Quickly, I'd like to thank everyone who dutifully participated and submitted their selections on time.

 

It's clear that the draft format needs revision, as once again the frequency of missed picks was a significant problem. Hopefully I can construct some method for circumventing such problems in future mock drafts.

One thing that I noticed watching and participating in the draft is the depth of talent. Maybe it's just that Im paying close attention to the draft for really the first time this year, but it seemed as if there were still very solid players to pick throughout the entirety of this draft.

 

I knew that LB's were deep but having Jon Alston go in the third!!! That just shows how many quality LB's are available this year. Which made me reconsider our first round pick. All along I've thought that our only options at 25 are Ryans, Carpenter or Greenway but I've begin to think that we should at least consider taking Watson if he's available at 25.

 

I would argue that our greatest need is at DT. I think that even if we draft a LB in the first he won't win a starting job but that a first round rookie would. Gabe Watson has the talent to be a dominating tackle but he hasnt put it together yet (to say the least) but he could really help our team. I think a possible DLine of Strahan, Watson, Joseph, Osi and Tuck could be VERY good. We could take one of the remaining LB's w/ our second round pick: Hodge or Alston are two tempting ones that come to mind right away.

 

Thoughts? Money, whats your take on Watson?

even though my mock draft is void and null because i just traded my 1st round pick... i did a great job for the broncos i think. while they still have a hole on the d-line at dt, i did an excellent job giving the broncos a fierce offensive attack. my new 3rd round pick would probably be traded, so if i had to redo it, i'd probably go deangelo williams at 15, trade my 3rd round pick to the pack for javon walker, keep my 2nd round pick the same, then go dt with my newly acquired other 2nd round pick, and then te with my 4th rounder. stupid 49ers

First, I'd like to thank Money and those who helped him out. Overseeing stuff like this can be a real pain in the ass. Thanks for putting it together, even if you did try to sabotage Pizan during one of your darker hours!

 

Second, I'd add that despite all the missed picks I thought the mock proceeded pretty well. Participation will never be 100% so it's unrealistic to shoot for it. I post on a couple of other boards with a bunch of sports diehards. Those boards have a more mature audience and a faithful following but the mock we did there had missed picks too, so don't beat yourself up too bad Money.

 

Lastly, I thought the Green Bay Packers had far and away the best draft :rock:

Here's my assessment of the best and worst picks of each round. This isn't a "who's the best player, rather it's who got excellent value/addressed a need, etc,:

 

1st round Best Picks:

 

Titans win the lottery with Reggie Bush falling into their laps!

 

Baltimore was the beneficiary of Haloti Ngata's fall

 

New England nabbing Ernie Sims at 21 was pure gold.

 

Indianapolis likely never thought Chad Greenway would be available for them at the end of the first round.

 

Worst:

Detroit - Vince Young. Young's an exciting player but he's also a project. Forget about starting him this year. The Lions may find they already have a starting grade QB in McCown. I simply don't think Detroit was in a position to gamble on a QB after the failed Harrington experiment. If they were going to take a signalcaller first round it had to be a sure thing. Young is NOT a sure thing. A+ for keeping it real though. Millen typically makes the "worst" lists on draft day. You held up your end!

 

Cleveland ... I've already explained this one in detail in another thread but Manny Lawson over Ngata was a mistake.

 

Oakland ... I like Bunkley but I don't like him over Ngata.

 

San Diego - Jason Allen is a major injury risk. You simply can't make that gamble in the middle of round 1.

 

Tampa - I'm already on record as labelling Tye Hill a bust. There are plenty of people who don't agree with me and that's fine. But this pick makes the list since he took Hill over Cromartie.

 

Cincy - Darnell Bing does NOT carry a first round grade. The Bengals got too caught up in need and overlooked much more talented players.

Round 2 Best and Worst Selections:

 

Best:

 

Arizona - Laurence Maroney fell 9 picks into the second round. The Cardinals get a better back than last year's flop JJ Arrington.

