    Bucky Brooks from NFL.com Mock Draft

    1. St. Louis Rams
    Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
    The Rams select Bradford to be their franchise quarterback of the future after doctors express confidence about his long-term health prospects. (Previous pick: Ndamukong Suh)

    2. Detroit Lions
    Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
    Jim Schwartz opts against adding a centerpiece to his defense to give Stafford some protection on the backside; Okung's presence allows LT Jeff Backus to move inside to his natural guard position. (Previous pick: Gerald McCoy)

    3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
    Raheem Morris grapples with the decision to choose McCoy over Suh, but the former Sooner star is a better fit in the Bucs' one-gap scheme. (Previous pick: Jason Pierre-Paul)

    4. Washington Redskins
    Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
    Jimmy Clausen is in play at this spot, but the need for a franchise-caliber left tackle to replace Chris Samuels is a bigger priority. (Previous pick: Russell Okung)

    5. Kansas City Chiefs
    Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
    The thought of nabbing Suh is appealing considering his high grade, but the addition of Bulaga addresses the Chiefs' biggest need on the offensive line. (Previous pick: Trent Williams)

    6. Seattle Seahawks
    Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
    The Seahawks' offer to Charlie Whitehurst indicates the team will address their QB concerns in free agency; Davis gives the team a solid replacement for Walter Jones. (Previous pick: Derrick Morgan)

    7. Cleveland Browns
    Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
    Mike Holmgren will seriously consider pulling the trigger on Jimmy Clausen, but Berry is an impact player capable of upgrading the Browns' secondary with his playmaking ability. (Previous pick: Joe Haden)

    8. Oakland Raiders
    Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
    Al Davis throws off the skeptics expecting an outlandish pick from the Silver and Black; Suh gives the defense a legitimate difference-maker in the middle of the line. (Previous pick: Anthony Davis)

    9. Buffalo Bills
    Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
    The Bills would like to improve their offensive line, but the early run on offensive tackles leaves them without a worthy option at this point; Clausen becomes Chan Gailey's handpicked choice to direct his wide-open offense. (Previous pick: Bryan Baluga)

    10. Jacksonville Jaguars
    Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
    Aaron Kampman's signing won't prevent the Jaguars from adding another pass rusher to the team's arsenal. After tallying only 12 sacks a season ago, the addition of Morgan completes the team's frontline makeover. (Previous pick: Carlos Dunlap)

    11. Denver Broncos
    Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama
    McClain steps right into the starting lineup on Day 1 as a rock-solid "Mike" linebacker in the Broncos' 3-4. (Previous pick: Dez Bryant)

    12. Miami Dolphins
    Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas
    Dan Williams would also make sense at this pick, but Kindle gives the Dolphins a young athletic rusher to fill the void created by the impending departures of Joey Porter and Jason Taylor. (Previous pick: Kindle)

    13. San Francisco *****
    Joe Haden, CB, Florida
    Haden's disappointing 40 time dropped him out of the top 10, but the talented cover man is the top corner in the draft and gives the ***** a much-needed ball hawk in the secondary. (Previous pick: Eric Berry)


    14. Seattle Seahawks
    C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson
    The Seahawks offense lacks playmakers and speed; Spiller addresses both needs and alleviates some of the pressure on Matt Hasselbeck to carry the unit. (Previous pick: Spiller)

    15. New York Giants
    Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri
    The Giants take the versatile Weatherspoon as a possible replacement for Antonio Pierce. Weatherspoon spent most of his career as a "Will" linebacker but could move to the "Mike" in Perry Fewell's new scheme. (Previous pick: Rolando McClain)

    16. Tennessee Titans
    Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
    The Titans also have needs at defensive end, but Wilson gives the team a gritty corner to pair with Cortland Finnegan in the lineup. (Previous pick: Brian Price)

    17. San Francisco *****
    Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho
    Iupati upgrades the *****' offensive line with his toughness and gives Frank Gore a "road grader" to follow on his jaunts between the tackles. (Previous pick: Iupati)

    18. Pittsburgh Steelers
    Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee
    Casey Hampton returns after signing a lucrative deal, but Williams will share snaps early in his career before taking over the job in a few years. (Previous pick: Terrence Cody)

    19. Atlanta Falcons
    Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan
    The Falcons ranked 28th in pass defense a season ago, but some of their problems could be attributed to a pass rush that only generated 28 sacks. Graham's high motor and dynamic rush skills would be a welcome addition to the team's frontline. (Previous pick: Navorro Bowman)

    20. Houston Texans
    Ryan Mathews, RB, Fresno State
    Mathews is the ideal "one-cut" runner to play in Gary Kubiak's zone-based scheme. The former Bulldog finished second in the nation in rushing (behind Stanford's Toby Gerhart) and is a big-play threat with outstanding size and speed. (Previous pick: Earl Thomas)

