Round 1

1) Carolina Panthers: Cameron Newton, QB, Auburn

Draftmaven,com was the first website to mock Cam Newton first overall back in November and if you have been watching draft coverage since the season ended you would have seen Newton jump from a 2nd round pick to a 1st round pick to the top overall pick in many scout's eyes. I absolutely mean to toot my own horn on this one, but Newton is still not a lock. The team's new coach Ron Rivera also is coming from a team that had Phillip Rivers, a guy that compared some to Newton in maturity coming out.

2) Denver Broncos: Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama

Coach Fox loves big DT's and Dareus is a 320 monster that plays like a 290 pounder. The team has been rumored to be taking a QB in the first three rounds (I 100% hope the rumors are not true), but the team cannot throw away Tebow just yet.

3) Buffalo Bills: Von Miller, DE/LB, Texas A&M


Many reports out there will confirm that the Bill like Cam Newton, but there has been little true talk about them loving Blaine Gabbert. I personally think Gabbert should be the pick (I don't like Gabbert, but the organization needs a QB badly).

4) Cincinnati Bengals: AJ Green, WR, Georgia

Not for one second do I believe that Carson Palmer is gone. His retirement threats seem to feel less like a hate for Cincinnati but more a hate for the team doubting him. The team will 'stick with him' by passing on quarterbacks early in the draft while giving him a young weapon like Green. Sure the team could target another player but Green is arguably the best player in the draft and it might just keep Carson around.

5) Arizona Cardinals: Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri

I completely hate having the same top-5 as many of the ESPN/ NFLN faces, but things are starting to come together. I do believe that the Cardinals would rather have a guy like Kevin Kolb on their team, but there is no guarantee that they could get Kolb. They also aren't the type of team that wants to hand out a huge contract to a QB. So why Gabbert? The team likely will pay Gabbert off of a rookie pay scale, which will be much cheaper than the money they will have to hand over to Kolb to make happy. Also, the only other logical pick here would be to take Patrick Peterson who fills one of their top-10 needs (instead of their top need). Finally, if they don't take Gabbert here then they likely would have to hear about it twice a year when they face San Francisco.

6) Cleveland Browns: Julio Jones, WR, Alabama

I looked at Mike Holmgren's draft record with Seattle and in the 11 years that he was there, he selected six offensive players in the first round, and four defensive players in the first round. Three of the four defensive players came after the 20th pick, and the one that didn't was a local talent (and the Seahawks don't mind taking local talent). Five of the first six were also offensive picks, so you can tell that Holmgren ideally likes to find an offense before he finds a defense.

I had Patrick Peterson here for the last two months because he was a good value as the best prospect in the draft even if he would fill a marginal need. But the more I think about it, the more I think that the organization may not like going top-10 CB two years in the round over taking the best WCO receiver in the draft.

7) San Francisco 49ers: Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU

The 49ers have a very good chance to find talent with this 7th pick. Their worst case scenario would be to get either Prince Amukamara or Robert Quinn.

8) Tennessee Titans: Robert Quinn, DE, UNC

The Titans need a big defensive tackle for their offense, but Nick Fairley is not that big. I am not a big fan of Robert Quinn, but getting a guy with his potential could do wonders for the Titans

9) Dallas Cowboys: Nick Fairley, DE/DT, Auburn

Before the Cowboys hate starts rolling in (again), I personally don't see the Cowboys going Tryon Smith here. The Cowboys do need a RT, but the chances that an owner that has never gone OT in the first round goes for a RT (even with the LT potential) in the top-10 is a little bit absurd. Nick Fairley is a DLmen that gets great penetration that would fit in fairly (pun intended) well on the Dallas DL.

10) Washington Redskins: Cameron Jordan, DE/DT, California

If I were the Redskins I would take a discount to trade back some, but given this mock draft the BPA for their needs would possibly be Cam Jordan.

