2009 NFL Mock Draft: Round Three

Last update: Saturday, April 25, 2009
Next update: SATURDAY AFTERNOON IF ANY BREAKING NEWS.
Also: 2010 NFL Mock Draft updates next week.

Order now based on the real 2009 NFL Draft Order.
  1. Detroit Lions: Jared Cook, TE, South Carolina
    Scott Linehan, Detroit's new offensive coordinator, had Randy McMichael in Miami and St. Louis. Linehan will ask for a pass-catching tight end for his new offense. And it's not like Matt Stafford couldn't use a reliable guy to go over the middle.

  2. St. Louis Rams: Dannell Ellerbe, ILB, Georgia
    Will Witherspoon will be moving over to weakside linebacker, creating a need for the Rams in the middle.

    Pick change; previously Kevin Barnes, CB

  3. Kansas City Chiefs: Sammie Lee Hill, NT, Stillman
    As predicted, the Chiefs are moving to a 3-4 defense. That's currently a problem because they're missing most of the 3-4 essentials - including a dominating nose tackle.

  4. Seattle Seahawks: Sherrod Martin, CB/FS, Troy
    This is the absolute latest the Seahawks should address the corner position. They can't afford to have Josh Wilson starting across from Marucs Trufant.

  5. Dallas Cowboys: Fenuki Tupou, OT, Oregon
    As mentioned in my 2009 NFL Offseason Needs, Flozell Adams' play really fell off in 2008. Already a false-start machine, Adams surrendered 7.5 sacks (tied for most in his career) and was whistled for 13 penalties. Adams turns 34 in May.

  6. Cincinnati Bengals: Paul Kruger, DE, Utah
    The Giants have shown us that it's all about getting pressure on the quarterback. The Bengals finished the year on a 4-3-1 clip, but they still had major problems pressuring opposing signal callers.

    The Bengals signed defensive end Antwan Odom to a $25 million deal this offseason, but in 12 games, he had 26 tackles and three sacks. Guess all of his production in Tennessee was the result of the opposition focusing on Albert Haynesworth and Kyle Vanden Bosch.

  7. Oakland Raiders: Chris Clemons, SS, Clemson
    Michael Huff looks like a very probable cap casualty this offseason, while Gibril Wilson was just released. The Raiders will have to find themselves some safety help.

    Chris Clemons to the rescue! Clemons, already a "great player" in one man's opinion, ran a 4.41 at the 2009 NFL Scouting Combine. Oakland may as well begin printing Clemons jerseys.

  8. Jacksonville Jaguars: Ramses Barden, WR, Cal Poly-SLO
    Matt "Coke Zero" Jones was a very good option as Jacksonville's possession receiver in 2008. Unfortunately, he got into trouble again and was subsequently released. The Jaguars will be looking for two wideouts in the 2009 NFL Draft.

  9. Green Bay Packers: Jamon Meredith, OT, South Carolina
    Chad Clifton surrendered 6.5 sacks in 2008 - click here for the the 2008 sack totals allowed by NFL left tackles - and even worse, he's coming off knee surgery and entering his contract year. The Packers will be looking for a new left tackle relatively early in the 2009 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously Troy Kropog, OT



  10. San Francisco 49ers: Andre Brown, RB, N.C. State
    The 49ers need a backup plan in case Frank Gore gets hurt. DeShaun Foster somehow pulled a great performance out of thin air last year, but even he's not around anymore. San Francisco will be looking for a power back in the middle rounds.

  11. Buffalo Bills: Marcus Freeman, OLB, Ohio State
    If the Bills are able to take a defensive end at No. 28 instead of Brandon Pettigrew, they'll have to find an outside linebacker in the next few rounds. They can't afford to get debacled by Keith Ellison for another season.

  12. New York Jets: Chase Coffman, TE, Missouri
    The Jets have such severe depth issues at tight end that they were using defensive linemen at the position in minicamp. Chase Coffman would be a solid blocking tight end to complement Dustin Keller.

  13. Houston Texans: Darcel McBath, FS, Texas Tech
    The Texans' secondary has been an abomination for years and has always missed a ball-hawking leader.

  14. San Diego Chargers: Percy Harvin, WR, Florida
    A.J. Smith likes to take chances on players with character concerns in the draft. Percy Harvin, who allegedly tested positive for marijuana at the Combine, would be a steal here. The Chargers will need a new starter across from Vincent Jackson in 2010 because Chris Chambers' contract expires after this upcoming season.

    Like Matt, I'm not buying into this "Round 1 lock" B.S. concerning Harvin. I had him in the second round before the positive test results. His durability issues are huge and he's too raw of a receiver.

  15. Denver Broncos: Pat White, WR/QB, West Virginia
    If Josh McDaniels can't get Mark Sanchez, he'll be looking for "his" quarterback in the middle rounds. The Broncos could also be searching for a receiver because Brandon Marshall is likely to be suspended for part of the 2009 season. Pat White fits both needs.





  16. Washington Redskins: Gerald Cadogan, OT, Penn State
    If the Redskins can't land Michael Oher or Andre Smith in the first round, they'll have to take a right tackle here.

