Just a reminder, here are the rules:

--We do all 7 rounds. There will be a 12 hour time limit for each selection.

--If you think you may not be around when your pick comes up, please PM a priority list to myself, Hawk's Boys, and Eddie Mac. We will make sure to get your pick in for you.

--Trades are definetly IN. Trades that both parties agree to just need to get PMed to myself or anyone helping me run the draft, just so we can change the order.

--As far as having more than 32 participate, that's fine. Any owner who would like to have a co-owner can PM them after the original 32 owners are set. Unfortunatley, not everyone will be able to participate. Nature of the Foneco I'm afraid.

-- If owners wanted to trade teams that would be swell. Just let me know.

--After you post your selection, PLEASE POST THE TIME YOU MADE YOUR SELECTION, AND WHAT TIME ZONE YOU ARE IN. That's very important because it helps us know when the next team is on the clock. Also, if you could PM the next GM and tell them that they are on the clock, that's very helpful to myself, Hawk's Boys, and Eddie Mac, just in case we're not around.

--Please leave trade discussions, praise, ridicule, and conversations about your picks in the conversation thread.

Alright....

Considering I may not be able to get on here tomorrow... Here we go!

With the 1st pick of the 2008 OM Mock Draft The Miami Dolphins select


Chris Long (DE)

Height: 6'4"
Weight: 275
College: Virginia


Analysis
Positives: Has long arms and large hands, with good upper body muscle tone, tight waist and hips and shows good lower body thickness...Uses his long reach well to keep blockers away from his body, also utilizing it, along with good timing and leaping ability to bat down a fair share of passes at the line of scrimmage...What sets him apart from most young defensive ends is his keen knowledge of the game and his uncanny ability to read block pressure and quickly locate the ball...Quick-twitch athlete who shows good quickness, agility and flexibility, showing good knee bend...Builds to top acceleration nicely in long pursuit and shows good redirection skills in his pass rush off the edge...Lacks an explosive burst, but has good leverage and reach to separate from blocks and close on the quarterback...Shows solid football instincts and is able to learn and retain information easily, showing the quick instincts to locate the ball through trash...Plays and practices hard and with a purpose, showing good effort and toughness throughout the play...Leads by example, as well as with his voice, as the coaches encourage the younger players to emulate his great work ethic...Can handle tough coaching and is harder on himself than the staff is when he fails to make a play or blows an assignment...Has active hands and feet, showing outstanding quickness off the ball and natural movement ability to close...Comes off the snap with good pad level, getting into the blocker quickly with a solid hand jolt to rock the opponent back on his heels (needs to do a better job of staying on the lead blocker to clog the rush lane, though)...Has very crisp plant-and-drive agility to make quick change of direction moves working down the line...One of his better assets is his lateral agility...Has a good feel for blocks and knows what to do to avoid in pursuit...Defends the run well, using his hands and extending at the point-of-attack, as he has the hand punch to quickly shed blockers and has developed into an efficient, physical, hip-roll tackler working in-line... When he extends his arms (and keeps them active), he plays with good leverage and can hold ground at the point of attack vs. the isolated blocker (struggles some vs. double-teams)...Has better leverage than strength to anchor, knowing how to use his lower body...Has enough size and strength to hold up at the point-of-attack and the flexibility to sit in the crease and hold his ground or get off blocks...When he keeps his hands inside the framework, he can keep separation from the blocker (exposes his chest when his hands get too wide)...Moves very well laterally and displays good effort in pursuit, as he has the knee bend to slip by blockers in-line...High energy type who had better success disengaging in 2007 than he did in the past, thanks to clearing his feet and chasing hard to run down plays in pursuit...Shows adequate flexibility to fight off cut blocks (needs to protect feet better still, but has improved), as he takes good angles when pursuing downfield...Physical tackler who can bend, roll his hips and drive through the ballcarrier...Might not generate explosive hits, but he has the strength to push the pocket...Makes a good effort to arm tackle...His above average lateral quickness is utilized well in his back-side pursuit...Does a good job when asked to wrap up and drag down the ballcarrier in space and he has the functional strength to generate inside pressure vs. offensive line-man's outside shoulder...Shows good body lean coming off the snap and has developed a solid inside counter move to generate pressure...Has the upfield speed, along with swim and rip moves to go with the inside counter and bull rush (asset needed for a potential move to defensive tackle)...Uses flexibility and a good burst to collapse the pocket and displays the quick hands and feet, along with good hip-flex to turn the corner on edge rushes...Can keep separation vs. the run when he uses his hands to control, and when he takes dead aim on the quarterback he shows good intent to get there...With his leverage, he can beat the blocker in and out to close on the passer, as he demonstrates good hand placement and the ability to separate from blockers.


