    NickSeiler's Pre-Super Bowl Mock Draft v3.0


    1. Houston: Reggie Bush, RB, USC
    -As the draft draws closer and closer, this pick makes too much sense. The Texans seem to feel comfortable with David Carr at QB, and despite pressure to take hometown-hero Vince Young first overall, Reggie Bush is the kind of electrifying player that will fill the seats in Houston.

    2. New Orleans: Matt Leinart, QB, USC
    -Sean Payton, the new Saints head coach, served as the primary mentor for quarterbacks in Dallas. What better person for him to bring in than the top passer in this draft class? Leinart will be the future of the New Orleans offense, and give the Saints the star signal caller they've been missing.

    3. Tennessee: Vince Young, QB, Texas
    -The relationship between Vince Young and Steve McNair is a strong factor in this selection. There are rumblings that Norm Chow has fallen in love with Jay Cutler, but there's no way the Titans take Cutler over Young, who capped off a championship season with an outstanding performance in the Rose Bowl.

    4. NY Jets: D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
    -The Jets may feel comfortable with Adrian Jones at LT, but D'Brickashaw Ferguson would be a serious upgrade at that position, and would protect New York's quarterback for years to come. Jones could either slide over to RT or find another spot on a disappointing line.

    5. Green Bay: A.J. Hawk, OLB, Ohio State
    -Hawk seems like a match made in heaven for the Green Bay defense. Besides Nick Barnett, you'd be hard pressed to name another linebacker on the Packers' squad that's proved themselves worthy of a starting spot. Hawk is the kind of player who could come in and make an immediate impact.

    6. Oakland: Mario Williams, DE, NC State
    -Oakland has a variety of needs on defense that need to be addressed if this talented team is going to get anywhere. "Super" Mario will not only help the Raiders establish a better pass rush, but also help fix that 25th ranked rush defense.

    7. San Fransisco: DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis
    -Word is Mike Nolan has been raving about DeAngelo Williams during the Senior Bowl practices. This is eerily similar to Jon Gruden's praise of Carnell Williams during the same event last year. Is that enough to warrant this pick? Maybe not, but the ***** do need help in the running game.

    8. Buffalo: Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
    -Since losing Pat Williams to Minnesota, the Buffalo Bills have had some problems on defense. They went from the 7th ranked rush defense to 31st in 2005. Grabbing a big bodied player like Ngata early in the first round should do wonders for that defensive line.

    9. Detroit: Winston Justice, OT, USC
    -One of the biggest problems in Detroit has been trying to find a replacement for Stockar McDougle at the right tackle position. Even left tackle Jeff Backus could use a little competition to boost his play as well. Winston Justice is the second ranked OT in this class, and is a big upgrade for Detroit.

    10. Arizona: LenDale White, RB, USC
    -I'm skeptical of the Cardinals taking a running back so early after selecting J.J. Arrington in last year's draft. The Cardinals really need some help on the offensive line. However, Arrington didn't create much of anything, and by taking White here, the Cardinals would have a dangerous 1-2 punch at RB.

    11. St. Louis: Michael Huff, DB, Texas
    -The Rams could pretty much select any defensive player at this point and be praised for making improvements on their team. However, defensive back Michael Huff is the best available defensive player, and could play at safety or cornerback for the Rams, both being positions where improvement is necessary.

    12. Cleveland: Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa
    -Greenway has the size, speed, and physical attributes to play multiple linebacker positions. But his pass rushing abilities make him a great fit as a rush linebacker in Romeo Crennel's 3-4 system, and will make him an excellent defensive addition to an up and coming Browns team.

    13. Baltimore: Jimmy Williams, DB, VA Tech
    -Williams has dropped a bit from a potential Top 6 prospect during the season to a Top 15-20 prospect. He did not have an oustanding year and may be a bit of a 'tweener. But I guarantee that the Ravens will find somewhere to use him, be it at corner or at safety where they need a playmaker beside Ed Reed.

    14. Philadelphia: Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State
    -The Eagles have a lot of issues to address after a disappointing 2005 season. One of their biggest problems was creating pressure on the quarterback. The Eagles ranked 26th in the league in sacks, and the addition of Hali would add an explosive force to their defensive line.

