  • Five Rounder, come and get it.

    I'm going to try to get the last two rounds finished soon, but this was harder than I thought It was going to be.

    If I left some players out, kindly let me know and i'll edit some selections to fit them in. Also, note, that towards the end it was really tedious to scroll back through the eleven pages that this thing took up on microsoft word, so if there are double selections or two positions taken consecutively for you team, I apologize.

    Alright, here it is.

    1. Miami Dolphins :Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU. I've gone between Dorsey, Chris Long, and Darren McFadden more times than I can count. And while I don't exactly agree that Dorsey is the clear cut option at number one, I believe that Long and McFadden are not even more so. I understand the theory of best player available (which would be McFadden) but there are just too many holes to fill on this team to waste a pick and a lot of money on a running back that would then give Miami three capable runners. Dorsey is the highest rated defensive prospect and the Dolphins will be glad to have him.

    2. St. Louis Rams: Chris Long, DE, Virginia. By taking Adam Carriker in last years draft, and then taking Chris Long in this years, the Rams would have the makings of one of the best young defensive lines in football. The best part about it is that if they do indeed make the transition to a 3-4 scheme, which i've heard they are considering, Carriker is a great NT and Long would be able to hold down one DE slot. The pick makes too much sense.

    3. New England Patriots (from San Francisco): Malcom Jenkins, CB, Ohio State. The temptation of Darren McFadden will hold the Patriot's attention for most of the offseason. However, with the very true reality that they might lose Asante Samuel, along with most of their secondary, makes this pick the true combination of need and value. I do think the Patriots will trade out with a franchise that desperately wants McFadden, but if that scenario doesn't present itself, the Pats will take the 6'1” 208 lb corner with 4.3 speed.

    4. New York Jets: Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas. At #4, it's going to be very difficult for New York to pass on McFadden. However, with Chris Long being absent from the board already, I think the decision is made a little easier. McFadden can come in immediately and keep some pressure off of Kellen Clemens. Explosive player, and this years Adrian Peterson.

    5. Atlanta Falcons: Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC. Could be the biggest surprise in the top 10 of this draft. To me, Ellis and Dorsey grade out very close to one another and the Falcons would only have to pay #5 money to him. Matt Ryan, and Brian Brohm are two other choices that are very real possibilities. However, I feel like the depth of the quarterback position is significant this year and with two second rounders the Falcons can address it then. Coleman and Ellis would be a nasty duo on the interior of that Falcons defense.

    6. Oakland Raiders: Calais Campbell, DE, The U. With Dorsey, McFadden, Ellis, and Long all gone by this spot the Raiders have no problem taking Campbell. He's the last player in the top tier of this defensive line class and he fills and immediate need on that side of the ball. Jake Long is a possibility, but with the depth of OT in this year's draft, I think they can afford to wait.

    7. Kansas City Chiefs: Jake Long, OT, Michigan. Although not as ginormous as Loadholt, at 6'7” 315 lbs. Long can easily get the job done. I've watched him play his entire career at Michigan and along with others, felt he was easily a top 10 pick if he came out last year. A real leader, has a mean streak, and can help this KC offensive line get going in the right direction.

    8. Baltimore Ravens: Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College. The more I think about it, if Jenkins was available here, I think the Ravens would take him over any of the quarterbacks in this class. With that said, Jenkins is already taken and I think Matt Ryan is the most pro-ready of the top quarterbacks. He has all the physical tools and I think he'll make a fine QB.

    9. Philadelphia Eagles: Kenny Phillips, S, The U. I think Gholston deserves a look here but Phillips can come in right away and make an immediate impact for this once proud Philly secondary. And all the safeties that come out of Miami just seem like they were born to dominate in the pros.

    10. Cincinnatti Bengals: James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State. Campbell and Ellis are both gone at this point so the Bengals gladly take the best LB prospect in the draft. He has everything you could ask for on the defensive side of the ball, and then some. Great instinctive player, has a mean streak, and puts people down in a hurry. Will give the Bengals some moxy on defense.

    11. Chicago Bears: Andre Woodson, QB, Kentucky. I do not believe that Grossman, or Griese will start for the Bears next season which would indicate that they select a signal caller in April. With that said, I think they'll opt for the more dynamic player in Woodson over Brian Brohm. Woodson can provide that big play type of player that the Bears offense has been without for some time.

