1. San Francisco -- Alex Smith, QB, Utah

How do the Niners pass up a Cal guy? Watch 'em. Smith is a tad better than Aaron Rodgers.

2. Miami -- Ronnie Brown, RB, Auburn

The speed, the moves. Good luck with the hippie lettuce, Ricky.

3. Cleveland -- Braylon Edwards, WR, Michigan

Will wrestle the ball away from anyone in traffic. Randy Moss had better check his blind spot.

4. Chicago -- Aaron Rodgers, QB, Cal

Rex Grossman, the honeymoon is over.

5. Tampa Bay -- Cadillac Williams, RB, Auburn

Have to get mean again to match Chuckie's scowl.

6. Tennessee -- Erasmus James, DE, Wisconsin

The new Kearse? James comes pre-packaged ready to sack.

7. Minnesota -- Derrick Johnson, LB, Texas

The temptation is to pick a receiver to replace Moss, but Johnson is a no-brainer, especially for that defense on turf.

8. Arizona -- Cedric Benson, RB, Texas

Benson's best attribute might be stamina. He stayed around long enough to pick up a lot of yards.

9. Washington -- Marcus Spears, DE, LSU

Can play inside or outside. Arrives at the quarterback with extreme prejudice.

10. Detroit -- Adam Jones, CB, West Virginia

Best defensive back in the draft might not fall this far.

11. Dallas -- Shawne Merriman, DE, Maryland

In the mold of smaller, quicker DEs.

12. San Diego -- Mike Williams, WR, USC

Bad advice from attorney last year. Great pick for the rising Chargers.

13. Houston -- Alex Barron, T, Florida State

The draft's best offensive lineman. Pencil him in for the next decade.

14. Carolina -- Heath Miller, TE Virginia

Sure-handed, not great speed. Could be a possession wideout too.

15. Kansas City -- Antrel Rolle, CB, Miami

Didn't like him the second half last year, but Chiefs desperately need defensive help.

16. New Orleans -- Jammal Brown, T, Oklahoma

Best dresser in the draft. OL isn't necessarily a need, but Brown is a rock.

17. Cincinnati -- Travis Johnson, DT, Florida State

Bengals could use help in the middle.

18. Minnesota -- Mark Clayton, WR, Oklahoma

OK, here's your receiver, Minny, although not one with much height.

19. St. Louis -- Bill Swancutt, DE, Oregon State

It's either going to be Swancutt or David Pollack for the Rams.

20. Dallas -- David Pollack, DE, Georgia

Great motor, great work ethic. Should prosper in Dallas.

21. Jacksonville -- Elton Brown, G, Virginia

Jags also could go tackle.

22. Baltimore -- Troy Williamson, WR, South Carolina

After Clayton, this is the best Baltimore can do.

23. Seattle -- Dan Cody, DE, Oklahoma

Doesn't take a play off. Impact player, right away.

24. Green Bay -- Channing Crowder, LB, Florida

Pack need best defensive player available.

25. Denver -- Shaun Cody, DT, USC

Can play inside or outside. It was a mismatch with him and Oklahoma.

26. N.Y. Jets -- Carlos Rodgers, CB, Auburn

A lock-up corner in an age when guile is valued more than physical presence.

27. Atlanta -- Khalif Barnes, OT, Washington

If Michael Vick gets some protection, he could be even better.

28. San Diego -- Brodney Pool, FS, Oklahoma

The league's No. 31 pass defense needs help now.

29. Indianapolis -- Daryl Blackstock, LB, Virginia

Blackstock helps round out a front seven that needs to get better for the Colts to contend for the Super Bowl.

30. Pittsburgh -- Demarcus Ware, LB/DE, Troy State

Value pick this low in the first round. Could became as good as any of the higher rated LBs or DEs.

31. Philadelphia -- Anttaj Hawthorne, DT, Wisconsin

It would have been nice to control the Patriots up the middle.

32. New England -- Corey Webster, CB, LSU

No more Troy Brown experiment. Webster was a receiver who converted to corner.

There are some crazy bastards doing mocks now and days. Tennessee taking James over Rolle, Johnson, and Merriman would have to be the stupidest pick of the draft.

Dallas taking TWO DEs? Hmmm...

04-15-2005, 12:03 PM
I can't see any way that the Bears give up on Grossman so soon. They have quite a few players rated higher than anyone else and hardly any teams looking a CB help.

i think Antrell Rolle ends up being a Free safety in the NFL myself

we need a Free safety too, so i guess that works.

for a cornerback, i prefer Carlos Rogers

See Laz, we take safeties and make them corners around here. Not vice versa.

That mock is a little outdated.

Seriously... Cowboy Nation will flip if they go 2 DEs. I see DE / CB if the right CB is there, or possibly FS since Woodson is no longer there.

I see DE at their first pick and if there's a strong WR like Clayton at 20, then he's a Cowboy.

And where the hell is Thomas Davis?

Wow. I just noticed that he has Brodney Pool going in the first, but not Davis.

not really...

other than a few pro day workouts, nothing much has happend in the last few weeks.

As much as I like Bill Swancutt, I don't see him going in the first.
