...hmy: The First Mock for 07 (that I've seen) http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/sub/mockdraft.html 1. BUFFALO BILLS - BRADY QUINN QB | Notre Dame | Scouting Report After jettisoning a number of veterans it would appear that the Bills are now in rebuilding mold but they still lack a top signal caller. Former first round pick J.P. Losman was never really given much of an opportunity and has seemingly fallen out of favor while nobody in their right mind would mistake Kelly Holcomb or Craig Nall for long-term options. Brady Quinn has everything you look for in a quarterback physically and then when you factor in the pedigree of having been tutored by Charlie Weis it's no wonder why he's widely considered to be the front-runner for the #1 overall pick in '07. A Carson Palmer clone, Quinn is a franchise quarterback. 2. SAN FRANCISCO 49'ERS - CALVIN JOHNSON WR | Georgia Tech | Scouting Report Slowly but surely the Niners are upgrading their overall talent level but they still lack a true #1 wide receiver. Antonio Bryant was brought in and he's a solid starter but there is very little to get excited about beyond him so this pick would make a ton of sense. A physical marvel with a rare blend of size, speed and athleticism, Johnson is one of the best wideout prospects to come along in years and could be a better version of Andre Johnson. Due to the program he plays for and average quarterback play Johnson doesn't get a lot of attention but make no mistake about it he is an elite pro prospect and will go very high whether it is in 2007 or 2008. *** CALVIN... :icon_sad: ....gawd CALVIN & VD.... :icon_eek: 3. NEW YORK JETS - ADRIAN PETERSON RB | Oklahoma | Scouting Report Father time is finally catching up with Curtis Martin so the Jets are going to have to bring in a top running back in the near future. After a phenomenal freshman campaign Peterson battled injuries as a sophomore but still came through with a solid campaign. Right now durability is the only big question mark with Peterson but if he can stay healthy he'll be an elite prospect and potentially one of the best running backs the draft has produced in a very long time. With a tremendous blend of size, speed and power Peterson has evoked comparisons to Eric Dickerson so if he has the junior season he's capable of you can pencil him into the Top 3 overall. 4. HOUSTON TEXANS - JOE THOMAS OT | Wisconsin | Scouting Report Since their inception the Texans have been in search of a premier left tackle but after failed experiments with the likes of Tony Boselli, Chester Pitts and Seth Wand they've come up empty to this point. That would all change with Thomas though, who had it not been for a knee injury in the Badgers bowl game while playing defensive end would likely have come out early and been a top 10-15 overall pick in 2006. A great athlete for the position with ideal size and nimble feet, Thomas is an excellent all-around blocker who would finally solidify the Houston offensive line. Depending on which underclassmen come out Thomas could even go a bit earlier. 5. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS - PAUL POSLUSZNY OLB | Penn St. | Scouting Report It's not an exaggeration to say that the Saints have been in search of a stud linebacker for a good decade and despite using first day picks on the likes of Sedrick Hodge, James Allen, Courtney Watson and Alfred Fincher the position is still arguably the weakest on the team. New Orleans was all set to take A.J. Hawk at #2 overall this year until Reggie Bush fell into their laps but they could get another shot at an impact 'backer from the Big Ten in Paul Posluszny. Many have called "Puz" one of the best, if not the best, linebacker the Nittany Lions have produced which is saying something when you consider the school has been tabbed "Linebacker U". 6. OAKLAND RAIDERS - BRIAN BROHM QB | Louisville | Scouting Report Despite not having a top signal caller on their roster the Raiders opted to pass on Matt Leinart in the '06 Draft, a move that could come back and haunt them. With that in mind the team is still in need of an upgrade over Aaron Brooks so they take this opportunity to select Brian Brohm, a prolific passer dating back to his high school days. Many Raider fans would point out that Andrew Walter is their quarterback of the future but he has yet to earn that title. Al Davis is known to be a big fan of Louisville coach Bobby Petrino so why not bring in his star pupil, who figures to be at the helm of one of the most explosive offenses in the entire nation. 7. GREEN BAY PACKERS - DWAYNE JARRETT WR | USC | Scouting Report The receiving corps in Green Bay have been in a state of disarray for years and the trade of Javon Walker now leaves the team with the aging Donald Driver as their only proven commodity at the position. Whether it is Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers at the helm in 2007 they are going to need somebody to throw to so why not bring in Jarrett, who could end up being everything Mike Williams was supposed to be. A prolific receiver since his true freshman year with the Trojans, Jarrett has outstanding size and a knack for getting in the end zone, two skills that the Packers could use. The key for Jarrett will be his forty time but if he runs well he'll go early. 8. DETROIT LIONS - DREW STANTON QB | Michigan St. | Scouting Report After four tumultuous seasons the Joey Harrington error, I mean era, is officially over in Motown. It looks like Jon Kitna will start the season for the Lions but he is nothing more than a stop-gap solution which means they are going to have to bring in a top young signal caller sooner rather than later. Drew Stanton is a local guy who shows flashes of brilliance and really brings a gunslinger's mentality to the quarterback position so Mike Martz should be able to coach him up. Matt Millen might be a little gun-shy about using another high pick on a quarterback but unless the team makes major strides this upcoming season he probably won't be around. 9. ST. LOUIS RAMS - QUENTIN MOSES DE | Georgia | Scouting Report For years now Leonard Little has been one of the best in the business when it comes to rushing the passer but he isn't getting any younger and the team has yet to adequately replace Grant Wistrom on the other side. Tony Hargrove struggled in 2005 and this will likely be a make or break year for him so if he should falter they will need a replacement. Quentin Moses may be a bit undersized but he's an outstanding athlete who even saw some action on the Bulldogs basketball team. One of the top sack artists in the country, Moses will go early and carry on a strong recent tradition of Georgia sending top defensive line prospects to the pro ranks. 10. TENNESSEE TITANS - SAM BAKER OT | USC | Scouting Report A strong offensive line has been a signature of the Tennessee franchise in recent years and if they want to continue that tradition they'll need an infusion of talent soon. After a decade of service Brad Hopkins is no longer with the team and despite struggling at times as a rookie the Titans will move Michael Roos to the left side to replace him. Even if that experiment is a success however they could still need some help at the position which is where Baker would come in. Arguably the best player on a very talented Trojan offensive line last year, Baker will now protect the blind side of his quarterback in '06 after blocking for lefty Matt Leinart early in his career.
