    PPE's Mock Draft, Version 2.

    [size=24px]2006 NFL Mock Draft V. 2 mid FA post combine[/size]

    1. Houston Texans- Reggie Bush, RB, USC
    The Texans need offensive line, but can attempt to cover that during free agency and the rest of the draft. With so many holes to fill the select the best available player in Reggie Bush.
    Thoughts- This is the best pick for the Texans in this situation. If they can add more to the offensive line in free agency, they will again be a force in the NFL.

    2. New Orleans Saints- D’Brickishaw Ferguson, OT, Virginia
    The saints got the biggest QB in free agency by picking up former san diego charger Drew Brees. The Sainte attempt to trade down but didn’t find enough value for the pick. That being said they pick the best player available, D’Brickishaw Ferguson. After losing perennial pro-bowler Lecharles Bentley the saints must upgrade their offensive line once more.
    Thoughts- Another good pick for the Saints. A possibility is a trade-down but there is low interest considering the asking price.

    3. Tennessee Titans- Matt Leinart, QB, USC
    This pick by the Tennesee Titans officially ends the era of Steve Mcnair in Tennessee and ushers in a new era with a new Quarterback. Leinart is probably the best Quarterback in the draft despite a good combine by Jay Cutler.
    Thoughts- Probably the best pick of the draft. Leinart is the best Quarterback in the draft and will likely be the best Pro.

    4. New York Jets- Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon
    Look for the Jets to trade down with so many massive holes. They don’t pick cutler or young here after the trade for Ramsey.
    Thoughts- Another possible trade-down but again low interest. Ngata is a good defensive tackle. He will fit well.

    5. Green Bay Packers- AJ Hawk, LB, OSU
    The Packers, who are a perennially bad team on defense, select by far the best Linebacker in the draft. Hawk will go along well with rising star Nick Barnett and the rest of the Packers linebackers. This is an extreme boost to their defense which is getting better and better every year. If they were able to sign a big name secondary player they would possibly be considered moving toward the top of the game. Some expected them to sign a big name FA LB due to their expanse of cap space however they passed on all of them and pick hawk here.
    Thoughts- Great pick. The best linebacker in the draft will be stellar alongside Nick Barnett, a rising star.

    6. Oakland Raiders- Vince Young, QB, Texas
    After cutting Kerry Collins in the offseason, the Raiders pick possibly the second best QB in the draft in Young. Young will succeed early in his career with the ability to pass to Moss and Porter as well as run out of the backfield.
    Thoughts- Average selection. In my opinion, Vince is not that good of a QB, however the Raiders think otherwise. He may be a good combination with moss and porter.

    7. San Francisco 49ers- Chad Jackson, WR, Florida
    This year’s Troy Williamson flies up the draft board and is selected by the 49ers, thus creating a potentially potent offensive attack with Jackson and Alex Smith. Jackson had one of the best combines of any player and became a top ten pick despite a down year for receivers in the NFL.
    Thoughts- Solid pick. Chad Jackson will add a deep recieving game to their weak passing game.

    8. Buffalo Bills- Brodrick Bunkley, DT, FSU
    Last off-season the Buffalo Bills lost their monster defensive tackle and probably best defensive player in Pat Williams to the Vikings via Free Agency. Unless they address this position through free agency this year, Bunkley looks like the perfect pick for them
    Thoughts- Good pick despite the fact that they miss out on Ngata.

    9. Detroit Lions- Michael Huff, S, Texas
    The Detroit Lions FINALLY decide to draft some defense. A possible pick would have been Jay Cutler however the Lions signed Jon Kitna in the offseason. Their biggest hole is Safety with Terrence Holt leaving in FA so the best pick here is Huff.
    Thoughts- Finally they decide to NOT draft a wide reciever. Who knows what would have happened if Jackson was still on the board. Anyways, good pick for the Lions.


    10. Arizona Cardinals- Vernon Davis, TE, Maryland

    Denny Green is ecstatic as Vernon Davis, easily one of the best Tight ends to ever come into the NFL as a rookie, drops to the cardinals. This gives the Cardinals an even more potent offensive attack then Denny had in his days in Minnesota. This pick makes Kurt Warner’s job twice as easy with targets such as Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald already on the team and now a newly installed running game involving Edgerrin James.
    Thoughts- Great pick. The Cardinals will now have the most intimidating offense in all of football.

