With the first pick of the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Oakland Raiders select...
JaMarcus Russell - QB/LSU
The Raiders need help in a lot of areas but the best place to start is with a franchise quarterback and Russell has all the tools to be just that. There are other players worthy of the first pick as well, but it's hard to pass on a quarterback with so much potential.
Russell has great size and will likely have the strongest arm in the NFL the moment he signs on the dotted line. He has the accuracy to fit balls between defenders and the range to throw one beautiful deep ball. He is a good scrambler and throws well on the run. He's a tough kid who plays well under pressure and should develope into a leader at the next level.
With the 2nd pick of the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Detroit Lions select
Calvin Johnson-WR/Georgia Tech
The Lions have alot of needs and WR isn't a big one for the Lions. Plus the Lions have spent three first round picks on WR's in the past four drafts. But there is noway you can pass on the best overall prospect in this years draft and thats the reason for the pick.
Calvin Johnson has the size and the speed to dominate the NFL. He also has very good hands and runs sharp/precise routes. Is big and tough to tackle. Plus has a great attitude and work ethic. He is the anti-T.O. The only negative on Johnson could be his blocking which he has the size to be a very good blocker but must work harder at it.
With the third pick of the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Cleveland Browns select:
HT: 6'1" WT: 217
The Browns have beefed up their OL through FA's. Their other need are DL, QB and RB. I'm not sold on Quinn and between Frye and Anderson, they can make the QB position work. They signed J. Lewis to a 1 year contract so that right there shows he's not their answer in the backfield. Peterson is a rare gifted athlete who will be around for a long time.
He has a rare combination of power and speed for a running back. He is a physical player who would rather hit, than be hit. His lower body strength and physical style allow him to power through arm tackles on the second level. Has the ability to be a true workhorse and seems to get better as the game goes on.
His blend of speed and quickness is at an elite level for a big back. He seems to take the handoff already at full speed, quickly hitting the hole with authority. His feet and quickness are outstanding at his size, allowing him to change directions quickly either in the backfield or in the open field. When he does change directions, he can get back to full speed quickly with his excellent burst and acceleration.
His vision may be his best attribute. As fast as he is, his eyes may be even faster. He can see the holes before they open, and he can read and react to cutback lanes or find opportunities to bounce it outside. He is a leader by example, who plays hurt and plays with passion.
With the 4th pick of the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Tampa Bay Bucs Select:
Position: Defensive End
Has that sudden burst needed to surprise a lethargic blocker coming off the snap and also hows the range and pursuit quickness to chase down ball carriers turning the corner as well as demonstrating good balance and body control working through trash. Gaines displays good reverse spin moves to apply backside pressure and has the valid foot quickness and backpedal to drop back in zone coverage … Needs to add bulk, but compensates by utilizing his quickness to defeat blocks, fight pressure and work back to the ball and he Has the explosive burst to close on the quarterback once he clears the line of scrimmage. Phenominal hand movement, his arms are moving all the time and with a huge height advantage and leaping ability to obstruct the quarterback's passing view, and times his leaps well to bat down a good share of passes at the line of scrimmage.
I chose him because the Bucs need to beef up their defense. Gaines Adams would not be a bad addition to the line, especially with White going into free agency and Rice getting older.
With the fifth pick of the 2007 SA Mock Draft the Arizona Cardinals select:
Joe Thomas OT/Wisconsin
HT: 6-7 WT:310
Thomas who on some websited is listed as 6-8 is a premier OL. He is a very good run blocker who does a good job of finishing his blocks, but he is an even better blindside pass protector. His quick feet, good balance, and near flawless technique make him an ideal left tackle prospect. Thomas has all of the intangibles you could want from a player on your team. He is an extremely hard worker who is constantly trying to improve his game. He is an intelligent player who has been an honor student everywhere he has been and he is a person of impeccable character.
At pick number 5, this future superstar is there for a team with a DESPERATE need for an offensive line upgrade...they cannot and will not pass on him, in fact, coach whiz may have pissed his pants when he found out that Thomas was still there, especially with high demand for top offensive lineman and the struggling olines that all picked 1-4.....they are very happy to have such a prospect fall to them, he will be a star in an up and coming franchise for years to come.
With the Sixth Pick The Washington Redskins Select:
Jamaal Anderson DE Arkansas
the redskins need a pass rusher and a good run stopper, anderson will provide that for them here, if gaines adams is here he's their pick, but since he went earlier, they get the second best DE in the draft
Has great size with a large frame and long arms...A smooth athlete with excellent agility...Strong and powerful...Terrific pass rusher who can be effective with either a bull-rush or finesse moves...Does a quality job versus the run...Motor runs non-stop...Very good in pursuit and has a burst to close...Is versatile and could play a number of different roles depending on the scheme he is in...Has a ton of upside.
With the 7th pick the Minnesota Vikings select
With Adams and Anderson off the board and the fact Darren Sharper is getting up there in age is the reason I made Landry the pick. I think DE is a bigger need but no DE left are worth the 7th overall pick.
Landry excels in all types of coverage. He has great run/pass recognition and does not get fooled by play-action fakes or misdirection plays. Has the elite speed and explosive closing burst to finish. Delivers violent hits. Gets outside quickly to make interceptions or break up passes. Gets physical with receivers when going for the ball. Landry is also solid in run support. The bottom line Landry is not only the best safety in this draft but the best DB. He has the physical tools plus great instincts, toughness and competitive-ness to be a great NFL player.
with the 8th pick the falcons select
Adam Carriker DE 6-6 292
Has outstanding size and a big frame...Has tremendous strength and is extremely powerful...Holds his ground and is exceptional against the run...Has a motor that never stops...Solid tackler...Instinctive and pursues well...Is technically sound and uses his hands well...Is versatile and could play a number of different roles and positions...Very productive...Tough guy and a hard worker with great intangibles.
Well since Vick sucks, they will obviously address the defense, Brady Quinn would be to good of a pick for all there 1st round WRs. Carriker can immediately fill the void left by Kerney, hes got good size and is very powerful, will be a force against the run and can pressure the QB
Miami Dolphins select Brady Quinn QB Notre Dame
the dolphins seem to be pretty set on defense, they could up grade the secondary, but that could be addressed in the second round, the dolphins main weakness is the offense, they still have culpepper, but there's still questions if he'll ever be the same again, drafting quinn here would give them their future at qb, he's also the most ready qb to come out and start right away just in case culpepper still sucks because he played in a pro type system
Has prototypical size...Hard worker and a leader with elite intangibles...Smart and does not make many mistakes with the ball...Very strong and does not go down easily...Arm strength is excellent...Is mechanically and technically sound...A good athlete who can move in the pocket and scramble a bit...Has a lot of experience against top-notch competition...Knows how to read a defense and has been well schooled in a pro-style offense by a noted quarterback guru...Is very tough and durable and has never missed any action despite taking quite a beating at times during his career...A clutch player who has come through big in tough situations and plays his best when the game is on the line...Is accustomed to the spotlight.
