3.) Buffalo - Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M
4.) Cincinnati - AJ Green, WR, Georgia
5.) Arizona - Robert Quinn, OLB, North Carolina
6.) Cleveland - Marcel Dareus, DT, Alabama
7.) San Francisco - Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri
8.) Tennessee - Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
9.) Dallas - Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
10.) Washington - Stephen Paea, NT, Oregon State
11.) Houston - Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
12.) Minnesota - Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
13.) Detroit - Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi St.
14.) St. Louis - Cameron Jordan, DE, Cal
15.) Miami - Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
16.) Jacksonville - Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
17.) New England - Ryan Kerrigan, OLB, Purdue
18.) San Diego - Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State
19.) New York Giants - Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA
20.) Tampa Bay - JJ Watt, DE, Wisconsin
21.) Kansas City - Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
22.) Indianapolis - Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin
23.) Philadelphia - Nate Solder, OT, Colorado
24.) New Orleans - Christian Ballard, DT, Iowa
25.) Seattle - Anthony Castonzo, OT, Boston College
26.) Baltimore - Aldon Smith, OLB, Missouri
27.) Atlanta - Jonathan Baldwin, WR, Pitt
28.) New England - Jarvis Jenkins, DE, Clemson
29.) Chicago - Mike Pouncey, C, Florida
30.) New York Jets - Brooks Reed, OLB, Arizona
Looks good to me. I hope your right!
as much as i hope you are right, Jones is not falling to 21. IMO, he is the best WR in this years Draft. mostly all the mock drafts I have been watching has him going to the Rams.
I also do not believe that Jones or Green fall to #21. But nothing wrong with wishing for it.
My wish is for the Chiefs to take one of those OT's, Sherrod, Carimi, or Castonzo. Probably won't happen as taking a talented OT in the 1st round seems to be an abomination to the Chiefs brass.
Jones may not fall to 21, but again I cite Dez Bryant last year. I realize he had some character issues, but in general teams are hesitant to take WRs early. It is a difficult position to evaluate for a scout.
The way this mock draft played out, I can't really argue too heavily against any of the picks. It's very defensive heavy, but there seems to be a lot of talent this year at DE/OLB.
That was true in 2010 regarding Bryant. But step back one year & you see DHB going to Oakland at #7 and Crabtree going at #10, so it's not every year that teams are hesitant to take WR's early. And Green and Jones are better prospects than those two. Plus, if Bryant did not have character issues, he would've gone much higher.

That is afact d end at 21. 2nd pick. D tackle Muhammad wilckerson. Temple. This kid can start from day one and has the highest ceiling in the draft. He can be as good as Sue in 3yrs. Check him outout
I think that Arizona will pick up Blaine Gabbert, I just think their biggest need is a QB
I agree NT is a need, but I'm not sold on 2 Defensive players with the 1st two picks. The O-Line does need help & that may be the strength of the draft when it comes time to pick #21. OT's Carimi, Castonzo, and Sherrod could all still be on the board. I really believe the top WR's will be gone. Many people want SOLB at #21, but it's hard to ignore that they passed on Curry in 2009 & they do have Studebaker, Cory Greenwood, and Sheffield has been given a clean bill of health to play again.
