1. Detroit- William Beatty(OT:UCONN)-
The Lions jump on the chance to draft their franchise tackle as well.
2. New England (from Kansas City)- Duke Robinson(OG:Oklahoma)-
3. St. Louis- Clay Matthews(OLB:USC)-
4. Cleveland- Larry English(OLB:Northern Illinois)-
With English available, the Browns will look to upgrade their linebacking corps even more.
5. Seattle- Donald Brown(RB:UCONN)-
6. Cincinnati- Robert Ayers(DE:Tennessee)-
The Bengals only had 17 sacks last season. Ayers should be able to increase that. He's also good against the run.
7. Jacksonville- Jamon Meredith(OT:South Carolina)-
8. Oakland- Hakeem Nicks(WR:UNC)-
The Raiders get the steal of the draft with the 40th pick. Twenty-nine teams are going to regret not drafting this kid. I see another Aquan Boldin. Not that I'm biased, or anything.
9. Green Bay- Jarron Gilbert(DE:San Jose State)-
The Pakers is hoping that Gilbert can start opposite Cullen Jenkins at defensive end.
10. Buffalo- Jared Cook(TE:South Carolina)-
11. San Francisco- Connor Barwin(OLB:Cincinnati)-
12. Miami(from Washington)- Ron Brace(DT:BC)-
With the difficulty of finding a good nose tackle, the Dolphins will try their luck with Brace.
13. New York Giants(from New Orleans)- Marcus Freeman(OLB:Ohio State)-
The linebacking corps of the Giants needs more help than just Michael Boley.
14. Houston- Patrick Chung(S:Oregon)-
The Texans have always been looking for a top-flight strong safety.
15. New England(from San Diego)- Clint Sintim(DE:Virginia)-
The Patriots hope that Sintim will be able to go inside, and play alongside Jerrod Mayo when Teddy Bruschi and Juniour Seau retire.
16. Denver- Eric Wood(C:Louisville)-
17. Chicago- Louis Delmas(S:Western Michigan)-
Danieal Manning isn't the answer at free safety.
18. Cleveland(from Tampa Bay)- Kenny Britt(WR:Rutgers)-
The Browns need Britt to keep defenses from double-teaming Braylon Edwards.
19. Dallas- William Moore(S:Mizzu)-
The Cowboys are hoping that Moore is the safety that Roy Williams was supposed to be.
20. New York Jets- Percy Harvin(WR:Florida)-
The Jets hope that Harvin can be the starter opposite Jericho Cotchery.
21. Philadelphia- Herman Johnson(OG:LSU)-
22. Minnesota- Phil Loadholt(OT:Oklahoma)-
Loadholt is just the type of tackle the Vikings like...massive.
23. Atlanta- Tyrone McKenzie(OLB:USF)-
The Falcons are looking to replace Michael Boley.
24. Miami- Juaquin Iglesias(WR:Oklahoma)-
The Dolphins are looking for for posession receiver to go along with Ted Ginn.
25. Baltimore- Darry Beckwith(MLB:LSU)-
26. New England- LeSean McCoy(RB:Pitt)-
Fred Taylor is only a short term answer. And McCoy is a real good value here.
27. Carolina- D.J. Mooore(CB:Vandy)-
Given that the Panthers have been shopping Ken Lucas around, one would think that his time in Carolina is limited. Moore's combine speed left much to be desired. However, he does possess a 39.5" vertical. He had 5 INT's, 4.5 TFL's and 6 PBU's. And made second team All-American. Now, before you Panther faithful bless me out for selecting Moore over Fili Moala or Sen'Derricks Marks, I wanted to make you aware that my intentions was to hopefully select Dorell Scott fom Clemson in the third. He's a monstrous defensive tackle who's said to be one of the hardest working players in this class.
28. New York Giants- Alphoso Smith(CB:Wake Forrest)-
29. Indianapolis- Brian Robiskie(WR:Ohio State)-
30. Tennessee-Kraig Urbick(OG:Wisconsin)-
The Titans choose to go for offensive line depth with this pick.
31. Arizona- Paul Kruger(DE:Utah)-
32. Pittsburgh- Sen'Derricks Marks(DE:Auburn)-
(It was brought to my attention that I had not used the most current draft order. Kansas City had traded their second to New England, and Tampa Bay had traded their second to Cleveland. I had started with an old template and forgot to change them.)