 

Buffalo - The Bills made a major gamble in round 1 when they took TE Leonard Davis and didn't address the o-line. The gamble paid off in the second round when they collected Texas Tackle Jonathan Scott.

 

St Louis - D'Qwell Jackson at 46 is excellent value. The Rams really needed to address D after selecting Cutler in round 1

 

Indy - Josh Bullocks at the end of the second represented excellent value. Teamed with Bob Sanders, the Colts are going to punish some receivers.

 

Worst:

 

San Diego - WR Derek Hagan. For a guy who most scouts term a possession receiver, this guy had a major case of the dropsies during Senior Bowl week. Admittedly people are divided on Hagan and I'm not in the camp that likes him. Maybe I'm being harsh on this pick but I think better receiving talent was out there.

 

San Francisco - LB/DB Thomas Howard. I think he's a major project. He also may end up as a safety in the NFL. That's not good news for the Niners, seeing as they took Huff in the first round.

 

Cincy - DT Jonathan Lewis. Once again the Bengals drafted need instead of talent. Lewis is 3rd round talent in most mocks.

 

Jacksonville - CB Daniel Manning. He's got good triangle numbers and most scouts like his upside but he's widely considered a 2nd DAY, not round, selection.

3rd Round Best:

 

NY Jets - C Greg Eslinger. Some feel he, not Mangold, is the best Center in the draft. I don't agree with that assessment but I still feel he's a tremendous talent. He is the best pulling interior lineman in the draft. He fits better with Atlanta and Denver's zone blocking scheme but the Jets are more than happy to get him to replace Mawae.

 

Buffalo- DT Dusty Dvoracek. Bills are more than happy to take a gamble on this guy. They need the help up front.

 

Dallas - DT Rodrique Wright. The guy can be an enigma. But he also has the tools to be the best DT in the draft. Dallas gets a gem here in the 3rd round.

 

Atlanta - Pat Watkins is a steal this late. It's rare to find a safety prospect with his size who also has the speed to hang with top receivers. It's a mystery to me why you don't see Watkins name higher in mocks. This was one of the best value picks of the entire mock.

 

Indy - Colts pluck another highly regarded gem at the end of a round. This guy's speed in Indy's offense? Look out.

 

I didn't list any bust picks for round 3 as just about every player taken at this point has some warts.

 

As for best drafts, I'd say the Colts and Buffalo performed the best.

Just thought I'd correct your typo. you must mean Veron Davis. Must have got sidetracked thinking of offensive linemen from Texas

Funny how that works out. The Bills GM missed his top pick while the Colts GM missed all his picks.

 

Although I'm really not a big Jon Scott fan.

How can you say that was one of the best? One of the dumbest. They now would have Edge, JJ Arrington, Maroney, and Shipp?!

In this case they had to pick the BPA and they could always use one of these guys for trade bait. Who knows how long Edge could last, maybe his knee will blow out again.

 

Then they still had JJ and Shipp. There was no need for Maroney. And Edge blew his knee out what, 4 years ago?

Maroney was IMO the BPA after the 1st round ended.

RBs knees are in question after every single hand off they take. It can't hurt having a guy like Maroney back up Edge. Because if Edge goes down, there season may too.

 

JJs looked very bad in his first year. Granted, he was a rookie but he looked bad.

 

Shipp is nothing that special. He's your Derrick Ward type back and he could easily be replaced.

It hardly makes sense to pick a running back in the second round two years in a row, especially after the first year you picked up arguably one of the best RB's in the league, no matter what his injury history. They need offensive line help, not 3 running backs with great skills. I like how people do BPA but you don't go that far.

Arrington stinks, so I'm not worried about picking a RB for the 2nd year in a row because the first one is terrible.

 

The offensive line need was addressed with Winston Justice in the first round.

There are exceptions and Maroney may be one. I think you can't have too many good backs because these are the guys you rely on for offense over 300 times a year.

 

They could also spell Edge with this guy and keep him fresh.
