    Nick's FINAL Three-Round NFL Mock Draft

    *Note: This mock was completed under the assumption that the Carolina Panthers would not match the offer sheet from Chicago for CB Ricky Manning Jr.

    ROUND ONE

    1. Houston Texans
    Reggie Bush, RB, USC
    5'10" - 201 lbs - Junior

    Someone should call the fire department in Houston, because the Texans are sending up some serious smokescreens. Don't believe it though. If Houston stays here, then Reggie Bush is their man and will put butts in the Houston seats.

    2. New Orleans Saints
    Mario Williams, DE, NC State
    6'7" - 295 lbs - Junior

    D'Brickashaw Ferguson may make more sense, but the Saints sound determined to move Jammal Brown to left tackle, and if that move sticks, then it would be hard for New Orleans to pass up on a playmaker like Mario Williams.

    3. Tennessee Titans
    Matt Leinart, QB, USC
    6'4" - 225 lbs - Senior

    The front office likes Vince Young more, but the coaches prefer Leinart, and if the Steve McNair situation plays out the way everyone thinks it will, the Titans will need a passer who will be ready to throw sooner rather than later.

    4. New York Jets
    D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
    6'6" - 312 lbs - Senior

    This is a fairly easy choice for Eric Mangini, who like his mentor Bill Belichick, likely wants to build his team from the inside out starting with the trenches. Ferguson is the best lineman in this draft and fills a big need for New York.

    5. Green Bay Packers
    A.J. Hawk, LB, Ohio State
    6'1" - 248 lbs - Senior

    It's rare that a linebacker goes top ten in the draft, let alone top five. But Hawk has that kind of playmaking ability. He could start at any linebacker position, and Green Bay really needs all the help they can get.

    6. San Fransisco *****
    Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
    6'3" - 263 lbs - Junior

    There was speculation that the ***** were trying to decide between Davis and a defensive player like Huff. But after acquiring an additional first round pick, the choice for the ***** is easy - give Alex Smith a huge offensive weapon.

    7. Oakland Raiders
    Vince Young, QB, Texas
    6'5" - 229 lbs - Junior

    Word has it that Al Davis has a man crush on Vince Young, even though the team scouts would prefer Oakland go in a different direction. No one should consider Aaron Brooks the answer, so Davis will strike quickly on Vince.

    8. Buffalo Bills
    Michael Huff, DB, Texas
    6'0" - 204 lbs - Senior

    Defensive and offensive tackles are bigger needs, but Michael Huff is the kind of playmaker who could really excel in Buffalo's new Cover 2 defensive scheme, and talent for the lines can be found in later rounds.

    9. Detroit Lions
    Winston Justice, OT, USC
    6'6" - 319 lbs - Junior

    With Huff off the board, Rod Marinelli may be tempted to take a Derrick Brooks-type player in Ernie Sims. But I'm not convinced Sims is a top ten prospect, and I believe Justice's workouts make him of better value here.

    10. Arizona Cardinals
    Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
    6'3" - 226 lbs - Senior

    The Cardinals would have liked to see Winston Justice fall to them here. But Arizona will be more than content taking Jay Cutler, who should be the future face behind center for the team when they move into their new stadium.

    11. St. Louis Rams
    Brodrick Bunkley, DT, Florida State
    6'2" - 306 lbs - Senior

    Bunkley fits the role of the quick attacking defensive tackle that Jim Haslett values in his defensive scheme. Furthermore, Bunkley provides the Rams with versatility, since he's capable of playing in the 3-4 alignment as well.

    12. Cleveland Browns
    Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
    6'4" - 338 lbs - Junior

    Dream come true scenario for the Browns. They signed Ted Washington as a short term solution for their defensive line, but Haloti Ngata is an ideal nose tackle that should take over the starting role on Romeo's defense very soon.

    13. Baltimore Ravens
    Ernie Sims, OLB, Florida State
    5'11" - 231 lbs - Senior

    Ray Lewis wants some big boys in front of him, but he's not going to get it here. With the top two defensive tackles off the board, the Ravens will be looking to add some more talent beside Lewis instead of in front of him.

