    Nick's Updated Two-Round NFL Mock & Full Rams Mock Draft (4/2)

    We're into the month of April, which means the draft is just around the corner! There's still plenty of things that need to take shape, starting with a lot of uncertainty at the top. Let's have a look at a new scenario to consider for the 2011 Draft! As always, constructive comments and feedback are appreciated!



    ROUND ONE
    1. Carolina Panthers: Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
    -This pick is still very much up in the air, which usually isn’t the case as the draft closes in. Momentum seems to be building for a quarterback though, and despite a scathing Pro Football Weekly report on his character, Newton is still in the running.

    2. Denver Broncos: Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama
    -Alabama’s Marcell Dareus is really just an ideal pick for a Denver Broncos team shifting back to the 4-3 alignment in 2011. Dareus capitalized on a strong offseason, bypassing Auburn’s Nick Fairley as the top defensive tackle in this class.

    3. Buffalo Bills: Von Miller, LB, Texas A&M
    -The Bills are looking for an impact player with this pick, meaning they will look long and hard at quarterbacks here. But if they’re confident they can get a passer in the second round, a pass rusher like Von Miller makes a lot of sense.

    4. Cincinnati Bengals: Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
    -Will Cincinnati come to terms with Carson Palmer’s threats to retire being a reality? They’d like to think he’s bluffing, but all indications are he is not. That means a signal-caller like Blaine Gabbert could be the direction the Bengals go.

    5. Arizona Cardinals: Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
    -The Cardinals would have loved to see Von Miller here, but he’s off the board. They’ll consider Robert Quinn as a boost to their pass rush, but it’s hard to pass on arguably the draft’s best prospect in Patrick Peterson.

    6. Cleveland Browns: A.J. Green, WR, Georgia
    -The Browns are in a sticky situation. Do they take the top receiver in this class in A.J. Green, or do they add a much needed edge rusher in Quinn as they transition back to a four-man front? Right now, my money would be on Green.

    7. San Francisco *****: Robert Quinn, LB, North Carolina
    -San Francisco lucks out by seeing Quinn still on the board, and waste no time in selecting him here. He’ll be a nice addition to their defense, able to contribute to their pass rush in a number of different ways.

    8. Tennessee Titans: Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
    -Fairley’s former college defensive line coach now works for the Titans. Is that a guarantee that he’ll land here if he’s available? Not really, but it would be a nice match for a Tennessee team that clearly wants an improvement on their defensive line.

    9. Dallas Cowboys: Tyron Smith, OT, USC
    -Cornerback could certainly be an option, as it may be the Cowboys’ biggest need. But they also need some offensive tackle help. Tyron Smith could be plugged in immediately at right tackle, or could eventually take over on the left side for Doug Free.

    10. Washington Redskins: Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
    -With the top quarterbacks and pass rushers off the board, Washington is going to have to reevaluate things. A defensive lineman could easily be the pick here, but in this scenario, it’s hard to find a better value than Julio Jones.

    11. Houston Texans: Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
    -Houston spent a first round pick on cornerback Kareem Jackson last year, but don’t expect that to stop them from spending another one on Nebraska’s Prince Amukamara if he’s available. They could use all the DB help they can get.

    12. Minnesota Vikings: Da’Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson
    -What a slide for Bowers, who was initially a contender for the first overall pick. Health concerns have caused him to slide out of the Top Ten, though the Vikings’ need for a defensive end could stop that slide at pick #12.

    13. Detroit Lions: Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College
    -Interesting situation for Detroit, who would have loved to see Amukamara fall to them with this selection. Instead, they’ll do their best to protect their franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford by taking the best offensive lineman available.

    14. St. Louis Rams: Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois
    - With the top receivers off the board, St. Louis will probably look to address their defensive line in some way. The Rams had a large contingent at the Illinois Pro Day to see Corey Liuget, so either they’re executing a great bluff or they’re legitimately interested.

    15. Miami Dolphins: Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
    -This is a standard (and thus boring) pick in most mocks, but there’s a reason it’s being overplayed. The status of the Miami backfield is up in the air, and barring a trade down, Ingram is better value than any interior offensive lineman.

    16. Jacksonville Jaguars: Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri
    -Missouri’s Aldon Smith could still go higher than this, if teams believe he has the chance to be an outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. But for Jacksonville, he’d make a great addition to an anemic pass rush.

