Here is my first attempt at arranging this great class. I explained why i put each person where, but by all means feel free to comment and criticize. Im obviously not perfect....Due to the Samardzjia announcement Denver's and Baltimore's picks have changed.

1. Oakland Raiders-Jamarcus Russell QB LSU: This is just about a lock. The black hole desparately needs help on offense and a freak quarterback is not a bad start

2. Detroit Lions-Brady Quinn QB Notre Dame: Hate him or love him he has the tools to be an NFL quarterback and Jon Kitna is not the long term answer in Detroit. To bad team presidents can't be drafted or Matt Millen might be in trouble.

3. Cleveland Browns-Alan Branch DT Michigan: With an aging Ted Washington, the browns need a big body to fill that Nose Tackle position in the 3-4 scheme and Branch is the best DT available in the draft, and at 6'6 331 he's quite a load in that interior line.

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Calvin Johnson WR Georgia Tech: Probably the best pure talent in the draft. The bucs lack big play guys, so johnson is a nice fit to an offense that was very lackluster in 2006

5. Arizona Cardinals-Joe Thomas OT Wisconsin: With an offensive line that is rather offensive in my opinion, the Cards would salivate at the chance to nab this guy. Not positive he'll go this far, could go as high as two, but don't think the cards would pass on him at 5.

6. Washington Redskins-Gaines Adams DE Clemson: Andre Carter was a bust as a FA so the skins will be looking for someone to pressure the QB opposite Cornelius Griffin. Adams gets the slight nod over Jamaal Anderson.

7. Minnesota Vikings-Jamaal Anderson DE Arkansas: Obviously the Vikings biggest need is at WR, but in my opinion Ginn and Jarrett are a slight reach at this pick, so obviously trading down to get one of those guys is an option. With that being said if they do keep the pick Anderson would be a great addition to a defensive line that was the best run stopping unit in the NFL however DE Kenechi Udeze failed to record one sack this year so to help the 31st ranked pass defense a good pass rusher like Anderson would be a nice choice.

8. Houston Texans-Adrian Peterson RB Oklahoma: This guy in my opinion was the hardest to place, there a few teams ahead of Houston that would like to have him, but may have bigger needs so i think he'll fall to Houston at 8 who has a lot of uncertainty at RB. Hes no Reggie Bush, but he's still a great talent and Houston can't make the same bonehead descision two years in a row, or can they?

9. Miami Dolphins-Amobi Okoye DT Louisville: The Dolphins could have went the CB route, but with the DT dinosaurs Keith Traylor, Vonnie Holliday, and Jeff Zgonina all free agents the Fins have to look to retool at the position and with a 20 year old who started playing college ball at 16, Okoye has a ton of upside and the dolphins would be enticed to grab him at 9.

10. Atlanta Falcons-Leon Hall CB Michigan: The Falcons have depth problems in the secondary. They are looking to move jimmy williams to the safety position which would open up a spot for hall to work opposite Deangelo Hall.

11. San Francisco 49ers-Ted Ginn Jr WR Ohio St. With Antonio Bryant on thin ice as it is and the 49ers lacking a true # 1 WR Ginn is a good fit here to possibly become their homerun hitter at WR and KR.

12. Buffalo Bills-Patrick Willis LB Ole Miss: Willis is a reach here, but the Bills need to address their run stopping woes and willis is a tackling machine. He should help a defense that is young and on the rise.

13. St. Louis Rams-Lawrence Timmons LB Florida St: The Rams had one hard time stopping the run in 2006. Timmons is a fast sure tackling LB that could help out their defense.

14. Carolina Panthers-Laron Landry S LSU: The panthers don't have a long term answer at safety. Landry would give them a freakish safety in a defense that has talent up front.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers-Dwayne Jarrett WR USC: The Steelers have a lot of speed at WR, but not a lot of size and strength, with Hines Ward on the downside of his career, the steelers like Jarrett to be the guy Plax Burress was when he played there.

16. Green Bay Packers-MarShawn Lynch RB Cal: Ahman Green is a liability and The packs other 2 RB's are backups at best so Lynch who in my opinion is a steal at 16 would be a great option at 16. The Packers have so many needs though, they could go in about 100 different directions.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars-Reggie Nelson S Florida: The Jags have a stout front seven with a shutdown corner in Mathis, however the safety position is mediocre so Nelson who play like an Ed Reed type would be a nice addition to a very stingy defense.

18. Cincinnati Bengals-Tank Tyler DT NC State: The Bengals need some help in many places on Defense and DT is one of them. Tyler who burst on the scene in his senior year would be an improvement to a poor run stopping defense.

