I could certainly see it going that way (and would be really happy) but I also feel like the Bears are going receiver, which would change things up quite a bit for the Vikings. I'm also not sold that White has passed Cooper and will be first off the board.

Thank you for the reading and feedback!

It is too up in the air right now, but I don't see Chicago taking a WR at seven - especially if an edge rusher or Danny Shelton is available.

Minnesota would be foolish to pass on Cooper for anyone not named Leonard Williams if he falls to pick 11.

I'll put together a mock eventually, I've just been waiting to be motivated and for things to settle a bit before I do.

Yours looks pretty good. Can't say I'd be thrilled to see Gurley go to Detroit or Shelton to Chicago. The picks make sense, I just don't like seeing the enemy come away with beasts like that. :mrgreen:

I don't think Tennessee will take Mariota though. They may trade it to someone who will, but I don't think the Titan's would/will if they stay at two. I think they'd opt for Leonard Williams and try to develop Mettenberger.

I like having the Raiders go defense, even though it's Williams who I'm not sure will be there. I've thought for a while that they could be the team to pull the first surprise of this years draft and go defense. Almost every Mock has them going WR, or Williams if he falls. I think they could go for Shelton or one of the pass rushers over the WR. They just hired Del Rio as their coach so I imagine he wants to pump up that defense, and the WR crop is very deep this year so they can still grab a high profile WR in the early 2nd.

If the Titans think Mariota is a franchise guy, you HAVE to take him. The majority of successful NFL QBs are high picks. What if the Titans are mediocre for the next 5 years and are picking in the 8-18 range? It's really tough to get a franchise guy in that range. You end up taking Jake Locker. When picking at the top of the draft, you HAVE to take a QB if the value is remotely close. It could be 10 years before you get the chance again.

While I would love if Cooper fell to us, I don't think it's very likely. He just doesn't strike me as the type of prospect that will fall. He is a high ceiling, high floor guy. Maybe one of the top 2-3 guys when it comes to combining high potential and low risk. He's not likely to be a polarizing figure, teams probably have him ranked on similar spots on their board, probably between 4-8. I think it's much more likely that Kevin White falls. White is much more of a boom/bust prospect that teams might shy away from.

I think the media might be overrating this year's passrushing crop a bit. Not so much with regards to their talent level, but with their potential fit. So many of these guys are in the mold of a 3-4 rush LB, but teams like the Vikings doesn't seem like a great fit for a 245 lb pass rusher. Then again, I thought Barr was a 3-4 OlB and I questioned the fit, and he worked out fine. I just don't think this crop of passrushers is a great fit for all the teams in the top 15. That being said, I'm guessing the BPA when we pick will be a passrusher, in which case we should trade down. I don't think Sherff or Waynes will be available.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

As far as the top ten goes, this is the hardest year I have ever had trying to figure out what exactly will happen. Something tells me that Tennessee will either trade the #2 overall pick or they will take Marcus Mariota themselves.

Roughly 6 days and 24 minutes remain until the draft begins! Here is a mock draft I just wrote up. I haven't done one for a couple of weeks. I would appreciate any feedback. Also, I would appreciate it if the rest of the board posted their own mock drafts in this thread.

Thank you everyone.

I've been fiddling around for about 2 weeks trying to put a mock together, but that's what's made it so difficult. I think when you boil it down, there's 3 true elite prospects, Williams, Cooper and Gurley, then a bunch of at best "really nice" prospects. Neither of the QB's are true Andrew Luck style elite prospects, they're just the best of what's there. There's no Jonathon Ogden, Champ Bailey or Julius Peppers here either. Just a bunch of guys you'll be happy with.

A couple of ramblings before I post my mock;
I wouldn't be surprised if Waynes is not the first CB taken. I've seen alot of grumblings about his change of direction ability. I wonder if Kevin Johnson or Marcus Peters could sneak past him and be the first off the board.

I think Mariota goes 2 but only if it's a trade, which I believe is going to happen. If Tennessee gets stuck there I think they go for Leonard Williams. In my mock to be posted I have him next to Tennessee's name but that's only because I can't figure out who's going to be making the pick. I've went back and forth between the Jets, Browns, Chargers and Eagles. I even wondered if Tennessee could trade the 2 to San Diego for Rivers and 17, then flip 17 to Minnesota for Peterson.

I think Gurley goes top 10, and to a place I don't think anyone else has him going.

I think Andreas Peat is the first OL taken in a bit of a surprise. Given that he's a true OT, I think he'll get the nod over Collins and Scherff.


