  • one more first round mock draft

    Had to squeeze this in before Thursday. Some of the picks may be head scratchers, but hey, what's the fun in just re-writing an existing one??


    01) Rams -- Sam Bradford
    02) Lions -- Ndomukung Suh
    03) Bucs -- Gerald McCoy
    04) Redskins -- Trent Williams (looks to be a better zone blocker)
    05) Chiefs -- Russell Okung
    06) Seahawks -- C.J. Spiller (they might feel they have a better chance of landing an OT with their second pick, than with Spiller falling to said pick)
    07) Browns -- Eric Berry
    08) Raiders -- Bruce Campbell (workout warrior, Raider written all over him)
    09) Bills -- Brian Bulaga
    10) Jaguars -- Derrick Morgan
    11) Broncos -- Dez Bryant (with Marshall gone, they need someone to step up)
    12) Dolphins -- Dan Williams
    13) ***** -- Joe Haden
    14) Seahawks -- Anthony Davis
    15) Giants -- Rolando McClain
    16) Titans -- Jason Pierre Paul
    17) ***** -- Jimmy Clausen
    18) Steelers -- Maurkice Pouncey
    19) Falcons -- Brandon Graham
    20) Texans -- Kyle Wilson (physical corner that they need right now)
    21) Bengals -- Earl Thomas
    22) Patriots -- Jermaine Greshem
    23) Packers -- Sergio Kindle
    24) Eagles -- Kareem Jackson (physical corner who can tackle)
    25) Ravens -- Jared Odrick
    26) Cardinals -- Sean Weatherspoon (next best non-pass rush LB available)
    27) Cowboys -- Mike Iupati (big, tough lineman that Jones likes)
    28) Chargers -- Ryan Mathews
    29) Jets -- Jerry Hughes (Jets are looking to draft in the front 7 on Defense)
    30) Vikings -- Devin McCourty
    31) Colts -- Charles Brown (has been rising up draft boards as of late, and could make a push)
    32) Saints -- Daryl Washington (need to replace departures at position)

    Well if your mock comes true!
    Rams take DT Brian Price in the 2nd round.
    I don't think he will be there.

      Re: one more first round mock draft

      Nice mock, Beers. A couple of things:

      -Good job with the Seahawks at #6. That's the right pick IMO.

      -IMO, Okung/Bulaga/Williams/Campbell/Pouncey/Iupati/Brown. I don't see Brown being selected that high by anybody other than the *****, who really need the OL help, so I can't really argue other than to say I think Iupati and Pouncey should be selected much higher come draft day.

      -Sergio Kindle is NOT a coverage LB. He's a pass rush specialist.

      -GREAT Cardinals pick. Well done.

      -Ditto for the Chargers.

      -I don't think the Jets take a backup pass rushing LB in the first round. At this point, I think they'll give Gholston one more go and look at a five technique like Alualu.

      -Davis to the Colts is a nice fit if he falls that far. For the record, I don't think he will.

      -32 is a little high for Washington IMO, but it's still conceivable. I'd have gone with Dunlap there.

      -WHO DO THE RAMS PICK AT #33??

      Oh my. Price's value has plummeted of late. He's considered a possible third round pick by many including myself. I think I projected him higher in my last mock draft, but I've watched some film and flip-flopped.

        Thanks for the feedback! I can't believe I wrote in Kindle as a coverage LB. I guess I was thinking of something/someone else...I'm not sure what :o

        As far as Charles Brown, I admit I have him a bit high. I could probably theoretically switch he and Anthony Davis around. Perhaps I may do such a thing.

        As far as Hughes to the Jets...their team is just so solid. They addressed some needs even with their top-8(?) handicap. It's tough to project a team with no glaring needs.

        I'll probably make a few last minute changes coming up soon!

            Nice work! I could see a team like the Bengals moving up to make a play for Berry. Eagles possibly too, but I'd bet they'd be stoked to have Jackson at 24 while still holding multiple seconds thirds, and fourths

              Re: one more first round mock draft

              Updates made. I just switched around the last two OTs selected, (Davis and Brown). I admit that I want to put Pouncey higher than 30, but I just can't seem to place him anywhere.