11) Houston Texans: Aldon Smith, DE/LB, Missouri


Like the Browns, I have a hard time seeing any team taking a CB two years in a row. The team needs help there, but it just is unlikely. As you can see in a recent blog article of mine, one of the only logical picks would be to take Aldon Smith.

12) Minnesota Vikings: Tyron Smith, OT, USC

This would be a pretty ideal situation for the Vikings. In this scenario they would have their choice of the top OT, the second best corner, third best QB or a number of impact defensive ends. If I am in the shoes of the organization, I personally would skip out on a QB, DE, or CB here because there is quite a bit of depth throughout, but Tyron Smith is the best OT in a weak class. Assuming that he can move to LT he would allow McKinnie to shift over and Loadholt to move inside, which fixes three + positions on the team.

13) Detroit Lions: Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska

I have been very verbal about the Lions organization this offseason by mocking random guys like Julio Jones, Mark Ingram and Da'Quan Bowers here because if Prince Amukamara is gone then the team would have to significantly reach on CB, LB or Safety. Luckily for Lions fans (and my email inbox), Amukamara slips through this time around.

14) St. Louis Rams: Mike Pouncey, OG, Florida

Personally I wouldn't touch Pouncey with a top-30 pick. He plays one of the least valuable positions to draft, he is in a very deep OG class so you can get a slightly lessor talent in the 4th round, and I'm not sold that he's even that good of a guard. But with that said, a lot of teams really do love Pouncey, and he fills a need for the Rams here. Adding him won't have the impact that a receiver would for Sam Bradford, but Bradford wouldn't be too disappointed with the extra protection.

15) Miami Dolphins: Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas

A slight reach, but mocking for this pick goes under the assumption that the Dolphins couldn't trade back. Given their needs, and who is here they could take a luxury position and grab a lineman, reach on a RB (Ingram's potential injury concerns), or take a QB. Ryan Mallett is the most pro-ready QB in the draft, and the Dolphins have an offensive line that can protect him. The Miami media might not be good for a character like Mallett, but with a kick in the butt Mallett could be the steal of the draft here.

16) Jacksonville Jaguars: Jake Locker, QB, Washington

Gene Smith is a strange drafter. He loves to draft experience, he doesn't mind double-dipping, he goes with his BPA without projecting where the players should go, and in the past he has talked very little (if any) to his first round picks. He is talking a lot with Ryan Kerrigan right now, but looking at all of his usual tendencies I think he goes somewhere else.

17) New England Patriots (From Oak): Coret Luiget, DE/DT, Illinois

The Patriots have a ton of upgrades they need to make in this draft, and they could be looking to upgrade the DE spot with this pick.

18) San Diego Chargers: JJ Watt, DE/DT, Wisconsin

The Chargers are a strange team. They technically had the best defense last year, but they need four or five new weapons on defense.

19) New York Giants: Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College

The Giants have a few key needs, and getting a good OT like Castonzo could mean wonders on the team.

20) Tampa Bay Buccaneers:  Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue

The Bucs reportedly love a few guys, but I think many believe that Kerrigan will be gone by this point.

21) Kansas City Chiefs: Brooks Reed, DE/LB, Arizona

I was never sold on Phil Taylor going to KC, and while I don't believe Taylor's foot crisis will matter I do believe the team could go another way.

22) Indianapolis Colts: Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama

The Colts are not a team that drafts offensive linemen in the first round often. Despite it being a big need they just don't address it, and haven't addressed it in the first round since 1997. The team has, however, addressed the RB position three different times since 1999, and if a talent like Ingram falls to them they would be dumb not to take a look.

23) Philadelphia Eagles: Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado

Jimmy Smith is a top-10 caliber corner that compares to Nnamdi Asomugha, but he has a few character concerns that will likely make his stock fall. The Eagles might be ok with that though.

24) New Orleans Saints: Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson

Da'Quan Bowers has one year of quality experience, but the jump he made from 2009 to 2010 makes many question whether he did it for the contract. That would be just fine, but after playing with a bum knee last season it has recently been revealed that his knees are made of tissue paper, which means he could take a very big fall.