I have a few surprises so here it goes:

1 – Bucs – Winston, Jameis, QB, Florida St.
2 – Titans - Mariota, Marcus, QB, Oregon
3 – Jaguars– Fowler. Jr, Date, DE/OLB, Florida
4 – Raiders – Wiliams, Leonard, DL, USC
5 – Washington – Beasley, Vic, OLB/EDGE, Clemson
6 – Jets – Cooper, Amari, WR, Alabama
7 – Bears – Shelton, Danny, DT ,Washington
8 – Falcons – Dupree, Bud, EDGE, Kentucky
9 – Giants – Gurley, Todd, RB, Georgia (as far as I know I haven't seen Gurley mocked to them at all, I think Gurley goes somewhere between 8-10)
10 – Rams – Peat, Andreas, OT, Stanford
11 – Vikings – White, Kevin, WR, West Virginia (not endorsing, just a gut feeling if he's there he's the pick)
12 – Browns – Parker, Devante, WR, Louisville
13 – Saints – Collins, La’el, OL, LSU
14 – Dolphins – Waynes, Trae, CB, Michigan St.
15 – 49ers – Scherff, Brandon, OL, Iowa
16 – Texans – Perriman, Breshad, WR, UCF
17 – Chargers – Gordon III, Melvin, RB, Wisconsin
18 – Chiefs – Johnson, Kevin, CB, Wake Forest
19 – Browns – Armstead, Arik, DL, Oregon
20 – Eagles – Dorsett, Phillip, WR, Miami
21 – Bengals – Peters, Marcus, CB, Washington
22 – Steelers – Ray, Shane, EDGE, Missouri ( rumored foot injury drops him into their lap)
23 – Lions – Brown, Malcom, DT, Texas
24 – Cardinals – Kendricks, Eric, LB, UCLA
25 – Panthers – Flowers, Ereck, OT, Miami
26 – Ravens – Humphries, D.J, OT, Florida
27 – Cowboys – Jones, Byron, CB, Connecticut
28 – Broncos – Clemmings, T.J. OT, Pittsburgh
29 – Colts – Harold, Eli, OLB, Virginia
30 – Packers – Gregory, Randy, EDGE, Nebraska (not sure about this one, but the Packers typically go PBA and Gregory here fits the bill)
31 – Saints – Agholor, Nelson, WR, USC
32 – Patriots – Goldman, Eddie, DL, Florida St.

Alright, Have at it. :v):

Thank you for doing a mock. I appreciate your effort and thank you for contributing to the thread!

Just a few thoughts on your mock:

- I think that Mariota will for sure go number two overall like you have stated. However, I believe that the Titans will take him if they do not get an offer that blows them away.

- I don't think Scherrf falls out of the top ten. If he does, I think that we will take him.

- Shane Ray is going to drop in the draft, but I am not quite sure he drops that far down. Maybe he does though.

- Unless I missed it, I think Landon Collins is still a first round talent.

Overall, you did a good job. I appreciate you taking the time to do a mock draft!

No prob! Sorry I didn't get one done sooner, but most of my internet time has been relegated to an Ipod 4, not exactly a fun way to hack out a long post. 8)

We'll have to respectfully agree to disagree on the Titans taking Mariota. I can see the logic behind it, I just remain unconvinced they're that interested in him. I could be wrong and I'll definitely eat some crow if proven wrong. Ultimately I don't think that will matter, I'm pretty confident Tennessee will trade that pick.

I didn't set out to drop Scherff or Ray, and I was actually somewhat surprised with where I landed them. I just tried to let it flow, going on BPA, BPA that fits need, and perceived fit. I think Scherff being seen as strictly a Guard is going to get him. Probably not to the extent I dropped him, but still I think it will factor in. Peat is a Pure Tackle prospect, and Collins is being projected as being able to play OG or RT. Scherff seems to have been pigeonholed as a pure OG candidate. Add in there are some pretty good Guard prospects in the 2nd and 3rd (Ali Marpet, Cann and Tomlinson), along with perception that you shouldn't take an OG until later in the draft, unless they're a Steve Hutchenson Blue chip Hall of Famer type. I don't think anyone sees Scherff in that light. I just wonder if the teams at the top of the round might be inclined to pass with the idea they can grab someone else in the early second. I myself wouldn't be mad if he was the pick because while I don't think he's Hutch, I do think he's a guy who could play at a Pro Bowl or borderline Pro Bowl level for a long time. If I can get a guy who can play at fairly high level for 8-10 years, and make 5-6 pro bowls then I'll take it and be very happy about it.

That said, I actually believe the Vikes will trade down unless one of the impact defensive players or Cooper unexpectedly falls into their lap.

Shane Ray was a tough one. I don't know how serious this injury is, and how far if at all it's going to drop him, plus he's a tough fit.

