2009 NFL Mock Draft:

This is a very early look at a 2009 NFL Mock Draft.

As we have seen in recent years, underclassmen will likely dominate the 2009 NFL Draft. If you see (JR) it means the prospects will be juniors for the 2009 NFL Draft. This draft will be very weak at quarterback, running back and receiver, but should be incredibly strong at linebacker, tight end and defensive end.

1. Detroit Matt Stafford, (JR) QB Georgia

2008 NFL Draft Pick: RT Gosder Cherilus, Boston College

If 2007 NFL Draft pick Drew Stanton doesn't work out the Lions might take another QB. If Stafford improves his accuracy he might enter the draft early and if another junior, Florida 's Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow keeps improving his accuracy he could also be in the mix.

2. Atlanta Michael Crabtree (Soph) WR Texas Tech

2008 NFL Draft Pick: QB Matt Ryan, Boston College

The top receiver in the nation is a draft eligible sophomore. He is even good enough to be the first over all pick. Crabtree will give new QB Matt Ryan a big, fast target.

3. Miami James Laurinaitis LB Ohio State

2008 NFL Draft Pick: OT Jake Long, Michigan

Bill Parcells loves linebackers and he will be quick to select Laurinaitis if this is how the 2009 NFL Draft plays out. He might have been the first linebacker selected in the 2008 NFL Draft if he would have declared early.

4. Oakland Michael Oher OT Ole Miss

2008 NFL Draft Pick: RB Darren McFadden, Arkansas

Oher almost declared for the 2008 NFL Draft where he would have likely been a first round round pick. Oher plays with a mean streak and has nice size at 6' 6" 325 pounds.

5. Cincinnati George Selvie (JR) DE South Florida

2008 NFL Draft Pick: LB Keith Rivers

Selvie is a pass rushing terror, in 2007 Selvie led the nation in tackles for loss with an amazing 31.5 and an additional 14.5 sacks.

6. St. Louis Rey Maualuga LB USC

2008 NFL Draft Pick: DE Chris Long, Virginia

A massive (6' 3" 250 lbs) run plugging inside linebacker with supreme speed and the Rams need some attitude on defense. Rey might have been a top ten pick if he would have entered the 2008 NFL Draft.

7. Baltimore Malcolm Jenkins CB Ohio State

2008 NFL Draft Pick: QB Joe Flacco, Deleware

I was surprised Jenkins didn't enter the 2008 NFL Draft, where he would have been a top 20 selection. Jenkins is the top rated cornerback entering the 2008 season.

8. San Francisco Percy Harvin (JR) WR Florida

2008 NFL Draft Pick: DT Kentwan Balmer, N. Carolina

Not huge at 5' 11" 184 pounds, but Harvin is a super talent and put up huge numbers in 2007 where he ran for 764 yards and six touchdowns and also caught 59 passes for 858 yards and four scores. He had heel surgery in April 2008, but should be ready to play by the summer. A big play threat for the 49ers.

9. Chicago Curtis Painter QB Purdue

2008 NFL Draft Pick: OT Chris Williams, Vanderbilt

Painter is an unknown, but the 6' 3" 224 pound quarterback has legitimate NFL potential. The Bears haven't drafted a quarterback since 2005, when they drafted Kyle Orton in the 4th round. QBs Hunter Cantwell from Louisville and Todd Boeckman from Ohio State are a couple other QBs that could play their way into the first round.

10. Kansas City Greg Hardy (JR) DE Mississippi

2008 NFL Draft Pick: DT Glenn Dorsey, LSU/ OT Branden Albert, Virginia

Hardy could give the Chiefs the pass rusher they need since the trade of Jared Allen. Hardy is only a junior, but he is a very athletic football/basketball player with nice size, (6' 5" 255 lbs). Exploded onto the scene in 2007 as a sophomore, where he finished with an amazing 10 sacks and 18.5 tackles for loss.

