I'm a big fan of Dan Connor and I think he will climb up there after workouts.

Thanks.

i dont mind brohm falling. i dont see what the huge difference is between him and guys who will be available several rounds later like woodson and flacco. he might have a higher floor but i dont think thats worth an extra round higher....glad you didnt give him to the bears, lol

Cason is a great player, good playmaker (won the Thorpe) i think he is a first round talent but alot of scouts think otherwise, but alright pick at 31. A- Pick

I think I like Mike Jenkins better at 11...

Not to shabby in general.

As long as Cason doesn't embarrass himself in the 40 time, I like him to the Giants. Heck, taking the Thorpe award winner two years in a row can't be a bad thing, right?

After all, Aaron Ross certainly panned out beyond all expectations.

Brad Childress doesn't believe in drafting WR's in round 1. Even if he did I don't see why they would take Mario Mannigham over both Desean Jackson and Malcolm Kelly.

You are Crazy, Chris.

Btw, I think Manningham will rise up on many boards and might be a better fit for a WCO than Kelly and Jackson. I see Jackson more of a deep threat, not made for short routes. And who says Childress doesn't believe in drafting first round WR (serious question, if he ever said so, lighten me)? I think Mario and Sydnney would be great for Tarvaris... or whoever your QB will be.

I can guarantee that the Vikings don't go reciever in the first. In light of the recent Kenechi Udeze move I believe that unless Kenny Phillips falls to us we are going to be taking a DE in the first. Pass Rush is the Vikings biggest problem right now and until we adress that we are going nowhere. The way you draft fell Derrick Harvey would be our pick. He is one of the top pass rushers in the draft, if not the top. I just think there is no way we go WR over DE in the first and I honestly believe we won even be taking a WR in the second. We have enough young talent there, we need experiance and that will be done through Free Agency.

I like all 3 projected wr's in this draft but for Minnesota i just cant see it. With the news of Udeze, and our lack of pass rushing. We need to get a pass rusher before Receiver. Defenses help you win and if we cant stop the pass we cant win and we need a Quick/Fast DE to come in and help us. Harvey would be a good pick for us.

1. balmer might be too high especially if phillips is still on the board
2. otah will probably go in the first, but the williams and cherilus picks fit so i don't really know where he would go
3. i don't have a problem with the cason pick but i don't think the giants will passon an OLB and pick someone they might be able to get in the second
overall this is a good draft, very realistic for the most part

Rivers is good, but I would prefer a cornerback.

Decent pick for Denver, DT is a big need. But i think Balmer is a bit of a reach there, still at least you didn't give us a DE. lol

I believe that will depend on wether Samuel leaves or not. For now he hasn't left so that is the pick.

I think Balmer might rise up with his workouts.

I wish you guys draft the worst punter available.

The Cards do need a Corner, but is Aqib Talib the best CB available? More over, does he fit our need of a future #1 CB who can go up against elite WRs and not get consistently toasted.

I feel his lack of speed means that whilst Talib could be a great #2, he would struggle as the #1 CB in largely man to man schemes, which is what Arizona like to run to get maximum pressure on the QB through various exotic, crazy blitzes.

Cherilus is a great selection for the Chargers but I lean a little more towards Smith.

If the Giants picked Cason in the first I would throw a remote at the TV. Cason is right where he should be in most mocks now, in the 3rd round. He is slow and we need a speedy corner opposite Ross. I would prefer Porter or Lee in that instance.

I definately wouldnt say he belongs in the 3rd round. Mid to late 2nd is as far as he should fall. But i do agree we need a speedy CB opposite Ross. I do see great potential in both Porter and Lee, but id only like to see Cason, Lee, or Porter if we trade down.
