    2009 Mock Draft Round 1

    #1) Atlanta Falcons (2008 First Round Pick: QB Matt Ryan): Offensive Tackle, Michael Oher, Mississippi
    Atlanta chose both a Franchise Quarterback and a Left Tackle last year in the First Round. Turns out Sam Baker was better off at Left Guard and the Falcons take the best Left Tackle prospect since Orlando Pace to anchor their Offensive Line and protect Matt Ryan's blind side.

    #2) San Fransisco 49ers (2008 First Round Pick: DT Kentwan Balmer): Quarterback, Cullen Harper, Clemson
    Alex Smith is a bust with a capital B. I have heard a lot of talk about the Niners skipping a quarterback in Round 1 to take Hunter Cantwell out of Louisville in Round 2. Well Cantwell is being projected by potential, not production and I think he is a third round prospect until he produces for at least a season. Until then Harper is the pick.

    #3) Miami Dolphins (2008 First Round Pick: OT Jake Long Michigan): Wide Reciever, Michael Crabtree, Texas Tech
    Who does Miami have at reciever? Try Ted Ginn JR, Greg Camarillo, Derek Hagan, Ernest Wilford, and David Kircus. Leading Reciever, Wilford with 45 Receptions and 518 Yards. Dan Marino wouldn't succeed with that lousy group. How do you remedy this problem? You take a tall, explosive reciever with good hands. Virginia Tech's Michael Crabtree very well could be the best Wide Reciever Prospect since Braylen Edwards and could cure the Dolphins Reciever woes.

    #4) Kansas City Chiefs (2008 First Round pick: DT Glenn Dorsey): Middle Linebacker, James Laurinaitis, Ohio State
    The Kansas City Chiefs have begun the process of creating a Defense reminicent of the old Tampa Bay Defense of the late 1990's and early 2000's and should continue building on a very good 2008 Defensive Draft. Road Warrior James can do it all on a football field, including cover recievers, and is a locker room leader to add to a great young defensive nucleus that includes DT Glenn Dorsey, DE Tamba Hali, OLB Derrick Johnson, and CB Will Pool.

    #5) Chicago Bears (2008 First Round Pick: OT Chris Williams): Quarterback, Matt Stafford, Georgia
    Chicago helped themselves in the 2008 NFL Draft at Wide Reciever, Offensive Tackle, Running Back, and potentially Strong Safety. However for a team that used three starting Quarterbacks they had twelve draft picks in 08 and neglected to draft a single Quarterback. If they draft this high in 2009 they will have no choice but to draft a quarterback here. Matt Stafford has a huge arm and can make most of the throws. He may learn as a backup for a year or two.

    #6) Arizona Cardinals (2008 First Round Pick: Dominique Rogers-Cromartie): Running Back, Chris Wells, Ohio State
    Edgerin James has a lot of miles on his body and no replacement is behind him. Chris Wells is a special Talent who can run over, around, or through any type defender. He breaks all arm tackles and keeps his feet moving. Wells is quite possibly the most talented player in this draft.

    #7) Cincinnati Bengals (2008 First Round Pick: MLB Keith Rivers): Running Back, Knowshon Moreno, Georgia
    Rudy Johnson's body has been worn down with all the carries and his running style. With Johnson being a shell of his former self what do the Bengals do? They take another power back. Moreno is a very good runner who fits into coach Marvin Lewis' offensive scheme. If Moreno can't run over someone, he sure as heck gives them a bruise trying. For a power back Moreno is very good at catching the ball out of the backfield.

    #8) Baltimore Ravens (2008 First Round Pick: QB Joe Flacco): Cornerback, Malcolm Jenkens, Ohio State
    Baltimore needs a lockdown Corner to add to an aging defensive core. Jenkins may have a shot to be the number two Corner in 2009 and the number one Corner in 2010 for the Ravens. This will also help to continue the youth movement on a rapidly aging defense.

