Mock Madness 3.0

Posted Mar 31, 2010

March Madness is nearing its climax as the Final Four is only a few days away, but with the NFL draft still a few weeks out Mock Madness remains in full swing. The first 2 editions of Mock Madness have already been unveiled, so now it’s time to roll out Mock Madness 3.0 and see if anyone has added a new twist to their mock draft.

If you haven’t already seen them, be sure to check out Mock Madness 1.0 and 2.0.

Without further ado, here is Mock Madness 3.0! – Chad Reuter

A new name has been added to the mix for Vikings fans, as Reuter foresees CB Kareem Jackson as the selection at #30. Jackson measures in at 5-11, 196 pounds and played college football at Alabama. His size seems like a nice fit in the Vikings defense and he played under a defensive-minded coach – Nick Saban – at Alabama.

The other guys haven’t changed their picks from last week. Here they are:

Rob Rang – Boise State CB Kyle Wilson

Pete Prisco – Rutgers CB Devin McCourty

Clark Judge – Wilson – Wes Bunting

With so many of the prognosticators having not updated their mock drafts since last week, we found a new expert to add to the mix. Bunting, though, agrees with Chad Reuter of and projects Jackson as the Vikings pick at #30. Here’s what Bunting has to say about Jackson: “Jackson is a smooth, coordinated defensive back with a nose for the football and is an ideal fit in the Vikings’ Cover 2 defense.” – Pat Kirwan

Kirwan hasn’t updated his mock draft since last week, so there is no change to his projection of CB Patrick Robinson being the Vikings selection next month. Kirwan says that with DT Jimmy Kennedy now re-signed and plenty of other DTs expected to go early in this draft, the Vikings will address their “biggest need” by taking the former Florida State University standout.

Non-updated mock draft projections:

Don Banks ( DT Jared Odrick

Bucky Brooks ( CB Devin McCourty

Charles Davis ( S Taylor Mays

Clark Judge ( CB Kyle Wilson

Mel Kiper, Jr. ( McCourty

Todd McShay ( DT Brian Price

Pete Prisco ( McCourty

Rob Rang ( Wilson
