7 round mock draft - the final edition


This will be my final installment of the 2011 NFL mock draft. It took a little over a month to complete because of the HTML formatting. Enjoy and feel free to critisize it. I won't be offended. Compensatory picks are indicated in pink.

Pick # Team Team Needs Pick Explanation
1 Carolina Panthers QB, 2DT, WR1, RG, RDE, TE, CB Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri Gabbert is not the best QB prospect we have seen in a draft but he is definitely a safer pick than Newton. Rumors are the Panthers won't take a defensive player with this pick which leaves us with Green, Newton, and Gabbert. If surrounded with proper talent, Gabbert can become a stud
2 Denver Broncos 2DT, LB, TE, DE, S, RB2, LT, RT, CB3 Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama This pick is going to come down to whoever the Broncos rate as the best DT. I have Dareus as the #1 DT in this draft so I mocked him here. Dareus presents an elite skill set and should have an Ndamakong Suh type impact in year 1
3 Buffalo Bills QB, LT, DE, Rush LB, RT, WR, TE, ILB, CB3 Cam Newton, QB, Auburn Newton is a huge risk but I think he is worth it here. He has the physical tools to become a superstar and fits perfectly in Chan Gailey's system.
4 Cincinnati Bengals DE, RB, WR, ILB, QB, LG, SS, K, KR A.J. Green, WR, Georgia I think Bowers could be the pick but his pro day was not that good. Green is the best WR in this draft and will help lessen the burden of the TOCHO show possibly leaving. Maybe he can convince Palmer to stay as well
5 Arizona Cardinals QB, LT, 2Rush LB, LG, RT, CB, FS Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M Miller is an elite OLB for a 3-4 defense and could be the next Demarcus Ware. He is a sack machine and an athletic freak. He will help fill a major void at OLB. If one of the 2 QB's are available, they could be the pick as well.
6 Cleveland Browns WR, RT, DE, DT, Weak LB, CB, RG, SS, K Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn The Browns have to rebuild their entire front 7 as they switch to a 4-3. Fairley is a great pass rusher at the DT spot and has good size. He needs to get a little better in run support but that can be taught.
7 San Francisco 49ers QB, DE, Rush LB, CB, FS, WR, OT Patrick Peterson, CB, Nebraska Peterson is by far the BPA here and fills a relatively large need. He will be an instant starter and an eventual pro bowler.
8 Tennessee Titans QB, LG, ILB, C, DE, Weak LB, SS, DT Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson Bowers is the BPA and fills a need at DE. He is a great pass rusher and will fit in Tennessee's 4-3 Defense. He needs to prove that he is not a one year wonder which is why he is available here.
9 Dallas Cowboys CB, RT, FS, RE, LG, SS, DL, WR Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska This pick could go a bunch of ways. The Cowboys could take Tyron Smith but I think Amukamara presents a better player and better value.
10 Washington Redskins QB, WR, RT, Rush LB, ILB, NT, CB, RE, FS, RG, C, FB, K, P Tyron Smith, OT, USC Smith is a great tackle prospect that is used to playing RT. He fills a huge need at RT. The Redskins could go with Julio Jones but I think good WR's will be available in the mid rounds
11 Houston Texans NT, 2Rush LB, FS, SS, CB, WR, P, DL Robert Quinn, OLB, UNC Quinn, had he played this year, would likely be a top 3 pick. At this point, he presents great value for the Texans, who are switching to a 3-4 defense. Quinn will give them an elite 3-4 OLB that can help the rebuilding process for the Texans D.
12 Minnesota Vikings QB, 2OLB, RT, 2S, TE, CB, RG, WR, LE, K, C, DT Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin Carimi is the best player available and his positional versatility makes it better. He can fill the void at RT for the Vikings right away and eventually transition to LT.
13 Detroit Lions 2 OLB, CB, LT, C, SS, RB Akeem Ayers, OLB, UCLA Ayers is the only player available that makes sense. Solder is a huge reach. Jimmy Smith is a reach. While Ayers is a slight reach, he fills a major need.
14 St. Louis Rams WR, RG, DT, Weak LB, SS, TE, RB, CB, DE Julio Jones, WR, Alabama Jones being available would be an absolute dream for the Rams. He fills their biggest need and gives them an elite WR for Sam Bradford.
15 Miami Dolphins QB, RB, FS, TE, LG, WR, CB3, Rush LB, OL Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama With Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams probably leaving, RB is a huge need. Ingram is not the BPA but he fills a huge need.
