    AvengerRam's First Round Mock Draft (*UPDATED* 2/27/05)

    Here's my updated version:

    1. San Francisco: Aaron Rogers, QB, California

    Still say this is a no brainer. They need a QB, Rogers is the top rated one on the board, and he's from Northern California.

    2. Miami: Ronnie Brown, RB, Auburn
    Does not look like Miami will be able to sign or trade for marquee RB. Brown had some very good games against Nick Saban's LSU Tigers.

    3. Cleveland: Antrel Rolle, CB, Miami
    A real difference maker for their defense. Could play CB or FS, or both, and is an excellent blitzer.

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

    5. TampaBay: Cedric Benson, RB, Texas
    Great pick for John Gruden's offense. Two Longhorns in a row.

    6. Tennessee: Alex Barron, OT, FSU
    Titans' need for OT makes Barron the perfect pick at this point.

    7. Minnesota: Braylon Edwards, WR, Michigan
    Only player in draft with potential to make Viking fans forget Randy Moss - at least a little bit.

    8. Arizona: Carnell Williams, RB, Auburn
    Williams adds to Cards growing collection of fine skill players.

    9. Washington Redskins, Anttaj Hawthorne, DT, Wisconsin
    Joe Gibbs gets his Dave Butz style defensive anchor.

    10. Detroit: Marcus Spears, DE, LSU
    New blood to replace aged Robert Porcher.

    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): Erasmus James, DE, Wisconsin
    Will help Chargers improve pass rush.

    13. Houston: Adam Jones, CB, West Virginia
    Needed boost to defense and potential return man.

    14. Carolina: Mike Williams, WR, USC
    With Mohammed gone, Smith coming off an injury and Proehl retiring, a need pick. Williams will be immediate red zone star.

    15. Kansas City: Carlos Rogers, CB, Auburn.
    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: Marlin Jackson, CB, Michigan
    His ability to play either CB or FS will make him a valuable addition to the Bengals' defense.

    18. Minnesota: Travis Johnson, DT, FloridaState
    Vikings are building their most formidable D line since the days of the "Purple People Eaters."

    19. St. Louis: Jamaal Brown, OT, Oklahoma
    With top defensive choices off the board, Brown the most logical pick.

    20. Dallas (from Buffalo): David Pollack, DE, Georgia
    Parcells will love his work ethic and "motor." Could start from day one.

    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: Channing Crowder, MLB, Florida
    Extreme need for upgrade at MLB causes Seahawks to overlook Crowder's somewhat troubled history.

    24. Green Bay: Alex Smith, QB, Utah
    Packers finally select possible heir apparent to Favre. Could be forced into action early in career.

    25. Denver: Dan Cody, DE, Oklahoma
    Good value at this spot.

    26. New York Jets: Jason Campbell, QB, Auburn
    Jet fans will boo, but how long will fragile Chad Pennington last?

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

    28. Indianapolis: Shaun Cody, DT, USC
    What do you get for the team that has everything… on offense? A defensive player, of course.

    29. Atlanta: Terrence Murphy, WR, Texas A&M
    Vick still needs more targets.

    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.

    I think the Redskins will go WR, if Williams or Edwards last that long I see them jumping all over one of them.

    For GB, it's all up to Favre. I agree if he announces his retirement they draft a QB early, but if not the Pack will go D-Line.

    er... You've got Heath Miller listed twice (16 & 26) on your board. Well if he's been cloned maybe we can clone Derrick Johnson and pick him at 19!! Just a thought.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Some detailed comments...

    -Ronnie Brown at #2 is very interesting. Thus far he's helped his stock at the combine (4.32 40, I think... wow!), though if TB takes a halfback, it'll probably be Williams.

    -Anttaj Hawthorne at #9 is a big reach, IMO. I think if the Redskins take D-lineman, I believe it'll be a pass rushing end over an interior guy.

    -Minnesota has the #7 pick through the Moss trade. At first I thought maybe you weren't counting it, but you mention it in the reasoning, heh.

    -I like Carolina picking Mike Williams. If he drops that far, that's a no brainer for them after releasing Muhammad.

    -The Saints need to go defense with that first pick. Their TE Boo Williams was one catch away from being third on their receiving list. I'm not sure if that warrants using a first round pick on a TE.

    -I like Roddy White to Baltimore.

    -If Alex Smith falls to Green Bay, I'm not sure they could pass him up. But I doubt he falls that far.

    -Jets taking QB in the first round, with Browner and Justin Miller still on the board? I'm not following you here.

    -If the Chargers pass on Shaun Cody for Jonathan Babineaux, I think it'll be a huge mistake.

    -Phily gets a solid pick up in Thurman, who should be their MLB-of-the-future, as you said. That's a good pick with all the receivers that are gone.

    Man, that's the last time I do a mock draft while doing 3 other things at the same time!


    Second fix!
