2007 Mock Draft
1. San Francisco 49ers-WR Calvin Johnson, Georgia Tech*
-Calvin is my #1 overall prospect along with many others. I don’t believe the three WR’s the 49ers drafted last year will ever become true #1 WR’s. Alex Smith needs a true #1 to go along with Vernon Davis and Frank Gore.
2. New York Jets-RB Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma*
-The Jets did draft Leon Washington last year, but he is only going to be a 3rd down RB and nothing more. Adrian Peterson is an amazing physical specimen and would be an excellent replacement for Curtis Martin.
3. Houston Texans-FS/SS LaRon Landry, LSU
-The Texans grabbed Eric Winston last year in the 3rd Round and I believe he can develop into a very good LT. They have a huge need at safety and LaRon is very versatile and a playmaker that help out the Texans defense a lot.
4. Buffalo Bills-QB Brady Quinn, Notre Dame
-J.P. Losman has been a huge bust thus far. If he doesn’t perform this year, then it is time to move on. Brady Quinn is a franchise QB with excellent size and a strong arm. It’s time for the Bills to move on.
5. Tennessee Titans-OT Joe Thomas, Wisconsin
-The Titans O-Line could use an upgrade, especially after drafting a Quarterback (Vince Young) #3 overall last year. Joe Thomas is a franchise LT who possess great size and excellent pass blocking. Thomas would pretty much complete the Titans offense and make it very good.
6. Oakland Raiders-DE/OLB Gaines Adams, Clemson
-Derrick Burgess had a great season last year. But, he has 0 help on the opposite side. Gaines Adams is a very quick sack artist who is also very good it getting his arms up and cutting off passing lanes (had more pass breakups last year than his 1st Round teammate Tye Hill). They still need help in the middle of the Defensive Line, but this is certainly helpful.
7. Green Bay Packers-RB Marshawn Lynch, California*
-Ahman Green never seems to stay healthy and Samkon Gado is not the answer. Marshawn Lynch is much like Adrian Peterson. He has great size and strength and also has had an injury like Peterson. Marshawn is just a step-behind Peterson in my book though, but he would greatly aid Aaron Rodgers in the near future.
8. New Orleans Saints-OLB/ILB Paul Posluszny, Penn State
-Before trading away Courtney Watson, the Saints had a big need at LB. Now, it’s a huge need. Paul Posluszny is a fierce competitor who can play either OLB or ILB. Pauly P would instantly make the Saints defense better.
9. St. Louis Rams-QB Brian Brohm, Louisville*
-Their were rumors afloat last year of the Rams possibly taking Jay Cutler in the 1st Round. But, they didn’t. Marc Bulger isn’t very old, but, they don’t have a quality back-up behind him or anyone for the future. Brian Brohm has been a very highly touted QB with very good size and a quick release. The Rams need a QB for the future and Brohm is the answer.
10. Detroit Lions-CB Antoine Cason, Arizona*
-Except Dre’ Bly, the Lions secondary is not very impressive. Dre’ is not the youngest guy either and will probably call it quits in the not to distant future. So, they need a replacement. Antoine Cason is a great talent from Arizona who has very good size (and the frame to add on more weight), good speed, and is very aggressive against the run and can also rush the QB very well for a CB. Cason would certainly help a very average Lions defense.
11. Baltimore Ravens-ILB Patrick Willis, Ole Miss
-The Ravens may have drafted DT Haloti Ngata in the 1st Round to start opening up more holes for Ray Lewis, but the fact is Ray won’t be around too much longer and they need a replacement. Patrick Willis is very Ray Lewis like in his determination and toughness along with being an excellent team leader and great ability to tackle with great technique and ability to deliver a pop. Willis could instantly step in and assume the same position as Ray Lewis did.
12. Cleveland Browns-OT/OG Justin Blalock, Texas
-The Browns have had some major Offensive Line holes the past few seasons and they haven’t done much to solve them. Now that Charlie Frye is the starter, they really need to bring in some people to protect their young QB. Justin Blalock is a very experienced RT who is great at run blocking. He is limited to RT and OG because his mobility and footwork are only average, but he is still a very good prospect nonetheless. If Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow Jr. can return from their injuries, this offense will be very good.
