This draft is going to be another tough Draft to figure out. With Andrew Luck predictably staying in school, there is no clear Number one.

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. The Steelers have become Smurf central in the passing game. Getting a big outside guy would really help Roethlisberger.  

The Player: Jenkins is a big hulking DT/NT who has some movement in his legs. His best position in the NFL will likely be at NT. He can't do it consistently all game, but when he can be a bulldozer right in the middle of the line. There has to be 3-4 team that see this kid as their answer at Nose Tackle in the 1st.  If he were a little lighter and in better shape he could have been the first D-Tackle taken. Amazing blend of power and quickness. When he is on, he is unblockable. Showed some nice fight at Senior Bowl. He is just a pocket collapsing NT. Huge man with an impressive burst inside. The best Nose Tackle prospect in the Draft. He is so good at keeping O-Linemen moving backwards.

The Reason: Jenkins is a straight up Nose Tackle. That would give them some depth along the D-Line that desperate needs it.

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. The Giants need to get a Corner who can cover. They play a lot of cover-two, which is perfect for Banks. I know this was a while ago, but I keep thinking back to a while back when they took a CB out of LSU. He was an extremely gifted athlete who was very highly thought of, but he ran a 4.6 at the Combine. I believe his name was Corey Webster. He worked out pretty well.

The Player: Banks is a super athletic CB who looks to me like he can step in and start next season. He ran a surprisingly slow speed. He will need help over the top. However, he has everything you want in a CB expect top speed. Phenomenal feet. Great hips. Good hands. Tough for WRs to shake. He will likely have to move to Safety at some point. He is such a phenomenal athlete that you have to think he can play CB in a Cover Two only. With his ability to play the run and be aggressive, he could be a terrific new age Safety in the NFL. For those of you who think workouts don't matter at the Combine, ask Banks what he thinks. Because his Forty cost him millions. You can't draft a CB with 4.6 speed in the 1st Round. He was a starter at FS as a freshman. 

The Reason: Banks could step in and start next season.

Rex Grossman QB

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. Washington needs some help in the Secondary. They might need more help at Safety, but Wren-Wilson is too good to pass up. 

The Player: Wren-Wilson is one of the top risers this off season.  He garnered 47 Tackles, 9 PBU, and an INT last season. This guy looks the part. Plus, he has shown he can play the part. He was named team Captain in 2010, and then blew out his knee in 2011. He came back in 2012 to be named MVP of his team. This kid can really move on the field. He has great feet. Comes up fast on short routes. Steps up on the RB and attacks his legs nicely. He can read the route and break on the ball nicely. He really played better and better as the game went on at SB. Tall lanky guy. Plays a little high sometimes. Long arms. Needs to get lower. May have to move to Safety. Better in Off. He also is a big strong CB, who has a fall back position as a coverage FS. I like Gratz a little better, but I am in the minority here. He has a bad start, and still ran a 4.47. Showed some nice smooth feet in pedal. Didn't snap his hips in transition. Tight hips. He has some suddenness in his shoulders.

The Reason: Wren-Wilson is a guy who some thought could go in the 1st round. He is just too good to pass up here.

The Team: The Pate receive; 52 (2nd), 83 (3rd), 102 (4th), and 229 (7th). What a swindle. The pats pick up more for moving halfway down through the 2nd Round, then Jerry Jones received for moving down halfway through the 1st Round. Amazing. Jones got a 3rd, for moving down in the 1st, and the Pats got a 3rd, 4th, and 7th, for moving down through the 2nd Round. Plus, Oakland got a 2nd for drop from Three out of the top ten to Twelve. BB could use the 3rd, 4th, and 7th he got from the Viking to move back up into the 2nd. They almost got the same compensation that Oakland got for dropping out of the top ten. Remarkable. Then they have the top 3-4 D-End drop down to them. They might like a DB here rather than a D-End. Word coming out of Foxboro is that they like Logan Ryan. he is a physical freak. Very well built, and lightning quick. The kid can really cover. But I seem him more as a 3rd Round Nickel with a chance to start in a Cover Two. He lacks the top end speed you need outside. So he would fit in our backfield nicely. He gives up the deep ball too much as well. They have positioned themselves to snag a slider. Now is not the time to get stubborn and focus in an a Tavon Wilson type CB. Take the faller. Take the talent. When a potential difference maker drops to you in the 50s, you take him. Hunt is the real deal. He might be a force right away, but playing next to veterans like Wilfork and Kelly can do nothing but help this kid out. 

