First Mock Draft, Enjoy!
|Pick||Team||Player Selected||Player’s Position||Player’s School||Analysis|
|1.||Ndamukong Suh||Defensive Tackle||Nebraska||
The Rams added the likes of Adam Carriker and Chris Long along the defensive line in recent years. By adding Suh, the best player in the draft, St. Louis adds quality depth to their d-line and Carriker could bump out to left end.
|2.||Russell Okung||Offensive Tackle||Oklahoma State||The Lions will be tempted to take Gerald McCoy, the stud defensive tackle out of Oklahoma, but Okung is the best pure Left Tackle in the draft and also a position of need for the Lions. My bet is Okung, who will help keep Matthew Stafford upright.|
|3.||Gerald McCoy||Defensive Tackle||Oklahoma||Gerald McCoy is yet another difference maker in this draft class. He would bring star power to the Bucs defensive line. McCoy is well-rounded and would improve the Bucs rush defense as well as create pressure up the middle.
|4.||Sam Bradford||Quarterback||Oklahoma||The only thing keeping Jason Campbell in Washington is the CBA, un-capped year issue. Shanahan will fall in love with Bradford’s accuracy. Unless Okung is still on the board, Bradford is the likely pick here.|
|5.||Eric Berry||Safety||Tennessee||Berry has drawn many comparisons to Ravens safety Ed Reed. He is a ballhawk who is not afraid of contact. Offensive tackle is also a big need, so Anthony Davis or Bryan Bulaga could also be the pick here.|
|6.||Derrick Morgan||Defensive End||Georgia Tech||Seattle has one of the worst pass rushes in the entire league and Derrick Morgan is a dynamic pass rusher who could help turn around the Seahawks D. Quarterback is also a possibility, but Pete Carroll is a defensive coach.|
||Joe Haden is the only premier corner in this draft. Haden will boost the Browns secondary and help start the defensive turnaround. This team still has a long way to go in order to become contenders again, but Haden is a step in the right direction.|
|8.||Anthony Davis||Offensive Tackle||Rutgers||A quick riser up draft boards, Davis is expected to impress at the combine, and you know, Al Davis loves those combine champions.|
|9.||Jimmy Clausen||Quarterback||Notre Dame||The Bills sit tight and grab their quarterback of the future and the now. Edwards is not the answer, and glaring offesnive line issues will be addressed later in the draft.|
|Dez Bryant||Wide Receiver||Oklahoma State||All signs point to Brandon Marshall being traded this offseason which would leave Denver with a big hole to fill at wide receiver. Dez Bryant has drawn comparisons to Terrell Owens — like Marshall. Bryant is the best receiver in this class and he would be a perfect fit to replace Marshall. Eddie Royal also compliments Bryant extremely well.|
|11.||Jason Pierre-Paul||Defensive End||South Florida
||Rumor after rumor points to Tebow winding up in Jacksonville. The team needs to find any possible way to put fans in the seats or else the team could end up in Los Angeles or London. That move proves to be too risky in the top-half of round one, so Jacksonville looks to defensive line and selects JPP, who is a raw, pass-rushing specialist.|
|12.||Rolando McClain||Linebacker||Alabama||McClain is an athletic specimen with superior instincts, he immediately helps this linebacking core; Parcells will love adding a player like McClain to bolster the Dolphins defense.|
|13.||Sergio Kindle||Outside Linebacker||Texas||Kindle is a hybrid DE/OLB, and will help bolster this up and coming defense led by Patrick Willis.|
|14.||(DEN)||Bryan Bulaga||Offensive Tackle||Iowa||Bulaga is an atheltic lineman who will immediately start for the Seahawks.|
|15.||Dan Williams||Defensive Tackle||Tennessee||The G-men are in a good spot here and I will not be surprised that they do not trade down for extra picks in what is shaping up to be a very deep draft. For now, Jerry Reese falls in love with fast rising Dan Williams, who is a force against the rush and has the ability to collapse the pocket on passing downs.|
||Offensive Tackle||Oklahoma||Williams is an experienced tackle who is light on his feet and very instinctive. He immediately comes in and fortifies the Niners front.|
