    AvengerRam Final* Mock Draft (2 rounds)

    *This will be my final mock draft unless (1) Leonard Little is convicted, or (2) there are pre-draft trades involving picks in the first 2 rounds.

    Round 1

    1. San Francisco: Aaron Rogers, QB, California
    Did not disappoint in workouts. Could see action as a rookie given the lack of QB talent in San Fran.

    2. Miami: Ronnie Brown, RB, Auburn
    Brown had some very good games against Nick Saban's LSU Tigers. Forget the Ricky Williams talk. I truly doubt he'll return.

    3. Cleveland: Alex Smith, QB, Utah
    Solid workout puts him near top of the draft. Browns need stability at the QB position.

    4. Chicago: Derrick Johnson, LB, Texas
    Lovie Smith will be very happy with this pick. Brian Urlacher will be downright giddy.

    5. TampaBay: Braylon Edwards, WR Michigan
    Bucs building a potentially top-notch WR corps.

    6. Tennessee: Antrel Rolle, CB, Miami
    Titans' need an OT too, but will gamble that a viable option is there in Round 2 rather than passing up a Blue Chip talent like Rolle.

    7. Minnesota: Mike Williams, WR, USC
    Won't Viking fans forget Randy Moss, but will be a big, sure-handed target for Duante Culpepper.

    8. Arizona: Carnell Williams, RB, Auburn
    Another skill player for a growing collection in the desert.

    9. Washington Redskins, Adam "Pac Man" Jones, West Virginia
    After trading Champ Bailey and losing Fred Smoot to FA in the past two years, Redskins need a front line talent at this position.

    10. Detroit: Erasmus James, DE, Wisconsin
    Lions need a pass rushing DE, and get the top-rated one here.

    11. Dallas: Shawne Merriman, DE/LB, Maryland
    Cowboys get potential dominant pass rusher who should fit their scheme well.

    12. San Diego (from N.Y.Giants): David Pollack, DE, Georgia.
    The first reach of Round 1. Chargers somewhat desparate for a pass rusher, and they're going fast.

    13. Houston: Alex Barron, OT, FSU
    Will soften the blow of failing to acquire Orlando Pace.

    14. Carolina: Travis Johnson, DT, FSU
    Loss of Kris Jenkins hurt the team greatly last year. Johnson the perfect contingency plan.

    15. Kansas City: Shaun Cody, DE, USC
    The Chiefs might want to consider going defense on all of their picks.

    16. New Orleans: Heath Miller, TE, Virginia
    Aaron Brooks needs a reliable receiver other than Joe Horn, and Miller could be a standout at the TE position.

    17. Cincinnati: Anttaj Hawthorne, DT, Wisconsin
    Another potential reach, but the Bengals really need some size inside.

    18. Minnesota: Thomas Davis, S, Georgia
    Is it me, or are the Vikings starting to look a bit scary? That is, they would be scary if they had a competent head coach.

    19. St. Louis: Jammal Brown, OT, Oklahoma
    Rams sweat it out and land they player best suited to fill what is arguably their biggest need.

    20. Dallas (from Buffalo): David Baas, OG, Michigan
    Parcells adds some youth and depth to the aging O line in Dallas.

    21. Jacksonville: Mark Clayton, WR, Oklahoma
    Will bring some speed and excitement to the offense.

    22. Baltimore: Roddy White, WR, UAB
    Need more help at WR after missing out on Terrell Owens last year.

    23. Seattle: Carlos Rogers, CB, Auburn.
    Hawks get a potential replacement for departed Ken Lucas.

    24. Green Bay: Justin Miller, CB, Virginia Tech
    With Smith going early, I'm backing off my pick of a QB in round 1 for the Packers. Packers look to bolster problematic DB corps.

    25. Denver: Shaun Cody, DE, USC
    Good value at this spot, and a potential replacement for Trevor Pryce.

    26. New York Jets: Cedrick Benson, RB, Texas
    Big faller in first round is a steal. Will start as complementary back and will be the heir apparent to Curtis Martin.

    27. San Diego: Jonathan Babineaux, DT, Iowa
    Quality DTs don't usually last this long. Chargers get a potential steal.

    28. Indianapolis: Channing Crowder, MLB, Florida
    What do you get for the team that has everything… on offense? A defensive player, of course.

    29. Atlanta: Troy Williamson, WR, South Carolina
    Another target for Mike Vick.

    30. Pittsburgh: Darryl Blackstock, LB, Virginia
    With Kendrell Bell on way out in FA, will need to restock.

    31. Philadelphia: Odell Thurman, LB, Georgia
    NFC Champs get a player that will replace Trotter (sooner or later).

    32. New England: Kevin Burnett, LB, Tennessee
    LB is a key position in their defense, and they need some youth there.

    Round 2

    33. San Francisco: Mike Patterson, DT, USC
    Need to bolster inside run defense.

    34. Cleveland: Khalif Barnes, OT, Washington
    After investing first pick on a QB, Browns opt for some protection.

    35. Philadelphia: Matt Jones, WR/TE, Arkansas
    Eagles can afford to gamble on Jones. If he pans out, Jones and TO could be dangerous.

    36. Tampa Bay: J.J. Arrington, RB, California
    Speedy back will make Bucs offense more explosive.

    37. Tennessee: Adam Terry, OT, Syracuse
    Titans risk on passing OTs in first round works out well with this selection.