Landon Collins I think will be a semi surprise fall. I allow he could still go in the first but I think him being seen as more of an in the box type could cause him to drop in a pass happy league. I've heard increasing talk that Damarious Randall could be the first Safety off the board.

I can't wait for Thursday so we can see, it's so close but so far! One of the favorite days of the year! :beerock: :wake :cheer: :dude: :banana2:

I agree on the notion that we should expect some surprise first round picks. I mean, Deone Buccanon, Marcus Smith, Dee Ford, Jimmie Ward, and Dominque Easley were not projected to be first round picks last year. Yet, they were.

I cannot wait for Thursday. I will have my final mock draft done an hour before Thursday. Skol

This will be wrong. HOW wrong is the big question. This was a fairly quick first run. I'll be editing a bit tonight and tomorrow. Have at it!

Version 1.0
* indicates a motherf*cking trade

1 – Bucs – Jameis Winston
2* – Cleveland - Marcus Mariota
3 – Jaguars– Leonard Williams
4* – Falcons– Vic Beasley
5 – Washington – Dante Fowler, Jr.
6 – Jets – Andrus Peat
7 – Bears – Danny Shelton
8* – Raiders – Amari Cooper
9 – Giants – Brandon Scherff
10 – Rams – Kevin White
11* – Chiefs – Devante Parker
12 – Titans – Todd Gurley
13 – Saints – La'el Collins
14 – Dolphins – Trae Waynes
15 – 49ers – Arik Armstead
16 – Texans – Malcom Brown
17 – Chargers – Bud Dupree
18 – Vikings – Marcus Peters
19 – Titans – Cameron Erving
20 – Eagles – Breshad Perriman
21 – Bengals – Shane Ray
22 – Steelers – Kevin Johnson
23* – Cowboys– Melvin Gordon
24 – Cardinals – Byron Jones
25 – Panthers – D.J. Humphries
26 – Ravens – Phillip Dorsett
27* – Lions – Eddie Goldman
28 – Broncos – Eric Kendricks
29 – Colts – Landon Collins
30 – Packers – Jalen Collins
31* – Vikings– Shaq Thompson
32 – Patriots – Eric Rowe

Some notes:

Predicting trades is HAAAAARD.

I think Cleveland is just dysfunctional and desperate enough to make the Titans very, very happy. I'm not about to predict what the compensation will be but it'll be a lot. It benefits the Titans a lot to trade out of this position if they're truly confident with The Mett. Even if they're not, the bounty they receive for the pick will make it too hard to pass.

I honestly have no idea what the Bears are going to do. Shelton is the natural fit, mostly because they have such a HUGE need there. Will Sutton isn't good to begin with and would be worse in Fangio's 3-4. He's just not big enough. I almost mocked Waynes to them but they need an anchor badly. I'm not sure waiting until the second round would be wise. You could make the case Shelton is their "BPA" there for that scheme.

The Jets are tough to figure out, too. I could easily see them go Dupree or Kevin White. I actually had White to them but switched it. They need tackle help and Peat can start on the right side before moving on to LT in 2016. Signing Brandon Marshall gave them a bit of breathing room but it still wouldn't surprise me if they took him.

There's got to be a few more trades but the way this fell that's all that really made the most sense.

I might be off with my Detroit pick (well, on most of these probably). I nearly put Coleman here. Detroit has shown a ton of interest in Coleman and I have a hard time believing he'll be there for their second pick but it could happen. As it stands they somehow have a very balanced roster with a hole at DT.

I'll post some more notes later probably. Feedback welcome!

Some notes:

Predicting trades is HAAAAARD.

I think Cleveland is just dysfunctional and desperate enough to make the Titans very, very happy. I'm not about to predict what the compensation will be but it'll be a lot. It benefits the Titans a lot to trade out of this position if they're truly confident with The Mett. Even if they're not, the bounty they receive for the pick will make it too hard to pass.

I honestly have no idea what the Bears are going to do. Shelton is the natural fit, mostly because they have such a HUGE need there. Will Sutton isn't good to begin with and would be worse in Fangio's 3-4. He's just not big enough. I almost mocked Waynes to them but they need an anchor badly. I'm not sure waiting until the second round would be wise. You could make the case Shelton is their "BPA" there for that scheme.

The Jets are tough to figure out, too. I could easily see them go Dupree or Kevin White. I actually had White to them but switched it. They need tackle help and Peat can start on the right side before moving on to LT in 2016. Signing Brandon Marshall gave them a bit of breathing room but it still wouldn't surprise me if they took him.

I was hoping you would eventually participate dead_poet. Thank you for doing so!

