    new mock draft

    i found this on espn.com
    they have us taking laurence maroney when deangalo is still there. i sure hope we snag williams if hes there.




    MOCK DRAFT: Round 1
    Pick Team Player Pos. School
    1. Texans Reggie Bush RB Southern California
    Forget the trade rumors; people lose jobs over passing on the next Barry Sanders.
    2. Saints Matt Leinart QB Southern California
    Not as much upside as other top QBs, but struggling franchise needs stability.
    3. Titans Vince Young QB Texas
    In Steve McNair and offensive coordinator Norm Chow, Young would have the mentors to be successful.
    4. Jets D'Brickashaw Ferguson OT Virginia
    Without a stronger line, offense will continue to struggle regardless of the quarterback.
    5. Packers Mario Williams DE North Carolina State
    Williams impressed at the Combine and is emerging as the top defensive talent in the draft.
    6. 49ers Vernon Davis TE Maryland
    Linebacker and defensive back are bigger needs, but Davis is skyrocketing and Alex Smith needs weapons.
    7. Raiders A.J. Hawk OLB Ohio State
    Long blond hair and an incredible nose for the football. Has Al Davis written all over him — and fills a big need.
    8. Bills Haloti Ngata DT Oregon
    The Bills have to address the defensive tackle position, and Ngata could be a dominator in the mold of Sam Adams.
    9. Lions Jay Cutler QB Vanderbilt
    Joey Harrington has received support from new coaching staff, but Cutler is a potential franchise QB with a huge arm.
    10. Cardinals Brodrick Bunkley DT Florida State
    Darnell Dockett's sophomore slump could turn into a third-year thrill with help from his former Seminoles teammate.
    11. Rams Michael Huff DB Texas
    The top defensive back in the draft falls into the lap of the team which arguably needs him the most.
    12. Browns
    Chad Greenway OLB Iowa
    Not necessarily the prototype 3-4 outside linebacker, but Greenway's size, production and versatility is attractive.
    13. Ravens LenDale White RB Southern California
    Ravens can't win without a running game, and Jamal Lewis and Chester Taylor are free agents.
    14. Eagles Santonio Holmes WR Ohio State
    The Eagles need to continue to add to their receiving corps and Holmes is the draft's top wideout.
    15. Falcons Jimmy Williams CB Virginia Tech
    The last Hokies cornerback selected by Atlanta was DeAngelo Hall. Can Williams be just as effective?
    16. Dolphins Winston Justice OT Southern California
    Damion McIntosh is a serviceable left tackle, but Justice would be a huge upgrade athletically.
    17. Vikings Laurence Maroney RB Minnesota
    Maroney remaining in-state is a nice public relations move — oh, and a big lift to the running game.
    18. Cowboys Kamerion Wimbley OLB Florida State
    The Cowboys could add Wimbley, arguably the draft's top 3-4 rush linebacker, to play opposite DeMarcus Ware.
    19. Chargers Tye Hill CB Clemson
    The Chargers' front seven is too good to continue to be burned by an awful secondary.
    20. Chiefs
    (from Bills) Ashton Youboty CB Ohio State
    The Chiefs defense improved last year, but too often relied on veterans on the downside of their careers.
    21. Patriots DeAngelo Williams RB Memphis
    Williams' strength is his versatility, something the Patriots admire in a backup — or future replacement for Corey Dillon.
    22. Broncos
    (from Redskins) Tamba Hali DE Penn State
    Unless the Browns plan to unload more defensive linemen this year, the Broncos would be wise to add through the draft.
    23. Buccaneers Ernie Sims OLB Florida State
    Often compared to former Seminole Derrick Brooks, he could be drafted to replace him.
    24. Bengals Kelly Jennings CB Miami
    A bit slight for some schemes, Jennings is nonetheless one of the draft's top cover corners.
    25. Giants Eric Winston OT Miami
    Winston proved he's regaining his athleticism with a strong Combine, and would give the Giants options.
    26. Bears Marcedes Lewis TE UCLA
    A bit of a reach at this point, but Lewis is a great target in the middle, something the Bears haven't had for years.
    27. Panthers Nick Mangold C Ohio State
    Veteran Jeff Mitchell is a free agent, and Carolina will consider a rare center deserving of a first-round grade.
    28. Jaguars Jonathan Joseph CB South Carolina
    The Jags need better play opposite Rashean Mathis, and Joseph is steadily moving up the charts.
    29. Broncos Chad Jackson WR Florida
    With two first-round picks, the Broncos can afford to take a gamble on Jackson, whose Combine workout has him soaring up the charts.
    30. Colts Joseph Addai RB LSU
    With the increasingly likely loss of Edgerrin James to free agency, an all-around back makes a lot of sense.
    31. Seahawks DeMeco Ryans OLB Alabama
    Seattle can't rely on either Jamie Sharper or D.D. Lewis. Ryans has the range and heart to fit in here.
    32. Steelers Sinorice Moss WR Miami
    With the expected loss of Antwan Randle El to free agency, look for the Steelers to add speed at wideout.

    Once again, I don't know why we would pass up on Deangelo for Maroney.

    Re: new mock draft

    I heard on the NFL Network that the Saints really like Cutler, and may select him. If that were to happen, the draft is going to change dramaticlly!
    IMO, the Vikings can't go wrong with either Maroney or Williams. Both have great potential and can be good pro's.

    Thanks to PPE for sig

    Re: new mock draft

    The only thing about Deangelo is he is very simular to MeMo. In style and size. I'm not saying hes not good, but IDK what kinda of back Childress wants. Does he want someone bigger to counter MeMos size and speed? Who knows. I'd personally like to have Deangelo behind our line next year.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    Re: new mock draft

    I would take Deangelo over Maroney!!! But i don't see Greenbay taking a DE, i think they might go after a LB or trade down to get a receiver with a later pick since they had so many problems last year at WR!!!