    14. Philadelphia Eagles
    Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
    6'0" - 213 lbs - Junior

    Now that Terrell Owens is gone, the Eagles receivers leave something to be desired. They missed out on trading for Eric Moulds, and probably won't bring in Javon Walker, so adding a potential #1 guy should be a top priority.

    15. Denver Broncos (f/ATL)
    Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio State
    5'10" - 179 lbs - Junior

    There's a lot of talk about the Broncos really liking Chad Jackson, but with the Florida standout off the board, Denver shouldn't have any complaints about taking Santonio Holmes, who some still think may be the top receiver in this draft anyway.

    16. Miami Dolphins
    Jimmy Williams, DB, Virginia Tech
    6'2" - 213 lbs - Senior

    Williams' stock has been falling after poor Combine interviews and a mediocre pro day, but Miami's defensive backfield would be much improved either with Williams at corner or if they could somehow convince him to shift back to safety.

    17. Minnesota Vikings
    Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa
    6'2" - 242 lbs - Senior

    The Vikings need talented linebackers to play in their new defensive scheme, and Greenway is the best option on the board for them. He's an athletic coverage man who makes plays sideline to sideline and is a leader on the field.

    18. Dallas Cowboys
    Manny Lawson, OLB, NC State
    6'5" - 241 lbs - Senior

    Having spent a first round pick last year on Demarcus Ware, the Cowboys will continue to upgrade their linebackers by adding North Carolina State 'tweener Manny Lawson to man the other spot on the outside of their 3-4 defense.

    19. San Diego Chargers
    Tye Hill, CB, Clemson
    5'9" - 185 lbs - Senior

    The Chargers were in need of a cornerback even before they decided to trade away Sammy Davis. Now, the need is even more pressing, and they'll be able to get a great one here in Tye Hill, who may be the best cover man in this class.

    20. Kansas City Chiefs
    Antonio Cromartie, CB, Florida State
    6'2" - 208 lbs - Junior

    Cromartie is a big risk but could be a big reward, and that's exactly what a team like Kansas City needs. With so much firepower on the offensive side of the ball, the Chiefs would love to take a defensive playmaker here to try and even things out.

    21. New England Patriots
    DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis
    5'9" - 201 lbs - Senior

    The last first-round linebacker the Patriots selected was Andy Katzenmoyer, so they may be a bit gunshy on taking another Ohio State prospect in Carpenter. Instead, the Patriots could secure the future of their backfield by adding Williams.

    22. San Francisco ***** (f/DEN)
    Kamerion Wimbley, OLB, Florida State
    6'3" - 248 lbs - Senior

    Losing Julian Peterson to free agency was a big blow to the ***** defense, and I believe that's one of the reasons they traded up to this pick - they can still take Davis at sixth overall, and upgrade their defense here by taking Wimbley.

    23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Marcus McNeill, OT, Auburn
    6'7" - 336 lbs - Senior

    I'm sure that offensive tackle Marcus McNeill would love to reunite with the guy he paved the way for at Auburn, running back Carnell Williams. It's an added benefit that the Bucs actually have a big need at offensive tackle.

    24. Cincinnati Bengals
    Donte Whitner, DB, Ohio State
    5'10" - 204 lbs - Junior

    The Bengals are hoping Dexter Jackson can find the magic he had in '02-'03 but somehow lost in '04-'05. If he doesn't, Cincinnati will have a great insurance policy here in Whitner, who may even be able to play some cornerback as well.

    25. New York Giants
    Jonathan Joseph, CB, South Carolina
    5'11" - 193 lbs - Junior

    Signing LaVar Arrington means the Giants no longer need a first round linebacker. Jonathan Joseph is great value here, and should compete immediate for time in nickel packages before eventually taking over for Sam Madison.

