Continuing on with the Madden Mock Draft are three teams that are on the cusp of playoff contention and are good teams in Madden with each having very different strengths. This draft pick could help to push them over the edge with all three of them probably benefiting most from a defensive addition.

Up now are the Redskins, Saints, and Texans. Remember this is more about what players would improve the teams the most in Madden 10 and beyond than it is a prediction of who will be taken in the NFL Draft.

#13 – Washington Redskins – Everette Brown – DE – Florida State

The Redskins are a solid Madden team at most positions on offense though they do have a need at OT. On defense they can use help most at end and linebacker.

With Jason Taylor gone a pass rushing DE is probably the most pressing area for improvement. Brian Cushing at OLB was a tempting option but ultimately having Brown line up at DE in the 4-3 will provide more of the pass rush to team with Albert Haynesworth on the line.

#14 – New Orleans Saints – Brian Cushing – OLB – USC

Defense needs to be the concentration with the Saints. The skill positions and offensive line are good to great for Madden. On the defensive side though they are problematic at both OLB and CB.

With Brian Cushing still available he ends up as the best choice. Teaming up with Jonathan Vilma will strengthen the middle of the defense. Vontae Davis would’ve been a good pick here as well but Cushing offered too much value to the makeup of the Saints defense

#15 – Houston Texans – Vontae Davis – CB – Illinois

If Cushing was on the board he probably would’ve been the guy here. Instead focus turns to taking his former teammate Clay Matthews at OLB or one of the other positions that could be enhanced. Primarily those would be safety, corner, or adding another wide receiver.

At one point in the process I was tempted to select Beanie Wells here. With fatigue playing a bigger part in the game being able to have a dominant two back set would add another dimension to the Texans. Also looked at taking one of the safeties but any of them would’ve been a stretch this high. Ultimately pairing Vontae Davis with Dunta Robinson at a position rarely user controlled made the most sense.

Check back in a few days for the next three picks in the Madden Mock Draft!

    Spaghetti and Friends aka. Pasta Padre what about that weak boxing game? You know it's weak so why promote it? That online game has too many flaws. Everybody in the game is from Russia and have been playing for 20 years, you pick a boxer and everybody beats him into submission over and over like it's some kind of gang initiation. Has absolutely nothing to do with boxing. It's more like WWE with atari 2600 graphics.

    Yo Spaghetti and Friends aka. Pasta Padre that boxing game you have as a sponsor absolutely SUCKS! It has nothing to do with boxing at all and is a bunch of total BS. I had more fun getting circumcised then playing that BS game. It's time to upgrade your sponsors buddy.

    What boggles my mind is how Michigan State QB Brian Hoyer is in the top five in regards to QB's but Javon Ringer, who was by far the best offensive player on State's team, is not even mentioned.

    Hoyer was decent but he is not an NFL-caliber QB…Just read his eyes and you will know where he is going to throw the ball….

    • http://www.intensedebate.com/people/okafor43 okafor43

      Well Hoyer in the top 5 just shows you how weak on a qb class this is outside of the stafford, sanchez and freeman. Not to be out done the Rb's are not too hot themselves. And as a rb it will not help your cause when you are 5'9 and 200lbs with no speed. you can develop a qb with an arm. rb no speed and small is hard to do.

    i would be rather pleased if Cushing went to my Falcons….

    unless they wanted to get Maualuga or Larinitis (spell check) and covert them to OLB but i can dream……..

    I would love to have CUSHING on the Bills but we have no DE's and E.Brown and/or Maybin will be there at 11 for us. TE,OLB,C,OG, and DB's will have to wait till later rounds………..he is not over-rated at all though.

    Im praying my Bills get Maybin in the first then go for Pettigrew in the 2nd, and the best available linebacker in the 3rd. Just praying they make good draft decisions this yeaaaar!

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/r00tabaga r00tabaga

      That would be an amazing draft if they could pull that off…I too like Maybin ALOT and Pettitgrew is an elite blocker/rec'ver but prolly won't be there for us in rd 2. Sign Peters, draft a good young DE and fill out the rest of the roster is all I can hope for….errrrrrr….and no more arrests!!!!

    Bah, I'd rather than have Cushing then Brown. So you wouldn't have to use HB Blades who is rated in the 70's in Madden @ ROLB.

    Spaghetti and Friends aka. Pasta Padre, it's time to fess up to that weak boxing game. Just be honest it's bad isn't it? Who else has tried this SmackDown Boxing with international no holds barred rules? That game has about 4 TOTAL polygons 2 bodies and 2 arms. I have better graphics on my wrist watch. You have people who break into your account just to beat you up while your sleeping. Time to end some of these weak sponsors Spaghetti and Friends aka. Pasta Padre.

    I like the Vontae Davis pick Pasta. Lots of people are overlooking him because Illinois had sort of a down year and opposing teams tried to avoid him as much as possible. Not only is he great on pass D, but he's also a hard hitter – which is rare for a corner, and I think it makes him the best in the draft at the position.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/okafor43 okafor43

      I think people are down on him cause his brother who also is a great athlete hasnt done much of anything at s.f. but i like this pick. I can also see Jenkins going here but i think he will be more of a saftey in the nfl so davis here is good

    pasta i like your picks but i think the saints will go rb with first round here. reggie injury prone hasnt done nothing but be a wr pick bush is comming off injury and the duece has been cut loose. I think they will go with Moreno here or they can go Beenie Wells also.

    I think the Texas will select a Corner and am hoping that Jenkins will be available.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/okafor43 okafor43

      Jenkins is too slow for cb in the league he will be a safety like rolle is for the cards.
