  • *Final* AR Complete Round 1 Mock

    This is my story, and I'm sticking to it!

    1. Houston Texans: Reggie Bush, RB, USC
    Don't be fooled by reports of negotiations with Mario Williams. He's just a pawn to get Bush's price down a bit. Bush is the "can't not take this guy" prospect in this draft.

    2. New Orleans: Mario Williams, DE, NC State

    Saints will get a guy who will be an impact rookie, and will a Pro Bowl selection within a few years. OTs in the NFC South will hate this pick.

    3. Tennessee Titans: Vince Young, QB, Texas
    For months, everyone has tried to find a reason to downgrade Young. The bottom line is, he's an exceptional performer on the football field, which is all that really should matter.

    4. New York Jets: Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
    D'Brickashaw Ferguson would be the safer and, perhaps, the more logical choice, but the Jets are still a Broadway team, and Davis will make a lot more highlight film plays.

    5. Green Bay Packers: A.J. Hawk, OLB, OhioState
    With Williams gone, they will select the top remaining defensive player in the draft. Will be an instant impact player for the Packers.

    6. San Francisco Niners: Michael Huff, DB, Texas
    Niners will be a bit thrown by the selection of Davis at number 4, as he was likely their target. Huff will be touted as the next Ronnie Lott, though he's a different type of player.

    7. Oakland Raiders: Matt Leinart, QB, USC
    Leinart would have been the first pick in 2005, but he'll drop to number 7 in this draft. No problem – with his Hollywood image, he'll make up the money in endorsement contracts.

    8. Buffalo Bills: D'Brickashaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
    Bills are surprised by Ferguson's fall, and will eagerly snatch him up. He'll start as a rookie, obviously.

    9. Detroit Lions: Antonio Cromartie, DB, FSU
    There always seem to be surprises coming out of Detroit, and this year is no exception. Cromartie's stock has been shooting up in recent weeks following his workout.

    10. Arizona Cardinals: Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
    Many teams (not the Rams, though) will try to trade up for Cutler but, in the end, he'll head to the Southwest to be Kurt Warner's short-term understudy.

    11. St. Louis Rams: Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
    Pickett, Lewis, Kennedy… will four times be the charm? Ram fans hope so, and Ngata is certainly a good prospect. Maybe the best prospect of the bunch.

    12. Cleveland Browns: Brodrick Bunkley, DT, FSU
    Fast rising Bunkley will be a welcome addition in Cleveland. They would have been happy with Ngata too.

    13. Baltimore Ravens: Winston Justice, OT, USC
    Will be a good RT initially, and will be the heir apparent to Jonathan Ogden, who is now 32. A good value pick.

    14. Philadelphia Eagles: Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
    While Eagles didn't miss TO's BS, they missed his playmaking abilities. Jackson is a great prospect.

    15. Denver Broncos: Santonio Holmes, WR, OhioState
    The Broncos are trying to acquire Javon Walker, which could impact this selection. If they don't land him, though, Holmes is the guy.

    16. Miami Dolphins: Tye Hill, CB, Clemson
    Dolphins need more cover corners, and Hill is one of the top two or three in this draft. Nick Saban won't be discouraged by his size.

    17. Minnesota Vikings: Donte Whitner, SS, OhioState
    With Corey Chavous gone, Whitner fills a need and is a good value. He can also play corner or nickel back, as needed.

    18. Dallas Cowboys: Jimmy Williams, CB, VaTech
    It will take a state the size of Texas to accomodate the egos of Williams and teammate TO.

    19. San Diego Chargers: Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa
    Donnie Edwards likely won't be back, and Greenway, a similar "tackling machine" type, will be a good fit as an ILB in a 3-4 scheme.

    20. Kansas City Chiefs: DeMeco Ryans, OLB, Alabama
    After years of ignoring defense, Chiefs are building strong LB corps.

    21. New England Patriots: Manny Lawson, OLB/DE, NC State
    A tweener who will fit well in Patriots 3-4 schemes replacing Willie McGuinest.

    22. San Francisco Niners: Sinorice Moss, WR, Miami (FL)
    Alex Smith does not have enough targets. Moss isn't the player that Santana Moss is, but he has some upside potential.

    23. TampaBay Buccaneers: Nick Mangold, C, OhioState
    Not an exciting pick, but a solid one. Will open up holes for Cadillac Williams for the next few years.

    24. Cincinnati Bengals: Mathias Kiwinuka, DE, BostonCollege
    The Bengals add another pass rusher to the mix on a defense that needs some improvement.

    25. New York Giants: DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis
    Tiki Barber can't remain a top back forever, and Williams will be a great understudy/eventual starter, much as Larry Johnson was in Kansas City.

    26. Chicago Bears: Leonard Pope, TE, Georgia
    Bears' need a TE and will jump at Pope. Pope, at 6'7, barely needs to jump.