    11. St. Louis Rams- Jimmy Williams, CB, Viginia Tech
    After Adam Archuleta leaves to test the free agent market, the Rams go in a different direction and draft defense to go with their potent offensive attack. Williams is a hard hitting safety who still has a knack for getting picks. He can play both Safety and Cornerback making him extremely versatile in the secondary.
    Thoughts- Good pick. Williams is versatile and is a good replacement for Archuleta. He can play both safety and Cornerback so look for them to test his abilities in Training camp.

    12. Cleveland Browns- Mario Williams, DE, NC State
    The Browns may attempt to trade this pick either up to snag Ngata, or down to spread the talent around other positions. The browns had an incredible year in free agency and Mario will help as a pass rusher in the 3-4. He is athletic and can play LB or DE.
    Thoughts- Solid selection. The browns will be a playoff team next year.

    13. Baltimore Ravens- Eric Winston, OT, Miami
    Mathias Kiwanuka could be a good pick here but the Ravens go with Winston. They are weak on both sides of the ball regarding the line but their defense isn’t as big of a concern. Ogden is getting older by the day and they need someone else to go alongside him for the time being. Winston could open big holes for Chester Taylor or Jamal Lewis if they re-sign one of them.
    Thoughts- Good pick. Possible replacement for ogden and temporary help on the o-line.

    14. Philadelphia Eagles- Mathias Kiwanuka, DE, Boston College
    The Eagles get a huge steal here with Kiwanuka dropping all the way to the 14th pick. They need another defensive end to go along side Kearse and Kiwanuka is a perfect pick. Kiwanuka has a large frame and is a great pass rusher.
    Thoughts- Very good pick. Kiwanuka fell down the board and the Eagles had to take a chance on him. Teaming up with Kearse will be scary.

    15. Atlanta Falcons- Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State
    The Falcons bring in another defensive end to add more power to their already stingy defense. A Wide Reciever may have been a good pick here but with Chad Jackson already off the board and Santonio Holmes having a bad combine, Tamba is the best pick here.
    Thoughts- Bad pick, but seeing what is left on the board it is the best possible.


    16. Miami Dolphins- Ashton Youboty, CB, Ohio State
    The Dolphins have absolutely no help at the Cornerback position, their two starters being Travis Daniels and Andre Goodman. Ashton is another player who has gone a long way up most draft boards and is also a versatile player in the secondary.
    Thoughts- Great pick. Ashton is also versatile.

    17. Minnesota Vikings- Jay Cutler, QB, Vanderbilt
    After Daunte Culpepper is traded to the Dolphins for a second round pick, the Vikings bring in a rookie Quarterback to learn under 37 year old veteran Brad Johnson, the current starter in Minnesota. A year under a good veteran will help Cutler develop and also give the Vikings depth at QB.
    Thoughts- Cutler is the perfect understudy to brad johnson. Great pick.

    18. Dallas Cowboys- Marcus Mcneill, OT, Auburn
    The Cowboys are in HUGE need of a premier offensive tackle and Mcneill is the best left on the board. McNeill is 6’9” and 330 pounds, a terror for Defensive Ends in college.
    Thoughts- Marcus Mcneill is a MONSTER. Awesome pick.

    19. San Diego Chargers- Winston Justice, OT, USC
    The chargers realize the need at offensive line and draft a big time tackle for LaDanian Tomlinson to run behind In the future. Justice could probably play anywhere on the offensive line but the chargers have the biggest need at tackle.
    Thoughts- Winston Justice may not be the best o-lineman from USC but he is the best pick to help Ladanian run better.


    20. Kansas City Chiefs- Chad Greenway, LB, Iowa State


    The Cheifs select Greenway to go along with Derrick Johnson in the Linebacking corps. Solid selection.

    Thoughts- Good pick.