              The team that I had in mind is Pittsburgh, who could probably stand to upgrade at corner, wide receiver and offensive line with this pick. I have to think they go for the line and receiver in rounds two and three.

              I'm not sold on Kindle going to Green Bay either. He looks like a good fit, but will Green Bay really use another first round pick on a LB? We'll find out soon enough I guess!

                If Pouncey goes to the Steelers you could project Wilson to the Packers.

                Kindle is also a possibility at 21 to Cincinnati or even better, to New England at 22.

                Looks pretty good to me!

                    Nick's First Round NFL Mock and Full Rams Mock Draft (3/18)
                    by Nick
                    Mixed some things up some more, wanted to get another mock out before my schedule got really hectic later this month. Hope you guys enjoy, and as always, constructive criticism is welcome!




                    ROUND ONE

                    1. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
                    -Though I prefer Suh, I believe an impressive workout and medical check at his pro day later this month will likely make Bradford the pick.

                    2. Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
                    -Having coached Albert Haynesworth in Tennessee, head coach Jim Schwartz understands the value of a top-flight defensive tackle.

                    3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
                    -The Bucs have been trying to replace Warren Sapp for years; McCoy is a disruptive penetrator who should start from Day One.

                    4. Washington Redskins: Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
                    -The release of Chris Samuels leaves the Redskins thin on the offensive line; count me among those not yet convinced of Jimmy Clausen being a consideration here.

                    5. Kansas City Chiefs: Brian Bulaga, OT, Iowa
                    -I still think Eric Berry is a strong candidate for this pick, but Kansas City also knows they’ll have to protect Matt Cassel if they expect him to be successful.

                    6. Seattle Seahawks: Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
                    -With both of the top tackles off the board, Seattle may look to Pierre-Paul, who could play outside linebacker if Pete Carroll wants to switch to the 3-4.

                    7. Cleveland Browns: Eric Berry, DB, Tennessee
                    -Great situation for the Browns, as they need all the help they can get in their secondary. Berry could probably start anywhere for them.

                    8. Oakland Raiders: Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland
                    -I’m not completely sold on what has become a trendy pick, but Oakland’s 2009 selections of Heyward-Bey and Michael Mitchell means anything is possible here.

                    9. Buffalo Bills: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
                    -The Bills will give heavy consideration to Jimmy Clausen, but they’re in desperate need for an offensive tackle as well.

                    10. Jacksonville Jaguars: Joe Haden, CB, Florida
                    -Haden may have recovered from a slow combine forty by running well at his pro day; if he slips by Cleveland, the Jags will reap the benefits.

                    11. Denver Broncos (f/CHI): Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
                    -There is talk that character concerns could push Bryant down draft boards, but if Brandon Marshall is dealt prior to the draft, it’s hard to see Bryant getting by Denver.

                    12. Miami Dolphins: Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee
                    -The Dolphins not only need a nose tackle of the future, but with Jason Ferguson’s suspension, they need one for the present.

                    13. San Francisco *****: Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas
                    -Kindle’s ability as a potential...

                    Nick's Pre-Senior Bowl 2010 First Round Mock Draft
                    by Nick
                    Now that all of the underclassmen have declared, I thought it was time to update my mock draft! My first mock of the year came sometime before Christmas, and I’m hoping to have a new one out sometime after the Senior Bowl. Hope this tides you over for a little while!




                    1. St. Louis Rams: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
                    -Not much has changed from my first mock of the offseason. If the Rams think either Clausen or Bradford can be elite quarterbacks, they may be tempted to take one. But I still think when it comes to this pick, Suh makes the most sense for the Rams. He’s considered the best prospect in this class and one of the best to come around in a long time. The Rams could certainly use his help in the trenches.

                    2. Detroit Lions: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
                    -Though they may prefer Suh, Oklahoma’s Gerald McCoy is a fine consolation prize for the Lions, who seem to have a number of offensive weapons but now need to work on the defensive side of the ball. Head coach Jim Schwartz came from a Tennessee Titans defense that featured Albert Haynesworth, so he knows the value of a talented, disruptive lineman.

