2009 NFL Mock Draft 2.0 – Updated March 15

1Detroit Lions
Matt Stafford, QB – Georgia – They need so much, and though this is probably the wrong pick to make.  That said, it makes it all that more likely that this will be their pick.
2St. Louis Rams
Jason Smith, OT – Baylor – The releasing of Orlando Pace leaves a big hole to be filled (pun intended).
3Kansas City Chiefs
Aaron Curry, OLB – Wake Forest – The Chiefs go with the “safe” pick to improve a non-existent D.
4Seattle Seahawks
Brian Orakpo, DE – Texas – The Seahawks got their wide-receiver via free agency, so they focus their attention on the defense now.
5Cleveland Browns
Michael Crabtree, WR – Texas Tech – With Joey J gone and Donte Stallworth facing legal woes, respectively, the team really needs a second wide-out.
6Cincinnati Bengals
Eugene Monroe, OT – Virginia – The Bengals have one of the worst lines, and this pick would be a step in the right direction.
7Oakland Raiders
Jeremy Maclin, WR – Misouri – Al Davis loves speedy wide-receivers and this kid fits that bill to a tee.
8Jacksonville Jaguars
Michael Oher, OT – Mississippi – The analysts on their website like him, plus they need some youth upfront.
9Green Bay Packers
Malcolm Jenkins, CB – Ohio State – The Packers have an aging secondary, Jenkins provides just the answer.
10San Francisco 49ers
Brian Cushing, OLB – Southern Cal – The tag-team of Manny Lawson and Cushing would put the 49ers near the top of LB talent.
11Buffalo Bills
Brandon Pettigrew, TE – Oklahoma State – A bit of a reach here, but the Bills haven’t had a good tight-end in some years, this would put the offense over the top.
12Denver Broncos
B.J. Raji, DT – Boston College – The Broncos have a trend of taking Browns retreads on the d-line, this may be a move in a different direction.
13Washington Redskins
Aaron Maybin, DE – Penn State – The Redskins added Albert Haynsworth at DT, but let Jason Taylor go, and that opens up a spot that needs to be filled.
14New Orleans Saints
Vonte Davis, CB – Illinois – No matter who they bring in to address the the secondary they fail to live up to expectations, Davis can end that trend.
15Houston Texans
Louis Delmas, S – Western Michigan – The Texans have no secondary help at all, and Delmas is the best safety in a weak class.
16San Diego Chargers
Rey Maualuga, ILB – Southern Cal – Merriman and Phillips are stud OLB, who have been lacking a stub ILB to complement them.
17New York Jets
Mark Sanchez, QB – Southern Cal – With Brett Farve retiring the Jets have no one to run the offense.
18Chicago Bears
Percy Harvin, WR – Florida – Devin Hester and Brandon Lloyd are all they have, and Hester is more effective in limited action.
19Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Everette Brown, LB – Florida State – The Bucs get lucky and find Brown this late to help fill the huge holes at linebacker.
20Detroit Lions
(9-7, Pick via Cowboys)
Andre Smith, OT – Alabama – Smith’s combine nightmares are the Lions dream come true, franchise QB and OT in the same draft.
21Philadelphia Eagles
Knowshon Moreno, RB – Georgia – Buckhalter is out and Westbrook is always nicked up, you do the math.
22Minnesota Vikings
Alphonso Smith, CB – Wake Forest – Besides Winfield the rest of the corner-backs are less than ideal.
23New England Patriots
Clay Mathews, OLB – Southern Cal – Mathews has a long linage of football greatness in his blood and I’m pretty sure that the Pats would welcome the addition
24Atlanta Falcons
Tyson Jackson, DE – LSU -The Falcons need some presence on the d-line, coupled with the aging John Abraham, they could prove to be a chore for o-lines next season.
25Miami Dolphins
Clint Sintim, OLB – Virginia – The ‘Phins are in need of some young linebackers to fit their 3-4 style on D.
26Baltimore Ravens
Larry English, DE/OLB – Northern Illinois – The Ravens have found some steals in their history, and it just so happens they need some linebacker help this season.
27Indianapolis Colts
Peria Jerry, DT – Ole Miss – The Colts have lost a ton of help on the interior d-line and it was shown in this past season, everyone ran on them.
28Philadelphia Eagles
(12-4; Pick via CAR)
D.J. Moore, CB – Vanderbilt – The Eagles need some secondary help, ASAP.
29New York Giants
Hakeem Nicks, WR – North Carolina – When your star wide-out is facing gun charges you may want to start finding his replacement.
30Tennessee Titans
Evander Hood, DT – Missouri – The departure of Albert Haynesworth will be a major blow unless they address the need.
31Arizona Cardinals
Chris “Bennie” Wells, RB – Ohio State – The Edge wants out and plus they always draft running-backs every year.
32Pittsburgh Steelers
Eben Britton, OT – Arizona – It’s easier to get into the Steelers backfield than it is Sam’s Club.  Maybe the Steelers will address that fact.
