Share “Mock NFL Draft”

•Bears: Gosder Cherilus, T, Boston College. Bears might be tempted by Illinois running back Rashard Mendenhall, but the value is with a quality left tackle.

•Lions: Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois. Mendenhall certainly no Barry Sanders, but he's better than anything they have.

•Cardinals: Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida. Antrel Rolle has been a washout at corner and is being switched to safety. Jenkins has exceptional speed.

•Chiefs: Chris Williams, T, Vanderbilt. Chiefs have multiple needs, and one of the most glaring is along the offensive line.

•Texans: Jonathan Stewart, RB, Oregon. Has a toe injury issue, but had it corrected surgically. A very good runner and terrific pass-catcher.

•Eagles: Ryan Clady, T, Boise State. Eagles starting tackles Tra Thomas and Jon Runyan near the end. Time for a youth movement.

•Buccaneers: Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas. Ronde Barber isn't getting any younger.

•Redskins: Limas Sweed, WR, Texas. Malcolm Kelly a possibility, but slow 40 times a concern. Sweed had a wrist injury but appears fully healed.

•Cowboys: Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas. Jerry Jones is an Arkansas alum and knows plenty about Jones, the Tulsa Washington product.

•Steelers: Jeff Otah, T, Pittsburgh. Steelers also have a need at defensive line and running back, but they need a franchise-caliber left tackle.

•Titans: Philip Merling, DE, Clemson. Titans need play-making receiver, but hard to pass up value of quality defensive lineman.

•Seahawks: Lawrence Jackson, DE, USC. Might be a reach, but at this point in the round Seahawks could take a chance with a guy who had 10

sacks last season.

•Jaguars: Kentwan Balmer, DT/DE, North Carolina. Jags need to replenish the front four, and Balmer's versatility at being able to work inside and outside makes him a value pick here.

•Chargers: Brandon Flowers, CB, Virginia Tech. Chargers need depth at receiver, too, but A.J. Smith likes having surplus of corners.

•Cowboys: Kenny Phillips, S, Miami. Roy Williams is old and slow. Phillips the latest in a long line of terrific Miami safeties.

•49ers: Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville. A bit of a surprise here, and perhaps too high, but the 49ers might need to replace Alex Smith.

•Packers: Joe Flacco, QB, Delaware. Packers need depth behind Aaron Rodgers.

•Giants: Jerod Mayo, LB, Tennessee. Mayo might be off the board by this pick, and if Phillips is gone, too, S Tyrell Johnson a possibility. So are LBs Dan Connor and Curtis Lofton.
