Mock Draft 3 Rounds

Been working on this for about 2 months. Still not satisfied with it, but it will do for now.





Round 1
1 Carolina
Patrick Peterson
CB
  LSU
Best player in this draft should go #1 overall. Though Ron Rivera loves a strong pass rush, Peterson is one of the best shutdown CB since Revis.
2 Denver
Marcell Dareus
DT
Alabama
While Fairley may have more upside, Dareus is nearly at his peak as a DT and is a damn good one. Denver gets a Haloti Ngata type talent.
3 Buffalo
Da'Quan Bowers
DE
Clemson
Bowers resembles Julius Peppers so much. Buffalo will enjoy that type of skill set. Pairing Bowers with NT Kyle Williams is going to cause alot of damage.
4 Cincinnati
Cam Newton
QB
Auburn
Mike Brown is their owner.
5 Arizona
Blaine Gabbert
QB
Missouri
With the uncertainty of a new CBA being in place before the draft, Arizona will need to make a move for a QB in case Kolb, Palmer or Bulger aren't available after. Gabbert will be able to get the ball to Fitz, don't worry about that
6 Cleveland
Julio Jones
WR
Alabama
Yup, Jones is taken before Green. Insane physical abilities with so much room to get better. Browns are building a pretty decent team and have a QB who I really like. McCoy to Julio will be a force to reckon with for a while.
7 San Francisco
Von Miller
OLB
Texas A&M
If Miller falls to #7, I don't see how the 49ers could pass on him. While SF already has a solid group of 3-4 LB, Miller is too good to pass up and immediately creates an insane LB combo of Willis and Miller
8 Tennessee
Nick Fairley
DT
Auburn
Tennessee misses Haynesworth's presence, so they replace that with a very, very good player. Fairley and last year's #1 pick Derrick Morgan should make for a great combo and help out one of the best secondaries in the league.
9 Dallas
Prince Amukamara
CB
Nebraska
Dallas underachieved last season considering how talented their roster is. They have a very solid defense already, and Prince just makes them better.
10 Washington
AJ Green
WR
Georgia
Best player here by far and is only going to make this team better. Only problem is, who will be throwing Green the ball?
11 Houston
Aldon Smith
DE/OLB
Missouri
Smith reminds me much of my own Terrell Suggs, and I think Wade Phillips is going to enjoy that type of talent to pair with Mario, Cushing and Ryans.
12 Minnesota
Cameron Jordan
DE
California
Jordan has the best technique at DE in this draft in my opinion. Pairing Jordan with Jared Allen makes their D-Line scary yet again.
13 Detroit
Jimmy Smith
CB
Colorado
Might seem too high to some people, but no one can deny that Smith has top 15 talent. Detroit looks past the character issues and addresses their biggest need. The Lions front 7 is too damn good to not have a solid CB like Jimmy Smith.
14 St. Louis
Robert Quinn
DE
North Carolina
Spagnulo has been building a pretty damn good defense since taking over and Quinn will only add to that. Great talent at a great spot in the draft for STL.
15 Miami
Mark Ingram
RB
Alabama
This seems to be the popular pick in most mocks, but it makes so much sense. As a Ravens fan, I see ALOT of Jamal Lewis when watching Ingram run, and the Dolphins will definitely enjoy that.
16 Jacksonville
Martez Wilson
ILB
Illinois
