3/27 3 round mock
Here's a 3 rounder to chew on, with a few trades thrown in. I've had to break it up because of the length.
1. Detroit: Jason Smith, OT, Baylor. With Julian Peterson at LB, Detroit goes OT, looking to get a QB later.
2. St. Louis: Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia. St. Louis goes for the replacement for Orlando Pace to anchor their line.
3. Cleveland: Aaron Curry, OLB, Wake Forest. Pioli gets the cornerstone for his defense.
4. Seattle: Mark Sanchez, QB, USC. With the top 2 tackles gone Seattle goes for Hasselbeck's replacement, but Sanchez is their guy for their version of the WCO.
5. Cleveland: Brian Orapko, DE/OLB, Texas. Mangini decides that Orapko is not Vernon Gholston II.
**Trade: Cincinnati trades #6 to Denver for #12 and #48. Denver moves up for Raji. Cincinnati is in love with Wells and thinks they can move back and still get him.
6. Denver: BJ Raji, DT, Boston College. Denver gets the DT to anchor their 3-4 defense.
7. Oakland: Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech. Al Davis can't resist getting the "next Fred Belitnikoff". A steal at #7.
8. Jacksonville: Michael Oher, OT, Mississippi. Del Rio coached Oher at the Senior Bowl. Jags fill their biggest need.
** Trade: Green Bay trades #9 to the Jets for #17 and #52.
9. NY Jets: Matt Stafford, QB, Georgia. The NY media goes crazy when the Jets trade up to get the "next Brett Favre". Rex Ryan is emboldened by Flacco's success in Baltimore.
10. San Francisco: Aaron Maybin, DE/OLB, Penn St. Maybin is rising fast, and with the QB's gone SF goes for a pass rusher at OLB. Andre Smith and Rey Maualuga would also be options.
11. Buffalo: Everett Brown, DE/OLB, Florida St. Buffalo gets the pass rusher they crave. Robert Ayers is also an option.
12. Cincinnati: Chris "Beanie" Wells, RB, Ohio St. Cincinnati falls in love with Wells and gets him cheaper than #6.
13. Washington: Andre Smith, OT, Alabama. Washington jumps at the chance to get the talented Smith to anchor the right side of their line.
14. New Orleans: Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois. Most physically talented corner in the draft.
15. Houston: Brian Cushing, OLB, USC. Houston gets a versatile LB who can play inside or out. Knowshon Moreno would also get some consideration.
** Trade: San Diego trades #16 to Minnesota for #22 and #86. With no 2nd, SD trades back a bit believing they can still get one of their guys.
16. Minnesota: Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri. Vikes hope he's not another Troy Williamson.
17. Green Bay: Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio St. With Raji off the board and Al Harris and Charles Woodson aging, Capers goes for a big CB.
18. Chicago: Darius Heyward-Bey, WR, Maryland. Chicago gets a big, talented speedster. DE's Robert Ayers and Michael Johnson are also possibilities.
19. Tampa Bay: Josh Freeman, QB, Kansas. With Sanchez and Stafford gone, TB reaches for Freeman. Freeman is rising, and TB is reportedly in love with him.
** Trade: Detroit trades #33 to Cleveland for QB Derrick Anderson. The Browns reload. Having missed out on Freeman, Detroit overpays but gets an experienced young QB with a strong arm.
20. Detroit: James Laurinaitis, ILB, Ohio St. Laurinaitis will go nicely with Julian Peterson and Ernie Sims at LB.
21. Philadelphia: Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Oklahoma St. They wanted Beanie Wells, but settle for a versatile TE.
22. San Diego: Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU. SD trades back, and still gets the top 3-4 DE to the gap left by Igor Olshansky. Rey Maualuga and Knowshon Moreno are also options.
23. New England: Connor Barwin, OLB, Cincinnati. With Parcells rumored to be enamored of Barwin, the Pats don't wait until #34 to get their 3-4 OLB. Rey Maualuga and William Beatty are also possibilities.
24. Atlanta" Peria Jerry, DT, Mississippi. Athletic penetrating UT fits the Falcons needs. Pettigrew would have gotten serious consideration. Robert Ayers is another option.
