Buffalo Bills
Best pick: Paul Posluszny, OLB, Penn State. The Bills got a steal with this second-round pick. Posluszny lacks elite athleticism and he slipped a bit due to a knee injury a year ago, but don't doubt the career tackles leader at "Linebacker U." Posluszny will fit better inside in the Bills' 4-3 scheme and he could easily win the starting job by Week 1 of the 2007 season.

Worst pick: Marshawn Lynch, RB, Cal. Lynch is a very talented back with a strong build, above-average speed and good receiving skills. But he has too many question marks to justify selecting him No. 12 overall. Instead of paying Willis McGahee market value, the Bills will overpay for a less talented back who never carried the full load at Cal.



Miami Dolphins
Best pick: Paul Soliai, NT, Utah. The Dolphins found a perfect fourth-round fit in Soliai, a 344-pound nose tackle with enough talent to mold into a future starter.

Worst pick: Ted Ginn, WR/RS, Ohio State. Sure, Ginn has world-class speed as a receiver and return specialist. But how do the Dolphins justify spending the ninth overall pick on a future No. 2 or No. 3 receiver who could be wearing a protective boot on his injured foot for the next three months?



New England Patriots
Best pick: Trading their first-round pick (No. 28 overall). New England only made one selection on Day 1 but its best move of the weekend wound up being a trade to the 49ers. In typical Patriots fashion, they showed tremendous patience by trading out of the 28th spot of a comparatively weak draft class. In return, the Pats received the 49ers' fourth-round pick this year -- which they then traded to get Randy Moss -- and also received the 49ers' first-round selection in 2008.

Worst pick: Justise Hairston, RB, Central Connecticut. How does Hairston get drafted ahead of DeShawn Wynn (Florida), Nate Ilaoa (Hawaii), Ken Darby (Alabama) and Ahmad Bradshaw (Marshall)?



New York Jets
Best pick: David Harris, ILB, Michigan. Harris is a perfect fit as a future starting inside linebacker in the Jets' 3-4 scheme. He could be a Week 1 starter next to Jonathan Vilma.

Worst pick: Darrelle Revis, CB/RS, Pittsburgh. Revis was worth the No. 14 pick but the the Jets gave Carolina a first, second and fifth-round pick for Revis and a sixth. To put it in perspective, the Panthers used those first two traded picks on Miami LB Jon Beason and USC C Ryan Kalil.



I'm in shock that he put Revis as the worst. We won that deal by the points and we got the player we needed.

whatever bro its mcshay..i dont understand peoples obsession with TGjr being such a reach at #9. To me it's definately the wrong pick, but it is certainly not a reach considering he most likely would have gone at #10 to the texans right after. And as for saying that the jets lost too much by throwing out kalil and beason, thats a terrible argument; 1 we have a beast of a center, we have a solid lb group and we ended up with harriss. We needed a corner, we got the best corner. Now if he made the argument they got chris houston and some stud receiver or NT than ya sure I see his point, but his argument i dont buy.

I'm not a Jets fan, but I am a fan of David Harris. But come on, does anyone listen to anything McShay says anyway?

He had to pick someone to be the worst pick. He picked Harris as the good one and the other two came after the sixth round. Who else was he supposed to call the "worst".

it's not the fact that he chose darrelle, its the lame reasoning behind it. We don't need another center or linebacker with our first pick. (granted kalil im sure could be switched to gaurd, but its besides the point) If he said something more along the lines of we could have had a top tier cornerback and NT than yes i would have admitted we gave up too much for him.
