  • ESPN Mock Draft 26APR07

    I thought I would try to keep track of the ESPN mock draft they are running with today and we could comment on the picks. Len Pasquarelli and John Clayton will be making all of the first-round picks - which I personally like better than McShay and Kiper. I'll try to post the pick and some of their comments (under the PICK # - NAME post). Hopefully this will generate some cool what-if scenarios.

    Ok here we go:

    1(1) Oakland Raiders- JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU
    2(2) Detroit Lions - Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech
    3(3) Cleveland Browns - Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma
    4(4) Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Joe Thomas, OT, Wisconsin
    5(5) Arizona Cardinals - Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas
    6(6) Washington Redskins - Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville
    7(7) Minnesota Vikings- Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame
    8(8) Atlanta Falcons - LaRon Landry, S, LSU
    9(9) Miami Dolphins - Levi Brown, OT, Penn State
    10(10) Houston Texans - Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson
    11(11) San Francisco 49ers - Patrick Willis, LB, Mississippi
    12(12) Buffalo Bills - Leon Hall, CB, Michigan
    13(13) St. Louis Rams - Darrelle Revis, CB, Pittsburgh
    14(14) Carolina Panthers - Reggie Nelson, S, Florida
    15(15) Pittsburgh Steelers - Adam Carriker, DE, Nebraska
    16(16) Green Bay Packers - Marshawn Lynch, RB, Cal
    17(17) Jacksonville Jaguars - Aaron Ross, CB, Texas
    18(18) Cincinnati Bengals - Jon Beason, LB, Miami
    19(19) Tennessee Titans - Robert Meachem, WR, Tennessee
    20(20) New York Giants - Lawrence Timmons, LB, Florida State
    21(21) Denver Broncos - Alan Branch, DT, Michigan
    22(22) Dallas Cowboys - Ted Ginn Jr., WR, Ohio State
    23(23) Kansas City Chiefs - Joe Staley, LT, Central Michigan
    24(24) New England Patriots - Michael Griffin, S, Texas
    25(25) New York Jets - Greg Olsen, TE, Miami
    26(26) Philadelphia Eagles - Brandon Meriweather, S, Miami
    27(27) New Orleans Saints - Dwayne Bowe, WR, LSU
    28(28) New England Patriots - David Harris, LB, Michigan
    29(29) Baltimore Ravens - Arron Sears, OG, Tennessee
    30(30) San Diego Chargers - Steve Smith, WR, USC
    31(31) Chicago Bears - Jarvis Moss, DE/LB, Florida
    32(32) Indianapolis Colts - Justin Harrell, DT, Tennessee

    PICK 1: J, Russell

    With no other quarterback solution available through a trade or free agency, Al Davis has no choice but to take Russell, the strong armed quarterback from LSU. Davis would love to take Georgia Tech wide receiver Calvin Johnson, but he has admitted that he made a mistake by skipping on a quarterback last year. Barring a last minute Daunte Culpepper trade, Russell is their guy.

      PICK 2: C. Johnson

      The Lions want to trade down to take defensive end Gaines Adams or linebacker Patrick Willis, but they have to get the right value. If they can't get what they want from the Bucs, who want to move up for Johnson, they can take Johnson and still spend time trying to trade him or just decide to keep him. It makes sense. What's wrong with keeping the best player in the draft if you can't get the right value? He may be a Lion for 30 minutes until the Bucs make the right trade offer or he might be a Lion at the end of the day.

        PICK 3: A. Peterson

        With no mandate by owner Randy Lerner to take quarterback Brady Quinn, general manager Phil Savage has his choice of either Peterson or left tackle Joe Thomas. Peterson is a rare running back who could help Romeo Crennel through a September in which the Browns have three AFC North home games.

          I don't know about you guys but I don't think AP will go this high up with the latest injury buzz unless it's completely fictional.

            PICK 4: J. Thomas

            The Bucs might work out a deal with the Lions to move up to No. 2, but they would be happy if Thomas falls to them at No. 4. He would be their most talented left tackle since Paul Gruber. If the Browns take Thomas, expect the Bucs to get on the phone and intensify trade discussions with the Lions to get Calvin Johnson. The cost is a swap of firsts and maybe a second- and a third-rounder. Offering cornerback Brian Kelly could replace one of the draft choices.

              PICK 5: J. Anderson

              Wouldn't mind trading back a bit and taking Penn State tackle Levi Brown, although the position isn't as big a need as it was at the start of the offseason. Gaines Adams is a possibility, but the Cards want to mix in some 3-4 and Anderson is a little bigger end.

                this would be a definite curve ball in the draft based on 100% of peoples mock drafts - perhaps Anderson is not slipping as much as everyone believes.

                  Quinn, Landry, Willis, Adams, Brown, Okoye still available...

                    PICK 6: Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville

                    Could move up or down, and Adams will be tempting here, as will safety LaRon Landry. But Okoye will give them an inside presence they haven't had in a long time. Also hearing that LaRon Landry could be the pick here.

                      PIKC 7: Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame

                      Another team that could take Adams, because the Vikings definitely need a pass rusher. If Peterson somehow falls this far, they snatch him. But Quinn solves the quarterback problem.

                        Should be interesting to see who drops to 10 - could we possibly see Adams? Would you trade up to 10 to get him if he was there? Houston already has Magical Mario....

                          Yup, if Thomas is gone look for the Cards to MOVE DOWN!!!!

                          He is priority #1 for Arizona and if he is off the board @ 5 - the Cards will move back and possibly get Levi Brown....

                          If Thomas is available @ 5 and the Cards screw that up and trade out of the pick
                          I owe CP's to: no one

                            My guess is that ATL will take Landry leaving Adams, Brown or Willis at 10....

                              Under this scenario, ARZ could be a good trade target for us if we really want Okoye.
