Mock Draft

Spirited mock debate gives hints at how first round could unfold

NEW YORK -- NFL Network analysts Marshall Faulk, Brian Billick, Michael Irvin, Steve Mariucci and Charles Davis, as well as host Rich Eisen, gathered at Le Parker Meridien, a luxury hotel in Manhattan, Tuesday evening and participated in a mock draft roundtable.

The rules were simple: 60 seconds between picks. No trades.

Maybe next year, in the third annual NFL Network Mock Draft, they should institute a third rule and call it Marshall's Law: No first-round picks outside Mike Mayock's top 100.

Among Faulk's six first-round selections was Matt Tennant, and since you asked, he's a center from Boston College who Faulk tabbed for the Indianapolis Colts at Pick No. 31.

Maybe it was payback for Bill Polian, who traded Faulk to St. Louis in 1999 for second- and fifth-round picks and used his first-rounder that year on Faulk's replacement, Edgerrin James.

Or maybe Faulk was just feeling a little adventurous on this particular day.

Judge for yourself: He picked Dez Bryant for the Browns at No. 7 (higher than most mocks, although Mayock loved the pick), Taylor Mays for the Falcons at No. 19 ("I've never seen a player that scares people more," said Billick), Patrick Robinson for the Ravens at 25 (see Bryant), and Tennant.

It was a spirited debate, like mock drafts should be. Who cares if Tennant belongs in the first, third or seventh round. Faulk tried to get into the head of Polian, assessed Indianapolis' needs, made the pick, and took his medicine from Mayock, who played moderator during the mock. History will judge it long after Colts fans start booing it.

Make sure you watch the video above to get a behind-the-scenes look at the mock draft, including player reactions after being picked.

Now, without further delay, the full results of the second annual NFL Network Mock Draft:

Marshall Faulk: "We have a deal in place, he already has the playbook. We need a quarterback, so we're taking Sam Bradford. There are many ways to go, but when you look at the city of St. Louis, you must provide your city and your team a chance and give them hope. And I believe Sam Bradford gives this organization hope."

Instant analysis ...

 

Irvin: "You've got a defensive line coach in Steve Spagnuolo as head coach, and a beast in this draft at defensive tackle. Why not go with Ndamukong Suh and start with your defensive line? This guy's a quarterback on the defense. You don't see these kind of guys. You don't see guys who have this temperament on defense."

Faulk: "There's not a defensive tackle who is going to put people in the stands and get the rest of your team inspired."

Irvin: "A defensive team can get better faster than an offensive team. You put guys around him and they start playing with energy. It would take years with Bradford."

Mayock: "The prevailing thought in the NFL is that you have to build with a franchise quarterback. If he's on the board, you have to take him. If he's available in the draft and you don't have one, you can't win the Super Bowl. The only one who did is Brian Billick with Trent Dilfer. But you have to take the quarterback."

Brian Billick: "I'm going to go with Ndamukong Suh, because you build from the inside out on defense. I have the luxury of getting my quarterback in Matthew Stafford last year. It turns out fate has dealt me a good hand. I do like Gerald McCoy a lot. But Suh has the special presence inside. You could flip a coin between Suh and McCoy. If I'm Jim Schwartz, a defensive guy, I go defense. What Suh can do to help my defense is more than what a tackle could do to protect Stafford."

Instant analysis ...

 

Mayock: "I love the pick."

Davis: "Suh is exactly what Schwartz has always said he's been looking for."

Mayock: "If you look at the statistics on Kyle Vanden Bosch, he was at his best playing next to Albert Haynesworth. Why sign him if you're not going to put Suh next to him? So far, I think the best two players are off the board."

Mayock: "I think this one's a no-brainer. They have a ton of issues, but you don't have a three-technique and this is the best guy on the board. So far I think the best three players are off the board."

Rich Eisen: "I think this is the first spot we hear a lot of trade talk. This is the first hot spot where a team might come up and the Redskins could trade down. But, with that being said, I'm hearing Trent Williams more often in this spot than Russell Okung. I'm going with Williams."

Instant analysis ...