13. Minnesota Vikings-TE Greg Olsen, Miami (Fla.)*
-The Vikings traded up last year to grab Tarvaris Jackson in the 2nd Round and they believe he has a lot of potential and is their future QB. But, besides Troy Williamson, the Vikings don’t have many weapons for Jackson in the future. Greg Olsen is an excellent TE who is the next in a long line of great Miami TE’s. Olsen possess great size and soft hands who is also a very good blocker. A great TE is a QB’s best friend.
14. Arizona Cardinals-OT Sam Baker, USC*
-The Cardinals O-Line has been pretty bad the last few season. Last year, they had to experiment with ex-DE Fred Wakefield at OT. That was failure to say the least. That said they really need someone to protect Leinart in the near future and who better than his LT at USC, Sam Baker. Baker is a very experienced and a great pass blocker who kept Leinart clean at USC. Baker would be a huge aid to the Cardinals O-Line.
15. Atlanta Falcons-FS/SS Michael Griffin, Texas
-The Falcons brought in Lawyer Milloy in Free Agency, but the Lawyer won’t be around for long and they have nothing behind him. Michael Griffin is a very versatile safety who has great size, is very versatile, and a ballhawk who can also hit well. Griffin would be a great help to the young and improving Falcons secondary.
16. Philadelphia Eagles-WR Dwayne Jarrett, USC*
-The Philadelphia Eagles can win without Terrell Owens (and without the hundreds of injuries to hit them last year) and I’ll be the first to admit it. But, they’ll never be a Super Bowl team without him. They brought in Jason Avant and Jeremy Bloom in last year’s draft, but Avant will only be a #2 WR at best and Bloom is a return man. The Eagles WR core is just a bunch of #2 WR’s (at best) right now with the likes of Reggie Brown, Jabar Gaffney, and Greg Lewis. They need a true #1 WR. Dwayne Jarrett has excellent size, soft hands, and is a great redzone target. Dwayne would give McNabb a true #1 target which is desperately needed.
17. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-WR/CB Ted Ginn Jr., Ohio State*
-Chris Simms is the QB of the future. Michael Clayton is a very good possession WR but Joey Galloway is getting up in age and he has been a huge part of the Bucs offense. They don’t have a speedster behind him to replace him and they need one in their type of offense. Ted Ginn Jr. has amazing speed and athletic ability who is an amazing return man and a very special player. Ginn hasn’t played CB in a while, but was decent at the position and could develop into a solid nickel CB and play a Deion Sanders type role playing offense, defense, and special teams (though Ginn would be primarily offense where as Deion as primarily defense). Ginn is the explosive type of player that the Bucs need to replace Galloway.
18. Kansas City Chiefs-WR Sidney Rice, South Carolina*
-The Chiefs don’t need great WR’s to produce 4,000 passing yards each seasons as past years have shown with the likes of Eddie Kennison, Samie Parker, and Dante Hall. But, Eddie is getting old and Brodie Croyle was drafted in the 2nd Round last year to replace Trent Green in the near future. Croyle needs a true weapon. Sidney Rice only has one year of college football under his belt, but he dominated the SEC. Sidney has great size, is a very good redzone target, and can break tackles very well for a WR, something very rare in a WR. Brodie Croyle, Larry Johnson, and Sidney Rice, a bright future for the Chiefs offense.
19. Washington Redskins-DE Lawrence Jackson, USC*
-The Redskins defense has made great strides under Gregg Williams, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have needs. The Defensive Line is getting very old and they need somebody for the future. Lawrence Jackson has very good size and the frame to get bigger and has done a very good job of rushing the passer and defending the run. Andre Carter is going to need a partner for the future and Lawrence would be an excellent choice.
20. Jacksonville Jaguars-WR Jeff Samardzija, Notre Dame
-The Jaguars were a near Super Bowl team, then Jimmy Smith retired. The team now lacks a true #1 WR. Jeff Samardzija has excellent size, great athletic ability, great hands, and does a great job of out leaping defenders and adjusting to the ball. Jeff doesn’t have much starting experience and nobody is sure whether he will play Baseball (drafted in the 5th Round by the Chicago Cubs) or Football, but he has great upside and could be a very good WR in the NFL.
