NFL First Round Mock

 

1. Houston Texans: Reggie Bush RB USC

There is no way you can pass up talent like this. Although Dominic Davis is on the Texans, Bush and Davis run completely different styles and could eventually turn into the best 1-2 combo for running back in the NFL. Other possible picks are D'Brickashaw Ferguson (OT), Mario Williams (DE), and Vince Young (QB).

 

2. New Orleans Saints: Mario Williams DE NC State

Williams will fill the void that Darren Howard left when he went to the Philadelphia Eagles. On paper, the Saints seem to have some good defensive ends, but Charles Grant under-performed last year and Will Smith showed signs of potentially becoming a star in the NFL. Williams and Smith could make a standum that is close to Osi and Strahan, but they will be together longer. Other possible picks are D'Brickashaw Ferguson (OT) and Matt Leinart (QB).

 

3. Tennessee Titans: Matt Leinart QB USC

Leinart doesn't have the best arm strength or mobility, but he is very accurate and is Chad Pennington like. Leinart will be back together with offensive coordinator Norm Chow, who made Leinart into the highest rated QB that he is. The Titans love Vince Young, but Young is only a project who has potential. Other possible picks are Vince Youngg (QB) and Jay Cutler (QB).

 

4. New York Jets: D'Brickashaw Ferguson OT Virginia

D'Brick is one of the most dominant OT's that has come out of the draft in recent years. He was rated as the best player going into the draft before the season. The Jets lost Jason Fabini on the left side and D'Brick will be the franchise left tackle to fill that void. I could see a QB go here, but the Jets traded their 6th round pick for Patrick Ramsey just in case Chad Pennington's injury ruins his season or career. Other possible picks are Matt Leinart (QB), Vince Young (QB), Jay Cutler (QB), AJ Hawk (LB).

 

5. Green Bay Packers: AJ Hawk LB Ohio State

Hawk is the best player from a defense that potentially can have 4 starters go in the first round of the draft. This defense was led by him, and is most likely a sure pick. Green Bay's defense was horrendous in the past two years, and could potential be in disater is Brett Favre doesn't come back and play like he used to. Other possible picks are Mario Williams (DE) and Michael Huff (DB).

 

6. San Fransisco 49ers: Vernon Davis TE Maryland

Davis is the most athletic tight end to ever come out of the dradt. He runs a 40 time (4.38) that is faster than most people in the draft, and he is stronger than most people also. He could be the number 1 target for Alex Smith, before Smith becomes the next Ryan Leaf and is released. The 49ers used last years pick on Alex Smith, who had only 1 TD to 11 interceptions. With the loss of WR Brandon Llod to the Redskins, Davis could be the number 1 target in his rookie year. Other possible picks are Michael Huff (DB) and AJ Hawk (LB)

 

7. Oakland Raiders: Vince Young QB Texas

Young has the potential to be like Daunte Culpepper or Donavan McNabb. He has arm strength, accuracy, and mobility, but he lacks the ability to call plays at the line, read defenses, and he has a throwing motion that may cause more fumbles than the average QB. The Raiders signed Aaron Brooks to play QB, but he only signed a 2-year deal, which could mean he is only a temporary replacement for Kerry Collins. Other possible picks are Vernon Davis (TE), Michael Huff (DB), Haloti Ngata (DT), and Jay Cutler (QB).

 

8. Buffalo Bills: Winston Justice OT USC

Justice will fill either the void for Jonas Jennings, who left for the 49ers last year, or Mike Williams, who was released this year. Justice's stock has been rising, and this will fill a need for Buffalo. Other possible picks are Haloti Ngata (DT) and Brodrick Bunkley (DT)

 

9. Detroit Lions: Michael Huff DB Texas

Huff can play either CB or Safety, which are both needs for the Lions. Huff is a playmaker, and can play physical. He was the game saving tackle on the fourth down play that eventually made Texas win the National Championship over USC. The Lions have picked a WR in the first round for the last 3 years, but I think the streak will be over. Other possible picks are Jay Cutler (QB) and Ernie Sims (LB)

 

10. Arizona Cardinals: Jay Cutler QB Vanderbilt

Cutler's stock has been soring after the combine. Cutler was on a team that didn't have talent around him, and he took a beating behind that line. Before the combine, he was rated as a 3rd round pick. The Cardinals have a good QB in Kurt Warner, but he is past his prime and this will probably be his last year in the NFL. Other possible picks are Vernon Davis (TE), Haloti Ngata (DT), and Brodrick Bunkley (DT).