16 Jacksonville Jaguars DE, FS, CB, WR, Weak LB, QB, OL Cameron Jordan, DE, California The Jaguars always take the BPA and I think Jordan fills that role. Jordan is an absolute beast and can make a huge impact rushing the passer for the Jaguars.
17 New England Patriots G, OT, Rush LB, DE, WR, RB Aldon Smith, OLB, Missouri Smith presents incredible value at a big need. He would give the Patriots a great pass rusher off the edge and add versatility to their young defense.
18 San Diego Chargers Rush LB, DE, RT, ILB, WR, FS, CB3, ST J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin Watt is a player with no real weaknesses. He has good athleticism, is very strong, and is good at defending the run and rushing the passer.
19 New York Giants OLB, C, OT, RB, CB, TE, FS, DT Nate Solder, OT, Colorado Solder is a physical specimen but is very raw. He needs to develop his footwork to become a better pass blocker. However, he already excels in run blocking and could be a great player down the line.
20 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2DE, ILB, RT, LG, Strong LB, RB, C, CB Adrian Clayborn, DE, Iowa Clayborn fills the Bucs greatest need. He will give them a versatile DE that can rush the passer and is very good against the run.
21 Kansas City Chiefs Rush LB, WR, NT, QB, LT, RT, C, RB, ILB Ryan Kerrigan, OLB, Purdue The common pick is Phil Taylor but I think Kerrigan is a better overall prospect and fills a bigger need. He will give the Chiefs a fearsome pass rusher off the edge and as he develops he will become a star.
22 Indianapolis Colts LT, RT, DT, RG, WR, SS, RB, QB Anthony Costanzo, OT, Boston College Costanzo is a perfect fit for the Colts blocking scheme. He is a great pass blocker and an adequate run blocker.
23 Philadelphia Eagles RT, RG, 2CB, 2OLB, SS, DE Mike Pouncey, OG, Florida Mike is not as good of prospect as Maurkice was but he is still a great guard prospect that will shore up the Eagles right guard spot.
24 New Orleans Saints DT, OLB, DE, RT, RB, Strong LB, SS Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois Liuget is terrific value here and fills the Saints biggest need. He will get a year to learn behind Shaun Rogers and then replace him.
25 Seattle Seahawks CB, SS, RT, LE, WR1, RG, QB, K Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado Smith is a top 15 talent but character concerns make him available here. However, he is just too talented to fall any further.
26 Baltimore Ravens WR, DE, CB, ILB, RT, RG Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State The Ravens options here are endless. They could go one of many ways but I think all their other needs could be addressed later in the draft much better than a 3-4 DE could be. If they didn't take Heyward they would have to hope Christian Ballard fell to them in round 2.
27 Atlanta Falcons 2WR, LT, 2G, SS, Strong LB, CB3, TE, DE Jonathan Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh Baldwin is an elite talent that has freakish athleticism and will give Matt Ryan a great weapon across from Roddy White.
28 New England Patriots G, OT, DE, WR, RB Muhammed Wilerson, DE, Temple Wilkerson is a great DE prospect that is kind of under the radar. He has great size and strength and will have no trouble playing in a 3-4 system.
29 Chicago Bears LT, LG, DT, C, WR1, Strong LB, RB, DE, P Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State Sherrod is a very good tackle who has no major flaws. He will likely start right away on the Bears terrible OL
30 New York Jets Rush LB, DE, CB, ILB, WR, K Justin Houston, OLB, Georgia Houston has the build of Lamaar Woodely and could become that good. He is a great pass rusher but will need to transition from DE to OLB.
31 Pittsburgh Steelers RG, CB, OT, NT, DE, FS, P Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor Taylor is the only prospect available that really makes sense. He will sit and learn behind Casey Hampton and Chris Hoke for two years but then be ready to replace Hampton and the Steelers D won't miss a beat. Many people think it is silly to have a 1st round draft pick sit for 2 years but Colbert has already done it once with Ziggy Hood.
32 Green Bay Packers Rush LB, LG, DE, RB, OT, WR, K Martez Wilson, OLB, Illinois Wilson has the size and speed to be a great 3-4 OLB. He will have to transition from ILB to OLB but with proper coaching he can become a stud.
33 New England Patriots G, OT, WR, RB Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami Hankerson will give Tom Brady an additional weapon for the Pats already dangerous offense.
