    I posted one a few days ago, but it was messed up. So I deleted that thread, and now I have it finished. Feedback por favor!

    1st Round:

    1. Carolina - AJ Green, WR, UGA
    No Cam? No Dareus? AJ Green would be a great selection here. Clausen was just a second round pick last year, and was projected 1st. I don't believe the Panthers should just give up on him after a year. Even though he was horrible last year, I personally believe he deserves ONE more year. Very few QBs come in and dominate Year 1. If Clausen can't produce with the Panthers RBs and Steve Smith/AJ Green combo, then in the 2012 Draft go QB. It's likely if Clausen sucks the Panthers will suck, which means Luck is very possible is 2012.

    2. Broncos - Marcel Darues, DT, Alabama
    Pretty much a no brainer. Broncos need DT help, and Dareus is a physical freak. That 2nd overall DT worked pretty well last year... maybe the Broncos will hit the Jackpot like the Lions did with Suh.

    3. Bills - Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
    Bills need a superstar, someone to put Buffalo on the map. With Spiller and Stevie Johnson the Bills could potentially have a deadly offense. Fitzpatrick is still there and could start a year if they want Cam to sit a year or two. Or they could look to trade Fitzpatrick, he'd get some interest for some teams.

    4. Bengals - Blaine Gabbert, QB, Mizzou
    Mike Brown is going to realize Palmer is not coming back, and he's not bluffing. Since AJ is off the board, they should go Gabbert. I don't see them reaching on Julio, but it's possible. No other player makes sense here.

    5. Cardinals - Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M
    PP vs Von, tough choice for the Cardinals. I think they'll opt for Von; Porters days are numbered and Haggans isn't anything great. Atleast they have DRC currently in there backfield.

    6. Browns - Nick Fairley, DT, Auburn
    Fairley was a potential #1 pick last two months ago, now he's falling. Personally, I think he's just what the Browns need with their new 4-3 Defense. Robert Quinn is also an option here.

    7. 49ers - Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU
    Doesn't get much better than this for the 49ers. Their #2 need is CB (QB #1), and PP is the #1 overall player on my big board; and he fell to 7!

    8. Titans - Jake Locker, QB, Washington
    More and more buzz about Jake Locker to Tennessee. And if this is how the draft falls, it makes sense. The only other players I could see the Titans wanting is Robert Quinn or possibly Julio Jones. But, the Titans need a QB.. bad. Jake Locker has the leadership the Titans need to lead their offesne, just needs to work on that accuracy.

    9. Cowboys - Tyron Smith, OT, USC
    Cowboys could opt for a DT or Prince Amukamara here. But Tyron could potentially be a superstar OT. He's perfect for the Cowboys and could sit a year or two, then come in an shine. I also would be shocked if JJ Watt, Jordan, or Prince get drafted here.

    10. Redskins - Julio Jones, WR, Alabama
    I don't think the Redskins like Mallett or any other QB this early. Since the Titans took the Redskins QB, Julio makes sense. Besides Santana Moss, whos getting old, the Redskins have no receivers. Julio will help any QB that is leading the Skins.

    11. Texans - Robert Quinn, DE/OLB, UNC
    I'm not exactly sure how the Texans are going to set up their 3-4. Regardless another pass rusher never hurts.

    12. Vikings - Cameron Jordan, DT/DE, California
    Jordan is an interesting fit for the Vikings. After an amazing Senior Bowl his stock was flying high, not he's started to cool off. In a 4-3, he could play DE or DT, which makes him great for the Vikings. Having the flexibility to play behind the Williams wall, or possibly start if Ray Edwards leaves in FA is great for the Vikes.

    13. Lions - Prince Amukamara, CB, Nebraska
    Great, great, great pick for the Lions. They have a HUGE need at corner, Prince is the perfect fit for the Lions.

    14. Rams - Da'Quan Bowers, DE, Clemson
    Bowers "mystery knee" cost him the #1 overall spot possibly. The Rams take a risk here and draft Bowers. If his knee is healthy, and stays healthy he could be the steal of the draft. Pair him up with Chris Long and they could have a lethal combo.

    15. Dolphins - Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
    Rumor has it that the Dolphins are obsessed with Ryan Mallett. Mallett could start year one, and should be a good battle Mallett vs Henne for the starting spot.

