2009 NFL Mock Draft (Part 2)

NFL Mock Draft – Picks 1-16 / NFL Mock Draft – Round 2

17. New York Jets
Josh Freeman, QB, Kansas State
This would be a pretty solid pick for the Jets, so we know that I’m wrong here.

18. Denver Broncos (CHI)
Donald Brown, RB, UConn
Brown made a lot of money at the combine, cementing a first round pick with solid feet and speed. Hopefully he can put the Denver RB position back on the map.

19. Tampa Bay Bucs
Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Maryland
DHB is one fast Terrapin. Joey Galloway is wearing the Patriot colors now, so Byron Leftwich needs someone to stretch the field.

20. Detroit Lions (DAL)
William Beatty, OT, UConn
An atletic big man, Beatty provides the blocking that the Lions need to free up Stafford and company.

21. Philadelphia Eagles
Chris Wells, RB, Ohio State
With Buckhalter gone and Westbrook waning, Wells would be a great replacement and compliment.

22. Minnesota Vikings
Hakeem Nicks, WR, North Carolina
Now that the Vikes have Sage Rosenfels, Nicks would be a great guy to catch his passes and recover his fumbles.

23. New England Patriots
Robert Ayers, DE/OLB, Tennessee
Ayers can get to the quarterback, which is exactly what the Patriots need, and Volunteers have been good to the Patriots lately. Safety is an option here as well.

24. Atlanta Falcons

Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Oklahoma State
A nice little comfort blanket for Matt Ryan that happens to be able to run block like an OT as well.

25. Miami Dolphins
Brian Cushing, LB, USC
As the Broncos change to a 3-4, Cushing’s versatility will be highly valued. He is a true workout freak.

26. Baltimore Ravens

Alphonso Smith, CB, Wake Forest
With Corey Ivy and Chris McAlister gone, the Ravens need a good young CB. Smith has the swagger that suggests he would fit in just fine with Ed Reed and company.

27. Indianapolis Colts
James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State
Not a 4.4 forty guy, but his lack of false steps and good instincts make him a natural fit in the Colts defense

28. Buffalo Bills

Louis Delmas, S, Western Michigan
Smart, hitter, leader. Would pair up well with Donte Whitner and the rest of the Buffalo secondary.

29. New York Giants

Rey Maualuga, LB, USC
Great linebacker prospect that hits hard and can cover as well as stop the run. Will continue to improve as a pass-rusher, but needs to get more athletic than his kicker.

30. Tennessee Titans

Aaron Maybin, DE/LB, Miami
While he didn’t have a great combine, Maybin fits the Titans scheme well and should compliment Vanden Bosch well.

31. Arizona Cardinals
Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia
Edge can’t do it forever, and Moreno is a back that can compliment the potent Cardinal passing game well.

32. Pittsburgh Steelers
Jamon Meredith, OT, South Carolina
Big Ben needs blockers, and big boy Meredith brings the skills that the Steelers need.

    Yet another rookie mock draft, Ravens will not take a CB in the first round

    Come on man–Delmas grades as a mid-second round pick!

    Crabtree falling to 19? I don’t think so! Remember Randy Moss’s drop and how many teams kicked themselves later!

  5. Nickname unavailable says:

    OK I am going to say this one more time. Susan – I agree with you. NO WAY the Pats will draft a Safety like Delmas with the 23rd pick. There are too many better players out there before Delmas, and the kid from ND is bigger and faster than Delmas and will be available in the 2nd or 3rd round if the Pats need a safety.

    no way in hell crabtree falls that far.

    your a joke ! you claim to have one of the best mock drafts yet when its the patriots turn to pick they are going with Louis Delmas even though Brian Cushing,Robert Ayers,Rey Maualuga, James Laurinaitis, and Aaron Maybin are still sitting there. Your a Fool !

  8. Nickname unavailable says:

    No way, no how, Louis Delmas at #23. Watched quite a bit of film on him. He reminds me more of Meriweather than Harrison. I can more easily imagine the Pats drafting a defensive lineman, perhaps an offensive lineman than a safety. Maybe in the latter rounds the Pats will look for Safety help.But there really isn’t any truly exceptional DB’s in this years draft.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Maualuga falling to the Giants? We should be so lucky! It’s like having Antonio Pierce if he was ever athletic. Great fit, especially with the top tier WRs off the board.

    If by some chance jeremy maclin did fall that far and the bears pass him up to take an offensive tackle, put me on suicide watch!

  11. florida ted says:

    Look for Buffalo to trade 1st 2nd 3rd to KC for their number 3 pick round 1 and take Stafford as the future of their team..If available because Seattle will pick him at nmber 4 if still around..

