SB Nation Mock Draft: Update

Mock Madness continues as we've made it all the way to the 13th pick.  Here's where we're at so far.

  1. Oakland: JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU
  2. Tampa Bay : (from Detroit)Calvin Johnson, WR, GATech
  3. Cleveland: Joe Thomas, OL, Wisconsin
  4. Detroit : Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson
  5. Arizona: Levi Brown, OT, Penn St.
  6. Washington: Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas
  7. Minnesota : Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma
  8. Atlanta : {From Houston) LaRon Landry, S, LSU
  9. Miami : Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame
  10. Buffalo : (From Houston) Patrick Willis, LB, Mississippi
  11. San Francisco : Adam Carriker, DE, Nebraska
  12. Denver : (From Houston) Alan Branch, DT, Michigan
  13. St. Louis : Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville
For the record, I attempted to trade with Buffalo for the 12th pick, and then Houston for the 12th pick.  I have a hankering that we need to move above Carolina at 14 to get the player we both need and value most.  I'm not tipping my hand yet, but I felt that our 1st and 3rd round picks were worth dealing in order to maximize our draft.  However the price quickly rose to a first and second, and there's no way I'd sacrifice that much.

Given who's off the board now, I'm curious what we should do.  I still have our obvious targets out there, but I'm always open to a persuasive argument.

Also, don't forget, it's a 3 round mock, so if you've got any ideas for 2nd and 3rd round targets, let me know!
