Team Mocks: Rams, 49ers and Chiefs


BleacherReport.com
continues their series of team-by-team mock drafts, projecting the best-case, most realistic and worst-case scenarios for each team.  As we move forward we'll combine these mocks in to three-team packages for easier consumption.

Take a look!



St. Louis Rams

The St. Louis Rams have a lot of holes to fill.

They need about as much help as a blind quadriplegic calling a suicide hotline.

They can address some of their needs via free agency—a big new wide receiver here, an offensive lineman there, maybe even a veteran quarterback to groom the star of the future.

Aah, the future.

The Rams were the third youngest team in the NFL last season, and look to remain young in 2010 because the majority of their needs will be met during April’s draft.

San Francisco 49ers

Even when you have eight picks - two in the first round no less - each selection must count.

While an emerging team like the 49ers can always stand to improve just about anywhere, some needs are far more important to fill than others.

The offensive and defensive line, the secondary and a dynamic kick/punt returner on special teams - all are areas the team needs to solidify prior to the beginning of the 2010 season.

The offensive line allowed too much pressure and too many hits on the quarterback, while conversely the defensive line generated too little pressure on opposing signal callers.

Kansas City Chiefs

Truth be told, GM Scott Pioli could pick just about anyone with the fifth overall selection, and that pick almost certainly would be an upgrade over the player who played that position in 2009.

What fans need to understand however, is that the draft isn't solely about who a team can grab with their first-round pick. The draft is about leveraging each and every pick against the available talent pool, and acquiring guys in each round that can help your football team.

In this mock draft, I've put together a group of players that should all be available when the Chiefs' pick comes up in each round. Even better, six or seven of these guys could very well start for this team next season.

Sleeper central


By Chad Reuter , NFLDraftScout.com


The Texas vs. the Nation Challenge can become an afterthought on the postseason all-star game circuit, primarily because it is held in El Paso the week after the heralded Senior Bowl.

The success of recent participants has helped raise interest in the game among scouts and administrators.

     
Twenty-five players who participated in the Challenge last season were drafted in April, including immediate NFL contributors such as Bears wide receiver Johnny Knox (Abilene Christian), Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang (Eastern Michigan), Bengals running back Bernard Scott (Abilene Christian) and Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb (Nicholls State). Alumni from the 2008 game include left tackle Demetrius Bell (Bills/Northwestern State), wide receiver Pierre Garcon (Colts/Mount Union) and running back Tim Hightower (Cardinals/Richmond).

The 2010 rosters -- no longer fully tied to geographical boundaries -- are filled with small-school stars and solid players from major programs not invited to the East-West or Senior Bowl.

Chad Reuter: Mathematical Mock

Numerical order: Mock drafting by the numbers

NFLdraftsite.com

Even the best mock drafts miss on six or seven players in the first round. An author who accurately projects eight players to the correct team in the first round deserves praise for his work.

That makes studying trends and using history a good way to take some of the "over-thinking" out of the mock draft equation.

The mock draft below is based on how the past 15 drafts unfolded. To place players in each slot, the first, second (also known as the median) or third quartile slot values for each position-rank combination (quarterback being No. 1, tight end No. 3, etc.) were used, with the average value used as a tiebreaker. The strength of the 2009 class at each position determined the quartile values used.

Using statistics to determine a mock will lead to some very unlikely scenarios, especially when a certain position group is considered strong or weak. This year, the offensive tackle class is strong (although eight won't go in the first round like last year) so the math puts players like Andre Smith and Michael Oher too far down the board. The 2009 safety class is a bit weak at the top (unless you rate Malcolm Jenkins as a free safety) so it's unlikely one will be picked in the late first round, as is typical.

By the same token, using math will point to some players who might not go as high (or as low) as people expect. Some mock drafts had tackles Ryan Clady, Chris Williams and/or Brendan Albert going in the top 10, but none made it. A similar situation could happen this year. Not everyone had Darren McFadden going to Oakland at No. 4 in 2008, but historically it made sense. The same appears to apply to Chris "Beanie" Wells, as he could sneak into the top 10 despite being picked by most mock draft authors to go in the 14-16 area.

Prisco's Mock Draft

Stafford back to No. 1, Sanchez on rise

The Jay Cutler trade to the Chicago Bears forces changes to the mock draft.

The Broncos now have the No. 18 pick in the first round, acquired in that trade from the Bears, to go with their 12th overall pick.

That will change the total look of any mock.

This mock also includes the Detroit Lions taking Georgia quarterback Matt Stafford. I'm more convinced now that's the direction the Lions will take.

The Broncos also could be in the market for a quarterback with Cutler gone, but I see them going defense with their two first-round picks, rather than taking a quarterback.
