I want feedback.

PICK #1 The Dolphins Pick:
Glenn Dorsey (DT, Louisiana State)
So after a dismal 1-15 season, Bill Parcells and the Miami Dolphins are on the clock. With Tony Sporano and Paulie Walnuts-err... Jeff Ireland running the show, it will be interesting to see how the new Dolphins brass will handle this team. Needless to say, the players on the field are a large part of the reason why they finished with just one win this season. The good news, however, is that Parcells is well-known for being able to build from the bottom, which is exactly what he did when he took over in Dallas a few years ago. The Cowboys were the one seed in the NFC in large part because of Bill Parcells, who laid the foundation there when he was brought in. As far as the number one pick goes, I fully expect the Dolphins to look to move down. The unquestionable top two prospects in the draft are Darren McFadden and Glenn Dorsey, but neither would be a smart pick for the Dolphins. Why? Ronnie Brown was one of the best running-backs in the league before he got hurt, and it's unlikely that the Dolphins would want to use two top-2 picks on running-backs in the last few years, especially with how easy it is to find a good HB later in the draft or even in free agency. Why not Dorsey? Well, here it becomes a bit tricky. Glenn Dorsey is a Warren Sapp-like talent who would excel in a 4-3 scheme at the UT position. A three-technique, Dorsey is NOT an ideal fit as a 3-4 NT or DE. With that said, however, the Dolphins could choose to run strictly a 4-3 rather than switching back-and-forth, which is what they've been doing. Overall, there are a bunch of defensive philosophical decisions that must be made before the Dolphins really consider Glenn Dorsey. If I had to guess now, I'd say they'd go with Dorsey, but this is without projecting trades, and assuming that the Dolphins don't plan on using the 3-4 as much as they have been.

PICK #2 The Rams Pick:
Chris Long (DE, Virginia)
It was a long year in St. Louis, as the Rams struggled on defense and suffered from a barrage of injuries on offense. Many are predicting a LT such as Jake Long here, but I just don't see it. The Rams took Alex Barron in the first round a few years ago to not only play RT, but also to take over for Orlando Pace when he retires. Pace's days as a Ram may be over but Barron should be able to take over at LT for the future. With that said, why take a RT at #2 overall, especially when you have one of the worst defenses in the NFL? Enter Chris Long, DE of Virginia, and son of NFL legend Howie Long. Long is beast of a prospect with a great motor and everything you look for in a franchise DE. He can get after the quarterback as well as play the run, and has enjoyed a fabulous career for the Cavaliers. As a senior, Long tallied 14 sacks which was good for third in the nation. In St. Louis, Long could step in and immediately improve a Rams defensive line that already has some talent, including DT Adam Carriker, and pass-rushing DE Leonard Little.

PICK #3 The Falcons Pick:
Darren McFadden (HB, Arkansas)
Everyone knows what happened to the Falcons with Michael Vick and then Bobby Petrino, but it's time to move forward. And if there's ever a player who can help an organization move forward its Darren McFadden of Arkansas. Simply one of the best prospects in the last decade, McFadden has everything you look for in an explosive offensive weapon. He has incredible speed, a lethal stiff-arm, and can even throw the ball. McFadden can run inside, outside, and will even catch some passes. Sound familiar? The best comparison for D-Mac is probably NFL offensive rookie of the year Adrian Peterson. Because of their striking similarity, there is no chance that McFadden falls to seven this year like Peterson did last year. In fact, the only reason the Dolphins and Rams don't take him is because they both already have their franchise running-backs. The Falcons do need a QB, but with McFadden on the board, that can wait. Jerious Norwood has a history of injury and Warrick Dunn is not player he once was, so the need is there. The one thing Falcons fans need to worry about is Oakland jumping them by winning the coin-flip scenario, or a team like the Raiders or Jets moving up to 1 or 2 to grab McFadden.

PICK #4 The Raiders Pick:
Sedrick Ellis (DT, USC)
JaMarcus Russell showed some promise in his first NFL start, including a rocket touchdown throw to Jerry Porter. The Raiders could use a big-time WR, but there probably isn't one in this draft. Instead, they could look to help a struggling run defense, and DT Sedrick Ellis came into the draft season as one of the most unheralded prospects in the country, but after dominating Senior Bowl practices and the game, most know Ellis and view him as a top five talent. Ellis is right behind Glenn Dorsey when it comes to DT's, and he'd be a huge upgrade for the Raiders. A run-stuffer who can also get after the passer from the inside, Ellis recorded 8.5 sacks as a senior. Jake Long could also get some consideration here, but ultimately the defense needs to be addressed.

