Craig’s 2009 NFL Mock Draft Pt. 2

Craig Trapp’s NFL Mock Draft – Feb 26th, 2009

This is part II of Craig’s mock NFL draft preview and prediction. We will take a look at the middle of the 1st round and breakdown each teams needs and also predict who they will pick. Make sure you check back next week as Craig will pick rest of the 1st round picks 21-32.

Part 123

11. Buffalo Bills

• Needs: Bills need to address three issues this draft TE, OL, and DE. Have seen about 6 different players being projected here and a lot will have to do with who is left on the board. They might take the best DE or OL available.

• Pick: Brandon Pettigrew TE from Oklahoma State will most likely be there pick if DE Brian Orakpo is already off the board. All reports are they love the DE and might even be willing to trade up to get him.

12. Denver Broncos

• Needs: Defense Line help is so bad on this team that not sure any one player could help them. If they can’t get some help in free agency they might try and trade down to get multiple defensive players that can all step in and play.

• Pick: DT, B.J. Raji, Boston College is a monster at 6′ 1″ 330 pounds. He gets a great push on the inside and in 2008 he recorded 11 tackles for loss (TFLs) and 6.5 sacks.

13. Washington Redskins

• Needs: Playmakers on defense are much needed for this team. Not really one position jumps out at you so would assume this team takes the best defensive player available.

• Pick: Malcolm Jenkins CB from Ohio State is by the best playmaker left on the board and might even be moved to safety with his size. Shut down corner that also is a great tackler in run support hard to find in the NFL.

14. New Orleans Saints

• Needs: Best offense in league last year needs a ton of help on defense though and not sure one draft pick here can turn this defense around. Shut down corner would help them or a DT that can stop the run.

• Pick: Saints are in love with Malcolm Jenkins might trade up to get him. If not they take Everett Brown who is a hybrid DE/OLB from Florida State. His flexibility could really help a team that does not have many playmakers on defense.

15. Houston Texans

• Needs: Much improved young team that does not need much to get them over the hump. Most likely will take a OLB/DE that can pass rush on 3rd downs and also can stop the run on early downs.

• Pick: Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU a potent left end who can both get to the quarterback and stop the run. Jackson will allow Mario Williams to play right end exclusively, where he’ll continue to wreak havoc upon opposing signal callers.

16. San Diego Chargers

• Needs: Offensive tackle help is much needed for this team. Also could use some depth at both DE and or LB. This team has been pretty good in the draft would not be surprised if they trade down to gather more late round picks.

• Pick: Brian Cushing OLB from USC is a very flexible outside pass rusher and very good tackler. His athletic ability is unbelievable and is a luxury pick at this spot. Think would love one of the top 3 OL to still be here but don’t think they will be here.

17. New York Jets

• Needs: QB they are desperate to get a signal caller and if both of the two QB’s are off the board it could be disaster time. Could use other WR playmakers also but without a QB to get the ball to them not sure it matters.

• Pick: Jeremy Maclin WR from Missouri is the best offensive player left on the board and will be a great receiver if they get someone to get him the ball.

18. Chicago Bears

• Needs: QB well we have said they have needed a QB for 3 years and they still like there current roster. Bears want a DE pass rusher and if they don’t get one in free agency will address it at this spot.

• Pick: Vontae Davie CB from Illinois will be the best available player on the board and is too good to pass up at this spot. Davis is the younger brother of 49er TE Vernon Davis. He has as much talent as any DB in the nation.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

• Needs: Not really any glaring needs and might be looking for a luxury pick at this spot. With both RB’s still on the board would be surprised if they don’t take one of them

• Pick: Knowshon Moreno RB at Georgia is too good to pass up here. With Cadillac injuries the last two years Moreno would give a huge boost to the run game. If Moreno isn’t here, the Buccaneers will look at Jeremy Maclin, Tyson Jackson, Peria Jerry and Josh Freeman as options, though it’s realistic that all four might be off the board.

20. Detroit Lions

• Needs: With the Lions already addressing there QB needs look for them to address there OL needs. All three of the top 3 OL sure to be gone they might have to stretch to take a OL a little higher than they might want.

• Pick: William Beatty, OT, Connecticut a slight stretch here but they have to get a OT no matter what. The Lions surrendered 52 sacks in 2008. Drafting a quarterback first overall and then not providing him with a top-notch left tackle would be foolish.

Craig’s mock draft picks #11-#20 will be very volatile with changes all the way up to the draft. Now with the draft combine over and individual workouts upcoming teams will be narrowing there list of players they like.

Don’t miss out next week as Craig finishes out his 1st round mock draft.

  1. The Houston Texans are my long shot pick for the AFC. They seemed poised to take the next step and adding a few good players at any position in the first few rounds can only help thier cause. You can never go wrong with a few more defensive playmakers so an OLB or DE makes sense to me.
