Mock Draft & Prop Odds

The 2009 NFL Draft kicks off Saturday, April 25 and continues through Sunday, April 26. We’ve compiled a mock draft of the first round, along with some 2009 NFL Draft odds and player props.

Bet 2009 NFL Draft Player Prop Odds

Below is our complete mock draft of the first round for the 2009 NFL Draft. We’ve also included some player prop odds from oddsmakers at online sports book Sportsbook.com.

1. Detroit Lions: Matthew Stafford, QB, Georgia

The Lions will look at Baylor offensive tackle Jason Smith and Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry at this spot, but the bottom line is that they need a quarterback and Stafford is the top rated signal caller in this draft.

Which player will be drafted with the first overall pick?

Aaron Curry +1000

Eugene Monroe +600

Jason Smith +300

Matthew Stafford –500

2. St. Louis Rams: Jason Smith, OT, Baylor

The Rams need to replace offensive tackle Orlando Pace, who was released this offseason. Smith is the top rated offensive tackle in this draft and seems like a great fit for St. Louis at this spot.

Which player will be drafted with the second overall pick?

Aaron Curry +200

Brian Orakpo +1000

Eugene Monroe +450

Jason Smith –250

Michael Crabtree +2500

3. Kansas City Chiefs: Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia

There is a lot of speculation that the Chiefs will take outside linebacker Aaron Curry with this pick, but after acquiring quarterback Matt Cassel from the Patriots, GM Scott Pioli needs to protect him with an offensive tackle.

Who will be the third player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

Aaron Curry 2/3

B J Raji 14/1

Michael Crabtree 11/2

Eugene Monroe 5/2

Jason Smith 11/4

4. Seattle Seahawks: Mark Sanchez, QB, USC

The Seahawks are committed to Matt Hasselbeck as their starter, but he’s 33 years old and coming off a back injury. Sanchez can learn the ropes under Hasselbeck for a year or two before he’s ready to start.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the fourth player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

Aaron Curry 11/2

Eugene Monroe 9/4

Michael Crabtree 7/4

Mark Sanchez 3/2

Brian Orakpo 10/1

5. Cleveland Browns: Aaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest

The biggest need for the Browns is at outside linebacker and Curry would be an absolute steal if he fell this far.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the fifth player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

Jeremy Maclin 11/1

Brian Orakpo 12/5

B. J Raji 4/1

Michael Crabtree 13/10

Eugene Monroe 5/1

6. Cincinnati Bengals: Andre Smith, OT, Alabama

The Bengals have a major need at offensive tackle and would love to replace Levi Jones on the left side. Smith has had a tumultuous past couple of months leading up to the draft, but his talent would be hard for Cincinnati to pass up on.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the sixth player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

Andre Smith 3/2

Brian Orakpo 4/1

B J Raji 8/1

Jeremy Maclin 6/1

Eugene Monroe 4/1

Aaron Maybin 12/1

7. Oakland Raiders: Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech

Al Davis loves flashy talent and Crabtree has one of the highest ceilings of any prospect in the draft. If taken here, Crabtree would give quarterback JaMarcus Russell a true No. 1 target.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the seventh player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

Michael Crabtree 2/1

Jeremy Maclin 2/1

Eugene Monroe 7/2

Andre Smith 7/2

Brian Orakpo 7/1

8. Jacksonville Jaguars: B.J. Raji, DT, Boston College

After signing Torry Holt recently, the Jaguars don’t have as much of a need for a wide receiver as they did before the signing. Raji would make a great pair with John Henderson on the interior of the Jags’ defensive line.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the eighth player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

Mark Sanchez 5/2

Jeremy Maclin 2/1

Michael Crabtree 7/2

Brian Orakpo 7/1

Andre Smith 7/2

9. Green Bay Packers: Tyson Jackson, DE, L.S.U.

The Packers would love it if Raji fell to them here, but since he’s off the board at No. 8, they can address their need for an end in their new 3-4 defensive scheme. Jackson isn’t a pass-rusher, but he’s stout against the run.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the ninth player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

B J Raji 21/20

Brian Orakpo 15/4

Aaron Maybin 5/1

Tyson Jackson 4/1

Robert Ayers 12/1

10. San Francisco 49ers: Brian Orkapo, DE, Texas

Orkapo is the best pass-rusher in the draft and as long as he can make a switch to outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, he’ll be a good fit for Mike Singletary’s defense.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the tenth player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