    17. New England Patriots (f/OAK): J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin
    -Watt has had an outstanding offseason, really wowing some people with his workout numbers at the Combine. That could earn him a selection in the Top 15, but if he’s available here, New England should pounce.

    18. San Diego Chargers: Cameron Jordan, DE, California
    -California’s Cameron Jordan looked unblockable at the Senior Bowl, and has the ideal size and skillset to play as a five-technique defensive end in a three-man front. San Diego needs to restock at the position, so it’s a great fit for both sides.

    19. New York Giants: Nate Solder, OT, Colorado
    -Nate Solder has had an up-and-down offseason, but there’s no denying his athletic ability. David Diehl’s presence at tackle would allow Solder time to develop before he eventually takes over on the left side.

    20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
    -Great scenario for the Buccaneers, who ultimately may have to trade up if they’d like to secure a top pass rusher. But here, Purdue’s Ryan Kerrigan slips out of the teens and falls into the needy lap of Tampa Bay.

    21. Kansas City Chiefs: Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
    -With two Top 5 picks already on the defensive line, is nose tackle really that much of a priority? Answer, yes. Baylor’s Phil Taylor has the potential to be a plugger at the next level, which is a vital piece of any successful 3-4 scheme.

    22. Indianapolis Colts: Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin
    -Protecting Peyton Manning is going to be a priority for the Colts moving forward, so look for them to find an offensive lineman early in this draft. Wisconsin’s Gabe Carimi has the versatility to help them at any number of spots.

    23. Philadelphia Eagles: Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
    -If Jimmy Smith’s character checks out, then he’s a no-brainer pick for the Eagles at the 23-spot. There’s clearly a need for a starting corner opposite of Asante Samuel, and Smith is the best available at the position.

    24. New Orleans Saints: Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa
    -Adrian Clayborn was once considered a Top 15-20 talent in this draft class, but there’s a chance he isn’t even taken in the first round. The Saints could be a good suitor here at pick #24, as they need some help at defensive end.

    25. Seattle Seahawks: Mike Pouncey, OG, Florida
    -Finding a capable interior lineman will be a goal of the Seahawks in the 2011 Draft, and some would argue that Mike Pouncey is a steal here. While I’m not convinced he’s as good a prospect as his brother was, he’d be a nice fit for the Seahawks.

    26. Baltimore Ravens: Muhammad Wilkerson, DL, Temple
    -With Trevor Pryce gone and Cory Redding turning 31-years-old later this year, it may be time for the Ravens to strike on a new defensive lineman. Temple’s Muhammad Wilkerson is getting a lot of looks from teams running a three-man front.

    27. Atlanta Falcons: Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
    -The Falcons really need to surround quarterback Matt Ryan with some more weapons on offense, so they’ll give a long look to the receivers available with this pick. Torrey Smith is the best remaining on the board, and could be an option for Atlanta.

    28. New England Patriots: Justin Houston, LB, Georgia
    -There’s certainly no guarantee that Justin Houston will be available in the late first round, but opinions on him as a pro prospect seem to be mixed. Still, he’s a very intriguing 3-4 OLB candidate, and the Patriots have a large need there.

    29. Chicago Bears: Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State
    -Like the Colts, the Bears need to do a better job protecting their quarterback. They’ll say they’re confident in their talent at tackle, but don’t be surprised if they jump on a solid prospect like Sherrod to try and shore up the line.

    30. New York Jets: Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State
    -This is great value for a Jets team who is desperately in need of help across the defensive line. Ohio State’s Cameron Heyward is an ideal five-technique defensive end and should be in the starting line-up in no time.

    31. Pittsburgh Steelers: Danny Watkins, OG, Baylor
    -Danny Watkins played left tackle at Baylor, but is really making waves as an offensive guard prospect. Whether it’s at tackle or guard, the Steelers need an upgrade on their line, and Watkins would be a nice fit for them.

    32. Green Bay Packers: Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA
    -Akeem Ayers turned some heads with some poor workout numbers at the Combine, and while he recovered a bit at his pro day, he’s still likely in for a bit of a slide. For Green Bay, he’s a tantalizing option at the end of round one.


    ROUND TWO
    33. New England Patriots (f/CAR): Ben Ijalana, OL, Villanova
    -Ijalana made a name for himself at the FCS level, but he’s a talented prospect who should fit into the hole at right guard in New England.