    15. Atlanta: Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College
    -Kiwanuka is blessed with great size and good quickness off the line. The Falcons have been aging at the defensive end position. Drafting Kiwanuka would be a great move to preserve the future of their defensive pass rush; Mathias can play a limited role under he's ready to take over full time.

    16. Miami: Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
    -The hype for Jay Cutler in these last few weeks/months has been amazing. I don't think he's done enough to jump into the top ten, but word has it the Dolphins love him, and considering their current QB situation, they'd love to get a talented QB project here in the mid first round.

    17. Minnesota: Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
    -It was only a matter of time before a top-10 talent like Vernon Davis went off the board. The guy is a freak of nature, and while the Vikings may have bigger needs than tight end, they're aging at that position and could really add another dynamic weapon to their offense by grabbing Davis here.

    18. Dallas: Santonio Holmes, WR, Ohio State
    -The Cowboys may want to strengthen their offensive line or secondary here, but Santonio Holmes remains the top of the class in terms of receivers in 2006, and the Cowboys need help in that part of the offense. Besides, how much longer can they really count on Keyshawn Johnson and Terry Glenn?

    19. San Diego: Jon Scott, OT, Texas
    -Jon Scott may not be the type of prospect he was once considered, but I believe he's a solid first round offensive tackle with great size and intelligence. He's sometimes inconsistent, but that won't matter for San Diego, because he won't be asked to contribute immediately.

    20. Kansas City: Tye Hill, CB, Clemson
    -The Chiefs have a number of needs, and would have selected Holmes had he fallen to them here. But the rising stock of Tye Hill and the aging of the Chiefs' group of cornerbacks means that Kansas City will jump on the best pure cornerback in this year's draft and continue to try and improve their defense.

    21. New England: DeMeco Ryans, LB, Alabama
    -One of the biggest question marks coming into 2005 for the Patriots was linebacker. Ted Johnson unexpectedly retired and Tedy Bruschi suffered a minor stroke. While DeMeco Ryans may not have the prototypical size of an inside linebacker, he has the football smarts that the Patriots covet.

    22. Denver (f/WAS): Ko Simpson, S, North Carolina
    -For as disappointing as Jake Plummer was this post-season, the Broncos would like to upgrade on the defensive side of the ball. That starts at the safety position. Though Lynch and Ferguson have played well, neither are spring chickens, and Ko Simpson is easily the best safety on the board.

    23. Tampa Bay: Eric Winston, OT, Miami
    -If the Buccaneers want to continue to have a great running game on the back of Carnell "Cadillac" Williams, they need to strengthen their offensive line. Winston was once considered a top prospect in this class, but even though he's dropped a bit, I think he's still a solid first round left tackle.

    24. Cincinnati: Marcedes Lewis, TE, UCLA
    -Look at the Bengals' offense and tell me what's missing. QB? Palmer is the man. RB? The Johnson/Perry combo is very productive. WR? Chad Johnson is one of the best in the league. The only thing this offense is missing is a TE, and the Bengals will get one of this year's best in Lewis.

    25. NY Giants: Bobby Carpenter, LB, Ohio State
    -Are Carlos Emmons and Barrett Green really the answer at OLB for the Giants? Hardly. New York added a quality playmaker when they brought in Antonio Pierce, and they'd be wise to add another athletic young linebacker in Carpenter, who has more than ideal size and speed.

    26. Chicago: Leonard Pope, TE, Georgia
    -The Bears had a great run this season, and are really starting to put the puzzle pieces together on both sides of the ball. But Desmond Clark's production has dropped since he first came to Chicago, and Pope is a huge player who will impact both the passing game as a receiver and the running game as a blocker.

    27. Carolina: Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota
    -Carolina has bigger needs than running back, but after falling in the playoffs while starting the 4th RB on their depth chart, you have to wonder how good their depth is there. They finished the season with three 'backs on IR, and Maroney is the best player available.

    28. Jacksonville: Antonio Cromartie, CB, Florida State
    -There's no question that Cromartie's a top corner prospect if he can prove he's healthy. Jacksonville has a great young corner in Mathis and Kenny Wright has played well, but there's little depth behind them, and Wright will be 29 this fall. Cromartie should factor into nickel packages immediately.

