  • fenikz's top 16 w/ explanations

    1. Miami (1-14) - Vernon Gholston DE/OLB Ohio State

    The man is a pure beast and his combine numbers will reflect that making him a surefire top 5, McFadden is the BPA but just 2 years ago the invested their #2 pick in RB Ronnie Brown & Dorsey doesn't quite fit their current scheme


    2. St. Louis (3-12) - Glenn Dorsey DT LSU

    The man has been playing through injury the whole season and just hasn't been the same, he should be fully healthy by the NC game so we can once agian see his true dominance, Chris Long and Jake Long are both options here but i felt Dorsey was the BPA at a position of need.


    3. New York Jets (3-12) - Chris Long DE Virginia

    As long as he comes into the combine at a solid 280 and preforms well he is a good fit at 3-4 DE, Thomas Jones is a pretty solid back so McFadden would be a luxury that I think the Jets will pass up on.


    4. Atlanta (3-12) - Darren McFadden RB Arkansas

    The Falcons just need some good news, the fans are obviously upset over this season and the franchise needs a new face as Vick was just disgraceful, McFadden is the BPA in the draft and he is the best option to quickly improve the franchise quickly


    5. Kansas City (4-11) - Jake Long OT Michigan

    Thier O-line is just terrible this year, once one of the best in the NFL & Long is a solid player who takes them back in the right direction, Some may argue for a QB with the poor performance of Croyle, but no QB is going to do good behind the current line.


    6. Oakland (4-11) - Sedrick Ellis DT USC

    The man is just having a monster year, a huge part of USC's defenses success this year, extremely explosive pass rusher with a non-stop motor, who I'm sure scouts will fall in love with.


    7. Baltimore (4-11) - Matt Ryan QB Boston College

    Smith has looked decent in the games he has played and Billick's job may be on the line so another position is very possible, but if they do choose to go the QB route Ryan is the best one of this class and the way most of us see him as a prospect will probably change over the the time between the draft and now.


    8. New England (from San Francisco) (5-10) - Malcolm Jenkins CB Ohio State

    The Patriots may be the only team who is happy to be moving back in the draft as they don't like to pay rookies a lot of money and the difference between #2 and #8 is a very significant amount, Samuel seems very iffy on being resigned right now as he will want Nate Clements type of money and the Patriots just don't value any player that much, so they take the top CB and more than likely he will become an All Pro at the position.


    9. Cincinnati (6-9) - James Laurinitis LB Ohio State

    The Bengals severely underperformed this year, on some weeks they looked like one of the worst teams in the league others like playoff contenders, Laurinitis is a natural leader who can keep the defense on their toes and make sure that this stuff doesn't keep happening, he also happens to be the BPA imo.


    10. Denver (6-9) - Dan Connor LB Penn State

    Much like the Bengals you were never really sure what to expect out of them this year, Connor can start at MLB from the 1st day which will allow D.J. Williams to go back to SLB where he thrived last year


    11. Carolina (6-9) - Brian Brohmn QB Louisville

    Delhomme is normally a good QB when he is healthy but, that is becoming less and less and he is already 32 definitely not the long team answer, Fox could very well be gone after this year and a new HC may want his own QB. FS is probally their biggest area of need but QB is also a viable option.


    12. Chicago (6-9) - Andre Woodson QB Kentucky

    Woodson is a guy who I feel is unfairly being picked apart by scouts while he still is putting up amazing numbers in clutch situations throughout the season, Grossman & Orton clearly aren't the future of the franchise and Woodson is a very solid prospect. OT is another option, so Clady and Otah are also viable picks.


    13. Arizona (7-8) - Kenny Phillips S Miami

    Obviously the biggest need of the Cardinals is help in the secondary, Hood is a decent CB and Wilson is the best SS in the league pair him with Phillips which would allow him to roam even more and the entire defense will be a whole different beast. The Cardinals should strongly pursue a CB in FA to so they can move Green back to NB and cut ties with Rolle.


    14. New Orleans (7-8) - Mike Jenkins CB South Florida

    Nearly last in the NFL for passing yards allowed CB is definitely a position of need, I personally am not as high on Mike Jenkins as others are but even I can't argue that he is of good value here and at a position of need.


    15. Buffalo (7-8) Malcolm Kelly WR Oklahoma

    Seems like just too easy of a pick to make, but sometimes those are the best, Evans is a stud and a true #1 but Parrish is a burner who isn't the best compliment for him and should be used as a #3 to open up the field, that is where Kelly comes in, a great possession WR, who is good RZ target and isn't afraid to go across the middle.


    16. Houston (7-8) - Ryan Clady OT Boise State

    Finally they grab a franchise OT, both Shaub and Rosenfels have looked good and Andre Johnson is a stud, Secondary help or a RB can be had in the 2nd, but Clady is just too good of a prospect to pass up.

    I'm all for the Bengals taking a LB or DE, it'll be hard for me to not be happy with one of those positions.

      Looks solid. I agree with Gholston going #1 overall.

      As for the Rams, I'd be shocked if Chris Long wasn't the pick in this scenario. Defensive end is certainly the position of need and C. Long would also be in the BPA picture. I think he'd be a lock here with Gholston off the board.

        Give me Keith Rivers for N.O.

        I know we need CB help but we need LB help more.

          Phillips to AZ would be deadly. Him and Wilson, ouch.

              Bears would take Brohm or Ryan in round 1, if available, otherwise I think they pass on a developmental QB in round 1 like Woodson and address the O-Line or even safety with Kenny still available

                    let me take the liberty.

                    17. Jonathon Stewart, may be a little bit of a system player but runs well north and south and if he times well in the combine would probably go higher.

                    18. Jeff Otah, big OT who is gaining consensus as the #2 offensive lineman after Jake Long. Mel Kiper seems to be high on this guy, i tend to give him the benefit of the doubt.

                    19. Sam Baker, pretty much a top dozen pick before the season started and i dont think all of a sudden he stopped being a real good player, injuries sort of ruined his season but unless a hamstring injury ends his career he's a great value at the this point.

                    20. Jordy Nelson, if there is something in this guys DNA that wouldnt be a great addition to an NFL offense then tell me what that is. 6-3 220lbs and expected by those that have actually watched him to run a 4.4ish 40. For you old timers reminds me of Kirk Gibson who played at Michigan State in the late 70s.

                      I think Woodson will be 3x the QB Brohm will ever be in the NFL

                            depending on orton's play in this final game, he might justify himself being given a shot next year and the bears might hold off on a QB in round 1 and go oline instead.

                            although woodson is my personal pick if i had to go with one of the QB's

                            and another thing, if the falcons go McFadden, i hope he likes playing behind undrafted tackles and having 8 men in the box since theres no way in hell harrington, redman and thier ilk are going to back the safeties off.....

                            just an idea

                              You go 1-15 to draft Vernon Gholston, im sorry but if thats the case then this is a very weak draft class. McFadden or Jake Long would be better suited for the top pick.