    34. Buffalo Bills: Jake Locker, QB, Washington
    -Locker could go as high as ten or fall into the second round; if he’s available here, he’s a great pick for the Bills.

    35. Cincinnati Bengals: Jon Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh
    -Now that the Bengals have their quarterback, they need to give him a big target to throw to.

    36. Denver Broncos: Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame
    -Denver’s personnel at tight end is abysmal, and Rudolph is the best at the position in this class.

    37. Cleveland Browns: Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State
    -After going receiver in round one, the Browns will be pleased to see an outstanding 4-3 tackle prospect waiting for them in round two.

    38. Arizona Cardinals: Brooks Reed, LB, Arizona
    -Brooks Reed stays in-state as he’s taken by the Cardinals to improve their pass rush at outside linebacker.

    39. Tennessee Titans: Christian Ponder, QB, Florida State
    -The Titans missed out on one of the top two quarterbacks in round one, but find a nice candidate in the second round in Ponder.

    40. Dallas Cowboys: Aaron Williams, CB, Texas
    -What a coup for the Cowboys, as they’ve found a potential first-round corner prospect here in Aaron Williams.

    41. Washington Redskins: Christian Ballard, DE, Iowa
    -The Redskins need more talent on their defensive line if they’re going to make this transition to the 3-4 defense work.

    42. Houston Texans: Jabaal Sheard, LB, Pittsburgh
    -The Texans improved their secondary in the first round; now, they need to improve their personnel at outside linebacker.

    43. Minnesota Vikings: Andy Dalton, QB, TCU
    -Andy Dalton is getting some legit Top 40 consideration, and the Vikings don’t have a third round pick to use on a quarterback.

    44. Detroit Lions: Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
    -Outstanding value for Detroit, as they find a cornerback who was once considered an option for them in round one.

    45. San Francisco *****: Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada
    -While new head coach Jim Harbaugh may prefer his guy in Andrew Luck next year, he needs someone to start grooming now.

    46. Denver Broncos (f/MIA): Quan Sturdivant, LB, North Carolina
    -The only linebacker on the Broncos worth mentioning is D.J. Williams, so they’ll need to find him some help.

    47. St. Louis Rams: Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami
    -While Rams beat writer Jim Thomas is skeptical of the Rams’ interest in Hankerson, he’s one of the best remaining receivers on the board.

    48. Oakland Raiders: Rodney Hudson, OL, Florida State
    -A number of Oakland offensive lineman are scheduled for free agency, and Hudson has the versatility to play a number of spots inside.

    49. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
    -Ryan Mallett’s Clausen-like fall is over, as Jacksonville recognizes the value of having a young quarterback to groom for the future.

    50. San Diego Chargers: Martez Wilson, LB, Illinois
    -San Diego continues to address their defense by taking a pass rushing threat in Martez Wilson.

    51. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Bruce Carter, LB, North Carolina
    -Outstanding value for the Buccaneers, as Carter – if healthy – should step into their starting line-up immediately.

    52. New York Giants: Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois
    -With the future of Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs a bit uncertain, New York may be tempted to secure another talent for their backfield.

    53. Indianapolis Colts: Titus Young, WR, Boise State
    -Reggie Wayne isn’t getting any younger, and nearly every other receiver has had injury issues. Some youth may be needed.

    54. Philadelphia Eagles: Marcus Cannon, OL, TCU
    -Philadelphia could use an upgrade at right guard or tackle, and Marcus Cannon could project at either spot.

    55. Kansas City Chiefs: Stefan Wisniewski, C, Penn State
    -Starting center Casey Wiegmann could be retiring this offseason, making the center position a priority.

    56. New Orleans Saints: Mason Foster, LB, Washington
    -The Saints are tempted to look at a running back, but they desperately need more help next to Jonathan Vilma.

    57. Seattle Seahawks: Curtis Brown, CB, Texas
    -The Seahawks need help at cornerback, which could prompt them to reunite Brown with former Texas teammate Earl Thomas.

    58. Baltimore Ravens: Jerrel Jernigan, WR, Troy
    -Don’t be surprised if the small but speedy Jernigan finds a way into the second round, particularly to a Ravens team in need of some speedy.

    59. Atlanta Falcons: Allen Bailey, DE, Miami
    -Bailey has all the skill but hasn’t lived up to it yet; can the Falcons get him to reach his potential?

