<h4> #1         Detroit                        QB                  Matthew Stafford                              Georgai</h4>

<p>            Rumors have them possibly taking Jason Smith, but they can get a quality lineman later in the draft. Stafford could be the franchise QB that they are looking for. He has the size & skill set, but can he be succeed in Detroit.</p>

<p><strong>#2           St Louis                      OT                   Jason Smith                                        Baylor</strong></p>

<p>            Head Coach Steve Spagnaula has stated that he wants to run the ball. They picked up center Jason Brown from Baltimore in free agency & will continue to improve the o-line, with Smith. The Rams released Orlando Pace & will draft Smith to be his replacement.</p>

<p><strong>#3          Kansas City                OT                   Eugene Monroe                                  Virginai</strong></p>

<p>           They are clearly rebuilding the offense by trading for Matt Cassel. Protecting their exspensive investment is top priority. He is a dominating tackle, who will help keep Cassel upright.</p>

<p><strong>#4           Seattle                       LB                    Aaron Curry                                        Wake Forest</strong></p>

<p>            After signing TJ Houshmanzadeh in free agency, the WR position is no longer top priority. The Seahawks traded away LB Julian Peterson, to Detroit, and will look to fill the open spot. The 08' Butkus Award winner is a hard hitter, who can rush the passer (7 Sacks) & drop smoothly into coverage (5 INts, 3 Tds).</p>

<p><strong>#5           Clevland                     DE                   Everette Brown                                  Florida St.</strong></p>

<p>            He has very good quickness & can play sideline to sideline. He uses his good moves to rush the passer (23 Sacks) and he closes fast on the ball.</p>

<p><strong>#6          Cincinatti                    OT                    Michael Oher                                      Missippii</strong></p>

<p>            The Bengals have 2 glaring needs after OT Stacy Andrews & WR TJ Houshmanzadeh to free agencey. They picked up Laveranues Coles to fill the WR spot. They could draft a young WR , but if they can't protect Carson Palmer what is the use. Oher is a tall athletic OT, with quick hands & good feet.</p>

<p><strong>#7          Oakland                      WR                  Jeremy Macklin                                  Missouri</strong></p>

<p>           Everyone knows the Raiders love to draft speed & this year will be no different. Macklin can flat out fly & has great vision. He will instantly improve both the passing and return games. He was a versatile scorer in college with 33 total tds(16rec, 6rush, 3pr, 2kr).</p>

<p><strong>#8          Jacksonville               WR                  Michael Crabtree                               Texas Tech</strong></p>

<p>           Free agency changed his draft position, not his foot injury. The Jaguars need aplaymaker at WR and Crabtree is to good to slide any farther. The 2x Biletnikoff winner had surgery on his foot & will be ready for the start of the season. He has terrific speed and great hands.</p>

<p><strong>#9          Green Bay                   DT                   BJ Raji                                                Boston College</strong></p>

<p>            The Packers will draft Raji to be the NT in their 3-4 defense. He will be a disruptive run stopper. He has very good speed for a man his size.</p>

<p><strong>#10        San Fransisco            CB                    Malcolm Jenkins                               Ohio St.</strong></p>

<p>           The secondary is in need of a big upgrade. Jenkins is a lockdown corner who is very physical, closes quickly and makes sure tackles.  They may also look at Mark Sanchez here as well.</p>

<p><strong>#11       Buffalo                         DE                    Brian Orakpo                                      Texas</strong></p>

<p><strong>                </strong>The Bills need to upgrade the d-line. Kelsay and Schobel are getting older, so adding depth and talent here is a must. He is very good pass rusher (21.5 Sacks).</p>

<p><strong>#12        Denver                        LB</strong>                <strong>Rey Maualuga                                   USC</strong></p>

<p>            He is the LB they have been looking for ever since they let Al Wilson go. He has that same kind of intensity. He plays aggressive and has a knack for finding the ball.</p>

<p><strong>#13        Washington               DE                     Aaron Maybin                                   Penn St.</strong></p>

<p>            After releasing Jason Taylor, the Skins need a DE. He is long and gets off the ball quickly. He will also help them get younger.</p>

<p><strong>#14         New Orleans              CB                     Vontae Davis                                    Illinois</strong></p>

<p>            Because of the their defense the Saints are forced to out score everyoned, so they will look to improve the defense. Davis is a fast , strong & very athletic playmaking corner, who makes good reads and gets to the ball.</p>

<h4>#15         Houston                     LB                     Brian Cushing                                     USC</h4>

<p><strong>                 </strong>They will be looking for someone to pair with Demco Ryans. Cushing gets to the ball and makes big plays. He is very talented and will learn alot from Ryans.</p>