The Player: 3/14 The Waterboy- Margus Hunt.

The Reason: Hunt will play LDE in BB 3-4 for as long as he is around. The Draft could not have fallen for them any better.

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. Both Sanu and Jones have not developed as well as I expected. So taking a shot at a super talent with Character Concerns might be an interesting option. 

The Player: Rogers is every bit as talented as Cordarrelle Patterson. In fact, they played together at Tennessee. they are so similar it can look like their is a mirror between each other. At the Tennessee Proday they looked like twins. They even had an interesting competition, that coaches loved, by challenging each other in a Vert battle. Only Rogers is a better pure WR. He is has terrific hand. He is better at catching the ball away from his body. In 2011, it was Rogers who was dominating the SEC with his great skills and terrific hands (67 catches for 1,040 yards and 9 TDs in the SEC). As just a pure WR prospect, Rogers is a better pure WR prospect. Patterson is better with the ball in his hands. However, he plain and simply cannot be trusted. He is likely to come in and have a better rookie season than Patterson because: he will pick the offense up quicker, he runs better patterns, and he has better hands. However, he is also likely to self destruct his way off a team in a year or two. With his explosive desire to destroy his life, he cannot be counted on in any five year plan. But while he holds it together mentally, he could be something to see. 

The Reason: Top player with CC at a not so top need position.

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. KC has to get a QB that they can train behind the average Alex Smith. They consummate the trade with Miami after trying to get Miami to bid against themselves. 

The Player: 4/10 The Feet of Mercury?- Matt Barkley

The Reason: This could be the perfect place for Barkley. He can sit behind Smith for a year and two, and work on his arm strength. Get must get his body and arm stronger if he wants to play QB in the NFL. This pick would give him time to learn, get in the weight room, and work all day every day on improving his arm strength. Brady did it. Brees did it. And Aaron Rogers certainly did it. This kid can certainly do it.

Donald Driver (Retired)

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. O-Line is a concern, but they they lost their two striating O-Tackles to broken bones last season. Then two young kids stepped up and played well. So while their O-Line was disappointing, if Derek Sherrod and Bryan Bulaga return healthy, they have an abundance of O-Tackles, with three youngsters filling all three inside positions as well. They could easily go defense here. However, no matter how many names you have at RB, when your leading rusher garnered under 500 yards, it is time to pick up an RB early. 

The Player: Bernard is a short productive runner with some interesting flare. Excellent receiver out of the backfield. He has some shimmy-shimmy-shake in his shoulders. Natural receiver. Willing lead blocker for QB on the option in the running game. Strange blocker in the passing game. Dances a little at the Line. Like the hop-cut at the LOS. He has a lot of experience in the passing game. He will line up in the Slot and run WR patterns. Runs mostly Draws, Delays, and Options in shotgun offense. Not the biggest back, but has some nifty feet. When he tries he can pick up the blitzer. Gets bent back, but stays in front of rusher. Pretty good picking up blitzer. Gives good effort. Has good technique, but can be over powered sometimes. He is such a smooth runner. He gets side to side with as much quickness as anyone in this Draft, because of his great feet. He is just so much smoother doing it. He has some Ray Rice in his game. Nice hands. He can really reach up and grab the awkwardly throw ball as smoothly as I’ve seen. I don’t know if he is a good deep receiver, but he is as good as it gets swinging out of the backfield. I don’t think anyone should take a RB in the 1st Round of this Draft, but there is an awful lot to like about this kid. When he catches the ball out in the Flat, he is such a nightmare in the open field. He doesn’t look as fast as he is, until you see a LB trying to corral him on the sideline. He might just have 4.4 speed. He looks like he is going to be a special weapon in the passing game. He returns punts. The more I watch him the more I like him. I can see why some think he is a 1st Round talent. He is a little light, and got injured a lot this past season. He did a great job playing through pain and injury, but you wonder how much of the beating he can take in the NFL.