    60. New England Patriots: Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech
    -Running back isn’t the biggest need for the Patriots, but it’s hard to pass on Williams at this point.

    61. Chicago Bears: Marvin Austin, DT, North Carolina
    -While I’m not sure I’m buying the first-round talk with Austin, he’d be intriguing for a Bears team whose interior DL is in flux.

    62. San Diego Chargers (f/NYJ): Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky
    -The Chargers could lose one if not two top receivers this offseason, meaning they’ll need to start planning for some replacements.

    63. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia
    -Dowling has first round talent, if he can stay on the field. The Steelers definitely need some talent opposite of Ike Taylor.

    64. Green Bay Packers: Orlando Franklin, OL, Miami
    -The Packers used a first round pick last year to better protect Aaron Rodgers, and should consider more options this year as well.



    FULL RAMS DAFT

    Round Three: Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma State
    -Finding a change-of-pace ‘back behind Steven Jackson should be a priority for St. Louis, and Hunter is a great third-round option.

    Round Four: K.J. Wright, LB, Mississippi State
    -Aside from middle linebacker James Laurinaitis, the Rams have nothing to write home about at linebacker.

    Round Five: Zach Hurd, OG, Connecticut
    -Hurd could surprise some people as a mid-round interior lineman who could emerge as a solid pro player.

    Round Seven: Chris Prosinski, S, Wyoming
    -Prosinski’s smarts and versatility make him worth taking a flier on here in the late rounds.

    Round Seven: D’Aundre Reed, DE, Arizona
    -Reed’s athletic ability may entice Steve Spagnuolo, who is looking for contributors at defensive end.

    Re: Nick's Updated Two-Round NFL Mock & Full Rams Mock Draft (4/2)

    Most of your mock draft I agree with I can see the Bills taking Gabbert but no biggie. If I were drafting for the Rams I would take Cameron Jordan over Corey Liuget.

    Jordan's a possible option, though there may be some questions about his fit in the 4-3 defense. Aldon Smith is another option and would be my personal choice there more than likely, but I went with Liuget based mostly on the Rams' presence at his pro day and rumored interest.

    Re: Nick's Updated Two-Round NFL Mock & Full Rams Mock Draft (4/2)

    What's your take on Luiget, Nick?

    I'd be okay with this Rams draft, and I have no reason to be too upset with it ... I think I'd prefer a guy like Aldon Smith or Kerrigan over Luiget at this point. It's probably the same story with Titus Young over Hankerson, but it's all preference. If you were making the calls instead of making a realistic projection, who would you draft?

    Could you see the Rams coming out of the first two round without a WR? I think it's a possibility if guys like Martez Wilson and Bruce Carter are still on the board.

    Props to you on what seems like a realistic mock.

    Re: Nick's Updated Two-Round NFL Mock & Full Rams Mock Draft (4/2)

    Good job, Nick.

    I would like for you to explain what you see in Luiget that makes him the better prospect than S. Paea. I have noticed many mocks lately have the Rams taking Luiget at 14. Seems like this guy has come out of nowhere in recent weeks.

    what say ye?

    Re: Nick's Updated Two-Round NFL Mock & Full Rams Mock Draft (4/2)

    I'm still looking at Jones. Don't think Washington can afford to pass on Jake Locker at 10.

    I'm not crazy about the value at the 14-spot, but it sounds like Liuget has emerged as a potential Top 20 player whom the Rams seem to like. He certainly fills a need for that penetrating three-technique tackle, and if the top two WRs are off the board, then it's an open contest at that point.

    My personal preference would be Smith at that spot as well, based on value and positional importance. But Liuget is certainly an option if the Rams would like to improve the questionable long-term stability at defensive tackle.

    I do prefer Hankerson over Young in the second round, though I'm not particularly in love with any of the second round receivers to be honest with you. That said, I don't buy into the DeSean Jackson comparisons to Young. I don't think Young has the comparable deep speed that Jackson has, and like Jackson, I'm concerned with Young's ability to hold up at the next level given his size/bulk. Plus, there are some attitude concerns there.

    Liuget has better height, better and more developed pass rush ability, and doesn't have the same knee concerns that have kind of speckled Paea's history in college. I think if you're looking for a three-technique tackle, Liuget gives you a better package, whereas Paea's best home may be as a 4-3 nose given his strength and ability to play the run.