    27. Carolina Panthers: Lendale White, RB, USC
    Injury problems at RB will make this an easy choice, and a very good one.

    28. Jacksonville Jaguars: Laurence Maroney, RB, Minnesota
    Jaguars need a young playmaker in the backfield.

    29. New York Jets: Tamba Hali, DE, PennState
    Jonathan Abraham's departure leaves a hole. Hali will fill it nicely.

    30. Indianapolis Colts: Ernie Sims, LB, FSU
    A good fit in a Dungy-style defense. RB will have to wait.

    31. Seattle Seahawks: Jonathan Joseph, CB, South Carolina
    Hawks need to add talent to their DB corps. Joseph has very good size/speed combination.

    32. Pittsburgh Steelers: Bobby Carpenter, OLB/DE, Ohio State
    Will be a good fit in the Champs' defensive scheme.

    St. Louis will be filled with all sorts of b-(female dog)-ing and moaning if another DT is selected. Ngata or Bunkley either one can contribute here, but that won't stop the masses from singing a chorus of "NOT ANOTHER 1ST ROUND DT!!!"

      Why?? This is 2006... No sense crying over spilled milk.. If we can come away with Ngata or Bunkley (I prefer Ngata) we will likely forget about D-Lew and Pickett.

        Beats me as to why. But I'll bet the farm there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth from a lot of fans if we take a DT in the first.

          Well.... Bring on the gnashing and weeping! I hope we get Ngata or Bunkley

            I'd be fine with it. Both of them could turn out solid in this league.

              AR Mock Draft (3/22/06 Update)
              by AvengerRam_old
              With some more free agent signings and a big trade, its time for an update:

              1. Houston Texans: Reggie Bush, RB, USC
              While there will be talk about a trade, and concerns about Bush's ability to play on every down, in the end the Texans won't want to be the team that passes on a guy with Bush's talent.

              2. New Orleans: Mario Williams, DE, NC State

              Green Bay will push to trade up here, but the Saints will stick with the pick and take Williams to replace departed DE Darren Howard.

              3. Tennessee Titans: Vince Young, QB, Texas
              After losing steam following Wonderlikgate, Young will impress in workouts and will be the choice to replace aging Steve McNair.

              4. New York Jets: D'Brickshaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
              The Jets need to build from the ground up. LT is a good place to start.

              5. Green Bay Packers: A.J. Hawk, OLB, Ohio State
              With Williams gone, they will select the top remaining defensive player in the draft. Will be an instant impact player for the Packers.

              6. San Francisco Niners: Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
              Alex Smith needs more targets, and Davis is the top receiver in the draft, despite playing the TE position.

              7. Oakland Raiders: Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
              Al Davis may take a shot with Aaron Brooks, but he'll want a contingency plan. Cutler too good to pass up.

              8. Buffalo Bills: Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
              After failing to land Ryan Pickett, the Bills will add Ngata to bolster run defense.

              9. Detroit Lions: Michael Huff, S, Texas
              Huff will start from day 1 at FS and could be one of the top defensive rookies in 2006.

              10. Arizona Cardinals: Matt Leinert, QB, USC
              Leinert's free-fall ends in an unlikely spot. Kurt Warner asks "why me" as yet another franchise QB is drafted to sit in his shadow.

              11. St. Louis Rams: Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa
              Ram add this tackling machine to their improving LB corps. Will start on the strong side with Witherspoon (MLB) and Pisa Tinoisamoa (OLB).

              12. Cleveland Browns: Brodrick Bunkley, DT, FSU
              Fast rising Bunkley will be a welcome addition in Cleveland.

              13. Baltimore Ravens: Antonio Cromartie, CB, FSU
              Another Seminole who has improved his draft status with impressive workouts.

              14. Philadelphia Eagles: Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
              While Eagles didn't miss TO's BS, they missed his playmaking abilities. Jackson is a great prospect.

              15. Denver Broncos: Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State
              Broncos need help at DE. Hali's workouts don't tell the story. He's a player.

              16. Miami Dolphins: Winston Justice, OT, USC
              Having signed Will Allen, Dolphins can turn to the offensive line and select a player who can protect Duante Culpepper.

              17. Minnesota Vikings: Tye Hill, CB, Clemson
              A good value as DBs fall to the middle...

              AR's Complete First Round Mock (3/2/06 Version)
              by AvengerRam_old
              Okay, here's my first mock of the season:

              1. Houston Texans: Reggie Bush, RB, USC
              While there will be talk about a trade, and concerns about Bush's ability to play on every down, in the end the Texans won't want to be the team that passes on a guy with Bush's talent.

              2. New Orleans: Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
              First surprise will come early. Matt Leinart will raise concerns in Pro Day workout by demonstrating marginal arm strength, vaulting Cutler to the top of the draft.

              3. Tennessee Titans: Vince Young, QB, Texas
              After losing steam following Wonderlikgate, Young will impress in workouts and will be the choice to replace aging Steve McNair.