    #9) Oakland Raiders (2008 First Round Pick: RB Darren McFadden): Defensive End, Michael Johnson, Georgia Tech
    Johnson is the best Defensive End in this draft. Al Davis, AKA Darth Raider, has spared no expense to make his Defense good. He needs to continue building on that premice. Fortunately the fact Johnson is flashy and fast so the pick is in the bag

    #10) Detroit Lions (2008 First Round Pick: OT Golder Charilus): Middle Linebacker, Rey Maualuga, USC
    This is pick is a long time coming. I'm looking at the Detroit Lions roster and don't see a starting Middle Linebacker. Will they try to plug Cliff Avril in there? Detroit needs a young, pure, energized, Middle Linebacker. Maualuga, is a frightning athlete in the middle and would be a great addition.

    #11) Tennessee Titans (2008 First Round Pick: RB Chris Johnson): Wide Reciever, Percy Harvin, Florida
    Tennessee has screwed up two drafts by not getting Quarterback Vince Young weapons who can make a difference in the game. This time they actually get it right. Harvin is a stretch at #11 but he makes good cuts after the catch, has great field vision, speed, good hands, and good agility.

    #12) St. Louis Rams (2008 First Round Pick: DE Chris Long): Offensive Tackle, Andre Smith, Alabama
    A massive offensive tackle to guard Mark Bulger if Orlando Pace gets injured again. This will also give St. Louis a Massive successor to Pace when he retires. Andre Smith is a Left Tackle with great athleticism who can protect Bulger's blind side.

    #13) Washington Redskins: (2008 First Round Pick: None): Defensive End, Tyson Jackson, LSU
    Washington has a few holes on defense and one big one is Defensive End. Jackson would easily give Washington a strong presence and help a young core of good Defensive Backs.

    #14) New York Jets (2008 First Round Pick: Vernon Gholeston): Running Back, LeSean McCoy, Pittsburgh
    Thomas Jones is turning 31 soon and the Jets dont have a replacement set. McCoy is explosive, has a third gear, makes good cuts, and catches the ball well.

    #15) Minnesota Vikings (2008 First Round Pick: None): Offensive Tackle, Phil Loadholt, Oklahoma
    Minnesotta has Tarvarious Jackson and Drafted John David Booty. Jackson has poor pocket awareness and Booty has small hands. Put those reasons with keeping Running Back Adrien Peterson healthy and the Vikings should continue building that line.

    #16) Denver Broncos (2008 First Round Pick: OT Ryan Clady): Strong Safety, Taylor Mays, USC
    Tough call here. A big time Strong Safety in Taylor Mays, or a guy to help create turnovers and be a presence in the run defense. Mays has great instincts, and is a hard hitter. This gives Denver the perfect replacement for John Lynch.

    #17) Buffalo Bills (2008 First Round Pick: CB Leodis McKelvin): Outside Linebacker/Defensive End, George Selvie, South Florida
    Buffalo needs a pure pass rusher. In Selvie they get a pure pass rusher that can rush with a hand down or stand up and play Outside Linebacker. The Bills secondary is very talented and young, Selvie would help them immensly.

    #18) Houston Texans (2008 First Round Pick: OT Duane Brown): Cornerback, Vontae Davis, Illinois
    The Texans could use another pass rusher to take preasure off Right End Mario Williams. Instead they get help at Corner for Donta Robinson. In order for this to work Jaques Reeves had to have been a bust in 08 Free Agency but this would make the Texans Pass Defense almost scary, ALMOST.

    #19) New Orleans Saints (2008 First Round Pick: DT Sedrick Ellis): Free Safety/Strong Safety, Myron Rolle, Florida State
    Rolle is a duel Safety with great ball skills, good in coverage, and decent close to the line of scrimage. He does everything well and would be a great upgrade to the New Orleans Secondary.

    #20) Philadelphia Eagles (2008 First Round Pick: None): Wide Reciever, Darrius Heyward-Bey, Wisconsin.
    Donavin McNabb is always wining about never having a big reciever with a big name to throw to. The only problem is that he can't get along with any of the big named recievers he wants. Well Bey doesn't have a big name but he is a big reciever, very good hands, and potential to make McNabb stop wining about this subject at least.

