    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.

    You know you are right. WR is one position that nearly every year seems to slip further from where they are projected. Seems like the #1 ranked is usually on but that 2nd rated seems to always slip.

    Dez Bryant, Micheal Crabtree, DeSean Jackson, Percy Harvin etc.

    I hope he falls to us!

    I think we were under the assumption in this mock also that teams would draft based on "need", not on "best player available." Of course, that isn't the case all the time.

    Someone else mentioned Patrick Peterson slipping in this mock. I agree that he will probably go higher, but can't really argue against the guys that are gone before him b/c each of these teams have a need and get a solid player to fill that need.

    Agreed.

    Just because a player is rated #10 overall doesn't mean that lets say the Cowboys because they have pick 10 will select them. They may have the position filled already and look to a best available need.

    Denver goes CB
    They don't even have a starting cb right now
    Peterson goes #2

    SF Looks to sign veteran QB
    It"s 2 high to select any QB

    Paea is a favorite of yours
    He does"nt go that high- several other DT rated higher and with Shanahan they may trade down or surprise everyone and select Locker this high. He's a Shanahan QB for sure

    Sherrod first OT selected.
    It's not going to happen he's aRT only(possibly G)

    Julio Jones. I'ld take that. Could fall easily. Interviews and his workout at the combine will not increase his stock. Drops way to many balls. Questions if he can get off the line of scrimmage.

    I would take Solderat #21 with players still available.

    31)Pitts- Tyron Smith(OT)
    32)GB- Cory Liuget-DT
