    Herm has already stated we will NOT draft a QB in the 1st rd let alone day 1.Sedric Ellis or Malcolm Jenkins are better picks for KC

      I love the Sam Baker pick for the Giants. I think that it would extremely help our offense to move Diehl back inside and drafting Baker allows us to do that. Plus, Eli has never had a great LT to protect him and make him feel good.

          Why in the blue hell would the Titans pick Lawrence Jackson with Malcolm Kelly still on the board? We need wide receivers by FAR more than any other position and Kelly is arguably the best in the whole class.

            If that scenario were to happen for Buffalo, I would be mad.
            There really is no right choice there, because no position of need for us, is good value.
            We don't have Marv to go for reaches for anymore, so I'm really not sure what we would do there.

            This one has me stumped. Maybe Laurinaitis?

              Because you've constantly ignored the DE position despite it being a need for the past few years, are likely losing Haynesworth off the line (of course Jackson isn't a DT, but you need to keep the line strong overall), and have drafted a plethora of receivers over the past few seasons.

              I know none of the receivers have really become a true #1 receiver in the league, but 1) they can all use at LEAST another year, 2) Vince Young doesn't really thrive when it comes to getting his receivers the ball, and 3) While LenDale, Chris Brown and Chris Henry aren't the greatest backs in the world, the three of them combined with Young obviously make your game plan geared towards staying on the ground.

              Give Roby, Brandon Jones, Roydell/Paul Williams, and Chris Davis another year. There's no use throwing another rookie on top of that pile, along with Moulds and Gage. That's 7 receivers right there, no use in adding 8 even if a few of the less talented are weeded out for next season. It'd take a hell of a weeding.

              I think a WR to Tennessee is the most overblown need in the entire draft

                Yeah, you'd better hope Bowman works out extremely well and makes that pick worth it. I think he'll be up there somewhere because he's technically the only 'bigger' receiver other than Sweed, who'd have to really prove himself to be picked that high. But I think the Bills' #1 priority this off-season should be to help out Edwards. The line is pretty much there, the running game is up and coming, and Evans has a bit of promise, but they really need to improve after him. I know Kelly is about the same size, but I'd like to see him declare first. Unless I missed something.

                Linebacker shouldn't be a problem; Crowell, Ellison and Posluszny should get the job done, no?

                  ^Ellison is an average backup at best.
                  I don't think I can name one Bills fan who doesn't think we need to upgrade the WLB position.

                    KVB had twelve sacks, Antwan Odom had eight sacks and Travis LaBoy had six. That's 26 sacks from three defensive ends. We don't need another one.

                    I know none of the receivers have really become a true #1 receiver in the league, but 1) they can all use at LEAST another year, 2) Vince Young doesn't really thrive when it comes to getting his receivers the ball, and 3) While LenDale, Chris Brown and Chris Henry aren't the greatest backs in the world, the three of them combined with Young obviously make your game plan geared towards staying on the ground.
                    Yes our gameplan is ground based but there's still passing. In the Denver game the receivers and tight ends dropped EIGHT perfect passes from Vince. How is he supposed to be effective if his entire receiving core sucks?

                    Give Roby, Brandon Jones, Roydell/Paul Williams, and Chris Davis another year. There's no use throwing another rookie on top of that pile, along with Moulds and Gage. (Even if Moulds doesn't return, you get my point)
                    I'm fine with Roydell Williams and Jones as slot receivers but the rest of those guys are terrible. Roby was a complete waste of a pick and Davis is only really useful every now and then. Paul Williams didn't even see the field this season. If he can't see the field with that group in front of him then he clearly is not that good. If Kelly is there at 25 it shouldn't even be a question. He can be the number one target Vince NEEDS to succeed.

                    I think a WR to Tennessee is the most overblown need in the entire draft
                    And you have just proved to me you haven't seen a single Titans game all season so I'm no longer going to waste my time picking apart your mock.

                      I disagree. The offensive line has played well all season and when Whimper was given a chance to play when Diehl was hurt he did very well. The Giants need to get a DB in the first round. I really don't like the pick and would prefer Cason or Talib.

                        I disagree. If Reese went that way, it would only be for a guy who right away is going to be a big upgrade on Diehl. I personally don't think Sam Baker is that guy. Diehl has played as well at tackle as he ever did at guard, and his contract makes him a steal for a LT in this league. I will be disappointed if the Giants don't use at least 2 out of their first 3 picks on the defensive back 7.

                          See, I am personally very high on Baker and think that he is a franchise LT. Most of his knocks are on his size (6'5) and his play this year (injured). He has better footwork than everyone else in this draft and I still believe he is much closer to Long as an OT prospect than people give him credit for. As for Diehl, at the beginning of the season he showed a lot of promise, but the more he has played the more he regresses. I think he is an admirable LT, but he was much better at guard and bringing in a LT and moving Diehl back inside balances out our line much more. I think it all comes down to rating Baker as a prospect and I still think he is a top-10 prospect, juniors included.

                            I disagree on Diehl regressing. Every now and then a speed rusher blows him off the ball, but that happens to pretty much every tackle. In the running game/screen game he is probably one of the best pulling tackles in the league and on a number of occasions I have noticed him setting up a key block (he had a really nice block on the jacobs TD catch last week). The one major weakness I see in his game is that he isnt a very powerful inline blocker but that is just as big a problem when he is playing guard. Seubert has stepped in the oline hasn't missed a beat.

                            I don't disagree with your assessment of Baker, I just think it is unrealistic to expect any rookie LT to outplay Diehl at this point. It is 2 years already and I would say D'Brickashaw has been comparable to Diehl at best. Whimper has also looked good off the bench so there is potential there for the future. The only thing I would highly consider drafting on the OL for the Giants would be a road grading OG or OC. Basically another Snee. Other then that Seubert and Diehl have both done enough to warrant another season at their current spots, and Whimper has shown enough that we shouldn't be too concerned with finding a replacement for the future.

                              I think the Jags would take Talib over Doucet, who I'm not at all excited about.