PICK #5 The Chiefs Pick:
Jake Long (OT, Michigan)
The Chiefs have a huge need at LT and Jake Long is the best LT prospect in the draft. Probably not as technically sound as Joe Thomas, Jake Long is still a great looking prospect with the potential to be a dominant force for years to come in Kansas City. A great run-blocker, Long could work on his footwork in pass protection to adjust to the speed of the pass-rushers in the NFL.

PICK #6 The Jets Pick:
Vernon Gholston (DE, Ohio State)
The Jets missed out on Darren McFadden thanks to a meaningless, and quite frankly, ugly, overtime win against the Chiefs in week 17. Dwayne Robertson played better at NT in the second half of the season, but the Jets didn't generate enough of a pass-rush off the edge in their 3-4 scheme. Vernon Gholston of Ohio State is the perfect 3-4 OLB prospect for Eric Mangini and the Jets. A junior who declared early, Gholston had 13 sacks this season. In the Demarcus Ware/Shawne Merriman mold, Gholston could develop into a difference-maker at the next level, and would immediately be an upgrade over Victor Hobson in New York.

PICK #7 The Patriots Pick:
Derrick Harvey (DE, Florida)
Apparently the 49ers thought they would be decent this year, and traded this pick during last year's draft hoping they'd be a playoff contender. Needless to say, they were very, very, wrong. Now the 18-1* AFC Champion Patriots have the 7th overall pick in the draft, and the most likely scenario is that they move down. If they stay put however, one possible choice here is Florida DE Derrick Harvey. An opposing QB's nightmare, Harvey sacked Ohio State QB Troy Smith three times in the BCS National Championship game as a sophomore. This year as a junior Harvey faced more double-teams and recorded just 6.5 sacks for the Gators. Speedy off the edge, Harvey is an extremely talented DE/OLB hybrid prospect who could be a big-time addition to an already stellar New England defense.

PICK #8 The Ravens Pick:
Matt Ryan (QB, Boston College)
With Brian Billick gone, John Harbaugh will have a decision to make at QB where Kyle Boller was Billick's guy, Steve McNair is 100 years old, and young Troy Smith showed signs in his limited action. The brother of a QB, Harbaugh may want to go in that direction with this pick. With no CB worth the 8th overall pick thanks to Malcolm Jenkins staying at Ohio State, and with both Gholston and Harvey off the board, a QB seems like the only logical pick here for the Ravens. Some believe Ryan is a top-flight QB prospect worthy of a top ten pick. I just don't see it. Ryan is a nice QB, but I don't know if he's the franchise player many are making him out to be. As a senior, Ryan had 31 touchdown passes, but also 19 interceptions. Not the best decision-maker, Ryan has a knack for extending the play using his feet, and can throw the ball well on the run. At Boston College, Ryan didn't have a great receiving corps, so it will be interesting to see how he does with pro wideouts in the NFL.

PICK #9 The Bengals Pick:
Keith Rivers (LB, USC)
The Bengals clearly need help on the defensive side of the ball, and would likely give large consideration to a guy like Sedrick Ellis if he were to fall. LB is another possibility, and Keith Rivers of USC is a future star at OLB. A bit undersized, Rivers has the speed and athleticism to excel in the NFL and would be an immediate upgrade at OLB for the Bengals.

PICK #10 The Saints Pick:
Leodis McKelvin (CB, Troy State)
After a magical season in 2006, the Saints started off slow and failed to recover in 2007. Drew Brees wasnít himself, especially early in the year, and problems on the offensive line in addition to an injury to Deuce McAllister meant struggles for the Saints offense. However, from a talent standpoint, the Saints have what it takes on offense, but could really use a boost on defense. If DT Sedrick Ellis were to fall to them here, the Saints would most likely take him. If not, other needs include LB and CB, and Leodis McKelvin of Troy is one of the best defensive backs in the draft. McKelvin has everything you look for in a CB. Average size, good speed, good hips, and a fluid backpedal; the only real knock on McKelvin is his inability to finish off a good play with an interception. He gets his hands on a ton of balls, but unfortunately doesnít have the interception numbers usually synonymous with a top 10 CB. However, that problem is definitely something he can work on, as his pure coverage ability is top notch. As a senior, much of his competition wisely threw away from him, resulting in two interceptions and 11 passes defended. Also a return man, McKelvin brought back three punts for touchdowns in 2007. At the Senior Bowl, McKelvin dominated the one-on-one drills during practice and likely boosted his stock, even though he did not play in the game due to a mild injury.