    21. New England Patriots-Demeco Ryans, LB, Alabama
    Surprisingly the Patriots were the worst team in the NFL this year on the defensive side of the ball. Teddy Bruschi isn’t going to be in the NFL much longer if his health problems continue.
    Thoughts- Demeco is the perfect pick for the Patriots.



    22. Denver Broncos- Camerion Wimbley, DE, Florida State

    In a surprise pick, the Broncos select Wimbley to replace one of their two ends from the browns defensive line.
    Thoughts- May be a stretch at this point. They would be better off trading down rather than drafting Wimbley.


    23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Sinorice Moss, WR, Miami
    The Buccaneers select another target for young Quarterback Chris Simms to throw to. Joey Galloway is getting up there in age and Clayton is not quite ready to lead the receiving corps. alone.
    Thoughts- Moss adds another dimension to their passing game. Good pick.


    24. Cincinnati Bengals- Rodrique Wright, DT, Texas
    The Cincinnati Bengals were absolutely horrible with interior defense last season. They are in need of a defensive tackle so they pick the best available, Rodrique Wright
    Thoughts- Wright is the best player left in a DT heavy (no pun intended) draft. Good pick.

    25. New York Giants- Jonathan Scott, DT, Texas
    In another move to upgrade the defensive line, the Giants pick the best interior lineman available. Strahan is closing in on the end of his career and the line may need help for the future
    Thoughts- Another defensive tackle. Good fit for the Giants to play alongside Strahan.

    26. Chicago Bears- Leonard Pope, TE, Georgia
    The Bear passing game is in need of help and the defense has no holes.
    Thoughts- A tight end is a good pick here, especially one the caliber of Leonard Pope.


    27. Carolina Panthers- Mercedes Lewis, TE, UCLA
    The Panthers finally go out and get another threat in the pass game to go along with Steve Smith. Mercedes Lewis is a huge player and will be huge in the NFL. Has the hands of a receiver but can block like a true tight end.
    Thoughts- good fit- Adds another attack to the Panthers offense.

    28. Jacksonville Jaguars- DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis
    Fred Taylor’s career is close to coming to an end and DeAngelo is the best back left in the draft. Touted as a top ten pick in early mock drafts, Williams drops to the late 1st round as the need for Running Backs is narrowed.
    Thoughts- Solid selection, although Taylor may have a few years left in the tank.

    29. Denver Broncos- Derek Hagan, WR, Arizona State
    Tall, fast, and agile, Hagan is a good receiver to replace the aging Rod Smith in the broncos offense. They are in dire need of good receivers and
    Thoughts- Hagan is a good pick considering what is left on the board, and with Terrell Owens going to Dallas.



    30. Indianapolis colts- Lendale White, RB, USC.
    The Colts pick up the big bruiser running back, White, after losing Edgerrin James to the Cardinals in free agency. Edgerrin was never known for his goal line running so Lendale looks to bring that dimension back to the Colts offense.
    Thoughts- Good goal line runner-- Good for the Colts. Maroney is another possible pick here.

    31. Seattle Seahawks- Darryl Tapp, DE, Virginia Tech
    Not too many needs on this team but they do need a little bit more pressure up front. Darryl Tapp is a good pass rusher and an athletic specimen.
    Thoughts- Good pick. Best available athlete.

    32. Pittsburgh Steelers. Antonie Cromartie, CB, FSU
    The Steelers, super bowl champions, have no real pressing needs as of now. Cromartie is a good pick to help the secondary.
    Thoughts- They don't need much else... They all have their rings.

    You mean: Kurt Warner, Edgerrin James, Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Vernon Davis AND A POROUS O-LINE.. right?

    Offenses can't score a single point if the QB is sacked and the runner is stuffed for a loss on every play. And that's what'll happen with no O-Line. And no, I don't think Steve Loney is the next Alex Gibbs.

    I'm not saying they're not loaded. They are. "More potent" means they will score more points. Any rational fan would have a hard time predicting this considering niether the Colts of '04 nor the Rams of '99 or '01 did it. It is possible but to say by drafting some unproven player "gives them a more potent offensive attack" is absurd at this point. That is some serious company and I don't believe many rational people are ready to put the Cardinals, with or without Davis in that company.

    I must say for the most part, that is a good mock draft.