25. Miami: Clay Matthews, DE/OLB, USC. Bill Parcells gets his 3-4 OLB, the 3rd USC LB taken in the 1st round. Wanted Barwin, but settled for a nice consolation prize.
26. Baltimore: Rey Maualuga, ILB. Baltimore gets a physical ILB to replace Bart Scott and learn under Ray Lewis. Hakeem Nicks and Darius Butler will also get serious consideration.
27. Indianapolis: Percy Harvin, WR, Florida. Imagine what Peyton Manning can do with Harvin in addition to his other weapons, at both WR and out of the backfield. Nicks is also an option.
28. Philadelphia: Eben Britton, OT, Arizona. Eventual replacement for William Thomas at left tackle. Philly picks Britton over William Beatty because he is more physical, fitting their style.
29. NY Giants: Hakeem Nicks, WR, North Carolina. Nicks slips a bit because of his 14# weight gain at his pro day, and the Giants get the big WR they need to replace Plaxico Burress.
30. Tennessee: Robert Ayers, Tennessee. Titans gets a versatile DE with a great motor to help fill the void left by Haynesworth.
31. Arizona: Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia. The Cardinals get their choice to replace the Edge. Moreno slips a bit because of his 40 time, and is a steal here - another Emmit Smith.
32. Pittsburgh: Alex Mack, OG/C, California. Steelers get a powerful, smart anchor for it's biggest area of need.
33. Cleveland: Darius Butler, CB, Connecticut. Cleveland gets perhaps the best pure CB in the draft in the second round, and still has 2 more picks in the top 50.
34. New England: William Beatty, OT, Connecticut. New England trades up to get a potential franchise left tackle.
35. St. Louis: Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers. With Holt and Bruce just memories, they get a potential lead WR. Wanted Laurinaitis but missed. Alphonso Smith is also an option
36. Cleveland: Clint Sintim, DE/OLB, Virginia. Cleveland gets a versatile, solid 3-4 LB to pair with Brian Orapko, or possibly move inside.
37. Seattle: Donald Brown, RB, Connecticut. The Hawks get their replacement for Shawn Alexander to go with their new QB. UConn is on a roll.
38. Cincinnati: Max Unger, OG/C, Oregon. Bengals get a versatile interior lineman to block for Beanie Wells and Carson Palmer. Eric Wood from nearby Louisville is also an option.
39. Jacksonville: Jamon Meredith, OT, South Carolina. Last year they took 2 DE's, this year they take 2 OT's to rebuid there line.
40. Oakland: Michael Johnson, DE, Georgia Tech. Al Davis gets a physical freak on the DL.
41. Green Bay: Ron Brace, DT, Boston College. Green Bay misses on Raji but gets his teammate to be their 3-4 DT anchor.
** Trade: Buffalo trades #42 to Indianapolis for #61, 92 and 127.
42. Indianapolis: Evander "Ziggy" Hood, DT, Missouri. As in 2007, Indy moves up to cover a need when a player they covet is still available.
43. San Francisco: Philip Loadholt, OT, Oklahoma. SF gets a massive RT to bookend along with Joe Staley. Wanted Ron Brace, but settles for a consolation prize for passing on Andre Smith.
44. Miami: Sean Smith, CB/S, Utah. Parcells gets a big, versatile guy who can play CB or safety.
45. New York Giants: Alphonso Smith, CB, Wake Forest. Giants get a ball-hawking CB, considered by many a 1st round talent.
46. Houston: William Moore, S, Missouri. The Texans pick up a big, athletic S to anchor their secondary.
47. New England: Louis Delmas, S, Western Michigan. The Pats are ecstatic that Delmas is still on the board, and jump to get their Troy Polamalu.
48. Cincinnati: Larry English, DE, Northern Illinois. Cincinnati gets a pash rusher with a great motor.
49. Chicago: DJ Moore, CB, Vanderbilt. The Bears get an immediate upgrade at DB. Moore slips because of his slow 40 time and size.
50. Cleveland: Shonn Greene, RB, Iowa. Browns go for a big bruising back to split time with Jamal Lewis.
51. Dallas: Patrick Chung, S, Oregon. Replaces Roy Williams at SS. Big hitter, but better coverage ability.
52. San Francisco: Jarron Gilbert, DE, San Jose St. The 49ers go local and get a potential stud 3-4 DE to play next to Kentwan Balmer.
