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: I tried to find a way for a WR and Adams drop to them at 45. I couldn't see it. But they can go Freak Factor here, and pray Adams drops, and I think they might have a shot at Thompson at 45. I have like Stills here for a while, but they have to get a WR for Bradford who has a chance to be a good one. 

This would be such a huge hit for the Rams. Still is a 1st Round talent but because he had the Knee injuries he seems to be falling. Plus, teams wonder what happened to him early in his career. If he drops to the bottom third of the 1st Round, I just can't find a spot for him. Still could be one of those guys that someone at the top of the 2nd Round trades up for. 

The Rams WR were so bad last year, getting Jeffery at the top of the 2nd Round is just to good to pass up. After 2010 Blackman and Jeffery were battling each other to be the top WRs taken in this years Draft. They were also all but sure fire top ten picks. To get both for a your young developing QB is just to good to be true. They only thing better would a one of the top OLT prospect to drop into their hands. 

The Player: 4/10  Hill- Freak Factor.

The Reason: Getting the top Freak Factor in the Draft would be a huge hit for them.

The Team: Okay, the Colts will be fools to go any other way but Fleener. You have to do anything you can to make Luck comfortable. I'd take Fleener here and make sure you get Owusu on Day Three. So Luck can learn and throw with two guys he is used to throwing and learning with. Plus, they need a TE. If they makes those moves Luck and Fleener are starting day one, and both have a much better chance of being successful earlier. 

The Player: 3/11 Mystery Man, Colby Fleener. 

The Team: Fleener is the top talent on the board, and helping Luck get comfortable in his new environment is their top need. There is nothing the better then when top need meets top player. 

Second Choice: None

The Team: I still have a shot at this pick!

“We had a couple of teams call us and we had several players that we liked that are still available for us tomorrow,” Ozzy Newsome said. “To be able to pick up that 98th pick from Minnesota, we think that’s just going to be another good player. When you watch the board come off like it did today, to have the ability to go back and acquire another player and still get a player that you probably would have picked at your pick is good business for us.”

Impossible to tell where they are going to go here. There are too many Free Agency issues to deal with. They have three obvious emergency situations. They should Franchise Rice, and Webb is a Restricted FA. However, right now they have no Center on the team. Word out of Baltimore is that they don't want Burk back. Which leaves them with a choice of resigning Gurode, not likely, or Drafting an OC early. 

The Player:  Konz- Plug An' Play Part I.

The Reason: They have to find a Center in FA or early in the Draft.   

Second Choice: *David Wilson RB

Daniel Fells TE

The Team: I still have a shot at this pick! 

I have been the champion of this pick. "We're not going to fix this thing overnight. We're not going to fix it with one draft," Elway said. "We still feel like those impact guys are there. And if not there for an impact, they're definitely contributors,"

Another team that needs fit their position. Or, go for a WR like Wright here as well. However, D-Tackle is also a concern for this Team with Ryan McBean and Marcus Thomas FA, and Bunkley gone, that deosn;t leave much in the middle of the D-Line. 

The Player: 3/27 Worthy- I Think He's Worthy.

His stat do not show the true story of his effect on the game. This guy is explosive off the snap as any D-Linemen in this years Draft. He can be as disruptive as anybody in this Draft. He can get 2 or 3 yards into the backfield quicker than any D-Tackle in this years Draft. That is a lot of positives. His problem is that he does have a great closing burst to go with his great blast off the snap. He gets into the backfield, but does get to the ball as consistently as you like. DTs need to do three things: get into the backfield, find the ball, and then get to the ball. Sometimes DT get into the backfield and can’t find the ball, because they are in the backfield so fast. Worthy has the ability to get into the backfield, looks like he can find the ball, but doesn’t always get to the ball.  He needs to disengage better and work on a second burst to the ball, or closing burst. To me, that is the only thing standing between him and Haloti Ngata.  

The Reason: When a talent like Worthy drops out of the top fifteen at a need position, you don't think. You just smile and take him. Top rated player at top need position.

The Reason: Glenn makes Weeden and/or Colt better. Richardson makes Glenn and Weeden better. Glenn makes Richardson better. Looks like everyone wins to me.

