3 rd Mock from cbssportsline

Postby SwiperNoSwiping » Wed Feb 02, 2005 6:15 pm

Just copying and pasting for your all's reading enjoyment. The author was Michael Fabiano (take it for what it's worth)

Round 1

1. Peyton Manning, QB, Indianapolis: Manning led countless owners to a title with his 4,557-yard, 49-TD season, and has become one of the league's most coveted players. Indianapolis has several weak defenses on its schedule next season, so Manning should continue to dominate.


2. LaDainian Tomlinson, RB, San Diego: Tomlinson will also warrant serious consideration as the first overall selection. He is productive, durable and reliable ... three characteristics that make him the league's most attractive and valuable running back.


3. Shaun Alexander, RB, Seattle: Alexander finished with a career-best 20 total TDs this season and has rushed for at least 14 scores in each of this past four seasons. Tomlinson remains the most valuable running back in all formats, but Alexander isn't far behind.


4. Daunte Culpepper, QB, Minnesota: Culpepper possesses a cannon arm and can be a terror for the opposition to tackle at 6-foot-4, 264 pounds. Unless the team decides to trade WR Randy Moss, owners should expect another stellar season from this versatile field general.


5. Priest Holmes, RB, Kansas City: Holmes was on pace to score 30 total TDs before an injured knee ended his season, so he should produce behind the league's most formidable offensive line. Owners need to insure him with RB Larry Johnson, but Holmes remains valuable.


6. Domanick Davis, RB, Houston: Davis compiled 40 receptions, 1,147 all-purpose yards and nine total TDs in his final eight starts, and became the centerpiece of the offense for coach Dom Capers. With potential to spare and impressive skills, Davis is set to reach the next level.


7. Donovan McNabb, QB, Philadelphia: McNabb threw for 3,975 yards, 31 TDs with a mere eight interceptions this season, not to mention his three scores on the ground. His skills, experience and the presence of WR Terrell Owens will make him a lock as the third quarterback selected.


8. Edgerrin James, RB, Indianapolis: James, an unrestricted free agent, recorded 2,031 all-purpose yards and nine TDs in his sixth pro season. He should continue to produce monster numbers with the Colts or another team .. maybe one that resides in Miami.


9. Willis McGahee, RB, Buffalo: McGahee rushed for 1,128 yards and 13 TDs despite the fact that he received 19 carries in the four contests of the season. He would have even more value than James if it weren't for his lack of production as a receiver out of the backfield.


10.Randy Moss, WR, Minnesota: An injured hamstring limited Moss to 13 starts, but he still recorded 13 TDs ... and one moon shot at Lambeau Field. His name will be at the center of countless trade rumors, but Moss will remain the league's most valuable wide receiver.


11. Clinton Portis, RB, Washington: Portis rushed for 1,315 yards and recorded eight total TDs, but was still considered a bust. He should rebound back to the elite level at running back, so expect a season with 1,200-plus yards, 40-plus receptions and 10-12 TDs.


12. Terrell Owens, WR, Philadelphia: A lethal weapon in the pass attack, Owens possesses a rare combination of strength and athleticism that sets him apart from most wide receivers. While he does tend to deal with minor injuries, Owens remains a solid option in all leagues.


Round 2

13. Ahman Green, RB, Green Bay: A solid runner and receiver out of the backfield, Green should bounce back from a mediocre season and remains a valuable option.


14. Deuce McAllister, RB, New Orleans: A sore ankle hindered him all season, but McAllister still produced 1,302 all-purpose yards and nine rushing TDs.


15. Travis Henry, RB, Buffalo: Henry has the skills to produce solid numbers as a featured back, which he should become after an expected trade out of Buffalo.


16. Corey Dillon, RB, New England: Dillon had his best season as a pro in his first season with the Patriots, and will continue to be a prominent member of the offense.


17. Jamal Lewis, RB, Baltimore: A four-month prison sentence will decrease his value, but Lewis remains the centerpiece of an offense that should take steps to improve.


18. Tiki Barber, RB, N.Y. Giants: Barber won't duplicate his 2,096 all-purpose yards and 15 total TDs, but should still post nice numbers as the Giants' main weapon.


19. Chris Brown, RB, Tennessee: Injuries caused Brown to miss five starts this season, but he still rushed for an impressive 1,067 yards and six TDs.


20. Curtis Martin, RB, N.Y. Jets: Martin rushed for a league-best 1,697 yards with 13 total TDs at 31. His age is an issue, but it's difficult to bet against this veteran.


21. Rudi Johnson, RB, Cincinnati: Johnson was solid as a featured back and is a nice option in what has the potential to be a formidable Bengals offense.


22. Julius Jones, RB, Dallas: Jones would have rushed for 1,835 yards and 16 TDs over a full season based on his seven starts as a rookie.


23. Kevin Jones, RB, Detroit: Jones started slow but finished hot in his first season, and has secured his role as the featured back in an offense with immense potential.


24. Marvin Harrison, WR, Indianapolis: Harrison is durable, reliable and should continue to compile solid numbers in what is the league's most potent offense.


Round 3

25. Torry Holt, WR, St. Louis: Holt scored 10 TDs and become the first wide receiver ever to post 1,300-plus yards in five consecutive seasons.


26. Brian Westbrook, RB, Philadelphia: Westbrook recorded a career-best 1,515 all-purpose yards with nine total TDs as the Eagles' featured back.


27. Andre Johnson, WR, Houston: Touted as the next T.O., Johnson should post the best numbers of what should be a memorable career in his third pro season.


28. Tatum Bell, RB, Denver: Bell is expected to become the Broncos' featured back next season, so his value and potential production are limitless.


29. Fred Taylor, RB, Jacksonville: Taylor found the end zone a mere three times last season, but he still recorded 1,569 all-purpose yards.


30. Chad Johnson, WR, Cincinnati: Johnson has posted 90-plus receptions, 1,250-plus yards and at least nine TDs in the past two seasons.


31. Tony Gonzalez, TE, Kansas City: Gonzalez led all receivers with 102 receptions and remains the first option in what should continue to be a lethal Chiefs' pass attack.


32. Michael Vick, QB, Atlanta: Vick was considered a bust from a statistical perspective, but it's difficult to ignore his immense potential.


33. Javon Walker, WR, Green Bay: Walker posted career highs across the board and emerged as the first option for QB Brett Favre in the pass attack.


34. Antonio Gates, TE, San Diego: Gates led all tight ends with 13 TDs in his second pro season, and his 81 receptions were fourth-best at his position.


35. Reggie Wayne, WR, Indianapolis: Wayne has improved his number of receptions, yards and TDs in each of the past three seasons.


36. Thomas Jones, RB, Chicago: The Bears will be more run-oriented, so expect Jones to produce 1,400-plus all-purpose yards and 10-12 TDs.


Yet another mock to see Deuce, Green, and Lewis going in the 2nd rd.

Travis Henry at #15, has he gone crazy, Peyton at #1, that makes me look like a genius picking him #8 in the Mock Draft II.

Vick in the 3rd? Fabiano has a major man-crush on him. I am not a fan of this mock in the slightest, he overvalued QBs and undervalued stud RBs.

Yeah, this is one of the worst mock I have ever seen probably. Daunte and Donovan both in round 1? Is this guy crazy? I think most of us could come up with a better mock sitting right here not looking at anything else.

Agreed, it seems every year a bunch of so-called experts draft Michael Vick a few rounds too early. I guess Fabio didn't learn much. Anyone else think Domanick Davis was drafted a bit early?

I almost want to send the guy an e-mail or something asking him where he got these rankings, because they couldn't have came out of a 'sane brain.
