Manning's first full Mock Draft



1. St Louis Rams - Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska - I'm sticking with the same pick as my last even with the Rams GM's comments on first round money on a Defensive Tackle being a bit much. This pick should change if the Rams decide not to address the QB position in Free Agency. Suh is simply the best player in the draft who is hard to skip over. He makes a huge impact on a defence and is able to improve the production of his defensive backs with the pressure he can apply to a QB. The offensive lines he faces in College may not be the type he'll see in the NFL, but we have seen enough from him to know that this guy has plenty of potential.

2. Detroit Lions - Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma - The trenches on both sides of the ball for Detroit struggled. The Offensive Line has done little since the 0-16 season, which would lead to a franchise great left tackle in Okung, but the Detroit coaching staff seems to be very fond of Backus, regardless of his inconsistency throughout the year. Defensive Line struggled to help the rest of the defence when pressuring the QB, so McCoy would be a reasonable choice after Suh is off the board. Although McCoy's best fit is in the 4-3 defence, his athleticism is at the top of the draft class and will add some much needed pressure on the QB.

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Eric Berry, S, Tennessee - Tampa will be looking to rebuild their defence after taking QB last year. O-line isn't a major need, so Defence will be the main focus. Safety is a need atm and Berry will be a perfect ball-hawk at this point in the draft. Berry's NFL comparison is Ed Reed, which will accompany Aqib Talib against the pass.

4. Washington Redskins - Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame - This pick should change to Okung if Shanahan decides to stick with Campbell. This team struggled on both sides of the ball, but the offense is at more of a worry with no weapons at all. Clausen is the most appropriate pick for a QB with his experience in a pro-style offense at Notre Dame. He reads defences very well and is a great leader for an offense.

5. Kansas City Chiefs - Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State - Kansas City is being renowned for having the worst line in the league, so it’s a given they wouldn't skip on a franchise Left Tackle like Okung. He is a predominate pass protector who is extremely athletic. Brandon Albert may be moving into a guard position next season which leaves an even bigger hole than there was before at Left Tackle. Scott Pioli is a smart guy and will see the need for some protection on his over-paid QB.

6. Seattle Seahawks - Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma - Seattle are rebuilding, and they should start where it is needed most, the trenches. Walter Jones' career is just about finished, so OT will be a good place to start. Trent Williams is the next best OT available. He isn't in the league of Okung in that he has weaknesses blocking the run and lacks the physicality. Although, he is extremely athletic with Oklahoma claiming he ran a 4.82 40-time. Williams can provide a foundation to build up on a skill position for the next pick.

7. Cleveland Browns - Rolando McLain, ILB, Alabama - McLain strives in the 3-4 which is a perfect fit in Cleveland. With D'Qwell Jackson healthy, McLain could do wonders for the Cleveland pass rush. He has great instincts and does well in coverage. His size gives him a great advantage, but he lacks some speed. Cleveland need help on defence where they were ranked 32nd in giving up yards. They struggle as much in the secondary, where Haden would also be a reasonable pick.

8. Oakland Raiders - Brian Bulaga, OT, Iowa - We all know of Al Davis' history in the first few rounds, but if Cable gets the chance to make the recruitment decisions, this would be a step forward for Oakland. They have struggled for years in the O-line and if the right protection can be put in, the talent of this offense can shine. Gradkowski was able to get some great performances out of the offense before his injury and with more time, Oakland could see themselves winning a few more than 4. Bulaga has turned into an elite all-round lineman who can run and pass block. His strength isn't of the best in his class, but he is great on his feet.

9. Buffalo Bills - Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers - Davis was the leader of a very impressive o-line in Rutgers this season. Buffalo have already hinted on improving their o-line this year with offense playing very average this year as the T.O signing became useless. Davis will be likely to move to the weak left side of Buffalo's line which took part in giving up the 44 sacks all year.