  17. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mike Thomas, WR/KR, Arizona
    Despite the fact that the Buccaneers just paid Michael Clayton an obscene amount of money, they still need a downfield target.

  18. Detroit Lions: Sen'Derrick Marks, DT, Auburn
    To consistently win in the NFL, you need a quarterback. You need to protect your quarterback. And you need to get to the other quarterback. With Matt Stafford and William Beatty, the Lions will have their first two bases covered. Now, it's time for William Clay Ford to finally get to third base. Umm... yeah, that came out wrong. I just puked all over my keyboard.

    Pick change; previously Dannell Ellerbe, ILB

  19. Green Bay Packers: Keenan Lewis, CB, Oregon State
    Charles Woodson's days at corner are numbered. He turns 33 in October, so he'll have to make the full-time move to safety eventually. The Packers, who need depth at corner right now, will have to find a starter across from Tramon Williams sometime soon.

  20. Denver Broncos: Darry Beckwith, ILB, LSU
    The Broncos just added Andra Davis to the roster, but he's not even close to being an impact player. Denver will need some of those to avoid another epic meltdown.

  21. Philadelphia Eagles: Cedric Peerman, RB, Virginia
    It's no secret that the Eagles will be looking for a successor for Brian Westbrook early in the 2009 NFL Draft. Cedric Peerman is a great fit for Andy Reid's West Coast offense.

  22. Minnesota Vikings: Antoine Caldwell, C, Alabama
    Matt Birk's play fell off a bit last year. He signed with the Ravens anyway, so the Vikings will be looking for a new center to compete with John Sullivan.



  23. Miami Dolphins: Cody Brown, DE/OLB, Connecticut
    Joey Porter really slowed down toward the end of the 2008 campaign (one sack in his final four games) and the Dolphins could use another body to get to the quarterback; excluding Porter, no Miami player had more than five sacks. Even worse, the Dolphins failed to register a single sack against Baltimore in their first-round playoff loss.

  24. Baltimore Ravens: Alex Magee, DE/DT, Purdue
    Some defensive line help/depth for the Ravens. Trevor Pryce and Kelly Gregg will be 34 and 33, respectively before Thanksgiving.

  25. New England Patriots: Andy Levitre, G, Oregon State
    The soon-to-be 33-year-old Stephen Neal is in his contract year. If the Patriots wait until next April to obtain a successor, they may have to start a rookie up front. I doubt Bill Belichick wants to do that.

  26. Atlanta Falcons: Chip Vaughn, SS, Wake Forest
    Lawyer Milloy was beaten like a mule on Arizona's two long touchdown plays in the playoffs. Strong safety is in dire need of an upgrade. Chip Vaughn seems like the perfect candidate for Mike Smith's defense.

    Pick change; previously Dorell Scott, DT

  27. New York Giants: Mike Mickens, CB, Cincinnati
    Adding depth at corner never hurts, especially when you're drafting one of the top players available.

  28. Indianapolis Colts: Austin Collie, WR, BYU
    The Colts are looking for a receiver to replace the recently released Marvin Harrison, which would allow them to keep Anthony Gonzalez in the slot.

  29. Carolina Panthers: Herman Johnson, G, LSU
    With the departure of Frank Omiyale, the Panthers are really hurting for depth up front.

  30. Tennessee Titans: Gerald McRath, OLB, Southern Miss
    Keith Bulluck, who turns 32 next April, will hit free agency after the 2009 season. I don't see the Titans giving Bulluck a huge contract with his age being a factor.

  31. Arizona Cardinals: Phillip Hunt, DE/OLB, Houston
    As I wrote in my 2009 NFL Offseason Needs pages: No one on the Cardinals had more than five sacks during the regular season. Darnell Dockett stepped up with three sacks in the playoffs, but he's a defensive tackle. Arizona needs help with its exterior pass rush.

  32. Pittsburgh Steelers: Jairus Byrd, CB/S, Oregon
    With Bryant McFadden gone, the Steelers need some help at corner. A successor for Ryan Clark is needed as well.



  33. New England Patriots: Troy Kropog, OT, Tulane
    Matt Light, 31 in June, will see his contract expire in 2010. Nick Kaczur, meanwhile, is entering his contract year.

    Pick change; previously Nic Harris, SS

  34. Cincinnati Bengals: Shonn Greene, RB, Iowa
    The Bengals re-signed Cedric Benson to a 2-year, $7 million contract, but that doesn't mean that they're not going to take a running back in the middle rounds of the 2009 NFL Draft. Benson is unreliable; he could be getting a DUI as you're reading this. Besides, Shonn Greene, who just had a great Pro Day - check the 2009 Pro Day Results for details - is a steal down here.

  35. Chicago Bears: Brandon Williams, DE, Texas Tech
    Adewale Ogunleye, 32 in August, is a free agent after this season. He had just five sacks - a career-low for him if you take away his rookie year. Alex Brown, turning 30 in June, had just six sacks in 2008. Meanwhile, Mark Anderson, who somehow mustered 12 sacks as a rookie, has only six sacks since. He managed only one last season. He'll also be a free agent a year from now.

  36. New York Giants: Trevor Canfield, G, Cincinnati
    There's nothing wrong with adding depth to the offensive line, especially if you don't have many needs.
