1.1
CB Marcus Brown
For the second straight years, a CB has all the hype going into the draft. With all the recent transactions, it looks like the Seahawks will be picking cornerback Marcus Brown.
1.2
MLB Harry Battle
The 49ers are thin on linebackers. Battle has all the tools, and this pick allows Lawson to move back to his more familiar OLB spot.
1.3
WR Jordan Kent
John Beck need a defined number go to receiver. GM Jason seems to like to talent of the tall speedy WR Kent. Ketn and Simpson will be a good duo for the future.
1.4
DT Walter Thomas
With another top 5 picks that they acquired shortly before the draft, this allows them to defer the pick of Walter Thomas. They are picking him. Period.
1.5
WR Jeff Samardzija
Big Jeff confirmed his talents at the all-star game. The Rams seems wanting to pick another wide out. Samardzija or Figurs, either one will be fine.
1.6
CB John Bowie
Giants will pick up what Dolphins will pick in the last mock. A 3rd corner is needed for a successful team. John Bowie will be a good nickel and a future replacement for Carroll.
1.7
WR Yamon Figurs
The Browns want a speedy wide out and they will get one with all-world speed. They preferred Kent, but Figurs will also be a good complement to Bowe.
1.8
ROLB Eric Bakhtiari
The Bears do not have an immediate needs. And without Battle on the board, Bakhtiari is an alternative and will be a great all around linebacker with some training on speed.
1.9
ROLB Antwan Barnes
The Buccaneers need some immediate help at linebacker group. Barnes will provide some speed that they are desperately searching for.
1.10
DT Albert Means
With youth all over the place, the Patriots will just get anyone in positions they don't have youth. Means provides toughness that they are searching on that defensive line.
1.11
CB Kyle Arrington
The Titans lost Pacman Jones, they will fill the hole with a similar talent corner.
1.12
LOLB Jon Corto
The Chiefs will prefer a corner, but they can also look at a 3-4 OLB. corto has the speed to come off the edge.
1.13
CB Will Billingsley
They need someone to stop the big play and you can do it by picking a fast corner. Will Billingsley maybe a reach here but he is decent all around.
1.14
MLB William Kershaw
The Broncos need help at linebacker. Williams Kershaw is a similar type of player like Eric Bakhtiari drafted earlier.
1.15
HB Lynell Hamilton
Assume the Vikings still want the two back system, Hamilton is a big back with solid skills set as a rookie. He is not Johnnie Vance, but lets keep that in mind.
1.16
MLB Jon Bank
They need a replacement for Wimbley and Jon Bank has great speed and can move out to play OLB.
1.17
LE Rudolph Hardie
The Panthers need some outside help on the defensive line or linebacker group. Hardie has solid athleticism and strength to be able to contribute.
1.18
RT Thaddeus Coleman
The Vikings like athletic lineman, but Coleman isn't bad at all with the strength he has.
1.19
MLB Vince Redd
Redd isn't impressed in any area, but he is very well rounded and his big body makes him a great RZL prospect with some camp help.
1.20
FS David Roach
The Saints move back and will still get their safety help. Roach is a more ready made player for RZL, but they can also go with raw talent Darrick Brown.
1.21
RG Mike Brisiel
The Falcons can't address their need with the 4th ovreall pick and made a good move dropping back. They will get their 3rd athletic lineman in this offseason.
1.22
LT John Helsabeck
They may want a tackle and Helsabeck shows his stuff at the all-star game.
1.23
DT Lorenzo Alexander
Tough to be not in position to pick an area of needs, but with a speedy DE early, they can draft a DT with good strength and solid athleticism to turn to a 4-3 scheme.
1.24
QB Tyler Thigpen
The Patriots past up on Joe Flacco last year and Aaron Rodgers does not quite workout. A younger quarterback with more upsides maybe a good choice.
1.25
LOLB Jamar Enzor
Enzor maybe a reach here, but with great first step and tackling ability, he may worth a chance. His speed can imrpove through intense training camp drill.
1.26
MLB Kenwin Cummings
The Cardinals seems to not too worry about a WR, they will take a big strong MLB here in Kenwin Cummings which GM Tyler Richardson stats as a need.
1.27
QB Matt Moore
Texans GM Ricky Lung likes Matt Moore way before the draft. They will likely become the new chapter with their first ever capable franchise quarterback.
1.28
QB Anthony Morelli
They need a quarterback. Frye can be great, but it doesn't look like Green Bay is the place. Morelli has the strongest arm of the class and give them a true quarterback.
1.29
CB Josh Bell
The Eagles need someone to be responsible for the deep coverage duty. Josh Bell has a solid skill set to work with and should be a decent pick if not great.
1.30
FS Darrick Brown
Mr. Scurr loves physical talents, Brown has every bit of a perfect make up of a gifted safety. The question is where he can learn the game fast enough.
1.31
FS Craig Dahl
With SS Gibril Wilson aging, they may need to look for someone to replace him in the future. Dahl has a pretty good package.
1.32
HB Gannon Beck
Greg Scurr loves big running back. Gannon back has a decent body and a strong push. Good replacement for TJ Duckett.