10. Jacksonville Jaguars - Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech - Tim Tebow has been thrown around at Jacksonville for a while as a ploy to bring in crowds. Personally, this would be a big waste of a first round pick when your pass rush made a league-low 14 sacks. Garrard was also very impressive in his final 5 or so games in 2009 which could have given him another chance for a start in 2010. It was more the lack of pressure the defensive line could put on the QB and lack of talent in the secondary. Morgan proved a lot of critics wrong in 2009 after he had lost other members of his line to the draft the previous year. He finished the season with 12.5 sacks which showed he was still able to dominate when being the biggest name in his line. I also wouldn't have any team taking Tebow for the rest of the first round, so even if Jacksonville want to get one of Florida's big names in, he should be available in their second pick.

11. Denver Broncos - Joe Haden, CB, Florida - Denver were great against the pass as one of the most surprising defences of 2009. Though the pressure and coverage may be good, their defensive backs are ageing. Bailey and Goodman are over 30 years old and Dawkins only has a few years left in him. Haden is the best corner in this draft class who could become a future pro-bowler learning under one of the best corners of the decade in Bailey.

12. Miami Dolphins - Dan Williams, NT, Tennessee - Williams is a mountain in the middle that is best suited as a 3-4 nose tackle, which suits Miami perfectly. Miami have an ageing defence that needs some size up the middle. Williams isn't a specialist when rushing the passer, but he is one of the best in this draft class at stopping the run. He was one of the best at the senior bowl which has put his stock up.

13. San Francisco 49ers - Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida - San Francisco already have a very competitive defence, but they could do with more pass-rushing threats in the trenches. Pierre-Paul may have some attitude problems, but his skill set is undeniably impressive. He is also very versatile when it comes to defensive schemes, which helps San Francisco with rumours that they are moving into a 4-3 scheme. Either way, Pierre-Paul is very effective.

14. Seattle Seahawks - Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma - Hassel beck is close to finished. He is getting too old and Seattle need a new face to run their offense. Bradford has a big injury cloud over him coming into the season which will put pressure on him to perform in the combine and show scouts that he is worthy of a first round pick. Bradford is a great QB when healthy, he makes good decisions and is very accurate, his biggest worry would probably be his arm-strength. Playing in a pro-style offense for most of his career helps him as well.

15. New York Giants - Brian Price, DT, UCLA - The Giants went from a 5-0 team to a team that couldn't function on defence against the run or pass, which is unusual for a Giants defence. They lacked pressure on the QB and the ability to stop the run up the middle. Price is a strong defensive tackle with a large frame which is very attractive to a team like the Giants who are rebuilding their defence.

16. Tennessee Titans - Greg Hardy, DE, Ole Miss - Hardy is probably the best pass rusher in the draft which would be perfect for Tennessee who had too much pressure on the secondary from the lack of pressure on the QB. Another reason why Hardy could be perfect for Tennessee is his versatility to drop back to play OLB, which could be very useful with Bulluck possibly leaving and Thornton having injury problems. Hardy's clear weakness is against the run where he lacks the size and strength to be competitive. If he stays healthy, Hardy can be very effective for this Tennessee defence which is still very vulnerable even after its comeback from 0-5.

17. San Francisco 49ers - Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland - This is a steal for San Francisco at pick 17. After addressing their defence in their first pick, they now need to give Alex Smith more time to get the ball out to weapons like Davis and Crabtree. Campbell is a premier pass protector who could complete this 49ers team to overcome their playoff drought. With Warner retired, the 49ers could take control of the West with an improved offensive line while their defence is already one of the best in the league.

18. Pittsburgh Steelers - Brandon Spikes, ILB, Florida - The Pittsburgh defence had a very down year, most likely due to the loss of Polamalu and the age of some key players. Farrior has been around a long time and it is time for Pittsburgh to groom a replacement. Spikes fits well in Pittsburgh's 3-4 scheme where Pittsburgh are lacking a physical run-stopping ILB like Spikes. Spikes will have to prove a lot of doubters wrong in the combine after being criticized for his lack of speed and coverage skills.

19. Atlanta Falcons - Patrick Robinson, CB, Florida - Atlanta had plenty of misfortune when it came to injuries to key players in Ryan and Turner. They also lost a lot of key games because they weren't able to stop the pass. There isn't a natural starter among their corners, which has affected the defence badly. Robinson isn't in the class of his opposite Florida corner, Haden, but he is sure to help this struggling unit.

