Kiper/McShay Latest Mock Draft

Hughes seemed to slip a little since they had him going to the cardinals in their last mock, but still have him going in the 1st round. I wouldn't mind to see Hughes play at either one of these places.

Indianapolis Colts

Jared Odrick

DT, Penn State

Jerry Hughes

Kiper: The Colts are very, very average along the interior of the defensive line, and Odrick is a player versatile enough to be a disruptive, pass-rushing threat in a 4-3 or an anchor in a 3-4. He has a great motor that would fit in well to the inside of players like Mathis and Freeney. A great get this late for Indy if he's around.
McShay: There is not an available offensive tackle who would fill a need here, and Hughes seems to be perfect fit for the Colts' defense. His speed and relentlessness off the edge is exactly what Bill Polian and the coaching staff are looking for to complement Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis.

New Orleans Saints

Jerry Hughes


Sean Weatherspoon

OLB, Missouri
Kiper: Hughes doesn't have great size, but he has the skills to be either a 3-4 OLB -- and thus could have his name called by New England, Arizona or a couple of others -- or he could be a fantastic pass-rusher in the mold of a Dwight Freeney. This is a guy that flat out knew how to get to QBs at the college level, regardless of what was in his path.
McShay: This is a perfect fit. The Saints lost Scott Fujita to free agency and Weatherspoon brings the same kind of leadership while providing an overall talent upgrade. Weatherspoon is a very good value at this point.

Lot of guys on the Vikings Blog I read have heavy interest in D Wash.

I love how the sports illustrated mock draft has no frogs in the first round. None of these guys know shit.
