from Rivals.....

proof why Mocks should be deemed irrelevant..





1. Miami (1-15)
The Pick: Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
The buzz: The Dolphins need a tough, talented leader to get them back to the playoffs. Bill Parcells will not hesitate to select a player like Ryan, who has proven skills and the intangibles necessary to play the game's most important position.
2. St. Louis (3-13)
The Pick: Chris Long, DE, Virginia
The buzz: The Rams will focus on both lines early in the draft, and Long would give them an impact defender and the ability to have a flexible front line.
x - 3. Atlanta (4-12)
The Pick: Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
The buzz: The Falcons must totally rebuild on each side of the ball, and Dorsey could be the safest selection of the entire draft.
x - 4. Oakland (4-12)
The Pick: Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas*
The buzz: Al Davis rarely passes on a star-caliber prospect despite bigger needs in other areas..
x - 5. Kansas City (4-12)
The Pick: Jake Long, OT, Michigan
The buzz: The Chiefs' once-great offensive line has struggled in recent seasons. Long would be a fine addition for a revamped unit.
6. N.Y. Jets (4-12)
The Pick: Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC
The buzz: The Jets want to add a playmaker on their front line, and Ellis has been outstanding for USC.
7. New England (From San Francisco (5-11))
The Pick: Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio State*
The buzz: The Patriots are looking for a young impact defender to add to their aging linebacker unit.
8. Baltimore (5-11)
The Pick: Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
The buzz: The Ravens want one of the top two quarterbacks and may have to settle for Brohm at this spot.
9. Cincinnati (7-9)
The Pick: Kenny Phillips, FS, Miami*
The buzz: The Bengals defense gives up too many big passes, and Marvin Lewis needs a playmaker at free safety.
10. New Orleans (7-9)
The Pick: Keith Rivers, LB, USC
The buzz: The Saints defense is not at a playoff-caliber level, and Rivers would quickly help revamp this struggling unit.
11. Buffalo (7-9)
The Pick: Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma*
The buzz: The Bills wants to find a playmaker opposite Lee Evans so their young passers will have more than one option.
12. Denver (7-9)
The Pick: Reggie Smith, CB, Oklahoma*
The buzz: The Broncos secondary lacks talent and depth. Denver needs to address this unit early and often this April.
13. Carolina (7-9)
The Pick: Ryan Clady, OT, Boise St.*
The buzz: The Panthers offensive line would benefit from a top-flight tackle, especially on the left side.
14. Chicago (7-9)
The Pick: Calais Campbell, DE, Miami*
The buzz: The Bears are looking for help on both lines, though their free agency moves will dictate early draft selections.
15. Detroit (7-9)
The Pick: Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College
The buzz: The Lions must improve their pass protection in order to be considered legitimate playoff contenders.
16. Arizona (8-8)
The Pick: Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas*
The buzz: The Cardinals secondary needs another top cover man. Talib has the versatility to help in other areas as well.
17. Minnesota (8-8)
The Pick: DeSean Jackson, WR, California*
The buzz: The Vikings are looking for playmakers at wideout and in the return game, and Jackson could possibly fill both roles.
18. Houston (8-8)
The Pick: Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois*
The buzz: The Texans are looking to add a young feature back to give some balance to this offensive unit.
19. Philadelphia (8-8)
The Pick: Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida*
The buzz: The Eagles want pass rushers to solidify their front seven on defense. Harvey has proven effective against top-flight competition in the Southeastern Conference.
20. Tampa Bay (9-7)
The Pick: Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
The buzz: The Buccaneers are looking to rebuild a playoff-caliber defense, especially at cornerback.
21. Washington (9-7)
The Pick: Quentin Groves, DE, Auburn
The buzz: The Redskins are hoping to draft into the strong defensive end class to find an impact pass rusher for their front four.
22. Dallas (from Cleveland (10-6))
The Pick: Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida
The buzz: The Cowboys have big problems at receiver and cornerback that could be addressed with two first-round selections.
23. Pittsburgh (10-6)
The Pick: Jeff Otah, OT, Pittsburgh
The buzz: The Steelers will address their offensive line in this draft, and Otah is a tackle who carries a first-round grade.
24. Tennessee (10-6)
The Pick: Lawrence Jackson, DE, Southern Cal
The buzz: The Titans could face big defensive line losses in free agency. That makes this position a top priority in the draft.
25. Seattle (10-6)
The Pick: Jonathan Stewart, RB, Oregon*
The buzz: The Seahawks are searching for a young feature back because Shaun Alexander's production has slipped over recent seasons.
26. Jacksonville (11-5)
The Pick: Andre' Woodson, QB, Kentucky
The buzz: The Jaguars are looking to the future at this position, and they like a few prospects in this draft class.
27. San Diego (11-5)
The Pick: Kentwan Balmer, DT, North Carolina
The buzz: The Chargers could surprise here with a fast-rising prospect that fits well into their front three
28. Dallas (13-3)
The Pick: Mario Manningham, WR, Michigan*
The buzz: The Cowboys' receiving corps is thin and aging, and this position should be addressed early this April - possibly with more than one prospect.
29. San Francisco (From Indianapolis (13-3))
The Pick: James Hardy, WR, Indiana*
The buzz: The 49ers have neglected their weak receiving corps long enough. San Francisco needs another playmaker to help Alex Smith realize his potential.
30. Green Bay (13-3)
The Pick: Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas*
The buzz: The Packers will look to address their backfield early in this deep class. Jones would give them an impact weapon in several roles.
31. New England (16-0)
The Pick: Pick forfeited.
The Buzz: No first-round pick because of NFL sanctions following "Spygate" controversy.
32. NY Giants (10-6)
The Pick: Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy State
The buzz: The Big Blue defense is in search of another top-flight cover man opposite last year's top pick, Aaron Ross. McKelvin is also a dangerous return man.