    26. Chicago Bears
    Sinorice Moss, WR, Miami
    5'8" - 185 lbs - Senior

    The Bears still want a speedy vertical receiver after missing out on Antwaan Randle El as a free agent. Knowing what Sinorice's brother Santana has been able to to do in the NFL, the younger Moss should be an easy choice for Chicago.

    27. Carolina Panthers
    LenDale White, RB, USC
    6'0" - 238 lbs - Junior

    Word came out a while ago that it was Carolina that advised USC running back LenDale White not to run at his pro day. Now there's word that White actually has a minor hamstring tear. It won't matter to the Panthers; they'll take him regardless.

    28. Jacksonville Jaguars
    Marcedes Lewis, TE, UCLA
    6'6" - 261 lbs - Senior

    Kyle Brady is playing on his last legs, and is more of a blocking tight end than a receiving threat. Marcedes Lewis still carries that late first round early second round grade, and would be a tremendous addition to the Jaguars offense.

    29. New York Jets (f/ATL via DEN)
    Bobby Carpenter, LB, Ohio State
    6'2" - 256 lbs - Senior

    While his mentor Bill Belichick decided to pass on Carpenter, Eric Mangini won't. Mangini wants to transition the Jets to the 3-4 defense, and needs to stock up on players that fit the scheme. Carpenter is certainly one of them.

    30. Indianapolis Colts
    Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota
    5'11" - 217 lbs - Junior

    Another dream scenario, this time for the Colts. The Colts seemed rather indifferent about losing Edgerrin James in free agency, and haven't made any significant attempts to replace him. That will change with this first round pick.

    31. Seattle Seahawks
    Kelly Jennings, CB, Miami
    5'10" - 178 lbs - Senior

    Unless the Seahawks decide to sign Ty Law before the draft, I think it's almost a lock that they upgrade their secondary with one of their first two picks. It would be hard for Seattle to pass on Kelly Jennings, whose stock has been rising.

    32. Pittsburgh Steelers
    Jason Allen, DB, Tennessee
    6'0" - 209 lbs - Senior

    Pittsburgh fans will be heartbroken to see LenDale White - considered their future Jerome Bettis - off the table. Ryan Clark was a nice signing, but is better as a back-up, which makes Jason Allen at the end of the first round a great choice.



    ROUND TWO

    33. Houston Texans
    Eric Winston, OT, Miami
    It's no secret the Texans need help at the offensive tackle position.

    34. New Orleans Saints
    Nick Mangold, C, Ohio State
    The Saints find a great replacement for LeCharles Bentley in Nick Mangold.

    35. New York Jets
    Gabe Watson, DT, Michigan
    Watson is a perfect 3-4 nose tackle for Mangini's new defense.

    36. Green Bay Packers
    Richard Marshall, CB, Fresno State
    The Packers can't count on Ahmad Carroll to start, can they?

    37. Denver Broncos (f/SF)
    Leonard Pope, TE, Georgia
    The Broncos get another monster offensive weapon here in Leonard Pope.

    38. Oakland Raiders
    Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State
    Oakland's pass rush needs a major upgrade, even after signing Lance Johnstone.

    39. Tennessee Titans
    D'Qwell Jackson, LB, Maryland
    No-brainer pick for the Titans here, who are in need of an athletic middle linebacker.

    40. Detroit Lions
    DeMeco Ryans, LB, Alabama
    Ryans is a first round talent that the Lions would be happy to have here.

    41. Arizona Cardinals
    Ko Simpson, S, South Carolina
    Arizona needs to find someone with talent to play next to Adrian Wilson.

    42. Buffalo Bills
    Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College
    The slipping Kiwi would provide Buffalo's defense with great pass-rush potential.

    43. Cleveland Browns
    Abdul Hodge, LB, Iowa
    Hodge is slightly undersized, but would make a nice combo with Andre Davis.

    44. Baltimore Ravens
    Davin Joseph, G, Oklahoma
    The Ravens running game won't get back on track without O-line help.