21. San Diego Chargers-SS/FS Brandon Merriweather, Miami (Fla.)
-A lot of people expect the Chargers to make a big fall from the past few years, but they are a good team and will contend for a playoff spot. Rivers is a very good young QB who has been training hard and awaiting his chance to play. He now has it and has every intention of performing well. Rivers does need a WR for the future, but the top 5 WR’s are off the board so they turn to the secondary where there is a big hole at safety. Brandon Merriweather is a versatile player who is good against both the pass and run and is very aggressive. Merriweather would certainly help a young secondary that has two 1st Round CB’s in Quentin Jammer and Antonio Cromartie.
22. Miami Dolphins-OLB Rufus Alexander, Oklahoma
-Nick Saban has done a great job with the Dolphins, particularly in the draft. But, one thing he hasn’t done is bring in a future LB to replace the aging Junior Seau and/or Zach Thomas. Rufus Alexander is a bit undersized, but possess excellent speed, is great in coverage, has very good lateral movement, and is all over the field making plays. A excellent replacement for Seau.
23. New York Giants-RB Michael Bush, Louisville
-Eli Manning has developed very nicely for the Giants and they have done a good job of supplying him with talent. But, their star RB Tiki Barber is getting old and they have no future replacement. Michael Bush is a huge RB that surprisingly has great athletic ability and agility as well as good feet and blows defenders over. He doesn’t have good speed though and sometimes tries to plow over people to much, but would still be a very good replacement for Tiki Barber.
24. Dallas Cowboys-QB Drew Stanton, Michigan State
-The Cowboys from all signs seem to like the young QB’s they currently have in Tony Romo, Drew Henson, and recent UDFA Jeff Mroz. Yet, only Henson has even started a game. Bledsoe is getting old and the QB’s behind him are boom or bust players that are all leaning towards the bust side more. They need to get somebody who can actually take over after Bledsoe leaves. Drew Stanton is a very tough QB with great size, great mobility, and has great athletic ability. He has suffered his fair share of hits and injuries already in his young career, but is a great competitor who could start from day one if needed.
25. Cincinnati Bengals-DE/OLB Quentin Moses, Georgia
-The Benglas keep bringing in hybrid players who original look to take the starting job at DE opposite of Justin Smith, then wind up playing OLB, specifically David Pollack last year. It’s about time they brought in a DE and keep him at DE. Quentin Moses has very good size (and the frame to add on weight), great quickness along with a quick first step, and is very athletic. He does need to add some weight though and improve against the run, but could the starter they need opposite of Justin Smith (unless they move him to OLB, which he does have the ability to do).
26. New England Patriots-CB Leon Hall, Michigan
-Despite being their biggest need in the last draft, the Patriots failed to bring in a CB. It’s once again their biggest need and they need to solve it. Leon Hall has very good size and speed, has a lot of starting experience, and has been very productive and knows how to disrupt plays. He’d certainly be an upgrade to a weak CB core in New England.
27. Carolina Panthers-QB JaMarcus Russell, LSU*
-Quarterback seems to be the Panthers least talked about need. But, you can’t ignore the fact that Jake Delhomme is going to be 32 years old at the time of the draft and that Chris Weinke and Stefan LeFors are not the future. JaMarcus Russell is a big QB that reminds most of Daunte Culpepper because of his size (6-5 248 lbs.) and ability to move around. JaMarcus also has a cannon for an arm, perhaps the strongest I’ve seen (can throw the ball 80 yards) and has great athletic ability. His mechanics really need some work though along with his accuracy and decision making. I expect him to have a big season this coming year though and shot up into the 1st Round where the Panthers could be waiting for their future QB.
28. Chicago Bears-OT Doug Free, Northern Illinois
-The Chicago Bears have two very good OT’s in Fred Miller and John Tait, but both are up in age and they need to add somebody for the future. Doug Free is a mammoth OT who has the potential to be a franchise LT. He is a good pass blocker and very good run blocker with great athletic ability. The Bears need some protection for Rex Grossman, or Brian Griese, or Kyle Orton, or whoever their starting QB will be.
