OK all we all have seen tons of mock drafts for this years NFL draft.  I am providing my first round mock draft that will follow with at least three to four more before draft day going to a two round then finishing with a three round mock draft. Let's here what you guys think?

#1. Dolphins - (DT) Glenn Dorsey (LSU) - Bill Parcell will try to shop the #1 overall pick to add additional picks to help jump start the Dolphins organization if unsuccessful I see Miami going with Dorsey over Chris Long reson being Dorsey seems to be the most dominating DT to enter the draft since "Big Daddy" Dan Wilkenson. Dorsey is a great fit if Miami goes to a 3-4 defense at NT but also will be dangerous in a 4-3 defensive scheme.

#2. Rams- (OT) Jake Long (Michigan) - If the Rams plan to protect Marc Bulger and provide a dominate run  blocker for Stephen Jackson the Long is there man. Rams need Long in a desperate way and this makes the best sense to me.

#3. Falcons - (RB) Darren McFadden (Arkansas) - Yeah Atlanta needs a QB but McFadden is too good to pass up. He alone could help refill the Georgia Dome and move forward from the Michael Vick mess.

#4. Raiders - (DT) Sedrick Ellis (USC) - Ellis stock is soaring after dominating the Senior Bowl. A great pick up for Oakland who land the next Warren Sapp if not better.

#5. Chiefs - (DE) Chris Long (Virginia) - Long is a stud who many scouts think could be even better then his Hall of Fame father Howie Long which says a tons. With Jarred Allen most likely leaving by free agency Long is a smart and safe pick if he still on the board.

#6. Jets - (QB) Matt Ryan (Boston College) - The Jets need a QB in a very bad way and Ryan reminds me a lot of Carson Palmer when he came out of college. I expect Ryan to be a very good NFL QB within two or three years.

#7. Patriots - (CB) Ledois McKelvin (Troy State) - New England may be losing two of their man three CB's this year because of free agency so McKelvin would be a smart selection. Ledois stock is on the move and I expect him to be a top 10 selcection come this April.

#8. Ravens - (OT) Ryan Cady (Boise State) - Plan and simple the Ravens need help at OT in a huge way and Cady has all the tools to develop into a dominate RT in the NFL with his amazing quick feet and upper body strength.

#9. Bengals - (LB) Dan Connor (Penn State) - This is the kind of player the Bengals need a hard noise football player that all he does is make plays and comes with no baggage. Connor is sure to help fix the Bengals poor defense as a rookie.

#10. Saints - (DB) Reggie Smith (Oklahoma) - New Orleans needs help in their secondary period and Smith is a good corner and also a heck of a FS which will help the Saints fix up their current poor secondary by placing Smith at corner or FS.

#11. Bills - (LB) Keith Rivers (USC)

#12. Broncos - (DE) Vernon Gholston (Ohio State)

#13. Panthers - (QB) Brian Brohm (Louisville)

#14. Bears - (WR) DeSean Jackson (Cal)

#15. Lions - (CB) Mike Jenkins (South Florida)

#16. Cardinals - (RB) Jonathan Stewart (Oregon)

#17. Vikings - (DE) Derrick Harvey (Florida)

#18. Texans - (RB) Rashard Mendenhall (Illinois)

#19. Eagles - (WR) Limas Sweed (Texas)

#20. Buccaneers - (OT) Sam Baker (USC)

#21. Redskins - (DE) Calasis Campbell (Miami)

#22. Cowboys - (WR) Malcom Kelly (Oklahoma)

#23. Steelers - (OT) Jeff Otah (Pitt)

#24. Titans - (WR) Mario Manningham (Michigan)

#25. Seahawks - (RB) Jamaal Charles (Texas)

#26. Jaguars - (DE) Phillip Merling (Clemson)

#27. Chargers - (DT) Kentwan Balmer (North Carolina)

#28. Cowboys - (CB) Aqib Talib (Kansas)

#29. 49ers - (OT) Gosder Cherilus (Boston College)

#30. Packers - (CB) Antoine Cason (Arizona)

#31. Giants - (CB) Tracy Porter (Indiana)

#32. Patriots - ***FOREFIT***

With Berrian being a free agent and the QB position being unsettled there is a chance he leaves Chicago. Plus the Bears also need another explosive playmaker on offense so I figured this wouldn't be that bad of a selection since they can get a solid QB in the second round like a Henne or a Flacco. The Bears do need OL help but if it's not Clady then the rest of the OT's are a crap shoot with tons of potential stars but it's all potential Jackson has better upside then those OL still on the draft board. Thanks for reading!

Pretty good Mock Draft, I can't say I agree with you Bears pick though, wide receiver is the last position they will look at. But overall I like most of your picks.

Nicley done. I only disagree with a few things. I think the Pats take Keith Rivers and give the kid a year to learn from some of the best LB minds we have in the game today.

I dont think Leodis McLevin goes that high. And where was Kenny Phillips? The kid is the top S in the draft and is a stud.

It's Ryan Clady isn't it?? Next time you do a Mock Draft make sure you do your research if you want to look professional!

I would have to say that if the Raiders get a shot at Chris Long they won't blink an eye! He would fill seats immediately and sell a ton of Jersey's!

Being a Raiders fan, I hope that the coin flip goes the Raider's way and they pick up D Mac, however, knowing Al Davis, he'll draft Chris Long if he gets the chance due to the Raiders bloodline with Howie...

Picking Long over McFadden may be the last smart thing ole al does!!!

Either way that it goes I feel bad for whomever they take as anyone who enters into that organization at this point is doomed until Al steps aside.

That's exactly how I feel about the Falcons and McFadden. With so many strong QB's in this years draft class the Falcons can land a player like (Chad Henne, Joe Flacco or Andre Woodson) at QB in the second round because they have two picks in the 2nd round. McFadden is star power is needed to fill seats in Atlanta and also will be the new face of the organization. I have the Falcons picking Woodson in the second round but still working on my 2nd and 3rd round mock drafts rounds.

Thanks for reading...

Nicely done.  I especially like the McFadden selection for Atlanta.  There is still opportunity to grab a decent QB in the second round, and having McFadden could potentially have an immediate impact.  Henne will likely be available, and the way he came around in the Capital One Bowl and his performance Senior Bowl, he's likely moved up the list quite a bit and might be a good selection.  That is but one option they'll have.
