NFL Mock Draft

Here is PFW's attempt at an NFL mock draft. Be sure to take this with a grain of salt.

1.Oakland Raiders: JaMarcus Russell, QB LSU – I think Russell is going to be one of the biggest busts in draft history. I also think Calvin Johnson is the highest rated prospect to enter the draft in years. Which way do you think the Raiders will go? Just take a look at Al Davis' decision making over the last 15 years for the answer to that question.

2.Detroit Lions: Gaines Adams, DE Clemson – The Lions will most likely trade down from this spot but if they stay, look for them to take Adams to help improve their toothless pass rush.

3.Cleveland Browns: Adrian Peterson, RB Oklahoma – Despite injury concerns, Peterson is just too good to pass up here for the Browns. He has the ability to be a dominant running back for the next 10 years.

4.Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Calvin Johnson, WR Georgia Tech – If the Bucs get Johnson here, someone should call the cops. He's the best overall player on most draft boards, so to get him at No. 4 would obviously be a steal for Tampa Bay.

5.Arizona Cardinals: Joe Thomas, T Wisconsin – If Thomas is still on the board when the Cardinals pick, it should take about three seconds to get the card up to the commissioner. Their offensive line was garbage last year.

6.Washington Redskins: LaRon Landry, S LSU – The Redskins could go in a number of different directions here but the thought of teaming Landry with Sean Taylor might be too good for Washington to pass up.

7.Minnesota Vikings: Brady Quinn, QB Notre Dame – Andy Hart loves Tavaris Jackson but he's in the minority. Jackson has some skills but he's extremely raw and not ready to lead an NFL team. With the Vikings current quarterback situation, it would be hard for them to pass up on Quinn here.

8.Atlanta Falcons: Amobi Okoye, DT Louisville – The Falcons would love to take Landry here but if he's gone, Bobby Petrino could go with the 19-year old phenom he coached in college. Okoye will help improve a leaky Falcons rush defense.

9.Miami Dolphins: Alan Branch, DT Michigan – Branch is a beast in the middle and would add some size and youth to an aging Dolphins defense. Branch should be able to come right in and contribute as a rookie.

10.Houston Texans: Joe Staley, OT Central Michigan – Looking for a draft day shocker? Staley has been flying up draft boards and he fits in perfectly with the Texans zone-blocking scheme. If Peterson slides, he'll be the choice here but don't be surprised if Houston takes Staley to help improve its porous offensive line.