PICK #11 The Bills Pick:
Mike Jenkins (CB, South Florida)
Dick Jauron did a pretty good job with his team this season, and Trent Edwards and Marshawn Lynch look like the future of the Buffalo Bills. However, in order to compete with the Patriots, the Bills still need to improve, specifically at CB and WR. In this projection, the Bills go with South Floridaís Mike Jenkins. While many are high on Jenkins, he also has his share of doubters. A good combine would definitely help him a lot. Speedy and physical, Jenkins excels in man-to-man coverage and would immediately challenge for a starting spot opposite Terrance McGee in Buffalo.

PICK #12 The Broncos Pick:
Kenny Phillips (S, Miami (FL))
John Lynch is aging and Nick Ferguson could be upgraded, so safety is a need for the Broncos. If Kenny Phillips of Miami were to fall to Denver at 12, it is hard to picture them passing on him. Phillips is a spectacular physical specimen in the mold of the late, great Sean Taylor. It was sort of a down year for Phillips and the Hurricanes, but as a pro prospect, there is nothing this kid lacks. Size, speed, strength, tackling, big-play potential- it's all there. Learning from Lynch would surely help as well.

PICK #13 The Panthers Pick:
Ryan Clady (OT, Boise State)
Both starting OT's are going to be free agents this offseason, so there is a good chance the Panthers will address that position in the draft. Lucky for Carolina, there are a bunch of good OT prospects that will be available at 13. One of them is Boise State early entry Ryan Clady. Clady is a potential franchise LT with a huge frame and good athleticism. At 6í6, 320 his quick feet and decent strength make him a potential coup in the first round.

PICK #14 The Bears Pick:
Jeff Otah (OT, Pittsburgh)
Even Presidential hopeful and Illinois native Barack Obama knows the Bears number one need this offseason is QB. However, there is a chance the Bears wait until later to address the QB position, especially if they arenít high on Brian Brohm. In this projection, the Bears address their second greatest need, the offensive line. Jeff Otah of Pitt is a still-developing OT prospect with a huge frame at over 340 pounds. Otah can be a mauler in the run game but has also shown flashes of being a fleet-footed blindside protector, and could grow into a LT of the future for the Bears.

PICK #15 The Lions Pick:
Aqib Talib (CB, Kansas)
After a strong start, the Lions faded away down the stretch and find themselves in the top half of the draft once again. With a need a CB, Aqib Talib makes sense here. Talib had his national coming-out party in the Orange Bowl against Virginia Tech, and has begun to sky-rocket up draft boards. Talib is one of the top cover-men in the nation and has NFL skills, as he accounted for 4 interceptions during the season, returning one for a touchdown. Talib also played some snaps at WR, and scored four touchdowns on only eight catches. A playmaker who lacks physicality and isn't a great tackler, Talib could develop into a starting CB at the next level by playing to his strengths, and will immensely help his stock if he runs well at his pro day.

PICK #16 The Cardinals Pick:
Jonathan Stewart (HB, Oregon)
The Cardinals quietly had a nice season, finishing at 8-8 under rookie head coach Ken Whisenhunt. Kurt Warner played well all year, which raises some questions about who will be the starter next year when Matt Leinart returns from injury. A good run-stopping team, the Cardinals are in need of a pass-rusher off the edge. However, with both Gholston and Harvey off the board, the Cardinals could go in another direction. Edgerrin James was decent this season, but there are rumors circulating that he may be traded. Even if he stays, J.J. Arrington hasn't been anything special in his time in Arizona, so a change of pace back could be a possibility. Jonathan Stewart of Oregon is a surefire first round pick, as he's been a huge factor in the Pac-10 for the Ducks. Great size, speed, and kick-return ability helped Stewart become a recognized star, as he racked up 1469 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground this year as a junior.


PICK #17 The Vikings Pick:
DeSean Jackson (WR, California)
It looks like Adrian Peterson was a gigantic steal for the Vikings last year, so they'll be under a lot of pressure to build on a great draft from a year ago. With a clear need at WR, DeSean Jackson of Cal would immediately give the Vikings a second homerun threat on offense. Teamed up with the young talented Sidney Rice, Jackson is the perfect complement, a smallish speedster with excellent open-field ability. Jackson is a Ted Ginn-like prospect who's probably a bit more polished as a WR. A game-breaker, Jackson could go a lot higher than this come draft day, especially if he runs well in the 40.