34 Buffalo Bills LT, DE, Rush LB, RT, WR, TE, ILB, CB3 Brooks Reed, OLB, Arizona Reed is a great OLB prospect that is flying up draft boards. At pick 34, he is great value and will help improve that Bills defense.
35 Cincinnati Bengals DE, RB, ILB, QB, LG, SS, K, KR Jake Locker, QB, Washington Locker is an incredible athlete that could help soften the blow of Carson Palmer's pending retirement or trade. He will need some time to develop but if he is coached up he can become a stud.
36 Denver Broncos DT, LB, TE, DE, S, RB2, LT, RT, CB3 Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State Paea is an absolute monster and he and Dareus will turn a huge weakness for the Broncos into a strength.
37 Cleveland Browns WR, RT, DE, Weak LB, CB, RG, SS, K Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland Smith is an incredibly fast player that if he improves his route running will be a star.
38 Arizona Cardinals QB, LT, Rush LB, LG, RT, CB, FS Sam Acho, OLB, Texas Acho and Miller will give the Cardinals a fearsome pair of OLB's which will help the defense tremendously.
39 Tennessee Titans QB, LG, ILB, C, Weak LB, SS, DT Christian Ponder, QB, Florida State Ponder is an incredible athlete with great arm strength and accuracy. He does not have a major flaw and is NFL ready.
40 Dallas Cowboys RT, FS, RE, LG, SS, DL, WR Rahim Moore, FS, UCLA Moore is not the best FS prospect I have ever seen but he has no major flaws and should be able to contribute at a very high level in the NFL
41 Washington Redskins QB, WR, Rush LB, ILB, NT, CB, RE, FS, RG, C, FB, K, P Jerrell Jernigan, WR, Troy Jernigan is a play-maker that can have a huge impact on the offense of the redskins. He is a constant homerun threat.
42 Houston Texans NT, Rush LB, FS, SS, CB, WR, P, DL Brandon Harris, CB, Miami Harris falls due to concerns about his size to be a starting CB. I think he has the athleticism to make up for his lack of height and he is a steal here.
43 Minnesota Vikings QB, 2OLB, 2S, TE, CB, RG, WR, LE, K, C, DT Robert Sands, SS, WVU Sands is an absolute ball hawk with great instincts and a great work ethic.
44 Detroit Lions OLB, CB, LT, C, SS, RB Aaron Williams, CB, Texas Williams is great value and fills a big need. He has great size and speed and can shadow a receiver in man coverage.
45 San Francisco 49ers QB, DE, Rush LB, FS, WR, OT Christian Ballard, DE, Iowa Ballard is a very under the radar prospect that could blossom into a superstar.
46 Denver Broncos LB, TE, DE, S, RB2, LT, RT, CB3 Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame Rudolph has great size and a good overall balance of receiving and blocking. He has the work ethic and skill set to be an elite TE.
47 St. Louis Rams RG, DT, Weak LB, SS, TE, RB, CB, DE Benjamin Ijlana, OG, Villanova Ijalana is a great guard with versatility to play tackle.
48 Oakland Raiders CB, RT, LG, C, Strong LB, WR1, TE Curtis Brown, CB, Texas Brown has the physical size to be a future #1 CB in this league and could be the replacement to Namdi Asoumagua(sp?)
49 Jacksonville Jaguars FS, CB, WR, Weak LB, QB, OL Titus Young, WR, Boise State Young is a speed demon but also has decent size and route running. He is the BPA and could become the next Desean Jackson.
50 San Diego Chargers Rush LB, RT, ILB, WR, FS, CB3, ST Greg Jones, ILB, Michigan State Jones has very good size and speed and will be a great fit at ILB for the Chargers.
51 Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE, ILB, RT, LG, Strong LB, RB, C, CB Jason Pinkston, OT, Pittsburgh Pinkston is good for the Bucs because he can play either RT or guard. Both are needs for the Bucs so they take him here
52 New York Giants LB, C, RB, CB, TE, FS, DT Stefen Wisniewski, C, Penn State Stefen is easily the BPA and fills a huge need for the Giants.
53 Indianapolis Colts RT, DT, RG, WR, SS, RB, QB Drake Nevis, DT, LSU Nevis is a hard worker who possesses great strength and a great set of moves to get after the QB. He should fit into the Colts system as well.