25) Seattle Seahawks: Nate Solder, OT, Colorado


The Seahawks need to find a ton of line depth in this draft and a guy like Solder could add a ton of potential to the mix.

26) Baltimore Ravens: Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin

I really like Carimi in this draft. He isn't a pure LT prospect, but he is a guy that could be shifted over to the left side over time if needed.

27) Atlanta Falcons: Justin Houston, DE, Georgia

The Falcons will take the best player on their board that fits a need. Houston (I believe) is a high character guy that could fit a need on the team.

28) New England Patriots: Akeem Ayers, OLB, UCLA

The Patriots have a ton of needs and they could really use a young rush linebacker.

29) Chicago Bears: Marvin Austin, DT, UNC

The Bears really need to find offensive line and receiver depth, but they needed to do that (and didn't) last year. Austin is a top-10 talent and could be a steal here.

30) New York Jets: Muhammad Wilkerson, DE/DT, Temple

The Jets have a few key needs, and DE/DT is one of them. Wilkerson is loved by a lot of teams, but could fall given all the talent in this draft.

31) Pittsburgh Steelers: Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor

Phil Taylor has a few questions in character, and now one with his foot, but I don't for a second think that many teams are going to drop him significantly off of their draft boards.

32) Green Bay Packers: Jabaal Sheard, DE/LB, Pittsburgh

The Pack has a lot of options to play with on this pick, but getting a valued pass rusher here could add a new dimension to the defense.

JUMP TO ROUND 2

**

Updated 3/25

Jump to:     Round 1      Round 2      Round 3      Round 4        Round 5       Mike's Draft Review     Austin's Mock

ROUND 2

1)    New England (from Carolina):  Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State

I would be willing to bet that the Patriots will trade this pick and I am about 85% certain about it. But for the sake of mocking, Sherrod is the BPA and fits a huge need.

2)  Buffalo Bills: Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada

The Bills reportedly like Cam Newton's potential, and in many ways Kaepernick matches up to Newton. Kaepernick also has arm strength which should set him apart from Ponder/Dalton for a team that needs it like Buffalo.

3)    Cincinnati Bengals: Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois

Rudi Johnson: 5’11, 225 pounds
Kenny Irons: 5’11, 210 pounds
Cedric Benson: 5’11, 227 pounds

Mikel Leshoure: 6’0, 232 pounds

The Bengals may not get Benson re-signed, and even if they do they could be looking for another option. Leshoure is a bruiser with some speed that actually could fit the team well.

4)    Denver Broncos: Bruce Carter, OLB, UNC

Carter would have been a top-20 pick if he hadn't gotten hurt, and he could be a major steal for a team like the Broncos that can afford to have him potentially sit a year to recover.

5)    Cleveland Browns: Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa

Clayborn might fall to the 2nd round given a slowly moving downward spiral happening to his draft stock. As a 2nd round pick here though he fills a need, can start right away, and adds a pass rushing threat throughout this defensive line.

6)    Arizona Cardinals: Ben Ijalana, OT, Villanova

The Cards arguably have the worst offense in football outside of their wide receivers. Even if they avoid the QB position in the first they should seriously consider taking an OT here, but Gabbert and Ijalana could be a fun combo going forward.

7)    Tennessee Titans: Christian Ponder, QB, Florida State

The Titans might be looking for a QB that won't take much grooming and Ponder is one of those guys. He likely won't be much more than a Kyle Orton type of player, but he should be able to fill in well.

8)    Dallas Cowboys: Aaron Williams, CB/S, Texas

The Cowboys need to find multiple replacements in their backfield in this draft and a guy like Aaron Williams could be a great pick. He adds depth at corner, but may also end up being the best safety in the class.

9)    Washington Redskins: Andy Dalton, QB, TCU

I don't quite get the Andy Dalton hype. He is a less talented version of Colt McCoy (who was a 3rd round pick). I'm not counting out teams from reaching on a QB this early, especially if they have Dalton as high on their draft boards as most teams.

