Draft Matters

I know, I know, another post about the draft. But hey, in a week it'll be over.

I'm not trying to take away from the Big Board, which is a great idea and I love that we're doing it. Still, I thought I'd post a board of my own. There are some differences; for example, I have Taylor Mays and Jason Pierre-Paul lower than the official Big Board does, and Dan Williams significantly higher. I changed a few things from the way I voted on the Big Board; for example, I moved Haden down to 11 since we got Sheldon Brown. I'm only going from 1-38 with this board, and most of these are just based on gut feeling; I don't know a lot of these guys very well, so you don't have to put a lot of stock in my opinion. Anyway I thought I'd post mine, and you can post yours if you like.

So here it is:

1. Suh

2. Berry

3. Bradford

4. G. McCoy

5. McClain

6. D. Williams

7. Thomas

8. Iupati

9. Clausen

10. Morgan

11. Haden

12. Graham

13. Okung

14. Kindle

15. Wilson

16. Bryant

17. T. Williams

18. Odrick

19. Weatherspoon

20. Bulaga

21. McCourty

22. Pierre-Paul

23. Price

24. Mays

25. Davis

26. Spiller

27. Allen

28. Hughes

29. Griffen

30. Tate

31. Pouncey

32. Robinson

33. Alualu

34. Asamoah

35. Gilyard

36. C. McCoy

37. Jackson

38. Lee



Here's the mock draft I submitted for Gahnki's contest. I thought, since there is not supposed to be discussion in that thread, you can discuss my mock and yours here, if you like.

   1. St. Louis- Sam Bradford, QB
   2. Detroit- Ndamakong Suh, DT
   3. Tampa Bay- Gerald McCoy, DT
   4. Washington- Russell Okung, LT
   5. Kansas City- Eric Berry, S
   6. Seattle- Trent Williams, OT
   7. Cleveland- Rolando McClain, ILB
   8. Oakland- Earl Thomas, S
   9. Buffalo- Bryan Bulaga, OT
  10. Jacksonville- Derrick Morgan, DE
  11. Denver- Maurkice Pouncey, C
  12. Miami- Dez Bryant, WR
  13. San Francisco- Anthony Davis, OT
  14. Seattle – from Denver- Jimmy Clausen, QB
  15. New York Giants- Dan Williams, DT
  16. Tennessee- Joe Haden, CB
  17. San Francisco- C. J. Spiller, RB
  18. Pittsburgh- Devin McCourty, CB
  19. Atlanta- Jason Pierre-Paul, DE
  20. Houston- Kyle Wilson, CB
  21. Cincinnati- Taylor Mays, S
  22. New England- Brandon Graham, DE/OLB
  23. Green Bay- Charles Brown, OT
  24. Philadelphia- Mike Iupati, OG
  25. Baltimore- Jermaine Gresham, TE
  26. Arizona- Sean Weatherspoon, LB
  27. Dallas- Golden Tate, WR
  28. San Diego- Ryan Matthews, RB
  29. New York Jets- Sergio Kindle, OLB
  30. Minnesota- Jared Odrick, DT
  31. Indianapolis- Brian Price, DT
  32. New Orleans- Everson Griffen, DE

Looking over it now, I think Odrick and Kindle might be too low. And the main reason I gave McCourty instead of Wilson to the Steelers was that the previous two mocks had given Wilson to the Steelers, and I didn't want to be a parrot. Also, Bryant-to-the-Dolphins is obsolete after the Brandon Marshall trade.

Mocking the Draft is having a mock draft contest of its own. I submitted this same mock over there, although I've since edited it to switch the Patriots and Dolphins picks. Be sure to get yours in; anyone can join, but they need 50 entries to make it "live."
