Raji falls to 25? Freeman at 8? Did you just pull names out of a hat to get this mock??? No way Raji falls that far. Denver does not let him get past 12. Freeman might not get picked until the 2nd round.

Besides Raji and Freeman, this was one of the more interesting mocks to date.

Ditto on Jeff's comments! Freeman at 8??? Liked that you had the guts to not put Stafford at the #1 pick...from there, though, you went to crazy town!

No way Staford goes to the Browns. They already have 2 starters.

Stafford to the Lions, and Sanchez (if available) to the Broncos...

Curry won't last until the 4th pick for Seattle. Further, the Seahawks need a QB to learn from frequently injured Matt Hasselback, similar to Rodgers/Favre in GB. They love Sanchez.

By no means am I a draft expert but i will bet anything that Stafford does not go to the Browns. With the money spent on one Anderson and the draft pick spent on the other Cleveland would revolt. Not saying Stafford is not better than them just that you cannot start 3 QB's in a football game.

sloppy again, dan. the eagles traded the #28 selection (and a 4th rounder) to the bills for jason peters on april 18th. stafford to the browns? why? not even a logical pick. freeman before sanchez?

This is without question the weirdest first round mock I have seen...

Neither Hakeem Nicks nor Percy Harvin in the first round...if that (unlikely) scenario actually happens, GM of the Year Jerry Angelo should make a move...

Pompei makes Todd McShay look like Nostradamus.

This is one of the poorer mock drafts Ive seen. The Tribune may want to reevaluate Pompei's job. Stafford to the Browns? Are u serious?

I think this is a gag draft, c'mon with the real one1

Multiple sources are saying its Stafford to the Lions at 1, and even if he did fall, why would the Browns pick him? Freeman won't go before Sanchez, the Bengals will probably choose between an OT and a DT, and Raji will not last until 25. Plus, I can't see the Packers taking an OT with the issues they've had on D (at least not in round 1). This isn't just a weird mock, it's stupid.

Wow, this must be the first article to elicit an unanimous response from the fans. This is a true mockery of mock drafts.

Is this an April Fool's joke? It would take awhile to list all the things wrong with this draft, but you have people from the same position rated incorrectly. Raji is going to be a top ten pick and will certainly be the first DT off the board.

stafford is a smoke screen. curry is your answer with no.1 pick ol with no.2 pick Sanchez might still be avail. espn needs house cleaning!!

you gotta be kidding me please tell me you were drunk when you made this up.let me ask you why would the jets or 49er's pass on sanchez when they desprately need a qb and why would cleveland take any qb and why would miami pass on davis,robiskie,britt,laurinait is or cushing any of these players would fill a pressing need and raji still be there at 25 ha-ha if its this easy to get paid to make up these drafts then please sign me up i'd love to get paid for sleep walking
