NFLDraftBlitz.com 2007 Mock Draft

Round 1:

1) San Francisco 49ers – *Adrian Peterson (RB) Oklahoma

Analysis: Frank Gore may be the running back of the moment for the 49ers, but barring a 1,500+ yard season from him, picking Peterson is a no-brainer. Peterson should be an impact player from the first day he suits up.

 

2) New York Jets – *Sam Baker (OT) USC
Analysis: The casual draft fan may not yet be aware of just how good Sam Baker is. Make no mistake, he’s a special prospect who has the chance to anchor an offensive line for 10 years.

 

3) Houston Texans – *Dwayne Jarrett (WR) USC

Analysis: Eric Moulds was a nice addition for the team, but he’s not getting any younger. Jarrett is a big, strong and fast wide receiver who has shown the ability to make tough catches look routine.

 

4) Tennessee Titans – Gaines Adams (DE) Clemson

Analysis: One season of Kyle Vanden Bosch not withstanding, the Titans have been lacking an impact player on the outside of the defensive line since Jevon Kearse left town for Philadelphia. Adams is a disruptive pass rusher who can change opponents offensive gameplans.

 

5) Buffalo Bills – Brady Quinn (QB) Notre Dame

Analysis: J.P. Losman could surprise us all and have a breakout season as a starter for the Bills this season, but we’re not counting on it. Quinn is as NFL-ready a quarterback as you could hope for and could start as a rookie.

6) New Orleans Saints – *Antoine Cason (CB) Arizona

Analysis: Cason has the potential to become an elite level player at the cornerback position. He combines good size with very good speed, ball skills and closing ability.

 

7) Green Bay Packers – **Sidney Rice (WR) South Carolina

Analysis: The Packers appear to be in for a rough season this year and could go a lot of different ways with this pick. However, the chance to pick up a game-changing wide receiver is too much to pass up.

 

8) Oakland Raiders – *Brian Brohm (QB) Louisville

Analysis: Aaron Brooks is an inconsistent a quarterback as is in the NFL today. Andrew Walter is being groomed as the QB of the future, but he’s struggled this season to the point where the team has recently signed Jeff George.

 

9) Detroit Lions – *Lawrence Jackson (DE) USC

Analysis: Players with the size and speed of Lawrence Jackson don’t come along very often. He’s may not be in a Julius Peppers / Mario Williams class, but Jackson is only a half-step down from them as a prospect.

10) Cleveland Browns – Joe Thomas (OT) Wisconsin

Analysis: Thomas is an obvious pick here as the Browns are surprised to see him still on the board. Thomas has added some muscle to his frame and should be able to come in and start right away for the Browns.