 

Mayock: "That's an interesting pick. Okung and Williams are two premier tackles in the draft. Williams has some issues attached to him in terms of his work ethic. But he had a dominating year this year followed by an even better postseason."

Billick: "At the end of the day you go with talent, but Mike Shanahan has been making a lot about changing the culture in Washington. Unless there's a world of difference in how you rate them, I would lean toward Okung to verify the new message."

Mayock: "Okung is tops on most people's boards at tackle. The Redskins will be a zone-run scheme, and because Williams is a slightly better athlete, he should fit their scheme. But the bottom line is you still have to protect your quarterback. I think Okung does that as well as Williams, or better. This is a really intriguing pick here."

Steve Mariucci: "The Chiefs put a lot of money into Matt Cassel, but didn't protect him very well. They need to shore up their offensive line, and they can in this draft. The choice is between Russell Okung and Bryan Bulaga. The safer pick is Okung and that gives them some flexibility. They've got to go with the tackle to protect the quarterback. Cassel is not the most mobile guy, so they've got to keep him upright."

Instant analysis ...

 

Mayock: "There are two issues here. One, you need a safety and there's still a good one here in Eric Berry; and two, what if the Redskins take Okung? Do you take Bryan Bulaga or Berry? Scott Pioli values character, and I don't think he would go Trent Williams. So would he take the less-athletic Bulaga or the safety?"

Charles Davis: "Seattle, with two first-round picks, would love to come out of it with a running back and a left tackle, and a safety wouldn't be bad, either. I'm going with Eric Berry. He'll go with Jordan Babineaux and make an impact. C.J. Spiller would be my next pick. In my mind, Bryan Bulaga is a step below the elite guys, athletically. Would I be getting a true left tackle, or a guy that has to move to right tackle or guard? At this spot, I would have to be convinced I found my left tackle for the next 10 years."

Instant analysis ...

 

Mayock: "Trent Williams would be gone in a heartbeat if he made it down to Seattle. I'm not sure that safety is as high on the Seahawks' list of needs as a tackle and playmaker. Seattle has to also be thinking Dez Bryant at this spot."

Davis: "Berry is the highest-rated player on my board right now."

Mayock: "Marshall, this is intriguing. You can go in a lot of different directions. The Browns may want to move up here. But what would you do? I think Cleveland is a wild card for Jimmy Clausen, but the player they want, Berry, is out. Which way do they go here?"

Marshall Faulk: "I already think they want to move back. I don't like Clausen at 7, I can probably ride with Jake Delhomme. I really get to evaluate my talent with the veteran quarterback. At running back, we have a young kid, Jerome Harrison, who really showed potential, showed he can carry the load. I like a receiver here, a guy who can really provide a nice target for the deep ball, so you don't have to get a lot of yards to score, I'm going with Dez Byrant."

Instant analysis ...

 

Mayock: "Dez Bryant! I like that. He's among a group of wild cards at this spot. Clausen and Bryant have to be on Cleveland's minds, because Berry will be gone. That's a really intriguing pick. Tom Heckert and Mike Holmgren are making the calls in that building right now. They signed a lot of players in the offseason so they could be more free at their pick."

Brian Billick: "Everyone says Bruce Campbell, because of his athleticism and measurables, makes sense here. And why take a player at 39 that I can take at No. 8? But I'm going to help them here a little bit. The way the board has fallen, I could also see Joe Haden and C.J. Spiller here, as well as Bulaga. But I tell you what, because we talked about the freakish athlete in Campbell, if the coaches and the scouts won't let Al Davis take him, then I'll take Jason Pierre-Paul, because I can't pass up another freakish athlete."

Instant analysis ...

 

Mayock: "That's an intruiging pick. He's been in the back of my mind for Oakland. They have a ton of cash tied up in Richard Seymour. It makes sense for what they do. Others guys who seem to fit their profile might be Taylor Mays or Spiller."

Billick: "You could make a case to throw Spiller in their mix of backs. He's a rotation type guy and you use him on returns. With the M.O. of Al Davis, you could see the Raiders going with a big-impact Spiller pick, too."