    #21) Pittsburgh Steelers (2008 First Round Pick: RB Rashard Mendenhall): Offensive Guard, Duke Robinson, Oklahoma
    The biggest need in Pittsburgh is Offensive Guard. The Steelers lost Alen Faneca leaving their Offensive Line as average at best.That wont due with injury prone Running Back Willie Parker, The One Billion Dollar Man Quarterback Ben Roethlesberger. The team just can't pass up on Robinson who will be one of the leagues best Guards for the next decade.

    #22) Philidelphia Eagles F/CAR (2008 First Round Pick: None): Offensive Tackle, Ciron Black, LSU
    I know Phili took three Offensive Tackles in 2008 but I dont see any of them making a difference any time soon. Black is a very good pass blocker to protect whiney McNabb, and Black is a steal at #22.

    #23) Dallas Cowboys (2008 First Round Pick: RB Felix Jones): Wide Reciever, Jeremy Maclin, Missouri
    Terry Glenn is on the verge of retirement with a bum knee and Terrell Owens is now in his mid 30's. Maclin has height, great speed, good hands, and is a threat as a Return Man. He would be able to develope more as the #4 Reciever or #3 if Glenn retires, maybe even jump Patrick Crayton at the #2 spot before moving up again when TO retires.

    #24) Jacksonville Jaguars (2008 First Round Pick: DE Derrick Harvey): Defensive Tackle, Fili Moala, USC
    Jacksonville's Run Defense suffered without Marcus Stroud helping man the middle. The team was still good enough to win even with a worse defense but a defensive drop wont fly in Jacksonville. Moala isnt much of a pass rusher but he is a good run stuffer.

    #25) Seattle Seahawks (2008 First Round Pick: DE Lawrence Jackson): Tight End, Chase Coffman, Missouri
    Seattle doesnt have any threats at tight end that can make anyone worry. Jeb Putzier won't scare anyone into watching him extra close. Chase Coffman is a good pass catching Tight End and can give Quarterback Matt Hasslebeck a good target when he is rushed.

    #26) New York Giants (2008 First Round Pick:FS Kenny Philips): Defensive End, Greg Hardy, Mississippi
    Michael Strahan won't play much longer and the Giants will take a hit in their Pass Defense if they don't replace him. Greg Hardy is a very good pass rusher and can turn into a good runstuffer at the NFL level.

    #27) Cleveland Browns (2008 First Round Pick: None): Outside Linebacker, Brian Cushing, USC
    Willie McGinnist has said 2008 will be his last season meaning the Browns will have a hole to fill at Outside Linebacker. Brian Cushing is extremely athletic, a good pass rusher, and has a nose for the ball. Cushing will fit well in the Browns young Linebacking Core.

    #28) San Diego Chargers (2008 First Round Pick: CB Antoine Cason): Offensive Tackle, Alex Boone, Ohio State
    Boone is one of the reasons Running Back Chris Wells is as successful as he is. Boone is an incredible Run Blocker and that teams with very good Run Blocking skills make him a great pick here. Boone could be an instant upgrade at the thin San Diego Offensive Tackle spot.

    #29) New England Patriots (2008 First Round Pick: MLB Jerod Mayo): Strong Safety, William Moore, Missouri
    Rodney Harrison is what, sixety years old. Needless to say he will retire soon. Moore can step up in run support, is good in coverage and a pretty good tackler. Would be a very good replace for Harrison.

    #30) Green Bay Packers (2008 First Round Pick: None): Strong Safety, Kam Chancellor, Virginia Tech
    Green Bay has practically zero holes in their roster and GM Ted Thompson gets to do what he loves; choose the best player available. Kam Chancellor is not only the best player left but someone who perfectly fits into the Packers' defensive plans.

    #31) Indianapolis Colts (2008 First Round Pick: None): Middle Linebacker, Darry Beckwith, LSU
    Indianapolis doesn't have many holes. The Colts would be better off to get depth or an upgrade at Middle Linebacker with few other needs.

    #32) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: (2008 First Round Pick: CB Aqib Talib) Quarterback, Sam Bradford, Oklahoma
    Bradford is more accurate than any quarterback in the Draft and has a good arm. He would fit very well into the Bucs offense. This could be a perfect fit for Tampa and their Quarterback Army.

