Updated 1st round mock, with all 7 Saints

CheramieIII's 2008 NFL Mock Draft

Updated 3/8/08

1st Round

Pick Team Position Player Name School Brief Description of the Pick
1 Miami DE Chris Long Virginia Need a lot of defense and Chris is a lot of DEFENSE!
2 St. Louis DT Glenn Dorsey LSU Hazlett trying to save his butt.
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 Replacement for Sapp.
5 Kansas City OT Jake Long Michigan 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) CB Mike Jenkins USF With Samuel and Gay likely leave this will fill the void nicely.
8 Baltimore QB Brian Brohm Louisville Nuff said!
9 Cincinnati DE Vernon Gholston Ohio State 6'4", 260 lbs and a 4.58 40 time, this is a must pick.
10 New Orleans OLB Keith Rivers USC Will start immediately!
11 Buffalo WR DeSean Jackson California Need a boost on offense, say no more.
12 Denver OT Ryan Clady Boise State Cutler needs the protection.
13 Carolina OT Chris Williams Vanderbilt Delhomme will be thankful for this pick.
14 Chicago RB Rashard Mendenhall Illinois Rnning back problem solved and they'll take Henne in the 2nd.
15 Detroit CB Leodis McElvin Troy State Defense gets better immediately in Motown.
16 Arizona RB Jonathan Stewart Orgeon Maybe a reach but they need one. They will take Henne in the 2nd.
17 Minnesota WR Limas Sweed Texas Could be the best WR in the draft?
18 Houston CB Aqib Talib Kansas They need help in the secondary and this will just about do it.
19 Philadelphia DE Derrick Harvey Florida The Freaks back!
20 Tampa Bay WR Malcom Kelly Oklahoma Great speed at 4.47 for his size 6'4", 217 lbs.
21 Washington DE Calais Campbell Miami Great pick for a team in need of a pass rush.
22 Dallas (from Browns) S Kenny Phillips Miami Big, fast and can play cornerback too!
23 Pittsburgh OT Jeff Otah Pittsburgh 6'6", 340 lbs, can open any hole you want.
24 Tennessee WR James Hardy Indiana Great hands and at 6'6" not many can cover him.
25 Seattle TE Fred Davis USC Big target, combine didn't help.
26 Jacksonville DE Phillip Merling Clemson This guy's been moving up most draft boards. May lose one due to FA.
27 San Diego OLB Dan Connor Penn State Great addition and immediate impact player. Like they need more.
28 Dallas CB D. Rodgers-Cromartie Tennessee State Big boost or big bust to the secondary!
29 San Francisco (from Colts) DT Kentwan Balmer North Carolina I don't think as highly of this guy as most but he is a great pick here.
30 Green Bay RB Steve Slaton West Virginia Definite need and definite great pick.
31 NY Giants OT Sam Baker USC They look to upgrade protection for the Superbowl QB.
32 No Pick (Patriots forfeit)

2nd Round
Dre Moore, DT, Maryland Could be: Trevor Laws, DT, Notre Dame

3rd Round
Patrick Lee, CB, Auburn

4th Round
Traded to the Jets for J. Vilma

5th Round
Adam Kraus, OG, Michigan Can also play center

6th Round
Kolo Kapanui, TE, West Texas A&M

7th Round
Kevin O'Connell, QB, San Diego State

I thought the 4th pick was for next years draft as its a conditional pick?

Oh also, the cowboys are going OLine and Wideout at some point in the 1st round. Look for a trade to take shape with the Cards or Lions as Williams and Fitzgerald's name continues to come out.

TO is in the last year of his contract, and they are going to need some to fill that void for Romo. Well thats if the owner out here dosent go nuts and pull off that rumored trade that the dolphins wants for the number one pick.

No, it's a 4th this year and if Vilma meets certain requirements then the Jets will then upgrade to our 2nd or 3rd next year and we will get our 4th rounder back next year.

I think DRC will be a top 15 pick, if he's there at 10 I hope we pick him.

I think DRC has the most upside of any player in the 1st round but also has the most downside too. I don't think the work ethic will be there.
