BFTB Mock Draft 2.0

Alright folks, it's the time of year again when mock drafts become the most sought after time-killer by people who are bored at work.  Here at BFTB, we're lucky enough to have one "General Manager" (quotes necessary) and one Armchair GM.  About a month ago, Wonko and Steve (Grey Suit) switched off picks in a shared mock draft and the results were fantastic.

With draft stocks sliding down and rising up since then, those two are back to paint you a clearer picture of which players may be headed where by the end of this weekend.  This time, however, each gentleman has his own complete mock.  You know what the means, you bloodthirty-hounds.....COMPETITION!

Steve (Grey Suit)'s Mock Draft

#

Round 1

Player

Pos

School

1

St. Louis Rams

Sam Bradford

QB

Oklahoma

All signs are pointing to Bradford going #1 regardless whether it's to the Browns or the Rams.

2

Detroit Lions

Ndamukong Suh

DT

Nebraska

In my opinion Suh is the most polished and best overall player in this year's draft, the Lions should thank their luck stars that Bradford had a good pro-day. 

3

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Gerald McCoy

DT

Oklahoma

Like the Lions the Buccaneers should be overjoyed that Bradford showed that his arm was healthy at his pro-day.

4

Washington Redskins

Russell Okung

OT

Oklahoma State

The Redskins invested their second round pick in an aging QB, now it's time for them to invest their first round pick in some protection for him.

5

Kansas City Chiefs

Eric Berry

S

Tennessee

The fifth overall pick may be a bit high to invest in a safety but Berry projects to be a once in a life time type talent and the Chiefs have a big hole to fill in their defensive backfield.

6

Seattle Seahawks

Bryan Bulaga

OT

Iowa

This one's for you clipboard Jesus!

7

Cleveland Browns

Earl Thomas

S

Texas

The Browns need a QB but it seems like they have little to no interest in Clausen.  While Thomas is young and still a bit raw (coming out as a RS Soph), some think that he may have more natural talent than Berry.  Thomas should be able to start right away and will fill a hole in the browns secondary.

8

Oakland Raiders

C.J. Spiller

RB

Clemson

I know, I know the Raiders have the same player in McFaddenDarren McFadden but Al loves players with speed and big play making ability and Spiller has an excess of both, also McFadden can't stay on the field. McFadden

9

Buffalo Bills

Trent Williams

OT

Oklahoma

The Bills need a QB but I just don't think Clausen is the guy, at least not at #9.

10

Jacksonville Jaguars

Rolando McClain

ILB

Alabama

McClain is a beast and will be an impact player from day one in the NFL.

11

Denver Broncos

Dez Bryant

WR

Oklahoma State

Maybe Bryant can convince Deion to make a comeback in Denver, it's not like he'd be the oldest player on their D.

12

Miami Dolphins

Dan Williams

DT

Tennessee

Williams will allow Miami to truly switch to the 3-4 that Parcells and Sparano love so much.

13

San Francisco 49ers

Joe Haden

CB

Florida

The 9ers need a corner and Haden is really the one in this year's draft that is projected to be able to start from day one.

14

Seattle Seahawks

Derrick Morgan

DE

Georgia Tech

The Seahawks had 28 sacks last season, at that rate I think they could put Wonko at DE and get more pressure on the QB.

15

New York Giants

Mike Iupati

G

Idaho

I hate anything that helps Eli stay upright...

16

Tennessee Titans

Jason Pierre-Paul

DE

South Florida

Pierre-Paul  has probably the most pure pass rushing talent in this year's draft but he is still incredibly raw.  I think the Titans will roll the dice and try to find a more productive replacement for Kyle Vanden Bosch.

17

San Francisco 49ers

Anthony Davis

OT

Rutgers

Clausen may be tempting for the 9ers at this point in the draft but you really have to ask yourself is a rookie Clausen going to be better than Alex Smith at this point in his career?

18

Pittsburgh Steelers

Maurkice Pouncey

C

Florida

Someone else for Big Ben to stick his hands between their legs.

19

Atlanta Falcons

Brandon Graham

DE

Michigan

Graham is a bit undersized for an NFL DE but he is the best pass-rusher left on the board at this point in the draft and I don't think the Falcons will be able to pass on him.

20

Houston Texans

Ryan Mathews

RB

Fresno State

Sorry Charger fans, it seems like Mathews stock has been skyrocketing since the combine and RB is defiantly a spot that the Texans could use an upgrade at.