 

11. St. Louis Rams: Jimmy Williams DB Virginia Tech

Williams can play both CB and Safety, but the Rams are in more need at CB. He would have been an even higher pick, if it weren't for his character issues. Can potentially become a better CB than formal Virginia Tech teammate DeAngelo Hall of the Atlanta Falcons. The Rams do not reall have a number 1 CB, and Williams could start from day one. Other possible picks are Ernie Sims (LB), Vernon Davis (TE), and Chad Greenway (LB).

 

12. Cleveland Browns: Haloti Ngata DT Oregon

Ngata is a huge, run stuffing nose tackle that will fit perfectly with Romeo Crennel's new 3-4 defense. At the weight of 338, he covers a major spot that and will help stop most running plays, and he can helpo the Linebackers in stopping the run. The Browns departed the majority of their line a year ago, and need to rebuild it, and this is a perfect guy to rebuild it around. Other possible picks are Brodrick Bunkley (DT), Chad Greenway (LB), Manny Lawson (LB/DE), and Kamerion Wimbley (LB/DE).

 

13. Baltimore Ravens: Brodrick Bunkley DT FSU

Bunkley's stock has been soring since the combine. He bench pressed 225 pounds over 40 times, which is amazing. This pick will make a great combo in the middle with Bunkley and Kelly Gregg. Other possible picks are Haloti Ngata (DT) and Jay Cutler (QB).

 

14. Philadelphia Eagles: Chad Jackson WR Florida

Jackson's stock has gone way up since the combine. He has size and speed, which is a rare combo in the NFL. Although he wasn't a deep threat in college, he still collected 88 catches this year, which is still down from the year before, where he got 92. The Eagles thought they had a franchise WR in TO, but that turned out wrong, and now they will turn to Jackson and hope he doesn't have the same luck as the other WR's who have come out of Florida in the past drafts. Other possible picks are Brodrick Bunkley (DT), Ernie Sims (LB), Santonio Holmes (WR), Chad Greenway (LB).

 

15. Denver Broncos: Santonio Holmes WR Ohio State

Holmes does not have the size, but he had the big play ability at OSU. He will be the future replacement for Rod Smith, who still has not slowed down after many seasons. Holmes and Leile could have the ability to get a touchdown on any play. This pick could change if the Broncos acquire Javon Walker. Other possible picks are Chad Jackson (WR), DeAngelo Williams (RB), and Laurence Maroney (RB).

 

16. Miami Dolpins: Ernie Sims LB FSU

Sims has the big play ability that the Dolphins tried to get with Lavar Arrington. Sims is fast and can make the big hit or the interception, but has problems with concussions because he likes to hit with his head. The Dolphins lost Junior Seau, which is why the Dolphins need Sims to replace him. Other possible picks are Chad Greenway (LB), Santonio Holmes (WR) and Chad Jackson (WR).

 

17. Minnesota Vikings: Chad Greenway LB Iowa

Greenway was a top 10 pick before he had a bad showing at the combine. He could have slipped out of the first round, but his instincts and performance during his college careers brought him to the Vikings. The Vikings are trying to make their linebackers better, and EJ Henderson, Chad Greenway, and Napolean Harris could be a great combo for their team in the future as linebackers. Other possible picks are Ernie Sims (LB), Laurence Maroney (RB), DeAngelo Williams (RB), Donte Whitner (S), and Ko Simpson (S).

 

18. Dallas Cowboys: Manny Lawson LB/DE NC State

Lawson is a tweaker who could make an impact just like DeMarcus Ware, who is also with Dallas. THe potenial group of Lawson and Ware could make it scary for all oponents, because they could play linebacker on running downs then go to the line on passing downs. Other possible picks are Jason Allen (DB), Donte Whitner (S), and Chad Greenway (LB).