29. Pittsburgh Steelers-DE/OLB/ILB LaMarr Woodley, Michigan
-The Steelers just got off a very successful year winning the Super Bowl and they are looking to repeat. I doubt they do it, but they are a very good team. Anyways, they still do have some holes to fill, and Linebacker is one of them. LaMarr Woodley is an extremely versatile player with very good strength, good quickness, good athletic ability, and does a very good job of getting after the QB. LaMarr also fits Pittsburgh’s style of play with his motor and never give up attitude. He could bulk up and player 3-4 DE, player 3-4 OLB and edge rush, or even play ILB in the 3-4 (His skills best suit 3-4 OLB). Wherever he plays, he will help the Steelers a lot and provide great depth.
30. Indianapolis Colts-OT Levi Brown, Penn State
-The Colts O-Line the past few seasons have been great, except in the playoffs last season where the Pittsburgh Steelers made them look very average. Their needs are primarily at OG, but no OG is a 1st Round prospect (yet) in the 2007 NFL Draft. Tarik Glenn is getting up in age and they need a replacement for him. Levi Brown has good size, very good athletic ability, and moves well for his size. He is good at pass blocking, but he certainly could improve. The last time the Colts used a 1st Rounder on O-Line was when they drafted Tarik Glenn, so maybe it’s time to use one again to replace him in the near future.
31. Denver Broncos-DT Frank Okam, Texas*
-The Denver Broncos and their Cleveland Browns Defensive Line experiment last year worked out pretty well, but that D-Line can certainly be upgraded at either DT or DE. Frank Okam is a massive NT who has very good strength, is very good against the run, and has good athletic ability. Okam doesn’t have a lot of stating experience though because he was behind Rodrique Wright and Larry Dibbles for a while, but they are both gone now and Okam will be the main man in the middle. Okam has tons of potential and would aid the Broncos a lot.
32. Seattle Seahawks-DE Tim Crowder, Texas
-Grant Wistrom and Bryce Fisher both did good last year, but they have had their share of injuries and the Seahawks need some depth at DE. Tim Crowder has excellent size, has good quickness and lateral movement, and does a very good job of putting pressure on the QB. Crowder would add very good depth to the Seahawks DE core and would be a starter in the 2-3 years.

Join Date: Mar 2004
33. San Francisco 49ers-SS/FS Tom Zbikowski, Notre Dame
-Tony Parrish is aging and they need a future replacement.
34. New York Jets-DE Adam Carriker, Nebraska
-The Jets will be experimenting with the 3-4 and Carriker has great size for a DE and could play in a 3-4 well.
35. Houston Texans-DT Quinn Pitcock, Ohio State
-The Texans run defense was dead last in 2005. They need a DT to stuff the run.
36. Buffalo Bills-ILB Brandon Siler, Florida*
-London Fletcher is getting up in age and they need someone for the future.
37. Tennessee Titans-FS Anthony Reddick, Miami (Fla.)*
-Reddick is the BPA and LaMont Thompson is good, but Reddick could easily take the job.
38. Oakland Raiders-DT Marcus Thomas, Florida
-The Raiders top 2 DT’s (Sapp and Jasper) are over 30 years old. They really need to bring in some youth.
39. Green Bay Packers-TE Zach Miller, Arizona State*
-Bubba Franks got hurt last year and is approaching 30 years old. Rodgers needs a good TE for the future.
40. New Orleans Saints-CB Darrelle Revis, Pittsburgh*
-CB has been a big need for the Saints for a while now and it needs to be addressed.
41. St. Louis Rams-SS/OLB Aaron Rouse, Virginia Tech
-A bit high for Rouse, but the Rams need some help at SS and OLB and Rouse could do either, though I see him primarily playing SS.
42. Detroit Lions-ILB/OLB H.B. Blades, Pittsburgh
-The Lions brought in Ernie Sims to play OLB last year, but they still need a man to play inside.