20. Houston Texans - Earl Thomas, S, Texas - Houston are another team that struggled against the pass considering their offense is one of the best in the league. They are unlucky to miss out on a major need in CB with Robinson going, but they'll need the next best thing in improving their pass defence. Earl Thomas is extremely athletic and quick, his size is what brings him down the ranks in the draft.

21. Cincinnati Bengals - Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State - The Bengals were great defensively, but average offensively in 2009. Carson Palmer looked comfortable in really only one game against Chicago. Since then, Cincinnati were struggling to make passing plays. One reason why this was happening was the lack of a second receiving threat to take the pressure off Chad Ochcocinco. Laveranues Coles was poor, as was every other receiving option. Bryant is extremely athletic and is almost a steal this late in the first round.

22. New England Patriots - Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida - The Patriots need to address their defence and they are another team that failed to get to the QB. Dunlap definitely has talent, but he has attitude problems which can drive teams away from him. He can often look disinterested and give up easily, which will give Belichick the challenge of transforming him. Dunlap will be a hit or miss; he has plenty to learn if he wants to make a good transition into the NFL.

23. Green Bay Packers - Charles Brown, OT, USC - Although Green Bay's line improved after its shocker first half of the season, it’s still is very shaky and needs some young talent. Green Bay's current tackle protecting the blind side is ageing in Clifton, so his replacement must be #1 priority. Brown does not have the size required in a lot of blocking schemes, so his weigh in will decide how early he goes. He definitely has the mobility and intelligence to be a leading tackle in the NFL, but his size will put his stocks down. He thrives in the zone-blocking scheme and will be the best choice for a Green Bay team looking to keep Rodgers on his feet.

24. Philadelphia Eagles - CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson - This will be the biggest steal of the draft and an opportunity the Eagles wouldn't want to miss. Spiller is the best back of the draft who is great in open-field. Spiller dominates when rushing, receiving and returning kicks, his only flaw is his blocking skills which would be needed in such a pass-heavy team like Philadelphia. Philadelphia have been criticized in the past for their 1-dimensional play and it has been part of the reason they haven't been able to go all the way after so many playoff trips.

25. Baltimore Ravens - Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame - Baltimore were able to run the ball as good as any team in the NFL, what let them down was the unreliability of their receivers in key periods of the game. Tate is the Percy Harvin-like receiver who is also a threat when returning punts. He is very strong and can really dominate games. This pick is also a toss-up between Tate and USC's Damian Williams who is also a very dominant receiver.

26. Arizona Cardinals - Brandon Graham, OLB, Michigan - Arizona's defence became more and more vulnerable as the season came to a close. They had 40+ put on them in straight weeks against Green Bay and New Orleans. Arizona lacked a pass-rushing linebacker and the best available at this point is Senior Bowl MVP Brandon Graham. Very few of Arizona's sacks in 2009 came from their linebackers, so Graham would fit well into this scheme, as he would be too small to play in the 4-3.

27. Dallas Cowboys - Mike Iupti, OG, Idaho - Iupti is the by far the best Offensive Guard in this draft class. Dallas' offensive line is ageing. Iupti is a natural run blocker, who can struggle when protecting the pass. Dallas will be thin this offseason at OG, so this is a good choice at this point in the draft.

28. San Diego Chargers - Donavan Warren, CB, Michigan - Cromartie hasn't shown much since his 2007 season and Jammer has been inconsistent. RB is a big need at San Diego, but they wouldn't want to take someone like Best a with his size when Sproles is their #1 back. Best is the only other 1st round back in this class, so the next hole would be depth at Corner. Warren is a great playmaker who can push for a starting spot in a San Diego secondary that is prone to big gains.

29. New York Jets - Damian Williams, WR, USC - The New York Jets are close to one of the most complete teams in the NFL. They have a top ranked defence and running game, one of the best offensive lines in the league, along with a good young QB for the future. Their biggest need now is a young possession receiver which they can find in Williams. Edwards drops too many while Cotchery and Keller are reliable options. Williams is a great route runner who was a star in a young USC offense. The best choice for a NYJ team that struggled on offense for most of the year.

