for starters, my draft has us trading our 18th overall pick to the Cincinatti Bengals for their 24th and 91st pick (3rd round). This gives us 4 picks on the first day, in which case we can address OLB, OG, FS, NT in that order. dont think that this trade isnt beneficial for the Bengals either, they are in need of a DB, and hey, so are 3 of the 5 teams that draft inbetween 18 and 24. a few prospects going there might be Jimmy Williams and Tye Hill. Now if the draft pans out, and lets say only 1 of the two or even both is left when we pick at 18, knowing that 3 teams may draft the player that they want, they will want to assure the pick and move up, requiring them to trade with us at #18. Now that you understand that this trade is very possible, let me start on why no team inbetween 18 and 24 is going to take one of the two players i have chosen for us to take. the Chargers seem to be set at LB, and the chiefs, well they need help in their secondary. The Broncos with the loss of Mike Anderson are probably looking for a RB and if not that they need a DE. Notice that i skipped the Pats and the Bucs are also left over, these two teams are the only teams that pose a threat to drafting either of the players that i would like at the 24 spot. Lucky for us Corey Dillon is injury prone and lets say not young, so the pats are probably looking at lendale white or maybe addai, or williams (most likely lendale white). The Bucs on the other hand are getting old at CB (R. Barber), old at DE (S. Rice) and unfortunatly at LB as well (Derrick Brooks). but hey they are also in need of Oline and at 23 Mcneil isnt a bad choice and they may be happy to take winston as well. so with all that in the bag, with the 24th selection of the 2006 draft the dallas cowboys select Manny Lawson/Bobby Carpenter (i need to decide soon). Like i mentioned before, i said we would go with an O-lineman in round two didnt i? and here is where i say the cowboys go with Taitusi Latui (OG). Round 3 (we have two picks, 1 of our own, 80th and 1 from the bengals, 91st): so here is where people might be shocked at what i have to say, but hey with allen failing his physicals and people having concern about his hip injury his stock has dropped accordingly. i had him gone in the 2nd for a while, but after hearing about the major concerns with his physical and the fact that Safeties never go where they are expected to go and usually drop a little on draft day. so now after all of this Jason Allen will fall to us at the 80th pick, and will be the steal of the draft, giving us a potentially solid safety to support Roy Williams. Round 3 is not done yet, we still have 1 last need for day 1: NOSE TACKLE! Babatunde Oshinowo - from what i hear about him on this board he seems like a great guy to play NT and fits parcells prototype for a NT at 310 lbs. Round 4, sadly we have no pick. Round 5 - Kellen Clemens, i didnt see all to much of his play, but my brother goes to oregon, my godfather is the biggest ducks fan in the world. he put up good #s and if he fell to us in Round 5 he would be a great steal. and i dont think he will follow joey harringtons footsteps. round 6 - Chris Hannon (WR) he reminds of me Chris Henry of the bengals statistically (size, speed, and a good vertical) Round 7 - Draft a DB incase one of ours goes down and for special teams.
