    #75 Jersey

    1. Detroit - Aaron Curry LB Wake Forest

    2 St. Louis - Eugene Monroe OT Virginia

    3 Kansas City - BJ Raji DT Boston College

    4 Seattle - Jason Smith OT Baylor

    5 Cleveland - Brian Orakpo LB Texas

    6 Cincinnati - Everette Brown DE Florida St

    7 Oakland - Michael Crabtree WR Texas Tech

    8 Jacksonville - Malcolm Jenkins CB Ohio St

    9 Green Bay - Vontae Davis CB Illinois

    10 San Francisco - Michael Oher OT Mississippi

    11 Buffalo Rey Maualuga - LB USC

    12 Denver - Tyson Jackson DE LSU

    13 Washington - James Laurinaitis LB Ohio St (and here comes the LB run)

    14 New Orleans - Brian Cushing LB USC

    15 Houston - Clay Matthews LB USC

    16 San Diego - Donald Brown RB Connecticut (First surprise...Brown first RB off the board. Somewhat controversial, but LaDainian's contract could easily result in him being cut next year. I love ruthless GMs)

    17 New York Jets - Mark Sanchez QB USC (Second surprise. I don't care who good Stafford's arm is, he's not half the winner or leader Sanchez is.)

    18 Chicago - Pick traded to Tampa Bay for #19 and some late day 2 pick. Matt Stafford QB Georgia

    19 Chicago (from Tampa Bay) - Andre Smith OT Alabama

    20 Detroit (from Dallas) - Alex Mack C California

    21 Philadelphia - Eben Britton OT Arizona (Watch for the subsequent reaches for OTs)

    22 Minnesota - Darrius Heyward Bey WR Maryland

    23 New England - Pick traded to Cincinnati for #38, Cincy's 4th rounder, and a 2010 second rounder. William Beatty OT Connecticut

    24 Atlanta - Aaron Maybin DE Penn St

    25 Miami - Alphonso Smith CB Wake Forest (and watch for the subsequent reaches on CBs)

    26 Baltimore - Jeremy Maclin WR Missouri

    27 Indianapolis - Hakeem Nicks WR North Carolina

    28 Philadelphia (from Carolina) - Louis Delmas S Western Michigan (Should head off the Brian Dawkins riots)

    29 New York Giants - Knowshon Moreno RB Georgia (Third surprise. No pressing needs here, and Jacobs is proven fragile. He'll slide into the Derek Ward role.)

    30 Tennessee - Percy Harvin WR Florida

    31 Arizona - Clint Sintim LB Virginia

    32 Pittsburgh - Darius Butler CB Connecticut

    Second round

    33 Detroit - Pick traded to New England for #34 and sixth rounder. Connor Barwin LB Cincinnati

    34 Detroit (from Kansas City via New England) - Ziggy Hood DT Missouri

    35 St. Louis - Larry English DE Northern Illinois

    36 Cleveland - DJ Moore CB Vanderbilt

    37 Seattle - Chris Wells RB Ohio St

    38 New England (from Cincinnati) - Brian Robiskie WR Ohio St

    39 Jacksonville - Jamon Meredith OT South Carolina

    40 Oakland - Michael Johnson DE Georgia Tech

    41 Green Bay Jarron Gilbert DE San Jose St (and watch the subsequent reaches on defensive linemen)

    42 Buffalo - Brandon Pettigrew TE Oklahoma St

    43 San Francisco - Kenny Britt WR Rutgers

    44 Miami (from Washington) - Ron Brace NT Boston College

    45 New York Giants (from New Orleans) - Derrick Williams WR Penn St

    46 Houston - Peria Jerry DT Mississippi

    47 New England (from San Diego) - Patrick Chung S Oregon

    48 Denver - Max Unger C Oregon

    49 Chicago - Robert Ayers DE Tennessee

    50 Cleveland (from Tampa Bay) - Jared Cook TE South Carolina

    51 Dallas - Sean Smith DB Utah

    52 New York Jets - Paul Kruger DE Utah

    53 Philadelphia - James Casey TE Rice

    54 Minnesota - Phil Loadholt OT Oklahoma

    55 Atlanta - Jairus Byrd DB Oregon

    56 Miami - Cody Brown OLB Connecticut

    57 Baltimore - Marcus Freeman LB Ohio St

    58 New England - Chase Coffman TE Missouri (Having played Dallas Clark every year for a while, BB knows the havoc a slot TE who can catch can wreak versus opposing defenses)

    59 Carolina - Josh Freeman QB Kansas St

    60 New York Giants - Chip Vaughn S Wake Forest

    61 Indianapolis - Fili Moala DT USC

    62 Tennessee - Coye Francies CB San Jose St

    63 Arizona - Pick traded to New England for 89 and Cincinnati's fourth rounder Jon Luigs G Arkansas (I suppose if you prefer Eric Wood you can imagine him here)

    64 Pittsburgh - Troy Kropog OT Tulane

    Good stuff. If we got Barwin, Robiskie, Chung and Coffman, I'd be a very happy Pats fan, the scary thing is even with or without trades you mention, its realistic.