54 Philadelphia Egales RT, 2CB, 2OLB, SS, DE Mason Foster, OLB, Washington Foster is a perfect fit for the Eagles 4-3 defense and should give a boost to their weak OLB group.
55 Kansas City Chiefs WR, NT, QB, LT, RT, C, RB, ILB Tandon Doss, WR, Indiana Doss is an incredible weapon to have in your offense. He can do it all and gives the Chiefs a real 2nd WR to help Dwayne Bowe.
56 New Orleans Saints OLB, DE, RT, RB, Strong LB, SS Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois Leshoure will give the Saints a true #1 RB to combine with Reggie Bush and Ivory.
57 Seattle Seahawks SS, RT, LE, WR1, RG, QB, K Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky Cobb has the skill set to be a superstar in this league. He can play WR, RB, and KR as well. He will give the Seahawks an incredible weapon to add to their offense.
58 Baltimore Ravens WR, CB, ILB, RT, RG Quan Sturdivant, ILB, UNC Sturdivant will give the Ravens a player to groom to eventually replace Ray Lewis.
59 Atlanta Falcons WR, LT, 2G, SS, Strong LB, CB3, TE, DE Rodney Hudson, OG, Florida State Hudson is a very talented player that just needs to put on 15 pounds to become a star.
60 New England Patriots G, OT, RB Marcus Cannon, OG, TCU Cannon is incredible value and fills the Pats biggest remaining need.
61 San Diego Chargers Rush LB, RT, WR, FS, CB3, ST Jabaal Sheard, OLB, Pittsburgh Sheard is a player I think will rise on draft day. He is a great athlete that knows how to produce. He fits in well in the Chargers defense.
62 Chicago Bears LG, DT, C, WR1, Strong LB, RB, DE, P Marvin Austin, DT, UNC Austin is an ideal fit for the Bears system and is great va;ue here. He is a 1st round talent that falls due to injuries and work ethic.
63 Pittsburgh Steelers RG, CB, OT, DE, FS, P Ras I Dowling, CB, Virginia Dowling is a 1st round talent that is only available because of a nagging injury. He has pro-bowl potential and will make Pittsburgh's defense the best in the league again.
64 Green Bay Packers LG, DE, RB, OT, WR, K Danny Watkins, OG, Baylor Watkins is a great talent but his age makes him available here. Since the Packers are built to win now, they cam take him here despite being 27 years old.
65 Carolina Panthers 2DT, WR1, RG, RDE, TE, CB Jurrell Casey, DT, USC A good scheme fit that will help improve the Panthers run defense.
66 Cincinnati Bengals DE, RB, ILB, LG, SS, K, KR Allen Bailey, DE, Miami Bailey is a player that can be a solid starter for the Bengals for a long time. He is very athletic but needs to use that athleticism to his advantage.
67 Denver Broncos LB, DE, S, RB2, LT, RT, CB3 Quinton Carter, FS, Oklahoma Carter has no major weakness but no incredible strengths. He has the potential to be a very good safety for the Broncos.
68 Buffalo Bills LT, DE, RT, WR, TE, ILB, CB3 Marcus Gilbert, OT, Florida Gilbert can play either tackle position but is probably suited more as a LT. He is already used to blocking for a mobile QB so blocking for Newton won't be a problem.
69 Arizona Cardinals QB, LT, LG, RT, CB, FS Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada Kaepernick has great athleticism and good arm strength and should be a solid starer for the Cardinals.
70 Cleveland Browns RT, DE, Weak LB, CB, RG, SS, K Pernell McPhee, DE, Mississippi State McPhee is a proto-typical 4-3 DE that should help the Browns transition to their 4-3.
71 Dallas Cowboys RT, RE, LG, SS, DL, WR Jarvis Jenkins, DE, Clemson Jenkins can play 3-4 DE but will need to transition from a 4-3 defense at Clemson. He has the tools to be a very good contributor, maybe even an eventual pro-bowler.
72 New Orleans Saints OLB, DE, RT, Strong LB, SS Bruce Carter, OLB, UNC Carter fits into a 4-3 defense and should help improve the Saints front 7.
73 Houston Texans NT, Rush LB, FS, SS, WR, P, DL Jerrell Powe, NT, Ole Miss Powe has the potential to dominate in the NFL however he under-whelmed at Ole Miss. He is a hit or miss prospect.