30. Minnesota Vikings - Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee - Minnesota will be looking to keep their dominant defensive line in tact as the Williams force ages. Williams is a brick wall against the run which will be a big boost when nearing a transition stage on the defensive side of the ball and having Williams learn under Pat and Kev who have been dominating for so long.

31. Indianapolis Colts - Brandon Ghee, CB, Wake Forest - Part of the reason Indianapolis lost the Super Bowl is how much Brees picked apart their beaten secondary. Lacey and Powers performed very well in the absence of Jackson and Hayden, but still had their moments of coughing up big yardage to bigger receivers. Ghee is ready for the pros and has the speed and physicality to fit into the Colts system.

32. New Orleans Saints - Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missouri - The Saints don't have any major needs, but they lack big names at OLB and with Weatherspoon probably the best OLB in the draft, it will be hard for them to skip him over. He is a natural playmaker, which there is no shortage of in New Orleans, but his smart, football brain is very attractive for defensive co-ordinators.

The combine is in full swing with 16 of the 19 QBs deciding not to take part in the bench press including Bradford, Clausen, Tebow and McCoy. You'd all probably know that Tebow isn't participating in any passing drills. Dissappointing that so many are dropping out.

Bruce Campbell has looked to have had a massive combine. He got the best 40-time of the OT's with 4.85. Trent Williams also got under 5 seconds.

Tebow's been adjusting his throwing action if you've been watching ESPN over the last week Manning.

Minor tweaks as Tim's put it.

To be fair, ESPN hasn't talked that much football of late and when they have it's been all about the NFL Draft.

Bradford will probably go higher than Clausen in the draft as the top rated QB.

Can't argue much with the Eagles.
Need a solid young RB to back up Shady.

Will either be a RB or a lineman we will draft 1st round.

Quote :
Pittsburgh are lacking a physical run-stopping ILB

disagree

i dont think the steelers need a ILB that far up in the draft. harrison, woodley and farrior are still feared greatly as LBs. in the ILB department we have fox and timmons as back up so a replacement isnt needed just yet. On the other hand farrior is getting old but i think it is a bit soon to draft a new ILB just yet.

on the secondary issue, tyron carter and ryan clark are on the FA list at this stage... so we might be looking at a FS? also polamalu is getting older and more injury prone so maybe the steelers will look to draft a young S to get fresh blood in.

atm our secondary is pretty much stuffed. in particular william gay is shit and ike taylor has one year left on his contract. we need to draft a CB that will be able to actually keep up with receivers. the steelers drafted two CBs last draft but i dont know if they will be good enough to actually make the run on side.

So i would probably draft a CB or a S that is good enough to start almost straight away.

Sorry, just had a look at ESPN Australia's site and it said it is round 1 at 9:30. I thought it would be starting at about 1pm there, but its 4:30pm, so 9:30 here. I saw a couple of days ago that it was rounds 2-3, must have changed. Can't wait...

Heres my last Mock, anything people disagree/agree with?

