009 - Brady Quinn (QB - Notre Dame)
040 - Dwayne Jarrett (WR - USC)
060 - Arron Sears (OT/OG - Tennessee)
071 - Quentin Moses (DE/OLB - Georgia)
108 - Ryan Harris (OT - Notre Dame)
181 - Ryan Smith (CB - Florida)
199 - Daren Stone (S - Maine)
219 - Elliot Vallejo (OT/OG - Cal-Davis)
238 - David Ball (WR - New Hampshire)

-------------------------

Like Leinart last year and Rodgers the year before him, I think (Or at least pray) Quinn is going to fall further than most expect. Obviously I can also see us trading up with the Redskins instead of rolling the dice and hoping the Vikings pass on him. That said, I suspect the Vikings will pass on him, especially considering their decision to draft Tarvaris Jackson in the second round last year.

Dwayne Jarrett produced at one of the top schools in the nation. Sure, he has not been timing that great, but the guy knows how to play. I like him at forty and think Cameron can make him an NFL star.

I think we will be giving our offensive line a nice injection of youth and potential by drafting Arron Sears, Ryan Harris and Elliot Vallejo. I think it is likely two of the three will become good starters down the road. Worse case scenario: I cannot see Sears being any worse than a decent starter with the other two being serviceable backups. Best case scenario: All three become solid starters.

Quentin Moses strikes me as a boom or bust kind of guy. I love his versatility, and think he is worth the risk for our fourth pick in the draft...

Ryan Smith and Daren Stone would probably contribute immediately as backups and on special teams, and who knows how good they could become.

I love producers and David Ball was a producer, breaking Jerry Rice's all-time scoring records. He has been timed slow and has not impressed in workouts, but I think he is worth a seventh round pick. I could see him as our fifth option at WR this year, behind Chambers, Booker, Jarrett and Hagan. Who knows, maybe he will be able to pack on some pounds and become a decent receiving TE down the road...

I will not be surprised if we trade Booker or Chambers to a team desperate for help at WR, even though I think we should probably keep both of them for at least one more year. If we deal one of them, I suspect we will draft a TE somewhere...

Obviously it is difficult to address every area of concern in one particular draft. I think we can afford to deal with our aging defensive line next year. I like Andre Fluellen, Marcus Harrison, Sedrick Ellis, Frank Okam and Glenn Dorsey. I think we ought to draft one of these top defensive tackles with our first pick next year.

Finally, if we draft Quinn I think we are likely to dump Culpepper and trade a 2008 conditional draft pick to the Chiefs for Trent Green, hopefully allowing us to slowly groom Quinn while still being competitive this season. I would also consider signing a veteran journeyman to compete with Lemon for the backup slot. I would prefer not to play Quinn until at least his second season, and who knows if another concussion will sideline Green for good...

Well, this is probably about all I am going to say about the 2007 NFL Draft until it is actually over with.

I can't wait to hear what you guys think...Go Phins!!!

If it happened like that I would be extremely happy, although I'd rather have Sidney Rice than Dwayne Jarrett (and he has a MUCH better chance of still being there) at #40.

Thought Jarret at 40 would be nice, I don't think there is any possibility of him dropping that low. Not sure if Harris will drop to 4th either. If Harris was in the 4th, grab him and don't look back. I'd be a fan of taking him in the 3rd even.

Sorry but you get an F.

Quinn won't be there. D

As far as Jarrett goes, we have 7 WR's on the roster and Jarrett is almost a carbon copy of Hagan. Hagan is faster and quicker,Jarrett is a little taller.
But unless we trade Chambers or Booker,(and your mock shows no hypothetical trade) taking any receiver who isn't a P,K/returner is absurd.
The best he could acheive as a rookie would be fourth, and he would have to beat out a couple of blazing fast veterans if they stay healthy just to make the team. That pick is nuts and it will never happen. F

Sears is a good gaurd but out of what seems like thousands of mocks I've looked at none of them has him sliding that far. F Can't happen.

Even if Moses slides that far why would we take a chance on that underacheiver who is falling like a rock???? We badly need to improve the secondary and build the offensive line. Your not addressing these issues. D

Harris is lousy and has been falling in ranking for weeks. If he does start in the NFL it won't be as a rookie. We need somebody who at least has some kind of shot at becoming LT. It's bad news if we have to break up the continuity on the right side of our line, it's the only half decent part we had last year. D

We need an elite corner and your answer is a guy who runs a 4.63 forty. F

Wendling and Craig Dahl kicked a** at the combine but your answer is another slow guy with character issues. F

Elliot Vallejo-Love his name but a gaurd from a small school, maybe for the practice squad as an undrafted rookie FA. D

Ball is too slow for a guy 6"1" 200. C'mon a 4.7, Joe Staley is faster than him at 6'6" 309. F

I would prefer a little more speed at WR. I actually like steve smith better than jarett. David ball will probably go in the late 5th mid 6th his stock is on the rise. I would like to get yamon figurs in the early 6th rd. This guy impresses me for some reason besides his speed. He is almost as fast as ginn jr. Could be that david hester/marques colston gem in this years draft.

