    Newdawg’s Mock Draft 1.0

    Filed under: Uncategorized — newyscruggs @ 5:37 pm

    This is the Newdawg’s Mock Draft. 1.0

    1. Miami
    Jake Long OT Michigan
    Dolphins already trying to make a deal with the big man from Michigan.

    2. St. Louis
    Chris Long DE Virginia
    The Rams need to be sure they get a productive player. Long is as sure as it gets.

    3. Atlanta
    Glenn Dorsey DT LSU
    The Falcons has needs all over. Why not go with a man who can dominate and draw double teams along the defensive line.

    4. Oakland
    Darren McFadden RB Arkansas
    The Raiders don’t need him, but DMC is an upgrade over Justin Fargas and Dominic Rhodes

    5. Kansas City
    Matt Ryan QB Boston College
    Have you seen Brodie Croyle play? That guy is not a NFL starter, Ryan is.

    6. N.Y. Jets
    Vernon Gholston DE Ohio State
    I think this is the most overated guy in the top ten. The Jets keep him from New England.

    7. New England
    Leodis McKelvin CB Troy
    The Pats took a hit in the secondary this offsesaon. McKelvin helps them in the secondary and return game.

    8. Baltimore
    Ryan Clady OT Boise State
    Ozzie Newsome always makes the right pick. Jonathan Ogden is calling it quits so they need a left tackle.

    9. Cincinnati
    Sedrick Ellis DT USC
    The Bengals toothless defense needs Ellis. You have to stop the run in the AFC North.

    10. New Orleans Saints
    Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie CB Tennessee State
    The Saints take the small school corner who’s cousin is Antonio Cromartie of the Chargers.

    11. Buffalo
    Devin Thomas WR Michigan State
    I think it’s too high for him, but Thomas fills a need for the Bills offense

    12. Denver
    Brenden Albert OL Virginia
    Safe pick and Albert can play guard or tackle.

    13. Carolina
    Derrick Harvey DE Florida
    They could use a tackle, but they need a starter on the other side of Julius Peppers.

    14. Chicago
    Jeff Otah T Pittsburgh
    Playing the Vikings and Packers defenses twice a year, protection is priority number one.

    15. Detroit
    Rashard Mendenhall RB Illinois
    The Lions want to run in ‘08. This is the horse they need. Might be the best RB in the draft.

    16. Arizona
    Philip Merling DE Clemson
    The Cards need a pass rush, especially in the NFC West.

    17. Minnesota
    Chris Williams T Vanderbilt
    Bryant McKinnie’s off the field act is getting stale. Williams gives the Vikings options.

    18. Houston
    Mike Jenkins CB South Florida
    If you are giving Jacques Reeves 8 million up front…you have problems at corner.

    19. Philadelphia
    Keith Rivers LB USC
    The Eagles can’t pass on this premier talent.

    20. Tampa Bay
    Aquib Talib CB Kansas
    The weed issues will scare away most teams, but not the Bucs.

    21. Washington
    Calais Campbell DE Miami
    Skins need to get to the quarterback. Only 33 sacks last year.

    22. Dallas Cowboys
    Jonathan Stewart RB Oregon
    The Cowboys need a backup to Marion Barber and get the 3rd best RB in the draft.

    23. Pittsburgh
    Gosder Cherilus T Boston College
    The BC program produces some solid guys. You must protect 100M man Rothlisberger.

    24. Tennessee
    DeSean Jackson WR California
    Vince Young needs targets. Jackson also helps the return game.

    25. Seattle
    Kentwan Balmer DT North Carolina
    The Giants model of a great front four makes its way to Seattle.

    26. Jacksonville
    Lawrence Jackson, DE USC
    The Jags need to keep that defensive pressure tight to compete against Indy in the division.

    27. San Diego
    Antoine Cason CB Arizona
    Underrated player who will fill the nickel spot.

    28. Dallas Cowboys
    Brandon Flowers CB Virginia Tech
    5-11 and 192 pounds. Can play man to man. A must in the Phillips 3-4 defense.

    29. San Francisco
    Limas Sweed WR Texas
    This might be high for Sweed, but the Niners can’t wait till the 2nd round to get help at WR.

    30. Green Bay
    Justin King CB Penn State
    Packers go for depth and plan for the future at corner.

    31. New England
    Forfeited pick

    32. N.Y. Giants
    Kenny Phillips S Miami
    Leadership skills fit what G-Men are all about.

    I like that draft but I would rather take Cason at #22 and Phillips at #28 and trade up for Ray Rice or CJ.

    How is this horrible? Stewart would be an absolute steal at 22.

    Cason at 22? Some project him to go in the 3rd round, definitely not before 28.

    I continue feel Stewart is the only back who is reasonable at 22 - I've got him as the 3rd best back in the draft

    I wish I knew just a little more about Stewart's injury. As is now, he's the guy I would predict would be the pick. I just think that the Cowboys will go after someone a little bigger and stronger than Felix Jones.

    I will say this though, Mel Kiper thinks that Felix Jones is a lot like Reggie Bush. I know that has its pros and cons, but he is someone you will have to account for on defense.

    Stewart is really starting to drop on many mocks...but again, they are just mocks and we are here to make our own opinions. So, yes, if you like him a ton, he could be a steal at 22.

    What happens if Stewart's toe injury isn't fully healed when TC opens? His agent's guarantee doesn't mean anything. Last year Stanbach was supposed to be ready to go by TC, but another problem occurred because he off his feet so long. If Cowboys sign a vet RB who can handle #2 RB job (good rusher/receiver/blitz pickup) until Stewart can work his way in then I'm okay with drafting Stewart.

    Does he really think Flowers is 5-11?

    To me, you have to ask what has happened between now and the season that hurt his stock. Early on many "experts" had him in the top 10, and VERY few thought he'd be around at 22. So... he has a small foot surgery that should be a non issue by training camp and he's dropping below 22? McGahee tore his ACL and MCL that would surely sideline him for much longer. Didn't he go right around 22? To me, this is an example of fans and "experts" creating news because we have nothing better to do.

    I think there is a great chance that Stewart drops all the way to Dallas, and I don't think the surgery is the only reason. I think a couple of the RBs may fall a bit due to a run at other positions. Stewart's toe only gives teams more reason to go get the other player they wanted.

    Do you really think he isn't?

    He got measured by someone at the combine or his pro day is all I'm saying.

    I agree, it could be an overreaction. Sometimes they do over-analyze this stuff. I think besides the toe issue, some are concerned with the system that Stewart played in. It's becoming a bit of an issue with scouting the backs lately because there are so many odd systems. 1st the teams were burned by system QBs (see Andre Ware, Klingler, Wuerffel) and now folks are wary of the RBs. It is not the same, but is worth a closer look. Recall that McGahee ran out of a pro set and was considered pretty much a sure thing before his injury.

    I've been hoping the team gets Stewart since the Browns finished 10-6 and mcfadden became a pipe dream.

    He's the real deal
