:::TOP TEN FREE AGENTS:::

1. Dwight Freeney DE (Indianapolis) - signs with Denver Broncos
2. Jerramy Stevens TE (Seattle) - signs with Carolina Panthers
3. Lance Briggs OLB (Chicago) - signs with Indianapolis Colts
4. Nate Clements CB (Buffalo) - signs with New England Patriots
5. Chris Simms QB (Tampa Bay) - signs with Minnesota Vikings
6. Leonard Davis OT (Arizona) - signs with Houston Texans
7. Cato June OLB (Indianapolis) - signs with Washington Redskins
8. Adalius Thomas OLB (Baltimore) - signs with Miami Dolphins
9. Ken Hamlin SS (Seattle) - signs with Atlanta Falcons
10. Asante Samuel CB (New England) - signs with Green Bay Packers


:::ROUND ONE:::

01. DETROIT LIONS (2-14) - Brady Quinn QB (Notre Dame)
::: With fingers crossed, the Lions pray that Quinn over Brohm is the right move. Brohm is much more refined, but the injury concerns really bother the Detroit brass.

02. CLEVELAND BROWNS (3-13) - Calvin Johnson WR (Georgia Tech)
::: An abstract choice, but much like Reggie Bush to New Orleans, the best player in the draft slipping to #2 can work out just fine. Charlie Frye is now loaded with offensive weapons, and if he can't get it done with Edwards, Johnson, and Winslow, it's time to look at a QB in 08'. Cleveland should be much improved, ala New Orleans, when next season rolls around.

03. OAKLAND RAIDERS (3-13) - Joe Thomas OT (Wisconsin)
::: A constant headache for Oakland this season has been a dreadful offensive line. Thomas is an aspirin, and should provide relief in no time at all.

04. MIAMI DOLPHINS (4-12) - Gaines Adams DE (Clemson)
::: Tough call between Adams and Moses. Adams has great size and speed and brings the kind of intensity to the table that Saban surely wants and needs.

05. GREEN BAY PACKERS (4-12) - Adrian Peterson RB (Oklahoma)
::: Almost has to be the pick here. Green Bay must get some life into that aging offense. I really believe they should take a hard look at Marshawn Lynch, but Peterson is probably the safer pick...but will he be the more dependable?

06. TENNESSEE TITANS (4-12) - Leon Hall CB (Michigan)
::: With the way that Michigan's defense is playing, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Hall jolt in to the top ten. There are few words that can be said about Pacman Jones, even fewer of them are pleasant...but pair him up with a shutdown corner on the other side and you may have something to build on in Tennessee.

07. BUFFALO BILLS (4-12) - Dwayne Jarrett WR (USC)
::: With the Losman ship rapidly starting to sink, they may take a hard look at Brian Brohm here, but the crew in Buffalo is a bit hard-headed and they may try to rail it out for one more season...and if you're gonna do that, you better have a few real good receivers to throw the ball to. Evans, Jarrett, and Price could be a winning combination.

08. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (4-12) - Brian Brohm QB (Louisville)
::: Simms bolts in free agency, Gradkowski (while showing promise) is probably not the answer. They may not have to suffer too long in rebuilding mode with Brohm at the helm. He is NFL ready and probably them most gifted and polished QB in the draft.

09. ARIZONA CARDINALS (4-12) - Sam Baker OT (USC)
::: Another team with an absolutely dreadful line. On top of that, Leonard Davis is sure to leave via free agency. The Cardinals dip into the USC well one more time and grab the top Junior OT in the draft.

10. HOUSTON TEXANS (5-11) - LaRon Landry S (LSU)
::: I have no idea who the Texans safeties are, and from looks of it, neither do the Texans. They have slowly been turning this defense into a monster and will benefit from grabbing the top safety in the draft.

11. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (6-10) - Ted Ginn Jr. WR (Ohio State)
::: It all boils down to adding playmakers to your offense. Ginn is not refined and probably has a long way to go as a receiver, but he is explosive and they will find a way to use him. Bryant, Ginn, and Vernon Davis is a pretty tight group.

12. DENVER BRONCOS (13-3) (swap with WAS) - Michael Griffin S (Texas)
::: The Broncos have the right to swap picks with Washington. They invoke their right, moving up to grab a premier safety in Michael Griffin...making and already stout defense, even scarier.

13. DALLAS COWBOYS (8-Cool - Reggie Nelson FS (Florida)
::: Gives Dallas exactly what they need, a premiere free safety to put alongside Roy Williams. Nelson, if he declares, may go higher with his rare breed of speed and athleticsm.

14. PITTSBURGH STEELERS (8-Cool - Patrick Willis ILB (Mississippi)
::: A hard choice between Willis and Posluszny, but Willis seems to be establishing himself as a hard-nosed, work-ethic, consistency player, and the Steelers love the sound of that. Is Joey Porter on his way out of Pittsburgh?

15. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (9-7) - Sidney Rice WR (South Carolina)
::: The Chiefs finally get an opportunity to grab a starting receiver via the draft. It's been a long time coming. Green and Huard are going to have a lot fun tossing it up to this guy.

16. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (12-4) (from SEA) - Quentin Moses OLB (Georgia)
::: New England always seems to be gifted with a slipping player, and that player usually pays big dividends (ala Maroney). Moses will fit well in New England and energize a dormant linebacker crew.

17. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (9-7) - Marshawn Lynch RB (California)
::: Another slipping player, another gift. The Eagles need to find a consistent run game, no matter what Andy Reid says. Lynch is a franchise back, and if you can get a franchise back @ #17...all the more power to you.

18. BALTIMORE RAVENS (9-7) - Kenny Irons RB (Auburn)
::: The Ravens stable of running backs are not as good as they believe. Irons can play smash-mouth, ball control offense for them, and that is exactly what they need.

19. ST.LOUIS RAMS (9-7) - Paul Posluszny OLB (Penn State)
::: Poz slipped a lot. There have been some questions raised about his abilities, and some want to label him a potential bust. I wouldn't go that far, but #19 seems about right, and the Rams could really solidfy a linebacker corps that already includes the MONSTER Will Witherspoon.

20. CAROLINA PANTHERS (10-6) - Brandon Meriweather S (Miami,FL)
::: After the Miami brawl, Meriweather found his draft status slipping, but he shouldn't fall too far...and the Panthers are waiting with open arms for this guy to fall into their laps.

21. NEW YORK JETS (10-6) - Alan Branch DT (Michigan)
::: Could Branch be the dominant NT they have been looking for? He's having a great season in Michigan and look for him to go even earlier than this.

22. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (10-6) - Charles Johnson DE (Georgia)
::: Jax could really use some new blood at the DE spot. Their defense has one great game, and blows it the next week. Johnson may help them find consistency.

23. ATLANTA FALCONS (10-6) - Quinn Pitcock DT (Ohio State)
::: He fits the mold of an Atlanta player. Tough and nasty...he will help plug the middle of an already effective defense.

24. CINCINNATI BENGALS (10-6) - Mkristo Bruce DE (Washington State)
::: Cincinnati has to start drafting high character players...Bruce is a quality character who has 100% intensity without the baggage. A great addition to the Bengals pass rush attack.

25. NEW YORK GIANTS (10-6) - Antoine Cason CB (Arizona)
::: Because of the wealth of great cornerbacks in back to back years, the Giants are getting away with robbery by getting Cason at this slot. He is neck and neck with Hall as the best CB in this draft, and they could use him in New York.

26. MINNESOTA VIKINGS (11-5) - Darrelle Revis CB (Pittsburgh)
::: While they don't look it on paper, the Vikes are another team with quiet CB concerns. It is not as big of a need as receiver, but there is no value here in taking one. Antoine Winfield is aging and may eventually make the transition to strong safety. Fred Smoot has not given the production that he was paid for. Cedric Griffin may be a quality #2 guy in time. The rest of the crew is just joke, especially Ronyell Whitaker. Tomlin will surely recommend the selection of a shutdown corner and Revis is essentially that, and might eventually be considered the top CB to come out of this draft.

27. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (12-4) - Marcus McCauley CB (Fresno State)
::: A rush of corners is on. The Patriots may lose their best CB, Asante Samuel to free agency...and that's not saying much. McCauley is as talented as the rest of the wonderful value corners in this draft. You basically can't make a bad pick at corner in the first round of this draft.

28. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS (12-4) - Aaron Rouse S (Virginia Tech)
::: The Chargers are slowly rebuilding a poor secondary. Rouse is a guy that has risen a lot as of late and might be considered a steal in a years time.

29. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (12-4) - Brandon Siler ILB (Florida)
::: New Orleans, the most dramatic reversal of team fortune in recent years, is gifted with this nice addition to a group of linebackers that already consists of above average over-achievers.

30. WASHINGTON REDSKINS (6-10) (swap with DEN) - Daymeion Hughes CB (California)
::: Carlos Rogers has been acceptable, but Springs injury concerns on the other side may force this selection. Once again, a great value pick, you can't go wrong at CB in this draft.

31. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (13-3) - DeMarcus "Tank" Tyler DT (N.C. State)
::: They have had some issues at this position this year. Simon and Reagor are big question marks for next year. That leaves the recently aquired Anthony McFarland as the top DT on the roster. This is good selection as Tank Tyler has been exploding up the boards.

32. CHICAGO BEARS (14-2) - Josh Beekman OG (Boston College)
::: I feel that this is a little too high for either of the tight ends, and even though fans may be screaming for it, this is the safer pick. Beekman is the best OG available and will help a shaky but adequate line become even better.