<p><strong>#16         San Diego                  RB                     Knowshon Moreno                          Georgai</strong></p>

<p>             The Chargers need to find LTs' replacement. Sproles is a spot starter/3rd down back/returner, his main value. Moreno is an every down back, who is very good catching the ball as well. This would be a perfect fit for both.</p>

<p><strong>#17         NY Jets                      QB                      Mark Sanchez                                  USC</strong></p>

<p>             The Jets can't count on what they have at QB, so grabbing Sanchez is a must. He can make all of the throws and has a big arm. The Jets may have to trade up to get him, as other teams (CHI) may try to do also.</p>

<p><strong>#18          Chicago                     WR                     Darius Heyward-Bey                    Maryland</strong></p>

<p>             Considering Sanchez is gone, the Bears will look to add weapons on offense. He has good hands and speed, plus he will get a chance to start right away.</p>

<p><strong>#19          Tampa Bay               LB                       James Laurinatis                          Ohio St.</strong></p>

<p>             They have to get a LB after releasing Derrick Brooks & Cato June. He is the best available LB left on the board. His stock has dropped some since last year  and Tampa will get a good player, with a high motor.</p>

<h4>#20          Andre Smith             OT                      Andre Smith                                  Alabama</h4>

<p><strong>                 </strong>Talent wise he should not fall this far, but his questionable actions at the combine, have hurt his stock. Detroit needs a lineman and should cease this oppuritunity to get such a quality OT. He could be a big key to Stafford having a good year.</p>

<p><strong>#21          Philadelphia              RB                       Chris Wells                                     Ohio St.</strong></p>

<p>              They lost Correll Buckhalter to free agency and need to fill the void. Wells size makes him good at short yardage and goal line chances. He could eventually replace Westbrook in 2-3 years.</p>

<p><strong>#22          Minnasota                  CB                       Darius Butler                                Connecticut</strong></p>

<p>             Butler is a quality CB, who is a ballhawk (10 Ints). The NFC is loaded with good WRs, so getting someone to cover them is a must.</p>

<p><strong>#23          New England             LB                         Clay Matthews                              USC</strong></p>

<p>             After trading Mike Vrabel to Kansas City, they need a LB. Matthews has alot of potential & is movimg up the draft boards. He and Mayo, last seasons DROY, would pair up well together & give the Pats the younger look they want at LB.</p>

<p><strong>#24          Atlanta</strong>                 <strong>LB                        Larry English                                 N. Illinois</strong></p>

<p>              Like Tampa Bay, after losing their top 2 LBs (Brooking & Boley), they need a LB in the worst way. English is a very active and agressive player. He should fit well, into Atlanta's defensive scheme. If they don't like him the they will have to trade up to get one they do.</p>

<p><strong>#25          Miami                         CB                          DJ Moore    </strong>                          <strong>Vanderbilt</strong></p>

<p>             With all the top flight talented WR's in this division, the Dolphins can use all the help they can get in the secondary. He has some experience as a returner as well.</p>

<p><strong>#26          Baltimore                   WR                      Percy Harvin                              Florida</strong></p>

<p>             Derrick Mason is getting older, so they need to find his replacement. Percy is a big time playmaker and the Ravens need that. He has blazing speed and is a scorer. He will also be very valuable to them as a returner. He will get planty of chances to be on the field.</p>

<p><strong>#27          Indianapolis              WR                      Hakeem Nicks                             North Carolina</strong></p>

<p>             They need to add depth after cutting HOF Marvin Harrison. He will get plenty of chances to catch the ball, in Indy's pass heavy offense. He has terrific hands (181 receptions) & can find the end zone (21 tds). He will benefit from watching Reggie Wayne as well.</p>

<p><strong>#28         Philadelphia                TE                        Brandon Pettigrew                    Oklahoma St.</strong></p>

<p>             They solved their o-line needs, by signing Stacy Andrews away from Cincinattii. Finding a replacement for LJ Smith & keeping Mcnabb happy is top concern now. At 6'6" he would be a big target to throw to and can help in the run game as a blocker.</p>

<p><strong>#29          NY Giants                   DE                        Michael Johnson                        Georgia Tech</strong></p>

<p>             The Giants like to stock up on DE's and LB's. Johnson is tall & has long arms (2 BK). He is a very good pass rusher (19 Sacks). He would fit nicely into the rotation.</p>

<p><strong>#30           Tennessee                 DE                       Robert Ayers                              Tennessee</strong></p>

<p>              They lost Albert Haynesworth to free agency & will add depth along the defensive line. He is a disruptive playmaker (15 Tfl & 3 Sacks last season). The Titans would win some style points with fans for drafting a home grown guy.</p>

