First Mock Draft

Postby roninmedia » Mon Apr 18, 2005 6:44 pm

I'm not usually one to follow the draft in-depth. Usually I just look for promising rookies during training camps and in the middle of the season. This is the order I believe these players will go regardless of trades.

1 San Francisco  Aaron Rodgers
2 Miami  Ronnie Brown
3 Cleveland  Braylon Edwards
4 Chicago  Carnell Williams
5 Tampa Bay  Alex Smith
6 Tennessee  Mike Williams
7 Minnesota Derrick Johnson
8 Arizona  Cedric Benson
9 Washington  Adam Jones
10 Detroit  Antrell Rolle
11 Dallas  Erasmus James
12 San Diego Shawne Merriman
13 Houston  Alex Barron
14 Carolina  Demarcus Ware
15 Kansas City  Carlos Rogers
16 New Orleans  Travis Johnson
17 Cincinnati  Marcus Spears
18 Minnesota  Troy Williamson
19 St. Louis  Jammal Brown
20 Dallas David Pollack
21 Jacksonville  Thomas Davis
22 Baltimore  Khalif Barnes
23 Seattle  Mark Clayton
24 Green Bay  Marlin Jackson
25 Denver  Heath Miller
26 N.Y. Jets  Mike Patterson
27 Atlanta  Shaun Cody
28 San Diego  Brodney Pool
29 Indianapolis  Dan Cody
30 Pittsburgh  Matt Jones
31 Philadelphia  Roddy White
32 New England  Fabian Washington

interesting, but your entire mock might be turned upside-down if the 'Fins take Smith, and the Browns don't pick up Braylon (although most agree that he is headed to Ohio)

I disagree with some of the picks, but then again that's just me. Very solid mock though.

It really helps if you put teams with each pick, as most of us haven't got the entire first round order memorized.

I highly doubt that the Lions go CB with more pressing needs at both OL and DE, and plenty of equally good prospects at both spots.

Also, I Matt Patterson before Shaun Cody is a bit of a reach, when Cody is considered the definite 2nd best DT (now that Castillo and Hawthorne have become entangled in drug scandals). Pollack is way too low at #20 for the guy who is considered the most talented DE, barring maybe one other guy.

Otherwise, it seems informed and generally conforming to logical picks for each team.

Ummm... why does Dallas take 2 DEs in the first? We have Ellis... and neither of those two are tweeners. Maybe some retooling...

maddog - it would suprise me to see DET go after either a DE or OT in the first rd. From reading everything I possibly can about the Lions situation there are strong sentiments that:
A) they want to trade down (but then again, almost every team in the top 10 wants to trade down)
B) they would prefer giving a couple guys already on the team first crack at the RT position and would rather not use their 1st rd pick on an OT
C) they do not feel they need to go after a DE early.
D) with last yrs injury struggles and and number of 3 wide sets in the NFL they feel a CB would be the most likely target.
E) they also feel that S is a weakness and would like to draft one of those too, but at the 10th spot there really isnt a S worth having there.
F) WR is also a need and dont be suprised if they take one early if a top name somehow falls, but if not look for them to get one later.
G) If DJohnson is still available at 10 they will take him - having one of the youngest, most talented LB corps in the NFL would be appealing, although none of them are true MLB or bruisers, so Im not a fan of this - chances are DJohnson will be a Lion unless he is drafted in the top 9 and DET doesnt trade.
H) No teams are telling the truth about anything right now, so take all of it with a grain of salt.

Seattle has 4 WRs now, they wouldn't add Clayton to the mix, even if it might actually do them some good.