    12. Carolina Panthers: Reggie Smith, S/CB, Oklahoma. The preseason pick for Big 12 defensive player of the year, Smith has the ability to play anywhere in the secondary. Brian Brohm, or an offensive tackle such as Jeff Otah, Ryan Clady, or Phillip Loadholt could all be possibilities at this spot, but safety has been ignored for some time now and Smith puts an end to it.

    13. Washington Redskins: Vernon Gholston, DE/OLB, Ohio State. The third Ohio State player taken in the top 15 selections gives the Redskins defense some flexibility up front. I think he best fits as an outside linebacker in a 3-4, but I also think that pairing him up with Andre Carter would give the Redskins a very aggressive rush on the edges. Gholston would also have the ability to move around along the front seven where ever a mismatch could be made.

    14. New Orleans Saints: Dan Connor, LB, Penn State. While I have Laurinaitis graded out higher, as I'm sure many people do, I think that Connor could be the ball hawk of this class that Willis was for last year's group. Just the latest hard nosed linebacker to come out of Linebacker U, and will give the Saints an aggressive boost on the defensive side of the ball.

    15. Houston Texans: Jonathon Stewart, RB, Oregon. In every other mock of mine, I keep hitting home the point that Schaub needs some protection up front in order for the Texans to really go somewhere. Also, with Jake Long being the only tackle taken at this point in the draft, a franchise is going to have to stop the slide for guys like Clady and Otah. However, after thinking it over, Stewart can take as much pressure off of a quarterback as a new tackle. And a good LT can be had later in the draft, where as a running back with Stewart's skill set can not.

    16. Detroit Lions: Ryan Clady, OT, Boise State. Ta-Dah! A tackle, finally. I'm just as thrilled as the rest of you. The Lions are in desperate need of some help up front and Clady is the type of tackle that can provide it.

    17. Denver Broncos: Erin Henderson, LB, Maryland. I just read that Rey Maualuga will be returning to USC for his final season which, in my opinion, makes Henderson the best MLB prospect in the draft. You can disagree or agree, but after ten pounds (which is easy considering the workouts these guys must go through) by training camp, Henderson will be in that 245-250 range. I think that would eliminate any concerns about him being undersized for Broncos fans.

    18. Arizona Cardinals: Quentin Groves, OLB, Auburn. Corner is an option here as well but they can be had in the second round. Groves is the second rated tweener in this draft right behind Gholston, and the Cardinals could use a boost in their continued transition to a 3-4.

    19. Tennessee Titans: Desean Jackson, Wr, California. Malcom Kelly makes a lot of sense here as well, but I just think the explosiveness of Jackson will attract the Titans. And if they for some reason, decide to cut ties with Pac-Man Jones, Jackson would be able to be the electrifying return threat they've come to love.

    20. Minnesota Vikings: Phil Loadholt, OT, Oklahoma. Call me crazy, but I think the Vikings take big Phil right here. Mckinnie and Hutchinson keep things rolling on the left and I think Loadholt can come in and dominate the right. With his massive frame he's built to lean on people in the running game. I would imagine that Adrian Peterson with some Chester Taylor sprinkled in would be damn near unstoppable running behind Mckinnie Hutchinson Loadholt and company. Not to mention shoring up the offensive line can only make Tarvaris Jackson better (and he's starting to look like an NFL qb, so much in fact that it's the main reason I don't have them taking Brian Brohm right here).

    21. Buffalo Bills: Malcom Kelly, WR, Oklahoma. The bigger framed target that can compliment the speed of Lee Evans. Trent Edwards has the franchise back behind him, the deep threat in Lee Evans, and the guy who can work the middle of the field in Malcom Kelly. Watch out, the Bills will be explosive.

    22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Adarius Bowman, WR, Oklahoma State. I don't think that the injury he suffered will hurt his draft stock too much. I do think that it will allow the Bucs to sign him to a significantly cheaper deal though. Jeff Otah was a player I had already written down in this spot, but the second guessing got the best of me and I went WR. I just can't see a whole lot being wrong with that offensive line the way Earnest Graham keeps churning out big time games.

