McShay's 1st Round Mock

Postby widetrak21 » Wed Jan 10, 2007 11:36 am

Much will change in the coming months, as underclassmen officially declare and players take part in postseason all-star games, individual workouts and the scouting combine, but here is our initial first-round mock for the 2007 NFL draft:

x -- Still to be determined by coin flip
y -- Still to be determined by playoffs
+ -- Underclassman

1. Oakland Raiders (2-14)
Projected pick: +JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU
Russell vs. Brady Quinn? Let the great debate begin. Most teams have Quinn ahead of Russell, but Raiders owner Al Davis could fall in love with Russell's size and deep arm.

2. Detroit (3-13)
Projected pick: Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame
The Lions will be stoked if Quinn falls to them at No. 2. Wouldn't it be great, though, if Matt Millen takes another wide receiver (Calvin Johnson) with this pick?

3t. x-Cleveland (4-12)
Projected pick: +Alan Branch, DT, Michigan
The Browns want Russell with this pick, but they'll settle for a 330-pound playmaker to help solidify Romeo Crennel's three-man defensive front.

3t. x-Tampa Bay (4-12)
Projected pick: +Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech
The Bucs have other more pressing needs, but coach Jon Gruden can't pass on the draft's most dynamic offensive weapon.

5. Arizona (5-11)
Projected pick: Joe Thomas, OT, Wisconsin
As usual, the Cardinals are a prime candidate to trade down. They should get lots of bidders if Thomas -- the only elite offensive lineman in this class -- is still available.

6. Washington (5-11)
Projected pick: Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson
Adams is a no-brainer for a Redskins defense that set a team record for the fewest sacks in a season (19) in 2006.

7. Minnesota (6-10)
Projected pick: +Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas
It's hard to believe the Vikings still need defensive end help, but Erasmus James suffered a season-ending injury in the opener and Kenechi Udeze failed to notch a sack. Anderson is the complete package physically and he should capitalize on 13.5 sacks as a junior in 2006.

8. Houston (6-10)
Projected pick: +Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma
Peterson is expected to make his decision to bolt for the NFL in the next few days. Drafting Peterson here would help to overshadow the Texans' colossal mistake of passing on Reggie Bush with the top overall pick last year.

9. Miami (6-10)
Projected pick: Leon Hall, CB, Michigan
The Dolphins could consider QB Brian Brohm with this pick, but they also could go the free-agency route in order to get short-term relief. Hall would be a good value here and would help upgrade a patchwork secondary.

10. Atlanta (7-9)
Projected pick: LaRon Landry, S, LSU
Landry is a ball-hawk free safety who would instantly upgrade the athleticism of the Falcons secondary.

11. San Francisco (7-9)
Projected pick: +Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
Dorsey might not fall this far, but the 49ers certainly wouldn't protest such a scenario. Dorsey is a disruptive force as a one-gap penetrating interior lineman.

12. Buffalo (7-9)
Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville
Projected pick: The Bills have more pressing needs, including cornerback and middle linebacker. However, Okoye is a fast-rising 19-year-old with great potential.

13. St. Louis (8-8)
Projected pick: Adam Carriker, DE, Nebraska
Carriker, a quick and powerful 290-pound defensive end, could be a good complement opposite DE Leonard Little.

14. Carolina (8-8)
Projected pick: +Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
The Panthers need help at middle linebacker, left tackle, safety and tight end, but it also might be time to address life after QB Jake Delhomme. If Brohm elects to leave school early, he should be taken somewhere between picks No. 10 and 20.

15. Pittsburgh (8-8)
Projected pick: Quentin Moses, DE/OLB, Georgia
Moses' stock is dropping after a subpar senior year, but it will spike once he works out at the combine next month.

16. Green Bay (8-8)
Projected pick: +Marshawn Lynch, RB, Cal
QB Brett Favre could help maximize Lynch's explosiveness and versatility if they're working in the same backfield in 2007.

17. Jacksonville (8-8)
Projected pick: +Ted Ginn Jr., WR/RS, Ohio State
Ginn Jr. has a tough decision to make after injuring his ankle in the first quarter of the BCS title game. Assuming he turns pro, the Jaguars could use his speed. Despite spending first-round picks on the position in 2004 (Reggie Williams) and 2005 (Matt Jones), no Jaguar finished in the NFL's top 50 in catches.