Michael Irvin: "With Chan Gailey as the head coach and understanding the system he runs -- not liking the system, but understanding the system -- I would go with the quarterback, Jimmy Clausen."

Instant analysis ...

 

Davis: "He's a different type of guy than Chan likes to work with. He likes 'move' guys. The other part of it is that with their offensive line struggles, you've still got Bulaga there, and they need one, but I understand the pick."

Irvin: "I think Clausen would do well. Chan would have an opportunity to have his quarterback, so he can groom him."

Mayock: "I think it's interesting, because a new administration has to look at a group of quarterbacks. Not just Trent Edwards, but Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Brohm, a second-rounder from a couple years ago. They've got to figure it out. Clausen's a good pick, for sure, though."

Rich Eisen: "If I'm the Jaguars, I am now disappointed that Jason Pierre-Paul is off the board, and I'm a little surprised Spiller is still there. I know my offense did not put up many points last season. Maurice Jones-Drew is fabulous and a Pro Bowler, but I wonder about the wear on him at his size. Plus, I'm sitting here knowing I need to put fans in the seats. Spiller has played in the region. But Jack Del Rio is a defensive-minded coach, so I have to go with Derrick Morgan. I have to go with him, as much as I want the sexy pick."

Instant analysis ...

 

Mayock: "I think this pick is open for debate."

Davis: "I like him a lot, but is he a double-digit sack guy?"

Mayock: "There are a couple things here. They did sign Aaron Kampman. Bottom line is they've put money into two defensive ends recently in Jacksonville. They have to think they've improved their pass rush there. I'm not saying they won't take him, but I would think they have to look at Spiller, and you have to look at Rolando McClain, too. But these are the three guys in play here, clearly."

Mariucci: "Jacksonville has to sell tickets."

Mayock: "Do you want to trade for Tim Tebow here, coach?"

Billick: "Have you ever been in a draft room where an owner or someone has the nerve to say they have to pick a player to sell tickets? I never have. They might be thinking it, don't get me wrong, but they'd never say it."

Steve Mariucci: "It's too early for Demaryius Thomas. I'm going to make my defense better. We were 26th against the rush last year. I'm going to take Rolando McClain from Nick Saban University. I gotta have him."

Instant analysis ...

 

Mayock: "Demaryius Thomas is being considered by a couple teams this high. What scares you about him is the triple-option offense he played in at Georgia Tech and the foot injury. But if you get past that the injury, he's 224 pounds and fast and he's going to go somewhere that high. The other guy is defensive tackle Dan Williams. The Broncos signed a couple 30-plus-year-old guys on that line. McClain is a solid pick, I'm just throwing a couple issues out there."

Mariucci: "They've got two second-rounders they can use to address those issues later."

Mayock: "If you go out and get a McClain or a Dan Williams or somebody who can help you now, you can really cluster some of those picks and get some real value."

Charles Davis: "The Dolphins need defense at every level. They need it at defensive line, especially on the interior, at inside linebackers, plus outside linebacker. And they need a safety because they didn't tackle well last year. At No. 12, I'm going to go with Sergio Kindle."

Instant analysis ...

 

Mayock: "Really? I have a question. Where are you playing him?"

Davis: "Outside linebacker."

Mike Mayock: "I want you to think about one thing: Bill Parcells' prototype outside linebacker is a bigger player. I'm not sure Kindle has the frame to put on that weight. Here's what I'll say, and it's a great discussion I think we'll have on draft day: When there were just a few teams playing 3-4, there were more of those guys to go around. Now, are you willing to take a 6-foot-1, 250-pound guy as your pass rusher? Notice that Dan Williams didn't go here, even though Jason Ferguson has an eight-game suspension."

Davis: "I did think about it."

Even though we picked a safety earlier, I'm going to go with tradition and take Joe Haden here."

Mayock: "Anybody disagree with that pick? There's a significant corner on the board. I would've thought the tackle or corner would be what they wanted, but the safety was there and you jumped on him. Michael Lewis has a hefty contract, and he's an average cover guy. That's a great pick."