    23. San Diego Chargers: Jeff Otah, OT, Pitt. I think inside linebacker needs to be addressed soon on draft day but the value isn't there. Instead they'll go for one of the highest rated tackles in the draft and make Ladanian's life that much easier.

    24. Dallas Cowboys (from Cleveland): Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona. It's been well documented especially on this site, that the corners in Dallas aren't getting any younger. With two picks in the first round, and still retaining their second rounder, Dallas has the luxury of ensuring that they get one of the best Corners in this draft with their first selection. Cason can come in on day one and play in their nickel package, and by the end of the season he will be starting opposite Newman.

    25. Seattle Seahawks: Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois. Yes, I have him declaring for the draft and there's no way he gets past Seattle. The Hawks are in desperate need of a sure thing at RB and Shaun Alexander has proven that he is not it. Maurice Norris is a nice back to have on your team, but he's not going to be the man for 16+ games.

    26. Pittsburgh Steelers:Michael Oher, OT/OG, Ole Miss. Alan Faneca is almost assuredly gone in free agency, and Oher has the ability to play guard as well as tackle. It would enable the Steelers to have some flexibility up front, and to make sure that fast Willie and Big Ben don't suffer from Faneca leaving. Smart move for the Steelers.

    27. New York Giants: Keith Rivers, LB, USC. A little undersized which is why he will fall into the G-men's laps. However, he is not short on ability. The Giants will get a gem of a linebacker that makes plays all over the field and plays well in space. A secondary pick can be addressed in round 2 or 3.

    28. Jacksonville Jaguars: Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida. Jacksonville has those two massive roadblocks in the middle of that defense but lack that burst on the edge. Harvey could come in and be that type of impact defensive end that they desperately need. It would be a fine rookie season for him due to the consistent one on one's he would receive.

    29. San Francisco 49ers (from Indianapolis Colts): Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville. I'm really hesitant to do this, but I just don't think Alex Smith is going to the answer for the 49ers ( I also hold the assumption the Niners do what it takes to get Suggs in free agency). I've been back and forth on him for a while but if it came down to Smith or Nolan leaving the Bay Area, i'd rather see the Niners pay first round money to Brian Brohm.

    30. Green Bay Packers: Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida. This pick is kind of redundant but it makes too much sense. They need some depth at CB and that's essentially the only problem with Green Bay. Their WR's are great, they have their QB of the future, Ryan Grant IS THE ANSWER at running back (and you're ludacris to think otherwise), and the defense is solid. Depth at CB behind Woodson and Harris is the only problem.

    31. Dallas Cowboys: Frank Okam, NT, Texas. They take the in state kid and groom him behind Jason Ferguson (who is on the wrong side of 30). With these two picks in the first round, the Dallas defense has taken two big steps toward solidifying itself at the top of the league.

    32.Forfeited Pick by penalty of the NFL


    Round Two

    33. Miami Dolphins: Sam Baker, OT, USC. By nabbing two big time prospects on either side of the trenches would be an enormous boost for this Miami Dolphins team. I really liked the way Ronnie Brown was running before he got injured and some help up front would only make him better. Also, John Beck needs to be given a fair shake before the critics come out, and a fair shake includes better protection than what he's receiving. Baker and Dorsey, an excellent start I think.

    34. St. Louis Rams:Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College. Kind of along the same lines of Miami; I think infusions of youth on both sides of the ball along the line would be what's best for the Rams considerinig the value at the spots they are picking. Cherilus can be groomed as Pace's replacement and push to start at RT until Pace decides to call it quits (which looks like it may be soon).

    35. San Francisco 49ers: Limas Sweed, WR, Texas. As stated before, I'm doing this mock with the assumption that they get Suggs in free agency. With that said I think if they want Brohm to have a greater chance at success than Smith did, they will have to do a better job of committing to the WR position. Sweed is a big target who may be low on some people's list, but I think he'll be a big name come draft day after his wrist heals and he's able to take part in the combine. I also think that Jason Hill pushes Darrell Jackson out of the way and Arnaz Battle settles in comfortably in the slot.