  12. Anonymous says:

    Brown is way better than McCoy and is a top 20 pick in Mayock’s estimation. Do some research Zac Burns

  13. Zac Burns says:

    This is a horrible mock draft…. First of all Crabtree is a 15-20 pick at the most… Also the RAMS will not pass up Stafford if he is there, there coach wants a QB with a good arm… Andre Smith is one of the best OL out there in the draft but he messed himself up by not beging ready for the combine, is position in this draft will plumet and he will go to the STEELERS at 32. 17-32 is ok but i think the Jets are going to get Maclin because he is the best WR in the draft and he would be a huge steal at 17. The last and final thing i think that you have wrong is pick 31. Brown is a good back but he is mid second round talent. McCoy from Pitt would be a great pick he has the speed that they need and power.

    While James Sanders is a fine player, I feel that Delmas would be an upgrade. You can’t have enough good safeties anyway, as DB always seems to be an injury prone position.

  16. Anonymous says:

    Pats dont need a safety, they just resigned James Sanders and their other safety Brandon Meriweather played well all of last season, leading the team in picks and finishing second in tackles. Cornerback or outside linebacker is a more likely pick

    for the lions you got the first round right, 2nd round get duke robinson they need a left guard.

    Sorry bro….not feeling this mock draft at all. I doubt that Nicks and Heyward-Bay get drafted in the first round and there is no way Bay goes before Macklin.

    @Cameron Wake guyYou need to quit reading ESPN the Magazine

  20. Anonymous says:

    I’m sorry. But “no way” the Dolphins go for a pass rush specialist whether he plays outside ‘backer or defensive end. That’s why they signed Cameron Wake from the Canadian Football League. Miami needs a cornerback to replace Goodman, or a centre to replace Samson Satele and move Satele to guard. D.J. Moore from Vanderbilt would be a solid corner. Or, Max Unger would provide the Dolphins versatility whether at centre and guard.

  21. Anonymous says:

    Vikings won’t take a safety in round 1. Tyrell Johnson will be replacing Darren Sharper, he was our first pick, 2nd rounder, last year. We also signed Free Agent Madieu Williams one of the better young safeties in the NFL last year so we wont be taking a safety in round 1. ohh and in response to the first commentor, Miami drafted Lorenzo Booker not the Eagles. You traded for him.

  22. JHarvey says:

    Brett I think a trade between NE and KC is a good possibility,LJ would be great…aka Corey Dillon. Also it may be possible to get Tony Gonzales and a high draft pick as well…maybe 1st round next year or they may take 2nd round this year

  23. Anonymous says:

    This draft class bores me. The free agent market, to me, brings more excitement. Is Ray Lewis headed to Dallas? Are the Titans pursuing Boldin to help the putrid passing game of Collins or Young? Where will Chris McAllister land a new job? Also, I heard a possible trade between the Pats and the Chiefs that would send Matt Cassell to Kansas City and Larry Johnson to NE. What do you guys think? BRETT from Texas

  24. Brett from Texas says:

    Any news on the possible trading of Matt Cassell. I heard from ESPN that there have been talks between the Pats and the Chiefs regarding Larry Johnson. The Pats need a running back to balance things. What do you guys think?

    No way the Vikings take a Saftey with their first pick. They drafted Tyrell Johnson last year to take over Sharpers spot, and with getting Williams from Cincy last year as well they wont touch a Saftey first round. By looking at your mock if Jason Smith is availble he will be choosen at 22. DJ Moore, Eben Britton or Percy Harvin would be better picks at 22 then Rashad Johnson. Not to mention filling positions of need

  27. florida ted says:

    Lets see big pats fan here in florida..Doesn’t anyone remember the fettish bill B has for tight ends???If he couldd he would have a full team of them..I see Pats moving to get Pettigrew in the first..Big,strong,fast and decent blocker Bill’s type of player..I wonder how many picks KC will make from our draft board sine Poli is gon now??Should get some kind of com pensation for all coaches gone again..

  28. Anonymous says:

    The secret to this draft is the second round, now that Cassell is franchised, a trade with KC makes sense. Not for their 1st round pick but their second, and fourth.Guys I liked in the Senior Bowl #1 Scott McKillop, tackling machine.#2 Larry English. #3 Louis Delmas. Cushing in this game I was not impressed with. If Pats can get that extra second round pick, and fourth, they can come away with 2 good corners good Linebacker (Clay Matthews Jr.), in the fourth with KC’S, pick Scott McKillop. First round anybodys guess. Hopefully English.

    the pats wont draft a corner in the first round, they will draft a de/olb, i like penn states maybin. reminds me of willie mac.