18. Cincinnati (8-8)
Projected pick: Tank Tyler, DT, N.C. State
Tyler had a monster season as a senior, and his combination of power and quickness would help upgrade the Bengals' ailing defensive front.

19. Tennessee (8-8)
Projected pick: +Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC
Jarrett is a dynamic playmaker with extraordinary hand-eye coordination, but he might not run well enough to land a spot in the top 15. However, the former Trojans receiver could make quite a team with the former Longhorns quarterback (Vince Young) in Tennessee.

20. N.Y. Giants (8-8)
Projected pick: +Darrell Revis, CB, Pittsburgh
The Giants must upgrade their cover-corner situation, and Revis displays the athleticism and ball skills to fit their needs. Revis will compete for the second cornerback taken behind Hall in this year's class.

21. Denver (9-7)
Projected pick: Daymeion Hughes, CB, Cal
The tragic passing of Darrent Williams will force the Broncos to re-evaluate their personnel needs this offseason.

22. Dallas (9-7)
Projected pick: +Reggie Nelson, S, Florida
Nelson, a speedy center fielder with excellent ball skills, would provide an ideal complement next to hard-hitting S Roy Williams.

23. Kansas City (9-7)
Projected pick: +Sidney Rice, WR, South Carolina
Rice's draft stock could fluctuate greatly depending on his postseason workouts. Assuming he grades out as a late first-round prospect, the Chiefs would welcome his pass-catching services on the perimeter.

24. y-New England (from Seattle)
Projected pick: +Jarvis Moss, DE/OLB, Florida
Moss is an undersized pass-rushing end who would fit well as an outside linebacker in the Patriots' 3-4 defensive scheme. Plus, Bill Belichick obviously has a thing for Gators players.

25. y-N.Y. Jets (10-6)
Projected pick: Kenny Irons, RB, Auburn
Irons' draft stock is plummeting after a disappointing senior campaign. However, don't be surprised if he works his way back into the first round by running well and checking out physically at next month's combine. The Jets might be desperate enough to take a gamble.

26. y-New Orleans (10-6)
Projected pick: Marcus McCauley, CB, Fresno State
The Saints need lots of help on defense, and selecting McCauley would be a step in the right direction. McCauley is raw but he's also a 6-foot-1 cornerback with 4.3-second speed in the 40-yard dash.

27. y-Philadelphia (10-6)
Projected pick: +Lawrence Timmons, OLB, Florida State
Timmons is unpolished, but he's a big hitter with great speed for his size.

28. y-New England (12-4)
Projected pick: Jeff Samardzija, WR, Notre Dame
Samardzija could easily slip out of the first round due to his desire to play both baseball (Cubs) and football professionally. The Patriots should be "in the know" thanks to their old buddy Charlie Weis.

29. y-Indianapolis (12-4)
Projected pick: Patrick Willis, ILB, Ole Miss
The Colts' run defense was abysmal during the regular season, so drafting a one-man wrecking crew like Willis makes a lot of sense with this pick. Willis notched 265 tackles during his final three seasons at Ole Miss.

30. y-Chicago (13-3)
Projected pick: Levi Brown, OT, Penn State
Brown could slip after a disappointing senior season, but it's still tough to find a tackle with his combination of size and agility.

31. y-Baltimore (13-3)
Projected pick: LaMarr Woodley, DE/OLB, Michigan
The Ravens could use a youth influx at linebacker, and Woodley would be a good fit thanks to his experience playing in a similar hybrid 3-4/4-3 defensive scheme at Michigan.

32. y-San Diego (14-2)
Projected pick: Dwayne Bowe, WR, LSU
A young weapon like Bowe at wide receiver could take an already-potent Chargers offense to the next level.

By Mel Kiper Jr.

The bowl season is coming to an end, but that doesn't necessarily translate to changes on my Top 25 Big Board. In fact, the 25 players this week haven't changed; however, you will see significant movement once underclassmen officially declare for April's NFL draft. The NFL doesn't release the official list until Jan. 19, so you won't see underclassmen appear on the Big Board until Jan. 22.

1. Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame (6-3½, 225) | previous: Same
Poised, smart and at his best in pressure situations. Quinn did throw two interceptions in Sugar Bowl after throwing just one INT in his previous eight games.