PICK #18 The Texans Pick:
Rashard Mendenhall (HB, Illinois)
Like the Cardinals, the Texans quietly had a good season even with some issues at QB. Matt Schaub was ok when he was on the field, but he couldn't stay healthy. Ahman Green was a complete bust in his first year in Houston, and is not getting any younger anyway. Help in the secondary could be on the way, but in this projection they go with HB Rashard Mendenhall of Illinois. Mendenhall had an excellent junior year at Illinois, helping his team to a 9-win season including a huge upset win over Ohio State. Mendenhall is a tough runner with good vision and adequate quickness, along with the ability to get yards after contact. This season he rushed for 1526 yards and 16 touchdowns to go along with two more touchdowns receiving.

PICK #19 The Eagles Pick:
Phillip Merling (DE, Clemson)
The Donovan McNabb situation is one that will be monitored throughout the offseason. Although he seemed quite content to stay with the Eagles after a week 17 win, there still is the possibility of a trade, especially considering the Kevin Kolb pick a year ago. With needs at safety and CB, the Eagles could look to trade up and make a play for a guy like Kenny Phillips. There is also a need at DE, where Jevon Kearse and Darren Howard are pretty much cooked. Phillip Merling of Clemson isnít the most well-known prospect in this class, and he may be one of the most overlooked. At 295 pounds, Merling isnít a flashy pass-rusher, but rather a complete defensive lineman who plays with gap discipline and good leverage in run support. He also recorded seven sacks this season, including two against Boston College LT Gosder Cherilus.

PICK #20 The Buccaneers Pick:
Malcolm Kelly (WR, Oklahoma)
With Joey Galloway and Ike Hilliard aging, the Bucs have a clear need at WR. Malcolm Kelly might be the most pro-ready WR in the draft, and could get some consideration from the Bills or Vikings. Kelly enjoyed a breakout year this season as freshman QB Sam Bradford's favorite target, catching 49 passes for 821 yards and 9 touchdowns. The Bucs haven't had much success with youngsters Michael Clayton and Maurice Stovall, so it may be time to find someone else to develop. Kelly has the potential to be a special player at the next level, as he combines great size with good deep speed and most importantly, excellent hands.

PICK #21 The Redskins Pick:
Lawrence Jackson (DE, USC)
It's been a tough year in Washington after the tragic passing of star S Sean Taylor. The team has rallied behind coach Joe Gibbs and veteran backup Todd Collins and into the playoffs. Clinton Portis was sensational down the stretch, and the team definitely played inspired football on defense. The Skins could still use some youth along the defensive line, and Lawrence Jackson of USC is a top-notch DE prospect. Jackson had a great career at USC, including a senior year with 9.5 sacks. A beast off the edge, Jackson also plays the run well at around 270 pounds for the Trojans.

PICK #22 The Cowboys Pick:
Felix Jones (HB, Arkansas)
This pick goes to the Cowboys from the Browns in last years Brady Quinn trade. With Julius Jones and Marion Barber both becoming free agents, it's likely that the Cowboys will lose at least one of their horses in a successful two-back system. Barber is the one they'll likely try harder to keep, and if they lose Jones, look for them to add a solid second back to split carries with MB3, as he's been fabulous in a two-back system. If any back in this draft knows about sharing the load successfully, it's Felix Jones of Arkansas, who split carries with Darren McFadden throughout his career. Jones is lightning-quick with a great burst and the speed to get out on the edge. Also a threat as a kick-returner, Jones is a big-time playmaker.

PICK #23 The Steelers Pick:
Chris Williams (OT, Vanderbilt)
With Marvel Smith struggling and Alan Faneca on his way out, the Steelers will likely need to take more than one offensive lineman in this draft. Chris Williams of Vanderbilt is typical big-nasty who at 6í6, 320, has ideal size to play OT at the NFL level. Versatile, smart, and aggressive, Williams was the leader of the Vanderbilt offensive line and really improved his stock with a stellar senior season. At the Senior Bowl, Williams showed his mean streak with a good week of practice, highlighted by a fight during practice with Red Bryant.

