  1. New England Patriots: Rodney Hudson, G/C, Florida State
    Fits the Patriots mold perfectly as an offensive lineman with his instincts, football IQ, versatility, athleticism and character.

  2. Buffalo Bills: Tyron Smith, T, USC
    The Bills need to select a left tackle to protect their franchise quarterback.

  3. Cincinnati Bengals: Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
    The Bengals can get a quarterback on the cheap in Round 2, and they could care less about Mallett's character concerns.

  4. Denver Broncos: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
    The Broncos have Demaryius Thomas, but he's far from a polished receiver and Floyd will make an immediate impact.

  5. Cleveland Browns: Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
    The Browns need to surround Colt McCoy with weapons if he's going to pan out.

  6. Arizona Cardinals: Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame
    Rudolph has durability problems, but he's too talented to pass up on at this point for a team that needs a tight end.

  7. Tennessee Titans: Aaron Williams, CB, Texas
    Corner is one of the top needs for the Titans, and while Williams can be inconsistent he has a great skill set and would be a good player in Tennessee.

  8. Dallas Cowboys: Mike Pouncey, G, Florida
    The Cowboys need to get younger on the offensive line and Pouncey's an underrated prospect. He struggled at center, but his best position is guard. He has the potential to go in the top 25 of the 2011 NFL Draft.

  9. Washington Redskins: Mikel Leshoure, RB, Illinois
    Leshoure is a big back and tough to bring down. The Redskins need to move on from Clinton Portis.

  10. Houston Texans: Stephen Paea, NT, Oregon State
    Paea has good weight room strength and a nice motor, but he doesn't get much penetration and he has short arms.

  11. Minnesota Vikings: Christian Ponder, QB, Florida State
    Leslie Frazier commented on drafting a quarterback early. Christian Ponder might be worth the gamble here.

  12. Detroit Lions: Anthony Castonzo, T, Boston College
    Will the Lions finally come around in admitting they need to upgrade at offensive tackle, or will they continue to not put pieces around Matt Stafford to protect him?

  13. San Francisco 49ers: Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
    Taylor has a high upside and the 49ers are drafting on value here - not need.

  14. Denver Broncos: Cam Heyward, DE, Ohio State
    I don't care about Heyward's performance in the Sugar Bowl - his big game is exactly why I dislike him as a prospect. He's too wildly inconsistent. One big game with Heyward means nothing, and that's why he is going in the second round.

  15. St. Louis Rams: Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois
    The Rams will focus on building their defense, and it all starts up front.

  16. Oakland Raiders: Quan Sturdivant, OLB, North Carolina
    Sturdivant is an inside linebacker at North Carolina, but he is more of a weakside linebacker in the NFL. He doesn't have very good size and he struggles to stack and shed. The Raiders have a hole here next to Rolando McClain.

  17. Jacksonville Jaguars: Marcus Cannon, G, TCU
    Cannon is a talented player who is a mauling run blocker. He's big, and as long as his character checks out he could be in play here for the Jaguars.

  18. San Diego Chargers: Gabe Carimi, T, Wisconsin
    Carimi fills a big need for the Chargers at right tackle, and I'm not sold on his draft stock rising in the last month.

  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Nate Irving, ILB, N.C. State
    The Bucs' second biggest need next to defensive end (besides another defensive end) is inside linebacker. Barrett Ruud is likely as good as gone, and the Bucs want a thumper in the middle of their defense.

  20. New York Giants: Jurrell Casey, DT, USC
    Defensive tackle is a big need in New York, and Casey can be a disruptive force. He is the interior pass rusher they lack.

  21. Seattle Seahawks: Ryan Williams, RB, Virginia Tech
    Williams had a disappointing season, but there's no doubt in my mind he's a first-round talent.

  22. Indianapolis Colts: Greg Jones, OLB, Michigan State
    Jones fits the mold of what the Colts like in their Tampa-2 defense, and he's an absolute steal at this point in the 2011 NFL Draft.

  23. Philadelphia Eagles: Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
    Smith fills a need at corner for the Eagles and fits their scheme which stresses a lot of man coverage.

  24. Kansas City Chiefs: Johnny Patrick, CB, Louisville
    Patrick's stock is on the rise, and he is a good value here in the second round.

  25. Green Bay Packers: Mason Foster, LB, Washington
    Foster would play inside linebacker in the Packers 3-4 defense. I'm a big fan of his - I love his tenacity and competitive fire.

  26. New York Jets: Jeremy Beal, DE/OLB, Oklahoma
    The Jets need to be looking for rush linebackers in the 2011 NFL Draft. They need guys that can make plays.

  27. Baltimore Ravens: Martez Wilson, ILB, Illinois
    Wilson has a high upside, but he is coming off an ACL tear in 2009. Talent-wise, he's the best inside linebacker elligible for the 2011 NFL Draft.

  28. New Orleans Saints: Chris Carter, OLB, Fresno State
    Carter is an underrated prospect out of Fresno State. He's a physical specimen who plays up to his abilities.

  29. Chicago Bears: Ben Ijalana, G, Villanova
    Ijalana would bring a lot of talent to the Bears' offensive line. They need to do a better job of protecting Cutler and creating running lanes.

  30. Pittsburgh Steelers: Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia
    I still like Dowling, but his stock seems to be falling lately and he ends up in the Steelers' lap here.