    21. Cincinnati Bengals
    Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
    Adding a receiver to the lineup isn't a priority after signing Antonio Bryant during free agency, but this Bryant is too good to pass up at his point. He gives the Bengals a dynamic trio at the position, which should help Carson Palmer regain his Pro Bowl form. (Previous pick: Jermaine Gresham)

    22. New England Patriots
    Jared Odrick, DT, Penn State
    Odrick is a workmanlike interior defender with the skills and versatility to thrive in Bill Belichick's hybrid scheme. (Previous pick: Brandon Graham)

    23. Green Bay Packers
    Charles Brown, OT, USC
    The team is bringing back Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher, but Brown can be groomed as an eventual successor to either player. (Previous pick: Bruce Campbell)

    24. Philadelphia Eagles
    Earl Thomas, S, Texas
    The Eagles missed Brian Dawkins' leadership and ball-hawking ways; Thomas earned high marks in both areas and could emerge as a star in Sean McDermott's attack-style defense. (Previous pick: Everson Griffen)

    25. Baltimore Ravens
    Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
    Anquan Boldin and Donte' Stallworth have added star power to the Ravens' aerial attack, but Gresham would give the team a much-needed vertical threat in the middle of the field. (Previous pick: Arrelious Benn)


    26. Arizona Cardinals
    Jason Pierre-Paul, OLB, South Florida
    As one of the top athletes in the draft, Pierre-Paul has the potential to blossom into a dynamic edge rusher as a pro. (Previous pick: Sam Bradford)

    27. Dallas Cowboys
    Taylor Mays, S, USC
    Mays has exceptional physical tools, but will need some time to develop the instincts and awareness needed to be a star at the position. If the Cowboys' coaching staff can tap into his immense potential, he could be a difference maker in the back end. (Previous pick: Mays)

    28. San Diego Chargers
    Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama
    The release of Jamal Williams threatens to cripple the Chargers defense unless they find a suitable replacement in the middle. Cody's strength at the point of attack will free up the team's linebackers to make plays against the run. (Previous pick: Jahvid Best)

    29. New York Jets
    Demaryius Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech
    Thomas has flown under the radar after breaking a foot during his pre-combine training, but scouts are falling in love with his exceptional physical dimensions (6-foot-3, 224 pounds) and big-play potential. (Previous pick: Kyle Wilson)

    30. Minnesota Vikings
    Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers
    Injuries to Cedric Griffin and Antoine Winfield make addressing the secondary a priority; McCourty's athleticism, toughness and awareness make him an ideal fit in the Vikings' two-deep scheme. (Previous pick: Dan Williams)

    31. Indianapolis Colts
    Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida
    The versatile Pouncey will immediately start at guard, but will eventually serve as Jeff Saturday's successor in the near future. (Previous pick: Jared Odrick)

    32. New Orleans Saints
    Everson Griffen, DE, USC
    The Saints could opt for a linebacker at this spot, but Griffen's rush skills fill an obvious need with Charles Grant no longer in the team's future plans. (Previous pick: Sean Weatherspoon)

    I'm sure that some here would have a heart attack if Suh dropped that far.

    Wow. That is pretty laughable. There is no way that Suh will last that long. I don't know what Brooks is smoking, but it must be some strong stuff.

    Re: Bucky Brooks from NFL.com Mock Draft

    Seriously goofy. How does Bradford go from #26 - which was bizarre in itself; why would Sam drop out of the top 10 if his med reports are good & why to AZ who surely have to give Leinart his shot before spending a first round pick to replace him- to #1 during a period when no new information about the guy has surfaced?

    But waddaya want from a grown man who calls himself Bucky?

    Of course the Lions, Buccaneers, Redskins, Chiefs, Seahawks, Browns don't want Suh!

    Re: Bucky Brooks from NFL.com Mock Draft

    Listening to his commentary during the scouting combine kind of made me raise an eye brow. then i saw his first mock draft which had bradford falling out of the first round. Now he has Suh falling all the way to 8, Haden falling all the way to 13 and Demaryius Thomas and his broken foot going to the Jets at 29 when they just traded for Braylon Edwards last year and could get him in the second in all likely hood....

    What next? Tim Tebow going #1 overall!

    And Clausen declaring that he is going to take up professional rugby instead.

    I suspect a number of these guys do things just to get attention. For instance, I like Mike Mayock, but I think his first big board of every year is just to get people talking.

    Re: Bucky Brooks from NFL.com Mock Draft

    I'm with Nick, I think this is designed to be an intentionally heterodox mock draft to get people to talk about it. And look, it's working!

    What I thought was funny was that it has Suh falling until he gets picked up by... the Raiders. I don't think I've ever seen a mock draft that relied on the Raiders to step in and restore order. Especially considering that Suh's 40 time was ever so slightly worse than McCoy's, I don't think Oakland even has him on their radar. Bruce Campbell, now that's the lineman that Al Davis wants!

    THAT wouldn't surprise me at all. Al Davis is one crazy dude.

    As much as I'd HATE to admit it (and agree with AV)....this mock is simply horrible.