    36. New York Jets: Dre Moore, NT/DE, Maryland. At 6'4” 311 lbs, Moore can get the leverage needed at the ever so valuable NT position, or slide out and play the run from the end spot, providing some extra beef on an undersized Jets D-line.

    37. Atlanta Falcons: Barry Richardson, OT, Clemson. This is a continued trend in this draft, teams going to the trenches to seek help, but it's something that I think could easily happen. Ellis in the first is exactly what they need on defense, and thanks to my knowledgeable ATL fan, Scar, I'm well aware of the need at OT versus OG. ( I still might give them Early Doucet a few picks later just to piss him off)

    38. Oakland Raiders: Red Bryant, DT, Texas A&M. I'm fully aware of the desire to get an offensive lineman to help the development of Jamarcus Russell, and i'm also aware of the desire to get him another capable pass catcher. With that said, as of late, i've liked the way the Raiders offense has looked. I think they've found their running back of the future in Fargas, and if they want a dual back system, they still have rhodes who excelled in it in Indy. Getting that rush off the edge with Campbell in the first round, and then sticking the massive 6'5” 324 lb. Bryant in the middle will only upgrade that defense against the run. I wouldn't be surprised to see angry Raider fans because I have them going D-line back to back, but that's my reasoning.

    39. Kansas City Chiefs: Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas. Ty Law and Patrick Surtain are nearing the end of their careers but Talib comes in at the perfect time to learn from two greats and play in the nickel package right away. He would be groomed and then become a full time starter in a year or so, allowing the Chiefs to not skip a beat at corner. Aside from that, good value for them at the seven spot in the second round.

    40. Baltimore Ravens: Leodis Mckelvin, CB, Troy. I think they would have loved to get Talib personally, but after grabbing their quarterback of the future in round 1, I think this pick goes to the secondary anyway. I still think the Ravens have the intensity on Defense to be near the top of the league, but Ed Reed can not do it all by himself, although it seems that way sometimes. Mckelvin would be a nice youthful addition to an aging defense and be a huge help against those AFC offenses.

    41. Philadelphia Eagles: Jordy Nelson, WR, Kansas State. He caught 122 passes for 1,600 yards and 11 touchdowns. I don't care who you are, that's just flat out producing at a high level. Whether it's Kolb or McNabb under center next year, Nelson would be a welcomed addition to this Eagles offense.

    42. Cincinnati Bengals: Chris Ellis, DE, Virgina Tech. Linebacker in the first, D-line in the second. It could be flip flopped but I would be extremely surprised if they went with any picks on the offensive side of the ball. To me, it just doesn't make sense. Ellis opposite Smith, with Laurinaitis in the middle would be immediate upgrades to this otherwise absent Cincy defense.

    43. Chicago Bears: Chris Williams, OT, Vanderbilt. After investing in Mr. Woodson with their first pick, they go straight to the offensive line with this deep offensive tackle draft. Giving Benson some lanes, but more importantly keeping Woodson up-right would be a huge step in the right direction for Chicago.

    44. Carolina Panthers: Erik Ainge, QB, Tennessee. The first QB taken in the second round is the Vol's product. David Carr is not quarterback material at the NFL level, and Vinny, well, he just can't keep it up. I also don't think Delhomme is the long term answer for the Panthers, which is where Ainge falls into the picture. Big frame, can make all the throws, and by coming in as a rook, Steve Smith will be his best bud. No more games where Smith disappears.

    45. Washington Redskins: Terrell Thomas, CB, USC. After grabbing the most dynamic defensive player in the draft with their round 1 selection, they shore up their secondary with Thomas in the second. At 6'1” 195 lbs, he's got the bigger frame to matchup against the NFC East wide receivers like Plaxico and Owens. Great value pick here for the Redskins, who could also go WR to compliment Moss but I don't know if they pass up a corner with what's available.

    46. New Orleans Saints: Kentwan Balmer, DT, North Carolina. After getting their Linebacker for the next decade, they get a tackle in front of him who can take some pressure off of him. Balmer might be a better fit at 3-4 DE because of his weight, but after putting on 10 pounds, which I think the bigger guys always can do, he would be plenty big enough to play inside in a 4-3.