74 New England Patriots OT, RB Jordan Todman, RB, UCONN Todman is the BPA and gives the Patriots a true #1 RB.
75 Detroit Lions OLB, LT, C, SS, RB Jake Kirkpatrick, C, Nevada Kirkpatrick is the BPA and fills a big need at C. He has the potential to start in this league for a decade or more.
76 San Francisco 49ers QB, Rush LB, FS, WR, OT Ryan Mallet, QB, Arkansas Mallet has all the attributes to be a great QB except for the mental aspect. Worth the risk at this point in the 3rd round.
77 Tennessee Titans LG, ILB, C, Weak LB, SS, DT Nate Irving, ILB, N.C. State Irving is one of my favorite players in the draft. He is athletic, big, and smart. Great value here and a potential pro-bowler.
78 St. Louis Rams DT, Weak LB, SS, TE, RB, CB, DE Lawrence Wilson, OLB, UCONN Wilson is very athletic and very strong and should be a solid starter in the NFL.
79 Miami Dolphins QB, FS, TE, LG, WR, CB3, Rush LB, OL Andy Dalton, QB, TCU Dalton is extremely accurate and has a pretty strong arm. He has no major flaws and should become a very good QB on the level of a Joe Flacco.
80 Jacksonville Jaguars FS, CB, Weak LB, QB, OL Brandon Burton, CB, Utah Burton is a big, physical CB and is the BPA. He has the potential to be a #1 CB and possibly become a pro-bowler.
81 Oakland Raiders RT, LG, C, Strong LB, WR1, TE Tim Barnes, C, Missouri Barnes has no major weaknesses and is above average at just about anything. He should be an above average center for the Raiders.
82 San Diego Chargers RT, WR, FS, CB3, ST Austin Pettis, WR, Boise State Pettis has a great combination of size and speed and is very under-rated. He should be a very good #2 WR and maybe even a #1.
83 New York Giants LB, RB, CB, TE, FS, DT Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech Williams is the BPA and could give the Giants a 1-2-3 punch at RB or they could let one of their two RB's walk away if they can't afford either of them.
84 Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE, ILB, LG, Strong LB, RB, C, CB John Moffit, OG, Wisconsin Moffit has great size and is incredibly smart. He can definitely be a good starter and maye even become a pro-bowler.
85 Philadelphia Eagles RT, 2CB, OLB, SS, DE Rashad Carmichael, CB, Virgina Tech Carmichael might never become a #1 CB but he can be a solid #2 or nickel corner. He should help improve the Eagles secondary, which only has one quality CB.
86 Kansas City Chiefs NT, QB, LT, RT, C, RB, ILB Kendrick Ellis, NT, Hampton Ellis has the size and speed to be dominating NT in the NFL. He has some small character concerns but he seems to have matured in the last year.
87 Indianapolis Colts RT, RG, WR, SS, RB, QB DeAndre McDaniel, SS, Clemson McDaniel is the BPA and could be the replacement to Bob Sanders.
88 New Orleans Saints DE, RT, Strong LB, SS K.J. Wright, OLB, Mississippi State Wright should be a main-stay in the Saints defense for a decade or so. He doesn't have star potential but could make a pro-bowl or two in his career.
89 San Diego Chargers RT, FS, CB3, ST Deunta Williams, FS, UNC Williams is very athletic and makes a ton of plays. He could has a good chance to be come a top 10 safety in this league.
90 Baltimore Ravens WR, CB, RT, RG Edmund Gates, WR, Abilene Christian Gates is incredibly fast and should give the Ravens a true deep threat to spread the field.
91 Atlanta Falcons WR, LT, G, SS, Strong LB, CB3, TE, DE Tyler Sash, SS, Iowa Sash is a ball hawk and a huge hitter and could become a top 5 safety. With his work ethic, nothing would surprise me.
92 New England Patriots OT Sione Fua, NT, Stanford NT is not a need for the Patriots but Fua is the BPA and could give them a dynamic bull rush prospect if he lines up at DE or he could help in goal line defense.
93 Chicago Bears LG, C, WR1, Strong LB, RB, DE, P Terrance Tolliver, WR, LSU Tolliver has the size and speed to become a very good WR in this league. He needs to improve on route running to really become a dominate player.
94 New York Jets DE, CB, ILB, WR, K Lawrence Guy, DE, Arizona State Guy is a dynamic 3-4 DE that could really provide a pass rush for the Jets from the DE spot.