Quinn I like. Jarrett sure if Sidney Rice is off the board. I'd rather see us draft Soliai and Hickman with our last two picks to solidfy the DL/OLB corps.

I'd love for Jarrett to fall to 40 but I doubt it will happen. Even if he falls out of round 1, I can't see him getting past Oakland or Tampa Bay (whichever one doesn't get Calvin Johnson).

I think you're placing too much emphasis on production in college. Chad Jackson had 88 catches for 900 yards and 9 TDs at UF in 2005. He had 13 catches for 152 yards and 3 TDs last year with the Patsies.

Production in college is no guarantee of production in the NFL. And vice versa. Lack of production in college doesn't mean a player won't produce in the NFL.

But since we can't interview these guys. Or watch them workout. Their performance in college is one of the only ways we have to evaluate them.

That being said. I don't think Brady Quinn will fall. And I don't think we'll trade up for him. But I don't know anything for sure. If he does get past the Raiders, Lions, Redskins, and Vikings, then I'd say he has a better than fair shot of getting past the Bucs and Browns. And, of course, the Cardinals and Falcons aren't drafting him.

Dwayne Jarrett is too slow. Mueller is looking to increase team speed, and I would be shocked if he choose Jarrett over Rice.

Arron Sears is a possibility. But I really think the Fins are going to take a Center and move Hadnot back to Guard. Shelton will stay at RG. Toledo and Liwienski will provide backup.

Quentin Moses? Maybe. There's a million different ways the Fins could go in the 3rd. Impossible to predict, and will depend on what we do in the 1st and 2nd, of course.

Ryan Harris or Adam Koets are very likely picks if we don't get Levi Brown in the 1st. But I'm hoping for Levi Brown.

I prefer Courtney Brown to Ryan Smith.
Does Daren Stone play special teams?
I prefer Kasey Studdard to Elliot Vallejo.
And I don't like the David Ball pick at all. Too slow. Mueller is looking to increase team speed, not decrease it.

He does not have the 4.3 or 4.40 speed but he showed production is college with almost 60 touchdowns and over 4500 receiving yards for a 6th or 7th round pick I think I would take my chances on D. Ball

He does not have the 4.3 or 4.40 speed but he showed production is college with almost 60 touchdowns and over 4500 receiving yards for a 6th or 7th round pick I think I would take my chances on D. Ball

The only problem with his college production is the fact that he played for New Hampshire. Yeah, he had 12 catches for 179 yards and 3 TDs against Dartmouth, but how will he do against New England?

Ball wouldn't be a bad 7th round pick at all. But I don't see him cracking our roster if we draft a WR in the earlier rounds. Chambers, Booker, Hagan, Hakim, Vick, Campbell, a rookie, and Ball? He doesn't return kicks, either, so he's not going to make the team that way.

It does seem like, "Hey why not take a shot on a guy who was so productive (at any level)," but not when you might be passing up on a special teams standout like Craig Dahl. Look at it this way: Would you rather have a potential Pro Bowler on special teams or a WR who doesn't even make the roster?

Booker may become trade bait. (Just my hopes). Craig Dahl is that you. I am all for picking up who the team thinks is the best player at that time. I reallly like Yamon Figurs

Finole

7th round picks rarely pan out. (Check out the list below.) The players to note are Derrick Pope, Yeremiah Bell, Pete Stoyanovich, J.B. Brown, Reyna Thompson, Fuad Reveiz, Dan Johnson, Fulton Walker, William Judson, Joe Rose, Uwe von Schamann, and Glenn Blackwood.

DBs, TEs, and Kickers have been the most successful. Unless you're gambling on a former standout returning from injury, I wouldn't draft any other position if I was a GM.

Thus, Craig Dahl makes the most sense.

Other 7th rounders I like:

TE Dante Rosario, Oregon 40-time: 4.78
Former FB who is also a special teams standout.

OG Kasey Studdard, Texas
Mean and nasty. A potential starter.

SS Melvin Bullitt, Texas A&M 40-time: 4.48
The #1 prospect coming out of A&M, Bullitt opened a lot of eyes at his Pro Day. Might go in the 6th.

C Mark Fenton, Colorado
CB Tim Mixon, California 40-time: 4.55
Fenton and Mixon are both returning from injuries. Could be steals if they return to form.

TE Brent Celek, Cincinnati 40-time: 4.79
The #1 prospect coming out of Cincinnati. Great hands. Great receiver. Not much of a blocker, though.

Potential UFA Tight Ends:
TE Julius McClellan, North Carolina Centra 40-time: 4.56
TE Braden Jones, Southern Illinois 40-time: 4.58
TE Rudy Sylvan, Ohio University 40-time: 4.77

Potential UFA DBs:
KR/CB Marquice Cole, NorthWestern 40-time: 4.35
S Geoff Bean, Colgate 40-time: 4.44
S Rashad Barksdale, Albany (NY) 40-time: 4.46
S Roderick Rogers, Wisconsin 40-time: 4.47 (injured)
S David Lofton, Stanford 4.48
S Andre Kirkland, Kent St 40-time: 4.54
S David Overstreet, Missouri 40-time: 4.65
