WITH THE 24TH PICK IN THE 2009 ISH NFL MOCK DRAFT.. THE ATLANTA FALCONS SELECT..

BRIAN CUSHING, LB FROM USC



I had a hard time thinking who to take.. Pettigrew or Cushing.. Cushing or Pettigrew.. or maybe Darius Butler.. safety from Connecticut..

But with the departure of Michael Boley and Keith Brooking. Falcons obviously need a LB. And If Cushing is available at the real draft at 24, they should take him. He's an aggressive and intense energy player who every team needs. He just loves tot tackle. the harder the better. And he's a very versatile guy at that (played TE, DE, and RB in highschool). Also plays the blitz well from a LB.

With the 25th pick, the Miami Dolphins select Clay Matthews, LB from USC.



The Dolphins look to address their needs at WR and CB, but with good depth in this draft at both positions, and the signing of Eric Green, they can afford to look elsewhere. This LB class isn't that deep and with Joey Porter getting older, and Matt Roth playing out of position in the 3-4, the Dolphins grab the top OLB available.

Matthews comes from a family of football players (his father was a 4 time Pro-Bowl LB, his uncle is the great Bruce Matthews), was coached by Ken Norton Jr., and played alongside two other 1st round picks. After walking on at USC, he was named their special teams player of the year 3 times before jumping into the starting lineup on perhaps the greatest LB corp of all time before his senior season.

The Dolphins will love a guy that works this hard.

The Ravens select:

Alphonso Smith, CB, Wake Forest


The Ravens need CB help and he's the best CB here. Samari Rolle and Chris McCallister are not with the team and Fabian Washington is gonna hit the market next off season. They signed Foxworth but they can possibly loose 3 CB's. Smith will be the nickel corner and gives them a luxury if Washington asks for too much. Smith will be the future starter at CB. Ravens would go for a WR, or OT in this spot but getting either at this pick would be a reach, Hakeem Nicks or even Duke Robinson would be a good pick here.

Peria Jerry will be the Colts pick here. He's the defensive tackle from Ole Miss and will provide the team with what they currently lack - a potential difference maker in the middle.

I'll add a picture and more detail later.

Giants select:

Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers



He was a extremely productive player at Rutgers. Has great size . Very similar to Plaxico, both big, make tough catches, physical and they need a WR as it is there only weak point. The Giants need a tall WR like Britt to go along with Hixon, Smith, Moss who are more quicker wideouts.

A lot of people might think that with the departure of Albert this this pick might end up being a DT, but they have an immense amount of depth up front. Obviously there is a drop off when you replace Albert with anyone as he's the most dominant DT in the game, but if any team had the tools to replenish from within it's the Titans.

I don't like their corner back depth, and with Nick Harper being on the old side... it's time to add someone opposite of Finn for the future.

D.J Moore from Vandy is the Titans pick here.

With the 31st pick in the 2009 NFL Draft the Arizona Cardinals select...

Larry English N. Illinois LB/DE 6-2 274lbs.



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ad0Famkaas

*Two-time Mid-American Conference defensive player of the year

He was a standout during Senior Bowl week, flashing his quickness (he is especially known for having a quick first step and good closing speed).

English’s pluses are his athleticism, instincts and game speed; he can use work in pass coverage, which is understandable for someone who played with his hand in the dirt for his college career. Scouts praise his high motor and ability as a wrap-up tackler.

The Lions get themselves a massive NT by selecting Boston College's Ron Brace. This 6'3'' 330 monster will occupy blockers and give the Lion's linebackers the license to make plays.

The Rams select:
Robert Ayers, DE Tennessee

Leonard Little is getting up there in age, so why not replace him with another Tennessee product? I think that Ayers is a top 3 DE in this class, with good size being 6'3'' and 272 lbs. Sure, the Rams probably had a few more pressing needs, but a combo of Chris Long and Robert Ayers is too much to pass up. Ayers could push being the best DE in this class and is a top 15 value at the Rams' 34th pick.

The Browns Select

James Laurinaitas



An Ohio State product with a high motor and good instincts. not the most athletic player, but makes up for it with his intelligence and feel for the game. Hopefully he and the browns first round pick Orakpo can finally get some pressure on the opposing teams QBs that the aging and expected retiring Willie McGinest and ineffective Kamerion Wimbley hasn't.

the other possible pick would've probably been Darius Butler, CB from UConn. but being from ohio, and an OSU homer, had to go with the hometown kid.

Strengths:

Good bulk...Very physical and aggressive...A reliable tackler who will deliver the big hit...Strong and tough...Has a burst to close...Does a fantastic job against the run...Fluid hips to turn and run...Good range...Decent hands and ball skills...Has a non-stop motor...Terrific instincts / awareness...Intense and competitive...Major special teams potential...Great work ethic...Durable...Has lots of experience against top competition...Team leader in every sense...Was super productive.

Seattle really needs a safety and Chung fits that bill. Should be a solid contributer in the future and has the ability to help right now.

The Cincinnati Bengals select:
Donald Brown, RB UConn

Donald Brown will be the best running back out of this draft class. It was a suprise to see him here, as well as William Beatty and Darius Butler, as those 3 UConn guys should be gone in the first round. The 5'10'' 210 pound back is a running back with very strong legs and a great stiff arm. He could run inside or outrun you after one of his great stiff arms. He was still able to lead the nation in rushing even though UConn had no other offensive weapons and teams were able to consistently have 8 guys in the box.
