2009 Draft Open Thread

Welcome to the 2009 Draft! Live from some satellite of New Orleans spun off into the depths of the North Carolina mountains! I'm your host, MtnExile, because Saintsational Dave is busy doing some wedding stuff involving mourning for his lost freedom, or something along those lines. Anyway, this is enough introduction.

Here's what we're gonna do. Below is a table showing the current draft order of the first round, with the players assigned to each team in the Canal Street Chronicles Mock Draft. We're going to update each choice with the real selection, as it's made, giving everyone the chance to mock...us.

Plus, you can talk about other stuff by adding a comment. Just like normal. You can probably tell I've never hosted one of these events before. I can hear stujo going, GAAAAAA!!!

Prediction

Detroit Lions

With the 1st pick in the draft, the Detroit Lions choose...
Matthew Stafford, Quarterback, Georgia

So the Lions actually pulled the trigger on Stafford. This is going to send ripples through the entire CSC mock. On the other hand, it may be good news for the Lions. Little known fact: when Bobby Layne was traded to Pittsburgh, he said Detroit wouldn't have a winner for another fifty years. People now consider it a pretty effective curse. Well, it's been fifty years. Can Stafford be the second coming of Layne? Maybe...considering that they both came out of Highland Park High in Texas.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Jason Smith

 

St. Louis Rams

With the 2nd pick in the draft, the St. Louis Rams choose...
Jason Smith, Offensive Tackle, Baylor

Smith didn't drop very far, did he? The CSC Mock Draft, however, continues to sink.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Michael Crabtree

 

Kansas City Chiefs

With the 3rd pick in the draft, the Kansas City Chiefs choose...
Tyson Jackson, Defensive End, LSU

Well well well. Keyshawn Johnson was right: the Bill Parcells philosophy of building a team from the inside out, starting with the line, prevails under new GM Scott Pioli.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Aaron Curry

 

Seattle Seahawks

With the 4th pick in the draft, the Seattle Seahawks choose...
Aaron Curry, Linebacker, Wake Forest

The replacement for Julian Peterson, and also for Eugene Monroe, making us 0-4.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Eugene Monroe

 

New York Jets

With the 5th pick in the draft, the New York Jets choose...
Mark Sanchez, Quarterback, USC

The new savior in New York. Personally, I think this is a great move.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Brian Orakpo

 

Cincinnati Bengals

With the 6th pick in the draft, the Cincinnati Bengals choose...
Andre Smith, Offensive Tackle, Alabama

Typical of Cincinnati to take the worst of the bunch. Oh well...let the name of B.J Raji be stricken from all obelisks and monuments...

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: B.J. Raji

 

Oakland Raiders

With the 7th pick in the draft, the Oakland Raiders choose...
Darrius Heyward-Bey, Wide Receiver, Maryland

Al Davis takes the fastest receiver. Wow. Big surprise. Where's the "tongue firmly in cheek" icon?

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Michael Oher

 

Jacksonville Jaguars

With the 8th pick in the draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars choose...
Eugene Monroe, Offensive Tackle, Virginia

We almost had a chance to get half a check if they'd just picked a wide receiver. But hell...can't argue with this kind of pick.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Percy Harvin

 

Green Bay Packers

With the 9th pick in the draft, the Green Bay Packers choose...
B.J. Raji, Defensive Tackle, Boston College

Well, they needed a 3-4 nose tackle as much as an outside rusher. Another X.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Everette Brown

 

San Francisco 49ers

With the 10th pick in the draft, the San Francisco 49ers choose...
Michael Crabtree, Wide Receiver, Texas Tech

Wow! We got the position right!

In your face, Saintsational. YES!

No

Houston Texans

With the 15th pick in the draft, the Houston Texans choose...

Detroit just messed up my second pick. Thanks, Lions. Okay pick, though.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Josh Freeman

 

Cleveland Browns

With the 21st pick in the draft, the Cleveland Browns choose...
Alex Mack, Center, California

Wow! After all that, they reach for Alex Mack. Oh well...he's a good center. Cleveland, by the way, is doing exactly what I had hoped we would do: they're stockpiling picks galore.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Knowshon Moreno

 

Minnesota Vikings

With the 22nd pick in the draft, the Minnesota Vikings choose...
Percy Harvin, Wide Receiver, Florida

A lot of drugs going around in the war rooms today.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Eben Britton

 

Baltimore Ravens

With the 23rd pick in the draft, the Baltimore Ravens choose...
Michael Oher, Offensive Tackle, Ole Miss

So Oher makes it to the first round after all.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Malcolm Jenkins

 

Atlanta Falcons

With the 24th pick in the draft, the Atlanta Falcons choose...

Green Bay Packers

With the 26th pick in the draft, the Green Bay Packers choose...

The Pack is back. Raji and Matthews in the same draft...in the same round!--that's the kind of trading I wish we'd do.

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Hakeem Nicks

 

Indianapolis Colts

With the 27th pick in the draft, the Indianapolis Colts choose...

With Addai, do they really need Brown this much?

Now THAT was unexpected...but Wood is a great lineman.

No

New York Giants

With the 29th pick in the draft, the New York Giants choose...
Hakeem Nicks, Wide Receiver, North Carolina

No
 

Predicted CSC Mock Draft pick: Darrius Heyward-Bey

 

Tennessee Titans

Whoo-hoo! Another check mark!
