Mock Draft 1.0 (Mar. 11, 2009)
1. Detroit Lions - Aaron Curry - LB - Wake Forest
The BAP in the Draft and the Lions need to resist the urge to draft Stafford.
2. St. Louis Rams - Jason Smith - OT - Baylor
The Rams need to rebuild their offense and the line is where they need to start.
3. Kansas City Chiefs - Eugene Monroe - OT - Virginia
Someone needs to protect Matt Cassel's blindside and Monroe is the one to do it.
4. Seattle Seahawks - Matthew Stafford - QB - Georgia
Matt Hasselbeck is going to be 34 this year and Stafford could be the guy to take over.
5. Cleveland Browns - Everette Brown - LB - Florida State
The Browns need a pass rush and Everette Brown would fit perfectly into their 3-4 system.
6. Cincinnati Bengals - Brian Orakpo - DE - Texas
The Bengals would love to get their hands on a premium LT, but none will be available for the right value.
7. Oakland Raiders - Michael Crabtree - WR - Texas Tech
Al Davis loves his playmakers, and Crabtree is just that, a playmaker.
8. Jacksonville Jaguars - B.J. Raji - DT - Boston College
The BAP after the first seven picks. This would all but ensure that John Henderson is traded on draft day.
9. Green Bay Packers - Malcolm Jenkins - CB - Ohio State
The Packers need to replace their aging corners and Jenkins gives them the man coverage they're used to.
10. San Francisco 49ers - Mark Sanchez - QB - USC
The 49ers need a franchise QB and Sanchez is the best on the board at pick 10.
11. Buffalo Bills - Tyson Jackson - DE - LSU
The Bills need a TE, but 11 would be way too early for Pettigrew. Jackson will help shore-up the defense.
12. Denver Broncos - Rey Maualuga - LB - USC
The Broncos' terrible defense needs a renovation and the USC linebacker is a start.
13. Washington Redskins - Andre Smith - OT - Alabama
The Redskins spent tons in free agency to fill holes, but they didn't fill LT. Lucky for them, Andre Smith will fall out of the top 10.
14. New Orleans Saints - Vontae Davis - CB - Illinois
The Saints have had secondary issues for years now and Vontae is a very solid corner to build around.
15. Houston Texans - Aaron Maybin - LB - Penn State
The Texans are only a few pieces away from a great team, a strong outside linebacker could do the trick.
16. San Diego Chargers - Knowshon Moreno - RB - Georgia
The human highlight reel disappointed at the combine, but after looking at the game tape the Chargers may not be able to pass up.
17. New York Jets - Percy Harvin - WR - Florida
The Jets lost Laveranues Coles in free agency, but Harvin is an exciting replacement that gives Rex Ryan some room for creativity.
18. Chicago Bears - Jeremy Maclin - WR - Missouri
The Bears get the No. 1 WR that they need and he will help stretch the field and open holes for Matt Forte.
19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Peria Jerry - DT - Mississippi
The Buccaneers' No. 1 need this offseason is DT and lucky for them, this superb tackle is available.
20. Detroit Lions - Michael Oher - OT - Mississippi
The Lions will continue their rebuilding by resisting the urge to draft a QB and getting value for their pick with Oher.
21. Philadelphia Eagles - Brandon Pettigrew - TE - Oklahoma State
The Eagles have made it clear they don't want L.J. Smith anymore, so they're likely to take the best TE in the draft in Pettigrew.
22. Minnesota Vikings - Brian Cushing - LB - USC
The Vikings don't have a huge need at LB, but Cushing should've gone at least five spots earlier and is definitely the BAP.
23. New England Patriots - Clay Matthews - LB - USC
Mike Vrabel has been a solid linebacker for the Patriots for a long time and Clay Matthews has the heart to take over for years to come.
24. Atlanta Falcons - Sean Smith - CB - Utah
The Falcons need a CB and Sean Smith provides a good-sized, playmaking talent for their defense.
25. Miami Dolphins - Hakeem Nicks - WR - North Carolina
The Dolphins need a legitimate #1 WR to compliment Ted Ginn and Nicks has the size and hands to fit in that role perfectly.
26. Baltimore Ravens - Alphonso Smith - CB - Wake Forest
The Ravens need to get younger on their defense (shh...don't tell Ray Lewis) and Smith is a great corner to start with.
27. Indianapolis Colts - Darrius Heyward-Bey - WR - Maryland
The Colts aren't in desperate need for a receiver with Reggie Wayne and Anthony Gonzalez, but DHB's athleticism is too much to pass up.
28. Philadelphia Eagles - Eben Britton - OT - Arizona
Tra Thomas is now a Jaguar and the Eagles need a LT. The four premium guys went too early for the Eagles, but Britton falls right into their laps.
29. New York Giants - James Laurinaitis - LB - Ohio State
The Giants didn't think that Laurinaitis would ever fall to them this late in the first round, but they got lucky and end up with a starter.
30. Tennessee Titans - Michael Johnson - DE - Georgia Tech
A huge fall from Johnson will give the Titans great value for such a late pick with a great DE.
31. Arizona Cardinals - Chris Wells - RB - Ohio State
Edgerrin wants out and Hightower doesn't seem like he can take the load. Wells is a very talented workhorse RB who can eventually take over.
32. Pittsburgh Steelers - Duke Robinson - OG - Oklahoma
The Steelers need to sure up their offensive line and the mammoth guard is a great building block to get back to the running game.
33. Detroit Lions - Evander Hood - DT - Missouri
34. New England Patriots - Darius Butler - CB - Connecticut
35. St. Louis Rams - Josh Freeman - QB - Kansas State
36. Cleveland Browns - LeSean McCoy - RB - Pittsburgh
37. Seattle Seahawks - Patrick Chung - S - Oregon
38. Cincinnati Bengals - Max Unger - C - Oregon
39. Jacksonville Jaguars - D.J. Moore - CB - Vanderbilt
40. Oakland Raiders - Alex Mack - C - California
41. Green Bay Packers - Clint Sintim - LB - Virginia
42. Buffalo Bills - Larry English - LB - Northern Illinois
43. San Francisco 49ers - Jamon Meredith - OT - South Carolina
44. Miami Dolphins - Connor Barwin - LB - Cincinnati
45. New York Giants - Kenny Britt - WR - Rutgers
