Dolphins Gab Complete NFL Mock Draft 1.0

#1 Detroit Lions: Jason Smith OT. The Lions will pass on Matthew Stafford because they simply need to build a line first, so the quarterback can run the offense.

#2 St. Louis Rams: Eugene Monroe OT. The Rams desperately need depth at this position, with their top tackle Alex Barron set for free-agency next year. If the Lions do not take Smith, look for Smith to be picked up right away.

#3 Kansas City Chiefs: Aaron Curry OLB. If the Chiefs stay with this pick, look for them to add a pass rusher. The Chiefs finished last in the league in sacks, and would like to add a pass rusher. If the Chiefs trade down, they could select either Texas’ Brian Orakpo, or Florida State’s Everette Brown. Either one would be a solid pick, but if the Chiefs stay put at #3, they will pick Curry.

#4 Seattle Seahawks: Brian Orakpo DE. The Seahawks need someone to step in to fill the hole that Julian Peterson left.

#5 Cleveland Browns: Everette Brown DE. The Browns need someone to draw away double teams from their huge tackles. Brown could also switch from linebacker to defensive end from time to time to try and create mismatches.

#6 Cinncinatti Bengals: B.J. Raji DT. Bengals can build their horrid pass rush around this HUGE tank.

#7 Oakland Raiders: Michael Crabtree WR. The leading receiver for the Raiders only caught 22 passes. If Crabtree is still on the board, he would make an instant impact, and provide relief for borderline bust JaMarcus Russell.

#8 Jacksonville Jaguars: Jeremy Maclin WR. Not only is he a stud receiver, but he also can take back kickoffs and punts. He is an explosive guy that would bring ticket sales up, and even quarterback David Garrard is calling for a receiver.

#9 Green Bay Packers: Andre Smith OT.
Have no other choice here with both Smith and Monroe long gone. They need to start rebuilding the trenches if they want budding quarterback Aaron Rodgers to succeed.

#10 San Fransisco 49ers: Mark Sanchez QB. The 49ers need a definite quarterback that can lead the team. It’s time to give up on Alex Smith, and get a fresh start with Sanchez. He is mobile and can make all the throws. Can go nowhere but up with only one year starting at USC. (Look what Matt Cassel did with no starts since high school!)

#11 Buffalo Bills: Aaron Maybin DE. The Bills need depth after their top two defensive ends went down last year. Maybin could step in and contribute right away and has a little bit of chemistry with linebacker Paul Posluzny.

#12 Denver Broncos: Matthew Stafford QB: Kyle Orton was only a temporary starting option at best, and if Stafford is there, the Broncos will not hesitate to scoop him up and groom him as the next quarterback of the Denver Broncos.

#13 Washington Redskins: Rey Mauluga ILB. Mauluga would provide the fire that the front seven is missing. He also would provide the depth that this organization needs with the release of both Marcus Washington and Jason Taylor.

#14 New Orleans Saints: Brian Cushing OLB. Would fit in nicely in the Saints 4-3 defense. The Saints only have 1 pick in the first day, so they need to make an impact with that selection. Cushing is an explosive player that would help protect Jonathan Vilma.

#15 Houston Texans: Larry English DE/OLB. Would bring versatility. Can play both the defensive end and outside linebacker spots. It just so turns out that the Texans need both. English would be the best option that would fill their top two needs with one pick.

#16 San Diego Chargers: Malcolm Jenkins CB/S. The Chargers now need depth in their secondary after a horrid season last year. Jenkins is a versatile player with size and is a polished player.

#17 New York Jets:Josh Freeman QB. Before the Jets go out and draft a stud receiver, they need to get a guy to throw the ball to him. That guy just so happens to be Freeman, who will probably still be on the board with both Stafford and Sanchez picked later then they thought. He is a risk that the Jets will have to take if they are willing to make the play-offs this year.

#18 Denver Broncos: Tyson Jackson DE. The Broncos need a pass rusher this year as well as half the teams in the league. They will be looking to acquire either a nose tackle or a defensive end. Jackson is a top-tier player, and the Broncos can always get a nose tackle in the 2nd or 3rd rounds.

#19 Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Peria Jerry DT. The Bucs need someone to help out the pass rush and help their run game as well. Jerry would fill that gaping hole that lays at the DT position. Look for the Bucs to draft Derrick Brooks replacement in the 2nd round.

#20 Detroit Lions: Fili Moala DT. The Lions need a run stuffer to add to their depth chart. Moala is a good stop gap player who will be a solid player in the league for a long time to come. If the Lions do not pick a DT, then look for a linebacker to be heading to Detroit.

#21 Philadelphia Eagles: Michael Oher OT. With the departure of Tra Thomas and Jon Runyan, the Eagles need to start looking to fill the gaps in the trenches again. Oher would be a solid pick, but would likely not draw many cheers from the fans.

#22 Minnesota Vikings: Darrius Heyward-Bey WR.
The Vikings now need a top-tier receiver to compliment their awesome running game. Heyward-Bey is a raw talent, but posted the fastest 40 time in the Combine. Can dominate when he wants to.

#23 New England Patriots: Clay Matthews OLB. The Patriots linebackers are not getting any younger, and with the loss of Mike Vrabel, the addition of a new, young “backer” is considered a priority.

#24 Atlanta Falcons: Louis Delmas S. The Falcons need to fill the hole that Lawyer Milloy left. Delmas is a solid player. The Falcons do not have many holes on offense, but need to address just about every position on the defensive side of the ball.

#25 Miami Dolphins: Hakeem Nicks WR. The Dolphins need a big time receiver/playmaker. Bill Parcells traveled to see this guy workout, and was impressed. The guy catches everything in sight, and is a tall threat that possesses the speed to break away from cornerbacks in the open field.

#26 Baltimore Ravens: Kenny Britt WR. The Ravens need a big time receiver just a little bit more badly than a starting OT.

#27 Indianapolis Colts: Percy Harvin WR. The Colts need to address the loss of Marvin Harrison. As long as Peyton Manning is still playing, look for the Colts Front Office to do everything in its power to give him all of the offensive weapons that he needs.

#28 Philadelphia Eagles: Brandon Pettigrew TE. The Eagles need a big tight end to draw some attention off of their emerging receivers. Pettrigrew can both block and catch.

#29 New York Giants: Eben Britton OT. Britton would bring depth to this already solid position. The Giants can afford to wait until the 2nd round to get a receiver. They may trade up to get the receiver that they want though. Brandon Tate would be a 2nd round possibility.

#30 Tennessee Titans: Alphonso Smith CB. The Titans need to start grooming a cornerback for the future with starter Nick Harper aging. Smith can step in right away and contribute as well.

#31 Arizona Cardinals: Chris “Beanie” Wells RB.
The Cardinals need to add that crucial second back to help out Tim Hightower. Wells is just too good to pass up at #31.

#32 Pittsburgh Steelers: Alex Mack C/G. Mack can play both center and guard. The Steelers showed that down the road they will need a guy with Mack’s versatility to step in right away and contribute in their title defense. The Steelers really let down Ben Roethlisberger last year. It seemed that he was always on the run.
