Yahoo Sports says we get BERRY

This Yahoo mock is one of the more clueless, ill informed mocks I have ever seen.

Sure, I would love to land Berry, but I don't see him falling past #7..

Trent Willliams #2 to Detroit...
I have the wrong job....if people get paid to be morons...where do I sign up!!!
This is a Sporting News mock.
Looking at the Chiefs pick and knowing what the Pats did while Pioli was there I just don't see a CB coming off the board. The Pats/Pioli regime took 4th round corners and turned them into pro bowl players. I see McClain or Berry going to them at that pick and possibly an OT.

Look at their pick last year, Tyson Jackson DE.

1. St. Louis Rams: Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska DT
The Rams wish there was a surefire franchise QB in the draft, but there’s not, so they should grab the best player available in Suh, who would upgrade their defensive line from Day 1.

2. Detroit Lions: Trent Williams, Oklahoma OT
If the Lions do not find a way to protect Matthew Stafford(notes), then he will never get the chance to lead them. So they should grab the strong and aggressive Williams to shore up their left tackle situation.


3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma DT
The Bucs’ defense has not played up to its lofty standards in recent seasons, due largely to its lack of an elite tackle. McCoy has the talent to be special if he plays with intensity on every snap.


4. Washington Redskins: Russell Okung, Oklahoma State OT
Mike Shanahan sees a lot of Ryan Clady(notes) in the very athletic Okung, so he could jump at the chance to protect Jason Campbell’s(notes) blindside with him.


5. Kansas City Chiefs: Joe Haden, Florida CB
The Chiefs’ defense made strides in 2009, with Brandon Flowers(notes) looking like a keeper at one corner spot. Haden would give Kansas City two very good cornerbacks to anchor its secondary.


6. Seattle Seahawks: Bruce Campbell, Maryland OT
Without Walter Jones(notes) in 2009, the Seahawks’ offense really struggled. Campbell has the size and elite athleticism to become their left tackle for the next decade.


7. Cleveland Browns: Sam Bradford, Oklahoma QB
Mike Holmgren has not said anything positive about Brady Quinn(notes) or Derek Anderson(notes), which makes us believe he is not sold on either. Bradford’s accuracy, intelligence and athleticism seem ideal for Holmgren’s West Coast offense.


8. Oakland Raiders: Derrick Morgan, Georgia Tech DE
The Raiders might think long and hard about taking Jimmy Clausen, but if owner Al Davis is not ready to give up on JaMarcus Russell(notes), then they should grab Morgan, who would improve their defensive line immediately.


9. Buffalo Bills: Sergio Kindle, Texas DE
The Bills’ current defensive ends try hard but lack the explosiveness to be impact pass-rushers. Kindle brings the athleticism, explosiveness and passion that should upgrade Buffalo’s line.


10. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame QB
After a disappointing season from David Garrard(notes), the Jaguars know they need to upgrade their passing attack in order to have a playoff-caliber offense.


11. Denver Broncos (from Chicago): Corey Wootton, Northwestern DT/DE
Wootton is tall and very athletic. He played defensive tackle in college but would fit ideally as an end in the Broncos’ defensive scheme.


12. Miami Dolphins: Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State WR
If Chad Henne(notes) is going to succeed, he needs weapons, and Bryant has the size, athleticism and receiving skills to be a top-level receiver and big playmaker.

13. San Francisco 49ers: Eric Berry, Tennessee S/CB
The 49ers need to upgrade at cornerback, and while Berry played safety at Tennessee, we feel he is best suited to corner in the NFL. He should be able to challenge for a starting job as a rookie.[/b]

14. Seattle Seahawks (from Denver), C.J. Spiller, Clemson RB
RB Julius Jones(notes) is not the answer, and Justin Forsett(notes) is best suited for a third-down role. The Seahawks should jump at the chance to add Spiller, whose big-play ability as a runner, receiver and returner would add a dimension to their team.


15. New York Giants: Brandon Spikes, Florida ILB
MLB Antonio Pierce(notes) is nearing the end of his career, and Spikes has the size, strength, athleticism and instincts to be a good replacement.


16. Tennessee Titans: Carlos Dunlap, Florida DE
The Titans need youth at defensive end, and while Dunlap did not produce like a first-rounder, he is big and athletic. The Titans have a history of drafting such players early, even if they are not polished.

Who do the niners take at No. 17?
Guess it doesn"t take much to be a draft forecaster in some places, certainly not intelligence.
this would be a miracle if it happened! but then again last year was a miracle too.
The Sporting News War Room is a good place to check out players quickly, read their stats, but the mock jumps all over the place. Many early mocks had the 9ers drafting all defense...no OLmen. Now, most are starting to focus on needs.

They have the 9ers taking "Iupati" with the 17th pick.

Berry is listed in many drafts as a better CB than Safety, which makes me wonder...more athletic than position friendly? Don't know much about DBs, would it be likely he would play Safety in college if CB was his more natural position?

Quoting from the movie "Hangover" its not going to happen
Yahoo Sports might as well predict Suh will fall to us at 13

I'm the only one who likes Spikes over McClain.
Maybe Mays, but definitely not Berry.
This person obviously knows nothing about football, nor the draft.

First, the Lions are satisfied with Jeff Backus at LT, so they are not going OT. Second, the Lions are one of the worst NFL teams on defense, and they will go DT.

Next, this person has no doubt never seen KC play a game. Their safeties are ridiculously abominable, and if Berry slips past the Chiefs, then they are surely the stupidest team in the NFL.

Finally, there are so many teams that need an elite FS, that there is no way he falls that far. Just a boneheaded projection.

P.S. They have the Bills passing on a QB. Genius. I guess the guys think that the Bills are satisifed with Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starting QB in 2010. The franchise has seemingly given up on Trent Edwards from all indications.

No. No Mays!


Berry doesn't fall past Kansas City. All the way to 13 is ridiculous
