Updated Mock Draft

CheramieIII's 2008 NFL Mock Draft

Updated 1/13/08

1st Round

Pick Team Position Player Name School Brief Description
1 Miami OT Jake Long Michigan They need help protecting Beck more than they need defense.
2 St. Louis DT Glenn Dorsey LSU They need all the defensive help they can get.
3* Atlanta QB Matt Ryan Boston College You know they need a QB and Matt would be a good fit anywhere.
4* Oakland DT Sedrick Ellis USC You would think RB, but they already have a few.
5* Kansas City OT Ryan Clady Boise State Protection for the QB will do wonders.
6 NY Jets RB Darren McFadden Arkansas He's going to make them a lot better on offense immediately.
7 New England (from 49ers) ILB James Laurinaitis Ohio State Aging linebacking corps gets a big mean boost.
8 Baltimore QB Brian Brohm Louisville Nuff said!
9 Cincinnati WR DeSean Jackson California May lose both starters and with Jackson's 4.32 speed who cares.
10 New Orleans CB Aqib Talib Kansas The Saints won't pass on defense this year and a CB to boot.
11 Buffalo WR Malcom Kelly Oklahoma Great speed at 4.47 for his size 6'4", 217 lbs.
12 Denver DE Chris Long Virginia Should make Moss play better on the other end.
13 Carolina DE Vernon Gholston Ohio State 6'4", 260 lbs and a 4.58 40 time, this is a must pick.
14 Chicago CB Andre Woodson Kentucky You knew there were going to get a QB right?
15 Detroit CB Mike Jenkins South Florida Speed kills and in this case opposing wide receivers.
16 Arizona DE Calais Campbell Miami Great pick for a team in need of a pass rush.
17 Minnesota QB Colt Brennan Hawaii Jackson is not the future but is definitely the past.
18 Houston RB Jonathan Stewart Orgeon Great pick up for Houston, especially with the defense improving.
19 Philadelphia WR Limas Sweed Texas Too big to fall off the radar and that's exactly what McNabb needs.
20 Dallas (from Cleveland) S Kenny Phillips Miami Big, fast and can play cornerback too!
21 Tampa Bay** WR James Hardy Indiana Great hands and at 6'6" not many can cover him.
22 Washington** DE Derrick Harvey Florida Need some pass rush, NOT ANYMORE!
23 Seattle** OT Sam Baker USC Pick up some needed pass protection and run blocking.
24 Pittsburgh** OT Jeff Otah Pittsburgh 6'6", 340 lbs, can open any hole you want.
25 Tennessee** WR Early Doucet LSU They need a weapon and he's sort of like a missile, yeah he is!
26 NY Giants** WR Devin Thomas Michigan State They need another receiving threat and Toomer's not getting younger.
27 San Diego** OLB Dan Connor Penn State Great addition and immediate impact player. Like they need more.
28 Jacksonville** TE Fred Davis USC Big Target with great hands.
29 Green Bay** RB Rashard Mendenhall Illinois Definite need and definite great pick.
30 San Francisco (from Colts)** WR Adarius Bowman Oklahoma State Big guy at 6'4", 215 lbs and a 4.48 40, not to shabby.
31 Dallas** RB Steve Slaton West Virginia Double J might be gone and a Slaton/Barber backfield is scary.
32 No Pick (Patriots forfeit)

2nd Round
Dre Moore, DT, Maryland

3rd Round
Beau Bell, ILB, UNLV

4th Round
David Vobaro, OLB, Idaho

5th Round
Andy Studebaker, OLB, Wheaton

6th Round
Alexis Serna, Kicker, Oregon State

7th Round
Terrell Vinson, CB Purdue

Re: Updated Mock Draft

Does anyone know how much experience phillips has at CB? If hes got experience and both CB and S then maybe I can justify the saints taking him at #10.

I feel exactly the opposite. They drive me crazy.

The draft doesn't really even make sense until free agency has wound up and wound down. I mean we don't even know what juniors are going to be in the draft.

Take the example above. If we were to secure Samuel or Gay in free agency, would the Saints really consider a CB for the #10 pick?

I think speculation is a reach. Mock drafts in January is little more than fantasy focus.

Now free agency talk this time of year is really interesting. All we don't know right now is who is going to be tagged. But available free agents lists are solid.

How would our defense improve if we had Haynesworth, Briggs and Samuel? I'd bet it would be better than any three draft picks we could secure.

Here's to free agency!

Only Atlanta choked in an unchokable situation... Life is definitely good.

Re: Updated Mock Draft

..considering that McKenzie hurt his knee, sure you pick CB...
the Saints need to match the division's WRs.

Re: Updated Mock Draft

LB not till the third, huh? Interesting.

We need an immediate impact at CB, so sign a FA.
Draft a LB and a Safety.
Draft a late WR and CB.

Re: Updated Mock Draft

Like I've said before I think the Saints will move on Samuel and Gay and grab one of the big DT's in FA also.

I think the linebackers will improve as does everything around them and yes we will draft a CB in the first. Big Mac is out all of next season and if we don't draft a 1st round CB we'll be in the same situation we were last year even if we do sign both Samuel and Gay, still in need of help at CB

I love the optimism Cher, but I think you might be giving our FO too much credit. I hope you're right though...

Re: Updated Mock Draft

I'll go ahead and throw this one out there, no offense Cher, but I don't think Talib is going to be even the second best corner in the draft. Thoughts?
