I don't think I've ever made a mock draft thread, mostly because I don't like predicting what will go down when trades are so unpredictable, but I've been more into this years draft than ever before so I gotta do it.
So my first step is in determining who I'm 99.9% sure will go top 12
in no order: Sam Bradford, Gerald McCoy, Ndamukong Suh, Eric Berry, CJ Spiller, Russell Okung, Jimmy Clausen - this makes 7
The next guys I'm 75% on - Trent Williams, Bryan Bulaga, Derrick Morgan - this makes 3
60% - Dez Bryant, JPP, Dan Williams, Joe Haden, Anthony Davis, Bruce Campbell (Only because of the Raiders) - adds up to total of 16
here we go!
1. Rams - Sam Bradford QB
2. Lions - Ndamukong Suh DT
Some of you think Okung is the pick here, and while it does make a lot of sense I just don’t see them passing on Suh
3. Buccaneers - Gerald McCoy DT
4. Redskins - Russell Okung OT
5. Chiefs - Bryan Bulaga OT
This might not make sense to a lot of us, but the Chiefs demonstrated last year that they don’t care about shocking us, or pissing off their fan base when they selected Jackson. I’m really tempted to have Berry go here but Pioli doesn’t seem to like taking safeties this early - we’ll just have to see.
6. Seahawks - Trent Williams OT
Again, I would select Berry here but don’t think the Seahawks pull the trigger.
7. Browns - Eric Berry S
Whether the Browns pick him or not, I don’t see Berry falling out of the top 10. I think the Browns will trade up or down from here.
8. Raiders - Jason Pierre Paul DE
Al Davis gets his workout warrior, we are no longer surprised.
9. Bills - Jimmy Clausen QB
10. Jaguars - CJ Spiller RB
Jaguars want to sell tickets, Spiller is a “sexy pick” that will generate excitement and help out their offense.
11. Broncos - Dez Bryant WR
One of the hardest picks for me to predict because they can go in a lot of directions. But I don’t think I’m wrong in projecting Bryant in the top 15.
12. Dolphins - Dan Williams NT
13. 49ers - Joe Haden CB
I’m not as convinced as some of you that our cb depth is fine. I think the 49ers would definitely choose Haden in this situation.
14. Seahawks - Earl Thomas S
Their secondary is poopoo, Thomas helps out whether they keep him at safety or move him to corner.
15. Giants - Rolando McClain LB
16. Titans - Brandon Graham DE/OLB
this pick gives me a sad
17. 49ers - Charles Brown OT
