tackle. He can rush in and sack the quarterback and make plays in the backfield stopping the running back and can hold up at the point of attack and occupy multiple defenders. This is a Great pick for our Rams!