Jaguar fans may hate this one, but they need help in the middle of their defense in my opinion and Wilson is a freak athlete that can play every LB position. JAX has a history of reaching on players (Harvey and Alualu) so I could see them reaching again. I really like this pick for Jacksonville though, sorry if you don't.
17 New England
Tyron Smith
OT
USC
NE really wants to improve their defense, but Smith is a top 15 talent who drops to them.Their OL is still strong, but Smith makes it alot stronger.
18 San Diego
JJ Watt
DE
Wisconsin
What a steal at 18. Watt is a top 10 talent I think and grabbing him here is too good to pass up. He fits their scheme and what better of a name to have when being drafted by the Chargers?
19 New York Giants
Gabe Carimi
OT
Wisconsin
Solid player and pick for the Giants. Carimi can step in right away and start at either left or right tackle.
20 Tampa Bay
Ryan Kerrigan
DE/OLB
Purdue
Another typical pick in most mocks, but fits the Bucs so well. TB is going to have a great DL for years to come with McCoy and Price, and Kerrigan can rush the passer from
21 Kansas City
Phil Taylor
DT
Baylor
Taylor creates one of the best DL in the league playing alongside Dorsey and Jackson. He will allow Hali to fly free.
22 Indianapolis Derrick Sherrod
OT
Miss. St
OL is the Colts biggest need. Sherrod is the best one available. Gotta keep Peyton healthy for as long as possible, because once he is gone they go to 8-8 for 20 straight seasons.
23 Philadelphia
Mike Pouncey
OG/C
Florida
Just an all around solid pick that makes sense for the Eagles. Improves the running game very much and protects Vick's abilities.
24 New Orleans
Corey Luiget
DT
Illinois
The Saints have a few options here, but Luiget gives NO a great option next to Ellis. Luiget is flying up draft boards.
25 Seattle
Ryan Mallet
QB
Arkansas
Hasselback's status with Seattle is up in the air right now and Clip Board Jesus is not the answer either. With the CBA uncertainties dealing with free agency, Mallet fills a possible need. He is a much better QB than people think.
26 Baltimore
Justin Houston
OLB
Georgia
Suggs 2.0, nuff said.
27 Atlanta
Adrian Clayborn
DE
Iowa
DE is one of the bigger needs for ATL and while Clayborn has some concerns, he goes to a well minded team that will know how to get the best out of him. Abraham and Clayborn could wreak havoc.
28 New England
Cameron Heyward
DE
Ohio St.
Prototypical 3-4 DE, and adds to a very, very strong defense. NE is on the rise of becoming one of the best defenses in the league if they can sure up their front 7, and Heyward can do that.
29 Chicago
Nate Solder
OT
Colorado
What a steal at this spot. Solder definitely needs some work, but with the state of the Bears' O-Line, he could very well start right away.
30 New York Jets
Muhammed Wilkerson DE
Temple
Losing Jenkins and Ellis is going to hurt the strong NYJ defense, but Wilkerson can start right away and clear up some concerns.
31 Pittsburgh
Brandon Harris
CB
Miami
Alot of the players Pittsburgh would want before Harris are gone, but this is still a great pick for them and fills a need. While he may not be a true #1 CB because of his size, Harris and the underrated Ike Taylor make one of the best CB combinations in the league.
32 Green Bay
Jon Baldwin
WR
Pittsburgh
Maybe a reach here, but his talents will be put to good use by the great Aaron Rodgers. Driver only has a season or 2 left in him and Jones may be on the way out. Their offense just gets more dangerous with Baldwin in the mix.

