1. (2-14) Oakland Raiders – QB Jamarcus Russell (LSU) Oakland needs a QB…period. Al Davis will not let Oakland pass on the upside of Jamarcus Russell. Jamarcus Russell is extremely athletic and can get outside of the pocket which he will need to do from time to time with that horrible offensive line. Andrew Walter is just too bad and Aaron Brooks is too inconsistent.

2. (3-13) Detroit Lions – OT Joe Thomas (Wisconsin) Detroit ranked 32nd in rushing yards per game and was 31st in sacks allowed. Jon Kitna can man the ship for maybe another year and Joe Thomas will help solidify their line for a future QB. He will free up space for Kevin Jones to flourish and help take pressure off of the QB.

3. (4-12) Cleveland Browns – RB Adrian Peterson (Oklahoma) Cleveland was in this same position when they drafted Gerard Warren instead of LaDainian Tomlinson. They will not make that mistake again. With Joe Thomas off of the board they draft a RB who can hit the hole hard and fast since with Cleveland’s line the holes aren’t open for long anyway.

4. (4-12) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – WR Calvin Johnson (Georgia Tech) Tampa Bay re-signed Chris Simms but needs for weapons around him. Joey Galloway is getting old and Michael Clayton is not getting it done and may be a solid #2 WR opposite Calvin Johnson who will demand tons of attention.

5. (5-11) Arizona Cardinals – DE Gaines Adams (Clemson) Arizona struggles versus the pass so much because they cannot get pressure on the QB. Gaines Adams opposite Bert Berry will give Arizona a pass rush that could wreck havoc on offenses and help out the secondary.

6. (5-11) Washington Redskins – DT Alan Branch (Michigan) Washington has the 27th worst rush defense and had a pathetic 19 sacks…that’s last. Alan Branch will command double teams and clog up the middle. He is also quick enough to get to the QB. Alan Branch is a rare specimen at DT that Washington could really use.

7. (6-10) Minnesota Vikings – WR Dwayne Jarrett (USC) Minnesota made a huge mistake in drafting Troy Williamson but may be a nice compliment to a huge WR like Dwayne Jarrett. It was obvious how much a QB can miss a WR like Randy Moss and they need a dominant WR like they had in Randy Moss. Minnesota would like to give QB Tarvaris Jackson another year to develop and a real weapon at WR before they go searching for another QB to replace 100 year old Brad Johnson.

8. (6-10) Houston Texans – CB Leon Hall (Michigan) Houston is trying to build a defense and with a CB opposite Dunta Robinson that can not only cover but also tackle would really help out. This will help give their defensive line more time to get to the QB and help shore up the rush defense.

9. (6-10) Miami Dolphins – S LaRon Landry (LSU) Miami has a great defense but may be weakest at the safety position. Can you even name a safety on Miami, except for you Dolphins fans of course. Miami used to be known for its stout secondary and LaRon Landry will help solidify that a bring a toughness to the secondary that is has lacked.

10. (7-9) Atlanta Falcons – S Reggie Nelson (Florida) Atlanta ranked 29th in pass defense and only recorded 12 interceptions all year. Reggie Nelson is a ball hawk who will immediately contribute with an average Chris Crocker and aging Lawyer Milloy.

11. (7-9) San Francisco 49ers – ILB Patrick Willis (Ole Miss) San Francisco will draft an ILB with the two best safeties off the board. San Francisco may be weakest at LB even with the addition of Manny Lawson last year. Derek Smith is coming off the worst year of his career so why not fill that weakness with the best ILB in the draft.

12. (7-9) Buffalo Bills – OT Levi Brown (Penn State) Buffalo ranked 27th in rushing offense and 28th in passing offense. With Lee Evans, Willis McGahee, and J.P. Losman developing the only real problem is the offensive line. Levi Brown will help protect J.P. Losman in an offensive line that allowed 47 sacks and he will open holes for Willis McGahee.

13. (8-8) St. Louis Rams – OLB Paul Posluszny (Penn State) St. Louis ranked 31st in rush defense but with Leonard Little, Jimmy Kennedy, and the recent acquisition of La’Roi Glover, St. Louis will draft the best OLB available. Dexter Coakley is getting older and Brandon Chillar is not that good. With Pisa Tinoisamoa, Will Witherspoon and Paul Posluszny the Rams should have a very solid LB corps.

