This is the Newdawg’s Mock Draft. 1.0
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.
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.
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.
Ryan Clady OT Boise State
Ozzie Newsome always makes the right pick. Jonathan Ogden is calling it quits so they need a left tackle.
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.
Devin Thomas WR Michigan State
I think it’s too high for him, but Thomas fills a need for the Bills offense
Brenden Albert OL Virginia
Safe pick and Albert can play guard or tackle.
Derrick Harvey DE Florida
They could use a tackle, but they need a starter on the other side of Julius Peppers.
Jeff Otah T Pittsburgh
Playing the Vikings and Packers defenses twice a year, protection is priority number one.
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.
Philip Merling DE Clemson
The Cards need a pass rush, especially in the NFC West.
Chris Williams T Vanderbilt
Bryant McKinnie’s off the field act is getting stale. Williams gives the Vikings options.
Mike Jenkins CB South Florida
If you are giving Jacques Reeves 8 million up front…you have problems at corner.
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.
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.
Gosder Cherilus T Boston College
The BC program produces some solid guys. You must protect 100M man Rothlisberger.
DeSean Jackson WR California
Vince Young needs targets. Jackson also helps the return game.
Kentwan Balmer DT North Carolina
The Giants model of a great front four makes its way to Seattle.
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
32. N.Y. Giants
Kenny Phillips S Miami
Leadership skills fit what G-Men are all about.
