JagNation Mock Draft Update

This is the latest mock draft from JagNation.com's Charlie Bernstein.

1. Oakland Raiders- JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU- Calvin Johnson is the best talent in the draft, but he'd be useless in Oakland with Porter, Moss, and a gaping hole at the quarterback position.

2. Detroit Lions- Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson- Matt Millen can't take another receiver, and Adams seems like more of a sure bet than Brady Quinn.

3. Cleveland Browns- Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame- The Browns need a quarterback, and Quinn is a local guy. Maybe grooming a new quarterback can buy Romeo Crennel and co. a couple more years.

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech- Jon Gruden loves this guy, and what's not to love? The Bucs can finally exhale after Cleveland takes Quinn.

5. Arizona Cardinals- Joe Thomas, LT, Wisconsin- Thomas is the top tackle on the board and represents a major area of need for the team. Thomas could be the main ingredient to turn around a pathetic franchise.

6. Washington Redskins- Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville- The 'Skins are new to drafting, but Okoye will anchor their front four and make that defense immediately better.

7. Minnesota Vikings- Leon Hall, CB, Michigan- The Vikings defense is great against the run, horrible against the pass. Hall will be an immediate help to that secondary.

8. Atlanta Falcons- LaRon Landry, S, LSU- Landry is the best safety available and the Falcons have been targeting him since January. His physical play will set a tone for what looks like a pretty good secondary.

9. Miami Dolphins- Levi Brown, LT, Penn State- The Dolphins have had major offensive line problems in the last few years, and Brown will help whoever their quarterback is, stay upright.

10. Houston Texans- Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma- Peterson is simply too great of a talent for the Texans to pass on. They can use Peterson and Ahman Green together in the backfield and always have a healthy threat on the field.

11. San Francisco 49ers- Adam Carriker, DE, Nebraska- Carriker is a versatile end who does everything well. S.F. needs help on their line and Carriker will anchor it for many years.

12. Buffalo Bills- Patrick Willis, LB, Ole Miss- Willis is probably the best linebacker available and the Bills need a long term replacement for London Fletcher-Baker.

13. St. Louis Rams- Alan Branch, DT, Michigan- The Rams are light and soft up front and have been for years. Branch will plug up the middle for them and possibly return their defense to mediocrity.

14. Carolina Panthers- Greg Olsen, TE, Miami- The Panthers need another pass-catcher, and Olsen's value fits the pick. Olsen is a legitimate vertical threat who must be accounted for.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers- Darrelle Revis, CB Pittsburgh- Revis fits a need as he is a very fast, talented, play-making corner. Revis has a local connection, as he's already played many games at Heinz Field, and the value fits the pick.

16. Green Bay Packers- Marshawn Lynch, RB California- With the loss of free agent running back Ahman Green, the Packers take advantage of Lynch's availability at the 16th pick. Lynch is a fast guy who should be able to make an immediate impact in Green Bay.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars- Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas- This is the Jaguars worst nightmare coming true, Ted Ginn, Reggie Nelson, and Jamaal Anderson all still on the board at pick 17. Anderson has great upside and could be a long-term replacement for Spicer or Hayward. Simply too much talent to pass on.

18. Cincinnati Bengals- Reggie Nelson, S, Florida- Nelson is a play-making safety and a solid citizen, which is needed in Cincy. Nelson could start on opening day for Marvin Lewis.

19. Tennessee Titans- Ted Ginn, WR, Ohio State- The Titans have virtually no one at wide receiver, and Ginn represents a deep threat, and also a special teams weapon.

20. New York Giants- Lawrence Timmons, LB, Florida State- Although Timmons ran poorly at the combine, he is a play-maker at a position that the Giants have a desperate need.

21. Denver Broncos- Paul Posluszny, LB, Penn State- The Broncos have a need a linebacker, now that they released Al Wilson, and Posluszny could be a guy that steps in and plays well with that defense.

22. Dallas Cowboys- Robert Meachem, WR, Tennessee- The Cowboys will now have a long-term replacement at wide receiver for the aging Terrell Owens and Terry Glenn. Meachem could be the second-best WR in this draft.

23. Kansas City Chiefs- Dwayne Bowe, WR, LSU- Bowe is a big, solid wide receiver that should be able to start immediately for the Chiefs. Bowe can be a long-term solution at the position.

24. New England Patriots- Jon Beason, LB, Miami- The Patriots have an aging linebacker group, and Beason could be a play-maker in their system for years to come.

25. New York Jets- Jarvis Moss, DE, Florida- The Jets have needs all over their defense, and Moss is a very good value at pick #25. Moss played his best in the Gators biggest games.

26. Philadelphia Eagles- Aaron Ross, CB, Texas- Ross could immediately be the most talented Eagles corner, and he can be worked in slowly behind Lido Sheppard and Shelden Brown.

27. New Orleans Saints- Joe Staley, OT, Central Michigan- The Saints can always use help on the line, and Drew Brees will appreciate having a more secure pocket.

28. New England Patriots- Brandon Meriweather, S, Miami- The Patriots have few areas of need, but one of which is safety. Meriweather is a physical guy, and can possibly be a Rodney Harrison clone.

29. Baltimore Ravens- Justin Blalock, OG Texas- The Ravens have a need on the offensive line, and Justin Blalock should be a road-grater for years to come. Blalock is 6'3", 320 lbs., and was an Outland Trophy finalist in 2006.

30. San Diego Chargers- Michael Griffin, S, Texas- Some scouts have Griffin as the second-ranked safety, some have him going in the second round. The Chargers have a need at safety and Griffin is a solid player at pick #30.

31. Chicago Bears- Zach Miller, TE, Arizona State- The Bears have a slight need a tight end, and Miller is the second-rated TE on the board. Miller is a big guy at 6'4", 256 lbs., and has good hands.

32. Indianapolis Colts- Justin Harrell, DT Tennessee- It's rare that a Super Bowl champion has a pressing need, but the Colts desperately need size up front. Harrell will supply that size and help a team that finished dead last in the NFL against the run.
