- Of course, as with all mocks, this is assuming no trades are made between now and the draft. I will be updating this weekly until the draft.
1. St. Louis Rams:QB Sam Bradford- I still think Suh would be a smarter pick, but the Rams are trying to sell tickets, and they can get a good DT in the second round.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:DT Gerald McCoy- McCoy fits the Tampa 2 system so much better than Suh does. McCoy can get upfield faster, and the Bucs need somebody to rush the passer, especially in the NFC South.
6. Seattle Seahawks:RB C.J. Spiller- Spiller is too good to pass up here. With no legitimate running game, Spiller adds another dimension to an offense that can use all the help it can get.
7. Cleveland Browns:S Eric Berry- I think the Browns are going to wait until next year to address their needs at QB, meaning Berry gets taken here. Their secondary was just awful last year, so this adds a playmaker to the back end.
8. Oakland Raiders: DT Ndamukong Suh- Al Davis will let Tom Cable make a smart pick here and take Suh. The Raiders need help everywhere, and by getting a big guy in the middle, he can help the defense.
9. Buffalo Bills:OT Anthony Davis- I know a lot of people see a QB here, but I don't see Chan Gailey passing up on a starting tackle here, especially since he wants to make the Bills a power running team.
10. Jacksonville Jaguars: WR Demaryius Thomas- They need a DE to help the pass rush, but the skills of Thomas and the addition of Aaron Kampman mean he is to good to pass up, especially after seeing the Jags passing attack last year.
11. Denver Broncos:OLB/DE Jason Pierre-Paul- The Broncos had a great pass rush last year, and Pierre-Paul will only add to that success. Rolando McClain is tempting, but DE is too high on their list.
13. San Fransico 49ers: QB Jimmy Clausen- I don't think Alex Smith is the 49ers QB of the future, and Clausen falls into their lap. With a solid running game, Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree, Clausen should have no problem winning right away.
14. Seattle Seahawks; S Taylor Mays- Mays is a huge reach here, but because of Pete Carrol, he goes here. He should help shore up a terrible defense.
17. San Fransico 49ers: C Maurkice Pouncey- It'll be Iupati or Pouncey, and I see the underclassman being the better of the two. He'll help out rookie QB Jimmy Clausen as well.
18. Pittsburgh Steelers:DT Dan Williams- Casey Hampton did re-sign, but the Steelers are thinking of the future. He gets to study one of the best NT in the league and will be able to take over in a couple of years.
19. Atlanta Falcons: DE Derrick Morgan- Morgan will help the Falcons anemic pass rush, which only got 28.5 sacks last year. The Falcons know they have to stop Drew Brees twice a year and he could help with that.
20. Houston Texans: CB Kyle Wilson- Dunta Robinson leaving hurt their secondary, but Kyle Wilson has a chance to step in right away and fill that whole.
21. Cincinnati Bengals:TE Jermaine Gresham- The only thing left needed for that offense is a good TE, and Gresham fits the bill. He'll take pressure off Ochocinco and Bryant, and give Palmer another big target.
22. New England Patriots:LB Brandon Spikes- The Pats will continue to get younger at LB, and Brandon Spikes and Mayo would be a great inside duo for their 3-4 system.
23. Green Bay Packers:CB Devin McCourty- He'll be behind Woodson and Harris, but he won't have to wait long before he's starting.
25. Baltimore Ravens: WR Dez Bryant- The Ravens are happy he falls this far, even though they got Boldin. Bryant can be very good playing with Boldin, and it will make defenses have to back off Boldin.
26. Arizona Cardinals:LB Sean Lee- The Cardinals need someone to replace Dansby, and Lee is the best available option.
28. San Diego Chargers: NT Terrence Cody: Cody will be Jamal Williams' replacement at NT. The Chargers need him to step up right away.
29. New York Jets: DE Brandon Graham- Graham gives them another elite pass-rusher, and this defense is going to stay at #1 for a while.
31. Indianapolis Colts:DE Jared Odrick- When Freeney couldn't get to Brees in the Super Bowl, the Colts defense got shredded. Odrick comes in to fix that problem.
32. New Orleans Saints:OLB Sean Weatherspoon- The Saints need an OLB to shore up their front seven, and Weatherspoon is one of the best in the draft.
Feel free to tell me what you think, I'll be back next week with my second mock.