95 Pittsburgh Steelers RG, OT, DE, FS, P Orlando Franklin, OG, Miami Franklin has the potential to start right away at RG for the Steelers. He will be a very solid guard in the league and could make a couple pro-bowls behind Sean Kugler's coaching.
96 Green Bay Packers DE, RB, OT, WR, K Ronald Johnson, WR, USC Johnson has a very good combo of size and speed and could become a very solid WR. Needs to improve on his hands and route running.
97 Carolina Panthers DT, WR1, RG, RDE, TE, CB Clint Boling, OG, Georgia Boling should be a very solid, very steady guard for the Panthers. Probably never a pro-bowler but he is a hard worker and a good player in the locker room to go along with his good skill set.
98 Carolina Panthers DT, WR1, RDE, TE, CB Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin Kendricks will give the Panthers their first talented TE since John Fox was hired.
99 Seattle Seahawks SS, RT, LE, RG, QB, K Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU Barksdale is an ideal fit as an NFL RT and if he improves his footwork he will be very solid.
100 Buffalo Bills DE, RT, WR, TE, ILB, CB3 Cedric Thorton, DE, Southern Arkansas Thorton has the ideal size to be a 3-4 DE or move inside on a 4-3.
101 Cincinnati Bengals RB, ILB, LG, SS, K, KR Casey Matthews, ILB, Oregon This is good value for Matthews, who should be a very solid piece in the Bengals 4-3 Defense.
102 Cleveland Browns RT, Weak LB, CB, RG, SS, K Johnny Patrick, CB, Louisville Patrick should team with Joe Haden to form a very good CB tandem for the Browns.
103 Arizona Cardinals LT, LG, RT, CB, FS Chris Hairston, OT, Clemson Hairston should be a average to possibly above average LT in the NFL. He could also play RT if he doesn't pan out at LT.
104 Philadelphia Eagles RT, CB, OLB, SS, DE Kendrick Burney, CB, UNC Burney is good value here and should be a very solid nickel corner.
105 Houston Texans Rush LB, FS, SS, WR, P, DL Dontay Moch, OLB, Nevada Moch will give the Texans another great pass rusher to complete their front 7 overhaul as they transition to a 3-4.
106 Minnesota Vikings QB, 2OLB, S, TE, CB, RG, WR, LE, K, C, DT Luke Stocker, TE, Tennessee Stocker is a great prospect that could become a star.
107 Detroit Lions OLB, LT, SS, RB Shane Vereen, RB, California Vereen will be a great "thunder" to Jhavid Bests' "lightning".
108 San Francisco 49ers Rush LB, FS, WR, OT Jeremy Beal, OLB, Oklahoma Beal has to transition from DE to OLB but he should be able to do that if coached properly.
109 Tennessee Titans LG, C, Weak LB, SS, DT Kristofer O'Dowd, C, USC O'Dowd should be a very solid center for the Titans.
110 Dallas Cowboys RT, LG, SS, DL, WR Lee Ziemba, OG, Auburn Ziembh is above average in every aspect of the game and could start right away.
111 Miami Dolphins FS, TE, LG, WR, CB3, Rush LB, OL D.J. Williams, TE, Arkansas Williams is the exact type of TE the Dolphins need. He is athletic and a great pass catcher.
112 St. Louis Rams DT, SS, TE, RB, CB, DE Jeron Johnson, SS, Boise State With no DT's worth the pick, the Rams find a starting SS that could become a very, very good player.
113 Oakland Raiders RT, LG, Strong LB, WR1, TE DeMarcus Love, OG, Arkansas Love has great size for a guard and should be a big boost for the Raiders OL.
114 Jacksonville Jaguars FS, Weak LB, QB, OL Delone Carter, RB, Syracuse Carter is the BPA and would give the Jaguars one of the best tandems in the league.
115 San Francisco 49ers FS, WR, OT Greg Little, WR, UNC Little is a 2nd round talent that is available due to character concerns. He should give the 49ers a great weapon across from Crabtree.
116 Tampa Bay Buccaneers DE, ILB, Strong LB, RB, C, CB Greg Romeus, DE, Pittsburgh Romeus is a good fit in a 4-3 D and could start right away.
117 New York Giants LB, CB, TE, FS, DT Jaiquawn Jarret, FS, Temple Jarret has the potential to become a very good starting FS. Good value.
118 Kansas City Chiefs QB, LT, RT, C, RB, ILB James Carpenter, OT, Alabama Carpenter can be a RT or a LT and will provide solid depth in his rookie year. I think he could start in year 2.