11. NY Jets Tyson Jackson DE LSU

2008 NFL Draft Pick: DE Vernon Gholston, Ohio State

Jackson was not impressive in 2007, but he has the size (6' 4" 290 lbs) and athletic ability to rebound in 2008. He finished 2007 with only 3.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss. He was smart to return for his senior year.

Eagles

12. Philadelphia (from Panthers) Brian Cushing LB USC

2008 NFL Draft Pick (2nd round): WR Jackson, DeSean, California

The Eagles get a potential pro bowl linebacker with nice size (6' 3" 245 lbs). He fought injuries last year, but as a soph recorded 57 tackles and 13.5 tackles for loss.

13. New Orleans Michael Johnson DE Georgia Tech

2008 NFL Draft Pick: DT Sedrick Ellis, USC

Not huge at 6' 6" 255 pounds, but he is very explosive coming off the edge. Almost entered the 2008 NFL Draft where he was graded as a 3rd rounder despite missing most of the season with injuries.

14. Denver Brandon Spikes (JR) LB Florida

2008 NFL Draft Pick: OT Ryan Clady, Boise State

Hits like a ton of bricks and has nice size at 6' 3" 240 lbs. Spikes recorded 16 tackles for loss and 7 pass break-ups in 2007.

Eagles

15. Philadelphia Greg Middleton (JR) DE Indiana

Middleton at 6' 3" 270 lbs led the nation in sacks in 2007 with 16. He also recorded 17 tackles for loss and 50 tackles. He is a playmaker.

16. Arizona George (Duke) Robinson OG Oklahoma

2008 NFL Draft Pick: CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Tennessee State

A massive guard that could replace Leonard Davis and finally give the Cardinals a running game. Robinson is light on his feet and massive at 6' 4" 330 pounds.

17. Washington Victor Harris DB Virginia Tech

2008 NFL Draft Pick (2nd round): WR Thomas, Devin, Michigan State

Harris can play corner or safety and at 6' 0" 208 pounds, has excellent ball skills.

18. Minnesota Darrius Heyward-Bey (JR) WR Maryland

2008 NFL Draft Pick: S Johnson, Tyrell, Arkansas State

WR Troy Williamson, the seventh pick in the 2005 draft, has been traded to the Jaguars, so the need at receiver in Minnesota is great.

19. Green Bay Alex Boone OT Ohio State

2008 NFL Draft: WR Jordy Nelson, Kansas State

Many thought Boone and Laurinaitis would enter the 2008 NFL Draft. Boone (6' 7" 325 lbs) is an excellent prospect and grades out favorably to Jake Long, who was drafted number one over-all in the 2008 NFL Draft.

20. Houston William Moore FS Missouri

2008 NFL Draft Pick: OT Duane Brown, Virginia Tech

Moore is the epitome of a ball hawk, recording 8 interceptions in 2007 which was tops in the country. He is also a big time hitter with nice size at 6' 1" 215 lbs.

21. Buffalo Andre Smith (JR) FS Alabama

2008 NFL Draft Pick: CB Leodis McElvin, Troy

Smith has emerged as an elite offensive tackle and has started at left tackle since he was a freshman. He is huge at 6' 4" 345 pounds and very mobile.

22. Pittsburgh Brian Robiskie WR Ohio State

2008 NFL Draft Pick: RB Rashard Mendenhall, Illinois

The Steelers could use some more youth at receiver and Robiskie should be one of the top senior receivers available for the 2009 NFL Draft. He is the son of former NFL player and current coach Terry Robiskie and had 55 receptions for 935 yards and 11 TDs in 2007.

23. Cleveland Chris Wells (JR) RB Ohio State

2008 NFL Draft Pick (4th round): LB Beau Bell

Wells has all the talent in the world and will be the starter again for the Buckeyes in 2008. Wells is 6' 1" 225 pounds with 4.46 speed.