21

Cincinnati Bengals

Jermaine Gresham

TE

Oklahoma

Carson says thanks!

22

New England Patriots

Sergio Kindle

OLB

Texas

Yay the Patriots get better....

23

Green Bay Packers

Jerry Hughes

OLB

TCU

Have fun in the cold Jerry!

24

Philadelphia Eagles

Kyle Wilson

CB

Boise State

I really wanted to pick Taylor Mays here but Wilson will be too hard to pass up especially with the Eagles trading Brown this offseason.

25

Baltimore Ravens

Demaryius Thomas

WR

Georgia Tech

Yes the Ravens will finally draft a WR in the first round this year!...well maybe...

26

Arizona Cardinals

Terrence Cody

DT

Alabama

I know this is a bit of a reach but I'm not sure how many opportunities the Cardinals will have to draft a big NT over the next couple of years.

27

Dallas Cowboys

Charles Brown

OT

USC

Jerks!  I wanted to see Brown in blue and gold next season!

28

San Diego Chargers

Jared Odrick

DE

Penn State

With Williams, Spiller, Mathews, Cody, Thomas and Brown all off the board at this point I really think the Chargers are going to look to trade back to get an extra 2nd round pick for both this year and next year.  If for some reason they can't find a trade partner I think they will go with the best player on the board.

29

New York Jets

Taylor Mays

S

USC

Man Mays is going to be Scary in Rex Ryan's D.

30

Minnesota Vikings

Jimmy Clausen

QB

Notre Dame

"Jimmy Clausen please pickup the white courtesy phone you have a phone call from Aaron Rodgers."

31

Indianapolis Colts

Brian Price

DT

UCLA

Colts need some help on their interior D-Line and Price is the best DT left on the board.

32

New Orleans Saints

Sean Weatherspoon

OLB

Missouri

I love Weatherspoon, the Saints will be lucky if he falls to #32.  

Round 2

33

St. Louis Rams

Everson Griffen

DE

USC

The Rams are a mess on both sides of the ball, and with a draft as deep as this years I would imagine with a player like Griffen still on the board they will be looking to trade back with a team that needs pass-rush help to get as many picks as possible.

34

Detroit Lions

Jahvid Best

RB

Cal

I'm not totally sold on the pick because I think the Lions are going to be players in the Sproles sweepstakes and will be looking to trade the #65 overall pick to get him.

35

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Golden Tate

WR

Notre Dame

Take that Chuck Weis!

36

Kansas City Chiefs

Cam Thomas

DT

North Carolina

3-4 NT's are more rare than bigfoot sightings so teams will continue to overreach for them when available.

37

Philadelphia Eagles

Daryl Washington

LB

TCU

I'm glad to get this guy out of the Mountain West!

38

Cleveland Browns

Colt McCoy

QB

Texas

I love this pick, McCoy's skill set it perfect for a westcoast system.

39

Oakland Raiders

Bruce Campbell

OT

Maryland

It really wouldn't surprise me if the Raiders burnt their first round pick con the overly athletic under skilled OT.

40

San Diego Chargers

Roger Saffold

OT

Indiana

Well by this point the Chargers draft board is pretty much shot (well at least as we see it) teams have reached way too high for the elusive 3-4 NT's on the draft and the big 3 RBs are all off the board so once again the Chargers are going to have to go with the best talent available.  If the draft unfolds like this the Bolts are going to have to trade back up into the mid to late second round to get a shot at Gerhart or Tate.

41

Buffalo Bills

Aurelious Benn

WR

Illinois

To be honest I think the Bills will end up packaging this pick to move back up into the late first to draft Clausen.

42

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Kareem Jackson

CB

Alabama

Bucs need to continue to rebuild what was once a great D.

43

Denver Broncos

Devin McCourty

CB

Rutgers

Denver may actually have a DB under the age of 30 this season.

44

New England Patriots

Sean Lee

LB

Penn State

Woohoo the Pats get to fill another hole in their D with a solid player...

45

Denver Broncos

Nate Allen

S

USF

What?  Two players under 30 in the Bronco's secondary!? I don't belive!

46

New York Giants

Brandon Spikes

LB

Florida

Spikes may be a bit of a reach here but the Giants are desperate for ILB help and they have other holes to fill with their later picks.

47

New England Patriots

Carlos Dunlap

DE

Florida

Really the Patriots get to pick again?  This sucks...