The Reason: They have to get a number one back to take some pressure off of Rogers.

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. We know Pete likes his size speed athletes. You would think they would help the offense here. They seem to have miraculously found a QB in the 3rd Round. So getting him some protection or weapons seems to be the priority to me. Getting a receiving TE would really help out this offense. 

The Player: Escobar is a big receiving TE who ran a worse forty than expected. He is one of those enigma guys, who has great strong hands and can snag the ball out of the air, but will drop some easy ones . I think he is being overrated and pushed up the boards. He only garnered 543 yards and 6 TDs on 42 receptions, at a lower level school. Plus, he gets the dropsies. Not a good blocker. More of an H-back.  

The Reason: A dynamic receiving TE is just about the only thing this offense is missing.

The Team: They need a Safety.

The Player: Swearinger is a great football player and leader. He was the team Captain. He made the hits that made is entire team go nuts. He hits so hard I don't know if he can play in the new NFL. He is underrated in Coverage. Most see him as a big power guy, but he is a super quick twitch Free Safety. Wow! He can really hit. I like his pedal as he eyes down the QB. He has it. He is everything you wan tin a FS, but I question if he can play Safety. He got suspended for a helmet to helmet hit in college. How many of those do you think he'll get in the NFL What makes him so wonderful to watch in college he is all out aggression, but he can't play like that in the NFL. He is such a great hitter that is takes focus away from all the other things he does. He is very good in coverage. Leader on the field. Makes checks and calls. Knows what all the other guy are doing.  

The Reason: They could use some help in the secondary at different position. This was likely a mistake in this Mock. I kept forgetting about him Dallas likely won't pass on him, and there are a lot of teams in front of Houston. But we saw some odd reaches in the 1st Round, and you always she more odd reaches in the 2nd.

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. Another team desperate for a Safety in a loaded Draft.   

The Player: Thomas is a small school Safety who really looks like an NFL player on the field. He missed 2011 with a broken Leg. Then came back in 2012 with 8 INTs, three for TDs, and 4 PBU. He showed up at the Combine a little smaller and slower than I thought. Small school guys have to have perfect measurements to go high. Terrific transition to the side. 

The Reason: I would be shocked if they let Day Two go by without a Safety.

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. Woods is the one receiver I think can come right in and form a bond with Brady on the field. 

The state of the WR position in Foxboro has been shaken not stirred into a jumble of who knows what. The question isn't can Amendola play, the question is can he stay on the field? I like the Malcolm Floyd signing, but anytime you sign a WR nicknamed Molasses, whether it is fair or not you have to worry. The question with Donald Jones isn't can he play, but why did Buffalo not think he could play? So what does Brady have at WR? We honestly have to say that we have no idea. Adding a rookie to the field is rarely a clarifying move. However, they could easily get a WR in the 2nd Round who is clearly their most talented WR. They could also get a WR in the 2nd Round who is starting outside for them come day one. 

The Player: 4/18  He Can Be Counted On- Robert Woods.

Woods ran an Unofficial  4.44 at the Combine. Before the young WR took over at USC, he was considered a top ten guy. Any team that is looking at Barkley, has to raise Barkley's stock if they think they can team him up with this kid in the Second Round. I am a big time fan of this kid. He has the quickness to get open consistently on short and intermediate patterns. Adding 4.4 speed to that is the final straw for me. Plays the sideline nicely. Great feet. I just like how he catches the ball. Makes nice adjustment to deep ball in the air. No problem catching the ball over his head. Smooth athlete. Terrific running Slants. Runs great patterns. He is the type of precise and polished route runner that Brady would like in a rookie. He is so good at getting open at the marker. Terrific hands. He is a clutch 3rd down receiver. He has some nice shimmy in his shoulders. I really liked how they used him as a Sophomore, and hate how they used him last season. However, he never complained, even though you could he got frustrated sometimes as he got phased out of the offense. Very smart player with top end instincts. Terrific quickness and agility. I like the comparison to Reggie Wayne. 