24. Tampa Bay Jeremy Maclin, Missouri (sophomore) WR Rice

2008 NFL Draft: CB Aqib Talib, Kansas

Coach Gruden likes offense and Maclin will provide just that. An eligible soph, if he comes out early he will be a hot commodity. Maclin (6' 1" 200), exploded for a team high 1,055 receiving yards last season. Blazing fast, Maclin ran a 4.32 this spring.

25. New England Vontae Davis (JR) CB Illinois

2008 NFL Draft Pick: ILB Jerod Mayo, Tennessee

The younger brother of 49er TE Vernon Davis. He (Davis) has as much talent as any DB in the nation. Yes the Patriots did draft CB Terrence Wheatley in the 2nd round in the 2008 NFL Draft, but Wheatley was a slight reach and might not be starting material.

Titans

26. Tennessee Aaron Kelly WR Clemson

2008 NFL Draft: RB Chris Johnson, East Carolina

The Titans get an excellent receiver with a lot of potential, tall and thin (6' 4" 190 lbs), but tough as nails. Kelly caught 88 passes and 11 TDs as a junior.

27. NY Giants Max Unger Center/OT Oregon

2008 NFL Draft Pick: S Kenny Phillips, Miami

Centers don't normally get drafted this high, but Unger (6' 5" 308 lbs.) is special. Unger is very versatile, he started at left tackle his freshman and sophomore years and then converted to center last year.

Seattle Seahawks

28. Seattle Jermaine Gresham (JR) TE Oklahoma

2008 NFL Draft Pick: DE Lawrence Jackson, USC

2009 might be considered the year of the tight end if Gresham comes out early. At 6' 5" 255 pounds he doesn't have any weakness; he caught 11 TDs in 2007.

29. Jacksonville Fili Moala DT USC

2008 NFL Draft Pick: DE Derrick Harvey, Florida

USC has a history of producing talented defensive lineman and the massive Moala (6' 4" 298 lbs) should be the next in line. A worthy replacement for Marcus Stroud.

30. San Diego Jeremy Perry OG Oregon State

2008 NFL Draft Pick: CB Antoine Cason, Arizona

A powerful offensive lineman (6' 2" 324 lbs) that sustains his blocks very well. Injured in 2007, but if healthy he could be a first round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.

31. Indianapolis Chase Coffman TE Missouri

2008 NFL Draft Pick (2nd round): C Pollak, Mike, Arizona State

Living in the shadow of Martin Rucker last year, who was drafted in the 4th round by the Browns. Coffman (6' 6" 254 lbs), will be the go-to guy for the Tigers and should put up lofty numbers in 2008. TE Travis Beckum is also a possibility.

32. Dallas Herman Johnson OG LSU

2008 NFL Draft Pick: RB Felix Jones, Arkansas / CB Mike Jenkins, South Florida

A complete monster at 6' 6" 350 pounds, but he is not fat. Johnson has great feet and balance, he just needs to play with a mean streak. A replacement for struggling Kyle Kosier.

Im really curious where Tebow goes. I can't ever remember a guy coming out at the Qb position quite like him. I wouldnt be surprised if he stays another year...

I think he already said he will stay until his senior year. Personally i think he will be a bust. "Power" QB's won't work against NFL Linebacker's and Defensive Linemen.

It really depends. If he improves his accuracy and mechanics (unlike some Urban Meyer QBs cough alex smith) then yes he will be ok in the NFL.

i like how it says for the rankings of QBs that its a weak class yet he predicts 3 first rounders, and maybe 3 or 4 2nd rounders? lol thatd be a good class
I think it's a very weak Senior class at QB. However there are 4 or 5 juniors (or RS sophs) that could come out & make it a strong group.

KJW, is that your mock or someoneelses mock? If so IMO, Beanie Wells and Boone may be a little undervalued. Wells will put up some great numbers in the combine. Should be a top 15 pick with top 10 value. I'm not sure if I like Harvin or Crabtree better.
