Mock draft 1.0

Posted: October 5, 2010 by ciottas2cents in Ciotta, Football, NCAA, NFL

Here is my first mock draft of the year

1. Buffalo Bills-QB Andrew Luck Stanford-Has all the tools of a top-tier NFL quarterback with elite accuracy and underrated mobility

2. Detroit Lions-CB Patrick Peterson LSU-Shutdown corner with the ability to match up one-on-one with the best WR’s in the league. Dangerous in the open field returning interceptions and on returns

3. Cleveland Browns-DE Robert Quinn North Carolina-Excellent pass rusher who will make plays

4. Carolina Panthers-WR A.J. Green-Georgia-Best WR in the country should not be knocked for off field issues.

5. Oakland Raiders-QB Jake Locker Washington-Perfect eample of a boom or bust type of prospect. Could be hall of famer or out of the league in 5 years.

6. St. Louis Rams-WR Ryan Broyles-Oklahoma-Getting better every week and should be excellent #1 receiver for years

7. Jacksonville Jaguars-DE Marcell Dareus Alabama-Could play inside or outside and has been extremely productive in big games

8. San Francisco 49ers-DE Adrian Clayborn Iowa-Dangerous off the edge, solid against the run.

9. New York Giants-RB Mark Ingram Alabama-Being picked by the team his dad played for, could be the every down back the Giants need to replace a worn down Brandon Jacobs

10. Denver Broncos-DE Allen Bailey-Still developing and has the versatility to play multiple positions. Maybe the most upside of any defender in the draft

11. Arizona Cardinals-CB Prince Amarakamara Nebraska-Elite player on a great defense. Should step right in for Arizona

12. Washington Redskins-WR Julio Jones Alabama-Needs to be consistent, but has as much talent as any WR available in the last couple of years

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-OLB Akeem Ayers UCLA-Makes plays all over the field. Relentless pass rusher and great cover LB with hands to take the ball out of the air.

14. Seattle Seahawks-QB Ryan Mallett Arkansas-Outstanding arm and size but questions abound. Will he be Dan McGwire?

15. San Diego Chargers-DE Ryan Kerrigan Purdue-Not overly flashy, but productive and the type of versatile player San Diego would love

16. Minnesota Vikings-T Ryan Castonzo Boston College-Taking a QB here would be a reach so the Vikes select the best T available in a weak class

17. Dallas Cowboys-T Nate Solder-Rebuilding the line is a priority and Solder looks like a 10 year starter

18. Kansas City Chiefs-DE Da’Quan Bowers Clemson-Highly recruited player finally putting it all together will make an excellent NFL rusher

19. Philadelphia Eagles-CB Ras-I Dowling Virginia-Great size and speed player on a bad team. Not much attention paid to him but a solid corner

20. Tennessee Titans-DE Cameron Heyward Ohio State-Equally great against run or pass, the son of Ironhead Heyward is exacctly what the Titans need

21. Cincinnati Bengals-RB Daniel Thomas Kansas State-Bull of a runner with deceptive long range speed. A former QB who will be a game changer for the Bengals

22. Miami Dolphins-FS Rahim Moore UCLA-Dynamic playmaker in the passing game, needs to improve in run support or be flanked by an outstanding SS

23. New England Patriots-WR Jonathan Baldwin Pittsburgh-When he keeps his head in the game he can be as good as anyone. Future replacement for Randy Moss

24. Houston Texans-DT Marvin Austin North Carolina-Impact interior lineman who can get inside pressure to aid a porous secondary

25. Baltimore Ravens-LB Bruce Carter North Carolina-Solid fundamentally, he is ready to see the field now

26. New York Jets-RB Allen Bradford USC-The Jets love to run and play defense, this guy can chew up clock

27. Chicago Bears-DT Nick Fairley Auburn-Emerging playmaker who may be able to play his way into the top 10

28. Atlanta Falcons-DT Jurrell Casey USC-Best player on a great D-Line, Casey has outstanding potential

29. Green Bay Packers-RB Ryan Williams Virginia Tech-Packers need a back to complement Ryan Grant and Williams should be their guy

30. Indianapolis Colts-TE Kyle Rudolph Notre Dame-Peyton Manning will love this guy who excels in the red zone

31. New Orleans Saints-CB Janoris Jenkins Florida-Shutdown ability ala Deion Sanders but may be a little small

32. Pittsburgh Steelers-T Gabe Carimi Wisconsin-Steelers love drafting lineman and this one is a good one who can play either T or G. Well coached in college