53. Philadelphia: LeSean McCoy, RB, Pittsburgh. "Shady" falls a bit, and will share time with Westbrook.
54. Minnesota: Duke Robinson, OG, Oklahoma. Massive road grader to help pave the way for the best running team in the NFL.
** Trade: Atlanta trades #55 and #125 to Arizona for #63 and #95. With several talented TE's still available, Atlanta trades back.
55. Arizona: Eric Wood, C, Louisville. Arizona fills their other big need on offense with a smart 4 year starter at center. They don't think he'll last to 63, and they're right.
56. Miami: Pat White, QB, West Virginia. Parcells hears rumors that Belichick loves White, and snatches him up.
57. Baltimore: Coye Francies, CB, San Jose St. The Ravens love big CBs.
58. New England: James Casey, TE, Rice. Pats get a smart, versatile athletic player who can play TE, H-back, WR, fullback, and even QB.
59. Carolina: Sen'Derrick Marks, DT, Auburn. Carolina gets an athletic, penetrating DT.

63. Atlanta: Shawn Nelson , TE, Southern Mississippi. Atlanta trades back and still gets an athletic TE for Ryan.
64. Pittsburgh: Fili Moala, DE/DT, USC. Big athletic 3-4 DE.
Re: 3/27 3 round mock
Here's round 3 and the complete Pats draft:
65. Detroit: Paul Kruger, DE, Utah. Detroit gets a pass rusher with a higher motor.
66. St. Louis: Darry Beckwith, MLB. They missed out on Laurinaitis to anchor the middle, and get another talented MLB instead.
67. Kansas City: Cody Brown, DE/LB, Connecticut. Talented 3-4 OLB to bookend Aaron Curry.
68. Seattle: Troy Kropog, OT, Tulane. OT with light feet who can learn from one of the best in Walter Jones.
69. Dallas: Joaquin Iglesias, WR, Oklahoma. Smooth WR to fill gap left by TO.
70. Cincinnati: Louis Murphy, WR, Florida. Big, fast WR to replace T.J. Houshmanzadeh.
71. Oakland: Rashad Johnson, FS, Alabama. With Gilson gone, Oakland fills a hole at safety with a smart ballhawk. Great pick.
72. Jacksonville: Chip Vaughn, SS, Wake Forest. Big, fast SS to play opposite Reggie Nelson.
73. Green Bay: Alex Magee, DE, Purdue. Talented 3-4 DE to go along with Ron Brace at DT.
74. San Francisco: Chris Baker, DT, Hampton. Massive DT to anchor their 3-4. 2nd round talent falls because of character concerns. Will be tough with Balmer and Gilbert next to him.
75. Buffalo: Lawrence Sidbury, DE, Richmond. An athletic pass rusher to immediately upgrade that area along with Everett Brown.
76. Houston: Andre Brown, RB, North Carolina St. Texans get a powerful young back who has the potential to be something special.
77. NY Jets: Mohammed Massaquoi, WR, Georgia. Jets get one of Stafford's favorite targets from Georgia to match up with him.
78. San Diego: Jasper Brinkley, ILB, South Carolina. Big run-stuffing ILB for their 3-4.
79. Cincinnati: Dannell Ellerbe, ILB, Georgia. Help for Keith Rivers.
80. Washington: Mike Mickens, CB, Cincinnati. Mickens falls a bit because of injury issues, and Minny gets good value here.
81. Tampa Bay: Gerald McRath, OLB, Mississippi. Fast OLB with great range in the Derrick Brooks mold.
82. Detroit: Victor Harris, CB, Virginia Tech. Macho is a solid pick here. Had a good pro day.
83. Green Bay: Rashad Jennings, RB, Liberty. Physical runner.
84. Chicago : Andy Levitre, OG, Oregon St. OL help to go along with a healthy Chris Williams.
85. Philadelphia: Sherrod Martin, FS, Troy. Athletic FS to replace Brian Dawkins. A steal here. Had the 2nd best 3-cone and short shuttle in the entire combine.
