    Special to Rivals.com College Football

    The NFL Draft order isn't set, and most of the underclassmen have yet to decide if they'll make themselves eligible for selection in April.

    However, it is never too early to take a look at how the draft might shake out if it were held tomorrow.

    Rivals.com asked its NFL Draft partner – Frank Coyle of draftinsiders.com – to put together a two-round mock draft with comments on each pick. Enjoy. (* - Underclassman)

    1. Miami (0-13)
    The Pick: Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
    The Buzz: The Dolphins are a wreck, and the team obviously has holes everywhere. Dorsey is a dominant inside force.
    2. New England (from San Francisco (3-10))
    The Pick: Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas*
    The Buzz: Patriots strike it rich and get the premier feature back and best player in this class.
    3. St. Louis (3-10)
    The Pick: Chris Long, DE, Virginia
    The Buzz: The Rams defense must improve along the front four.
    4. NY Jets (3-10)

    The Buzz: The Jets are looking for another impact defender for their front seven.
    5. Atlanta (3-9)

    The Buzz: The Falcons are a total disaster this season and the quarterback spot is their highest priority.
    6. Oakland (4-9)

    7. Kansas City (4-9)
    The Pick: Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss*
    The Buzz: The Chiefs' line must improve for this offense to return to the upper echelon in the league.
    8. Baltimore (4-9)
    The Pick: Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
    The Buzz: The Ravens defense needs younger talent on the corner, and Cason is a top-flight cover man.
    9. Cincinnati (5-8)
    The Pick: Steve Slaton, RB, West Virginia*
    The Buzz: The Bengals are looking for an impact playmaker out of the backfield for this offense.

    The Buzz: The Panthers are looking to solidify their struggling defense.
    11. Chicago (5-8)

    The Buzz: The Eagles are looking to stretch the field with a blue-chip receiver.
    13. Arizona (6-7)
    The Pick: Sedrick Ellis, DT, Southern Cal
    The Buzz: The Cardinals defense gives up too many big plays and needs a leader and anchor in the middle.
    14. Houston (6-7)
    The Pick: Kenny Phillips, FS, Miami*
    The Buzz: The Texans are looking to continue to build a playoff-caliber defense, especially in the secondary.
    15. Denver (6-7)
    The Pick: Early Doucet, WR, LSU
    The Buzz: Mike Shanahan wants more playmakers to help Jay Cutler develop.
    16. Washington (6-7)
    The Pick: Calais Campbell, DE, Miami
    The Buzz: Joe Gibbs wants a big-time pass rusher for the Redskins' front four.
    17. Detroit (6-7)
    The Pick: Andre' Woodson, QB, Kentucky
    The Buzz: The Lions are in search of a future leader on offense and may take a chance on Woodson.
    18. New Orleans (5-7)
    The Pick: Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State*
    The Buzz: The defense continues to be the Achilles' heel for the Saints.
    19. Buffalo (7-6)
    The Pick: Ryan Clady, OT, Boise State*
    The Buzz: The Bills may draft into the deep offensive tackle class this spring.
    20. Minnesota (7-6)

    The Buzz: The Giants have major problems in the secondary that need to be addressed.

    The Pick: Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida*
    The Buzz: The Jaguars love those Gators defenders, and Harvey is a good one.
    28. Pittsburgh (9-4)
    The Pick: Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU*
    The Buzz: The Steelers are looking to fortify their front three, and Jackson has the potential fill a role.
    29. Green Bay (11-2)
    The Pick: Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois*
    The Buzz: The Packers want a well-developed feature back to balance this offense.

    If by chance, we do end up making picks like those listed, we certainly can benefit from both of those players. I'm somewhat familiar with the CB Talib, but I'm not so with Jackson, other than hearing that he's listed as a top WR prospect. Can anyone on here give some info., stats, on Jackson. What kind of speed does he have, and how are his hands, how does he run his routes, work ethic, etc....etc...??? Thanks in advance to those who can provide some kind of info. on Jackson.

    Hmm.

    So who replaces the soon-to-be-departed Julius Jones?

    I'd like to see that happen in Round 1 or 2.

    He is a duel threat at WR and returner.

    I think at that spot he would be good value.

    I honestly don't know how his WR game translates to the pros but I am pretty sure that at the very least you would get an explosive return man.

    I would rather have 1 of the following 3 CB'S with the 1st of our Rd. 1 Picks:
    Malcomb Jenkins- Ohio State
    Antoine Cason- Arizona
    Mike Jenkins- South Florida

    If we can't get one of those 3 CB's, Then I would prefer to have DeSean Jackson from Cal. He would imediately be a threat as our primary punt returner. He would also be our #3 WR. We need to decide weather we should keep Crayton. Personally I say NO, but only if we can get a top flight WR via Free agency to replace him. I would bring Terry Glenn back at least to camp next year to see if anything is left since he has a resonably low cap Number. If he can't play then talk him into retirement so we can get cap relief.

    I like James Hardy from Indiana with the 2nd 1st round pick, If we get one of the CB's with the 1st Pick. He is just like Plaxico Burress and TD Machine

    Round 2: I like Chris Johnson RB East Carolina. 4.26 40 one of the top Kick off returners in the NCAA. He would be a good compliment to Barber

    1. Antoine Cason, Malcomb Jenkins or Micheal Jenkins
    1. James Hardy
    2. Chris Johnson
    3. Center/Round Offensive Guard. To compete with Procter as #4 Guard

    I'd take that draft in a heartbeat.

    That said, it's a pretty ****ty mock.

    Hmmm I would rather see Dallas go after a running back like Mendehall or the kid from Central Florida and then get a DB like Cason from Univ of Arizona.

    DeSean Jackson is a game breaker. The kid has serious speed, and cat like quickness. The only negative is he is small 5'9'-5'10" 165-180 pounds.

    If Jackson can add a little weight (180/185lbs), he will make a very good wideout with the upside of a Terry Glenn or Santana Moss, at worst R J Soward.....yeah I said it.

    The Video you put up Cponder14 is incredible

    Jackson's quickness is illegal. He is simular to Devin Hester... But he is a legit receiver too. Look at this particular video. No way he will still be available at pick 21 or Later. I would almost consider moving up to get something like this.

    If he has 4.2 speed he'll go in the top 5, book it.

    Jackson may lack ideal size but he would be awesome if used like Wes Welker. Our offense could definitely use an infusion of speed. I wouldn't mind seeing DJ and the running back from East Carolina drafted. Having said that, I think we need some speed on the other side of the ball as well.
