Oakland Raiders: Antonio Johnson, DT, Mississippi State
The Raiders have no depth at defensive tackle.
Detroit Lions: Yamon Figurs, WR, Kansas State
Assuming they trade the right to pick Calvin Johnson, Mike Martz would like to add another quick receiver. Yamon Figurs ran a 4.30 at the Combine.
Cleveland Browns: Rhema McKnight, WR, Notre Dame
Cleveland barely has anyone behind Braylon Edwards and Joe Jurevicius.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nate Harris, OLB, Louisville
A quick linebacker for the Tampa-2.
Arizona Cardinals: Anthony Pudewell, TE, Nevada
Will play the role of Jerame Tuman in Ken Whisenhunt's offense.
Washington Redskins: Jay Moore, DE, Nebraska
The Redskins haven't drafted in a while. How are they going to take care of all their needs?
Houston Texans: Dallas Baker, WR, Florida
Houston's No. 2 receiver is Kevin Walter. Yeesh.
Detroit Lions: Michael Allan, TE, Whitworth
The Lions lack a big-time tight end, and after his great Combine, Michael Allan is a steal at this juncture.
Minnesota Vikings: Jay Alford, DT, Penn State
Minnesota's only depth behind Kevin Williams and Pat Williams is a guy named Spencer Johnson.
San Francisco 49ers: Anthony Arline, CB, Baylor
Extensive secondary depth is a must in the receiver-friendly NFC West.
Kansas City Chiefs: Brandon Jackson, RB, Nebraska
The Chiefs have told everyone they're drafting a running back early, so they probably won't take one until Round 5.
Atlanta Falcons: Kolby Smith, RB, Louisville
A Bobby Petrino recruit and a short-yardage back.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Toby Korrodi, QB, Central Missouri
A young quarterback to compete with Byron Leftwich and David Garrard.
Cincinnati Bengals: Marcus Thomas, DT, Florida
Just in case Chris Henry gets arrested. Again.
Tennessee Titans: Andy Alleman, G, Akron
The Titans lost Zach Piller, so they now have depth issues at the guard position.
New York Giants: Dallas Sartz, OLB, USC
One of many needs the Giants have this offseason.
Detroit Lions: Daren Stone, SS, Maine
The loss of Terrence Holt creates depth issues.
Carolina Panthers: Roy Hall, WR, Ohio State
Another much-needed weapon for Jake Delhomme and David Carr.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Kasey Studdard, G, Texas
Even after signing Sean Mahan, the Steelers need depth on their interior line.
Green Bay Packers: Earl Everett, OLB, Florida
The Packers desperately need better talent backing up A.J. Hawk and Brady Poppinga.
Detroit Lions: Jason Snelling, FB, Virginia
Cory Schlesinger's gone. The Lions have about five million fourth-round picks, so they can take a fullback.
Dallas Cowboys: Melvin Bullitt, SS, Texas A&M
The Cowboys signed Ken Hamlin, but they still have zero depth behind Roy Williams.
Kansas City Chiefs: Ryne Robinson, WR/KR, Miami of Ohio
A return specialist to take Dante Hall's spot.
Seattle Seahawks: Cameron Stephenson, G, Rutgers
The guard position isn't a top priority now that Chris Gray has been re-signed, but the Seahawks still need depth there.
Philadelphia Eagles: Dwayne Wright, RB, Fresno State
The Eagles need a big back. Dwayne Wright (230 pounds) rushed for 1,462 yards last year.
New Orleans Saints: Tony Taylor, OLB, Georgia
The Saints fixed the middle linebacker position by signing Brian Simmons. Now they have to improve the outside.
New York Jets: Uche Nwaneri, G, Purdue
Left guard Pete Kendall turns 34 in July, while right guard Brandon Moore isn't exactly the best lineman in the world.
Oakland Raiders: Carl Berman, WR, Indiana State
Another receiver for the team that needs a billion.
Baltimore Ravens: Gerald Alexander, FS, Boise State
Baltimore currently has zero depth at the safety position.
San Diego Chargers: Justin Warren, ILB, Texas A&M
More linebacking help for a team that lost three interior players at that position this offseason.
Chicago Bears: Clint Session, OLB, Pittsburgh
I thought the Bears needed linebacking depth even before the whole Lance Briggs fiasco.
Indianapolis Colts: Joel Filani, WR, Texas Tech
More depth at receiver is definitely needed.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Daniel Sepulevda, P, Baylor
Although he�s been a reliable punter for years, Chris Gardocki showed his age (37) last year. The Steelers need a new punter.
New England Patriots: Darius Walker, RB, Notre Dame
Call me crazy, but I don't think Sammy Morris is a long-term backup for Laurence Maroney.
San Diego Chargers: Tala Esera, G, Hawaii
The Chargers have only three guards on the roster.
Indianapolis Colts: Troy Smith, QB, Ohio State
Will serve as a decent understudy, assuming Jim Sorgi will take a starting gig somewhere else next year. I think Troy Smith may slip this far on Draft Day.
Baltimore Ravens: Eric Frampton, SS, Washington State
As I said before, Baltimore lacks reserves at safety. They literally have no one behind Ed Reed and Dawan Landry on the depth chart.
@jsemmens I've been to the Big Board in the past, but it's still an inefficient way of going about a mock. Not to mention, reports and the people writing them change, no? I come to Walt's site because I used to like his insight on every player. Now, it's simply team needs and a very limited amount of actual analysis. You definitely need SOME amount of explanation behind a pick with regards to team need, but you need much more of the player evaluation angle. Any dummy can write why a particular team "needs" a specific position; it takes a pretty good eye to understand what player needs to fill it. Again, just my 2 cents.
@dawg66 I see where you're coming from. I really do. But I'm sure as a Browns fan you can understand, they have needs EVERYWHERE. You aren't gonna win a super bowl unless you have a QB. Case in point pretty much every super bowl winning quarterback ever. Second, yes you have Terrelle Pryor and Corey Coleman. Terrelle Pryor is a slot receiver which is gonna get you nowhere unless you play for New England. Corey Coleman has yet to prove a damn thing. Mike Williams, however, just took down Alabama pretty much BY HIMSELF. It's the right range for him and I'm positive Huge Jackson wouldn't pass over him at this point, meaning pre-combine and interviews.
Here's my mock based on team need, prospect value and prevailing opinion as well as some ideas of my own. Please let me know about the team(s) that you follow more closely, and any picks that you agree or disagree with. Please comment, and feel free to rate.