Brian Orakpo 2/1

Aaron Maybin 7/4

Tyson Jackson 9/2

Malcolm Jenkins 10/1

Jeremy Maclin 10/1

11. Buffalo Bills: Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss

After trading offensive tackle Jason Peters to the Eagles, the Bills have a massive hole at left tackle. Oher’s stock has risen over the past couple months and he would be a solid chose at No. 11.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the eleventh player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

Aaron Maybin 2/1

Tyson Jackson 4/1

B J Raji 6/1

Andre Smith 3/1

Michael Oher 7/2

12. Denver Broncos: Robert Ayers, DE, Tennessee

The Broncos would love to get more bulk on their defensive line now that they’re switching to a 3-4 and Ayers would be a solid fit as a run-stuffer.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the twelfth player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

Mark Sanchez 5/2

Knowshon Moreno 8/1

Chris Wells 4/1

Tyson Jackson 2/1

Robert Ayers 5/1

13. Washington Redskins: Aaron Maybin, DE, Penn State

After releasing Jason Taylor this offseason, the Redskins have a major need for a quality pass-rusher and although his size is a concern, Maybin flashed the ability to get to the quarterback at PSU.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the thirteenth player drafted in the 2009 NFL draft?

Robert Ayers 11/2

Michael Oher 2/1

Tyson Jackson 5/1

Aaron Maybin 7/2

Andre Smith 9/4

14. New Orleans Saints: Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State

Always in search of cornerback help, the Saints lock onto Jenkins, who had a rough showing at the scouting combine but was also once considered a top 10 prospect.

2009 NFL Draft - Total Big 10 Players Drafted in the 1st Round

Big 10 Players Drafted in 1st RD Over 4.5 (-120)

Big 10 Players Drafted in 1st RD Under 4.5 (-120)

Bet 2009 NFL Draft Player Prop Odds

15. Houston Texans: Chris “Beanie” Wells, RB, Ohio State

The Texans have other needs to address, but Wells is the best running back prospect in the draft and would make a nice 1-2 combo with speedster Steve Slaton.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the first Running Back drafted?

Knowshown Moreno +150

Chris Wells –190

16. San Diego Chargers: Rey Maualuga, LB, USC

The Chargers go with the best player on the board in Maualuga, who could turn out to be a great two-down ‘backer at the next level.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the first USC linebacker drafted?

Brian Cushing 20/31

Rey Mauluga 29/20

Clay Matthews 19/4

17. New York Jets: Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri

The Jets released Laveranues Coles earlier this offseason, which makes wide receiver one of their top needs. If Maclin falls, he’s the best receiver on the board but if he’s gone, we expect Darrius Heyward-Bey of Maryland to be the Jets’ pick at No. 17. (If they don’t trade up for USC quarterback Mark Sanchez, that is.)

2009 NFL Draft - Which Player Will Get Drafted 1st

Michael Crabtree (Texas Tech)

Jeremy Maclin (Missouri) +200

18. Denver Broncos (from Chicago): Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia

The Broncos have more pressing needs on defense and do have a plethora of running backs already on the roster, but we don’t think new head coach Josh McDaniels will pass on the opportunity to take an offensive player with one of Denver’s first round picks.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the first Running Back drafted?

Knowshown Moreno +150

Chris Wells –190

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois

The Bucs are scrapping their Cover 2 scheme and will play more man-to-man coverage next season under new head coach Raheem Morris. Davis is the best man-to-man prospect in the draft.

2009 NFL Draft - Total Big 10 Players Drafted in the 1st Round

Big 10 Players Drafted in 1st RD Over 4.5 (-120)

Big 10 Players Drafted in 1st RD nder 4.5 (-120)

20. Detroit Lions: Phil Loadholdt, OT, Oklahoma

Some believe Loadholdt isn’t a first rounder and while that very well may be true, offensive tackles are always taken higher than they are projected to go. If the Lions grab Matthew Stafford at No. 1, they’ll look to protect him with a big offensive tackle with this pick, which certainly fits Loadholdt.

2009 NFL Draft - Total Big 12 Players Drafted in the 1st Round

Big 12 Players Drafted in 1st RD Over 5.5 (-135)

Big 12 Players Drafted in 1st RD Under 5.5 (-105)

21. Philadelphia Eagles: Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Oklahoma State

The Eagles recently traded for Jason Peters (formerly of Buffalo), so their need at left tackle has been filled. Tight end is one of their more pressing needs, although if they trade for Tony Gonzalez then obviously Pettigrew will be passed on.