  31. Atlanta Falcons: Sam Acho, DE, Texas
    The Falcons could improve their defensive end rotation, and Acho has a little upside. I like his athleticism and burst.

  32. New England Patriots: Curtis Brown, CB, Texas
    The Patriots can never have enough cornerbacks on their roster, and Brown is a very talented prospect.

Why would Denver take a WR when they have Brandon Llyod who had over a thousand yards receiving and 11 TDs. The broncos need defensive players.

Todd McClure is not an elite Center??? your kidding I hope. Even so they Drafted his replacement in Joe Hawley last year.

I really like Mason Foster as a prospect as well, he is a tackling machine, but why would the Packers draft and ILB? We just paid Chillar a lot of money last year and just paid big money to desmond Bishop. We still ahve to the 2 veterans in Barnett and Hawk. We may let Barnett walk and restructure Hawk's deal, but it just doesn't seam like a smart pcik considering other needs at OL, OLB, CB.

J.J. Watt is not a 3-4 end. Watching him play every snap this year his talents would be wasted playing end in a 3-4. He is a 4-3 end! He has a first step to get around the tackle, a relentless motor and a nose for the football. 21 TFl doesn't sound like someone who takes up blockers, hes a playmaker. He got stronger as the season went on, including stepping up in big games against OSU and Iowa. H'e listed at 292lbs, but reading recent articles he is around 280, which also isn't ideal size for a 5 tech. You need to re-evaluate Watt, and soon you'll come to the realization that J.J. should be playing 4-3 end.

I am not sold on Mallet either; I read a mock where they noticed a weird hitch in his delivery and when I watched him in the bowl game I noticed this hitch too, so even with the big arm it is going to give the defensive back an extra second to break on the ball negating some of the arm stregnth; Mallet is far from polished like a Roethlesberger; this guys relaease is just too slow with the hitch; a guy that reminds me a little of Peyton Manning in terms of brain power and accuracy is the Boise State quarterback; think he is very underrated; I would take him over Kyle Orton right now.

2 CBs for the Steelers, C'MON MAN! Really? Why would they? I mean Mcfadden is bad, but they won Superbowl 43 with him and in superbowl 40 they had deshea freakin townsend and won, hard for any QB to(besides to get exposed in the secondary when you are on your butt all day. They will address OL or DL in the first rd with either pouncey,watt, or cimari and maybe corner in the second,but I still think they address ILB or DL they need to find Farriors and Aaron Smiths replacements.

best mock I have seen yet; kind of hits the point of what the teams should do; not what they will do. What they should do is what is important though.

Pats take two rush linebackers? I expect one, and maybe a situational rusher in the late 2nd or 3rd round... I mean Matt himself said he liked Jermaine Cunningham, who's been starting all year as a rookie...

Mark my words Matt, Cameron Heyward will be a stud, as will Ryan Mallet. You are a joke as a scouter. Last year, not only did you say that Jimmy Clausen and Damian Williams were the best prospects at there respected positions(QB-WR), you also trashed Mike Williams, and Colt McCoy. Mike Williams just turned out to lead rookie receivers in yards, receiving touchdowns, and receptions, and McCoy beat out two veterans for the starting job. Granted, McCoy isn't going to turn any heads but he did MUCH better than Jimmy Clausen.

The Chiefs draft is completely wrong. First of all, they need a RT not a LT. Branden Albert has played at a high level all year. And there is no way they select a CB in round 2. They have their starting corners in Flowers and Carr, and they got their nickel last year in Arenas. They'll draft a WR or OLB in the first 2 rounds.

Thank you...A mock that finally gives us Brandon Harris instead of reaching for a tackle in the 1st..Da Bears, Now how about Orlando Franklin in the 2nd??

Hey "Finally someone..." I agree with you on Locker. I also see bust on both Gabbert and Mallett. But Locker is going to be a star, but unfortunately for him he's going to drop to Seattle or even the second round.
Finally someone who's really been watching Locker... 01-08-2011 12:57 pm (total posts: 2)

I think you're assessment on the 49ers is spot on. Locker is the only other top QB that has had credible time playing under center. I also believe Gabbert will go before Jake (to Arizona). But I believe Gabbert will bust. I've watched Jake for 4 years now (Oregon Duck fan here!!! Soon to be the NATIONAL CHAMPS!!!), if he goes to a west coast offense scheme team (Arizona, 49ers, Seattle) he WILL be a star. There's really no doubt in my mind about it. Trust me on this... his Huskies teams over the years have sucked big time, and he has had absolutely no help. Arizona (or any team that passes on him) is going to regret not picking him. I laugh at all the peeps that think Locker isn't worthy.

Hey Matt, I enjoy both Walt and your mocks. But this one is all over the place bad. If you don't know the history of teams you should ask for help or do better research. Your whole second half of the 1st round is terrible. I can 100 percent say none of those picks will happen. The Eagles have never taken a linebacker in the 1st round ever in Reid's era let alone Bruce Carter who won't be a 1st round pick. I'll be very shocked if Stefen Wisniewski is picked ahead of Mike Pouncey let alone a 1st round pick. And I get it, your trying to make a point about Jake Locker but guess what Rodgers and Lienert both fell and both were better prospects then he is. He's a late 1st round pick if lucky. lol Muhammad Wilkerson isn't a 1st round pick and both Brandon Harris and Janoris Jenkins will go much higher.