Leger Douzable DT (R)

The Team: Jags have to a D-End to help Mincy rush the QQB, if they want any chance at all to win their division. Plus, they have a history of taking Senior Bowl hero's, and this kid dominated the Senior Bowl. 

The Player: Curry is a small school passrusher who has played well when he has stepped up. He has that blast off the line that you look for. Shows some suddenness. You have to throw out the Forty time at the Combine, but he plays way faster than he showed at the Combine. Hard worker, who plays hard and obviously loves football. Showed some interesting power with his bullrush at Combine, which was a little surprising because of his thin build. He is thin, but not weak. Displays freakish strength, like when he Jacked Sanders and bulled him back into the Quarterback at the Senior Bowl.. Really should be outside at the Senior Bowl. He uses his arms well to keep off blocker. Nice Bullrush. Shows better burst off the line than I remember. He can get real low and TTC. Thin legs. It will be interesting to see what he looks like when he adds some size and strength to those toothpicks legs. Plays very well with his hands extended. Excellent push-pull. Plays with strong hands despite his size. Plays with excellent quickness and COD. Despite thin legs has some nice power in his legs. His best move at Senior Bowl was the Bull-rush. Jammed guys up with his arms and drove them backwards. He does a nice job coming off low with excellent lean and extended arms. He is mot effective when he comes off the line and stays low and moves his hands up into blockers. He has some nice herky–jerky shoulders which he uses sometimes. He has some suddenness in his shoulders. He can really redirect and hit the RB when he makes a nice move on him. Excellent change of direction. He gets up field so fast. Very nice burst off the snap. He has nice fast hands, and can get them up quickly and tip the ball. Also uses those nice quick hands to slap off blockers hands. He really has a nice blast off the line. He has that suddenness in his shoulders that you look for. I am so impressed with his play at the Senior Bowl, and I haven’t even gotten to his Sacks yet (I watched it just for fun first;-). He is so good and blasting off the line low, and moving his hands up and jamming them into the O-Tackles pads and neck. He gets them off balance with his hands and burst so consistently. Cordy Glenn was having a nice Senior Bowl at OLT, until he meet Curry. Curry seemed to get him off balance on every play. He has such nice violent hands. He made a lot of coaches standing up and take notice at the Senior Bowl. Terrific COD. Smart player who reads it well. He has a great motor and really gets around the field. He has that knack for using his hands to control the OT that you just can’t teach. He can grab the arms of the OT, and use his hands to pull himself inside or  outside. I was very impressed with that rush. He had two sacks and the hit on Weeden that caused the INT by Wagner in the Senior Bowl. He won’t get out of the 2nd Round.

The Reason: Jags take a chance on small school rush who has all the right pedigree, and dominated at the Senior Bowl.

The Team: Rams O-Tackles didn't play well last season, especially in the passing game. If Detroit passes on Adams, he should drop this far. The Rams also have to think about double dipping at DT and Wide Receiver. Getting Adams and moving Roger Saffold inside to Left Guard, improves two spots. Then you have three other Tackles fighting it out to play Right Tackle.   

The Player:

The Reason: They take the falling pothead to protect Bradford's Blindside..

Mackenzy Bernadeau OG

The Team: Panthers will be heart broken if Jeffery, Randle, and Sanu are all gone. They have to start getting help for Newton. With Brian Quick, Nick Toon, Dwight Jones, and Juron Criner all big WR's who could compliment Smith most likely three or all four will still be available in the 3rd. With that said, they really could use some serious Linebacker insurance, as their two best LBs are coming back from knee surgery, and you really can't expect much from Thomas Davis. Hightower doesn't exactly help the speed, but he'll help everything else in this defense. Plus, he can rush from inside and outside on passing downs.

The Player: 4/10  Jeffery- Winning the End of the Route.

The Reason: Panthers have to start loading up on offensive pick to help their young QB. However, the value is not really here, and with Hightower sliding down this far they have to take him.

Kendall Langford DE

The Team:  They have the big guys and now just need some help in the rush. I am not the biggest fan of Branch's. However, he did run a 4.4 Forty, which is impressive. Naini just needs him to come in and add some speed to the rush. They have to a D-End who can rush the passer in this Draft to help Clemons. 