48

Carolina Panthers

Damian Williams

WR

USC

With John Fox on the hot seat he is going to look for polished playmakers who can help out the team right away.

49

San Francisco 49ers

Vladimir Ducasse

G

UMass

The 9ers may be players for Sproles with this pick (although I think the bolts would also have to give up a late round pick). 

50

Kansas City Chiefs

Jon Asamoah

OG

Illinois

Well Matty at least you'll get a little help next year.

51

Houston Texans

Patrick Robinson

CB

Florida State

Robinson fills a need the Texans secondary and has a ton of value at this point in the draft.

52

Pittsburgh Steelers

Taylor Price

WR

Ohio

The Steelers need a speedy wideout to replace Santonio Holmes.

53

New England Patriots

Dexter McCluster

RB

Ole Miss

Really three second round picks?  The Pats love players who are versatile and McCluster is definitely that.

54

Cincinnati Bengals

Tyson Alualu

DE

Cal

The Bengals need help on the D-Line and get good value with Alualu at this spot.

55

Philadelphia Eagles

Lamarr Houston

DT

Texas

I think Andy Reid likes drafting big guys because they make him look smaller when he's roaming the sidelines.

56

Green Bay Packers

Chris Cook

CB

Virginia

If the Packers learned anything in the playoffs it's that they need help in their defensive secondary.

57

Baltimore Ravens

Rob Gronkowski

TE

Arizona State

Gronkowski has first round talent but a back injury kept him off the field for the entire 2009 season.

58

Arizona Cardinals

Navarro Bowman

OLB

Penn State

Someone has to fill the hole that Dansby left.

59

Dallas Cowboys

Morgan Burnett

S

Georgia Teach

I have one question for you Mr. Burnett..."HOW BOUT DEM COW BOYS!"

60

Seattle Seahawks

Toby Gerhart

RB

Stanford

7 Rushing TDs in 2009, yes that is not a typo 7...

61

New York Jets

Linval Joseph

DT

East Carolina

To be honest, at this point I'm not sure where else the Jets could Improve.

62

Minnesota Vikings

Brandon Ghee

CB

Wake Forest

Ghee you look good in purple.

63

Indianapolis Colts

Akwasi Owusu-Ansah

CB

IPU

Yeah I have no clue who he is either.

64

New Orleans Saints

Jimmy Graham

TE

Miami

The Saints love their TEs from the U.

 

Wonko's Mock Draft

#

Round 1

Player

Pos

School

1

St. Louis Rams

Sam Bradford

QB

Oklahoma

The Rams basically have no choice but to draft a QB here. This is a team that needs franchise QB and I think that if they can develop Bradford in the next couple of years they get back to respectability. You can't say that about them drafting a DT.

2

Detroit Lions

Gerald McCoy

DT

Oklahoma

Jim Schwartz needs an Albert Haynesworth-like presence at DT like he had in Tennessee. Word on the street is that they like McCoy for that job.

3

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Ndamukong Suh

DT

Nebraska

The NFL Champion Buccaneers of 2002 were built on the defensive line and this pick is an excellent start to rebuilding that.

4

Washington Redskins

Russell Okung

OT

Oklahoma State

With McNabb in the fold they can focus on rebuilding their patchwork offensive line.

5

Kansas City Chiefs

Trent Williams

OT

Oklahoma

This is the first touchpoint of the draft where what the Chiefs do effects other teams. The Seahawks would love to get Trent Williams here, but I'm thinking Kansas City will scoop him up making for 3 Oklahoma players picked in the top 5.

6

Seattle Seahawks

C.J. Spiller

RB

Clemson

I keep hearing that Spiller will go higher than most think and this spot makes the most sense as a surprise.

7

Cleveland Browns

Eric Berry

S

Tennessee

I get the feeling Holmgren is ready to go into 2010 with the QBs he has with maybe a developmental guy picked later in the draft. Berry has the most value.

8

Oakland Raiders

Jimmy Clausen

QB

Notre Dame

The Raiders need to give up on JaMarcus Russell and this pick gives them a chance to bring in a guy who is probably more polished in pro offenses than head coach Tom Cable. McFadden

9

Buffalo Bills

Bryan Bulaga

OT

Iowa

The Raiders made the Bills decision at QB easy. They'll have to stick with what they've got at least for one more round. They'll attempt to add depth to their woeful offensive line here.

