The NFL Draft is like the Super Bowl of the off season and in order to get through the time, I have created my own Mock Draft for your reading enjoyment. Please tell me how wrong I am in the comments section below because I don’t watch much college football and I generally only care about one NFL football team, the Chicago Bears. But here goes my first even mock draft.
1. Kansas City Chiefs
What to do with the #1 pick? With the rookie wage scale in place, a team can choose any position they want with the first pick of the draft. Since Andy Reid lost his job in Philadelphia because he didn’t have any offensive line depth, picking an Offensive Tackle would be the wisest move.
OT, Central Michigan
2. Jacksonville Jaguars
All I know is that Jacksonville has a long way to go and has many needs, so they will go with a quarterback for their pick.
QB, West Virginia
3. Oakland Raiders
Since Luke Joeckel is still on the board when it is Oakland’s turn, they might as well grab him.
OT, Texas A&M
4. Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles need Offensive Line help, and both top Tackles are now off the board. What to do with the #4 pick? They could use a young quarterback, but Geno Smith is gone. Is it time to draft a defensive player? I think it is.
5. Detroit Lions
Let’s see, will the Lions choose a wide receiver with the #5 pick? No, that was something that they would do when Matt Millen was the General Manager. Detroit has been consistent on bolstering both their defensive and offensive lines in the first round. You need to win the battle up front in the trenches and pressure the quarterback.
6. Cleveland Browns
Cleveland is just happy that they are not #1 or #2. They have needs all over the place. Can you draft a new team with the #6 pick? Why not pick a quarterback? That would be funny.
7. Arizona Cardinals
Good thing the Cardinals don’t need a quarterback anymore since both of the good ones are gone. Well, that is okay because they need Offensive Line help.
8. Buffalo Bills
Mario Williams was the best free agent signing ever.
9. New York Jets
I am so glad that I am not a New York Jets fan. Enough said.
G/C, North Carolina
10. Tennessee Titans
The Tennessee Titans used to be my favorite AFC team to watch on CBS when the Bears were not playing. Then, they fired Jeff Fisher. Now I watch them when they play the Bears. They need some help. Why not a defensive tackle?
11. San Diego Chargers
What is going on with Philip Rivers? I think they should trade him to a NFC North team so that Jay Cutler and him can get lippy again twice a year. Plus, the Chargers would get some draft picks. Win-Win situation. On a side note, they need a wide receiver.
WR, West Virginia
12. Miami Dolphins
Thank you Miami. These guys are the best. Enjoy the 3rd round pick, the Bears are enjoying Brandon Marshall. Maybe they should draft a receiver? Never mind. They bought one in free agency; Cornerback it is.
CB, Florida State
13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
What is going on in Tampa Bay? No, really, I don’t pay attention to them. Are they still in the NFC Central? They probably need a cornerback.
14. Carolina Panthers
I should have voted for Ron Rivera for the Madden cover. Oh well. Carolina will pick a Offensive Tackle.
OT, Florida State
15. New Orleans Saints
Can New Orleans draft a defensive coordinator? If not, then how about draft a defensive player? They need some pass rush.
16. St. Louis Rams
Jeff Fisher, do your thing. The Rams are going to pick the best football player available when it comes their turn.