<p><strong>#31            Arizona                     RB                        Donald Brown                             Connecticut</strong></p>

<p>               Edgerrin James wants out of Arizona and will probably get his wish. With both Moreno and Wells off the board, the Cardinals will take the versatile Brown. He is fast, durable, has good vision & hands. His recieving abilty makes him avery good fit in this offense.</p>

<p><strong>#32           Pittsburgh                 OT                        Eben Britton                                Arizona</strong></p>

<p>              The defending Champs are pretty set on both sides of the ball, so they are basically drafting for depth. They need to start looking at getting younger along the o-line. Britton Is a massive OT, with very good skills. This to good of a value to pass up at this spot. They may also look at defensive depth as well.       <strong>          </strong></p>

09' Mock Draft (After 2 Weeks of Free Agency)

GOOD DRAFT,  I agree with most of your picks. The only thing that will mess it up will be trades. I still do not think the LIONS take STAFFORD with the 1st pick. Next year they will pick (probably) in the top 5, there will be 3 good QB's available to them. they need to draft the best OT J. Smith or E. Monroe, this will help protect there future QB.

Seattle or Jax, will pick STAFFORD if not the 49ers will, he will not fall any further then that.

You nailed OAKLANDS pick with MACLIN over CRABTREE they will draft speed.

Right on with DENVERS pick, they have needed a ILB since WILSONS injury.

Being a BEARS fan I hope that the team drafts a WR like DHB or NICKS, we need offensive help there. Some fans think we need help at defensive, and we do but, not with this pick. the best WR possible is the right pick. D.HESTER is a good special teams player, and is learning to play WR in the NFL. In the 2nd round go with secondary, there will be good corners/safeties available. In the 3rd round ar 4th round draft a ILB (J. BRINKLEY  S.C.). With the free agents we signed these picks are possible.

TAMPA BAY will probably trade up if STAFFORD is not the 1st pick, but they need to draft a QB. FREEMAN is possible here.

NEW YORK (N) I believe they need a WR with this pick, BRIT or ROBIESKI to replace PLAX.

YOUR CRAZY!!!! There is no way that DJ Moore goes before Harvin. I am a Vanderbilt  & Florida fan but Harvin will go probly between 17-20 and DJ will go in the 2nd round.

09' Mock Draft (After 2 Weeks of Free Agency)

Big problem: Chiefs won't take an OT.  They used one of their first rounders last year on a LT and spent a lot of money for Damien Macintosh a couple years ago to play RT, so they almost 100% will not take a lineman with their #3 pick.  Curry, Crabtree, a DE, or will trade for more picks.

Im pritty sure that Seattle is gonna take crabtree or at least they should. But if anything i dont think they are gonna draft a line backer as they allready have a young and deep core there .  I know you say the due to signing TJ they no longer have a need a WR but i think ur wrong i think TJ has maybe 2 more solid year left in him and is the perfect player to help Crabtree grow . By the time Crabtree hits his prime TJ's age will be catching up with him and the will have Michael ready to step in and take his place as thier go to guy.

09' Mock Draft (After 2 Weeks of Free Agency)

 Overall i like the top ten is pretty right on..maybe a trade will trade that come draft day.  However Crabtree i gotta believe won't fall to number eight.  Some one i guarantee trades up to the 4th 5th spot to take him.  I know that rarely ever happens to trade in the top five but i believe this year will be different.  Look who holds the 4 spot.  Seattle. GM Tim Ruskell is notorious for trading down to pick up extra picks in later rounds to find some gems. Plus Seattle doen't want to pay top five money.  Browns at number 5.  They have two quarterbacks i see a three team trade here with some coming up to take either A,) crabtree or B.) Currry - if he drops or maybe either C.) the niners, jets, bucs, or bears trade up to take Sanchez if they feel he might not be there later in the middle round.  Also lets see about Stafford, because if he doesn't go number one to the lions the whole top ten could take awhile to sort out and stafford will fall.  I'd hate to see him fall then someone pick Sanchez in front of him because they fell in love with him.

Also in this draft Philly is not gonna take Beanie wells.  they found westbrook late in the draft a home grown philly guy.  I see them taking a offensive linemen 1st round. then addressing running back later.

09' Mock Draft (After 2 Weeks of Free Agency)

These are mock coaches and mock analysts playing games as if they were important.  Mock drafts suck.....Let's wait until the real thing.  You are just wasting time and money.  Guess it gives wannabees something to do.

The titans do have a history of picking home town guys...  Haynesworth and the Wr from MTSU, Tyrone Calico, (he did kinda turn out to be a bust)  but i think you are on the right track...

Arizona Would probably take LeSean McCoy over Donald Brown but I like the thought of having either one as a Cards fan myself. Nice draft.