    29. Denver: Brodrick Bunkley, DT, Florida State
    -The Broncos are entering some serious cap problems in 2006, and will probably have to part ways with a number of the defensive linemen they brought in this season. Bunkley has come on strong as of late and looks to be one of the top line prospects available. He'd be a nice fit in Denver.

    30. Indianapolis: Thomas Howard, OLB, UTEP
    -Tony Dungy's Tampa 2 defensive scheme relies on fast athletic linebackers that can make plays sideline-to-sideline. Perhaps no linebacker in this class fills that description better than Thomas Howard, who combines great size with outstanding speed for a linebacker.

    31. Seattle: D'Qwell Jackson, LB, Maryland
    -The Seahawks have gotten by with a large rotation at linebacker, but they could use a stable force on their defense beside Lofa Tatupu. Jackson projects as an OLB in the pros, and would give the Seahawks yet another playmaker on the defensive side of the ball.

    32. Pittsburgh: Manny Lawson, OLB, NC State
    -There's a strong chance that, come April, Lawson could be going as high as 12th overall to Cleveland after a monumental rise ala Demarcus Ware or Shawne Merriman. But right now, I think he's a borderline first round talent that fits very well as a 3-4 OLB, and would be a nice new addition to an already devastating defense.


    33. Houston: Daryn Colledge, OT, Boise State
    -After passing on D'Brickashaw in the first round, the Texans need to address their O-line.

    34. New Orleans: Ernie Sims, LB, Florida State
    -The Saints went offense with Leinart, but now have to address defense, specifically LB.

    35. Tennessee: Marcus McNeill, OT, Auburn
    -Drafting McNeill would give the Titans a very good RT and allow Roos to shift to the left side.

    36. NY Jets: Claude Wroten, DT, LSU
    -Wroten would be an excellent addition to the Jets' D-line and a nice fit beside Dewayne Robertson.

    37. Green Bay: Max Jean-Gilles, G, Georgia
    -After losing veteran talent on the O-line last spring, the Packers would be wise to add some.

    38. Oakland: Gabe Watson, DT, Michigan
    -The Raiders can't pass up on another young stud for their aging defensive line.

    39. San Fransisco: Ashton Youboty, CB, Ohio State
    -Youboty, a potential first round pick, is great value for the ***** here considering their DB needs.

    40. Buffalo: Ryan O'Callaghan, OT, California
    -Acquiring Ngata in round one and O'Callaghan in round two should bring about improvement on both Bills' lines.

    41. Detroit: Darnell Bing, S, USC
    -Darnell Bing and team-leading tackler Kenoy Kennedy will make for a nice combo at safety.

    42. Arizona: Omar Jacobs, QB, Bowling Green
    -If the Cardinals don't make a deal for Daunte, then Omar Jacobs could very easily be Arizona's future.

    43. St. Louis: Abdul Hodge, LB, Iowa
    -Having gone DB in round one, the Rams continue to address their defense by taking an impressive young MLB.

    44. Cleveland: Joseph Addai, RB, LSU
    -Reuben Droughns was a stud in 2005, but a change of pace back would be a nice addition in Cleveland.

    45. Baltimore: Orien Harris, DT, Miami
    -A potential first round pick, Harris should help improve a declining defense.

    46. Philadelphia: Derek Hagan, WR, Arizona State
    -With T.O. out the door, the Eagles add Hagan to give their passing game more weapons.

    47. Atlanta: Maurice Drew, RB, UCLA
    -Warrick Dunn has a huge cap figure for 2006. Adding Drew would allow the Falcons to part ways with Dunn.

    48. Miami: Richard Marshall, CB, Fresno State
    -The talent of Richard Marshall should help improve a sub-par Miami pass defense.

    49. Minnesota: A.J. Nicholson, LB, Florida State
    -Nicholson has had his problems, but there's no denying that he can be a playmaker for the Vikings D.

    50. Dallas: Jason Allen, S, Tennessee
    -A former cornerback, Allen would give the Cowboys a nice compliment to the hard hitting Roy Williams.

    51. San Diego: Kai Parham, ILB, Virginia
    -The Chargers need youth at ILB. Imagine a group with both Shawne Merriman and Kai Parham. Scary.