2. Joe Thomas, OT, Wisconsin (6-6½, 313) | previous: Same
Huge, quick and athletic with a long wingspan.

3. Leon Hall, CB, Michigan (5-11, 193) | previous: Same
Tough customer who also shows very good anticipation and awareness in coverage. Hall leads the Wolverines with three interceptions.

4. Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson (6-4½, 260) | previous: Same
Flashes dominating ability with his athleticism and quickness. Adams leads the Tigers with 10½ sacks and 15½ tackles for loss.

5. Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville (6-1½, 298) | previous: Same
A four-year veteran, and he is only 19 years old. Okoye is quick and explosive and goes all-out on every play. He is not only good at eating up space but also gets good penetration into the backfield. He's second on the Cardinals in both sacks and tackles for loss.

6. LaRon Landry, DB, LSU (6-1½, 205) | previous: Same
Four-year starter who has proven to be Mr. Reliable throughout his career. Landry lead LSU with 42 solo tackles.

7. Quinn Pitcock, DT, Ohio St. (6-3, 297) | previous: Same
Run-stuffing dynamo who does a great job of clogging the interior.

8. Adam Carriker, DE, Nebraska (6-6, 298) | previous: Same
You just don't see many defensive ends carrying 300 pounds who can move as well as Carriker.

9. Tony Ugoh, OT, Arkansas (6-5, 308) | previous: Same
Ugoh's stock has been rising all year to the point where he's one of the more intriguing senior prospects in the nation.

10. Jeff Samardzija, WR, Notre Dame (6-4½, 215) | previous: Same
Super hands and concentration with outstanding speed-to-size ratio. He caught a touchdown pass in the final five games of the season.

11. DeMarcus "Tank" Tyler, DT, NC State (6-2¼, 310) | previous: Same
Extremely quick and very powerful. A player on the rise, Taylor has been a one-man wrecking crew on the defensive line for the Wolfpack.

12. Ryan Kalil, C, USC (6-2½, 292) | previous: Same
His performance during the latter stages of his career has been that of a first- or second-round draft choice.

13. Dwayne Bowe, WR, LSU (6-2, 217) | previous: 15
Big and productive, Bowe runs excellent routes and has the toughness to catch the ball in traffic.

14. Quentin Moses, DE, Georgia (6-4, 254) | previous: 23
Mature, hardworking and explosive off the edge. Moses is second on the Bulldogs with 10½ tackles for loss.

15. Levi Brown, OT, Penn St. (6-4½, 325) | previous: 17
Steady and reliable at protecting the quarterback's blind side.

16. Tim Crowder, DE, Texas (6-3¼, 273) | previous: Same
Consistent and reliable in his career, and he has become more of a playmaker for the Longhorns in 2006.

17. Marcus McCauley, CB, Fresno St. (6-0½, 200) | previous: 18
He has the size and speed (4.33 40-yard dash) with outstanding coverage technique.

18. Anthony Spencer, DE, Purdue (6-2½, 261) | previous: 19
He has become a much more effective pass-rusher this season for the Boilermakers. The key at the next level will be his athleticism and versatility, because I project he would be an ideal outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense.

19. Patrick Willis, LB, Mississippi (6-2, 235) | previous: 20
Tackling machine with great football sense. Willis lead the Rebels with 137 tackles (87 solo).

20. Turk McBride, DT, Tennessee (6-3, 277) | previous: 13
McBride is a quality athletic talent with dual versatility for the next level, only adding to his value. Week to week, he's one of the more productive defensive linemen in the nation. McBride is fourth on the team with 64 tackles, including eight tackles for loss and five QB hurries.

21. Daymeion Hughes, CB, California (6-0, 187) | previous: Same
Big-play cornerback for the Golden Bears. Finished strong in 2005 and it carried over to this season. Hughes has eight interceptions, tied for third in Division I-A.

22. Troy Smith, QB, Ohio State (6-0, 213) | previous: Same
A consummate winner, Smith performed at his best on the biggest stages. (See his 3-0 record against Michigan, a bowl win over Notre Dame and road win this season at Texas.) He's a great player who makes those around him better, and he has a great ability to keep plays alive with his mobility. His arm strength is excellent and if he was two or three inches taller, Smith would be talked about as a top-five pick.

