I always love these mocks, lotta fun. My thoughts on your picks:

#2 Dolphins: They'd spend the #2 on Kalil when they already have who could be the best LT in the game right now Jake Long? Suspect. I'd believe they'd take Trent Richardson to pair with Daniel Thomas (if they've already given up hope on Bush) or Landry Jones before Kalil.

#6 Jaguars: I think 3 WRs in the top 6 picks is a bit much. I think Floyd is a late 1st round pick at best.

#9 Panthers: If the Panthers use their 1st round pick on a DE when we already have two very young very good DEs I'll go apepoo. You said "someone to play opposite Charles Johnson" but I think you're forgetting about Hardy. He's been playing lights out this year, better than anyone could ever expect from a 2nd year 6th round pick. I'd even rather spend that pick on an OLB than DE, and I don't believe in taking 4-3 OLBs that high.

#14 Dallas: Eh, 14 might be a little early for a Safety...I could see Dallas going with Janoris Jenkins. They still have a big need at CB (which they've had for like 5 years running and not really addressed it). They're also the type of organization that doesn't shy away from off field problems, so Jenkins seems like the perfect fit.

#17 - 19, 21 - 22: I really like all these picks. I think Trent Richardson is a very good fit in Cleveland whether or not Hillis gets resigned. Hardesty doesn't look like the RB they thought they were getting when they drafted him. The Chargers need some playmakers on defense and Upshaw fits their needs and the value at this spot very well. Same thing with the Bills, their defense is horrible and though Ingram is a tweener all the guy does is make plays. I love this pick for the Bears, they really need Safety help since they cut Harris and Merriweather sucks. CB might not be the Bengals top need, but I like Gilmore as a big physical CB. Maybe a little early for him, but I like the player.

#30 - Really like this pick for the Patriots if they're sticking with the 4-3. Agree with what you said, they need some youth at D-line and this guy is good value this late.

One oversight, you picked for the Saints and Raiders after the 1st but not the Falcons? I agree they don't deserve any picks, but they'll probably get some anyway.

Good stuff but I must agree with Blaze. If we scoop up a DE I will scratch my head because we all know about CJ and Hardy has been beastin' it this year.

Why would Miami not take a QB? New coach will want his own guy under center.

Thanks Gang!! I realized I missed the Falcons pick.. I would give them TE Orson Charles (UGA) I love his athleticism and he can also block! A Shannon Sharpe clone.

As for Barkley and Jones.. not sold on them as 1st round prospects

Weeden is risk because of his age. I would expect if a team drafted him that high, they'd want him to play right away.

Then you're about the only one. Jones just broke Bradford's TD record at OU with the exact same offense and less talent at the skill positions.

I think they both go top 1-10.

It is possible that Barkley or Jones falls into mid/late first round, but I would be surprised if they fell into the 2nd.

I could see Barkley falling, but not Jones.

I can see the DE pick for Carolina, it couldn't do anything but upgrade the DE spot against the run.

I would love for us to get Coples, love, love, love. Some really bad picks though, draft was terrible for the most part. Floyd going 6? Hell nah. Dolphins taking Kalil over Barkley? They already have two incredible young lineman Puncey and Long. Matt Barkley is going to be a star, bank on it. Kid has all kinds of talent, I love that fit for Washington or Miami. LA surfer kid swag, comes from a pro style offense, he's far and away the second best quarterback in the draft.