    I really don’t see Baltimore taking a linebacker in the first. Cornerback or Wide Reciever, probably

    As a Miami Dolphins season ticket holder and fanatic of the team…I can tell you this draft analyst has Miami’s pick dead on. In all of Coach Sparano’s post-Baltimore press conferences, he’s stated that Bill Parcells, Jeff Ireland and himself believe that way to build a team is from the interior lines outward. The very first question regarding what the Dolphins need to do as far as getting better for 2009…was getting stronger at the Guard-Center-Guard positions. A guy like Eben Britton is exactly the kind of pick the Dolphins would take with their 1st round pick.

    Either the Cardinals or the Eagles will have to pick 31st or 32nd so a bunch of teams will move up one pick.

    Richard….. fisher376@yahoo.comNice start……will be tougher when underclasmen elect to enter the draft….As a Pats fan, either DJ Moore….James Laurinits…or Wm Moore would make it a good start to re tool the defense…Go Pats and super bowl in 09

    I am not sure why the pats wouldn’t try and pick up a guard with their first round pick and then wait for chung in the second. He would be an excellent compliment to Meriweather (shouldve been a pro bowler)…

    like the mock but just a few problems. the jets wont take a a rush linebacker in the first round agian. they havent given up on vernon gholston yet. they knew when the drafted him it was going to take him a long time for him to understand the defense. and it wont matter who the coach is. if they go to a 4-3 they have ellis gholston and coleman to for d ends. if william moore, knoshown moreno, or chris wells are avaible, they would probably go those routes depending on offseason moves. one more note i dont think shonn greene wont go before moreno and wells.

    Vikings dont have a good quarterback but they will select a cornerback or a offense linemen in the first round. They will select a quarterback in the 3 or 4 round.

  41. Anonymous says:

    Not a chance that the Bears draft a CB!! It’s one of their deepest positions an their problems in pass defense are all about a lack of pass rush & no natural FS. The only position on D the Bears might address in the first round are FS or DE. Look to Mays (if he drops), Moore, Brown, Hardy. On offense Robinson or if they have to a WR.

  42. Matt12 says:

    The Jets don’t need an OLThey have one of the best in the league,With Faneca, Mangold, Woody and othersThey will probably draft a QB, RB, or a WR

  43. Anonymous says:

    Shonn Greene is not going before Chris Wells in the draft.

  44. Anonymous says:

    Orakpo will be a top 5 pick. The Texans will pick around #18, not #10 or so, as you think. If Orakpo is still on the board when the Texans pick ( incredibly unlikely) they will make that selection in record time.What the Texans need is, in this order: A pass rushing DE opposite Mario, a safety who can cover and punish, a short yardage RB, and another DT who can stuff the run or collapse the pocket, beyond that this team is playoff ready. No way they take an OL in the first round.

    Really? The Bills drafting a RB in the 1st round? Is that based on the only sound position they have is at RB? I don’t get it.

    I don’t see Beanie going to the Bills given Lynch’s presence (and they seem to dig Fred Jackson too), and I definitely don’t see him going after Shonn Greene. It’s fine to be of the opinion trhat Greene is in fact the better prospect, but he’s really not going to be drafted ahead of Beanie, especially considering the kind of display Beanie might be capable of putting on at his pro day/the combine.

    So the Tampa Bay Bucs draft yet another OG? After selecting Davin Joseph in the 1. round, Aaron Sears early in the 2. round and Jeremy Zuttah in the 3. the past 3 years.. And with Tampas line actually beeing one of the better lines in football i really don’t see that coming…

  54. Anonymous says:

    There will be a lot of quality O Lineman in next years draft so they could probably get one in the second round like a Max Unger or Alex Boone. They need to keep adding to that defense and start in round one; I would love to see them trade up for Rey Maualuga.

    If the Vikings “need to win now”, why would they restart at the QB position by drafting a 1st round QB? Wouldn’t they go after the biggest FA QB in the offseason and draft a QB in the later rounds while they could still get great OT or TE talent (argueably bigger needs) in the 1st? (using your draft model there are several at both positions taken within 10 draft picks from where the Vikings are picking)

    Texans will draft safety and running back rounds 1 & 2. Not sure which order though, hopefully Mays or Moore in the first. If theyre off the board, we’ll go RB.

    If Brian Cushing were to still be on the board when the pats come up they would grab him and grab him fast.

    The Eagles won’t pick a running back in the first couple rounds. If they want a backup they’ll go for the 3rd or 4th. The current Eagles runningbacks and rounds are as followed Westbrook-3Booker-3 Buckhalter-4 Hunt-3 Moats-3, I do think that the Eagles might draft a running back though if Booker doesn’t do well. Otherwise a linemen would bea good choice since I think Runyan and Thomas will be gone next year.