:::ROUND TWO:::

01. DETROIT LIONS (2-14) - LaMarr Woodley DE (Michigan)
02. CLEVELAND BROWNS (3-13) - Levi Brown OT (Penn State)
03. OAKLAND RAIDERS (3-13) - Marcus Thomas DT (Florida)
04. MIAMI DOLPHINS (4-12) - Justin Blalock OG/OT (Texas)
05. GREEN BAY PACKERS (4-12) - Jeff Samardzija WR (Notre Dame)
06. TENNESSEE TITANS (4-12) - Doug Free OT (Northern Illinois)
07. BUFFALO BILLS (4-12) - Drew Stanton QB (Michigan State)
08. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (4-12) - H.B. Blades ILB (Pittsburgh)
09. ARIZONA CARDINALS (4-12) - Rufus Alexander OLB (Oklahoma)
10. HOUSTON TEXANS (5-11) - Fred Bennett CB (South Carolina)
11. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (6-10) - Buster Davis ILB (Florida State)
12. NEW YORK JETS (from WAS) (6-10) - Michael Bush RB (Louisville)
13. DALLAS COWBOYS (8-Cool - Troy Smith QB (Ohio State)
14. PITTSBURGH STEELERS (8-Cool - Victor Abiamiri DE (Notre Dame)
15. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (9-7) - Brandon Mebane DT (California)
16. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (9-7) - Jake Long OT (Michigan)
17. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (9-7) - Xavier Adibi OLB (Virginia Tech)
18. BALTIMORE RAVENS (9-7) - Kyle Young C (Fresno State)
19. ST.LOUIS RAMS (9-7) - Tom Zbikowski SS (Notre Dame)
20. CAROLINA PANTHERS (10-6) - Justin Warren ILB (Texas A&M)
21. NEW YORK JETS (10-6) - Adam Carriker DE (Nebraska)
22. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (10-6) - Josh Gattis S (Wake Forest)
23. ATLANTA FALCONS (10-6) - Robert Meachem WR (Tennessee)
24. CINCINNATI BENGALS (10-6) - Zach Miller TE (Arizona State)
25. NEW YORK GIANTS (10-6) - Dan Connor LB (Penn State)
26. MINNESOTA VIKINGS (11-5) - Jason Hill WR (Washington State)
27. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (12-4) - Paul Williams WR (Fresno State)
28. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS (12-4) - Johnnie Lee Higgins WR (UTEP)
29. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (12-4) - DeAndre Jackson CB (Iowa State)
30. DENVER BRONCOS (13-3) - Justin Harrell DT (Tennessee)
31. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (13-3) - Tim Crowder DE (Texas)
32. CHICAGO BEARS (14-2) - Greg Olsen TE (Miami,FL)

1) We let Dwight Freeney walk and sign Lance Briggs? The way the Colts seem to operate is we replace our linebackers, we don't chase them. (See Marcus Washington, David Thornton, Mike Peterson and you can add Cato June to that list as well)

2) Love the pick!

Decent pick since CJ and Gaines Adams are both gone. Another player that we might look at here would be Laron Landry...

Another decent pick here..

I would rather see us either take Buster Davis to give us a solified MLB for the future or Adam Carriker to play on the other side of the D-Line from Kyle Vanden Bosch.

I like the Jets picks besides 2a. The only reason why is because Leon has looked great and can carry about 20-25 carries a game effectivly. However, he does need a little help. Houston has been injured so we cant judge if he can be the help Washington needs or not but if not, I Think they should draft Leonard as a FB/RB and he can have about 10 carries a game.

Love the second round fins pick, disagree with the draft order a bit. As for the FA, I like the idea, but I think we would persue Nate Clements harder if we were to draft Adams to work in as a tweener. Our secondary needs more help then the front seven.

Brian Westbrook is having the best season of his career, despite nagging injuries. He's on pace for close to 1,100 yards rushing and 800 yards receiving. We won't take a RB in the first. We'd go S, CB, or OT there.

We need veteran help at O-line. We drafted a tackle a guard last year and should address the line via Free Agency.

However, we do need a RB and Adrian Peterson is the best in the draft. Jordan dances around too much and has no burst through the whole, our backup is in his contract year and is injury prone.

1.)Mkristo Bruce -Postion good like his size but first time I think I've even heard him mentioned in rnd 1...
2.)Zach Miller - If Bengaks take a TE this is the TE I want...but hard see em taking a TE with need at WLB,DE and DT.










::TOP TEN FREE AGENTS:::
11.)Daniel Graham too the bengals =)

we wouldn't sign Hamlin considering Milloy still has 2 more years under contract.

horrible pick. we will not draft a WR. we would re-sign Lelie and then draft a DE like Tim Crowder or a S here.
