Team Player Pos. School
1. Oakland JaMarcus Russell QB LSU
2. Detroit Adrian Peterson RB Oklahoma Matt Millen has struggled with top-10 picks in his stint as general manager of the Lions. Peterson would be a safe and popular choice. Detroit had success using first-round picks on Oklahoma runners Steve Owens (1970) and Billy Sims (1980).
3. Cleveland Calvin Johnson WR Georgia Tech
4. Tampa Bay Brady Quinn QB Notre Dame
5. Arizona Joe Thomas OT Wisconsin
6. Washington Gaines Adams DE Clemson
7. Minnesota LaRon Landry S LSU
8. Atlanta Leon Hall CB Michigan
9. Miami Alan Branch DT Michigan
10. Houston Amobi Okoye DT Louisville

Interesting to see that the Goose has Tampa picking Quinn. I have read countless articles noting that TBay is after CJ, Peterson, and possibly Okoye. I strongly agree with Goose, however, that Tampa Bay will be looking at QB.

Alan Branch? gah i dont understand why people think we need a DL. the Wright bros, Roth, and Evans are doing perfectly fine so far.

DL is a need on this team. Roth is a promising player, but the others are just development players at this point. Did you read that Manny is at 345? I mean c'mon, anyone who is banking on him to be anything at this point needs to take off the rose coloured glasses.

whats wrong with 345? he can clog holes. Wilkinson, Sam Adams, Warren Sapp are all "jabba the hut" size...they clog holes. manny was real big when he played his first year here...and he did so well.

So well? I think that is a stretch.

Tampa is the dark horse in all this. They have Garcia, Sims, Gradkowski and the rights to Plummer, they seem like the last team that would go with Quinn. Ultimately, I see them desperately try to trade down if CJ goes first overall, and then go with Okoye.

I would be very surprised if they elected to go with Quinn, but they could try to pull a draft and trade.

More specifically, DE is a need. Not DT. If going DL I would prefer Jamaal Anderson, a true DE.

Rick's 1st mock and his 2nd generally look very different. I'd pay much more heed to his 2nd one than this one.

I do know that viz a viz Quinn and Tampa, that Gruden was blown away by Brady's private workout for the Bucs on Saturday. Take that as you will, but remember, Gruden is a QB guy and when he falls in love with a guy, he really falls.
