2000 Mock Draft Fox Sports
Team Player School Position Reason
1. Cleveland Courtney Brown Penn State DE Warrick's workout didn't go well. May trade this pick to stock up. Brown is the best player in the draft, he ran an unbelievable 4.5 in the forty.
2. Washington
(from New Orleans)
LaVar Arrington Penn State LB Washington really wants Arrington. They have upgraded their defense since the season ended.
3. Washington (from San Francisco) Chris Samuels Alabama OT The Redskins know the key to their success is keeping Brad Johnson healthy.
4. Cincinnati Thomas Jones Virginia RB If they trade Dillon, Jones will be his replacement.
5. Baltimore
(from Atlanta)
Peter Warrick Florida State WR Bad workout can be a blessing in disguise for the Ravens.
6. Philadelphia Corey Simon Florida State DT Have a lot of needs. Simon fills one.
7. Arizona Shaun Alexander Alabama RB Need a running game. Desperately hoping Thomas Jones is there for them.
8. Pittsburgh Chad Pennington Marshall QB Pittsburgh has lost confidence in Stewart. Graham will help to ease the transition to Pennington — somewhere around November.
9. Chicago Brian Urlacher New Mexico LB Need speed on defense, and Urlacher will provide that. The scouts love him.
10. Denver Plaxico Burress Michigan State WR Burress was a top five pick a month ago. He has plenty of talent, maybe Shanahan can motivate him to use it.
11. N.Y. Giants Jamal Lewis Tennessee RB Giants need a back, but if Urlacher falls, they grab him.
12. San Francisco
(through Washington from Carolina)
Shaun Ellis Tennessee DE Can help Bryant Young generate a pass rush. Would love to see Pennington fall in their lap, but might be content to take Tee Martin in the second round.
13. Tampa Bay
(from San Diego)
Bubba Franks Miami (Fla.) TE Les Steckel loves the tight end in his offense. Franks could become a star in that situation. Could go WR here.
14. Green Bay Jerry Porter West Virginia WR New coach will want impact. Porter's stock has risen with good workouts.
15. Baltimore Stockar McDougle Oklahoma OT Good player who has had some weight problems in his career.
16. N.Y. Jets
(from New England)
Chris Hovan Boston College DT Need defensive linemen that can rush the QB. Could also go with Kansas State's Darren Howard.
17. Oakland Laveranues Coles Florida State WR Turned heads at the Combine. Al Davis not worried about any attitude problems.
18. N.Y. Jets Chris McIntosh Wisconsin OL Need to replace Jumbo Elliott. Jets want to trade #'s 16 & 18 to move up. Bill Parcells loves Courtney Brown.
19. Seattle (from Dallas) Travis Taylor Florida WR Need to replace Joey Galloway.
20. Detroit Cosey Coleman Tennessee OL Best pulling guard in the draft to get out in front of James Stewart.
21. Kansas City Ron Dayne Wisconsin RB Running back by committee didn't work for Chiefs. Dayne could be the answer.
22. Seattle Keith Bulluck Syracuse LB Seattle needs help to improve the 23rd ranked defense in the NFL last season.
23. Carolina
(from Miami)
Julian Peterson Michigan State LB Replaces Micheal Barrow.
24. San Francisco (from Washington) Ahmed Plummer Ohio State CB Good man-to-man defender with speed for a team that needs help in the secondary.
25. Minnesota Rashard Anderson Jackson State CB Need help in secondary and Anderson is tall, physical and has potential.
26. Buffalo Deon Grant Tennessee S Replaces Kurt Schulz at safety.
27. Tampa Bay Todd Pinkston Southern Mississippi WR Need to upgrade the wide receiver position. The Bucs really like Pinkston.
28. Indianapolis Rob Morris Brigham Young LB Colts need a linebacker in the middle that can stuff the run.
29. Jacksonville Travis Taylor Florida WR Taylor stays in the state of Florida to learn from Smith and McCardell.
30. Tennessee Dez White Georgia Tech WR Steckel's gone, Fisher begins to open up on offense.
31. St. Louis Marvel Smith Arizona State OL The champs need depth at the offensive line. Smith and Pace would make a rather large set of bookends.