                    3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Eric Berry, DB, Tennessee
                    -Don’t be surprised if Tampa Bay tries to move up to secure either Suh or McCoy, because this team is desperate for defensive line help. I would be too if my team was starting Chris Hovan and Ryan Sims. But if the Bucs are forced to pick here and both tackles are off the board, Tennessee’s Eric Berry would be the obvious choice to help upgrade their defensive secondary.

                    4. Washington Redskins: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
                    -Not Clausen, you say? Consider this – the doctor who performed Sam Bradford’s shoulder surgery works for the Washington Redskins, which should give them an inside edge regarding Bradford’s recovery and outlook. Bradford was the frontrunner to be selected first overall before his injury, and if he gets Dr. Andrews’ seal of approval, could be the Redskin’ pick here.

                    5. Kansas City Chiefs: Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
                    -The Kansas City Chiefs drafted Virginia’s Branden Albert to be their left tackle of the future, even though he spent most of his college career at guard. Albert has had a rough sophomore year, surrendering nine sacks while being penalized ten times. In order to better protect multimillion dollar QB Matt Cassel, look for the Chiefs to give Russell Okung a hard look in April.

                    6. Seattle Seahawks: Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
                    -New head coach Pete Carroll has given veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck a vote of confidence, but don’t think for a minute that the Seahawks are happy about the long-term standing of their quarterback situation. One of Carroll’s first priorities should be looking for a quarterback of the future, and if Jimmy Clausen...

                    Nick's "All I Want For Christmas Is A" First-Round Mock Draft
                    by Nick
                    It's my first mock of the 2010 NFL Draft season, and just in time for Christmas! I worked a bit on this yesterday and a bit on it today, and I think I'm pretty satisfied with what I came up with. I'll try to use this as a starting point for a seven-round Rams mock draft in the coming days, but I wanted to get this one up in the meantime. Enjoy!!



                    NFL 2010 MOCK DRAFT



                    1. St. Louis Rams: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
                    -With the first pick in the draft, it’s only natural to select the best player, right? The Rams could certainly use a quarterback of the future, but I’m simply not convinced that there’s a candidate worthy of this pick, especially with Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh on the board. It’s hard to imagine Suh not being an absolute force of nature in a Steve Spagnuolo defense.

                    2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
                    -While Ndamukong Suh has been getting all the attention as the draft’s best defensive lineman, Oklahoma’s Gerald McCoy is a pretty darn good prospect in his own right. McCoy practically had property in his opponents’ backfields, accumulating 14.5 tackles for loss this season. His addition would make it easier for Tampa to phase out Ryan Sims and Chris Hovan.

                    3. Cleveland Browns: Eric Berry, DB, Tennessee
                    -Head coach Eric Mangini may want to find “his guy” at quarterback, but I think Brady Quinn has shown enough promise to keep the Browns from reaching for a signal-caller here. Instead, they’ll take the best player available in Eric Berry. While safeties traditionally don’t go this high in the draft, Berry’s playmaking ability and versatility make him a good choice.

                    4. Detroit Lions: Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
                    -Last year, the Lions pulled the trigger on drafting a franchise quarterback in Matthew Stafford and a well balanced tight end in Brandon Pettigrew. They already had a top receiver in Calvin Johnson and a workhorse runner in Kevin Smith. The final piece to the offensive puzzle is a franchise left tackle, because most people realize that Jeff Backus is simply not getting the job done.

                    5. Kansas City Chiefs: Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama
                    -It might surprise some people to see McClain’s name this high in a mock draft, but there’s a school of thought that McClain could leap up draft boards with Patrick Willis-type potential. The Chiefs demonstrated last year that they were willing to make a surprise pick if the prospect fit their scheme, and McClain would be a force as an inside ‘backer in Kansas City’s 3-4.

                    6. Washington Redskins: Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
                    -Though Jason Campbell has been coming on strong the last two weeks, I believe that Washington’s pursuit of both Jay Cutler and Mark Sanchez indicates that Campbell will likely be moving on in 2010. While the future of head coach Jim Zorn remains to be seen, the Redskins will need to...

                    Nick's Two-Round NFL Mock Draft and Seven-Round Rams Mock (4/6 version)
                    by Nick
                    Started working on this one before the wedding, but didn't get it done until today. As always, feedback is appreciated!