    38. Oakland: Demarcus Ware, DE/LB, Troy State
    Raiders add a valuable pass rusher.

    39. Chicago: Brodney Pool, FS, Oklahoma
    A "Lovie Smith kind-of-guy."

    40. New Orleans: Marlin Jackson, CB, Michigan
    Will add youth and versatility to Bucs' DBs.

    41. Detroit: Josh Bullocks, FS, Nebraska
    A needed addition to the Lions defense.

    42. Dallas: Marcus Spears, DE, LSU
    Need to replenish defensive line. Spears a good value pick here.

    43. New York Giants: Barret Ruud, MLB, Nebraska
    A good fit for the Giants.

    44. Arizona: Bryant McFadden, CB, FSU
    Replacement for Duane Starks.


    45. Carolina: Michael Munoz, OT, Tennessee
    With rising star Jordan Gross at LT, Munoz can settle in at RT.

    46. Kansas City: Fabian Washington, CB, Nebraska
    Defense, defense and more defense for Chiefs. Washington a speedy addition.

    47. Houston: Marcus Johnson, OG/OT, Mississippi
    Texans continue offensive line improvement.


    48. Cinncinnati: Corey Webster, CB, LSU
    Need more depth in secondary.

    49. Minnesota: Elton Brown, OG, Virginia
    Vikings having a very good day.

    50. St. Louis: James Butler, FS, Georgia Tech
    Rams desperately need help at safety position. Butler's strong performance at Pro Day workout (4.49 to 4.55 in 40 yard dash) and ideal size (6'1, 212) make him the choice.

    51. Green Bay: Charlie Frye, QB, Akron
    Packers wait until Round 2 to draft QB of the future.

    52. Jacksonville: Ernest Shazor, SS, Michigan
    Donovan Darius will likely be gone - if not this year, then next.

    53. Baltimore: Ben Wilkerson, C, LSU
    Top rated center gives Ravens needed O line depth. Could play guard.

    54. Seattle: Robert McCune, MLB, Louisville
    Guy looks like The Incredible Hulk. Hawks hope he doesn't play like Bruce Banner.

    55. Buffalo: Alex Smith, TE, Stanford
    A young QB needs a safety-valve receiver. Smith fits the bill(s).

    56. Denver: Terrence Murphy, WR, Texas A&M
    Rod Smith can't play forever.

    57. New York Jets: Eric Green, CB, Virginia Tech
    Jets need help in the defensive backfield.

    58. Green Bay: Dan Cody, DE, Oklahoma
    Good value pick.

    59. Atlanta: Matt Roth, DE, Iowa
    Falcons add depth on defensive line.

    60. Indianapolis: Eric Shelton, RB, Louisville
    With James potentially on the trading block, and looking to move on, Shelton is a good choice.

    61. San Diego: Chris Henry, WR, West Virginia
    With D line addressed in Round 1, Chargers get a target for Brees/Rivers.

    62. Pittsburgh: Kevin Everett, TE, Miami
    Young QB - reliable TE; again, a good combination.

    63. Philadelphia: Justin Tuck, DE, Notre Dame
    With Burgess gone, another pass rusher is needed.

    64. New England: Domonique Foxworth, CB, Maryland
    Patriots covered for thin DB corps last year, but won't bank on doing the same again.

    Interesting read, Av. Hopefully you get to put out another one as the draft draws near.

    Re: AvengerRam Final* Mock Draft (2 rounds)

    Like I said, unless something major (Little is convicted, a trade) happens, I'm going to stand by this one. I'm not much for the last-minute rumor mill. I remember a couple of years ago, every published rumor had the Rams taking a WR in Round 1, so I went with Andre' Davis in my mock. Then, they go ahead and take Robert Thomas.


    I feel pretty good about Brown being there at #19, though I'm hardly certain I'll be right. As for Butler in Round 2, I'm sure there are some who will say he's a reach there, but I think he's a good fit and he had a productive college career.

    Re: AvengerRam Final* Mock Draft (2 rounds)

    I'm not sure how much of a reach he is there, but personally, I would take Shazor and even Atogwe over Butler. But that may just be me.

    The more I hear, the more I think your having Ronnie Brown as Miami's pick makes more sense than my loyalty to their picking Cedric Benson. Apparently Benson had a somewhat disappointing workout recently.

    Re: AvengerRam Final* Mock Draft (2 rounds)

    I went back and forth on that too, but when I looked up Brown's stats against Saban's LSU team, I went with him.

    Re: AvengerRam Final* Mock Draft (2 rounds)

    By the way, Nick, we have 11 picks in the first two rounds that are the same player, though in many more spots we had the same position being selected.

    Rock on. I'm actually working on tweaking my 3.0 mock with some changes.

    Draft day will be fun. We'll definitely have to get a Chat Room going for the true fanatics.

    Well like they say...one team's reach is another team's starter. Ok, nobody really says that, but that doesn't mean it's not true.

    Re: AvengerRam Final* Mock Draft (2 rounds)

    Remember, the great draft guru Mel Kiper proclaimed Jason Shivers a draft day steal, and Anthony Hargrove a reach.


    I think Butler is a good choice in the second round. Time will tell.

    I still think Shivers will be a starter, but I digress....

    I've always been high on Butler. I don't think he's as sure a FS as Pool or Bullocks, but he will contribute. If he goes to us in the 2nd, I for one could live with it.

    Re: AvengerRam Final* Mock Draft (2 rounds)

    there is alot of "if's", If Leonard goes down .....I like Dan Cody. He's a stud and got no help in the OR- Bowl! And if he ain't there Go with A. Perkins. I know he was hurt for the most part of last year but he's one hell of a returner and would do just fine in at the CB position! Can you tell I'm a SOONER fan? :tongue:

    Whoa! Somehow I left out Cedrick Benson, so I've made a couple of changes. Benson slips in first round and ends up with the Jets at pick 26. J.J. Arrington falls to second round and goes to the Eagles.
