Early Two-Round Mock for 2009 NFL Draft

Jesse AbelsonContributor IOctober 26, 2008

This mock draft is assuming Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow, Colt McCoy, Knowhson Moreno and Matt Stafford stay in school for next season.

*Asterisk indicates another team is expected to own the same record.


First round

1. *Detroit Lions: Michael Oher, OT 

Detroit needs a Quarterback, but no Quarterback can be good against a horrible Offensive Line. Michael Oher can play guard or tackle. In seven games this season, Detroit has surrendered 25 sacks and has the second worst rushing game in the NFL. If the lions do not take an Offensive Lineman look for them to take a Quarterback.

2. *Kansas City Chiefs: Sam Bradford, QB

It's never good when you have to have Tyler Thigpen as your starting Quarterback. Sam Bradford reminds me of Matt Ryan. They are both 6'4, have a very accurate pass, and can throw the deep ball very well. Tyler Thigpen has had one good game so far, If he keeps having a solid season, look for the Chiefs to go for an Inside Linebacker.

3. Cincinnati Bengals: Eugene Monroe, OT

This is very simple math. The Bengals have given up 28 sacks in 8 games, allowed only 3.4 yards per carry and the starting left tackle is almost 30 years old. They need help on the Offensive line because once Carson Palmer comes back they will be better.

4. Oakland Raiders: Michael Crabtree, WR

Oakland is a very young team, the have JaMarcus Russell at Quarterback and McFadden at Running back. But who do they have at Wide Receiver? Their leading receiver is Tight End Zack Miller and next is 30 year-old Javon Walker who only has 12 catches this season. The Raiders need a Wide Receiver, and Crabtree is the best one available.

5. Seattle Seahawks: Andre Smith, OT

6. Houston Texans: Malcolm Jenkins, CB

7. San Fransisco 49ers: Taylor Mays, S

8. *Miami Dolphins: Vontae Davis, CB

9. *Minnesota Vikings: Mike Mickens CB

6. Houston Texans: Brandon Tate, WR

7. San Fransisco 49ers: Greg Middleton, DE

8. Minnesota Vikings: Nathan Brown, QB
