LITP's 1st Round Mock(ed) Draft
 
1. Oakland - Calvin Johnson(WR) - I think the Raiders fail to resist the temptation of selecting the biggest sure thing since....the last one.

2. Detriot - Brady Quinn(QB) - Quinn gets a year under the expert tutelage of Kitna.

3. Cleveland - JaMarcus Russell(QB) - Big armed Russell ends up in the AFCN

4. Tampa Bay - Gaines Adams(DE) - No CJ for Tampa - pass rush gets upgrade.

5. Arizona - Joe Thomas(OT) - Cards pass on Peterson and give the Edge some help.

6. Washington - LaRon Landry(S) - Redskins go with one of the safer(ty) picks in this years 1st round.

7. Minnesota - Amobi Okoye(DE) - No Tomlin - change of empasis on D-line - Vikes pick up an athlete to compete with the run stopping Williams blobs.

8. Atlanta - Adrian Peterson(RB) - Warwick's Done in Atlanta - this confirms it.

9. Miami - Chris Houston(CB) - Miami get younger on an ageing yet impressive D.

10. Houston - Levi Brown (OT) - Schaub gets the the sort of total protection you might expect in a happy meal.

11. San Francisco - Patrick Willis (ILB) - The best LBer in this years draft helps shore up a weak run D.

12. Buffalo - Alan Branch (DT) - Buffalo upgrades the D-line

13. St Louis - Adam Carriker (DE) - Rams nab Pittsburghs intended target.

14. Carolina - Ted Ginn Jr (WR) - Now Carolina have a WR to take the pressure off one-man-offense Steve Smith

15. Pittsburgh - Jarvis Moss (OLB) - Pass rush is the missing link in Steelerville - say hello to the next Joey Porter.

16. Green Bay - Marshawn Lynch(RB) - One of the safer predictions to make this year - Packers go RB.

17. Jacksonville - Jamaal Anderson(DE) - Must...pressure...Manning.

18. Cincinatti - Darrell Revis (CB) - A nice faller for Cincy. (okay I forgot to put him in earlier)

19. Tennesee - Greg Olsen(TE) - Vince gets his safety valve.

20. Giants - Laurence Timmons (OLB) - Woeful NY LBer corps gets..you guessed it...an upgrade.

21. Denver - Robert Meachem(WR) - - Denver are looking excellent on D so address the offensive side of the ball - another young QB gets first round target.

22. Dallas - Michael Griffin(S) - Second best safety on the board drops to the Cowboys.

23. Kansas City - Aaron Ross(CB) - Ageing DB's get a shot of ...ummm..youth. Starting to regret doing comments now. Ho hum.

24. New England - Jon Beason(ILB) - Patriots snag the prototypical ILB they wanted all along (in a mock draft designed by a Patriots fan!)

25. Jets - Paul Pozluzny (OLB) - Upgrade etc etc

26. Philadelphia - Reggie Nelson (S) - Philly always value quality DBers - they get one here.

27. New Orleans - David Harris (ILB) - Terrible Saints run D gets a shot ....in the arm.

28. New England - Joe Staley(OT) - I think the Patriots are set on the O-line - the Patriots draft for value instead of need.

29. Baltimore - Dwayne Bowe(WR) - Drafting D comes naturally to the Ravens, Drafting O ...doesn't. They have a go anyway.

30. San Diego - Dwayne Jarrett(WR) - Chargers FO see through the combine 'fog' and draft a WR who is capable of catching the ball and not dropping it - will lack company in San Diego.

31. Chicago Bears - Brandon Merriweather(S) - Talent overruling character concerns? Its the NFC - any short coming will only be exposed in the SB or against halfway decent AFC opposition.

32. Indianapolis - Justin Harrell(DT) - Some bulk for a lightweight IColts defense.

Good stuff Pats. But you left out one thing,.......you don't have us trading up with Houston or Miami so as to beat the niners to Patrick Willis !:thumbsup: (Seeing as how both brown and Chris Houston will both still be on the board at 15)

Thanks - trades...way too much of a headache to try and work out all the different variations.

I think Adam Carriker would be a good trade up for the Steelers.

80% of people 'in-the-know' apparently have Russell going to Oakland - thats why I went with CJ.

LOL- Now that's sound logic. As true wisdom,...is knowing,...that ultimately, you "know" nothing. (Huh ?,...:sofunny: )
I'm thinking that the Raiders will take Calvin. (which IMO is the first of a several moves that will shake up the top end of the 1st)
Of course i will 'stick' by my earlier predictions in other threads. (If ya gotta go,...go on your shield) LOL
But for the sake of fluidity and the lack of actual 1st round quality players of this Draft Class, I believe there will be a 'mad scramble' for the true blue chippers. (with a lot of other teams trying to trade down)
