    Well, I took a stab at it for the first time in my young life. It was kinda fun to prognosticate. Sure, I have some head-scratchers here and there, but rest assured there WILL BE fans scratching their heads come April 28th...


    1. Miami - Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College - Cornerstones in place at RB and WR. A potential franchise QB is what Parcells needs.

    2. St. Louis - Chris Long, DE, Virginia - The once heralded “Greatest Show on Turf” needs help on defense…and lots of it.

    3. Atlanta - Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville - Possibility of a trade out to stockpile picks. Signal caller is most glaring need.

    4. Oakland - Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas - Al Davis pick. Jake Long would be the smarter selection to protect Russell.

    5. Kansas City - Jake Long, OT, Michigan - Croyle will get another look. Long will help get the running game back on track as well as protect the young QB.

    6. New York Jets - Glen Dorsey, DT, LSU - If they stay in this slot, they cannot afford to pass up this force up the middle and strength against the run game.

    7. New England - Keith Rivers, LB, USC - The hoodie would love to move out of this spot, but if they stay put, they need some solid depth at LB.

    8. Baltimore - Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio State - If Ryan or Brohm is available, the Ravens will pull the trigger. If not, they need a pass rusher to complement Suggs or replace him if he signs elsewhere.

    9. Cincinnati - Sedrick Ellis, DT, USC - Agile for a big man. Can provide a solid interior foundation to a poor defensive front four.

    10. New Orleans - Kentwan Balmer, DT, North Carolina - As Cincy before them, another weak defensive line. Balmer could be a quick fix.

    11. Buffalo - DeSean Jackson, WR, Southern Cal - A legitimate complement to Lee Evans. Edwards will be a happy camper.

    12. Denver - Ryan Clady, OT, Boise State - Just what Cutler’s blind-side ordered. Will be a staple on their perennially solid OL for years.

    13. Carolina - Jeff Otah, OT, Pittsburgh - Panthers could choose a QB here if Delhomme still isn’t healthy. This big man will strengthen the running game.

    14. Chicago - Kenny Phillips, S, Miami (FL.) - Archuleta obviously was not the answer. Phillips is a better player right now.

    15. Detroit - Mike Jenkins, CB, South Florida - The offense should continue to gel. It’s time to draft something other than WR. A nice foundation with Boss Bailey and Kenoi Kennedy.

    16. Arizona - Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida - Will add a speed rush to the already solid front seven.

    17. Minnesota - Calais Campbell, DE, Miami (FL.) - The Vikings need a pass rush, Campbell should have an immediate impact.

    18. Houston - Leodis McKelvin, CB, Troy - If Clady and Otah aren’t available, look for Houston to nab McKelvin to help an average secondary.

    19. Philadelphia - Quentin Graves, DE, Auburn - The Jevon Kearse Experiment didn’t work out. Graves will take some pressure off Trent Cole.

    20. Tampa Bay - Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma - DeSean Jackson would be a luxury if he’s still around at 20, but Kelly will succeed as the eventual replacement of Ike Hilliard.

    21. Washington - Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College - A big receiver would be nice, but the ‘Skins need a successor to injury-prone Jon Jansen.

    22. Dallas - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, Tenn. St. - Outstanding cover skills. Will prove to be an excellent nickel corner and could supplant Anthony Henry as the starter opposite Terrence Newman.

    23. Pittsburgh - Chris Williams, OT, Vanderbilt - Big Ben endured many sacks in 2007. Look for Coach Tomlin to help out the franchise QB.

    24. Tennessee - Limas Sweed, WR, Texas - A poor attitude and wrist surgery causes Sweed to fall into the Titans’ laps…and Vince Young couldn’t be happier.

    25. Seattle - Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois - Holmgren jumpstarts Alexander’s replacement process.

    26. Jacksonville - Mario Manningham, WR, Michigan - Manningham and Jones will provide a nice WR tandem for the newly rich David Garrard.

    27. San Diego - Dan Connor, LB, Penn State - San Diego will go with the BPA. Connor will strengthen the LB corps led by Merriman.

    28. Dallas - Felix Jones, RB, Arkansas - A home-run threat every time he touches the ball. Huge value on ST as well. Jones will feel right at home being part of a 1-2 punch with Barber.

    29. San Francisco - Devin Thomas, WR, Michigan State - OC Mike Martz is looking for playmakers at WR. Thomas more than fits that bill. He has the potential as a #1 WR.

    30. Green Bay - Aqui Talib, CB, Kansas - Kenny Phillips would be the pick if he’s around, but Talib will provide depth behind an aging CB tandem.

    31. New York Giants - Pat Sims, DT, Auburn - Run stuffing at your service. Sims will thrive on this DL.


    I'd like to read your thoughts. Go ahead...I've got thick skin. ;)
