    Notes:

    If I were a San Diego fan, I'd be doing backflips for this draft. The team filled needs and got tremendous value with every pick except at 96 with Zak DeOssie. Bowe and Weddle could come in and start from Day One for a team that was 14-2 a year ago.

    The Atlanta Falcons ignore character to take two talented players in the second round in Florida's Jarvis Moss and Miami's Brandon Meriweather. They got great value in the 2nd and filled needs, but still have to be cautious about taking two players with known character issues. 3rd Round pick Aundrae Allison is also known to be a bit immature.

    The Bills continue to draft exactly how they want to and to fit their system. Word is, the Bills have fallen in love with Paul Posluszny, who is a small reach at 12. The Bills have been depleted at LB this offseason and Posluszny can play any LB position. They skip over Lynch and his character concerns.

    The Packers draft isn't flashy but it fills holes. Greg Olsen will stretch the field at TE and will give Favre the option at Tight End that he's really never had with Green Bay. Kenny Irons is a guy the Packers are interested in and he fits the system. Gerald Alexander's stock is rising fast and his stock could peak in the 3rd Round.

    Tampa Bay's draft is as strange, but as strong and diverse, as anyone's, Gaines Adams, Steve Smith, Quincy Black, Usama Young. Each player the Bucs picked is on the rise. Black and Young, the Bucs last two picks, in particular are rising fast. Young may very well be gone by this point, and Black may too. Both could be surprising Top 50 picks.

    Dallas' draft is great as usual. Each of Dallas' three picks comes with good value. Robert Meachem reminds some of Javon Walker, and could be a Top 20 value. Arron Sears slips a bit and falls to the Cowboys at 53, a Top 45 value. David Irons slips to 87 where the Cowboys grab him, a Top 75 value.

    The Raiders go all offense with their four offensive picks with Calvin Johnson obviously the most notable pick. A good Center can really do a lot for an offense, and Kalil is the best in this draft, a good value at 33. Ben Patrick fills a need and provides Andrew Walter with another target. Dwayne Wright, an underrated back, can be used right away as a power back and could eventually become Oakland's starting back.

    The Giants are another team that really get away with a tremendous draft class in Jon Beason, Jason Hill, and Jonathan Wade. Each pick provides value and fits into New York's needs.

    More to come...

    Enjoy!

        I'm a Bengals fan. I know where you are coming from. Anderson is a great value at 18, and will fill a need. Justin Smith is on a 1 year deal and may end up costing too much to bring back in 2008-09. Bryan Robinson is aging. Rucker is unproven. Robert Geathers is great, but I don't think he's an every down player yet. Anderson is an elite physical specimen who can really rush the passer. Pass Defense starts with the pass rush. If we can get to the QB 40-45 times this year, our pass defense will be much, much better. The Packers were the only team with 40+ sacks that finished in the bottom half of the league in pass defense, at 17th.

        Justin Durant is a great fit, and it's well known that Marvin Lewis loves him. Durant is fast, athletic, and though he's a bit undersized, he's very good against the run.

        I'd like a Corner in the First Day, as it is probably our most pressing need, but we have to make sure the fit and value are there. Watch for Aaron Ross in the 1st or Usama Young in the 2nd Round. Though they'd be small reaches, each fit and we have expressed interest in both.

          For the Panthers...

          1st rd- OT isn't a 1st round need. We need guys that can come in and start right away at both safety and TE.

          2nd rd- see 1st rd. If there's not a player of those two positions on the board thats good value, I could see us taking a DE/LB here, but probably only if we can't find someone to trade down with.

          3rd rd- Even if we take a safety in the 1st/2nd (which we really should), there is still a small possibility we take another safety in the 3rd, our coach is on the record as saying he'd like to take two safeties in the draft (one to start this year and one to groom for 08 with Minter retiring after this season), though it's likely it'd be later in the draft that we'd take a second safety.

