CarsonDaMan Posted April 9, 2008 Report Share Posted April 9, 2008 I'm participating in a group mock draft and these are the picks i've made up to this point.With the number nine pick I went with Ryan Clady. I spent my time praying Sedrick Ellis dropped to me but it didn't happen. My choices came down to Clady, Harvey, and Keith Rivers. I felt Rivers was the worst player in this group so i X'd him out. I really like Harvey but Clady is the better player of the two. With Levi and Willie constantly banged up and Stacy Andrews long term status up in the air they need a tackle for the near future.Needless to say i'm not particularly comfortable with the pick but it's the best option under the circumstances. If it's up to me I do whatever I can to trade up and get Ellis. If they can't get a fair deal to do it then I look to trade down. If that happens I'm hoping to get Harvey. I also think DeSean Jackson may be a darkhorse if they do drop down a few spots. They obviously need a receiver now and he'd be perfect out of the slot. And it's no secret the Bengals want an explosive return man and Jackson is without a doubt that.On to round two. With the options available to me this pick was cut and dry. I went with E.J. Henderson out of Maryland. Prototypical size and can play in the 4-3 or 3-4 front. Very productive in college and adds some depth to the Linebacker position. I considered Mike Pollak but found Henderson to be the superior player. I also considered Martellus Bennett but with the Utect signing didn't see the need to grab him. All of the DLineman I was hoping to grab here were all taken.I'll be back with the rest of my picks when I make them. This is a 7 round mock draft.
