Mock Draft: CB/S Reggie Smith, WR Manningham to Dallas; Roy Williams Dropped!

Team 1st Round

Miami Logo

1. Miami Dolphins -Glen Dorsey, DT, LSU
  • Miami has a lot of needs but with the aging defense, Dorsey can provide help right away. He’ll start immediately for the Dolphins.
St. Louis Rams Draft Logo 2. St. Louis Rams -Chris Long, DE, Virginia
  • Long comes on every play and he is persistent. The Rams do not have a good defense and the defensive line is one of the biggest problems. Chris Long is almost guaranteed to be a Ram.
Atlanta Falcons Draft Logo 3. Atlanta Falcons -Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas
  • The Falcons can still use Warrick Dunn, but McFadden can provide the duo backfield that is becoming popular in the NFL. However, McFadden will eventually be the sole back in Atlanta for this rebuilding effort.

Oakland Raiders Draft Logo

4. Oakland Raiders -Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC
  • Warren Sapp is retiring and Ellis likely can come in immediately to fill that hole.

Kansas City Chiefs Draft Logo

5. Kansas City Chiefs -Jake Long, OT, Michigan
  • Chiefs fans apparently are happy with Brodie Croyle. Okie dokie. You get Long then. No complaints here because he will open up holes for the running game.
NY Jets Draft Logo 6. New York Jets -Desean Jackson, WR, California
  • I know, a bit of a stretch here, but enough is enough: The Jets need a playmaker. Jackson is one and he can help this team. Defense will have to come in the second round or free agency.
New England Patriots Draft Logo 7. New England Patriots (From 49ers) -Vernon Gholston DE/OLB, Ohio State
  • Mocks are putting Gholston even higher than this so if he is available at 7, the Pats will take him. Young talent at this position is necessary for the Pats
 

Ravens Logo

8. Baltimore Ravens -Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
  • Another bust for the Ravens at QB? Highly doubtful. A lot of sports geeks are drooling over this guy. The Ravens might have won a lot more games with a decent QB. Here he comes.

Cincinnati Bengals Draft Logo

9. Cincinnati Bengals -Keith Rivers, OLB, USC
  • Defense. Defense. Defense. The Bengals have been saying this for 10 years. Fingers crossed for this poor franchise. Rivers is a good pick here.
New Orleans Saints Draft Logo 10. New Orleans Saints -Kenny Phillips, S, Miami
  • Secondary is a huge problem for the Saints. Phillips is easily the top prospect at this position in the draft.
Buffalo Bills Draft Logo

11. Buffalo Bills -Ryan Clady, OT, Boise St.
  • You’ve got your running back so you might as well develop as solid a front line as possible. I know you need a corner too, but Clady is going to help you for a decade.

Denver Broncos Draft Logo

12. Denver Broncos -Limus Sweed, WR, Texas
  • It seems like Denver has a good QB but no receiver wants to stay there or perform.
Carolina Panthers Draft Logo 13. Carolina Panthers-Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
  • The Panthers will look to turn a new leaf with Brohm and steal him from the Bears who will take him if he is available.

Chicago Bears Draft Logo

14. Chicago Bears -Andre Woodson, QB, Kentucky
  • They wanted Brohm, but they’ll settle with Woodson. Anyone is better than what they have.

Detroit Lions Draft Logo

15. Detroit Lions -Jonathan Stewart, RB, Oregon
  • The Lions cannot stay healthy at this position so they will keep trying.
Arizona Cardinals Draft Logo 16. Arizona Cardinals -Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas
  • Talib’s stock went up quite a bit with his stellar performance in the bowl game against Va Tech.

Minnesota Vikings Draft Logo

17. Minnesota Vikings -Calais Campbell, DE, Miami
  • He has character problems but the Vikes don’t care. They need young talent at this position so bad to improve that decent defense.
Houston Texans Draft Logo 18. Houston Texans -Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Ill
  • Ahmad Green won’t be healthy ever again. Bringing in someone like Mendenhall now is perfect for the Texans, who really look to be an up and coming force in the NFL.
Eagles Logo 19. Philadelphia Eagles -Malcolm Kelly, WR, Okla
  • I am not sure Kevin Curtis is whom Kevin Kolb had in mind for a top receiver. By the way, Donovan McNabb is going to be traded.
Tampa Bay Bucanneers Draft Logo 20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -Early Doucet, WR, LSU
  • Great hands. Powerful. Smart. With little life left for Joey Galloway, Doucet can take over.
Washington Redskins Draft Logo

21. Washington Redskins -Quentin Groves, DE/OLB, Auburn
  • Why did they pass on Gaines Adams? This is the Redskins chance to pair someone with Carter. Groves is awesome.
Dallas Cowboys Draft Logo 22. Dallas Cowboys (From Browns) -Reggie Smith CB/S, Okla
  • The fact he can play corner and safety is important for the Cowboys because we’re tired of current safety Roy Williams. And I would bet the Cowboys are targeting Asante Samuel in free agency.
Seattle Seahawks Draft Logo 23. Seattle Seahawks -Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas
  • Dallas may grab him first but somehow, someway, the Seahawks should and will draft a running back first. They need to, if this year was any indication.
Pittsburgh Steelers Draft Logo 24. Pittsburgh Steelers -Sam Baker, OT, USC
  • The Steelers may lose a couple of their offensive lineman so they better snag Baker because he’s a steal here.

Tennesse Titans Draft Logo

25. Tennessee Titans -Adarius Bowman, WR, OKL St
  • You just better hope Vince can throw to this guy.
New York Giants Draft Logo 26. New York Giants -Mike Jenkins, CB, USF
  • Although a decimated secondary found ways to win, miracles happen from time to time. But the Giants need to secure the secondary for next year.
San Diego Chargers Draft Logo 27. San Diego Chargers -Dan Connor, LB, Penn State
  • The Chargers clearly need another linebacker to round off the defense. Connor has been put as high as a top 10 pick. So snag him if he is there.
Jacksonville Jaguars Draft Logo 28. Jacksonville Jaguars -Brandon Flowers, CB, VA Tech
  • The Jags will have to improve the pass defense in the pass-happy AFC. Flowers is getting a lot of attention.
Dallas Cowboys Draft Logo 29. Dallas Cowboys -Mario Manningham, WR, Michigan
  • I might be the first mock that doesn’t have Dallas picking a running back right away. It all depends. Personally, I am not against with that 22 pick putting Felix Jones in there. It’s really up in the air at this point. But there is a Manningham fan club on cowboys-forum.com. I joined it.


Green Bay Packers Draft Logo 30. Green Bay Packers -Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
  • One of the only teams that doesn’t have a ton of holes to fill. The Packers have some aging corners though and Cason could come in to learn.

San Francisco 49ers Draft Logo

31. San Francisco 49ers (From Colts) -James Hardy, WR, Indiana
  • Please give Alex Smith someone to throw to! I mean, it is ridiculous that he’s getting criticized with that crap receiving corps.

New England Patriots Draft Logo

32. FORFEITED-CHEATERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