    47. Atlanta Falcons (from Houston): Colt Brennan, QB, Hawaii. The offensive and defensive lines have been addressed, and with the their second pick in the second round they take the star from Hawaii. Passing on Brohm was difficult early on, but by grabbing Brennan, the Falcons have a beautiful start to the draft.

    48. Detroit Lions: Jonathan Goff, LB, Vanderbilt. With the cover 2 scheme that Marinell has the Lions running, corner can wait even after the 3rd round. They need to upgrade the Mike linebacker position because Paris isn't the answer there. With Sims and Bailey on either side, the transition for Goff will be easier than it is for most.

    49. Denver Broncos: Thomas Decoud, S, California. Coming into the draft I think the Broncos want to accomplish a few things and those include; Getting a linebacker to play in the middle so Williams can go back to outside backer, and get a safety. With the first two picks they're able to do just that and Decoud is a perfect fit.

    50. Arizona Cardinals: Tracy Porter, CB, Indiana. Porter can step in immediately and give that Cardinals secondary a boost. With the athletes that they have on offense they can more than afford to go defense with the first two picks.

    51. Tennessee Titans: Beau Bell, LB, UNLV. I see Bell coming in and being an immediate contributor to this Titans defense.

    52. Minnesota Vikings: Craig Steltz, S, LSU. A pass rushing defensive end is also a major possibility here but I don't necessarily think the value is here at this pick. With that, I think the vikings address the secondary and after watching some more on Steltz, I like the way he plays ball.

    53. Buffalo Bills: Jason Shirley, DT, Fresno State. A bit of a reach here? Maybe. But you can't deny the frame on this kid. 6'5” 330 lbs sitting in the middle of that Buffalo defense would look awfully good.

    54. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Tommy Blake, DE, TCU. The type of high motor defensive end that cover two teams love. He's undersized and might fall on draft day because of the measurables, but you can't deny his motor. A quarterback here is a very real possibility, but i'll take Blake.

    55. Miami Dolphins (from San Diego):Shawn Crable, DE/OLB, Michigan. I love the value of this pick for Miami. Shawn Crable is a poor man's Vernon Gholston or Quentin Groves and he's a player that you can move all over on that front seven.

    56. Cleveland Browns: Jeremy Leman, LB, Illinois. Really good LB prospect who might even be able to be shifted outside for the Browns. Either way, this pick has to go to the defense.

    57. Seattle Seahawks: Jonathan Hefney, S, Tennessee. The smaller frame could be something that forces Seattle to shy away, but you can't deny his ability to play. I think they'll elect to take the kid from Tennessee and he'll be a starter in the secondary from day one.

    58. Pittsburgh Steelers: Dejuan Tribble, CB, Boston College. When you're road to the Super Bowl is consistently through Indianapolis or New England, you're going to need all the extra help in the secondary that you can get.

    59. New York Giants: Zack Bowman, CB, Nebraska. I think the G-men will elect for the bigger framed Bowman, over the smaller corners left. Regardless, I think the consensus is that this pick needs to go to the secondary after addressing the linebacking corp in the first round.

    60. Jacksonville Jaguars: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Tennessee St. See reasoning for Pittsburgh's second rounder.

    61. Indianapolis Colts: Roy Sheuning, G, Oregon St. Boring pick for the colts I know, but where this O-line goes, the team goes. Ugoh and Sheuning will team up to be the staples of this colts offense for years to come.

    62. Green Bay Packers: Phillip Wheeler, LB, Georgia Tech. Hawk, Barnett, Wheeler with Rouse, Woodson, Harris behind them and KGB, the DT rotation and Kampman at ends...look out. The best defense in the NFC just might reside in Lambeau.

    63. Dallas Cowboys: Early Doucet, WR, LSU. Some may feel the slide almost out of the second round is absurd, but I'm just not to sure on him right now. Either way, Dallas is in the position to take a WR and this is where his slide stops.

    64. New England Patriots: Lawrence Jackson, DE, USC. Hasn't had the year that was projected for him, but he's still a first round talent I think. The Patriots get amazing value and yet another pawn in Belichek's master plan.

    Way too low for Gholston IMO. Hes a top 10 pick who could actually be the Raiders pick there at #6.

      I need to study this a bit later(Christmas shopping), but i would have to say without agreeing to every pick this has to be as good as it gets, will add more later(i know can hardly wait).