PICK #24 The Titans Pick:
Limas Sweed (WR, Texas)
Vince Young struggled a bit this season but still managed to get his Titans into the playoffs. Still lacking a true #1 WR, the Titans will likely address WR early in the draft. Enter Limas Sweed, a guy Vince Young briefly crossed paths with at Texas. Sweed is a beast of a WR, and although he missed much of his senior year with an injury, still has a good chance at the first round. At 6'5, 219, Sweed is a huge red-zone threat and a match-up nightmare for smaller DB's.

PICK #25 The Seahawks Pick:
Martellus Bennett (TE, Texas A&M)
Shaun Alexander has clearly lost a step, but it's hard to envision the Seahawks bringing in a first-round running-back here with all the money they have invested in Alexander. Beyond HB, the Seahawks have needs at TE, DT, and OG, and Martellus Bennett of Texas A&M is arguably the best TE prospect in this draft. Already a good blocker, the extremely athletic Bennett played some basketball for the Aggies so he has some Antonio Gates in him. Not incredibly productive at Texas A&M, Bennett is still somewhat raw but could potentially develop into a pro-bowl caliber TE. Teamed up with Matt Hasselbeck in Seattle, Bennett could do some real damage in the NFL.

PICK #26 The Jaguars Pick:
Calais Campbell (DE, Miami (FL))
David Garrard had an amazing year in Jacksonville, as Fred Taylor, Maurice Jones-Drew, and a hard-hitting defense saved Jack Del Rio's job. DE is probably their greatest need, and Calais Campbell of Miami Fl. fits in here. Campbell didn't have a dominant junior year with the Hurricanes, but is still considered a high first round pick by some. Campbell combines great size with excellent athleticism and would immediately give the Jaguars an athletic young pass-rushing threat off the edge, as well as someone who can play the run on the outside.

PICK #27 The Chargers Pick:
Curtis Lofton (LB, Oklahoma)
Give credit to Norv Turner. After a rocky start, he's brought the Chargers to the top of the AFC West and into the playoffs for the second straight year. With Chris Chambers now on board, the Bolts might want to look at defense in the first round this year and ILB is a need. Curtis Lofton of Oklahoma is a beast of a prospect with some similar qualities to DROY Patrick Willis. Not as talented as Willis, Lofton has great speed and can play sideline to sideline. As a junior he recorded a whopping 157 tackles, and would immediately make a difference in the interior of the San Diego linebacking corps. Protected by guys like Igor Olshanksy, Jamal Williams, and Luis Castillo, Lofton could put up incredible tackle numbers with the Chargers.

PICK #28 The Cowboys Pick:
James Hardy (WR, Indiana)
The Cowboys receivers are all getting up there in age, so it might be time to infuse a little youth. James Hardy of Indiana is one of the best pure WRís no one is talking about. A red-zone monster, the 6í7 Hardy is a mismatch for any defensive back in college or the proís. Indiana isnít a high-profile team, so if you didnít catch Hardy this season, the stats say a lot: 74 catches, 1075 yards, and a whopping 16 touchdowns. Hardy failed to score a td in only ONE game this season, a loss at Wisconsin. Anything under a 4.6 at the combine would really help Hardyís stock.

PICK #29 The 49ers Pick:
Brian Brohm (QB, Louisville)
Here is the first huge head-scratcher of this installment of the CDS mock draft. The rationale behind this projection is simple- I donít have any faith in Alex Smith as a starting QB in this league, and I donít think the 49ers do either. If a prospect like Brian Brohm were to fall to the Niners here, it would be tempting for them to pull the trigger. Letís face it, the 2005 draft was not as rich as many in recent years, and the 49ers were stuck in a tough place when Matt Leinart decided to return to USC. They probably shouldíve taken Braylon Edwards but hey- hindsight is 20/20. Now, they are faced with quite a dilemma. They have a lot of money invested in a young QB who in his brief NFL career hasnít shown much progress. Do they cut their losses and move on with a guy like Brohm if he falls to them? I think they might. Remember, the last two drafts, a senior QB (Matt Leinart, Brady Quinn) fell farther than they were initially projected to go right before the draft. Brohm could be that guy this year.

PICK #30 The Packers Pick:
Antoine Cason (CB, Arizona)
Although they fell a bit short this year, there is a bright future in Green Bay. With big-play young guys in Ryan Grant and Greg Jennings, an heir-apparent to Favre in Aaron Rodgers, a good young leader in Mike McCarthy, and a solid young defense, there is no reason to think the Packers won't be contenders for years to come. As for needs going into next year, the Pack could use some depth behind Al Harris and Charles Woodson at CB, and a guy like Antoine Cason of Arizona would be a great addition. If you followed college football at all for the past two seasons then you know what Cason is capable of. During big Pac-10 contests, Cason has ruined the BCS dreams of Cal and Oregon in the last two seasons respectively, by taking a pick to the house to propel Arizona to victory. A high-character player, Cason has good speed and coverage ability, as well as some talent in the return game.

