Insider NFL Mock Draft Version 2.0

There has been some movement in the top-10 and within the last few picks in this second update.

Insider Mock Draft Version 1.0

1) St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford/QB/Oklahoma

First Mock Selection: Sam Bradford/QB/Oklahoma

Analysis: Again, as long as he checks out medically, Bradford is the guy. They have to get their quarterback of the future out of this draft.

Needs: QB, TE, DE, TE, WLB, CB, ORT, RB

Other Possibilities: Gerald McCoy. He probably fits in their scheme a little better than Suh.

2) Detroit Lions: Gerald McCoy/DT/Oklahoma

First Mock Selection: Gerald McCoy/DT/Oklahoma

Analysis: McCoy seems to be a better fit for their defensive scheme. However, it wouldn't be a surprise at all if they went with Suh here.

Needs: CB, S, G, DE, DT

Other Possibilities: Ndamukong Suh. He's certainly capable of playing in Detroit's one-gap scheme.

3) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ndamukong Suh/DT/Nebraska

First Mock Selection: Ndamukong Suh/DT/Nebraska

Analysis: There's simply no way they pass him up based on need and his talent.

Needs: WR, DE, CB, DT

Other Possibilities: Gerald McCoy.

4) Washington Redskins: Trent Williams/OT/Oklahoma

First Mock Selection: Russell Okung/OT/Oklahoma St.

Analysis: It's believed the team has the more athletic Williams higher on their draft board than Okung.

Needs: ORT, OLT, G, WR, DE, CB

Other Possibilities: Russell Okung.

5) Kansas City Chiefs: Russell Okung/OT/Oklahoma St.

First Mock Selection: Trent Williams/OT/Oklahoma

Analysis: They have to protect their major investment in QB Matt Cassel.

Needs: OT, G, OLB, TE, WR, CB, S

Other Possibilities: Trent Williams. Either way, they must significantly improve their offensive line.

6) Seattle Seahawks: Derrick Morgan/DE/Georgia Tech

First Mock Selection: Derrick Morgan/DE/Georgia Tech

Analysis: They would have loved to get one of those top two offensive tackles, so they'll settle for another big need.

Needs: OT, DE, SS, G, RB, WR

Other Possibilities: One of the two top offensive tackles.

7) Cleveland Browns: Eric Berry/S/Tennessee

First Mock Selection: Jimmy Clausen/QB/Notre Dame

Analysis: There's a belief in league circles that the team has their eye on a few mid-round quarterbacks, so they'll pass on Clausen here. In defensive coordinator Rob Ryan's system, he puts a lot on his safeties to cover ground. Berry covers ground better than any safety in this draft. He also can play slot cornerback.

Needs: OLB, QB, RB, WR, FS

Other Possibilities: Jimmy Clausen. A trade down to acquire extra picks wouldn't be a surprise considering how much help this team needs on both sides of the ball.

8) Oakland Raiders: Jason Pierre-Paul/DE/South Florida

First Mock Selection: Eric Berry/S/Tennessee

Analysis: Owner Al Davis loves athletic talent and Pierre-Paul has plenty of that. He also would fill a need.

Needs: DT, ORT, OLT, DE, QB

Other Possibilities: Eric Berry, Derrick Morgan.

9) Buffalo Bills: Dan Williams/DT/Tennessee

First Mock Selection: C.J. Spiller/RB/Clemson

Analysis: Here's your new nose tackle in Buffalo's 3-4 defensive scheme. They can get their developmental quarterback later on.

Needs: OLB, OLT, DT, WR, QB

Other Possibilities: C.J. Spiller, Jimmy Clausen.

10) Jacksonville Jaguars: Joe Haden/CB/Florida

First Mock Selection: Joe Haden/CB/Florida

Analysis: They must improve their shaky secondary.

Needs: WR, QB, DE, CB

Other Possibilities: Jimmy Clausen, Earl Thomas.

11) Denver Broncos (from Chicago Bears): Rolando McClain/LB/Alabama

First Mock Selection: Rolando McClain/LB/Alabama

Analysis: After the surprising release of veteran ILB Andra Davis, they'll look to replace him here.

Needs: WR, ILB

Other Possibilities: Dez Bryant.

12) Miami Dolphins: Brandon Graham/DE-OLB/Michigan

First Mock Selection: Brandon Graham/DE-OLB/Michigan

Analysis: They must replace Joey Porter and Jason Taylor's production as pass rushers.

Needs: OLB, WR, FS, RB

Other Possibilities: Earl Thomas, C.J. Spiller. They don't own a second round pick, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Miami traded down a bit.

13) San Francisco 49ers: C.J. Spiller/RB/Clemson

First Mock Selection: Bryan Bulaga/OT/Iowa

Analysis: Tough call here as there are three players on the board who could fill needs. It certainly would be a surprise if Spiller dropped down this far. Getting speed at running back is a huge need. Spiller also could help upgrade their return game.

Needs: ORT, CB, RB, OLB

Other Possibilities: Bryan Bulaga, Brandon Graham, best cornerback.

14) Seattle Seahawks (from Denver Broncos): Earl Thomas/S/Texas

First Mock Selection: Earl Thomas/S/Texas

Needs: OT, DE, S, G, RB, WR

Other Possibilities: Bryan Bulaga, C.J Spiller.

First Mock Selection: Kyle Wilson/CB/Boise St.

Analysis: Joe Staley can move to RT with Davis in the fold.

Needs: ORT, CB, OLB, RB

Other Possibilities: Bryan Bulaga, if he drops. Jason McCourty.

18) Pittsburgh Steelers: Maurkice Pouncey/C/Florida

First Mock Selection: Maurkice Pouncey/C/Florida

Analysis: Pouncey would give them youth and an upgrade for the interior of their offensive line.

Needs: WR, C, G, CB, DE

Other Possibilities: Jared Odrick. They need to eventually to start looking at Aaron Smith's successor. It remains to be seen if Ziggy Hood is that guy.

Other Possibilities: Dez Bryant, Jermaine Gresham, Ricky Sapp.

23) Green Bay Packers: Ricky Sapp/DE-OLB/Clemson

First Mock Selection: Anthony Davis/OT/Rutgers

Analysis: While Brad Jones was a nice surprise last season, Sapp would be an even better pass rusher for the Packers.

Needs: CB, OLB, OLT

Other Possibilities: Kareem Jackson, Mike Iupati.

24) Philadelphia Eagles: Mike Iupati/OL/Idaho

First Mock Selection: Everson Griffen/DE-OLB/USC

Analysis: He can play guard or tackle.

Needs: CB, FS, C, DL, G

Other Possibilities: Everson Griffen, Jerry Hughes, trade up for Earl Thomas, trade up for Maurkice Pouncey, Patrick Robinson. They could also trade down to select Robinson or another cornerback.

25) Baltimore Ravens: Jermaine Gresham/TE/Oklahoma

First Mock Selection: Dez Bryant/WR/Oklahoma St.
