    Mel Kipers initial mock draft

    MOCK DRAFT: Mel Kiper's Initial First-Round Projection | Jan. 25

    This initial projection is based on what I've identified as key need areas for each team.

    There are 17 underclassmen among my projections for the first 32 picks of the 2007 NFL draft, including two of the top three. LSU junior quarterback JaMarcus Russell gets the nod as the first overall pick, and North Carolina State defensive tackle Tank Tyler rounds out my first-round projections as the No. 32 overall selection to Indianapolis.

    1. Oakland Raiders: *JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU
    2. Detroit Lions: Joe Thomas, OT, Wisconsin
    3 or 4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: *Calvin Johnson, WR, Georgia Tech
    4 or 3. Cleveland Browns: Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame
    5. Arizona Cardinals: *Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas
    6. Washington Redskins: *Alan Branch, DT, Michigan
    7. Minnesota Vikings: Gaines Adams, DE, Clemson
    8. Houston Texans: *Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma
    9. Miami Dolphins: *Ted Ginn, Jr., WR, Ohio St.
    10. Atlanta Falcons: LaRon Landry, S, LSU
    11. San Francisco 49ers: *Reggie Nelson, DB, Florida
    12. Buffalo Bills: Leon Hall, CB, Michigan
    13. St. Louis Rams: *Charles Johnson, DE, Georgia
    14. Carolina Panthers: Levi Brown, OT, Penn St.
    15. Pittsburgh Steelers: *Jarvis Moss, DE, Florida
    16. Green Bay Packers: *Marshawn Lynch, RB, California
    17. Jacksonville Jaguars: *Sidney Rice, WR, South Carolina
    18. Cincinnati Bengals: Amobi Okoye, DT, Louisville
    19. Tennessee Titans: *Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC
    20. New York Giants: *Lawrence Timmons, LB, Florida St.
    21. Denver Broncos: Adam Carriker, DE, Nebraska
    22. Dallas Cowboys: *Robert Meachem, WR, Tennessee
    23. Kansas City Chiefs: Tony Ugoh, OT, Arkansas
    24. New England Patriots (from Seattle): *Darrelle Revis, CB, Pittsburgh
    25. New York Jets: Dwayne Bowe, WR, LSU
    26. Philadelphia Eagles: Aaron Ross, CB, Texas
    27. New Orleans Saints: Daymeion Hughes, CB, California
    28. New England Patriots: *Anthony Gonzalez, WR, Ohio St.
    29. Baltimore Ravens: Anthony Spencer, DE, Purdue
    30. San Diego Chargers: Patrick Willis, LB, Mississippi
    31. Chicago Bears: *Greg Olsen, TE, Miami (Fla)
    32. Indianapolis Colts: Tank Tyler, DT, NC St.
    Again I put no stock in mock drafts. Nobody outside of the HC and GM knows what the draft strategy will be. Specially when you have a brand new HC who has never taken such an active role in a draft before. Only thing I don't like in this draft is Okoye going to the Bungels. I wouldn't mind if Jarvis Moss was the Steelers #1 but I don't want Okoye going to a division rival! I would take Okoye before Moss. If Okoye is already off the board then Moss would be a fine pick but I would be upset if we passed Okoye for Moss!

    hmmm... defensive end???? Makes you think Tomlin will want to implement the 4-3 at some point but I feel as long as Lebeau is around it will be a 3-4.

    I am basing my opinion off of the fact that there was nobody at the senior bowl who was more of a disruptive force in the practices leading up to the game or in the game itself! Jarvis Moss played in that game and was a non-factor. I am not saying that Jarvis is no good. The South team in general had a bad showing on both sides of the ball. But if I had to choose based on who I think will be a more dominant force in the NFL........its Okoye! IMO
