    The worst kept secret in this years draft is how much gruden Likes Calvin Johnson, But i believe the best kept secret in this years draft is just how much Childress likes Calvin Johnson himself all the interest in Peterson, Quinn, and Landry is all a smoke screen intended to give the bucs a false sense of security that Calvin will fall to them at #4. There has been a lot of talk about the bucs trading from #4 to #2 but that would consist of there first rounder and both there seconds in this years draft which i believe is too expensive for Bruce allen's(their GM) taste so the trade won't happen. It's also said that if the bucs dont trade the Lions are content taking Calvin Johnson themselves, although i agree that would be the smart choice there, its not the Millen choice i believe its all a bs smoke screen to try and force the bucs to make the trade... I belive that Speilman will trade 1(7) 2(41) and a future 2nd to move up to #3

    1(3):Calvin Johnson WR
    3(72): Quentin Moses DE
    4(106):Ryan McBean DT
    5(145):Kenny Scott CB
    6(182):Mike Walker WR
    7(217):Mike Jones G
    That isn't enough to move up. Trust me if someone moves up to #3 Cleveland isn't going to let that spot go for anything less than 2-#1's.
    you can add up all the "value points you want" 25 - 4th rounders...a combination of 3rds and 5th's...reality is, that spots "value" is dictated by the player that sits there. In this case the "privilage" of drafting Calvin Johnson ON draft morning (the highest this kids value will ever be) is going to be 2-1's, 2-2nd's and probably a 3rd AND either cash or future consideration picks.
    As much as I'd love to see it, I just can't see it.

I'm scared of his injuries/durability and upright running style, especially with the revelation of his lingering collarbone injury. Personally, I want to trade down as I don't really think the value of the #7 pick really fits with our needs.

        2/41 - Sydney Rice, South Carolina: I really like him, he is smooth and has great ball skills and only 20 years old. I think he has better potential to start than guys like Steve Smith and Anthony Gonzales, though he may be a bit more raw.

            1 - Adrian Peterson - Oklahoma - RB - Most likely now with the Injury talk he will fall to us and he should be fine before week one or even in preseaon. He is a great runner and a game breaker and will help this team alot with the 2 running back system we could set up with him.

            2 - Sidney Rice - South Carolina - WR - It could be him or Dwayne Jarret it just depends if Jarret could fall to us before a team like Dolphins/Bears take him. Sidney Rice is very expolsive and could be our #1 with Troy on the other side.

            Dynasty "guessed" the same 2 picks.

              Im not sure anyonewas surprised by the picks.
              I think we did a pretty good job as far as injuries go Name a rb who hasnt been injured in the league.
              Honestly the peterson pick prolly saves childress job. Now Taylor wont have to carry the ball 30 times a game. and Maybe that will reduce his fumbles.

                Good job for Dynasty, too, then.

                PS. I also had Andrae Allison going to the Vikes, albeit a round too soon.

                4/106 - Andrae Allison, East Carolina: A lot of you will say he'll be gone by this point, but I think he could pretty easily slip to day 2. I think some analysts are putting too much stock in his Senior Bowl practice week in regards to his draft value, whereas front offices may have him pegged later. Either way, I love him and would love to get a shot at him on day 2.
