    Might be a repost, let me know.

    1. Miami (0-13) The Pick: Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU
    The Buzz: The Dolphins are a wreck, and the team obviously has holes everywhere. Dorsey is a dominant inside force.

    2. New England (from San Francisco (3-10)) The Pick: Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas*
    The Buzz: Patriots strike it rich and get the premier feature back and best player in this class.

    3. St. Louis (3-10) The Pick: Chris Long, DE, Virginia
    The Buzz: The Rams defense must improve along the front four.

    4. NY Jets (3-10) The Pick: James Laurinaitis, LB, Ohio State*
    The Buzz: The Jets are looking for another impact defender for their front seven.

    5. Atlanta (3-9) The Pick: Brian Brohm, QB, Louisville
    The Buzz: The Falcons are a total disaster this season and the quarterback spot is their highest priority.

    6. Oakland (4-9) The Pick: Jake Long, OT, Michigan
    The Buzz: The Raiders are in the top 10 again and must protect franchise QB JaMarcus Russell.

    7. Kansas City (4-9) The Pick: Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss*
    The Buzz: The Chiefs' line must improve for this offense to return to the upper echelon in the league.

    8. Baltimore (4-9) The Pick: Antoine Cason, CB, Arizona
    The Buzz: The Ravens defense needs younger talent on the corner, and Cason is a top-flight cover man.

    9. Cincinnati (5-8) The Pick: Steve Slaton, RB, West Virginia*
    The Buzz: The Bengals are looking for an impact playmaker out of the backfield for this offense.

    10. Carolina (5-8) The Pick: Dan Connor, LB, Penn State
    The Buzz: The Panthers are looking to solidify their struggling defense.

    11. Chicago (5-8) The Pick: Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College
    The Buzz: The Bears will jump at a chance for a future leader on offense.

    12. Philadelphia (5-8) The Pick: Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma
    The Buzz: The Eagles are looking to stretch the field with a blue-chip receiver.

    13. Arizona (6-7) The Pick: Sedrick Ellis, DT, Southern Cal
    The Buzz: The Cardinals defense gives up too many big plays and needs a leader and anchor in the middle.

    14. Houston (6-7) The Pick: Kenny Phillips, FS, Miami*
    The Buzz: The Texans are looking to continue to build a playoff-caliber defense, especially in the secondary.

    15. Denver (6-7) The Pick: Early Doucet, WR, LSU
    The Buzz: Mike Shanahan wants more playmakers to help Jay Cutler develop.

    16. Washington (6-7) The Pick: Calais Campbell, DE, Miami
    The Buzz: Joe Gibbs wants a big-time pass rusher for the Redskins' front four.

    17. Detroit (6-7) The Pick: Andre' Woodson, QB, Kentucky
    The Buzz: The Lions are in search of a future leader on offense and may take a chance on Woodson.

    18. New Orleans (5-7) The Pick: Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State*
    The Buzz: The defense continues to be the Achilles' heel for the Saints.

    19. Buffalo (7-6) The Pick: Ryan Clady, OT, Boise State*
    The Buzz: The Bills may draft into the deep offensive tackle class this spring.

    20. Minnesota (7-6) The Pick: Reggie Smith, CB, Oklahoma*
    The Buzz: The Vikings may not be able to pass on a highly regarded defensive back for this emerging unit.

    21. Tennessee (7-6) The Pick: Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio State*
    The Buzz: Gholston could certainly help the Titans improve their pass rush.

    25. Seattle (9-4) The Pick: Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College
    The Buzz: The Seahawks hope to address their offensive line early in the draft.

    26. NY Giants (9-4) The Pick: Brandon Flowers, CB, Virginia Tech*
    The Buzz: The Giants have major problms in the secondary that need to be addressed.

    27. Jacksonville (9-4) The Pick: Derrick Harvey, DE, Florida*
    The Buzz: The Jaguars love those Gators defenders, and Harvey is a good one.

    28. Pittsburgh (9-4) The Pick: Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU*
    The Buzz: The Steelers are looking to fortify their front three, and Jackson has the potential fill a role.

    29. Green Bay (11-2) The Pick: Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois*
    The Buzz: The Packers want a well-developed feature back to balance this offense.

    30. San Francisco (from Indianapolis (11-2)) The Pick: James Hardy, WR, Indiana*
    The Buzz: The 49ers offense needs another playmaker to open up the passing game.

    31. Dallas (12-1) The Pick: Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas*
    The Buzz: The Cowboys defense needs a top-flight cover man opposite Terence Newman.


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

    I disagree with a few of them, for example, Bengals taking a RB instead of an LB or some other defensive player? Probably not gonna happen.

    They have the two guys I wanted going before our first pick too, and to two teams I don't like. Malcolm Kelly (WR)to the Eagles and Malcolm Jenkins (CB) to the Saints. But I like our picks, and I'd prefer this to bundling them up to go after McFadden.

    meh, you edited the post.

    I have mixed emotion about D. Jackson. That guy just seem too small but is a player.

    I like Talib, I think he'll make a very good NFL CB.

    Arrrggggg . . . . I really hope the Pats don't get McFadden.

    That said, I think the Pats will try to trade the pick anyway.

    I wish SF could win just 1-2 more games this year! :mad:

    What does he weigh, around 165-170 lbs?

    They have him at 172, which is probably generous. I don't like that pick, I wish we could package something together for the Bengals and get Malcolm Kelly or maybe Early Doucet.

    I'm also not sold that the Jet's take a WR, they'll take Brohm if he's there. Clemens has been pretty poor.

    I think if you are picking 20+ that DB and LB are the real value spots

    BTW -- if you are thinking about packaging those picks, the "chart" would say that those two would get us to #9ish -- packaged with our #2, we could climb to #6 -- the CLE #1 and our #2 would get us to 15ish.

    If the Jets want a QB, they'll send their second rounder to the Browns for Quinn (perhaps throw in a conditional 2009 pick). They'll want defense with their first rounder and this trade reeks of a Mangini-Crenell-Weiss orgy.
