Jon's Mock Draft

As all of the rest of the staff has done a mock draft so far, I guess it's my turn. I'll explain my picks along the way.

1. St.Louis Rams: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
This is your free bingo square

2. Detroit Lions: Russell Okung, LT, Oklahoma St

I've been on the Okung to Detroit bandwagon for awhile. I just think they need to make sure they keep Stafford from becoming David Carr 2.0

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska

Real simple, they take the best DT available

4. Washington Redskins: Bryan Bulaga, T, Iowa

Now that Synder has made yet another soul selling move to get Donovan McNabb, the Eagles go LT and try to sure up their offensive line.

5.Kansas City Chiefs: Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama

Scott Pioli spends a lot of time talking about getting the "right 53" players. Remember, nobody had the Chiefs taking Tyson Jackson until a few days before the draft. McClain would fit in perfectly in KC's 3-4 defense.

6. Seattle Seahawks:: CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson

There is a lot of love for Spiller in the Northwest.

7. Cleveland Browns: Eric Berry, S, Tennessee

Cleveland needs a ton of help in the secondary and with Berry there, it's a no brainer.

8. Oakland Raiders: Taylor Mays, S, USC

Typical Raiders pick. Great athlete, marginal football player. Same time next year?

9. Buffalo Bills: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma

Marcus Stroud's injuries have gotten the best of him. McCoy is clearly the BAP at this point in the draft.

10. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame

Jaguars get their QB of the future

11. Denver Broncos: Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma St

They trade away one problem receiver, but may end up getting another. However, they need a clear #1 with Marshall gone.

12. Miami Dolphins: Earl Thomas, S, Texas

The Dolphins sure up their secondary with the versatile Thomas.

13. San Fransisco 49ers: Joe Haden, CB, Florida

The Niners need some secondary help and are more than happy to take the slipping Haden

14. Seattle Seahawks: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma

The Seahawks need to replace Walter Jones and Williams could be the guy to do that

15. New York Giants: Sean Witherspoon, LB, Missouri

Coughlin was always a needs drafter and the Giants biggest need is linebacker

16. Tennessee Titans: Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech

They need someone to replace Kyle Vanden Bosch

17. San Francisco 49ers: Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers

The 49ers need all the offensive line help they can get

18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Mike Iupati, G, Idaho

The Steelers offensive line has been held together with paper clips and chewing gum for too long

19. Atlanta Falcons: Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan

With no other first round LBs available, they go with the physically imposing Graham

20.Houston Texans: Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise St

Even before Dunta Robinson left, the Texans had secondary issues

21. Cincinnati Bengals: Demaryius Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech

The Mike Brown scouting department makes another swing big pick

22. New England Patriots: Sergio Kindle, LB, Texas

They get another piece of the linebacker puzzle that started with Mayo.

23. Green Bay Packers: Jared Odrick, DE, Penn St

They need to find a good 3-4 DE

24. Philadelphia Eagles: Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, USF

At this point, the talent outweighs the risks

25. Baltimore Ravens: Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama

Maybe the most underrated player in the draft right now

26. Arizona Cardinals: Jerry Hughes, DE, TCU

27. Dallas Cowboys: Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida

The Boys need interior line help and they'll be thrilled to get Pouncey this late

28. San Diego Chargers:Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee

The Chargers jump for joy at the thought of getting Williams this late, he'll be there NT for a decade

29. New York Jets: Terrance Cody, DT, Alabama
Rex Ryan takes a flyer on the monsterous NT from Bama

30. Minnesota Vikings: Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma

A pass catching TE is all the Vikings need on offense if Favre comes back

31. Indianapolis Colts: Brian Price, DT, UCLA

The Colts interior defensive line was still a weakness last year and Price could benefit from the double teams that'll be commanded from the edge

32. New Orleans Saints: Ryan Matthews, RB, Fresno St

Deuce McCalister isn't what he used to be and Reggie Bush will never be an every down back in the NFL