10)    Houston Texans: Rahim Moore, S, UCLA

If Moore is gone then I do believe that the pick will be corner, but there is a very good chance that Moore could fall in the laps of the Texans.

11)    Minnesota Vikings: Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame

The Vikings are reportedly looking to replace Visanthe Shiancoe through the draft and they might do it with this pick. The Vikings would much rather find a QB here but they might have to trade up to get one to fall to them at good value.

12)    Detroit Lions: Rodney Hudson, OG/C, Florida State

The Lions need a lot more help on their OL then some will give them, but that's my own opinion. One certain thing is that a guy like Hudson could fit in just about anywhere on the interior.

13)    San Francisco 49ers:  Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State

With so many defensive linemen going early I wouldn't be shocked to see one or two fall this far. Heyward is a late first round prospect that just might not have enough pass rushing technique to get taken early by some teams.

14)    Denver Broncos (from Miami): Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State

Another big DT isn't a perfect fit for the team, but Paea's value is phenomenal here.

15)    St. Louis Rams: Jonathon Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh

The Rams have to find a receiver in the draft to help out Sam Bradford, but they might have to wait until the 2nd round to get good value. Baldwin is talented enough to go to them in the first round, but is a little bit of a diva.

16)    Oakland Raiders: Stefan Wisniewski, OC/G, Penn State
(No first rounder)


This is about the toughest pick in the draft to make. The Raiders always pick off of their own unique draft board, and it is hard to say who will be there for them to take. I personally would take Brandon Harris, Marcus Cannon or a guy like Leonard Hankerson. I will however mock them Stefan Wisniewski who can fit in a number of places on the line.

17)    Jacksonville Jaguars: Martez Wilson, MLB, Illinois

The Jags could possibly take Wilson in the first round, but he could fall to them in the 2nd.

18)    San Diego Chargers: Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky

The Chargers cannot expect to compete in the NFL when you have one of the best QB's and a bunch or injury prone players at receiver.

19)    Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia

Ronde Barber is turning 3,000 years old this year and it might be time to find him a successor.

20)    New York Giants: Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech

The Giants really need to find a runner that they can plug into the mix to enhance the rushing attack on the team.

21)    Indianapolis Colts: Danny Watkins, OG, Baylor

The Colts will be looking for guys that they can plug into the offense right now, and Watkins might be the most pro ready guard in the draft.

22)    Philadelphia Eagles: Marcus Cannon, OT/G, TCU

Cannon is in my big board's top-10 because he is a freakish athlete at nearly 360 pounds. He will give all that he can for his team, and he can contribute right away at guard for the team.

23)    Kansas City Chiefs: Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami

The Chiefs need to find some weapons to help Matt Cassel grow as a QB. Hankerson is a major sleeper in the draft to many, and some think that he is the 3rd best receiver in the class.

24)    New Orleans Saints: James Carpenter, OT, Alabama

The Saints need to find some offensive tackle depth early in the draft if they can.

25)    Seattle Seahawks: Allen Bailey, DE (DE/DT), Florida State

I am trying to understand the Seahawks defensive scheme more this offseason. The team run a 4-3 base defense, but they incorporate elements of the 3-4 in sometimes which include a "leo" defense. While I don't truly understand the LEO, I do know that Allen Bailey is a defensive end that can play in either scheme.

26)    Baltimore Ravens: Brandon Harris, CB, Miami

The Ravens didn't address the corner spot in the last draft, so let's hope they prioritize it this year.

27)    Atlanta Falcons: Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland

The Falcons need a trustworthy receiver across from Roddy White and Smith is great value here. He is a guy that will go up and fight for the ball.

28)    New England Patriots:  Titus Young, WR, Boise State

The Patriots need one or two receivers badly from this draft. Edleman, Price and Slater are not starting (or even 2nd string outside of Edleman) receivers. Tate isn't 1/3 as good as he is hyped, Branch is great but aging and Wes Welker is a stud slot receiver. The team needs it's dangerous receiver threat if it wants to get anywhere in the playoffs.

