Forum 2008 Mock Draft: Round Two
Alternative Version

This is the Forum 2008 NFL Mock Draft.

Thirty-two users on the WalterFootball.com Forums got together and had a 7-round 2008 NFL Mock Draft. Below are all of the picks and analysis from each person.

Next regular update: Regular 2008 Mock Draft later this week.

  1. Miami Dolphins: Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College
    By Leo Fender:

    With tackles cut prior to the draft, this is an area that needs to be adressed. Both Gosder Cherilus and Anthony Collins might be slight reaches at this juncture, but I have to go with need before Best Player Available at this point.

  2. St. Louis Rams: Cliff Avril, DE, Purdue
    By candyman82:

    I made this selection because I needed a 3-4 defensive end, and after Cliff Avril there is a clear dropoff.

  3. Atlanta Falcons: Joe Flacco, QB, Delaware

  9. New Orleans Saints: Pat Sims, DT, Auburn

  10. Buffalo Bills: Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
    By bills_red:

    Terrence McGee is suited to be a No. 2 corner; not a No. 1. Jabari Greer would probably be better off as a nickel back, and Ashton Youboty has yet to step up and prove he was worth a third-round pick back in 2006. The newly acquired William James is also nothing more than a nickel. So, the Bills have some good depth, but lack that stud but itís not really a need in a Tampa-2.

    Antoine Cason is a big, physical cornerback who can keep pace with vertical threats and big possession guys. He supports well against the run and is a good tackler for a cornerback. Cason also has excellent balls skills with the ability to take it to the house.

  11. Denver Broncos: Dre Moore, DT, Maryland
    By jimmyp:

    I sent my big board (of five) in with five picks to go and was pleasantly surprised to see my No. 1 player get picked. I really like Dre Moore - the guy's an absolute beast - and think he will be a productive defensive lineman for years to come.

    As for other interests, well, I was mainly looking at WR, MLB and S. Both receivers in the area here, Malcolm Kelly and Early Doucet had some question marks lately. Doucet with speed and Kelly with character, and God knows we don't need any more receiver character issues in Colorado. Jerod Mayo was my second choice, and his combination of size and speed could really add to the pathetic run stop from the Broncos last year. As for safety, well, after Kenny Philips, I don't see any safeties worthy of a pick until the end of the second.

    Two solid picks here so far for Denver. Let's see what's left in the fourth for the next pick.

  12. Carolina Panthers: Chad Henne, QB, Michigan
    By Warpig:

    When I saw the Joe Flacco pick by Atlanta, I wasn't sure if Chad Henne would fall to me here.

    I went with Henne since he's fundamentally sound and played in a big-time NFL style offense in Michigan. He showed that he has the ability the heave the ball down the field, and in my Carolina offense I just need a game manager for the most part. Jake Delhomme is starting to fall apart and I don't trust any of the other quarterbacks on the current roster. I felt this was a solid value pick.

    I had also considered Jerod Mayo to team with Jon Beason at the weakside linebacker spot, but the draft is pretty deep at linebacker.

  13. Chicago Bears: Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma
    By NoNonsenseCoach:

    Hopefully Devin Hester can fill in right away and replace the deep threat we lost with Bernard Berrian. However, we have needed a receiver on the other side ever since we lost Muhsin Muhammad. Malcolm Kelly fits in nicely with his big frame and great hands. He is a possession receiver, so we aren't to worried about his knees and using him to stretch the field.

  14. Detroit Lions: Jerod Mayo, ILB, Tennessee
    By animal52:

    I didn't think Jerod Mayo would be available here, as he has gotten a lot of press lately and has been projected as a first-round pick by many. He will occupy Boss Bailey's spot at the strongside linebacker position until he learns enough to take over in the middle of a Tampa-2 defense.

    With this pick and Merling at No. 1, the Lions have strengthened their defense with two solid athletes.

  15. Cincinnati Bengals: Red Bryant, DT, Texas A&M
    By thetechnocrat:

    The Bengals wanted the best defensive tackle left before they are all gone. They get the best of the rest in Red Bryant.

  16. Minnesota Vikings: Lawrence Jackson, DE, USC
    By ZN0rseman:

    Lawrence Jackson is one of the top five defensive ends in the draft, I had him listed ahead of other DE's that have been taken already. He's a high-motor prospect that should be able to step in and bolster the Vikings defense right out of the gate. Could stand to be just a tad bit quicker off of the edge, but has ideal size and strength and he does all of the right things to break up the passing game. Is stout against the run as well, so he'll fit in with Kevin Williams and Pat Williams quite well in the Vikings "You ain't gonna run the ball!" defense. Faced constant double and triple teams in college, and that is going to come to an end in the pros with the attention that's drawn inside to the Williams duo. So, I think he''ll be very productive with the Vikings, and I think I got a bit of a steal here at pick 47.



  17. Atlanta Falcons: Anthony Collins, OT, Kansas

  18. Philadelphia Eagles: Calais Campbell, DE, Miami
    By SuperT:

    No write-up posted.

