Ok, here is my third and final mock draft. With any real draft, you always get curves balls thrown at you like the Buffalo Bills choosing Donte Willner way earlier than anyone expected. Then you have the Detroit Lions and Matt Millen who somehow hasn’t gotten the idea of how to build a team through the draft. Hint Matt, you build it from the inside out (defensive and offensive lineman first, wide receivers second). Still, I can’t see him not selecting Calvin Johnson with the second pick. At that point he could trade him to either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Atlanta Falcons who have two 2nd round draft choices and the 8th pick in the first round. Needless to say, it will be an interesting day on Saturday, if you are an NFL fan like me.
||Not the best player, but a definite need pick.
||May be the best WR selected since Jerry Rice. Has it all. Will very likely be traded after pick.
||I think he will be better than Russell over time.
||Tampa Bay Buccaneers
||A definite need for Tampa Bay. They may also trade this pick to the Lions for Johnson.
||Safe pick and a desperate need pick.
||They will trade down. Guaranteed. If Quinn is available, bet the house on that scenario.
||Trade rumors abound.
||This is the team that will consummate a trade with either the Lions or the Redskins.
||They would love Quinn or better yet, trade up in the second round for Trent Edwards of Stanford.
||Even though I don’t really like him in the NFL, they desperately need to take a running back here.
||San Francisco 49ers
||One of the best people in the draft.
||If the 49ers take Willis, then the Bills reach for Lynch.
||St. Louis Rams
||They need help on the D-line and he is the real deal.
||Poor Jets, no TE in the first round this year.
||Joey Porter gone, Lawrence Timmons in.
||Green Bay Packers
||Ted Ginn Jr.
||Farve needs more weapons and this guy can flat out fly.
||Questions about his attitude abound but no doubting his physical talent.
||Lockdown CB would immensely help the Bengals.
||A marketing bonanza and a definite need pick.
||New York Giants
||They’d rather have Timmons but Posluszny will do.
||The Broncos would do back flips if Carricker lands to them at 21. Branch may be the pick here if the Jaguars pass on him.
||A perfect fit for the Cowboys.
||Kansas City Chiefs
||Could be a great #2 wide receiver in the NFL.
||New England Patriots
||Versatility is the Patriots motto and this guy has it. A trade though is highly likely
||New York Jets
||Got the instincts and aggression that Mangini loves.
||A good pickup this late in the round
||New Orleans Saints
||Not the biggest need but this is a good value pick
||New England Patriots
||I think they will trade out of this spot but if not, another great pick by the Pats.
||Another probable trade, possibly with Miami, but the Ravens sure could use a good young QB
||San Diego Chargers
||I think this guy will have a better NFL career than teammate Dwayne Jarrett
||Boy do they need another WR in their offense
||The Colts would absolutely flip if this guy lands here. Alan Branch may also fall all the way here.