                    ROUND ONE

                    1. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
                    -Bradford’s positive showing at his pro day combined with the release of Marc Bulger continue the momentum of him being the likely pick for the Rams.

                    2. Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
                    -Detroit traded for Seattle guard Rob Sims, which means Jeff Backus is likely staying outside at tackle. This makes the selection of Ndamukong Suh more likely.

                    3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
                    -As a quick penetrator from the three technique position, McCoy is an ideal fit for what Tampa Bay is looking for at the position.

                    4. Washington Redskins: Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
                    -The trade for Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb all but secures that the Redskins will go offensive line with this selection, taking the best on the board in Okung.

                    5. Kansas City Chiefs: Brian Bulaga, OT, Iowa
                    -Eric Berry might be the better player, but the Chiefs will have to do a better job protecting Matt Cassell if they want him to succeed. Thus, they’ll take Bulaga.

                    6. Seattle Seahawks: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
                    -Trading for Charlie Whitehurst means the Seahawks aren’t going to take Jimmy Clausen here; instead, they shore up their offensive line by drafting Williams.

                    7. Cleveland Browns: Eric Berry, DB, Tennessee
                    -Great scenario for the Browns, as a run on offensive tackles has caused Tennessee stand-out Eric Berry to slide to them; he should become an immediate starter at safety.

                    8. Oakland Raiders: Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
                    -Though Oakland traded for Kamerion Wimbley, they plan to use him at linebacker. Pierre-Paul would team with Richard Seymour and provide Oakland with a dangerous pass rush.

                    9. Buffalo Bills: Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
                    -With the top three tackles off the board, do the Bills reach for Anthony Davis? Dan Williams is tempting here as well, but ultimately I think they could go after their quarterback if the cards fall this way.

                    10. Jacksonville Jaguars: Joe Haden, CB, Florida
                    -The Jaguars will likely look to move down from this spot, but if they can’t, they’ll be wise to consider Florida’s Joe Haden as a potential starter next to Rashean Mathis.

                    11. Denver Broncos (f/CHI): Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama
                    -Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant is tempting here, but the Broncos need to find more pieces for their 3-4 defense. McClain is an ideal inside ‘backer.

                    12. Miami Dolphins: Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee
                    -The suspension of Jason Ferguson means the Dolphins are going to have some nose tackle issues this...

                    Nick's Final 2010 Two-Round NFL Mock and Seven-Round Rams Mock
                    by Nick
                    This thing is likely going to be out of date in less than 24 hours because of trades and whatnot, but it's unlikely I pump another one of these out between now and the draft. So I present to you my final projection for the 2010 NFL Draft! Enjoy!




                    ROUND ONE

                    1. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
                    -There’s been talk as the draft nears that the Rams would be wise to trade down from this pick. However, without a blockbuster offer, it’s unlikely to happen. Sam Bradford may not be the best player in this class, but as the best quarterback, he fills the Rams’ biggest need and gives them a fresh face to build around.

                    2. Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
                    -On Monday, Lions fans attending a team pre-draft event chanted the name of Ndamukong Suh, to which head coach Jim Schwartz said, “You won’t be disappointed.” Though some believe the Lions are a candidate to take an offensive tackle, Sam Bradford’s selection by the Rams cements Suh as Detroit’s pick here.

                    3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
                    -Reports suggest that the Buccaneers may prefer Nebraska defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh over McCoy, but they’ll certainly be happy to get the outstanding Oklahoma lineman with Suh off the board. McCoy played in a penetrating one-gap defense for the Sooners, so he’ll feel right at home in Tampa Bay’s defense.

                    4. Washington Redskins: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
                    -This pick could really go either way between the top two tackles, but there seems to be some legitimate buzz about Trent Williams being the better fit for Mike Shanahan’s zone blocking system. The Redskins are in desperate need for offensive line help, so unless Sam Bradford slips, it’s hard to believe they won’t look at either Williams or Russell Okung.

                    -The Chiefs will have an interesting decision to make. They already feel as if they have a talented left tackle in Branden Albert, but Okung’s addition would allow them to move Albert to another position on the line, thus upgrading two spots.

                    -Despite public comments by Mike Holmgren, the Browns may give some consideration to Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen. However,...