23. Ikaika Alama-Francis, DE, Hawaii (6-5, 265) | previous: 24
Alama-Francis didn't play football until his redshirt freshman season at Hawaii. (He was recruited to play basketball.) He's a late-developing standout in Jerry Glanville's defense who has great overall strength to consistently hold up against the run.

24. Craig Davis, LSU, WR, LSU (6-1¼, 200) | previous: 25
Possesses outstanding speed (4.35 40-yard dash) to go along with his size. Davis was steady and reliable for most of his career, then took his game to a new level late in the season for the Tigers.

25. LaMarr Woodley, DE, Michigan (6-1½, 269) | previous: 14
Combination DE/OLB with a hustling approach and disruptive capabilities. Woodley leads Michigan in sacks (12) and tackles for loss (16½).

Already in
Here are the 11 eligible underclassmen who have made their decisions to enter the 2007 NFL draft public thus far:

Stanley Doughty, DT, South Carolina: Saw playing time reduced due to work ethic and weight issues. He also left school without notifying coaches before the Liberty Bowl. High-risk plus low-reward will equal "undrafted" free agent status for Doughty.

Chris Henry, RB, Arizona A surprise early entry, Henry rushed for a team-high 581 yards and seven touchdowns this season. He's a straight-line runner with good size but limited elusiveness. He projects as a second-day pick.

Charles Johnson, DE, Georgia Late-first round prospect wasted little time making his decision. He could have benefited from another season in college, but he out-played teammate Quentin Moses by notching 19 tackles for loss, including 9.5 sacks this season.

Rory Johnson, OLB, Ole Miss: Surprise addition to the 2007 class. Former junior college transfer finished second on the team in tackles behind first-round prospect Patrick Willis (ILB). Johnson projects as a second-day pick.

Marshawn Lynch, RB, California There was very little suspense leading up to Lynch's decision to turn pro. Durability and inconsistency could cause him to drop a bit, but Lynch is too explosive and versatile to slip out of the top 20 picks overall.

Greg Olsen, TE, Miami-Fla.: A strong finish to his junior season combined with a weak senior class of tight ends led to Olsen's quick decision to enter the 2007 draft. Olsen has the size and athleticism to warrant late first-round consideration.

Luke Smith-Anderson, TE, Idaho: Nothing more than a free-agent prospect with reliable hands but a laundry list of durability issues. He missed nearly three full seasons to knee (2002-'03) and spleen (2005) injuries.

Lawrence Timmons, OLB, Florida State: Came into his own as a first-year starter this fall. Still had room to improve at the collegiate level, but Timmons is athletic and fast enough to warrant consideration in the first two rounds.

Danny Ware, RB, Georgia: Unhappy with his playing time at Georgia, Ware has elected to throw his hat into the NFL ring. He has good size and has flashed some talent, but inconsistency and durability issues will make him a late-round pick.

Dwayne Wright, RB, Fresno State: First-day talent will slip to fourth or fifth round due to injury history (knee).

Eric Wright, CB, UNLV: Under-the-radar prospect with impressive natural coverage skills and value as a return specialist. He could work his way into the first round with a strong showing in the next few months.

To do a little mock projected, what would everyone say are our top 3 position needs? I would imagine two of the biggest decisions that affect the D are: Jimmy CB or S? 43 or 34?

On D -
ballhawking/playmaking S or another CB (jimmy sit. decides)
DE/hybrid DE-LB (scheme decides)

On O -
OLINE (HAS to be addressed!)
WR - if we can get someone of any value later in the draft

So for me I'd say, S/CB, DE/hybrid, Oline. I'd lean towards Landry or Nelson first, I think we lack someone to help DHall is the secondary (plus we know he's not there yet himself). Now getting out of the zone might cure a lot of this, but I'm just not sure Crockers "the guy" long term. When I see the STaylor's, BSanders, EReed's and other hawking S's, it makes me want one bad.

DE is another position that pretty much demands you spend a high pick to get someone worth their mettle.

Oline, this is my true first choice, but I still don't see us going there in the first. But every round after that could go here and I wouldn't blink twice.

I got to watch a bit of Levi Brown the other day, and I wasn't too impressed. He's a good blocker that moves well for his size, but for his size and the fact that most are considering him a Top 15 OL, he's not as physically dominating as you would think. One draft site said that he lacks a mean streak, and I tend to agree with him. At Penn State, they play in a zone-blocking heavy scheme.