Overall, I like your ideas. I am glad that you were bold and predicted trades. I never do because trades are so hard to predict hahaha.

I am a Shaq Thompson fan through and through, but something tells that me Minnesota would trade back into round one to snag Erick Kendricks and not Thompson.

I cannot wait for tomorrow night. SKOL.

Sure! It's fun, even though if it feels a little like a lesson in futility and like trying to correctly identify lottery numbers.

I can see why.

That's sure possible and I like him too but in this scenario Kendricks is gone at 28. I don't know if Rick wants or is able to part with enough ammo to move up from 45 to 27. That's a pretty substantial move. The way I figured it the Saints are in rebuild mode and may want to get even more picks and have already selected in round 1. They may be willing to part with another to get even more. Even going from 45 to 31 is going to be a costly move, so I don't see it really happening this year but I threw it in there anyway.

I know! It's been grueling to get to this point. Less than 24 hours now!

Version 2.0
* indicates a motherf*cking trade

Some changes all over. The Bears, Jets and Lions picks are giving me fits. If the top five work out this way I think I have to go back and give the Jets either Cooper or White, which will screw a whole bunch up.

I'm tempted to mock Fisher to the Eagles. I can't decide between Fisher and Phillips to the Broncos. Whoever it is needs to start immediately (which is why I had Kendricks there originally).

The Patriots are another one that's hard to pin down. They could go a number of ways but Collins here could be a steal and they need some corner help after losing Revis.

I keep seeing Perryman to the Packers and I love that because I think Kendricks is the superior player but I'm counting on Thompson to frustratingly do the right thing, shifting Matthews back outside.

Lacking necessary ammo (even with additional picks given by the Chiefs here) the Vikings don't trade back into the first round this year. Rick decides the value is in the second round and maximizes the picks there instead.

1 – Bucs – Jameis Winston
2* – Cleveland - Marcus Mariota

5 – Washington – Vic Beasley

Something's wrong here if Shelton is going above Cooper, White and Scherff. Redskins primed for a call, likely from the Saints or Titans.

I notice you have Gregory falling out of the 1st, which is certainly a high probability. If he's sitting there in the 2nd, do you take the risk?

Do you mean for the Vikings pick? Probably not. I say this mostly because I heard on NFL radio yesterday from a former GM/host that he has "good information" that there might be more that comes out about Gregory. If true, other teams probably are privy to such information and thus he's off Rick's board entirely.

Version 3.0

Some major changes, especially up top. Also removed La'el Collins, who is being questioned for a homicide. Even if he's cleared, this is horrible timing for him. I don't know how a GM can take him in the first round right now, if at all. In this version picks 8-10 were a bit difficult as this is not the ideal situation for any of those teams. I'm tempted to have the Chiefs trade with the Rams but for now I'll leave it. I'm tempted to mock Maxx Williams to Denver but I'm thinking they may bite on Martellus Bennett, who is reportedly on the trade block.

1 – Bucs – Jameis Winston
2* – Cleveland (from Tennessee) - Marcus Mariota
3 – Jaguars – Amari Cooper
4 – Raiders– Leonard Williams
5* – Falcons (from Washington) – Dante Fowler, Jr.
6 – Jets – Vic Beasley
7 – Bears – Kevin White
8* – Washington (Falcons) – Brandon Scherff
9 – Giants – Andrus Peat
10 – Rams – Ereck Flowers
11* – Chiefs (from Vikings) – Devante Parker
12* – Titans (Cleveland) – Todd Gurley
13 – Saints – Danny Shelton
14 – Dolphins – Trae Waynes
15 – 49ers – Arik Armstead
16 – Texans – Malcom Brown
17 – Chargers – Bud Dupree
18 – Vikings (Chiefs) – Marcus Peters

Here's my final Final Revision.

Notes/ramblings:

I'm going with a Cleveland trade up to #2 for Mariota.

I Dropped La'El Collins out of the first, Unless he's fully and publicly exonerated he's untouchable. I doubt that's going to happen in the next 8 hours.

I'm still calling a Gurley to the G-men shocker, they like to go BPA, and Gurley would be the BPA.

I still believe the Vikes are trading back, I just can't diagnose where to, and for who.

One of my first mocks I did, (which I didn't post) had Jax taking Kevin White, I'm semi reverting to that thought by giving them Cooper instead of Fowler. The most important thing they can do is back up Bortles and give him every shot and weapon to be the Franchise savior. Cooper is one of the three Best Players in this draft, and would step in day one as Bortles go to guy.

