Phil Prusa's NFL Mock Draft
1. Dolphins - Jake Long, OT, Michigan
Miami has already sealed the deal and signed Long to a 5 year contract.

2. Rams - Glenn Dorsey, DT, Louisiana State
Tough decision between Dorsey and Chris Long, but Dorsey is the better player.

3. Falcons - Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
Atlanta needs to move on from the Michael Vick PR mess.

4. Raiders - Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas
Hardly a need pick, but this selection would have Al Davis fingerprints all over it.

5. Chiefs - Chris Long, DE, Virginia
With two picks in the first round, Kansas City can replace the traded Jared Allen.

6. Jets - Vernon Gholston, OLB, Ohio State
With their top two choices (McFadden and Ryan) off the board, New York needs to address the linebacker slot.

7. Patriots - Keith Rivers, OLB, USC
The selection of Rivers would be a welcome addition to an aging linebacker unit.

8. Ravens - Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy
Baltimore's secondary was old and injuries last year. McKelvin is the best CB in the 2008 Draft.

9. Bengals - Sedrick Ellis, DE, USC
Cincinnati has loved Ellis for weeks now and is hoping he lasts until their ninth pick.

10. Saints - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Tennessee State
At some point, the Saints have to be able to prevent the big pass play constantly torching their secondary.

11. Bills - Devin Thomas, WR, Michigan State
Could be a nice one-two punch with Thomas and Lee Evans at the receiver position.

12. Broncos - Ryan Clady, OT, Boise State
The tackle position was a trouble spot for Denver all last season.

13. Panthers - Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida
With holes at multiple positions, Harvey plugs the biggest need.

14. Bears - Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois
Time to acknowledge Cedric Benson is a bust.

15. Lions - Jerod Mayo, LB, Tennessee
Having just missed Mendenhall, head coach Rod Marinelli takes a linebacker that can play inside or outside.

16. Cardinals - Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas
Edgerrin James is still productive, but he's on the wrong side of his career age-wise.

17. Chiefs - Jeff Otah, OT, Pittsburgh
At some point, Kansas City has to address the offensive line which was putrid last season.

18. Texans - Brandon Albert, OT, Virginia
Ever since entering the league in 2002, the tackle position has been a problem for the Texans.

19. Eagles - Chris Williams, OT, Vanderbilt
The typical Andy Reid selection which should fill a huge need.

20. Buccaneers - DeSean Jackson, WR, California
After an easy schedule last season, Tampa Bay now needs some offensive weapons to continue their success.

21. Redskins - Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma
Either him or Phillip Merling. But with Merling coming off a hernia operation, Malcolm Kelly should be the right move.

22. Cowboys - Jonathan Stewart, RB, Oregon
Stewart backs up Marion Jones his rookie season, then can take over as the starter in his second year.

23. Steelers - Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College
Pittsburgh's usually strong offensive line had an off year in 2007, which led to a high amount of QB sacks.

24. Titans - James Hardy, WR, Indiana
Here's a novel idea: How about getting some receivers for Vince Young to throw to?

25. Seahawks - Dustin Keller, TE, Purdue
Seattle has nothing at the tight end spot right now.

26. Jaguars - Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas
There are character issues here, which is why Talib drops on my board. With Peyton Manning in this division, the move is worth the risk.

27. Chargers - Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
Could go for an offensive tackle, but corner is the more pressing need.

28. Ravens - Chad Henne, QB, Michigan (Projected trade with the Cowboys)
Knowing teams above them could nab Henne in the second round, Baltimore pulls the trigger on this trade and makes a deal with Dallas.

29. 49ers - Limas Sweed, WR, Texas
Adding Isaac Bruce is nice, but he can't play forever.

30. Packers - Tyrell Johnson, S, Arkansas State
Age is creeping up on the Green Bay secondary. Packers most likely address that with their first round pick.

31. Patriots - FORFEITED

32. Giants - Kenny Phillips, S, Miami
New York can fill one of the few needs they have by selecting Phillips.