    52. Kansas City: Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
    -After missing Santonio Holmes in the first round, the Chiefs are able to add Jackson in the second.

    53. New England: Cedric Griffin, CB, Texas
    -Cedric Griffin could play either corner or safety, and has the aggressive style the Patriots like.

    54. Washington: Kamerion Wimbley, DE, Florida State
    -The Redskins need to add a young dynamic pass rusher to their defensive line. Wimbley is just that.

    55. Tampa Bay: Kelly Jennings, CB, Miami
    -Cornerbacks Ronde Barber and Brian Kelly are both 30, and there's not much depth behind them.

    56. Cincinnati: Rodrique Wright, DT, Texas
    -If Marvin Lewis can get Wright to play to his potential, this will be looked at as a huge steal.

    57. NY Giants: Sinorice Moss, WR, Miami
    -The Giants would like to get Eli Manning more offensive weapons. Moss' stock has been on the rise.

    58. Chicago: Davin Joseph, OL, Oklahoma
    -Joseph won't have to play right away, but can be groomed as Ruben Brown's replacement on the O-line.

    59. Carolina: Anthony Fasano, TE, Notre Dame
    -The Panthers add perhaps this class' most complete tight end in order to help both the running and passing games.

    60. Jacksonville: Joe Klopfenstein, TE, Colorado
    -Leftwich needs another target to throw to, and Klopfenstein can get downfield when needed.

    61. Denver: Ray Edwards, DE, Purdue
    -Edwards has great size and could really be a steal here if he has a good combine.

    62. Indianapolis: Greg Eslinger, C, Minnesota
    -Once thought of as a strength, the Colts' O-line showed in the playoffs that they could use some help.

    63. Seattle: Jesse Mahelona, DT, Tennessee
    -If Rocky Bernard leaves for free agency, then Mahelona will have a bigger role in the D-line rotation.

    64. Pittsburgh: Martin Nance, WR, Miami (OH)
    -By taking Nance, the Steelers will reunite Big Ben with one of his college targets.