Armstead is the forth best pure OLT in this Draft. He has the size, long arms, and feet to play OLT in the NFL. 

The Reason: The Patriots have a problem. They not only need to get a WR who can play on the outside, they need a WR who can play with Brady. That is not as easily said as done. I see Woods and Hopkins as the two WRs who are smart enough and run patterns precisely enough to be able to play with Brady's high demands on WRs' brains. Barkley is an outside WR, which is just what we need in the offense. The only question of fit is he is not a speed merchant. They really need a guy, like Marcus Wheaton, who can spread the field for all the dynamic underneath guys they have. Wheaton is also a guy who I think can play with Brady. He has dynamic speed. Track guy who has made himself into a football guy with hard work, dedication, and study. He works on his game and studies his route running and WR technique. He has great eyes for reading the defense, which might be the most important asset in this offense. Could add Mike Wallace type deep threat to Pats offense. 

Second Choice: Marcus Wheaton WR

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. The release of three aging veterans has freed up 16 Million in Cap room. “Guys, this time of the year, there are tough decisions that have to be made,” Falcon's HC Smith said. “We are recalibrating our roster as we speak, going through that process.... We’ll continue to go through that process in terms of how we are going to recalibrate it.” The move gives them the space to sign Gonzalez and Baker. Gonzalez is a freak, and Baker has finally turned into he play Dimitroff thought he was. Don't worry Falcon's fans Dimitroff isn't letting Baker go anywhere. 

Thomas Demitroff has said he wants to improve both Lines. However, getting a three down Linebacker might just be their top priority this off season. A few years back they took they took an undersized playmaking linebacker in the 1st named Witherspoon, and he worked out pretty well. 

The Player: 4/12 Looks Like A Patriot to me- Alex Okafor

The Reason: It looked to me like they were choosing between Okafor, Trufant, and Lacy. If they get two of those players that will be ecstatic in Atlanta. 

Second Choice: Barry Minter LB

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. Word out of San Fran is that they want a WR. Wheaton is similar to AJ Jenkins, the last WR the took early. Only he is tougher and a better route runner.

The Player: Wheaton is a true speedster. Terrific getting off the Press. Tough kid, who can sure catch the ball through the big hit. Nice quickness that he uses to get CBs to run by him. He knows how to get open. Nice suddenness in his shoulders on release. He has great feet. They like to run him underneath. He has that herky jerky quickness you look for in a WR. He has that speed and suddenness that you look for. Good blocker. Does a nice job on the Out. Hand catcher who can extends his hands about his head and catch it easily. Plays in the Slot a lot. He has excellent hands, and can dig the ball out of the turf. Looks like he has nice speed off the line. Excellent receiver who plays for a bad QB. He throws it at his feet a lot. But Wheaton has nice speed and terrific hands, and that lateral quickness you need to be a great WR in the NFL. He can run past the CB on inside move. This is a kid I love. I think he would be a great steal for the Pats in round Two or Three. Preferably Three, but he is unlikely to make it that far. However, he has been under the radar. He is so smooth going to the ball. Quick hands go up for the ball. Makes nice adjustment to deep ball in the air. No problem catch the ball over his head. He can make great adjustments to the ball in the air. 

The Reason: He would be a nice outside speed guy for this offense.

The Team: Another pick I am not changing off my Final Mock. They have to find a replacements for three Linebackers. 

It hurts my nuts to say so, but you have to congratulate the Ravens on a well fought Super Bowl run.  

The Player: Minter is wonderful ILB against the run. He is much better moving forward than backwards. At his best when he can run in a straight line through the RB. We have all seen him play at LSU. My problem with him is that I don't think he is a three down Linebacker. I like how he looks dropping, but he seem to unaware in coverage for me. He will continue to struggle in coverage in the NFL. I like how he takes on blockers. He burst through the hole regularly to meet the RB. I really like his athleticism, toughness, and ability to read the run. However, he doesn't have it in coverage yet. ILB drop in Drafts, and two down ILB drop further than they should. The talk him in the 1st Round is preposterous. I don't mean to rag him down. I really like everything about his game, except for one flaw. Every person has flaws. His is just in coverage. 

The Reason: I don't need to explain this pick. .