14. (8-8) Carolina Panthers – QB Brady Quinn (Notre Dame) Carolina is ecstatic that Brady Quinn falls to them much like Matt Leinart fell last year and Aaron Rodgers the year before. Jake Delhomme is starting to slow and Chris Weinke is just plain awful. Much like Matt Leinart, Brady Quinn will fall into a great situation with weapons all around him.

15. (8-8) Pittsburgh Steelers – CB Darrelle Revis (Pittsburgh) Pittsburgh has always had a weak secondary. They have always been able to stop the run but have never been able to match their run defense with their pass defense. A tough local kid who can cover and tackle is exactly what Pittsburgh needs. He could really shut down half of the football field…how scary could their defense be?

16. (8-8) Green Bay Packers – RB Marshawn Lynch (California) Green Bay has a young and solid defense that could use a talented young safety like Michael Griffin, but with Ahman Green slowing down and being in the last year of his contract, Green Bay needs a young RB who can take pressure off of Brett Favre. Marshawn Lynch has a burst that Ahman Green cannot give them.

17. (8-8) Jacksonville Jaguars – S Michael Griffin (Texas) Jacksonville has a very good defense but may be oldest at the safety position. Deon Grant is pretty solid but is going to be a free agent and Donovin Darius is coming off an injury and is getting older. Michael Griffin is a hard nosed player that defines what the Jaksonville defense is all about and should fit in nicely.

18. (8-8) Cincinnati Bengals – DE Jamaal Anderson (Arkansas) Cincinnati will pass on a DT because Jamaal Anderson is still on the board. With Justin Smith most likely leaving via free agency, a pass rusher opposite Robert Geathers would really help generate more sacks and help out Cincinnati’s secondary generate more turnovers. Something Cincinnati’s defense thrives off of.

19. (8-8) Tennessee Titans – WR Ted Ginn Jr. (Ohio State) Tennessee ranked 30th in passing offense and Jeff Fisher would like nothing more than to give Vince Young a legitimate weapon at WR. With Ted Ginn Jr. and Pacman Jones, Tennessee will have the most dangerous KR/PR combo in the NFL. Ted Ginn Jr. will stretch the field even more giving Vince Young and Travis Henry even more room to run. Drew Bennett and Bobby Wade are free agents as well which may also encourage Tennessee to go with a WR.

20. (8-8) New York Giants – DT Amobi Okoye (Louisville) New York has had some real problems defending the pass as they ranked 28th against it. They will not draft another CB however with the signing of Sam Madison and the drafting of CB Corey Webster in the second round two years ago. They totaled only 32 sacks all year and off the top of my head cannot even name a DT for New York. Amobi Okoye will help put pressure on the QB and help that young secondary with a better pass rush.

21. (9-7) Denver Broncos – DE Quentin Moses (Georgia) Denver needs a DE who can make an immediate impact. The only reason the rush defense has been so good is because of the outstanding play of their LB corps. Kenard Lang and Ebenezer Ekuban are mediocre but Quentin Moses could give Denver a much improved pass rush from the DE spot. With the unfortunate passing of Darrent Williams, Denver will need a better pass rush to help its aging secondary.

22. (9-7) Dallas Cowboys – OG Josh Beekman (Boston College) Dallas may have glaring needs in the secondary but I doubt they approach that part of the team in the first round after investing in Patrick Watkins in last year’s draft . Dallas could use a young interior lineman like Beekman to play opposite Marco Rivera. The weakest part of Dallas may be the OL and Josh Beekman would help solidify the interior.

23. (9-7) Kansas City Chiefs – WR Sidney Rice (South Carolina) Kansas City has needed a legitimate threat at WR for years and is one of the reasons they have not made that leap forward for years. Sidney Rice will stretch the field and open it up underneath even more for Tony Gonzalez and not allow teams to completely focus on Larry Johnson.

