    Av's Mock (A somewhat unconventional view of the first 33 picks)

    1. Miami Dolphins – Jake Long, OT, Michigan
    While the Dolphins are considering at least three players at this point, in the end I think Bill Parcells would prefer to spend first pick $ on an OT than a DE.

    2. St. Louis Rams – Chris Long, DE, Virginia
    Howie’s son just makes sense. He is the right player, at the right position.

    3. Atlanta Falcons – Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
    They need help at a lot of positions, but in the end, what they really need is a leader.

    4. Oakland Raiders – Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio State
    The Raiders want a guy who will be on the highlight film. Gholston is that guy.

    5. Kansas City Chiefs – Ryan Clady, OT, Boise State
    Offensive line is a huge priority, and Clady is a very good prospect.

    6. New York Jets – Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
    Dorsey’s slide, prompted by health concerns, ends here.

    7. New England Patriots (from San Francisco) – Derrick Harvey, DE/OLB, Florida
    Patriots believe that with good pass rushers, elite CBs are not needed. Harvey fits that plan.

    8. Baltimore Ravens – Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
    Brohm’s strange riches to rags journey comes full circle as Ravens fill their biggest need.

    9. Cincinnati Bengals – Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC
    The Bengals need a lot of defensive help, and Ellis can be the anchor.

    10. New Orleans Saints – Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy
    Saints need a CB, and won’t look a gift-horse (from Troy) in the mouth.

    11. Buffalo Bills – James Hardy, WR, Indiana
    When developing a young QB, a big WR is not a bad thing to have.

    12. Denver Broncos – Chris Williams, OT, Vanderbilt
    Williams is the kind of athletic OL who will fit in the Broncos’ scheme.

    13. Carolina Panthers – Brandon Albert, OG, Virginia
    John Fox likes to build in the trenches. Albert will be a 10 year starter.

    14. Chicago Bears – Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas
    That’s right! I have McFadden sliding all the way to 14. And Bears fans will be thrilled.

    15. Detroit Lions – Dominique Rogers-Cromartie, CB, Tennessee State
    A very good pick by a team in desperate need of defensive help.

    16. Arizona Cardinals – Philip Merling, DE, Clemson
    The Cardinals need to find a way to generate a pass rush from the DL.

    17. Minnesota Vikings – Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida
    Jenkins is a good value at this point and will fit well with the Vikings.

    18. Houston Texans – Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois
    Texans get an every down RB who should top 1,000 yards as a rookie.

    19. Philadelphia Eagles – Jeff Otah, OT, Pittsburgh
    O line help is needed, and Otah is a BIG addition.

    20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Joe Flacco, QB, Delaware
    Tampa is not happy with their long term QB situation, and so they reach a bit.

    21. Washington Redskins – Quentin Groves, OLB/DE, Auburn
    Perhaps not a great fit in D.C., but the Skins are desperate for a pass rusher.

    22. Dallas Cowboys (from Cleveland) – Limas Sweed, WR, Texas
    It’s a match made in the Lone Star State.

    23. Pittsburgh Steelers – Kenny Phillips, S, Miami
    The Hurricanes streak of first round picks continues.

    24. Tennessee Titans – Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas
    Titans need a more dynamic player in the backfield.

    25. Seattle Seahawks – Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College
    Hawks get an immediate RT and an heir apparent to Walter Jones.

    26. Jacksonville Jaguars – Keith Rivers, OLB, USC
    Great value at this stage in the draft. Rivers will excel behind the Jaguars big DL.

    27. San Diego Chargers – DeSean Jackson, WR, California
    Chargers need another playmaker on offense.

    28. Dallas Cowboys – Aquib Talib, CB, Kansas
    Talib has had some red flags regarding the use of a certain plant. But if Dallas would consider Pacman…

    29 San Francisco Niners (from Indianapolis) – Jerod Mayo, ILB, Tennessee
    Niners need OL help, but value’s not there. Mayo and Willis will be a great pair.

    30. Green Bay Packers – Dan Connor, LB, Penn State
    Connor fills a need and will be a productive rookie.

    31. New York Giants – Justin King, CB, Penn State
    King gives a much needed infusion of youth in the DB.

    32. Miami Dolphins – Chad Henne, QB, Michigan
    Maybe the Dolphins will have an all Wolverines draft?

    33. St. Louis Rams – Devin Thomas, WR, Michigan State
    Has the size that Linehan likes (6’2, 217) and the speed to stretch the field (4.40).

    As far as the Rams, I would be high on life with this first day. Nice Mock.

    What position is Dorsey going to play in a 3-4?
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]Maybe not now, but soon.

    His role will be similar to the role played by Richard Seymour in New England. DE on running downs and DT on passing downs.

    Wow...this is really interesting, Avenger. I can't believe how far DMC falls...but what I can't believe moreso is that it's not preposterous to say such a thing.

    I think there's a real possibility Dorsey goes at 3 or 4, as opposed to 6.

    I think that Dorsey will go to Oakland before he reaches 6. But I like the pick for us.

    Re: Av's Mock (A somewhat unconventional view of the first 33 picks)

    Very interesting mock. Some general comments...

    -Dorsey to the Jets, I dunno. I don't think he's a great fit in the 3-4, and I doubt the Jets risk it after the Dewayne Robertson experiment.

    -Not sure I still see Brohm in the top twenty right now, let alone top ten. He'd fill a need for the Ravens but I don't think the value is there.

    -Intriguing Vikings pick. I can see a case being made for a corner, especially with little value at DE there.

    -Seattle just signed RT Sean Locklear to a five-year extension, so I doubt they're looking to replace him.

    -I would love to see Devin Thomas last until our pick in the second round, but he's arguably the top WR prospect at this point so I doubt it happens. Great scenario though.

    Wow, James Hardy as high as 11? McFadden as low as 14? Very interesting. I would love it if we could fill our biggest need and get a potential heir apparent to Torry Holt, although Thomas has likely propelled himself into the first round.

    8. Baltimore Ravens – Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
    Brohm’s strange riches to rags journey comes full circle as Ravens fill their biggest need.
    I've yet to understand why Brohm has fallen to the 2nd round after being considered a top 10, even top 5 prospect. At one point after the Vick stuff went down, we were talking about the Falcons trying to win the Brohm sweepstakes. So what happened to the guy? His int. % went up a little bit, and his yards per attempts went down a little bit, but neither of a significant number without Bush and Smith to keep defenses honest.

    Brohm's a player, and a steal in the 2nd, if you ask me.

    And I think, knowing this, the Falcons do everything they can to obtain him- I can certainly envision a trade-up past Miami into the late first round. Whichever team lands him in round 2 will be ecstatic.

    Re: Av's Mock (A somewhat unconventional view of the first 33 picks)

    I agree that Devin Thomas may not last to pick 33. He seems to be a "riser."

    If he's gone, I'd probably look at Donnie Avery at that spot. Some might think that's a bit high for him, but I'm pretty confident he'll go in the top 50 picks.

    I'd say Hardy's an ok bet to be there. He won't go much higher than #33 if he does go in the first.