1. St Louis Rams - Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma - After years of early first round picks, the 'safe' pick is no longer an option. The Rams must take a leader at QB and they will see the man worthy of this no.1 pick in Bradford. The only question mark on Bradford is his injury, which seems to be looking good according to doctors. The Rams have already stated that taking a defensive tackle at the no.1 pick is too much, so the possibility of Suh or McCoy being taken here is tiny.
2. Detroit Lions - Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State - This pick could go either way between Suh, McCoy or Okung. Stafford showed promising signs in a Detroit offense that provided little pass protection. The defensive line is also a big weakness in this team. I believe a franchise LT in Okung is the best pick here since Detroit haven't touched their offensive line since their 0-16 season. Okung is without a doubt the best OL in this draft class and it is no reach for him to be taken at no.2.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Ndamukong Suh, DT, and Stanford - Tampa have a struggling defensive line and their era of their dominating defence of the early 2000's is long gone. Restoring a leading defence would be the main priority for Tampa and with the possibility of Suh being available here; the opportunity would be too good to pass on. Suh has huge wraps on him after a great year for Stanford where his strength and athletics proved to be too much for most offensive lines in college. His presence alone could prove to have an immediate impact on this Tampa Bay defence.
4. Washington Redskins - Brian Bulaga, OT, Iowa - Washington have made some decent moves this offseason, but none of them will be able to bring in good results with the current O-line they have. This pick could go to a few other worthy OT's in this draft class, but I believe it is a certainty to go towards strengthening this O-line.
5. Kansas City Chiefs - Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma - This pick is also sure to be an OT. Pioli will be looking to improve the trenches since coming into KC, the only question will be wether the man will be Williams or not.
6. Seattle Seahawks - Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma - For Seattle, I reckon this pick will go for whoever slides in the top 5. McCoy is likely to slide with Suh being rated slightly higher on a lot of teams’ draft boards and KC and Washington leaning towards improvements on offense. Whether it is Berry or McCoy taken here, a difference will be made for this rebuilding Seattle defence.
7. Cleveland Browns - Eric Berry, S, Tennessee - Berry available at this point is the perfect scenario for Cleveland. Their ability to stop the pass has been terrible and there is a huge whole a Safety. Berry has proved himself to be a top 10 pick and the best choice at this point.
8. Oakland Raiders - Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland - Oakland are in need of a player like Campbell's on their roster. Their line has struggled for a long time and the Raiders have passed on opportunities to improve it in the past. This should change this year as Cable receives a more active role in recruitment, which will mean the o-line will be a priority.
9. Buffalo Bills - Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers - Buffalo's options are OT, Clausen or maybe even a possible bust in WR. I don't see any QB surviving with Buffalo's line and it must be addressed before a QB is taken. Buffalo are a long way from instant success, but along with most other teams in the top 10, they must start with their abysmal offensive line.
10. Jacksonville Jaguars - Rolando McLain, LB, Alabama - I can see Jacksonville sticking it out with Garrard for another year, despite the fact that he is 33 and Clausen is still available. McClain was one of the stars of that Alabama championship team and will add some much needed improvements to a struggling defensive unit in Jacksonville. I am completely ruling the 'marketing move' in Tebow in the first round, though I wouldn't be surprised if tiding up is on Jacksonville's mind to pickup someone like Berry.
11. Denver Broncos - Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State - This pick seems more than likely now, especially if McLain is off the board. With the departure of Marshall, Royal, who was poor when it came to receiving, will be the number 1 WR. I am sure Stokely is not favoured for this #2 WR spot and with McDaniel's recent comments on Bryant, I am close to certain this will happen if McLain isn't around. Tebow has also been favoured by McDaniel’s, but I see Bryant as a more suitable option.
12. Miami Dolphins - Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech - The Dolphins after picking up Brandon Marshall, can focus solely on defence. Wether Jason Taylor is signed or not, their priority needs to be a youngster like Derrick Morgan who is a top 15 pick.
13. San Francisco 49ers - Joe Haden, CB, Florida - The Niners have needs, but probably the biggest one in OL can't be filled without a pretty big reach at pick 13. That's why I believe they will address a minor issue in corner while they have the golden opportunity and probably the best player available in Haden.
14. Seattle Seahawks - C.J Spiller, RB, Clemson - This will be yet again another case of taking the best man available and C.J at 14 is almost as big a steal as McCoy with his stock rising. Seattle won't want Julius Jones as their starting back so Spiller is the best option. Clausen being taken here is also possible where he would be able to develop under Hasselbeck for a year.
15. New York Giants - Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee - the priority is without a doubt on the defensive side of NYG. I expect them to want to develop some dominance in the D-line like its 08 Super bowl win. Williams may not be an immediate success, but he is a top 15 calibre player who is great against the run. Williams' stock has risen since impressive post-season workouts.