1 – Bucs – Winston, Jameis, QB, Florida St.
2 – Browns - Mariota, Marcus, QB, Oregon (Trade w/ Titans)
3 – Jaguars - Cooper, Amari, WR, Alabama
4 – Raiders – Wiliams, Leonard, DL, USC
5 – Washington – Fowler. Jr, Date, DE/OLB, Florida
6 – Jets – White, Kevin, WR, West Virginia
7 – Bears – Beasley, Vic, OLB/EDGE, Clemson
8 – Falcons –Dupree, Bud, EDGE, Kentucky
9 – Giants – Gurley, Todd, RB, Georgia
10 – Rams – Flowers, Ereck, OT, Miami
11 – Vikings – Parker, Devante, WR, Louisville
12 – Titans – Waynes, Trae, CB, Michigan St. (Trade w/ Browns)
13 – Saints – Shelton, Danny, DT ,Washington
14 – Dolphins – Perriman, Breshad, WR, UCF
15 – 49ers – Scherff, Brandon, OL, Iowa
16 – Texans – Agholor, Nelson, WR, USC
17 – Chargers – Gordon III, Melvin, RB, Wisconsin
18 – Chiefs – Johnson, Kevin, CB, Wake Forest
19 – Titans – Randall, Damarious, S, Arizona State (Trade w/ Browns)
20 – Eagles – Jones, Byron, CB, Connecticut
21 – Bengals – Peters, Marcus, CB, Washington
22 – Steelers – Ray, Shane, EDGE, Missouri
23 – Lions – Brown, Malcom, DT, Texas
24 – Cardinals – Gregory, Randy, EDGE, Nebraska
25 – Panthers – Peat, Andreas, OT, Stanford
26 – Ravens – Humphries, D.J, OT, Florida
27 – Cowboys – Armstead, Arik, DL, Oregon
28 – Broncos –Erving, Cam, OL, FSU
29 – Colts – Harold, Eli, OLB, Virginia
30 – Packers – Collens, Jalen, CB, LSU
31 – Saints – Rowe, Eric, DB, Utah
32 – Patriots – Goldman, Eddie, DL, Florida St.

I'm glad I'm not alone out on the Gurley to the Giants limb. Now remember, if the branch gets cut out from under us, don't look down... that way we won't fall. It works in the cartoons. :lol:

That Green-Beckham to the Ravens pick is real gutsy. After Ray Rice and all that drama. It makes sense on the field, I'll admit.

Edit: I will not be a happy man if Green Bay gets Ray, Detroit gets Gordon and Chicago takes White. Again, makes tons of sense, just hate to see the enemy get those kind of players.

That's a solid effort. The surprises for me are:

Gurley #9 to the Giants. Can definitely see it happening and if it does the Giants get some credit for not having any leaks about their interest in him.

Peat #10 to Rams. Agree that the Rams would like another OT (even after drafting Robinson #1 overall last year). Peat is probably the safest bet for a pure LT but that would mean they are giving up on Robinson at LT. If so ... that's a major draft mistake by the Rams because you don't take an OL #1 overall if he doesn't play LT. I'm inclined to think they are going to give Robinson this year at LT to see if he can handle it. If that's the case I could see them taking Scherff or Erik Flowers to play RT.

Kendricks #24 to Arizona. I personally don't think Kendricks has a first round grade. If Arizona goes this way I'd call it drafting for need over BPA.

Ray #30 to Green Bay. I hope that doesn't happen. He has a chance to be a clone of Robert Mathis. Clay Matthews and Shane Ray as edge rushers in a 3-4 could spell trouble for the rest of the NFC North. Does Ted Thompson have any history of taking guys with off-field problems in the first round?

Thing is many people seem to be of the mind that there really aren't 32 guys with first round grades. I've seen the number pegged at around 16 true first rounders. This could be a pretty wild draft if all of the GMs feel that way. We could see quite a few picks that are called reaches based on what the public's perceives the value as, as opposed to what the team thinks, as well as a bunch of trades.

I had Kendricks there in my first, I think this is the kind of player that coaches will hold in higher regard than the scouts and the TV draft pundits.

Thank you for the feedback guys. I really appreciate it.

I will admit, I surprised even myself this year with my own picks. This draft has been so confusing to project. I may only get two right when it is all said and done! :lol:

We are only about two hours away though. I cannot wait. SKOL!

Eh. Six actually correct. About four or five one spot off. Three positions right but the wrong player. I could have done better. Until next year I suppose.

Better than mine, I got one exactly right pick, Winston 1
Mariota did go 2, but not to who I said.
I got Gordon to the Chargers, wrong spot though. Then I had a few where the player went close to the spot but not the team. In other words mine was a smoking crater. :lol:
