    2008 NFL Mock Draft

    about 6 hours ago :: 66056 Views
    The best part of a future mock draft is determining the order of teams. If you care to argue about that or the players I selected, bring it on:
    • 1. Raiders: Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas - McFadden ran for 182 yards against LSU, which is basically an NFL team. Character questions, but these are the Raiders.
    • 2. Texans: Jake Long, OT, Michigan - After Matt Schaub gets sacked as often as David Carr, Houston realizes it's still got a problem.
    • 3. Vikings: Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville - Strong running game, and no passing game translates to 4-12 for the Vikes in 2007.
    • 4. Lions: Calais Campbell, DE, Miami - I was tempted to put the top WR on the board here, but Matt Millen may not be around to run the draft.
    • 5. Buccaneers: Sam Baker, LT, USC - Will this be the first pick of the post-Gruden era?
    • 6. Dolphins: Chad Henne, QB, Michigan - The ‘Fins make up for controversial '07 pick of an Ohio State WR by taking a Michigan QB. You have to love the symmetry.
    • 7. Cardinals: Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida - Pass-rushers are always valuable.
    • 8. Titans: Kenny Phillips, S, Miami - Phillips gets the edge over Antoine Cason.
    • 9. Cowboys (via Browns): Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU - Strong D-lineman for Wade Phillips' defense.
    • 10. Falcons: Limas Sweed, WR, Texas - Tempted to go QB here, but only if the Falcons are bad enough to get Brohm.
    • 11. Bills: Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College - Love those BC linemen.
    • 12. Packers: DeSean Jackson, WR, California - Finally a playmaker for Favre. Just a year too late.
    • 13. Giants: Steve Slaton, RB, West Virginia - The new Tiki.
    • 14. Rams: Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU - Dorsey is LSU's defensive star, but falls a bit because of lack of NFL size (6-foot-2, 299).
    • 15. Chiefs: Keith Rivers, OLB, USC - If the Trojans dominate this year, all their prospects will look good.
    • 16. Jaguars: Mario Manningham, WR, Michigan - They want to take over the Lions' title of team that takes the most WRs in the first round.
    • 17. Eagles: Lawrence Jackson, DE, USC - Hard to tell if the Eagles will be at 7 or 27. All depends on Donovan McNabb.
    • 18. Panthers: Early Doucet, WR, LSU - Doucet benefits from how well the LSU WRs taken this year play.
    • 19. Steelers: Paul Oliver, CB, Georgia - I wasn't sure whether to put the Steelers at No. 28 or No. 8. All depends on Mike Tomlin.
    • 20. Jets: Frank Okam, DT, Texas - Not necessarily an Eric Mangini kind of guy, but might fill need at nose tackle.
    • 21. Ravens: Shawn Crable, LB - Can play multiple positions Adalius Thomas-style.
    • 22. Redskins: Vince Hall, LB, Va. Tech - The ‘Skins actually have picks this year!
    • 23. Seahawks: John David Booty, QB, USC - Matt Hasselbeck isn't getting any younger ... or any more hair.
    • 24. Patriots (via 49ers): James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State - Passed on LBs early on in this draft.
    • 25. Cowboys: Adarius Bowman, WR, Oklahoma State - Will learn from a Terrell Owens just like Dwayne Jarrett will learn from Keyshawn Johnson in Carolina. (Meaning this is T.O.'s last year in Big D.)
    • 26. Chargers: Dan Conner, LB, Penn State - Conner is probably a better pro prospect than the Bills' second-round pick Paul Posluszny.
    • 27. Bears: Chris Long, DE, Virginia - Howie's kid.
    • 28. Broncos: Ray Rice, RB, Rutgers - Critics say he's too small, but is any running back really too small?
    • 29. Bengals: Andre Fluellen, DT, Florida State - The NFL now requires at least one Florida State defensive player to go in the first round every year.
    • 30. 49ers (via Colts): Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona - I'm not thrilled with Cason's performance at the 2008 combine.
    • 31. Saints: Colt Brennan, QB, Hawaii - Undersized system quarterback. Reminds me a little of a former Purdue quarterback.
    • 32. Patriots: Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas -- I'm assuming Asante Samuel plays for New England in '07 and then departs.

    Are you kidding me? He's not thrilled with a combine performance before it even happens? Someone has too much time on their hands.

    And why would we draft another DE? I could see us drafting either a RB, WR, or a CB, not another DE.

    I'm hoping Julius and Romo look good. If so, I see WR and CB in the first

    I sure hope a fire has been lit under his butt! I was disappointed in his game last year and hope he rebounds.....

    If the Cowboys would take a DE in the first round, they would move up a few picks & grab Harvey from Fla. This kid is going to be a great NFL pass rusher. He had a double digit sack total his sophomore year, and has a perfect frame to add weight at 6-4, 250. I don't think you can ever have enough great pass rushers.

    Having said that, I feel that taking a CB with one of the picks is crucial. Not that I'm saying Brown and/or Ball will fall flat, but the chances of success are far greater when a player is worth a first than a seventh.

    Just as a side note, I can't believe that James Laurenitus, LB, Ohio St. is not projected to go in the first round. The guy is such a tremendous football player, that if he puts on additional muscle weight in the offseason, I think he will be at the A.J. Hawk level by the end of the season.

    If I recall correctly, Okam was playing hurt all year...I believe either a shoulder injury or an ankle injury...I cant remember which one.

    But yes, he wasnt as dominant as I would have liked.

    Actually one guy to keep an eye on in Austin is that LB Derry.....He is tall and lanky, but he is the one LB last year who stepped up and made plays. If he has the same kind of year, I can see him as an early 2nd day pick, maybe even a 3rd rounder....

    I would add Slaton and Manningham to this list. I have never seen a receiver get into and out of breaks faster than Manningham.

    With the secondary being either so young or inexperienced, both the D-line & LB corp. need to step-it up. I'm also keeping a close eye on Deion Beasley. Kid has lots of skills that need harnessing.....

    We'll definately be looking at all the top RBs, especially McFadden and Slanton with cleveland's pick.
