Hey guys, so my last mock draft included quite a few trades because I just couldn't make up my mind on who I wanted the niners to pick, I believe my current one is a bit more realistic in that respect, and I would welcome any feedback regarding it.
1. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
The rams need a franchise QB, and they can't afford to pass on a guy with the rare accuracy of Bradford
2. Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
It's kind of a tossup between the 2 elite DTs and you can't go wrong either way, I just feel that McCoy will get the edge due to his abundance of brute force.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
The Bucs will be more than happy to take whichever DT the Lions don't.
4. Washington Redskins: Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
With Bradford gone, the Redskins get the best LT in the draft to protect whoever will be their signal caller.
5. Kansas City Chiefs: Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
Although safeties aren't normally taken this high, the Chiefs need help in the secondary, and he's the BPA at this point.
6. Seattle Seahawks: C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson
Seattle will get nervous about someone else taking away Spiller since they need help badly at the RB position. I don't think they wait to get Spiller, and pull the trigger on their guy.
7. Cleveland Browns: Joe Haden, CB, Florida
Haden proved in his pro day that he is the best corner in this draft, and the Browns, who need help basically everywhere, will be more than happy to take the top CB.
8. Oakland Raiders: Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
Some have indicated Campbell here, but I believe even Al Davis is smart enough to realize that this is probably Russell's last chance to prove himself, and he will get the best technician OT in the draft to help him immediately rather than waiting a year or so for Campbell to develop.
9. Buffalo Bills: Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
The Bills need a QB, and even though I'm not a big fan of Clausen, I think with this year's slim QB class, the Bills will be forced to reach for Clausen as there is a big drop in the talent level of the QBs after Bradford and Clausen.
10. Jacksonville Jaguars: Earl Thomas, FS, Texas
The Jags have already signed Kampman, otherwise I would have them with Morgan here, and their next biggest weakness, with both the top 2 QB gone, is the secondary. They would've been happy with either Haden or Thomas, who should have an immediate impact.
11. Denver Broncos: Dan Williams, DT Tennessee
It seems more and more likely that the Broncos will not trade Brandon Marshall, so in anticipation of that they take the best NT in the draft and immediately shore up their DL.
12. Miami Dolphins: Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
Miami's receiving corps is in desperate need of a jolt, and Bryant should provide exactly that. I don't think he slips past Miami because of bad press, due to: 1.) that Crabtree came in last year and such a great impact and 2.) Bryant is physically the best receiver to come out since Calvin Johnson.
13. San Francisco 49ers: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
Singletary was chomping at the bit to get Oher last year, and it was only due to the unlikely fall of Crabtree that we got denied. There's no way that Sing is denied again, and they will take the best remaining tackle on the board with Trent Williams, which gives them a sure-fire RT, who has an off-chance of becoming an LT in the future.
14. Seattle Seahawks: Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
The Seahawks had 2 primary needs in RB and OT, and they will be more than happy to take the gifted, but troubled Davis, with the hope that the great O-line coach Gibbs can get him to preform at an elite level.
15. New York Giants: Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama
The Giants' biggest need comes at ILB, and they will be pinching themselves that the best ILB in the draft has fallen to them.
16. Tennessee Titans: Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
The Titans need help in their DL, and they will take Morgan due to his proven track record, high motor and work ethic as a great value pick at 16.
17. San Francisco 49ers: Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
With the OT position set, the top 3 DB already taken, the niners will treat this as a luxury pick and take the BPA, which has to be Pierre-Paul. The more I see of this guy, the more I feel that he has the potential to be a top-5 talent. He's raw, but has not had any attitude problems or anything. The only reason he drops is because there isn't that much tape on him since he went to a JC for 2 years. However, the niners have been looking for a dynamic pass rusher for years, and this guy could very well fit the bill.
Anyways, comments are appreciated, so let me hear it!