    My understanding is that Paea has been a three-year starter at Oregon State, but is still described as raw and has not developed many pass rush moves. That's a little bit concerning when I'm talking about a Top 15 first round pick, specifically if there are some healthy issues.

    As for Liuget, I do kind of agree that he's emerged quickly as a potential option for the Rams. His rise this offseason has kind of reminded me of Louisville's Amobi Okoye a few drafts ago, who began the process as a late first or early second round pick and then ended up I believe on the outskirts of the Top Ten. Didn't really work out for Okoye, so I hope Liuget fairs better, especially if the Rams believe he's a good option. My personal preference would be to grab him later in the first round, where the value is better.

    It just depends on how they value him. If they view Locker as being a late first round kind of guy, then they shouldn't reach for him at 10. I think Washington is probably the highest Locker could go at this point, with Minnesota also being an option. But the possible emergence of some possible late first early second round second-tier quarterbacks (Ponder, Kaepernick, Dalton) may allow teams to think they can address the position later rather than reach for need.

    Re: Nick's Updated Two-Round NFL Mock & Full Rams Mock Draft (4/2)

    If the two WR's are not there then I would like to trade down to the 20-30 range if we could find any trading partners. I like several players in the 20 -30 range. Torrey Smith had as good of numbers as Jones and I believe the Rams have legitimate intrest in him. He is just 1 inch shorter then Jones.

    Here are some 20-30 range players I would be interested in.
    WR - Torrey Smith 6’1 205 4.4 40
    OG - Danny Watkins 6’3 310

    DT - Muhammad Wilkerson 6’4 315 4.95 40
    DT - Steven Paea 6’1 305 4.95 40

    My Guage has most of those guys available in the second at the moment, possibly to the point where at least one could conceivably fall to us. Wilkerson is probably the exception, but he's been such a late riser that I'd be a little hesitant to pull the trigger in the early 20's anyway.

    Re: Nick's Updated Two-Round NFL Mock & Full Rams Mock Draft (4/2)

    Well, BBQ, if we trade down to the mid 20's and all four are still there, I'd be happy to trade back a second time to the early 2nd so one of those teams can grab a QB! Start stockpiling picks the like the Pats!
    I believe!

    Re: Nick's Updated Two-Round NFL Mock & Full Rams Mock Draft (4/2)

    Honestly i think Corey Luiget is a way better fit for our Defense. He is defiantly turing into a top 20 pick. He has 3 key concerns: Gap integrity, durability, and predictability. All of which can be coached. When playing inside an NFL defense scheme Luiget will get gap assignments and he is very coachable player. His durability concerns can be eliminated with spags substitution packages. Luiget gets caught using the same pass rush moves however with spags coaching him he can defiantly work on them.

    Last year we allowed to many good rushes up the middle. However Luiget can definitely help there. Luiget has plenty of power and uses his bull rush effectively so he may demand an initial double team on runs up the middle which will then free up Laurinaitis.

    Luiget reminds me of Barry Coefield. He will really help penetrate and cause major trouble in the opposing teams run game. However i think Luiget is a far better pass rusher than Coefield. Luiget is just a guy that really fits Spags scheme and has great potential with out character concerns looks like a good marriage.

His durability concerns can be eliminated with spags substitution packages. Luiget gets caught using the same pass rush moves however with spags coaching him he can defiantly work on them.

    Last year we allowed to many good rushes up the middle. However Luiget can definitely help there. Luiget has plenty of power and uses his bull rush effectively so he may demand an initial double team on runs up the middle which will then free up Laurinaitis.

    Luiget reminds me of Barry Coefield. He will really help penetrate and cause major trouble in the opposing teams run game. However i think Luiget is a far better pass rusher than Coefield. Luiget is just a guy that really fits Spags scheme and has great potential with out character concerns looks like a good marriage.
    I didn't think he had any durability issues but stamina may be an issue.

    Even though all the recent mocks have prepared me, I feel like I am going to be really disappointed come draft day when Julio is selected in the top 10

    2 Liuget, 2 Liuget 2 quit.

    (and unfortunately apparently everyone has been pronouncing it wrong, according to Corey on NFL Network, it is Leee git )

    He is certainly somebody we should covet very strongly. I would feel much more comfortable if we drafted him in the 20's. Imagine him being added to our already beastly d line? Our only problem there is age.