    45. Philadelphia Eagles
    Thomas Howard, OLB, UTEP
    Potential first rounder that the Eagles just cannot pass on here.

    46. St. Louis Rams
    Joe Klopfenstein, TE, Colorado
    Good size and speed makes the rising Klopfenstein a clear choice for the Rams.

    47. Atlanta Falcons
    Ashton Youboty, CB, Ohio State
    The Falcons need talent across from DeAngelo Hall, and Youboty is the best on the board.

    48. Minnesota Vikings
    Darnell Bing, S, USC
    Tank Williams is not a sure thing for the Vikes, and Offord has legal problems.

    49. Dallas Cowboys
    Danieal Manning, DB, Abilene Christian
    Manning is a CB/FS 'tweener who can play center field for the Cowboys.

    50. San Diego Chargers
    Daryn Colledge, OT, Boise State
    Chargers need depth all along the offensive line, and they start with tackle here.

    51. Minnesota Vikings (f/MIA)
    Max Jean-Gilles, G, Georgia
    Should compete immediately with Liwienski and Goldberg for that RG spot.

    52. New England Patriots
    Demetrius Williams, WR, Oregon
    Patriots continue to address the offense by adding Williams at receiver.

    53. Washington Redskins
    Cedric Griffin, CB, Texas
    Washington's only first day pick will be spent addressing defensive depth.

    54. Kansas City Chiefs
    Maurice Stovall, WR, Notre Dame
    Stovall is a big target who can be groomed to start down the road.

    55. Cincinnati Bengals
    Mark Anderson, DE, Alabama
    Bengals need an impact pass rusher, and Anderson is rising up the charts.

    56. New York Giants
    John McCargo, DT, NC State
    Potential first round DT is a great value pick for the Giants.

    57. Chicago Bears
    Anthony Fasano, TE, Notre Dame
    Fasano's ability as both a receiver and blocker makes him attractive here.

    58. Carolina Panthers
    Daniel Bullocks, S, Nebraska
    With Thomas Davis moving to OLB, a true strong safety is needed.

    59. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    DeMario Minter, CB, Georgia
    The Bucs need to find depth and a future starter in the secondary.

    60. Jacksonville Jaguars
    Joseph Addai, RB, LSU
    The Jaguars will be thrilled to see Addai fall this far.

    61. Denver Broncos
    Claude Wroten, DT, LSU
    Despite character concerns, Wroten should be the choice here for Denver.

    62. Indianapolis Colts
    Roger McIntosh, OLB, Miami
    Would be taken much higher if not for some durability concerns.

    63. Seattle Seahawks
    Daryl Tapp, DE, Virginia Tech
    With cornerback addressed, the 'Hawks look for help on the defensive line.

    64. Pittsburgh Steelers
    Derek Hagan, WR, Arizona State
    Gimmick receivers can be had later; Hagan could compete for a starting job.



    ROUND THREE

    65. Houston Texans
    Pat Watkins, S, Florida State
    Houston has probably the least impressive safety combo in the league.

    66. Houston Texans (f/NO)
    Rodrique Wright, DT, Texas
    A new defensive scheme means finding new players to fit into it.

    67. Green Bay Packers
    Brian Calhoun, RB, Wisconsin
    Ahmad Green and Najeh Davenport only signed one-year contracts.

    68. Denver Broncos (f/SF)
    Ray Edwards, DE, Purdue
    Broncos continue to address their D-line by taking Edwards here.

    69. Oakland Raiders
    Charles Spencer, OG, Pittsburgh
    It would be hard for the Raiders to pass on talented interior line youth.

    70. Buffalo Bills (f/TEN)
    Ryan O'Callaghan, OT, California
    The Bills have passed on tackles so far, but get their man in O'Callaghan.

    71. New York Jets
    Kellen Clemons, QB, Oregon
    The Jets sound more than content to pass on the elite QBs early and take Clemons here.