16. Tennessee Titans - Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida - With Morgan off the board, Tennessee would look to the next best thing in a pass rusher in JPP. Other possibilities for this pick would be in the secondary which also struggled this year.
17. San Francisco 49ers - Earl Thomas, S, Texas - The secondary will be further improved in San Francisco with someone like Thomas, who's only flaw is his size. Thomas definitely is an impressive prospect, who San Francisco will jump at, with his top 20 ranking.
18. Pittsburgh Steelers - Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State - This pick will change depending on how Pittsburgh feels about Roethlisberger's suspension, with a trade on the cards. If so, Clausen is a possibility of landing here. If Big Ben is safe, Wilson will be the choice here with the struggling corners at Pittsburgh. At pick 18, he is no reach and a good pick if Roethlisberger is safe.
19. Atlanta Falcons - Sean Weather spoon, OLB, Missouri - Atlanta would have wanted Wilson or a possible Haden slide at this point in the draft and their weak corners. Although they picked up Dunta Robinson, the secondary is still a weakness. After Wilson, they will be forced to take their next need which is at linebacker. Weatherspoon is a great prospect at OLB and a good fit for Atlanta.
20. Houston Texans - Jared Odrick, DT, Penn State - Houston are another team with massive needs at corner, but like Atlanta, will find themselves having to pass on improving at corner with the lack of first round calibre players. Odrick is pushing for a first round selection and looks to be the possible pick with a fairly weak D-line in Houston.
21. Cincinnati Bengals - Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma - After picking up Antonio Bryant, a decent 2nd WR will no longer be a priority in the draft. TE is a weakness in this Bengals offense and Gresham is a good choice, his health is a problem.
22. New England Patriots - Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan - The Patriots lacked pressure on the QB in 09 and with Thomas on the outer; a pass rusher is a need. Graham is an impressive pass rusher who can also make the switch to OLB if needed.
23. Green Bay Packers - Charles Brown, OT, USC - Green Bay taking an OT is almost a sure thing. It was a huge weakness in 09 with Rodgers being sacked way too many times. With time Rodgers is able to be of the top 5 of the league. A pass protector like Brown is the best option for Green Bay.
24. Philadelphia Eagles - Mike Iupti, OG, Idaho - The Eagles have lost a QB, but are putting their future in Kolb's hands; they had a RB issue, and addressed that with a solid option in Bell. Their Linebackers are also weak, but Sims was a big pickup this week and shows that it probably won't be an addressed in the first round. That makes me take Iupti; the best OG in this class who will be in big favour of Reid's who loves big O-linemen.
25. Baltimore Ravens - Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers - The Baltimore defence is ageing. Lewis is on his last legs and Reed is hinting on retirement after this season. Corner is a worry for them and I wouldn't be surprised if they reach for someone like McCourty.
26. Arizona Cardinals - Everson Griffen, DE, USC - Griffen is a versatile defensive lineman who Arizona will be in need of for some natural pressure from the defensive line. Griffen may have character issues that have made his stock fall, but I feel that with most first round OT's gone, WR may be the only other possible pick.
27. Dallas Cowboys - Taylor Mays, S, USc - As many know, Mays made a huge mistake on not declaring for last year’s draft, as he was found out as a safety that couldn't cover. HE now finds himself nearing the second round, but I don't think Dallas, who is in need of a safety, will pass on him.
28. San Diego Chargers - Ryan Matthews, RB, Fresno State - The Chargers are rebuilding after getting rid of Cromartie, Tomlinson, Jackson and others after they went another season with no Super bowl appearance. This pick could go two ways IMO, either a big back like Matthews to compliment Sproles who may find it hard taking a starting spot with his size, or NT Terrence Cody who has weight issues and may be San Diego's replacement for Jackson.
29. New York Jets - Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida - It’s hard to find a weakness in this New York Jets team that made the AFC Championship. They have a #1 ranked defence, a good up and coming QB, a top rated running game and probably the best offensive lines in the league. I doubt how long DE Shaun Ellis will be around, so I have taken Dunlap. His work ethic has issues, but I believe defensive guru Rex Ryan has the ability to turn this around for the better.
30. Minnesota Vikings - Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame - Favre will make his decision soon enough, but in the mean time Minnesota won't want to be handing the future in the hands of Rosenfels and Jackson. Clausen will be able to build under Favre, if there. He may not get an immediate starting spot, which will be good for his transition.
31. Indianapolis Colts - Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida - Polian loves to draft offense in his first round and with Jeff Saturday soon to retire, Pouncey is likely to be at the top of their draft board. He is also very versatile in that he is able to play guard, which will make his transition much easier before he starts snapping to Peyton.
32. New Orleans Saints - Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas - The Saints will go with the best player available and Kindle is a man that could also help their needs at Linebacker depth. Kindle can also play in the defensive line.
