1) Miami Dolphins: Jake Long
2) St. Louis Rams: Chris Long
3) Atlanta Falcons: Matt Ryan
4) Oakland Raiders: Darren McFadden
5) Kansas City Chiefs: Glenn Dorsey
6) New York Jets: Vernon Gholston
7) New England Patriots: Leodis McCelvin
8) Baltimore Ravens: Ryan Clady
9) Cincinnati Bengals: Sedrick Ellis
10) New Orleans Saints: Keith Rivers
11) Buffalo Bills: Limas Sweed
12) Denver Broncos: Chris Williams
13) Carolina Panthers: Jeff Otah
14) Chicago Bears: Rashad Mendenhall
15) Detroit Lions: Jonathan Stewart
16) Arizona Cardinals: Dominique Rogers-Cromartie
17) Minnesota Vikings: Derrick Harvey
18) Houston Texans: Godser Cherilus
19) Philadelphia Eagles: Malcolm Kelly
20) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Aqib Talib
21) Washington Redskins: Phillip Merling
22) Dallas Cowboys: Felix Jones
23) Pittsburgh Steelers: Branden Albert
24) Tennessee Titans: DeSean Jackson
25) Seattle Seahawks: Reggie Smith
26) Jacksonville Jaguars: Quentin Groves
27) San Diego Chargers: Kentwan Balmer
28) Dallas Cowboys: Mario Manningham
29) San Francisco 49ers: Brian Brohm
30) Green Bay Packers: Pat Sims
31) New York Giants: Kenny Phillips


Picks I feel strongly about:

Miami Dolphins: I don't think Parcells likes Ryan enough to pay him #1 money. If he has to dole out #1 money, a franchise LT like Jake Long is the only pick that makes sense.

Oakland Raiders: Don't see how Al Davis could pass on McFadden.

Cincinnati Bengals: If Ellis is there, this a no-brainer. Would be a steal at 9 and fits one of their biggest needs.

Buffalo Bills: Sweed does many things very well. Not as great as athlete as past top-10 receivers, but has the tools to be a pro bowler. Blizzard game in Cleveland and red-zone struggles throughout season showed lack of height among WRs is a glaring weakness for Bills. Doubt the Bills go CB in round 1 since front four and safeties are more important for their scheme. (BTW, I am a big-time Bills fan!)

Minnesota Vikings: Strongly considered Harvey at #11 to Buffalo. Harvey seems very comparable to Gaines Adams, surprised Harvey hasn't gotten more attention.

San Diego Chargers: Balmer will provide nice insurance if Castillo or Olshansky go down.


Picks I don't feel strongly about:

I don't have a great feel for what Lions, Cardinals, Texans, Jaguars, and 49ers would like to do. Comments and suggestions on any picks are welcome!

Excellent to have a new Bills fan on the board Lloyd. Good Bills pick and I'm sure my colleagues will agree.

So does that make 4 or 5 Bills fans? =D

Not including Billingsley because you can't be a fan of two teams in the same division.

I don't like SD's pick at all. I never have liked one year wonders, especially with a guy that has bust written all over him. First of all they don't need DL depth that high in the draft because both Cesaire and Bingham have been signed to longterm deals, the team obviously likes them. DB is easily the most pressing need on the team imo and Kenny Phillips is pretty much the best pick in the draft for them.

Yatta!

Horrendous Green Bay pick as GB12 said. We traded Corey Williams because we had depth not so we could spend an even higher draft pick than the one we got in the trade on replacing him.

30) Green Bay Packers: Aqib Talib
New England Patriots: FORFEITED
31) New York Giants: Kenny Phillips

Tampa has decent depth at corner and will probably go WR.
I don't think Dallas would take Felix at #22.
Not sure what to do with Seattle.
San Fran probably won't give up on Alex Smith just yet.
Green bay doesn't have any pressing needs, but depth in the secondary would be nice.

I was beside myself with the Mario Manningham pick. Good thing you changed it.
