1 OAK JAMARCUS RUSSELL - QB - LSU Big arm to execute the Al Davis offense
2 DET BRADY QUINN - QB - NOTRE DAME Too much pressure to pass him up
3 CLE ADRIAN PETERSON - RB - OKLAHOMA Crennel is under pressure and this pick would pay immediate dividends
4 TB CALVIN JOHNSON - WR - GEORGIA TECH Could be the best player in the draft and Gruden love offense
5 ARI JOE THOMAS - OT - WISCONSIN The O-line that Edgerrin was promised
6 WAS ALAN BRANCH - DT - MICHIGAN Best big man available and Washington need to stop the run
7 MINN DWAYNE JARRETT - WR - USC Time to surround Jackson with weapons. Big plays will compliment Williamson's speed
8 HOU JAMAAL ANDERSON - DE - ARKANSAS Limitless physical potential and should take pressure off Mario Williams
9 MIA LEVI BROWN - OT - PENN ST Cameron wants to build from the "inside-out." Starts with the O-line
10 ATL TED GINN JR - WR - OHIO ST This team NEEDS a WR. Ginn can stretch the field to open it up for Vick
11 SF AMOBI AKOYE - DT - LOUISVILLE Instant impact in a DL rotation that is in transition to a 3-4
12 BUFF GAINES ADAMS - DE - CLEMSON Pass rusher that Buffalo has missed since Bruce Smith
13 STL LARON LANDRY - S - LSU Versitile playmaker in the secondary that will stop opponents hopes for a shoot-out
14 CAR REGGIE NELSON - S - FLORIDA Need secondary help to pick up the sraps the D-line creates
15 PITT ADAM CARRIKER - DE - NEBRASKA Big 3-4 DE in solid mold of a Pittsburgh player
16 GB MARSHAWN LYNCH - RB - CALIFORNIA Need to give Favre a RB with the exit of Ahman Green
17 JAC DWAYNE BOWE - WR - LSU Looks like a solid answer to the WR problems
18 CINN PATRICK WILLIS - ILB - OLE MISS Much needed good character guy to fill the hole left by Odell Thurman
19 TENN ROBERT MEACHEM - WR - TENNESSEE Surround Vince Young with a hometown guy
20 NYG LEON HALL - CB - MICHIGAN Best CB on the board, and nice value for a team in search a coverage help
21 DEN SIDNEY RICE - WR - SOUTH CAROLINA Big play guy to develop with Cutler
22 DAL ANTHONY SPENCER - DE - PURDUE Versitle, stand-up DE/OLB to use opposite Demarcus Ware
23 KC LAWRENCE TIMMONS - LB - FLORIDA ST Infuses more speed into a defense that needs it
24 NE QUENTIN MOSES - DE - GEORGIA Versitiel, intelligent DE/OLB to replace some aging LBs
25 NYJ PAUL POSLUSZNY - LB - PENN ST Solid pick for the Jets that they cant boo.
26 PHI RYAN KALIL - C - USC Protecting McNabb is now essential, and this fills a hole in the middle
27 NO DARRELLE REVIS - CB - PITTSBURGH Fred Thomas had a bulls-eye on him during the playoffs. Needs fixing
28 NE MICHAEL GRIFFIN - S - TEXAS Harrison hurting and Wilson possibly switching to CB to fill in for Samuels, good fill
29 BAL TONY UGOH - OT - ARKANSAS Jonathan Ogden is retiring and Ugoh has some physical tools to work with
30 SD BRANDON MERIWEATHER - S - MIAMI Corners are shakey and Meriweather would be a great ballhawk over the top. (Kiel-Jail?)
31 CHI ZACH MILLER - TE - ARIZONA ST Tight Ends are great for a QBs development, and Grossman needs it.
32 IND VICTOR ABIAMIRI - DE - NOTRE DAME Can close out games with a pass rush, and also has the size to help vs the run

just a couple suggestions...

1.Give the Colts either a DT or an LB, even after Freeney and Mathis they've got depth there.

2.The Ravens already got Ogden's replacement in Adam Terry, they do however need another guard to pair with Jason Brown; Ben Grubbs maybe?

3.Evn if it might be a reach, either DT or LB for New Orleans, though not a bad pick.

4.Eagles don't need a C, Jamal Jackson is pretty good. Maybe S,WR, or LB?

5.Don't know if Merriweather is a first rounder, but I think you got the right position for SD.

6.Not going to trash us taking Levi, but I'm not going to say I like it either (yet)

7.No Justin Blaylock?


other than that it's not bad.

-Good call on INDY. I forgot about Mathis
-Isnt Adam Terry a RT? Thought he was there to challenge Pashos. But Grubbs definetly crossed my mind.
-I thought about a LB for NO, but none really fit or had good value.
-The Eagles were tough cus they draft well, so there arent many holes. Kalil was mostly a great value there.
-Meriweather is on the fringe, but him and Weddle will be gone by their next pick and then there is a huge drop off.
-Im not trilled with Brown, cus it may be a bit of a reach, but I think it is of extremely high priority. Plus Tackles are thin and this is going to be the only shot. Other positions are deep and we can get some value in them later (DE, DT, WR, S,)
-No Justin Blaylock cus he had a very uninspired senior bowl week. I think Ben Grubbs has surpassed him.

Good stuff.

alrighty mate, sounds good. Even with Blaylock's uninspired play, IMO he'll still be picked up by either Dallas or Baltimore, but good job none the less.

Oh something else, if I were you, I'd switch Okoye to St. Louis (Kennedy has been a disappointment and Glover is getting up there in age), Ginn to San Fran (nned another WR), and give the Falcons either Nelson or Landry.

Atlanta's offensive problem is not as much WRs as it is offensive scheme and QB.

Id rather have Gaines Adams, Ginn or Landry over Brown.

I doubt that Gaines Adams will fall that far. And if he were to, I'd be surprised and very angry that we would pass on him. He just seems like the natural replacement for Jason Taylor and could be the best defensive player in the draft.

I would suggest having the Falcons take some other position. They took WRs in round 1 in 2004 and 2005, so unless we think they are the next Detroit Lions I would say WR is out of the question.

not too shabby. however, I seriously doubt matt millen takes a qb with the second overall pick. He is on thin ice, and needs to win now. He will probably draft the top offensive tackle Joe Thomas with this pick. much less of a risk and a greater need due to Kitna;s play at the end of last year.

umm, we have much greater needs right now than replacing JT who isn't going anywhere. Even if he did, we still have enough talent on that Dline to be better than decent...:shakeno:

Unless you want to put a bunch of forty years old out on that front seven, i suggest you rethink your statement. Honestly, how many good years do you think Taylor has in him? Three maybe? Its time to bring in some young talent on that front seven, Roth and Crowder are really the only talented young players we have in there. There is a reason that we got Vickerson, Evans, and the Wright brothers in such late rounds...they just aren't that good/need a lot of development. If Gaines Adams is still on the board and you don't want him, you know nothing about the draft or football in general.

Picking Adams is not about replacing JT...not yet, at least.

Imagine having Adams and JT line up at OLB (in the 3-4 scheme, which we will run the majority of the time), and the OL for the opposing team not knowing who's rushing and who's playing back...or an all-out blitz with both rushing. There isn't a QB in the NFL that would be able to escape both of them.

Scary !!
