AA 2009 NFL Mock Draft 1.0


This is my first mock draft of the Chiefs off-season and I hope you enjoy (or at least try not to slam me too bad). Of course, things will change once free-agents are signed and teams make organizational decisions, but for now I see the Chiefs trying to replace Jared Allen with the best Defensive End in the draft. This, of course, could all change if we land a free-agent like Suggs or Peppers. I could also see the Chiefs selecting another Offensive Tackle, one of the QBs (depending on who is available), or trading down with the 3rd overall pick.

1Detroit Lions
QB Sam Bradford, Oklahoma – The Lions have to find a signal caller that doesn’t walk out of the endzone. If Bradford comes out look for the Lions to jump on him.
2St. Louis Rams
OT Michael Oher, Ole Miss – Some people like Smith better, but the Rams need a guy that can replace Orlando Pace and I have a feeling Pace might call it
3Kansas City Chiefs
DE Brian Orakpo, Texas – Lets face it Chiefs fans, we set the record for the least amount of sacks in a single season. Unless we sign a big name defensive end FA, I think we have to get a pass rusher. Other options: OL, QB, LB, and Crabtree.
4Seattle Seahawks
WR Michael Crabtree, T-Tech – I know right now he is saying he is coming back, but I don’t believe it. The Seahawks can bring in the biggest playmaker in the draft.
5Cleveland Browns
DE Michael Johnson, G-Tech – The Browns need serious help everywhere on defense and with McGinest deciding to retire they need a pass rusher.. The offense should be back after an injury ridden season.
6Cincinnati Bengals
OT Andre Smith, Alabama – The Bengals get a get what most believe is the best OT in the draft, but his latest suspension could cost him a few slots.
7Oakland Raiders
S Taylor Mays, USC – Al Davis will be in control of this pick and he loves sexy. Taylor Mays is going to be a “sexy” pick. (Did I just say that?)
8Jacksonville Jaguars
CB Malcom Jenkins, Ohio St. – The Jags are one of the worst teams against the pass, but they also could use some help at OL and WR.
9Green Bay Packers
DE Greg Hardy, Ole Miss – The Packers had a rough year rushing the QB, which really exposed their aging corners.
10San Francisco 49ers
QB Matt Stafford, Georgia – The 49ers are desperate to find a QB because their crop of QBs haven’t exactly panned out. Stafford drops a little and its good news for the Niners.
11Buffalo Bills
DE Everette Brown, FSU – The Bills could use another pass rusher, especially Aaron Schobel can’t comeback to be the same guy.
12Denver Broncos
LB Rey Maualuga, USC – This is not good news for the Chiefs. Since the Broncos got bounced from the playoffs they get somewhat of a reward for missing out.
13Washington Redskins
OT Eugene Monroe, V-Tech – The Redskins need to protect Jason Campbell more and Monroe will be a nice guy to add to the line. This pick will make even more sense if Jansen is let go.
14New Orleans Saints
LB Aaron Curry, Wake Forest – The Saints need help on defense and they could potentially get the best LB in the draft at 14. Curry can play either inside or outside LB.
15Houston Texans
WR Percy Harvin, Florida – The Texans offense could use another playmaker like Harvin. Add him to Schaub, AJ, Daniels, Slaton, and Walters this could be a scary offense.
16San Diego Chargers
LB James Laurinaitis, Ohio St. – The Chargers have been woeful against the run and the pass compared to previous seasons. Laurinaitis will help sure up a defense that struggled in ’08.
17New York Jets
CB Vontae Davis, Illinois – The Jets could use a little bit everywhere on defense. Davis I believe is the best player on the board so why not grab him?
18Chicago Bears
WR Jeremy Maclin, Missouri – Can you imagine having Hester and Maclin on both sides of your offense. Maclin is a better true WR, but Hester is developing his skills. (If Harvin and Maclin are available I see them taking Harvey)
19Tampa Bay Buccaneers
RB Chris Wells, Ohio St. – Gruden loves running backs and Wells is the best on the board. Cadilliac’s career could be over and Graham is coming back from injury.
20Detroit Lions
(9-7, Pick via Cowboys)
OT Ciron Black, LSU – The Lions will need to keep adding to their defensive line if they pick a QB first.
21Arizona Cardinals
C Alex Mack, Cal – The Cardinals could benefit from adding another top OL. Mack will be a great center for years to come and help the Cardinals running game.
22Philadelphia Eagles
OT Eben Britton, Arizona – Tra Thomas and Jon Runyan could possibly be free-agents the Eagles will need an OT. I see maybe one re-signing, but not both.
23Minnesota Vikings
CB Victor Harris, V-Tech – The Vikings need help in their secondary and Harris could be an immediate impact.
24New England Patriots
CB Trevard Lindley, Kentucky – The Patriots missed Asante Samuel this year and they need to address their secondary problems. They could also look at William Moore.
25Atlanta Falcons
DT Terrrance Tyler, Michigan – The Eagles are ranked last in playoff teams against the run. They have been great in December, but you can never have to many DTs.
26Miami Dolphins
CB DJ Moore, Vanderbilt – The Dolphins secondary have struggled all season long. I think they could look for a WR or LB later in the draft, but they need to adress their secondary first.
27Baltimore Ravens
DE George Selvie, South Florida – The Ravens might have to replace Suggs and Selvie is a guy that could potentially do that.
28Indianapolis Colts
DT Al Woods, LSU – The Colts could use some extra beef on their DL and Woods can bring that to them.
29Philadelphia Eagles
(12-4; Pick via Panthers)
WR Derrius Heyward Bey, Maryland – Jackson was a nice addition to the Eagles offense, but I don’t believe he could ever be a #1 WR. Thats why the Eagles need to bring a big target for McNabb or whoever.
30Pittsburgh Steelers
OG Duke Robinson, Oklahoma – There is a reason why Big Ben is more beat up this year than any of his previous seasons. Faneca is not there and the line has gotten worse.
31New York Giants
DE/OLB Clint Sintim, Virgina – The Giants need help on their defensive line which has gotten very tired towards the end of the season. Plus they could move Sintim around.
32Tennessee Titans
DT BJ Raji, Boston College – The Titans might have to consider losing Haynesworth to free agency, but even if he stays addind Raji will make this defense even better.
