SBN Mock Draft: Hawks Nearly On the Clock

Update III: Okay, time up. Thanks everyone for participating. Announcement tomorrow.

Update II: Okay, we need to wrap this up pretty soon. I'm giving it to 6 PST. I'm still not sure where to go with this pick, but I'll say this: I'm nothing if not loyal.

Update: I added some videos for consideration.

I have something in queue about Dustin Keller, who I have no interest in, but I know a number of you do. That has to sit for a couple days, though, because it's SBN Mock Draft time! The Titans will wrap up today's drafting shortly and Field Gulls opens tomorrow with their pick. Here's the progress/who's gone:

  1. MIA - DE Chris Long
  2. STL - DE Vernon Gholston
  3. ATL - OT Jake Long
  4. OAK - RB D. McFadden
  5. KC - DT Sedrick Ellis
  6. NYJ - DT Glenn Dorsey
  7. NE - CB Leodis McKelvin
  8. BAL - QB Matt Ryan
  9. CIN - LB Keith Rivers
  10. NO - CB Rodgers-Cromartie
  11. BUF - WR Malcolm Kelly
  12. DEN - DE Derrick Harvey
  13. CAR - OT Ryan Clady
  14. CHI - RB R. Mendenhall
  15. DET - OT Chris Williams
  16. ARI - CB Mike Jenkins
  17. MIN - DE Phillip Merling
  18. HOU - RB J. Stewart
  19. PHI - WR Limas Sweed
  20. TB - WR DeSean Jackson
  21. WAS - CB Aqib Talib
  22. DAL - CB Antoine Cason
  23. PIT - OG Branden Albert
And here's my shortlist of remaining players.

Kenny Phillips, FS, Miami: Consensus top safety in this draft class. Junior, three year starter. Of his 82 tackles, 57 came in run support. Rated as the number one overall safety prospect exiting high school by Earned 2006 All-ACC Academic Football Team honors. Considered a well rounded cover/run stopping safety. Great build, great tools--may be underrated due to Miami's struggles. Replaces Brian Russell.

Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville: Top rated quarterback prospect in the draft before the Matt Ryan hoopla began. Three year starter at Louisville, 33 starts, 65.8% completion percentage. Athlete. Great read. Great mid range zip and accuracy. Great touch on deep passes. Good pocket awareness. Accuracy underneath. Saves Seattle from protracted rebuilding phase.

Trevor Laws, DT, Notre Dame: Covered.

All other suggestions welcome. I'm hoping for a lively discussion. I'll be participating.
