Gaines Adams, DE, 6-5 260 4.76 1, Clemson - rated #2 by Scout.com, he may be the first D-lineman off the board… a phenomenal athlete who does everything well - he's quick enough as a pass defender (led the team with 9 PBU), strong enough against the run (55 tackles) and has already established himself as a pass rushing terror... In 05, he had a team best 15 TFLs, 9.5 sacks and 29 QBHs demonstrating his great speed off the corner.... Scouts love his size, burst and long arms... as “the Bandit”, he plays a little bit of DE and a little bit of OLB…

Josh Beekham, ROG, 6-3 320 1-2, Boston College - One of the very best guards in the nation (first-team SI.com), can play center if needed, but he'll dominate wherever he plays… has started all 24 games at right guard over the previous two seasons, and in 05 earned second-team All-ACC honors… he has great athleticism and tackle-like pass protection skills... has quick feet and can get movement… he is tough against quick one-gap DTs… his excellence against ACC competition is documented, and considering the ACC had 15 defensive players selected in the first 63 picks of last years NFL draft, you may understand how he can be rated so high…. A very solid opportunity for the Bolts to bring in a successor to Goff….

Levi Brown, LOT, 6-5 325 5.28 1-2, Penn State - A first round candidate... He's a pretty good athlete for a man that big... Brown combines great size, skills and athleticism… he has muscled up with his efforts in the weight room and off-season conditioning program and has improved his speed and agility from last season... Brown has started 34 of the past 35 games, and in 05, earned second-team All-America honors… I perceive this guy to be a manster and he's worthy of All-America hype - let’s find out how he compares to the other top OT’s in this class (Thomas, Blalock, etc.)...

Quentin Moses, DE, 6-5 255 4.76 1, Georgia - rated #1 by Scout.com and perhaps the nations best pass rusher, he could've turned pro last year but decided to come back... at the start of the season, he had career numbers of 19.5 sacks and 32.5 TFL over the last three years… In 05, 44 tackles, he finished second in the SEC with 11.5 sacks and 20.5 TFL... expect a monster season from Moses in 2006... he is currently on the watch lists for the Bednarik, Walter Camp and the Nagurski Trophy in addition to being named the nation's No. 1 defensive end by The Sporting News...

Not interested in drafting ANY position other than OL in first two rounds. Then maybe a good LB, then more OL.

Ideally, I'd love for our draft to go like this:

1st: LT
2nd: LB
3rd: C
4th: CB
5th: DL
6th: Joey Harrington
7th: LB

But I'd like to pick up some extra picks too.