119 Indianapolis Colts RT, RG, WR, RB, QB Will Rackley, OG, Leigh Rackley is the best OL available and could compete for the starting job at RG.
120 Philadelphia Eagles RT, OLB, SS, DE DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma Murray could team with McCoy to give the Eagles an incredible back-field.
121 Jacksonville Jaguars FS, Weak LB, QB, OL Pat Devlin, QB, Delaware Devlin, if groomed properly, could become a very good QB.
122 Buffalo Bills RT, WR, TE, ILB, CB3 Niles Paul, WR, Nebraska Paul has all the intangibles and should contribute right away for the Browns.
123 Baltimore Ravens CB, RT, RG James Brewer, OT, Indiana Brewer is a perfect fit at RT. He needs a year to develop but with the Ravens good coaching, he should become a very good RT.
124 Atlanta Falcons WR, LT, G, Strong LB, CB3, TE, DE Greg Salas, WR, Hawaii Salas just needs to improve on his route running to become a very good WR.
125 New England Patriots OT Derek Newton, OT, Arkansas State Newton has huge upside and I am positive that Beli-cheat could turn him into a very good tackle.
126 New York Jets CB, ILB, WR, K DeMarcus Van Dyke, CB, Miami Van Dyke is not very big, but he is great in man press coverage so he will fit into the Jets scheme.
127 Chicago Bears LG, C, Strong LB, RB, DE, P Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State No OLB's or OL worth the pick. Thomas will give them a great compliment to Matt Forte.
128 Pittsburgh Steelers OT, DE, FS, P Jah Reid, OT, Central Florida Reid can be a very good RT in the NFL. He could play RT and allow Willie Colon (if resigned) to move back to RG.
129 Green Bay Packers DE, RB, OT, K Derrick Locke, RB, Kentucky Locke has the potential to be a game changer even with 5 touches. He can catch passes, return kicks, and run a couple times a game.
130 Tennessee Titans LG, Weak LB, SS, DT Steve Schilling, OG, Michigan Schilling needs to add some size and develop his body a little bit, but he is very advanced as far as footwork.
131 Green Bay Packers DE, OT, K Jarriel King, OT, South Carolina King can be solid depth at OT and eventually he could become a solid starter.
132 Carolina Panthers DT, WR1, RDE, CB Terrell McClain, DT, South Florida McClain is a good fit in the Panthers 4-3 Defense and should compete for a starting spot.
133 Buffalo Bills RT, TE, ILB, CB3 Rob Housler, TE, Florida Atlantic Housler will give the Bills an athletic TE that can catch passes. Needs to improve his blocking.
134 Cincinnati Bengals RB, LG, SS, K, KR Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma State Hunter is a very speedy back that could give the Bengals a great tandem.
135 Kansas City Chiefs QB, RT, C, RB, ILB Alex Linnenkohl, C, Oregon State Linnenkohl should become a starting Center at some point.
136 Arizona Cardinals LG, RT, CB, FS Shareece Wright, CB, USC Wright should contribute as a nickel corner and maybe eventually be a #2 CB.
137 Cleveland Browns RT, Weak LB, RG, SS, K Derek Hall, OT, Stanford Hall should provide solid depth for the Browns OL and might eventually become a starter.
138 Houston Texans FS, SS, WR, P, DL Eric Hagg, FS, Nebraska Hagg has the potential to be a solid FS in the NFL and should help the Texans really bad secondary.
139 Minnesota Vikings QB, 2OLB, S, CB, RG, WR, LE, K, C, DT Ross Homan, OLB, Ohio State Homan is good value and could provide depth at OLB. He should become a solid starter as he develops.
140 Kansas City Chiefs QB, RT, RB, ILB Kyle Hix, OT, Texas Hix should be a solid RT in the NFL. He could be depth for the Chiefs young but improving OT spot
141 San Francisco 49ers FS, OT Chris L. Rucker, FS, Michigan State Rucker could eventually become a starter at FS and at worst is a backup and a special teams player.
142 Tennessee Titans Weak LB, SS, DT Ahmad Black, SS, Florida Black is a big hitter and an instinctive player that will have to overcome a lack of speed.
143 Dallas Cowboys RT, SS, DL, WR Adam Grant, OT, Arizona Grant has good size but needs to improve his footwork. Solid value.