PICK #31 The Patriots Pick:
FORFEITED PICK (P, No College)

PICK #32 The Giants Pick:
Dan Connor (LB, Penn State)
Congratulations to the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants and their fans. As the World Champs move forward to the offseason, moves can still be made. Besides upgrading the dreadful Eli Manning at QB (ladies and gentlemen, the New York Media!), the Giants have potential needs at OLB, CB, and S. In this projection, they go with Dan Connor of Penn State, whose draft stock has already seen a similar rise and fall to that of former teammate Paul Posluszny. Connor is a solid LB prospect with a bright pro future. With the ability to play inside or outside, Connor brings everything you look for in a leader on and off the field. As a senior, he recorded 145 tackles for the Nittany Lions.

If DRC is on the board, I would love for him to be a Giant. And in the 2nd, WR isn't a pressing need, so someone like Ali Highsmith might be more worthy of the pick.

1.) Mike Jenkins --Great Pick
2.) Adarius Bowman -- Great Pick
3.) Ali Highsmith -- I like Philip Wheeler 10x more. I'd MUCH rather take him here.
3.) Martin Rucker -- Great Pick

This would be a perfect first 3 rounds, if you just replace Wheeler for Highsmith.

Good point. DRC might be a better pick than Connor there. The EB pick is more like a BPA selection, but the more I think about it, the less I like it. Even though Moss sucks, they still have Steve Smith to step in for Toomer when he's done and of course the legend David Tyree, who is probably the best WR in the league not named Mandy Ross.

Good point. DRC might be a better pick than Connor there. The EB pick is more like a BPA selection, but the more I think about it, the less I like it. Even though Moss sucks, they still have Steve Smith to step in for Toomer when he's done and of course the legend David Tyree, who is probably the best WR in the league not named Mandy Ross.

Well, David Tyree is way overhyped, but we still have 3 capable receivers in Plax, Toomer, and Smith, so we could always just get a WR in the sixth or so and see how he pans out.

its an ok giants draft...personally i would give us dajuan morgan who is a total steal @ our 2nd round pick. hes called the best safety in the draft by some and that is our #1 priority

wow... a first round corner we don't need and a tight end while it's not a priority... fantastic.

I'm not sold on Davis being able to stand up and cover people, good 1st and 3rd round picks but I rather have Ellis or Wheeler in the 2nd

ILB isn't a need for the Chargers. Cooper and Wilhelm both played well in their first year's of starting and their is excellent depth with Waters, Siler and Dobbins. Both starters were given longterm contracts and the team is excited about the development of the backups.

Reggie Smith would be a great selection for the Chargers because we have a gaping hole at NB since Florence is leaving. He would be groomed to start at safety in a year or so since Hart is getting a little old. Rodgers-Cromartie would also be a good pick.

i like the draft for the giants. the ideas at least

connor is a pretty good pick. id rather have DRC.

i like bennett alot. the only problem is he is extremely similar to smith. i would consider him, but id also consider devin thomas who is more of an upside guy but is a little bigger and faster. he might be more of an impact player

Lee in the 3rd is GREAT. if we didnt take a CB earlier, that would be a fantastic pick

I LOVE the Eagles draft. We get three solid players and address some depth concerns. One of the best Eagles Mocks i've seen so far, excellent work boss.

I would consider the eagles pick very questionable.

I understand the logic behind the Raiders second pick but I personally feel Doucet is a tad bit overrated and wouldnt give us anything different than what we already have at receiver. If we were to go receiver there a playmaker who could stretch the defense like Manningham or Thomas should be considered.

not a huge fan of the Rachal and Finley picks at those spots. I'd rather have Nicks at 58, then take either Rucker, Wheeler, or Flacco at 65.

Love the Cromartie pick, dont like the Dorsey pick.

Good Jets mock assuming we get a few offensive linemen in free agency.

Charles Godfrey in the third over Tribble and it's not bad for New England. I love your effort!

Devin Thomas isnt lasting until the 3rd rd, he's on the cusp of the 1st now and his combine is only going to help...you should move him up about 30 spots somewhere in your mock