  19. Arizona Cardinals: Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas
    By offset:

    After grabbing a cornerback in the first round, the Cardinals select a running back to take some of the load off Edge and provide a home-run threat in the backfield.

  20. Washington Redskins: Trevor Laws, DT, Notre Dame
    By Carnack:

    Going into the Draft the top priority of the Redskins Defensive Coordinator, Greg Blache, was to acquire a penetrating DT that can bring pressure up the middle on the QB and provide solid support for the rush defense. With the only true elite, penetrating DT talent off the board early on in Sedrick Ellis, Trevor Laws was the target from the start - only in Round Two.

    Laws led the NCAA in tackles in 2007 during his Senior season at Notre Dame, posting an unheard of 112 tackles, and was in fact the only defensive lineman to exceed 100 tackles in the nation. Laws high motor; solid strength and exceptional burst will pair well with the Redskins other young DT, 6'6" 315 Anthony Montgomery, in defensive coordinator Greg Blache's Third-ranked 2007 Run Defense.

    Coupled with First Round selection Quentin Groves, Washington addresses its number one deficiency in improving both its interior and outside pass rush while significantly strengthening the NFL's Sixth-ranked overall Defense from 2007.

  21. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Earl Bennett, WR, Vanderbilt
    By Matt McGuire:

    The Buccaneers overhaul the receiver position by adding Earl Bennett. He is a tough, athletic player who was highly productive in the SEC with not much talent at quarterback. Bennett was the No. 25 player on my big board, so I'm ecstatic that he is still available.

  22. Pittsburgh Steelers: Patrick Lee, CB, Auburn
    By bulldog0123:

    We need a corner to line up on the other side to Ike Taylor. Patrick Lee has amazing hitting abilities, run stopping and awarness. Played great in his first year starting, filling in for David Irons. He has potential to be a shutdown corner.

  23. Tennessee Titans: Chilo Rachal, G, USC
    By regoob2:

    No write-up posted.



  24. Seattle Seahawks: Fred Davis, TE, USC
    By Dumb Azz Kracka:

    Jerramy Stevens didn't work out, Marcus Pollard didn't work out. It's no secret that Seattle needs help at tight end and who better than the No. 1 rated TE on the board? The debate here was deciding between other need positions and players rated higher. I didn't see another player overall rated high enough to be taken over the value of Davis at a need position in the second round, and I didn't see another need position of WR, DT, or OL valued higher than Davis at this spot. It actually was a pretty easy choice.

  25. Green Bay Packers: Tracy Porter, CB, Indiana
    By starqb14:

    Physical, fast, great ball skills, good size - Tracy Porter really improved through the year and fits well with green bay culture. Oh, and as much value as I lost with Dustin Keller at 30, I made up for with Porter here because I had them ranked the same. The Packers are ecstatic about landing the second of the three they targeted at 30 here at 56.

  26. Miami Dolphins: Terrell Thomas, CB/KR, USC
    By Leo Fender:

    At 57, Miami uses San Diego's pick to go back to California and select Terrell Thomas. Thomas is a big-bodied, athletic, and highly versatile player who fits Bill Parcells' mold. He will be expected to contribute on defense and special teams as an immediate upgrade. Parcells is pleased with the value in landing such a fine player at the end of Round 2.

  27. Jacksonville Jaguars: Roy Schuening, G, Oregon State
    By rockhead:

    Roy Schuening is an animal, and Jack Del Rio loves his toughness. When asked about his new team, Schuening responded only with a growl, then went back to devouring his raw meat.

  28. Indianapolis Colts: Xavier Adibi, OLB, Virginia Tech
    By Bluto:

    Indy fills a big hole at linebacker with Xavier Abidi, whom we are very happy to see this far into Round 2. We considered a guard, but the talent at linebacker was much better at this point.

  29. Green Bay Packers: Martellus Bennett, TE, TexasA&M
    By starqb14:

    At No. 60, Green Bay completes the trifecta started with Donald Lee, Dustin Keller, and now Martellus Bennett. McCarthy LOVES multiple tight end sets, so these three guys should dominate. Keller's athleticism combined with Bennett's size and physicality will really add to the offense.

    The pick came down between Bennett and John Carlson, but while Carlson is a consummate professional, he just seemed really dull compared to Bennett. Also, Bennett's 67 knockdown blocks this year helped his case.

    Bennett is the third player the Packers were targeting at 30, so I guess even without trading, the day goes down as a mild success.



  30. Dallas Cowboys: Chris Johnson, RB, East Carolina
    By dWeaver44:

    Chris Johnson's speed will complement Marion Barber's power, and team with Limas Sweed to make the Dallas offense nearly unstoppable.

  31. New England Patriots: DaJuan Morgan, FS, N.C. State
    By tonynyy:

    Great athlete who's raw and will have time to develop under Rodney Harrison. He can add 15-20 pounds and be a good complement to Brandon Meriweather in the future.

  32. New York Giants: Justin King, CB/KR, Penn State
