PewterReport.com 2009 NFL Mock Draft
1. Detroit Lions – Matthew Stafford QB Georgia
Stafford has a big arm and can make all the throws.
2. St. Louis Rams – Jason Smith OT Baylor
The Rams keep up the tradition of complete players at left tackle with Smith.
3. Kansas City Chiefs – Aaron Curry LB Wake Forest
He is probably the best pure football player in this draft. Great leader as well.
4. Seattle Seahawks – Eugene Monroe OT Virginia
The 'Hawks have seen the value of a standout left tackle with Walter Jones.
5. Cleveland Browns – Brian Orakpo DE Texas
The Browns only had 17 sacks last season, and Orakpo is the top pass rusher.
6. Cincinnati Bengals – Andre Smith OT Alabama
Smith is a massive road-grader, and the Bengals need some o-line help.
7. Oakland Raiders – Jeremy Maclin WR Missouri
The Raiders need a go-to receiver for quarterback Jamarcus Russell.
8. Jacksonville Jaguars- Michael Crabtree WR Texas Tech
The Jaguars need a game-breaker and Crabtree can learn under Tory Holt.
9. Green Bay Packers – B.J. Raji DT Boston College
The Packers could use Raji to be the nose in the 3-4 they switched to.
10. San Francisco 49ers – Mark Sanchez QB USC
Sanchez stays in state, and the 49ers could use stability at QB.
11. Buffalo Bills – Michael Oher LT Mississippi
The Bills get a replacement for the recently traded Jason Peters.
12. Denver Broncos – Tyson Jackson DE LSU
Jackson is a perfect fit as a 3-4 defensive end, and the Broncos need that.
13. Washington Redskins – Aaron Maybin DE Penn State
The Redskins struggled to rush the passer last season.
14. New Orleans Saints – Chris “Beanie” Wells RB Ohio State
Reggie Bush is a glorified third-down back and the Saints know it.
15. Houston Texans – Malcolm Jenkins CB Ohio State
Houston allegedly covets Jenkins, and they need corner help.
16. San Diego Chargers – Brian Cushing LB USC
The draft's most versatile defender will be a great fit in the Chargers 3-4.
17. New York Jets – Josh Freeman QB Kansas State
The Jets' quarterback situation is in rough shape.
18. Denver Broncos – Robert Ayers DE Tennessee
Ayers' size makes him a good fit, with Jackson they move to the 3-4.
19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Michael Johnson DE Georgia Tech
The Bucs get the pass rusher and athlete they need along the D-line.
20. Detroit Lions – Everette Brown DE Florida State
The Lions need a pass rusher, and Brown is the best available.
21. Philadelphia Eagles – Knowshon Moreno RB Georgia
Brian Westbrook is 30 and injury prone. Moreno makes him better.
22. Minnesota Vikings – Eben Britton OT Arizona
The Vikes need a right tackle. Britton makes Adrian Peterson more dangerous.
23. New England Patriots – Rey Maualuga LB USC
The Patriots could trade up with the Bucs if Maualuga is on the board at 19.
24. Atlanta Falcons – Larry English DE Northern Illinois
The Falcons need a pass rusher. Jamaal Anderson has been a bust.
25. Miami Dolphins – Vontae Davis CB Illinois
The 'Fins need a corner that can play man-to-man. Davis could be great.
26. Baltimore Ravens – Darrius Heyward-Bey WR Maryland
The Ravens get a weapon for Joe Flacco from their backyard.
27. Indianapolis Colts – Peria Jerry DT Mississippi
The Colts need a three technique, and Jerry is a perfect fit for them.
28. Buffalo Bills –Brandon Pettigrew TE Oklahoma State
Trent Edwards gets another weapon to go with Lee Evans and T.O.
29. New York Giants - Kenny Britt WR Rutgers
Britt has a Plaxico Burress skill set that worked well with Eli Mannning.
30. Tennessee Titans – Percy Harvin WR Florida
Harvin would combine with Chris Johnson for an explosive offense.
31. Arizona Cardinals – Clay Matthews, JR LB USC
Could easily get drafted sooner. Versatile defender.
32. Pittsburgh Steelers – Max Unger C Oregon
Is a perfect, nasty, physical offensive lineman for the defending champs.