 

Rounds 2 and 3 after the jump




Round 2
33 New England
Torrey Smith
WR
Greatest School University
Sighhhh, New England yet again gets great value here. My fellow Terp goes on to be one of the best deep threats in the NFL with Tom Brady getting him the ball
34 Buffalo
Brooks Reed
OLB
Arizona
The Bills passed on Von Miller in the first round by taking Bowers, and still end up getting a top 5 OLB in the 2nd round.
35 Cincinnati
Marcus Cannon
OG
TCU
Gotta protect Newton.
36 Denver
Rahim Moore S
UCLA
Moore is a first round talent who slips into the 2nd, but gives Denver a huge steal here.
37 Cleveland
Aaron Williams
CB
Texas
Another great pick for Cleveland to pair with Haden and move Eric Wright to a nickel/dime CB.
38 Arizona
Akeem Ayers
OLB
UCLA
Arizona passed on Von Miller in the first round for Gabbert. Ayers is a good fit now.
39 Tennessee
Jake Locker
QB
Washington
The Titans missed out on Gabbert and Newton in the first, but Locker definitely has the tools to run their offense. I think he could thrive if used correctly.
40 Dallas
Anthony Castonzo
OT
Boston College
Dallas is having a very good draft if it plays out this way. He is an ideal pass blocker to protect Romo.
41 Washington
Stephen Paea
DT
Oregon St.
Albert was Haynesworthless, Paea won't be. Might take him some time to get going, but the man has some great skills that fit Washington's defensive scheme.
42 Houston
Kyle Rudolph
TE
Notre Dame
Owen Daniels is still one of the best all-around TE in this league, but it seems like that injury really affects him. Rudolph gives Schaub another dangerous option in their high powered passing attack.
43 Minnesota
Colin Kaepernick
QB
Nevada
Kaepernick will definitely need some work at the next level and Minnesota is hoping they can address QB in free agency after the draft, but he could very well be a franchise QB if brought along the right way.
44 Detroit
Rodney Hudson
OG
Florida St.
Great value in the 2nd round. Hudson could start right away at either Guard position or possibly play Center. They must do something to keep Stafford on his feet and open up lanes for Jahvid Best.
45 San Francisco
Ras-I Dowling
CB
Virginia
San Francisco passed on Amukamara and Smith in the 1st because of Von Miller being available, so Dowling here makes alot of sense. He can start right away at the #2 spot next to Clements. The 49ers are building one hell of a defense if the draft plays out this way.
46 Denver
Luke Stocker
TE
Tennessee
I think Stocker has a chance to be the best TE down the road coming out of this draft. Denver has some serious weapons on the outside with Thomas, Lloyd and Royal and Stocker gives them another weapon in the middle.
47 St. Louis
Leonard Hankerson
WR
Miami
The Rams missed out on Jones and Green in the first and could very well trade up for one of them, but Hankerson is a great talent that Bradford can take advantage of.
48 Oakland
Curtis Brown
CB
Texas
Oakland really screwed themselves in trading their first round pick, but Brown is a solid pick here. With the loss of their stud #1 CB, Brown can be the start of rebuilding their CB group.
49 Jacksonville
Quinton Carter
FS
Oklahoma
The Jaguars need some help at Safety with already having a strong group of CB. Carter is an underrated player in a shallow Safety class.
50 San Diego
Danny Watkins
OG
Baylor
Another STEAL for San Diego. Watkins has a good chance to be a first round pick, but falls because of other concerns. While the Chargers do not need much help at Guard, Watkins is too good of a talent to pass up here.
51 Tampa Bay
Quan Sturdivant
ILB
North Carolina
Ruud might be on the way out and TB wants to sure up their front 7. Sturdivant is a perfect 4-3 ILB.
52 New York Giants
Kelvin Sheppard
ILB
LSU
The Giants would have loved to get Martez Wilson in the 1st, but Sheppard has a chance to contribute from week 1.
53 Indianapolis
Mikel Leshoure
RB
Illinois
Addai and Brown seem to be complimentary backs at this point (but so is their running game in general) and Leshoure has some elite talents. He would be just another compliment to Peyton and crew.
54 Philadelphia
Davon House
CB
New Mexico St.
Someone to play next to Samuel. House needs work, but I think he is the best CB available at this point
55 Kansas City
Randall Cobb
WR
Kentucky
I literally flipped a coin on this one between Cobb and Titus Young. Cobb is a great deep threat that would give KC a dangerous compliment to Bowe
56 New Orleans
Mason Foster
OLB
Washington
Another fast rise on most draft boards. Foster is the prototypical 4-3 OLB with his insane closing speed. Creates a great LB group with Vilma manning the middle.
57 Seattle
Stefan Wisniewski
C
Penn State
Wisniewski is a starting caliber Center and helps bolster the Seattle OL. Could play Guard as well.
58 Baltimore
Titus Young
WR
Boise St.
Finally someone who can run better than a 4.7 forty.
59 Atlanta
Bruce Carter
OLB
North Carolina
Atlanta continues the run of LB by adding Carter to play behind Clayborn.
60 New England
Benjamin Ijalana
OG
Villanova
NE double dips in OL in the first two rounds, giving them yet again another great pick. This draft is turning out to be too good for NE.
61 San Diego
Jerrell Jernigan
WR
Troy
I know SD likes tall WR, but Jernigan is like Sproles at WR.
62 Chicago
Allen Bailey
DE
Miami
Great depth behind Peppers and the other DL.
63 Pittsburgh
Joesph Barksdale
OT
LSU
The Pittsburgh OL is beat up real badly. With so many of the positions along the O-Line in question, Barksdale has a great chance to start at RT from day 1. Some people have Barksdale as a 3rd or 4th round pick, but I have him as a late 2nd for sure.
64 Green Bay Sam Acho
OLB Texas
Acho has a ton of power in rushing the power, which should be a nice compliment to Clay Mathews' speed on the other side.