        I can see the Redskins and the Raiders picks flip flopping, absolutely. I just think that when the 3-4 teams (New England and New York) pass on him, he'll take a small dip.

        But I can't fault you for your observation.

          1. Jake Long (A, solid left tackle prospect, better right tackle, great value)
          2. Aqib Talib (A, great value, definate need, solid in the cover 2 CB prospect)
          3. Duke Robinson (A+++, great value, a huge need, this guy will be a beast)
          4. Joe Flacco (B+, bring him in and compete for starting roll, maybe takeover midseason)
          5. Jacob Tamme(B, great value, not much of a need, but this guy is just a big targer, with good hands)
          5b. Darrell Robertson(C+, Turk McBride, Wilkerson, Allen, Hali are already DE's in rotation, maybe go WR here, or safety)

            Yeah Tamme was more of a value pick, and the fact that Gonzo isnt getting any younger.

            As for that last pick, I thought I gave KC a WR earlier (whoops) so the thought had definitely crossed my mind, and I might go back and change it when I do some edits.

              That has to be one of the worst Falcons drafts I have seen.

              1. Sedrick Ellis, DT USC
              Great player, but absolutely horrible position pick. Jonathan Babineaux has been very good this season and will start next year. Rod Coleman is getting older but if he sticks around is more than servicable. Nose tackle is a big need, under tackle is not a need at all. You made us pass on the OT we are seeking in Jake Long. Kenny Phillips would even be better.

              2. Barry Richardson, OT Clemson
              Bad value. He has potential but his stock has fallen this year. And I don't know if he can even play LT. Ok player, bad value.

              2b. Colt Brennan, QB Hawaii
              The only pick in your draft I like.

              3. Erik Young, OG Tennessee
              Not a need. Justin Blalock is young and talented, and Keynan Forney isn't even 30. While Forney isn't great, his position doesn't need help as much as many others.

              4. Brandon Miller, LB Georgia
              Bad pick. Michael Boley is a top 3 strong side linebacker in the NFL, Stephen Nicholas is the weak side linebacker of the future, and Miller can't play MLB according to a Georgia fan. Bad pick.

              5. Erik Wicks, S West Virginia
              Bad pick. We don't need more average players at safety. If we pick up a safety we need to know he is the future at the position. Jimmy Williams likely has the head start for free safety of the future, and Chris Crocker can play either free safety or strong safety. Lawyer Milloy is old, but he has another year or two left. Even if he doesn't Crocker can play either position and backup Darren Stone has potential. So if we pick up a S he needs to be something special.

                the titans would definitely take a TE like rucker in the 3rd over another receiver.

                  1st: Great pick

                  2nd: I'd rather go with Zack Bowman here. We need a physical corner opposite of McGee, and hopefully he can be that guy.

                  3rdA: It's a toss up between Carlson and Fred Davis here. I wouldn't mind either one.

                  3rdB: We have good safeties in Whitner and Ko Simpson. We just need depth there, and with all of the positions we need to fill, we cant draft depth in this early. Therefore, I'd rather go Xavier Adibi or Ali Highsmith. We need a good OLB, and either one would step in and become our starter.

                  4th: I'd rather go with Andre Fleullen here. He has the type of frame where he can put on a lot of weight, and we good use a big guy in there.

                  5thA: Good pick

                  5thB: Cliff Avril would be my choice

                  I wouldn't mind the draft you have for Buffalo, but your order of needs are out of order, IMO.

                  I like this one better...

                  1st: Malcolm Kelly
                  2nd: Zack Bowman
                  3rd: John Carlson/Fred Davis
                  3rd: Xavier Adibi/Ali Highsmith
                  4th: Andre Fluellen
                  5th: Cody Wallace
                  5th: Cliff Avril

                      Just an observation, the reasoning for the Texans pick seems almost the reverse of what it should be. Running backs are a dime a dozen and a team can often find a good or capable back in mid-rounds, no less the second or third. However, good LT prospects are really only found very early. I highly doubt the Texans pass on a tackle their with their choice of anybody outside of Jake Long.