***?

and what's with Jacksonville taking a QB especially after the way David Gerard played this season?

Oh and didn't the Jets go to a 3-4? If so, why would they take Sedrick Ellis?

Reggie Smith also plays free safety and returns kicks.....not as far fetched as yall think~

Maybe a reach at 12 but trade down to late teens or early twenties and he would be a great pick up.

We can pick up returners later, we need a franchise RB more.

Exactly. I think Reggie Smith could be a great FS for us. He's probably better in coverage and more of a ball hawk than Kenny Phillips.

So Leodis McKelvin and Mike Jenkins, will still be on the board, and we're going to pass on them, in a try to address a need I don't think we have.

If this actually happens, I will believe this guy for ever!!!!.

Why do we need a 1st round corner?

Reggie Smith would play FS if Denver drafts him. Until this season, that's what he played at OU. So he has the experience and the switch back wouldn't be too difficult.

Alright I'll buy you that one, but, our FS will also return kick? you don't see that too often.

I like more the physical FSs like Lynch, or real ballhawks like Atari Bigby.

lol at Atari Bigby being a ballhawk, that guy got beat like a rented mule this season.

But Reggie Smith is a really good cover guy. He played really well as their #1 corner this season. He can lay the wood too. I consider him and Phillips 1 and 1a. That's how highly I think of him.

Well, maybe but he's always around the ball, in the playoffs he was great.

And, so what!?, Bailey also get beaten sometimes, and not because of those rare times, he's bad.

I doubt Cincy will take Phillips if the No.1 ranked corner is still there. Even if they do we would probably take Ryan Clady if he is still there. Reggie Smith would not be taken before Jenkins, McKelvin, Tali, and Cason anyway. He'll probably be taken in the second hopefully by us if we don't take Phillips. I think this guy is a great cover safety and will give us something we haven't had at that position for awhile. Most teams will probably look at him as a corner since that is what he played last year while more experienced coaches like Belichick, Shannahan, and Fisher will look at all his gametape and determine what he is best fitted for.

I just mentioned those three coaches because they came off he top of my head.

I hope we just draft Ryan Clady, he worths the pick, we need a left tackle to help J and O-line seems to be always a safe pick.

Yep...look at George Foster! :confused: Wait, what about Orlanda Pace, wait he was good but mediocre often as well and who was that guy in Oakland? ;)

There is no safe pick or guarantee...fact is that we just need to take a player of value with our picks who the front office believes will better us, if not now in a year at the most.

So many of our picks become backups for us or take longer to produce, but once in awhile we get lucky with a Marshall, Davis, Dumervil and so on, but our draft to production rate is horrendous...

the difference is the Packers had a passrush this season, the Broncos didn't.

Smith is a guy I was saying could be that "*** MIKE" pick everyone seems to be worrying about. The guy has tremendous range, cover skills ad shows support in the running game. He's a tad undersized, but I think he'd make an excellent FS for us, but obviously he's seen some extensive time at corner. I'd definitely take him if we traded down, but not at #15. Nice pedigree at his school as well for DB's, so you kind of know what to expect.

However, just throw me a Quentin Demps (who I believe will fall or go lower than people think) on Day 2 and address other needs first.

There isn't a word in the English Dictionary that would describe Atari Bigby's play this season.

But I bet ya I could find quite a few words in the English Language that would appropriately describe his play..

:cheers:

I would not mind Demps either, I like Griffin and Adams, but Demps will be a solid pro...UTEP has some good prospects in the draft this year.

I'd like Demps.. if he falls. If we have to use a first day pick on him, there are other safety's on day 2. Other things need to come first.:cheers: (DT, RB, KR/PR)

If Denver's going to draft defense, f--- the secondary.

Everyone knows championships are built around the front 7.

If Shanahan drafts a secondary player with the first pick, I will deem him completely clueless on the defensive side of the ball. As if he isn't almost there already.