19. Tennessee Titans-Marcus McCauley CB Fresno St: The Titans need a corner to work opposite Pacman Jones and McCauley who is a physical and fast corner would compliment Jones nicely.

20. New York Giants-Darrelle Revis CB Pitt: The Giants were 28th in the league in pass defense. This move only makes sense

21. Denver Broncos-Jarvis Moss DE Florida Originally i had Jeff Samrdjzia at this spot, but he chose baseball, so Moss would be a a nice addition to a defense that hasn't recovered from the lost of trevor pryce

22. Dallas Cowboys-Levi Brown OT Penn St:The Cowboys have a need to fill on the line and brown is the best option at this point.

23. Kansas City Chiefs-Quinn Pitcock DT Ohio St:I think this guy is overrated, but im not the general manager of the Chiefs so here goes. Ryan Sims is a bust and the Chiefs have no depth at DT so IMO Pitcock will be the choice.

24. New England Patriots(from Seattle)-Daymeion Hughes CB Cal:This is a reach for this guy, but Samuel being a free agent might be on the move so a CB is on the list of needs for the pats, and IMO the Patriots could draft Kevin Federline and he would strive in that system.

25. New York Jets-Adam Carriker DE Nebraska: A strong DE with good drive, a little high for this guy, but would be a good fit for the 3-4 system.

26. Philadelphia Eagles-Michael Griffin S Texas: Michael Lewis may be on his way out so the Eagles will be looking for a Safety to take his place and Griffin would be a good tandem with Brian Dawkins.

27. Baltimore Ravens-Michael Bush: I originally had Jarvis Moss at this spot but with the Samardzjia move it shakes things up a bit so i think the Ravens will invest in a bruising back who fits their style.

28. San Diego Chargers-Robert Meachem WR Tennessee:McCardell is old, and Vincent Jackson is not a #1 WR so Meachem could give them another option at the position.

29. New England Patriots-Dwayne Bowe WR LSU: The pats need a big, physical WR to compliment the smaller speedier wideouts they current have so Bowe fits in well. The Patriots could draft Kevin Federline with this pick and somehow he would succeed, so im sure anyone they choose will work for them.

30. Chicago Bears-Justin Blalock OG Texas:Chicagos Guards are getting up in the years so a good young guard would be a good choice. If Michael Griffin falls to this point he would also be a good fit to back up a frequently injured Mike Brown.

31. New Orleans Saints-Paul Posluszny LB Penn St: The Saints had trouble stopping the run in 2006 and are very thin at the LB position so a sure tackler like Posluszny would be a good fit for them.

32. Indianapolis Colts-Rufus Alexander LB Oklahoma: Cato June could be on the move so a young talented run stopper would be nice for the colts atrocious run defense. DT is a bigger need but with the lack of a sure choice LB is the pick

Let me know what you think....be nice![/b]

We are not looking to move Williams to FS, wherever you heard this is wrong. Williams is our RCB and is going to stay our RCB. we do not need a CB, we need a S, DE or RB and would get S Laron Landry here.

its always safe to have JR number 1, but never hurts to put AP there either. I see a lotta mocks with Jarrett before Ginn but ya never know what could happen in the combine and stuff. pretty good job overall, not a bad mock.

Carter was not a bust. He was a beast last 5 games of the year, but good though. Skins

U DONT TAKE A NT IN TOP 5 (never in the history of the game, since the 40's when the 3-4 started... has a team drafted a dt (with the intent to put him at nt) ever.....

and our offense is by far the bigger problem

Steeler fans wonder how Matt Millan became the Steeler GM without a press conference. After picking not one but two WR on day one last year the Steelers deceide to get another one. All while the LB corp gets older (Farrior 32, Porter and Haggans 30) and closer to UFA ( Porter and Haggans in 2008). And While Rothlesberger has even more WR to throw to, his two starting OG are UFA in 2008 and possible his RT as well. I'm sure the 2nd round pick for the Steelers is a DB right?

The Packers need to get Marshawn Lynch. RB is their most pressing need. Then in the 2nd round get a CB which is their next need, possibly Daymeion Hughes will be available. Then in the 3rd get a big run stopping DT/NT. A return specialist on Day 2 wouldn't be bad also, but I don't know of any in the draft.

We would not take him this high. I could see this if we were able to trade out of the top five to a team that wants Johnson, Peterson, one of the Qbs if available. But if we stay at 3/4 we will either take Thomas or Peterson. If they are gone then we would be looking to trade out. Also I can't see Quinn going that high but with the lions who knows!