                      The Bengals second rounder is sort of a right position, bad fit pick. Justin Smith may be leaving and Robert Geathers is probably their best defensive player and a natural undersized pass rushing end. I'd think that a bigger end like Lawrence Jackson would be a better fit for what the Bengals will want in an end.

                      For the Jets, first round is fine and the second round is fantastic. Third round I find it hard to believe we would pass on Duke Robinson that late with a huge hole at LG, plus if we take a RT we'll want a bigger guy that can run block because we need some nastiness on the line. Hills just isn't a good fit there, Robinson would definitely be better. Fourth round Ezra Butler is a better fit at LB and Trae Williams or Chevis Jackson would be good fits because we need a potential #2 corner. Monk is good with the first fifth rounder, the second we really only need an ILB or a rush linebacker and I think at that point whatever rush LB we get isn't going to be worth the pick. D.J. Wolfe would probably be better there. That said, OLB is a big need and I wouldn't put it past us to pass on McFadden for Gholston because RB really isn't a need at all and Gholston is a very talented palyer. You don't have any trades, otherwise I'd say a trade down with McFadden on the board would be likely because I really don't think we take him.

                        5. Atlanta Falcons: Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC. Could be the biggest surprise in the top 10 of this draft. To me, Ellis and Dorsey grade out very close to one another and the Falcons would only have to pay #5 money to him. Matt Ryan, and Brian Brohm are two other choices that are very real possibilities. However, I feel like the depth of the quarterback position is significant this year and with two second rounders the Falcons can address it then. Coleman and Ellis would be a nasty duo on the interior of that Falcons defense.


                        - HORRIBLE PICK!!! Ellis is a UT, the SAME position as Coleman, AKA NOT A NEED. We need Dorsey who is a NT... aka, WOULD ACTUALLY PLAY NEXT TO COLEMAN! horrible pick. We take OT Jake Long here.


                        37. Atlanta Falcons: Barry Richardson, OT, Clemson. This is a continued trend in this draft, teams going to the trenches to seek help, but it's something that I think could easily happen. Ellis in the first is exactly what they need on defense, and thanks to my knowledgeable ATL fan, Scar, I'm well aware of the need at OT versus OG. ( I still might give them Early Doucet a few picks later just to piss him off)

                        - Good pick. Ellis in the first is exactly the OPPOSITE of what we need. we don't need to reach for a backup UT. but Richardson is a great pick even if we do get Long as we need both OT spots.

                        47. Atlanta Falcons (from Houston): Colt Brennan, QB, Hawaii. The offensive and defensive lines have been addressed, and with the their second pick in the second round they take the star from Hawaii. Passing on Brohm was difficult early on, but by grabbing Brennan, the Falcons have a beautiful start to the draft.

                        - Great pick.

                        69. Atlanta Falcons: Eric Young, G, Tennessee


                        - Great pick

                        101. Atlanta Falcons: Brandon Miller, LB, Georgia.


                        - good pick

                        131. Atlanta Falcons: Erick Wicks, S, West Virginia.


                        - good pick but I think we get NT Nick Hayden here.

                              27. New York Giants: Keith Rivers, LB, USC. A little undersized which is why he will fall into the G-men's laps. However, he is not short on ability. The Giants will get a gem of a linebacker that makes plays all over the field and plays well in space. A secondary pick can be addressed in round 2 or 3.
                              59. New York Giants: Zack Bowman, CB, Nebraska. I think the G-men will elect for the bigger framed Bowman, over the smaller corners left. Regardless, I think the consensus is that this pick needs to go to the secondary after addressing the linebacking corp in the first round.

                              Im just gonna address the 1st 2 rounds because i do not know about the depth of the draft at this pt yet

                              1st round is alright but it is not as immediate a need as a safety or a cornerback..Rivers is athletic and with kiwi coming back next year we would have a really fast, young LB corp but our secondary is weak. We always have injuries, James Butler is a starting safety for us who is at best a backup along with Sam madison who is aging fast. I would take Mike Jenkins 1st round truthfully. Although im not too hot on him at this pt, him and Aaron Ross in the secondary along with Gibril Wilson would create a really young, talented strong secondary. 2nd round I would continue with the secondary and go safety. We have to play TO 2x a year and we can never stop him. May be Marcus Griffin.