2009 NFL Draft - Total Big 12 Players Drafted in the 1st Round

Big 12 Players Drafted in 1st RD Over 5.5 (-135)

Big 12 Players Drafted in 1st RD Under 5.5 (-105)

22. Minnesota Vikings: Peria Jerry, DT, Ole Miss

The Vikings could go with a wide receiver like Darrius Heyward-Bey here or even a center like Alex Mack. But after Pat Williams and Kevin Williams, their defensive tackle position is thin and Pat Williams is set to turn 36 this year. Jerry gives them a pass-rush threat in the middle of their defensive line.

2009 NFL Draft - Total SEC Players Drafted in the 1st Round

SEC Players Drafted in 1st RD Over 7.5 (+160)

SEC Players Drafted in 1st RD Under 7.5 (-200)

23. New England Patriots: Brian Cushing, LB, USC

Rumor has it that the Patriots are in love with a cornerback, which is exactly why we have them taking a linebacker in Cushing (if he falls). Never believe anything coming out of New England around draft time.

NFL Draft -April 25 -Who will be the first USC linebacker drafted?

Brian Cushing 20/31

Rey Mauluga 29/20

Clay Matthews 19/4

24. Atlanta Falcons: Louis Delmas, S, Western Michigan

The Falcons have a ton of holes to fill on the defensive side of the ball, but Delmas is the best safety - which isn’t a very deep class this year - prospect in the draft.

25. Miami Dolphins: Alphonso Smith, CB, Missouri

The Dolphins don’t have a ton of huge needs, but adding more depth at cornerback with receivers Randy Moss, Wes Welker and Terrell Owens in the division would be a plus.

26. Baltimore Ravens: Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Maryland

The Ravens could use a cornerback, but if Heyward-Bey fell this far it would be tough for them to pass. This is assuming of course that they don’t trade this pick for Anquan Boldin.

2009 NFL Draft - Number of Wide Receivers+Tight Ends taken in Round One

Wide Receivers+Tight Ends Over 6 (-150)

Wide Receivers+Tight Ends Under 6 (+110)

27. Indianapolis Colts: Evander “Ziggy” Hood, DT, Missouri

The Colts would love it if Jerry fell to this spot, but with him coming off the board earlier in this mock, Hood is a nice fallback. The Colts need to get more bulk on their defensive line.

2009 NFL Draft - Total Big 12 Players Drafted in the 1st Round

Big 12 Players Drafted in 1st RD Over 5.5 (-135)

Big 12 Players Drafted in 1st RD Under 5.5 (-105)

28. Buffalo Bills (from Carolina through Philadelphia): Michael Johnson, DE, Georgia Tech

Johnson’s stock was seemingly soaring a couple weeks ago, but now he’s considered a second or even third round pick. We have the athletic marvel going here to Buffalo, who would rather have Brandon Pettigrew fall to this spot but will take Johnson as a nice fallback.

2009 NFL Draft - Total ACC Players Drafted in the 1st Round

ACC Players Drafted in 1st RD Over 5 (-160)

ACC Players Drafted in 1st RD Under 5 (+120)

29. New York Giants: Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers

If the Giants don’t trade for Cleveland’s Braylon Edwards as expected, they’ll need a receiver to replace the recently released Plaxico Burress in their offense.

2009 NFL Draft - Number of Wide Receivers+Tight Ends taken in Round One

Wide Receivers+Tight Ends Over 6 (-150)

Wide Receivers+Tight Ends Under 6 (+110)

30. Tennessee Titans: Darius Butler, CB, Connecticut

The Titans could use a cornerback for depth and for an eventual replacement for long-time veteran Nick Harper.

31. Arizona Cardinals: Rod Brace, DT, Boston College

The Cardinals don’t have a ton of needs coming off their Super Bowl appearance, but Brace would give them some much needed depth and bulk on their defensive line.

32. Pittsburgh Steelers: Duke Robinson, G, Oklahoma

The Steelers’ offensive line meshed well towards the end of the season, just in time for them to win their second Super Bowl in less than five years. But Robinson would be an excellent addition and although he’s slated to go in the second round, he wouldn’t be available when Pittsburgh comes back on the clock with their next pick.

2009 NFL Draft - Total Big 12 Players Drafted in the 1st Round

Big 12 Players Drafted in 1st RD Over 5.5 (-135)

Big 12 Players Drafted in 1st RD Under 5.5 (-105)