29)    San Diego (From the NY Jets): Sam Acho, DE/LB, Texas

Yet another defensive tool for an already very good defense.

30)    Chicago Bears: Clint Boling, OT/G, Georgia

There is no doubt in my mind that the Bears need offensive line depth. If I were personally running the team I would look for 3-4 upgrades from the draft, but I'm not 100% sold that this team is going to.

31)    Pittsburgh Steelers: Curtis Brown, CB, Texas

Curtis Brown not only fills a need but is a good overall threat for a team like the Steelers.

32)    Green Bay Packers: Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State

The Packers won the Super Bowl, but Alozo Highsmith won Scout of the Year. Highsmith is a Miami grad that just might have his eye on a guy like Franklin.

JUMP TO ROUND 3

Updated 3/25

Jump to:     Round 1      Round 2      Round 3      Round 4        Round 5       Mike's Draft Review     Austin's Mock

ROUND 3

1) Carolina Panthers: Greg Little, WR, UNC

I would normally not be a fan of surrounding your 1st overall pick who has questionable character with another guy with questionable character, but Greg Little's value here at the top of the third round is pretty good. He would also help to push the rest of the team's underproducing receivers to their fullest.

2) Cincinnati Bengals: Quan Sturdivant, MLB, UNC

The Bengals need to find someone that can replace Dhani Jones, and Quan Sturdivant seems like he'd be willing to learn to tie a bow tie.

3) Denver Broncos: Christian Ballard, DE, Iowa

This is the third defensive lineman for the Broncos, but they arguably could use five different guys to switch through the DL.

4) Buffalo Bills: Marcus Gilbert, OT, Florida


The Bills would be a much better team if they were able to find a day one starter at linebacker, and two potentially great weapons at QB and OT.

5) Arizona Cardinals: Chris Carter, DE/LB

Carter is just one of the many 3-4 rush linebackers that the Cardinals should consider in the mid rounds of the draft.

6) Cleveland Browns: Luke Stocker, TE, Tennessee

The Browns need one or two receiver from this draft, but they could also afford to take a potential stud tight end like Stocker.

7) Dallas Cowboys: James Brewer, OT, Indiana

The Cowboys didn't get Tyron Smith in the 1st round, but getting Brewer here is a good value overall.

8) New Orleans (from Wash): Mason Foster, OLB, Washington

The Saints are a team that doesn't put much value at the LB position, and unfortunately always have a need there.

9) Houston Texans: Davon House, CB, New Mexico State

The team need a corner badly, and few doubt that. But few think that the Texans could wait this long for one like I do.

10) New England (From Minn): Casey Matthews, MLB, Oregon

Yet another weapon for the Pats. Matthews isn't the most athletic guy on the field, but he always seems to be in on the play.

11) Detroit Lions: Quinton Carter, S, Oklahoma

Carter could go easily in the 2nd round, so to get him in the third for a team that needs a safety would be a great value.

12) San Francisco 49ers: Dontay Moch, DE/LB, Nevada

I do feel a little bad about not giving the 49ers a QB in the first three rounds, but if Locker and Mallett go in the first round, then they might get screwed by the natural flow. Luckily there are a number of guys (Devlin, McElroy) that are great fits for the offense.

13) Tennessee Titans: Kendrick Ellis, DT/NT, Hampton

Remember when I gave the Titans Robert Quinn over Nick Fairley because they really actually need a bigger sized DT with force? Well Ellis is 350-pound monster that plays like a 330 pounder. He is a TFL machine and could be Albert Haynesworth 2.0 for the team.

14) St. Louis Rams: Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State

The Rams cannot actually think that Steven Jackson can run as much as he does and stay healthy. Getting a young,  runner to plug into the mix would mean so much for the offense.

15) Miami Dolphins: DJ Williams, TE, Arkansas

I didn't mean to have the Dolphins draft Mallett his college tight end, but he would be a great target on the team, especially if he can learn how to block.