 

19. San Diego Chargers: Tye Hill CB Clemson

Hill could have been the first CB taken because of his combine, but Jimmy Williams has more size on him. Hill is small, but he has a big play ability and speed to recover from anything. He does drop balls occasionally, but that can be changed. The Chargers are hoping with the addition of Hill, that it could help Jammer, who is a disappointment so far. Other possible picks are Antonio Cromartie (CB), Donte Whitner (S), and Ko Simpson (S).

 

20. Kansas City Chiefs: Antonio Cromartie CB FSU

If he had not torn his ACL this year, he would have been the best CB in the draft and a top 5 pick. He says he has fully recovered from his injury, which is why he is taken in the first round. He has size and speed, running a 4.41 in the 40 yard dash. Kansas City would have liked to have a WR drop to them, but their biggest needs are WR and CB. Other possible picks are Santonio Holmes (WR), Chad Jackson (WR), Tye Hill (CB), and Sinorice Moss (WR).

 

21. New England Patriots: Bobby Carpenter LB Ohio State

Although the Patriots would have liked Hill or Cromartie to fall, they are in need of a LB after Willie McGinnest left for Cleveland. Carpenter was overshadowed by AJ Hawk, who was the other linebacker at OSU. Carpenter can play all 3 LB positions, and likes a 3-4 better than a 4-3 defense. Other possible picks are Antonio Cromartie (CB), Tye Hill (CB), DeAngelo Williams (RB), Laurence Maroney (RB), and Demeco Ryans (LB).

 

22. San Fransisco 49ers: Kamerion Wimbley DE/LB FSU

Wimbley is a guy that will start right away, filling the void that Julian Peterson left when he went to Seattle. Wimbley will play LB because of the 49ers 3-4 defense. He could play defensive end, but he would need to get bigger, because he only weighs 248 lbs. Other possible picks are Sinorice Moss (WR), Demeco Ryans (LB), Thomas Howard (LB).

 

23. Tampa Bay Bucaneers: D'Qwell Jackson MLB Maryland

Jackson may be a bit of a reach here, but he will be a future replacement for Shelton Quarles in the middle. He could also play OLB, but he lacks speed for that (4.70 40 yard dash). While Jackson and Shawn Merriman (2005 Defensive Rookie of the Year) were playing together, many said Jackson was the better of the two. Other possible picks are Demeco Ryans (LB), Jonathan Joesph (CB), Marcus McNeil (OT), Eric Winston (OT).

 

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Gabe Watson DT Michigan

Watson is an underachiever who doesn't always try his hardest. If he was different, he could possibly be the best DT in the draft. Watson is big (339 lbs) and is a natural run stuffer. He is either a boom or bust player. An eventual replacement for Sam Adams who signed with the Bengals this year. Other possible picks are Donte Whitner (S), Ko Simpson (S), Demeco Ryans (LB), and Thomas Howard (LB).

 

25. New York Giants: Jonathan Joesph CB South Carolina

Joesph doesn't have the height you want for a CB these days (5'11) but he has great timed speed running a 4.31 in the 40 yard dash. He has great recovery speed in case of him getting beat deep. He has the same mold as Will Allen, but Joesph can actually intercept a ball. Joesph led his team in interceptions last year. He is reliable at tackling, including on run plays. He has tons of potential to become elite in the pro level. Only started one full year, which was in 2005. The eventual replacement for Sam Madison. Can play nickel his first year, so it gives him time to learn the pro level. Other possible picks are Demeco Ryans (LB), Bobby Carpenter (LB), Antonio Cromartie (CB), Ashton Youboty (CB), Gabe Watson (DT), and Kelly Jennings (CB).

 

26. Chicago Bears: Leonard Pope TE Georgia

Pope will give Grossman or Griese a good target to throw to along with Muhammad. Pope has great hands and can go deep to beat the defense. Plays like Antonio Gates, with great leaping ability to go up and get the ball at its highest point. He has a lot of upside. Not the best blocker. Will replace underachieving Desmond Clark. Other possible picks are Sinorice Moss (WR), Marcedes Lewis (TE), Ko Simpson (S), Donte Whitner (S).

 

27. Carolina Panthers: DeAngelo Williams RB Memphis

Williams has dropped on many boards because of him not having anything special about his running ability. Has great instincts and will be on the field a lot, because Foster has yet to play a full season without getting hurt. Has patiences to let the blockers move and make a hole. He was the most productive running back in college history. Other possible picks are Lendale White (RB), Laurence Maroney (RB), Thomas Howard (LB), and Demeco Ryans (LB).