Cameron Wake's efficiency went down last season as he had no help rushing the QB. If there is any DE/OLB who can rush the QB on the board they will jump all over him.  

The Player: Branch is a pure speed rusher. Doesn’t use his hands well. Speed rusher who struggles with second move. He has to learn to use his hands better and keep OT’s hands off his shirt. I worry about him turning the corner. Ran a 1.56 10-Yard at Combine with jives with what I saw. He blast off the edge and beats the OT to the corner, but then is either stopped and sneaks past him. Cheated a little on the four pad drill. He does have some nice ankle flexion. Nice speed dropping, but doesn't break on the ball very well. Plays a little high in LB drills. High hips moving in the open field.

The Reason: They have been pining for a rusher all off season.

Robert Gallery OG

The Team: They had a huge reach in teh 1st Round for speed, and they do it again here.

The Seattle Linebacker corps is in a state of flux. They will be seeking someone who can step in and help out in multiple ways. “When you look at it, we really like our guys, but we need to get faster on defense,” Carroll said when asked about the unit that ranked No. 9 in the league last season. “As big as we are, we need to get faster. So I’d like to see us add more speed in the linebacker corps.” 

The Player: Brown is an amazing athlete who sometimes looks like he can anything on the field he likes. Which is also his biggest problem, because he doesn't like to get physical. However, in the new pass first ask questions later NFL you have to be able to cover if you want to play defense. Brown is easily the best Linebacker in coverage in this Draft. Which makes him a safe pick, because minimally he is Cover LB, and special teams maven. Made a lot of money at the Senior Bowl. At his best when he can just run to the ball. Not good at the physical stuff. Not scheme diverse. He has to be a WLB in a run and chase defense. Blockers kill him. He needs to go untouched to the ball. Excellent in coverage when he can just turn and run. No trouble covering TE when the run down the Seam. No trouble covering RB when they run a Wheel out of the backfield. The less physical it is the better he looks. Set indoor 60-meter track record. Looks like a Safety. When he plays with his hands up he is much more effective, but he still wants to just run to the ball. Speed linebacker who will be most effective. Lacks power and strength. Once blockers get their hands on him he is done.   

The Reason: I have no doubt he can step in a rookie and be a designated speed rusher, similar to what Mark Anderson did for the Pat's in the first half of the season or so.

The Team: The Chiefs Offense fell apart last season, and the play, or lack their of, at ORT was a big reason. If Massie is on the board they take him. Otherwise grabbing a Center who can solidify the O-Line might be the next biggest need.  

The Player: Massie is the most highly rated pure ORT in this Draft. He sometimes Lowers his hand blocking down on D-End sometimes. Likes the Helmet butt. Looks real nice pulling to his right. He has a great burst once he turns up field. He slows a little to spot his target. Gets a nice pop on initial contact. Extends his arms nicely with power. Nice strong hands he uses to grab shirt.  

The Reason: KC has to get a long term solution at OC and ORT.

The Team: I don't think the Drafting of Brockers chances anything. They have to get two D-Tackles in this Draft. I would be shocked if they don't end up with Stills, Worthy, or Thompson in one of their three picks. I think they need to double up on WR and D-Tackle, but there is a ton of talent at WR 2nd this Draft. There are legit NFL starters in the 4th Round. Getting an O-Linemen is imperative, but there are still three top OLT on the board. A RB to take some carries off of Jackson is must, but you can get a change of pace Back in the 5th, 6th, and 7th Round.  

This would be such a huge hit for the Rams. Still is a 1st Round talent but because he had the Knee injuries he seems to be falling. Plus, teams wonder what happened to him early in his career. If he drops to the bottom third of the 1st Round, I just can't find a spot for him. Still could be one of those guys that someone at the top of the 2nd Round trades up for. 

The Rams WR were so bad last year, getting Jeffery at the top of the 2nd Round is just to good to pass up. After 2010 Blackman and Jeffery were battling each other to be the top WRs taken in this years Draft. They were also all but sure fire top ten picks. To get both for a your young developing QB is just to good to be true. They only thing better would a one of the top OLT prospect to drop into their hands. 