Negatives: Lacks suddenness off the snap to surprise a lethargic blocker...Best when taking angles to the quarterback, as he does not have the foot speed to take the wide loop in pursuit...Needs to be more active with his hands, especially when executing counter moves, as he struggles to shed when a blocker locks on to his jersey...Susceptible to the low block and needs to do a better job of slipping off double teams (must execute his spin move more)...Might be a better fit as a defensive tackle in a 4-3 alignment, so as not to expose his adequate closing burst...Does not use his reach or counter moves with consistency and can be engulfed by the larger blockers...Plays better on the move (can get stuck on the bigger blockers at the X's).

Default pick made at 12:42 pm central


The Cincinnati Bengals select Derrick Harvey, Defensive End, Florida.

Ht. 6'-5", Wt. 271 lbs.
Wingspan: 82"
Bench: 31 reps


Harvey surprised many when he decided not to enter the 2007 NFL draft. He led the Gators with 11 sacks -- the fifth-highest single-season total in school history -- and capped the season off with a three-sack effort in Florida's rout of Ohio State in the BCS national championship game. He also had another tackle and recovered a fumble against the Buckeyes to earn defensive MVP honors. He was projected as a first-round pick by some analysts.

Harvey, however, felt he needed another season to develop -- he didn't begin playing football until his junior year of high school -- and started an extensive offseason training program that paid dividends this past season. He overcame being the focus of opposing offensive lines to amass 49 tackles -- 31 solo -- with 17 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks, which were both team-best totals.

Harvey is simply a beast as a pass rusher, with his speed equal to his strength. He is known for getting great jumps off the ball and his technique is exceptional. He puts the heat on offensive linemen and virtually demands to be double-teamed. While his ability to get in the backfield draws the most raves, he's also solid against the run. Opponents lost 28 yards on 47 running plays to his side last season. The 82-inch wingspan rarely allows escapes for opposing ball carriers and quarterbacks.

An AFC East scout, who asked not to be identified because of his team's media policy, said Harvey "is a much better player" than former Gator Jarvis Moss.

Positives: Has a well-defined frame with thick legs and arms, along with room on his upper body to add more bulk (looks a bit like a strong safety)...Active and aggressive closing on the ball, but needs to show quicker recovery ability when he out-runs the play...Does a good job of keeping plays in front of him, running with a normal stride while showing the ability to quickly accelerate and close on the ball...Has good foot quickness, agility, balance and body control on contact, staying low in his pads to prevent the opponent from slipping off his hits (when he wrap tackles, but has had problems when he takes a side)...Average student, but shows urgency closing on the ball once he locates it...Physical tackler who uses his hands with authority to get to the ball...Hard worker in the training program and is the team leader in the locker room and in practices...Will chase until the whistle and is a heavy hitter once he gets into position to make the play...Has good balance sifting through trash, staying on his feet through trash and bounces up quickly when knocked down...Shows aggressiveness and quickness to step up and take on the runner between the tackles, as well as the ability to stack blockers in one-on-one situations...Best making plays on the move (can be washed out of the play when he tries to battle when stationary)...Does not read keys all the time, but will move and close once he sees the play develop...While he lacks power to split double teams (will get pushed), he works hard to fill the rush lanes...Has enough functional strength to drag the ballcarrier down and will not hesitate to take on the lead blocker in attempts to clog the rush lanes...Uses his hands well to reroute and combat tight ends, showing active hands to control and shed blockers...Has played in a three-point stance earlier in his career and knows how to keep his pads down to gain position...Needs to attack the line of scrimmage more often than he did as a senior, but he does work well through traffic, showing desire and quick acceleration to reach the outside...Can drop in the zone with his head on a swivel, but will get fooled by play-action and pump fakes and does just an adequate job of looking up receivers, but the effort is there...Needs to do a better job of staying in control when tackling, but has enough arm strength to drag the ballcarrier down (likes to arm tackle and take angles)...Has the quickness to run with backs and tight ends in the short-area passing game, using his hands well to reroute...Lacks great anticipation in man coverage, but will accelerate and close when he locates the ball...Can get a good jump on the route, when he does not eye the quarterback too long...Has the leaping ability to compete for jump balls...Will guess at the receiver's routes at times, but he has the hip snap and body flexibility to recover...Uses his hands well to get an edge over the outside shoulder of an offensive tackle in the pass rush and is quick to accelerate to take a wide loop to the passer (fast off the edge to surprise a lethargic blocker, but must not get in one-on-one battles with those linemen, as he struggles to shed when engulfed).


