My First NFL Mock(with a couple trades)

Benson being the #1 back seems to be the general consensus, but I agree with Vikes_fan here. I've always been more impressed with Cadillac. The guy very deceivingly has superb strength because he runs agressively, and brings a shiftiness to the table on top of that that the other two top RB's can't match.

I could see Cleveland trading up, but the problem is I just dont think they will do it with Rodgers being the best available QB.

Cedric Benson is the #1 back.

Alex Smith won't go to Tampa, they will choose Caddy or Ronnie. Griese had a great second half and he isn't very old.

Justin Tuck on paper looks to be probably the most athletic DE in the draft, but he wont go that high. Late first, early second.

Alex Barron should go top 12.

Anttaj Hawthorne could not possibly go any worse than 18. If he is available, the Vikings would take him in a heartbeat.

Thomas Davis, like Alex Barron, should go top 12.

I believe that Corey Webster is better than Marlin Jackson.

Solid mock, though.


I wouldn't count on Hawthorne going top 18, his stock fell a lot this year. He is not even in the 1st round in many mocks.

Did you see Webster at the Senior Bowl? Travis Daniels outplayed him.

There's no way in hell the Colts take a defensive end in the first round. We already have Robert Mathis opposite Dwight Freeney. I'm guessing the Colts go with a defensive back, someone like LSU's Corey Webster. But there's just no way we grab a defensive end when we already have two studs.

I think Williams is a much better reciever than Edwards. The only thing hurting him is that he didn't play last year. I think Edwards won't be a very good WR in the pros. He drops too many passes to be reliable. As long as Williams has a good showing at the combine, I think the Bears will take him over Edwards.

Not necessarilly saying I disagree with you, just pointing out a contradiction. It seems like everyone except the "experts" thinks Williams is better.

Never stopped Seattle's WR's from trying...lol.But seriously,this is the Bears we're talking about here...they will probably draft a fullback first,then cut him before pre-season!Or try to convert him into a QB.God it sucks being a Bear fan.

If you are going to knock Braylon for dropping passes, you have to give him credit for making catches no one else can. If Mike Williams runs a 4.55 or better, he will go first otherwise it will be Braylon.

I will give credit when credit's do, Braylon makes some unbelievable catches. But he seems to drop the easy ones occasionally.
