Mock Draft 3.0
Written by JP
Tuesday, 06 April 2010
Here it is. With really nothing else to write about, here is my 3rd out of 4 mock drafts.

1.St. Louis – Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
2.Detroit – Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
3.Tampa Bay – Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
4.Washington – Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma St.
5.Kansas City – Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama
6.Seattle – Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
7.Cleveland – Earl Thomas, S, Texas

8. Oakland – Jason Pierre Paul, DE, USF

9. Buffalo – Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame

10. Jacksonville – Joe Haden, CB, Florida

11. Denver – Dan Williams, DT/NT, Tennessee

12. Miami – Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma St.
Analysis: And there it is. Bill Parcells had a lengthy 1 on 1 discussion with Dez Bryant on the second day of a 2-day visit he had with Miami. Bryant’s concerns are not with the law but with maturity and motivation. I think that Miami can provide the structure that Dez needs, and I think Parcells shocks everybody in Dolphin nation and goes with Dez Bryant at 12. Pass rusher, to me, is no doubt the biggest hole on the roster, but Miami will find it hard to pass up this kind of a playmaker to give to their franchise QB. This is more of a gut feeling than anything, though. Who really knows how that 1v1 meeting with Parcells went?


13. San Francisco – Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa

14. Seattle – Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma

15. New York (Giants) – Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Mizzou

16. Tennessee – Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech

17. San Francisco – CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson

18. Pittsburgh – Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho

19. Atlanta – Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan

20. Houston – Jared Odrick, DT, Penn St.

21. Cincinnati – Maurkice Pouncey, OG/C, Florida

22. New England – Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB, Texas

23. Green Bay – Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers.

24. Philadelphia – Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida

25. Baltimore – Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise St.

26. Arizona – Jerry Hughes, DE/OLB, TCU

27. Dallas – Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame

28. San Diego – Terrance Cody, NT, Alabama

29. New York (Jets) – Demaryius Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech

30. Minnesota – Brian Price, DT, UCLA

31. Indianapolis – Charles Brown, OT, USC

32. New Orleans – Darryl Washington, OLB, TCU


Rest of Miami’s selections:



2nd round (43 overall): Nate Allen, S, USF

I don’t see FS as a big priority, but I think that Allen has everything we are looking for in a FS. He can play in center field, and can play man coverage on a WR or TE. He can play near the box against the run, and has plenty of playmaking ability. He’s got the range to cut down some of the sideline passes that Gibril Wilson gave up last year, and is a great value at 43 overall.



3rd round (74 overall): Alex Carrington, DE/OLB Arkansas St.

Carrington really impressed at the Senior Bowl for Tony Sparano’s team. Miami has shown plenty of interest in him, and he has good value here in the 3rd round. Carrington wasn’t super productive as a pass rusher at the college level, but has a good combination of size, speed, and athleticism, and has a lot of upside playing in a 2-point stance as a 34 OLB, either on the weak side or the strong side.



4th round (108 overall): Brandon Lang, DE/OLB, Troy

Miami needs pass rushing help badly, and I don’t think that they stop once they have one guy. I think Miami goes out and gets 2 or 3 pass rushers. Lang had a very good Senior Bowl week, and will no doubt remind Parcells of another Troy product from 2005. Lang is a very physically gifted pass rusher who will excel in a 34 Defense. His athleticism might not be DeMarcus Ware’s, but he is a tremendous athlete.



6th round (4th in round): Jeff Owens, DT/NT, Georgia

Not as well recognized as his teammate along the line Geno Atkins, Owens is one of the better pure 34 NT prospects in this draft. He has tremendous strength and the perfect size for a Parcells NT, and enough athleticism to make some tackles in the backfield from time to time. Owens is tremendous against the run, and I think is a steal here in the 6th round.



6th round (5th in round): Sam Young, OT, Notre Dame

A huge, athletic OT with tons of experience. Look for Miami to spend a 6th round pick once again to look for that potential back-up to Big Jake on the left side. Gardener’s inability to crack the 53 man roster last season was disappointing, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him out of here by September. That said, the need for Jake’s back-up is desperate.



6th round (10th in round): Andre Neblett, DT/NT, Temple

Very athletic NT prospect that reminds me of Jay Ratliff.



7th round (5th in round): Jacques McClendon, OG, Tennessee

A massive guard who fits the mold of what Miami is looking for in their interior O-lineman. If Miami does trade Smiley, look for them to use a later round pick on an OG.



7th round (12th in round): Stafon Johnson, RB, USC

Johnson really impressed everybody, including Tony Sparano at the Senior Bowl, by coming back and getting out there and competing so soon after the injury. That shows a lot of character.

phinsfansc has nagged me so much about Dez Bryant that I wouldn't have a problem with the Dolphins drafting him. I think the team that drafts him had better have a foundation of discipline on the team as the Dolphins do. He will need it.

Dave, I have not nagged you or anybody else on this board about Dez Bryant. Just trying to point out that folks have agendas and that a lot of the stuff you have read on the kid is not true. This have been proven to be true with some of the allegations that are out there.

If you want to believe what is put out there without knowing the real deal, fine.

Excellent job, phinsy, as usual you examine it from a lot of angles and that's good. This is the only part I didn't agree with.

Considering the total output of what you wrote, I agree with 99% of it.

We'll agree to disagree.

I guess it depends on your feelings on Chris Clemons. I did have Miami taking a FS in the 2nd round, which I would not like, however, with the way Miami has been pursuing FS's, I can certainly see it happening.

I just feel that with Clemons entering his second year, and with some rotation going on between him and Culver, that our FS situation is fine. I think you need to adress OLB before you do the secondary, and Mike Nolan should be able to mask our dificiencies in the deep 3rd.

Also, with Dansby at ILB, the FS will not be forced to, (then again it is a philosophy), play near the box as much. He will be allowed to play a couple of steps deeper, and I think Clemons would/will be a very good player in that role.

In any case though, it doesn't matter who we have back there...we need to start getting a pass rush going.