              4. New York Jets: D'Brickshaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
              Jets will be scared off by Leinart's workout as well, and will instead go with a near sure-thing prospect to anchor their O line.

              5. Green Bay Packers: Mario Williams, DE, NC State
              Perfect match of a great talent and a team that needs a pass rusher. They won't need ten minutes to make this choice.

              6. San Francisco Niners: Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland
              As Ram fans moan, the Niners will get Alex Smith a big, fast, target. But, like the Rams, they probably would be better off with a defensive player.

              7. Oakland Raiders: Matt Leinart, QB, USC
              Al Davis won't be able to pass up the California Golden Boy. With Kerry Collins on the outs, Leinart could be a starter as a rookie.

              8. Buffalo Bills: Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
              Bills need a defensive anchor, and there's only one Blue Chip DT in this year's draft.

              9. Detroit Lions: A.J. Hawk, OLB, OhioState
              Though some will hope they take a QB, they go for the best player left on the board.

              10. Arizona Cardinals: DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis
              Cardinals need O line help, but that will have to wait. Williams an instant starter.

              11. St. Louis Rams: Michael Huff, S, Texas
              A virtual no-brainer at this point. Huff is exactly what the Rams' defense needs.

              12. Cleveland Browns: Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa
              A nice addition to the Browns' defense.

              13. Baltimore Ravens: Omar Jacobs, QB, Bowling Green
              The addition of the fast-rising Jacobs will mark the beginning of the end for Kyle Boller.

              14. Philadelphia Eagles: ChadJackson, WR, Florida
              While Eagles didn't miss TO's BS, they missed his playmaking abilities. Jackson is a great prospect.

              15. Atlanta Falcons: Broderick Bunkley, DT, FSU
              Falcons need help in run defense. Bunkley should contribute early.

              16. Miami Dolphins: Jimmy Williams, CB, VaTech
              With the departure of Sam Madison, Miami needs DB help. They will be shocked and thrilled to see Williams here.

              17. Minnesota Vikings: Tye Hill, CB, Clemson
              Another good value as DBs fall to the middle of the first...

              AR's UPDATED Complete First Round Mock (3/14/06 Version)
              by AvengerRam_old
              With some big signings and trades, I thought it was time for an update. This may be outdated again in a week, but here's my current projection:

              1. Houston Texans: Reggie Bush, RB, USC
              While there will be talk about a trade, and concerns about Bush's ability to play on every down, in the end the Texans won't want to be the team that passes on a guy with Bush's talent.


              2. New Orleans: Mario Williams, DE, NC State
              Green Bay will push to trade up here, but the Saints will stick with the pick and take Williams to replace departed DE Darren Howard.

              3. Tennessee Titans: Vince Young, QB, Texas
              After losing steam following Wonderlikgate, Young will impress in workouts and will be the choice to replace aging Steve McNair.

              4. New York Jets: Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
              I still see Cutler being selected above Matt Leinert, and the Jets will be glad to get him.

              5. Green Bay Packers: A.J. Hawk, OLB, Ohio State
              With Williams gone, they will select the top remaining defensive player in the draft. Will be an instant impact player for the Packers.

              6. San Francisco Niners: D'Brickshaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
              They will be tempted to go with monster TE Vernon Davis, but Alex Smith won't mind having Ferguson watching his back.

              7. Oakland Raiders: Matt Leinart, QB, USC
              Al Davis won't be able to pass up the California Golden Boy. With Kerry Collins gone, Leinart could be a starter as a rookie.

              8. Buffalo Bills: Vernon Davis, TE, Georgia
              J.P. Losman could use a big, fast target over the middle to help with his development. Davis is a great fit.

              9. Detroit Lions: Michael Huff, S, Texas
              Huff will start from day 1 at FS and could be one of the top defensive rookies in 2006.

              10. Arizona Cardinals: Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State
              Cardinals need a pass rusher. Hali a bit of a reach here, but he should compete for a starting job as a rookie.

              11. St. Louis Rams: Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa
              Ram add this tackling machine to their improving LB corps. Will start on the strong side with Witherspoon (MLB) and Pisa Tinoisamoa (OLB).

              12. Cleveland Browns: Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
              Browns will be thrilled to see the massive Ngata here at this point. Will be a great fit as the NT.

              13. Baltimore Ravens: Omar Jacobs, QB, Bowling Green
              The addition of the fast-rising Jacobs will mark the beginning of the end for Kyle Boller.

              14. Philadelphia Eagles: Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
              While Eagles didn't miss TO's BS, they missed his playmaking abilities. Jackson is a great prospect.

              15. Atlanta Falcons: Broderick Bunkley, DT, FSU
              Falcons need help in run defense. Bunkley should contribute early.

              16. Miami Dolphins: Jimmy Williams, CB, VaTech
              With the departure of Sam Madison, Miami needs DB help. They...
