Who are your picks?

Winner: New England
They filled needs with high talent players at SS in Chung and CB in Butler, and have a back-up NT in Brace who they also kept from the Dolphins. They also saved money by staying out of the 1st round and got a high potential player in Vollmer.
Other Choice: Detroit: The Lions got the franchise QB they've needed for years, a play maker TE, and a CB/S that can help repair their defensive backfield.

Loser: Dallas
Unlike Chicago who also didn't pick, the Cowboys didn't get a franchise QB for their picks, they got an underachieving WR with a bad attitude to replace their old one in TO.
Other Choice: Oakland- Bey was a reach but not as bad as Mitchell in the 2nd round. Al Davis' franchise should be taken away from him.

If Cincy went with Monroe instead of Smith, I'd say they were the biggest winner, because Rey M. was a steal at that spot.

NYG are a close 2nd. Nicks/Sintim/Beatty is a draft I would've been thrilled with for Miami.

Ultimately, the Jags are the big winners for me. Getting their franchise LT at #8 was a steal and getting their RT in the 2nd round was another great value.

The Raiders. Not even close. Major reaches at each pick, the worst being DHB at #7. Troy Williamson will look like a good pick compared to DHB IMO.

Lions, Giants, and Jags had great day 1 drafts.

Oakland without a doubt is the biggest LOSER; they're AWFUL!!!!!

i hate the pats selections...derius butler is a flop...ron brace isnt vince wilfork...chung is the only decent pick in the bunch...their oline is slowly falling apart...i do not have the pats as day 1 winners...

The only thing I like about the Pats draft is that Wilfork might walk next year and come home to Miami.

My winners are the Ravens (Oher is a top 15 talent and Kruger is a good prospect) and the Bengals (Smith and Rey are tough). Cincy has also pulled some steals today with Michael Johnson, Chase Coffman and Luigs.

The Raiders will never have a sane draft again until Al Davis is dead