10

Jacksonville Jaguars

Earl Thomas

S

Texas

Jacksonville has an opportunity here to just go with the best player available since other than MJD there are no truly standout players on their roster. I think this longhorn is their guy.

11

Denver Broncos

Rolando McClain

ILB

Alabama

Broncos already did their addition by subtraction at WR and I'm not sure they'll look to replace Marshall's spot here. They'll add youth to their defense instead.

12

Miami Dolphins

Dan Williams

DT

Tennessee

This pick is most likely going to be on defense and the easiest choice is to pick up a NT for their 3-4 front.

13

San Francisco 49ers

Joe Haden

CB

Florida

Haden's stock dropped from surefire top 10 pick possibly due to his 40 time. Mostly though it's because the teams picking before this spot had higher priorities. The rumor out there is that 49ers are going to pick whoever is highest on their draft board so the Gator goes here.

14

Seattle Seahawks

Derrick Morgan

DE

Georgia Tech

The Seahawks miss out on upgrade OT by going Morgan here, but he's the better choice and immediately upgrades their pass rush.

15

New York Giants

Mike Iupati

G

Idaho

The Giants would like to get McClain here so they'll be watching the Broncos and Dolphins picks closely. The settle for getting a little tougher on the offensive line.

16

Tennessee Titans

Jason Pierre-Paul

DE

South Florida

I get the sense the Titans are hoping that either Pierre-Paul or Morgan end up here. Upgrading their pass rush seems like the only option.

17

San Francisco 49ers

Anthony Davis

OT

Rutgers

The 49ers have needed to get better on the offensive line for years. Davis is a bit of a project, but they don't necessarily need an all world LT to get better.

18

Pittsburgh Steelers

Maurkice Pouncey

C

Florida

From the South? Check. Under 21? Check. Has a twin? Double Check. Roethlisberger will be happy to hear about this. Oh wait, it's also a guy. Back to the bars for Big Ben.

19

Atlanta Falcons

Brandon Graham

DE

Michigan

Supposedly the Falcons like Graham. I don't particularly see him as a fit in the 3-4, but it's their football team not mine.

20

Houston Texans

Kyle Wilson

CB

Boise State

What? You thought this would be a RB? Kubiak is a Shannahan disciple and RBs don't get picked in the first round for their offense. CB is the bigger hole anyway.

21

Cincinnati Bengals

Dez Bryant

WR

Oklahoma State

The Bengals don't give a crap about character concerns and will pick the best player on the board. That's Bryant and his baggage.

22

New England Patriots

Sergio Kindle

OLB

Texas

The Patriots will be extremely pleased if Kindle is there for them. Any 3-4 team should have him rated as a top 15 type of pick.

23

Green Bay Packers

Charles Brown

OT

USC

The Packers offensive line made people think of Swiss cheese instead of those cheesehead hats. Brown is solid if unspectacular, but all they need is just a little more time for Aaron Rodgers to shread defenses so he'll do.

24

Philadelphia Eagles

Kareem Jackson

CB

Alabama

Jackson great man-to-man coverage skills will lock down one side of the field giving Asante Samuel some additional chances at baiting QBs into picks.

25

Baltimore Ravens

Jermaine Gresham

TE

Oklahoma

Everyone seems to believe that the Ravens will upgrade their offensive weapons. Gresham can step in when Heap gets his annual injury and perhaps turn into a star given proper time to develop.

26

Arizona Cardinals

Jerry Hughes

DE/OLB

TCU

Hughes seems like a perfect pass rusher for their hybrid 4-3/3-4 defense.

27

Dallas Cowboys

Taylor Mays

S

USC

Flashy move by Cowboys. Mays had fallen too far already. All safeties can't cover, why is everyone making such a big deal about this one not being able to?

28

San Diego Chargers

Ryan Matthews

RB

Fresno State

Easy pick for the Chargers since they need a RB and nobody stands out as being a better value pick at this point.

29

New York Jets

Everson Griffen

OLB

USC

3-4s need pass rushers and Griffen is the best on the board.

30

Minnesota Vikings

Devin McCourty

CB

Rutgers

CB was a weakness for the Vikings at the end of the season and they need a solid secondary if they want to get past Aaron Rodgers of the Packers and Drew Brees of the Saints in the future.

31

Indianapolis Colts

Jared Odrick

DT

Penn State

Colts get some nice value here and pick up someone to help free up Freeney and Mathis to rush the passer.

32

New Orleans Saints

Sean Weatherspoon

OLB

Missouri

The champs biggest hole is at OLB so this works perfectly for them.  