43. Baltimore Ravens-OT Jake Long, Michigan*
-Ogden is on the brink of retiring and no other OT’s have stepped up. They need someone for the future.
44. Cleveland Browns-CB Daymeion Hughes, California
-The Browns have very little depth at CB and Hughes could instantly start as the #2 CB or nickel CB.
45. Minnesota Vikings-OLB Dan Connor, Penn State*
-The Vikings took Chad Greenway in the 1st Round last year, but he needs a partner.
46. Arizona Cardinals-DE/OLB Mkristo Bruce, Washington State
-The Cardinals have very little depth at DE and nobody for the future. Mkristo is a bit of a tweener, but could help the Cards DE problem.
47. Atlanta Falcons-C/OT Kyle Young, Fresno State
-Young may not be the best fit for the zone blocking scheme in Atlanta, but McClure is getting old and Young is a very good C who could do very well, even in a system that doesn’t suit him well.
48. Philadelphia Eagles-RB Lynell Hamilton, San Diego State*
-Lynell is a late 1st Round prospect who certainly shouldn’t of fallen this far. Lucky for the Eagles though, they can get a big RB that can share the load with Brian Westbrook and combine for a deadly rushing attack.
49. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-OLB Earl Everett, Florida
-Derrick Brooks is getting up in age and they need an athletic and fast OLB to replace him and play the same role he did.
50. Kansas City Chiefs-OG Samson Satele, Hawaii
-The Chiefs O-Line is getting old, specifically at OG. Satele needs to add some weight, but is a very good OG with very good athletic ability and movement.
51. New York Jets (from Washington Redskins)-DE/OLB Quentin Groves, Auburn*
-The Jets need to get Vilma some help in the LB core. Groves is an ideal 3-4 OLB who could certainly shot up draft boards this year.
52. Jacksonville Jaguars-CB/FS Marcus McCauley, Fresno State
-I do believe Dee Webb is a potential steal, but he needs time to develop and they need somebody opposite of Mathis.
53. San Diego Chargers-WR Jason Hill, Washington State
-Phillip Rivers has basically no WR targets for the future unless the current back-ups step-up big.
54. Miami Dolphins-OT/OG Arron Sears, Tennessee
-The Dolphins O-Line could use some depth and Sears provides good versatility and depth.
55. New York Giants-K Mason Crosby, Colorado
-If you watched the Giants game versus the Seahawks last year, you’d know both teams need a kicker badly. The Giants pick ahead of the Seahawks though, so they get the honor of drafting Mason Crosby, a big legged kicker from the Rockies.
56. Dallas Cowboys-OT Ryan Harris, Notre Dame
-The Cowboys O-Line had a lot of injuries last year and they could use a future LT.
57. Cincinnati Bengals-DT Red Bryant, Texas A&M*
-The Bengals run defense needs some help and Red Bryant would be help a lot.
58. New England Patriots-WR Jarrett Hicks, Texas Tech
-David Givens is gone and Branch doesn’t look to be far behind. Tom Brady needs a #1 WR and Hicks could be the answer.
59. Carolina Panthers-OLB Keith Rivers, USC*
-They drafted James Anderson last year, but they still have another hole at OLB that needs to be filled.
60. Chicago Bears-TE Joe Newton, Oregon State
-Though Newton is a bit of a reach here, the Bears can’t ignore their need at TE any longer.
61. Pittsburgh Steelers-FB/RB Brian Leonard, Rutgers
-The Bus is gone and their offense has thrived on the thunder and lighting run game. Brian Leonard has the size to be thunder, but also has amazing athletic ability not found in most RB’s of his size.
62. Indianapolis Colts-DT Sedrick Ellis, USC*
-The Colts lost Tripplett in Free Agency and need to get a DT to replace him.
63. Denver Broncos-RB Kenny Irons, Auburn
-Irons has no business fallen to the late 2nd Round and would be a huge steal here. He fits the zone blocking scheme the Broncos use very well and would be an ideal pick for the Broncos here.
64. Seattle Seahawks-RB Tyrone Moss, Miami (Fla.)
-Shaun Alexander will be 30 years old come draft time which is getting up there in RB years.