Round 3
65 Carolina
Marvin Austin
DT
North Carolina
Austin is a relentless pass rusher and great run stopper, and Carolina finally gets someone to put pressure on the QB so PP can shut down his WR.
66 Cincinnati
Ryan Williams
RB
Virginia Tech
Not sure if Benson will be back or not and even though Cinci fans are in love with Bernard Scott for some odd reason, he isn't an every down RB.
67 Denver
Brandon Burton
CB
Utah
Perrish Cox is still a work in progress next to Bailey and Burton can push for a starting spot.
68 Buffalo
Orlando Franklin
OT
Miami
Buffalo nailed on their first two picks on defense, now they get one of the most underrated tackles in this draft class.
69 Arizona
Dontay Moch
OLB
Nevada
Arizona needs help on off
70 Cleveland
Jurrell Casey
DT
USC
The Browns lost both Rodgers and Coleman this off season, and rightfully so. Casey used to be picked much higher in other mocks in the past, but falls here after under-performing last season.
71 Dallas
Christian Ballard
DE
Iowa
Ballard should be drafted in the 2nd round, but falls. Dallas hits on 3 of their biggest needs.
72 New Orleans
Deandre McDaniel
SS
Clemson
The Saints really don't need any help on offense and continue to improver their defense with the best SS in this class.
73 Houston
Jerell Powe
NT
Ole Miss
There is not much depth behind Okoye.
74 New England
Adrian Motten
OLB
Greatest School University I have watched this guy first hand and he is a play maker. Can play any LB position in a 3-4, but will excel in
75 Detroit
Edmond Gates
WR
Abilene Christian
Love, love, love this pick for the Lions. Gates is a speedster WR who can take serious advantage of teams doubling Calvin Johnson. If Stafford can stay healthy, he would have a great chance to put up some serious numbers with those two.
76 San Francisco
Shane Vereen
RB
California
Frank Gore is still the man there, but Vereen can be a very good back up to an already strong running game.
77 Tennessee
Clint Boling
OG
Georgia
CJ2K is great on the outside, but Tennessee needs to help him more running in the inside. The Titans interior blocking was poor last season.
78 St. Louis
Daniel Thomas
RB
Kansas St.
Compliment to Steven Jackson.
79 Miami
Will Rackley
OG
Lehigh
Miami's OL stinks outside of Long. Rackley will start from day one and pave the way for Ingram.
80 Jacksonville
Christian Ponder
QB
Florida St.
I could very well see JAX taking Ponder in the 1st or 2nd or trading back into the 1st to take Ponder. Well they get him in the 3rd.
81 Oakland
James Carpenter
OT
Alabama
Good pick here to pair with the Greek God Bruce Campbell.
82 San Diego
Kendall Hunter
RB
Oklahoma St.
Sproles is going to be a free agent. Hunter is one of the better pass catching RB in this draft and SD loves throwing to their Backs.
83 New York Giants
Chimdi Chekwa CB
Ohio St.
My 80th rated player drafted at 83 and takes advantage of one of the most dominant pass rushes in the league.
84 Tampa Bay
Ahmad Black
SS
Florida
Might not be a starter from day one, but has a chance in the future. TB is building a very, very good defense so far.
85 Philadelphia
Tyler Sash
SS
Iowa
Not sure if Mikell will be back or not, Eagles fans let me know please, but if not they will need someone to replace him. Sash is the 2nd best SS in this draft.
86 Kansas City
Jabaal Sheard
DE/OLB
Pittsburgh
Steal at this spot and adds to their already strong pass rush opposite Hali.
87 Indianapolis
John Moffitt
OG
Wisconsin
Indy double dips at OL to now block for Manning AND Leshoure.
88 New Orleans
Darell Scott
RB
Greatest School University I think come the end of April, Scott is going to be considered a 3rd or 4th round pick. His speed is the best of all RB and has great pass catching abilities. Trust me, I know first hand how good this guy can be.
89 San Diego
Ian Williams
DT
Notre Dame
Could stand to add some weight if he is going to play in the 3-4, but one of the strongest DT in this draft.
90 Baltimore
Marcus Gilbert
OT
Florida
Gilbert can play both left and right tackle. Baltimore needs depth at nearly every OL position and Gilbert helps out ALOT.
91 Atlanta
DJ Williams
TE
Arkansas
Not too many people talk about Williams, but man does this guy have some freakish athletic abilities. Sitting behind HOF Tony Gonzalez for a season could turn this guy into a stud with Matt Ryan only getting better.
92 New England
Johnny Patrick
CB
Louisville
McCourty and Butler should be the starters for a while, but Patrick adds depth to an already strong secondary.
93 Chicago
Kendric Burney
CB
North Carolina
Burney is undersized, but is a relentless player. His style would fit in perfectly with Chicago as a nickel and dime CB.
94 New York Jets
James Brewer
OT
Indiana
The Jets OL should be set for right now, but Ducasse is still a mystery if he can start over Woody.
95 Pittsburgh
Kendrick Ellis
NT
Hampton
Ideal NT at nearly 350 pounds. While NT is not a huge need at the moment, Casey Hampton is getting up there in age and Ellis from Hampton could be a nice sub for him.

96

Green Bay

Jarvis Jenkins
DE
Clemson
Jenkins is up in the air for returning, so GB replaces him with a new Jenkins.