Round 2

33

St. Louis Rams

Daryl Washington

OLB

TCU

There will be lots of downfield tackles to be made on the Rams D and Washington can chase with the best of them.

34

Detroit Lions

Jahvid Best

RB

Cal

Best adds a spark to their offense and return game.

35

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Carlos Dunlap

DE

Florida

Bucs still need DLine help even with Suh in the fold.

36

Kansas City Chiefs

Golden Tate

WR

Notre Dame

Weis gets his collegiate star wideout and the Chiefs get better on offense.

37

Philadelphia Eagles

Navarro Bowman

LB

Penn State

The Eagles stay in state and shore up their LB corps.

38

Cleveland Browns

Colt McCoy

QB

Texas

McCoy shouldn't have pressure to start right away and can get the developmental time he needs.

39

Oakland Raiders

Bruce Campbell

OT

Maryland

If the Raiders can hold their water and wait for Campbell to drop here it'll be the first draft savvy move they've made in years. I'm skeptical.

40

San Diego Chargers

Terrence Cody

DT

Alabama

This could be Saffold if they aren't sold on Cody. I'll assume they'll go NT until I hear otherwise.

41

Buffalo Bills

Tim Tebow

QB

Buffalo

We'll find out if you can run the option in the NFL in a blizzard.

42

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Patrick Robinson

CB

Florida State

The Buccaneers stay in state again and grab Ronde Barber's heir apparent.

43

Denver Broncos

Aurelious Benn

WR

Illinois

Patience pays off as the Broncos get their top WR prospect.

44

New England Patriots

Demaryious Thomas

WR

Georgia Tech

What difference does it make? The Pats will probably trade this pick to someone.

45

Denver Broncos

Tyson Alualu

DE

Cal

Broncos D  gets younger for a second time.

46

New York Giants

Brian Price

DT

UCLA

This should help the Giants pass rush come back to elite levels.

47

New England Patriots

Rob Gronkowski

TE

Arizona State

What difference does it make? The Pats will probably trade this pick to someone.

48

Carolina Panthers

Vladimir Ducasse

OG

UMass

Panthers are built on the run game and this should help keep defenders off their talented backs.

49

San Francisco 49ers

Nate Allen

S

South Florida

The 49ers upgrade their secondary again getting a solid coverage guy.

50

Kansas City Chiefs

Cam Thomas

DT

UNC

A NT for the 3-4. KC's draft is looking good.

51

Houston Texans

Toby Gerhart

RB

Stanford

The get a bruiser to go with their fumble-prone speedster Slaton.

52

Pittsburgh Steelers

Damian Williams

WR

USC

They can groom Williams to replace Hines Ward while Mike Wallace replaces Santonio Holmes.

53

New England Patriots

Sean Lee

ILB

Penn State

What difference does it make? The Pats will probably trade this pick to someone.

54

Cincinnati Bengals

Jon Asamoah

OG

Illinois

The Bengals finally replace what they lost when Steinbeck left a couple years ago.

55

Philadelphia Eagles

Nawa'akoa Misi

DE

Utah

The Eagles can't have enough pass rushers.

56

Green Bay Packers

Ricky Sapp

OLB

Clemson

This addresses the Pack's biggest need on D: pass rushing LB.

57

Baltimore Ravens

Perrish Cox

CB

Oklahoma State

Ravens need to get younger on D while still acquiring top talent. This should do the trick.

58

Arizona Cardinals

Brandon Spikes

ILB

Florida

He can't quite replace Dansby, but he should be able to fill the hole.

59

Dallas Cowboys

Lamarr Houston

DE

Texas

They'll have an opening at DE soon, the ‘Boys get an early start on filling that opening.

60

Seattle Seahawks

Roger Saffold

OT

Indiana

A top RB, a top DE and a future LT. That worked out well for Seattle.

61

New York Jets

Corey Wooten

DE

Northwestern

With all the media hype surrounding the Jets, I'm not sure anyone will even notice this pick.

62

Minnesota Vikings

Dexter McCluster

RB

Mississippi

This seems like a perfect complement to Adrian Peterson.

63

Indianapolis Colts

Amari Spievey

CB

Iowa

I'll make the assumption that they continue their trend of picking Big Ten players in every draft.

64

New Orleans Saints

Linval Joseph

DT

East Carolina

A massive run stopper to keep backs like Peterson from running all over them.