It's a long time till April 2007, but at this point I would hate the Okam pick (would rather have Crowder or Reddick) and love the Irons pick for the Broncs.
I'm not a Quinn believer and think he will be a pro bust. Leak is rated way too high, Palko too low and probably Keller. If Russell improves as much from '05 to '06 as much as he did from '04 to '05, he will be one of top 2-3 along with Brohm, assuming he recovers OK.
I would put Smith and Hicks at the top of the Senior WR list, but Johnson will be an all time great if he keeps his head and his health.

On the Miami prospects......
To me, Kyle Wright is Carson Palmer physically, he just needs to find the Norm Chow to get the production out of him. He had a great year last year as a first time starter. He should be a very good NFL QB eventually. There are alot of things to like about Kyle Wright. I think he has a bright future. Great height, mobile for a big guy, a good arm (although on deep balls he has to correct that little hitch in the delivery that ruins his timing on those deep balls), generally accurate and smart. His deep ball mechanics and his pocket presence need to improve. He hasnt quite got that clock down in his head that tells him when to release the ball, but that comes with experience, he has only started 1 year. The only QB that is clearly better than him in my opinion is Brian Brohm, who cleans the clock out of any QB in the last few drafts, IMO.
Tyrone Moss gets way too much respect on that rankings list, No. 3 among senior backs is too high. He constantly has work ethic issues, he'll get lazy and fat when someone isn't on his ass all the time. He's a very good inside runner, very consistent in that inside game, will get you 4,5,6, but has no speed element at all to his game. There is no burst to his game at all and he cannot beat mediocre college defenses to the corner and almost never breaks open a run over 10 yards. Poor pass blocker and poor pass receiver.
Ryan Moore is the ultimate boom or bust player. He'll either be a productive possession type WR or out of the league fast. He has very good size, an excellent build and good speed, but he also has had numerous injury problems, and consistency problems with his hands and some problems with the coaches. Should have been alot more productive for his gifts. We'll see if he can finally replicate his outstanding 2003 redshirt freshman campaign, or will it be more like the extremely disappointing 2004 and 2005. High risk, high reward.
Greg Olsen is the best TE in the country. Period. An outstanding prospect, solid in all aspects, is a decent run blocker and an excellent route runner with great hands. Very reliable weapon for the QB. He made (2006 top ten pick) Ernie Sims his biatch last year in the opener against Florida State. Greg has good, but not great speed. Should be a top 15 pick. Excellent player and will be a very good pro.
Anthony Wollschlager is very overrated for an OL prospect. I don't know how he is constantly getting accolades. He is often overpowered by DTs and isnt technically superior to offset it. I always scratch my head when I see people commending him.
Baraka Atkins is a good DE that has been forced to play DT the last few years, so people havent really been able to see how good of a pass rusher he is. He is a good one. Used to really struggle against the run, but has gotten better as he has gained weight.
Bryan Pata is a sleeper prospect at DE. He's actually more talented than Atkins but has been very inconsistent after impressing as a freshman.
Watch out for a kid named Kareem Brown this year. He could be a first round pick. He had a fine year last year in his first year starting at DT. He can create a good deal of havoc. It has taken him longer than we hoped to hit his stride but he is doing it now. He will be a senior this year and should be a top DT prospect.
I can't believe Jon Beason did not get any love from that list. He's going to be one of the top 2 or 3 OLB in America next season. Beason should be a first round pick. He has excellent instincts and excellent speed. He's also a leader. He can hit like the Dickens. Watch out for Jon Beason.
Tavares Gooden is also very talented. I am glad to see him mentioned there. Kinda fell off last year after a promising 04. He doesn't always take good angles, but has a nice build and is very fast. T-Good is really talented. Another possible first rounder at LB. Gooden and Beason will be a great duo for Miami this season.
Romeo Davis is a joke of a LB, i dont know why he is even mentioned. He is very light and is not very skilled. He has smarts but is definitely NOT an impact player. Kinida like another LB we have, Glenn Cook, smart but not talented enough to really make a difference.