    16. Jaguars - Rahim Moore, FS, UCLA
    I’ll be the first to say that Moore is a big reach. But, I also think that the Jaguars biggest need is FS. Jaguars reach on players they like (like Alualu) etc, most mocks have the Jaguars going DL, but I don’t see them going DL again this year (just like ’10 and ’08). They have a solid DL Rotation: Harvey, Kampman, Lane, Mincey, Alualu, and Knighton I don’t think an early DE/DT is needed). Greene played solid, and Moore will compliment him well. Jags take biggest need, and not best available.

    17. Patriots - J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin
    Patriots have a hard choice: Watt, Smith, or Kerrigan. I’m a big fan of JJ Watt and I think he’ll be a monster 34 DE, which is exactly what the Patriots need. He’s very hard working and seems like a perfect Belichick player.

    18. Chargers - Aldon Smith, OLB, Mizzou
    J.J. Watt was the perfect fit for the Chargers, but he went the pick before. I don’t see any other 34 DEs really worth the #18 pick. Instead the Chargers opt for a pass rusher and land Aldon Smith. Aldon can give the pass rusher the Chargers need. Wilkerson would be interesting here as well, but Aldon Smiths talent is too good to pass up.

    19. Giants - Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA
    Giants have a huge need at LB. Bulluck probably won’t be returning, if he does it will probably be his last year. Boley is playing alright, but nothing amazing. They also have a pretty big hole at ILB. Ayers is working his way back up the draft board, and would be a solid pick for the Giants. It will be hard for th Giants to pass on Castonzo here.

    20. Bucs - Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
    Great pick by the Bucs. Kerrigan is the DE that the Buccaneers needs, he’s a sack machine.

    21. Chiefs - Phil Taylor, NT, Baylor
    Tyson , Dorsey, and Taylor is a solid front 7. Taylor is a big NT, and fits what the Chiefs need.

    22. Colts - Anthony Castonzo, OT, BC
    Simple for the Colts, protect Peyton Manning. Great value pick at #22.

    23. Eagles - Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
    Hobbs career could be over, if not Smith is still a great pickup for the Eagles.

    24. Saints - Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois
    Really the Saints don’t have any HUGE needs, but their D-Line could always use help. Liuget is a great talent and would be a solid fit for the Saints.

    25. Seahawks - Christian Ponder, QB, Florida St
    4 QBs off the board by #15, the Seahawks are starting to get worried. They realize if they want a QB, now’s the time at #25. Ponder would be an elite QB, if he could just stay healthy. Hasselbeck may not return, so a QB is a big need.

    26. Ravens - Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
    Derrick Mason will probably retire, like he tried to last year. Housh and Stallworth were not anything amazing. Boldin needs another receiver to compliment him, Torrey Smith is just the guy to do that.

    27. Falcons - Jabaal Sheard, DE, Pittsburgh
    Falcons really need a DE, Sheard is an underrated prospect and a solid fit for the 4-3 of the Falcons.

    28. Patriots - Brooks Reed, OLB, Arizona
    Reed is starting to move up the boards. After the Pats got a DE with their 1st, they need to go OLB now. Reed is just what the Pats need, I don’t love Houston.

    29. Bears - Mike Pouncey, OG, Florida
    Hopefully this Pouncey plays like his brother, that would be a huge upgrade for the Bears.

    30. Jets - Muhammad Wilkerson, DE, Temple
    Jets need a pass rusher, but they might be scared of Gholston v2.0. I’m not a big fan of Houston, so I think the Jets take the smarter pick in Wilkerson. Not a sexy pick, but he gets the job done.

    31. Steelers - Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
    McFadden is horrible and the Steelers need a new #2 CB bad. There are some legit OL on the board, but I think they would prefer CB over OT.

    32. Packers - Danny Watkins, OG, Baylor
    Packers will need a starting LG, Colledge will probably leave. Watkins could start week 1.

    2nd Round:
    33. Patriots - Derek Sherrod, OT, Miss St.
    Improving the O-Line is always nice

    34. Bills - Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin
    Again, improving the O-Line is always nice, get a blocker for Cam/Spiller.

    35. Bengals - Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
    Bye bye Benson, Ingram and Gabbert are the new franchise faces of the Bengals.