16) Jacksonville Jaguars: DeAndre McDaniel, S, Clemson

The Jags really need to focus on their defensive backfield in this draft, and luckily there will be talent throughout rounds 3-5.

17) Oakland: Chimdi Chekwa, CB, Ohio State


The Raiders needed to have found a way to re-sign Nnamdi Asomugha instead of giving Stanford Routt 6-million too much a year. If Asomugha is gone then the team needs two new safeties and a new corner.

18) San Diego Chargers: Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU

The team has needed to find a consistent option at RT for a few years now and Barksdale could easily fill the hole on offense.

19) New York Giants: Jurrell Casey, DT, USC

The Giants like to take BPA guys and Casey is arguably that guy. He also fills a need.

20) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kelvin Sheppard, MLB, LSU

Rudd is a free agent and the team might be looking to find a replacement for him.

21) Philadelphia Eagles: Greg Jones, LB, Michigan State

The Eagles need to find some LB support, but they don't hold a great value on them.

22) Kansas City Chiefs: Lee Zeimba, OT/G, Auburn

Zeimba is reportedly very high on a number of draft boards at OT, but even if he becomes a guard he would be an ok value here.

23) Indianapolis Colts: Jarvis Jenkins, DT, Clemson

Another year, and another DT for the Colts. The team really needs to learn how to draft/develop their DT's and RB's.

24) New Orleans Saints: Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma State

The Saints might like to find out if Reggie Bush is really worth his salary. Hunter isn't exactly the same prospect, but he does show some similarities.

25) San Diego Chargers (From Sea): Kendric Burney, CB/S, UNC

The Chargers need to find a nickel to compete for the team, but they could also use some depth at safety. Burney is a slow corner with some ball hawking skills, but he'd find his place on the team.

26) Baltimore Ravens: Colin McCarthy, MLB, Miami

There are some teams that are scared about McCarthy's injuries, but the Ravens have some time to allow him to learn and recover.

27) Atlanta Falcons: Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin

The Falcons may prefer to have an offensive lineman with one of their three picks, but tight end is a decent need going forward, and Kendricks' blocking ability would be a plus.

28) New England Patriots: DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma

The Pats don't have a huge need at RB, but with six of the first 100 picks they might just use one of their picks on another weapon to plug into their offense. I am a pretty big fan of Murray's athleticism, and adding an extra weapon is something that the team loves doing.

29) Chicago Bears: Edmund Gates, WR

The Bears won't be looking for big bodied receiver in this draft, and while Jerel Jernigan is a better receiver, he wouldn't add much to the mix that Hester/Knox don't already have a chance to do.

30) New York Jets: Jerel Jernigan, WR, Troy

The Jets could go a number of places with this pick, but Jernigan is a fun guy to watch that would add a fun dimension ot the offense.

31) Pittsburgh Steelers: Shane Vereen, RB, California

The Steelers don't need a new runner, but I think Vereen would be great. Vereen is bowling ball runner that runs hard and through the tacklers.

32) Green Bay Packers: Marcus Gilchrist, CB/S, Clemson

The Packers have few immediate needs, but getting an extra guy in the backfield would be a pretty good idea.

33) Carolina Panthers (comp): Drake Nevis, DT, LSU

The team still has a lot of needs, but getting a talented DT here might be a lock for the 3rd round.

51 (Houston Texans (Comp): "
2012 Mr. Irrelevant" Jerrod Johnson, QB, Texas A&M

This final pick is a little personal to my heart. I have always been very close to picking Mr. Irrelevant, but have never nailed it. For instance last year I picked J'Marcus Webb who was taken in the mid-7th round. This year I have Jerrod Johnson, former QB for Texas A&M on the list.

Many of you will not know this, but at the beginning of the year I thought Johnson had the potential, the stride, and the upside to essentially do what Cam Newton did and become the 1st overall pick. Johnson, however, started out so poorly that he was benched midway though the season. He is my pick this year because he would be a funny "from first to last" story in my book.