    72. Arizona Cardinals
    Jon Scott, OT, Texas
    Talent is needed if Warner/Cutler are going to stay upright.

    73. Buffalo Bills
    Jonathan Lewis, DT, Virginia Tech
    Reliable one-gap defender who could start next to Larry Tripplett.

    74. Detroit Lions
    Roman Harper, FS, Alabama
    Harper is the kind of ballhawking safety the Lions need.

    75. New England Patriots (f/BAL)
    Gerris Wilkinson, LB, Georgia Tech
    A former college end and linebacker, Wilkinson is great value here.

    76. Philadelphia Eagles
    Babatunde Oshinowo, DT, Stanford
    Good nose tackle who can occupy blockers and stuff the run.

    77. St. Louis Rams
    Chris Chester, OL, Oklahoma
    Chester can be part of the youth movement the Rams have been having on the O-line.

    78. Cleveland Browns
    Stanley McClover, OLB, Auburn
    Underrated 'tweener prospect that could be a beast for the Browns.

    79. Atlanta Falcons
    Maurice Drew, RB, UCLA
    Falcons love Drew, and he can contribute to their backfield rotation.

    80. Dallas Cowboys
    Taitusi Lutui, G, USC
    Should compete immediate with Kyle Kosier for Larry Allen's old job.

    81. San Diego Chargers
    Greg Jennings, WR, Western Michigan
    Even after resigning Parker, the Chargers need talent at receiver.

    82. Miami Dolphins
    Jon Alston, OLB, Stanford
    Could allow Crowder to move inside when Zach Thomas hangs 'em up.

    83. Minnesota Vikings
    Brodie Croyle, QB, Alabama
    Vikings finally get their quarterback of the future in Croyle.

    84. San Francisco ***** (f/WAS)
    Anthony Smith, FS, Syracuse
    Smith is a clear upgrade over Keith Lewis and Mike Adams.

    85. Kansas City Chiefs
    Charlie Whitehurst, QB, Clemson
    Trent Green and Damon Huard will have a combined age of 69 when the season starts.

    86. New England Patriots
    Alan Zemaitis, CB, Penn State
    Zemaitis is the kind of tough physical corner the Patriots like.

    87. New York Giants
    Martin Nance, WR, Miami (OH)
    Can rotate with Carter and Tyree when a bigger target is needed.

    88. Carolina Panthers (f/CHI)
    Jeremy Trueblood, OT, Boston College
    Panthers have been searching for a potential left tackle for a while now.

    89. Carolina Panthers
    David Thomas, TE, Texas
    Thomas is a high character player with great smarts for the game.

    90. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    Orien Harris, DT, Miami
    Bucs need more depth on the D-line, and Harris could follow in Sapp's shoes.

    91. Cincinnati Bengals
    Dominique Byrd, TE, USC
    Caught one pass from Palmer at USC; should catch more in Cincy.

    92. Jacksonville Jaguars
    Keith Ellison, OLB, Oregon State
    Can be very effective with Henderson and Stroud occpuying blockers in front of him.

    93. Atlanta Falcons (f/DEN)
    Andrew Whitworth, OT, LSU
    Whitworth provides much needed depth at tackle for the Falcons.

    94. Indianapolis Colts
    Fred Matua, OL, USC
    Versatile lineman who can open holes in the running game for Maroney.

    95. Minnesota Vikings (f/SEA)
    Dee Webb, CB, Florida
    Minnesota needs some quality depth behind Winfield and Smoot.

    96. Pittsburgh Steelers
    Parys Haralson, DE/OLB, Tennessee
    Intriguing prospect that could be an excellent edge rusher in the 3-4.

    97. New York Jets (comp)
    Victor Adeyanju, DE, Indiana
    Very good size and could play end in Mangini's 3-4 scheme.

    Any reason why? He carries a second round grade and is the best TE available at that spot and certainly better than any LB we could get there, IMO.

    Feedback is great, but some reasons why you like or don't like something would be even better.

