Final Bold Mock Draft

01. Houston – DE Mario Williams – NC State (The Texans pass on Bush, Casserly to retire)

02.San Francisco – RB Reggie Bush – USC (49ers trade both 1st rounds and more to get Bush)

03.Tennessee – QB Vince Young - Texas (In interviews Fisher sure sounds like he loves Young here)

04. NYJets – OT D’Brickashaw Ferguson - Virginia (The Jets take the tackle here)

05. Green Bay – LB AJ Hawk – Ohio St. (Green Bay needs a playmaker on defense, Hawk is that answer)

06. New Orleans – TE Vernon Davis – Maryland (Payton needs a good TE in his offense, Davis is the pick)

07. Oakland – FS Michael Huff – Texas (Davis loves to draft defensive backs, and Huff could be the target)

08. Buffalo – DT Broderick Bunkley - FSU (Buffalo will take the DT or trade down)

09. Detroit – LB Ernie Sims - FSU (The Cards need more defense and better LBs a LB could be the position pick here)

10. Arizona – QB Matt Leinart – USC (The Cards need Leinart to make a playoff run, Warner is washed up)

11. St. Louis – CB Jimmy Williams – VTech (Most likely a CB or LB will be drafted here)

12. Cleveland - DT Haloti Ngata – Oregon (Crennel nabs Ngata to anchor the 3-4)

13. Baltimore – CB Antonio Cromartie - FSU (Cromartie could be a star for the Ravens in the secondary)

14. Philadelphia – OT Winston Justice – USC (Philly loves offensive line players and Justice could be the pick)

15. Denver – WR Chad Jackson – Florida (An instant impact starter in Denver this year)

16. Miami – DE Kamerion Wimbley – FSU (The versatile DE will be an instant impact starter in Miami)

17. Minnesota – RB DeAngelo Williams – Memphis (Childress sees Westbrook in Williams & may be the guy)

18. Dallas – LB Bobby Carpenter – Ohio St. (Carp is versatile, can play the run and would be an instant starter)

19. San Diego – CB Jonathan Joseph – S.Carolina (Chargers traded Davis and need a premier CB)

20. Kansas City– CB Tye Hill– Clemson (KC needs to upgrade the defense with a CB)

21. New England – WR Santonio Holmes – Ohio St (The Patriots are thin at WR and Holmes will bolster the WRs)

22. New Orleans* – OT Marcus McNeil - Auburn (Instant upgrade at OT, and will help in the running game)

23. Tampa Bay – FS Donte Whitner (Offensive tackle or DB could be the pick late here)

24. Cincinnati – TE Leonard Pope - Georgia (The Bengals want more options on the offense Pope is a great add)

25. NYGiants – DT Gabe Watson – Michigan (CB or DT would be choices for NYG to look at here)

26. Chicago – FS Jason Allen - Tennessee (Chicago is light at DB, and DB should be the pick here)

27. Carolina – LB Demeco Ryans – ‘Bama (LBs are thin in Carolina, and could see a top notch LB taken here)

28. Jacksonville – TE Marcedes Lewis – UCLA (Jags could take TE, but LB is another need for them)

29. NYJets* – QB Jay Cutler – Vanderbilt (Mangini will get a possible steal here with Cutler free falling)

30. Indianapolis – RB Laurence Maroney–Minnesota (With James gone Indy needs RB help to make it in ‘06)

31. Seattle – OG Max Jean-Gilles - Georgia (This is a no-brainer for Seagirl fans, OG needs to be addressed)

32. Pittsburgh – WR Maurice Stovall – Notre Dame (Local product and instant starter with great hands)

Final 1st Day Draft Predictions

The draft almost never happens like fans would predict, but like past years I will give my final 1st Day Draft Predictions, they could be way off and most likely will be, but here it goes:

#18 - OLB Bobby Carpenter - Ohio State
#49 - DT Rod Wright - Texas
#80 - OG Charles Spencer - Pittsburgh

or
#18 - DE/LB Kamerion Wimbley - FSU
#49 - CB Ko Simpson - S.Carolina
#80 - DT Dusty Dvoracek - Oklahoma

There's no doubt we need a DT somewhere in this year's draft we are thin at DT, OLB is also a concern, Burnett could be a miss from last yrs draft and his injury history may continue, we need someone solid and someone that can come in a play, Carpenter is that player, lets take him.

We signed Marcus Coleman for a one year deal, I believe this means we WILL be looking at a DB early on.

Offensive line will probably be taken in the 3rd or on Day 2.

There's a big fall off in this year's draft from Day 1 and Day 2. I would not mind trading down or completely out of the 1st if we could pick up some 2nd and 3rds, the value seems really good in the 2 and 3rd round this year. Whatever the Cowboys do, I'm sure we will make the right picks that can contribute in our playoff run in 2006 and beyond!

Go Cowboys!
