Mock Draft 2.0: One Day before the Draft

You can find my first mock draft here.

For my second (and final) mock draft, if there was no change to the pick, I obviously put "NO CHANGE." If there was a change, I explain it. In the case of certain teams (Jets, Jaguars), I put my opinion on them trading up or down in the draft.

Enjoy.

 

1. Detroit Lions—Matthew Stafford, QB, Georgia

NO CHANGE

 

2.  St. Louis Rams—Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia

NO CHANGE

 

3.  Kansas City ChiefsAaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest

NO CHANGE

 

4.  Seattle SeahawksJason Smith, OT, Baylor

NO CHANGE


5.  Cleveland BrownsMichael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech

NO CHANGE

 

6.  Cincinnati BengalsAndre Smith, OT, Alabama

NO CHANGE

 

7.  Oakland RaidersAaron Maybin, DE, Penn State

NO CHANGE

 

8.  Jacksonville JaguarsB.J. Raji, DT, Boston College

There is no change here, but I would like to say that if this scenario happens for the Jaguars, I fully expect them to be trading out of this spot. The Redskins and the Jets are the most likely candidates, with the Jets leading, I would say. They fell into a great spot.

 

9.  Green Bay PackersTyson Jackson, DE, LSU

NO CHANGE

 

10.  San Francisco 49ersBrian Orakpo, DE, Texas

NO CHANGE

 

11.   Buffalo BillsMichael Oher, OT, Ole Miss

NO CHANGE

 

12.   Denver BroncosMark Sanchez, QB, USC

NO CHANGE

 

13. Washington RedskinsEbon Britton, OT, Arizona

The Redskins need offensive line help, big time. The big four are gone, so they make the first reach of the draft in Britton. On draft day, I don’t expect them to be drafting 13th overall.

 

14.   New Orleans Saints—Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State

NO CHANGE

 

15.  Houston TexansClay Matthews, OLB, USC

NO CHANGE

 

16.   San Diego ChargersWilliam Beatty, OT, Conneticut

The offensive line of the Chargers play dropped drastically from two years ago. They shore up the offensive line to continue to have one of the best offenses in the league.

 

17.   New York  JetsChris "Beanie" Wells, RB, Ohio State

There is no change here, but if Sanchez falls to the eight spot, I expect them to trade up. If he doesn’t last, I expect them to trade down.

 

18.   Denver BroncosEverette Brown, DE, Florida State

NO CHANGE


19.   Tampa Bay BuccaneersJosh Freeman, QB, Kansas State

NO CHANGE

 

20.   Detroit LionsRobert Ayers, DE, Tennesee

They would hope either Britton or Beatty falls to them here, but the run on offensive linemen went quick. They take one of the best 4-3 defensive ends in the draft at the 20 spot to be a focal point for their defense alongside Sims.

 

21.   Philadelphia EaglesVontae Davis, CB, Illinois

With the news of Sheldon Brown wanting a new contract or to be traded, it added to a small list of needs for the Eagles. They grab Davis here on his athleticism, and to play the nickel for the first year. He will take over for Sheldon Brown when he is traded.


22.   Minnesota VikingsJeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri

No one expected Maclin to last this far, but it is been proven that the trenches are more needed than wide receivers. The Vikings have stated that they will be looking for offensive help in the draft, and since they have the best RB in the league, they go wide receiver here. Pettigrew is also another possible choice.


23.   New England PatriotsRey Maualaga, MLB, USC

NO CHANGE

 

24.   Atlanta FalconsPeria Jerry, DT, Ole Miss

NO CHANGE

 

25.   Miami DolphinsSean Smith, CB/S, Utah

NO CHANGE


26.   Baltimore RavensDarrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Maryland

NO CHANGE

 

27.   Indianapolis ColtsEvander Hood, DT, Missouri

NO CHANGE


28.   Buffalo BillsMichael Johnson, DE, Georgia Tech

NO CHANGE


29.   New York GiantsBrandon Pettigrew, TE, Oklahoma State

NO CHANGE

 

30.   Tennessee TitansDarius Butler, CB,  Connecticut

NO CHANGE


31.   Arizona CardinalsKnowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia

NO CHANGE

 

32.  Pittsburgh SteelersAlex Mack, C, California

NO CHANGE