    36. Broncos - Aaron Williams, CB/S, Texas
    Aaron William can play CB or possibly safety, both positions the Broncos could use, solid pickup.

    37. Browns - Martez Wilson, LB, Illinois
    Browns are switching to the 43 and need LB help, Martez is athletic enough to play 4-3 OLB or MLB.

    38. Cardinals - Benjamin Ijalana, OG/T, Villanova
    Cardinals OL is terrible. I’ve seen Ijalana listed as OG and OT, so his versatility will be nice. No QB here, I’m a firm believer that they will have Bulger or Kolb as their starting QB next year.

    39. Titans - Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon St
    Great value at 39, allow Jason Jones to switch to DE if needed.

    40. Cowboys - Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio St
    Cowboys opted not to go DE with their 1st, luckily they had a good talented player fall to them in the 2nd.

    41. Redskins - Andy Dalton, QB, TCU
    Is it legal for a ginger to play in the NFL? Redskins need a QB, bad.

    42. Texans - Ras-I Dowling, CB, UVA
    Texans had the worst secondary last year… worst in history. Ras-I will provide another CB option for them, their first pick last year (Jackson) and Dowling could produce a decent secondary.

    43. Vikings - DeAndre McDaniel, S, Clemson
    Vikings need some help in their secondary as well. McDaniel could start for them, reminds me of a slower TJ Ward.

    44. Lions - Bruce Carter, OLB, UNC
    Lions don’t have any elite LBs, and release Julian Peterson. Carter, is 100% healthy could be a monster.

    45. 49ers - Justin Houston, OLB, UGA
    A pass rusher for the 49ers would be nice.

    46. Broncos - Kyle Rudolph, TE, Norte Dame
    Rudolph will fit in nicely with the new broncos offensive system.

    47. Rams - Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami
    Rams need a legit #1 WR, Hankerson could potentially be that guy.

    48. Raiders - Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada
    Jason Campbell didn’t wow me or Al Davis last year. They struggled at QB all year, Kaepernick is a “Raiders-type” of player.

    49. Jaguars - Christian Ballard, DE, Iowa
    Solid 2nd round selection as they opted not to go DL rd1.

    50. Chargers - Jon Baldwin, WR, Pitt
    Big play WR for Rivers.

    51. Bucs - Mikel LeShoure, RB, Illinois
    Sure you have Blount, but he’s not really any every down back. LeShoure + Blount could be deadly for years. Cadillac Williams doesn’t wow me anymore.

    52. Giants - Marcus Cannon, OT, TCU
    Solid selection and improving that OL for Eli.

    53. Colts - Marvin Austin, DT, UNC
    Beefing up the DL, aint nothing wrong with that.

    54. Eagles - Rodney Hudson, G, Florida St
    Adding depth/potential starter on the OL.

    55. Chiefs - Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky
    Chiefs need a #2 WR to pair with Bowe, Cobb could be that guy.

    56. Saints - Mason Foster, OLB, Washington
    Foster is underrated and could be a great LB.

    57. Seahawks - Stefan Wisniewski, C, Penn St
    Wisniewski can play G or C, which is exactly what the Seahawks need.

    58. Ravens - Davon House, CB, New Mexico
    Ravens have a lot of average CBs, but no superstar. House will add competition to the Ravens secondary.

    59. Atlanta - Jerrel Jernigan, WR, Troy
    Falcons need a #2 WR to pair with Roddy, Jernigan could be that guy.

    60. Patriots - DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma
    DeMarco over Ryan Williams? Yep. DeMarco is a good receiving RB, which is something the Patriots love.

    61. Chargers – Allen Bailey, DE, Miami
    Chargers finally draft their biggest need: DE.

    62. Bears - Drake Nevis, DT, LSU
    Tommie Harris was released, Nevis can fill that void… maybe.

    63. Steelers - James Carpenter, OT, Alabama
    We all love to see Big Ben get sacked, but the Steelers don’t.

    64. Green Bay – Sam Acho, OLB, Texas
    Clay needs an additional pass rusher.

    I don't see Ingram slipping that far.

    I'm about to post my mock draft. It will be the only one I make. Have you made like 20 mocks? I swear you've said your "final" mock at least 5 times too. lol