    Well, with 12 picks, I don't mind giving one to the Lions to prevent another team like Miami or Pittsburgh for trading up into the slot. At that point in the draft, Barwin was my top player.

    I'm not high on Chung, but overall a solid draft. I wouldn't be shocked to see them trade out of 23 if the draft unfolds like you say: there's a bit of a dead spot there in the late first round.

    We have that many picks im almost thinking these mocks are helpless. I mean we could do sooo many different things, depending on who we want, whos gone, BPA, requests for trades etc

    One things for sure i'll bet my mortgage we dont pick in all the designated spots

    Some thoughts:

    - I prefer Wood to Luigs, but doubt he'll last that long.
    - I don't pass on Beatty at #23 - the trade isn't worth passing on the potential of a franchise LT. Having taken an OT, I'll prioritize defense over an OG/C in round 2.
    - Since I didn't do your trade at 23, I trade #58 and #89 to move up to around #43 and take Robert Ayers when he falls into the 40's.
    - I'm not sure why we would have to trade up to #33 from 34 to get Barwin. I don't see Detroit going that way. But since you have it, I'll leave it.
    - I like Chung, but Sean Smith is still available and I like him better.
    - I don't want a TE at this point.

    So I take your mock and end up with:

    23 - William Beatty OT
    33 - Connor Barwin LB
    43 - Robert Ayers DE/LB (plan to move to SILB)
    47 - Sean Smith CB/S

    I'd be ecstatic with that first day. Four potential impact players. I would have liked Eric Wood, but I'll hope Trevor Canfield falls to 97.

    A good draft DH44. But it breaks my heart to see Clay Mattews taken all the way up at #15. I hope that he stubs his toe or something before the draft so he drops to us at 23.

    To each his own, I guess. I have Ayers as a UDFA for the Pats. I guess it doesn't matter if I had him as a 3rd rounder, he's gone on the first day. I don't have Canfield at all...don't want him.

    I agree with Beatty, but if a team like Cincinnati who desparately needs an OT makes that offer, I'll take it. If I were to draft at #23, he would have been my guy.

    I like Smith quite a bit...and I had the Pats taking him in the mock on the other thread. But the fact is we need a run-supporting safety much more than we need yet another corner who can play free safety...making Chung's value higher to me.

    What I possibly would do differently would be to pass on Chung to pick up Jared Cook or somebody, and come back with Chip Vaughn or David Bruton later.

    Depending on how the patriots value the OLB prospects, if there was a run on them, you might see them trade up as well (ala Warren a few years ago).

    My dream draft is this:

    23: Hope to see an ILB, Cushing or Malauga if he's there. Hope Belichick thinks these guys can play that position.

    34: Michael Johnson

    2nd: Barwin

    2nd: Best safety still available

    If we come out of the first 2 rounds with a safety, two pass rushers, and an ILB, I'll be psyched.

    I don't think Chase Coffman is very good.

    And I'm very intrigued my Michael Johnson.

    To tell the truth, I suppose it would make sense to target Barwin at 31 or so to get that extra year in the contract.

    2 guys from Uconn in the first round, holy homerism, not that there is anything wrong with that.

    Uncle Heat a fine job, and your draft looks like a Real one. What i mean is there is not the usual QB taken first WR second etc. like you see on other mock drafts. And i mean the pro mocks, were i've seen us taking B Cushing for example. I just can't see BB taking a guy like Cushing, I maybe wrong but hes not a BB kind of player.

    I'm starting to come to this same realization. If the draft falls as expected, I don't like the value at #23. The 2nd-4th rounds look like the sweet spot in this draft class. So I'm planning on yard work Saturday afternoon because I suspect the Pats may drop out of round 1.

    But I'll keep the radio on just in case...

    1. 5 second round picks? Yeesh. I don't see that happening. But it's an itneresting exercise.

    2. Stafford drops all the way to 18? I really don't see that happening. And you have Sanchez taken before Stafford. I also don't see that happening but I guess it's your personal opinion that Sanchez is better.

    3. The Bears trade away the opportunity to draft Stafford for a mere 6th round pick? This is so dumb. Kyle Orton is NOT the answer. If Stafford fell that far they would HAVE to take him. Unless they were getting offered two 1st round picks in return, they should take him. A mere 6th is not enough for the top rated QB of the draft.

    4. I'm not saying I like the QBs in this draft, but I just don't see them sliding that far.

    5. Why a wide receiver for the Pats that early? Do you think it's that big of a need or do you just like Robiskie that much?
