Love it or Hate it - Mock Draft

Mock draft competition! I will not looooose! This is my expert opinion on how things will play out.
  1. Carolina PanthersPatrick Peterson – CB – I have a hard time believing these QB’s will be rated this highly. I think they give the current crop of QB’s one more year to sort themselves out.
  2. Denver TebowsMarcell Dareus – DE/DT – Switching back to a 4-3 defense requires some retooling. They don’t need a receiver and won’t take a QB.
  3. Buffalo BillsNick Fairley – DT/DE – Good player that gives them some schematic versatility.
  4. Cincinnati BunglesBlaine Gabbert – QB – Carson Palmer is no longer in town and won’t come back. Little Palmer is not the answer.
  5. Arizona CardinalsVon Miller – OLB – Great rush backer. Fits into the 3-4 here.
  6. Cleveland Browns - AJ Green - WR – It just makes too much sense. They give McCoy another target to throw to.
  7. San Fransisco 49ersRobert Quinn – DE/OLB – Helps to improve a decent 49ers D.
  8. Tennessee Flaming TacksCam Newton – QB – The Titans owner loves him some athletic QB. Sorry Rusty.
  9. Dallas CowgirlsPrince Amukamara – CB – That secondary was atrocious last year. This helps fix it.
  10. Washington RedskinsJulio Jones – WR – The team doesn’t really have an offensive playmaker at the WR position.
  11. Houston TinhornsJJ Watt – DE – This is another team in a defensive transition and it will be looking for LBs and DL that fit the 3-4. Watt fits in as a 3-4 DE.
  12. Minnesota VikingsJake Locker – QB – It makes too much sense to not be this.
  13. Detroit LionsTyron Smith – T – Arguably the best OT out there. The Lions finally decide to invest in a protection plan for Stafford.
  14. St. Louis RamsMike Pouncey – G – The Rams decide to protect their investment.
  15. Miami DolphinsMark Ingram - The players they actually wanted are no longer here. Ingram is the new starting RB as they let the other vets test free agency.And now for a little suspense…
  16. Jacksonville JaguarsColin Kaepernick - QB – His stock is climbing, he has all the intangibles you look for, the triangle numbers, the arm strength, the decision making. ALTERNATIVES – Cam Jordan, Jake Locker, Christian Ponder, Ryan Kerrigan, Prince Amukamara
  17. New England PatriotsCam Jordan – DE – Somehow, the Patriots always get what they want. That young defense gets even younger at its oldest position.
  18. San Diego BoltsAldon Smith – LB – The Bolts could use more LB’s.
  19. New York GiantsAnthony Costanzo – OT – Giants OL struggled last year.
  20. Tampa Bay BuccaneersDa’Quan Bowers - DE – The Bucs are young and ascending. They have a young core of players and look to make the defense stronger. Bowers slips due to injury concerns.
  21. Kansas City ChiefsNate Solder – OT – They have a good run game and some decent receivers. Solidify the line and those players get even better.
  22. Indianapolis DoltsGabe Carimi – OT – The Colts need some help along the OL. They are getting old and struck out with the last OT pick.
  23. Philadelphia EaglesJimmy Smith – CB – The Eagles have a pretty good D and it only gets better with the selection of the talented Jimmy Smith.
  24. New Orleans SaintsCorey Liuget – DL – The Saint’s DL needs to improve.
  25. Seattle SeahawksRyan Mallet – QB – Seattle tries to find the heir to the Hasselbeck throne. The Seahawks could also go OL.
  26. Baltimore RavensBrandon Harris – CB – The secondary has been a problem for a while now. The Ravens get their man and continue their dominating ways on defense. Aaron Williams could be an option.
  27. Atlanta FalconsCameron Heyward – DE – The Falcs could use some defensive upgrades. Hankerson or Ayers could be an option.
  28. New England Patriots - Adrian Clayborne – DE – The Patriots get another DL to help solidify that defense.
  29. Chicago BearsDerrick Sherrod – OT – The Bears OL sucks. Plain and simple.
  30. New York JetsBrooks Reed – OLB – The Jets have some holes on offense (WR) and defense (Rush LB).
  31. Pittsburgh SteelersPhil Taylor - NT –  The Steelers need help on the OL and in the secondary. The DL is also getting old.
  32. Green Bay PackersJustin Houston – OLB – The SB Champs grab another pass rusher to pair with Matthews.