      Cullen Harper? Oh god no. I like the Colts, Cowboys, and Jags picks, among others.

        Stafford's too high. Bears won't want to have their top 5 QB sit on the bench for a season.

        Maualuga would be a good value pick for the Lions, but Jordan Dizon is slated to play MLB as of now. Dizon won't shift over to WILL, because Ernie Sims is there.

        Titans won't take a WR. They SHOULD, but they won't.

        Seahawks just took John Carlson, and will start him as a rookie. I don't think they'll spend another first day pick on a TE.

        Giants shouldn't need Greg Hardy. Tuck can take Strahan's old position. And if not, they can shift Kiwanuka there. Bryan Kehl can take over at SAM.

          I like Lauranitis but if KC is picking that high you would have to think that Croyle/Thigpen sucked and they need a QB. So why not give them say Sam Bradford who you say is the most accurate QB in the draft

            Now you have to deal with more jokes about you and Matt.

            Thanks for the mock. I'll pay more attention to the college players this year.

              Waffles: Yes I think Tampa will win the Super Bowl. One of many bold projections which include the Cullen Harper pick. Better to be bold than go with the flow.

              Niner: Like I said Niner. Until someone like Hunter Cantwell steps up as a seconteer quarterback worth taking early in Round 2 I go with Harper here. No, I dont think they will take another Run 'n'Shoot QB like Tebow.

              Dan: Yes Dan I agree. Stafford is too high. But lets face it, the Bears need a leader at the spot and they have no clue at this point.
              - If Dizon proves he can handle the Job adaquitly I will change this pick to a Wide Reciever to keep Matt Millen in good graces with Lions Fans.
              -Also, the Titans were a tough pick. Ideally they would trade down to get a Defensive Tackle or another Running Back but I don't do that so I'm going to pretend they have common sense for the time being.

              Titan: I know I have Laurinaitis high but I'm not counting out Croyle after one year as starter and James is someone who could finish making the Chiefs on track with the Packers as the best young Front 7 in the league. If Croyle fails miserably this season I may go with Stafford or an Offensive Lineman.

              Guapo: Me and Matt. Scary.

              Hope I cleared those comments up. Thanks for commenting.

                "Donavin McNabb is always wining about never having a big reciever with a big name to throw to."

                This couldn't be further from the truth, he has stressed that Kevin Curtis is the first 1,000 yard receiver he's had since T.O. The one time he actually said something about additions, he asked for playmakers. He didn't say anything about big receivers or big names. He didn't even say anything about receivers.

                Oh, and if you're going to call someone whiny, at least spell their name right.

                  I have heard him do it in at least 1 ESPN interview for the last 2 years. Then too he has said many things so it's a who cares deal.

                  I have never been a good speller so your criticism of that means little to me . Please if you want to criticise me, criticise me on the pick I made for them.

                    The Lions are stupid, but there's really no logical reason to give them an MLB after they've drafted one the season before. Even if Dizon sucks, logic dictates that it requires more than one season to evaluate a prospect.

                      I won't because I approve of the picks. I just don't want everyone thinking that McNabb is a crybaby, he's not.

                        I like it but your Michael Crabtree to Miami is ludacris. They drafted Ted Ginn jr. ninth overall a year ago. It's too much of a luxury pick. They could go for corner in Jenkins (need), a MLB to replace Zach Thomas in James Lauranities (need), or a 3-4 OLB in Michael Johnson or George Selieve (need).

                          The Niners Cullen Harper pick is an interesting one. I actually think the Alex Smith situation is one of the more intriguing plotlines of this season, because if he, as most predict, doesn't finally put up yards and W's then
                          a) the niners will have a top-3 pick (unless Gore plays out of his mind)
                          B) he is in fact a bust and the question will arise of whether or not the Niners will being willing to spend another high pick on a QB
                          c) will there be a QB high enough on their board to take so early

                              With those mediocre wideout to go with Ginn who isnt even close to being a #1 reciever. Not as ludacris as you think.