    Do'nt want a DE in the first round. History repeats itself. And I do'nt want to take that chance. And in R2 I'd rather take Max Jean-Giles.

    Re: Nick's FINAL Three-Round NFL Mock Draft and Full Seven-Round Rams Mock Draft

    I think we need a LB out of the first day. I dont see us staying at 11 at all. If we cant move up and grab Hawk or Huff then we will move down a few places, and maybe pick up someone like Sims

    History repeats itself? Not really.

    The Bengals certainly didn't think so, after selecting QB Carson Palmer only four years after taking third overall bust Akili Smith.

    Arizona had no concerns taking Larry Fitzgerald with their first pick despite drafting the unimpressive Bryant Johnson with the first pick the year before and David Boston four years before that.

    Minnesota was more than happy taking DT Kevin Williams in 2003 despite bombing on DT Dimitrius Underwood in 1999.

    The Rams didn't have a problem trading up for Steven Jackson despite drafting such first round RB busts as Trung Canidate and Lawrence Phillips.

    History repeating itself doesn't hold much ground in terms of the draft, IMO. Besides, if history repeats itself, then we shouldn't draft a linebacker or a safety either, since Robert Thomas and Adam Archuleta aren't even with the team anymore.

    As for Jean-Gilles, I figured we already have a run-blocking guard who has weight control problems in Claude Terrell. I'm really not sure why some people here are so high on him when we have a similar player already.

    Well, I wasn't projecting trades, so...

    As for a LB, I pick one up early on the second day. I just didn't see any value in the second or third round that was better than the players I had the Rams selecting. McIntosh over Klopfenstein? Not IMO. Alston or Ellison over Chester? No way. If Gerris Wilkinson had fallen to us, maybe.

    If the draft goes this way we just aren't positioned well to take a linebacker. All the best go in late 1 or early 2. I agree, though. I wouldn't be very happy if we didn't snag a linebacker somewhere in there. I'd be tempted to see what it would take to move up into the bottom of the first if Carpenter is there at 29.

    I like the players we did get. The problem is that saying it's a nice draft except for that hole at linebacker is like saying that's a nice pair of jeans except for that hole in the crotch. If this did happen, there are still a few linebackers left on the board I'd be interested in, particularly Terne Nande, Kai Parham, and maybe Spencer Havner or Pierre Woods. So I guess it's not so bad.

    I for one have no problem with us taking a DT. If we avoid drafting at the position because we're afraid to get burned, we wind up hurting ourselves anyway.

    Oh i like the first three picks, i feel they are all good. I like the Klopfenstein pick, that guy will be a good weapon at TE. Bunkley looks good, and a rotation of Bunkley, Glover and Kennedy would be very good. And it would be nice to come out of the draft with some interior OL help.


    But i dont forsee it actually happening on draft day because i think the Rams will make every effort to trade up.

    I should note that if Thomas Howard made it by the Eagles right before us in the second round, he would have been the pick.

    Also, if we're speculating about this mock and trading up to get a LB, I wouldn't try to trade up to 29 for Carpenter, but rather would trade up to Detroit's second round pick and take Ryans.

    Trading to 29 would cost us our second and third, while trading to 40 would cost us a second and fourth, and you could make the case that you're getting a better player in Ryans depending on where you stand.

    That works, too. I hadn't noticed Ryans was there in the second.

    Re: Nick's FINAL Three-Round NFL Mock Draft

    Bunkley, Klop, Chester.....that's a very workable first day, especially considering the choices made in front of us. Bunkley is the top up-side D-linemen not named Mario, and will stay on the field for both our 4-3 and 3-4 alignments. Klop can be a poor man's Todd Heap, which I'll take over Manu at this point. Chester has a ton of upside with only a year at the position. He won't contribute immediately, but with a little time on the practice field and in the weight room, he could stand next to RI as two of the most athletic OL in the league within a couple of years.

    I sure hope this is not what happens.

    Bunkley over Ngata?

    I've been with you all along, but I really hope we don't go in this directtion.