24. (9-7) New England Patriots (Seattle Seahawks) – OLB Lawrence Timmons (Florida State) New England has a few old LBs such as Tedy Bruschi and Junior Seau. Lawrence Timmons will bring youth to a LB corps that needs some speed. The defense of New England is simply getting old and slow so…

25. (10-6) New York Jets – DE Jarvis Moss (Florida) New York will not reach for S or RB with the players that are remaining and I believe they will re-sign DE Bryan Thomas after a solid year with 8.5 sacks. If New York re-signs Bryan Thomas they can pursue a speedy DE that can also play OLB in New York’s 3-4 scheme like John Abraham once did. OLB Erik Barton is just too slow and could be moved to ILB to add depth. A rush defense ranking 24th will be greatly helped by the athleticism of a player like Jarvis Moss.

26. (10-6) Philadelphia Eagles – OLB Jon Beason (Miami) Philadelphia knows that Omar Gaither at OLB is not cutting it and should shore up their OLB spot opposite Dhani Jones. Jon Beason will help give Philadelphia’s LB corps some youth and speed that it severely needs.

27. (10-6) New Orleans Saints – DT Quinn Pitcock (Ohio State) New Orleans needs to help its rush defense which ranked 23rd and I am not sure if they re-sign DT Hollis Thomas after the distraction he created. If New Orleans does re-sign Hollis Thomas, Quinn Pitcock is a solid DT that could also command double teams and that would really help an average at best LB corps in stopping the run.

28. (12-4) New England Patriots – CB Marcus McCauley (Fresno State) New England will not draft a WR in the first round after drafting WR Chad Jackson last year. New England was exposed in regard to its secondary versus Indianapolis and with the possible departure of CB Asante Samuel (they did release Ty Law), a playmaking CB like Marcus McCauley would really help an already young (besides Rodney Harrison) secondary.

29. (13-3) Baltimore Ravens – DE LaMarr Woodley (Michigan) Baltimore has to think that they might be without the services of Adalius Thomas next year and Baltimore goes as their defense goes and LaMarr Woodley is from the exact mold as Adalius Thomas. LaMarr Woodley would start immediately and make sure that the defense wouldn’t lose a step.

30. (14-2) San Diego Chargers – WR Dwayne Bowe (LSU) San Diego has not had a dominant WR in a very long time and Dwayne Bowe could step in and be their #1 WR helping in the maturation of an already talented Philip Rivers. This offense could be absolutely dominant with a solid WR.

31. (13-3) Chicago Bears – OLB Rufus Alexander (Oklahoma) Chicago is a very solid team in all areas but may need some help at OLB if Lance Briggs leaves via free agency. Hunter Hillenmeyer is solid too but Rufus Alexander could push him for the job or step in if Lance Briggs leaves.

32. (12-4) Indianapolis Colts – ILB Buster Davis (Florida State) Indianapolis needs someone who is physical in the middle that can stuff the run. Buster Davis would bring strength and toughness to the LB corps like Bob Sanders has done for their secondary. Stopping the run is obviously Indianapolis’ main priority this off-season and with Cato June and Rob Morris becoming free agents they may need depth at LB quickly.

Maybe not. Many people think he is overrated, and maybe the scouts will too.

Like the Cards pick but a better explanatiopn would be;

Will form a very good Rotation at DE with Berry Okeafor and Himself. Berry is oft injured and another young pass rusher should get him through a 16 game season healthy agains and well this year our Leading Sack man was Okeafor.

thomas was already signed midseason and will be around for a while. interesting pick with moss. ive heard he may play olb in the 3-4 and would play a similar role as woodley. im not sure if it is a good or bad pick but it would be interesting as moss has huge potential.

What the hell are you talking about? If anything Dhani Jones was the problem and he will be replaced by Chris Gocong. Omar Gaither played just fine for a rookie.

Bad pick and even worse reasoning.

Where do I start?

You're right, the Jets aren't going to reach for a safety because the Jets are set at safety for at least the next 6 years.

Bryan Thomas has already been re-signed to a five year extension.

Eric Barton isn't the starting OLB, he's the starting ILB. Victor Hobson is the starting OLB.

Jarvis Moss is a decent pick, Adam Carriker fills a bigger need though.