Negatives: Lacks the lower body strength to gain much penetration on the bull rush and will struggle to shed vs. the bigger blockers, especially vs. double-team action...Must use his hands better when fending off blocks and when they get outside his framework, he leaves himself too exposed and linemen then have success locking on, as he loses his anchor and is quickly washed out of the play...Has the quickness to close in a hurry, but will lose sight of the ball in a crowd and must do a better job sifting through trash...Has the loose hips to drop back in pass coverage, but is a bit of a liability here as he is susceptible to pump fakes and will eye the quarterback too long, letting receivers gobble up his cushion...Needs to have a clear path to the quarterback, as he has been exposed for strength issues when trying to shoot the gaps (gets ping-ponged by the bigger blockers, especially when he fails to keep his anchor and narrows his base)...Gets a bit reckless in his pursuit and despite having loose hips, he will take false steps in his recovery...Tries to make the big play on the ball rather than wrap and secure the ballcarriers at times...Has a good burst on the blitz, but is slow to locate the quarterback and will out-run the passer, as he has just adequate stop-and-go action...Needs to improve his wrap-tackle technique, as he will ankle bite at times and fail to attack the outside leg of the runner...Just an adequate student and might have problems digesting a complicated playbook.


Compares To: KENDRELL BELL-Kansas City...Rivers might have garnered lots of postseason honors in 2007, but there was something amiss in his play. He is not the most instinctive open-field tackler and seemed to be favoring his nagging ankle problems, thus limiting his range and pursuit skills. Five tackles behind the line of scrimmage do not warrant first-team All-American honors. He has the frame that you look for in an outside linebacker, along with the quickness, but there are legitimate questions as to whether he has the valid instincts or lower body power to be an every-down player. Like Bell, he can make the big play, but there needs to be more consistency in his play. With a marginal feel for the passing game, especially when working in the zone, the jury is out on this guy, much like it has been on Bell since earlier in his career. Can this be the "boom or bust" pick of the 2008 linebacker class?

Injury Report
2005: Suffered a hamstring strain prior to the Washington game (10/22) that forced him to sit out vs. Stanford (11/05)...Re-injured his hamstring vs. Fresno State (11/19), missing the UCLA clash (12/03).


2007: Underwent left ankle surgery to remove bone spurs in spring camp...Suffered a left ankle sprain vs. California (11/10), sitting out the following week vs. Arizona State (11/22).

The rumor is that New Orleans will sign Asante Samuel at the start of the free agency period, solving their CB problem. Even if they don't, the selection of cornerbacks at the 10 slot isn't stellar, and Rivers is by far the best defensive player left on the board.

After much deliberation and arguments which led to the subsequent firing of Mike Shanahan, the Denver Broncos select with the 12th pick of the 2008 NFL draft.

RYAN CLADY OT BOISE STATE

Ryan is the best pure LT in this draft. He has good lateral agility and the athleticism to play his position. He has good size and is just as good blocking for the run as he is for the pass. Ryan looks like a smart kid and shows good mental toughness and stamina. He shows some leadership ability through his consistent play on the field. Ryan does an excellent job using his hands when pass blocking and is one of the few LTís in college that does not lunge when he gets beat. He does a good job recovering if he gets beat off the initial rush because he stays on balance and believes in his techniques. Some teams are going to rate Ryan higher on their draft boards than Jake Long.

Ryan needs to watch his weight and he will struggle a bit with the speed at the next level. He will have to work to become quicker out of his stance. But he has the talent to adjust and the work ethic to prevail.

Like I said, Ryan is a pure LT and some teams are going to rate him higher on their draft boards than Jake Long because Jake is more of a system LT. The truth is that you could flip a coin and take either player. They both should become core players and Pro Bowl players for the teams that draft them. I think with Ryan you might have a few more growing pains, but that is debatable also. What I like about Ryan is how smooth he is and how well he stays with his techniques. As soon as Ryan gets used to the speed of the NFL and gets in and out of his stance quicker, he will be an excellent LT. Ryan will have to work more on his quickness in blocking for the run than blocking for the pass, but as I always say, if you want a run-blocking LT, pull a guard. LTís must know how to pass block -- donít worry about how well they can run block. I like this kidís game a lot and the truth is that if I needed a LT it would be hard for me to decide who to pick. A pure LT trumps an LT that might have to be moved to LG. Thatís reality. So donít be surprised if Ryan moves up the charts.

Welcome to the Denver Broncos Ryan Clady and there's no-one who'd wish to welcome you more than Jay Cutler.

Pick made at 5-26pm Eastern Time. Bronco LB 52 and the Carolina Panthers are on the clock.