    65. Houston: Nick Mangold, C, Ohio State
    -More O-line help for Houston.

    66. Houston (f/NO): Elvis Dumervil, DE, Louisville
    -Could be a nice fit as a 3-4 OLB.

    67. Buffalo (f/TEN): Greg Blue, S, Georgia
    -Nice depth at safety for Buffalo.

    68. NY Jets: Charlie Whitehurst, QB, Clemson
    -A solid performer to back up Chad.

    69. Green Bay: Brian Calhoun, RB, Wisconsin
    -Provides solid depth for the Packers at worst.

    70. Oakland: Roger McIntosh, LB, Miami
    -Finally, the Raiders add a linebacker!

    71. San Fransisco: Andrew Whitworth, OT, LSU
    -Is the Kwame Harris era in San Fran over?

    72. Buffalo: Maurice Stovall, WR, Notre Dame
    -Eric Moulds may be out the door; Stovall is on the rise.

    73. Detroit: Brodie Croyle, QB, Alabama
    -Croyle has the arm and the smarts to do something where Joey hasn't.

    74. Arizona: Jonathan Lewis, DT, Virginia Tech
    -A reliable talent to play beside Darnell Dockett.

    75. St. Louis: Dominique Byrd, TE, USC
    -Should compete with starter Manumaleuna right away.

    76. Cleveland: Babatunde Oshinowo, DT, Stanford
    -A great nose tackle prospect for Crennel's 3-4.

    77. New England (f/BAL): Pat Watkins, S, Florida State
    -Great prospect in case Harrison has trouble returning.

    78. Philadelphia: Jeremy Trueblood, OT, Boston College
    -Could compete for Jon Runyan's job, should he leave.

    79. Atlanta: Bernard Pollard, S, Purdue
    -Nice addition next to Bryan Scott.

    80. Miami: Jason Spitz, OL, Louisville
    -Like it or not, the Dolphins need O-line help.

    81. Minnesota: DeMario Minter, CB, Georgia
    -Fred Smoot was disappointing; Minter has all the skills.

    82. Dallas: Charles Spencer, OG, Pittsburgh
    -Could be groomed as Larry Allen's replacement.

    83. San Diego: Daniel Bullocks, S, Nebraska
    -Should have no problem getting time in that secondary.

    84. Kansas City: Daryl Tapp, DE, Virginia Tech
    -Tapp is very good value late in the third.

    85. New England: Demetrius Williams, WR, Oregon
    -Insurance, in case the Pats can't resign both Branch and Givens.

    86. Washington: Hank Baskett, WR, New Mexico
    -Poor depth at WR makes Baskett a great selection.

    87. Tampa Bay: Spencer Havner, LB, UCLA
    -Derrick Brooks can't play forever.

    88. Cincinnati: Roman Harper, S, Alabama
    -The combo of Madieu Williams and Roman Harper should be impressive.

    89. NY Giants: Kyle Williams, DT, LSU
    -Giants need more depth on that defensive line.

    90. Chicago: Anwar Phillips, CB, Penn State
    -Could compete for NCB spot if Azumah leaves Chicago.

    91. Carolina: Anthony Smith, S, Syracuse
    -The addition of Smith can move Minter back to SS.

    92. Jacksonville: Ryan Cook, C, New Mexico
    -Center Brad Meester has been disappointing this season.

    93. Denver: Mike Hass, WR, Oregon State
    -Think Ed McCaffrey v2.0.

    94. Indianapolis: DonTrell Moore, RB, New Mexico
    -Colts may look for RB sooner if Edge doesn't resign.

    95. Seattle: Mark Anderson, DE, Alabama
    -'Hawks could use some additional depth at the end position.

    96. Pittsburgh: Mike Degory, C, Florida
    -Jeff Hartings isn't getting any younger.

    Great draft for the rams. looking at the first round, if the cardinals or rams don't select vernon davis, then hes in for quite a slide. btw nick, wheres sinorice moss? i'm sure hes good enough to warrant a 2nd round pick.

    I could have sworn I had him in there somewhere. I'll go back and edit tomorrow or Saturday, probably with him going to KC or the Giants.

    Wow, I'm a little surprised that you have Byrd falling to the 3rd round and Mark Anderson going in the third round. I believe that we will see Byrd plucked off late in the second, with Mark Anderson being a late 4th rounder. Besides that, it was a great Mock Draft. Very impressive.

    I appreciate your opinions. I'll try to respond with why I projected the moves I did so even if you disagree you can better understand them.

    Byrd's stock has risen, but I don't think he's passed Fasano or Klopfenstein on the TE board, so it's really just a matter of teams filling other needs with other good players. I wouldn't be surprised to see Byrd go in the second round, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him available in the third either due to lack of ideal measurables.

    As for Anderson, I think he had a strong showing at the Senior Bowl against D'Brickashaw and could go anywhere from late third to fourth round. I have him at 95th overall, which is the second to last pick in the third round. I don't think that's too much of a stretch. He was the best DE still available on my board when making the draft, and I think showed last week that he can be a solid 4-3 DE option.

    Re: NickSeiler's Pre-Super Bowl Mock Draft v3.0

    Well I didnt necessarily disagree with them, as much as I was just surprised by them. I'm excited to see that Anderson has gotten some respect here lately. He made a great play on that reverse early in the Senior Bowl where he tackled the RB for a loss.

    With Byrd, I still really expect too see him gone in the 2nd round. He put up some good production at USC and I get the feeling that he will be impressive at the Combine.

    As always, I respect your opinion and thank you for the time and effort that you put into your work.

    Nick maybe this is just me, but I think that Houston and NYJ will trade. I don't think that they need another runningback, but they do need a LT.

    Re: NickSeiler's Pre-Super Bowl Mock Draft v3.0

    you really did your homework nick...nice...

    i like the m. huff pick...i think he'll be the playmaker our defense has lacked in the secondary for a while now...

    a. hodge is a good player at mlb, but i'd rather we go for Daryll Tapp DE from V-tech...he may not have 4.5 speed but he has great pass rush ability that will make our secondary look much better...

    j. cutler may go higher than that...i can see the dolphins trading up to secure him...even arizona may covet the guy...

    That certainly could happen. I didn't project potential trades into the mock.

    Having Demeco end up in New England is a scary thought. I wouldnt be able to root for him.