Glenn Sharpe is someone to watch out for. He's an unlisted CB prospect there, but an excellent man-coverage guy with nice height. I really like him alot. He has been completely snakebitten. He had an outstanding freshman season and was one of the best corners in man coverage on a team with Kelly Jennings and Antrel Rolle in 2002. And then the "pass interference" call happened in the Fiesta Bowl on him and he just couldnt get a break after that. Hasnt played in two years due to two ACL injuries, but has regained sub 4.4 speed and is a really good player. He definitely has first day and possibly first round talent but his injury history will scare people away. He is a stud though. Dominant at spring practice just like he used to be. Watch out for Glenn Sharpe at corner. An All-American, I am calling it. (Please don't get hurt again Glenn).
Reddick is a hard luck case at S. Probably will not get much playing time this year despite being a good safety. He was real good his freshman year in 2004, especially good at diagnosing plays and then tore his ACL. Unfortuneatly for him, future top 5-10 pick Ken Phillips came in last year as a true freshman and he will not be unseated by anyone, period and Merriweather really stepped up his game last year. Reddick could see some time in the dime defense, he's a smart safety.
Brandon Merriweather- Kind of hesitant on Brandon. Really came on last year out of nowhere, not sure if I should buy into the hype or call him a one year wonder. Looking to see if he replicates it. A good athlete, with range and can definitely hit as well. Made several nice picks last year and most CU fans on the board will remember him, he had a good game against Colorado last year.

wow on the russell pick. and semi wow on the landry pick.
the russell pick is a leap of faith with a lot of guess work behind it. he has the tools to be a first rounder of course but this years schedule is brutal with road trips to tenn, auburn, florida(all three projected top ten), and arkansas(improved) plus SECCG. id love to see JR perform that well. that would also allow us to keep ryan perriloux(#1 recruit in the nation last year) happy and maybe even start him. JR going would mean that A.he led us to a great year and B. we can usher in the new era seemlessly with perriloux.
as for landry, he could be a franchise player IMO in the mold of ed reed. hes extremely athletic, has great hips and opens them well for the deep route. he can lay the hit and next play make a great pick.
i would be very happy with the irons pick, even if he is an auburn guy. the kid has a motor and would have tremendous value at 63. id love him at 31 or earlier. i think him or marshawn lynch would be possibilities. i would be happy with both of them

I know you probably see him more than me, but I think the "light suddenly came on" for Russell about 3-4 games into last season. After watching him in 2004, he seemed to be just another one of those great athletes trying to play QB, but last year he suddenly matured, learned to be more patient and let plays develop before trying to force a play. If he improves as much this year, watch out.

Quick thoughts on the Nebraska prospects...
TE Matt Herian-Nebraska 6-5 240 lbs. 4.75
Matt's NFL future, and possibly NU's season, hinges on how he bounces back after a year out of football. Before the injury he was projected as a first day pick.... until he plays a few games no one knows where he will go. When healthy Herian was a force as a receiving TE and an adequate blocker.
C Kurt Mann-Nebraska 6-4 290 lbs. 5.05
I will always remember Mann as the guy that stepped in and filled Incognito's shoes when Richie was released from the team. As it turns out there was very little drop-off when the sophomore took over. While Richie was a physical specimen, Kurt relies on hustle and grit to get the job done. I see him going late in the draft and having a 50% chance of making an NFL team. He will either be another Russ Hochstein or another Josh Sewell.
DE Adam Carriker-Nebraska 6-6 280 lbs. 4.80
Carriker is a beast and will follow in the footsteps of Grant Wistrom and Kyle Vanden Bosch in being a mid-high draft pick. At this stage in his career he may be the best to play the position here. I would be very surprised if Carriker was not an excellent pro player down the road. His combination of size and speed should make him an every down player at the next level.
DE Jay Moore-Nebraska 6-4 270 lbs. 4.71
Another good DE prospect, Jay is not the physical specimen that Carriker is, but should be a second day pick. Moore might have a monster year if Carriker draws constant double teams... so his number might be skewed. I see him possibly making a team as a situation player that might develop into a starter down the road.