            The Panthers were a team I was shaky on. I like Staley at 14, he has the rare potential to be a Franchise LT that you don't usually find out of the Top 5-10. I actually like him a bit more than Levi Brown. I belive he can come in and start right away, though he may not reach his full potential for a few years. Reggie Nelson, Jon Beason and Greg Olsen were considered here, but I think Staley's upside makes him the top pick here. The Panthers may have to wait years before they can get their hands on a LT with the upside and athletic ability of Joe Staley.

            Tim Crowder is a decent but not great value there. He's not a flashy guy, but he gets the job done and plays both the run and pass. He surprised everyone with a very good showing at the Combine. I like the fit there alongside Julius Peppers, though it may be a year or two before Crowder carcks the starting lineup.

            I like Gattis, and he's a local product. He's a guy who played a brilliant college career and has shown the athleticism to carry over some of that success. Some see him as an in the box safety, but I believe he could surprise some people. A decent value pick there.

            I don't think the Panthers draft will wow anyone, but it's an interesting group of players. Each could be starting for Carolina 2-3 years down the road and all three have some upside, especially Staley.

            Luckily for the Panthers, this year's Tight End class is fairly deep and they may be able to pick up a contributor in the 4th Round. As far as Linebacker is concerned, I just never liked the value I saw. I'm not as high on Eric Weddle as some, which is why I opted to go with Crowder in the 2nd, who I feel is a better value. Michael Coe from Alabama State is a CB/S tweener to keep an eye on.

              1st GREAT

              2nd good

              3rd good, could be James Marten

              3rd bad, DE and DT are bigger needs than RB now since we got rhodes and already have jordan

                Don't get me wrong, I like Staley to some degree but safety is much more of an immediate need. We seriously have no one to start at one safety spot (to give you an idea, if the season started tomorrow...Deke Cooper would probably be a starter), it'd be very hard to imagine the Panthers not taking Reggie Nelson if he were there.

                You could make a similar argument for Olsen giving the emphasis the new OC wants to put on the TE in the passing game, especially when it's widely speculated that Keyshawn will be gone after the 07 season as well, meaning our top two receiving threats in 08 would then be Steve Smith and Drew Carter. I expect we'll take Nelson if he's there and if he's not we'll take Olsen (though the way this offseason has went for us, nothing would honestly surprise me).

                Crowder in the 2nd and Gattis in the 3rd I could definately live with, but we pretty much have to come out of day one with a safety that can come in and start right away.

                    I originally had Marten at that 3rd Round pick, but I wondered how much help another rookie O-Lineman could be. I think the Raiders best bet is to pick up a short term free agent and draft an offensive weapon like Patrick who could help the team right away.

                    That other 3rd Round pick was tough for me. I looked Defensive End, and I didn't see anyone that really stood out to me. Then I looked DT, same story. I saw Wright as a decent value and the only back left in this draft with eventual starter potential.

                        I'm not sure what to think of Jamaal Anderson. Honestly I don't see it happening, Marvin seems very high in Frostee Rucker and a 3rd rounder is a pretty decent investment. I just don't think I see him going DE and giving Rucker a chance to prove himself this year.

                        I would rather see Weddle in the 2nd but that's not to say it would happen.

                            Honestly, I think it makes sense, but I agree, I don't see it happening. That's the only part where I switched some picks around to make it all work for me. Originally I had Jon Beason at 18, which is the player I see us taking there. But with that, I had Anderson at 21 and Carriker at 25. Carriker at 25 specifically had me shaking my head, so I went back and switched a few things up. Without trades it's hard to keep every player around their value, so I did the best I could there.

                            Marvin Lewis is very big on Durant, and loves Linebackers. I think, if we were to go DL or a DB in the 1st, it'd be a LB in the 2nd. Durant is a decent value there and fits the system well.

                            If I were to go with Beason, like I planned to, at 18, I'd most likely go DB in the 2nd. However, it wouldn't be Weddle. I'm not a big Weddle fan, and I think he's a 3rd Round value. I think it'd be Kent State's Usama Young. Very athletic, great measurables, a lot of production, he's one of this draft's fastest risers. The Bengals are reported interested.