86. San Diego: Fenoki Tupuo, OT, Oregon. Big road grading OT/G.
87. Miami: Derrick Williams, WR, Penn St. Speedy WR to help stretch the field.
88. Baltimore: Cornelius Ingram, TE, Florida. Pass-catching TE to help stretch the field for Flacco.
89. New England: Sammie Lee Hill, DT, Stillman. Massive, athletic DT/DE.
90. Atlanta: Tyrone McKenzie, OLB, South Florida. Atlanta has lost Brookings and needs LB help. McKenzie is a solid pick in the 3rd.
91. NY Giants: Chase Coffman, TE, Missouri. Giants get a TE with great hands.
92. Buffalo: Javon Ringer, RB, Michigan St. With Marshawn Lynch's off-field woes, the Bills get a durable RB as insurance.
93. Carolina: Rhett Bomar, QB, Sam Houston St. Carolina gambles on a QB with upside as a possible successor to Delhomme.
94. Tennessee: Joe Burnett, CB, UCF. Solid pick here to play nickle.
95. Atlanta: Herman Johnson, OG, LSU. Massive offensive guard to inside.
96. Pittsburgh: Gerald Cadogan, OT, Penn St. Steelers continue to build their OL.
97. New England: T.J. Lang, OT, Eastern Michigan. Versatile lineman who can play RT or guard. Canfield or Luigs would be possible picks here.
98. Cincinnati: Trevor Canfield, OG, Cincinnati. Bengals take local product to help shore up their interior line.
99. Chicago: Jonathan Luigs, C, Arkansas. Eventual successor to Olin Kreutz. A steal this late in the 3rd.
100. NY Giants: James Davis, RB, Clemson. Replacement for Derrick Ward to team with Jacobs and Bradshaw.
7 Round NE draft:
23: Connor Barwin, OLB, Cincinnati. A Vrabel-Ware hybrid?
34: William Beatty, OT, Connecticut. Potential 10 year franchise LT.
47: Louis Delmas, S, Western Michigan. Close call with other safety prospects.
58: James Casey, TE, Rice. Incredible versatility and upside.
89: Sammie Lee Hill, DT, Stillman. Finally a true 3-4 DT backup for Wilfork.
97: T.J. Lang, OL, Eastern Michigan. Kaczur-like verastility.
124: Mike Wallace, WR, Mississippi. 6', 199#, 4.33. Athletic WR and return man a bit reminiscent of Greg Jennings.
170: Jason Phillips, ILB, TCU. 6'1" 240#. With 10 lbs. of muscle could be a solid SILB. Falls because of his injury. Jasper Brinkley is also an option here if he lasts this long. Nick Reed from Oregon is a sleep possibility here.
199: Devin Moore, RB, Wyoming. 5'9", 190#, 4.35. Possible successor to Kevin Faulk.
207: Kevin Huber, P, Cincinnati. 6'1", 220#. Can fight it out with Chris Hanson. Graham Gano and Thomas Morstead are also options here.
234: Ladarius Webb, CB, Nicholls St. 5'10", 179#, 4.40.
We miss out on a lot of prospects I like - Sean Smith, Robert Ayers, Alex Mack, Eric Wood, Jarron Gilbert, Andre Brown, Trevor Canfield, etc. - but I would be very happy with this outcome.
Re: 3/27 3 round mock
- I don't agree about sammie lee hill
- I would rather have sean smith and eric wood than beatty and delmas
Re: 3/27 3 round mock
How did Cleveland acquire Detiot's 33rd pick? :confused:
ETA: didnt see the Anderson trade til just now ;)
I think it's pretty good overall.
I don't think Al Davis takes a guy w/o a 40 time to go on.
Re: 3/27 3 round mock
Good job Mayo .. id wet myself if it went that way but Beatty doesnt get to #34 and id be surprised if we dont trade around somehow
Re: 3/27 3 round mock
Very well thought out. I would say it is impossible to predict trades and player movement prior to the draft that can affect the entire order. I do like that this mock takes into account a thought process that is real. Good job on this. I can't really argue to much with the way this falls. I do think the Giants will pick WR-Kenny Britt-Rutgers in round one. I think Delmas will 23-35 area as 1st safety off board. My gut tells me the Pat's will move #34 strictly because of value-maybe a 2010 rd 1 pick, maybe a swap of spots and another pick-a 4?. It will be interesting.
