MOCK DRAFT 1-15-07
1. Oakland- Calvin Johnson WR GT
The Raiders will be saying goodbye to Randy Moss and Jerry Porter this offseason. They must rebuild their offense, and Andrew Walter has tons of potential and is in good favor with the people in Oakland. Their problems would only be amplified with the acquisition of a rookie QB. I believe they take the man beast #1.
2. Detroit- Adrian Peterson RB OU
The Lions are impossible to predict, taking first round wide recievers THREE years in a row. I fully expect them to take Peterson with the lack of production they get at RB and their failure with Joey Harrington may have them turned off to investing so highly in another first round QB.
3. Cleveland- JaMarcus Russell QB LSU
Culpepper Jr. is Romeo Crennels's last hope. I hope Braylon Edwards wont try to fight him like Charlie Frye...
4. Tampa Bay- Jamaal Anderson DE Arkansas
Tampa is expected to say goodbye to Simeon Rice very soon. Hopefully Jamaal is his heir apparent.
5. Arizona- Joe Thomas OT WISC
Protect your investment in Matt Leinart
6. Washington- Alan Branch DT Mich
I expect Dan Snyder to add Warren Sapp and Nate Clemets to his allstar D.
7. Minnesota- Dwyane Jarrett WR USC
Looking for Teddy Ginn? Nope. Get the real deal in DJ.
8. Houston- Brady Quinn QB Notre Dame
Carr is done, and Plummer is not going to be a reliable option.
9. Miami- Leon Hall, CB Michigan
This team is stocked on offense and will have to give Culpepper a legitimate shot in 08 to justify signing him. Matt Roth is a good player so I dont see Gaines Adams here, instead they go with Leon Hall who projects into an instant starter.
10. Atlanta- Tedd Ginn, WR OSU
Lelie will be a free agent, Roddy White and Jenkins are still spotty... Finneran is not a downfield threat. If you dont succeed try try again.
