Newdawg’s Mock Draft 1.0

This is the Newdawg’s Mock Draft.  1.0
1. Miami  
Jake Long OT Michigan
Dolphins already trying to make a deal with the big man from Michigan.
2. St. Louis
Chris Long  DE  Virginia
The Rams need to be sure they get a productive player.  Long is as sure as it gets.
3. Atlanta  
Glenn Dorsey  DT LSU
The Falcons has needs all over.  Why not go with a man who can dominate and draw double teams along the defensive line.
4. Oakland 
Darren McFadden  RB Arkansas
The Raiders don’t need him, but DMC is an upgrade over Justin Fargas and Dominic Rhodes
5.  Kansas City
Matt Ryan  QB  Boston College
Have you seen Brodie Croyle play?  That guy is not a NFL starter, Ryan is.
6. N.Y. Jets
Vernon Gholston  DE Ohio State
I think this is the most overated guy in the top ten.  The Jets keep him from New England.
7. New England
Leodis McKelvin  CB Troy
The Pats took a hit in the secondary this offsesaon.  McKelvin helps them in the secondary and return game.
8.  Baltimore
Ryan Clady  OT  Boise State
Ozzie Newsome always makes the right pick.  Jonathan Ogden is calling it quits so they need a left tackle.
9.  Cincinnati
Sedrick Ellis  DT  USC
The Bengals toothless defense needs Ellis.  You have to stop the run in the AFC North.
10. New Orleans Saints
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie  CB  Tennessee State
The Saints take the small school corner who’s cousin is Antonio Cromartie of the Chargers.
11. Buffalo
Devin Thomas  WR  Michigan State
I think it’s too high for him, but Thomas fills a need for the Bills offense
12. Denver
Brenden Albert  OL  Virginia
Safe pick and  Albert can play guard or tackle.
13. Carolina
Derrick Harvey  DE  Florida
They could use a tackle, but they need a starter on the other side of Julius Peppers.
14. Chicago
Jeff Otah  T  Pittsburgh
Playing the Vikings and Packers defenses twice a year, protection is priority number one.
15. Detroit
Rashard Mendenhall  RB Illinois
The Lions want to run in ’08.  This is the horse they need. Might be the best RB in the draft.
16. Arizona
Philip Merling  DE Clemson
The Cards need a pass rush, especially in the NFC West. 
17.  Minnesota
Chris Williams  T  Vanderbilt
Bryant McKinnie’s off the field act is getting stale.  Williams gives the Vikings options.
18.  Houston
Mike Jenkins  CB South Florida
If you are giving Jacques Reeves 8 million up front…you have problems at corner.
19. Philadelphia
Keith Rivers  LB USC
The Eagles can’t pass on this premier talent.
20. Tampa Bay
Aquib Talib  CB  Kansas
The weed issues will scare away most teams, but not the Bucs.
21. Washington
Calais Campbell  DE Miami
Skins need to get to the quarterback. Only 33 sacks last year.
22. Dallas Cowboys
Jonathan Stewart  RB  Oregon
The Cowboys need a backup to Marion Barber and get the 3rd best RB in the draft.
23. Pittsburgh
Gosder Cherilus  T  Boston College
The BC program produces some solid guys.  You must protect 100M man Rothlisberger.
24. Tennessee
DeSean Jackson  WR California
Vince Young needs targets.  Jackson also helps the return game.
25.  Seattle
Kentwan Balmer  DT  North Carolina
The Giants model of a great front four makes its way to Seattle.
26. Jacksonville
Lawrence Jackson, DE  USC
The Jags need to keep that defensive pressure tight to compete against Indy in the division.
27. San Diego
Antoine Cason  CB  Arizona
Underrated player who will fill the nickel spot. 
28.  Dallas Cowboys
Brandon Flowers  CB  Virginia Tech
5-11 and 192 pounds.    Can play man to man.  A must in the Phillips 3-4 defense.
29. San Francisco
Limas Sweed  WR Texas
This might be high for Sweed, but the Niners can’t wait till the 2nd round to get help at WR.
30. Green Bay
Justin King  CB  Penn State
Packers go for depth and plan for the future at corner.
31. New England
Forfeited pick
32.  N.Y. Giants
Kenny Phillips  S  Miami
Leadership skills fit what G-Men are all about.

    I really don’t see them taking Flowers. He’s too slow from what I’ve heard. I also haven’t seen a mock draft (besides yours) with Stewart falling to 22, either. Can’t say i’d be too happy about this draft.