CB Zackary Bowman-Nebraska 6-2 190 lbs. 4.40
#22 CB in the nation? If he is not a first round pick next year I will sport a CU signature for a month.
Of the juniors I think Steve Octavian may have the most upside. He's basically a bigger version of Demorrio Williams (drafted 4th round by Atlanta in 2004). Again bouncing back from a serious injury is a concern, but if he does he will be a force in college and potentially the pros as well.

That would be an awesome draft for the Broncos - we get a huge DT that will command double teams and a first-round calibre RB from a program known for producing great runners (Auburn - Bo Jackson, Stephen Davis, Rudi Johnson, Cadillac Williams, and Ronnie Brown just to name several).

they failed to mention some other prospects of ours...
alley broussard(would have been starter in front of addai this year if not for preseason injury)
justin vincent(youre telling me that the NC game MVP isnt worth SOMETHING). he can be a very good runner if utilized correctly although he too will be coming off injury
dwayne bowe - had lasik surgery which should(by most reports) greatly improve his concentration(mcnabb had the same thing last year(i think) and reported that he was much more comfortable then)
chase pittman - only returning dlineman. will be the anchor at DE and make plays in both the running gamea nd passing game.
will arnold - preseason all SEC guard, injured last year, should be an intriguing prospect
jesse daniels - SS next to landry should raise his stock a solid play maker
Jonathan Zenon & Chevis Jackson - two very athletic corners, both juniors. our secondary is ranked #1 by multiple publications and is coached by a DB guru, bo pellini so look for some stars to come from here
another playmaker will be ali highsmith who played extremely well and looks to be the leader of the LB corps as a junior this year.

Early nfldraftcountdown.com mock draft.
27. Denver Broncos-Marshawn Lynch, RB California
I've never seen Lynch play, anyone got info on him? Would he be a good fit here?
I'm generally up for going BPA, but I think next year should be the time that the Broncos finally consider spending a 1st rounder on the D-line for the first time since Trevor Pryce. Safety is also an area for consideration as John Lynch isn't getting any younger.

I would love to see Irons in a Bronco uni... if they pick at #63 (or #64 ) and he's still there, that's a major steal, even if either Bell runs for 1500 yards this season.
As for Okam... I was thinking the two positions the Broncos should target early in the draft next year is DT and FS... my pref would be Zbikowski, as long as he's willing to commit to the NFL and not his boxing career. But I'd settle for Okam or Pitcock, I think On the not-so-off chance that Irons is gone in the second, getting a safety would make sense to me.
As for us taking Marshawn Lynch in the first? See the above. A late second-round RB might be considered a value pick; but Denver is just too *good* at getting yardage out of later rounds to spend a first on a RB. Whereas they need all the help they can get at upgrading the talent level at key areas on D.
(I've only seen Lynch in a few Cal games - he's a talent but for the Broncos system, I'm not sure I wouldn't rather have Irons!)

if paymuh or cox or somebody can step up and show some decent ability and ferguson continues to play well, i will be fine with our safeties
im becoming more and more convinced that our first two picks should be DE and DT or maybe DE and DE. i really wouldnt be that frustrated if all of our picks were spent on the Dline next year. iu would like to have zbikowski because i like his aggression and returning abilities. ill actually be hoping that he doesnt play that well this year so that maybe he falls to us in the late second or third. i dont really like us picking a RB next year unless a big talent falls like marshawn lynch at 27 or irons at 63, of course this depends on MB and TBs development but i see the DLine as our only noticeable difference. TE will be fine with scheffler and we should be good at WR if marshall or watts can step up across from walker.

Allen Trieu is a good guy and a true draft geek. One of the sites I bookmark is his as he provides excellent links to other draft sites.
(I have nothing to do with his site, just passing along one I like.)

well, gotta throw in a homer opinio on QB, jamarcus russell was amazing yesterday. he thread the needle on forty yard throws while getting hit in the gut, didnt step into it either. other times he used touch on fade routes in the RZ, had another bomb that was about a foot from a TD. amazing game, even if it was against ULL, the throws were still pin point.
