I don’t know who the Cardinals are going to take, but I know who I don’t want them to take.  I have my eyes on a certain player, and I am really excited about the opportunity to draft him.  Just like my first selection, I know that Steelers fans are going to disagree with this pick.  But trust me, it’s a GREAT pick.

If you have suggestions about who you think I should take, please drop me a line and let me know who you would pick.  Then stop by tomorrow to see if our selections match.

  1. Donald,,

    With the 63rd pick in the 2009 NFL Draft,,the Arizona Cardinals select…..Defensive Lineman, Jarron Gilbert of San Jose State :-)

    There, how does that make you feel ? But hey, don’t worry, he’ll be taken WAY sooner than that. Also, i see you posted this Mock yesterday. but yet you have the USC QB Sanchez dropping all the way to 22 ? C;mon dude, you obviously haven’t been paying attention. He’s such a HOT itam right now that the steelers couldn’t trade up to grab him even if they offered Big Ben, troy Palumala, AND James Harrison together :-)


  2. Ronnie,
    This isn’t my mock draft. This is a bloggers mock draft. Each pick was made by a blogger representing the team in question. I actually disagreed with how the first round played out. That’s why I was left taking Fili Moala in the 1st. But I had to play my cards the way they were dealt.