The Player:  Stills is one of the best I’ve seen this year. Last season he had over the past two seasons he garnered 8.5 Sacks, 17 TFL, 94 TKL, 2 FF 1 FR, and 2 PBU. He can combo moves together. He will Swim and then push-pull if he gets stuck. When he stays and plays low he is a beast. He sometimes gets little high at 6-5, and OGs can dig under his pads, but even when they get under his pads he is still hard to move backwards. Relies a little too much on the Swim. He likes to get his hands up, read run, and Swim over OG. He can be stalemated for a while then he always suddenly burst up the middle and destroys the play. He has the power to bull the OG smack into the QB like he did against Illinois. He got his hands under the OG's pads, and threw him u[ and backwards like a a kid on a seesaw. He has great hands. His Chop is as good as I’ve seen. He can be a monster passrusher right inside. When he reads pass he is very hard to stop. He is so explosive off the snap.

Still is a big strong guy with a great burst and great quickness inside. He does get pushed around at the point sometimes, and that inconsistency worries a lot of people. However, it did not happen very often this past season. He stayed and played much lower consistently. He also has the size, long arms, and quickness to reach the QB from the 5-Technique. He might be the best player in this Draft for a team that likes to switch back and forth between a 4-3 and a 3-4. 

The Reason: Getting a top D-Tackle is the second priority behind finding help for their young Franchise QB.

The Team: The Jets have to fill the huge hole left by LT. Wilson is the real deal and has the speed to be a nice lighting to Green's Thunder. 

The Player: Quick was a very productive WR as a small school that has shown some history of producing NFL players. Much bigger than I thought. I like how he ran patterns at the Senior Bowl. He has garnered over 202 receptions, 3,418 yards, and 31 TDs. That is very impressive even at Appalachian ST. Showed nice hands as well. I like how he snags the ball out of the air. Very fast hands and can snap them in place with amazing quickness when he sees the ball late. He is really moving up the charts and will not escape the 2nd round. He has big strong hands, long arms, and real nice size, and has that knack for getting up over everyone and snagging the ball in the air. Terrific body control when going up for the ball. I think a lot of teams are going to forget his small school status and are thinking of snagging him early. I’m not sure the Bills can pass on him at 41. Plays faster than his forty time at the Combine. He has everything you want in a WR prospect expect exceptional experience against top competition. I really like how he ran deep patterns at Appalachian ST, and I really liked how he run the short stuff at the Senior Bowl. Plus, I thought he looked as big and athletic at the Combine as any WR not named Hill. There are  a lot of teams at the top of the 2nd Round who will look foolish passing on this guy. Makes smooth adjustments to the ball. Catches the ball away from his body so naturally it is nice to see. I thought he was very impressive at the Senior Bowl. He is a speed gut who dominated in the vertical game. At the Senior Bowl he shoed he could run patterns, and get open underneath. He showed steady hands, and that he could cut himself open on short patterns. He really showed well at the Senior Bowl. He impressed the coaches with his smarts and hard work in the film room. Which is so important to him, because he has to show he can take that giant step up to the NFL from the small school program. Struggled early at the Senior Bowl, but the most important thing is that he got better every day in every way, and really impressed the coaches. By game time he was ready to play and had a nice game when he got in. Terrific working underneath in the Slot. He has excellent size and hands. He has good fight in him when he has the ball in his hands. He has nice speed, and a real nice burst off the snap. Gets into patterns quickly, and can really close the cushion for such a big guy. I was really surprised by how big he was at the Senior Bowl.

The Reason: They spent the off season trying to destroy their young QB by signing Tebow, and now it's time to get him some help. Wilson can help rest Tebow when he comes out of the game;-).

The Team: First off, if you are any kind of pats; fans you have to be doing jumping jacks over that First Round. Plus, the Pats traded up to shut up all the whiners. Yesterday was a great day in Patriots history. Plus, they amazingly didn't give up either 1st Round Pick. My tapes of both are done, but I haven't gotten them into HTML format or edited yet, I have been for two hours doing this stupid Mock that I can't seem to finish. I am not changing picks any more. 

The Pats just sit here and take the top FS/CB in the Draft. He got his hands on the ball more than anybody in this Draft. Officially 50 times he got his hands on the ball. 

The Player: 4/7 Johnson- Taking a Big Step Up.

The Reason: More Pass defense for Pats.