 

28. Jacksonville Jaguars: Thomas Howard LB UTEP

Howard is one of the most athletic linebackers ever. He is very raw and new to his position, because he used to play safety. Extremely fast (4.42 40 time) and has size to be an OLB. Great in coverage. He is a great pass rusher and has a knack for making the big hit. Does not have great instincts. Dropped two interceptions in the senior bowl. Should not start his first year in the pros, but will be the eventual replacement for recently lost Akin Ayodele. Other possible picks are Demeco Ryans (LB), Lendale White (RB), DeAngelo Williams (RB), and Laurence Maroney (RB).

 

29. New York Jets: Laurence Maroney RB Minnesota

Maroney is the replacement for Curtis Martin. Maroney has a big play threat on any play, which is something that Curtis Martin never had in his career. He was very productive on the college level, but may not be as productive on the pro level. He is patient, has great instincts, and has great vision on the field. Although he is smaller than you would like, he still has the ability to break tackles. He is faster than his 40 time (4.47). Can return kicks. 2005 was his first year as a starter. Other possible picks are Demeco Ryans (LB), Thomas Howard (LB), Lendale White (RB), DeAngelo Williams (RB), Eric Winston (OT), Tamba Hali (DE), and Mathias Kiwanuka.

 

30. Indianapolis Colts: Demeco Ryans LB Alabama

Ryans is not the best athlete out of the deep draft of LBs, but may be the smartest with football knowledge out of all of them. He has great instincts and can direct other players to where they need to be on the defense. Could be a Peyton Manning like play caller on the defensive side of the ball. He plays faster than he timed in the 40 yard dash(4.62). He is a sure tackler and has been productive throughout his whole career at Alabama. Can play any of the three linebacker positions. Replacement for David Thornton. Other possible picks are Thomas Howard (LB), Laurence Maroney (RB), Lendale White (RB), and DeAngelo Williams (RB).

 

31. Seattle Seahawks: Sinorice Moss WR Miami

Moss is extremely undersized, but so are Steve Smith and Santana Moss (his brother), who were two of the best WRs this year. Moss can stretch the field, and has great acceleration. Can go all the way any time he gets the ball. Has good hands and runs exceptional routes. Also can be a returner. Never really started in college, never making a statement on the team. Cannot go over the middle. Would be best as a slot reciever. Will fill the void that Koren Robinson and Joe Jurevicious left in the past years. Other possible picks are Jason Allen (CB/S), Donte Whitner (S), and Ko Simpson (S).

 

32. Pittsburgh Steelers: Donte Whitner S Ohio State

Whitner has dropped in the draft, but could be a great pickup for the Steelers. He could fill the void left from Chris Hope, and the presence of Troy Polamalu could make Whitner make his game even better. He has great speed and and can cover a lot of ground. He is a great tackler and a playmaker. He has great instincts and good hands. A leader on the field and can blitz affectively. May not have a true position between CB and Safety. May be too small to be a safety in the NFL. Only started for one season. Other possible picks are Jason Allen (CB/S), Ko Simpson (S), Sinorice Moss (WR), and Lendale White (RB).

:doh:

 

The chances of us drafting a offensive player beside a OL is highly unlikely.

Didn't Wroten recently fail a drug test from the combine?

 

Yeah... Im not sure what it means though. I dont know what drug it was. I read somewhere that it was steroids but don't know if that was a joke or not. Could have been herb, but I doubt it. Steroids is more like it since I guarantee that Wroten isnt the only player smoking pot (but maybe just the one dumb enough to get caught). Steroids would be terrible news for his draft day aspirations.

no depth, our #2 reciever is old, our #3 reciever is either hurt or has no hands!

 

Wait we dont even have a number 3!!they would all get cut by other teams!

And you think a rookie is going to cure that? :doh:

Rookie WRs have made immediate impacts.

 

If Plax goes down, you do realize our WR core is Toomer, Carter, and Taylor right?

 

Seeing that our main needs have been fileld, I'd be fine with a WR in the first day.

How many rookie wide receivers can you name that had an immediate impact?

 

Randy Moss and Micheal Clayton....... and?
